Millionaire real estate developer Charles Kushner is home.......he will be back at the firm he founded before his downfall on tax fraud and other charges. The one-time political heavyweight was released from a Newark halfway house Friday after finishing what remained of a reduced sentence.......
Kushner, a prominent philanthropist who has given millions to schools, hospitals and charities, and contributed to the campaigns of politicians including former Gov. James E. McGreevey, toppled from grace in 2004 after a lengthy investigation into his finances.
He admitted to making campaign contributions in the names of partners and cheating on his taxes by claiming $1 million of personal spending as charitable donations. Kushner also pleaded guilty to retaliating against his sister, a grand jury witness. He hired a prostitute to seduce the woman's husband and then sent a videotape of the episode to their home. On April 8, 2005, he reported to a minimum-security prison camp in Montgomery, Ala., to begin serving what was supposed to be a two-year sentence for tax fraud and witness retaliation. Less than a year later, he was transferred to the Fenwick Street halfway house in Newark.
While at the Alabama prison camp he applied for admission to a substance abuse program. Federal prosecutors launched an investigation to determine if he was lying or faked his way into the program. But ultimately filed no charges.
Federal inmates who complete the 500-hour program are eligible for immediate transfer to a less-restrictive halfway house. Federal authorities agreed to reduce his sentence and he entered the Newark facility on April 1. Four months before he would have been freed from the prison camp if he hadn't entered the treatment program, Kushner left the halfway house for home.

Why are you always trying to appear intelligent?
Nice crib. It could use a garden gnome or two, IMHO.
