Elwell found guilty of bribery

A federal jury today found former Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell guilty of bribery and not guilty of other charges in the Hudson County Democrat’s corruption trial.

One of the politicians nabbed in the infamous 2009 federal dragnet chronicled in “The Jersey Sting,” Elwell escaped two charges of extortion but could not evade the bribery charge.

The jury today concurred with the prosection that Elwell took $10,000 from disgraced developer Solomon Dwek.
