DiFiore_Janet LOPEZ-LORRAINEWHITE PLAINS, NY — June 26, 2012 — Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced that Lorraine Lopez (DOB 10/19/66) 202 Hayward Street, Yonkers, New York pled guilty today to the top count of the indictment that charged her with:

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a class “D” Felony,

in connection with the November 22nd 2011 charity Turkey Drive run by the City of Yonkers.

Between November 7th, 2011 and January 17th, 2012, the defendant, who at the time of the larceny had come out of retirement as a Special Assistant to then Mayor Philip Amicone, to take on the task of running the City’s annual charity Turkey Drive.  

The Turkey Drive is an annual charity event conducted under the auspices of the City of Yonkers, and donations are solicited to pay for the purchase of Turkeys and various other dinner trimmings.

The major contributors to the 2011 drive were the management and employees of Yonkers Contracting Corporation Inc., a construction and engineering firm located in the City of Yonkers.

The defendant received approximately $5,600 in donations from Yonkers Contracting for the express purpose of purchasing ingredients for Thanksgiving dinners that in turn would be given to various charities.

The defendant cashed the donation checks that were received through the Yonkers Parking Violations Bureau.

The larceny came to light when Yonkers Contracting contacted City Hall after January 1st, 2012 asking about the success of the Drive.

When no record of any purchases or disbursements could be located, the Office of Inspector General was contacted and an investigation was initiated.

The defendant was arrested by the Yonkers Police.

Sentencing will be on September 18th, 2012.

Restitution in the amount of $5,628 was paid in full at the time of the guilty plea. 

The defendant faces a maximum of seven years in state prison.

 Assistant District Attorney Brian Conway, Deputy Chief of the Public Integrity Bureau, is prosecuting the case.

  1. I saw her at DMV and She scared the crap out of me. She looked like a Ghost, An Ugly Ghost… What a piece of trash…

  2. it looks like the monster will get her before her 5 years probation is up – oh well, thats what happens when you are a gang ho for most of your life

  3. there would not have been a plea unless the judge made
    on the record a sentencing committment…that is an
    indication of his intent barring some unforseen information appearing in her probation report…I however agree that stealing from the poor requires at
    least some jail time…although this crime as scurvy
    as it was pales in comparison to what a criminal court
    judge has to deal with on a daily basis..so given no
    previous record and no violence to anyone and complete
    restitution..we will see….

  4. Prediction on Sept 18th 2010 the sentence will be 5 yrs probation with no jail time since restitution has been made which is unfortunate as she should be taught a lesson with jail time.

  5. Oh yes….your point is just so relevant to this article concerning the egregious acts committed by this republican amiconne lap dog that sucked 140k a year from the public tit for a decade AND stole from the poor. And, assuming that you are correct, which you are not, who would want to steal this POS’s identity? It’s not like they would able to use it to apply for a loan or credit card. I mean dude, I doubt a crack dealer would extent a $5 piece to this woman on credit.
    Oh…how do you know hezzi wasn’t the person who included the date? You must be phil gille trying to stir the empty “DiFiore is a criminal” pot again. Why don’t you go suck your astorino’s balls and call it a day? That is, if you can find them. Have a nice day.

  6. Why is it important for Madam DA to include the DOB of persons convicted? Doesnt that give mire opportutnity for id theft, something she is committed to fight?

  7. Just when I thought there was no lower level of political scum than Larry Schwartz, here it is and I hope there is no sympathy from the judge inspite of her self imposed medical illness. May she rot in hell!!!!

  8. This is probably the lowest form of scum to crawl out of some womans ass. And this was Amicones hand picked “personal” representative. I heard her and Marty Peterson used to get it on. Maybe that’s where she got the aids. This would be enjoyable except it’s like watching shit float down the river. Lots of shit, her and her entire family.
