Gayle Ingersoll's attorney, Joan Morgan, filed a motion this afternoon (September 30) seeking an order to quash the subpoena requiring him to testify during his brother Steven Ingersoll's October 20 sentencing hearing.
In the motion, Morgan states “Gayle Ingersoll’s testimony may violate his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself. The court must insure that his answers cannot possibly have a tendency to incriminate him, to provide a link in the chain of evidence against him, to provide investigatory leads to a criminal prosecution, and it protects against disclosures that he reasonably believes could be used in a criminal prosecution against him, including a state prosecution.”
Good God, even Robert Blake knew “don't do the crime if you can't do the time!”
In the motion, Morgan states that if the court refuses to grant the request to quash the subpoena, Gayle Ingersoll requests that the court set a date for his appearance. (Apparently, Gayle Ingersoll has conflicts with other court appearances for each day during the week of October 20, 2015. Wonder if he's taking a short trip down to Boca Raton?)
Miss Fortune is waiting for another shoe to drop — wanna bet Tammy Bradley is next with her motion to quash?
NOTE: Gayle Ingersoll was acquitted of the three counts against him: Count 1, Bank Fraud Conspiracy; Count 2, Conspiracy to Defraud the United States/Internal Revenue Service, and Count 5, Wire Fraud. These acquittals, however, do not protect him against charges by the State of Michigan, or other charges by the federal government (e.g., for substantive tax violations).
