Glock Ex-General Counsel Under the Gun in Racketeering Trial
law,.com ^ | 10/3/11 | McDonald

Posted on 10/10/2011 10:01:49 AM PDT by pabianice

Glock Inc.'s former general counsel goes to trial Oct. 24 in Cobb County Superior Court on theft and racketeering charges related to allegations that he misappropriated millions of dollars from the international firearms maker.

Paul F. Jannuzzo, a former New Jersey prosecutor who served as Austria-based Glock's general counsel and top executive in the U.S. from 1991 to 2003, was extradited earlier this year from Amsterdam, where he fled in 2009 shortly before he was scheduled to go to trial on the charges.

The indictment accuses Jannuzzo of engaging in a racketeering scheme to siphon corporate funds with the help of Dunwoody lawyer Peter S. Manown, a former senior vice president of the company. Manown, at one time an attorney with the defunct Atlanta law firm Cofer Beauchamp Stradley & Hicks, earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of felony theft and was sentenced on Jan. 7, 2008 to 10 years of probation. He is expected to be the state's primary witness against Jannuzzo.

Glock, which manufactures semi-automatic, polymer handguns, supplies firearms to the majority of law enforcement agencies in the U.S. The closely held company is controlled by 82-year-old Austrian founder Gaston Glock. Its U.S. headquarters is in Smyrna, where the firearms are assembled.

Fool of a man...

First off, it’s probably a bad idea to cheat the people who make the guns. They tend to also be the people who HAVE the guns - at least as many are needed if the “resolution” escalates that way.

Second, never - EVER - flee to an EU country for safety. They WILL extradite you. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Likewise Canada and all of South America. You’ll get a few years on the run and that’s it.

If you have a few million, and want to disappear, head to Southeast Asia. A few million is like hundreds of millions in the US, and you can very easily disappear in the area. Set yourself up a 20 acre resort compound on a beach, and just disappear. No one will question you... Spend your life with beautiful scenery, swimming, and lounging on a beach.

You probably didn’t mean it this way, but I must point out that there are a lot of people in the gun industry I respect and admire, and NONE of them would resort to illegal violence as retribution for theft or legal disputes.

Your apparent suggestion that they would is offensive, and deserves a retraction.

“Glock, which manufactures semi-automatic, polymer handguns...”

Zing! :) “Not that there’s anything wrong with that”, etc. :)

I picked up a glock a few years back, stripped it, looked inside and gave it back to it’s owner, what a piece of junk.

Apparently they’re “ok”. But I’ll take a nice, slim, heavy 1911 any day of the week.

If 8 rounds of .45 ACP don’t get the job done, I was in over my head anyway. :)

Nonsense. Say what you will about a Glock, but junk they are not.

Nope. You’re simply wrong. Very reliable, extremely durable, and with good out of box accuracy, the Glock is a fine platform.

Love the graphic!

I’m lighter now, and I did wrote “You probably didn’t mean this...” but I couldn’t let the implication stand to impugn our nation’s finest industry.

Thanks for the cheerful response!

True. They are all their fans say they are.

And UGLY. Which is OK.

There is the issue of frame-torque discharge, but I don’t have verifiable evidence. That’s just the word from critics inside the industry. I’d never suggest a Glock to a loved one, and Before I carried one, I’d frame-torque the hell out of it before I trusted it.

At least when the taxpayer is paying the bill, and someone else is specifying the manufacturer.

Bill Murray was always greatly watchable. My other faves are G Day and Tootsie.
