Pulp Fiction Trial Ends

The trial of former Kingsmen Motorcycle Club president David Pirk, regional president Timothy Enix, and previously convicted murderer Andre Jenkins ended about one this afternoon after a trial that lasted 12 weeks and three days and included testimony from 60 witnesses.

All three men were convicted in federal court of criminal conspiracy; possession of firearms in furtherance of a crime of violence; using and maintaining premises for drug dealing; and possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. Pirk and Jenkins were also convicted of two counts of murder in aid of racketeering; and possession and discharge of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

It was the second time Jenkins was convicted of murdering Kingsmen Paul Maue and Daniel “DJ” Szymanski outside the club’s North Tonawanda clubhouse in the early morning hours of September 6, 2014. He was previously found guilty in a New York state court in 2015 and is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. There is no death penalty in New York. There is a federal death penalty.

Jenkins was also convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Live Kingsmen Or Die

The prosecution’s theory of the crime was that Pirk ordered Jenkins to kill Maue and Szymanski because Pirk thought the two were either going to defect to another club or lead a club revolt against him.

Pirk blamed the murders on a Kingsmen named Filip Caruso whom defense attorneys characterized as a violent drug dealer who loved his dog. Allegedly Maue killed Caruso’s dog and Caruso had said he intended to kill Maue. Pirk also thought the real killer might have been a former club member named Edgar Dekay II. Delkay had abandoned the Kingsmen to join a club named the Nickel City Nomads.

Pirk testified in his own defense last week and told the jury he thought it was probably Caruso who did it. “My suspicion was that it was Filly’s crew,” he said. “That it was Filly or his crew.”

“Did you order anyone to kill Paulie or DJ?” his lawyer asked him.

“No,” Pirk said.

The Blues To Come

Pirk’s defense was that he really wanted to kill Filly Caruso and that Maue and Szymanski were his accomplices in that murder plot but Caruso got to them first. Pirk also testified that Jenkins didn’t kill anybody. “He said he didn’t do it, Pirk said.

It was a bold defense strategy but the jury was not convinced that Filly did it. Other witnesses testified that Jenkins had admitted to the murder and also claimed that he had done it on Pirk’s behalf. Still other witnesses testified that some Kingsmen wanted to kill Jenkins for killing Maue and Szymanski but Pirk told them not to do it.

It only took the jury two days to make up its mind.

Pirk is 67-years-old and probably the best he can hope for is to die in prison. Enix is 59 and is facing 30 years. Jenkins could be sentenced to death.

Filip Caruso will stand trial later this year.

    A man was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt,
    But there was no corpse. In the defense’s closing statement the lawyer,
    knowing that his client would probably be convicted resorted to a trick.
    “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all,” the
    lawyer said as he looked at his watch.

    “Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into
    this courtroom.” He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat
    stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened. Finally
    the lawyer said, “Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all
    looked on with anticipation. I therefore put to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty.”

    The jury, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, they returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty. “But how?” inquired the lawyer. “You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door.”

    The jury foreman replied: “Oh, we all looked, but your client didn’t.”

    @ Bad Guy

    That double jeopardy stuff with the feds took off when they charged Stacy Koon for civil rights crimes and sent him to a federal joint. Koon was a Sargent on LAPD that was there when a Rodney King got tossed by the cops. The videos clearly showed Koon never touched King. As history is clear on the first trial the cops got off and the riots when down. The cops were found not guilty in large because, once King was stopped after the chase, he charged out of his car and grabbed a woman cop around the neck. How stupid is that, so the first jury wrote off King’s beating as tough shit. The feds had wanted a way to get at retraining people a second time in federal courts and Koon was the ticket. With the riots as the backdrop the jury was scared shitless to find Koon not guilty. The key here was civil rights are a federal thing so it wasn’t really double jeopardy in the Wordsmith game. But it’s now grown legs and is walking around as a different animal and is full on double jeopardy. Give government an inch and they will fuck you with that inch miles down the road.

    “It was the second time Jenkins was convicted of murdering Kingsmen Paul Maue and Daniel “DJ” Szymanski”…. how the heck can a person get convicted twice for the same crime? Has “double jeopardy” been overturned?

  4. FXDB Says:

    The entire trial was tantamount to a farce and a mockery of justice. The convictions rested on the testimony of rat fucks corroborating the testimony of more rat fucks, coupled with the U.S. Attorney intentionally dragging the trial out for months in order to wear out the jury – a commonly used ploy to effectively force a quick guilty verdict – the jurors were tired and wanted to be done with the trial.

    The truth of what happened and why never came out during the trial … because the three ON trial held it down and refused to roll like the pussies who did.

    Given their ages, the murder convictions are superfluous. Getting a hit on Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime is like getting life. They can get that thirty years just for the possession and discharge of the firearms in commission of.
