Star Ledger: Newark councilwoman Rone guilty of interfering in traffic

Newark councilwoman was found guilty this evening of interfering at a police traffic stop involving her nephew last year. The Central Ward councilwoman was charged with blocking Rutgers-Newark police on Dec. 20, 2006 after they stopped her nephew, Jameel Grant, for a traffic violation.

It was not immediately clear what impact, if any, today’s conviction would have on her position with the city. She will face fines as punishment.

An embarrassment to councilwoman Rone, but probably not career-ending.
