The Public Service Execution of Bryan Kocis Part IV

December 28, 2011 in Bryan Kocis The Thing, Freak Show Trial by Marion

A couple of days ago, I ran across this old news item from The TimesLeader of Luzerne County, PA in which this reporter Ed Lewis was clearly trying to write this flattering fluff piece on how Assistant DA Michael Melnick obtained a conviction of Harlow Cuadra.  Lewis described the conviction of Harlow Cuadra as A Michael Melnick Production.

Truth trumps every word out of killer Cuadra EDWARD LEWIS OPINION

As if the prosecutions of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes in Fucking Luzerne County Pennsylvania is something that could possibly ever go down in legal history as some kind of brilliant display of legal expertise. It does however look like Melnick is the only person involved in the Cuadra case who isn’t either IN JAIL or ABOUT TO BE UNEMPLOYED.

1.  Two President Judges during Harlow Cuadra’s Trial, Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavrella, are now in prison on racketeering charges.  Make special note here that Conahan and Ciavarella are in prison for “running the Luzerne County Court System like a Racketeering Enterprise“.  Both Conahan and Ciavarella made pre-trial rulings on Harlow Cuadra’s and Joseph Kerekes’ trials.

2.  The Judge over Harlow Cuadra’s Trial was ousted by voters largely, it is alleged, because photos of him with Conahan and a convicted Drug Dealer surfaced during his campaign for re-election.  This Judge, a former Luzerne County Prosecutor, claimed that he didn’t know the man he was photographed with was a convicted drug dealer.

3.  It goes without saying that if Michael Melnick was an elected official, he too would be facing unemployment, just like his boss Luzerne County Prosecutor Jackie Musto-Carroll.  The all time greatest display of ignorance in the history of law has to be Musto-Carroll’s declaration / pronouncement that “Kids For Cash Had Nothing To Do With Her“.  A non-profit legal aid group in fucking Philadelphia could see that something was wrong with Juvenile Court in Luzerne County but Musto-Carroll, who’s fat ass was actually sitting IN Luzerne County, couldn’t see that something was wrong with Juvenile Court in Luzerne County.  Two corrupt Judges Conahan and Ciavarella were handing Musto-Carroll convictions while Musto-Carroll was bragging about her conviction rate as a prosecutor but, Musto-Carroll had no clue that Conahan and Ciavarella were crooks.  Musto-Carroll even opposed the actions by the Philadelphia Law Group for the appellate court to throw out juvenile convictions from Luzerne County.

4.  Producing Porn and Paying Someone To Perform Sex Acts For Money have not been decriminalized in Pennsylvania.  Someone really has to fucking explain to me how a fucking lawyer could go before a Court (in a fucking death penalty murder trial) and claim that Bryan Kocis was just a regular business man running a legal business and that Kocis had a contract with Sean Lockhart.  The fucking business we are talking about here is the production of gay pornography in a state where the production of any kind of pornography has not been decriminalized.  And,  no “agreement” to pay someone money to perform sex acts has ever been found to be a legal contract in Pennsylvania nor in any other state where porn or prostitution has not been decriminalized.

The Michael Melnick Production repeatedly claimed that Harlow Cuadra killed Bryan Kocis to get Sean Lockhart out of a contract Lockhart had with Bryan Kocis / Cobra Video, that Sean Lockhart was contractually bound to Bryan Kocis / Cobra Video.  By every available legal decision in The United States that I know of, any agreement  Lockhart had with Kocis to perform sex acts for money was legally unenforceable.

Again, as we have asked many times …

Given All of The Above …

Just Imagine What That Piece of Shit Bryan Kocis Could Have Gone On To Do In Fucking Luzerne County Pennsylvnia if someone hadn’t chopped the murtherfucker’s head off?

Boy Batter Lee by bitchlessness

John Roecker Harlow Cuadra Documentary DVD

May 6, 2010 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Regent Media / Here Media has released John Roecker’s documentary Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Gay Pornstars.

According to rumor, Here Media also bought the rights to a book about Harlow Cuadra’s Murder Trial.

Tell me this …

If you are a big media company and, you have a DVD and a Book both essentially about Harlow Cuadra, wouldn’t it make sense from a PR perspective to release both the book and the DVD at the same time? That is if you had any plans to release the book at all?

It seems painfully apparent NOW that nobody is going to get rich and famous from a book about Harlow Cuadra’s and Joseph Kerekes’ prosecutions. Is John Roecker gaining national fame and fortune from his DVD featuring Harlow Cuadra beyond the attention Roecker already had as a documentary producer? THE BIG STORY out of Luzerne County continues to be Judicial Corruption. The Prosecutions of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes are of interest, so far, only from the angle that almost everyone involved in their prosecutions has been tainted by scandal.

Book Deals Publishing and Dinosaurs

Publishing Houses (i.e., book publishers) like Record Companies have traditionally been desirable because of their distribution power. A Publishing House could make hundreds of thousands of books, create PR for a book and distribute that book nationally and internationally. Similarly, a Record Company has the means to press hundreds of thousands of records and distribute those records nationally and internationally. However,

Today, as most people know, The Ultimate Distribution System is The Fucking Internet. Many many authors, and many many musicians have recognized that The Internet is The Ultimate Distribution System and the ultimate System for generating Buzz about a product. And,

If you distribute your record or book yourself via the internet, you get to keep ownership rights to your product. Traditionally, when you sign a book deal with a publishing company or a record deal with a record company, the Publisher and / or The Record Company gets the ownership rights to the book or record.

Temping Book vs Temping Website

I met a guy temping who was paid by a major book publisher to write a book about temping. According to this guy, he was paid $5,000 in the late 1990′s by this major book publisher to write the temping book. THAT GUY has no rights to the book he wrote and, more likely than not, the only money THAT GUY has ever made from that book was the $5,000 he was paid to write the book. A website on temping could make more than $5,000 in four months via display advertising.

The Best Way to Kill A Book is To Buy It

There continue to be rumors out there about what happened to this book Oprah Winfrey’s “father” allegedly wrote. It seems that book just vanished off the face of the earth.

Any material in a book about Cuadra’s prosecution sold to a book publisher, it seems to us, can’t be used on any blog or website without the permission of the publishing company.

In the case of the Cuadra Book, The Company that gets to say what the authors can and cannot do with what they wrote is The Same Company that has a financial interest in the success of John Roecker’s DVD.

Harlow Cuadra by any means necessary

April 30, 2010 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Harlow Cuadra is one of the Young Bucks in Heat. See also “Major Hardon” and “Boy Splatter

Michael T. Conahan, one of two former county judges charged in the kids-for-cash scandal has agreed to plead guilty in the case, according to court documents.

Conahan will plead guilty to a single count of racketeering, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The plea agreement filed today contains no agreed-upon sentence, unlike a previous agreement in the case that mandated an 87-month prison sentence for Conahan and his co-defendant, former judge Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. Citizenvoice.com

BACK IN THE DAY, we pointed out that it was more than a little bit ODD that Michael Conahan announced his intent to retire ON The SUNDAY before Harlow Cuadra’s arrest.

The President Judge at the time of Harlow Cuadra’s arrest, Michael Conahan, is set to plead guilty to RACKETEERING. Do you know what Racketeering is?

Criminal Racketeering per federal law involves a pattern of fraud and, by its very title, criminal racketeering involves an organized GROUP of people. A single individual can’t be A Racketeering Enterprise. Conahan’s Guilty Plea amounts to his admission that he was one of a GROUP of people involved in an ongoing pattern of fraud.

The Federal Racketeering Laws were created to give Prosecutors more power to go after organized crime. In Luzerne County Pennsylvania, you have a fucking Judge pleading guilty to racketeering.

Harlow Cuadra’s Guilt is Irrelevant At This Point

In The United States of America, you can’t have people placed on trial for their lives by court systems like the one in Luzerne County Pennsylvania. Ultimately, some appeals court at some level has to VOID ALL CRIMINAL CONVICTIONs in Luzerne County that occurred with the direct or indirect participation of Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella. Listen,

How can a Fucking Racketeering Enterprise accord anyone a fair and impartial Trial? It’s fucking INSANE!

District attorneys association vows more involvement in juvenile justice system

Again, if you are a lawyer working in The Luzerne County District Attorneys Office, how the fuck do you have the fucking balls to even go into work every day when :

1. You ALLOWED a fucking child molester to openly operate a gay porn production studio out of his fucking basement in a residential community; and

2. You sat back and watched children being sold into confinement by A Fucking Racketeering Enterprise.

Harlow Cuadra Last Man Standing

February 26, 2010 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

While testifying before the commission, Chief Public Defender Basil Russin admitted that an assistant public defender expressed concerns to him about juveniles appearing before Ciavarella without attorneys.

“I said, we’re not going to seek clients. And we don’t have the time or the manpower to intervene,” Russin said. Citizensvoice

As I understand The Doctrine of Attorneys being Officers of the Court, The Public Defender was REQUIRED to intervene when presented with evidence that Juveniles before Ciavarella were being denied legal representation at the risk of being disbarred.

There is now LITERALLY no one associated with the prosecution of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes who hasn’t been tainted by scandal.

What we have in Luzerne County is a constitutional crisis, a constitutional question of when is the judicial system so crippled by corruption that it literally cannot perform the function it has been constitutionally assigned? How the fuck can it be possible for anyone to have obtained a fair and impartial trial when every level of the judicial system is Luzerne County is SUSPECT? Not only should Harlow Cuadra’s conviction be thrown out and Joseph Kerekes’ guilty plea be thrown out but, every one convicted of a crime in Luzerne County should have their convictions thrown out.

Anybody who thinks Harlow Cuadra’s conviction was proper should pray to God that they are never before a court system like the one Cuadra faced in Luzerne County.

The Luzerne County Public Defender Basil Russin is being investigated because he received an additional $26,730 in compensation on top of his salary of $52,178.24. Luzerne County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban wants Public Defender Basil Russin fired.

Luzerne County DA Harlow Cuadra Book

February 16, 2010 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Harlow Cuadra is one of the Young Bucks in Heat. See also “Major Hardon” and “Boy Splatter

IN GENERAL, with high profile murder trials, it is usually the winning DA who writes the book and milks the conviction to fame and fortune. Giuliani’s fame started with his successful prosecution of Leona Helmsley. So,

Why hasn’t the Luzerne County DA written its book on The Bryan Kocis Murder Trial?

Perhaps the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office is too busy pleading IGNORANCE as their defense to why they did nothing while Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarelli run The Luzerne County Court system, according to the US Attorney, like a racketeering enterprise.

Again, we raise this very obvious question, how can one get a fair trial from a racketeering enterprise?

Since Judges Conahan and Ciavarella both made legal rulings in the prosecutions of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes

How can it be argued that a Racketeering Enterprise Accorded Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes due process of law and a fair trial?

If Conahan and Ciavarella are convicted, it seems to us that, every criminal case Conahan and Ciavarelli participated in will be, at the very least, up for review. And then, of course,

The Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office still has not addressed how it allowed Bryan Kocis to operate a Gay Porn Production Studio out of the basement of a residential house.

Bryan Kocis and The Luzerne County DA’s Office

December 26, 2009 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Harlow Cuadra
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.

Another Day Another Guilty Plea in Luzerne County

December 18, 2009 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Harlow Cuadra
The people pimping The Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas’ role in prosecuting Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes might just want to lookup the legal definition of A Racketeering Enterprise under the Federal RICO Statute. Former Luzerne County Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella are being prosecuted by the US Attorney under federal RICO and they are charged with turning the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas into a Racketeering Enterprise. It goes without saying that aiding and abetting a Racketeering Enterprise has to also be a criminal offense. Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella are ON RECORD making pre-trial decisions in the prosecutions of Cuadra and Kerekes.

Another day another guilty plea out of Luzerne County. Up for a guilty plea this time around is Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak. Skrepenak was quoted saying that he didn’t think he had done anything wrong but that The US Attorney showed him how his actions constituted a criminal offense.

Luzerne County DA Added to Lawsuit against Judges
Musto Carroll and Lupas testified before the commission in November that the district attorney’s office did not train its ADAs who appeared in juvenile court as to juvenile court rules, juvenile court procedures or the special duties of a prosecutor, the motion contends.

in re Tired Ass Peter Paul Olszewski. Where the appeals court might have simply remanded Harlow Cuadra’s case back to Olszewski on a “minor” legal point, The Appeals Court now is more likely to simply Throw Out Cuadra’s Conviction altogether because the original trial judge is history.

As we’ve said many times before, Harlow Cuadra AND Joseph Kerekes are Gonna Walk, along with almost everyon else convicted of crimes in Luzerne County while Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella were in control of The Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.

Harlow Cuadra and Justice from A Racketeering Enterprise

November 24, 2009 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Earlier this month, the state Supreme Court overturned a $3.5 million civil judgment in the county, based partly on allegations that the case’s assignment to one of the indicted judges was rigged. In a superseding indictment filed against the two former judges in September, the Luzerne County Common Pleas Court was even described as a criminal enterprise under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. More is yet to come as the U.S. Attorney’s Office and a team of FBI agents continue an intensive probe. Philly.com

The above quote is from an opinion at Philly.com by former federal prosecutor Peter Vaira in which he advocates for The Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas being turned over to a Trusteeship.

How do you get Justice from a Criminal Racketeering Enterpise? THE ANSWER is that you don’t. There is no way that any SANE group of Judges on an appellate court could examine any criminal conviction that came out of Luzerne County and conclude that, in spite of the wide spread unchecked corruption in Luzerne County, that ANYONE could have obtained a fair trail before a fair and impartial tribunal.

With respect to Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes:

1. The Lawyers in Luzerne County’s Conflict Counsel Pool who were assigned to represent Cuadra and Kerekes were either unilaterally appointed by Judge Michael Conahan or Judge Mark Ciavarella. Both Conahan and Ciavarella have been charged in Federal Court with operating a racketeering enterprise.

2. Judges Conahan and Ciavarella were the President Judges during the prosecutions of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes and they made decisions on what attorneys would be assigned to represent Cuadra and Kerekes as well as administrative decisions on evidence and the scheduling of discovery and trials for Cuadra and Kerekes.

3. Attorney Al Flora, Jr, the second in command of Luzerne County Public Defender’s Office, represented Bryan Kocis’ Family prior to the Luzerne County Public Defender’s Office being assigned to represent Cuadra.

4. The Luzerne County DA’s Office was a party to Bryan Kocis 2002 Guilty Plea, the correction to that guilty plea AND, The Luzerne County DA’s Office was the Prosecuting party in the Kids-for-Cash Scandal.

Clearly, the people who sided with Luzerne County, Judge Olszewski and The Luzerne County DA’s Office picked The Wrong Horse.

Harlow Cuadra Judge DENIED Retention

November 4, 2009 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Luzerne County Voters to PPO: Get the Fuck Outta Here!</center>
Peter Paul Olszewski , The Judge who presided over Harlow Cuadra’s Murder Trial was DENIED retention and, sure as fucking hell Olszewski won’t be blessing the world with his fucked legal skills during Harlow’s Second Trial.

<center> PPO Oh, Gotta GO GO!</center>
The simple question we presented to the world about Harlow Cuadra was this: If the evidence against Harlow Cuadra so obviously proved Cuadra’s guilt, WHY ALL THE FUCKING BULLSHIT? Why go through all of this shit to deny the guy money to afford a good lawyer if the evidence clearly proved the guy guilty? ANSWER? I am going to answer this question I posed …

The purpose of Harlow Cuadra’s trial and the purpose in denial Harlow Caudra good legal representation was To supress the Luzerne County DA’s Involvement in allowing Bryan Kocis to operate a Little Basement Gay Porn Studio. It is documented that The Luzerne County DA returned video equipment to Bryan Kocis AFTER Kocis was caught having sex with a 15 year old boy. And,

As we pointed out before and during Cuadra’s trial, The Luzerne County DA’s Past Involvement with Bryan Kocis SHOULD HAVE resulted in The Luzerne County DA recusing itself from BOTH: ( 1 ) The Bryan Kocis Murder Investigation; AND, ( 2 ) the Prosecutions of Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes.

Whether some localities choose to prosecute adult video producers or not, the fact remains that producing porn is illegal everywhere in the US EXCEPT in The State of California where the production of adult material has been de-criminalized.

<center>Congrats to Harlow Cuadra, Joseph Kerekes and their families. We are looking Forward to New Trials before A NEW JUDGE for Both Cuadra and Kerekes</center>

Now, that Peter Paul Olszewski will have a lot of fucking time on his hands, maybe he can go back to law school and learn something about law. As we pointed out here before, In order for Olszewski to claim that Demetrius Fannick had a conflict of interest in representing Cuadra, Olszewski had to RE-DEFINE the definition of an attorney / client relationship in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Maybe it’s just me but, I don’t think an ex-Judge‘s attempt to redefine the definition of an attorney / client relationship for the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is going to be upheld by the Court of Appeals in PA.

Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella Judicial Immunity

October 30, 2009 in Freak Show Trial by Freak-Show-Trial

Harlow Cuadra

And that’s what’s happening, it seems, to plaintiffs in two federal lawsuits brought against Luzerne County Court judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan (pictured). As loyal LBers will recall, the judges were accused of participating in a kickback scheme similar to the one described above. They’ve been prosecuted criminally, but, according to this story in the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader, might well escape civil liability. (On the criminal front, they first entered guilty pleas, but later withdrew them.) Click here, here and here for earlier LB posts about the situation. WSJ

If judges made it too easy for people to sue Judges, more people would be suing Judges. About the only thing you can accomplish by suing a Judges is to force the fucker to disqualify himself from your case. That’s about it.
