Did you know that judges at Worcester District Courthouse all have street names? Did you know that it’s common practice to try to move cases around the courthouse to get the lenient judges for defendants? We got more on this coming, but just a few examples first. For instance Judge Michael Allard-Madaus is known in the streets as “No house” Madaus. As in, no house of corrections for the lucky defendant. Judge Andrew D’Angelo is is commonly referred to as “Let me go” D’Angelo. And perhaps the most infamous is Judge Janet Kenton-Walker, a Deval Patrick appointee more commonly known to street toughs as “Let you walk” Walker.

The reason we bring this up is because “Let you walk” Walker was in the news again yesterday.

A judge has ruled that there isn’t enough evidence to say that Chad Easter was involved in the murder of two witnesses scheduled to testify against him in a 2013 home invasion case.  Worcester Superior Court Judge Janet Kenton-Walker issued a written ruling Tuesday saying the testimony of Alex Lora and Jessica McKeon could not be used against Easter.

In April, prosecutors filed a motion detailing their belief that Easter had a role in the “execution” of the witnesses against him. Lora and McKeon were gunned down inside their 8 Forbes St. apartment on March 10. The two were victims of a 2013 home invasion, which Easter is set to go to trial for on June 1.

Remember that double homicide on Forbes Street on March 10? Yea, two state’s witnesses were killed. This is the sign of a lawless society that is run by bad guys. When people who have agreed to help prosecute the bad guys get murdered for doing so, you have a very serious problem.

And guess which probation department employee admitted to being a gangster mattress and giving up names and other confidential information to her criminal friends?

Yup. Ashley Losapio. Did she have anything to do with the Forbes Street murder? Who knows? No evidence whatsoever. But the fact of the matter is that there is a known leak working in the probation department who has given up names before to bad people. She was basically not punished at all, so if you were her then why would you stop? You’re untouchable because your Daddy is recently retired Judge Paul Losapio.

Oh yea, and we called Dudley District Court today, and she IS back at work in the probation office despite all of this. Just sayin.

Back to the story at hand:

Prosecutors had been trying to get McKeon’s previous statements admitted to evidence under the “forfeiture by wrongdoing” statute, which says if the suspect procured the unavailability of witnesses through wrongdoing then their statements outside of court can be used.

So let me get this straight. This woman was going to turn state’s witness and provide testimony that would certainly put Chad Easter in jail for an armed home invasion. She told cops and prosecutors that he did it, but before she could say it under oath in a courtroom she gets killed. Now none of that matters because she’s dead? Wow, murder really does pay in “Let you walk” Walker’s courtroom.

https://twitter.com/WorcTelegram/status/738018235136802817

So what’s the evidence that linked Chad Easter to the double homicide on March 10?

“There is no doubt Easter had a strong motive to prevent McKeon from testifying,” Kenton-Walker wrote. “Motive, however, is not proof that Easter shot McKeon or was involved in that shooting.”

Fair enough. But motive does exist. What else you got Mr. Prosecutor?

Detectives testified at a hearing earlier this month that Easter’s rental car was spotted by license plate readers less than three-tenths of a mile from 8 Forbes St. less than an hour before the shooting. 

Kenton-Walker wrote in her ruling that inferring that Easter was in the neighborhood at the time of this shooting was “speculation and assumption.” She noted that there was no proof Easter was driving the car or that it did not turn before Forbes Street.

Wait…..what?? Why is this judge going out of her way to make up excuses for this guy? Shouldn’t a jury be allowed to decide if this evidence makes him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? They have a rental car in Chad Easter’s name a quarter mile from the site of the murder, less than an hour before the murder. Any reasonable person would conclude that it was there to scope out the place and make sure the victims were home. But somehow the indisputable fact that Chad Easter’s rental car was there at that time does not matter because these facts are “speculation and assumption?”

https://twitter.com/WorcTelegram/status/738019189814927361

What planet am I on where facts are “speculation and assumption?” Are you required to be naive in order to become a judge, or do you just have to have a hyphenated last name and kiss Deval Patrick’s ass? And there was no proof that Chad Easter was driving the rental car that was a quarter mile from the murder scene? Ummmmm, the car was rented IN HIS NAME!!!! But yea, there’s hardly enough evidence to bring this to trial.

But wait, there’s more evidence:

The judge also dismissed the evidence presented by prosecutors that Easter called a friend in jail about a “hometown hit” benefitting his case.

“The court listened to the recording many times and, while a few words, including the phrase … “hometown hit” are decipherable, most of the conversation surrounding those phrases is completely unintelligible. To conclude from this evidence that the men are were discussing the shooting of McKeon and Lora is pure speculation and assumption,” Kenton-Walker wrote.

Hold on a second. Chad Easter called a buddy in jail and discussed the benefits of a recent “hometown hit,” which is common street terminology for a murder that benefits the individual talking about the hometown hit. And this doesn’t matter because they were talking in a hushed murmur because they knew the call was recorded? And it’s just “speculation and assumption” that this guy who just benefitted from a double homicide was referring to THAT particular “hometown hit” when he spoke to his inmate friend?” Oh yea, Janet Kenton-Walker is extremely qualified to be protecting society from dangerous criminals.

What about the murder weapon?

Prosecutors also argued that a 9mm handgun was used in both the 2013 home invasion and the murders of Lora and McKeon.

“9mm are not uncommon and this evidence is not proof that Easter is linked to the firearm used to kill McKeon and Lora,” Kenton-Walker wrote.

No, the fact that the same type of gun was used in both crimes is not proof of anything. But it certainly constitutes evidence. And when you put all this evidence together it’s certainly worth finding out if 12 citizens think that it ties Chad Easter to this murder beyond a reasonable doubt.

This is Kenton-Walker’s M.O. In 2012 a jury found a man guilty of attempting to rape a 19 month old. Yes, you read that right – 19 months old. Disgusting. Guess what she gave him for jail time? NOTHING!!!

Then there was that time the Worcester Police Department unleashed a scathing tongue lashing of “Let you walk” Walker after she let Hector Pineiro Jr., the dangerous drug dealing son of RBG’s lawyer Hector Pineiro Sr, out on bail in 2012:

The police press release was prompted after Hector Pineiro, awaiting trial on charges stemming from a shooting last year in Fitchburg and unrelated gun and drug charges, was released from custody Wednesday on bail totaling $55,500 cash. His release came after a bail hearing held by Judge Kenton-Walker.

Guess what he did when he was out on bail? Violated by taking off his ankle bracelet. He was sentenced to two years, which he didn’t end up serving in it’s entirety, and then ended up getting arrested recently again after shooting someone on Shrewsbury Street. This is the kind of criminality that judges like Kenton-Walker are releasing into society.

What a joke our criminal justice system is. What a joke people like “Let you walk” Walker are. Since they’re appointed and not elected, we’re just gonna keep calling them out one by one. Because public shaming seems to be the best way to force people to do their jobs.

    Turtle Boy statue was a tribute to Samuel Burnside commissioned by his daughter for 5,000 dollars to be a drinking fountain for horses and dogs. Originally in Central Sq. it was moved to the Worcester common. If it still worked it would be a bubbler for the bums. Although weird it is a unique piece of art started by Charles Harvey who claimed the statue he was creating told him to kill himself on 1-27-1912. Charles Harvey committed suicide on that date and the statute was finished in 1912 by Sherry Fry.

    I remember when I was in my first year of law school, I thought I was going to save the world. I remember thinking how the Justic system would always prevail and how important it was for me to never lose sight of what was important. Then I started working and within 2 short years I was already burned out. I was disappointed not only in myself, for sticking around in a field of law I was not built to work in, but with the cold hearted individuals I had to work with every day. The things I experienced with my own eyes… Some defense attorneys are bigger criminals than the people they defend. Some Judges are bigger criminals than the attorneys they look in the eyes on a daily basis. All of this happening before my eyes made me second guess myself as an individual. I thought if I worked with or for someone like this, what kind of person am I?? I gave myself time to try and numb up to everything around me but it never happened. So, I left on to a different field and have been happy ever since.

    My point is, some people look in the mirror every single day and are okay with the things they do. They attempt to justify their actions and behavior by pointing fingers in directions that always lead to a dead end, causing that finger to always come back around to their nose. Yet, despite the fact that they know deep inside they are scum, they can still live. The positive behind all of this is that these same people who think they are invisible…never are. What we do in this world never goes unnoticed. It may take a while to be seen, discovered, or ousted but it will always become evident. When people become “crooked” or connected enough to be able to break the law and not be held responsible, it gives them a “I can do anything better than you” belief. The more bad things they do, the more they have to hide, the more they have to remember everything. When you tell the truth, everything is natural because it’s exactly what happened. When you become a liar, you have to remember every single solitary detail. No one can do this forever it will become overwhelming.

    People like Judge Walker, Ashley Losapio, Hector Jr., Hector Sr…. These people wear a cape around their neck. The best thing to do is tie that cape tighter. Let them think what they are doing isn’t being noticed. It creates that cocky, “I can do as I want with no repercussions” mentality and nine times out of 10, that’s when people get sloppy. All it takes is ONE mistake. They have to make ONE GOOD MISTAKE, and there lives will be ruined.

    With that being said, Hector Jr. has made way more mistakes than one. We can argue all day about the benefit or lack thereof when it comes to bail and that argument will never get anywhere. The fact of the matter is, Judge Walker had a job to do, and she did not do it well. Time and time again her decisions have allowed criminals to roam free. It is HER JOB to determine and set bail based on a few key factors (these are not all of them):

    1. Nature and circumstances of charges (um pretty serious!)
    2. Repeat offender (YES)
    3. Probable cause to believe he has or will commit a subsequent offense while released (YES – he has)
    4. Will he endanger members of the community (YES – he has)

    Is that not enough? Nope. Let’s set him free and when he takes off his cute anklet, we can have him back… then set him free again!! Sounds like a plan. Don’t worry – his days are coming. Both Jr. and Sr. will see life swing back around full circle, only this time, they will be the ones who suffer because of the things they have done. Enough of Hector and his piece of shit son. My blood pressure can’t handle it.

    On to Ashley, you make a good point TB about there being a leak and could it possibly be her? Perhaps it could be. Maybe, maybe not. I would hope that after her track record of being a chatty kathy, someone would be keeping an eye on her… Are they? 🙂 Only time will tell… It’s like that time someone stole from me and just because of that everytime I’m around them if something goes missing, they are the first person I think of. Same concept works for Ashley. Hehehehe… She’s not far behind Hector. Not only are they riding the same bus, they are getting off at the same stop.

    Without truly being too specific I want to end with saying that there are good people out there willing to put their career on the line in order to bring to light what has been so dark. Everything is usually difficult before it becomes easy. Patience… I have learned to be very patient. Only time will tell if everything I have ever done will mean anything, or will it be time wasted. Who knows? Either way, I tried my best.

    Jesus… This article really makes me go back a few years and remember everything… Didn’t realize it would make me post a damn thesis. Sorry! Also, this post was way too serious…

    Quick someone who dislikes me here, please troll me so I can tell you to suck a cock and go back to regular programming.

    Did the weapon actually get fired during the home invasion? Because there should be a ballistics test matching the weapon used in both crimes.

    Even then, the guy has a 9mm. A 9mm was used in the murders. How hard would it be to fire a couple rounds into some ballistic jelly and see if they match the rounds from the murder? Sounds like he either covered his tracks well, or the DA’s office fucked up as bad as the judge.

    This animal was charged with armed assault with intent to murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for the home invasion. In the summer of 2015, he was arrested again and charged with more firearm violations for having a loaded handgun in his car, which is when he was arrested for the home invasion. He was freed on $2500 bail!

    No wonder the police are worried about doing their jobs. Risk getting into a fight with a suspect, while having some assholes from the public yelling and video taping the arrest only to have judges let the scumbags go. Why freaking bother!?

    I’m right with ya TB, at least up until the part about the bail given for Pineiro…

    People always get so outraged when it comes to bail for criminal defendants but only because the concept is really misunderstood by the public.

    If you’re not aware, bail is never ever ever ever meant to be used as a form of punishment against a defendant. As outlined in the 8th Amendment, bail is actually designed to promote the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ and is meant only to provide enough incentive for the defendant to return to court and face the charges against them. This way, people are not punished with jail time before they are actually convicted of anything. It also allows defendants to better prepare their case and to continue providing for themselves or their family while awaiting trial.

    The 8th Amendment also makes sure that bail cannot be set so high that it would be impossible for defendants to pay it, which would turn it into a punishment and defeat the purpose. So a defendant’s financial situation is greatly factored into the amounts that are set, which is why different bail amounts can be given to different defendants even if they’re facing very similar charges.

    Defendants are only allowed to be held in custody until trial in the rare cases when it is determined that they are a significant flight risk or they pose an imminent danger to the public, which is actually quite difficult to prove. According to the T&G, “there was no request by the prosecutor for a dangerousness hearing in front of her.”

    On top of all that, in order to protect the all-important ‘innocent until proven guilty’ concept and prevent abuse to the public by an overpowered justice system, courts will often err to the side of leniency when imposing bail.

    So though we may occasionally see a case in the news (like Pineiro) where a defendant runs or commits another crime while out on bail, what we don’t normally see is the literally hundreds-of-thousands of criminal cases each year where bail worked exactly as it should have. Never mind the fact that should you ever find yourself caught up in criminal proceedings, especially if you’re innocent, you’ll want the 8th Amendment there to protect your rights.

    So don’t get upset at judges about bail… get upset at them for overly-lenient sentencing, especially for repeat offenders.

    • ProfessorM
      June 1, 2016 at 11:46 am

      Now, see, here is the problem with that. Criminals are not criminals because it’s something to do, they are 9 times out of ten criminals because it’s PROFITABLE TO THEM…. Now, unless the person has a 40 hour a week job, and is making absolutely no money in their criminal activities, how on earth are we to judge what is a price to high to be out of their means? I can respect the whole innocent to be proven guilty, but let’s be honest here, we are talking about repeat offenders here. We aren’t talking about someone who accidentally or inadvertently stepped out of the context of the law. These are people who spend twice a week in the courthouse. If you aren’t WORKING at the courthouse, and you are there more than once a month, bail shouldn’t be an option.

      • Bowen Hardcase
        June 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm

        I completely understand your points but the law simply can’t make distinctions like that and the same rules have to apply to everyone, whether they are the dregs of society or highly respected members of the community.

        As for the amounts of bail being given, as far as I’m aware judges don’t just use some standardized scale, like a tax return or paychecks. The prosecution will petition for a specific bail amount they want and argue/cite evidence as to why it’s fair while the defense will do the opposite. The judges then base their decisions on the evidence that was presented. Though the final amount set is often a compromise, the better lawyer will tend to get more of what they want.
