Public works director Manny Ojeda was sentenced to one-year probation on Monday for allegedly assaulting an unidentified victim, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes said in a late Monday afternoon news release.
Ojeda, 48, of Clifton, pleaded guilty to simple assault before Passaic County Superior Court judge Donna Gallucio. He was arrested following a domestic dispute on Nov. 4, 2017 in Clifton, said authorities.
Authorities said Ojeda spent seven days in the Passaic County Jail. He was suspended without pay from his $117,600 post in Paterson on Monday morning, according to mayor Jane Williams-Warren.
