The wife of mobster Nicodemo S. Scarfo will not be going to jail.
Today, a federal judge sentenced Lisa Scarfo, 36, who pleaded to a charge of mortgage fraud in connection with her husband's multimillion dollar scam of a Texas company, to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service, reports George Anastasia on the bigtrial.net.
The judge was conciliatory in his sentence, Anastasia reported:
"Mrs. Scarfo, good luck. I hope you get your life back together," U.S. District Court Judge Robert Kugler said after imposing the sentence during a 10-minute hearing in federal court in Camden.
Kugler cited her "limited role" in the scam orchestrated by her husband, mobster Nicodemo S. Scarfo. But the judge added that he did not doubt that she knew what she was doing when she filed false statements in a mortgage application in 2008 that allow the couple to purchase a $715,000 home in Egg Harbor Township outside of Atlantic City.
Under sentencing guidelines, Lisa Scarfo faced a maximum prison sentence of six months, according to the judge.
