One minute he's seated at his typewriter pounding out a story on Claudio Osorio being criminally indicted, and the next he is at the Four Seasons glad-handing at the DBR's "Most Successful Lawyer" soiree.
Because he is a newspaperman, that's how.
Osorio was charged with fleecing investors of $40 million. The indictment also charges Osorio and co-conspiritors falsely obtained a $10 million loan from the Overseas Private Investment Corp., a U.S. government agency that promotes U.S. investments abroad to foster the development and growth of free markets. The loan was intended to build a factory and 500 homes in Haiti for families displaced by the 2010 earthquake.
I leave any discussion of all this to Rumpole and DOM who know what this means, but I observe that allegedly scamming Chris Korge and the government might increase your chances of being charged with a crime.
Begging the question: what song might the good Judge invoke to support his ruling?
