The FBI was listening to Trenton Mayor Tony Mack’s cell phone calls for nearly six months under the authority of a court.
But that authorization ended two days after agents raided Mack’s home last summer, the NJ.com reports.
Government records now suggest agents continued to tap Mack’s phone, raising major questions surrounding the handling of the probe of the mayor of New Jersey’s capital city.
NJ.com wrote that defense attorneys are likely to challenges any warrantless wiretappings.
“It will come out at the time of motions,” said Jerome Ballarotto, a lawyer for Mack’s co-defendant Joseph “JoJo” Giorgianni.
