grey ugg boots uk will cooperate in probe involving Brizzi
Attorney of Northern Indiana, admitting to wire fraud for his role in the purchase of a building leased to the state of Indiana in Elkhart. Attorney Southern District is investigating.”
Multiple sources tell Fox 59 News that those “matters” involve former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi, who was a partner in the Elkhart building deal at the center of the investigation of Page and real estate broker John Bales. District Court in South Bend later this month as a result of a 14 count indictment regarding the purchase of the building which was later leased to the state of Indiana.
Brizzi previously told Fox59 that he was granted half interest in the building, worth an estimated $500,000, as a “finder’s fee” even though he put no money into the deal. Bales and Page have been longtime associates of Brizzi’s, donating money to his campaign for prosecutor as well as engaging in other personal business deals.
Fox59 first reported on allegations of questionable plea deals approved by Brizzi in early 2010. In one deal, Page represented steroids dealer Joseph Mobareki. In a rare move as part of the plea bargain, Brizzi approved returning money seized by narcotics officers to pay Page’s legal fees.
In July of 2009 Brizzi and chief trial deputy David Wyser approved an unusual sentence modification of convicted killer Paula Willoughby. Willoughby, who was originally sentenced in 1991 to 110 years in prison for the murder of her husband Darrell, was given an early release.
Willoughby’s father, Harrison Epperly, donated at least $55,000 to Brizzi’s 2006 re election campaign. Willoughby’s attorney, Jennifer Lukemeyer, held a political fundraiser for Wyser at her downtown condominium a month after the early release. Brizzi and Wyser have always maintained the early release was for humane reasons, including that Willoughby’s remaining son was without parents since his father had been murdered and his mother in prison.
Brizzi was a personal associate of convicted swindler Tim Durham. Durham was sentenced to prison in November for his role in the $200 million collapse of Fair Finance an Ohio based firm where Brizzi briefly served on the board of directors. Brizzi and Wyser both received campaign donations from Durham.
Fox59 spoke to Paul Page’s attorney by phone. Attorney Joseph Hogsett, told Fox 59 News, “the plea bargain speaks for itself.”
Page faces an April sentencing of up to 20 years.
Fox59 reached out to Carl Brizzi, leaving a voicemail message on his cell phone. So far, we have not heard back.
Carl Brizzi has done a lot of very bad things, I know from personal experience what he did to me, a person he never met, in his quest to help his buddy Tim Durham that I worked for years to get prosecuted. I have never met Carl, he should not even know my name.
Carl has never met Larry Michael, a former competitor of Tim yet do you know someone male prosecutor from Indianapolis back when Carl was the head DA one of Larry celebrity buses impounded by sending out an Oregon sheriff, lying to that sheriff that this certain male prosecutor was heading a “multi state sales tax investigation” over license plates. Gee, i wonder who that was, Carl, especially given the timing was when Larry and Tim were in a lawsuit using the legal system to bully people like me who turned him in or were “not on his side” the while being financed with the life savings of elderly victims he fleeced.
Carl, you did this to yourself. Go look at your kids the money worth not seeing their faces outside a prison cell for many, many years to come. Page was smart to cut a deal out of the mess he never should have been in in the first place. If you have any brain cells left you should be cutting deals on everyone else you know to have done corrupt things because it sure looks like you are going to have a prisoner identification number very soon.
Yes, please ante up details. A prime whistleblower is the one who looked at the Elkhart property records and found that second purported mortgage for L which everyone else missed was timely filed on the Friday before Thanksgiving which immediately preceeded the Tim Durham raid. Now then, where did Bales get that money would someone drive all the way up Highway 31 on all that ice, on Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, to hurriedly file that second purported mortgage just before Tim Durham was raided. What a coincidence, huh. Why did Carl blurt out the whisteblower name on Emmis radio when he had never met or spoken or seen that person? Why did Carl take it upon himself to cause legal injury to that person who was a relentless pitbull against Tim Durham apparently in Carl mind against him as well for outting that nasty little second purported mortgage with such uncanny timing, just like the uncanny timing of Carls stunning Cellstar purchase, hundreds of thousands of shares right before Brightpoint bought them, yet Carl didn share all of these spectacular investing gains with his wife in his divorce now did he? And she has enough class to just walk away from him and want nothing to do with his allegedly ill gotten gains. Carl, Carl, Carl. I heard he called Jack Rinehart a MOTHER FUCer last week, sounds like he is a bit stressed these days cuz good ol Jack didn cause Carl problems nor did Russ.
You know what really ironic? Carl could have become President if he had busted all the goons instead of getting into bed with them. Wonder who he will be hiring as his defense counsel be Barnes and Thornburgh, I bet! hahahaha
Russ has had this since the beginning. You have done an exemplary job in this. Patience, bravery,
persistence, meticulous , restrained all are accurate descriptors in watching you do this Russ. You continue to impress. You do your station, your proffesion, your family, and our community a great service.
Many in this community have known the truths about this band of characters for a long time. It is refreshing to know that the drivers of the wheels of justice watch Fox 59 and read the IBJ. Mr Page, I admire your courage and pray lieniency in your situation. Would impress me if the old Carl I knew many moons ago would display the type of character he has the ability to have by being honest and facing the music. You have crapped on enough people.
Question for any legal eagles that read this board:
If Carl is indicted, and among his indictments is included public corruption for allegations of fixing cases, will he be a no bail hold?
It seems to me he would have even more reason to run that his friend that was taken into custody upon sentencing. And I don know what holding cell he would be safe in given the allegations against him that I have heard include screwing a bunch of people who should never have been in jail. I would not want to be in Carl shoes at all. Ugh.
Tell it to Charlie White, sweetheart. I sat through a lot of that trial. White got convicted largely because of the pathetic lack of skills of his trial attorney, one Carl J. Brizzi. It was evident to everyone in the room, judge, jury, prosecutors, witnesses, audience, even the defendent himself, that the defense counsel was in way over his head, and it showed in the body language and facial expressions of everyone there. Just one obvious and undebatable example, of many for those who know him. You can go visit him in the federal pen and keep affirming his ego, though, fairly soon. To openly state that you “love” any given political figure, even good ones, is at least a bit bizarre in its own right. To vouch for a bafoon like Brizzi is just hilarious. Hopefully 59 comments section won overload from the 100,000 or more supporters so strangely silent to this point.
I very glad that Brizzi will hopefully be held responsible for being corrupt in the release of my brother murderer, his wife, Paula Epperly Willoughby, who was set free after only 18 of a nearly 80 yr sentance. Nearly everyday I still think about how she paid two men to take his life and watch him die. And just like paying them for his death her father paid for her release. And so there is no justice . Darrell has been gone since July 1, 1991, and she is free . Put her back in prison and that would trully be justice for my brother. But that will never happen, I may be a sinner but good look buying your way into heaven . I don think being a millionaire will impress God at all. And i want to remember my brother for the amazing person he was to everyone, not for the what happened to him. Need I say more? It the reason I trust only God in this world .
Wyser is just as much a thug as Brizzi. They will encourage you to not give a statement to the judge when the deal is given in court especially if you do not agree with the deal. I can not speak for the relative above. I know in my case, I had asked for my personal attorney to go with me and she said “Oh this is bad why would Wyser be here? There is something going on in order for us to be graced with his appearance.” It all went downhill from that moment on. They all were aware of the illegal deals and chose to take the money and ignore all ethics they were sworn to.
Because of the length of my response, I have to divide my reply to your inquiry into several postings.
Although this may seem long, I hope that by putting our story in context, you will have a greater understanding of what has occurred since Paula Willoughby, Douglas Stueber, and Kevin Spore murdered our brother Darrell.
At the time of Darrell murder and Paula arrest, her parents (Harrison and Donnette Epperly) petitioned for custody of the two children. At that time, Jeremy was 8 and Joshua was 4. Darrell family did not seek guardianship, but went to court to assure that we would have visitation with the children. The Epperlys required Darrell mother, Dorothy Willis, to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine that she was emotionally unstable and therefore should not have unsupervised, or overnight, visits with the boys. Provision for limited visitation was granted to Darrell parents, Jim Willoughby and Dorothy Willis. But even so,
the Epperlys did not honor the court ordered visitation schedule as well as avoiding all our phone calls and attempts to contact the children. Before long there was no contact between Darrell family members and his sons.
