In Fraud Trial of Norman Gray Drea Pizziconi Reads Her Texts Amid Condo Ouster then Cross

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 22 – Norman Gray is on trial for allegedly defrauding Andrea Pizziconi out of $500,000. On May 22, she testified before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer. Inner City Press was there.  

 The Assistant US Attorney had Pizziconi read her text messages to Gray on the fateful days, in the fall of 2020.

She was asking for her money back, for a condo she had moved her belongings into. The seller asked the super to throw her out, triggering memories from her childhood, all in the long text messages. 

 Gray, who was awarded a position at a Connecticut institution of higher learning known for polling, put her off, asking for more time, including to visit with her grandchildren. She obliged him. But the indictment followed.

   Later, Gray's lawyer Martin Bell, previously an SDNY prosecutor, conducted an open-ended cross examination.

  The case is US v. Gray, 21-cr-713 (Engelmayer)
