Van Pelt convicted on all counts May 19, 2010

Posted by jefhenninger in News.

As I predicted, Van Pelt was convicted on all counts.  I can’t complain too much about the defense lawyers as they were dealt a tough hand.  However, I do have to wonder why they had Van Pelt testify about conversations he had with Marci Hochman only to call Hochman later who denied those conversations!  That just seems really odd.  It really sunk any chance at that point.

However, the Government argued the obvious: there was no contract or any other proof as to what this payment was for.  I really don’t see how you get around that.

Story is here.
