Con Ed Hits "Son Of Sal" Murder Victim's Family With $734 Bill

Categories: Con Men

Had Mohammed Gebeli not been viciously murdered -- allegedly by New York's latest serial killer, Sal Perrone -- he probably would have continued to pay the electric bill at the Brooklyn store he owns, which just so happens to be the scene of his grisly murder. But Gebeli was murdered -- and now Con Ed wants his family to pay up.

In a letter dated November 6, four months after Perrone allegedly murdered Gebeli, Con Ed alerts the shopkeeper's family that they're on the hook for a $734 electric bill for the 77 days his Valentino Fashions clothing store was an active crime scene.

"Since we were unable to gain access to the meters, we are starting legal action for the removal of our equipment," Con Edison's letter reads. "If it is necessary to obtain a court order for a city marshal to repossess our meters, there will be a fee of $45."

The utility's credit operations also warned of a $115 collection fee, a $130 meter-removal charge and a $26 reconnection fee once the billing issue is resolved.

"You can prevent having your service turned off and avoid these extra charges by prompt payment of the total amount due," the letter reads.

Joseph Sdao Will Spend a Whole 12 Weekends in Jail for Bronx Playground Construction Scam

Categories: Con Men, Parks

Joseph Sdao is basically grounded for 12 weekends.
A city judge essentially sentenced Joseph Sdao -- a corrupt former project manager for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, who defrauded the city out of more than $30,000 -- to a 12-weekend timeout yesterday.

Judge Martin Marcus of Bronx County Supreme Court sentenced Sdao, 69, of Westbury, New York, to 12 weekends in jail and five years probation for a second-degree felony bribery charge that Sdao plead guilty to in August.

Apparently Sdao was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So "justice" was theoretically served.

"Corruption is insidious, especially when a city manager betrays the public trust by sharing confidential contract information in order to pad his pockets with cash," Rose Gill Hearn, New York City Department of Investigation Commissioner, says. "This defendant's corrupt conduct earned him a conviction and jail sentence."

Willard Lanham, Former DOE Consultant Who Stole Millions, Hit With Three-Year Prison Sentence

Willard "Ross" Lanham, 58, learned yesterday that embezzling millions of dollars in funds meant to bring Internet access to kids is not only a despicable thing to do, but it will also earn you more than three years in prison.

A Manhattan federal court judge sentenced Lanham to 37 months in jail for orchestrating an embezzlement scheme that netted him $1.7 million from the New York City Department of Education.

Lanham served as a consultant for the DOE from 2002 to 2008 on three projects designed to upgrade the technological infrastructure in city public schools. It was through the Power Connect project, which the DOE launched to bring Internet access to city public schools, that Lanham devised a scheme to skim the city out of the large sum of money.

Dr. Lanting operated his facility out of the first floor of his Staten Island home, where 50 to 100 "patients" a day would come to get their fix.

There's Always Room for Sand in the Jell-O

Sometimes crime is just tragic. Tragic like Hamlet. Tragic like Jell-O. Tragic like, in fact, the case of the Clements, an East Northport couple in their 60s arrested yesterday for purchasing packages of Jell-O pudding mix, filling them with sand, and returning them to the store for refunds, where the boxes were summarily restocked and sold to unwitting Jell-O-loving customers.
