Bill Cosby has faced many accusation of sexual assault, but most of them didn’t reach court, apart a case of Andrea Constand. But it wasn’t she that made it possible to raise criminal charges against Cosby, but her two lawyers, D.M. Troiani and B.H. Kivitz.
During whole legal journey of Ms. Constand these two have been challenging Mr. Cosby. It started with first criminal investigation that sadly never led to charges and continued through civil proceedings in which they reached financial settlement for their client with Mr. Cosby.
One of their latest actions against Cosby was disclosure of confidential testimony made by Cosby that was a part of the civil settlement in which Cosby confirmed that he obtained sedative and hypnotic medication known as Quaaludes in order to have sex with women. This was disclosed to become the evidence after the announcement that criminal charges are being brought against Cosby.
Legal team of Mr. Cosby complained about the conduct of these two lawyers, saying that they wage personal war against Cosby and that the information they disclosed should be not used as evidence because it was confidential. None of those two lawyers accepted an offer for interview, but they said everything that was needed in the courtroom.
Ms. Troiani said that she is a very passionate person and that she is still furious about the treatment her client received back in 2005 when the criminal charge was denied. She said that her client was treated as someone that done something wrong and not many people looked at her as the victim. Her client was asked a barrage of questions that were aimed to prove that Cosby was just a victim not the wrongdoer.
las vegas DUI lawyer who closely followed this case and other accusations that were aimed at Cosby shared his opinion. He said that these two lawyers did what no one could. They showed that Bill Cosby is not everyone’s granddad, but a man that is willing to drug women to abuse them. Their passion is only rivaled by their support and loyalty they have to Ms. Constand. They are the best examples of good lawyers and other lawyers should learn from them.
Killing of Carmen Torres-Gonzales in the South Bronx showed people how much damage is done by the system that ignores those that are in need.
To remind you South Bronx is not really a friendly neighborhood, in fact it is one of the more dangerous places in USA. Crime is an everyday thing in a place like South Bronx, but I will not delve in that too much. Ms. Carmen was killed by 26 years old Angel Feliz-Volquez, a resident who lived in the same building as the victim. The assailant charged Ms. Carmen with 20-inch machete and stricken her repeatedly with it, causing injuries on upper portion of victim’s body including severing of one hand. After he was done he just stood over lifeless body of his victim.
Detectives that worked on the case found out that Mr. Feliz-Volquez was diagnosed with schizophrenic disorder. But that disease is not the main reason for this killing, the secret lies in the whole system.
The increasing numbers of vicious killings in areas that have low crime rate are caused by two things, entrenched violence in highly packed buildings due to dysfunctional public housing and lack of effective services that are provided to mentally ill people who don’t have enough money to buy expensive medication.
Lack of support and care for mentally ill people means that they don’t receive medication that would keep them sane, and government is turning their back on those people, endangering their lives and lives of people that live near them.
Several long beach Criminal defense lawyers sat down and talked about this problem. They said that government and its agencies are responsible for mentally ill people that aren’t able to buy the medication. Protecting the citizens is the priority for every government, and by having ineffective system like this is counter-productive.
A Queens Pizzeria worker who is suspected of having ties with organized crime was arrested for torching of a car owned by rival pizzeria. The suspect burned himself as well in order to cover the evidence of his crime.
His story was that he burned himself by knocking over a pot that contained chicken and rise from the stove in his house. Fire marshals that were responsible for investigation of car torching checked with the mother of Gabrielli (man that was responsible for torching) about alleged fire in their house, but she told them that there was indeed a fire in the house, but there were no dirty dishes in the kitchen.
Gabrielli’s involvement in torching of the car, Mercedes Benz, which was owned by the owner of Sofia’s Pizzeria, was proven by the report from hospital where they said that his clothes smells of gasoline. Possible and probable reason for this crime lies in a 1 300 dollars worth catering order taken by Sofia’s Pizzeria, but it should have been done by Aldo Calore, Gabrielli’s grandfather and owner of Aldo’s Pizzeria. Defense lawyer denied that after the release of Gabrielli with 700 000 dollars of bail.
His grandfather was one of the bail signers, other being his sister Eleanor who is dating John Gotti Junior, grandson of famous Gambino boss John Gotti.
As a condition for his release the prosecutor demanded a list of members of organized crime that don’t have any connection to Gabrielli.
Criminal defense attorney orange county is was very interested in this case and he said that there are some things that should have been done better. He said that Italian mobsters are famous for their strong ties to family. That connection can be seen in torching of a luxury car due to rivalry in Pizza industry. Further investigation should have happened in this case, but it might be too late now.
