SNITCHES GET STITCHES: Jason Bescoe Charged With Intimidating A Witness; New Criminal Charge Added To Wanna-Be Mafioso's Rap Sheet. Bescoe Arraigned August 19 On Embezzlement Charge


Anybody want to bet Jason Bescoe's favorite movie might be “The Godfather” or even “The Godfather II”?

In a famous scene from the second movie in the Godfather trilogy, ex-mafioso Frank Pentangeli is so scared when faced with a threat, (his brother walked into the room just before he was scheduled to testify in front of a congressional committee) he suddenly decides not to turn against the Corleone family in front of a congressional committee. 

Arabian horse-loving Goodrich, Michigan, resident Jason Bescoe was arraigned yesterday, September 6, 2017, in Genesee County's 67th District Court on one count of witness intimidation. 

While details are still unavailable, it's unlikely that Bescoe, a weasely Midwesterner suffering from an advanced case of male pattern baldness, was as tough as a member of the Corleone family.

I lived in Brooklyn, the 62nd Precinct, and saw tough guys every day.
Fuggeddaboutit!
I've seen tough, and you ain't tough, baby.

Michigan law has four variations of charges involving witnesses -- bribing or interfering with a witness to a crime punishable by 10 or fewer years in prison; doing the same when the crime is punishable by more than 10 years or life; intimidating a witness by committing a crime and/or threatening to kill or injure; and retaliating, attempting to retaliate, or threatening to retaliate against a witness who has testified. 

The first interference charge carries a four-year maximum penalty, and the latter carries a 10-year maximum penalty. The crime or threat charge carries a 15-year maximum penalty, while the retaliation charge carries a 10-year maximum. 

A probably cause hearing is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on September 14, 2017.
