In 2007 attorney Borsari, along with forensic psychologist Dr. Patrick Callahan, founded the Clevenger Group. Named after the 19th century criminologist Joseph Clevenger, it's members meet in private rooms of restaurants each month over dinner and wine and discuss true crime cases both highly publicized and relatively unknown. The Group's mission is to explore and interpret with genuine objectivity, through the application of logic and candid dialogue, evidence of crime so as to endeavor that no innocent person be unjustly punished but in matters where the accused has died, that their memory is not tainted by the poison of false accusation. During a recent meeting the group received a presentation on the Lindberg Kidnapping case with a focus on the perpetrator's thirteen ransom notes. These notes were essential pieces of evidence in the 1935 trial of Bruno Richard Hauptman which ultimately led to his conviction and execution. Future topics will include the deaths of Jon Benet Ramsey, Natalie Wood, Catherine Eddowes (allegedly by Jack the Ripper), and Andrew Irving (Orange County's most infamous unsolved death). If you are interested in joining the Group for a meeting or presenting a case that interests you please contact attorney Borsari. Your thoughts and analysis are always welcome regardless of your professional background.
