CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey man has been convicted of trying to bribe a government official so he could get a higher price for an Atlantic City property he was selling.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says Anthony Christaldi faces up to 10 years in prison when he’s sentenced Dec. 4. The 70-year-old of Cape May Court House man was found guilty Friday of bribery.

Prosecutors say Christaldi offered a $10,000 cash bribe to a Casino Reinvestment Development Authority official after the agency rejected his application to sell his property to their land bank program in 2014. But the official notified the agency’s lawyers, who notified the state Attorney General’s office.

Prosecutors say Christaldi was arrested when he delivered $9,000 in cash to a detective posing as the official’s brother.
