Tocchet Scheduled to Make Court Appearance
The state Attorney General’s Office announced the scheduled appearance. Spokesman David Wald would not say whether a plea deal has been reached in the case, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. Tocchet’s attorney, Kevin Marino, declined comment.
Tocchet, 42, was charged, with much fanfare, in February 2006 with promoting gambling, money laundering and conspiracy.
The AP story has a key reminder:
More than 15 months after the charge, Tocchet had still not been indicted, or formally charged by a grand jury.
Additionally, Tocchet’s been suspended without pay from his job as assistant coach with the Phoenix Coyotes.
