TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - September 8, 2008
Former state Sen. Wayne Bryant is facing charges that he got
jobs with two public agencies to boost his state pension.
Prosecutors say little or no work was required for his positions
with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the
Gloucester County Board of Social Services.
The 60-year-old lawmaker from Camden County retired from
politics this year after a career that included a stint as the
chairman of the state Senate budget committee.
Jury selection began Monday morning in federal court in Trenton.
Opening statements by prosecution and defense lawyers could take
place later this week.
