NJ State Trooper pleads guilty in Tocchet case

    A former New Jersey state trooper pleaded guilty Thursday to helping run a gambling ring and promised to help authorities with their case against former hockey star Rick Tocchet and others.

    In a negotiated deal, James Harney, 40, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, promoting gambling and official misconduct. He faces up to seven years in prison at his sentencing Oct. 27.

    He had initially faced more than 25 years in prison.

    So they let the dirty cop roll so they can go after a hockey player? ?

    I thought they would have done it the other way around

    It's the U.S. They don't like hockey. If Tocchet had been a baseball player ... :D
  3. A soccer player would be facing the electric chair.
