Indira Noel Pleads Guilty, Fined $250

The oft-Googled (at least on THIS blog) Indira Noel was accused of forging a signature, then hit with misdemeanor forgery charges and now has pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct violation.
“Indira said, ‘I’m David’s girlfriend,’ ” - New York Times
She'll pay a $250 fine! Let's see, makes over $100K a year, $250 fine... so the average Joe or Jane making about $30K would pay $80 for the same offense? Just asking! Maybe it was a "birthday gift" --- wink wink! Ms. Noel also had been accused of some hanky-panky involving a Social Security number.

Albany County District Attorney David Soares' office says the plea was accepted this morning after the charges were levied. The 44-year old Noel (pictured) is said to have accepted responsibility for her actions. Heather Orth from the DA's office told the Albany Times Union that people charged with a couple of misdemeanors are commonly allowed to plead down to things such as disorderly conduct, particularly if they have no prior criminal histories such as Noel.

Who among us has not made a mistake or did something we truly regretted? Whether it was discovered or not? We all keep secrets. Sometimes we do things on the spur of the moment that cross the line of our own character. Judge not lest ye be judged! When a break comes along, take it... do not judge (as I just said) and do not begrudge! I wish more people would step up to the plate and take a little responsibility for their actions!

Time now for you to move along and Google someone else!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
