STRAWBERRY/GOLDSCHMIDT PLEAD NOT GUILTY TO CONSPIRACY
Published December 15, 1994
Darryl Strawberry and his agent, Eric Goldschmidt, pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy and federal tax evasion yesterday. Strawberry arrived at the courthouse "via limousine with a bodyguard and left in the same manner." His case is schedule to be heard May 5 (Jennifer Frey, N.Y. TIMES, 12/15). NBC's Pete Williams reported that NBC has learned that "nine other current and former major league players are also under investigation." Williams also cited sources close to the investigation who say that "federal agents gathered evidence at a baseball show about two years ago, by secretly tape recording players who asked to be payed in cash with no records to the IRS" ("Nightly News," NBC, 12/14). Strawberry told reporters that the "real criminal here" is Meade Chasky, Strawberry's former card show agent who was granted immunity in exchange for testimony (Bill Madden, N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 12/15).
