TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Two former North Bergen Public Works supervisors are going to prison for assigning employees to work on election campaigns and to perform work for them or their boss.

A judge sentenced 49-year-old Troy Bunero of North Bergen and 50-year-old Francis Longo of Ridgefield Park to five years in prison without parole. They will remain free while they appeal their convictions.

They were convicted in June of conspiracy, official misconduct and unlawful taking and misapplication of government property. Bunero also was found guilty of tamping with public records and submitting false timesheets.

Both forfeited their jobs when they were found guilty.

Their former boss, 70-year-old James Wiley, pleaded guilty in 2012 to having township employees do work at his home and assign them to work on election campaigns. He awaits sentencing.
