Cafaro now jailed in Youngstown

Published: Fri, March 19, 2010 @ 9:49 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Ex-shopping mall executive John J. Cafaro was transferred from Summit County jail to the Corrections Corp. of America’s Northeast Ohio Correctional Center on Hubbard Road Thursday afternoon, said David Kasulones, supervisory deputy U.S. Marshal.

Kasulones said Cafaro, 58, of Hubbard, was moved because it’s cheaper for the federal government to house prisoners at NOCC than in Summit County jail. The U.S. Marshal’s Service pays $101.66 per prisoner per day at Summit County jail and $76.90 at NOCC, Kasulones said.

Saying all necessary Cafaro financial records have now been provided to the federal court’s pre-trial services department, Cafaro’s lawyers asked Thursday for an expedited detention hearing to be held today, but there’s no word yet on whether U.S. District Judge John R. Adams in Akron will grant that request.

A detention hearing was set for 11:30 a.m. Monday when Judge Adams detained Cafaro at his Wednesday arraignment, saying he had refused to provide the financial information necessary for his bond to be properly set.

Cafaro pleaded guilty Wednesday to making a false statement concerning a contribution to the unsuccessful 2004 congressional campaign of his daughter, Capri Cafaro.

Capri Cafaro of Liberty, D-32nd, is a state senator and senate minority leader.

Wow. This is surprising. If everyone would have been transferred to this jail, then no big deal. If just JJ got special treatment, then it stinks.

And for the extra $25 per day, they should have billed JJ. Even w/o him providing his financial statement, we all know he can afford that.

The cost of moving him to Y-town would cost more than keeping him in Akron for a few days.

The judge is Laurel and we all knew who Hardy is.

This thing is a total joke.

Being in jail for giving money to your daughter's campaign. I'm sure there are more people worthy of being in a cage then this guy. When I go out on the town I'm not looking over my shoulder worried about J.J.

Well there ya go,...

For those of us whom were watching they just showed us all we needed to see. Where your intelligence was insulted by a " spokesman " providing a forked tongue tag line of saying this move is the result of frugal prudence. Where they're determined and focused on saving $25.00 dollars a day for what's to be a grand total of approx $75.00 dollars if he's given his bond hearing at the latest date of Monday.

Folks draw your own conclusion but it's fact that it cost more than that to transport him in this transfer. Unless Kingpin was that rapid of a flip in a 24 hour squeeze before pressure was let off in a manner like this. Then either I don't understand this club fed escort or I understand it with a distinct fluidity.

Now we know this ordeal has no teeth and they may as well stop the charade. Because they've just openly escorted an admitted and reputed criminal to his own residence. No matter if he's already outed 1 or 2 underlings or not the shame of it all has just been revealed.

If there was anything to really handling this guy the train of concession is. When you get such a pivotal figure in custody there's no loosening of the screws and there's no phony baloney $75.00 cost to be hailed as a foundation factor either.

That piddly $75.00 dollars could have and should have been assessed in recoup with the infraction fine and he stays exactly where he was originally incarcerated,.. PERIOD !!!

This is another showing for anybody who's ever pondered why the youth and an array of adults take the low road in regards to aligning with the illegal as opposed to the legal manner of making actionable choices,.. THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES !!!

You've got to be kidding,..

This is indeed a mockery but certainly not from the angle you're trying to spin. We're witnessing an absolute multi million dollar criminal being given gratuitous favors under the guise of some $75.00 dollar savings,.. what a bargain huh !!!

See that's not only an absurd farce it's an absolute interdiction of it's own ignorance via any angle you want to look at it,.. try,try and try again.

Where your contending such a crime head figure is of no personable threat to you. Is only non-baseless unless you're Capri or another of the family offspring,.. how cute.

See because fact is that such an individuals makes on the take minions pose perpetual hazard to the entire community,.. wanna try dispelling that?

To allege some whopping $75.00 dollars as budget saving as a brainstorm bonanza. Was or is to be in anyway believed to be the driving force behind this action is itself so far beyond ludicrous it's laughable,.. and in bad taste.

Right along with your " Come on man " contention being empirically preposterous. The disguised angle you came in her on is as sideways as a funky four cornered hat there,.. Man?

Although who's " man " you're posturing as is insidiously without question as either a make me rich family member or a cat in the Cafaro cradle as a make,.. your bumbling is just that blatant.

Not surprising it's a sham and a shame,..

This is a time where you're calling it right and you didn't miss a thing in how cleanly you've picked it apart.

I don't care what party emblem the criminal dons this is flat out indefensible and I can care less what party a citizen is aligned with.

This stinks of rotten injustice and as Independent, Republican, Democrat or whatever we can be and stand unanimously united in not appreciating nor condoning it,..
