Time in the Tombs: Here is Steve Croman’s Inmate Record
The “Crowman” is jailed.
Convicted landlord Steve Croman was sentenced earlier this month to a year on Rikers Island. According to the public database of the city’s Department of Corrections, however, the new inmate hasn’t made it there yet.
The records misspell his name (i.e. Steve Crowman), and indicate that he’s presently incarcerated at the Manhattan Detention Complex. Otherwise known as The Tombs.
Croman was convicted this past summer on felony charges of grand larceny, tax fraud and filing a false instrument, but copped a plea deal in June to reduce the ultimate sentence. Under the terms of his plea, Croman will serve one year on Rikers Island and is forced to pay a $5 million tax settlement.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman continues to pursue the civil lawsuit against Steve Croman for “allegedly engaging in harassment of rent-regulated tenants and other illegal, fraudulent, and deceptive conduct in connection with his real estate business.” The state reportedly seeks an outcome where the landlord must forfeit his business and pay restitution.
