Alan Hootnick,

Stephen Gianelli has criminally harassed me since May 2009.  At that time, Michelle Blaine, Sprocket, and others were posting on his Blogonaut Law Blog.  I posted and I've captured all of that evidence so Gianelli cannot lie about it.  I also forwarded it to others.  He has now, as I suspected removed that blog, and lies about these issues.  According to Gianelli, he heard from Michelle Rice at that time. I suppose that's why he contacted me (and separately, my son) using the assumed name "Joff Belark."  "Joff Belark" was evidently a journalist.  I bcc'd IRS and others on my responses.  Gianelli, or rather Joff Belark" then proceeded to post an entirely slanderous and highly inflammatory article about me on his law blog arguing Leonard Cohen's legal positions and defending him.  Gianelli has worked in tandem with Michelle Blaine, Susanne Walsh (Cohen's fan), and others.  He posts Spector prosecution theories online as was recently evident on Truth Sentinel.  Investigator William Frayeh, DA's office, felt Gianelli may have found a sympathetic ear with Alan Jackson about me.  Gianelli also writes and lies to government agencies about me.  That would include the City Attorney of Los Angeles.  I have therefore been forced to address his slander, defamation, libel, bald-faced lies, and vicious attacks.  

Gianelli has clearly read an email I posted on my blog where I asked Dennis Riordan which version of Cohen's gun story about Phil Spector he believes.  There are now three versions of Cohen's good rock 'n roll gun story before LA Superior Court.  It's not Gianelli's business but he attempts to insert himself into these matters.  Everyone who recorded with Phillip does not have a gun story.  That would include Hal Blaine who worked with Phil Spector for 37 years and never once saw him in the studio with a gun.  

I didn't mention Phil Spector's indictment or conviction.  I mentioned Cohen's testimony during my trial - about Phil Spector and a gun.

I don't know if Cohen testified before the Grand Jury or not.  I spoke with the Grand Jury's Legal Adviser and she didn't know what witness presented that testimony.  Mick Brown reviewed the Grand Jury transcripts and advised me that Cohen's testimony or statements were presented to the Grand Jury.  I know one version of Cohen's gun story was included in prosecution motions in the Spector case.  I don't think Cohen's gun story would have helped Phil Spector's defense and that statement is obviously blatantly false.  It's fascinating that Phil Spector never pulled a gun on Paulette Brandt.  She dated him throughout the years.  She worked inside his Pasadena house.  And she worked with him until 2002.  

Leonard Cohen did speak to detectives and I intend to obtain a copy of that report.  Cohen wrote the prosecutor about his statements to LA Sheriff's Department and set forth one of the gun stories in that email.  His testimony differed.  And his testimony completely contradicted the alleged gun story he testified about during my trial.  

I believe there may have been a quid pro quo and my trial appeared to be part of that.  I didn't embezzle from Cohen.  The evidence doesn't support Cohen's fabricated narrative.  Leonard Cohen is the individual who has embezzled from the corporate entities.  That would include approximately $6.7 million in loans/expenditures from Traditional Holdings, LLC alone.  Cohen has taken the fascinating legal position that he is the alter ego of these entities who engaged in self-dealing, co-mingling and money laundering.  The District Attorney and City Attorney aligned themselves in targeting me.  The City Attorney proceeded to lie to jurors about federal tax matters.  And, the City Attorney essentially argued that Leonard Cohen's own conduct annoys him.  I was never Cohen's lover and am absolutely in need of IRS required tax and corporate information.  Cohen testified that I have that information but IRS and FTB do not have it so that proves his testimony is perjured.  I don't have it and it wasn't transmitted, as required, to IRS and/or FTB.

Cohen's testimony occurred during the DA's re-election campaign.  Alan Jackson and City Attorney Carmen Trutanich were running.  David Mamet had recently come out publicly and stated that he felt Phil Spector was railroaded.  His film, which received tremendous press, included actors Al Pacino and Helen Mirren.  It helped to have Cohen on the stand testifying that Phil Spector held a gun on him.

In any event, I wrote Truc Do (and then Dennis Riordan) about a book I am writing and asked her for an interview.  Gianelli has attempted to insert himself into this dialogue.  He appears to be moonlighting for Phil Spector's prosecutors and an unofficial member of Leonard Cohen's legal team.

Let me know if you have any questions.  This man, the Criminal Stalker Gianelli, belongs in prison.

Ms. Lynch,

Regarding Leonard Cohen’s Phil Spector gun story (everyone who recorded with him has one, apparently) and the different reported versions thereof – who cares?

Notwithstanding your strained (to say the least) attempt to lay Phil Spector’s indictment on murder charges  and subsequent conviction (two jury trials later) at Cohen’s feet, Leonard Cohen had absolutely NOTHING to do with either the indictment or the conviction for second degree murder.

Leonard Cohen did not testify before the grand jury. He did not testify at the trial or the retrial resulting in the conviction. The prosecution theory was that Spector has a habit and history of pulling guns on WOMEN who refuse his advances. Alleged instances wherein Spector pulled a gun on MALES would tend to REBUT the prosecution’s theory of the case, not enhance it. That is exactly why the defense called as a witness a MAN who testified that Spector pulled a gun on him! Cohen’s story would have HELPED the defense, not hurt it. But the bottom line is the jury never heard it.

You would like Cohen’s “gun story” to be the central, pivotal fact but the truth is that anything Leonard Cohen told investigators (and you don’t even know what that was, you were not present) was totally and completely irrelevant to the outcome of the grand jury proceedings or the conviction. (Indeed, there was zero mention of Cohen’s pretrial statement in any of Spector’s appellate briefs.)

I assure you Ms. Lynch had there been a quid pro quo as you put it, the bargain would have included your prosecution for embezzlement – which is what Cohen was seeking at the time.

But I ask you, “quid pro quo for what exactly? An irrelevant gun story that was so tangential it was never testified to at either trial?

Get real.
