  Gillooly's Admissions

Associated Press
Wednesday, February 2, 1994; Page C7




When Jeff Gillooly pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of racketeering, he made the following admissions in connection with the attack on skater Nancy Kerrigan:

 Gillooly admitted he; his ex-wife, Tonya Harding; her sometime bodyguard Shawn Eckardt; alleged getaway driver Derrick Smith; and Smith's nephew, alleged attacker Shane Stant, agreed on or about Dec. 28 to attack Kerrigan, striking her in the leg "with a dangerous weapon." The group is identified as "the enterprise" in court documents.

 Several members of the enterprise taped the conversation in which they discussed the attack on Kerrigan, without making all members of the group aware that the discussion was being taped.

 Between Dec. 28 and Jan. 7, Gillooly and "others within the enterprise," entered a "dwelling" in Detroit intending to commit assault.

 On Jan. 6, members of the enterprise struck Kerrigan on the leg in Detroit with a dangerous weapon.

 Gillooly and others within the enterprise agreed in Portland's Multnomah County between Dec. 28 and Jan. 7 to commit perjury by lying in sworn statements about what they knew about the attack on Kerrigan.

 Gillooly and others within the enterprise agreed in neighboring Clackamas County between Dec. 28 and Jan. 7 to commit perjury by lying in sworn statements about what they knew about the attack on Kerrigan.

 Between Dec. 28 and Jan. 7, members of the enterprise destroyed physical evidence that "might have aided in the discovery and apprehension of members of the enterprise."
