Kaiman has denied knowledge of the transaction, and the district attorney's office has said there is no evidence to the contrary.

Yeah, right.

Tom McDonough is one of the finest people I have had the pleasure to know. I am fortunate to have him as a friend.Our judicial system does not mandate that someone who is accused of a crime must testify in his or her own defense.. In the United States a person accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty. The standard of proof is guilt beyond a resasonable doubt. Our system is not perfect, as this case should have never gone to indictment or trial, but it is the only system we have. Tom McDonough will be aquitted of these charges.
As far as your comments about not taken the heat, Tom McDonough is more of a man than most and a better man would be hard to find.
You gotta be kidding

Easy to see why the defense went for summary judgement.

Too bad Rosen didn't call the supervisor.

No-name says it all about you. An alternative would be no-life or how about no-friends or the ever popular no one will miss me if I disappear.
