Murderer Sean Caddle faces eviction from Sandyston home

Former political consultant who pled guilty to hiring a hitman is set to be sentenced in March

Sean Caddle, the former political consultant who admitted his role in the murder of a former Jersey City political personality last year, faces eviction from the Sussex County home where he has been on house arrest under a $1 million bond.

Matthew and Karen Meenan, who own the Sandyston townhouse where Caddle and his family live, alleged in a court filing last month that Caddle owes $7,410 for unpaid rent from October, November and December.

Cherekana Feliciano, a landlord-tenant specialist for the New Jersey Courts, has scheduled a case management conference for January 17.

Caddle’s sentencing date has been rescheduled twice and is now set for March 22.  But sentencing dates are frequently moved, depending on still unknown reasons for his home confinement and the status of any cooperation with other federal investigations.

He admitted in U.S. District Court in January 2022 that he hired a hitman to murder James Galdieri, a small time Jersey City political operative and the son of the late James Galdieri, a former state senator.

Caddle acknowledged that Galdieri had been his friend.  The hitman, a career criminal from Connecticut named George Bratsenis, pled guilty to the 2104 murder two months later.  Bratsenis and his accomplice, Bomani Africa, stabbed Galdieri and then set his apartment on fire.  He met Caddle outside an Elizabeth diner and accepted “thousands of dollars in cash” the following day.

He worked for then-State Sen. Raymond Lesniak (D-Elizabeth) and others and ran several dark money super PACs.

Caddle also faces a 2019 lawsuit for defaulting on a car loan for a 2013 Nissan Murano  The case was transferred from Hudson to Sussex County in October.   The car was reprocessed in 2019 and was sold for $3,400, with Caddle allegedly owing $10,336 in payments and penalties.  No trial date has been set.

In October 2021, Caddle was sued for non-payment of an $862 credit card bill and a judgment was ordered.
