041 – The Blinsky Chronicles -10- Remember the Heroes



Who are you? Who were you before? Who will you become?

Before Agent X, before the Nemesis, Jared Blinsky was so moved by the events of 9/11 that in 2002 he created the annual Ride for Pride that has been taking place in central Ohio ever since. It’s primary purpose was to honor the men and women who served our country, and it peacefully brought together very diverse groups of bikers, including the Axemen, the Gunslingers, the Outlaws and B.A.C.A.. The ride grew each year to create the Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial in Sunbury, Ohio, honoring all Ohio military killed in the war on terrorism.

Fast-forward to 2009 when Jared has been caught as “the ringleader” of an extensive local grow operation and has pled guilty to charges that carry a minimum 5-years federal prison sentence.  Will the judge be motivated to override the mandatory minimum? Wait til you hear the rest of the story…

The guys talk mitigation, throwing the horns, sentencing hearings, 51k, and adding color to the space-time continuum.

040 – Blinsky Chronicles-9-Meet Your Nemesis



After pleading guilty to a federal crime, dealing with the pre-sentencing interview and report comes next. The probation officer writes a report that is meant to help the judge decide sentencing. But what if your probation officer doesn’t like you?

Jared talks frankly with Steve and Jeff about how his dyslexia and ADHD adversely affected this meeting. The guys talk coping strategies, knowing what’s in your checking account, allocution, the importance of really getting to know your client – and how to get a judge to look up at you over their glasses.

039 – The Blinsky Chronicles-8-Velvet Curtains and Constitutional Rights



Ever wondered what it would be like to be processed into a federal detention center, waiting prosecution? What federal court is like? Or what it would feel like if given the choice to give up some of your constitutional rights – for the rest of your life – in exchange for a few extra years of freedom?

In this eighth episode of The Blinsky Chronicles, Jared talks with the guys about brown paper bag socks, going from being the tough guy to asking God to walk with him for whatever came next, and the day he met Steve Palmer in person for the first time – and Steve’s surprising advice to Jared. “As you said it, you laid a hand on my shoulder, you looked into my eyes……and that made me breathe…”

 


034 – The Blinsky Chronicles -7- Chicken Man, Grasshopper And Fly Fishing



When a bunch of young guys from Ohio who are flush with cash from their local grow operation decide to buy a limo off of Ebay, they decide to make an event out of their trip to pick it up in New York City. Custom suits, loud dinners in Little Italy, booze and weed-fueled parties, and the Presidential Suite at the Waldorf Astoria. Like Ohio does the movie “Swingers” in NYC. But turns out the Russians with the limo for sale are under federal investigation – and it’s not for growing weed….

Also covered: fun facts about how the law defines a conspiracy, and possession vs. ownership.

Find out what happens next when guns, drugs, airstrips and some unsavory Russians are added to the mix….why the feds might find it hard to believe that you just like fly fishing…and what can be the unintended consequences of buying a limo off of Ebay.

030 – The Blinsky Chronicles–6a–Agent X, We Meet Again…and The Defense Begins



Steve,Jeff and Jared talk Weed Porn, High Times, silver trays of weed at the Christmas party and posting dumb pics, search and seizure, being polite to the S.W.A.T. team, guns, drugs and the federal sentencing guidelines, tomatoes and The Lakers, directional microphones,  eggshell skulls, snitches, forfeiture laws, the hidden stash, converting cash to drugs, possession, the D.E.A., volcanoes, and federal agents making sweet love in the trash cases.

Talking barbecue and Buckeyes with federal marshals, Larry Flint Jr. and the Larry Scare, having a greenhouse in the basement, when the Feds take your phones – who’s Stinky? – chatter, and when the friendly guy in the ball cap ends up being the head honcho – hello, Agent X.
