I refrained from publishing this statement before for several reasons, the first out of respect for my friend, and the second because I felt it was unnecessary, however, due to recent events, I have felt compelled to publish this, which is the statement that was filed with the court through my lawyer for my last appearance, which was one of the main factors which got the charges dropped down to an infraction. I do feel that I have been double victimized through the course of this harassment, first by the harassers, and second by the people who are supposed to stand for justice and reason who are not able to take a person at face value when they claim that they are getting obscene emails, snail mail, phone calls, etc. I’m not sure what’s so far fetched about an attractive woman who used to be in adult films getting harassed, but apparently, it seems far fetched to some people in the mental health community, especially if they are on the payroll of the Cornfelds.
Here is the first statement of one of the two eyewitnesses who were with me on different occasions of harassment.
(emails and identifying info has been removed, for the safety and privacy of my friend.)
Regarding [my daughter’s] teachers:
I haven’t been home to visit, so I don’t have any information about this school year. In May I had asked [my daughter] how school was and got quite a mouthful. In so many words she spoke of how she extremely detested going to school because of a lack of friends and dislike of the way her teacher conducted herself. I had the opportunity to be in the car to drive her to school when I visited the school, and it was tough to get her out of the car and she dragged her feet all the way to the building. It gives the outward appearance she despised having to see this teacher daily.
Every time I am in public with [Gia], with or without her children we deal with harassment. This has been the case since mid-May 2013 when I met her.
– At the Russian baths that May we had a couple that kept coming very close to us and hissing. When [Gia] walked away from me to get something the hissing stopped, but when she returned so did the hissing from the couple.
– On more than one occasion that we’ve gone out to eat, especially if we have the kids with us, we have had people come into nearly empty restaurants after us. These people find a way to sit right next to us in empty restaurants, hiss throughout their conversations, and leave magically right before we do.
– I’ve walked through Manhattan and Brooklyn by myself, and even if sidewalks are crowded I don’t get bumped up against. When I walk with [Gia] (even ahead or behind her) regardless of the crowd density on the sidewalk people bump up against us or try too.
– At a music festival in July of 2013 we were in Ithica, NY at a music festival. The number of times people hissed at us was uncountable.
– [Gia} lives in a pretty quiet suburb, on what is not a main street. I’ve heard purposely revved engines at odd hours of the night on her usually silent street, as well as loud conversations with people congregating near her residence. [Gia’s] home is not even remotely close to a bus stop.
There have been numerous other occasions of harassment, over the course of time that I’ve known [Gia].
If you need anything else feel free to contact me. I’ve had to deal with my fair share of the harassment when I see [Gia], and it really does seem targeted.
