Turtlegram: The city will pay $2.1 million to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Police Department and the officers accused of coercing a confession from a young mother charged in 2008 with suffocating her 13-month-old son. The criminal case against Nga Truong, who was 16 at the time of the child’s death, was dropped in 2011 after a judge suppressed Ms. Truong’s statements to police. Ms. Truong sued the city in 2012.
“All parties are prohibited from commenting beyond confirming that the case has been settled, as per the terms of the settlement agreement,” the statement said. Ms. Truong’s lawyer, Edward P. Ryan Jr., could not immediately be reached Thursday afternoon.
Ms. Truong was arrested in December 2008 in connection with the death of her son Khyle in the family’s home on Henderson Avenue. Police said at the time that Ms. Truong initially told investigators she found her son unconscious in his crib, but later admitted that she suffocated the baby with a teddy bear.
From the outset Mr. Ryan, who also represented Ms. Truong in her criminal case, said he had concerns about how his client was interviewed by police. Police disagreed at the time, but in February 2011 a judge ordered her confession suppressed. Judge Janet Kenton-Walker said in her decision that Detectives Kevin Pageau and John Doherty resorted to “deception regarding medical evidence” and continually told the teen “that she was just a juvenile and if she would admit what she did she would remain in the juvenile court where she would get help.”
The judge in the 2011 ruling found that the detectives did not offer Ms. Truong a “genuine opportunity,” as required by law, to consult with a parent, interested adult or lawyer about her right to remain silent before she agreed to speak with police. Ms. Truong was held without bail at the Chicopee Women’s Correctional Center until the charges against her were dismissed in August 2011.
In Massachusetts we not only release double murderers back into society, we pay them $2.1 million for the inconvenience of getting you to confess. That’s what just happened here. It’s enraging on so many levels. First of all, guess who the judge was:
Yup, Janet Kenton- “let you walk” -Walker. The same judge who just a few weeks ago wouldn’t allow indisputable evidence against Chad Easter to be presented at his trial, and consequently he got away with an armed home invasion and a double homicide.
And back in February at the trial of Lonzo Guthrie for the brutal unsolved murder of Eileen Ferro, she would not allow the prosecution to mention the fact that shortly after murdering Mrs. Ferro, Lonzo was convicted of a vicious rape at knifepoint. He tried to kill her by stabbing her, the same exact way Eileen Ferro died. Kenton-Walker wouldn’t allow this information at trial and thus the jury never heard it and the killer walked.
So if you’re keeping track at home, this is three murderers that Kenton-Walker has released back into society. Another overpaid hack judge who cares more about criminals than she does about victims.
Then there’s Nga Truong’s lawyer, Ed Ryan. Guess who he is currently working for?
Yup, Smashley Losapiho. The woman who is STILL dating cop killer Jorge Zambrano’s brother, Giancarlo. Here are the lovebirds at a recent social gathering.
As you can see, Smashley has seen better days. Ed Ryan sure can pick some winners for clients. Anything for that payday though.
Anyway, this is so insane. The girl was 17 years old when she confessed to killing not only her own 13 month old baby, but another baby before that. This made her a legal adult. Oh yea, and she told cops she was 19, but I guess they should’ve assumed she was lying. She’s not brain dead. She did not have to confess to a crime if she didn’t do it.
The tactics used by detectives were standard protocol – ask leading questions to coerce a confession they can use at trial. For instance, they asked her, “what did you smother her with.” Someone who hadn’t recently killed a baby would probably say, “I didn’t smother him you idiots.” But instead she said, “a teddy bear.” That’s quite a wild imagination from someone who was allegedly being forced into a confession by two cops who were talking to her calmly in an interrogation room.
The cops didn’t go into the confession trying to find “the real killers” because they knew from their 25 years of experience that the real killer was sitting in front of them. They wanted to get a confession quickly before she exercised her Miranda rights and she was dumb enough to give it to them. She is a murderer. Case closed.
But the shadiest part about this is that her lawyer Ed Ryan LET this happen. He did not even ask the judge to suppress the confession until after she sat in jail for three years. By doing so he was building up a case for false imprisonment and thus a bigger payday in the long run. And it worked out perfectly. But if he had a conscience he would’ve asked to suppress the evidence the day after she was arrested. Instead he let her rot in jail because it financially benefitted him.
Just watch this video, especially the way she act when she talks about her baby around the 2:30 mark:
I’m not a cop, but I know a murderer when I see one. And she didn’t shed a tear. She didn’t even seem to have the least bit of emotion. No loving mother could sit through an interview like that without crying.
Anyway, she’s living the glamorous life on her Facebook page now:
And she’s posting baby memes that Turtleboy can’t read:
This is everything that is wrong with our judicial system today. Maggot lawyers like Ed Ryan make bank off the backs of murderers. The ACLU picks up the tab for the biggest possible scumbags they can find because they are an organization that only exists because they hate the police. And judges like Janet Kenton-Walker go out of their way to make sure these murderers are never, ever held responsible for their crimes. This is why people like Jorge Zambrano are walking the streets today.
