Yoko Ono's Driver Jailed; High Bail Set
Thu Dec 14, 4:49 PM



NEW YORK - A chauffeur for Yoko Ono threatened to release embarrassing recordings and photographs of her and warned he would have her killed unless she paid him $2 million, a prosecutor said at a court hearing Thursday.

The defendant, Koral Karsan, 50, told Ono "he had people on standby waiting to kill the victim on his orders," Assistant District Attorney Maureen O'Connor said at Karsan's arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Police arrested the Turkish-born Karsan, who lives in Amityville, N.Y., on Wednesday and charged him with first-degree attempted grand larceny for allegedly trying to shake down Ono, the 73-year-old widow of the late John Lennon.

At Karsan's arraignment, Judge Tanya Kennedy ordered him jailed set bail at $500,000 bond or $250,000 cash. If he posts bail, prosecutors will have 72 hours to check the source of the money and raise any objections.

O'Connor had asked Kennedy to set high bail because she said Karsan was an "extraordinary flight risk." She said he has been in the country about 10 years, has family, property and contacts in Turkey, and "there is no doubt he would flee" if released on bail, the prosecutor told the judge.

Karsan's lawyer, Patrick Kevin Brosnahan, said his client was not guilty and "will vigorously dispute these charges."

"There are other issues between my client and the complainant," Brosnahan said. He refused to explain what those were but he said Ono has had similar issues with other employees.

As he was being led from a Manhattan police station Wednesday, Karsan denied the allegations against him and said Ono was trying "to stop me from pursuing a sexual harassment case."

Elliott Mintz, a spokesman for Ono, denied Karsan's statement.

Ono reported the plot, Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said.

A felony complaint filed at Karsan's arraignment says he gave Ono a letter on Dec. 8 - the anniversary of Lennon's fatal shooting in front of the Dakota apartment building where the couple lived and where Ono still lives.

The complaint says the letter contained numerous allegations about her and personal information about her, her friends and her family members. The letter also claims Karsan taped conversations and took photographs that he would release to the media if Ono did not give him $2 million, the complaint says.

Part of the letter, released by prosecutors, said:

"I will not only write about these recordings but will distribute them to European broadcast stations. Be advised I am moving back to Turkey permanently and will publish my book in Turkey and will distribute the prints throughout the Internet from Iran where I have already secured e-commerce capability."

The complaint says that on Dec. 12 Karsan went to the office of a second witness, identified by prosecutors as Ono's lawyer Jonas Herbsman. Karsan told him that if his client did not give him the $2 million he "would ruin the life of (Ono), her children and associates" and have her killed, the complaint says.

Mintz, Ono's spokesman, said Karsan worked for Ono for at least six years, driving her almost daily when she was in New York. Prosecutors said she paid him between $150,000 and $200,000 a year.

"She is one woman who has been through enough," Mintz told The Associated Press. "For an employee - especially a trusted employee who drove her - to attempt a shakedown has left her just absolutely shocked."

"You're reminded that this takes place around that time of the anniversary (of Lennon's death) when she is in a particularly vulnerable position," Mintz said. "It just adds insult to injury. This one's really cold."

On the night of Dec. 8, 1980, Lennon was returning home with Ono from a recording studio when Mark David Chapman opened fire with a .38-caliber revolver, hitting him four times.

Fans observe the anniversary of Lennon's death by gathering at Strawberry Fields, a section of Central Park opposite the Dakota. In the past, Ono and Sean Lennon have placed candles on the windowsill of their apartment as a message of support.

scum. and if he get's out on bail, you know he's immediately out of the country. a news show i heard earlier today stated that he had threatened to kill yoko and sean (i believe it was the today show - one of those morning programs) if his demands were not met.

We all still grieve the loss of John Lennon. He was by all and many accounts a kind, caring, and peace loving man. He was one of our favorite residents and walked the streets of NYC everyday because he loved people so much. My Mom, who met him as a little girl, just about puked this morning from reading that. Dec. 8th is a very depressing day here on the anniversary of the killing of John Lennon. I really wish these sick fruitcakes would leave his family alone.

Yoko Ono is a lovely lady and if you met her, it would take about 3 seconds to see why he loved her so much. She still talks with people and is not a snob at all. There is no doubt they loved each other. He was a through and through sweetpea and so is she.

'I am not a big fan of Yoko's but'

After seeing it nude in the 'Two Virgins' picture, I'm not either.
