John Kinnucan Plea July 2012  by Elizabeth Williams
John Kinnucan pleaded guilty yesterday in Manhattan Federal Court in front of Judge Deborah Batts.  His appearance was quite different than when I drew him in March. He had lost a lot of weight; his prison uniform hung off his shoulders and had grown a significant beard. His responses to the judge were very clear, he stared straight ahead when reading his statement, which was rather brief.
During the March appearance he was looking around, was much more robust, with a closely cropped beard. Both appearances were rather short, and Judge Batts was awaiting the verdict in the Larry Seabrook trial yesterday. The jury on that case has been deliberating for about a day, so this plea was taken during the lunch hour.
