    Ex-child actor who once played kid gangster busted in kickback scheme
    By Rebecca Rosenberg

    December 1, 2015 | 1:20pm

    A former child actor from Brooklyn who once played a kiddie gangster has been busted in a real-life kickback scheme that netted him half a million dollars, authorities said Tuesday.

    John Cassisi — who played baby-faced gangland boss “Fat Sam’’ in the 1976 flick “Bugsy Malone” starring Scott Baio and Jodie Foster — pulled off his illicit scheme while working in a top construction finance post at Citibank, sources said.

    Cassisi, 53, was director of global construction for Citibank realty services, meaning he was responsible for overseeing all of the bank’s construction projects globally and ultimately the awarding of lucrative contracts.

    Authorities say Cassisi accepted cash, lavish trips and free work on his home in East Northport, LI, in exchange for steering contracts to firms.

    The president of an electrical firm was caught giving him a $21,500 trip to Alaska as one payment.

    He was given two to six years behind bars on the money-laundering rap and another one to three years for the bribery. The sentences will run concurrently.

    The former actor was immediately taken into custody after the proceeding.

    He was a guest on The Mike Douglas Show in the late 1970's. I recall his appearance since he had a runny nose and wiped it with his suit sleeve. It was fucking gross, and I was a teenager at the time, who may have done something like that, but not on national TV and not while wearing a suit.

    "Former Child Actor" headlines rarely finish with "wins Nobel Prize" or "finds cure for cancer".

    Ex-Citigroup Construction Executive Admits Taking $500,000 in Bribes
    By JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr. DEC. 1, 2015

    The bribes were sometimes delivered as cash-stuffed envelopes to the Citigroup executive. Other times, contractors seeking business sent checks to a fake company that the executive ran from his house. One electrical company bought him a lavish hunting trip in Alaska. Another contractor built a patio and barbecue at the executive’s home.

    Manhattan prosecutors said the man at the center of the bribery scheme was John Cassisi, an electrician and former child actor who in early 2012 had risen to become the director of global construction for Citi Realty Services, the Citigroup unit that manages its offices and branches.

    The companies paid Mr. Cassisi more than $500,000 in bribes over three years in an effort to win contracts on a $1.6 billion project to renovate the corporation’s future headquarters at 388 Greenwich Street in TriBeCa, the Manhattan district attorney’s office said.

    Mr. Cassisi, 53, an avid hunter from the Long Island community of East Northport, was sentenced on Tuesday to two to six years in state prison after pleading guilty to money laundering and receiving commercial bribes. As part of a plea agreement, he also promised to forfeit $500,000.

    When investigators and the State Police executed search warrants at his home, they discovered dozens of big-game trophies on the walls, law enforcement officials said. There were 27 hunting rifles and 16 pistols in the house, along with $15,000 in cash, prosecutors said.

    The jackass was probably pulling in more than that per year in salary and bonus.

    He'll probably be out in a year. But still. He didn't need that money. Greedy.
