Peter Cedeno, NYC Divorce Attorney, Accused of Sexual Abuse

Published

on

Peter L. Cedeno, of Cedeño Law Group PLLC, a predatory New York City divorce attorney, may be disbarred for several sexual assault, coercion and misconduct allegations regarding his younger female clients. The accusations against the married 50-year-old divorce lawyer, of Ramsey NJ, have piled up since the 2016 filing of a bombshell lawsuit by former client Atesa Pacelli, a Battery Park City mom who was going through a highly contentious divorce. Now Cedeno could be facing a career-ending flood of people speaking out to describe his deceptive behavior as their fiduciary.

Lawsuit Against Peter Cedeno & Cedeno Law Group

Pacelli sued Cedeno alleging malpractice, professional negligence, and sexual assault. The suit states that Cedeno prolonged Pacelli’s divorce case and “leveraged his undue influence over her to engage her in a sexual relationship”. The suit charges that Cedeno manipulated her into an alcohol-laden lunch after a court hearing and then had sex with her. Cedeno then attempted to derail a reconciliation between Pacelli and her husband to ensure his own sexual relationship with her. He took “advantage of her intoxicated condition”, and she was “unable to meaningfully consent” as Cedeno was hoping to get her pregnant so that Pacelli “could not ignore” him. Cedeno tried to impress Pacelli and “assert his masculinity” by bragging that he liked to speed more than 120 mph and “outrun cops”, the suit alleges. He also claimed that he was addicted to pornography and had shot someone before taking the bar exam. In one bit of raunchy repartee, Cedeno sent a text message to his client saying “Right now I’m in the middle of doing something simply for pleasure, use your imagination.”

Cedeno threatened to attack Pacelli if news of his adulterous relationship became public. Pacelli has reported Cedeno to the state ethics committee and is weighing criminal charges against him. She shared her story because “I just don’t want it to happen to someone else”.

Since the details of the case became public, numerous other sexual misconduct allegations have been made against Peter Cedeno. Cedeno purportedly used his role as an attorney to pursue several sexual relationships, including one with the wife of a client between 2010 and 2012. Cedeno’s client has not been named publicly, and it is unclear if another lawsuit has been filed against Cedeno or if he has been reported to the state ethics committee for these actions.

The most recent victim of Peter Cedeno to go public has detailed an exchange where Cedeno demanded sex in exchange for his representation of her. The woman has initiated a Change.org petition to disbar Peter L. Cedeno and asked the Bar Association to investigate Peter L. Cedeno and his firm Peter L. Cedeno & Associates PC. The woman has not made her identity public and has filed the petition under the name “Jane Doe” describing the coercive behavior. She claims to be a former client and states that she hired Mr. Cedeno to represent her in a divorce complicated by a custody fight for her two children. Her Change.org petition alleges that Mr. Cedeno requested an after-hours meeting with her at his office the night before their first court appearance, where he stated that her retainer was gone. He then offered to represent her for free if she were to “go on dates” with him and “put out”. The woman claims that she refused Mr Cedeno’s advances.

The petition goes on to say that Mr. Cedeno arrived late and unprepared for the woman’s court date the next day and their court appearance was unsuccessful. She fired him and got another lawyer. She is asking the New York Bar Association to investigate both Peter Cedeno and his firm Cedeño Law Group, PLLC (formerly known as Peter L. Cedeno & Associates) for his conduct, pleading “Please don’t let your many fine decent and honorable members be damaged by the presence of a sleazy sexual predator”.

Family Law attorneys are prohibited from having sexual relations with clients because their clients are often in a vulnerable state. Should someone with questionable ethics or manipulative methods be trusted with the responsibility of representing emotionally wrecked clients? Peter Cedeno has a lot of explaining to do as his role as a divorce attorney is being challenged, and a New York Bar Association investigation seems inevitable.

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
