New York - (Sordid Ass Mess): He'll be 90 at the end of next month but he's still The Big Apple's top dog when it comes to screwing over the felons, deviants, nutters and perverts that sully the benches of the Manhattan State Supreme Court.
And this week Bob Morgenthau is prosecuting Craigslist Rapist Joseph Brooks, 71, Oscar-winning composer of You Light Up My Life, who advertised to lure eleven women into his perveted clutches.
Also in the dock is Brook's personal assistant Shawni Lucifer (sic) who conspired in the recruitment and grooming of potential rape victims.
Morganthau, 89, says Brooks proceeded to pump his assault targets with strong liquor before committing multiple counts of rape, criminal sexual act, sexual abuse, assault and other sordid acts.
"He'll get 25 years allright," Morganthau told reporters today, sprightly and self-assured as ever.
