Ocean Gate NJ, former Ocean Gate mayor Paul Kennedy, who confessed to embezzling money from parking meters, auctioning government property online, and keeping the proceeds, was sentenced to three years in state prison today.

In 2022, while serving as mayor, Kennedy was apprehended for selling a 2008 Honda Pilot owned by the borough through an online auction platform called GovDeals.com. He deposited the $6,021 obtained from the sale into his personal account. He also engaged in the unauthorized sale of other government-owned assets.

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer remarked, “This is a textbook example of public corruption: the leveraging of one’s official public position to gain unlawful personal benefits.” He emphasized that the majority of public officials conduct their duties with integrity, unlike Mr. Kennedy, who exploited the trust of the citizens he was sworn to serve.
