Judge permits Cafaro to go to Italy, England

Staff report


A federal judge in Cleveland has given John J. Cafaro, former Cafaro Co. vice president, permission to travel to Italy and England with his wife, Janet, between today and June 19.

Cafaro was sentenced a year ago to three years’ probation, fined $250,000 and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service by then U.S. District Judge Kathleen O’Malley, who has since become a federal appeals judge.

A condition of his probation is that he is not permitted to leave northern Ohio without the permission of the court or his probation officer.

U.S. District Judge Donald Nugent gave Cafaro, 59, of Hubbard, permission to take the European trip “for personal reasons” without objection from the probation officer or the U.S. attorney.

Cafaro drew the sentence after he pleaded guilty to making a false statement about a contribution he gave to the unsuccessful 2004 congressional campaign of his daughter, state Sen. Capri Cafaro of Liberty, D-32nd.

John Cafaro caused his daughter’s campaign committee to falsely report to the Federal Election Commission that he had given only $2,000 to her campaign, when, in fact, he gave an additional $10,000 in the form of a loan to a campaign staff member for the campaign’s benefit, the U.S. attorney said.

John J. Cafaro paid $16 million for Nuestro Paradiso in November 2007. Last week, Mr. Cafaro, a prominent Youngstown, Ohio shopping mall tycoon, was jailed at the Northeast Ohio Correctional Facility; he was later released on bond with electronic GPS monitoring.

Having already served 15-months probation over his 2002 guilty plea for bribery charges involving convicted felon US Rep. James A. Traficant, Mr. Cafaro awaits a June 8 sentencing after he pleaded guilty to the most recent charge surrounding false statements he made to federal authorities about campaign contributions to his daughter, Capri Cafaro, D-32, the minority leader of the Ohio state senate. Newspaper editorials are calling for Mr. Cafaro to be jailed; sentencing guidelines call for six months in prison and probation. Nuestro Paradiso is presently owned by the John J. Cafaro Family Trust.

Nuestro Paradiso features a 14,000-sq.-ft. main house, underground garage, tennis court, pool, beach house, and what appears to be a unique gambrel-shaped roof covering the mansion’s central rooms. Reportedly, the house’s melodramatic double staircase was featured in the film Tony Rome, a 1960’s Frank Sinatra epic.

Nuestro Paradiso is at 860 South Ocean Boulevard ,Palm Beach, FL 33480
