JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - The FBI says a Hudson County freeholder was not the target of an investigation or forced to testify at a computer hacking trial.

The FBI tells The Jersey Journal (https://bit.ly/1lNRuhj ) Freeholder Jose Munoz was a victim and had provided information voluntarily that led to the conviction of the son of West New York Mayor Feliz Roque.

Joseph Roque was sentenced to one year of probation and community service. His father was acquitted of conspiracy and gaining unauthorized access to computers after Munoz created a website calling for his recall.

Freeholder Bill O’Dea had asked the FBI to respond after other freeholders questioned whether Munoz had done something wrong.
