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.
