Burt, the DA was alleging a lot more than insurance fraud initially, and people take such allegations as fact, which is sad and unfair. "Just The Facts" seemed to get confused about what allegations are and what facts are, despite his username. Obviously you understand a bit better how the system works than some others on this board who seem to think that just because the DA says something that makes it true. This DA has acted unscrupulously in many aspects of her tenure in Nassau County, including putting out information to the papers that has yet to be proven or even corroborated. The papers are also a bit at fault here for printing everything and anything that gets sent their way, and simply putting the word "allegedly" before each incriminating remark...A flawed system at best of convicting people in the court of public opinion before a deposition has even been taken...

you seem to have facts incorrect, as it was Vitta's testimony that led to the arrest of Brass. I believe what Skeptic was saying was that he/she basically doesn't like the district attorney for whatever reason, not that Brass wasn't guilty. I have to figure not even that person can believe a man who takes a plea is innocent. There sure are a lot of people on here with incorrect facts, however. Didn't you just read this story before you commented?

If you follow her track record by the way, I would have to agree that Kathleen Rice has not presented herself as having the greatest ethical sensibilities. She has demonstrated this recently with her posting of mug shots online and in newspapers for DUI offenders. As far as corruption that sounds like something of a stretch, however. It would surely be prudent to back such charges up with evidence of some sort, Skeptic.

actually read my post next time larry... never said he was innocent of what he pled to just that the DA alleged initially he had helped Vitta with his little drug dealing operation when he was never charged nor was there any evidence of such wrong doing on howard's part yet there it was on the news at 6! howard was labeled as a drug dealer with no evidence to support it, and that is why the judge literally threw that count out. The aids medicine scheme obviously happened but as far as everything else it was simply untrue and unfounded..

Incorrect facts was correct in their assessment that i do not like this DA, for multiple reasons regarding various cases.....

Jonathan happens to be a VERY good guy. IF and I do mean IF he is guilty of something I'm sure he had no idea anything was illegal until it was too late. I was his customer for 24 years and I still go to his OLD pharmacy as he can no longer work in a pharmacy since he no longer has a license. He is doing well since I have seen and spoken with him. People should keep their mouths shut unless they no what they are talking about. He HAS paid his dues and did his time and now he has a life to live. Perhaps the people that are against him should get their own life and leave his alone.

this is to all the douchebags who think they know what happened!! obviously some of you suffer from diminished capacity. If you checked and knew what you were talking about you would know;
1) he was never convicted of illegal sale of narcotics because he never did that
Did any of you ever hear of Michael Vick?? He payed his dues and is entitled to a life again. Perhaps the people who feel compelled to trash this family while hiding behind false names and unknown locations should stop lashing out. It's really quite hurtful, immature and only shows how jealous you are that you had a horrible childhood.

Lol @ the threat about the IP address. You can't do anything. And being so defensive and implying you know insider facts gives away YOUR identity.

His kids are probably popping pills too. So are yours.
