Trenton gunman arrested on weapons offenses, drug charges: Sept. 30, 2017 Police Blotter



The following items are based on information from police, unless otherwise noted:

TRENTON

Weapons and Drug Arrest: Rashaan Harris, 27, of Trenton, was arrested Friday night on weapons and drug offenses after police found him in alleged possession of a loaded pistol and marijuana. Trenton Police Street Crime Unit detectives conducted a motor vehicle stop about 11 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of Stuyvesant Avenue and smelled a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. The officers removed the driver from the vehicle and found him in alleged possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana. The driver, identified as Harris, was charged unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of marijuana.

Drug Arrest: Calvin Dodson, 29, of Hamilton, was arrested Friday morning for being in alleged possession of drugs. Trenton Police conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of Walnut and Olden avenues about 8 a.m. Friday for a vehicle violation. The driver, later identified as Dodson, was found to have multiple active warrants and to be in alleged possession of heroin and marijuana. He was charged with multiple drug-related offenses.

MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP

Corrupt Businessman Busted: Ronald Graban, 58, of the Columbus section of Mansfield in Burlington County, was sentenced Friday to 12 months in federal prison for buying counterfeit computer components from a factory in China and reselling those parts in the United States as if they were genuine, top-brand products. Graban previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Noel L. Hillman to an information charging him with mail fraud and money laundering. In addition to the prison term, Judge Hillman in Camden federal court also sentenced Graban to one year of supervised release, fined him $60,000 and ordered him to pay restitution of $927,193. Beginning in 2000, Graban was in the business of buying and reselling computer parts. He operated his business using various entities that he had set up, including, RPR International LLC, Graham Enterprises International, Innovative Technology Group, MT Loveland Corp., Golden Eagle Property Management, Andy Lee Inc. and Andy Lee Electronics. Graban would buy computer parts from a China-based company known as GigaLight/Eflow, and he would resell those parts to an internet retailer, marketing those items as genuine Cisco and Nortel parts when they were actually counterfeit imitations. In early 2006, Graban became aware that GigaLight/Eflow was selling counterfeit computer parts to his companies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized several shipments of computer parts from GigaLight/Eflow and notified the companies of the seizures and of the fact that the parts seized were counterfeit. Despite being on notice that the computer parts he had been buying were counterfeit, Graban continued to buy those parts and resell them to the internet retailer. In February 2006, Graban caused the internet retailer to mail him a check, payable to one of Graban’s companies, for $163,000 in payment for counterfeit parts he sold to the retailer. He deposited that check into the bank account of another one of his companies. Federal authorities soon learned of his corrupt business practices. In August 2007, approximately $890,000 was seized from various bank accounts that Graban maintained in the name of his companies. Two properties that Graban bought in Florida through his criminal proceeds were seized but later went into foreclosure. Graban agreed to forfeit the funds seized and the proceeds from the two foreclosure sales, about $40,000. Graban pleaded guilty back in August 2012. A press release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey did not say why it took five years for Graban to be sentenced.

PLAINSBORO

False ID Arrest: Jose Luis Rodas De Leon, 36, of Hamilton, was arrested Tuesday on allegations he provided police with false ID subsequent to a motor vehicle stop. About 9:50 p.m. Tuesday on Route 1 South, a Plainsboro patrol officer stopped a black 2005 Toyota RAV4 for maintenance of lamps and unclear license plates. The driver, identified as Rodas De Leon, was allegedly driving without a license and provided a false New Jersey identification card. Rodas De Leon was arrested, cited with several tickets for alleged motor vehicle violations and released from custody pending mandatory court dates.

A Healthy Dialogue, Except on Rezoning, at East Harlem Town Hall …

Abigail Savitch-Lew

The mayor speaks to constituents at an East Harlem town hall on Thursday September 28.

 

Residents of Spanish Harlem have a lot concerning them these days, from the disaster in Puerto Rico to Trump’s rescinding of DACA—to the potential impacts of the city’s proposed neighborhood rezoning. At a town hall on Thursday night, residents showed adamant opposition to the proposed rezoning, which the City Planning Commission is expected to vote on this Monday, but the mayor took issue with their concerns.

Beyond discussion of the rezoning, however, there was overall a deal of respect expressed for Mayor De Blasio at the town hall, and a good deal of gratitude for the accomplishments of three-term local councilmember and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who has only a few months left on the job.

De Blasio took time at the beginning of the meeting to praise Mark-Viverito, saying the city would look back at her time in City Council as a “golden age” and heralding her work on tenant protections, affordable housing, criminal justice and safety, as well as her recent advocacy for Puerto Rico. The federal government’s lack of action to serve the island he described as “truly an atrocity” and he urged constituents to learn about how they could help.

Before opening the floor, de Blasio noted a number of small improvements he said were being undertaken immediately. New lights had been installed that day on the intersection of 125th Street and Park Avenue; improvements were being made to local small parks; the sidewalks of Johnson Houses would be fixed by the end of the year, and there would be new litter collections on key streets.

Constituents brought up a wide variety of problems—not enough licenses for street venders, a police officer perceived to have a disrespectful tone, a landlord’s illegal renovation work without a permit, for instance—and the mayor and his commissioners tried to deliver answers or a promise to follow-up.

Here are five of the most common issues raised by constituents:

NYCHA concerns

The town hall took place in Johnson Houses’ community center and drew a large number of NYCHA residents from the surrounding area. East Harlem has the highest concentration of NYCHA developments in the city, with nearly 30 percent of residents living in NYCHA, according to the East Harlem Neighborhood Plan.

Tenant leader Ethel Velez, noting the amount of money the mayor had dedicated to his affordable housing, asked for more money to preserve NYCHA’s dilapidated building stock. Others brought specific requests or concerns: Wagner Houses needs a bigger senior center. Polo Grounds is infested with raccoons and suffers from leaks and potholes. A neighbor is breaking NYCHA’s rule against the ownership of pitbulls. Others were concerned about rent increases and the rumored “privatization” of NYCHA.

Some residents were also reeling from a recent, unresolved death just one street away at Jefferson Houses. As reported by The Daily News, on August 19, 33-year-old Yanina Boitel, a mother of three and grandmother, was found dead after falling off the roof of her building. One Jefferson resident brought up concerns about safety and building cameras; later, a woman who appeared to be a close relative of Boitel said in near-tears that she didn’t believe it was a suicide. An NYPD official couldn’t speak to the details due to an ongoing investigation, but said that thanks to a heavy cop presence at Jefferson and Johnson Houses, shootings were down 50 percent for the year. The De Blasio team mentioned resources coming for new cameras.

As for the other concerns, De Blasio said that given the absence of sufficient federal funding, he’d put an unprecedented amount of city money into NYCHA repairs, including $1.3 billion in capital funds in just one year, and said the city would continue to, in each year, take more responsibility. He justified his commitment to creating new affordable housing, but promised that NYCHA “will never be privatized, I want to be 100 percent clear.”

He and NYCHA chair Shola Olatoye emphasized that when private entities like Goldman Sachs become investment partners in a NYCHA building—as in cases where the city is moving NYCHA buildings to the Rental Assistance Demonstration program—NYCHA still retains ownership of the land and control of important decisions. As for the rent increases, Olatoye says they were mandated by the federal government and in no case should make a resident pay more than 30 percent of their income.

They also made some commitments: to explore the location of a new senior center for Wagner Houses, to reexamine the regulations governing the removal of illegal pets, and—since residents were asking for it—to provide more stringent enforcement of trash rules through increased ticketing.

The rezoning

A group of Movement for Justice in El Barrio members protested the proposed rezoning outside the community center, and within the town hall there were a couple speeches condemning it—followed by resounding applause and chants. One resident said the market-rate housing brought by a rezoning would exacerbate displacement and accused De Blasio of catering to developers’ interests.

“You might disagree with me on the vision but don’t look for a motive that isn’t there,” said De Blasio, arguing that the plan would bring new, permanent affordable housing and was a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring new investments to East Harlem. “I’m convinced that the market-rate housing is not going to change the trajectory of all neighborhoods.” He said NYCHA and rent-stabilized housing would remain protected—though many advocates are concerned the administration is underestimating the risks to rent-stabilized housing. Mark-Viverito spoke to the importance of a balance, and said she would work for the priorities of the neighborhood plan.

When another resident from the Justice Center in El Barrio said that none of the mandated new housing would be truly affordable to the lowest incomes and condemned the mayor for selling land to private developers, De Blasio dismissed her concerns and wouldn’t go further into it. According to The Post , a nearby resident shouted “Bull shit!”, Mark-Viverito defended the mayor, and soon after security guards escorted a group of residents out as they chanted “no rezoning.”

Trouble in the schools

Showing his deep concern about the recent stabbing death of a student in a Bronx high school, De Blasio began the evening with a moment of silence for 15-year-old Matthew McCree. The Times has reported that the student charged with murder may have reacted in response to bullying. Several residents called for deeper interventions to stem violence and provide more city services for youth.

In addition, a charter school student asked whether de Blasio would support lifting the cap on charter schools, and a parent complained of lack of space in a building with three co-located schools.

De Blasio pointed to the administration’s growing investment in the CureViolence model, which seeks to reduce violence through peer-to-peer conflict resolution, his investments in school counseling, the city’s new mental illness program Thrive NYC, and in creating an after-school seat for every middle schooler who wants one. He promised to continue improving public schools but said he didn’t think the cap on charters should be removed.

New and old worries at HDFCs

Housing Development Fund Corporations (HDFCs), or low-income cooperatives, provide some of the city’s most affordable homeownership opportunities, but some HDFCs face problems, including worsening building conditions, financial mismanagement, or increasingly loss of affordability.

A couple speakers raised concerns with the city’s potential foreclosure of 84 HDFCs and plan to transfer the HDFCs, which are in debt to the city, to third-party owners that will stabilize and rehabilitate the buildings and make the shareholders tenants. De Blasio’s team, while justifying the measure, said that buildings willing to get on a payment plan and avoid foreclosure could come see the Commissioner of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) immediately.

A plan for homelessness

At least two residents raised concerns about the homelessness crisis, with one saying that hundreds of people were leaving the shelter on Randall and Ward’s Island and entering East Harlem because they had nowhere else to go, while many patients of the methadone clinics on 125th Street were hanging out on the street. A member of Picture the Homeless asked for, and still couldn’t get, a position from the mayor on the Housing Not Warehousing Act.

De Blasio’s Human Resources Commissioner Steven Banks announced that the administration had stopped requiring homeless people to leave their shelters during the day and now were encouraging residents to take part in employment programs at their shelter. De Blasio acknowledged the crisis but also defended his approach to homelessness, pointing to his investments in eviction-prevention, a rent freeze, and in rental assistance to move families out of homeless shelters, among other efforts.

Newbery’s firm focuses on social impact investments, utilizing Regulation Crowdfunding under Title IV of the JOBS Act to purchase distressed mortgages at deep discounts; it then shares these discounts with homeowners to avoid foreclosure.  Newbery will appear on a panel entitled “Alternative Investment Innovation” and plans to educate the mostly-European audience about foreclosure solutions for America’s “most vulnerable communities.”

“AHP is streamlining our process for non-U.S. investors,” Newbery said, explaining that they are now able to invest as quickly and easily as their U.S. counterparts.  ”The TBLI conference is an opportunity to further expand our mission outside America, and show the world that there is money to be made as well as social benefits to be realized from helping homeowners avoid foreclosure.”

Newbery is one of only three American CEOs present at the conference this year.  He sees his appearance as representing the American impact investing community, and gave praise to the TBLI conference and its founder, Robert Rubinstein.

“The TBLI Conference has been a leader in driving discussion around impact investing for two decades,” said Newbery.  ”I’m glad that AHP can be a part of it.”

Newbery’s panel will take place Friday, September 29th at 9:15 AM at NASDAQ.  A full schedule can be found here.

Federal funds available for homeowners facing foreclosure say county treasurers

About $40 million dollars are available for Michigan homeowners who are facing troubles with their mortgage payments or property taxes, said Mary Tomley, Director of the Homeownership Division of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

As part of a conference organized at the Ingham County Veterans Memorial Courthouse, treasurers of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties along with representatives from MSHDA said the federally funded Step Forward Michigan program can provide no-interest loans to homeowners.

Since the federal government allocated $760 million dollars in 2010, a total of 1,639 homeowners have benefitted from this program in just the three counties, according to the Michigan Homeowner Assistance Nonprofit Housing Corporation, which overseas this program in collaboration with MSHDA.

Unexpected hardships like a death in the family, divorce, large medical bills, layoffs, home repairs can make homeowners eligible for applying to this program, where they can get interest free loans up to $30,000, said Earl Poleski, MSHDA Executive Director.

“Even better, if you stay in your home for the next five years, the loan is forgiven and you don’t have to pay it back,” Poleski said.

“This program has helped Clinton County residents remain in their homes during times of hardship,” said Tina Ward, Clinton County Treasurer. “Loan payments are made directly to the county treasurer’s office, the mortgage lender or the condominium association.”

“If residents can’t pay back their debts, the threat of foreclosure becomes all too real, which affects property values throughout the county,” said Robert Robinson, Eaton County Treasurer.

He encouraged potential applicants to find out about the program by going to the website and answering a few questions that can determine their eligibility.

Urging homeowners facing foreclosure to use the program, Ingham County Treasurer Eric Schertzing said he wants to get the “phone lines ringing.”

“Which can start a conversation about the program with homeowners about their individual situations,” Schertzing said. “We also have one-on-one counseling sessions, along with other resources to help them.”

State Senator for the 23rd district in Michigan, Curtis Hertel Jr. was also part of the news conference. Herecalled his days as the Ingham County register of deeds in the middle of the largest foreclosure crisis in Michigan’s history.

“I know the pain caused by a foreclosure and losing a home, so for me to promote this program to my constituents is incredibly important,” he said.

All three treasurers along with MSHDA and the senator mentioned having a vested interest to prevent every foreclosure by spreading the word about this program and utilizing the $40 million dollars before the deadline in 2020.

“There are folks who have difficulties, they kind of freeze up and do not know what to do in such situations, a simple phone call can solve all their problems through this great program,” reiterated Poleski. “All of us want to get the word out and help every eligible homeowner.”

Lessons from past storms should guide mortgage industry in post-storm recovery

Homeowners in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico have returned to their homes and have begun to assess the damage caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. As mortgage servicers begin to address the concerns of these homeowners, they should pay heed to lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy, which damaged or destroyed more than 650,000 homes in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut five years ago.

The total estimated $71.4 billion cost of Sandy included not only repairs to homes but also significant repairs to public infrastructure and projects designed to prevent future storm damage.  Moody’s Analytics estimates that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused between $75 and $95 billion in residential property damage alone and there are an estimated 4.3 million mortgage-encumbered homes in the Harvey and Irma-related FEMA disaster area counties. The impact of the 2017 hurricane season is thus likely to rival, if not dwarf, that of Sandy. Lenders and servicers can prepare by considering the immediate, short term and longer term impact of prior hurricanes, such as Superstorm Sandy, on their business.

Immediate impact

Mortgage servicers are already fielding a heavy flow of customer inquiries about missed or delayed payments and waiving late fees. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, many loan servicers adopted forbearance programs that waived fees for late payments, and permitted homeowners to skip or make partial payments for a period of time without triggering delinquency reports to credit reporting agencies.

In addition, homeowners will have inquiries about damaged homes, repairs and insurance claims. Mortgage contracts and the National Flood Insurance Program require that insurance payments be made payable jointly to the homeowner and mortgage companies that hold a secured interest on damaged properties. As a result, homeowners must work with their mortgage servicer and originator to ensure any insurance proceeds are released on a schedule that can facilitate repairs and/or rebuilding where financially feasible.

As a result of the increase in customer communication, servicers will need to increase staffing in call centers and correspondence groups and train employees to respond to inquiries stemming from the hurricanes. Conversely, fewer resources will be needed for loan originations, as applications for new loans will decrease in hurricane-affected regions.

Short-term impact

As with Sandy, in response to Harvey, Irma and Maria, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a 90 day moratorium of foreclosure on “affected borrowers” including, but not limited to, those that live within Presidentially-declared disaster areas. In addition, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced 90 day moratoriums on foreclosure sales and evictions. Other lenders may adopt similar foreclosure moratoriums that extend to mortgages that are not federally-insured and servicers must work to communicate these polices to borrowers.

Despite foreclosure moratoriums that delay new foreclosure proceedings and foreclosures on loans in default prior to the storms, an increase in defaults and foreclosures in the coming months is likely. Due to the devastating impact of the storms, numerous properties have been destroyed beyond repair. Some customers may decide to give up their home and stop making mortgage loan payments altogether.

Black Knight Financial Services has predicted that the mortgage industry could see up to 300,000 new delinquencies as a result of Hurricane Harvey alone. Extended forbearance programs and foreclosure moratoriums are designed to allow homeowners time to recover from financial distress. Longer-term effects are thus expected and defaults and increased foreclosure activity may last for years.

In addition, as initial forbearance periods granted to borrowers impacted by Harvey, Irma and Maria expire, servicers will need to evaluate loans that are not current by the end of forbearance periods for workout options. These could include an extended forbearance period, a repayment plan, or other loss mitigation options.

Long-term impact

Servicers should expect that the HUD-announced 90 day moratorium on foreclosures on FHA-insured home mortgages may be extended. Following Sandy, that initial 90 day moratorium was subsequently extended for an additional 90 days. Six months after Sandy, the FHA also made an additional year of forbearance relief available to an estimated 285,922 qualified borrowers.

State legislators may also pass foreclosure relief measures. Thus, servicers must prepare to comply with FHA programs as well as any new state laws. It is important to note that hurricane-relief laws may be passed years after the storms.  Almost five years after Superstorm Sandy, on February 10, 2017, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed into law the Superstorm Sandy Recovery Act which provides homeowners whose primary residence was damaged by Hurricane Sandy an opportunity to seek foreclosure relief and creates a forbearance period that extends to July 1, 2019.

Finally, there will be litigation. After Sandy, numerous homeowners sued their mortgage companies alleging that they improperly withheld insurance proceeds preventing them from making repairs and in some cases alleging personal injuries arising from exposure to mold. Other suits brought by homeowners alleged mortgage companies violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act or incorrectly advised homeowners that they did not need flood insurance. Following Sandy, lenders and servicers were also pulled into homeowner litigation with insurers, contractors, and even neighbors who alleged damage to one property was caused by a defect on a neighboring hurricane-damaged property.

Mortgage lenders and servicers should anticipate managing similar litigation amidst increased foreclosure litigation and the volume will be significant.  In response to the influx of suits after Sandy, the Eastern District of New York set up a Superstorm Sandy docket in an effort to efficiently resolve insurance disputes relating to the storm. As of June 5, 2014 more than 1,000 cases were pending.  In New Jersey, a Superstorm Sandy Flood Litigation Committee, comprised of eight federal judges, created case management guidelines to streamline the adjudication of over 2,000 pending suits.  Despite these procedures to streamline litigation, cases arising from Superstorm Sandy are still being litigated in the courts even today.

The effects of the hurricanes will be felt by the mortgage loan industry right away – but the impact will continue for years. Servicers can learn from the past and be prepared.
