On October 7, 2015, computer hacker Matthew Keys was found guilty of…. computer hacking (of course). This was after a jury trial in which Keys was represented by that most ablest of attorneys, Jason (Jay) Leiderman of Ventura, California. Leiderman presented no witness, nor did Keys testify. So, clearly, Keys got his money’s worth when the jury came back with a GUILTY verdict on all counts in just a few short hours.
Although this case has drawn attention because of Matthew Keys’ employment in the news media, this was simply a case about a disgruntled employee who used his technical skills to taunt and torment his former employer.
—- United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner
So we fast forward to April 13, 2016, when Keys faced the judge for sentencing. Leiderman and Keys both bragged online about how Keys would be getting probation and would be walking out a free man.
Clearly Matthew Keys made the smart decision when he and his family decided to hire Jay Leiderman. Nothing could go wrong with that, eh?
When Keys and Leiderman walked into federal court today they were expecting probation. But apparently that was not good enough for ace attorney (and admitted drug user) Jay Leiderman. Nope, not one bit!
In fact as far as Leiderman was concerned, that sentence was not harsh enough!
What? Hey, BV Files! Why Would Leiderman want Keys to get a harsh prison sentence? you ask.
Well it is because Leiderman needs the publicity in order to get his face into the paper so that stupid people (like Matthew Keys and his family) will hire him. Unfortunately for Jay Leiderman’s clients, Leiderman put them all on the back-burner so he could file a series of cross-country SLAPP suits in an effort to drum up publicity for James McGibney (who we don’t like) and ViaView’s hoped for Rolling Stone magazine article and Warner Brothers television deal. Because Leiderman cares more about the sexual blackmail of little girls then his actual, paying clients – his clients on trial for their lives and freedom.
When Leiderman started to make his arguments to the judge, it seemed readily apparent to all of the court room observers that Leiderman was, yet again, under the influence of drugs when he starting trying to compare Matthew Keys, (a person of clearly limited intelligence and low breeding), with Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.
People just could not believe that Leiderman would be stupid enough to pull a stunt like this. But, clearly, they don’t know Leiderman like we know Leiderman. Are we right?
The funniest part was when Leiderman tried to claim that,
Keys maintains that he was taking the anti-depressant Trazodone during the time when the FBI interviewed him. He argues that because he was “medicated”, his statements during the FBI interview were and remain unreliable.
In our opinion, this is such a weak argument that we are surprised that Leiderman even attempted it. (no, we’re not)
Leiderman further compounds his error by making citations to things that are not even a part of the record and to stuff the Assistant U.S. Attorney never even heard of before!
We here at the BV Files are simply shocked at the Vicodin fueled antics of attorney Jay Leiderman. Shocked, we tell ya!!
If you read the interview transcript Keys had with the FBI, where he admitted giving CMS credentials and sending the emails, it certainly does not seem like he was medicated or whacked out of his gourd on drugs. Matthew Keys was lucid, he was explaining how he was disgruntled with his employers. He even told the FBI about the VPN services he found and a lot of other details without being pushed or lead by the interviewer.
While the initial sentence sought by the prosecutors (of some eight years!) is too long, Keys’ interview with the FBI is pretty convincing evidence that he did it.
We here at the BV Files personally think that Keys realized that he did something dumb by admitting to everything at the interview and was trying to walk it back (unsuccessfully).
PRO TIP: One more observation about the FBI interview: You would have to be a Grade A moron to agree to waiving your Miranda rights and not having a lawyer present while being interviewed by law enforcement. Does not matter if you did it, if you did not do it, or if you are looking to cut a deal by cooperating (which is what Keys was trying to do), you do not waive Miranda rights and you always have your lawyer there.
Keys self-confessed on tape and he turned down three plea deals. What else did he expect would happen to him today?
Yet now both he and Leiderman are on the Twitter machine tonight claiming that today was a “big victory” and that getting to appeal this prison sentence is really a good thing – seriously!
Keys just cannot help himself with his stupid arrogance, he is even now tormenting his victims – which we think is a violation of his bond conditions.
If anyone wishes to let Matthew Keys know that he now has yet another ground for appealing his case – Leiderman’s ineffective assistance of counsel – please let him know ASAP as time is running out!
AND NOW SOME UPDATES….
According to James McGibney (who we don’t like) this order here means that he is the one who is really winning in this case and that American Hero & Honorary Admin of the BV Files Thomas Retzlaff will be soon on his way to jail, courtesy of Nederland, TX based private investigator Philip Klein (who regularly claims that he will be the one to catch TR and bring him kicking and screaming to the court in San Jose).
And if Retzlaff is really afraid of losing this case, why then did he ask the court for an accelerated review of this case, which the court granted? CHECK IT OUT!
AND WHAT ABOUT PHILIP….
Philip Klein will be facing a court-ordered deposition in the San Antonio lawsuit on May 3, 2016, where he will be asked a whole bunch of questions about things that he would prefer to not have to talk about, such as:
- Did Klein really eat the body of DeOrr Kunz and that is why no one can find him?
- What was Klein doing in Phoenix last week?
- How often does Klein have sex with sheeps?
- Is John Morgan really a child abusing drug addict that everyone claims?
- How often does Klein have sex with goats?
This deposition will be videotaped.
THIS PERSON IS DEAD….
She died on November 11, 2015.
If you can guess where American Hero & Honorary Admin of the BV Files Neal Rauhauser is you can win a NEW CAR!
