We deeply appreciate the prayers and good wishes from so many of you. The case ended in Jan 2014 with the judge ruling in favor of Dr.Dammai.
After examining extensive evidence at a hearing 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 supporting the elaborate lies DOJ, FDA and FBI propagated through press releases to influence the course of justice. When it came to actually proving the deceitful claims, these prosecutors continually schemed to cause indefinite delay of trial to force a plea, resorting to a frequently used strategy of abruptly adding an unnamed defendant to circumvent 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 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 were scheduled to testify, but turned out to be cowards and failed to appear in court when challenged to testify under oath. In the end, the prosecutors, after strategically maneuvering to gain advantage by lowering the burden of proof, failed to meet even the minimum 'preponderance of evidence' standards required at hearings (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 a prolific stem cell salesman, selling stem cells to Francisco Morales, David Steenblock and other SNAKE OIL doctors. In light of the 5 million dollars Goldfinch and Yair Adereth made from the stem cell scam, Goldfinch ranks as the all-time top illegal stem cell salesman, comfortably beating the next best, a fraudster on FBI most wanted list Stephen Van Rooyen who made $1.2 million dollars. Goldfinch benefited tremendously from the scam that he ran with his business partner Yair Adereth for 3 years. Stephen Lewis Goldfinch began his scam while attending part-time MBA program at Citadel in 2005 and continued the illegal activities into law school at Charleston School of Law, paying for his MBA and law school with the ill-gotten money. The lucrative scam helped him get married and buy houses, one of which was a John's Island home. Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth's 'Biotech Company' was laughably this ill-equipped middle-class residential home on John's island, SC from where he illegally supplied stem cells to Francisco Morales and other stem cell charlatans. For 3 years, Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth ran an elaborate scam that involved illegal use of stem cells for treatment of desperate patients suffering from neurological and other terminal diseases. Stephen Goldfinch's shifty tales and cunning lies convinced news media that Dr.Dammai was to blame. Dr.Dammai has responded to the false witness relentlessly spread by this disgraced South Carolina politician Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr. who is endowed with ample immoral values and witless bravado. Truth about Stephen Goldfinch was buried by the conspiring prosecutors, FBI and FDA. However, the outstanding investigative work by Will Folks of Fitsnews exposed Goldfinch's con to the world.

Patients petitioned DOJ to bring SC Senator Stephen Lewis Goldfinch jr to justice for his crimes, but prosecutors Samuel J. Louis and Cedric L. Joubert conspired to deny patients the due justice. To press their case, vigilant citizens collected and published substantial evidence in the form of authentic emails and images of check payments made to Stephen Goldfinch by Francisco Morales (and others) for stem cell purchases from the "biotech" company owned by Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth. These emails and checks confirmed Goldfinch and Adereth received payments for stem cells they sold across state lines to medical con men as part of a scam offering miracle cures to terminally ill patients. Texas newspaper reports confirmed Stephen Goldfinch and Yair Adereth made 5 Million dollars from such fraudulent sale of stem cells across state lines, clear felony violations of interstate commerce. FBI, FDA and the two Houston prosecutors intentionally covered up the overwhelming evidence of these and other serious felony violations by Goldfinch and Adereth. The bias displayed by these 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 the principles of equal justice guaranteed under US constitution: TheBitchNiche; Stephen Goldfinch- stem cell scammer to stalker
