All of that meant nothing to Manuel Cordero. Give him an ample bottomed rubenesque Woman any day of the week. And in the end, his love of rear ends cost him his life.
David Ovalle of the Herald has done it again, as he …ummm…
….the murder of Manuel Cordero who was killed by the boyfriend of a well endowed woman who was going to Cordero’s home for a photo session.
The article reports that ASA Laura Adams helped police get the warrant and that Perry Bailey, the aforementioned apple bottomed affection of Cordero’s eye, is cooperating.
Known as the Boss before Springsteen was playing the Stone Pony, Gerstein was the State Attorney before Janet Reno. A man admired for his loyalty to his assistants and ex-assistants. And if you know many who worked for Gerstein you know that that loyalty is a two way street. And yet, there were rumors, whispers, and unsubstantiated allegations. In the aftermath of our post on Joe Gersten, there has arisen a hue and cry for information on the man whose name graces our place of business.
Come on you old time ASA’s. Now is the time to write your memories of the man who was criminal law in Miami for decades.
What many people may not know was that Gerstein and the Miami Dade SAO were involved in the investigation of the Watergate break in. Pretty heady stuff for a small southern prosecutor's office. There are probably a thousand Gerstein stories out there and we'd like to hear a few.
ASA Michael Bienstock passed away the other day. Mr. Bienstock ran for County Court Judge in the last election. Mr. Bienstock had spent his career as a prosecutor setting up and then working in the Child Support division.
We never met Mr. Bienstock but the Herald article HERE reported on the over one hundred thousand children who benefited from Mr. Bienstock's work. Although he died way too early at 59, Mr. Bienstock leaves a legacy of concern and action on behalf of children. What a wonderful way to be remembered.
Here is the comment Judge Joe Fernandez left yesterday:
Michael was a gentleman during our race. The only time we saw each other after the election, we shook hands and he was extremely gracious. Besides wanting to become a judge we had at least one other thing in common--a loving and supportive family.
I know they are missing him terribly.
