18 months in prison for former chief of Jersey City Head Start

The former executive director of Jersey City Head Start, who used the program as his personal piggy bank from the moment he took the job, was sentenced today to 18 months in prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Robert E. Mays, 40, of Jersey City, was also sentenced by U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton in Newark to three years of supervised release and must pay restitution of $257,418. Mays pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud on June 7, 2016.

Mays took over as head of the Jersey City Child Development Centers Inc. (JCCDC), which provides early childhood development services and education to under-privileged children, in September 2013 and within two months he had illegally increased his salary from $96,500 to $155,000 by forging documents.

Government? "Jersey City Child Development Centers Inc."


It was likely a government contractor that received considerable amounts of federal, state and local funds to do its work. Anyway, what a P.O.S.

NEWARK — The former executive director of a former Head Start program in Jersey City Tuesday admitted that he diverted more than $250,000 from programs for underprivileged children and used the money for personal expenses, including a Maserati and a mink coat, prosecutors said.

Robert E. Mays, 38, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton in federal court to one count of wire fraud.

According to court papers charging him, Mays in 2013 forged records and duped employees at the Jersey City Child Development Centers into believing that its board of directors had raised his salary 61 percent to $155,000 after acting as executive director for only two months.

Mays was also arrested for domestic violence and kicked off Bruce Alston's campaign (as his - gasp - treasurer) as a result.

Source Article

Interesting to read the comments from 7/15 which indicated that Mays was already known to be an embezzler for a much larger sum in May of 2014:

"July 21, 2015 8:59 AM

JohnnyBGood writes: Wait, he was treasurer? Alston better look deeper into the history of those he allows into his campaign. He won’t have to look too deeply into Mays past to see he partook in swindling close to if not over 2 million dollars when he served as Executive director of jersey city child development centers, which was only in May of 2014. That once glorious agency has since lost its grant and has been taking over. Mays is nothing but a crook and apparently a wife beater, too bad he’ll get nothing but a slap on the wrist for this."


So he's terminated from JCBOE in April of 2013 for "conduct incapacity, unbecoming conduct, and neglect of duty against respondent" and he's still hired as an Executive Director of a child-centric organization. And FDU kept him on, too.

This guy had been fired from Snyder HS as dean of students and he managed to land this plum job? I wonder who he knows. Anyway, I'm sure he's sent his resume to McGreevey already.
