Now for our announcements: First of all, Radio Talk Show Host Mark Scott is virtually the ONLY media person to have supported Larry Nevers and Walter Budzyn from the very beginning back in 1992.
...
Cohn gave the prosecutor 1 week to write out an answer to the question of why they were fighting Larry's bond when they didn't fight Walter Budzyn's (beyond the Appeal's court level, that is).
...
Although there was no opportunity to argue this in front of Cohn, the truth is that the prosecutor's position, at the first trial and also at Walter Budzyn's retrial, was that Walter Budzyn started the altercation and did the majority of the "beating".
...
Neither has there been any reasonable explanation for why Larry Nevers has continued to be treated more harshly than Walter Budzyn (who was given a sentence amounting to time served for the same conviction AND was granted bond pending appeal).
...
Not even the same sentence as his partner Walter Budzyn? Budzyn, whose 4 year sentence has virtually been fulfilled, is home on bond pending appeal.
...
Judge George Crockett III, who presided over the first Nevers and Budzyn trial, and acquiesced to the NAACP by sentencing Larry Nevers to 4 more years in prison than Walter Budzyn, has been accused of beating and sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend and holding her against her wishes.
...
This is only one year less than Walter Budzyn received for Second Degree Murder at the first trial !!! What is wrong with this picture?
Prior to sentencing, defense attorney Neil Fink figured out sentencing guidelines according to the same standards used at Walter Budzyn's retrial.
...
In asking for a stiffer sentence than Budzyn's, Prosecutor Baker told Judge Boykin that Larry Nevers was more culpable than Walter Budzyn in his actions the night Malice Green died.
...
In asking for a stiffer sentence than Budzyn's, Prosecutor Baker told Judge Boykin that Larry Nevers was more culpable than Walter Budzyn in his actions the night Malice Green died.
...
At Walter's sentencing, Baker had described Walter as the one who began the assault on Green.
...
Walter Budzyn was not assessed these points. The loss of a son would certainly be difficult for any family. Was it greater in this case than in any other Involuntary Manslaughter case? If it was, I'd suggest that the media is to blame and perhaps THEY should be assessed the extra points. Why was this grief and suffering more acute in the case of Larry Nevers than it was in the case of Walter Budzyn when both officers, at this point, have been found guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter in the same death?
...
As if a murder sentence of manslaughter was not vindictive enough, Judge Boykin refused to grant bond pending appeal as Judge Thomas Jackson had done for Walter Budzyn.
...
Walter Budzyn testified that a rock of cocaine fell from Green's clenched fist as he reached toward the glove box.
...
Budzyn found 4 rocks of cocaine in the car after the scuffle and later an evidence technician found another rock on the dashboard of Green's car.
...
Neither Nevers nor Budzyn touched Green after he was removed from the car.
...
In Actuality, Larry was released some 6 months after Walter Budzyn by FEDERAL Judge Lawrence Zatkoff.
...
Please check out the following website: The National Police Defense Foundation . The foundation's Executive Director Joe Occhipinti has been one of America's most vocal supporters Larry Nevers and Walter Budzyn.
...
Nevers and partner Walter Budzyn were convicted in 1993 of second-degree murder and served four years in prison before their convictions were overturned by two courts.
...
Budzyn was retried in 1998, convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to time served.
The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office is appealing the sentence. Budzyn remains free on bond.
...
While Walter Budzyn won the vote, I still view it as a defeat.
...
Eventually Walter Budzyn was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. The following day, a juror gave the news media an interview in which he stated, "We just felt that there was a time that he could have done something to stop his partner and didn't".
...
The Michigan Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling which reinstated Judge Thomas Jackson's original 4 year sentence for Walter Budzyn.
...
Jackson gave Budzyn this sentence knowing that Walter had fulfilled enough of this sentence already to qualify him for parole.
...
Jackson did not intend Walter Budzyn to be returned to prison for any length of time.
...
Immediately after Jackson pronounced the 4 year sentence, Baker demanded that Walter be returned to prison.
...
Walter Budzyn was ordered returned to prison to await an official parole board hearing.
At the moment, Walter is free, pending appeal of his involuntary manslaughter conviction itself. If he loses the appeal he will have to go back to prison.
One small note about the following Detroit Free Press article: The caption of the article claims that Walter Budzyn was convicted of "fatally beating Green". After Walter's conviction, jurors clearly told the press that they did NOT believe testimony that Walter had beaten Green. Rather they stated that they convicted Walter Budzyn for "failure to act".
...
They were, however, clearly told that they could NOT convict Walter Budzyn for FAILURE TO ACT.

Former Detroit police officer Walter Budzyn will have to be resentenced for the 1992 beating death of Malice Green, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled by rejecting an appeal............The sentencing furor arose when Wayne County Circuit Judge Thomas Jackson tried to craft a sentence that would, in essence, require Budzyn to serve no more time behind bars.

Costs of Walter Budzyn's retrial were not included.)

It appears that Judge Thomas Jackson, who presided over Walter Budzyn's retrial, will preside over Larry's retrial as well.

A few of the other unscrupulous actions committed by the Wayne County Prosecutor's office in an effort to railroad Larry Nevers and Walter Budzyn:
...
Court testimony revealed that, prior to trial, the Wayne County Prosecutor's office removed from the police computer LEIN file, all outstanding arrest warrants against the five main eye witnesses who were to testify against Larry Nevers and Walter Budzyn.
...
While that question properly takes hours to answer, Mr. Fink briefly referred to a few central issues such as the numerous conflicts between the testimonies of the EMS technicians, Larry's claim of self defense, the Michigan Supreme Court's own admission that the case was a credibility contest, and the fact that Larry's jury took even longer to reach their verdict than Walter's, indicating a lack of overwhelming evidence.
...
Walter Budzyn was improperly charged and convicted by a confused jury who listened to the rhetoric of the prosecutor rather than following the instructions of the judge. Nevertheless, had Walter been an average citizen, with the same background, charged with the same crime, he would most likely have been given a far lesser sentence. Walter could have been sentenced to 1 year in the county jail or even to probation.
...
A three judge panel lead by Judge Hilda Gage ruled yesterday that Walter Budzyn's "time served" sentence was illegal.
...
The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, however, demanded that Walter be returned to prison for several weeks until an official parole board could formally release him.
Upon hearing this unreasonable demand, Jackson accused the Wayne County Prosecutor's office of overkill and then resentenced Walter to the exact number of days he had already served. It was this resentencing that was vacated yesterday. Judge Jackson's original 4-15 year sentence has now be reinstated and Walter will have to be returned to prison unless Jackson grant's Walter bond pending an appeal to the
