Schroeder is a Trustee with the Leo P. McGuire Public Safety and Education Foundation, member of the Directors for Lakeland Bank Advisory Board, New Jersey/New York Fireman's Association, New Jersey Fire Chief Association and the Bergen County 200 Club.
In December 2012, Schroeder, whose businesses were allegedly in decline following the end of the war in Iraq, was indicted on counts of writing bad checks totaling more than $3.4 million, stealing over $1.8 million from loaners to use on debt and expenses rather than a housing venture he claimed to be pursuing, and misconduct by a corporate official. He refused to resign, but was vacated from his committee assignments and Deputy Minority Whip post in January 2013.
In March 2013, Schroeder pleaded not guilty to the charges. The state had offered Schroeder a plea deal stipulating a five-year prison sentence, restitution of about $5 million, resignation from the General Assembly and a lifetime ban from public office. Schroeder faces five to 10 years in prison, as well as a fine ranging upwards of $150,000.
Schroeder's criminal trial is scheduled for February 2, 2015.
