A date of April 1 was set for the trial of the head of the Ocean County Republican Club on tax evasion and related charges.

  There has been a lot of interest in the case of George R. Gilmore, whose law firm, Gilmore & Monahan, services several municipalities.

  He was indicted on six counts by a federal grand jury: one count of tax evasion; two counts of failing to collect, account for, and pay over payroll taxes for two quarters of one year; two counts of filing a false tax return; and one count of alleged loan application fraud.

 His attorney Kevin Marino confirmed the trial date. Marino is a founding partner of Marino, Tortorella & Boyle, P.C. of Chatham. The last step in the case was a pretrial hearing on March 8 for the government’s motion to determine if there are any potential conflicts of interest since Marino’s firm represents Gilmore as well as Gilmore & Monahan, its partners and employees.
