Mr. Landry called his lawyer, who told the youth to stop contacting Mr. Landry, Mr. Nappan said. Eventually, Mr. Nappan said, he decided to give the complainant money. He said the amount was less than $1,000. It was Mr. Nappan's money.
Mr. Nappan said he contacted the district attorney's office and told them of his intentions to pay the alleged victim. Undercover state police helped deliver the money, Mr. Nappan said.

Talk about a set up!!!! Why is the lawyer contacting the kid. no record of the text message or calls Call this taking care of the guy in blue!!!! is he under 18 why wasn't a adult contacted is it legal to even talk to him without a adult???

Could all of this really be true? Did Larry the Lawman's Lawyer arrange to have an under cover Mass State cop or two deliver some hush hush money to an underage boy? If hush hush money was actually given to this young lad, does that have anything to do with the recent verdict on this disturbing case? Did the young lad back off on the complaint, after getting a pocket full of hush hush money?

Perhaps Larry the Lawman chose the wrong career path way back when....maybe he should have joined the Catholic Church instead of becoming a cop.....

Mr. Landry was looking at 20 years in prison and had already suffered from publicity on the allegations, Mr. Nappan said.

We did everything right,” Mr. Nappan said today.“We did everything right … Are you going to put your hands in the faith of the jury, or are you going to do what we did?”

Ya what you did was set this kid up!!! He DID NOT get a NOT GUILTY so you can't clam he is innocent.

The so called young lad was texting Landry and trying to get money out of him! You can bet the boy didn't think of this himself!
