“PERSECUTION OF A CERTAIN HUE“
Part Two of our ongoing series into the persecution of Dr. Terry Sasaki, MD. If you missed Part One, you could see it HERE.
This time we will discuss the primary “evidence,” if you can call it that, against Dr. Sasaki, which was his supposed “confession.” In fact, it was the sole source of “evidence” that Chief Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. used to deny Dr. Sasaki’s New Trial Motion for Insufficiency [US v Hazelwood, NODH #10-CR-150-SO, Ord, ECF:856 PG ID:13366-67].1
False confessions are present in more than a fourth of all wrongful convictions.2 For example, they were present in the cases of Central Park Five,3 Darrel Parker, Christopher Ochoa, Damon Thibodeaux, Adrian Thomas, Stefan Kiszko, Gary Gauger, etc.4 Many of these false confessions are obtained through the Reid technique from those who are young, mentally challenged, or after long interrogations of unwilling participants.5
LISTEN TO DR. TERENCE SASAKI, MD, THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2023, 11 AM TO 1 PM WAOK 1380 “ON POINT” WITH JUANDOLYN STOKES LIVE STREAMING
THE TARGETING PACKAGE
But Terence Sasaki, M.D., was a doctor, interrogated for two hours, and actually initiated contact with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Dr. Sasaki walked into the meeting and then walked right out of the meeting to go home. So why did he give a confession? Well, he didn’t.
In other cases of confessions, including the false confessions discussed above, there is an actual confession (albeit coerced, duped, or browbeaten). They admitted that they said they did it, they wrote or signed something, or it was recorded or videoed.6 Not in Dr. Terence Sasaki’s case.
We are not aware of any case where the confessor to multiple felonies which supposedly endanger lives is not taken away in handcuffs, arrested, or detained immediately. But Dr. Sasaki was indicted and arrested almost three years AFTER he supposedly “confessed.” Interesting?
Oh, we haven’t gotten to the interesting part yet. Let us look at the available evidence.
DEA obtains an interrogation of Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD, without an attorney under dubious circumstances [SoF R.2265-2:20688-91].
In the first half of 2007, Dr. Sasaki, on the advice of his brother, who worked at the time for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), repeatedly whistleblows to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) by phone and email trying to alert them about potentially illegal activities committed by others which may involve prescription narcotics [eg, Gov Ex.925].7
Although he learned later on that it was not true, it was explained to Dr. Sasaki at the time that just as a police officer can’t simply buy a new gun when they lose theirs, a doctor is obligated to tell law enforcement when they suspect issues with their licensing or DEA certificate.
Eventually, the DEA Diversion Program Manager Richard Springer of NYC ordered Dr. Terry Sasaki to report to their New York Headquarters for interrogation on June 27, 2007. It is disputed whether DEA Supervisor Richard Springer told Dr. Sasaki not to bring an attorney or told him it was up to him. However, it is not disputed that Dr. Sasaki brought a tape recorder that was confiscated by DEA’s building security [Tr 429:4612; 589:6889-90],8 and that the DEA refuses to allow those being interrogated to record them. [Id@4592]
Dr. Terence Sasaki stated that he did not want words to be put into his mouth, so they recorded the meeting to make him feel at ease. After the interrogation, DEA supervisor Springer told him they would review the recording. However, the DEA three years later denied having the recording [Tr 589:6888-9].

THE WAR ON US
Dr. Sasaki was interviewed in a windowless room at the New York DEA Headquarters by five white DEA employees, DEA Diversion Program Manager Richard Springer, DEA Diversion Investigators (DI) Tyler Parkison and Joseph Cox, as well as two more DEA Special Agents (S/A) Jason Fragiorgi & Jessie Prescott who had guns positioning themselves between Dr. Sasaki and the door [Tr 589:6887-8, 6895-6; 429:4614, 4595; Jt Ex.AB-1 pg9, 19].9
At the end of the interrogation, Terry Sasaki, MD, was given DEA Diversion Investigator (DI) Joseph Cox’s card and Parkison’s cell phone number (Tr 429:4682-3; 10/04/11 Suppress Hr Def Ex. C).. The card was later entrusted to Dr. Sasaki’s attorney Jay Milano, another white man, who later “lost” the irreplaceable evidence [Tr 1047].
Dr. Terence Sasaki has follow-up emails and phone calls with the DEA, such as DEA Diversion Investigator Parkison and Cox [Tr 589:6917-8]. Notably, despite all the other phone calls in this criminal case being recorded [Id@6792 “record all the phone calls”] with “approximately 3,000 calls” [Id@6800], these phone calls with Dr. Sasaki to and from the DEA were not. The DEA didn’t want you to know whatever was said between the DEA and Dr. Sasaki.
Dr. Sasaki states that both at the meeting as well as on these phone calls, the DEA repeatedly told him that he had done nothing wrong, that he should continue to participate with the questionable company so as not to arouse suspicion, and that he should wait for word from the DEA finalizing his informant status [Tr 1049].
The Department of Justice (DoJ) and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will later claim that Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD, actually confessed to numerous felonies at that interrogation and that it was not recorded. Apparently, they could pay for DEA Agent Tyler Parkison’s trip to NYC and hotel but not for a tape recorder [Tr 429:4638; 589:6807].
EXPOSING THE MEDICAL SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE
February 2008, despite his supposed “confession” (to selling narcotic scripts over the internet to whoever could afford it) at the interview almost 9 months earlier, the DEA renewed Terry Sasaki, MD’s DEA Registration Certificate, which allows him to prescribe narcotics [1165-3:20787 “08-19-2008” see the doc attached to this article]. If that wasn’t enough, the Drug “Enforcement” Administration (DEA) actually increased Dr. Sasaki’s ability to prescribe narcotics by removing the restriction that it was “only for use at Federal or State institutions” (compare Gov Ex 612 pg2 with the 2008 renewal).
DEA Diversion Program Manager Richard Springer10 admits under oath that there is “an agency prohibition” and “agency policy” to “not allow” “drugs going on the street” & so, at a minimum, would “tell him to stop,” “we’d have to tell him to cease and desist” [Tr 429:4605]. This is consistent with the DEA Agents Manual (pg6 of 10 in the excerpt, “The responsibility for keeping [controlled substances] out of the hands of the public applies to all law enforcement personnel”).
Despite DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison11 claiming Dr. Sasaki admitted to authorizing narcotic prescriptions & recruiting others to do so at the interrogation, Parkison confessed under oath that he never told Dr. Sasaki to stop [Tr 589:6919] and that the Department of Justice (DoJ) NEVER took any administrative action against Dr. Sasaki such as suspending or not renewing his DEA narcotics registration number, a complaint to the medical licensing board, etc. [Id@6920; 869:13655-6, 13672-3, 13708].
So if Dr. Terence Sasaki confessed, not only did the DEA allow Dr. Sasaki to leave, never told him to stop, and didn’t take any actions to prevent or even reduce his ability to prescribe or facilitate others to prescribe narcotics, but they actually facilitated and magnified his ability to prescribe narcotics. In other words, if Dr. Sasaki conspired to distribute narcotics, the DEA is his co-conspirator.
In April 2010, almost three years after Terry Sasaki, MD, volunteered information about potentially illegal activities committed by others, the Department of Justice (DoJ), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) indict and put out a warrant for Dr. Sasaki’s arrest [Indictment R.1]. But Dr. Sasaki self-surrendered because the DoJ/DEA could not find him.
From the time Dr. Terence Sasaki warned the DEA about possible illegal activities, over one million narcotic pills were issued by those Dr. Sasaki had warned the DEA about (who happened to be indicted as Dr. Sasaki’s co-conspirators).
Regardless of whether you think Dr. Terry Sasaki confessed or was whistleblowing, against their own claimed policy and the reason they get your tax dollars, the DEA deliberately allowed > 1 million narcotic pills to go on the streets, playgrounds, back alleys, classrooms, etc., which deliberately worsened the opioid crisis, resulting in desperate lawmakers that threw money at the problem, increasing Department of Justice (DoJ) & Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) budgets.
Apparently, the “enforcement” in DeA is optional. The “e” should be lowercase to convey its minimal importance.

Parkison’s notes were fabricated to manufacture a confession “by” Dr. Sasaki.
Despite admitting that a tape recorder “preserves the information a little bit better” [Tr 589:6868], Tyler Parkison claimed that the reason they did not record was that there was a “DEA policy in New York” where “their Assistant United States Attorney did not want them recording interviews” [Tr 589:6824; 429:4592, 4640-1]. Later, he changed his story to say that instead of the NY US attorney policy, the “DEA policy as a whole is that we don’t tape record interviews” [Tr 589:6889, 6927].
DEA Diversion Program Manager Richard Springer testified that “all interviews are conducted with two DIs [Diversion Investigators]. They split up the duties”, swearing under oath that “the notetaker was DI Cox” [Tr 429:4596].
And DEA Diversion Investigator Joseph Cox did take notes [Tr 589:6896; Jt Ex.AB-1 pp16-19 in reverse order]. But Cox never wrote any later reports on his notes so Springer did no reviews & did not know of any reviews [Tr 429:4615-7]. Dr. Sasaki also verified that the note taker was Diversion Investigator Joseph Cox & that Tyler Parkison never took any notes. Tellingly, the DoJ refused to put DEA DI Joseph Cox on the witness stand.
Nevertheless, DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison later claimed that he did make notes at the meeting [Tr 589:6891-2, 6894] which were even more extensive than DEA DI Joseph Cox’s [compare Parkison’s notes with Cox’s Ex.AB-1 pp2-8 vs 16-19] However, the Department of Justice (DoJ) could not & did not produce any witness, Springer, Cox, or the other agents in the room, who were willing to testify that Parkison actually took notes at the interrogation contemporaneously. Not only was Tyler Parkison the only person who would testify that he took notes, he would also be the only person out of the five DEA employees at the interrogation who said that Dr. Sasaki confessed.
Unfortunately for the DoJ and DEA, Agent Tyler Parkison’s first notes were not enough to “confess” on behalf of Dr. Sasaki. So DEA “Special” Agent Tyler Parkison needed to revise those notes twice more to make sure that Dr. Sasaki really totally “confessed” to exactly what the DEA and DoJ wanted him to confess to [Tr 589:6895-8; 429:4668; Jt Ex.AB-1 pp9-12; AB-2].
First, Tyler Parkison claimed he went to his hotel room, paid for by tax dollars, where he revised them [Tr 589:6895]. That 2nd version (1st revision) was also later altered by thrice crossing out “Delta Health” & replacing it with “MSNetwork” to ensure that Dr. Sasaki was tied to the conspiracy [Tr 589:6904-7; Jt Ex.AB1 pp9-12]. To explain this discrepancy, DEA Agent Parkison claimed that Dr. Terry Sasaki was confused even though Parkison was alone in his hotel room when he edited them [Id@6895].
COPS PRACTICING MEDICINE AND LAWYERS IN ON THE TAKE
The 3rd version (2nd revision) that the DEA called “Dr. Sasaki’s Statement” was a report typed by Parkison 2 weeks after the fact [Jt Ex.AB2] after DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison, a white man, had discussed it with numerous other white men, including those who were not even at the interrogation [Tr 589:6898-900; 429:4668].
After these numerous white men were satisfied and agreed upon what Dr. Sasaki, an Asian doctor, should confess to, they finalized their typed report of “Dr. Sasaki’s statement,” which became the Government’s (DoJ’s) “evidence” at trial [Tr 589:6900-2; Jt Ex.AB2].
The only way that Agent Parkison’s notes could come into evidence as if the defense attorney agreed to allow it. Fortunately for the prosecution, the white defense trial attorney that Dr. Sasaki paid for, Jay Milano, professor of ethics at Case Western University Law School, was on the DoJ’s side and agreed with prosecutors to allow all of Parkison’s notes into evidence as a joint exhibit after an off-the-record discussion, without Dr. Sasaki’s approval [Tr 589:6910-5]
Remember that it was important that Dr. Sasaki “confess” as that was the only “evidence” that black Chief Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. could use to deny Dr. Sasaki’s New Trial Motion [Ord 856:13366-67]. Fortunately, to keep the streets safe from this Asian doctor, this gang of non-Asian people cooperated to ensure that “Dr. Sasaki” totally confessed.
Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) Rebecca Lutzko claimed that Dr. Sasaki was “a target in an investigation” “before contacting the DEA” [Tr 429:4656, 4660; Suppress Hr Def Ex.A pg3], and that it was her policy NOT to engage “with unrepresented parties who face potential criminal charges” [Id], but no one advised Dr. Sasaki to have an attorney even though the “U.S. Attorney’s Office knew that [the DEA] was meeting with Dr. Sasaki” [Tr 429:4672].
Even though the DEA Agents Manual says that “It is a Federal offense to mislead anyone who provides information about a Federal crime” [excerpts pg8 of 10], they not only did not tell Dr. Sasaki he was a target [Tr 429:4660-1] but also pretended they were finalizing his informant status to string him along [eg, Id@4663-5]. And no, the DEA and US Attorneys did not arrest themselves.
Even assuming that DEA S/A Tyler Parkison actually did take notes & that he honestly believed that Dr. Sasaki had confessed to him, he can’t be relied on.
DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison made assumptions [Tr 589:6902-4 “I changed it to reflect what I thought it was”], filled the gaps [6812 “my belief is they wanted the signature to have his—to place as an electronic signature”]. Parkison never asked the “who, what, when, where, how” clarifying questions [Tr 589:6891, 6907, 6883 “I can’t specify a time frame”] so he guessed whether Dr. Sasaki was talking about the indicted conspiracy, another conspiracy, Dr. Sasaki’s behavior or someone else’s [Id](R.1165-3:20755; Jt Ex AB-2 pg2 #4).
As further evidence of the unreliability of unrecorded confessions, the DoJ/DEA’s witness claimed that their agent’s notes misrepresented what their witness said at a meeting [Tr 809:11991].
Without the recording, it is uncertain what Dr. Sasaki actually said.
But the non-Asian jury, prosecution team, & court staff had no reasonable doubt that Dr. Sasaki did it…because DEA Agent Parkison, a white man, verbally told them what Asian Dr. Sasaki had “confessed” to. That was good enough for them to convict Dr. Sasaki and make sure he never practiced medicine again.
Let’s now discuss the substance or corpus delecti of what DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison testified that Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD, supposedly told him.
Parkison lies about Dr. Sasaki authorizing prescriptions
DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison testified that Dr. Terry Sasaki said that he had “sent Marilyn Mendel his DEA registration” “somewhere around” “February 2005” when “he came into contact with [her]” [Tr 589:6811-2]. And the prosecutors relied on this “evidence” [eg, Tr 886:16828; 833:15924 “let this machine use his DEA registration”].
But not only was Dr. Sasaki still employed by NYU until May 2005 [see SDNY 05-CV-6163 US ex rel Sasaki v. NYU], Dr. Terence Sasaki’s DEA registration was issued on 9/20/05, seven months after Feb (Gov Ex 612 pg2). Furthermore, the exhibit clearly shows his DEA “registration is only for use at Federal or State institutions,” so could NOT have been used by Dr. Sasaki to authorize narcotics for the internet conspiracy, even if he wanted to.
While Dr. Sasaki’s license has fax transmittal notations on edge, the DEA registration does not (compare Gov Ex 612 pg1 w/2). This was because Dr. Sasaki never sent it, as at the time, anyone could print a doctor’s DEA certificate off the internet. He would not have sent it because he would know that his DEA registration was invalid for issuing narcotics outside a federal or state institution.
But DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison’s 3rd revision of his notes claims twice that “MSNETWORK was using his DEA registration to approve drug orders” [Jt Ex AB-2 pg3 #5; Tr 589:6813-4; 6932-3] contradicting his 1st version of his notes [Jt Ex AB-1 pg2 “has not used his DEA# for over a year”].
Despite this contradiction, Parkison testified, “They were approved under his registration” [Tr 589:6932-3], which Judge Oliver used to justify the denial of Dr. Sasaki’s Rule 33 motion [SoF ECF:1165-2:20711-13].
Remember that DEA Parkison’s 2nd version (1st revision) had been altered by thrice crossing out “Delta Health” & replacing it with “MSNetwork” to ensure that Dr. Sasaki was tied to the conspiracy [Tr 589:6904-7; Jt Ex.AB1 pp9-12]. So obviously, now Parkison could testify that Dr. Sasaki admitted that MS NETWORK was using his DEA registration because Delta Health would not have made sense given the dates on the prescriptions the DEA later found stamped with Dr. Sasaki’s name. DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison was very wise to have revised his notes of what he claims Dr. Sasaki said to ensure that it fell into the proper timetable of what they wanted Dr. Sasaki’s conviction to be.
But NONE of the USMeds’ scripts (ie, the conspiracy’s scripts) contained Terence Sasaki’s DEA Registration number [Tr 876:14850-1; See Dr. Sasaki’s DEA number on Gov Ex.612 pg2 (2 letters & 7 numbers) which is absent from prescriptions Gov Exhibit 435, 434, 434A; compare scripts with Dr. Sasaki’s stamped name versus Dr. Fernandez’s Gov Ex.435 pg13-15…instead of his DEA number, those scripts only contain Dr. Sasaki’s typed name instead].
Suppose a narcotics script doesn’t contain a DEA registration number. In that case, it should not have been issued except if the pharmacist knows the doctor did NOT actually authorize the script (i.e., forged scripts) but illegally issues it anyway. But the pharmacist Vinesh Darji had never met or communicated with Dr. Sasaki or called him about the suspicious scripts before issuing them [Tr 850:12878].
And only 17 scripts “belonging to the conspiracy” were stamped with Dr. Sasaki’s name. 17 compared to the >300,000 prescriptions issued by Dr. Ruan whose convictions were reversed [see Ruan v. U.S., 597 U.S.___, 142 S.Ct. 2370 (2022)].
Moreover, Dr. Terry Sasaki knew his DEA “registration is only for use at Federal or State institutions,” so would not have thought they would be able to produce narcotics for any online pharmacies (Gov Ex 612 pg2). In fact, the DEA never even bothered to check if the patients on those scripts even got the narcotics.
THE WAR ON DRUGS IS THE WAR ON US
MAKING A POLITICAL EVENT OUT OF PATIENT CARE
Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Tyler Parkison’s 3rd version of his notes or “report” of “Dr. Sasaki’s statement” uses language like “authorizing”, “approving,” and “allowing to be used” SIXTEEN times [Jt Ex.AB-2] but that’s not on the previous two versions, and Parkison’s own notes instead say Dr.S “don’t have to approve” [Jt Ex.AB-1 pp6].
The DEA never showed the scripts to Dr. Sasaki, let alone asked him to verify his handwriting. There were never any handwriting samples taken or analyses done on the scripts. There was testimony that it was not Dr. Sasaki’s handwriting [Tr R.1047:18303-04; 1049:18925].
Fact, Dr. Sasaki has NEVER signed any prescription without his full name or “MD” designation (see below)
But this did not stop Tyler Parkison from claiming that his investigation revealed their original signatures on those scripts [Tr 589:6828]. However, analysis of the 855 prescriptions shows that ALL of them contain the same pixelated, identical computer-generated “T Sasaki” signature [Gov Ex.434, 434A, 435].
But white DEA Parkison had to say that because the registrations weren’t on the scripts, he had to testify that the signatures were original to ensure that Asian Dr. Terry Sasaki would go to prison.
The evidence showed that Dr. Sasaki never sent conspiracy head James Hazelwood his documents, and instead, Hazelwood got them from Delta Health without Dr. Sasaki’s knowledge or approval [Tr 798:11291]. In fact, DEA “Special” Agent Tyler Parkison actually confessed on the witness stand that they instead lifted Dr. Sasaki’s “signature on a state license” “to place as an electronic signature on the prescriptions” [Tr 589:6812].
James Hazelwood practiced forging Dr. Sasaki’s scripts [Gov Ex.612 pg4], a person who Hazelwood had never seen [Tr 793:10663] or communicated with in any form or fashion [809:11967-68].
In fact, Dr. Sasaki has NEVER signed any prescription without his full name or “MD” designation. But Dr. Sasaki’s problem was that he “confessed” in DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison’s 3rd version of his notes…and he didn’t even know it…until the DEA told him three years later.
So “Even if everything that Parkison said was true, he did not tie Dr.S[asaki] to the [conspiracy’s] Scripts AT ALL as he never bothered to show him the scripts [at the interrogation], ask him which website [Dr. Sasaki supposedly] authorized for…, verify his signatures on scripts [such as through a handwriting expert], specify periods, etc. [Memo ECF:1165-4 PG ID:20839].
Despite this, Chief Judge Solomon Oliver Jr used DEA Agent Tyler Parkison’s testimony as the SOLE evidence to deny Dr. Terence Sasaki’s Motion for New Trial [Ord ECF:856 PG ID:13366-67 despite chart showing Parkison’s lies Ex.15 ECF:1165-3 PG ID:20779-81]. But in fact, EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE that Judge Oliver used to justify denial is refuted by the extrinsic evidence [Id, SoF 1165-2:20716-21].
On your tax dollar, the DEA handpicked a recruit from Walmart, Tyler Parkison, & gave him “twelve weeks at DEA’s training academy” “for the diversion investigator training” [Tr 429:4629-30]. After the interrogation for which DEA Diversion Investigator Tyler Parkison manufactures three versions of Dr. Terry Sasaki’s “confession” statement, the DEA used your tax dollars to promote & reward him with “special agent” training for “18 or 19 weeks” where now he gets to carry a gun [Id].
Since that time, DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison, a white man with no medical training has used his time well helping convict many medical professionals of color such as Dr. Syed Jawed Akhtar-Zaidi, M.D., Dr. Sanyani Edwards, Pharmacists Babubhai and Dinesh Patel, Ashwani Sharma, Dr. Iskander, Dr. Martinez, Dr. Dora Fernandez, pharmacist Vinesh Darji, etc. Your tax dollars were used very well to ensure that only white people got to wear doctors’ white coats.
Unfortunately, you will have to go to D.C. to hug this man to thank him because DEA Special Agent Tyler Parkison has continued to be promoted by the Department of so-called Justice (DoJ) for his amazing work sending medical professionals of color to prison.
No one rewards racism more than our U.S. federal government.
Richard Lillie, the attorney Chief Judge Solomon Oliver, Jr. assigns Dr. Terry Sasaki, ensures that Dr. Sasaki “confesses” in an internet article to protect the DoJ’s and DEA’s case.
In a Apr 25, 2014 Cleveland.com internet article by James F. McCarty, The Plain Dealer reporter, Dr. Sasaki is said to have “expressed regret and remorse for his crimes” by saying that “There were many victims of my foolishness, which I learned at trial included drug addicts who suffered the continuing torment of addiction”.
However, analysis of emails shows that this was a manufactured story concocted between James F. McCarty, a Cleveland reporter, and his friend Richard G. Lillie, the attorney that Chief Judge Solomon Oliver Jr appointed for Dr. Terry Sasaki. Dick Lillie had previously served in the Northern District of Ohio prosecutor’s office as an Assistant US Attorney at the same time as Judge Oliver (~1982). Do you think lawyer Mr. Richard Lillie of Lillie & Holderman was chosen in Dr. Sasaki’s best interest?
In the exhibit emails, Dr. Sasaki pleads with Mr. Lillie not to make him read the sentencing speech, which he felt made him sound guilty. Lawyer Richard Lillie not only dupes Dr. Terence Sasaki into thinking that he would be insane to profess innocence (see April 22, 2014, Dick Lillie email to Dr. Sasaki: “Are you intent on self-destruction?…These second two drafts will undoubtedly hurt you…It would be insane”), but falsely convinces Dr. Sasaki that the speech doesn’t say he was guilty (“you do not admit guilt in the first draft”)[Id].
Attorney Richard G. Lillie did this even while planning with reporter James McCarty to make Dr. Sasaki “express regret and remorse for his crimes” in a Cleveland.com article. They actually coerced Dr. Sasaki into saying the very sentence (see “Apr 21, 2014” Dick Lillie email to Dr. Terry Sasaki “I’ll have one small sentence to add”) that James F. McCarty quotes in his article, a sentence that Mr. McCarty himself composed “…I learned at trial included drug addicts who suffered the continuing torment of addiction”. Further evidence includes that James McCarty did not even show up to Dr. Sasaki’s sentencing but somehow knew exactly what Dr. Sasaki was saying to write his article that day.
These two white men, Richard G. Lillie and James F. McCarty, have collaborated on many articles, such as on 6/30/12, 2/26/12, and 11/17/14,12 Mr. McCarty has also given good press to Jerome Jay Milano, the white trial attorney that threw Dr. Sasaki under the bus, as well.13
As further evidence of Lillie and McCarty’s conspiracy, after Dr. Terence Sasaki was released from prison and called attorney Richard Lillie to say that he would file an ineffective assistance of counsel (IAC) claim against Mr. Lillie, James McCarty renewed and updated the article about Dr. Sasaki ensuring that it would be on the top of search engines when people googled Dr. Sasaki. The only update? Just a picture of drugs.
Despite supposedly being an environmental reporter, James F. McCarty, a white Clinton supporter working for Plain Dealer, has continued persuading his readers to blame doctors of color, such as Dr. Suresh Reddy, for the prescription drug epidemic.14
Notably, Richard Lillie defended his white client Jimmy Dimora, even representing him through an injury and not being paid.15 Asian Dr. Terry Sasaki apparently did not deserve such a defense. Many of the charges against Dimora were dropped, and his sentence was reduced, which shows the disparity of justice between white and non-white defendants, even among convicted felons.16 Yet another example of favoritism for whites, the Yale Appellate Clinic and a white glove law firm have taken Tony Viola’s case against the DoJ. Still, attorneys have not taken Dr. Terence Sasaki’s case which had the same lawyer with the same prosecutors.
Richard G. Lillie of Lillie & Holderman should be disbarred along with Jay Milano. But he won’t be, because racism is rewarded in the US federal courts and Cleveland, Ohio.
And for her racism, Assistant U.S. Attorney Rebecca Chattin Lutzko, Chief of the Appellate Division, will probably be appointed U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
This has been just part 2 of our articles about Dr. Terence Sasaki, MD’s case, which shows you just how far the United States, Department of Justice (DoJ), and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will go to not just convict innocent successful minorities but also make sure they stay convicted.

This is a classic examples of he said/he said circumstance. The DEA appears to have done nothing to substantiate their claim of a confession. Notes after the fact? Of course that may have not been known at the time. Those seem to have been created to support their claims at trial, but no witnesses backed it up on the stand. That should have told the the jury the confession was bogus.
But the DEA at that time was respected … not so much now..
Now it’s being proven to be an agency for fabricating evidence and framing doctors, lawyers, and other innocent people to further their agendas.
