Today, Jose Linares, United States District Court Judge, Newark, New Jersey dismissed the Federal Indictment brought against Guy Gentile in March 2016 by the Newark United States Department of Justice (DOJ),
In reality, the US Government arrested him “for his rolodex” and bullied him into cooperation, compelling him to believe he did not have a choice in the matter. Gentile believed that his only option was to cooperate: the government threatened to go after his family, friends and employees, shut down his businesses and, more importantly, freeze his bank accounts so he couldn’t defend himself. If he did not cooperate, the government would have completely destroyed him and those around him.
After three years of exemplary cooperation which brought the NJ DOJ convictions like never before, the government did an about face and charged Gentile again in March 2016 when he informed them he would no longer cooperate and to let him go, free, as agreed. Due to his compelled cooperation, the aftermath of his position with the DOJ and FBI caused severe damage: his loss of life long friends and the divorce of his wife whom he loved dearly; loss of employees and businesses; he lost his position in volunteer services and had over 10 banking relationships terminated which severely and negatively impacted his life & businesses in addition to the cost of millions of dollars defending himself. Even having endured what amounted to an involuntary servitude, Gentile never said why him? He held his head high because he knew he was not guilty of the charges and did everything he could to continue to live his life and tried to stay strong for the people who loved him and believed in him.
Statement of Thanks and Appreciation from Guy Gentile:
It has been a grueling few years as I’ve battled to clear my name and often, in my lowest points, it’s been the love and support of the very many wonderful friends, (some of whom I’ve not heard
from in years!) and the stalwart advocates of justice who have rallied me when I needed it most. Thank you so much to my family, friends, loyal staff, colleagues, business associates and the
readers who follow me on social media including this web site. Your sentiments and encouraging shout-outs have meant a lot to me, perhaps more that you’ll ever really
This has been tough, and reading your words such as, “keep the faith” and “stay strong” have motivated and compelled me to carry on and to finally reach this day of triumph.
Also of course, I want to acknowledge the skill-sets, consistent hard work and efforts beyond the pale of my legal team of Joseph Tacopina & Chad Seigle of Tacopina & Seigle, PC, and Adam
C. Ford of Ford O’Brian LLP. Thank you so much legal team!
I also want to thank my friend and excellent personal attorney Carla Marin, who gave me the strength to stand up fight the all mighty U.S. Government. You never wavered in your belief in me or that justice would prevail and we’d win the day!
