Former EHC Detective Receives Suspended 5-year Sentence for Official Misconduct

MAYS LANDING – A former Egg Harbor City Police Detective was sentenced today for official misconduct, by exploiting his position as a police officer in order to engage in sexual conduct with several women, Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain announced.
On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, Steven Hadley, 31, of Port Republic, was charged with four counts of second-degree official misconduct.
The charges specified that Hadley committed acts related to his office that constituted unauthorized use of his official position as a police officer in order to obtain benefit for himself, specifically sexual conduct. 

The State alleges that, while performing his official duties, Hadley took part in sexual acts with four different women on various occasions, spanning the period of January 2010 through May 2013.
On Oct. 21, 2014, Hadley waived presentation of the case to a Grand Jury and pled guilty to the accusation. In accordance with a plea agreement, Hadley pled guilty to one count of Official Misconduct, a crime of the 2nd degree.
Today, Hadley was sentenced by Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Michael A. Donio to a 5-year suspended prison sentence, and no future contact with the victims.
Judge Donio, at the request of the State following Hadley’s entry of a guilty plea last month, issued an order forfeiting the defendant’s public position and pension benefits, and forever disqualifying Hadley from holding any office or position of honor, trust or profit under this State or any of its administrative or political subdivisions.
First Assistant Prosecutor Diane Ruberton represents the State in the case.
