Remembering Sheena, always in our hearts

I snapped this photo of my only daughter Sheena Marie Amelia Villa on her 25th, and last, birthday, March 23, 2006, just hours before she was violently killed by Gross McGinley Partner Attorney Donald LaBarre's son Robert LaBarre who it would take DA Jim Martin 2.5 months to arrest, see TV news coverage. Robert LaBarre subsequently went AWOL on an unauthorized 10-day vacation to Belize, Central America and for which there were no consequences whatsoever from Judge Robert L. Steinberg (no bail revocation, no incarceration, no stern words, no nothing) and longtime Gross McGinley media client The Morning Call curiously refused to report on any aspect of this apparent crony-crooked colluding corruption/favoritism or incompetence.

This was an eye-opening experience for me.

There would be lots more dirty dealing truth concealing & political punishing for me to outmaneuver & vanquish in the months & years ahead in winning table scrap of justice for Sheena and her family, all of which I am greatly looking forward to exposing comprehensively again, this time for a judge and a jury, during the in-progress civil litigation Martin vs. Villa, as part of an ongoing tribute to Sheena Villa who should have been shown more respect by our local media and justice systems.

My Case for a DUI Third Degree Murder Charge for Sheena's Killer Robert LaBarre

See 7 relevant PA DUI/Third Degree Murder casesall 7 convictions were upheld on appeal. I made this same case to DA Jim Martin and Judge Robert Steinberg, repeatedly, in 2006, on behalf of Sheena.  

Commonwealth vs. Kling
Commonwealth vs. Urbanski
Commonwealth vs. Pigg
Commonwealth vs. Scales
Commonwealth vs. Levin
Commonwealth vs. Dunphy
Commonwealth vs. Thompson

" ... the mens rea [necessary element] for third degree murder is malice, the definition of which is well settled: Malice consists of a "wickedness of disposition, hardness of heart, cruelty, recklessness of consequences, and a mind regardless of social duty, although a particular person may not be intended to be injured...." "Malice may be found where the defendant consciously disregarded an unjustified and extremely high risk that his actions might cause serious bodily injury." -Levin

[Video] Watch Lehigh County District Attorney James B. Martin inadvertently admit Robert LaBarre's third degree murder malice on CBS-3 Philadelphia, see the 1:31 mark at "Sheena Villa" where an uncharacteristically unscripted DA Jim Martin says,  "I think that there will be evidence that, that, will indicate that both he [i.e., a surviving backseat passenger] and Miss Villa, uh, cautioned LaBarre to slow down."

Allentown Police Department Arresting Officer Kevin Kennedy's Crash Reconstruction Report indicates that Robert LaBarre never braked before crashing, airborne, into a tree on the other side of a 35MPH residential street at a determined minimum crash speed of 85MPH, killing Sheena Villa. That is tangible and palpable proof that Robert LaBarre consciously disregarded an unjustified and extremely high risk that his actions might cause serious bodily injury. Robert LaBarre disregarded (for an estimated 30 seconds) his two passengers' screams to slow down. Like Kling, Urbanski, Pigg, Scales, Levin, Dunphy, and Thompson, Robert LaBarre should have been charged with, and convicted of, the crime he committed: third degree murder. 

DA Jim Martin "passed" on a slam dunk DUI third degree murder case against Gross McGinley partner attorney Don LaBarre's son Robert LaBarre. Why? FYI, Gross McGinley partner attorney and "Democrat" Mal Gross is a cash contributing member of Republican DA Jim Martin's Reelection Campaign Host Committee and represents The Morning Call "newspaper" and Gross McGinley partner attorney Patrick J. Reilly represents both Robert LaBarre and DA Jim Martin. Additionally, Gross McGinley partner attorneys who are regular and generous campaign contributors to DA Jim Martin include Paul McGinley, Patrick Reilly, J. Jackson Eaton, III, Victor Cavacini, and Howard Stevens  [Source: Lehigh County Campaign Finance Reports] so you connect the dots.

DA Jim Martin refused to charge Robert LaBarre with third degree murder, despite the merit of the charge, and in spite of Sheena's family's pleadings that he do so. By charging only Vehicular Homicide While DUI, DA Jim Martin reduced what could and should have been a 20 to 40 year state prison sentence for Robert LaBarre ... to only 5.5 years. Sheena deserved more time than that; here's how you can help us get Sheena more time.

UpDate: 8/14/14 WAEB seemingly calls DA Jim Martin's "defamation" bluff (time will tell), for more info, see My Facebook Page

UpDate: On August 1, 2014, Lehigh County District Attorney James B. Martin through the Philadelphia law firm of Sprague & Sprague notified Clear Channel Communications, WAEB, and yours truly of his intention to maybe sue us for "defamation" re: "Broadcasts on WAEB About James B. Martin." Obviously, we've hit a nerve as DA Martin's reelection approaches next year. And just as obviously, DA Martin is bluffing. To prove defamation, he'll need to prove I told lies on the air knowing they were lies. I didn't do that. Ironically, DA Jim Martin knows he's lying about "defamation," since everything I've said on WAEB is true, verifiably factual, and/or my opinion, commonly (and legally) known as free speech, first amendment. DA Jim Martin may succeed in spooking Clear Channel and WAEB into never having me back on the air, to avoid costly litigation. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the case as I've thoroughly enjoyed my on-air rapport with Bobby Gunther Walsh; it's been terrific talk radio. But if Clear Channel/WAEB does throw me under the bus, I'll find another forum for de-throning Jim Martin in 2015, as I counter-sue him for frivolous, vexatious, and malicious litigation. So far, I'm undefeated in court. DA Jim Martin isn't. 


Together, we can de-throne crooked and incompetent Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin next election and trigger significant personnel housecleanings at The Morning Call "newspaper," 69 "News," and The "Express"-Times for the betterment of the Lehigh Valley. We deserve better justice systems locally, and better media coverage. What we have, far too frequently, is justice denied and crony-crooked and colluding truth concealing about it. I've experienced this first-hand via my daughter Sheena's killing, and for the past 8 years have been compiling other cases. There's a whole lot to expose. My thanks to Bobby Gunther Walsh, WAEB, and Clear Channel Communications for having the courage to put Bill Villa Facts & Truth on the air, regularly. See LVS's right sidebar content for upcoming topics and stay tuned for my next shows.

Welcome email from astute reader

Bill, I spent some time reading stuff on your website, and I must confess, that even knowing beforehand how rotten and how corrupt some of our local officials are, I was still very shocked at their level of depravity and lack of compassion regarding the loss of your daughter. Their comments are staggering, and their emotional intelligence low. But for the grace of God, there go they (not a threat). I am so sorry that you guys had to suffer the painful onslaught of their evil words, in addition to the loss of someone who obviously meant so much to you. Again, I am just floored. I had no idea that there seems to be no depth to the level of their evil. Hang in there. It's amazing that you have still tried to bring about positive change, while confronting such horrific individuals.

Judge Robert L. Steinberg spews sore loser racist rant at Andrew Gesslein sentencing

September 3, 2013 UpDate: Hellbent on freeing Michael Randolph's jury-convicted murderer Andrew Gesslein, Judge Steinberg refuses to recuse himself

June 28 UpDate: LVS Exposé Influence > DA wants Steinberg off appeals in guard's manslaughter case  -The Morning Call, see: Related Story and read more at my Facebook page.  

[June 12] 
Judge Steinberg:

Regarding Michael Randolph’s remorseless killer Andrew Gesslein, your only job on June 11, 2013 was to sentence Gesslein and to punish him for the crime a jury found him guilty of.

Instead, you decided to attack and punish the deceased victim, Michael Randolph, and his grieving family.

I was there and I was shocked by your cruelty.

Judge reluctantly sends guard to prison for killing aspiring rapper -The Morning Call

Security guard gets lowest possible sentence in fatal Allentown club shooting -The Express-Times

Contrary to local media accounts that continue to purposefully depart from reality regarding what really happened, an all-white jury did not believe that Michael Randolph “forced” his way into the North End Republican Club on April 29, 2012; they did not believe that Randolph “tussled” with Gesslein; they did not believe that Michael Randolph “reached” for a gun; and they did not believe that Andrew Gesslein shot Michael Randolph in self-defense. The jury believed the prosecution’s highly credible witnesses and the autopsy physician who all testified that Michael Randolph was shot in the back, multiple times, as he was running away from Andrew Gesslein.

But apparently you know better? Even with surveillance video, four credible witnesses, the timing of it all, and common sense supporting the jury’s just verdict, you had the audacity to parrot Gesslein defense attorney James Martin Connell's un-believed spin and the local media's sensational lies, that is, "forced," "tussled," "reached," etc., from the bench yesterday. Obviously, you were formulating your own verdict, when you should have been listening to the sworn testimony the jury based their correct verdict on.

Tragically, I counted six shots that you fired with malice into the backs of the Randolph family in open court yesterday …

1. “If Andrew Gesslein had been a police officer he would not have even been charged.” Related Story

2. “The victim and shooter couldn’t be more different.”
Related Story

3. “So let's not say Mr. Randolph was this wonderful person, because he was not.”

4. “I’m ‘handcuffed’ by the law” (to impose a mandatory minimum 5-year state prison sentence).

5. “I will recommend that Andrew Gesslein be sent to a minimum-security facility.”

6. “Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’”

So, Judge Steinberg … your “Honor” … apparently you believe that Michael Randolph got what he deserved, eh? That's sad.

FYI: you lost, because we handcuffed you and Luksa and Martin;  too bad we couldn’t have muzzled you as well. You should have kept your hateful opinions to yourself instead of “getting them off your chest” in open court.

You need to apologize publicly to the Randolph family and the Commonwealth and step down from the bench immediately.

You’re a disgrace to jurisprudence and humanity.


Bill Villa
[Emailed to Judge Steinberg]


An all-white jury didn't give them the not guilty verdict they wanted, so now Team Martin/Steinberg/Morning Call is considering simply changing the rules so they can set a confessed and convicted killer free.

We can do better than creepy cyber troll and sadist Father Alex Joseph as a Catholic priest

[UpDated Today] Although he's been living and allegedly studying for 9 years at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Seminary in Washington DC [offline again after not paying their delinquent website bill it appears], curiously, recently ordained Catholic priest (for now) and Easton PA native Father Alex Joseph has somehow found the time to remain a 24/7 obsessive-compulsive blog commenter at numerous hate blogs in The Morning Call "newspaper" affiliated Lehigh Valley blogosphere. Frequently, Father Alex Joseph posts blog comments incoherently and ghoulishly as himself at 3:00am and other un-Godly hours, but just as often his blog comments are anonymous or veiled behind a dizzying array of provocative yet inexplicable fake name pseudonyms including "The Efficient Cause," "A Man in the Circle," "An Exorcist," "Aquinas kind of," "The Mad Monk," and "The Village Idoti." Disgracefully and blasphemously, omnipresent Lehigh Valley blogger Father Alex Joseph refers to himself as "Sanctifying Grace" in his rambling and impious online blogger profile.

Why, in God's name, would a 'man of the cloth' so regularly and giddily cyber-cavort w/ hate bloggers of the ilk of Mike Molovinsky, Chris Casey, Michael Donovan, Bill White, Jeff Pooley, Rolf Oeler and others who continuously perpetrate sadistic cruelty, dishonesty, fraud, deceit, misrepresentation, blog comment forgery and wrongful/malicious comment attribution and cover-up, illegal conduct, and conduct in area courtrooms that has been prejudicial to the administration of justice and amounts to moral turpitude?

God only knows why some misguided Catholic priests do the truly evil things they do.

For example, on January 7, 2010, in a flat-out lie that continues to be libelously perpetuated and published all over the Lehigh Valley blogosphere, Father Alex Joseph publicly claimed that I punched him in the stomach in the Northampton County Courthouse. Readers (and stalkers) ... nothing even remotely resembling a "forearm (or elbow) to the gut" ever took place and I swear on my daughter Sheena's ashes that Father Alex Joseph is lying--slanderously, and sadistically--about this non-happening that includes me allegedly being "escorted from the courthouse by sheriff's deputies." Never happened.

As longtime LVS readers and stalkers know, over the past 5 years, Morning Call-affiliated hate bloggers have launched numerous websites dedicated to provoking, criminally harassing, and emotionally torturing my grief-stricken family and me for our "sin" of speaking truth to power. Many of these hate blogs (and their "anonymous" commenters) routinely threaten physical violence against the Villa family as Lehigh County District Attorney James B. Martin purposefully looks the other way and endorses their malice albeit unsuccessfully. Shamefully, Father Alex Joseph has weighed in w/ comments of support ... for the hate blog author ... at nearly all of them, frequently fabricating additional sadistic deceit and misrepresentation about Sheena's family and our justice mission.

"Good luck on your venture. Let me know if I can help in any way." Peace, ~~Alex See commenter "The Village Idoti" [Alex Joseph] November 15, 2009 1:02am

I've reached out, repeatedly, via emails and phone messages, to Father Alex Joseph's superior, Chorbishop Seely Beggiani, requesting, humbly, that Father Alex Joseph please stop his slanderous lies and sadistic provocations against my grieving family. I've never gotten a response or even an acknowledgement of email receipt from him. But as recently as January 2, 2013, I've continued to receive additional taunting emails from Father Alex Joseph. They contained no subject heading, but upon opening, the text read (and I'm paraphrasing), "Do not open, this email contains a virus." 

Creepily, Father Alex Joseph's Washington DC Comcast Cable Internet Protocol (IP) address* is spotted on this blog's SiteMeter and StatCounter, repeatedly, every day, at all hours of the day and night, most recently at 5:31:12am on May 29, 2013 (as of the time of this writing). Not coincidentally, six minutes later, at 5:37am on May 29, this "anonymous" hate blog comment appeared in the Lehigh Valley blogosphere ...

Anonymous said...
That poor bastard at his hate blog is making fun of Father Alex. Boy if he only knew. He couldn't even buy a clue because he is filled with hate. His hatred has blinded him. I kind of feel bad and pity for the old sap. The Blog Mentor's good looks and mind are leaving him. And now no one takes him seriously. He is down to picking on priests. What a sorry life one leads ... 5:37 AM

Shouldn't a Catholic priest have better things to do than posting "anonymous" and stalking hate blog comments at 5:37am and flocking w/ cyber bullies hell-bent on inflicting emotional pain on already suffering people? But sadly, this appears to be Father Alex Joseph's calling ... spraying cyber salt on the wounds of innocents being character assassinated and cyber terrorized by his blogging buddies, and then making a further mockery and endorsement of the sadistic harassment by offering up flippant and faux prayers of advice and compassion in taunting hate blog comments and emails aimed at the victim. Coming from an alleged 'man of God,' this kind of cyber sadism exemplifies pure evil.

As a former Vincentian seminarian studying for the Roman Catholic priesthood myself, my heart breaks for all the dedicated and truly good priests out there who must endure the suspicious glares of parishioners and passers-by because of a minority of evil priests who make the scandalous headlines and get exposed at truth blogs. My opinion is that it's time for the Catholic church to open up the priesthood to pious married men, and women, instead of having to scrape the bottom of the barrel for the likes of Alex Joseph who are destined to burn in hell for eternity.

UpDate: In response to LVS's verifiably factual exposé blog post on Father (for now) Alex Abraham Joseph, regularly manipulated Express-Times "reporter" Colin McEvoy and his "editor" Jim Deegan compliantly attempted damage control for Alex Joseph w/ this puff piece while simultaneously blocking me from commenting at their website but it was already too late. 

UpDate: Coming Soon > Father Alex Joseph stalking LVS 24/7 from his newly assigned parish in Brooklyn.

Seeking Charles Cullen Whistleblower

Mon., May 6, 2013 3:29 pm

Subject: Seeking Charles Cullen Whistleblower

Hey Scott, your assistant Maryann called me today and said you couldn't (and wouldn't) discuss Charles Cullen "because those were all homicide cases."

I reminded Maryann that all those Cullen homicide cases have been resolved, criminally and civilly, I believe.

Scott, I'm looking for a Charles Cullen whistleblower-- somebody with a conscience who "was there" (such as yourself) and who wants to see the whole truth get out there on DA Jim Martin,  Paul Laughlin, Stevens & Johnson, Seymour Traub, Arthur Hankin, Isidore Mihalikis, and Judge Reibman, etc., regarding what can reasonably be suspected as proactive litigation and public relations damage control for Lehigh Valley hospitals.

Especially troubling, as you must know, are DA Jim Martin's glaring conflicts of interest regarding both Stevens & Johnson (now Gross McGinley), coupled with DA Martin's decree in the local media that, "I'm the only one who can determine whether there is a conflict of interest ..." -The Morning Call, Families want Martin off Cullen case, July 1, 2004.

In a nutshell, Scott, Lehigh County's handling of the Charles Cullen case,  before and after Cullen's confession in New Jersey, seems to stink to high freakin' heaven.

I'd like to get to the very bottom of it all in a book I am exploring the possibility of writing.

Let me know if you change your mind about opening up to me, and/or if there's someone else you can steer me to.

Thank you for your consideration, Scott.

Readers (and stalkers), it was my great pleasure (for a 2nd time) on Thursday May 2 to address a graduating class of PA Parole Agents, this time at the PA Department of Corrections' training academy in picturesque Elizabethtown.

I was invited to speak by the Office of the Victim Advocate in Harrisburg.

After opening with a brief report on my April 22 meeting with the Allentown parole office, where I presented my plan for sending my daughter Sheena's remorseless and malice-sodden killer Robert LaBarre back to state prison (after discussing how LaBarre is behind in his court-mandated restitution payments to us for Sheena's deathbed hospital bill, still unemployed after 8 months, and lolling in his new daddy-bought house in Bethlehem), I spoke about being a crime victim, about how the local "powers that be" tried to fix the case in favor of my daughter Sheena's connected killer, and how I subsequently (with your help) outmaneuvered them all and made Sheena's killer Robert LaBarre, his army of Gross McGinley attorneys, DA Jim Martin, Judge Steinberg, and the crooked colluding crony local "newspaper" my victims. It went really great. I again spoke for 70 minutes, with lots of Q & A afterwards. The new parole agents could not have been more attentive, inquisitive, shocked (especially by the Jim Martin stuff), and empathetic. I told them that Robert LaBarre's parole agent, who I've developed an excellent working relationship with, had the exact same reaction to my story that they all had. I saw quite a few tears being shed for Sheena as I was speaking and I believe my story made an impact on them. I trust they'll all be keeping their hearts and minds open for crime victims in their new jobs monitoring convicted criminals like Robert LaBarre.

[UpDated April 9] LVS was there, check back for the inconvenient facts you won't get from our local media. 

In the meantime ...

* Join, follow, and share the discussion at the Justice For Michael Randolph Facebook page and at my Facebook page

* Savor the fact that an exposed DA Jim Martin was hog-tied by citizen pressure and prevented from giving Andrew Gesslein a bargain plea deal

* Sore loser "reporter" Bo Koltnow continues 69 News's rabid defense of Andrew "Guilty" Gesslein [Editor's Note: in their final online report, the Dick Dean-owned 69 "News" has finally dialed down their deceitful and inflammatory pro-Gesslein rhetoric]

* Sore loser Express-Times "reporter" Gregg Bortz passionately reiterates dim bulb defense attorney James Martin Connell's case apparently hoping he can change the jury's verdict

... and keep checking back for LVS's report.

April 7 LVS Report on April 4 GUILTY verdict 

In their pathetic, race-baiting reports on Andrew Gesslein's April 4 GUILTY verdict, our local media continues to flat-out lie. They've fabricated a big (and totally phony) deal about the courtroom crowd's reaction to the jury's GUILTY verdict, braying that "cheers" and "shouting" and "clapping" had to be quieted by Judge Steinberg, and that increased security measures had to be "deployed," including an additional metal detector at the courtroom entrance and that "at least 15 deputy sheriffs" surrounded the (now picture unruly and mostly African-American) courtroom crowd. What a crock of cracker shit. I was there. When the GUILTY verdict was read, the dominant sound emanating from the mostly African-American crowd was that of air being gasped inward, immediately followed by the sounds of crying being suppressed. If anyone "over-reacted" here it was Judge Steinberg in his knee-jerk muzzling of a quite natural and understandable expression of RELIEF (and shock) by the friends and family of Michael Randolph who had waited patiently and peaceably for nearly a year for this moment. Shame on Judge Steinberg. And Stonewall Steinberg got even more shameful a few minutes later when he arrogantly and defiantly and provocatively decreed that convicted killer and flight risk Andrew Gesslein could remain free on his ridiculously low bail until his sentencing on June 11, instead of ordering one of the many loitering deputy sheriffs to cuff Andrew Gesslein and throw his convicted GUILTY ass in Lehigh County Prison where it belongs to await sentencing on June 11. Amazingly, the crowd somehow remained silent during Judge Steinberg's sore loser sucker punch. Not surprisingly, our local media made no mention of the crowd's miraculous restraint and grace. 

Our local media also continues to deploy words including "forced" and "barged" and "bum rush" to deceitfully describe how Michael Randolph and his friends entered the North End Republican Club that fateful night-- always purposefully failing to quote Miguel Gomes's eyewitness testimony that Randolph and his friends had entered on Gomes's heels, that is, more like "slipping in" or "sneaking in" behind Gomes. Big difference. 

Our local media also continues to perpetuate the myths that there was a physical "tussle" between Michael Randolph and his friends and Andrew GUILTY Gesslein, never mentioning that only demonstrated liar Andrew Gesslein claims an alleged "tussle" and that Michael Randolph was "reaching" for a gun that wasn't there.  

As I was exiting the Lehigh County Courthouse on April 4, and passing through the turnstile-like devices in the lobby, in the company of numerous relatives and supporters of Michael Randolph, all of whom were behaving like the regular citizens they are, I overheard one of at least a half-dozen more deputy sheriffs who was standing behind the entrance desk quizzically and confusedly ask the deputy sheriff standing next to him ... 

"Is THIS the crowd we're here to protect against?" 

Kudos to the courageous and fair-minded all white jury who saw through all the racist and hateful Lehigh County bullshit and found Andrew Gesslein GUILTY.

UpDate: January 28, 2014 Email, Incoming > Mr. Villa, In response to our conversation I’m advising that the citation was re-filed. -Officer J. Ehl, Allentown Police Dept. Editor's Note: here are those Re-Filed Charges [New Trial: 3/19/14]

Readers (and stalkers), there are 3-dozen-plus court dockets in Northampton and Lehigh counties on Allentown City Council candidate (for now) Alfonso Todd. You can find them all as I did at the Pennsylvania Unified Judicial System website.

On Valentine's Day I spoke w/ the office of Northampton County Magisterial District Judge James J. Narlesky, District Court # 03-1-04, 248 Brodhead Road, Suite 2, Bethlehem, PA 18017, (610) 691-2364. Judge Narlesky's secretary told me ... 

There are currently two (2) warrants out for the arrest of Alfonso Todd. 

#1 warrant for the arrest of Alfonso Todd is for a still unresolved 2010 law-breaking [Judge Narlesky's secretary was unsure of the exact criminal violation involved here]. 

#2 warrant for the arrest of Alfonso Todd is for not responding to Northampton county's Feb 4 citation to Todd for Driving While Operating Privileges are Suspended or Revoked.

According to Judge Narlesky's office, this is Alfonso Todd's SECOND OFFENSE for Driving While Operating Privileges are Suspended or Revoked and could result in a 6-month jail sentence for Alfonso Todd. LVS is in the process of trying to find out why Alfonso Todd's driver's license was suspended in the first place [Judge Narlesky's secretary didn't know or wasn't saying]. 

Not surprisingly, you won't find any of these inconvenient FACTS at Molovinsky on Allentown, or, so far, via any of our local media.

In his frantic (and futile) damage control, Alfonso Todd continues to deceitfully refer to his ongoing and longstanding troubles w/ the law as "parking tickets." 

The citizens of Allentown are entitled to know the truth about Allentown City Council candidate Alfonso Todd. 

On Feb 13 & 14, I submitted everything you're reading here (plus digital files of Alfonso Todd's 3-dozen-plus court dockets) to 3-dozen-plus local reporters and editors at The Morning Call "newspaper," 69 News, and The Express-Times. We know they all scour the local blogs for stories, so I'm certain they've all read Alfonso Todd's responses at the accommodating and Morning Call-affiliated blog of Mike Molovinsky, at one of Todd's many Facebook pages, and at one of Todd's numerous blogs, "Urban Renewal." 

What should be glaringly apparent to them all is how blatantly and pathologically Alfonso Todd is lying about the factual details of the evidence in their possession.

These aren't 
"just parking tickets."

They're also not "past lessons," nor are they "BLACKMAIL!" or "THREATS!" made by me, as Todd has been braying hysterically all over the internet.

They're an astute find by an Allentown taxpayer who wants to prevent bullshit artist and flim-flammer Alfonso Todd from bamboozling Allentonians as a member of City Council.

Email, Outgoing, to 3-dozen-plus local reporters and editors at The Morning Call "newspaper," 69 News, and The Express-Times, cc'd to Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, Villas-friendly members of Allentown City Council, and disgraced ex-Allentown City Council VP and Alfonso Todd campaign mentor Michael Donovan.

Subject: Alfonso Todd & Megan's List 

Morning Call, 69 News, Express-Times: 

The citizens of Allentown are entitled to know the truth about Allentown City Council candidate Alfonso Todd and it's your responsibility to inform them.

For your consideration ... 

* There are currently 2 warrants out for the arrest of Allentown City Council candidate Alfonso Todd, see: 

LVS Exposé: "We CAN Do Better than Alfonso Todd on Allentown City Council.  

* At his own blog, "PERSPECTIVE" (see attached PDF), Alfonso Todd admits to having a convicted felon business partner (see attached PDF) whose crime is listed on the PA Megan's Law website. Todd also admits to having had prior knowledge of this information before co-staging "community events" w/ this individual. 

"Do I do business with felons, sex offenders, drug dealers, scofflaws and other criminals ? Yes. In fact, I had a partner in a past business called BLURB MEDIA who was a convicted felon. He came looking for opportunity and warned me of his crime which is listed on the PA Megans Law website ... My partner assisted me with great community events that enriched the neighborhoods, networked with Executive Directors, City Officials, the Mayor and his wife ... Our projects were seen by thousands and picked up by local television stations and publications." -Alfonso Todd

Clearly, Alfonso Todd's jaw-dropping recent admissions about his BLURB MEDIA business partner raise an array of excellent questions that deserve to be asked, and answered, in our local media.

For example ...

* Did all the young women who participated in BLURB MEDIA fashion shows and beauty pageants know that Alfonso Todd's co-host, [Redacted], is on Megan's List as a registered sex offender for having committed third degree rape of a young woman?

* Regarding youth-catering non-profit organizations that collaborated w/ BLURB MEDIA, they're required by PA state law to conduct criminal background checks on people who come in contact w/ their youth clients ... did they know that Alfonso Todd's business partner [Redacted] is on Megan's List as a registered sex offender?

* What about the "Executive Directors" who collaborated w/ BLURB MEDIA, did they know?

I look forward to viewing your respective news coverages on this, and on a related subject, please stay tuned to LVS for a bombshell that no one will see coming on this story.

Bill Villa

So what will be the response here ... more shameful truth concealing by our local media? 

An appropriate mainstream media exposé on Alfonso Todd and Associates?  

It'll be one, or the other, and either way, Villas win. Think about it.

Yes, things are getting real interesting here, and as an added bonus, we have dour and misguided buttinsky Mike Molovinsky deceive-spinning his blog readers and publicly threatening me at his comment-moderated blog for my verifiably factual (and even civil) exposé on Alfonso Todd by publishing this provocative threat ...

"Bill Villa ... These are the seeds of dangerous physical injury." -Molovinsky on Allentown 


I hear you, Mike.

My fellow Allentonians, we CAN do better than Alfonso Todd (and his thuggish blogger backers) on Allentown City Council.

RE: Docket Number: MJ-03104-TR0000434-2013

Judge Narlesky, Your Honor:

I understand there's a private meeting or a public hearing (your secretary [Redacted] has pledged to call me back on this) scheduled for this Thursday, Feb 21, 2013 @ 9:00am regarding the two (2) arrest warrants currently out on habitual recidivist scofflaw defendant and Allentown City Council candidate Alfonso Todd for his 2ND OFFENSE, 
Driving While Operating Privileges are Suspended or Revoked as well as a 2010 prior that Alfonso has also been ducking.

As a "sidebar," Your Honor, I am pleased to have been the civic-minded catalyst for Alfonso Todd finally contacting you and accepting some small measure of accountability for his antisocial behavior through my Lehigh Valley Somebody blog post on Alfonso, 
LVS Exposé: "We CAN Do Better than Alfonso Todd on Allentown City Council.  

Your Honor, considering the fact that Mr. Todd has been thumbing his nose at police and the courts for over a decade; that he has been NAILED, TWICE, for Driving While Operating Privileges are Suspended or Revoked ... that he has accumulated dozens of scofflaw parking tickets over the years, necessitating that the courts must chase him down; and finally, Your Honor, that this man has the audacity to insult the citizenry and run for Allentown City Council, I humbly ask that you impose the maximum 6-month jail sentence on Alfonso Todd as you have the full authority to do.

Thank you, Your Honor, for considering being as civic-minded as I am.

Best Regards,

Bill Villa

Editor's Note: Narlesky letter "reprinted" ... but w/ all the damaging facts edited out ... at Molovinsky on Allentown

UpDate: Feb 21, 2013 


I arrived at Judge Narlesky's courtroom at 8:55am for the scheduled 9:00am Alfonso Todd hearing, but curiously, Judge Narlesky had started early and things seemed to be about 98% over by 8:55am. Ex-longtime Morning Call "newspaper" entertainment editor and current ex-Mrs. Michael Donovan companion and new hire 69 "News" reporter Len Righi (right) arrived around 8:58am and scowled at my greeting.

Other than "associate" (scroll down) and rent scofflaw defendant Gina Blevins, Alfonso Todd had no supporters (cyber or otherwise) in attendance-- no Mike Molovinsky, no Michael Donovan, no Bob Romancheck, no Rolf Oeler or Warren Kirkner, no Dick Nepon, no Jeff Pooley, no Father Alex Joseph, no Diane Teti or Diana Morse, no Krista or Chris Casey, no Bill White, no attorney (for now) David Najarian, no Facebook "friends," no nobody. It was kind of sad.

I believe starting purposefully early was thoughtless, rude, and pusillanimous of Judge Narlesky who knew there would be an interested party attending who had taken the time to write him a thoughtful letter. As a result, no one will know the truth about what excuses Alfonso Todd whimpered to the Judge regarding why he had been ignoring two (2) Northampton County warrants for his arrest until LVS's exposé reporting got Alfonso's full attention and that of all the candidates opposing him for a seat on Allentown City Council.

When it was over, "Judge" Narlesky dashed for the exit, but I stopped him cold in his retreat tracks as Len Righi looked on haplessly. "Your Honor, " I said, "this hearing was scheduled on the public court docket to start at 9:00am but obviously you started earlier than that." "Yes, sometimes I do, if the defendant is here early," Narlesky said. "Fine, but would you mind filling me in on what I missed, Your Honor," I asked, politely. And Judge Narlesky explained to me (as Len Righi took notes but apparently not very good ones) that Alfonso Todd pled guilty to "SECOND OFFENSE, driving while operating privileges are suspended or revoked and some parking tickets ... $897 fine." "No jail time?" I asked incredulously. "No," said Judge Narlesky sheepishly who then quickly made it to the exit. 

Sadly, we didn't get a chance to discuss Alfonso Todd and Megan's List.

And the bombshell no one will see coming on this story.

Maybe Len Righi will cover it. Doesn't matter. 

Alfonso Todd. 

He's done.

69 Spin  [Calculated? Incompetence? Who knows?]
Editor's Note: Here's Len Righi's report. Curious what Len doesn't report on, a.k.a. the main reason why Alfonso Todd was in court today: SECOND OFFENSE, driving while operating privileges are suspended or revoked. Len Righi also lets Alfonso Todd get away w/ claiming, "I am not some scofflaw who was driving around with a suspended license" when that's exactly what Todd was doing, and got caught doing, twice. Len, you really should stick to writing about girl blues singers and calling them all "sassy."

Editor's Note: The Morning Call "newspaper" and The Express-Times are continuing to ignore all aspects of LVS's exposé blog post on Alfonso Todd.

RE: Alfonso Todd

Judge Narlesky:

It was thoughtless, rude, and pusillanimous of you to strategically commence your Feb 21 Alfonso Todd hearing before its announced start time of 9:00am.

You knew there would be an interested party attending who had taken the time to write you a thoughtful letter.

Worse than flagrantly insulting me, your short shrift totally confused 69 News "reporter" Len Righi and resulted in a great disservice to readers of WFMZ-TV 69's website coverage of the hearing.

See: 69 "News" Coverage 

As you can see, Your Honor, because of your bum's rush out of your courtroom, 69's Len Righi erroneously deduced (via interviewing the guilty defendant) that this story was about "parking tickets" and the "average Joe."

Fact is, Your Honor, the Alfonso Todd hearing was about a candidate for Allentown City Council ... with a long history of scoff-lawlessness ... who had been caught driving ... with a suspended license ... twice. 

This story, i.e., The Truth, is what should have been presented by 69 News to the voters of Allentown on Feb 21, if not for your cavalier negligence and incompetence.

Len, you were sitting there taking notes when Judge Narlesky told us both that Alfonso Todd pleaded guilty to SECOND OFFENSE, driving with suspended license, i.e., caught twice, for driving with a suspended license. That's very telling. 

Why did you omit this FACT from your story? 

And more importantly, why were you so Alfonso-compliant regarding minimizing this to a story about "parking tickets" and the "average joe?"

Incredibly, you let [Allentown City Council candidate] Alfonso Todd get away w/ claiming ...

"I am not some scofflaw who was driving around with a suspended [driver's] license," when that's exactly what Todd was doing, and got caught doing, twice.

Len, I believe your (and Brad's) agenda was to be specifically "not Bill Villa-compliant" w/ the story, even if that meant not telling the whole truth. Which is what you did in your story, you flat-out lied, and this had to be on purpose, unless you're hard of hearing-- although there's nothing stopping you from calling Judge Narlesky and confirming what I heard, and have reported at Lehigh Valley Somebody.

Plan B of course would be for you to phone 69's go-to pal Jim Martin and claim BV "harassment" [Editor's Note: a losing strategy in the past].

Your call. -BV

Sadly, the Lehigh Valley media's collective personal vendetta against me for continuously exposing  their colluding cronyism and incompetence is so pervasive, they will not only ignore vital news stories I direct them to (e.g., Alfonso Todd's business partnership w/ a Megan's List-registered sex offender that I originally brought to them more than 2 years ago), they will purposefully spin stories to deceptively exonerate and even deceitfully praise elected officials I have exposed with damaging and verifiable facts. It's like a thin-skinned spite game with these people, the FACTS be damned, the public's RIGHT TO KNOW be damned, just make sure we don't ever give a voice to dangerous truth-teller Bill Villa. Everyone in our community (except me) suffers b/c of their fears, their fragile egos, and their 100% integrity-free approach to not doing their jobs at The Morning Call, 69 News, and The Express-Times.

Sorry, Bill, but as long as you keep up the name-calling, bullying, and conspiracy accusations, I have no intention of speaking with you.

We pursue a story you propose -- in fact, we're the only news organization that gets the word out that Alfonso Todd has a laundry list of traffic violations, including driving with a suspended license [twice]-- and you respond by slamming us.

Had you simply said ... 

“Len, I think your story would have been more effective had you mentioned this was Todd’s second offense” [driving w/ suspended license], 

you might have gotten some traction…but it’s too late now. 

At least for the time being.

Bullshit, Brad. This is how you local media pussies roll. You ignore my repeated polite outreaches and then flag me for "incivility" when I quite naturally lose my temper over your incompetence and neglect. Fuck you. You too, Len.

At his own blog, "PERSPECTIVE," Allentown City Council candidate Alfonso Todd admits to having a convicted felon business partner whose crime is listed on the PA Megan's Law website. Todd also admits to having had prior knowledge of this information before co-staging "community events" w/ this individual. 

"Do I do business with felons, sex offenders, drug dealers, scofflaws and other criminals ? Yes. In fact, I had a partner in a past business called BLURB MEDIA who was a convicted felon.

Readers (and stalkers), to date, even though LVS originally supplied the details on Alfonso Todd's Megan's Listed sex offender business partner to 69 News, The Morning Call, and The Express-Times more than 2 years ago, all three local "news" organizations continue to conceal these facts from the voting public.

Top 'O the glorious mornin' to you both!

Fellas, perchance ... would there be any journalistic interest (and/or sense of civic duty) on your part regarding 69 News exposing to the voting public the story of an Allentown City Council candidate [Alfonso Todd] w/ not only [as you pointed out to me recently] a "laundry list of traffic violations, including driving with a suspended license [twice]," but also Mr. Todd's recent public self-admission of a business partnership w/ a Megan's Listed sex offender [3rd degree rape of a young woman] that resulted in beauty pageants and fashion shows w/ local young women that were publicized by 69 News. Although I am not one to find fault and point fingers, in my humblest of opinions, this could be one heck of a blockbuster exposé news story of ... 

"stunningly bad judgement by a political aspirant"  

... in your capable, astute, ethical, and integrity-laden hands.

I have taken the liberty of doing some humble background labor on my own which you can read here,
