DA Jim Martin & Retired Judge Brenner Give Joshua Share a "Julia Brenner Deal"



From yesterday's Morning Call online:


Readers, Best Friend of Drunk Drivers DA Jim Martin set the Joshua Share case up for a "wrist slap" from Lehigh County Senior (Retired) Judge Lawrence J. Brenner by (again) inexplicably dropping the major charge-- in this case felony aggravated assault. See LVS's illuminating July exposé entitled, Booze-loving DA Jim Martin gives another drunk driver the break of a lifetime.

And ... I think I know why Senior (Retired) Judge Lawrence J. Brenner was brought out of mothballs, infused w/ embalming fluid, and propped up on the bench for this case-- an assignment that, BTW, would have been arranged by President Judge Carol K. McGinley, a co-founder of the crony-connected law firm Gross McGinley that regularly represents crony pals such as The Morning Call and unethical election conduct scofflaw DA Jim Martin. Yep. It's who you know around here. And who knows who. And who keeps a lid on everything.

Just a theory, but I'm betting that DA Jim Martin asked President Judge Carol Gross McGinley to put the most lenient, alcoholic-sympathetic, and DUI-friendly judge in Lehigh County on the Joshua Share case, and that judge is definitely Lawrence J. Brenner.

Why? Simple.

Judge Brenner's wife Julia was arrested for drunk driving ...



... and, like Joshua Share, after excessively high blood alcohol content, high-speed drunk driving that sent her airborne, and into a tree, which could have killed her passenger (her husband, Judge Brenner), Julia Brenner got off really easy too. Crony cozily, Julia Brenner was represented by Malcolm Gross McGinley and her "newspaper" coverage was written by then Morning Call coverup "reporter" and now DA Jim Martin coverup Executive Aide Debbie Garlicki, see ...  


Sometimes it's what you know.

Readers, not surprisingly, the IP address "LehighCounty.org" is spotted stalking LVS for damaging and exposed dirty facts hundreds of times each day, and these gold-bricking folks would of course include DA Jim Martin, "Executive Aide" (wink wink) Debbie Garlicki, County Executive (for now) Don Cunning-Ham, DA Jim Martin shield/sycophant/notary Merrily Starkey, Detective Dennis Steckel, and Chief Deputy DA Dog Renee Smith among others (e.g., judges McGinley, and Reibman).

Notice how The Morning Call "newspaper" downplays Julia Brenner's blood alcohol content.

It was .21 ... but the "newspaper" says "twice" the legal limit. Twice would be .16 ... .21 is closer to thrice the legal limit.

And good thing Judge Brenner wasn't under oath when the "newspaper" gave him the curious opportunity to minimize his wife's impairment and further enable her w/ these quotes ...

"Absolutely there was no indication of a problem until she swerved off the road," said Brenner, who added that his wife was unconscious for a while after the crash.

"Knowing her and this thing, it's really an aberration," the judge said about his wife of 35 years.

Your "Honor" ... only professional alcoholics can drink to .21 and still "function."

w/ all due respect, you're lying about an "aberration."

Do Lehigh County a favor and retire permanently.

I thought this part was really funny ...

"Capt. Theodore Kohuth, commander of state police Troop M, called it "a garden-variety" DUI case."

Yeah right. It's every day that a judge's wife flies through the air drunk and hits a tree and the state police report it before Jim Martin and Dave Erdman can cover it up.

Bill Villa said...

Looks like the state police tried to cover it up ...

"A state police news release on the accident did not mention the drunken driving charge. Kohuth said the charge was filed after the news release was written, but he conceded that the release should have noted that Julia Brenner's blood was drawn to test for alcohol."

You can't trust anybody around here.

McJudas said...

Touché. Martin and Erdman likely did some horse trading on this one.

No comment ... ;D

Bill Villa said...

Some transparently preemptive "me thinks she doth protest too much" quotes from Julia Brenner's lawyer, Susan Ellis Wild, dutifully reported by The Morning Call of Gross McGinley.

"Wild said there is no conflict of interest when one county judge presides over the case of a colleague's wife." [Alrighty then].

"Julia Brenner was given no special treatment, and her case was handled in the routine way by Diefenderfer, a retired judge who usually hears ARD cases as a senior judge, Wild said."

"Wild said all discussions were with Julia Brenner and "there was no intervention by her husband.""

The resolution was discussed with A. Renee Smith, a supervisor of drunken driving and motor vehicle offenses in the district attorney's office, and was approved by District Attorney James B. Martin.

Mrs. Dottie said...

Also ...

The agenda framing "reporting" on the Julia Brenner wrist slap was carried out by longtime Morning Call courthouse beat "reporter" and recently fast-tracked "Executive Aide" in DA Jim Martin's office ... Debbie Garlicki ... they've got all the bases covered ... ;D

WTF? said...

Q. WTF is up w/ these Stockholm Syndrome (?) DUI victims who hug and cuddle-up w/ their perpetrators in court and can't wait to go drunk driving w/ them again?

"Despite pleas from passenger Joshua Reinert to slow down, police said, Share continued speeding and lost control of his car, going airborne and striking a pole ..."

"A crash investigation determined that Share was heading east on Arrowhead Lane "at speeds in excess of 100 mph."

"Reinert suffered vertebrae fractures in his neck and spine, bruised lungs and knee injuries. Reinert ... isn't sure if some of the injuries he suffered will continue to bother him for the remainder of his life ..."

"Reinert, who walked into the courtroom with Share, his old college friend, didn't want Share to have a felony on his record and didn't want him to serve jail time ..."

??????

Bill Villa said...

"WTF," mind-boggingly, what you've spotlighted seems to be the norm w/ these cases, even when a drunk driver's victim is killed.

As maybe you can tell, I've never understood this.

But I theorize that the concept of standing up for oneself, and demanding that justice be done, is just too daunting for most people. They'd rather stuff their rage and anesthetize themselves in vapors of "forgiveness."

And DA Jim Martin loves this, because w/ crime victims braying that they want to "go easy" on their perpetrators, this means less work for Jim and more free time at Ye Olde Limeport (hiccup) Hotel.

However, what DUI homicide victims want ...

does not swing both ways w/ Jumbo Jimbo.

Say, for example, that a crime victim's family wants the MAXIMUM SENTENCE for their offender. Like we did.

Good Luck.

Another wrist slap ...

this time by Lehigh County Judge Kelly Banach, who, BTW, was propelled into office thanks in part to the efforts of her Campaign Chairperson, Julia Brenner's lawyer (see paragraph 4) Susan Ellis Wild, from Gross McGinley.

Back to Banach's wrist slap ... this guy had a prior DUI, and another crash and speeding violation AFTER killing someone while speeding and driving drunk.

And he gets county jail ... work release.

That really sends a message.

Here's LVS's recent post on this case.

Readers, although we get a steady spew stream (daily) of cyber stalking taunts and threats here at LVS, and sadly, not all of them are from (wink wink) "anonymous" ...

tellingly, no one ever factually disputes our dirty facts on DA Jim Martin and The Morning Call "newspaper."

EXCELLENT QUESTION DEPARTMENT

The Morning Call reported that the daughters of the woman killed by speeding drunk driver Miqueas Garcia at LV Mall "GASPED" when hearing assistant D.A. Bernardino tell the court that their mother's killer had had a PRIOR DUI...and an arrest for a high-speed crash AFTER killing their mother.

Seems like they were hearing this very crucial information FOR THE FIRST TIME at the sentencing of their mother's killer (ditto clueless Judge Kelly Banach too).

My excellent question (Part A) is this: if D.A. Bernardino had told the daughters (and Judge Banach) about Garcia's PRIOR and POST-murder arrests BEFORE THE SENTENCING HEARING, do you think the DAUGHTERS (and the JUDGE) would have been as sympathetic to defendant Garcia and as willing to give their mother's killer/Garcia "a second chance?"

I seriously doubt it.

My excellent question (Part B) is this: Did Bernardino manipulate the daughters' sympathetic "second chance" position by WITHHOLDING INFORMATION FROM THEM UNTIL SENTENCING?

Sure looks that way to me.

And this highly suspect "time the telling of the crucial information" maneuver would be curiously similar to the one used by Chief Deputy DA Renee Smith on the grieving Mohney family in the Chris Squires DUI homicide?

Bill Villa said...

Touché, and not really questions. More like glimpses into the DA Jim Martin playbook.

Anonymous said...

Its not like D.A. Martin is "expediting" DUI-related cases because he has "bigger" cases to try in court.

Martin plea bargains away the bigger cases too! As this blog continually exposes.

So what exactly does Jim Martin actually do?

Bill Villa said...

Now that's an excellent question.

Here's my answer ...
