NEW YORK – A prosecutor says a Republican U.S. Senate candidate from New York told investigators that a conservative scholar and author from San Diego lied to her about the source of campaign donations.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie Cohen made the disclosure Friday as Dinesh D’Souza pleaded not guilty to charges that he violated campaign finance laws. D’Souza is the creator of the documentary “2016: Obama’s America.”

The film theorizes President Barack Obama is motivated by his father’s dream to take down imperialist countries like the U.S.

“The U.S. could be a scary place in 2016,” D’Souza said in the film

He was released after his Manhattan court appearance on $500,000 bond. His travel is restricted to the United States.

Cohen says D’Souza directed $20,000 in illegal contributions to be made to candidate Wendy Long. She lost to Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand in last year’s election.

D’Souza reimbursed the donors for the money, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say the criminal case resulted from a routine review by the FBI of campaign filings by various candidates after the Senate race.

Defense attorney Benjamin Brafman says there is not much disagreement over what happened, only whether the actions broke laws.

Defense attorney Michael Crowley, who isn’t affiliated with the case, has worked federal cases for nearly three decades. He told 10News, “You’re basically laundering the money, that’s what illegal, and I think prosecutors are trying to send a message that it won’t be tolerated.”

Crowley doesn’t expect prosecutors to relent when it comes to a fairly common crime that’s often hard to prove.

He points out that using straw donors was at the center of the so-called “Strippergate” in San Diego, a scandal in which local city council members were accused of corruption.

Crowley represented a councilmember’s aide, who was acquitted.

“That’s how the investigation started — in the strip club, with the manager allegedly giving reimbursements to the dancers to write checks to the candidates,” said Crowley.

Federal drug indictment dismissed because of unlicensed prosecutor

by Michael Chen

SAN DIEGO – A federal judge’s stunning decision to toss out a drug indictment could have a ripple effect on other cases.

Sources told 10News Assistant U.S. Attorney Jaime Parks was considered a rising star. Among her recent cases: 12,000 pounds of marijuana seized off a boat in Long Beach in December. Two men, Jose Usiel Garcia-Andrade and Rigoberto Gonzalez, were arrested and indicted by a grand jury.

However, a federal judge just tossed out the indictment.

“I would characterize it as an embarrassment for the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” said defense attorney Michael Crowley.

Crowley, who has handled more than 100 drug cases, said the case has been the talk of the legal community.

A judge has ruled that at the time Parks secured the indictment she was not a licensed attorney.

Months earlier, in February, Parks had made her California Bar status inactive and tried to make her Virginia license active. 10News was told federal prosecutors can practice as long as they are licensed somewhere in the U.S.

The problem was the judge ruled Parks did not complete the required seminars and classes to activate her Virginia license and was technically not an attorney.

It’s unclear why Parks become inactive in California, but an online search showed annual dues in Virginia are several hundred dollars less.

As for the Long Beach case, prosecutors now plan to a seek a new indictment on the same charges, but defense lawyers told 10News they will head to an appellate court to toss it out on the same grounds.

That possibility means a lingering impact that could extend to other cases. Parks may have practiced for than three months without a license, 10News learned.

“It has the potential to have those cases dismissed because she was operating without a license,” said Crowley.

An online search showed Parks worked on about 13 cases during that time, mostly drug cases. The defendants could now be looking at sentences that are more lenient.

“When there’s something the government has not properly done, you would use that as leverage to get a better deal for your client,” said Crowley.

Experts say criminal charges against Parks are unlikely, but she could face an investigation and possible sanctions from a state bar association for practicing without a license.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy stated, “While this is a regrettable situation, it was an oversight with no intent to deceive. We take licensing requirements very seriously and this is an isolated occurrence. The case was dismissed without prejudice, and we have since filed a new indictment charging the same offenses.”

Sources also told 10News Parks is still working at the U.S. Attorney’s San Diego office.

SAN DIEGO – A Poway man whose son was at their home with a 17-year-old friend who died from a gunshot wound pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of improper storage of a loaded firearm and was immediately sentenced to three years probation.

Kevin Brennick, 50, must take parenting and firearm safety classes and perform 40 hours of community service. He can apply to have the conviction dismissed after successfully completing 18 months on probation.

The premise of the unlawful storage charge was that the defendant knew or reasonably should have known that a child was likely to gain access to the firearm without parental permission and thereby cause death or great bodily injury.

Brennick will not be allowed to own or possess firearms while he’s on probation, said his attorney, Michael Crowley.

Brennick did the “noble” thing by admitting guilt in the case involving the death of Luke Lipscomb, even though he had viable defenses had the case gone to trial, Crowley said.

“It would have put the family of the Lipscombs through a great deal of extra anguish and he’s very sorry for the loss of their son and what happened at his home,” Crowley said outside the courtroom. “He (Brennick) agreed to have some closure both for the family and for himself on this case.”

Crowley said Brennick has changed his opinion about guns and now does not favor having firearms in any residence.

Most of Brennick’s firearms were secured in safes in his home, but the .22-caliber rifle used in Lipscomb’s death was left unsecured in the kitchen and was used by the defendant to keep “varmints” away from his backyard in rural Poway, Crowley said.

Even though Brennick will do no jail time, Crowley said the plea was an “acceptable” disposition of the case and said Brennick accepted responsibility for what he did.

A civil action is pending, Crowley said.

The attorney said the Lipscombs and the Brennicks were “close” before Luke Lipscomb died. Crowley said the Lipscombs have since moved out of the neighborhood.

The teen is believed to have shot himself between the eyes on Nov. 4, 2011, in Brennick’s home on Midland Road. The Poway High School junior died at a hospital two weeks later. No adults were present at the time of the shooting.

According to court documents, the boy was with his friends, including Brennick’s son, smoking marijuana the night of the shooting.

He began hallucinating — possibly because the cannabis was laced with a designer drug — and hit himself in the head with a frying pan before shooting himself, according to a search warrant affidavit.
