The Charges

criminal chargesPL  140.05 Trespass
A person is guilty of trespass when he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in or upon premises.
PL 145.00(3) Criminal Mischief 4th
A person is guilty of criminal mischief in the fourth degree when, having no right to do so nor any reasonable ground to believe that he or she has such right, he or she: Recklessly damages property of another person in an amount exceeding two hundred dollars.
PL 155.30 Grand Larceny 4th
A person is guilty of Grand Larceny in the fourth degree when he steals property and when the value of the property exceeds one hundred dollars and the property consists of a motor vehicle, as defined under section one hundred twenty-five of the vehicle and traffic law, other than a motorcycle, as defined in section one hundred twenty-three of such law.

Background

screenplayIn their depositions, the victims state that Scott M. Lendin was told to leave the victims’ property and to stay away. Lendin trespassed and committed the other alleged crimes. The depositions allege that Lendin, while trespassing and attempting to remove a motor vehicle from the victim’s property, damaged several other vehicles, amounting to more than $1200 in repairs, and that Lendin, while trespassing, stole a motor vehicle from the victims’ property.
On information and belief, Lendin also stole a computer from a construction vehicle belonging to a local construction company. On investigation the theft was confirmed. Lendin installed the computer in a similar vehicle and sold that vehicle. He was never charged with the theft (the company made an insurance claim, got paid, and didn’t follow up. Neither did the police!).

A disturbing aspect of this case is the fact that Lendin allegedly bragged to local business owners about what he had done, claiming he’d never be caught and that he had friends in the Bethlehem police department.

Another disturbing aspect of this case is the fact that the case was in Steve Prokrym’s hands but somewhere along the line it was reassigned to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, with the approval of his boss, DoDo-Cop Gregory Darlington, could sit on a case for months, obstructing justice, and not be disciplined, fired, or brought up on criminal obstruction charges! But it seems to us that there was a conspiracy in progress and Deluca was the one to make sure the retaliation was effective. How does that work? Would it work for you or me? And what about the cops who knew what was going on, all about the retaliation etc., Contento, Crosier, and others? Weren’t they obstructing justice?

Is Kerry Thompson a Mole in the Sheriff's Department?

Is Kerry Thompson a Mole in the Sheriff’s Department?

And then there’s the mole in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, Kerry Thompson, who is Gregory “DoDo-Cop” Darlington’s personal assistant and married to Darlington’s sister. Smell a rat or a whole nest of them yet?

Yes! We should remove that mole!

Yes! We should remove that mole!

And what about the theft of the computer from Fink’s? The police know about that but haven’t gone after Lendin. Facts are the computer was stolen, Finks knew about it and filed an insurance claim and got paid. Lendin allegedly admits to the theft. Why doesn’t the insurance company go after Lendin to recover for the amount paid in the claim? Have Lendin arrested and charged? What’s going on here? In fact, we have received unconfirmed reports that the actual bulldozer (and the computer?) are on Scott Lendin’s property at this very time! Where are the police investigators now?

The Outrageous Events

The Failure of the Coeymans Police Department: The Coeymans Police Department managed to take the complaint, but sat on it for months despite numerous calls to chief Gregory Darlington and others in the Coeymans P.D., even to supervisor Stephen Flach. According to a member of the Coeymans P.D., Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca sat on the paperwork for months and did nothing.

The Intervention of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department: Thanks to the professionals in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department under the leadership of Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, the Coeymans police department was forced to do something. If it weren’t for Sheriff Craig Apple and investigators Eric Barnes, William Rice, Mark DeFrancesco the victims’ rights would have amounted to zilch, nada, zero, and the perp, Scott Lendin, with his “friends in law enforcement” would have walked…thanks to Coeymans town Justice Phillip A. Crandall and the bozos at the Albany DA’s office, Lendin pretty much walked anyway.

The Charging, Arraignment and Arrest of Scott Lendin: Despite having taken the complaint and after Jerry Deluca sat on it for months, the perp Scott Lendin, was finally charged, arraigned and arrested. But that was only after the victims asked the Albany County Sheriff to get involved.

The Albany County District Attorney’s Plea Bargain: After all was said and done, and after more than a full year had lapsed, it took the bozos from the Albany County District Attorney’s office and a no-balls Coeymans judge to violate every orifice Lady Justice owns. P. David Soares treated Lady Justice like a common whore, and Coeymans town justice held her down while assistant DAs Weafer and Sharp had their way with her. Shame on you! Scott Lendin and his friends in law enforcement (Deluca, Darlington) stood by and snickered. Coeymans town Supervisor Stephen Flach  stood by and made believe nothing was happening.

no-balls-no-brilliance-Phillip A. Crandall’s Acceptance of the Plea: Coeymans town justice Phillip A. Crandall made a mockery of the judiciary and of his oath of office by sitting on the case knowing that there were local politics and agendas involved. Crandall is just as much a criminal as Soares, Weafer, Sharp, Deluca and Darlington are. They were all involved in a scandalous conspiracy to pervert justice. This was a clear example of abuse of, misuse of the public’s trust, and a corruption of public office.

The Release on a Ridiculously Reduced Charge: So you have a self-confessed thief on the loose, thanks to the Coeymans Police Department, the Albany County DA, and the Coeymans town court, the dishonorable Phillip A Crandall, presiding.

What message does that send to the rest of us when we know that someone can come on your property multiple times after being thrown off, to steal your property and, while perpetrating the theft, damages other property, and who admits yet another theft yet goes free as a bird? What does that mean to this community?

cryng libertyThe Abandonment of the Victims’ Rights: The business operators and property owners in the town of Coeymans, the victims, taxpayers to the max, people who support the Coeymans and greater regional community, have been abused by the very agencies whose salaries they are paying: the Coeymans P.D., the town of Coeymans administration, the Coeymans town court and its bozo Coeymans town  justices. That’s a real engraved invitation to business to stay out of the area, don’t you think so? Who’d want to go through all of that and then pay our property, school, and other taxes? With Soares and his monkeys in Albany, and with the thugs in the Coeymans police department, and the no-balls Coeymans town justices, the law-abiding resident, much less the business owner in the town of Coeymans, don’t have the chances of a snowball in hell!

But there was also a caseworker from the Crime Victim and Sexual Violence Center,  a Bernard Amador, who was supposed to be coordinating restitution for the losses caused to the victims by the thief, Scott Lendin. That part of it was also screwed up by the Coeymans police department when they couldn’t figure out the amount of the damages, despite the fact they had it in the complaint documents. So, the make it easy on their dumbasses, they simply reported “more than $1” ( the actual amount of damage done to property was more than $1200!). Assistant DA Stephen Sharpe was just as big a dimwit as the Coeymans cops! So, after all is said and done, Bernard Amador derailed and crashed, too! All of these morons and idiots are being paid by taxpayers!

The Conclusion

First of all, the Coeymans police department under it incompetent chief Gregory Darlington fell flat on their fat faces and, again, were a scandalous embarrassment to this community, and to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and to the New York State Police, and to law enforcement, generally. It’s a rotten shame that the few decent cops in the Coeymans police department have to carry the stench of Darlington, Deluca, Thompson, Johnson bobos in the department. But, as the saying goes, you lie with dogs you wake up with fleas. Sorry boys!

cut throatThe fact that Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca a.k.a. BoBo-Cop, sat on the case and the paperwork lay on his desk for more than 3 months without him having lifted a fat finger would be grounds enough anywhere else to can his fat ass. But in Coeymans, under DoDo-Cop Darlington and the impotent and feeble mindless “leadership” in the town of Coeymans Deluca got away with his passive retaliation, that is, until outside professionals were brought in.

It is to the great credit of Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, and his detectives, investigators, and deputies, that he was able to get involved and, despite having his hands tied by jurisdictional courtesies, was able to shake up the Coeymans police department and get Dodo-Cop Darlington to start doing some chiefing and get his team of bobos off their triple-digit asses, and catch a criminal. Sheriff Apple got right on the case and assigned real professionals to start the investigation that the Coeymans police department was either unable or unwilling to do. Only after Apple’s department and personnel were involved did the investigation start, the warrants issued, and the perp, Scott Lendin, apprehended, arrained…but that’s where it got dicey, thanks to the Albany County DA P[udenda] David Soares, assistant DA Kenneth C. Weafer, assistant DA Stephen M. Sharp, and local shysters Michael J. Biscone (Ravena) and Brian W. Devane (Delmar) managed to intimidate local town justices George Dardiani and Phillip Crandall. Soares’ little gremlins Weafer and Sharp managed to further damage the community’s confidence in law enforcement and in the justice system by playing into the hands of the criminal and telling the victims to take a hike. The arranged a plea bargain and never even communicated to the victims what was going on. The Coeymans police were just as stupid because they managed to screw everything up from the very start, but couldn’t even get the paperwork right even after three attempts!

So, when the perp, Scott Lendin was finally brought in to face the charges of trespass, criminal mischief, and grand larceny, he had already been dumped by the shyster Michael Biscone, and was represented by shyster Devane. Meanwhile, the DA’s office was totally confused and one hand didn’t know what the other was doing, so they did what they do best: help their friends (the criminals) and make a deal.

Do you really need a caption?

 When assistant DA Stephen M. Sharp was asked by the victims after the plea bargain was accepted by Coeymans town justice, Sharp’s reply was: “I don’t know anything about it.” Makes you want to ask then, “What in hell are you doing here, then? Who does?” Apparently, assistant DA Kenneth C. Weafer was on the case, left the DA’s office, and somewhere along the line Sharp was assigned to the case…and did NOTHING. There you are! P[udenda] David Soares, the Dodo-DA, at his best and at the taxpayers’ expense. [Monkey] Business as usual.

But no-balls Phillip Crandall, the judge on the case, dropped the ball all together. How could Crandall, having been involved in the case once it had started moving, after Coeymans town justice Dardiani got a mouthful from shyster Michael Biscone, who refused to bring in his client because the Coeymans police had screwed up the paperwork (according to a reliable source in the Coeymans police department who asked to remain unidentified, there was no problem with the paperwork…they had their “orders” and had to do what they were told). No-balls George Dardiani took it like a real wimp, and Biscone and Lendin went free for another day. Dardiani subsequently was no longer on the case when no-balls Crandall came on board.
So, after all was said and done. The perp walks, and the DA tells the victims that they have to go after Lendin in civil court to recover their damages. Great work DA DoDo’s.
Meanwhile, the Coeymans police are going after old ladies, pretty girls, and rowdy high-school kids. And you, the taxpayers of this community, are footing the bill for shoddy amateur police work, retaliation, intimidation to the tune of about $1,000,000 a year. Makes you feel real good, doesn’t it?

Epilogue

This is bizarre: Where was the Police Blotter entry on this crime and botched investigation? We don’t seem to be able to find it in the News Herald or anywhere! And where was the local media coverage. There were police all over the place once the Sheriff got involved. No Times Useless. No News Herald. No News 6, 10, 13. No reporters and cameras showing up for the arraignment of a real criminal! Why was that? Don’t you wonder why the place is lousy with reporters in some minor instances but in others, they’re nowhere to be found? Looks like the news media is in cahoots with the DA and the other criminals in the county. [Editor’s Note: If any of our readers saw a report in any local news media, please let us know. We’d be very interested in correcting our inability to find anything.]

no-justicePhillip A. Crandall has a reputation for being some sort of religious crusader and is attracting some criticism that his version of Christian practice is to go easy on criminals. That’s not how it works, Philly! Perhaps if you had any knowledge of jurisprudence or of the law or of judicial ethics you’d know that your sole function is to interpret the law fairly and impartially. Fairly and impartially means you leave all of your personal baggage at the door when you put on the robes of the judiciary. You took an oath of office and if you can’t do the job, then RESIGN!

Same goes for Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach. If you can’t leave your pulpit and be a tough administrator, then RESIGN, Stevey. You have taken an oath of office and if you can’t fill the shoes and get tough with the town employees and other officials, including your own town board, the Coeymans police department and the town courts and their dizzy town justices, then RESIGN.

But after all is said and done, there is a bright side, a positive side. While they may have turned a petty, small time thief loose, at least we know about Scott Lendin, he’s a marked man now. So the bright side, the good news is that at least we have all the real criminals consolidated in places where we can keep a close watch on them. The real criminals are all together in two places: the Office of the Albany County District Attorney and the Coeymans Police Department.

Postscript

Logo_PSOur readers will recall that we reported on the harassment of a local woman business owner by Joseph Tracey, Josephine Tracey-O’Connor’s demented father, over Josie’s “He called-me-fat-dance” at the high-school last May. We shared with you the fact that when the woman tried to file a complaint against Joe Tracey, Coeymans police chief Darlington’s “personal assistant” Kerry Thompson refused to take the complaint. In confidence, a female Coeymans police officer, who requested to remain anonymous, allegedly contacted the victim and told her Thompson should have, had to take the complaint and that she, the officer, was going to put the information in the file. Wonder where that file ended up? Any ideas, Jerry Deluca? How about you, Gregory Darlington?
