|Shubin: Dismissed as not credible in April 2012.|
In February 10, 2012, Shubin had a heated discussion with Office of Attorney General (OAG) Agent Anthony Sassano, demanding that his client (who alleged to be Victim 2) be interviewed as part of the Sandusky investigation. During the discussion, Shubin claimed that there had been "both oral and anal sex" between his client and Sandusky.
Shubin's client was interviewed by Postal Inspection Service Agent, M. J. Coricelli on February 28th, March 8th, and March 16th, 2012. At no time during these interviews did his client corroborate Shubin's allegations. In fact, at the March 16th interview, his client stated that he had never discussed the specific details to anyone -- not even Shubin (Commonwealth v. Sandusky, PCRA Appendix, page 00447).
Shubin arranged for a April 4, 2012 meeting with Coricelli and Sassano to interview his client again.
When they arrived for the meeting, Shubin's client was absent. Coricelli was told that the client was too upset to be interviewed because of a recent death of a friend. Then Shubin attempted to provide Coricelli with three typed pages purported to be the allegations of his client.
Coricelli examined the document and surmised that it was written by Shubin. After consultation with Sassano, the decision was made that there would be no future investigation regarding Shubin's client. (Commonwealth v. Sandusky, PCRA Appendix, page 00448)
Shubin's recent filing for a protective order regarding John Doe 71 -- the individual featured in the preposterous story of a 1971 victim written by Sara Ganim -- stating his client can't be interviewed due to health and safety concerns. Shubin alleged his client has "significant emergent cardiac issues."
Translation: not diagnosed; no supporting medical records.
This is indeed an amusing argument, considering that his client told his story to a policeman in 2011 (who found it too crazy to be believed), then told the (bogus) story of his alleged victimization to Sara Ganim at CNN sometime in 2015, obviously re-told the story to Shubin at some point, then re-told it again while giving his deposition for the Penn State settlement.
That's at least four re-tellings since 2011 -- but one more may just cause his client to go into cardiac arrest.
The reality here is both Shubin and his client would go into cardiac arrest if they actually had to face some real questions about the preposterous story that was conjured up about a 1971 abuse incident.
That surely didn't happen when they told it to Penn State's settlement attorneys.
Note: Other instances of dishonesty by settlement attorneys will be highlighted in an upcoming blogpost.
