And here is today’s local news roundup. We start with the legendary boozing constable, Tony Thomassie, who is harmless enough, except for the boozing while on tower and long rumored badge selling:
Next up things are not looking too good for the home team:
Bankruptcy trustee seeks sale of Brennan’s name, assets ~ Jaquetta White
Turns out that like Slabbed, Gordon Russell, John Simerman and company rake their muck the old fashioned way:
So this was, in reality, a fishing expedition for a reporter’s sources. Gordon and John actually visited the FBI over on Leon C. Simon and signed into the official log documenting they were there, a truly cloak and dagger action if I ever saw one. These guys do not need me to tell them how to best meet with the FBI but all the Hankton defense team did was reinforce a lesson with me on never meeting with the FBI at the FBI HQ on Leon C. Simon because you have to sign a log when you enter the building. I’m glad to see the G men did not do anything stupid like two certain former US Attorneys.
Moving right along from the victory lap department, we have this on Team Ray Nagin:
Prosecutors torch Ray Nagin’s request for sentencing delay ~ Robert McClendon
Victory lap? Yup:
Lastly, and perhaps most likely to tank the effort for delay, Coman says Jenkins has already blown a deadline for him to lodge objections to the report.
According to procedural rules, the defense had two weeks to file his response, and that deadline passed a week ago without a peep from Jenkins, Coman points out. “Given Nagin’s failure to file any objections to date, the government urges the court to not accept any objections filed after the deadline” Coman says in his response.
I close with the following from the feel good department:
Long Beach cadet gets his ‘goat’ at West Point graduation ~ Kate Magandy
Mayeaux continues a long tradition of SSC alums successfully graduating from one of the Service Academies. Best of Luck to Lt. Mayeaux.
