Walsh claimed Crossen threatened his career unless he assisted them. Rush and Donahue informed Walsh that their investigation into the Demoulas litigation had already progressed enough that they already possessed evidence such as affidavits and tape recordings from witnesses.
He further claimed the hearing officer made an error by applying Fishman mechanically, thus disallowing an associate’s research. Yet Crossen was in control of preparing for the New York interview preparations, including instructing Rush to remove LaBonte as his repetitive questions may make Walsh suspicious.
On June 11, Crossen, Donahue and Arthur T. participated in an emergency meeting of defense counsel held at Barshak’s office; this meeting focused on whether to rely on affidavits for proof or conduct and tape record a ruse interview in New York.
He has completed, supervised, or reviewed valuations of thousands of real estate assets across the United States for clients ranging from individuals, public organizations and institutions. His experience includes appraising all types of properties such as land, buildings, governmental assets and partial interests.
Crosson has made remarkable achievements while in prison: earning a college degree, training as a chef and electrician, teaching yoga classes and mentoring other inmates with mental health or substance abuse issues. According to him, his only chance at freedom before parole date lies with getting governor clemency for himself.
