Former Seton Hall basketball coach Bobby Gonzalez can avoid a criminal record stemming from his arrest on a shoplifting charge if he successfully completes community service and pays restitution over the next year. The decision was made a hearing Thursday in Newark.
“We are very pleased with the resolution of this matter,” said Gonzo’s attorney, Anna Cominsky, according to The Star-Ledger. “Bobby’s acceptance into the PTI Program is an excellent result. This is the type of case that doesn’t warrant a criminal conviction, but rather a dismissal – and that’s exactly what will happen at the end of the PTI term. All charges against Bobby Gonzalez will be dismissed.”
