Sharpe James’ attorney asks judge to overturn guilty verdicts or grant new trial
Ha! So much for our former mayor saving Newarkers tax dollars. If we know anything about Sharpe, it’s that he’ll drag this out as long as he has to to get a deal.

An attorney for Sharpe James today urged a federal judge to overturn the corruption verdicts against the former Newark mayor or grant him a new trial.

Almost two months after a jury convicted the legendary mayor of conspiring to help his onetime mistress buy cheap city land, James’ defense argued in new filings what it had contended during the trial: Prosecutors repeatedly failed to prove a crime.
