'jkV V aw V But he acknowledged that i By GENE WEINGARTEN Free Preis Lansing Staff LANSING - State Sen. Arthur Cartwright Thursday waived his right to a preliminary hearing on charges of expense account padding, saying through his attorney that he'd prefer to go straight to trial without additional publicity. The waiver thwarted prosecutor's plans to call a troop of witnesses Thursday, including restaurant owners, Senate staffers, and at least one Lansing lobbyist. Their testimony was expected to link the 68- year-old Detroit Democrat to allegedly falsified dinner receipts and travel vouchers. Lansing District Judge Terrance Clem tentatively scheduled Cartwright's Circuit Court arraignment for next Friday. Clem said a Circuit Court trial date would be set after arraignment. LAST MONTH, Attorney General Frank Kelley charged that Cartwright fraudulently obtained more than $600 by submitting doctored receipts for his Senate expense account. Cartwright, who could face a 14-year prison term on each of five felony charges, has pleaded innocent and is free on his own recognizance. Thursday's hearing had been scheduled so Clem could determine whether the charges were sufficiently documented to order Cartwright to trial. Cartwright's attorney, Dennis W. Archer of Detroit, said the hearing was waived so pre-trial publicity wouldn't prejudice prospective jurors. He acknowledged that Clem probably wouldn't have dismissed all charges if the hear- Caucus split on Geralds LANSING - (AP) The political future of Rep. Monte Geralds, D-Madison Heights, was still undecided Thursday after Democratic lawmakers concluded a second day of debate over whether to expel him. A weary Geralds convicted last month on two counts of embezzlement appeared twice before his colleagues, who met for nearly five hours behind closed doors. A similar meeting Wednesday lasted more than four hours, and regular House sessions were canceled both days. House Speaker Bobby Crim said some Democratic had privately asked Geralds to resign, but he insisted he would fight to keep his job. "There are some who would feel more comfortable if he would resign," Crim said. "IA have not asked him to resign." The caucus was scheduled to meet again Friday, but a vote on the House floor over whether to kick Gerlads out could not come until next week. Republicans already have asked that Geralds be removed, and have said they would introduce a resolution to expel him if his own party took no action. Tape of strangling offered LOS ANGELES - (AP) - A Massachusetts prison escapee says he has a tape recording made during the murder of Kathleen Robinson, one of the 13 Hillside Strangler victims, a newspaper reported Thursday. The Los Angeles Herald Examiner reported that George Shamshak told the paper in a phone call from prison Saturday that the tape was made in a van while Miss Robinson, 17, was being strangled last Nov. 16. He wanted to sell the tape to the newspaper. Shamshak said he possesses five tapes relating to the murders and that their contents show three persons were involved in the ' slayings one of them a woman who later became a strangler victim herself, the paper said. Shamshak's attorney, Henry Wynn, denied that his client had any tapes, however. SHAMSHAK SAID the tapes would clear him of any involvement in the murders. "I have never killed anyone in my life," he is quoted as saying, "I just happened to be a willing dupe a pawn. Somebody held something over my head." Shamshak, who was serving a prison term for armed robbery in Massachusetts when he escaped last fall has been questioned by Los Angeles police in at least two of the strangler murders. Police say he had special knowledge n the cases. The convict said he offered the tapes to police but "the police didn't want to offer me the deal I wanted. I wanted immunity, but they want to prosecute me now, from what I understand, for two murders." The paper said negotiations with Shamshak bogged down when prison officials refused to permit any more calls to Shamshak and the newspaper's editor, James G. Bellows, decided "not to get into checkbook journalism." "Being able to save for a car. I'll pay half and my dad's going to pay half. I also went to Sea World,. Disney World, Wet 'n Wild.
