TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Two ex-allies of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie convicted in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing trial last fall have filed formal notice that they will appeal the verdicts.
Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni filed notices Monday on taking their cases to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The notices didn’t provided specific details about the appeals.
The two were convicted in November of wire fraud, conspiracy and misusing the bridge for improper purposes. They were accused of creating a colossal traffic jam in 2013 for political revenge.
Baroni was Christie’s appointee to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. He was sentenced to two years in prison. Kelly had served as the Republican governor’s deputy chief of staff. She got 18 months.
Both remain free on appeal.
