Rolando Goris' Serious Assertions Appear Validated By Various Factors
Caught.net publishes complaints from Citizens asserting they experienced injustice. We are not an investigative agency.
8-3-99. Case P2/95-I8I4AG State v. Rolando
Goris. Mr. Goris was originally charged with:
- Possession of a firearm while in
possession of a controlled substance
- Delivery of a controlled substance
- Conspiracy to violate the Controlled
- Carrying a firearm during the commission
of a crime of violence and
- Carrying a pistol without a license
Mr. Goris asserts he was set up by crooked cops
who had a vendetta against him. What happened the first day of trial gives
credence to Mr. Goris' assertion. On the first day of trial, the state filed a dismissal
of all counts but the last pursuant to RI Rule Crim.Pro. 48(a). A jury
trial proceeded on a single count of carrying a pistol without a license. Judge
Krause presided. Mr. Goris was convicted in 1995 and a motion for a new trial was
denied on 11-1-95. On 1-10-96, Judge Krause sentenced Mr. Goris to ten years with 14
months to serve and with eight years and ten months suspended and probation. Mr.
Goris asserts the following wrongdoing occurred in his case:
- Irrelevant evidence trying to prove Mr. Goris' bad character
should not have been received into evidence. Judge Krause abused his discretion by
allowing the prosecution to ask Mr. Goris' ex-girlfriend whether Mr. Goris contributes to
the support of their young child.
- A police officer without expert qualifications should not
have been allowed to testify as an expert witness. Judge Krause allowed a Sgt.
Kennedy to testify as a fingerprint expert without Sgt. Kennedy ever being qualified as an
expert in fingerprint examination.
- Mr. Goris' motion for a new trial should have been
granted. Judge Krause lacked objectivity and
misconceived and overlooked material evidence during the trial such as the "scripted
flavor" of the police testimony.
Mr. Goris also asserts his attorney Robert DiPippo
was guilty of attorney misconduct and legal malpractice, was working with the police and was
involved with drug traffic. Caught received a supporting sworn affidavit from Citizen Donald Keets in support of Mr. Goris' assertions.
Atty. DiPippo has been disciplined by the RI Supreme Court Disciplinary Council regarding matters apparently unrelated to this complaint.
