The 44-year old con man, who was arrested by the 108th Precinct, had his day in court. We have been told he took a "plea" deal and the little creep only received a sentence of 60 days. Oh, don't assume he'll spend the entire 60 days in jail - knowing how the system works he'll probably be released early for "good behavior". If we find out when he's released we'll notify you. It is very upsetting to know that this individual received so little time after he conned dozens of kind-hearted residents in Maspeth, Elmhurst and other communities for money by telling them he needed it to pick up a prescription for his sick mother. Rest assured this creep will soon be back on the street pulling his scam on other unsuspecting people. Hopefully people will call 911 not if, but when he comes back to our neighborhood. We want to thank everyone for getting the word out. We especially want to thank and commend those of you who were victimized and stepped forward. COMET plans to give the officer who arrested this creep an award at our February 7th meeting. We do not meet in January.
