Dina Manzo Home Invasion Elaborate Hoax Or Real???
According to the man who allegedly beat and robbed Dina Manzo during a home invasion in 2017, he is claiming her allegations are completely false! Read on…
CelebNReality247.com has the latest on the Dina Manzo Home Invasion that happened back in 2017.
Back in July, Dina Manzo robber James Mainello, 51, was indicted on first-degree robbery, second-degree burglary, second-degree aggravated assault, third-degree aggravated assault, third-degree theft, third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and third-degree criminal restraint, over the alleged home invasion.
Well, now his legal team is calling the incident an “elaborate scheme” set up by the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum.
AllAboutTheTEA spoke with James Mainello’s attorney, Marco Laracca who had this to say about the alleged 2017 home invasion in New Jersey, which he says is “questionable at best and maybe totally fabricated.”
Marco Laracca adds:
It is clear from our investigation and a review of all the discovery obtained so far that either the incident did not happen or certainly did not happen in the way the alleged victims claimed it did.
Police questioned neighbors in the townhouse complex who said they heard nothing unusual during the alleged break-in.
Marco Laracca, who noted that Cantin’s injuries were not consistent with someone beaten with a baseball bat by a grown man.
It’s hard to believe that during a violent attack involving a baseball that none of the townhouse neighbors heard anything — no screams, no broken glass, nothing.
Marco Laracca is seeking documentation:
He says docs will shed more light on what may actually be an elaborate scheme on the part of Dina Manzo and David Cantin to capitalize on Dina’s Real Housewives of New Jersey fame.
Mr. Laracca has subpoenaed a copy of Dina’s divorce records to help shed light on the case, because, among other things, Dina told police that the attack was orchestrated by her ex-husband, Thomas Manzo. Dina Manzo’s attorney has moved to quash the subpoena.
According to a statement Dina Manzo gave police, the attackers wore ski masks and threatened her and her fiance before leaving the townhouse, saying:
That’s what you get for f—ing with a guy from Paterson.
The reference, she alleges, is to the Manzo family, which has its business and personal roots in the city.
