Joseph T. Schiavone, Jr. trial to begin

Trial was set to begin Monday afternoon in the case of Joseph T. Schiavone, Jr. He is charged with theft and money laundering in real estate deals soon after our Consumer Watchdog stories aired.

Schiavone is accused of selling homes he didn’t have the right to sell.

Sheila Seidel said he took a deposit for a home, but the deal didn’t go through and she says she didn’t get her money back.

She says Schiavone did pay her back about $4,500 of the $24,000 she gave him for the home.

Our stories uncovered other consumers who also lost money. North Palm Beach Police estimate the losses at $100,000 for multiple victims.

We’ll continue to bring you updates as opening statements get underway.
