Roque: Not Guilty of Commercial Bribery, State Jury Says

West New York Mayor and licensed doctor Felix Roque was acquitted Wednesday of criminal kickback charges in connection with his pain management practice.

Roque was vindicated by a jury, deliberating less than one full day after a two week trial in State Superior Court in Hackensack.

For Roque, it’s the second time he has beaten criminal charges. In 2013, federal prosecutors tried and failed to get a conviction on computer hacking charges.
