Part of the job of a New York City marshal is evicting tenants and enforcing court orders. But records show that city marshal Charles Marchisotto isn’t enforcing orders at his own buildings.

Marchisotto landed on the city’s list of worst landlords last year over violations at his five-story, 38-unit Eastern Parkway property, according to the New York Post.

He has 150 open building violations and $278,000 in unpaid fines, fees and taxes. Nevertheless, Marchisotto’s gross income from 2008 to 2013 was $1.98 million, records show.

Marchisotto told the Post that the allegations against him and his buildings were fabricated by a handful of tenants. Marchisotto also acknowledged that he owed the city money, but is disputing the amount owed.

“A city inspector just came by and said that I had the cleanest, nicest building in New York City,” Marchisotto said. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
