Is Perjury The Basis for the Clifford Minor Indictment?

This morning word came of the indictment of former Essex County Prosecutor Clifford Minor on federal charges of bribery and obstruction of justice.

It turns out that another man -- already facing weapons charges and having had a previous criminal record -- was already arrested and charged in the bribery/obstruction case. Might that man be falsely claiming that Minor did something criminal in order to avoid his own jail time -- which as a repeat felon would be a harsher sentence?

It would not be beyond the realm of possibility for a convicted, repeat felon to turn against anyone, even his lawyer, in order to spare himself the consequences of his own actions.

On the other hand, the charges against Minor are the most serious, given that they come against an officer of the court and, in this case, a former cop, judge and prosecutor. Should the charges be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, Minor will have disgraced his Newark policeman's badge, the bench (the New Jersey judiciary) and the New Jersey bar.
