Florida Accountant Sentenced to Federal Prison for Two Fraud Schemes

Joseph Rizzuti, of Stuart, Fla., was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and for corruptly endeavoring to obstruct the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Justice Department and the IRS announced today.

According to court documents, Rizzuti, an accountant and the owner of Beacon Accounting Services in Palm City, Fla., interfered with the IRS’s ability to collect taxes owed by two clients by stealing payments from those clients intended for the IRS and making misrepresentations to the clients, as well as the IRS, to conceal his scheme. Rizzuti also admitted to engaging in a criminal conspiracy to commit wire fraud by making material misrepresentations to individuals throughout the United States who believed the money they were investing with Rizzuti and his co-conspirators was funding Nigerian-related oil and Bahamian construction projects, but instead Rizzuti and his co-conspirators used the investors’ money for their own personal expenses. In total, Rizzuti and his co-conspirators stole approximately $3 million.

In addition to prison time, U.S. District Judge Donald L. Graham sentenced Rizzuti to serve three years of supervised release and to pay $298,000 in restitution to victims of his schemes to the IRS. Additional penalties will be assessed in the next 90 days.

This case was investigated by special agents of IRS – Criminal Investigation and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. Trial Attorneys Justin Gelfand and Rebecca Perlmutter of the Justice Department’s Tax Division prosecuted the case.

PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – May 30, 2013 (WPVI) — A woman returning from Jamaica took an unexpected detour through customs at Philadelphia International Airport.

Authorities say 25-year-old Iveliza Tuhanna Perez, of Camden, New Jersey, was sent through a routine secondary examination line by Customs and Border Patrol officials on Wednesday. There, agents found three pairs of cork wedge shoes that seemed inappropriately heavy.

X-ray exams found abnomalies in all six shoes and officers found a white, powdery substance when they probed one shoe.

The substance field tested as cocaine and Perez was then turned over to Philadelphia Police Department officers.

The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting Perez on charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute and Knowing and Intentional Possession.

In total, according to U.S. Customs officials, Perez’s shoes contained 4 pounds, 7 ounces of cocaine with a street value of roughly $140,000.

Girl’s body found naked in front of church

BY KARYL WALKER Editor – Crime/Court Desk [email protected]

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

RESIDENTS of 89 Maxfield Avenue were in shock yesterday morning as they woke up to find the body of a naked teenaged girl at the gates of the St Phillips Anglican Church.

The body was not identified up to press time yesterday but a police officer on the scene told the Jamaica Observer that the deceased appeared to be between the ages of 16 and 19.

Onlookers point to a knife blade at the spot where the mutilated body of a female was found yesterday.

“She appears to be an adolescent,” said the policeman from the St Andrew South Police Division who secured the crime scene.

A report from the Constabulary Communication Network said the body was of brown complexion, slim build, about 163 centimetres (5 feet 4 inches) long with braided extensions.

Police said the body had several stab wounds in the neck and abdomen. A bloodied underwear was found several feet from where the body lay in a pool of blood and the brassiere was cut off her body.

The young woman’s unclad body was near the entrance to the Norman Manley High School and due to police yellow tape some students of the institution were inconvenienced as they were prevented from entering school as officers tried to preserve the crime scene.

Staff at Norman Manley High, Glenhope Place of Safety and the Maxfield Park Children’s Home — all located at that section of Maxfield Avenue which is close to the communities of Frog City and McDonald Lane — were given a chance to view the corpse in a bid to ascertain the victim’s identity. However, none of the persons who viewed the body were able to identify her.

“It seems she was not from around here either as none of the residents who saw her could identify her. No one seems to know her,” a policeman said.

One man who resides at the nearby Ethiopian Orthodox Church complained that thieves were plaguing persons who traversed the road on foot and said a woman was robbed of her cellular phone and slashed several times as she made her way to work one morning about 8:00 am.

“This road is very dangerous as they rob people very regularly even in the day. We have reported this to the police and asked them to patrol the road regularly. It gets worse at night as the road is pitch dark. The thieves use the football field as their escape route,” he said, suggesting that those robbers could be responsible for the young woman’s demise.

A woman who had gathered behind the yellow tape said it was possible that the young woman was raped and killed at the spot where her body was found. “It coulda happen right there as when night come not many people walk around there,” she said.

After the police handed over the body to funeral home workers and the curious crowd converged on the spot where the woman’s body lay, a knife blade was seen at the blood-soaked earth by the residents who showed iti to the police.

The blade was retrieved and taken into evidence.

The police said vaginal swabs will be conducted on the body to find out if the female was sexually abused.
