State v. Robert K. Thompson, et al.

08-01-08 A-2279-07T4

Violation of the Conflicts of Interest Law and a corresponding Code of Ethics of a department of State government, standing alone, does not provide a basis for criminal prosecution for official misconduct. We affirmed the dismissal of counts containing such charges. But when such violations are combined with official acts benefiting or intending to benefit the party with whom the public official has a conflict, official misconduct may be charged. We reversed the dismissal counts containing such charges.
