PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - In a story Nov. 30 about an FBI probe in Paterson, The Associated Press reported erroneously on which building was raided by agents and where a prisoners’ re-entry program was housed. The raid was on city office buildings, not a building housing the New Jersey Re-Entry Corporation. Also, the program is based in a church-owned building, not a city building.

A corrected version of the story is below:

McGreevey moving prisoner re-entry program

Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey expedited plans to relocate the prisoners’ re-entry program he oversees in Paterson after an FBI raid of city offices

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey says a raid of city offices in Paterson “expedited” his decision to move the prisoners’ re-entry program he oversees there.



Officials said the FBI in November searched for documents related to Paterson’s use of federal funds to renovate a building that housed the New Jersey Re-Entry Corporation. McGreevey says the nonprofit subleased space in the building, which is owned by a church.

McGreevey’s nonprofit hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing.

According to McGreevey, the organization would’ve eventually had to move out of its current space to accommodate its growing number of clients.
