People v Rinaldi
Skillfully Created By
Defendant appeals from a judgment of the Criminal Court of the City of New York, New York County (Kevin B. McGrath, J.), rendered June 17, 2016, after a nonjury trial, convicting him of stalking in the fourth degree (two counts), harassment in the first degree, and harassment in the second degree, and imposing sentence.
John Rinaldi appeals from a judgment of the Criminal Court of the City of New York, New York County, Kevin B. McGrath, J., rendered June 17, 2016.
Judge Kevin McGrath stood in between sessions in the court lobby listening intently as Mr. Rinaldi complained that Judge McGrath appeared to be disabled in hearing, and in site. McGrath continued to listen to a privileged conversation between defendant John Rinaldi as Mr. Rinaldi was complaining about actress model Brooke Shields manipulating the court in the all to obvious and all too often smile, hair rolling, and giggle as she committed perjury upon perjury upon perjury. Mr. Rinaldi also complained out loud that every not he was taken was ignored by Defense Attorney Jon Stombely, of Manhattan Legal Aid. Mr. Rinaldi also stated out loud that not only was Manhattan Assistant District Attorney, Anjelica Gregory Suborning Perjury, but that Judge McGrath was obvioulsly too stupid to care or that he too was bought by Gavin deBecker.
Judge Kevin McGrath should have been recused, but Jon Stombely refused to make the motion just as he refused to defend the case.
After a nonjury trial, that allowed a compromised and deeply offended Judge Kevin McGrath to sentence not only Defendant John Rinaldi, but also all of us Sandy Hook families and Sandy Hook organizations who have been so deeply further terrorized victims of crazy conspiracists.
Judge Kevin McGrath, convicted John Rinaldi of a heterosexual crime of stalking in the fourth degree (two counts), harassment in the first degree, and harassment in the second degree for asking neighbor and acquaintance actress and model Brooke Shields to attend a Hallmark sponsored event in Newtown to honor the 20 slaughtered age 6 to 7 year old babies, and 6 educators in the small village of Sandy Hook in Newtown, CT.
Judge McGrath stated that there was no legitimate purpose to the Sandy Hook first Anniversary invitation.
Hallmark Cards believes otherwise.
Hallmark believes that Sandy Hook was not only worthy, but that it was important enough to create a unique ornament to Mr. Rinaldi's specifications.
Hallmark commemorated 26 original one of a kind ornaments that honored each life senselessly taken on December 14, 2012.
That same year, Mr. Rinaldi of the Sandy Hook Center not only held the event that was captured by Getty images, but had also invited several other notable neighbors.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.
Sarah and Matthew have known Mr. Rinaldi for some 30years at that point, and very generously not only offered their support, but Sarah was generous enough to offer her support should ABC's The View confirm an ask of a moment of silence.
Executive Producer, at the time Brian Balthazar was also incredibly supportive and remains a support to Mr. Rinaldi to this day.
*A member of the Sandy Hook Center's board was Craig Zadan. Craig had offered Sarah her break through role in Footloose, and was also a boyfriend of Mr. Rinaldi's.
Matthew and John had also spent quite the night together when they all met over too many drinks and too much of another then questionable smokable plant. So, much so that Matthew had invited John to join his Children's Young Artist United organization.
John had just finished 3 months of working with the prolific and utterly brilliant Rob Reiner on the 1992 film, "A Few Good Men." And although very grateful that THE Michael Ovitz, Rob Reiner, and Aaron Sorkin worked so hard with casting great Jane Jenkins to cast Mr. Rinaldi, John was very happy to be working with Matthew to help empower kids...
And the rest is history.
Julie! Julianne Moore is by far one of the greatest Hollywood legends of our time. She is also to me, just Julie. After her very famous Best Actress win in "Still Alice" Julie and John ran in to each other, as they often do. They chatted, and Julie gave John a big kiss as he excitedly congratulated her on her win, and boldy announce that he knew she'd win deep in his bones.
The very day after Sandy Hook experienced the worst assault on our nation's children, John and Julie sat together in front of the West Village's Village Apothecary. They consoled each other and shared in their horror and both discussed how it still couldn't be real, and how tragic. John then shared his plans to build a Children's CenTer, and proudly declared who was his mentor/ advisor, and the centre's inspiration.
Julie was in, of course!
*Julie actually asked us to hold on to her bestowed upon Sandy Hook memorial items for her.
We, of course are.
Liv! Liv Tyler is another neighbor of John's and he too asked Ms. Tyler to join Sandy Hook. At the time, Liv only knew John as the man who had so often offered up his parking spot, the guy who had helped move in a desk, and the guy who often helped her decorate the front of her Brownstone during the many decorate-able holidays.
Liv was in as well, and agreed to hold on to the Sandy Hook memorial items to be replaced in Newtown.
We were even on Anderson Cooper's short lived daytime talk show.
He too was given a Sandy Hook memorial item and even had it commemorated.
BROOKE was the only one who was so offended that she was asked to support Sandy Hook.
Actually, the disdain came after.
Google AOLBuild and you can actually see Ms. Shields not only acknowledge our work at Sandy Hook, but seemed to be pleased that we were paying forward the kindness her mother had shown us.
Contrary to defendant's contention, the "reasonable fear" and "no legitimate purpose" elements of the offense were established by the testimony of the complainant and additional eye-witnesses
Reasonable Fear? She and I are literally on the web at an event Mr. Rinaldi was invited to by Ms. Shields' team. Had it not been for her staff, John would have had no idea nor would he have been able to get tickets.
S A N D Y H O O K
WAS/IS a legitimate REASON to include our notable neighbors to support a shattered community.
SPEAKING of TICKETS.
Tickets to any Broadway Show requires the purchaser/ticket holder to use their own credit card to purchase tickets.
If Mr. Rinaldi was a threat, he'd have been asked not to attend.
Mr. Rinaldi ALSO did NOT see every Broadway show featuring the tone deaf model.
ALSO the only way John saw Ms. Shields in "Adams Family" was after a friend of John's had a playbook at his home with Ms. Shields featured on it. Incidentally, the Broadway show had also ended it's publicized run featuring Ms. Shields. At the time it seemed fortunate that the Adam's Family extended Ms. Shields' run. Had they not, Mr. Rinaldi would have missed the show.
In hindsight, John wishes to Christ that he never attended nor had he allowed her to self willingly penned an unasked for/ (untold) Happy Birthday!
Had the show not extended, John would have missed "Adams Family," much like he had missed so many others!
INCLUDING a headlining singing engagement at John's friend Michael's Club, "FEINSTEINS." John and Michael Feinstein have been friends for some 30years after first meeting at Craig Zadan's coveted Game Night. It was a weekly game night of a lot of Craig's friends where networking was the commonality. It was also very fun, and a Hellllllo Gorgeous was definitely a highlight.
When you have tea with Barbra, walk Ella across the stage, talk hockey with Meryl, help Olivia with a request, escort Mrs. Jackson, gifted a Nat King Cole library from his only son, mentored by Michael Ovitz, have Elton and Bernie sign a welcome gift to you personally, have dinner with Madonna (and be slapped then huigged..), have Clive Davis proofread an invitation, and have John Dunbar asking to meet...
you seem to see people as... well people.
Yes, Ms. Shields is a self professed hypervigilant, but in her defense she has been manipulated by her $50,000 - to $200,000 a month security team that should know gay guys don't like-like girls. We certainly DON'T chase 'em.
Gavin deBecker and Associates should also know that at age 13-16, Brooke was my beard.
I was also solicited to join the fan club, it boasted correspondence, and most importantly the subscription was only for a year. And any "fan" related ended after I "came out" at 17.
If you are the nation's top threat assessor, I'd imagine they'd have done their high priced homework.
Especially all anyone would have had to do was google.
beard - Wiktionaryen.wiktionary.org › wiki › beard
(LGBT, slang) A fake customer or companion, especially a woman who accompanies a gay man in order to give the impression that he is heterosexual.
