Nichols keeps Cascino in jail

Dec 26, 2017 8:00 am

Diane Walden is reporting in The Columbia Paper a last-minute pre-holiday attempt to get Salvatore Cascino [kah-SHEE-no] out of jail has failed. Cascino and all other involved parties appeared before Judge Jonathan Nichols in Columbia County Supreme Court December 14, in connection with ongoing contempt proceedings against the 78-year-old Westchester County resident. At the hearing, his current attorney, Greg Lubow, failed once again to convince Nichols that the material he ordered removed was removed. Nichols cut the proceedings short, sent Cascino back to jail and adjourned the case until January 10. Cascino has spent the past 19 years amassing violations of federal, state and town laws for illegal dumping, building and excavating at a place he calls Copake Valley Farm along the east side of Route 22. He has been locked up in the Columbia County Jail for nearly 500 consecutive days, after being found in contempt of court for failing to remove more than 9,600 cubic yards of illegally dumped solid waste from his property as ordered in February 2016. A variety of attorneys have tried, without success, to prove that Cascino has complied with that order. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
