New Jersey Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino has announced two new initiatives to fight public corruption:

a reward program offering up to $25,000 for tips from the public leading to a conviction for a crime involving public corruption, and

a program that offers lower-level defendants in a corruption scheme the potential to avoid prosecution if they reveal the crime to the Attorney General’s Office so more culpable defendants can be prosecuted.
