Woman gets five years for branding lover - June 13, 2008, 12:50 PM

NEW YORK - A Manhattan woman who admitted she forcibly branded an "R" on a former lover's body with a hot iron has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Kristina Caban was sentenced for what state Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus called a "bizarre" crime that was "not remotely justifiable."

Prosecutors say 23-year-old Caban hatched the plan against Samir Sara for having sex with her once in 2004 and never calling her again.

Prosecutors say Caban enlisted new boyfriend Robert Testagrossa to help brand a four-inch-high "R" on 23-year-old Samir's abdomen in October 2006.


Caban and 27-year-old Testagrossa pleaded guilty to assault in August 2007. She was allowed to graduate from the School of Visual Arts before going to prison.

Defense lawyer James Friedman calls Caban "a good kid" who "exercised poor judgment and got herself into a bad situation."






BACKGROUND STORY

http://www.nypost.com/seven/10292006...rk_bulliet.htm


October 29, 2006 -- A scorned woman launched a twisted attack against an old lover, when she allegedly lured him to a seedy Chelsea hotel where she had two thugs brand him with an "R" - because he never called her after they hooked up, police sources said.
Kristina Caban, 21, had a liaison with Samir Sara, 23, in 2004 - but she still burned so hot for him that she allegedly ambushed him last week and had her cohorts sear the 4-inch letter into the side of his torso, law-enforcement sources said.

The 21-year-old Manhattan woman was being held last night on $35,000 on charges of kidnapping, robbery and assault in the startling attack last Sunday.
One of the men who allegedly branded Sara is Robert Testagrossa, 25, of East 25th Street - the son of two high-powered prosecutors, police sources said.

He was charged yesterday with robbery, unlawful imprisonment, assault with disfigurement, kidnapping and criminal impersonation.

The identity of the second assailant wasn't known yesterday.
Caban allegedly told cops that the couple's long-ago sex encounter was forced - leading cops to initially think the "R" was for rape, a law enforcement source said.

After questioning, however, she backed off that excuse for the sinister searing, and finally conceded that she was angry that Sara had ended things between them, the source said.
"They had sex several years ago and she was angry because he didn't contact her," the source said.

When contacted by The Post, Sara was simply red with embarrassment.
"Nobody needs to know what happened to me - it's nobody's business," he said.
Testagrossa's father, Charles A. Testagrossa, is the executive assistant district attorney for major crimes under Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. His mother, Maria Testagrossa, is a lawyer in the Nassau County DA's Office.

The younger Testagrossa once worked in the Queens DA's office as a paralegal, records show.

Sara hadn't even told his family the full details of the story - only that his attackers had robbed him of $10.

"It's messed up that the kid got robbed, especially if their parents are all that. I don't know why they took his money then," said Sara's 25-year-old brother.
It wasn't clear how Caban met Testagrossa, but a neighbor said Caban referred to herself as his girlfriend.
The series of events that led to the white-hot iron attack began sometime last Sunday, when the pair met at the Half King bar in Chelsea for drinks, according to a source familiar with the case.


As they got reacquainted, Caban suggested they retire to the Chelsea Inn on West 23rd Street and 11th Avenue, the source said.

But the meeting was not a rekindling of love - it was a brutal trap.

Caban had allegedly arranged for Testagrossa and the other man to be waiting in Room 212 - a 9-by-12-foot space with cigarette burns on the furniture and gaudy green carpeting.

When Caban and Sara arrived last Sunday, the men inside allegedly punched him in the face, robbed him of $10 and took his cellphone, a source said.

Testagrossa allegedly produced a badge and shouted at him: "I'm a Long Island police officer, get on the ground."

According to the source, one of the assailants was armed with a gun, the other with a Taser.

No weapons were fired in the attack.
The men allegedly restrained Sara with duct tape and pulled down his pants.
Then the victim suddenly felt "something hot," the source said. It was not clear what sort of implement was used to brand the victim.

After the assailants left, the stunned and bleeding Samir bit through the tape and began screaming, alerting a guest in the next room.
Chelsea Inn manager Ali Asgar vividly recalled the events that night, saying two men rented Room 212 for $84 in cash, saying "their cousin will be here soon."
"She was only up there for 10 minutes, and then came back down and asked for her ID back," he recalled. "Then she left."
Seven or eight minutes later, the two original renters came down, returning the key to the room, he said.

Two minutes after that, Asgar said he got a panicked call from the guest in Room 214.
"The guy in 212, he needs help!" Asgar quoted the distraught caller saying.
Asgar said he sent up an attendant, who found Samir bound about the eyes, mouth, wrists and ankles.

"Call police - there's something wrong," the panicked attendant told Asgar.
Police raced to the scene and seized the duct tape and a pillow case - but found no equipment that might have been used in the branding.

"I feel very bad this happened in my place, but I cannot refuse people a room," he said. "I was very busy at the time. They looked fine."
"I thought they were Europeans - but they had no luggage."

At the Slate Hill home of Caban's parents, a man and woman screamed at a reporter to leave the property and said their daughter does not live at the Orange County address any longer.

Attempts to reach Testagrossa or a representative were unsuccessful.

How the hell did she ever think she was going to get away with this master plan? Very curious as to the significance of the "R" and where the brand was actually administered. One statement says "stomach", another "torso", then it referrences pulling the pants down which would not be necessary for either.

Twisted young lady there. Stalker.
