Scott Fairlamb, former MAA fighter files an appeal of his conviction -Plea Agreement be damned.
It appears Fairlamb is using Hodgkin’s MO. Enter a Plea Agreement. Appeal Conviction feigning some defect like mental illness or prosecutorial misconduct because Donald Trump is their Lord & savior
Brief Biography of Defendant Scott Fairlamb
In May of 2020 Defendant Fairlamb made the news because he decided to defy the New Jersey Governor’s (temporary) Lockdown during the height of New York & New Jersey’s 2020 Covid-19. Again at the time New Jersey had confirmed COVID-19 Cases 155,092 and with 11,144 fatalities.
Owner Scott Fairlamb, backed by supporters, announced his plans to reopen on Monday whether Gov. Phil Murphy allows it or not.
“He has overstepped his boundaries and it’s time for these gyms, that are, that are essential to open up,” Fairlamb told CBS New York.

Defendant Fairlamb Plea Agreement August 2021
If you take a moment and read the signed August 2021 Plea Agreemento (see above for embedded DOJ-OPA link) you’ll notice that the original expiration date for the Plea Agreement was June 15, 2021 —it’s not uncommon for the Defendant and Prosecution to go back and forth as negotiating a plea agreement can be complex and rather time consuming. As you’ll note on page 1 of the Plea Agreement —the Defendant didn’t sign it until August 4, 2021.
On November 3, 2021 the Government filed SENTENCING MEMORANDUM by USA as to SCOTT KEVIN FAIRLAMB -see DDC-ECF setting aside the deadline date —the Plea Agreement is pretty broiler plate.
GiveSendGo rears it’s head -again-
Well. Well.. imagine that Defendant Fairlamb established a GiveSendGo crowd fundraiser with a $100K goal 1. He’s crowd funding campaign, which was created in July 2021. Defendant Fairlamb has been in custody for several months only generated $38,214 — the relevance here is the Government offered Defendant Fairlamb a plea agreement in early May 2021. The plea agreement wasn’t executed until early August 2021.
And in that tight less than 60 day window he setup a GiveSendGo, effectively retracted his plea agreement by filing an appeal. And yet his GiveSendGo campaign he pretends that he’s a “good Christian” all while accepting zero responsibility for his actions that caused the shuttering of his business…
November 10, 2021 GSG update:
Since my arrest our financial struggles have now made losing our home all too real. A home that we dreamt of someday raising a family in, now might not be ours much longer. After we closed the doors to Fairlamb Fit our income suffered a huge loss. My fearless and determined wife Andrea stepped up taking on as many hours as she could to try and keep our bills out of the red. Unfortunately, she was just laid off by her employer last month. This, coupled with the upsetting news of my sentence, has us both looking for answers.
The tough road that lies ahead will no doubt be a bumpy one. However, I know that with God's love and grace he will carry us through it. He who came by both water and blood I ask to place us on the alter of his heart. Widen our paths dear Father, continue to be our good Sheppard as we walk faithfully in your word. May we always rejoice in hope, endure in suffering, and persist in prayer.
Incidentally in June of 2020 Defendant Fairlamb apparently “threatened” House of Representatives. Side note to those who tried to falsely smear Rep Bush’s actual concern for her safety and that of her staff. Now would be a really good time to reevaluate what is wrong with your damaged soul. Rep Bush has been targeted over and over by the Trump-MAGA-QANON mob. That’s not opinion. Those are the previously undisclosed facts contained within the Government’s sentencing memorandum (see DDC-ECF)
If you think that Rep Bush is “over reacting” to “it’s just a meme” or you think any elected official deserves to be on the receiving end of numerous death threats… then perhaps you should pay close attention to pages 22 thru 24 of the Government’s Sentencing Memorandum
…on January 10, 2021, the FBI received an anonymous tip stating: “Scott Fairlamb has a history of violent threats and did participate in Stop the Steal Rally. Unfortunately he deleted all social media accounts after riots.”… The tipster then provided the following Instagram post from Fairlamb’s Instagram account, @FairlambFit, directed at Congresswoman Cori Bush….
…has been unable to locate either Exhibit 2 (Instagram video from scaffolding) or Exhibit 3 (Facebook video with baton) in the Facebook or Instagram search warrant returns or on Fairlamb’s seized cell phone. This is consistent with citizen tips submitted to the FBI that stated that the inculpatory videos had since been deleted from Facebook. During his interview with the government, Fairlamb denied destroying evidence…
You’ll note numerous footnotes state the following behavior and it’s important given the Government could have easily charged him with multiple counts of obstruction of Justice by deleting evidence, by lying to the FBI…
This video was provided via a tip to the FBI. A search warrant executed on Fairlamb’s Instagram page did not recover this video, suggesting that Fairlamb deleted it prior to service of the preservation request.
and yes the Government goes there with the Defendant’s GiveSendGo campaign…it was literally the last page of the Sentencing Memorandum — so there appears to be a discernible pattern emerging:
Defendant & USA hammer out a plea agreement and statement of facts
Defendant then is sentenced pursuant to the plea agreement.
Defendant then files a Notice of Appeal
Defense Attorneys suddenly appear on Cable News Programs front facing potential “mental illness” wasn’t properly addresses by the parties, or potential Brady violations, or other constitutional-civil rights abuse…
Simultaneously launch a GiveSendGo fundraising campaign
The frustrating factor is the entire premise of a Plea Agreement is the Defendant is forthright and forthcoming with information relevant to the “ongoing cases and investigations” —the question really should be “on what grounds” are the defendant(s) arguing in their appeal. Which means wait for the Defendant’s Appeal Brief to be docketed…
Lastly, if my memory serves me correctly the following Defendants have also filed a notice of appeal concerning their conviction and sentencing:,
-also this week is off the rails busy for me so I might not be publishing an article everyday this week. I just don’t have the bandwidth and I’d rather be upfront with my readers by properly setting their expectations. Because the amount of research I do, sourcing open source count filings, while highlighting what I think is important -all of which takes time.
But again I genuinely think a discernible pattern has emerged and that’s something I would keep an eye on. -Filey
