FYI

Ian Campbell Gent, one of Guy Gane's accomplices is scheduled to be sentenced September 13, 2012 at 9:00 am.

His and Jim Lagona's motion for a new trial was shot down by Judge Skretny. A new trial, that's laughable. Not only did these two crooks have taxpayer-paid attorneys to defend them, but then they put the court through a jury trial who returned guilty verdicts on all counts within a day! I think Judge Skretny is about fed up with Pozi schemers. He gave 82 year old Richard Piccoli 20 years and told him he'll probably die in prison.

I hope he gives Gent and Lagona 20 years.

Lagona was in the news today - he's still in jail and his Hochul thing has added to the downfall. I have a question - didn't Gane's kids have to repay the money that Gane gave them? Was that ever done?

He found that the prosecutor was withholding evidence. In sure some deal was made to keep him quiet.
