Sons of Slain Clark Woman Have Criminal Records

Anthony Pecoraro was convicted for promoting online gambling in 2007 and Theodore Pecoraro pleaded guilty to bookmaking charges in 1993.

The sons of Vera Pecoraro, the  woman found dead in her Clark home, both have criminal records, according to court records and published reports.

Anthony Pecoraro of Colts Neck, the son who prosecutors say discovered his mother's body, was convicted for promoting online gambling in 2007, according to court records cited by the Somerset County Prosecutor's office. He later pleaded guilty to knowingly promoting gambling.

Another son, Theodore Pecoraro, pleaded guilty to bookmaking charges in 1993 and was sentenced to county jail time, according to a report today in The Star-Ledger.

The paper also reported that Anthony Pecoraro is currently out on a $1 million bond, secured by his Colts Neck house, after being convicted of evading IRS requirements concerning the use of corporate bank checks. 

Anthony Pecoraro's 2007 gambling arrest was the subject of a December 2007 story on NJ.com. Arrested with him was Todd Richard Burger, a former NFL (Jets and Bears) lineman, Clark native and Arthur L. Johnson alum.
