"TROY, NY— A city man has opted to fight an order that he travel to Springfield, Mass., to testify for the prosecution in a triple torture and murder trial connected to a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club.

Justin Lasky appeared in Rensselaer County Court last week where Judge Debra Young ruled, after a hearing, that he must testify for Massachusetts prosecutors.

The order only states that Lasky is expected to corroborate the testimony of another witness.

Lasky believes that any testimony he could provide is of little value and fears for his safety if he gets involved in the prosecution of the brutal crime allegedly committed to silence witnesses, his attorney Lee Kindlon said.

Berkshire County District Attorney David Capeless has said that David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell were tortured, stabbed and shot in August 2011 by Adam Lee Hall with the help of two others.

Capeless alleges that Hall wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in an unrelated assault case. Hall allegedly made Glasser watch the slayings of the other two before he was murdered, Capeless has said.

Hall's trial began a week ago.

Capeless' order demands that Lasky appear to testify at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the trial being held in Sprinfield. The venue was moved there because of the publicity the case received in Berkshire County.

When Lasky appeared last week before Young, he was not represented by an attorney.

"We don't believe our client was awarded his due process and we feel as if the court took too big of a leap in ordering him to go without conducting a greater inquiry," Kindlon said. "From what we can see, the testimony will be cumulative and if so it is not necessary."

Kindlon has filed a motion to quash the order which is expected to be heard in Rensselaer County Court early next week.

The trials of two other men who were with Hall at the time of the murders are pending."

I think the man shouldn't have to testify, especially if he is scared for his own safety or his family or friends'. If in the end he is forced to testify, he should have the option to have police protection, financed by NYS and Massachusetts.
