Additional vital background here. Click the picture below to obtain the entire deposition of Grand Isle Police Chief Euris Dubois:
I’m speeding to eight years on this endeavor called Slabbed and we all have seen some of the worst humanity in this area has to offer. The ongoing five year saga of Captain Jay Dantin, the child molestation allegations that dog him along with the accusations that Grand Isle Mayor Carmadelle and Police Chief Dubois tried to cover up the alleged crime ranks as some of the worst in my opinion. Once again Slabbed has been right there literally from the time this story broke as the kneecapped criminal prosecution of Dantin through yesterday’s PACER filings, which contained a plaintiff’s filing with multiple bombshells including a transcript of Mayor Carmadelle’s deposition, which was done on video. What I am going to highlight is the unsworn declaration of the Grand Isle police officer that arrested Dantin way back when the crime was alleged to have been perpetrated in 2010 right at the time of the BP Gulf Oil Catastrophe. It is devastating to both Dubois and Carmadelle:
Paul Purpura has a must read for those that want to catch up. Other vital background can be found here.
The mayor and the mother then were allowed to be in the room when Dubois questioned Dantin. When Dantin began to confess, Dubois was unable to find an operable voice recorder, and his assistant was unable to take notes, according to the lawsuit.
Camardelle, meanwhile, “was crying hysterically and uncontrollably, at times lying on the floor,” according to the lawsuit. Camardelle at one point thought he was having a heart attack. He was not. The mother’s lawyers accuse Camardelle of intentionally disrupting the confession.
Dantin was arrested. But the mother, questioning the slow pace of the investigation, said prosecutors repeatedly asked for the investigative reports from Grand Isle police, to no avail.
Welp folks, the Dantin criminal prosecution appears at an end as Jerry “Captain Jay” Dantin skates facing justice on the sexual molestation allegations that have dogged him for the past few years. As Paul Purpura points out in his piece on this topic from a few days back and as Slabbed pointed out very early on, Captain Jay is romantically linked to Grand Isle Mayor David Carmadelle’s mother and is the long time friend of Grand Isle Police Chief Euris Dubois.
There are still outstanding allegations Dubois intentionally botched the police investigation into his friend precisely to keep him out of the pokey thus the civil suit Doe v Dantin et al has muckraking potential so stay tuned.
However, one thing I’ve learned in my 5 plus years doing Slabbed is there is not a shortage of perverted old “skeeters” so today’s Donna Harris story on a 79 year old from Biloxi that traveled to Slidell to masturbate in the women’s clothing section at one of the stores in the Slidell Mall is thus full of potential.
At this point there are a few ways I could take the balance of this post. For instance, I noted the Sun Herald has closed their story to reader comments which I view as a terribly misinformed action so this could be an examination of the media piece. For instance I maintain the “noisemakers” can say what they want about the Newhouse House, Continue reading “From the perverted skeeting old geezer files: Out with one and in with another”
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — A blistering report that claims Joe Paterno and other top Penn State officials concealed what they knew about Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of children may prove to be an indelible stain on the beloved coach’s 61-year tenure at the school where he preached “success with honor.”
Paterno’s supporters are legion, though, and some insist the late coach got a raw deal from former FBI Director Louis Freeh, whose 267-page report on the Sandusky scandal Thursday asserted that Paterno and senior Penn State officials made a decision to protect Sandusky to avoid damaging the image of the school and its powerful football program.
Ooops wrong coverup folks, sorry. Let me try again:
A Jefferson Parish judge ruled Wednesday that a politically connected Grand Isle man is mentally competent to stand trial on charges of inappropriately touching a young boy. The judge dismissed doctors’ findings that the elderly defendant’s memory lapses will adversely affect his ability to assist his defense attorney.
“I walk out of this courtroom every day,” 24th Judicial District Court Judge Steve Windhorst said. “I forget things on the bench every day.”
That means Jerry Dantin, 77, will stand trial a third time next month for sexual battery. Authorities allege he had a 6-year-old boy apply lotion to his genital area while in a shrimp boat berthed at Grand Isle in early 2010. Two Jefferson Parish juries have been unable to reach verdicts in the case during the past year, leading to two mistrials.
OK folks I’ll let you in on a little secret. Cap’n Jay can’t take a shit without someone in the greater Slabbed Nation knowing thus my remarks back in May about the old geezer drinking the days away in a local bar as we continue: Continue reading “Paul Purpura updates the Dantin Molestation case”
We’ve covered this story since the early days folks but for you newbies and those catching up Paul Purpura at the Times Picayune checked in with a case update yesterday afternoon that also has a good synopsis of the events to date. The bottom line is a 6-year-old boy claims he was molested by Dantin, who dates Mayor Carmadelle’s momma on the side and has not yet received justice, in part because police chief Euris Dubois, a long time friend of Dantin appears to have botched the investigation.
File this one under too inbred.
Grand Isle’s favorite perverted geezer has problems beyond his upcoming criminal retrial for molesting a 5-year-old boy because the problems associated with the inside fix Euris Dubois at the Grand Isle PD tried to put in on Dantin’s behalf is coming into much sharper focus. You see folks Dantin confessed to his crimes in front of Dubois and step son David Carmadelle last year but Dubois’ story that the department’s tape recorder did not work and that his secretary is functionally illiterate thus unable to take notes keeps getting curiousier and curiousier. I personally can’t wait to hear why Mayor Carmadelle fell out that day requiring an ambulance but that factoid will come another day while we visit with Paul Purpura’s Times Picayune story on Judge Zainey allowing the suit to continue as Team Dantin’s lost a big round of procedural motions in the related civil suit against Dantin, Dubois, Carmadelle and the Town of Grand Isle.
Our own Patricia has been questioning the wisdom of parents taking children to Grand Isle in light of the events that have thus far unfolded in the Dantin saga and the one involving Dantin’s buddy Patrick Walsh who also appears to like his sex very young. If it was me I’d keep my kids close on Grand Isle because it is also clear you can’t trust law enforcement on Grand Isle to do anything other than botch the investigation, as it strongly appears they purposely did in the case of Mayor Caramdelle’s step dad.
Folks the bottom line here is all Jerry Dantin’s lawyer Robert Toale had to defend his client was to attack the victim and his Momma because despite Grand Isle Police Chief Euris Dubois’ best efforts to fuck this case up from the start, the jury still came within one vote of sending the perv up to Angola for the rest of his life. Even the prosecution acknowledged the obvious per Paul Purpura’s story on the topic straight from the Gretna courthouse:
Assistant District Attorney Jerry Smith did not sugarcoat what appeared to happen in Dubois’ office, saying in closing argument that Dubois and Camardelle believed Dantin over the boy’s mother, and that by gathering in the chief’s office, “they knew they could smooth this over.”
“What happens on the island stays on the island,” Smith said.
In previous posts on this topic I wrote that Slabbed was keeping its editorial mind open to the fact that DA Paul Connick’s office was half-assing the prosecution of Dantin, who is politically connected through Grand Isle Mayor David Carmadelle and his long standing friendship with police chief Euris Dubois. I think Paul’s report makes it clear ADA Jerry Smith pursued this case, purposely flawed at the investigative stage IMHO, as aggressively as he could given what he had to work with. Paul Connick and his office gets lots of well deserved criticism here on Slabbed but in this instance they get props for prosecuting this case despite the political heat applied to Connick by a certain west bank crooked politico whose initials are John Alario.
I have a fair amount of material accumulated that is tangentially related to the Dantin case that will be rollled out while we await a new trial date.
Folks I have some stuff in the pipeline on the subject of Grand Isle Government but there is one problem on the island that reminded me of a famous South Park episode from season 2, Chicken Lover. Now that particular episode had a little something for everyone in the Slabbed Nation from Ayn Rand to certain unspeakable sex crimes. So while I develop the material here is a teaser in a video post of certain of the problems in State v Dantin. First is the simulated crime:
and now one of the problems Continue reading “Houston we have a problem on Grand Isle…..”
