THE CONVICTED FELONS BEHIND ST NICKS ALLIANCE
ST NICKS ALLIANCE HIDES EVIDENCE AND REFUSES TO COMPLY WITH COURT DEMANDS
Story By: James Edstrom
As most of my readers know, I have been fighting St Nicks Alliance for abusing my son and I when we lived in their building in Williamsburg, 19 Maujer Street. For those of you who do not know the story, St Nicks Alliance is run by convicted felons who live off city contracts. They are paid to give affordable housing to people with AIDS. They are paid to provide services which they do not provide, yet the city of New York refuses to take away the contracts.
St Nicks Alliance gets Senior contracts, AIDS Contracts, Youth Contracts and the list goes on and on. Joseph Robles the President of St Nicks Alliance also owns Knights Collision Experts, which also lives off the back of city taxpayers with many city contracts. He is a convicted felon!
CONVICTED FELONS JOSEPH ROBLES SR. AND JOSEPH ROBLES JR.
FROM THE NY POST: Brooklyn-based Knights Collision Experts – which already holds exclusive city towing rights for the FDR and Harlem River Drive – was poised to take over million-dollar permits for Staten Island highways and the Grand Central Parkway in Queens, effective today.
But in a hearing Friday in Staten Island Supreme Court, Justice Philip Minardo froze the award upon learning that the company’s owners, Joseph Robles and his son, also named Joseph, were convicted of federal fraud charges in 1991 and that the younger Robles was arrested again in 2006 on a similar charge. Read the whole story from several links highlighted above.
ANOTHER NY POST STORY: De Blasio’s questionable school consultants cost taxpayers millions
Findings included the fraud conviction of Joseph Robles Jr., who chairs the board of St. Nicks Alliance of Brooklyn and was hit with five years’ probation and a $10,000 fine for a 1991 insurance scam tied to his family-owned business, Knights Collision Expert Repairs.
Robles “was arrested again in 2000 and 2006 on similar charges”.
The story did not mention that his father Joseph Robles Sr. who used to run St Nicks Alliance was also convicted and served time in jail.
ST NICKS ALLIANCE PROPERTY MANAGER HAYDEE CORDERO ARRESTED FOR MONEY LAUNDERING FOR HEROIN DRUG RING
NY TIMES: 25 Charged in Heroin Trafficking Ring in Brooklyn.
Haydee Cordero, 46, offered “significant assistance,” Mr. Thompson said, including laundering money by depositing the proceeds from the drug sales into her bank account. The lawyer for Ms. Cordero, Calvin Simons, declined to comment.
Click the link above to read the Times Story. But in e mails From me to St Nicks Alliance Michael Rochford, Joseph Robles and Frank Lang, I complained about the drug operations in the building I lived in and the other building they owned across the street. The result was calling me into the city for a eviction, upgrading the harassment from St Nicks Alliance employees and tenants at 19 Maujer Street.
ST NICK ALLIANCE HIDES EVIDENCE
There is a time limit for turning over e mails and videos as well as all evidence. St Nicks Alliance has ignored all time limits. When we go back to court for compliance hearings, they agree to turn over the documents and then we never get them. They go back with another excuse, they get more time and we still never get anything.
FELONS ST NICKS ALLIANCE HIRES BIGGEST LAW FIRM GORDON REES SCULLY MANSUKHANI TO DEFEND THEIR FRAUD
Misty Marris from this law firm knows how to play the courts. She comes to court, promises to provide witnesses that she knows does not even work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, then comes back and says she can not provide them, they do not work for them anymore. This happened with Ivette Alerte. She knew Miss Alerte did not work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, depositions taken before the promise from her clients showed she knew Miss Alerte did not work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, they testified to this. Yet she promised the court she would provide her and the court gives them more time, and wham, we get no deposition and she cries to the court that she was unable to get Miss Alerte as she was no longer employed by St Nicks Alliance. She knew this and once again the court let her get away with this. Dozens of e mails ignored asking over the months about depositions, e mails not turned over, videos not turned over, security books and more. It's is now almost 4 years and they refuse to turn over the evidence.
Miss Marris then promises another witness from St Nicks Alliance. The court gives her more time. Miss Marris ignores my lawyers e mails and phone calls trying to set a date. Months and months go by and now time is almost over till our next compliance hearing. Still no e mails, no videos, no security books turned over as required by law. And no depositions as required by the court agreement.
Misty Marris & St Nicks Alliance claimed the security company, Guardian is the only one who has access to the security books and the video cameras. Guardian ignored many subpoenas. Finally they show up. They give us a security book that was not even the years we lived there, and they say the only one who has access to security footage is St Nicks Alliance. They said what St Nicks Alliance was saying about not having access to footage was a lie. When I lived there St Nicks Alliance put in a high end security system, that could only be accessed online at a secure website. They refuse to give us passwords and access to pull out the videos of all the tenants harassing us day and night. We have been fighting for this for almost 4 years now. The videos will show the drug dealing in the building, the harassment through our windows and St Nicks knows this. St Nicks Alliance's Frank Lang also is guilty of perjury, he said at depositions that he had no access to the security cameras. Are you kidding me Frank Lang? You are one of the bosses and you can not access your own cameras? I have a e mail exchange between you and Michael Rochford talking about the cameras. For 4 years you lied to the court saying only your security company had access, now they tell us it's only you. Turn over the evidence Mr Lang!

This must mean Miss Cordero sold out her partners in crime. I have been told she has been back and forth to Puerto Rico. This would mean she is in witness protection or some kind of deal was made. You do not let someone who is charged with money laundering for a Heroin Cartel permission to travel unless she was providing information to arrest other people. How many people died from this drug operation and she is getting 3 years probation? This woman was told in e mails from me about drugs in the building as were her bosses at St Nicks Alliance. They ignored. Now we know why!

They are required to provide this information. They have not. Now 3 months. Well past the time limit. They refuse to comply with just about everything, yet these felons keep getting city one city contract after another.
OUR DEMANDS WERE CLEAR FROM THE START OF THE CASE
Turn over all videos: They refuse
Turn over all security books: They refuse
Turn over e mails between Brooklyn President Marty Moskowitz and Michael Rochford: They refuse
Give Us Michael Rochford and Joseph Robles for deposition: They refuse. (Hiding something?)
We asked them for copies of my deposition several times. They ignored. We finally had to contact the court reporter to get them.
Almost every e mail and phone call from my lawyer is ignored by Gordon Rees.
CASE HAS COST OVER 130 THOUSAND DOLLARS
I am in the hole for around 130 thousand dollars. This is from them not complying with just about anything. This is for not showing up for depositions, this is for motion after motion, this is the cost of Gordon Rees playing games with the court. It is not fair. Most of my expenses are from their games. Frank Lang testified their lawyers expenses were partially covered by their insurance. We are sure at least some of their defense is coming out of taxpayer monies from one of their huge contracts.
It is not fair that justice has to be like this. The big company with the big checkbook should not be able to manipulate the courts with a big law firm like Gordon Rees. All I want is my day in court. It will cost, it will take time, but after pushing me so far when all I ever wanted was St Nicks Alliance to do the right thing, we will see them at trial. The media and the city will see what this company really is. And the city will keep giving them contracts till I prove my case in court. How can this city give convicted felons millions of dollars in contracts? We will find out!
