If he didn't pay state taxes, did he pay Federal Taxes???? Maybe someone out to look into his spending practices with town money, since he seems divert Water District money from one area to another so one area can't get water now because he spent the county water district money on another job, If this happened to you or I the state would have put a claim on wages, house, cars, bank accounts etc way before now, why not him. I don't care if he pays, but there should be more than monitary penalty, take away his Law license. How can he represent people or judge people when he's "depressed". Supervise his business, balony. What about his Accountant Mr. Trento, why didn't he do something for his so called friend???????

Yeah,Rich Miller is a good judge of character. He's been a shady businessman for years. If he's endorsing Mr. Lester,I'd have to say "guilty as charged".
I wonder what rock Rich Miller crawled out from under, must have been patroling the streets to get his face on TV. Lets all look into the Town Financial Spending Before Its TOO Late.

I certainly agree that every citizen should pay their taxes, but the bigger question this raises is how much of our taxpayer money was spent chasing down $60k? And now going to be spent in each of the court cases?
Doesn't seem like a very wise decision. Maybe this could have been dealt with by an audit or other notification by the state prior to their arrest?
Mike Green, I really question your motives here.
You need to consider a few things:
1) If you don't prosecute crimes that cost less than the cost of prosecution, you're, in essence, legalizing 'small crime'. Once that happens, 50% of the state residents could just quit paying taxes, shoplift almost anything they wanted, and ignore any law that didn't cost $50,000 or more.
2) Lawyers can drag things out for a long time, increasing the cost for prosecution. They would be virtually exempt.
3) People won't follow any laws if they know they won't be prosecuted. Very simple

CABLE 12 WEST IS A PUBLIC ACCES tv STATION. RALPH ESPOSITO HAS NOT PROVIDED THIS STATION WITH ANY MEAN OF PUBLIC MONEY. THE PUBLIC MONWY HAS GONE RIGHT INTO RALPH ESPOSITO'S POCKETS. WHY DO YOU THINK HE IS RETIREING. IT BECAUSE HE IS CLOSE TO BEING THROWN IN JAIL IF HE CONTINUES ON HIS CURRENT PATH. RALPH ESPOSITO HAS LAUNDERD MONEY TO HIS FREINDS AND FAMILY FOR YEARS AND NO ONE WILL DO A THING ABOUT IT. HE IS PRIOR GOVERNMENT AS WELL SO GOOD LUCK THIER. GO LOOK AT SOME OF THE PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY HE NEGLECTS WHY BECAUSE IT DOESNT EFFECT HIS OWN NEIGBORHOOD. RALPH ESPOSITO WAS CAUGHT WITH A PROSTITUTE BEHIND THE DIPLOMATE HOTEL YEARS AGO AND NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT IT. TAKE A LOOK AT SPITZER HE WAS THROWN OUT IN THE TOWN OF GATES IT IS GIFTED WITH YEARS OF PUBLIC EMPLOYEEMENT

Even my cousins darryl & his brothers would have known to file their taxes. Everybody Knows you have to file every year. How lame the excuses, not unexpected but lame.

He's a lawyer; he files a lot of rather complicated paperwork all the time, however, the NYS tax return forms is 'too complicated'. Who's buying that line of bull?!?!

What does this have to do with Ralph Esposito? I guess I'm confused. I didn't see anything in this story about him. Last I heard he was retiring from his position as Gates Town Supervisor. Sounds like some of the postings on this topic are off subject.

I lived in Brockport for over 18 years and had to stomach the dishonesty of "Buddy's" father. Buddy has been riding on his father's coattails all of his life. Even in death his father is still taking up the slack for him! If Buddy is a lawyer how come he didn't know that is was against the LAW to not file your taxes? If he's a lawyer how come he doesn't have a financial advisor or accountant to keep his books in line? Someone needs to ask Buddy how many times it took him to pass the BAR. Check it out, you'll be surprised - he might have even broken a record on the number of times it took to pass the BAR!!!! I say throw the book at him - if he's guily.......
