"TRENTON — The last of four defendants in a bribery scheme that brought down longtime Toms River Regional Superintendent Michael J. Ritacco drew a federal prison term Monday, as did a former Toms River mayor who evaded taxes in an unrelated crime that shared a link with the corruption conspiracy.
Insurance broker Frank L. Cotroneo, 63, of Chester Township was sentenced to three years and a month in prison by Judge Joel A. Pisano in U.S. District Court, Trenton for his role in the Ritacco scheme.
He also was ordered to pay $3.2 million in restitution to the Toms River Board of Education and to forfeit $9.1 million to the government."
