TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Two Essex County men have admitted their roles in a scheme to sell fake motor vehicle inspection stickers.

Johnnie Thompson Jr. of Irvington and Wallace Williams of Newark pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy and forgery charges. Thompson is 70 and Williams is 64.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says the case stemmed from an undercover investigation by the State Police Official Corruption Bureau in which a detective bought fake stickers from both men last year.

Thompson and Williams could face three to five years in prison.

Hoffman says two men running a separate scheme to sell bogus stickers in the same Newark neighborhood as Thompson and Williams were sentenced last year to probation and community service.
