Great reporting from Meredith Hoffman at DNAinfo.com…

Some tidbits:

He pleaded not guilty before Justice Suzanne Mondo.

Thge judge told him he was no longer elgible for a legal aid lawyer and ordered him to hire a private attorney and return to court next week.

And in typical form:

When DNAinfo asked Loiacano about the charges, he burst into an incoherent rage before belting out an operatic aria and then presenting a deck of cards and offering to perform a magic trick.

Are you thinking about living here???

See this junkyard above? The owner has scammed quite a few people out of their deposits and rent. It started when some local bar owners tried to rent the space out then the Community Board rejected a liquor license for the location. Junkyard Joe decided he wasn’t going to pay back the $25,000 that he was legally bound to return based on the terms of the agreement. The court ruled against him to the tune of $27,000.

Flash forward to find a couple from the midwest who put down almost $4,000 in rent and security deposit only to have the “landlord” refuse them entry claiming because they didn’t have renters insurance they could not occupy the space. They also never got their money back.

Next victim, a tailor from Bushwick who rented the storefront only to find his sewing machines and other equipment unceremoniously dumped on the sidewalk less than a week after he moved in. That tailor lost about $3000 in the scam.

Most recently a girl rented the space, moved some of her belongings and a small kitten in. A few days later the kitten turned up crushed to death with Joe claiming a dog got in the building. She’s out around $3500 while Joe is trying to hold her to the lease. Her family also discovered all of the building violations and declared the junkyard a fire trap.

This flyer was recently circulated in the neighborhood by a disgruntled victim no doubt. A revised version of the flyer has alleged that he stole the house from his aunt. Property records indicate that the building was sold to Joe Loiacono for a mere $10 with the aunt retaining a life estate in the property, however she’s no longer in the neighborhood to get the real story.

Trouble down South - Frivolous Lawsuits

Joseph Loiacono

373 Graham Ave

For a guy in plenty of legal hot water himself it’s astonishing that he would waste the scant few resources he had on lawsuits quickly tossed out by the court or more hilariously ruled against him. Smarts, it appears, was never his strong suit.

For a guy who’s taken quite a bit of rent from people without actually giving them a store front or apartment it’s quite interesting that he both gets legal aid and can’t afford an attorney.

Someone’s got a temper. This must have been some divorce, not that he’s paying the ex-wife her owed alimony.

Even without a car or valid drivers license Joe seems to be having a hell of a time staying out of trouble up here in New York.

Looks like Joe got himself in some trouble with the traffic court down south and can’t be bothered to man up and deal with the court. A couple of failure to comply warrants have been issued and he hasn’t bothered to serve the time in jail that he owes to the state of South Carolina. When you see him driving around Brooklyn be sure to phone it in, that failure to comply means he’s also got himself a suspended license.
