Solomon Dwek is out of the driver’s seat.
The former high-flying developer and more recently a witness in a sprawling New Jersey corruption case was taken to jail in Baltimore on Tuesday after his bail was revoked over his failure to return a Hertz rental car. In sending Dwek to jail, Judge Jose L. Linares of the District of Maryland called him “a consummate defrauder and an extremely cunning liar,” as The Jersey Journal reported.
Dwek has already pleaded guilty to a huge bank fraud and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors (see our earlier report). Paul J. Fishman, the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, and his prosecutors have been counting on Dwek to help put their case together, so they’re probably glad that Dwek’s travel range has been limited. But they probably wish the judge hadn’t called him a liar.
