Ridgefield Mayor Anthony Suarez has been found not guilty on all counts against him.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged Suarez last year as part of a corruption sting that netted 46 people, including tax preparer Vincent Tabbachino.
Suarez was accused of taking a $10,000 bribe from government informant Solomon Dwek in exchange for fast-tracking a Dwek project.
This past summer, Suarez survived a recall election to hold onto his mayor’s seat.
The jury found Tabbachino guilty of one count each of attempted extortion and bribery for offering and agreeing to give a corrupt payment to Suarez, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman said.
