J.J. Cafaro released from jail today on $50K bond



Published: Mon, March 22, 2010 @ 12:26 p.m.

AKRON — A federal judge has ordered John J. Cafaro, the former shopping mall executive, released from detention.

At midday today, after a 30-minute court hearing, U.S. District Judge John R. Adams released Cafaro on $50,000 unsecured bond pending his 10 a.m. June 8 sentencing.

As conditions of his release, Cafaro must submit to and pay for electronic location monitoring and cannot leave northern Ohio without the court’s permission.

Cafaro, 58, of Hubbard, was to be returned to the Corrections Corp. of America’s Northeast Ohio Correctional Center in Youngstown and released from there this afternoon, said Justin Roberts, an assistant U.S. Attorney handling the case.

Judge Adams detained Cafaro at his Wednesday arraignment, saying Cafaro had refused to provide the financial information necessary for his bond to be properly set.

But his lawyers subsequently submitted his federal tax forms for recent years and other financial information to the court late last week.

Cafaro, who retired as vice president of the Cafaro Co. on Dec. 31, pleaded guilty Wednesday to making a false statement concerning a contribution he made to his daughter, Capri Cafaro’s, unsuccessful 2004 congressional campaign.

Does any of this really surprise anyone? Is Capri next?

"As conditions of his release, Cafaro must submit to and pay for electronic location monitoring and cannot leave northern Ohio without the court’s permission."

As if JJ could or would sneak off .

Will JJ get probation on his 10 a.m. June 8 sentencing ?

I am thinking that Mr. Cafaro will pay a hefty fine and receive no jail time. But, I have been wrong before. Is Capri next on the list?

Capri will not get in any trouble at all over this. None!

Capri's problem was tax fraud at US Aerospace a decade ago (whistle-blown by Detore to Morford).

J.J.'s perjury about having bribed Traficant got Capri off the hook for that -- Detore's whistle-blowing was never investigated by Morford.

However, there is NO statute of limitations on perjury, so J.J. and Capri are ALWAYS in jeopardy for the rest of their lives.

And J.J.'s life is likely to be longer after he loses weight in prison!
