This is old news, but an article in PolitickerNJ today opened an old wound.
According to police, on July 20, 2008 Cappelli was charged with simple assault after allegedly slamming his wife’s arm in a door, “causing a visible injury.”
What does a cold case against a Camden County freeholder have to do with Jane Jannarone? Lou Cappelli was hired to be the Cumberland County Planning Board attorney. Of course, we cannot make major decisions regarding county planning without approval from the Camden machine. MWatch posted a caution about Cappelli in our early days. What is interesting is that Jane Jannarone voted to hire this accused wife-beater.
Jacqueline Cappelli also has filed a civil suit against her husband and another man alleging fraud, embezzlement and forgery. The suit alleges that Cappelli withdrew almost $300,000 from a joint account without her knowledge using a fradulent power of attorney.
