A graduate of Hofstra University and former member of the West New York planning board (an unpaid position), Joseph Roque, 25, was hired by the Hudson County Department of Roads and Public Property under Director Harold “Buddy” Demellier, multiple sources confirmed with Hudson County View this week.

Joe Roque was at the center of his father’s federal hacking trial in 2013 – with the U.S. Attorney’s Office alleging that the mayor and his son calculated how to hack Recallroque.com – and Felix Roque was acquitted of all charges.

However, Joe Roque was convicted of computer hacking, a misdemeanor offense.

U.S. District Judge Kevin McNulty sentenced Joe Roque to one year of probation, 100 hours of community service and a $2,500 fine for the hacking offense (h/t Cliffview Pilot).

No one could clarify with 100 percent certainty what Joe Roque’s job title, responsibilities or salary will be with the new position within the county.

Meanwhile, Felix Roque is embroiled in another legal battle, as the state Attorney General’s Office indicted him on charges of allegedly accepting $250,000 in a bribery/kickback scheme last month.

He pleaded not guilty in Bergen County Superior Court on Monday.

A county spokesman did not return calls or voicemails seeking comment.

    Figures. Probably just another made-up job, just like the one they gave Fior d’aliza Frias last year. How does the corrupt, evil, stupid dictator Roque have so much influence?

    I guess there are a lot of people in HC who are even lower than he is. How disgusting! Will somebody with some decency in HC politics please step forward.

  4. Joseph will not last long.
    He has never worked a day in his life.
    He is a lazy POS and probably a Liar also like his Daddy. We will opra his time card in a few weeks to see his attendance…

  5. hey Richie it’s easy to offend someone behind a computer screen let’s see you make those statements directly to him but then again you probably won’t

  6. Wait to the Pictures come out of Joseph Roque come out…. Stay Tuned West NY. The company he keeps and kept while on probation is enough to question his Honesty…
