Tony Viola Biography

Tony Viola, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cleveland-based Realty Corporation of America, graduated from Georgetown University in Washington, DC and has an MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. Realty Corporation of America, a licensed real estate brokerage and auction services business, had offices in Ohio and Florida and over 150 team members. In 2008, Tony was indicted by a multi-jurisdictional Mortgage Fraud Task Force, alleging he orchestrated the "Nation's Largest Mortgage Fraud Scheme." Following a federal conviction, Tony established his innocence at a second trial using Bates stamped federal evidence that Justice Department suppressed before the first trial, but that was provided by a whistleblower inside the prosecutor's office, the Task Force's Office Manager Dawn Pasela. In 2020, both the FBI and Justice Departmet admitted making materially false statements in sworn affidavits about evidence in Tony's case and Tony was released from jail after a decade of wrongful imprisonment. Details about Tony's criminal case are available at www.FreeTonyViola.com.
