PATERSON, NJ - A man who helped authorities track down the killer of a Paterson police officer in 2007 has sued the city, alleging he was short-changed on the $60,000 reward that was promised.
City resident Eugene James says in the lawsuit that he received just $20,000 of the reward money, according to a story on northjersey.com.
James provided information that lead police to Teddy Charlemagne, who killed Police Officer Tyron Franklin during a robbery at a take-out chicken restaurant in January 2007. Franklin pleaded guilty to killing Franklin in March 2008.
James' case against the city is scheduled to go to trial in December, according to northjersey.com.
