Woman admits to lying for, about Bashara, his dead wife



A former Chicago police officer who said she met Bob Bashara over a web site testified Tuesday she tried to tarnish Jane Bashara’s name and lied for and about him following his wife’s murder.

Therese Giffin took the stand in Bashara’s murder trial and said that, at Bashara’s request, she posted a blog on the web site, thehinkymeter.com, to taint Jane Bashara’s reputation in order to steer police away from his as a suspect in her death.

In damaging testimony, Giffen said Bashara wanted “posts kind of like making Jane not look so good, that she could’ve possibly had a boyfriend who would’ve done it. It would have made them (police) look in another direction, not him.”

From your link:

" ....They communicated regularly during their more than two-year relationship. Giffin, tall, thin, with short blonde hair, was considered as a potential second “slave” to Bashara. But she said she was rejected in fall 2011 as the third member of a threesome to reside with Bashara and Gillett because she had a minor child living with her; Bashara and Gillett wanted “adults only.”

She also admitted she lied to investigators about her relationship with Bashara because of the “embarrassment.”

She failed to tell police about a session with Bashara in his “dungeon,” the basement of a Grosse Pointe bar he owned, in which she was tied to a bondage “cross,” and he flogged her. They also engaged in a sexual act but did not have sex, she added.

She said she saw him when he went to Chicago for an event related to his involvement in the local Rotary Club.

After Jane Bashara’s death, she hoped to continue a relationship with Bashara, Giffen testified.

“He was going to make me his slave,” she told Assistant Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey. “When he cleared his name.”

Giffen stopped communication after her home was searched by police and her computers were seized. ...."

When the Bashara case first broke, I recall "spitting" with one or maybe two other posters. We called him the Blob, the Blop, etc., and one of the other posters came out of the wall and felt we were being terribly rude to a man who was deep in grieving, whose wife had cheated on him, etc.. I just can't recall what her posting name was... Shocked

Val had a greater impact on ferreting out the truth and sharing the info than I would have guessed at the time... Miss her!

She complained because her lies were not believed?
Val did not allow anyone to slander a victim without cause! Period.
She wanted only facts posted. If it was opinion, she wanted that stated up front. And facts needed to be linked! Very professional person and I admired her for her running of a wonderful posting site. Cool

Sorry, just got up and will post now. Here are some that
I with my big mouth have to reply on.


'When questioned, Wolf agreed he never saw Bob lose his temper, and that he spoke well of his wife, although she wasn't into the SM lifestyle."

Of course he did (which I find odd cuz of the way he treated other people) cuz she was his meal ticket and atm. He was supposed to be a property manager but I say he couldn't manage an ant farm if he had one.

"It is taking the attention away from the jury about what is the testimony of the witnesses. And it's only happening with the two ladies."

"Lindsey pointed out that in her comments, she pointed out the rules of evidence. "I didn't say anything negative about her.."

"I think it's somewhat unfair for me to get chastized when I'm properly citing rules of evidence."
Judge: "It's becoming combative."
Judge: "I'm watching (the jury) watch you all. Miss Diallo: I understand you are very passionate."

"Diallo: "Whatever he wanted to be called."
Judge: "You didn't have to say that. You could've just said 'thank you.'"

"Moran asked that his face not be shown, and his name withheld by the media. Diallo objected because his name is part of the record."

"But the judge agreed, so we're not allowed to even mention this guy's name."

"Mr. X said Bob wanted him to do harm to Steve Tibaudo. "But he didn't know I knew Steve."

"He wanted him killed, because he said Steve talked him into ...killing Joseph Gentz. And set him up."

"Witness didn't tell Bob he knew Steve. "He called him a fat f*ck; said he carried a .38. He basically didn't have anything good to say."

"He was upset; that's why he wanted him dead."

"Also, Bob told his cellmate he wanted someone to kill a guy named Timothy Ramsey. "He said Ramsey...keeps talking a lot of mess about him"
(Who is Timothy Ramsey??

"I told him that wouldn't be no problem. I told him I got a nephew that would do it."

"Bob's cellmate: "He said Joe Gentz killed his wife."

"He asked if I could reach out and touch (Gentz)." That's prison slang for having him hurt or killed. "I told him yes."

"Bob told his cellmate: "I can't believe they're going to believe that fu#$ing retard over me."

"Bob was playing cards with his cellmate. "I said 'you killed your fu$%king wife, man." Bob told him he didn't."
But he was there!!!

"I told him he paid Joseph Gentz to kill his wife; he said, 'that's why I need that fu$%er dead.'"

"Bob also told his cellmate that Gentz was "the only witness."

"I told him it's gonna cost him. He asked how much. I said probably 5-10 grand apiece. He told me he was having problems with his money."

"After we figured he didn't have the money, he brought up some property around Finney High School."

"He said it was a good investment."

"He said I could rent out one part for $600 and stay in the other part free. The person that's doing the killing; they could get the house."

Bob told him Falcinetti, Sir Rick had power of attorney, and that he met him "through the lifestyle."

"Cellmate's aunt was in real estate; Bob suggested she appraise the house. He wanted Sir Rick to set up the deal."

"Bob wrote the address on a piece of paper, which his cellmate later gave to investigators."
What a moron !

"Cellmate wrote a letter to Kym Worthy. "I have some important information I would like to share with you."

"Cellmate wanted his sentence reduced in exchange for information about Bob. Prosecutors didn't offer that, though."

"Bob often wrote notes to his cellmate. "He thought the room was bugged; he said he had a high-profile case."

"When discussing hits, Bob "would write it down, then tear it up and flush it."
He was on a roll wasn't he.

"Video of the witness and Bob walking in the Oaks prison yard being shown."

"Bob had "Sir Rick/Midnight Ryder" Falcinelli put $50 into his cellmate's prison account in June, 2013."

"One day when Bob was in the holding area with his cellmate: “Somebody hollered something about ‘Rat.’” Then someone threatened him."

"This was right before he testified in the prelim."

"Witness said his sentence was lowered by a year because of a mistake in his sentencing."

"He's stressing that the reduction in his sentence is not because he agreed to testify."

"Because the guidelines weren't scored right, his sentence was reduced from 10-30 to 9-30."

"Bob told his cellmate about a slave from Pennsylvania. "That he could depend on her; that she was loyal to him."

"Bob also told his cellmate he didn't have sex w Jane because he had erectile dysfunction."

"Bob also asked how much it would have to have Asst. Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey killed. "He called her a black bitch."

"I told him, 'It is what it is; she can't just make up evidence and put it there." He also told Bob it would be hard to kill a prosecutor."

"I just said, 'That's a big order.' We talked about it that one time; we never talked about it again."

"Direct questioning over. Before cross-exam, the witness asked: "Is it possible I could speak with my lawyer for a second?"

"Judge called for a 10-minute recess to allow him to talk to his lawyer."

"As jury left, judge peeked into their room and laughed. "It looks like a grocery store in there!" because of all the food."

Witness: Wife told Bashara 'don't embarrass the family'

By Elisha Anderson, Detroit Free Press  8:32 p.m. EST November 17, 2014

Bob Bashara, who is charged in the 2012 death of his wife, Jane Bashara, said Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey was "out to get him," according to the man's testimony.

A man who shared a prison cell with Bob Bashara testified the former Grosse Pointe Park businessman shared a conversation Bashara had with his wife.

Jane Bashara told her husband, whatever he did, "just don't embarrass the family," Bob Bashara's former cellmate at the Oaks Correctional Facility in Manistee said Monday.

Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Robert Moran asked that the name of the 56-year-old witness not be used, citing concern for his safety in prison.

The witness testified Bashara wanted four people killed, including a prosecutor.

She will allow live-streaming for closing arguments and the verdict.

Judge just said she expects the trial to last about 10 more days. There are betwen 10-20 witnesses left, she said.

Judge clarified: She tweeted while on the record, but while the jury was out of the room: "We were not in session."

The media asked the judge about her tweet earlier today; she said she did it during the break.

Judge says attorneys on each side have to hammer out which witnesses will testify tomorrow. It won't be Steve Virgona, though.

We're done for the day, because of Diallo's illness.


Virgona was Diallo's witness, and the judge said he will have to testify Thursday.

Lindsey said Steve Virgona will testify tomorrow. He's the one who convinced Gentz to turn himself in.

Bob said if Diallo is too sick to proceed tomorrow, he's happy to just have McCarthy represent him.

Sir Rick is done testifying.

Rick said he didn't comply with Bob's request to dig up dirt on some BDSM acquaintances, and he said he's still friends with some of them.

Among the BDSM people Bob wanted discredited: Patrick Webb, "Sir Patrick" who testified earlier; and someone named Shelly.

Bob's letter: "Any digging you can to is helpful to our team."

In Bob's letter, he complained people in the BDSM lifestyle were lying about him, and he asked Sir Rick to dig up info on them.

He also watches Fox News and Judge Jeanine Pirro
roflao newspaper

On Sir Rick's facebook page, he likes Northbound Leather and Faygo pop.

Rick found 5-6 promissary notes to Bob's mother for about $283,000-286,000." He also said Bob "made a lot of bad financial decisions."

"It's a power exchange."

Sir Rick's voice seemed angry as he defended. "The submissive gives control to the dominant; he or she doesn't take it. It's a gift."

Sir Rick: "That's where the whole question is wrong in the first place; you don't gain control." Lisa: "Didn't u say it was about control?"

Lisa: "So some of the domination doesn't have to do w their body; it has to do with controlling their mind." Sir Rick didn't agree

Lindsey: "The (BDSM) lifestyle is about power and control, right? And sometimes you have to engage in manipulative behavior to gain control?

Lisa: "And you said the judge was an effing idiot, didn't you?" Vonda: "You weren't talking about THIS court, were you?" Laughter


Rick at one point said, "They don't know who the hell they're dealing with." regarding prosecutors, and them questioning him.

Rick to Lindsey: "You seem to be focusing on a lot of my trash talk." Judge cut him off: "Excuse me."

McCarthy done with his cross-exam.

Rick says he had no idea the $50 he put into the prison account of Bob's cellmate had to do with payment for a hit.

Sir Rick: "I would've kicked his butt" and tried to stop him from having someone killed, had he known.

That's at BDSM parties.

Sir Rick says he never saw Bob do cocaine. "We even frown on people using alcohol."

McCarthy: "And it's all adults who do this?" Rick: "Some of the best adults I know." awe


Judge: "And they do this at the VFW Hall?" Sir Rick: "Let tell you: 100% support. We fought for the right to do this."

Rick: "BDSM is kind of like foreplay."

Judge: "The equipment is sexual in nature. It's not like a boom box. It's sexual stuff, right or wrong?"
Shocked

Judge: "There's bondage...domination." Rick: There's a lot about the lifestyle "that's not very sexual at all."

Judge asked how, specificallly, the lifestyle has been negatively portrayed. "A lot of salaciousness...implies isn't what it's about"

"People who were watching that stuff don't have a clue what the lifestyle is about."

"I wanted to stop some of the...vitriol that was said about the lifestyle. Moreso than the murder, because I didn't have much to do w that."

Sir Rick: "I was almost more upset about the way the (BDSM) lifestyle was being portrayed; it was very one-sided."

Rick said he stored Jane's ashes with Bob's stuff.



Lisa: "Is it fair to say you stored them with your sexual paraphernalia?"
McCarthy objected to relevance; Judge sustained.

There was a dispute with Jane’s family about her ashes. Sir Rick took them and put them in his basement.

Rick expressed concern about distributing some of Bob's money.

Judge again admonishing Sir Rick for not answering yes or no.

Wolf testified yesterday. He apparently owned a few Detroit-area porn theaters.


I was just told that Laurence Wolf, Bob's BDSM buddy, is the guy who supposedly was involved in "Behind the Green Door" movie.

After the sale, a real estate agent contacted Rick about an action to freeze Bob's assets.

In May, 2013, Sir Rick sold Bob’s house for $325,000

The judge is chiding Sir Rick because he won't answer yes or no, but keeps elaborating.

Rick said Bob was concerned about the results of Gentz's competency hearing.

Rick said Bob told him he wanted to kill Gentz to avenge Jane's death. But Bob didn't tell him that early on; only later.

"I need to reach another. My thought is another profile on fet to see who is out there." You-know-who was Rachel, Rick said.

Bob letter: “I want to briefly address my personal life as with Jane’s loss. I’m most lonely. I cannot count on you know who to be there so.


Now, a handwritten letter Bob wrote to Sir Rick is shown...

Rick: "They’re recording every goddamn word we say.”


Bob: “Well, how’d it go?” Rick: “(They were) up my ass with a microphone. STFU..there’s too much conversation going on in these phone calls"

The same day, Rick talked to Bob after he'd spoken to prosecutors.

During April, 2013 investigative subpoena, Rick was asked if Bob wanted him to set up a fetlife profile; Rick said he didn't recall

Bob: “They’re gonna sling a lot of bullshit at you, I’m sure. Just so you know…they’ve communicated with that one person on fet."

Phone call: Bob: “They’re gonna want to know about Cat Purr.” Rick: “I can only tell them stuff I know about.”

Lindsey: A bench warrant was issued for Rick's arrest to compel him to talk to prosecutors.

Rick: "You should’ve been talking to me instead of that idiot from the furniture company.” Bob: “I know. He sucked me in.”

Rick: “You should’ve been talking to me a hell of a lot longer ago..you wouldn’t be where you’re at right now.

In another phone call that's played, Rick is complaining about being subpoenaed.

Steve Miller wrote a book about the Tara Grant murder, in which he seemed to take the side of the killer, her husband Stephen Grant.

Bob gave author Steve Miller David Cripps’ phone number. Rick said it’s not a good idea to talk to him.

Bob: “Cat Purr moved to Pennsylvania. She wants to write a book. It’s ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.”

Bob asks Rick about Cat Purr. “I was just wondering if you ever sent a message.” Rick doesn’t answer. Bob: “Anyways, no big deal.”

Bob sent a j-pay email to Rick on March 7, 2013: "Can you reach out to Kitty Purr? Give her my regards."

Sir Rick says he helped Bob clear out the dungeon

During that call, Sir Rick asked Bob if equipment had been removed from his basement sex dungeon on Mack.

Jailhouse call: Bob asks Sir Rick to set up a fetlife profile. Sir Rick: "I wouldn't do that in a million years. That was a stupid idea."

Book author Steven Miller talked to Bob in jail.

Bob also asked Sir Rick to contact someone named "Cat Purr" or "Kitty Purr" on fetlife. It was Rachel, under a new screen name.


Bob wanted Sir Rick to tell Rachel he still loved her. Rick says he knew there was a PPO. Rick told Bob it wasn't a good idea to contact her

Judge: "Is fetlife like yahoo?" Sir Rick said kind of...

After Rachel took out a PPO, Bob asked Sir Rick to contact her.


After Bob was in prison, he asked Sir Rick to set up a http://fetlife.com account for him.


Sir Rick told Rachel that Bob still loved her and to maintain the status quo. Later, she told Rick to tell Bob to stop bothering her.

This conversation was at Bob's home, with a house full of mourners.

Falcinelli said he felt "uncomfortable" for anything to do with the cellmate.

Falcinelli didn't like doing favors for the cellmate. "I'm Bob's friend; I don't want to do things for anybody else."

Bob asked Sir Rick to send a "secure pack" to his cellmate. Bob's call: "You can send it ...and not have your name on it. Somebody else."

Bob never told Sir Rick that he was talking to Obedient Slave about being the 3rd slave in his household.

Bob on Obedient Slave: “They took her computers…she was talking to…Rachel. She had stuff on there they wanted.”

Bob told Sir Rick he was worried about what was on the computer of Therese Giffin, aka Obedient Slave.

Cripps represented Bob for a short time.

Sir Rick: "I was repeatedly getting calls from him, which I didn't like." They also talked about DC - attorney David Cripps.

More jailhouse audio being played. Sir Rick says he's not happy about getting a call from Bob's cellmate.

Also, Bob wanted Lisa Lindsey killed.


Sir Rick put money in the prison account of Bob's cellmate. If you recall, Bob wanted his cellie to have people killed, including Gentz


Lindsey: “Knowing the defendant…if he wanted you to do something, he could keep asking until you did it.” Falcinelli: “Yes.”

Multiple witnesses testify about lies Bob Bashara told

By Elisha Anderson, Detroit Free Press 6:37 p.m. EST November 24, 2014

Witness after witness testified Monday that Bob Bashara told them lies — before his wife, Jane Bashara, was killed in January 2012 and afterward.

Bashara's former friend, former real estate agent and his wife's friends said he lied about key parts of his life: his relationship with his mistress, his marital status and his sex dungeon.

"I came to the conclusion if Bob's lips were moving, he was telling me a lie," Michael Carmody, his former friend from Rotary Club testified Monday.

He said his friendship with Bashara started to deteriorate after Bashara lied to him about his relationship with Rachel Gillett.

He said he's no longer friends with Bashara.
