This man is responsible for the murder of 3 innocent men. He did NOT try to protect Glasser in any way. Even threaten him with cocaine charges if he did not testify.

Covered over the terror reign of Adam Lee Hall. Unbelievable what he swept under the rug on this guy.

Irresponsible behavior in the Cliff/Meridith Nilan case.

How much will corruption will Pittsfield take before something is done?

This up coming triple murder trial is going to be interesting.

I'd bet that the other two dirt bags will get stiff sentences but Adam Hall may get a light sentence because of what he knows about Capeless and the Hell's Angels.

Take a close look at this photo in full size.

You tell me this guy is not an alcoholic. He definitely drinks too much. How does he sleep at night?

In an example of the latter, witnesses told police that, in 2007, Hall coerced three women into engaging in sexual acts with his acquaintances for money, which Hall would keep most of, according to an affidavit filed in Central Berkshire District Court.

In an example of the latter, witnesses told police that, in 2007, Hall coerced three women into engaging in sexual acts with his acquaintances for money, which Hall would keep most of, according to an affidavit filed in Central Berkshire District Court.

The document details how, when the women told Hall they wanted to quit, Hall responded: "You work for me now; there's no way out." According to witnesses, "The girls never looked happy about having to have the sex, but did it out of fear of physical harm from Hall if they refused."

Since Capeless took over as Berkshire District Attorney in 2004, after DA Gerard Downing died in December 2003, the office hasn't successfully won a guilty finding in a single violent case against Hall.

The lone felony conviction against him in Berkshire County came under Downing in 1997, when Hall was found guilty of two counts of assault and battery and served a year in the Berkshire County Jail & House of Correction.

Asked about the dropped cases, police and court employees interviewed by The Eagle said Hall's name and violent reputation have been established in law-enforcement circles for years. The police source who said Hall long has been known for intimidating witnesses spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Court records in some cases, meanwhile, show that prosecutors had a difficult time getting witnesses to follow through with testimony in court.

In the case of the stabbing victim, a note on the docket says police "lost contact with witness." Likewise, a note attached to the 2006 case where Hall allegedly assaulted the pedestrian, a docket note says simply: "Witness failed to cooperate."

More explicitly, in a case never pursued by prosecutors, a man who said Hall had beaten and robbed him in 2009 told a grand jury in Berkshire Superior Court that he was reluctant to report the crime to police "out of fear of being killed by Hall and/or his associates," according to police records.
