How do you know you're in a scam with people who portray themselves as
Usually there is a tripping point. Something always feels weird, but
you can't be sure, so you try and try to gain an explanation.
There's always an answer. In the case of an errant employee of an
organization, the organization, once informed, goes into a protection
mode, then a change is made, without comment, but it's made.
Any charge the reader may feel towards the Real Estate company involved
is in the mind of the reader at this point. Will I, Mark Bell,
(Bell) accept a lawyer taking on this case against the company? Yes. Do
I feel the company is the root of this issue? No, not at this point. A
lawyer may feel different, but it's possible the agency and its
principle got scammed, too. They just reacted late.
If you read other passages of the people involved in the scam, you'll
understand the nature of them.
will provide that background.
background in case you need to answer the question of why the courts
don't do anything despite clear evidence of the machinations of all of
it. They know, they've been informed, but in them exists a culture in
which the parties involved know they can "play" the courts.
Those involved are my ex-spouse Lynne Sheridan (Sheridan) who works as
a nursery school director at a Horizon's school in Milton MA; The
Centre School, and has abused me, the children, and the courts with her
lies and deceit. (This will be apparent within, and is posted at the
Her brother Phillip Sheridan (Phillip) of The
Grossman Companies in Quincy, MA, who used to advertise himself on his
website as a CPA, something he hasn't had certification in since
1996, but who cares about any state certification when you have a court
clerk in your family?
Around 12/2010 Grossman's finally got honest with it, and actually
leads his new
link with the now-denial that he is one. (below) Every CPA I
spoke with, when I asked what they would think about a person who
advertised having a current CPA status was a bit miffed, as they have
to work for theirs. How Sheridan got his is another subject...
But back to the story....what a funny way to lead off a bio.
Now all that junk about "The Nation Honor Society of the College of
Arts and Sciences" is gone, too.
I think The Grossman Companies should include how he pulled off the
kidnapping of a teenager from her father. That's what he did. http://corruptcourts.us/thabusescam
The last of the apparently
involved is Court Clerk Archie Keohane, (Keohane) a clerk at
the District Court in Stoughton, MA, and I'll let the now well
documented and being ferreted out corruption in MA
speak for itself. (See articles at the bottom of this page...it's just
a small spattering of many more...)
Also involved with the funny doings is 460 King St resident(s) Gene
Katz (Gene) and perhaps others
in the Katz family, Joshua and Jeremy, (Sons) Gene's sons, who have
been busted for international drug
smuggling and weapons charges with others. What's their
association? Gene lives with Sheridan, and no doubt is a lucky guy with
his new association with the court-clerked family, when the clerk
seemingly has altered court proceedings, papers, and more, and likely,
anything else he can to benefit the "family." His natural want to
protect his sons makes it all seem logical. Gene works for his family
business, The Camera Company in Norwood, MA. I'm not sure if his family
knows the depths of his association with others aside from Lynne in
Lynne Sheridan has repeatedly abused my children, myself, and the court
Phillip Sheridan finances her, or did until the lawyers quit. No smart
lawyer wants to be involved in pure and simple abuse, at least when the
funding dries up.
Archie Keohane should be ashamed at the performance of his partner's
sister as a member of the court, but he knows how to play the courts,
and does, seemingly on her behalf. How many people would put up with a
family member who robs their employer of the basic tenant of its being;
Truth? Archie does.
Here is a picture of Archie Keohane and Phillip Sheridan after likely
tampering with a court order from the Quincy District Court, and
possibly threatening my lawyer with some sanction, legit or otherwise,
because the court said a modification to the 209A order that would have
allowed me to attend my son's graduation did not exist when Dodd's
office called the court to gain it, so all I had were emails between
lawyers Sheila Baresi and Stephen Dodd saying a modification was
there... Sheridan and Keohane are pictured at Bullens Field in
Westfield at the graduation. Those boys sure know how to run the legal
system, eh? And the system accomodates them, for some sort of
In essence, if Keohane and Sheridan decided to nail me at the Friday
graduation, for anything, they had the power to have me arrested just
by saying I was within 300 feet of the family protected Lynne Sheridan.
NICE SCAM, EH? I would have been arrested and in jail for the weekend
if any cop doing his normal job was notified. And all I had on me was
an ermail from a lawyer, just what DODD told me to bring with me and
have on me....Y'know what cops think of emails from lawyers vs. a
paperwork 209A? About what you are thinking they're worth about
now... See, that's how/why Quincy Court was played, then
Baresi, then Dodd, then me....and frankly, the Judge, too....
Dodd, a $120,000 recipient of state funds for his work for those who
cannot afford it, according to verified Boston Herald numbers, didn't
care, and Baresi, an understudy of longtime associate of Keohane's,
Stephen Salon, likely knew the deal. (view the emails) These
lawyers aren't stupid, and this writer/non-lawyer likely has far less
experience than those who play these games for a living, like Keohane,
who apparently has amazing immunity in the system.
This is how people operate the system for their own welfare...a great
State benefit for Keohane....Dodd and Baresi, too...who cares about
"stinkin'" rights for a client when the BBO will whack you for
something, or you'll lose that great Quincy Court pay for OUIs and
209As as long as you play the game.... (Call me any time you want about
this Sheila and Stephen...what you facilitated in ignorance was
Here's more about more people being abused.
In 2008, Lynne Sheridan was required to place a house on 460 King
St in Cohasset MA, the "former marital domicile," on the market "to be
sold" per the divorce agreement made in 2005. This was also reiterated
by Norfolk Probate Court order reiterated by Judge Eliot Cohen in a
hearing to get the house on the market earlier. All of Sheridan's
lawyers were in favor of her selling the house since 2005, as the
daughter of the marriage had gone off to school, and the son was in the
court granted custody of his father. She did not. Since then the price
of the house has gone down due to the downturn of the real estate
market. The date ordered for the house to be officially placed on the
market was December 6, 2008, 6 months after the graduation from
high school of the couples youngest child.
Papers were exchanged between Bell and Sheridan by Coldwell Banker,
Cohasset sales associate Lillian Sestito, (Lilly) in November of
2008. Bell and Sheridan knew many realtors in Cohasset over their
decades long association with people in Cohasset. Sheridan even worked
for over a decade with the wife of one prominent sales associate. The
person picked was Lilly, by Sheridan only, but Bell went along with it,
as the house sale should be professionally handled. This was without
regard for Lilly, being a "friend" of Sheridan's and her friends in
Cohasset, and she touted her as a
sales person with a good reputation. So be it.
Papers were signed and turned into Lilly well ahead of the "drop-dead"
date on court orders, but the house was not advertised for sale until
the 12-6-08 date. This could be translated into the fact that Sheridan
didn't want to sell the house, as a trick once you've decided to sell a
house is to get it on the market as soon as you decide, and not wait.
Why would you?
On Saturday, 12-6, the ad for the house went on line. Bell saw the ad.
In it were many misrepresentations.
- The house was listed with a
full basement, it had a crawl space.
- The number of bedrooms was
listed as 3, when it clearly had 4, or maybe 5, depending on one room
that was, by virtue of legal definition, a bedroom if a wall was reset
into what it had been before a documented building permit allowing it
to be opened by making another doorway to connect it to the living
- An attic space was listed as
one with "potential" to be made into added space. (This detail is very
- There were no pictures of the attic.
- There were only 2 pictures, 2 very similar shots of the house,
only, on the listing.
- The number of bathrooms was
listed as 2, when there were clearly 3.
- The house has 8 skylights on
the upper floor, somewhat unique, and this was not mentioned in the ad.
- There was no video of the
house despite authorization to have the house listed by contract weeks
Bell called the Broker of the agency, Davenport Crocker. (Crocker)
Crocker was polite and receptive to Bell, and, was informed at the time
by Bell, that Sheridan was involved in many issues dealing with her
non-compliance with the divorce agreement, and other parts of what Bell
described as repeated scams dealing with behind the scenes
manipulations of the divorce, and the courts. It appeared as if
Sheridan was simply
listing the house, and certainly without correct details,
was not sale worthy.
This started a series of emails in which Bell not only recapped the
discussions, but provided substantive information of their discussions
and materials referred to, such as the aforementioned website
that detailed "The Abuse Scam," recapping previous Sheridan illegal
Lilly was seemingly receptive to Bell's claims, and defended the
actions of posting incorrect data as "the town listed only 2 bathrooms"
in their records. Lilly had made claims of being in the house, as she
is Sheridan's friend, to Bell, and he remained confused as to why she
listed it as such.
It was agony for Bell to simply get the listing changed. Soon a video
appeared, and the video mysteriously did not show the attic space that
was featured in the ad. In the months that followed, Bell begged for
price reductions, as the listing was pricing the house at a price far
too high versus others, and even for this house as it stood alone.
Lilly gave reason after reason for it to be maintained there, and there
were few showings, and reportedly, by Lilly, Open Houses that are not
on a log provided by the agency. There were NO offers.
Bell has had an extensive exposure in real estate. His father sold
houses, built houses, and Bell himself got a real estate license, has
been a property inspector, sold three well-priced properties of his own
in very short order. This sale was a sham, the price was a sham,
and the inability for Lilly to produce a worthy professional assessment
to Sheridan, who has never had experience in real estate on her own
accord, was shameful. What brings this into being as the scam it was,
was that Lilly always had an answer to respond to not selling the house
in a better market position, while showings and offers simply did not
Note the mention in the ad of the price of the house, and the
description of the attic space. Doesn't it seem as if a house with 8
skylights would have that in the description?
The ad above is from March of 2009. By then corrections had been
made, yet the unpictured attic is prominent in the headline
description. The price was way too high, and Bell begged Lilly to drop
it, but she would not. She also never executed an
instrument to inform the parties that the price was too high and
she could not perform a sale at the current price. Houses DID sell in
Cohasset...much newer houses at much lower prices, yet she refused to
yield to professionalism, and stayed with her friend who had
significant storage in the mentioned attic....did Sheridan store stuff
in the attic because she does not want to move?
Below is an excerpt from a public
record court filed document in docket #03D1651DV1 of Norfolk Probate
Court showing that Sheridan placed figures on her "signed under pains
and penalties of perjury" financial statement describing the "Fair
Market Value" of the house differently than it was being advertised for
on the day of her signing it.
A government expert on our war efforts once described such data as
One of the first steps in selling is to unclutter the house...that is,
if you want to sell it. The attic room, featured SO brilliantly on the
front page of the listing, was the only room not pictured, and likely
was not even shown as cluttered as it was stated (by Lilly) to be.
Below is an ad changed in May of 2009, 6 months after the
stalled sale date to SELL the house.
Note the corrections to the price in the ad above.....In a market with
prices dropping 20% + from previous years, this house, assessed at
approximately $600K years back, should have been positioned far below
both prices on both ads. A drop from $625K to $609K is the work of an
amateur, as any offer price, if the house was priced right, would
certainly cover this spread. Again, the house was far above its worth.
Numerous emails between Bell and Lilly and then Bell, Lilly and
Crocker, then Bell and Coldwell Banker Counsel David Caristi detailed
Bell's insistence that the house was not only misadvertised from the
beginning, and Bell had told them from day one that this whole affair
was a scam using them as its operative, but now the former attic that
had "Potential" for extra space had become "a wonderfully finished room
over the two car garage."
"Show me the building permit" was the message Bell delivered to the
Lilly was not to be seen again involving the sale of the house. Another
agent took over. (New Agent)
The New Agent made contact with Bell and Sheridan. She promised to
perform another Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) and did. While Lilly
had done a CMA positioning the house versus others that were newer and
larger and had essentials in their headlines more relevant than an
attic with potential for extra space, the new CMA detailed what Bell
has been stating all along...the house was way overpriced.
Below is the new ad with Lilly's picture still on it. It's a guess that
the agency thought putting the new information on the page was more
relevant than removing Lilly's data. So be it. Anybody following the
listing details of this house was sufficiently mixed up by now, and had
likely moved on. It should be noted that the price was squeaked down
from $609K to $599K after much of Bell's begging, which included
sending numerous signed price change forms to Lilly with prices
consistent with Sheridan's court papers, her "sworn" value, and the
price was lowered again to a laughable amount, revealing again,
Sheridan's inability to perform with any experience and wisdom
available to her.
After the New Agent 's CMA, the price was placed in a position more
comparable to other houses in the market.
Here is the log of showings. Other agents involved have had their names
removed, and it should be noted that the log does not show any action
or showings by Lilly.
Some email correspondence is below.
What "Open Houses?" (View the log again.) Wouldn't it be advantageous
to have them on the log? Note the price I was asking for back
Notice Lilly never showed the house to anybody. How come a well-reputed
agent, by Sheridan's claims, doesn't even show the house she's
featuring, to anybody?
Sheridan continued to create delays even after the house was positioned
better. Why or how she got Sheridan to change the price of the house
when Sheridan would not do it for her friend is an interesting
question. New Agent did one of the best CMAs I've ever seen. New Agent
felt the initial asking price of $549K was realistic, and it is, and
that IS, is now a WAS, as things are still down-falling, and the house
still has not brought in an offer. Sheridan told New Agent that she
could consider more reduction once the figures for the septic system
renewal was in.
Bell had been the Chairman of the Title 5 Committee in Cohasset for a
few years, yet
Sheridan refused to use any of that to facilitate getting estimates on
the work to be done. In fact, the Cohasset Board of Health had a very
comprehensive report on a perk test done 22 years ago by a good local
contractor, who did the job for the then-couple. He was also promised
that the real job would be given to him when it came to be, because he
inconvenienced himself to get the perk job done for them. Bell
from 100 miles away did what Sheridan could have done by going to Town
Hall, getting the perk info, and sending it to the engineering company,
taking up a lot less time with the folks involved.
Sheridan did not move on any of the other moves that could get the
project going. If moves were made, Bell facilitated them after initial
contacts were made. After all, Sheridan simply makes moves as if to
make it seem as if she's doing something, but seldom has followed
through...like signing a divorce agreement and then not following it,
then crying about having to be brought to court because she does not.
Sheridan did not get
contractor figures weeks after the engineering company's figures were
given to her. Bell stepped in after hearing from the engineering
company that she was sent the figures "weeks ago," and in a few days
had a figure that was exactly where he felt it was going to come in.
Guess what...Sheridan wants more figures. (Many estimates and
commitments to this project may vary $2000-3000 dollars, reasonably
insignificant in the big picture.) We'll see where those fall.
More stalls. That's all it is. Wasting everybody's time, and typical of
the posture that's been promoted by this person who has a knowledgeable
court clerk in the family, she could not care less about any court
order or posture taken in the court. How could she perjure herself so
prominently in court?
And the perjury continues, this time with Sheridan actually making up a
charge against Bell that was a waste of time. http://corruptcourts.us/liesbroughtintocourt
details that perjury.
As of the date of this text, 7-18-09, Sheridan has refused to even deal
with the realtor about changing the price. She refuses to communicate
with her about it. The scam goes on.
Update 8-2009 - Bell asked the court to intervene about the house sale,
and to compel Sheridan to cooperate with lowering the price. Sheridan
was given 14 days by the case Judge to cooperate with the realtor to
lower the price of the house or she'll go to court. She defaulted on
Update: 8-24. New Agent has pretty
much given up. It's been weeks since Sheridan has been asked to lower
the price, and she is either non-responsive or claims stuff without
substantiation. She told New Agent that she didn't provide "beauty
sheets," and this was taken seriously, so the realtor made some up...
More expense for them...for what?
Of course, the house is not anywhere near where it has to be price
wise, and it has not been shown by anybody. One word on the street is
that realtors are staying away from it, and may remain away no matter
what the price is. Can you blame them?
Sheridan said she got another Competitive Market Analysis. New Agent
asked "From who?" No answer. "What are the numbers?" New Agent asked.
Remember Sheridan wanted to get other septic system estimates?
Nobody has seen any.
If you are keeping score, count the number of people being "used" by
Sheridan. Two realtors, the broker, the septic engineers, the
excavation contractor, every realtor who has tried to show the house,
and every person who wasted time to research the listed property. Are
they all listed?
The sign from the realtor, supposed to be in front of the house, now
stands as a discredit to the company involved. Somebody is putting
their name on Sheridan's con act, which is probably all right with
her...it doesn't have her name painted on it. This house is not for
sale...it's a con game abusing all who step into it.
Has it been shown in the past month? Guess.
Update on the drug smuggling sons: One of the sons was sent to jail for
a couple of years..the other has a status hearing in the near future.
[read about it here.]
Fair? It's up to the reader to decide.
It's tragedy after tragedy...... but in the end, so at the very least
it will not get worse, you'd think that Sheridan, who has a court
connection, would obey a court order.
What does all the above activity say about that?
February 2010 - One buyer placed an offer on the house and, of course,
it was inspected. The real estate inspection was weird, and the
professional inspection results aren't mine to display here, but the
buyer's realtor wrote some notes. Here they are: The house is being run
into the ground. This is domestic abuse with financial abuse as well.
And it went on.....
Update, October 2010.
Bell tried to go into court numerous
times related to the scam. Time after time papers were delayed, or the
situation simply laughed off by the Judge involved. It's all on paper.
Bell was paying $1228/month for the 2nd mortgage on a house that should
have been sold years back for good gain, and his reserves, mostly made
of the money received when the 2nd was taken out, were gone. (Sheridan
also received funds from the 2nd mortgage Bell paid.) The house
was becoming steadily worthless.
After the above purposeful sabotage of
the home sale, (remember, Sheridan's brother is a comptroller of a real
estate company and multiple property owner...he knows how to sell
property, and prepare it for sale) Bell went to court to bring
Sheridan in for contempt for not selling it, keeping the price too
high...all of it.
The first papers turned in just died,
Bell, being polite to the busy court,
waited, called, and was told they were in, and there was no need to
resend them. No hearing date was scheduled.
Seeing an error on one, a date on paper
submitted that he thought would possibly cause a procedural delay, they
were faxed/sent again.
Chief Justice of the Probate Courts,
Judge Paula Carey, who had been the original judge in the divorce, had
once stated she could not deal with judge's decisions or procedures,
but COULD deal with scheduling issues. She was written, responded
quickly, and a call to the court indicated not only had Bell's papers
been unearthed from wherever, but a hearing date was scheduled after
Sheridan turned in a contempt complaint weeks after Bell's original.
So the above was sent into the court, Bell, not knowing what other
machinations were going on.
So, what happened was Bell had motions into the court, and resent them
at a time where it is more than apparent that motions and a contempt
summons was filed against Bell.
The fedex delivery confirmations are below.

In the meantime, after all was being paid for, month by month by Bell
with ZERO court intervention as this scam by a court clerk's family
member went on in full view of the court, Sheridan was allowed to file
motions and apparently had some help in this regard without announcing
she had representation that was actually penning her motions. Sheridan
is not crippled in any manner that would prevent her from writing, yet
the #442 is clearly penned by another person representing her, actually
writing her motions for court. This person or people representing her
are not filed with the court, and have an absolute inability to know
what's going on in the case without any sort of conversation or other
discourse with Bell.
Under what pretense was Bell supposed to pay the mortgage as stated in
the contempt? Sheridan's obligation was to sell the property, a
function she is more than obviously NOT performing, and when it was
sold, it was sabotaged at the time of inspection as detailed above.
Number 444 details how she needs money for repairs to the house, WELL
AFTER the house was supposed to have maintenance to have it properly
sold, and months after the house had leaky pipes and other issues that
HAD to be repaired, and presumably were, yet no cost for reimbursement
to the same escrow accounts was sought at the time.
And more interesting, Sheridan's complaint states she had a new
mortgage for the house approved on 3/31/10, something the realtor and
Bell didn't know about, something CitiBank would have
stopped/delayed/changed the mortgage for...nobody knew.
The Realtor gave notice of their intent to stop their participation in
the sale. Also, in order to be approved for the loan, Lynne had to be
negotiating the loan application beforehand, another fact missed in all

And if the buyout was known, why
was this not brought out until May 3rd?? Sheridan is clearly on
record as having stated terms of her falsely gained and continued
restraining order included BOTH parties could not contact each other,
so therefore Bell simply sent all correspondence from her, especially
when represented by counsel, to Chief Justice Lynda Connolly. Justice
Connolly is on record as trying to appear objective about Archie
Keohane's corrupt activities, and all the rest, yet her own letter
stating Bell would be updated on her investigation, via Judge Dawley,
remains an empty set of words. This fact is mysteriously missing from
her pleas. (Bell once tried to gain a stipulation for contact
between the parties, a move so judge Casey would not have to labor
through a restraining order modification while parties were awaiting
trial. On notes filed in the court file, it's noted her denial of this.
Bell noted the time of her denial, which will match advice given her
not to sign it via her cell phone, reading the stipulation to whomever
was on the other end.)
Why were/are clear orders of the court via the divorce agreement not
honored? The connections run deep, and oaths are meaningless to these
folks, it seems.
It's because they are a court clerk'd connected family and they don't
have to obey any laws, any agreement, nothing.
Any and every delay leaves Bell at a financial disadvantage, and this
was all with malice and forethought. (Note: This now leaves
my creditors at a disadvantage. Do they like a scam where THEIR money
is taken? This has gone on against me for years....the court
Speculation about why this was only substantiates the case regarding
the scam detailed here, and reveals how Sheridan was more than willing
to have escrow funds for her benefit for the repair of the house, and
NOT for the purpose of serving the divorce agreement of selling it.
(This was also the case when she went to court to spend $12,000 to have
the house painted, with details from her supporting the cause of making
the house presentable for sale.)
Bell is well on record with the real estate company stating the house
was never slated to be sold.
A phone call was received by Bell about the same day he got served the
papers above. One can notice that Sheridan was granted not one, but TWO
hearings in a court that touts itself as being overburdened and too
busy. Apparently not for a court clerk's family member.
It was from Richard Schmidt at Norfolk Probate and Family Court. The
recording is here. [link]
One will notice that Bell's contempt motions were processed, and
Sheridan was given a THIRD hearing. Bell's hearing, on June 7th, the
third in line, after his papers were presented first. The date was more
than a week past the dates Sheridan was able to acquire despite the
fact that Bell's papers were sent to the court earlier, and again,
right after her papers were turned in. Anybody looking at or gaining
reliable information from clerks in the scheduling office in the court
can see that typically when one person's name in a case os brought up
the clerks are aware of the other party's dates/actions as well. Bell
WAS told Sheridan had filed papers by telephone during one of his
numerous inquiries. Why the dates were not simply matched, or changed
to match, simply substantiates details that go back to the "Monan
Report" of 2003 citing how clerks took numerous liberties to run the
courts as best suited them with little, if any, bi-partisan philosophy.
After Bell received the calls, coincidentally on the same day he was
served papers, he called in a representative to go to Norfolk Probate
Court and get the papers. Bell's state of mind and experience with
similar actions by the court (see sidenote "The
below.) fed into speculation that the papers that were ready, as
stated by Mr. Schmidt, would be.
Bell's representative went to the court, and not only were the papers
not ready, but nobody knew about Mr. Schmidt's message. Mr. Schmidt was
sought-after and found, and after approximately an hour-and-a-half, the
representative paid $10 and got the papers.
In the past, the court has been cooperative in granting time for funds
to be paid. Bell has paid funds previous to this issue upon his next
appearance in court, and has sent payment in from his bank. The court
knows how to find Bell, who has outstanding credit despite what the
court and sheridan do to ruin it.
Consistent with the scam, all operatives seemed to be planning on the
fact that bell would be in court that Friday, and would likely just
wait for his court appearance then to get the papers. Sheridan's short
notice motion made it all but impossible for Bell to prepare any
papers, even though sufficient data had been given months before
revealing Sheridan's simply pumping Bell for funds he could have used
to pay his creditors instead of this abuse Sheridan et al were dishing
And consistent with speculation that the court is trying to cover
itself, the following letter was received by an assistant to Chief
Justice Carey on SATURDAY, a day after the court appearance, and
certainly with this person able to hear the real scheduling date Bell
was given. It just takes a phone call to me, just like Richard Schmidt
Phones and computers work for everybody, or don't, especially when you
have a court clerk in your family.
NOBODY thought Bell would be getting the papers that day, and the
simple fact they were not ready revealed the possibility that they were
not even prepared, the "plan" being to allow Sheridan's motions only,
and the scam to continue.
[Here] is a link to the response letter
I wrote to Ms. Wright, which is also why you'll likely never see a dime

court she needed funds for the septic system of the house, and received
funds under that pretense, (and asked for them, refer to "Title 5" on

Please see attached letter. Thanks for any help. (As always) :-)
has a similar life insurance policy and other considerable
assets, that, in a fair court, would have been pooled for the benefit
of the children of the divorce, the marital split, and for debts. She
has done nothing but pump Bell for funds, and this scam with the house
sale with FULL cooperation of her family member's court system.
The time has gone, the money is gone, and Sheridan drives in her
new 4-wheeled septic system, funds that were taken unfairly in her
family's court system.
The mail scam:
Judge Langlois issued an order that specified Sheridan
needed to be served papers by a specific Sunday. Bell called the
court to inquire about the papers and when he did not get a call back,
decided to take a day off work to go to the courthouse, a 200 mile
round trip, to get the papers. He called the court to state such.
Bell spoke with court personnel during a series of calls: Register of
the Probate Court, Patrick McDermott, his assistant, Lisa Vilk, and a
lady identified as "Karen" who stated she actually had a mailing of
papers to be served to Sheridan, that "could not go into today's mail,
but will be picked up at 11am tomorrow."
Bell was on his way to the courthouse after leaving work when Karen's
call came through, and recalls being on the MA Pike when he was
speaking to Karen. He went back to work after he was told/advised NOT
to come to the courthouse. (See, if I went to he courthouse they would
HAVE to produce the materials...if they handle it, it's open to
tampering...this is why I sent a representative to pick up the papers
from Mr. Schmidt that day....LESSON LEARNED...IT'S ALL CROOKED!!!!!)

Thursday's mail did not contain the mailing, and Bell had asked a

Lawyers’ donations don’t
faze SJC chief
Top state officials yesterday
shrugged off an extensive history of political contributions made and
state contracts garnered by the independent counsel investigating
patronage at the Probation Department.
“Lawyers are often contributing to politicians,” Supreme Judicial
Court Chief Justice Margaret Marshall told Governor’s Councilor
Christopher Iannella when he asked about the issue during yesterday’s
confirmation hearing for Marshall’s designated successor, Justice
The Herald reported yesterday that independent counsel Paul F. Ware
Jr. and other employees with his powerful law firm Goodrich, Procter
& Hoar gave $207,000 to Beacon Hill power brokers since 2002 while
scoring millions in state contracts. The law firm has received more
than $4.6 million in state contracts over the past decade.
Marshall, whose court appointed Ware to investigate the Probation
Department, told the Governor’s Council she had not read the Herald
article and was not familiar with the state contracts it referenced.
She noted that Ware is not being paid for the probation probe.
Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, who chairs the Governor’s Council, said outside
the hearing he supports Ware’s work but understood “the point” of the
“He did it pro bono, but I just think it underscores that everyone
needs to try to be as careful as possible,” said Murray, who received
$4,300 from members of Ware’s law firm. “In this environment
appearances are important.” Murray said about the Herald article, “I
understand the point that was made. It’s not without merit.” He said he
still believes Ware was the right man for the job.
The SJC previously selected Ware to lead the high court’s
investigation into ex-Superior Court Judge Maria Lopez’s controversial
handling of a case. Ware boosted his public profile and made $168,000
on the case. Spokesmen for both House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate
President Therese Murray declined to comment on the use of the
well-connected law firm. Ware could not be reached for comment last

Investigator slams pols for alleged job-rigging
By Dave Wedge
Saturday, November 20, 2010
The probation department hiring
scandal that rocked Beacon Hill this week and threatens to snare top
lawmakers is a case study in government “out of control” and should
yield criminal charges, the investigator behind the explosive case said.
“The ultimate conclusion whether there is criminal conduct is now in
the hands of the U.S. attorney and Attorney General (Martha) Coakley,”
said Paul Ware, a private attorney tapped by the state’s highest court
to investigate allegations of job-rigging in probation. “Both of those
offices will conduct investigations into different aspects of the
probation problem. But in the report, I have tried to detail
information and evidence that I think is relevant to that decision.”
Of Ware’s findings of rampant “fraud” and “corruption” in probation,
Coakley said: “We don’t view this report as the end, but rather the
beginning of our review of this matter. We are thoroughly reviewing the
extensive report, which chronicles a disturbing picture of the
Probation Department, and will aggressively work to determine the scope
of any violations of the law.”
Ware’s 337-page report names dozens of probation
officials and top lawmakers past and present, including ex-House
Speakers Thomas Finneran and Salvatore F. DiMasi and DiMasi’s former
right-hand man, state Rep. Thomas Petrolati. Finneran and Petrolati
both invoked the Fifth Amendment when called to testify, while DiMasi
Ware’s report says that top legislators regularly recommended
campaign donors for jobs and that those candidates were given routine
preference as part of a pay-to-play scam.
It’s common practice for lawmakers to write letters for job
applicants, but Ware’s report outlines a pattern of “rigging” the
interview process to hire politically connected candidates.
“I think we can assume that legislative recommendations occur within
many agencies,” Ware said. “But in probation, this really got out of
control. The train came off the tracks.”
DISCLAIMER - Sorry if I use truth
to try and dispel the criminal nature of the crimes I've been falsely
accused of commiting.
