Alone, Abandoned, Pitiful!
Josephine O’Connor’s father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey, appeared today in Bethlehem Town Court, before the same judge who arraigned Tracey on May 25, 2012, Judge Mark S. Jordan, Bethlehem Town Justice, and the same judge who imposed the Order of Protection on Tracey, ordering him to stay away from John Vadney and Vadney’s family, and that same court order that Tracey had the Coeymans Police violate, and which Tracey himself violated the very next day.
Say what you will, but it does cut a pitiful picture to have sat with a small contingent of supporters of John Vadney, and to have had to see the scapegoat lumber up to the bench with just his lawyer as support. Even his own daughter, Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, didn’t have the decency to show up to be at her father’s side, the very man who got sucked into defending her idiotic ego. There he was, a hulk of a man looking pretty ragged even in a suit, a big guy, but his sheer size makes his whole story incredible. No Coeymanazies, no daughter, just the scapegoat. It really tugged at the heart strings, even if you are disgusted by the things he’s done and the company he keeps, there was something noble in what he thought he was doing, something even parental. I had to try very hard to keep justice in mind when pastoral compassion was threatening to get the upper hand.
Keeping this relatively short, Tracey’s attorney–you have to wonder who’s paying for her! Do you think Josephine is helping out with the bill? Or the Coeymanazies? Better check the Coeymans Police petty cash, it might come up short this month! Well, Tracey’s attorney stated her own version of the facts, which were naturally very strange, especially so, since Judge Jordan is familiar with the facts of June 25th. Didn’t do much for Tracey, though.
Judge Jordan, listened patiently, asked a couple of questions, and agreed to postpone Tracey’s trial. Judge Jordan also extended the Order of Protection until at least September 18, 2012.
Thank you Judge Jordan!
[Editor’s Note: It was refreshing to observe the Jordan court move through the cases with efficiency, respect, and compassion. Jordan greeted each party with respect, explained to each one appearing before him what the charges meant. Judge Jordan has finesse and people skills. I personally was impressed.]
