“We’re here because she is famous and Mr. Rinaldi had the audacity to try to be a friendly neighbor,” he said. “Because this case involves a celebrity this case didn’t disappear in the way that it should have. Because of her it feels a bit different than an ordinary case. There’s been press; there’s been buzz. This is a case that was sort of made in Hollywood.”
It's taken almost a year to prove our case, and we did it. Through court transcripts we've identified (and proven) close to 18 counts of perjury and the subornation of perjury. Not only will I be vindicated but we're seeking criminal charges against the ADA, and all those who abused the criminal justice system as their own private security.
Why? When Kelly lived with me in NY, I cleared out a bed-room for her so she could move in. In my making room for her, I stored many of my belongings- an entire room in fact. When it came time to reclaim my items, the person who stored my belongings wouldn't return them. And as a result, I had to file a police report for insurance purposes. The police contacted the thief where he then out of spite wrote a series of scathing reports on a consumer web site called RipOff Report. In these reports, Michael Levine accused me of running a fake charity, and stated that I was a child molester. What better way to discredit a child advocate, right? Thanks to Detective Arroyo in the NYPD Cyber Crimes unit, and Detective Thomas in the NYPD Police Commissioner's office we proved these reports false- obviously. Michael Levine was given the opportunity to redact the reports or he'd be held accountable. He redacted. We thought we were in the clear, but we weren't. For the record, reports cannot be taken off the site so a redaction was really the only option. We thought we'd be an example of cyber bullying and could use our situation to teach kids that cyber bullying doesn't have to define you in the hopes of trying to prevent bullying induced suicide- we were wrong. Cyber bullying does define you.
When Ms. Shields filed her complaint (after I kindly offered her my parking spot...) the officer that took the report later testified in court that Brooke didn't want any harm to come to me and that she didn't want me arrested. After the report was made, the detectives googled me and found these 'cyber bullying' Ripoff Reports and believed them. They built the case up from there.
For two years, I had been offered a disorderly conduct because they had no case. When I wouldn't be bullied into lying in court to get away with something I didn't do, the prosecutor and Ms. Shields conspired to commit perjury to win.
“We’re here because she is famous and Mr. Rinaldi had the audacity to try to be a friendly neighbor,” he said. “Because this case involves a celebrity this case didn’t disappear in the way that it should have. Because of her it feels a bit different than an ordinary case. There’s been press; there’s been buzz. This is a case that was sort of made in Hollywood.” Attorney Jon Stonbely closed in court.
Prosecutor Anjelica Gregory argued, “If you apply these facts to an everyday person this case would be terrifying.”
Well, this isn't true either. All along we've acted with Newtown's best interest at heart and as we have acted similarly with several other more well known neighbors that have embraced us and pledged their support to Newtown, and our proposed CenTer that was approved on 5 April 2016. From Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore, Ricky Martin, Liv Tyler, Dr. Oz, and Anderson Cooper to name a few we were all set to tackle the issue of #STOPGunSchoolViolence. And yes, we have provided letters and pictures as proof. So, my proving conspiracy to commit perjury isn't a he said, she said. It's actual by physical proof that all came from the prosecution. Incidentally, not only do we have corresponding celebrity support, but we also have a dozen or so parents from Sandy Hook victims as well as several Newtown, CT town officials. Not to mention our financial support from one of the most esteemed philanthropists.
Our Sandy Hook CenTer will continue as planned, and all our financial compensation will be donated to Newtown, and the legitimate victims.
The prosecutor Angelica Gregory is accused of subornation of perjury and the NY Attorney Generals office is taking these accusations seriously and has promised us justice. The NY States Attorney's office is investigating as well as the NY State's BAR. We are more than confident that justice will prevail. And the actual criminals will be held accountable.
It's ironic. We were falsely accused of a crime, and the very people who took an oath to preserve justice have become the actual criminals.
