William Hamel Pleads Guilty To Class A Misdemeanor/Facilitation Of Crime/Pays $300K Fine = Disciplinary Committee Penalties–Or Is It Who You Know?
April 25, 2013 § 12 Comments
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of our Audience,
While Hamel’s attorney was busy negotiating a Plea Bargain with the Attorney General’s Office trying to get his client out of a Felony conviction –(first he tried the route of a motion to dismiss, –which didn’t work),– Mr. Newman, to allegedly avoid more motion practice wrote Judge Barrett the following letter which substantiates Hamel’s Fines of $300,000 apparently in lieu of admitting to the Felonies he was accused of and pleading guilty to a Class A Misdemeanor.
Please read the letter we have posted. We have excerpted some very important lines contained within:
Take a gander at this Dear Readers. In the course Despite being allowed to do so, Mr. Newman still complains that his client, William Hamel by taking this plea bargain, that is, to plead guilty to a Class A Misdemeanor specifically admitting “In 2007 in the Bronx, after an injured patient was accepted as a Personal Injury client, I, (William Hamel), paid an employee of Lincoln Hospital for disclosing patient information to me.”
Then look at Pg 2 below:
“We then received from Assistant Attorney General Jeff Minett an affidavit to be signed by our client which purported to be a plea agreement. That document required a plea by our client to criminal facilitation, with an onerous allocution. We responded by referring to the earlier § § 479 and 482 cases his office had sent us and the potential disciplinary penalties attendant to them, which we had indicated our client could accept.”–
Dear Readers, it looks like the criminal is dictating to the government!
“As can be seen from all of the above, the exact misdemeanor offense to which our client pleads has important disciplinary consequences for him. The label of the misdemeanor is of no consequence for anybody but our client.”
Oh, Dear Readers, is that so!
When have you heard of somebody paying $300K in Fines–How about never! As we have said, the amount of the Fine, demonstrates the seriousness of the crime. To be continued……
The internet is mightier than the sword.
