In 1995 Chris Albert was convicted of killing a Hungarian graduate student named Peter Maszaros-Berger after rear ending him on I-95 and fleeing the scene of the crime. He was sentenced to two years in jail, but only had to serve 6 months. The mother of Peter Maszaros-Berger said in her victim impact statement that the victim’s father had “lost his will to live.” According to Albert’s public defender John Prescott, Albert was remorseful and apologized to the victim’s family.

John Prescott Sr. died in 2001, and was widely praised for his work representing indigent criminals as a public defender. His son John was Chris Albert’s attorney. But one fact that is being overlooked is that his Albert’s attorney was the brother of former public defender, and current Norfolk Superior Court Justice Beverly Cannone.

She talked about her father during her 2009 hearing before the Governor’s Council after being nominated to be a judge by Governor Deval Patrick.

State Rep. Stephen Tobin, D-Quincy, who said he has known Cannone for most his life, said she “took after her father and absorbed his love and defense of law.” Cannone’s father, John Prescott, was a Norfolk County prosecutor and later, a public defender. His six children were raised in Quincy and attended Quincy schools, Cannone told the council.

Chris Albert’s father in law Jack Daniels (the appropriately named father of Jill Daniels and Julie Daniels Albert) also worked at Quincy District Courthouse, where John Prescott practiced law out of many times.

Lawyers, judges, police officers and visitors to Quincy District Court have gotten to know John “Jack” Daniels over the years.

“He’s always trying to help someone, whether they’re looking for a particular department, a courtroom, or have a question about court procedures,” said Arthur Tobin, the court’s clerk magistrate.

Daniels, who has worked at Quincy court for 35 years, handles mostly bails and money transactions.

Just to review:

  • Beverly Cannone is the judge in a murder trial in which Chris Albert’s son and brother have been accused by the defense of murdering John O’Keefe
  • Beverly Cannone’s brother, whose footsteps she followed in, was the attorney for Chris Albert when he killed a 24 year old man, fled the scene of the crime, and avoided a DUI charge by sobering up
  • Colin Albert’s grandfather worked in Quincy District Courthouse for more than 35 years, where Beverly Cannone’s father also practiced law out of
  • Beverly Cannone “took after her father,” so she likely followed his work as a public defender
  • Beverly Cannone’s brother represented Chris Albert, which she likely knew about
  • In the Karen Read case Beverly Cannone has issued several rulings favorable to the Albert family (denying the defense access to Brian Albert’s phone which may contain information implicating Chris, Brian, or Colin Albert, not forcing the Commonwealth to hand over GeoFence data that could confirm if Chris or Colin was inside 34 Fairview Road, ignoring the fact that Julie Albert told police that she knew John was dead an hour before Karen Read discovered his body), and that her family has ties to the Albert family

Like Beverly Cannone did with John Prescott, Colin Albert has followed in his father’s footsteps. Chris Albert took a man’s life when he was slightly older than Colin was when John O’Keefe was killed. Like Colin, Chris attempted to avoid responsibility by fleeing the scene when he could have attempted to save the man’s life. Both Colin and Chris Albert immediately thought about how they could save themselves, instead of saving the life of a person who was seriously injured as a result of their actions. Chris served only 6 months in jail because Beverly Cannone’s father was an effective attorney for him. Consequently Chris learned almost nothing from this life-altering crime, as he continued to drink too much, have violent run-ins with people (like the Lopilato brothers), and used his connections to police (Canton Police Lt. Michael Lank) to protect himself at the expense of others.

The difference between Chris and Colin’s situation is that Chris couldn’t pin his crime on an innocent woman. But John Prescott helped protect Chris in 1995, and now Prescott’s daughter is protecting Chris’ son. How many people will lose their lives to members of the Albert family while the powers that be protect them?

  1. No one will believe this movie is based on real life characters and real life events.

  2. Are you kidding me?? And she still will not recuse herself?? They are all shameless liars and should be treated as such. How can you remain impartial when you have previous ties to the people whose rulings you are affecting??When will someone step in and end this farce as it is beyond the pale at this point??

    1. They are all in too deep….. no turning back now….. no shame, white trash protected by deep politics. As long as they can continue to attend their after parties, flash some man boob in Ogunquit, and attend kids sporting events… its all good.

  3. That picture of Auntie Bev, is she sleeping or is she stoned or is she falling asleep because she is stoned? No matter, she follows the old adage, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

    1. It is funny to think people disregard his abilities and tenacity. Most of them are in the graveyard, others, it’s just a matter of time, like Jen. Jen, tick tock, you’re going down.

  4. SHUT. UP. This must have been what she was thinking about in chambers after the recusal request. Wonder who she consulted with.

  5. how come everyone on Team Albert looks like they have been doing coke everyday for the last 30 years?

  6. Why not see if you can get the snow plow driver’s cell phone to track it on the night in question. May be too late.

  7. Judge would be smart to recuse herself now to avoid a complete and absolute slam dunk of an appeal. Mind boggling!

  8. I still can’t believe it. She knows she has the appearance of a major conflict of interest and yet she maneuvered things to keep control of this case. She assumed the lazy, corrupt media wouldn’t uncover it and certainly wouldn’t report it even if they did. She didn’t count on the Turtle and riders who are sick and tired of our corrupt government and judicial system with one set of rules for the connected and another for the rest of us. If this isn’t judicial misconduct, it should be.

    1. Did you read the full post and look at the receipts??
