We deeply appreciate the prayers and good wishes from so many of you. The case ended in Jan 2014 with ruling in favor of Dr.Dammai.
After examining extensive evidence at a hearing held on Jan 27th, 2014, federal judge Francis Stacy dismissed government's claims and RULED in favor of Dr.Dammai, closing the case as class B misdemeanor, a $500 fine for 'mislabeling' stem cells (legal def.: "stem cells and packaging did not contain any directions for use"). The deliberate false charges against Dr.Dammai were DISMISSED after Houston, Texas prosecutors Samuel J. Louis and Cedric L. Joubert failed to present even a single piece of evidence to support the elaborate lies DOJ, FDA and FBI propagated through press releases meant to influence the course of justice. When it came to actually proving their deceitful claims, these prosecutors continually schemed to cause indefinite delay of trial to force a plea, and resorted to a frequently used strategy, abruptly adding an unnamed defendant to circumvent the speedy trial clock. In this case, after 2 years of fighting by Dr.Dammai, these two unscrupulous prosecutors added a Mexico citizen with absolutely no connection to this case, knowing it would take many years to present this defendant to court IF ever FBI/FDA even intended to look for this defendant. With the trial indefinitely postponed, the only path left for Dr.Dammai to conclude the case within a reasonable time was to plead to a misdemeanor to sever himself from the complex case and proceeded to fight all charges at a hearing by a federal judge. The dishonest prosecutors, FDA and FBI exploited this plea as an opportunity to spread more lies via official press releases.
At the Jan 27th hearing, FDA and FBI agents who "investigated" Dr.Dammai turned out to be cowards and avoided appearing in court when challenged to testify under oath. Prior to the Jan 27th hearing, the lead prosecutor Samuel J. Louis abruptly resigned when FITSNEWS broke the pioneering story detailing Stephen Goldfinch's crimes. Samuel Louis did not have the face to even show up at the January 27th hearing, a testament to the falsehoods he spread for years and the coverup of Goldfinch's crimes he orchestrated. Cedric L. Joubert, the other prosecutor, after strategically maneuvering to gain advantage of the lower burden of proof of a hearing, failed to meet even the minimum 'preponderance of evidence' standards required at the hearing (as opposed to 'beyond reasonable doubt' standard applied at trial). Thus, under the protection of God, and against all the odds that the prosecutors/FBI/FDA piled on for 3 years, Dr.Dammai's case ended with a $500 fine 'mislabeling', a technical error in preparing documents.
The Original Scam Involving Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth: While the above case was ongoing, the despicable South Carolina state Senator Stephen Lewis Goldfinch Jr (A.K.A. Stephen Goldfinch, Senator) spread many lies and false witness to hide the truth that he was the most prolific illegal stem cell salesman of US origin, selling stem cells to Francisco Morales, David Steenblock and other SNAKE OIL practitioners. In light of the 5 million dollars that Goldfinch and Yair Adereth made from the scam, Goldfinch ranks at the top of the stem cell fraudsters pile, comfortably beating the next best, a South African man listed on FBI's Most-Wanted, Stephen Van Rooyen, who made $1.2 million dollars. Goldfinch benefited tremendously from the scam that he ran for 3-years with his business partner Yair Adereth. Stephen Lewis Goldfinch began his scam while attending part-time MBA program at Citadel in 2005 and continued the fraud into his law school at Charleston School of Law, paying for his MBA and law school with the ill-gotten money. In their scam, the partner Yair Adereth posed as a medical doctor and fraudulently authorized collection of newborn cord blood/tissues from unsuspecting mothers who delivered at maternity clinics in Conway, SC. Stephen Goldfinch's local connections with these maternity clinics was pivotal in coordinating this part of the scheme. The cord blood was then sent to Medical University of South Carolina for testing, again Yair Adereth posed as a medical doctor to facilitate testing and processing. Purified stem cells produced for non-human research purposes was then marketed and sold by Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth to quack doctors in a conspiracy to defraud desperately ill patients with bogus promises that stem cells would cure their condition. The lucrative scam, described as "heinous crimes" by SC legislators, helped Stephen Goldfinch get married and buy houses, one of which was a home in John's Island, SC. Laughably, Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth claim this ill-equipped John's Island home as their 'Biotech Company', and used the home for illegal activities to supply stem cells to Francisco Morales and other stem cell charlatans. For 3 years, Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth ran an elaborate scam that provided illegal treatments to desperate patients suffering from neurological and other terminal diseases. Half a man that he is, even as he publicly spread false witness, shifty tales and cunning lies to fool the news media, behind the scenes Stephen Goldfinch was lying, crying, begging and pleading at the feet of the prosecutors to save his political career. Dr.Dammai has responded (and will continue to respond) to the false witness by the disgraced South Carolina politician Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr. who is endowed with ample immoral values and witless bravado. While the sordid details of Stephen Goldfinch's crimes still remains buried by government attorneys Samuel J Louis and Cedric Joubert, (and FBI and FDA), the outstanding investigative work by Will Folks of Fitsnews is credited for uncovering the central theme of Goldfinch's con to the world. Yair Adereth hurriedly left USA to his native country Israel when the investigation initially began and reportedly remains in Tel Aviv.

After FITSNEWS broke the story, patients petitioned DOJ to bring SC Senator Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr to justice for his crimes, but government attorney Samuel J. Louis and Cedric L. Joubert denied patients their due justice. On multiple occasions Cedric Joubert publicly even claimed to news reporters that his intent was to prosecute Stephen Goldfinch and that the case was being transferred from Texas to Federal court in South Carolina. However, the dishonest prosecutors never transferred the case and covered up the felony crimes of Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth. Faced with the lack of sense of duty from prosecutors, FBI and FDA, vigilant citizens tried to press their case via social media and personal emails to then US Attorney Kenneth Magidson. These citizens collected substantial evidence in the form of authentic email exchanges between Stephen Goldfinch and the quack doctors who purchased stem cells from Goldfinch. Images of check payments received by Stephen Goldfinch from Francisco Morales (and other con men) for stem cell purchases were also published via social media by the citizens. These emails and checks confirmed that Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth actively conspired with medical con men and quack doctors offering miracle stem cell cures in a multi-state scheme to defraud terminally ill patients. Texas newspapers independently confirmed that Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth made 5 Million dollars from fraudulent sale of stem cells across state borders, which are felony violations of interstate commerce. FBI, FDA and the two Houston prosecutors covered up the overwhelming evidence of what is described as "heinous crimes" perpetrated by Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth. The lack of character displayed by the prosecutors, FDA-OCI and FBI as it relates to Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr. and Yair Adereth's crimes is viewed by public as a disgrace to rule of law and principles of equal justice guaranteed under the US law: TheBitchNiche; Stephen Goldfinch- stem cell scammer to stalker
