Robert E. Marzi, a 30-year-old former Monroe Township officer, was sentenced to two concurrent three-year sentences in prison. He is not allowed to have any contact with the two women.
He stood quietly as Superior Court Judge Robert P. Becker Jr. was reading the terms of the plea agreement to the courtroom that Marzi made with the state. Marzi also declined to speak before Judge Baker’s sentencing.
Marzi pleaded guilty to two counts of official misconduct in October after he was indicted. The first incident occurred on January 2016 when Marzi offered to help a woman with her charges if she performed a sexual favor. Later in the year, he offered to help a different woman with her moving violations if she performed a similar act. On both occasions, Marzi was on duty.
He later found contact information about the second woman, contacted her and implored not to talk about the arrangement. Marzi was eventually indicted in June and ultimately suspended without pay.
Marzi will be eligible for parole in two years. He will not be able to work for a public office ever again.
