Why am I not surprised? Doesn’t it figure that Scott’s federal indictment trial would be postponed? Just what he needs, more time to defraud the public. Patty Shields’ public defender has asked to postpone the trial, because she just took over the case from the previous attorney that left the public defenders office. She also notes in the letter that the trial will conflict with the National Orientation for new Public Defenders which she will attend. Now, the case is slated for some time in January.

For those folks lucky enough not to have been tricked out of their money or bamboozled by Scott Shields, you may need a little refresher about this 9/11 con artist.

A SENIOR WHO HAD NO TRAINING
I have a story to tell. A story I have not wanted to even whisper about. It has stayed with me for over four years. While Scott Shields—the central character in this sordid tale—has, and continues to, deceive many unsuspecting souls, it shames me to even have to acknowledge that I, too, fell victim. Yet, I am hopeful that its readers will come to see that bigger, far more important matters, are at issue here. Certainly, far bigger than my wounded pride. ~ Rochelle Lesser, September 26, 2006
