Bashara faces sentencing Thursday for conviction in plot to kill wife
Author: Local 4 - ClickOnDetroit news staff
Published On: Jan 14 2015 04:22:57 PM EST

DETROIT - A Detroit-area man convicted of murder in a plot to kill his wife will be sentenced on Thursday.

The salacious trial of Bob Bashara revealed his secret life in Grosse Pointe Park: a former Rotary Club president who used cocaine and hosted men and women at a sex dungeon under a bar called the Hard Luck Lounge.

Jane Bashara was strangled by a handyman in the couple's garage in 2012 before her body was discovered in her Mercedes-Benz in a Detroit alley.

Jurors convicted the 57-year-old Bob Bashara of first-degree murder and four other charges.

First-degree murder carries a mandatory penalty of life in prison without possibility of parole.

Judge hears testimony in Bob Bashara's bid for new trial
Bashara fights for appeal, says attorneys are to blame

DETROIT - A judge has agreed to hear testimony during an evidentiary hearing for Bob Bashara, who is seeking a new trial after being convicted of arranging his wife's death.

Bashara's appellate lawyer, Ronald Ambrose, argued Tuesday in before Judge Vonda Evans that Bashara's trial attorneys didn't do enough to prevent him from a first-degree murder conviction and a life sentence.

The 57-year-old, known as "Master Bob," was also in court.

Testimony began with defense attorneys Michael McCarthy and Lillian Diallo. Court is in recess until Wednesday morning.

Author: Local 4 - ClickOnDetroit news staff,
Published On: Oct 13 2015 02:43:55 PM EDT

DETROIT - Bob Bashara's bid for a new trial continued Wednesday, but the court will wait another day to hear from him.

Bashara was about to take the stand himself, but Judge Vonda Evans decided to end court for the day before that could happen. It will resume Thursday morning, and Bashara is expected to give his testimony.

Judge Evans did hear more testimony from other witnesses, including statements about the police investigating from Grosse Pointe Park Police Chief David Hiller.

THX Listening....

I never followed all this stuff very closely.. and have forgotten anyway :)

Listening....I am APPALLED by the prosecutor ( and Judge).... nasty and badgering the witness.. putting words in his mouth, leading questions etc etc. Summarizing "what he just said" at times NOT what he said at all.... just repeating her own view and the answer she tried ( and failed) to put elicit by putting "words into his mouth". Not allowing him to clarify answers.. insisting on yes/no answer where clearly there is a NEED to expand and clarify... the answer being "No" to the way the prosecutor phrased and "begged the question", but "Yes" on some more general point.

It is a if some THICK and illogical, gossiping hag from a True gossip Forum is pretending to be a prosecutor ( and similarly the Judge from the little I have heard)

Bob Bashara: 'Lies were put in place to protect my family'
By Elisha Anderson, Detroit Free Press 3:55 p.m. EDT October 15, 2015

Bob Bashara admitted he was a liar when he took the stand today in his attempt to get a new trial, but said he has good reason for not telling his mistress the truth about being married.

“Those lies were put in place to protect my family,” he said.

Bashara, a former Grosse Pointe Park businessman, also admitted that after his longtime mistress discovered he was married, he told her he was leaving his wife once the younger of his two children graduated but that never happened.

“I led her on, absolutely,” he testified today during a hearing before Wayne County Circuit Judge Vonda Evans in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice in Detroit.

It was the first time he’s testified in his case

Bashara, who was convicted last year of the 2012 murder of his wife, Jane Bashara, is seeking a new trial, claiming in a court document he was "denied a fair trial in a number of respects."

I'm glad it's not just me. I couldn't believe the way he was being questioned but remember her from the trial. Only watched the very end of it (the trial) and remember Judge Vonda being VERY prejudice towards the prosecution. She was said to have "roasted" Bashara before sentencing him. :roll

I wonder how it would perceived if a WHITE MALE prosecute with "attitude" towards a black FEMALE witness ( defendant) was badgering like this?

And an arrogant WHITE MALE judge was joining in at times?


It is doubly unfortunate that there is this clear and obvious bias since the case itself has nothing to do with "race" as far as I know??

I assume the entire point of this is that the JUDGE will have to make some sort of decision after all the submissions and testimony?

For or against Bob Bashara.

THAT seems pointless given that this judge is clearly VERY anti-Bob.

I heard talk of hearing adjourned until Nov 13th, 11:00AM.

Judge going to conference and starting another trial.

Bob Bashara raised issue of "not getting all his medication" where he is being held.. Judge agrees to sort it out.

Replay: Bob Bashara returns to the stand in retrial bid
By Elisha Anderson, Detroit Free Press 4:09 p.m. EDT October 19, 2015

Former Grosse Pointe Park businessman Bob Bashara is expected to return to the stand in a Detroit courtroom today for his third day of testimony in his quest for a retrial.

Bashara, 57, is serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for the 2012 murder of his wife, Jane Bashara. He is seeking a new trial, claiming his was denied a fair one last year.

A jury convicted Bashara of first-degree murder, but he maintains his innocence in the case. Officials have said Bashara orchestrated his wife's killing and conspired with his former handyman, Joseph Gentz, who told authorities he killed Jane Bashara at her husband's direction.

Gentz accepted a plea deal and is serving 17-28 years in prison for second-degree murder. As part of the deal, Gentz agreed to testify, but later refused.

In a motion filed seeking a new trial filed by his appellate attorney, Ronald Ambrose, Bashara took issue with the fact that he was unable to confront Gentz during the trial.

Bashara has also claimed during the evidentiary hearing in Wayne County Circuit Court that he wanted others to take the stand during his lengthy trial, but said they weren’t called by his trial attorneys.

Bashara has repeatedly dished out blame for his plight as he testified taking issue with a host of people, including several of his former attorneys, police, prosecutors, witnesses and reporters, calling the news media a "brood of vipers."

Testimony in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice has been wide-ranging. Among some of the other topics covered: Bashara's extramarital relationships with other women, his involvement in the BDSM – bondage, discipline and sadomasochism – lifestyle, his use of cocaine, lies he told and issues he had with his defense at his trial.

Ex-friend haunted by Bashara case, fears court return
By George Hunter | The Detroit News | October 29, 2015


She’s changed her name, moved and switched jobs, but she can’t shake the stigma of Bob Bashara.

The woman formerly known as Janet Leehmann says she’s still paying for her brief dalliance with the Grosse Pointe Park businessman who was found guilty of orchestrating the death of his wife, Jane. She’s struggling with guilt, self-doubt, regret — and fear a judge’s upcoming ruling could force her to relive a what she considers a colossal embarrassment.

“When will this be over? I need to move on,” said the 56-year-old grandmother who became known as “the woman from Oregon,” during Bashara’s scandalous murder trial.

Leehmann’s bawdy testimony during the preliminary examination and trial about her brief involvement with Bashara made headlines — an ordeal Leehmann is afraid she’ll have to repeat if Bashara, who was sentenced to life in prison, is granted a new trial. His hearing is set to resume Nov. 13 in Wayne Circuit Court.

“Testifying was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life,” she said in an exclusive interview with The Detroit News. “I didn’t do anything wrong; all I did was answer an online ad, and I end up being mortified in this case that’s getting national attention.

“It would’ve been awesome for my kids not to have found out their mom has a kinky side.”
