The LuLac Edition #1649, June 20th, 2011


Closing arguments were given in the case against Bob Cordaro and A.J. Munchak. Prosecutor Lorna Graham said that both defendants led lives that were out of the ordinary realm of everyday people pointing to the 30,000 dollars that was allegedly passed around from one of the county vendors. Defense Attorney William Costopoulos said Cordaro and Munchak were men of honor and accomplishment. He highlighted the achievements of the duo’s time in office and once more reminded the jurors that testimony witnesses against the former and sitting Commissioner had immunity. The jury received instructions from Judge Caputo and will start deliberations on Tuesday morning.

Three and one half hours of explanation with more coming this morning would damn sure have me confused. Guilty or innocent, I dont like the way the Feds handled some of this investigation and I have serious problems with the immunity issue. Seems like they gave immunity to everybody except Paul Sorvino which is probably why no charges were filed on that scam.
Its in the hands of the jury now or will be later this morning. I wish those twelve citizens the best in sorting this mess out. On the surface it looks bad for the defense, but I wouldnt be surprised which way it turns out.

the defense theory is that the witnesses dreamed up crimes in which they participated so they could get immunity.
