Coniglio watch: it took jurors three days to convict Wayne Bryant (Oink! Oink!), six for Sharpe James

Jurors on the federal corruption trial of former State Sen. Joseph Coniglio (D-Paramus) are now in their fourth day of deliberations – an amount of time that is somewhat typical of recent trials involving elected officials. Others:

  • Sharpe James, a former Newark Mayor and State Senator, convicted on sixth day of deliberations
  • Wayne Bryant (D-Lawnside), a former Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman, convicted on third day of deliberations
  • Nidia Davila-Colon, a former Hudson County Freeholder, convicted on third day of deliberations
