Baltimore attorney arrested for allegedly offering rape victim $3K to not testify, saying Trump will deport her

A Baltimore defense attorney was arrested in the downtown courthouse Tuesday and charged with obstruction of justice and witness intimidation for allegedly telling a rape victim she risked deportation by the Trump administration in an effort to dissuade her from testifying against his client.

In a recorded conversation, Christos Vasiliades, 38, and another man charged in the case, Edgar Ivan Rodriguez, told the victim's husband about the "current environment for immigrants in this country" and offered $3,000 cash if the victim did not show up to court, which would force prosecutors to drop the case, the indictment alleges.

"You know how things are with Trump's laws now; someone goes to court, and boom, they get taken away," Rodriguez told the victim's husband in the recorded conversation, according to an indictment by the Attorney General's Office. Vasiliades also offered an alternative solution: Just beat up his client.

"If we were back home where I'm from, from Greece... we would go (expletive) him up, that's it, if you want to do that, that's fine," Vasiliades was recorded saying, according to court documents. "He's an (expletive), I think you should find him and kick his (expletive), personally."

5. Yep. But we know what happened to John Wayne Bobbit when he made that threat...

 

I hope someone reminded the attorney prior to his arrest.
