Hector Pineiro is Worcester’s version of Saul Goodman. Except he’s not funny, nobody likes him, and his clients are awful people like RBG and the Kelley Sqaure 4:

This is a man who has made a career out of suing the City of Worcester for police brutality by taking up the cause of each and every scumbag he can find who has been arrested. He’s figured out that it is cheaper for the city to settle these frivolous lawsuits out of court than it is for them to pay their team of lawyers to fight these ridiculous claims that Worcester’s finest assholes got boo-boos in the process of getting arrested.
While Hector was making all this money off of the taxpayer’s, he was also raising a child who grew up to be the lowest of the low. Shocking, I know. But Hector Pineiro Jr. has been arrested for some pretty serious shit, including a shooting during a drug deal gone wrong. He has served time in prison, and has violated terms of his release. One time he left his father’s house without his court mandated tracking device. More recently he was arrested for shooting someone on Shrewsbury Street. When he was put into handcuffs in his apartment the police found a gun and tons of drugs. This is the type of monster that Hector Pineiro raises while he is out making money by attacking police officers and stealing from the taxpayers. This is an actual quote from him yesterday:
“I guess at that time we were also just trying to extort the taxpayers.”
At least he’s honest.
Turtleboy is a firm believer in Karma though. Dooshnozzles always get their comeuppance. Eventually the city would grow a set of balls and stand up to this litigious con-artist. Eventually Hector would pick the wrong scumbag as a client and he’d get caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
Well, this week was the week that Hector finally got his. He recently took up the case of a Bridgewater State prisoner named Jerome Smith. He’s basically as dangerous as you can get, and if you Google “Jerome Smith Worcester” it’s a bibliography of his courthouse records:
This guy would prove to be Hector’s downfall. Jerome Smith was arrested in 2010 after police raided his house, looking for drugs and guns. The gang squad came to the door carrying a fire extinguisher, in case Jerome’s dogs attacked them. According to the police as they raided Mr. Smith’s house, he fought back, resisted, and tried to run. Thus force was necessary to take him down and he got a b00-boo in the process.
The next year in 2011 he was arrested AGAIN on gun charges. This violated the 20 strikes and you’re out policy, and he was sentenced to 11-13 years in Bridgewater State Prison.
Then in 2013 he got the call from Hector that every criminal waits for. Jerome Smith was gonna be the next career criminal that Hector was gonna use to pay his own son’s bail money the next time he got picked up on gun charges:
Hector brought four decorated, veteran Worcester Police officers to federal court this week on a variety of charges. He alleges that the police officers bludgeoned Jerome’s face with the fire extinguisher while shouting racial slurs at him.
As soon as we heard about this case we all just started laughing. Bludgeoning with a fire extinguisher? You don’t get bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher. You get killed with a fire extinguisher. Seriously pick up an average fire extinguisher (not the little ones in your kitchen either) and smash it down on your table a few times. Let me know what happens. More than likely you won’t have a table anymore. Now imagine doing that to a face. There wouldn’t be much of a face left after that. So yea, obviously anyone with a brain knows this didn’t happen.
Medical records indicated Mr. Smith did not lose consciousness, as he testified on the stand. Ms. Quinn also noted that Mr. Smith, who received four stitches to his eye, was not observed to be in pain by hospital staff.
Oops!!! Probably should’ve consulted with the doctors and nurses before you took this one to court Hector. You get stitches when you accidentally bang your head against that cabinet door that you always forget to close, not when you are repeatedly bludgeoned by a fire extinguisher.
What about the racial slurs? Well the cops all testified that it was bullshit, and Jerome Smith said it was real. Gee, I wonder who we should believe? The guy who has been arrested a million times and will say and do just about anything to get out of jail and get a nice pay day. Or the cops who were simply doing their job, taking out the most dangerous people amongst us who threaten our safety on a daily basis.
Oh yea, and SOMEHOW the judge in this case gave into Hector’s request that the jury not be made aware of the fact that he is currently a prisoner in Bridgewater. Ya got that? They played dress up with him, tossed him in a suit, and pretended like he was just your average citizen walking the streets. Because if the jury knew he was a lifelong criminal, it might make them realize what the truth is. And Hector HATES the truth!!
Here’s where Hector lost this case though. He needed witnesses to testify that the cops yelled racial slurs at him while beating him with a fire extinguisher. The ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Medina and her sister were the only ones who could do this. But what if they said something on the stand that fucked up the case? A lot could go wrong for Hector and there was a lot of money on the line.
That’s when he doctored up the scheme to keep them off the stand because they were “concerned about the repercussions of testifying against police.” So he wanted to enter their written affidavits into evidence instead. Ya getting all this? Hector wants us to believe that these women are so deftly afraid of cops that they can’t look at them in court while they accuse them of something that will permanently damage their reputations and careers. Because cops apparently don’t have the right to face their accusers because they might trigger PTSD by simply being alive.
The judge saw right through that jive and issued an arrest warrant for both witnesses. When federal marshals caught up with Ms. Medina, she admitted that Jerome Smith Smith offered her “some kind of inducement” for her testimony. But obviously whatever he was offering her wasn’t enough, because she clearly wanted no part of it.
That’s why Hector had to magically produce an affidavit that he thinks we are all stupid enough to believe that she wrote. She would not have to be cross examined and asked point blank if any of it was true. We’d just have to take Hector’s word for it that he didn’t write it himself.
As soon as the judge found out about this he declared a mistrial and Hector withdrew from the case. This has never happened to him before. He’s gotta be confused as hell right now!! Hector was expecting them to settle. The city ALWAYS settles. But when you keep fucking with the taxpayers and being a royal pain in the ass to the DA, City Manager, and police, everyone has their breaking point. And Jerome Smith was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
In a nutshell, Ms. Medina was offered a bribe to present false testimony against four decorated vice squad police officers. She didn’t wanna do it and the whole thing blew up. There are only two people who could have have put this scheme together – Hector Pineiro or Jerome Smith. Luckily the federal government does not fuck around with matters like this, and the U.S. Attorney’s office will be investigating this thoroughly. In due time we’ll have our answers. I think it’s safe to say that we’re all hoping that Hector is the one who did it, because Jerome Smith is in jail anyway. Karma is a bitch, isn’t it?
