The sentencing for two Marlboro developers was postponed this morning without a new date
Edward Kay, 39, along with Steven Meiterman, 44, pleaded guilty in October in federal court to bribing former Western Monmouth Utilities Authority director Frank Abate for their developments’ sewer approvals. They were due to be sentenced in federal court today, but the sentencing was indefinitely postponed.
Kay, along with Meiterman and his brother Bernard Meiterman, 43, built more than a half-dozen housing developments in Marlboro.
Both brothers and their business partner Kay, admitted before U.S. District Court Judge Susan D. Wigenton that they paid $1,800 to an architect to draw up plans for an addition to Abate’s Marlboro home.
All three pleaded guilty to using the mail to promote and facilitate a corrupt payment.
Under such company names as Meiterman Custom Built Homes, Meiterman Development group LLC, Meiterman Holdings, Meiterman Properties, Meiterman Commercial Properties, Southpoint Property Management and Triangle Ridge at Marlboro LLC, the brothers have built more than a half-dozen housing developments in Marlboro including Sunny Acres and Triangle Valley.
Kay was a partner and bookkeeper for many of these projects and business
ventures, and was a signatory on the bank accounts of several projects.
In May, Abate, 61, was convicted by a jury of illegally receiving $4,800 worth of architectural plans from the Meitermans.
In August, Abate was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.
The Meitermans and Kay each face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
