Judge Rodney White: I have reviewed the contract entered into by Ms. Gamble and Mr. Cahill. I think Ms. Gamble's promises were against public policy, lived up to or not. I also believe technically unenforceable under Massachusetts' General Law, Chapter 265 Section 1 which states that only the jury shall determine the degree of murder. However, the fact of the matter is, we enforce plea agreements like this everyday, and Ms. Gamble's deceit, trickery and bad faith, it's also against public policy. Lawyer's who appear in my court do not get to take advantage of technicalities and bad faith to get out of deal they regret. I'm therefore honoring the plea agreement. Mr. Cahill's first degree convictions are set aside, we entered second degree counts, and pursuing to the agreement, Mr. Cahill shall be eligible for parole in 20 years.
Atty. Powell: Thank you, Your Honor.
Judge Rodney White: However, this plea agreement is silent on sentencing when it comes to other crimes such as Mr. Cahill's threat to hit Ms. Gamble.
Atty. Powell: We deny that ever happened.
Judge Rodney White: Yes, it would be nice for you if you got a trial on that, but you don't. For sentencing purposes, I need only find, by preponderance of the evidence that it happened. I make that finding now.
[Judge White addressing to Mr. Cahill]
Judge Rodney White: To threaten a D.A., Mr. Cahill, I'm adding 75 years to each of your two counts, sentencing to run consecutively. So you will now be eligible for parole in 150 years. Adjourned.
[Bangs the gavel. Jackie Cahill is finished. He is handcuffed and taken away by the bailiff and Attorney Powell walks over to Helen and explain about Richard Bay]
Atty. Powell: You think you honored Richard Bay in all this? You think that cowboy up there just ratified you?
Helen Gamble: Go away.
