Master of disguise Vito "Skidmark" Scavo had a meeting in the men's underwear aisle at the Northlake Wal Mart with two bar owners to talk about keeping things quiet. It's a miracle he was ever caught!

Never said you were smart enough to realize it takes smarts to hide money successfully from the Feds. Vito's doggy yard's as 100% full of crap as his supporters.

Not necissarily true. If he gets more than 10 years he goes to a regular federal penitentery with bars. If your sentence is over 10 yrs. you cannot go to a camp. Once he gets his time in & gets down to 10 yrs. his lawyer can request a change to a camp but that can take awhile or the feds can deny the move. While on the subject, does anyone know why Scavo choose to go to trial & pis the feds off more? He would have gotten 18 months off if he pleaded guilty & had no trial. Seems like a dumb move to me.

Probably because the Fed had such an overwhelming case against him that they probably offered him nothing less than 10 years. I would assume that he figured why plead out to 10 or 15 years. Take his chances with a jury. There is still time to flip. He can make a deal to cooperate to reduce his sentence. Remember I believe the racketeering charge alone is a 20 year minimum mandatory sentence. I could be off a couple years.

There aint no innocent ones here. Everyone knew what they were doing. They were not evil or bad people. Just greedy. Typical melrose park.

Actually, they all didn't know what they were doing. What they thought they were doing is obeying an assignment. They all did not know he was getting paid from the places of assignment while the village paid them. There were always details given in the past before the PD had anything to do with any security company

that makes sense to me. However, why in the world would Ric Cervone & Jojette Laino lie to the Grand Jury? They had to know it was wrong & risky. They both got caught & jojette got immunity. Cervone was not as lucky. He's in big trouble.

Riiiight.
I get pulled from my patrol assignment and asked to work a bar while I am still on duty. I then look at my paycheck and it states 80 hours for 2 weeks. And I do not question it. Or better yet. i go and take the chief's car to Florida during a week I am supposed to be working . I get back a week later. Get my check and find that nothing has been deducted. I also have the same amount of time on the books. Riiiight I had no clue. Try again.

They work security at a bar and get paid cash. They don't claim the income on their taxes. They knew. Greed. The worst ones are the ones who reaped all the benefits of Scavo's favortism and when they get caught they can't take the heat and wear a wire or testify and get immunity.

I said not all of them. The assignments in the plaza and Lincoln tech and navistar that the part timers were assigned to. They went where they were sent. They did not know he was getting paid
