Joe Piscopo
A 40-year-old Hackettstown, NJ woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to stealing from WNYM 970 AM the Answer morning host Joe Piscopo and agreed to share restitution of $170,805.

The Bergen Record report Jennifer Larocca appeared Wednesday afternoon with defense attorney Eduardo J. Jimenez before Superior Court Judge Catherine Enright in Morristown. Under questioning by Jimenez, Larocca admitted that she stole between $500 and $75,000 between September 2010 and 2014 from a person identified as J.P. but whom other authorities identified as Joe Piscopo.

Morris County Assistant Prosecutor Francine Ehrenberg had Larocca confirm that her husband was employed by the victim to pay his bills and do bookkeeping work. Larocca agreed that she wrote checks to herself from the victim's account to pay personal bills

Piscopo, also known by his nickname "Jersey Joe," starred in the 1980s on Saturday Night Live along with Eddie Murphy. He was known for his impressions of Frank Sinatra and later starred in his own HBO Comedy special show.
