There’s benefits to exonerating the number one quarterback in America, and in this case, it’s free coffee for life.
The owner of a New England Dunkin’ Donuts must be a huge Tom Brady fan, because he’s offering Judge Richard Berman, the man who vindicated the Patriots’ QB, free coffee for life.
Berman, of course, is the judge who ruled Wednesday morning in a scalding opinion that the NFL was wrong to suspend Tom Brady for four games. So yeah, he’s a popular guy in the Greater Boston area. After a little investigative reporting, we’ve concluded that the donut shop in question is located at 1124 Lisbon Street in Lewiston, Maine. That’s less than an hour away from Roger Goodell’s summer home on the coast. His coffee undoubtedly costs extra. h/t si
A judge saves the entire season for the New England Patriots and all he gets is a lousy cup of coffee? Where’s the free donuts?

Indiana resident, Leo Sharp, 90, was sentenced — on his 90th birthday — to three years in federal prison for transporting over a ton of cocaine to Michigan.
Sharp fought Nazis in Italy during World War II and was awarded a Bronze Star for it.
The senior is also known for growing prize-winning daylilies and even contributed 5,000 plant bulbs to his community.. Oh and did we mention he’s a 90-years-old drug mule?
Wearing a dark suit and tie, the frail man stuffed his hands in his pockets as he stood in front of U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds.
Kevin Trudeau, the TV pitchman known for authoring books on natural cures and weight-loss remedies – “they don’t want you to know about,” has been sentenced to a staggering ten years in prison after a judge found him in contempt of court over his refusal to comply with previous orders to pay a $37.6 million fine.
Clearly frustrated U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman cited Trudeau’s history of fraud, saying in his ruling,
“He has treated federal court orders as if they were mere suggestions… or at most impediments to be sidestepped, outmaneuvered or just ignored… That type of conduct simply cannot stand.” Continue reading
A federal judge sentenced gospel music producer, Michael Winans Jr., after they say he defrauded his practitioners out of millions of dollars. The law waived a heavy hand giving this poor sap nearly 14 years behind bars.
Winans Jr. is said to have bilked folks out of over $8 million in a elaborate investment scheme.
Winans, 30, a member of the famous Winans family of gospel music performers, was convicted on wire fraud charges and sentenced Wednesday to 13 years, nine months in prison and ordered to pay $4.8 million in restitution to his victims. Ouch.
Prosecutors charged his scam targeted 1,200 investors and the resulting finantal strain it caused on families tore apart marriages, homes, college plans and basically wiped out their life savings.
U.S. District Judge Sean Cox admonished the music man for taking advantage of “good, decent, churchgoing people,” and then announced the staggeringly long sentence.
He will get released on or before 2027.
Former NFL star Junior Seau, 43, died at his Oceanside, Calif., home Wednesday.
