Jail Time For Former Brizzi Aide

A former spokesman for Marion Co. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi is headed to jail, but it's not for a crime that normally earns one time in the slammer. Mario Massillamany, 33, has been ordered to serve a 32-day sentence in the Hamilton County Jail after pleading guilty to drunk driving charges, his second DUI-related conviction in the last 10 years according to the Star's Robert Annis. Massillamany, a licensed attorney, received a 60-day sentence after Judge Gail Bardach rejected a plea agreement offered by the Hamilton Co. Prosecutor's office that would have sentenced him to 20 days in the county jail and suspended his driver's license for one year.

The Hamilton Co. criminal justice system has proven far less lenient to Massillamany, who now resides in Logansport, than it has to date with the four former Carmel High School basketball players accused of sexually assaulting a freshman member of the team. Hamilton Co. Prosecutor Sonia Leerkamp has offered plea deals to three of the four players to date that allows them to participate in a diversionary program that allows them to avoid any jail sentence after pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault charges.

I was wondering...Why does Corrupt Carl Brizzi offer sentences substantially more lenient than Hamilton County, Indiana???

I guess in Hamilton County it is considered more severe to be drunk that it is to engage in sexually perverted activities. What kind of people live in Carmel??

As someone who has worked for Mario- believe me- other than Carl Brizzi himself, NO ONE in the Marion County Republican Party deserves to be behind bars more than him. He DEFINES sleaze bag.
