Leroy Thorpe's Emergency Plea For Help
On October 2, 2009 Thorpe's good friend Ernest Peterson stopped by his house to have a friendly chat with Thorpe. In this audio file and subsequent court documents, Thorpe "claimed" that Moulton manipulated Ernest Peterson to persuade Thorpe to drop the case on Oct. 2, 2009. Had Thorpe listened to Mr Peterson, he would have likely avoided his recent criminal conviction from the October 19, 2009 false MPD 911 complaint.
Regardless, this was another complete waste of precious MPD resources, since three officers left their posts monitoring and deterring crime in Washington DC's violent, gang-infected Shaw community, to respond to Thorpe's home to process this complaint.
In his May 4, 2010 trial, Thorpe begged and pleaded for the judge not to convict him, saying
Judge Frederick Sullivan actually ruled to convict Thorpe once, but he reopened the case to let Thorpe testify on his own behalf -- against Thorpe's attorney's advice. Then Judge Sullivan reiterated his decision to convict Thorpe.
