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:
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:
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.
The trial has started and Fox 8 has some coverage:
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.
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.
