Miss Fortune has been doing an excellent job as always of covering the pre-trial shenanigans of taxpayer money embezzler, for-profit charter school manager Dr. Steve Ingersoll. The latest silliness that compelled the judge to make yet another decision about the optometrist’s behavior included telling Ingersoll flat out he wasn’t allowed to talk to the prosecution’s witnesses in the upcoming case.
Now why would a judge need to do that?
Because Ingersoll insists that this list of witnesses are his personal friends and professional associates, and the government has no right to make him stay away from them. There is also the business of Steve Ingersoll’s brother, Gayle, ambushing witnesses in the Ray Bradley asbestos trial outside the courthouse in Bay City to hand out subpoenas from a new lawyer Ray Bradley hired to represent him after he was convicted of 4 counts of illegal asbestos removal from a building now being used as a school.
We’re days away from the main event, and Steve Ingersoll is losing control of the situation. Rapidly. Hopefully when this trial is over the doctor will lose even more, like his freedom for the next 30 years.
