FBI informant Solomon Dwek faces sentencing next month
Solomon Dwek, the FBI informant who became the linchpin in the government’s biggest corruption sting in New Jersey history will be facing the music for his own misdeeds next month when he is sentenced at US District Court in Newark.
Back in 2006, Dwek ran a real estate ponzi scheme and was caught depositing a fraudulent $25 million check at a drive by bank window. The next day he returned depositing another fraudulent check for the same amount as he was wiring money out.

An excerpt from from the Star Ledger story:
Dwek hopes his three year efforts on behalf of the government will see a reduced sentence from his plea deal of nine to eleven years.
It’s also been three years since Dwek made his rounds in Hoboken and Hudson County.
Ted Sherman’s, a co-author of “The Jersey Sting” has filed the full story for the Star Ledger:
