Convicted NJ police chief's ex wants pension

Posted: Updated:

HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — The ex-wife of a convicted New Jersey police chief wants half his pension even if he's not entitled to anything.

Former Hackensack Police Chief Ken Zisa will be sentenced for official misconduct and insurance fraud on Thursday. A judge could decide that Zisa must forfeit his pension, which would amount to an estimated $11,000 a month based on his $191,000 salary.

His former wife, Mary McMorrow, says she's entitled to half under the divorce settlement that was reached before the crimes were committed starting in 2004.

Pension law attorney Leonard Whitman tells The Record newspaper ( ) McMorrow could get half of nothing. But Whitman says she might be able to argue she had a contract if a dollar amount was specified.
