16 September 2012. A former superintendent of Toms River Regional, Michael J. Ritacco, was sentenced to 135 months in jail. The federal judge noted that this was the worst case of public corruption he has ever seen. It was revealed in the court that as much as $2.5 million in bribes were allegedly passed between Ritacco, insurance brokers and intermediaries. As part of the plea Ritacco will forfeit $1 million dollars, his 2010 Mercedes E550, and $8,960 from his home found as part of an FBI raid.
