TRENTON — Attorney General Stuart Rabner and Criminal Justice Director Gregory A. Paw announced that a Vineland man was sentenced today to state prison after he was convicted of using a fraudulent check to obtain two luxury automobiles.

According to Director Paw, Robert Bradley III, 22, of Vineland, was ordered by Superior Court Judge Albert J. Garofolo in Atlantic County to serve three years in state prison. The sentence followed an October 2005 jury trial in which Bradley was found guilty of second-degree theft.

Bradley’s mother, Rene Bradley-Williams (aka Rene Robinson), 47, also of Vineland, a former Gloucester County probation officer, was sentenced on Feb. 4 by Judge Garofolo to 12 years in state prison. During the same trial in October 2005, Bradley-Williams was convicted of multiple counts of second-degree theft by deception, third-degree uttering a forged instrument, third-degree theft of services, and fourth-degree unsworn falsification to authorities.

The jury in the three-week trial found that on Oct. 22, 2002, Rene Bradley-Williams and Robert Bradley III purchased two 2003 Lincoln Navigators from Seaview Lincoln Mercury in Egg Harbor Township using a fraudulent $125,000 check.

In addition, the jury found that in October 2002, Rene Bradley-Williams purchased or attempted to purchase other luxury automobiles with fraudulent checks. In each case, the check purported to be drawn on the account of a real or fictitious law firm. A joint investigation conducted by the Department of Labor and the Division of Criminal Justice determined that, in actuality, the account number and bank listed on the fraudulent checks corresponded to an account belonging to the State of New Jersey, Division of Temporary Disability Insurance.

With respect to Rene Bradley-Williams, the jury determined, among other things, that on:

  • Oct. 22, 2002 -
    Bradley-Williams used a fraudulent $23,000 check as payment to the Veterans Affairs Federal Credit Union to pay off an outstanding loan;
  • Oct. 19, 2002 -
    Bradley-Williams purchased a 2003 Jaguar S-Type-R from Holman Motorcars in Egg Harbor Township using a fraudulent $67,000 check;
  • Oct. 18, 2002 -
    Bradley-Williams purchased a 2003 Mercedes Benz SL55AMG from Precision Cars of Atlantic City using a fraudulent $180,000 check;
  • Oct. 17, 2002 -
    Bradley-Williams purchased a 2003 Mercedes Benz CLK 500 from Precision Cars of Atlantic City using a fraudulent $50,000 check;
  • Oct. 15, 2002 -
    Bradley-Williams attempted to purchase a 2003 Lincoln Navigator from Quality Lincoln Mercury in Millville using a fraudulent $25,000 check.

Deputy Attorney General Mark C. Kurzawa of the Division of Criminal Justice - Financial Crimes Bureau prosecuted the case. State Investigator Gary O’Brien of the Financial Crimes Bureau coordinated the multi-agency investigation. Additional investigative support was provided by the Department of Labor and the Atlantic, Cumberland and Gloucester County Prosecutor Offices.
