NY Pizza Maker Sentenced to Feed the Poor
October 20, 2010 01:09 PM
JUSTICE SERVED HOT, OR YOUR MONEY BACK
It's guys like Joseph Jacobbi who give NY pizza shop owners -- famous for their fair and courteous demeanor -- a bad name.
The 57-year-old owner of Casa-di-Pizza was recently put on trial for $104,000 he withheld from New York state taxes over the course of four years. Jacobbi plead guilty and was sentenced to not only pay the rest he owed to the state, he must also deliver pizzas to the poor.
Judge Russell Buscaglia delivered the ruling in New York's State Supreme Court. As stipulated in the verdict, Jacobbi must deliver 12 sheet pizzas to the Buffalo City Missions every Tuesday for the next year. Aubrey Calhoun of the local branch was delighted to hear the news.
"We were excited about the opportunity," she
NBC's WALB News. "We are trying to figure out is how would the judge come up with this type of ruling ... it's not a common ruling."
Judge Buscaglia did not divulge the reason behind her decision. However, Calhoun said it will be a huge help in covering much of the mission's 450-750 meals served each day.
"It cuts down on manpower," she said. "It cuts down on resources, and also it's a wonderful treat because not many people get served pizza."
And as an added bonus, the ruling took place in New York. Had this been Chicago, the verdict would've been deemed cruel and unusual.
