I hope he lost his wife and children. Unless his wife decided to turn the other way, because, God forbid, she would have to actually work for a living. Who knows maybe she was in on it.

WOW! according to the article they raided his house back in 2003 so there is no telling how many other solicitation he performed online from somewhere else online. He a lawyer who paid his high price lawyer to pospone his case for almost 6 years wow you have to have money and court connections to do something like that! This man is twisted mentally and deserves exactly what he gets and now he will get to know about gang rape sex while he's in federal lock up!

Eric Gaynor's lawyer Attorney Hugh Keefe in one of the 5 best lawyers in Connecticut and New York..... Read some of his accolades:

He has taught Trial Advocacy at the Yale Law School for over twenty five years – since 1979. He was the first lawyer in the United States to be board-certified in both civil and criminal trial advocacy, having received that duel certification from the National Board of Trial Advocacy in 1980. He has been re-certified every five years by the NBTA in both fields, and is rated “AV” by Martindale-Hubbell. Attorney Keefe has received many professional awards and recognitions during his legal career, including the Distinguished Alumni Award from both his law school and undergraduate college: the University of Connecticut School of Law in 1985 and Quinnipiac University in 1991. In addition, he received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Quinnipiac University Law School at its commencement on 5/9/04. In 2007, Attorney Hugh F.

Attorney Keefe was inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers4 as a Fellow in 1984.

He was also listed in New York Magazine in its July, 2006 and 2007 editions as one of the best lawyers in the New York area. He has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America every year since its initial publication in 1983.

Attorney Keefe was named in 2008 by Irish America Magazine & the Irish Voice Newspaper to their inaugural Legal 100, i.e., the first listing of the leading 100 Irish American lawyers in the United States.

On the other hand, it sounds like he was only accused and convicted of a single bad act - passing along a video of underage sex acts that someone else made.

ALL the other actions the prosecutor is quoted as mentioning - soliciting models, posting speedo pictures, etc. seems to only be non-criminal cereal filler.

known this being for many years - always considered 'weird' since teenage years - 5.5 yrs in prison is not long enough. There is no room in society for this behavior.

double lives seem to be getting more and more prevalent...
3 wks ago, remember reading about the murdered radio announcer?
George Webber?
Everyone at the New York station he worked for never had a clue!
He was on Craigs List looking for some sex w/guys and wanted to be tied, beaten, rough sex!
I remember hearing him on the radio, nice voice, seemed like a nice guy...but his co-workers were astonished!

It is amazing to me that with all the evidence against this man, that there are residents in this town, NOT ME, who think this man was "framed" and that he is really a "good guy." ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! If this doesn't throw up a red flag as to the man's character, then what will????

Hey Ernie.... There's a HUGE difference between homosexuality and the perversions you listed here.
Homosexual behavior, just like heterosexual behavior
is between 2 consenting ADULTS.
