Victory for Natalie and O’Hara: ACD offered/accepted on computer trespass case

Toni Natalie

This just in…. according to a source Toni Natalie and Joseph O’Hara have accepted a plea deal of an ACD [adjournment in contemplation of dismissal] on the super expensive -e felony computer trespass case against them.

A clear cut victory for the defendants, an ACD means that after a set period of time elapses the charges will be dropped.

Millions of Bronfman money was spent to punish these two for alleged minor infraction of allegedly using a NXIVM member’s password to log on and view a coaches list and other information on the NXIVM website.

Keith Raniere and his organization spent untold amounts of Bronfman money on lawyers to hunt their enemies. The Saratoga district attorney and the New York State Attorney General declined to prosecute the flimsy case.

The Albany District Attorney’s office also declined to prosecute citing a conflict of interest but aided Raniere to purchase justice.  Raniere’s attorneys – one of whom – Michael McDermott a former Albany County Chief Assistant DA – procured the services of a ‘Special prosecutor” Holly Trexler.

Not surprisingly the special prosecutor, Trexler, working for the people used to work under McDermott.

That’s right: Raniere’s attorney was once the boss of the special prosecutor.

Color of law is almost defined by this case.

This leave the stalwart whistle blower Barbara Bouchey left standing.

She has not, according to sources, accepted the deal. Her case is substantially different than Natalie and O’Hara inasmuch as no evidence exists that she actually did any computer trespassing into NXIVM’s proprietary information.

This case should be referred to the US Attorney to investigate whether Raniere and company colored the law in a criminal and coruupt sense.

Also a vigorous investigation should commence regardding the possibility of perjury by NXIVM members Clare Bronfman, Steve Ose and Ben Meyers.

Of course Raniere has his name on nothing at all.

More on that later.

YES! This is awesome news. It might be wishful thinking but one can almost sense a change in how NXIVM is finally being handled in the courts. Didn’t Keeffe say in her phone transcript that Natalie has a great attorney. Now Barbara Bouchey needs to deliver the death blow. If OSE, Myers and Bronfman have to suffer for the sins of their master by serving time so be it. That removes major funding and some of the tech savvy from the grubby one’s control. Let’s see how devoted Clare really is. Will she serve time for her master or snap the fuck out of it?.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
