ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — A onetime Atlantic City, NJ official has been indicted by a grand jury on bribery charges.

Logan Holt, 54, of Galloway Township, spent a decade working in the mercantile division of the city’s Department of Licenses and Inspections.   It is alleged that he took cash bribes from taxicab drivers to get violations dismissed in court.

He’s also accused of taking money and sexual favors from a number of massage parlors in town in return for leaving them alone.

Holt faces three counts of bribery and one count each of official misconduct and conspiracy.  Each count carries a minimum five-year jail term if he is convicted.
