Bob Sambol of Bob’s Steak & Chop House Pleads Guilty to Felony Theft

DMN’s Jennifer Emily reports Bob Sambol, founder of Bob’s Steak & Chop House, pleaded guilty this afternoon to felony theft. Sambol was accused of taking $300,000 from an investor to make improvements on the restaurant. The improvements were never made.  Sambol will repay the debt. He received 10 years of deferred adjudication. I reached Bob on his cell. “It’s settled. It’s over,” Sambol said. “Business is great at Bob’s and there is a bright future to look forward to.”

  2. I had to parse that three times before I saw it was “on his cell,” and not “in his cell.”

  3. Bob’s been hanging around with too many lawyers and politicians who think there’s nothing wrong with what he did.

  4. Bob has always been kind to me and my husband. We love his restaurant but are disappointed to read this. I hope he mends his ways.

  5. @Jeannie: If you really want to help Bob, give him the trifecta in the 5th at Aqueduct this Saturday.

  6. Bob is so dillusional!!! Doesn’t appear from this story that anything is over or settled. He hasn’t even received his sentencing yet.

  7. If he adheres to all of the paraments set forth in the probabtion sentence, after 10 years the first degree felony will no longer be on his record.
