Mezzacappa's Criminal Trial Scheduled For August

Tricia Mezzacappa may be a Republican candidate for West Easton Borough Council, but she's also a criminal defendant. She is accused of defrauding a secured creditor because she hid her 2008 RAV4 after it was levied on by the Sheriff, and refused to produce it at a Sheriff's Sale.  Magisterial District Judge Richard Yetter has already ruled there is sufficient evidence to send the matter for trial, and she had a pre-trial hearing today before Judge Craig Dally.

Represented by Public Defender Jim Connell, she has filed a motion to quash the charges on the basis that there was no levy. Of course, this is nonsense. Assistant DA Travis Weber counters that a levy is any assertion of title by the execution officer. It may consist of the sheriff's actual or constructive seizure of the execution defendant's property. That's what happened here, so I expect this motion will be denied.

Judge Dally has scheduled trial for August 4. If I understood him correctly at the pretrial, the case will be heard by Judge Leonard Zito, whom Mezzacappa has disparaged several times on her now defunct blog.

Given her defiance of judicial process, which includes an outright lie to a Deputy Sheriff, and her insistence on a jury trial, I have little doubt that she will go to jail AND be ordered to surrender the vehicle or pay its fair market value at the time I purchased it.

After the hearing, she could be seen lighting a cigarette, slipping on her walking shoes and hoofing it back to her home in West Easton.

There are several other Mezzacappa matters, and let me fill you in on them.

Fraudulent Transfer of home. - She fraudulently conveyed her home to her mother to prevent execution. Her mother, who has refused to convey the property back to her or to me, is believed to be an active participant in hiding assets. She filed a motion to dismiss a federal suit brought against her, seeking punitive damages and other relief. That motion has been denied.

Defamation judgment. - Mezzacappa's appeal of a $67,140 defamation judgment against her is scheduled to be heard by a panel of the Superior Court on June 24.

Defamation suits against me. - Mezzacappa has two defamation actions against me. In one matter, preliminary objections have been argued in Court. In the other case, pleadings are complete and I expect to file for summary judgment.

Defamation suit against Express Times. - She has also filed a defamation action against The Express Times, which has moved for summary judgment.

Updated 4:50 pm: Moving back to Jersey? That's what Mezzacappa has told a neighbor. She is remodeling the home for rental as apartments, with no inspections from West Easton officials. She reportedly will be moving in with her mother.

Small turnout for the poison posse most of whom would not have the gall to glance in the direction of a femme fatale like our protagonist. Bernie has a ginger lackey who most likely suffers from some type of emotional disorder, he's obviously the main instigator of negative comments and point man for the character assasaination for sport which has been documented on multiple formats.

O'Hare and his dastardly cronies will be served a very bitter pill in August which will no doubt be spun to appear as a victory.

Decades after losing his law license for moral turpitude golem doubles down on his behavior this time targeting a Republican woman on behalf of her D arch nemesis.

Judge Zito is VERY familiar with Ms. Mezzawhacky. He's warned her before about abusing public resources (courts) to suit her fancy and not justice. She's guilty of concealing an asset here - everyone including she knows she is guilty. She's just wasting our tax dollars on stretching this out. Plead guilty and get it over with.

Hoofing it back to West Easton? Couldn't somebody give her a lift? Do you know what this weather does to one's makeup and hair? It's hot enough to bake zito on the roof of a RAV4. Heartless!

Sorry to hear TM has resumed smoking, she is a platinum blonde stunner who is in her sexual prime tobbacco will shorten her window for breeding and furthering the strong Mezzacappa lineage.

Tricia if your reading this please quit the smokes you are a beautiful person and your body is a temple, one someday I would love to pray at.

@12:41PM You haven't seen her for a few years. She's a basket case now. If she had looks, they have taken a permanent powder. She has the gall to wonder why nobody looks at her. One look in the mirror gives the answer.

It's too bad you are so shallow that what you think about first are superficial things. You sound like the Lehigh Valley Nobody. This woman has turned to criminal activities, which is more important than the color of her hair. That's why she is in court more than walking the streets.

Bernie, all this could have been avoided by coming to the negotiating table back in 2013.

Egos are bruised, the point of no return has been reached now it is in the hands of Yahweh whose wisdom will dictate a just outcome.

No hard feelings, I'd like to catch up with you and Rick over a round of golf at Green Pond.

"Bernie, all this could have been avoided by coming to the negotiating table back in 2013."

You act as though i'm in some sort of distress. I'm not the one looking at a $67,140 judgment or facing criminal charges and likely jail time. That's her. She is the one walking home from court, for fear of being caught in her car. She is the one who has to look over her shoulder everywhere she goes. She is the one who in 2013 refused to even acknowledge that there was a judgment against her. On August 4, her saga will be over. After a brief trial, her bail will be revoked and she will be sent away.

She could start by taking responsibility for her actions. There is no indication she has any plan to do that - so she is likely headed for more self destruction. I have no sympathy for her at all. She defamed Bernie, she makes fun of an derides judges and lawyers, has no respect for the law, and she is wasting a large amount of public resources and victimizing Bernie over and over. All she has to do is pay her bill - which she has said she can do (with mommy's money, no doubt). She's made her bed and dragged her mom in with her.

TM's lawsuit has traction Bernie knows this, word on the street is with the right judge her judgment could far exceed the travesty awarded in Koury's kangaroo kourt.

4 years of lost income due to malicious blogger bile, median salary for an experienced RN is 45k * 4 = 140k plus emotional suffering.

This is a marathon not a sprint.

Bernie,how come no insurance carrier/ if she had liability with fire insurance,HO3 I would think under the Liability section .Even if she owned a debt free property who would go without the fire insurance coverage/Wasn't somebody put on notice

Bernie O'Hare said...

Peter, the first thing Orloski asked her to do was turn the matter over to her homeowners' insurer. She refused bc she knows better than everyone. Ironically, when her mother was sued over the fraudulent conveyance, she tried to stick it to her auto insurance.

Rosie Ruiz said...

"This is a marathon not a sprint."

Is that why she was walking today? Good marathoners don't smoke. She's about to get lapped. And it won't be the good kind by JG.

Peter J.Cochran said...

I would think you could notify the carrier yourself serve them ,then she would be out of your way and you could have justice at that point and she would resolve and stay out of your frying pan.

It doesn't work that way, Peter. The insurance company can deny coverage bc the insured failed to cooperate.

This is a sad situation. She has endured as much pain as Bernie. The two of them need to bury the hatchet and accept each others flaws. Sad to see a relationship go this sour.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I imagine she has endured a great deal of pain. She has established herself as a complete liar. She can bury the hatchet by surrendering the car, signing over the deed and making a cash payment for the balance of what is now a $72,000 judgment. The criminal charges are something she is going to have to take up with the DA. Until she accepts responsibility for defying judicial process and ddemonstrates remorse, I see no outcome other than jail.

you have infected every single corner of the judicial system and now criminal....wow, thats one bruised ego there

how much did you PAY for that car?

must be swell to be a court insider, getting a DA to collect your judgment

Bernie O'Hare said...

Mezzacappa, If I had any influence over this at all, you would have been in jail a long time ago. You have been charged criminally because you have defied judicial process. You removed and hid property after levy. Also, you flat out lied to the Deputy who levied on your car. After promising to meet him at the courthouse, you took off When a jury hears about this defiance, you are as good as convicted. If everyone acrted as you do, the judicial system would collapse and the result would be chaos. That is why you've been charged. You're a criminal, and you belong in jail. You have littered the blogosphere with enough lies and venom. Time for you to go away.

Anonymous said...

Here we have Mezzacappa obviously posting some of these comments, in violation of an order not to have direct or indirect contact with O'Hare.

We also have the Lehigh Valley Nobody chipping in the 4 year old claim that Bernie was spurned by Mezzacappa - which is laughable for multiple reasons. LVN should find something new to put on his stagnant blog. It's stuck in time, just like his mind.

Another idiot is suggesting there was some deep relationship Bernie and TM had that is sad to see broken - again laughable and downright absurd. They walked together for exercise a couple of times.

The bold facts are she defamed him, had a judgment levied against her with damages, and refuses to pay it. And now she may go to jail because she is totally out of her mind. It's really quite simple. That's a downright shame. If she were a more pleasant person, I might feel just a little bit sorry for her. But she's a nasty back itch. You can see her writing letters from prison like her buddy, claiming the judges were against her, Morganelli, Stoffa, yada yada and how there is no vegan cocoa available at chow time.

Ohare, I know you are disbarred, but if she fled from law enforcement then why not charge her with fleeing and eluding?

Maybe because its all a made up lie, and the Deputy himself told her to "take off"

Bernie O'Hare said...

Mezzacappa,at this point yuou are attempting to intimidate the witnesses against you by claiming they are liars. Witness intimidation is a crime, too. Stay off this blog. You are violating your bail conditions. i am sending this comment in to Pretrial Services.

The idea that only Mezzacappa posts on an open blog is silly. This entire affair is sad in many ways. People should not feel intimidated in posting on an open public blog. It is not against the law to have an opinion. Also this legal spat is far from anything that warrants an FBI investigation. You all should get over yourselves. That includes that woman from west easton government who is obviously posting her mocking commentary.

You all have too much time on your hands.
Stop wasting my tax money.

"if she fled from law enforcement then why not charge her with fleeing and eluding?"

How does it feel to be a total moron? Nobody claimed she fled or eluded. Learn English. Ignorance is not an advantage when dealing with the other human beings.

She's been charged appropriately - and she will lose her criminal case. Her mother will lose as well - the house transfer to shelter her assets is a clear violation of the law.

Henry N said...

@11:35 Agree, in part. The person wasting all our tax dollars is Tricia Mezzacappa. She feels she is above the law and doesn't need to pay court judgments. As a result, there is this criminal matter in which she concealed a vehicle that was levied.

She also fraudulently transferred her home to her mother. She is appealing an award she didn't bother to show up to defend, in yet another matter. And she filed two frivolous lawsuits against Bernie. Oh, and a PFA that was a pack of lies and promptly tossed. She has been admonished by at least one judge for wasting court resources.

It's obvious who is wasting our tax dollars. The woman who believes she is above the law.

In a local tavern on Butler Street today at about 9:50 today, a lot of the male clientele ran toward the window to ogle a thin blonde as she slowly made her way west on the south side of Butler Street. Intrigued, I paused from loading up the cooler with delicious Natty Ice for our soon to arrive welfare check customers, and rushed to the window to partake of the sight. Yeah, you were right, she WAS hoofing it towards Ridge St. as the LANTA 101 westbound bus blew by.....

For a person who claims another is wasting tax money, then turns an about face, becoming a hypocrite union lover, claiming people are not getting raises, vacancies are not being filled, and John Brown is the person to blame for all ills, take a look in the mirror and stop wasting county resources. If you want to collect a civil judgment, hire a debt collector, and stop wasting everyone's time. This is an insult to the thousands of crime victims in this county. Morganelli should stay at home, period. What a kangaroo county we live in.

Bernie O'Hare said...

"I must admit I dont know the mezza person or the history behind you two but it seems fascinating at first glance"

That history consists of five walks. I was trying to get in shape at the time, was walking, and she offered to be a walking partner. I have often had male and female walking and running partners, and though I appreciated the company, that was the extent of it.

Bernie O'Hare said...

At this point, I am deleting Mezzacappa's rants. You are not going to win your case here. You better surrender my car and sign over the deed to your house.

That's not really funny. That's witness intimidation and you are a Mezzacappa put up. I am not coming after her. The Commonwealth is. Anyone who defies judicial process as she has deserves the same fate.

Anonymous said...

Jersey Paul was here last fall or early winter, and claimed he didn't really know TM, but had met her once. He made a bunch of stupid posts, then deleted them all and went away. Now he is back by some coincidence - just happened to stumble in here and saw a TM post (what are the odds?), with some truly asinine comments.

What did TM do to earn a judgment against her? It's called defamation. Nobody is trying to "take" someone's house or home. Someone is trying to collect on a debt TM has said she could pay, but won't. She has criminally concealed what used to be her car but is now owned by Bernie, and fraudulently transferred her house to her mother. She is defying the law, and has everything coming she is about to get.

I find it shocking Jersey Paul believes this "jilted" line of nonsense that TM and her 2 supporters made up. Stick to the facts, Paul - TM defamed Bernie and that is the opposite of Bernie "coming after" her. I also find it shocking that he would threaten Bernie - primarily because he is supposedly just some observer with no horse face in the race - which is obviously not true.

What does disbarment have to do with the issue? Nada. Drink a couple more lite beers and fall asleep Paul - you're out of your league.

Jersey Paul has changed his tune. Last year, he was all "hey, I don't know much about this womman," and when several legal matters of TM's were brought to his attention, he said "wow, I hope she gets the help she needs." Then he abruptly deleted all his posts and went away.

Now the new, less kind Jersey is back. Threatening Jersey. Ignorant Jersey. I'd like to think he is some acquaintance who was trying to be a good guy, but his appearance here out of the blue on two occasions, and his latest epistles lead me to believe he is a shill.

An obvious shill, or just a troll. Who else would refer to her as a "young lady"? Neither word applies.

Peter J.Cochran said...

AHHH Bernie ,The fact she does not cooperate has nothing to do with the insures obligation to deal with you .When she paid the carrier she has a contract. The Name of the carrier should be in the paperwork when she illegitimately transferred here home to her mother.

Bernie O'Hare said...

It has everything to do with it. The insurer is insuring her, not me. His obligation is to her, not me. If she refuses to turn in the claim, they can den coverage on the basis of lack of cooperation. And no, the name is not listed when she transfers title.

Looks like "falsely criminalized" went the same direction of said blog. On 6/19/2015, Judge Dally dismissed Mezzacappa's motion to quash the information. Dally ruled that the charges are appropriate, and the criminal matter is ready for trial.
