With the events of this past week here on the coast….

Given the stunning events here on the Coast this week one would naturally think that one of the recent posts on the Singing River disaster or the William Martin indictment would be the major site traffic generator this week here on Slabbed but that is not the case. Simply put when one media outlet leaves the rest eating dust on a topic, said media outlet gets massive amounts of site traffic even if the latest twist is not highlighted.

So what in the heck am I talking about? The sentencing of lusty lawyer gone wild Jennifer Gaubert earlier this week in New Orleans:

Wrist-slap for New Orleans attorney caught on video in steamy encounter with cabbie ~ Lee Moran, New York Daily News

This particular post from last month got quite the workout in fact and so did this one.

The Slabbed New Media posts on the topic actually went viral in Australia. Its nuts but once again the old adage sex sells bears itself out in spades. As for Gaubert, she indicated in published reports that her conviction will be appealed.  As for Slabbed:

And once again it was Slabbed’s community of crack internet sleuths that signaled the prosecution may have a problem 9 months ago:

His parting comment, which I saw/heard in an unedited version of the video, changes what I thought happened here. Also, a comment on nola, from someone who seems to know, says the cab ride was 1.5 hours long. The cabbie also makes a comment about how he is going to get in trouble. Are they both in the wrong?

However, Gaubert’s attorneys say a new witness has come forward who can testify that Gaubert and the cab driver engaged in consensual sex prior to the recording. Defense attorneys say they have notified prosecutors that the new witness, a sheriff’s deputy, will cast doubt on Ferrell’s story, setting the stage for possible perjury.

Update:

The trial has started and Fox 8 has some coverage:

I am getting updates from both the NOLA lawyer gossip network and Rob Masson via twitter. Friday afternoon is a great time for a criminal trial. 😉

Because he is a faithful man: Hervey Farrell sues the City of New Orleans and former radio show host Jennifer Gaubert

Folks there was one media outlet that called the case of the lusty radio show host and cabbie from the jump and that would be Slabbed New Media and we even have the victory lap to show for it. After that victory lap I was given further information on lusty lawyer Jenn Gaubert that, if published, could possibly cause heart attack problems in certain older readers, especially the uninitiated so I kept the level of salaciousness to a bare minimum.

Since then I’ve been quietly following the related criminal cases against Gaubert as they wind their way through the criminal justice system but the bottom line is Ms. Gaubert is a woman with an itch to scratch, albeit one accompanied with a mean streak. I mention all this because late last week courthouse news posted the suit that Cabbie Hervey Farrell filed against Gaubert and the City of New Orleans and now we have a wonderful first hand description of the itch scratching methods applied by Gaubert.

Even better, with the municipal criminal battery case now complete John Simmerman nabbed the following video of a portion of the incident to go along with his report on Farrell’s lawsuit.  The video is frankly a must see but I will caution Gaubert flashes her panties while propositioning Farrell thus if you are on heart medication or suffer from untreatable erectile dysfunction viewer discretion is advised: Continue reading “Because he is a faithful man: Hervey Farrell sues the City of New Orleans and former radio show host Jennifer Gaubert”

A cabbies dream turned nightmare: I bet Jenn’s ears were burning last night

Details are trickling in on the now infamous cell phone video shot by cabbie Hervey Farrell in the case of the cab ride gone bad. I am not at liberty to disclose any details but this post on a Facebook video of Jennifer Gaubert singing for free cab fare (video since deleted) is instructive. Stay tuned as I’m gonna do my level best to nab the Farrell video for everyone to see.

Vital background here, here and here.

She declined to discuss the case Monday, referring questions to her attorney, Buddy Spell, who said that “a comment at this juncture would be premature.”

Like I said, enlarged libidos

It goes without saying the post I did unmasking a local early Sunday morning radio show host that no one had heard of as the party girl in the sordid tale of the convoluted cab ride has been a smash hit. I want to make certain everyone understands I am not a lawyer but in the course of doing Slabbed and knowing a few through time my non scientific observations has been:

the legal profession contains a high concentration of folks with enlarged libidos.

I want to make sure everyone understand there is nothing wrong with that and such is not a trait exclusive to the legal profession as Miss Kay over on Duck Dynasty will attest. Plus it insures we reproduce as a species. In any event Elie Mystal over at Above the Law had a different take on the Jenn in the Sunday Mornings saga but before we get to that we have more of that legendary lawyerly libido on display:

I myself have a bit of minor notoriety, and I also like alcohol. I’ve woken up with no shoes, no pants, and no memory of how I got home

Indeed most have worn the lampshade at one time or another but this case is not about date rape at all. In fact I hear the cabbie has his own version of events and a video to back up some of his claims. That appears to be lost in the zeal to try and convict the Cabbie in the media solely from the word of an “anonymous” accuser that by her own admission was sloppy drunk and evidently looking for some action with a stranger on the way home after a hard night of drinking.

Sorry folks, color me a skeptic but I do not buy into holding Cab Drivers to a higher standard than that of the legal profession. And thanks to a confluence of media outlets confusing a sloppy drunk looking for some action with a cab driver with a sex crime and extortion, site traffic here is likely to remain greatly elevated. :mrgreen:

Talk about trying to hide your identity. Have the sleuths on slabbed figure out who this 32 year old “single mother, lawyer and the host of a local radio show” is?

Taxi driver shoots lewd video of customer in cab, then tries extortion, cops say ~ Helen Freund

And of course in the local legal community it has to have a sex, drugs ‘n” rock and roll component:

According to the woman’s account, she had been out with friends celebrating at Galatoires earlier that evening and was intoxicated by the time she got into a cab on Bourbon Street. The cab driver began driving her home, during which time she admittedly flirted with him and kissed him, but said she never gave him permission to do what he did next.

At some point during the ride, Farrell pulled over, she said, took out his cellphone and began taping her. She said she was in no state to be aware of how exposed she was; in fact, she said, she was unaware that he was filming anything at all.

“I was confused, and I touched his arm and asked him what happened, why he had stopped kissing me,” she said. At that point, the woman said, Ferrell got visibly upset and exclaimed that he had not kissed her, and that he was a “loving and devoted boyfriend.”

Of course since drunken nudity is involved one of the parties to the party gets a pass and like the continuing mystery of the Tranny and politically connected NOLA JD Mystery John it falls to Slabbed to solve this mystery since the the lady involved is a “single mother, lawyer and the host of a local radio show”. Hmmmm, lets look at a lovely video while Slabbed thinks about those clues: Continue reading “Slabbed solves the mystery of the lusty lawyer and perverted cabbie (Updated)”
