Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Your honor, I was drunk

But your honor, I was drunk: Wow. It gets better and better. Local blogging can be hard, but not with news like this. Beth Geisel's lawyer has opened her defense by playing the Joe Namath card (Hat Tip: AlbanyEye). As the TU reports:
Geisel is dealing with alcoholism, Albany attorney Donald T. Kinsella said. "She did an in-house rehabilitation at St. Peter's and is going to AA meetings every day," he said. The treatment began after she left CBA, he said. "There's no question that anybody who knows anything about this ... alcohol is a factor in her situation," Kinsella said.
David Soares, however, doesn't want to hear it:
District Attorney David Soares feels differently. "I certainly don't believe that alcohol or depression are mitigating factors in this case."
Good for you, David. If you can't make it to class in college because you're hung over, we understand. If you're arrested for DWI and you're an alcoholic, we might listen. But who on earth uses the booze defense to answer charges of statutory rape? She probably bought the kegs for the last CBA houseparty. And a nice move by Soares to pre-empt on the inevitable depression card. That forces Kinsella to head toward either an "abused as a child" trial-balloon or a "past suicide attempts" gambit.

I don't have the radio on right now, but I'm sure that "Wakin' up with the Wolf" on PYX 106 is having a field day with her mugshot. She actually looks pretty good, at least compared to James Brown or David Crosby! I can't wait till J.R. comes on the air this afternoon.

The way this thing is headed, we might just get a homemade sex tape to surface. Then you can forget the New York Post, she'll be on the cover of the London tabloids.
