Paul Januzzo's attorney argued Monday in a Cobb County courtroom that his client deserved a second trial.
A Cobb County judge needs more time to consider if the former CEO of Glock Inc. needs a new trial after he was convicted of theft and racketeering in March, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. Paul Januzzo is the former CEO of Glock Inc., which is headquartered in Smyrna. Earlier this year he was found guilty of theft and racketeering and sentenced to seven years in prison and 13 years probation. Jurors found Januzzo guilty of embezzling $5 million of company money between 1993 and 2001 and of stealing a custom-made pistol. However, Monday his attorney John Da Grossa Smith argued before Cobb County Judge LaTain Kell that prosecutors had never proved that his client stole the pistol, only that it was loaned to him. They then linked …

The verdict came down Friday afternoon in Cobb Superior Court.
Attorneys for Paul Jannuzzo plan to appeal Friday's Cobb County verdict, in which the former Glock CEO was found guilty of racketeering. Glock, which manufactures semi-automatic, polymer handguns, and supplies firearms to the majority of law enforcement agencies in the U.S., has its North American headquarters in Smyrna at 6000 Highland Parkway. The AJC is reporting that sentencing for Jannuzzo is scheduled for later this month. Jannuzzo could face up to 30 years in prison. Prosecutors argued Jannuzzo conspired with Dunwoody lawyer Peter Manown, another former company executive, to misappropriate millions of dollars from the company, over a 12-year period, using duplicate bank accounts, forged documents, and fraudulent loans.

Request from contractor would have had concrete trucks rolling through a residential neighborhood as early as 4 o'clock in the morning.
Smyrna’s firearm manufacturing giant gets Jonquil City residents fired up. It happened again at Monday’s Mayor and City Council meeting where Glock, Inc., again appeared on the agenda. This time, contractor JE Dunn Construction came before the mayor and council asking for extended work hours to pour the concrete foundation for Glock’s Building B, the first of four buildings as part of its planned expansion. Last year, more than 100 people filled the council chambers to watch the council vote 7-0 to allow Glock to expand its assembly plant located on Highlands Parkway. From that proposal, Glock has cleared out 18 acres of heavily wooded land on its property with plans to construct four new buildings on the land that is zoned Light …

Chief Stanley Hook says "Not at all'' when asked if gun manufacturer Glock had financially supported his department.
Patch has reported here before on Glock Inc.'s former general counsel and former Vinings resident, Paul F. Jannuzzo, who is set to go on trial next year in Cobb County Superior Court on charges related to allegations that he misappropriated millions of dollars from the international firearms maker. But an AJC investigation that landed across the front page of Sunday’s edition did much more than scratch the surface of the white collar crime that is of global interest. And while the investigative piece written by M.B. Pell has yet to be published online, those in the Jonquil City who have read the print copy were buzzing Monday about the people and details involved in not the one, but the two impending trials. Glock, which manufactures semi-…

A quick peek at what's going on in and around our local Patch.
In catching up with news around the Smyrna-Vinings area, St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church held a food drive last week and were able to gather about 120 pounds worth of food that was delivered to the MUST Ministries’ facility in Smyrna. “Not as much as I hoped, but not too bad,’’ said Carol Kirshner, St. Benedict’s mission and outreach coordinator.
