A former New Jersey school superintendent and an insurance broker have pleaded not guilty to additional federal corruption charges.
The new charges of conspiracy and tax fraud are contained in a 27-count superseding indictment announced Dec. 7.
The two previously pleaded not guilty to an 18-count indictment accusing them of bribery, mail fraud and wire fraud.
Authorities say Ritacco and Gartland concealed more than $1 million in bribes from insurance brokers and other service providers.
Ritacco retired as Toms River superintendent on Oct. 21, the day he surrendered to the FBI.
