Schadenfreude alert! D'Angelo indicted on 39 counts

Postby jjoyce » Wed Oct 10, 2007 6:13 pm

money laundering and frad

I'm not sure I can come up with a more disgraced local figure. Doesn't this even trump Chuck Chvala?

Pound for pound, I think Marsh Shapiro still holds up.

I believe the phrase is "f'd in the a."

I think the main word to focus on here is "alleged." Theres a lot of room in that word... Remember it's all about the lawyer and with a $32,000 cash payout after retirement I think he can afford a pretty good one.

Good luck with that. This guy could be aquitted on everything and he would still be disgraced. That's not ever going away.

Overcoming 39 indicments in a federal grand jury is not easy for any lawyer to overcome. Bye Bye Bobby.

For the unfortunate TV comment on the basketball team, or for something else?

I don't know much about federal fraud charges, but the guess here is that $32K isn't really going to get you very far.

messrs. george, chvala, and others were pursued, in part, for political activities. it was so blatant that it continues to keep people from running for office and a wide range of people agreed that states' attorney blanchard, who was running for re-election himself and timed everything for maximum political impact (even if it meant being sloppy in some areas) , has a clear conflict of interest, ipso facto.

I was reading all the counts, in today's paper. And I thought, maybe he was proud of the sexual harrassment charge and hoped all his other misdeeds would be overlooked, by the glare of his pecadillo.

Agreed. Even if he's only found guilty on a few counts, he's getting locked up. Not much of a way to finish out your life.

Well, I was going to say the glare of his affair, but I wouldn't call harrassment an affair, well, maybe a sordid one, or an unsavory one....

Is his golden parachute contingent on having had a clean nose, or will it be available to defray defense costs?

He might be a jerk (and he was the one time I met him and the things I hear from a certain State St business owner) but the dude did make $220,000 in 5 years selling books and cds in his spare/city time. Damn.
