I rented a room in Smithtown during a transitional period, short term at 37 Sheppard Lane, Smithtown, NY 11787. The homeowners Cecilia Emmino's son Gennaro Emmino aka Jerry Emmino met with me in January of 2013. During our first meeting he asked me for a $100 deposit to hold the room for me until February 1st. He said he would only accept cash. I agreed. He reluctantly gave me a receipt. I returned a few weeks later to give him the 1st months rent and one months security deposit. Again CASH ONLY! No receipt! At that time 2 more women moved into the house. I was told that I had full use of the kitchen and all common areas of the house inclusive of the gym in the garage. Within 2 weeks Jerry informed me that I could not use the gym or pool in Summer as promised so he put a lock on the garage. He entered my room several times in the middle of the night to chat. WEIRD, I thought. I was told that I could use the house phone for local calls. One day, by mistake I set the answering machine on. I was screamed at and accused of making the phone my own personal phone (I never recorded a welcoming message) I told him he was nuts. He called me a liar, told me I could tell his Mother this story as if he were threatening me with his Mother. His Mother came to the house and accused me of the same. I responded the same. (the apple does not fall far from the tree) Two weeks later they made a huge scene because I parked in the driveway, I got fed up with the nonsense and told them I'd be moving out by May 1st. They insisted I give them rent and I'd get the deposit back when I leave. I refused! Because A. I painted my room, the kitchen and hallway, repaired large holes in the walls and installed switch plates and socket plates throughout the house (they were uncovered) Jerry turned off the heat for over a week during one of the coldest weeks in February. Finally, in the first week of March he tried to push me into the basement and RAPE me. I told him I'd call the police so he let me go. The money he collects from 4 tenants in the house are given to him in cash without receipts. I seriously doubt that he and his Mother are paying tax on this money. After a google search of the referenced address I found out that the house is not in Cecilas or his name. As it turns out it is part of an estate which is to be shared with him and his sisters. The estate was never legally formed as such and the house is still in his deceased fathers name, X husband of Cecila.
