Probation for ex-mayor who lied

July 26, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A judge ordered former Atlantic City Mayor Robert Levy to serve three years' probation and pay a $5,000 fine for lying about his Vietnam War service to pad his benefits check.

During a sentencing hearing in Camden, U.S. District Judge Jerome Simandle also ordered Levy to repay the $25,000 in extra benefits he received as a result of the lies.

Known as the "missing mayor" because he dropped out of sight for two weeks last fall, Levy later admitted lying about what he did in the war.

He stepped down as mayor in October after admitting his two-week absence was to attend a clinic for treatment of substance abuse and mental health issues.
