DAVID FRIEDLAND

One of New Jersey's most infamous State Senators was David Friedland, a Jersey City Democrat who served from 1978 until 1980, when he was removed from office following his criminal conviction. While awaiting sentencing, Friedland fled the country and faked his death in a supposed drowning in the Bahamas. He was captured in 1987 while operating a chain of diving shops in the Maldive Islands.
