Gregory E. Tomczak, Esq., a partner of Ambrosio & Tomczak, was quoted on the front page of the Boston Globe on June 18, 2011 in the article entitled, "In appeal, DiMasi case to test high court ruling." The arcticle discusses the recent verdict of a federal court jury which convicted former House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi of public corruption and the appeal which is scheduled to be filed by Mr. DiMasi's counsel. Counsel for DiMasi believes that an appeal is proper insofar as the prosecution failed to prove that DiMasi overtly promised support for a software company in exchange for secret payments.
Mr. Tomczak does not agree that an overt promise must be proven by direct evidence in order to violate the law; circumstantial evidence is sufficient to prove DiMasi's guilt. In particular, Mr. Tomczak was quoted as saying, "I think it's pretty clear as long as there is some type of payment that benefits the person accused, that's enough."
