Everything You Want to Know About the Case Against Paul Bergrin: The Explanation

On January 16, 2019, a “letter” was filed on Paul Bergrin's 2255 petition. Paul has written it out for all to see, but it is not actually a letter. It is a certification that addresses each count in the criminal case against him and explains what really happened. If you have ever had questions concerning his innocence, your issue is explained clearly in the document. It is seventy handwritten pages and eight typed pages that are the “Maximum Hypocrisy” statement with a few added notes.

For example, an attorney with a grudge against Paul Bergrin has consistently posted in comments on this blog attacking Paul over the entire New York State prostitution case in relation to everything from Paul's plea (to a misdemeanor) to his alleged relationship with Jason Itzler and what he actually did related to NY Confidential. ALL of that is explained. Would it interest you to know that Itzler's longtime attorney was Mel Sachs (now deceased)? The state nor the federal government ever pursued Sachs.

If you are interested in the “Oscar the hitman” (Oscar Cordova) fiasco, every issue is dealt with in this certification. I still want to know who this so-called Oscar Cordova really is, because he's definitely not Lord Gino's (of Latin Kings fame) son. He was/is just a little whiny drug addicted dirtbag paid huge sums of money by the government in this case and many others.

Want to know about the Vicente Esteves story and how he had already made a plea deal and could therefore have had no interest in killing any witness? It's all there. Interested in Paul's military background and scope of his career in law? Read on.

Also included is the Maximum Hypocrisy statement already posted on this blog. Paul has added a few handwritten notes to the typed pages. For example, how Chief US Attorney John Fahy was found with a bullet in his head after agreeing to testify on behalf of Paul Bergrin. His death was ruled a suicide, which is a possibility, considering that he developed a conscience. However, it is also a possibility that someone with too much to lose had him murdered.

Most important, the certification tells the world who Paul Bergrin really is. He is definitely not what the government has painted him to be in this horrendous fiasco of a case. Don't skim this document as you will miss important parts; intended to be read in its entirety.

I think that I am the New York attorney you mentioned. But I have no grudge against Paul. We share the same first name. I actually liked him; we were both young then, relatively speaking. But he was sloppy. He cut corners. Some of the stuff was actually pretty serious, like the conflict of interest with two attys from the same firm repping two buyers in a case. And, again, that was just one or two appearances many years ago.
There is no question that he was guilty of promoting prostitution. He hired the most expensive and overhypped nyc defense lawyer and pleaded guilty.
He's not a murderer. Nor is he an innocent lamb.
That's all I'm saying.

Btw, mel sachs sucked, but no one accused him of partnering up in the business with slimeball Itzler.

Not many men can pretend being an innocent lamb especially when it comes to women.
In court Paul Bergrin recognized that he loved women. He told me that he enjoyed every moment when being in the company of a woman. With time certain men mature and
others don't. I believe Paul has matured by now and loving women is definitely not
a reason to lock up Paul at ADMAX and accuse him of crimes he has not committed.

Ah, now I know who you are. You left many negative comments about Paul before and during his trial, some published. I recall asking Paul who you were and he had a few comments, but basically said you were no one of importance, had an axe to grind, and had your own license to practice problems in NY. I recall looking you up and he was correct.

I know who Mel Sachs was and what he was. You have the audacity to defend Sachs and trash Paul? Your major grudge is showing dude. Sachs wasn't Itzler's longtime attorney for no reason. You know what he did. As a matter of fact, I first heard of Sachs from an angry female client who told him to shove it where the sun didn't shine back in 2005 or late 2004. She then hired Larry Lustberg. Her case (and her husband's) was a major fiasco for both NY and NJ US Attorney's Offices. She's Russian. Another hint... her husband wrote a book after his release from BOP,but only published in Russia at this time.

So have you read Paul's statement on the NY State case, Itzler and why he pled to the misdemeanor in the document linked herein? What are you claiming to know? Were you there? (not according to Paul). Tell me specifically what you claim Paul did to promote prostitution... I'll await your answer, and please do be specific.

Cant this attorney identify himself and let us know who he is. He shares the same
first name as Paul Bergrin but does not share anything else except but a grudge against him.

Anonymous said...

In his letters Paul Bergrin talks a lot about this government witness Anthony Young.
Where is this man today and what has the government given him to make false testimonies. He appears to be the key to solve this case on many points. Could you
explain more about this man Vicky. From what I understand, he is the actual murderer.
Thank you for explaining Vicky.

What I remember during the trial is that part of the Jury believed Anthony Youngs
lies but not all of them, some members of the Jury had doubts.

I sentence you to reread the linked certification starting at the bottom of page 14 and continuing to the bottom of page 24. The subject is the Kemo Deshawn McCray murder. Paul explains it very well. Anthony Young was NOT the shooter, there was never any street meeting, and Paul illustrates this extremely well.

You could also read the post on this blog titled "Eyewitness to Murder" which includes the testimony of Johnny Davis, Kemo's stepfather who was with him when he was murdered. There's more to read, but I need to run to the grocery store before I can't.

Anthony Young was released from prison shortly after his testimony in Paul's second trial. He didn't expect to be incarcerated for that long, though he was sentenced to 30 years, but was held to secure his testimony.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Vicky, I have read all this. Its clear that this Anthony Young has lied
especially considering the testimony of Johnny Davis, who identified the murderer
quite clearly. It would be honest if these persons that committed perjuries would
finally come up and bring out the truth and stop depriving Mr Bergrin of his life.
All I can say is that if they don't do it, they deserve to be punished because this
is criminal.

Anonymous said...

No.

Vicky Gallas said...

Just in case you can't find the "Eyewitness to Murder" post. Read the testimony quoted from the trial transcripts and try to explain to me, or anyone, how you believe that Anthony Young was the shooter. He was not. Of course there is additional evidence which Paul discusses in the certification, but the Davis testimony alone should have killed the false testimony from Young. It's obvious what the government did here.

Yes, I agree Vicky that the Davis testimony alone should have killed the false testimony from Young. The government must have promised a lot to Young for his
false testimony. How can this traitor be living a happy life today after what he
has done to Paul Bergrin. Personally, I firmly believe that all traitors in this
world deserve severe punishment, real severe punishment. I personally have not pity
for such individuals. I AM WHAT I DO NOT WHAT I SAY! David SUZUKI.

Did you ever think about becoming a lawyer ESQ ??? I don't know what the heck the jury saw or heard.

We went over this on this blog before,about mr Davis testimony how do you miss that as (JURORS) or (JUDGE)FOR THAT FACT. Judge martini saw all this BS first trial and that's why he severed the cases, I was so pissed off when they allowed him to be removed the fix was in from there on don't get too many FAIR JUDGES like martini.

Anonymous said...

Judge martini had serious issues and concerns about Anthony Young and for a GOOD LYING REASON.

All these comments are nice and it proves that Pauls trial was totally fabricated
by the government. But more to all this why did the police not do their job to find
the real murderer of this boy Mc Craig. When Paul was convicted did it satisfy their
egos, why was the investigation stopped. Now don't tell us that the murderer was also dictated by the government. This would be outrageous, but where is the real
murderer, he would have a lot to reveal to us. Thank you Vicky for all the good work.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

The murder victim's name is Kemo Deshawn McCray, not "Mc Craig". The lousy excuse for an investigation was over the day that William Baskerville was charged with the murder conspiracy. After that the government only sought to tie Paul Bergrin to it and the NY State stupid case allowed them to do that in a way that was almost impossible to fight.

Anonymous said...

So up to now Vicky, no one knows who really killed Kemo Deshawn McCray. And the police has simply closed this without searching any further. Quite a negligence this
whole story is, the story of an unsolved murder.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

Some of us have our favorites - I definitely do, and I have stated it on this blog in past. But as I do not have the power and money to investigate, my thoughts are somewhat irrelevant. The evidence makes it clear that it was not Anthony Young and not anything that either Paul Bergrin or William Baskerville had anything to do with. It truly is an unsolved murder in that respect.

Anonymous said...

AND THE MURDERER OF KEMO IS STILL OUT THERE. THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT DOING ANYTHING
ABOUT IT. THIS IS STRANGE, AND A COMPLETE LACK OF RESPECT TOWARDS THIS BOYS FAMILY.
I GUESS GETTING RID OF PAUL WAS SUFFICIENT FOR THEIR EGO AND PERSONAL PROMOTIONS.
BUT THIS IS NOT RIGHT BY LAW AND JUSTICE MUST CORRECT THIS. THE MURDERER MUST
BE FOUND BY ALL MEANS.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

I'm sure that ship sailed a long time ago. Anyone they charged could just point to Anthony Young's confession.

Anonymous said...

Yes Vicky agreed but it totally remains an unsolved murder and the police as well as
the Government did not do the Job. It should never be too late to find a murderer. He is still out there maybe even reading the blog regularly.

I tried to read the letter, and I will try to read it again, but I don't think it will be much help for Paul I am sad to say. But I'm shocked that Paul would write me off so blithely, not seeing that what happened to both of us is related. My contretemps with the Grievance Committee is of much less moment than what happened to Paul. But his practice was much larger. They wanted to be rid of me, but they really wanted to be rid of him.
Thanks for the blog.

Please remember that Paul has been in the worst facility the US operates, even worse than Guantanamo, since August 2016. His mental health is failing - to me that is obvious when I read the letters posted here. He has been held incommunicado in solitary confinement since he arrived at this US hellhole. He thinks everyone has deserted him. That is how solitary for an extended period of time works. I'm sure he thinks I deserted him too because of the SAM designation. Lustberg is not allowed to tell him that people are concerned or that I have posted his letter here.

I weighed-out posting the letters, but in the end, I decided that the world needs to know what the US government has done to him, especially with this SAM designation and the move to the Supermax and solitary. Read the letters closely and you will see what I mean. Then research Florence ADMAX and the effects of solitary on the mind.

Ok. Thanks. I will. This is his habeus, right?

I really do not know who you are at all. If I knew specifically which letter you referred to here, I could narrow it down and have a better idea, but Paul mentioned numerous attorneys in his various letters linked in this post. What I can say without having any real idea who you are, is that if you ever had any concern for Paul Bergrin, please consider filing something with the right court demanding that the SAM designation (Special Administrative Measures) is removed. I do not pretend to know how specifically you would go about such an undertaking, but I do know for sure that Paul's life depends on it and the government's reasoning for the designation is a whole lot of bullshit, just like just about everything in this case.

I have read various petitions to remove SAM designations but I am not sure of the proper venue, which of course is the starting point. I think (with emphasis on think) that it would be filed in US District Court in Colorado. I could definitely link other similar petitions if that would help. I'm telling you point blank that Paul's life depends on it. He cannot be held in solitary confinement and incommunicado in Florence ADMAX for much longer or the problem will be moot. Think about it please!
