John Ziegler joins the Felony Friday show for a fourth time to expose the out of control fraud that has occurred during the Penn State settlement process as a resulted of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. .  

Some background on John Ziegler, he's a documentary filmmaker, director and author. John has a podcast called The World According to Zig, and he's a columnist at Mediaite. And he's without a doubt the most knowledgeable person on the Penn State/Sandusky/Paterno scandal. 

There are two reasons why I wanted to bring John back on the show. The first, HBO released their Paterno Movie and the absurd "Joe knew" story line is back in the mainstream media. The second, and the main reason why I invited John back on the show is because there's A LOT of new evidence in this case that is now available for public consumption. Most people don't know that John and Ralph Cipriano, also a previous guest on this show, had a massive article that was so very close to being published by Newsweek just prior to the release of the Paterno film. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. John is here to share what happened and to talk about all the new developments in the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky/Joe Paterno saga. Luckily, John has made the entire Newsweek article available on his website, linked below.

On today's episode of Felony Friday Ta'Rell Burton Sr. joins host John Odermatt to discuss his journey from convicted murderer to becoming a positive force for change in the community. 

Ta'Rell is the founder of A True Change, which is a non-profit organization that promotes stability and guidance to inner city at risk-youth and families by providing resources and education. The goal is to help these individuals build a foundation for self-betterment, achievements, and positive lifestyle change. 

In 2003, Ta’Rell made a mistake and angered a rival gang. Things escalated, and he found himself responsible for the death of another man. Ta'Rell was sentenced to 30 years in prison. He utilized the time by educating himself at Northeastern Junior College; he found solace in religion and in the thought of coming home to his daughter and son one day, no matter how many years that would take.

Ta'Rell spent thirteen years in prison. A week before he was to be released, rival gang members shot and killed his 18-year-old son. Now he strives to live for his son, as well as his daughter and two grandsons.

He’s acted as a motivational speaker, and he said that his hope is that talking about his struggles and triumphs will give someone the guidance they need to turn away from the path he took.

Today on Felony Friday Gracie Walker joins host John Odermatt to share how she spent more than a decade in prison for the "crime" of introducing two people. In 2007, Gracie was convicted of Conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance in the Northern District of Texas. She was sentenced to 290 months. Gracie was not charged or convicted of selling drugs, rather she was sentenced to prison for introducing two people.

When she was arrested, Gracie was a working single mother and had not been involved with drugs for over three years. She was not in possession of any contraband and no drugs were found in the house where she was arrested. Prosecutors did offer a plea deal in exchange for information, but since Gracie had not been selling drugs she did not have any information to offer, so she was convicted. Thankfully, after spending ten years in President Obama granted Gracie clemency, shaving at least ten years off her sentence.

On today's show Lynn Espejo joins Felony Friday host John Odermatt to share a shocking story of injustice. Lynn was indicted on wire fraud in 2011 and the charges were dismissed in 2012. She was indicted again in 2014 for wire fraud, money laundering, and tax fraud. During pre-trial a US Attorney was caught hiding evidence and an IRS agent was caught sharing Lynn's tax returns illegally with her husband's employer. The US Attorney was removed from my case but no penalty to him or IRS agent for their illegal behavior.

Lynn refused all plea deals and maintains her innocence. She was convicted Feb 2017 of all charges by jury after the judge blocked Lynn from telling the jury about the shredding of all the financial documents. She was sentenced November 2017 to 45 months and was ordered to pay $819K in restitution. Lynn is scheduled to report to Bryan Texas FPC on Feb 26th.
