Hopefully, four high-powered attorneys about to be professionally embarrassed. I remember when the US justice system banged up Conrad Black, Lord Black no less! The UK press was stoked, because I doubt he would have received a custodial sentence here. I see Shkreli is also at MDC in the general pop. and that his nickname, far from being ‘Doctor Death’ or something fitting along those lines, is ‘pharma bro’ – who among the crims fraternity doesn’t want to make a friend in Big Pharma?

I’d love to think Keith will be given a chance to prove his theory about gang rape “If a rape victim has an orgasm, is it an act of consensual sex? ” but there’s always the chance he’ll be lauded for his enslaving tax-avoiding, actress-dogging, heiress-draining ways.

What would lead to certain ‘punishment’ is that he raped little girls, acting as a ‘teacher’ to do that. He imprisoned an illegally imported Mexican girl, who didn’t want to hack for him or sex him. He has trafficked a lot of Mexican girls who work in his pretentious nursery schools, but really it’s the same-same – cheap Mexican child-care, no tax, pure exploitation. His total lack of respect for ‘conservative’ family, social and gender values- instructing the men in his power to ‘be’ homosexual. His contention that ‘there are no victims’, that incest and pedophilia are totes fine and all the above not part of the reason most of the criminal population are in such shit in the first place.

The Muslim population might appreciate his anti-semitism but not his messianic bullshit or his predilection for oral sex. On women.

Does anyone know the name of the PR firm yet? ‘Consensual’ about to be every second, third, word in many shill sentences.

Teny Rose Geragos also works for Brafman. Brafman defended Martin Shkreli. Shkreli was looking at the possibility of 20 years for fraud, defense wanted 12-18 months, prosecutors wanted 15+ years, Judge sentenced him to 7 years, fined him $75K, and ordered him to forfeit $7.36 million in assets.

Geragos’s dad defended Chris Brown in his assault case. And Michael Jackson in his molestation case.

Geragos went to NYU undergrad and Loyola in LA for law school. She had an extra fancy wedding in 2013 in Pasadena, where her dad works and she grew up. The reception took place in Geragos Hall. She is beautiful, and has curves, so hopefully Keith won’t try to enslave her.

One sex offender attorney, and two financial crimes attorneys. They know what is coming.

Who knows how much Nancy took from the house before it was raided, and lawyers can easily put cash in their IOLA accounts.

The $ could have come from several places.

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.
