Serge Becker, James Gersten and Derek Sanders’ La Esquina business associate, the convicted international drug smuggler Cordell Lochin, is in a Brooklyn halfway house. Maybe he’s truly a changed man; anything’s possible. I know first-hand that sometimes prison miracles happen.
His friends and family have even started a Cordell fan page on Facebook in a show of support, so he clearly has every intention of remaining a highly visible public figure. You’re offering him his old job back as “social connector,” right Becker, because you’re such an upstanding, community-minded citizen who’s always there to support your rehabilitated employees? Oh right, you did a sloppy legal tapdance to try and publicly distance yourself from Lochin when he was sentenced. Now there’s a friend.
