Newark: Former Court Clerk Gets 34-Month Term for Taking Bribes

Louis March, former clerk at the Newark Municipal Court clerk is getting 34 months in federal prison and was also fined $1,500 on Tuesday.

March pleaded guilty to extortion through his clerk position. He admitted taking $4,000 in bribes to blot out a criminal record for someone he thought wanted to pass a
background check by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security – too bad for him, it was an undercover agent posing as the boyfriend of someone who wanted a job at LaGuardia Airport.

The 38-year-old was removed from his post after his arrest in March.
