Ex-cop gets slap on wrist for involvement in straw donation scheme to help Eric Adams’ mayoral campaign


A former police officer received a slap on the wrist after pleading guilty Monday to orchestrating a straw donation scheme to help Eric Adams’ (D) mayoral campaign.

Dwayne Montgomery pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy, a class A misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail, according to a copy of the plea agreement obtained by Politico.

As part of the deal, Montgomery admitted to conspiring with others to make an “illegal contribution to the Eric Adams 2021 Mayoral Campaign… which disguised the true source of the funds being contributed,” it read. Montgomery “directed straw donors to make contributions to the Campaign, and the funds for the contributions were reimbursed by the Defendant and others.”
