Tale of the Unscrupulous N.J. Bounty Hunter

Tale of the Unscrupulous N.J. Bounty Hunter
BY PETER ASELTINE
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced that a bounty hunter who formerly lived in Jersey City was sentenced to prison for conspiring in a scheme to have sheriff’s officers sign false documents so he could collect additional fees by claiming to capture fugitives who already had been apprehended by police. He paid the sheriff’s officers for their aid. Two sheriff’s officers previously pleaded guilty to official misconduct and are awaiting sentencing.

Adel Mikhaeil, 50, of Stroudsburg, Pa., was sentenced to six years in state prison by Superior Court Judge Salem Vincent Ahto in Morris County. Mikhaeil pleaded guilty on Jan. 7 to charges of conspiracy, official misconduct, offering an unlawful benefit to a public servant for official behavior, commercial bribery, theft by deception and witness tampering, all of which were contained in a Sept. 30, 2008 indictment obtained by the Division of Criminal Justice Corruption Bureau. Mikhaeil admitted that, in addition to the scheme in which he bribed the sheriff’s officers, he paid bribes to an insurance company executive and an employee of a company that locates fugitives for bail bond insurers in return for giving him more business.
