Garcetti Rumored to Turn State's Evidence
In a stunning turn of events, former District Attorney Roger Garcetti is rumored to have turned state's evidence in a corruption probe.
"The extent of Garcetti's alleged involvement is a surprise, but not the fact that he had mob ties," said Walt DeFabrizio, long time Gotham political commentator. "Garcetti has been dogged by rumors of mob connections for years."
DeFabrizio said Garcetti may have turned state's evidence in an act of vengeance. "There's no way he's going to let himself get taken down. If turning state's evidence keeps him out of jail, he's going to spill the beans."
One source told GCN that Garcetti may have made connections with the mob while he served as legal counsel to the policeman's union.
Only time will tell whether those beans form a trail that leads to mob involvement in the GPD, kickbacks, bribes, money laundering, or any number of other crimes. But one thing is for certain — this is one mob trial that will certainly keep Gotham jumping for weeks and months ahead.
