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. 

THE BIGGER THEY COME, 
THE HARDER THEY FALL.

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.

I tuned in to your 15 minutes on air this morning. Even though I have followed your quest for justice intently over the years, today's airing, with your actual voice being heard, brought a whole new vision, and "voice" to your cause.

It brought tears to my eyes, as I am sure it did yours, and I will be tuning in to the next show, and thanking Gunther-Walsh for having you on air.

Lets keep praying, for justice, for Sheena, and for those who have tried to derail you, that they have a major fall from grace, clashing with the wrong person.

God Bless,

You had me on the edge of my seat this morning (with tears in my eyes) and I can hardly wait for tomorrows show with Gunther. I hope with all my heart that the effort you put into exposing the truth about local government in Lehigh county will get the attention of the attorney general. Many of us have suffered under the oppressive, pugnacious and evil intent of the Lehigh county justice system. I particularly want my State representatives, Congressman, and Senators, to pay attention. My complaints to politicians about corruption in Lehigh county court have fallen on deaf ears. Hopefully other victims of the Lehigh county justice system will have the courage to come forward with their stories. When Bobby used the word corrupt in describing the courts this morning it was priceless. Let the Morning Call eat their filthy rag of a news paper. Shame on them for duping their subscribers. Shame on the Lehigh county judges that abuse us, our children, and litigants. Shame on the entire office of the district attorney. And last but not least shame on the bar association in Lehigh county.

Harry J Shelhamer

Just heard the play back from WAEB today. I am glad you are finally getting to be heard. I personal gave up on the Morning Call many years ago when they decided to only report on one side of an issue (the Mayor's side) I was very involved with in Bethlehem. I was astounded with how they could totally ignore facts and misrepresent peoples statements to push their predetermined conclusion of a story. Much like today's national media. I do take comfort in the fact that they continue to loose readership because people do see through these lies and someday in the not so far future they will close their doors wondering where did it all go wrong. My heart goes out to you and your family! Keep on speaking up!!!

Hey, wanted you to know you sounded great on the radio. Confident not arrogant. Very sincere and informed. My favorite part was the question about a vendetta. How great you slipped in about Martin having one against you. That [Expletive Deleted] certainly does now. Can't wait for next interview. Were you nervous? Didn't sound it. You and Gunther have good chemistry. No surprise he had the same problem with the legal system. Jimbo better be prepared for his day on there. Hope Bobby keeps it real with him (since he's such a liar). Hope you can brief Gunther before his interview with Martin. Bobby's gotta know who he's dealing with. Good Luck! Tell Gunther this could be his best work on radio ever. He will definitely win over a lot of fans with your story. He is proving many people wrong. Great thing!

Hi Jim, FYI, I'll be discussing the James W. Lauer case on WAEB soon (possibly Monday Feb 24).

Your call ... either give me an answer to my polite and reasonable "10-year look back" question now [Originally asked a month ago on January 25th] or know that Gunther's listeners (i.e., your voting base) will hear that you're refusing to answer it, and that none of your lapdogs in the local media are asking it. Ditto any questions about Lauer's VIP "afternoon furlough" to attend his son's wedding while doing time in Lehigh County Prison (and why wasn't Lauer in State Prison?) for DUI #3 in 2010.

Subject: James W. Lauer "10 Year Look Back"

DA Martin, correct me if I'm wrong on this ...

In Pennsylvania and Lehigh County, a first offense DUI, processed through Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) is expunged from an offender's record if, after a 10-year "look back" period, another DUI offense isn't repeated.

James W. Lauer repeated his 2003 1st offense DUI ... in 2006 ... just three (3) years later.

So as of 2006, James W. Lauer had two (2) DUIs on his record.

Just four years later, in 2010, Lauer then scored another DUI ... his third.

His 4th DUI, only four years later, on Jan 19, 2014 should count as his 4th DUI.

DA Martin, I believe "reporter" Jaccii Farris and you got this wrong on 69 "News" on Friday evening when it was stated that James W. Lauer's Jan 19, 2014 DUI would count as his third DUI because of the "ten year look back" ...

Watch 69 "News" Report > Lauer 4X Legal Limit

Also, who authorized James W. Lauer's "afternoon furlough" (see page 6, Lauer DUI 3) to attend his son's wedding in 2010 while he was doing time in Lehigh County Prison for his 3rd DUI?

My hunch is that it was you, Jim.

If I could say you improved more than 100% I'd say it. You knocked the ball out of the park, and now everyone's interest is piqued. That is why BGW is having you back on so quickly. Bobby likes hard, black, concrete evidence. Just as in a college paper, get to the facts, as you did today.

In addition, you didn't sound like someone who had a chip on their shoulder. When BGW asked you if you had a vendetta against JM, you had the correct answer, in that maybe JM has a vendetta against you. Bravo, bravo.

Interesting & informative email back & forth with Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas Judge Maria L. Dantos, and actually just the final portion of it; it was a very lengthy back/forth that spanned several weeks.

FYI, had DA Jim Martin shown me this kind of consideration, I doubt I'd be the Jim Martin P.R. Nightmare I am today. But that's on Jim.

Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2014 12:38:31 pm

Subject: James W. Lauer > 10-Year "Look Back"

While I do not usually engage in this sort of communication, I will see this conversation through. For sentencing purposes, it does not matter whether it is his 3rd or 4th or 5th offense. The mandatory will be one year. His exposure is the statutory maximum, 2 ½ - 5 yeas. The Court is entitled to consider that this is his fourth offense and can go beyond the mandatory minimum. Because the legislators have chosen to allow DUI convictions to lapse, does not mean the Court hs to view these as if they never happened.

Now to answer your original question. The courts have interpreted the lapsing provision to mean ten years from the date of convictions, regardless of any intervening DUIs. I understand your logic and interpretation of the law, I am simply telling you the way this has been interpreted by the courts. For sentencing purpose ONLY, his first offense has lapsed. It certainly may be considered by the sentencing Judge. I hope this answers your question.

Maria

--------

((My Response))

This does answer my question, thank you Judge Dantos for your patience with me on this, and for the time you've spent in helping me to understand this albeit disappointing legalese better. I sincerely appreciate it, especially in light of how I've been ignored and disrespected and smeared and proactively punished for posing similarly legitimate questions to Judges Steinberg and Reibman, and to DA Jim Martin and his colluding pals in the local media.

I will be asking presiding Judge James Anthony (and DA Jim Martin) for 2-3 minutes to address the court at James W. Lauer's sentencing to respectfully request that Judge Anthony impose the maximum sentence of 2.5 to 5 years in state prison for Mr. Lauer and to send him to SCI Chester where they have a dedicated alcoholism treatment program. Except for Robert LaBarre, I can't think of another local drunk driver in recent memory who deserves the maximum sentence more than James W. Lauer does-- 4 DUIs, 2 interlock violations, a hit & run DUI that ejected 2 children onto the street and also injured a pregnant woman, while obviously learning nothing from multiple stints in County Prison that included kind considerations such as an "afternoon furlough" to attend his son's wedding. I've often wondered what it will take for a local judge to impose a maximum sentence on a drunk driver and it will be interesting to see if this is the case. I believe it should be.

Thank you again for your kind consideration, Judge Dantos, I really appreciated it.

Sincerest Best Regards,

Bill Villa

Hi Officer Jason, sorry I couldn't make it to Alfonso Todd's trial on 3/19 (and meet you in person), I was scheduled to have lunch with Bobby Gunther Walsh to discuss my next appearances on WAEB.

Please tell me if I'm reading the docket correctly, it looks to me like Alfonso ...

* Pled guilty

* Didn't get any well-deserved/long overdue jail time

* Incredibly still owes $252 from the $800-something balance he had agreed to pay via NorCo Judge Narlesky last April (and Alfundo receives no consequences for this scofflaw slacker delinquency)

* Needs a $20 biweekly payment plan to pay off the $252

* And so apparently his "marketing company" (wink wink) isn't doing all that well, eh?

Thanks for anything you can tell me.

I want to thank everyone who has supported my efforts--I made a mistake of reading the comments by molivinsky, and others and wow--some people really get nasty--he called the staff and parents the peanut gallery and that I was posturing and pandering--not true and that floored me--so, I blocked him. if you don't attend school board meetings then you don't know what really goes on--anyway--I appreciate your kindness and will continue to use social media as a way to get the message out although I would welcome a debate with the other board members at any given time. so again, we agree to disagree but must be informed--love my face book family

This fine blog really has it all. Facts and truth, absolutely, withstanding every challenge, tho they are indeed few. CONSEQUENCES, yes, (and that would be you, Bill!) for sure, at least until national exposé consequences like 60 minutes or prosecutorial teeth like a Federal judge weighs in on Team Martin/Morning Call. But more than that, this blog also has charisma, terrific design (that Molovinsky has tried lamely to copy with his LVS imitation sidebar), personality, always great writing, PLUS, terrific belly laugh comedy and just brilliant satire, with heart string pulls, and, ultimately, an unparalleled streak of undefeated victories. I can't think of another blog that's more informative, invigorating, scintillating, spot-on, EFFECTIVE, and entertaining than LVS! No wonder news reporters, college presidents and professors, cyber trolls, district attorneys and judges alike are hooked on it!

Subject: Socratic Gadfly

A gadfly is a person who upsets the status quo by posing upsetting or novel questions.

The term "gadfly" (Ancient Greek: μύωψ, mýops[1]) was used by Plato in the Apology[2] to describe Socrates's relationship of uncomfortable goad to the Athenian political scene, which he compared to a slow and dimwitted horse.

During his defense when on trial for his life, Socrates, according to Plato's writings, pointed out that dissent, like the gadfly, was easy to swat, but the cost to society of silencing individuals who were irritating could be very high. "If you kill a man like me, you will injure yourselves more than you will injure me," because his role was that of a gadfly, "to sting people and whip them into a fury, all in the service of truth." This may have been one of the earliest descriptions of gadfly ethics.

In modern politics, a gadfly is someone who persistently challenges people in positions of power, the status quo or a popular position.[3] For example, Morris Kline wrote "There is a function for the gadfly who poses questions that many specialists would like to overlook. Polemics are healthy."[4] The word may be uttered in a pejorative sense, while at the same time be accepted as a description of honourable work or civic duty.[5]

The Book of Jeremiah uses a similar analogy as a political metaphor. "Egypt is a very fair heifer; the gad-fly cometh, it cometh from the north." (46:20, Darby Bible)

Take this as a compliment!

Lehigh County District Attorney (for now) James B. Martin is spotted stalking LVS again.

DA Jim Martin will nervously stalk LVS dozens more times today, spending hours & hours reading LVS in the vain hope he'll find something here he can use against me to shut me up. Not a chance, Jim. I'm chasing you to the gates of hell, for Sheena, who you sided against. Big mistake.

But you keep lookin', Jimbo.

Good representative sample of the dozens I'm currently receiving and responding to.

Mr. Vila, I have been listening with great attention to all of your appearances with WAEB. Sir, I must say that you comes across on radio nothing like the obviously incorrect image of you that been portrayed in the local media by the likes of Bill White and within the local blogosphere (Molovinskli et al) that I religiously avoid like poison. You are reasonable, organized and well-spoken, polite, a good listener, always armed with the facts that shock and quite frankly compelling and mesmerizing. You and Bobby Gunther Walsh is the best news talk radio I've heard anywhere in decades. Is there any chance of getting a longer segment, say half an hour, and to appear each week? Needless to say I also admire your courage and your commitment to your community in telling what yove discovered on these local officials and reporters who are in cahoots and that you are explaining so very well. Keep up your remarkable work, sir. And know that you have my deep condolences for the loss of your daughter. One request, please do not reveal my name.

Readers (and stalkers) ...

There are (on average) 50,000 people listening to each of my Bill Villa Facts & Truth segments on WAEB News Talk Radio w/ Bobby Gunther Walsh.

That's about 49,850 more people than read the local blogosphere regularly. Just sayin'.

Best of all, by being on WAEB, I am speaking directly to many of the senior "Super Voters" who blindly (thanks to our local media) reelect Jim Martin every 4 years.

I believe there's an excellent chance most of them will vote for someone else for Lehigh County DA in 2015.

Even if one believes the LV blogosphere containing the Napoleon complexes does NOT have a crime problem, nor exhibit an abundance of unsavory human behavior, the public's perception it does is VERY strong (at least among the 150 people who read the blogs regularly). Too strong to simply dismiss away with words.

LVS and "WAEBV" has a real chance (thanks to 50,000 listeners across the county) to use its new 'look' to become a place people want to visit (and stalk). And, slowing Bill's momentum is going to be a very, long and hard road for the naysayers. This initial year of "WAEBV" will require significant police presence, over-the-top LVS StatMeter® spotlighting, and easy parking nearby (@ Facebook) for Villas supporters.

Any transformation of Lehigh County's crony-crookedness will require great effort and brilliance. It will take, at least, 7-8 months of positive 'vibes.' I'll be interested to see how all of this plays out.

Funny story, that I'll be telling on "WAEBV" soon.

I went to James W. Lauer's 8:30am arraignment yesterday morning. Around 9:15am they finally brought Mr. Lauer into court in prison garb and handcuffs. Lauer reminds me of Robert Blake; around 5'3", muscularly built, looks like he'd pick a fight quickly w/ anybody. Soon after, Chief Deputy DA (and, thanks to LVS exposé, spectacularly failed judicial candidate) Renee Smith came barreling into Judge Kelly Banach's courtroom 4B. Deputy DA Renee Smith commenced to cuddle in consultation with shackled criminal defendant James W. Lauer so closely, and so curiously, you'd think she was his defense attorney (or lover) and not the (wink wink) "prosecution." At this point, a matronly female courtroom assistant began speaking to Renee Smith concernedly and Smith turned around, looked directly at me sitting in the back of the courtroom, and I could see her mouth to the courtroom assistant, "YEAH, THAT'S HIM." Oh. I'm a famous celebrity, apparently. So pretty soon Deputy DA Renee Smith and defendant Lauer and a public defender approach the bench ... and for the next 10 minutes, Renee Smith conducts a whisper conference with Judge Banach. It went on for really really long, whisper whisper whisper. Finally, Judge Banach addressed defendant Lauer by saying, "Alright now, MR. VILLA ..." (!!!) to which DA Renee Smith blurted out, "That's MR. LAUER, Your Honor," as I raised my hand in court for a beet red-faced Judge Banach to make believe she didn't she. So ... I guess we know what the whisper conference was all about ... yours truly. LOL. How HYSTERICAL was this?! And how delicious is it that I am IN THEIR HEADS like this. BOO!

Subject: RE: James W. Lauer > 10-Year "Look Back"

While I do not usually engage in this sort of communication, I will see this conversation through. For sentencing purposes, it does not matter whether it is his 3rd or 4th or 5th offense. The mandatory will be one year. His exposure is the statutory maximum, 2 ½ - 5 yeas. The Court is entitled to consider that this is his fourth offense and can go beyond the mandatory minimum. Because the legislators have chosen to allow DUI convictions to lapse, does not mean the Court hs to view these as if they never happened.

Now to answer your original question. The courts have interpreted the lapsing provision to mean ten years from the date of convictions, regardless of any intervening DUIs. I understand your logic and interpretation of the law, I am simply telling you the way this has been interpreted by the courts. For sentencing purpose ONLY, his first offense has lapsed. It certainly may be considered by the sentencing Judge. I hope this answers your question.

This does answer my question, thank you Judge Dantos for your patience with me on this, and for the time you've spent in helping me to understand this albeit disappointing legalese better. I sincerely appreciate it, especially in light of how I've been ignored and disrespected and smeared and proactively punished for posing similarly legitimate questions to Judges Steinberg and Reibman, and to DA Jim Martin and his colluding pals in the local media.

I will be asking presiding Judge James Anthony [Editor's Note: Judge Anthony recused himself from the Lauer case, as did Judge Dantos, subsequently, as well] (and DA Jim Martin) for 2-3 minutes to address the court at James W. Lauer's sentencing to respectfully request that Judge Anthony impose the maximum sentence of 2.5 to 5 years in state prison for Mr. Lauer and to send him to SCI Chester where they have a dedicated alcoholism treatment program. Except for Robert LaBarre, I can't think of another local drunk driver in recent memory who deserves the maximum sentence more than James W. Lauer does-- 4 DUIs, 2 interlock violations, a hit & run DUI that ejected 2 children onto the street and also injured a pregnant woman, while obviously learning nothing from multiple stints in County Prison that included kind considerations such as an "afternoon furlough" to attend his son's wedding. I've often wondered what it will take for a local judge to impose a maximum sentence on a drunk driver and it will be interesting to see if this is the case. I believe it should be.

Thank you again for your kind consideration, Judge Dantos, I really appreciated it.

Sincerest Best Regards,

LVS/WAEBV is currently investigating a very curious case.

Amber Washko crashed into Joe Hennessey on May 27, 2013 and killed him.

No mention of DUI in any of the local "news" reports.

69 "News"

The "Express" Times

The Morning Call “newspaper”

Although Amber Washko wasn't arrested/charged until January 23, 2014, 8 months later, you'll notice the DUI on her Criminal Docket says May 27, 2013 ... same day she crashed into Joe Hennessey and killed him.

No mention of that death in the Criminal Docket.

A fan & friend directed me to this case on Facebook ...

--------

"Friends, keep me in your prayer's, June 16th the woman that killed my son while DUI is getting sentenced. Court will only charge her with a 1st time DUI, completely eliminating any justice for Joe's death. She is asking for ARD, please pray that she gets the maximum sentence & no ARD. The max for killing a person while drunk driving in this case is 3-6mos & losing license for 1yr. Thanks to our legal system, Joe's dad and I are getting a worse sentence. Life without our son, painful holidays, long sleepless nights, many visits to the cemetery, constant pain in our hearts. This for us is a life sentence."

I've reached out to [Name Redacted] asking if she'll speak with me and mentioning that, possibly, I would discuss her son's case on WAEB w/ Bobby Gunther Walsh.

Stay tuned ...

W-O-W. Great catch. Is this another example of a shapely (and drunk driving) young female being left off the hook by an enchanted DA Jim Martin? Remember Jennifer Gehringer? Twice the legal limit but Martin determined that didn't affect her reflexes or reaction time in killing John Toggas ...

Judge Ford, Amber Rae Washko killed Joe Hennessey while driving drunk at nearly twice the legal limit.

She needs to be held accountable for Joe Hennessey's death ...

certainly not given wrist-slap ARD

or a couple months in Lehigh County Prison with work release.

Amber Rae Washko needs to be charged with Vehicular Homicide While DUI.

I know a judge can't tell crooked, incompetent, and lazy DA Jim Martin what charges to file.

But I also know a judge can reject plea deals.

So here's what to do ...

Keep rejecting DA Jim Martin's Amber Rae Washko plea deal

until it includes a guilty plea to a charge of Vehicular Homicide While DUI.

And tune in tomorrow morning at 8:45am to WAEB AM 790, I'll be discussing the Amber Rae Washko case and Joe Hennessey in detail with Bobby Gunther Walsh for his 50,000 daily listeners, most of whom are registered super voters in Lehigh County.

Hi Bill,

I heard you on the radio and feel for the Hennessay family as well as you and your family on the loss of your daughter. I use to be an acquaintance of Amber's and know that it might be difficult to un-turn ever stone in ones story. Some facts may be helpful for the Hennessay family lawyer to know include things like her possible connection to the Allentown police/forensic office due to her internship through Cedar Crest College for her forensic science degree. Also, I have heard through mutual acquaintances that she may try to use a "I have a seizure disorder" defense but occasionally found to have been driving during her restriction period following the Hennessay accident. I wish to remain anonymous but your enthusiasm to find justice for the Hennessay family in conjunction with my desire to help the family prompted me to speak up to you about this. I wish much luck and success tomorrow for the family.

I was in "Judge" Ford's courtroom this morning for the Amber Washko sentencing which was moved to August 1. Except for Joe Hennessey's mom's courageous and articulate addressing of the court, it was a total disgrace all around, from "Judge" Ford's proactive covering of the APD's non-diligent ass, to assistant DA (doubling as Amber Washko's defense attorney) Steven Luksa (Washko's actual defense attorney Waldron "passed" when it was his turn to speak; that's how good a job DA Luksa did for defendant Washko), to APD "investigator" (wink wink) Dennis Dunkin' Donut Clemens.

On a related subject, rumored Cedar Crest College APD forensic dep't intern Amber Rae Washko has breathtakingly beautiful blonde hair that cascades all the way down her back and almost touches her shelf-like derriere and she's built like a brick shithouse.

The Morning Call "newspaper" sent a rookie reporter who was on her very first ever assignment ever to interview Joe Hennessey's mom afterwards. Basically she stood there holding a tape recorder and the only question she asked was how Joe Hennessey's mom spells her last name.

That's a huge discrepancy, 2.5 to 5 and/or 11.

On Monday, 7 of the 15 charges were plea bargained away/withdrawn (see attached docket).

So I'm really confused ... which is it, currently ...

"possibly more than 11 years" maximum?

or "2.5 to 5 years" maximum?

Thank you in advance for any clarity you can bring me here again, Judge Dantos.

Best Regards,

Readers (and stalkers) …

James W. Lauer (as notorious and as dangerous a drunk driver as we’ve ever seen in Lehigh County) pled guilty on Monday and now it’s Wednesday and still not a peep of coverage from notorious and dangerous truth concealers The Morning Call “newspaper” and 69 “News” … and all out of sheer spite because of WAEBV's ongoing coverage of this case. Sad.

69 "News" shamed by LVS into publishing this paltry (and Express-Times plagiarized) "report," still no coverage from The Morning Call "newspaper" ...

Subject: James W. Lauer Question

My apologies Mr. Villa. I have had some pressing matters. I will look at Lauer’s charges but it must be that there are additional charges beyond one count of DUI. The maximum for one count of DUI is 5 years. I have recused myself from all of Lauer’s cases as a result of our communication. I see our communication as a request for information and my responses. It may not be viewed this way by others. I will let you know what he is charged with.

((My Response))

Thank you, Judge Dantos, I've re-attached Mr. Lauer's latest criminal docket that lists all his current charges.

As always, I greatly appreciate your clarifications and communications with me, and no apologies re: the timing on your get-backs to me are ever required or expected.

I see our communications the same way you do, i.e., as requests for information and responses.

Paranoid controlling types like Jim Martin will just have to get over it, as I see it.

Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness.

I look forward to learning from you the maximum sentence exposure Mr. Lauer will be facing in front of Judge Banach on August 21.

Subject: James W. Lauer

Ok, according to the docket he pled to 7 counts. If his stated maximum exposure is 11 years, then some charges were to run concurrently and I am not privy to the details of the plea negotiations.

DUI M1 (maximum 5 years)

Accident involving Injury M1 (Maximum 5 years)

Accident while not properly licensed (Four counts) M2 (maximums for each 2 years)

Interlock violation

These maximums add up to 18 years as I see it so some are running concurrently. Hope this helps

--------

((My Response))

Yes, it does help, thank you again, Judge Dantos.

In my experience, our local media likes to wave around absolute maximum sentences, knowing full well the criminal defendant will serve much (much) less time when all is said and done and plea bargained and sentenced. But the "maximum sentence wave" makes their pal, our DA, look tough. He isn't, really. Mr. Martin plea bargains everything down and off his desk albeit at a snail's pace. And half the readers and viewers won't see or remember the actual sentence but they'll remember the higher profile "hardline stance" in the media. I've watched this charade play out over & over & over again, ever since I started paying close attention in the aftermath of my daughter Sheena's killing in March 2006.

I'll be shocked if on Aug 21 Judge Banach sentences James W. Lauer to serve 11 years in a state penitentiary.

And honestly, considering that Mr. Lauer has publicly admitted to having the disease of alcoholism, I don't believe his serving 11 overkill years in a state penitentiary--without treatment--would do him, or the Commonwealth, any good at all. And 11 years could also be unjustly self-serving, i.e., a way to make up for past sins of sentencing leniency against drunk drivers by taking it all out on James W. Lauer. And then afterwards ... back to county-wide DUI leniency business as usual via Jim Martin and Renee Smith.

Considering that this is erratic Lehigh County (present company excluded, of course), an outrageous 1-year minimum wrist-slap sentence from Judge Banach wouldn't surprise me either; I'd perceive that as an "F.U." from the bench directed to all who would dare question Lehigh County justice either privately or on local radio shows.

So personally, I'm still hoping for the maximum sentence you originally calculated for me ... 2.5 to 5 years ... and specifically, to be served in SCI Chester, where Mr. Lauer could benefit from (if he so chooses) ongoing treatment for his alcoholism. To me, this sentence still feels right.

Thank you again, Judge Dantos, I always greatly appreciate your clarifications & communications with me.

Enjoy the remainder of this excellent so far summer!

Best Regards,

Bill it should be crystal clear to anyone paying attention that you are making a big difference. The big difference between Jennifer Gehringer's 2 days in jail and Amber Washko's 3-6 months: you. The big difference between The Morning Call getting away with imposter reporters like Amerman and Gamiz and being shamed into hiring Lauren Schroeder: you. I say bravo to you. There's a big difference between what's goes on @ other Lehigh Valley blogs and what goes on here. Big difference. Keep making a big difference.

Again, I am so sorry for what happened to your daughter. I try not to participate in the blog and I am well aware of his history. Needless to say my last comments were the most accurate. He is a person who loves to agitate and stir the pot with half truths and innuendo.

((My Response))

Mayor Panto, first let me say how touched I am that you've responded so warmly and civilly to an email from me that came at you pretty hard and harshly. I especially appreciate your kind words about Sheena, thank you.

My (previous) beef with you, and with any elected official or person of position in the area who chooses to comment publicly (or anonymously) at the blog that shall not be named here, is that, by doing so, you (and they) bestow a totally undeserved measure of credibility to the mutant cretin "author" of that blog, and who, as you've put it so well, "agitates and stirs with pot with half-truths and innuendo," and I'd go farther and add things like dishonesty, fraud, deceit, misrepresentation, unauthorized activity, forgery, cover-up, conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice, illegal conduct, and moral turpitude.

Except for two (2), totally understandable and well-deserved exceptions, on 2/10/09 and again on 5/26/12, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski would not be caught dead commenting in our local blogosphere or responding in any way to the liars, miscreants, comment forgers, corrosive agitators, and nut cases who populate the local blogosphere beyond the verifiably factual and credibility-laden ‘velvet ropes’ of the Villa’s BNN Top Rated blog, Lehigh Valley Somebody.

We believe Mayor Pawlowski's comprehensive ignoring of the local blogosphere (w/ the only exceptional exception being "LVS") is a credo that should be followed by all elected officials and persons of position in the Lehigh Valley.

It is our hope that your credibility-bestowing and commenting days at that "hate blog" are now officially over.

Again, Mayor Panto, thanks very much for your kind and civil reply. You're always welcome here at LVS so please consider becoming a "commenting team member."

Best Regards,

Bill Villa

Readers (and stalkers) ...

I floated a few private Facebook messages out to some friends recently, regarding the Certified Mail I received recently from the Philadelphia law offices of Sprague & Sprague about ...

"Re: Defamatory Broadcasts on WAEB About James B. Martin, District Attorney of Lehigh County"

I got many wonderful messages of support back, here are just a few of them ...

--------

* I’m sad to hear this. Obviously you’re hitting the right nerve and they know people are listening and questioning what's going on. Your show provided your truth to a wider audience of people that are not on social media and they are afraid of that so I applaud you. However it saddens me because the odds are that clear channel and WAEB will rather make this go away rather than stand up to corruption and freedom of speech. What if anything can I do to help? I respect what you do. And sincerely; anything I can help with, you say the word because I too do not like scare tactics and the stifling of our constitutional rights especially by those who have sworn to uphold them.

* Bill, I'll be in PA for three or four weeks come 1 Sept. I'm available to go tell Martin and his Disney crew where to go f-ck themselves. It's not defamation if it's the truth. "Defamation" is a catchall term for any statement that hurts someone's reputation.

* Let him try, let the courts and lawyers hash it out; the burden of proof is on them.

* Somewhere in a parallel universe, WAEB, Clear Channel and Gunther all realize this is a RATINGS BONANZA, and keep you on the air for that reason alone.

* If at all possible, have your lawyer make sure it doesn't get tried in the same corrupt jurisdiction that you have so expertly exposed.

* Stay strong, old friend. His corpulent body, clogged arteries and swollen liver have slow, miserable [Redacted] written all over him. As you know tragically too well, only the good die young. Dickheads like this guy and [Redacted] will be rotting away slowly from the insides forever. History and Providence will not look kindly upon either.

* Awesome. Hopefully, the ACLU will make a federal case out of it. Literally. But I'm a big believer in picking one's battles. It was awful and heart wrenching, but in reality, you won your battle against Drunky LaBarre, and continue to assist others similarly victimized.

* Despite 'AEB's position, you have stirred the pot, and gotten maybe a few more people to look skeptically at the crony-connected corruption (if you'll pardon the alliteration). If you think back a few months, you were not on 'AEB at all, but managed to garner lots of support and pack courtrooms through LVS alone, so you haven't really lost anything - this is a net gain … I did enjoy where you and Gunther pointed-out that liberals and conservatives share common ground …

* … what is needed is some real opposition - someone young and intelligent who shares your sense of outrage and justice. There HAS to be some young attorney who is not yet part of the machine willing to run against him. But even if that never happens, his days are numbered. There is no way he can look like that a not fall over … [Redacted] soon. It will be a Monday morning at 9AM is my guess.

* Share freely, and keep fighting the good fight - time is on YOUR side, not his. All the best to you and Angie.

Bill Villa said...

Continued ...

* That bastard; obviously you hit a nerve.... It is sickening that this continues and he keeps pulling this kind of shit. Don't underestimate what you have achieved to date on the radio show. You said the ratings have been great so people have been listening. This is clearly a man who is a coward and has to hide behind his lawyers because he knows you know what is going on in his office and have put the spotlight directly on the situation and on him. Corrupt bastard. I just hope that the seeds you have planted through your radio show will grow and people will come to their senses and get the asshole out of office. I hate this is happening to you since you do have the RIGHT to free speech. Be proud of yourself and as you said you know you have told the truth. He is a sick and twisted man and has proved that over and over by his actions and this is just another example of what an ass he is. Hard to imagine how anyone can want to be associated with someone with such a lack of character. It is so weird when people like this are allowed to be in office. I hope the citizens will finally wake up and do something about this. And hopefully the station will stand behind you and piss on him and his threats. It is way overdue. Please keep me posted on this. I am sorry to hear this. Hang tough - you always do. You have a lot of people who believe in you!

* I am not sure how justice will be levied on him or when but I can't imagine that he will escape it forever. Justice for all his crap may manifest in many different ways. Karma is always there and eventually catches up to these types of people. Don't think of yourself as defamed; it probably feels that way but look who is pointing the finger - someone with no morals or character who has demonstrated that many times. I would venture to say he isn't respected but just due to the fact that he holds this position he bullies people. You are a very intelligent and articulate guy. I listened to your shows and you were great. It was obvious that you had done your homework and stated FACTS. No fiction, no spin on it - just the truth. That is what has this coward on the run; just remember that you have done a huge service to everyone by exposing him and others in your community and it is out there. I am sure you are making a difference no matter how big or small it may be. Don't feel defeated. You know that the truth is the thing that matters and you are a much better person than he or his gang could ever hope to be. They have no soul and are living pathetic lives. This guy is a waste of time and space. Is there anyone that can possibly run for this office that is a decent person? How many terms can this guy hold that position? He has such a strangle hold on the community... and the lemmings just keep jumping off the cliff. That seems to be how our fellow citizens do things. Anyway, I just hope you know that you HAVE made a difference and you know that all you have done is for the right reasons and you can be proud of that. You are a good man Bill Villa!

* Get OUT!!!! Geez Louise!! Billy, I listened to every one of your radio shows with Bobby Gunther Walsh. I did my own research on the case you spoke about. Verifiably truthful. Amazing! The Big Boy's Club has really put their foot in it this time. They have left themselves open for a counter suit for defamation of your character. What an asshole!!

* This is amazingly horrible--I can't believe that they would go to such great lengths unless they are so shamed based and are obviously caught in their lies--good for you--I would definitely contact the ACLU in Philadelphia--what a bunch of jerks—

* He is very mean, he is an elected official open for criticism, cannot believe he would have a case. Need a good lawyer to run. Against him, and retire him. Need to get facts about his finances, then expose him.

* You have obviously rattled his chain thoroughly, you have become a huge thorn in his side, and you have opened up many sets of eyes to his shady actions, BRAVO!!

Bill Villa said...

One more (from an attorney friend) ...

* He is a public figure. Standard to sue when you are a public figure is almost impossible to meet. His case will be thrown out.

Mrs. Dottie said...

Readers & stalkers ...

More thirst quenching Facebook messages of support for BV, Enjoy ;D

* Hi, Bill - sorry to hear about the continued unjustified hassle from the DAs office. Must be nice to get away with being a bully in public office. A true disgrace. Hope it works out for the best for you. Keep me posted on what happens. best regards, [Name Redacted]

* DAMN, what lengths will he go too?

* While I don’t profess to know much about the law, I can't see where any wrongdoing on your part has been done. If demanding the truth is a problem, which it seems it is, they have a serious problem. He makes himself look even worse if possible.

* Keep on doing what you've been doing so well … I'm with YOU!

* Prayer, in Jesus name that the truth comes out.

* That is just wrong. They [WAEB] must have had confidence in your facts before putting you on the air … I know you did lunch with Bobby before the whole project came together. I'm sure he had his input with the boss. I remember going back a bunch of years that Howard Stern had some problem with Clear Channel. It seems that when it comes to supporting either an air personality or a guest when it comes to their first amendment rights they run and hide. Good luck if it turns into a legal fight but I doubt they have a leg to stand on. DA ASSHOLE: we have that right because it is an opinion not defamation. He should be charged by the court for bringing a lawsuit with no merit.

* Always here. Keep up the good work. I know you have a rep and people look to you for help and to show up at their court dates. I wish I understood the freedom of information act like you. If I was not fighting a cause it would just be fun to find out what is being hidden from us.

* So who’s paying Sprague & Sprague? Butz? Jaindl? Fleck? Father Gambet? Joe Topper’s and JB Reilly’s PAC? Lehigh County taxpayers?

* I would not bet against you.

Bill, it must be very rewarding {delicious even} for you to know how brown-pants scared shitless that crooked coward Jim Martin is of you and your skills at articulating the most damaging of facts and truth about him. Of course he's bluffing; no way he gives you ANOTHER forum (civil court?) to expose him! I am hoping Clear Channel and WAEB doesn't blink and back down. Everybody at the courthouse is following this, but curiously, in the local blogosphere, mum's the word. What do you make of this? Inquiring minds want to know!

Bill Villa said...

"455," yes, knowing Jim Martin is so frightened of me is its own reward, although I have more rewarding plans for Jimbo in-progress, i.e., de-throning him in 2015.

Re: the usual Team Martin/Morning Call cyber harassment suspects being curiously M.I.A. (for now), I can only speculate that they've been asked (by DA Jim Martin) to refrain from drawing any attention to it, which (to me) is just another example of their collusion and DA Martin's lack of confidence in his (wink wink) "defamation" case. Martin just wants me off WAEB, ASAP. And he may achieve that. I'll just find another forum for de-throning him.

Stay tuned.

Bill, if Clear Channel isn't interested in verifying your facts and truth, I'm sure DA Jimbo's civil judge will be, (LOL) just sayin'.

Mr. Stevens,

Having grown up in Allentown, my earliest childhood memories revolved around WAEB, where I heard most of the entire history of pop music from Elvis through disco. I moved away from the Lehigh Valley in 1995, and have not been an active listener to WAEB for years.

Until now.

I have known Bill Villa for a few decades, and was aware of his family's tragic loss. You are making a gutsy decision by allowing the continuing dialog between Bill and Bobby Gunther Walsh - with whom I am also acquainted through the now-defunct Lehigh Valley Fitness Centers and the Trolley Station Mall in Easton. This is not just great radio, it is also happens to be the right thing to do.

I know you do not have an easy job accommodating listeners, advertisers and the rest of WAEB's stakeholders, so I just wanted you to know that your principled stand is admirable and impressive. You and Gunther should be justifiably proud. Well done.

Best wishes,

I spoke with Clear Channel Communications Litigations Counsel Donna Schneider yesterday. Donna has listened to my WAEB broadcasts and has concluded that everything I said on-air was protected free speech and opinion. Clear Channel's response to Sprague & Sprague will be that I have verifiably factual documentation to back up everything I've said on-air and that Clear Channel doubts that DA Jim Martin really wants to go to court. If he does, "SLAPP is where Clear Channel will go first," Donna Schneider told me.

Subject: Bill Villa is needed

Dear Mr. Stevens,
I am writing to urge you to keep having Bill Villa on the air with Bobby Gunter Walsh. With the atrocious way DUI cases have been handled by Mr. Martin and with how the news in Lehigh County media is so often heartlessly twisted, exaggerated, minimized or downright omitted at will, we are in sore need of a public interest spokesperson so dedicated to exposing these injustices and misuse of the media. We need to keep Bill Villa heard.

Mr. Martin's claim of defamation has no merit. It's bullying, it's old fashioned attempted intimidation, intimidation to which I am proud of Mr. Villa for not succumbing. Please don't let WAEB succumb either. What Mr. Villa has done is report the facts. What Mr. Martin fears is not defamation but exposure, exposure regarding how he has not been doing his job and exposure as to how he has left so many innocent people at risk, and exposure as to the preferential treatment allowed others. There simply is no excuse for how the DUI cases have been handled. I am sickened at how LaBarre, the young man who killed Sheena Villa, almost walked away, obviously because of who is father is. And to think that so many other drunk drivers continue to drive after injuring or killing someone, putting innocent lives at risk because Mr. Martin allows such long lengths of time go by before acting on these cases, is an atrocity. Can you just imagine finding our that you lost a loved one to a drunk driver, then realizing that the person responsible should have already been taken off the streets months ago, but instead was allowed to continue driving? Can you just imagine your rage at the injustice? Please allow Bill Villa to continue to speak out to inform others so that this miscarriage of justice, this disregard for the responsibilities to the public that a position such as Mr. Martin's carries, can be exposed and dealt with.

Mr. Bill Villa's delivery of the facts is clean, devoid of inflammation, and straight forward. We, your listeners, need Mr. Villa to keep speaking. I urge you to support his efforts, for the sake of all of us and our loved ones.

Respectfully,

[Name Redacted]

Gentlemen,

I am looking forward to hearing more programs featuring Mr Villa. WAEB has so far been the most objective credible talk radio I have yet to hear in the Lehigh Valley. I hope you continue to expose truthful facts concerning every elected official within your listening area. I myself have been a victim of the Lehigh County good ole boys. Although I am a conservative Republican I do not support the shenanigans of the district attorney in Lehigh County. Please continue to have Mr Villa and others like him in your programming because there are not many like him that can credibly articulate how corrupt Lehigh County is. If not for your listeners please do it to protect your children, grand children, and their children.

Regards,

Readers (and stalkers) ...

I am just now catching up on the many, MANY Facebook messages and emails I've been receiving in the past week or so in support of my continued Bill Villa Facts & Truth exposé appearances on WAEB AM 790 w/ Bobby Gunther Walsh. I can tell you that Craig Stevens and Bobby Gunther Walsh have no doubt received far (far) more than I have, as not everyone is sharing their outreach to WAEB w/ me.

And while each one I have received is a unique gem, and equally appreciated, I am choosing just a few to publish here at LVS, in some cases because of who wrote it, and in other cases because of what has been written in support of me.

However this all turns out ... THANK YOU ... to everyone who is supporting me.

Subject: Bill Villa Segment

Hello Craig and Bobby,

My name is [Name redacted], currently residing in [Location Redacted], and grew up in North Catasauqua, PA. I am writing you out of concern for a program that I have been able to listen to online, and have found out recently that certain members of the Political\Legal system in the Lehigh Valley have become disturbed enough by the content, that a suit has been threatened or has been filed. I am referring to Bill Villa’s highly informative, interesting and thought provoking time spent with Bobby Gunther Walsh. I was unlucky enough to deal with a situation involving another motorist, who as I learned later, had a connection to the DA’s office in Lehigh County. I thought the incident was so clear, cut and dry, that I could represent myself with just the truth and the facts. A South Whitehall Township police officer literally made up a story that had nothing to do with what had happened, and the incident turned around and came at me like a left hook. The story that was concocted, bought me a year suspension on my license, and insurance premiums that were so high, I had to put my car in storage to protect it, because I couldn’t afford the premium. It was ghastly expensive. After over a dozen attempts at contacting Cpl [Name Redacted], a South Whitehall Township office employee personally went to get Cpl [Name Redacted] to the phone. When I asked him why he did something so egregious and outrageous, his exact answer to me was “I can do anything I want”.

This is one of the reasons I feel Bill Villa’s experience with the political machine in Lehigh County has given him a voice that must be heard. Please don’t buckle to a paper lion bully. As a listener, I will be profoundly disappointed if you discontinue airing Bill Villa’s segment. I very much look forward to his next segments, and your response to the ill conceived, vacuous attempt at censorship. Thank you.

Best Regards,

[Name Redacted]

Bill’s determination to expose corrupt politics and “the good ole boy network” in the Lehigh Valley is unrivaled.

His persistence, and attention to detail is what the people need to be that constant thorn in their collective sides.

Please allow him to continue to expose the truth on your network. The citizens of this great community need the truth.

So please continue this platform so you can air the other side of the one sided stories we get continually get from the Morning Call and the media.

I want to hear more from Bill Villla. He is a defender of justice and much needed in Lehigh county. Much of our local media coverage has grown soft-...........meaning some of the media players write now only to please the advertisers and political power houses in town. We need real stories from those willing to tackle the status quo and ask tough questions. We need a Socratic gadfly like Villa to expose injustice, where ever that may be. Let's hear more from Villa! If we allow people like Villa to be silenced, we are all worse off for it. Throughout history we have seen remarkable change take place through the vision of a single soul. Let that voice be heard. Take us back to the days when big papers wrote exposes and political giants were kept in check by persistent truthful journalism. I would like to see a regular Villa broadcast. He's kinda like our own John Walsh! [Name Redacted]

I miss hearing Bill's stories on the air, and would love to have him back on the air, soon. I now know Martin is trying to silence him, and has been doing this for years. Martin is despicable and we need Bill on the radio to expose facts.

I listen faithfully online and am thrilled and reassured that such openness and transparency are still available somewhere in the world.

I feel Bill does an amazing job in shedding light on the subject and subjects he covers and you and Bobby Gunther Walsh do a first-rate job in setting the table for that to happen.

Cheers to you both, and with hope the station, the show and Bill Villa can continue for a long time to make good things happen.

There's a terrific comment (for now) at DA Jim Martin defender & apologist Paul Carpenter's lousy column on the "set-up" arrest of Chris Fitzgerald. Enjoy! BV

Harry J Shelhamer
Classic Paul Carpenter. A story with no journalistic quality. 100% boot licking. But what Paul fails to mention is the phony fraudulent lawsuit by a hired gun named Jason Pearlman of Sprague & Sprague in Philadelphia against clear channel communications and WAEB. The suit is apparently a defamation lawsuit against clear channel because a very credible local blogger was given some well deserved air time to discuss corruption and cronyism in the Lehigh County Distric Attorney's office. (Allegedly the DA's office refused air time to counter the facts leveled against his office.) The type of suit James B Martin hired this attorney (Jason Pearlman) to file on behalf of the Lehigh County District attorney is call a SLAPP (A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.) Yes this is a fact. Mr Carpenter knew about the SLAPP lawsuit long before he wrote this column. So my question to Mr Carpenter is why didn't you mention DA James B Martins lawsuit? Jason Pearlman is a cash for hire attorney hired by James B martin to censor free speech. What makes Mr McMahon worse than Jason Pearlman? An abortion doctor is no hero to me. However an attorney that works to defend a criminal is far more credible and respectable than a licensed attorney (Jason Pearlman) that will take money to censor free speech. If it wasn't for the freedom of speech we wouldn't be having this conversation. I can understand why this column was written. I just can't understand why it was written by an American journalist. Paul, Can you help us understand your reasoning? I don't think we are in North Korean territory. Or are we?

TRUTH CONCEALING COLLUSION DEPARTMENT

Our truth-concealing and colluding local media has not printed one word on DA Jim Martin's "defamation" SLAPP bluff via the Sprague & Sprague law firm in Philadelphia that's intended solely to silence my free speech and keep me and my facts off of WAEB.

My thanks to Harry J Shelhamer for throwing this fact in Paul Carpenter's face like a pie.

Hello,

I am touching base with you today regarding Bobby Gunther Walsh's show. Less than a month ago I heard that last of a series of segments on his show featuring Bill Villa exposing injustices and cover-ups in the local government and media. I will admit I am not much of a radio listener but when I heard these segments I, a) wished they had been longer, and b) wanted the next one to be sooner. Now it seems that neither will be the case?

I think if more people pulled their heads from the sand and paid attention to the actions of those who hold the power, they would have to be more honest and accountable. It's not a perfect world, but I think Bill Villa is one person working on making it a more honest one, if only locally. I hope you will have him back on again, soon.

Thanks,

Guys hi, my first time back on WAEB we should (my opinion) exhaustively cover the DA Jim Martin "defamation" bluff/ruse, because even though our local media has purposefully not reported on it (and that's 10 minutes right there), thanks to Philly's The Legal Intelligencer, and social media (Facebook), lots of people know about it ... and it's snow-balling ...

Bill Villa
610.428.1253

Bill Villa said...

Readers (and stalkers) ...

I'll always be grateful to WAEB's Bobby Gunther Walsh for his courage in having me on-air with him, 11 times, from February 20 through August 4 of this year.

Thanks to Bobby Gunther Walsh, I got a LOT of verifiably factual and damaging truth out there on DA Jim Martin and his crony-crooked and colluding local media lapdogs at The Morning Call "newspaper," 69 "News," and The "Express"-Times.

I'm hoping Gunther shows us all even more courage by persuading his boss Craig Stevens to okay him inviting me back on-air to pick up where he and I left off on August 4.

Even WAEB's parent company Clear Channel Communications knows that DA Jim Martin's "defamation" threat is a total bluff, without any merit, and that its only purpose was to scare WAEB into banning me.

So far, it seems to be working. Despite hundreds of emails from my supporters to Craig Stevens urging him to put me back on the air, I have yet to be invited back.

So I'm endeavoring diligently to turn the tables on everyone here (DA Jim Martin, WAEB/Craig Stevens, and our truth-concealing local media), by getting out-of-town media to report on what DA Martin is perpetrating against me here-- an outrageously power-abusive and malicious muzzling of my free speech.

That's NEWS. Even though our local media is concealing the story.

I have some intent interest percolating at several major media outlets. I'm hoping to blow Jim Martin out of the water with it, expose him, and de-throne him.

Doing this would certainly be easier with WAEB's continued courageous help, but I don't need it to accomplish what I'm after.

And it's WAEB's choice regarding how they'll be depicted in these upcoming news coverages-- as courageous (by having me back on the air) or as cowards, who recruited me for a knowingly risky broadcast series, and then ran for the hills when DA Jim Martin responded with .. nothing .. really.

"Defamation?" Come on. As an elected official, the burden of proof on DA Jim Martin is that he'd have to prove I told outright lies on the air, knowing they were lies as I was telling them. Good luck with that ... and I'll use a courtroom forum against Jim Martin anytime he wants to give me one. Just don't expect our local media to cover it.

Bill, I want to tell you that I am proud of who you are and I know that countless others feel the same way.

I don't understand why things have gone the way they have when you are doing everything you can to make your community a better place.

I can only think that there are a lot of cowards out there who can't "man up" and tell the truth.

I admire you and I understand how this would make you sad but hope that you will reflect on the fact that so many people believe in you.

You have made a difference and as I have said before you should be proud of yourself. You never backed down. The lack of character of others is so frustrating but there are people in this world that will never change, don't want to change or are afraid to change. And of course there are the people who will never understand that they are on the wrong course. Some are just stupid people.

So, invest in positive non-toxic people who will bring value to this world we share.

You are a great person and you will continue to do great things, I am sure of that!

Keep the good people in your life and discard the toxic people.

I hope you know how many people love and respect you.

I am one of them!

BIG IDEA DEPARTMENT

FYI: I'm currently circulating this among my numerous friends in local college, community, and commercial radio ...

My broadcast concept (multiple local DJs from multiple local stations all airing me and allying as push back against a power-abusive DA who's into muzzling critical free speech) would be a story that could get national attention, i.e., good publicity for all of us. I'd certainly be pitching it (real hard) nationally. I could boil it down to probably 7-8 minutes and we could PRE-RECORD IT, so the message is uniform and defamation-free. I'd still appear on-air live with each DJ for some color commentary (and heck, maybe a Villas spin too even), but the exposé part could (and probably should) be on "tape." We could even have legal preview it prior. Just some thoughts ...

An Old Friend said...

W-O-W! And OMG! What an excellent idea! On so many levels. Great solution. Great resolution. Turns (wink wink) "defamation" into a hysterical whack-a-mole challenge for DA Jimbo, while exposing Martin's malicious muzzling, WAEB's cowardice, and the local media's truth-concealing of the whole thing. Truly brilliant, BV!

Merci. Stay tuned ...

"W-O-W!" "OMG!" "excellent idea" "hysterical whack-a-mole challenge" "Truly brilliant, BV!"

Bill Villa said...

Gotta say ... I'm really lovin' my idea of multiple local DJs on multiple local stations all giving me 10 minutes to air a pre-recorded (and cleared by legal) exposé on how DA Jim Martin succeeded in muzzling my free speech on WAEB without having to cite any wrongdoing by anybody; how WAEB threw me under the bus and ran for the hills at this transparent bluff; and, most importantly, how The Morning Call "newspaper," 69 'News," and The "Express"-Times are all refusing to tell their audiences about what DA Jim Martin has perpetrated against me, to protect him, even though out-of-town media is covering it. While on the air with multiple local DJs, I wouldn't get into any or much of my verifiably factual WAEB content that triggered DA Jim Martin's fear and his "defamation" bluff; people can hear that 'terrific radio' @ YouTube if they're interested. The more relevant story here is how a frightened-of-the-truth-getting-out DA Jim Martin can silence a legitimate critic's free speech and how our local mainstream media is not reporting on it, to shield DA Martin from voter scrutiny. This is about free speech and abuse of power and truth-concealing media. Local college and community radio DJs and program directors should be lining up to participate in all giving me 10 minutes of air time, unless they're all okay with rigged censorship of free speech radio content. There's strength in numbers, and in unity there is strength. What a dramatic and cool way to take a stand against power-abusing DA Jim Martin and his crony-crooked lapdog local media, while taking a stand for free speech. Program directors and DJs with a social conscience and a backbone can phone me at 610.428.1253, thanks.

READING BETWEEN THE LINES DEPARTMENT

Analyzing The Morning Call “newspaper” article:

Families blame Lehigh County Jail inmates' deaths on staff

Readers (and stalkers) …

I read Sunday's Peter Hall article. Reads to me like Team DA Jim Martin wanted to get everything out there before somebody else does, like the Philly papers, possibly, that have been scooping them recently. While I was surprised they even mentioned anything suspicious, overall it seemed like they wanted to overwhelm and confuse readers with medical details and theories from both sides of the story while definitely giving DA Jim Martin a halo of immunity from any wrongdoing here. They also seemed to give Lehigh County Prison an escape route via blaming their outside vendor healthcare provider. Tellingly, the least amount of ink was given to anything having to do with excessive force by prison guards. Mostly the article struck me as The Morning Call "newspaper" covering their own asses, concerned that they'll be exposed as the truth-concealers they are if this story breaks regionally or nationally with them not having printed a word on it since Aug 2013, like, for instance, the DA Jim Martin WAEB "defamation" story they've been purposefully ignoring since Aug 1, 2014.

It's not every day that a district attorney threatens a "defamation" lawsuit against a private citizen, and crime victim, and grieving father, who made 11 appearances on a talk radio station; this seems like news to me, and obviously it was perceived as being newsworthy by Philadelphia's The Legal Intelligencer and The Vermont Eagle, too (see attached coverages).

You're most welcome, Bill!

Good Morning,

You are being contacted because of your previous communications supporting Senator Farnese’s Anti-SLAPP proposal in Pennsylvania (SB 1095 of the 2013/14 legislative session). Thank you for your interest in this important issue.

In an effort to create broader awareness of the problem of SLAPP lawsuits in communities and among legislators around the state, Senator Farnese’s office, in conjunction with the Crosstown Coalition in Philadelphia, is looking for the continued support of individuals and organizations like you who would be willing to advocate on behalf of passage of an anti-SLAPP statute.

Senator Farnese will reintroduce an amended version of his bill after the New Year that includes rewrites to strengthen the scope and practical application of the law. As soon as we have the final draft in hand, we will share it with the group.

Once we move into January, we'd like to use email as a way to openly discuss advocacy and movement of the legislation.

Thank you for your anti-SLAPP efforts and interest to this point. We look forward to working with you in the coming year.

Sincerely,
