Carlo Amato, the former owner of Chiropractic Care Consultants and Accident Recovery Physical Therapy in Lakewood, pleaded guilty to money laundering and theft by deception, the Ocean County Prosecutor's office said in a statement Tuesday.

If he is from Lakewood he has no problem. Just apply for amnesty, pay back a portion and start over.
Not one of the 159 that got off will go to jail why should he. He then can join the club and be anointed an " UNTOUCHABLE" No problem for him or anyone else who lives or operates in Lakewood.

Sounds right. If he makes an offer they will take it otherwise he can claim racism or some kind of discrimination. The city and state already created a precedent. He can reference the 159 untouchables. A sure fire win for him. The city and state will let him off not to upset the untouchables. No worries.

Sorry to say this is a fact. 159 cases of fraud in Lakewood. Over 2 million stolen and not one person will go to jail. Had to pay back only a percentage. The true amount is much higher,but it is being covered up as not to ruffle nay feathers. The mayor has his head in the sand just waiting for pension.
