West Easton Borough Council Candidate Arraigned on Fraud Charges
After a preliminary hearing in March, Magisterial District Judge Richard Yetter ruled there was sufficient evidence to hold the matter for court. Deputy Sheriff SGT Michael Orchulli testified that Mezzacappa approached him as he was making the levy. She asked him to release the car to her, and agreed she would meet the Deputy at the courthouse to pick up the paperwork. He did so, but Mezzacappa broke her word and never appeared. She instead hid the car, and failed to produce it at a Sheriff's Sale.
Her trial is currently scheduled for July 6.
In addition to this criminal prosecution, Mezzacappa's mother has been sued in federal court for her participation in fraudulent conveyances of Mezzacappa's real estate and assistance in hiding her car. Mezzacappa is also an Additional Defendant, along with Jim Gregory, in litigation against a radio station that incredibly permitted and participated with the two of them when they conducted a series of defamatory broadcasts in 2013 that only ended with Gregory's arrest.
Naturally, Mezzacappa has filed two frivolous countersuits against yours truly. But in one of them, she actually admits she's a liar. She posts an apology, if you can call it that, made while my original suit was pending. I was unable to publicly discuss this admission before, but since she attached it as an Exhibit to one of her lawsuits and makes it an issue, I'll tell you what she says:
"I am a human being and reacted to Mr. O'Hare without thinking clearly. Perhaps I overstepped my bounds. I apologize to him for the comments I made. ... I went too far. ... Therefore, he has my most heartfelt apology."
She essentially admits the defamation, but has since claimed that was a lie.
She has still failed to turn over the car or sign over the deed to her home.
