As I have previously discussed, Joseph Caramadre, a Cranston, Rhode Island attorney, has chosen to withdraw his guilty plea in his multi-million-dollar investment scheme fraud case, claiming that the only reason that he pleaded guilty was because his wife was depressed and was under pressure from other attorneys. Caramadre further explained of his own despair in facing his multi-million-dollar investment fraud case. He explained that his attorneys failed to adequately cross-examine witnesses. He also accussed his attorneys of failing to show how the witnesses against Caramadre only changed their perception of him after the FBI approached them with information about his scheme. He claimed that the information that was provided to them was misleading.
