Illegal alien extorted landlord

From the Real Deal:

Two would-be Greenwich Village restaurateurs were sentenced to up to 15 years in prison yesterday for a violent scheme to intimate their landlord into forgiving their rent payments. The two men, Ekkehart Schwarz, 71, and Vassilei Giamagas, 36, were convicted of pressuring the manager of their building to forgive $267,000 in back rent on a lounge called Restaulounge-bar De’Vill, which they had planned to open in 2008 at 68 West Third Street. They were said to have threatened him with a fake gun and sodomy, hired a thug to force him to hand over $25,000, and to have stalked him by hiding a GPS in his car. Giamagas is an illegal Greek immigrant and faces deportation and a minimum of 11 years in prison. Schwarz is a German architect who also faces deportation and a minimum of eight years. Schwarz is a former Department of Transportation employee.

From the Daily News:

The duo's henchman, Kakhaber Gogoladze (pictured), 38, is expected to be sentenced next week. All three men face deportation.

Deportation?!?!?!? They'll be back in less than 6 months and will commit more crimes.

How was the guy working for the DOT if he is an illegal alien?

The German guy worked for DOT. I don't think he was an illegal. Just the Greek guy.

Gogoladze is from Georgia. He is Caucasian.

But it doesn't say he is an illegal.

Any illegal, no matter what race, should be sent back home.

That's a switch, usually it's the landlord tormenting and extorting the tenant. Oh well, trash rises to the top whether tenant or landlord and I wish both would rise to the top of a gallows and then fall quickly.
