Operation Slapshot Trooper to Be Sentenced
Updating the saga that was “Operation Slaption”, James Harney, the New Jersey State trooper involved in the gambling ring, will be sentenced today, almost a full year after pleading guilty.
He pleaded guilty on Aug. 3, 2006, and faces up to seven years in prison for conspiracy, promoting gambling and official misconduct. His lawyer, Craig Mitnick, was planning to argue for a less severe sentence.
