MILTON MILAN was a former mayor of Camden and one of three Camden mayors to be arrested on corruption charges. Wikipedia describes him as follows:

Milton Milan is an american Democratic politician. He was the first Latino mayor of Camden, New Jersey, elected in 1997, before being convicted of corruption and subsequently removed from office, becoming the third Camden mayor in 20 years to be found guilty of corruption.

Milan grew up in North Camden and served as a United States Marine in the 1980’s. He was elected to City Council in 1995. During his first term as mayor, he was indicted on a 19-count corruption case, and convicted on 14 of those counts, among them:

– laundered $65,000 in drug money

– staged a break-in with his former business partner to collect insurance money

– used campaign money to pay for a vacation to Puerto Rico

– received two vehicles and thousands of dollars in free work on his home from city contractors

– authorized the shakedown of a $5,000 political contribution from the city’s public defender

The judge sentenced him to the maximum allowed under federal sentencing guidelines: seven years and three months in prison minus time served, and three years of supervision, plus barred from running for office. He spared Milan a fine, citing the lack of ability to pay. But was held responsible for $14,761 in restitution.
