Bryan Kocis and The Luzerne County DA’s Office

The Philadelphia non-profit organization that brought suit against Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella is trying to widen their suit to include Luzerne County as the party responsible for The Luzerne County DA’s Office.

It should be obvious to anyone with any legal training that it is impossible to have a Judge abusing the constitutional right to counsel of a criminal defendant without shit falling also on the prosecuting party. The Luzerne County DA was the prosecuting party in the Kids-for-Cash Scandal. It is IMPOSSIBLE for the Luzerne County DA’s Office to simply walk away from the Kids-For-Cash Scandal without, at the very least, the lawyers who prosecuted juvenile cases before Ciavarella being disbarred.

We are ON RECORD at least a year ago declaring that the Kids-for-Cash Scandal in Luzerne County would eventually Bring Down The Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office. The simple fact of the matter is that all lawyers admitted to the bar are officers of the court. Being “An Officer of the Court” Means / Meant that The Luzerne County District Attorney was REQUIRED to Act in the Interest of Justice in juvenile court before Judge Mark Ciavarella. In other words, The Luzerne County DA was required to DEMAND that Juveniles before Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella be provided with legal counsel. With or without specific training for Juvenile court, even a complete fucking idiot (who somehow managed to graduate from A law school) should know that criminal defendants are legally entitled to lawyers.

Former DA David Lupas and Current DA Jackie Musto Carroll are claiming that:

1. They didn’t know what was going on in Juvenile Court; and
2. That they didn’t train the assistant DA’s on Juvenile Court proceedure.

TRANSLATION: Lupas and Musto Carroll are refusing to plead guilty like Conahan and Ciavarella. It even seems that Lupas and Musto Carroll are CONVINCED that their We Didn’t Know shit is gonna fly. If Musto Carroll didn’t know what was going on in Juvenile Court, she sure as shit shouldn’t be the fucking District Attorney NOW!

From where I sit, Lupas’ and Musto Carroll’s claims are DEFENSES they can cite when Criminal charges are brought against them and during their disbarment hearings.

Bryan Kocis, Cobra Video and The Luzerne County DA’s Office

Just as a tax evasion charged was used to eventually bring down Al Capone, the US Attorney has to know that he can use Bryan Kocis and Cobra Video to bring down Lucpas, Musto Carroll and The Luzerne County DA’s Office.

The US Attorney HAS TO KNOW that he can waste a shit load of time and money trying to convict The Luzerne County DA’s Office in re the Kids-For-Cash Scandal when it would be much easier and quicker to bring a criminal RICO against the Luzerne County DA’s Office for allowing Bryan Kocis to operate Cobra Video out of his basement.

As we pointed out several times before, since the production of adult videos is illegal in Pennsylvania and since it is illegal to pay someone money to perform in the production of adult videos in Pennsylvania, each and every single instance in which Bryan Kocis paid someone money to perform in the production of a Cobra Video in Luzerne County could easily to be used to support a complaint under the Federal RICO statute arguing that Kocis was operating a racketeering enterprise with the help and assistance of Luzerne County.

The Luzerne County DA is on record knowing that Kocis was operating Cobra Video out of his basement. The Luzerne County DA was even quoted a newspaper saying it returned video equipment to Kocis after Kocis’ 2002 Guilty Plea because Kocis was operating a LEGAL BUSINESS. The Luzerne County DA was claiming that Kocis operating a gay porn production studio out of his basement was A Legal Business despite the fact that the production of adult videos was and still is illegal in The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
