Racial issue raised in Atlantic City prosecution
By WAYNE PARRY Associated Press Writer
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- As one notorious Atlantic City corruption case nears its end, another is heating up.
Schultz has applied to enter the state's pretrial intervention program, which allows nonviolent first-offenders to complete a period of supervision and avoid a criminal conviction.
That has infuriated not only his black co-defendants, but also many in the predominantly black city.
Schultz did not return a call left at his City Hall office. His lawyer, Edwin Jacobs, would not discuss specifics of the case.
