Pinky in plea talks

The Queens district attorney has offered a new plea deal to embattled City Councilman and accused rapist Dennis Gallagher that would keep him out of jail and off the sex-offender registry - but force him to resign from office, The Post has learned.

'SEX' POL'S DEAL

It's not clear if Gallagher, who maintains his innocence, will accept the last-ditch deal before DA Richard Brown seeks a new indictment next week on charges the politician raped and assaulted a woman he had met in a bar last June 8, sources said yesterday.

Among the differences in this new round of negotiations is reducing the assault charge from a serious felony to a misdemeanor and giving Gallagher a conditional discharge, which means no jail time or probation if he stays out of trouble, sources said.

It's unclear whether the misdemeanor charge would be assault or sexual misconduct, although he would not be required to register as a sex offender.

Sources said prosecutors want it to be part of the record that his 52-year-old alleged victim, who says he picked her up in a Middle Village bar, was under the influence and unable to consent to sex.

Prosecutors have maintained that Gallagher, a father of two, offered to drive the woman home, but instead brought her to his campaign office, forced her to have sex and injured her knees.

Gallagher, free on $200,000 bail, has maintained the sex was consensual.

But a source said he has engaged in plea talks to avoid the "embarrassment" of a trial.


I'm sure he wants to keep the details under wraps. If a woman cannot consent to sex because she is under the influence of alcohol, that's RAPE. No jail time? No sex offender status? That's just crap.

If it was any one of us we'd be rotting in jail right now and doing a 10 year stretch.

Typical. He pleas and gets no time or offender status, and the DA gets to claim they did their job. Politics as usual.

Pathetic. ACD is what kids who steal from stores or tag up on walls get the first time they're arrested. This guy rapes someone, and basically gets away with it.

it will be a good thing if he is forced from office. Now is the time to rally around a pro-community candidate to replace him in the special election. I'm sure his predecessor will be running.

I publicly call for Historic Districts Council to ask Pinky to return his preservation award.

What a joke.

This is just disgraceful! Any ordinary citizen would be locked up until trial. He will be forced from office next year anyway because of term limits. I think this case should go to trial. How do you think his victim feels about this? If he is innocent, then he should welcome a trial and the opportunity to clear himself. I hate how all these politicians and famous people are above the law. I implore the judicial system to do the right thing, by not offering him a deal.

I have to respectfully disagree with each of these statements. If he were not an elected official this case would have been disposed of long before the first grand jury was impaneled. The evidence never supported the victims claims.

Oh really. How did she get the bruises all over her body? Did she beat herself up and blame it on Pinky? All of the evidence was consistent with a struggle and a rape. Your an idiot of the highest order. Your supporting a rapist.

The DA is not giving Pinky a sweetheart deal. Anyone who has ever had any dealings with Pinky knows what a skell he is and wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire. This is the Crowley's leaning on the DA to force him to take a plea with the stipulation he will resign. Liz Crowley would be able to win easily in a special election. She already has 70 grand, and with her cousin at the head of the Queens machine, she has endless union volunteers and hard core Dems who will come out for a special election. Hey Pinky, now is the time to back up your loud mouth claims that you were railroaded by the JPCA by going to trial and proving your innocence. Oh wait, your a gutless faggot who only pretends to be a man when you think you can fool people. " I love the smell of Pink humiliation in the morning........It's the smell of Victory!!!! "

Elizabeth Crowley would be no improvement over Dennis Gallagher. We'd trade one morally corrupt Gallagher with another morally challenged Crowley who has the grey matter of a squirrel.

-----------------------------------

Precisely the point I illustrated in the earlier post. Only she and she alone talked about brusies all over her body. To a tabloid reporter. Who, if you read the article closely, states "She claims to have bruising all over her body."....The reporter is careful distance him/herself from saying "Bruises are evident on her body"...Except for the knees..Consistent with a specific sexual position....The bruises all over her body never existed. I'm not defending a rapist. I'm defending (in this case EXCLUSIVELY!) an innocent man.

Thats what happens when you live in a one party state.

What the f@#$ did this elf ever preserve, except his own ass?

District 30 has ZERO landmarks. I rest my case.

You have the IQ of a fifth grader and need to go back to school. You have no clue what happens in a criminal investigation before its presented to grand jury. The DA has photographic evidence of bruising all over this womans body. They have Pinky's DNA. They have specific testing to determine if someones private area has been bruised or damaged by physical force. They have eyewitnesses who can testify to his agitated state before leaving the bar. Your the type of individual who probably believes in the rough sex theory of defense. I would like you to go up to this womans face and tell her she wasnt raped. You wouldnt have the balls to do it. As stated your an idiot of the highest order.

Dear Anonymous after Phil Guy:

Do yourself a favor and learn the difference between your and you're. Then you have a right to call someone an idiot.

-----------------------------------

Absolutely, positively incorrect. I don't know which episode of CSI your learned that from, but this is the real world.

There is no photographic evidence of bruising.

Gallaghers DNA is on her because they had consensual sex.

Sorry to keep irratating you with the facts.

Continue with your name calling now.

Queens Crapper said...

Hate to break it to you, but if the person is incapacitated due to alcohol consumption and you have sex with them, that's rape.

Have to wonder how you know so much about the evidence. Is this Dennis himself, perhaps?

I'm not sure Crowley is certain to win, Ognibene will likely run also, the community should at the least put these people on record regarding overdevelopment, I for one have no idea which would be better or worse.

Pinky, Pinky, Pinky, I should have known it was you. Thank you for pointing it out Crapper. Your a sad individual Pinky and you will pay for your crime.

How's this?

The victim has the absolute right to sue the scumbag for all he has - home, car, clothing, rubbers, Vodka and his teeth.

Then the elf can claim his innocence once he's as naked as E. Crowley was when inspecting her lover's pecker in the park.

No problem, Crappy, your not breaking anything to me....As a matter of fact the law does not discriminate concerning gender and sex crimes. If a man is intoxicated the law holds that he too is incapable of consent...I'm not suggesting that Gallagher is a rape victim here...Far from it...He knew precisely what he was doing from the moment he drank with this woman, to when he left the bar with her, to the moment they parted company....As did she, by the way....She left that bar under her own power (according to several witnesses) climbed a steep set of stairs to the infamous campaign office and walked home on her own accord, even stopping to have a conversation with a neighbor along the way...A neighbor who has told all who want to listen (including the prosecutors, the police and the Gallagher defense team) that the woman was not intoxicated...Oh yes, a contention that is supported by the responding paramedic....Why do you think the DA is offering a MISDEMEANOR charge with no jail?...For a brutal rape?..NEVER!.They know what they have....I'm also inclined to think Gallagher accepts the plea...I'm only defending the charges against the man not the mans charachter.

Queens Crapper said...

So you are either a prosecutor, a detective or a member of the Gallagher defense team? And how do you get consensual bruises during sex? Is Pinky trying a Robert Chambers defense? We all know how well that worked for him.

Anonymous said...

Please don't believe anything you read in the papers. These leaks often come from the defense as a way to undermine the prosecution before the trial starts. Gallagher will be indicted and go to trial. And I can't wait to hear all the details of what a sexual pig he is.

As the childrens game says..."Your getting hotter, your red hot!"...I'm indeed one of the three...And not a fan of Gallagher..But I do believe in the sanctity of law and true justice...I know about the reprehensible life style the man has led....I've heard the gossip, and I give it credence...But I've been (legally) privy to the evidence...All of it...Her testimomy, his testimony and the irrefutable crime scene evidence...The man is innocent of these charges...I'll never argue about many of the issues you bring up about overdevelopment and the cozy relationship between him and those responsible or the decadent lifestyle led by the man...I'm fully aware of the many people he has hurt through sheer spite and vindictiveness....I've no quarrel with any of these credible issues...But this man did not rape this woman....As much as one may support or despise an individual, true justice should always prevail.

Anonymous said...

Now they are saying a man can be raped if he is intoxicated?

If Pinky was raped, why didn't he have bruises to show the prosecuter?

An innocent man surely would have displayed such exculpatory evidence, if it existed.

The woman did show her bruises to the Daily News, the photographs were in the newspaper.

SIGH.....The woman showed her bruised knees...I'll spell it out s-lo-w-l-y. . . S h e s h o w e d b r u i s e d k n e e s. There is no other photographic, medical, evidentiary or prosecutorial photographs or documentation to the contrary....I'm certain each and every one of us as readers knows someone in the medical field...Please ask that person if vaginal bruising and or tearing is consistent with sexual intercourse...NOT ROUGH SEX, normal, consensual intercourse...The standard and established medical determination is a resounding YES....When you make love, even as you are a gentle partner, you will cause tearing and bruising of the vaginal walls....Please, don't take my word for it...I implore you to seek out a competent medical authority...I would hope you would have the integrity to publish the truthful information you receive.

Your argument is literally going to come back and bite Pinky, when he goes to the jailhouse warden next year and shows his bloody butt and claims rape.

Then what "embarrassment" does he want to avoid by pleading rather than standing trial.

The "innocent" cannot be embarrassed, Mr. Lapdancer!

Also, are not the victim and society due true justice? Or, are we to consider only the perpetrator and his delicate sensitivities?

Let the truth become public! And, then hang the corrupt, wretched elf bastard!

Unfortunately, it is debatable which has violated more of his constituents - his tool or his corrupt backroom deals. Perhaps a draw. This morally bankrupt piece of crap should be tossed to the curb with the rest of the garbage.
