A federal judge ordered former Miss America Bess Myerson’s boyfriend, Carl (Andy) Capasso, transferred from a Pennsylvania prison to a New York halfway house to finish a sentence for tax evasion. But U.S. District Judge Charles Stewart, who sentenced Capasso in January, 1987, later stayed his own order until Friday, when he will receive papers on the Bureau of Prison’s argument that he does not have jurisdiction to designate a facility for Capasso. Capasso was acquitted with co-defendants Myerson and Hortense W. Gabel, a retired state Supreme Court justice, of charges they tried to fix Capasso’s alimony payments.
