Convicted felon Steve Croman featured on CNBC's 'American Greed' tonight
"American Greed" — CNBC's true crime series that "examines the dark side of the American Dream" — features disgraced landlord Steve Croman in an episode that airs tonight at 10.
Croman's segment, titled "Lousy Landlord," will be on the second half of the episode. (Watch the trailer here.)
Croman was released from the Manhattan Correctional Facility on June 1 after serving eight months of a one-year jail sentence and paid a $5 million tax settlement following criminal charges brought by the AG's office for fraudulent refinancing of loans and tax fraud.
In a separate civil case, Croman agreed to pay $8 million to the tenants he was accused of bullying out of their rent-regulated apartments.
An independent management company is now overseeing Croman's residential properties — including 47 buildings with 617 units in the East Village — for the next five years.
