TPM submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for their mugshots, and so far we’ve got back photos of 14 of the defendants charged in New Jersey. Here’s Albert Cernadas, 75, AKA “The Bull” who was the President of International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) Local 1235.

According to the indictment, around every Christmas for the past 30 years, Cernadas and associates would extort payments from ILA port workers, taking their year-end bonus checks. Cernades is also accused of threatening to inflict harm on others. ||U.S. Marshals Service&&
