Claim to fame: He landed on front and center in the major news outlets and was a near-permanent fixture in David Letterman monologues after his affair with 16-year old Amy Fisher culminated with Fisher attempting to kill the wife: Mary Jo Buttafuoco, shooting her in the head.
 
 
Where are they now? He served 4 months in prison for the statutory rape of Fisher. He and wife Mary Jo separated (surprisingly). He moved to Los Angeles in search of an acting career, hosted a public access cable show, did a few film cameos like Finding Forrester and The Godson. He wound up back in the slammer in 1995 after the hooker he attempted to hire turned out to be an undercover police officer. He has most recently been reported to have turned to environmental activism. Jan/2004 Joey pleads "not guilty" in California to charges involving an auto insurance scam. Update Mar 23/04: Back to prison for Buttafuoco. He is found guilty on the insurance fraud and sentenced to 1 year in jail, surrender is license to repair cars and pay $4,600 restitution to the insurance company he defrauded. Update March 8/2005 Joey weds Yugoslavian fiance Nando Sostilio at ceremony in Las Vegas.

Sarasota Florida has been a great hide away for famous individuals and others. It was a pleasant surprise to see our long lost couple outrageously attempting to look normal at Coleman's Tavern. Check out Coleman's when you need a great hideaway.
