Day Three In Rogue Cops Case Without A Verdict

By Ralph Cipriano
for Bigtrial.net

The jury in the rogue cops case spent a third day behind closed doors deliberating the fate of six defendants.

Judge Eduardo C. Robreno received two notes from the jury today.

The first asked to see three trial exhibits: D51, 9J and 9K.

Since the media was not provided with a list of trial exhibits and there is a gag order in the case, it remains a mystery as to what exhibits the jury was asking for.

The second note asked the judge if the jury could leave at 4:30 p.m. It was a request granted by the judge without requiring the jury to file into court seeking to be dismissed. The judge requested that the court clerk remind the jury of his instructions not to discuss the case or view media accounts.

The judge also announced that the lawyers in the case -- two prosecutors and six defense lawyers -- didn't have to continue to stake out the courtroom awaiting a verdict. A clerk was instructed to collect phone numbers. The judge told the lawyers to stay at locations no more than ten minutes away from the courthouse.

Deliberations are scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

  3. Your Nuts 9:22--Each day that goes by looks more like guilty? even if you gave each defendant their own day for the jury to go through the charges against that individual that's 6 days. Not so fast with the Guilty verdict just because it's been a few days- remember theirs 6 men on trial here not One and a whole lot of SHIT to sort through.
    Still coming out of this with a not guilty verdict boys. Keep your heads up.

  4. Let's hope the Feds didn't screw this up too bad. I would hate to see this guys profit off this by getting a not guilty.

  5. The worst charge for these 6 is the Rico count. They beat that alot of other charges are mute. In my opinion i am sure some higher ups in the narc unit are sweeting the verdict out for fear on someone flipping n turning on them to the feds. For most of these 6 convicted on most of the charges including rico is basically a life sentence sent to the other side of the country for a 30 year bid.

  12. Impossible for all 6 to get off on all charges.I know of 5 lawyers who wrote letters to the city and state officials about this narc squad.Pertaining to illegal searches,stealing and falsifying police reports.If there was nothing there to investigate,the narcs would have not been under investigation for so many years PERIOD

  13. Amazingly, these alleged "letters" were not presented as evidence by the prosecution. I'm sure you know five lawyers that did this though. Psh.

  16. Im not a cop or a criminal, just a long time resident of Roxborugh n found this site while looking for news on a verdict. It's very informative. It seems a lot of info wasn't presented by the Feds and maybe someone who is more knowledgable could tell me why. If the Rolex was stolen, why didn't the Feds produce the paperwork to prove ownership? Rolex has serial numbers and the same with the van that was supposed to be sold. These items are easily traceable. Also, why weren't the officers financial records brought in. I would think that would be important. I don't think all these officers were stealing but as a resident of Roxborough (which is a very close knit community kinda like Mayberry) I have heard stories for many many years from cops and residents about Tommy L. I don't think he is all bad bc he has arrested some people who I had no idea were drug dealers. Makes u think who are your neighbors really but the cases always get tossed. It seems he has some strange choices in his friends, though. Tommy L. and his wife spend are very close with the Kingkiners, who are drug dealers in the Roxborough area. The kingkiner father and son have both been convicted of crimes involving drugs as recently as 2006 or 07. Also, the have business ventures together with a cheerleading gym. Why would someone who is a special Narcotics officer associate with someone like that? It would seem that being close friends with Elmer would be against some type of police policy. As residents, our issues are that the 5th won't touch the dealers anymore bc they all have lawsuits against the city. I am not able to believe that all these cops are 100% guilty or were involved in stealing. The dealers all talk to each other and saw the weakness of the unit bc of Toms friendship and Walkers arrest. I have neighbors who are cops and all say that most of these guys are great cops and are admired by many. They also have complained about tom n Walker for many years before the media started putting out articles so I know they are not just loyal to their coworkers so I believe their opinions. Above all, deep down I think most of the 6 were trying to do good by removing these dealers from the streets n are more what they call guilty by association bc of tom n walkers actions. Sometimes, we don't always see all aspects of a situation til after n maybe that's what happened to the rest of the squad. They may not have realized that their Intel was coming from a dealer/friend of a coworker. Things may have not been transparent as they should have for the officers while handling these jobs.

  18. Not Guilty or possibly a hung jury, no way in hell can they convict guilty with the lack of evidence. And for the bitch who posted at 6:41am, O'Malley went out IOD July 2009 and John Speiser never went to that squad until 2010 so stop spreading bad information and count your blessings you are not indicted

  19. Anything yet George or Ralph?

  20. Doesn't look at all like one or a few jurers are hung on anything. All questions from the jury are going in order of the counts so they are truly just going over everything one last time before making their decision. There was a lot of bullshit to sort through so its going to take awhile. Good luck gentlemen...we are praying for you!!

  21. A few people will be sure you go down with the rest if your squad next time if hung

  22. Im a ex con and ex dope dealer. Listen...tom got me and ruffed me up some too. But i got me freedom back when the judge set me free because of tom and his crew. Hey, my freedom is enough for me. Money dont matter when you lost your freedom. My point is i was in the street making money committing crime and they got me...in aloy of dirty ways they got me and i dont agree with tommys methods but thats for the law abiding citizen to judge. I will say this....LET THEM NARCS GO!!! I DONT WISH PRISON ON MY WORST ENEMY NOT THAT I HAVE ANY OF THE SORT. Im not a fan of cops but what can i say? I just dont like to see people in prison even if its dirty cops! Rapist yeah...molesters hell YES!!! Thats all i have to say and i really dont care either way cause i have my freedom and im not committing crimes anymore.

  27. Per Inquirer web site - the jury told judge this afternoon that they were at an impasse on one or more charges. Judge instructed the jury to continue to deliberate

    I am sure Ralph will have more details later this evening.
