- SG-108212 - Bigamy - Sangamon County Sheriff's report I have refiled for annulment based on bigamy and have asked the court to order him to provide proof of his divorce from Sherry. He can't because there is no proof. They ARE still married. The Sangamon County prosecutor needs to be pressured to uphold their own state's criminal statute! Yes, that is right, legislatures pass laws and they ignore them: 720 ILCS 5/ Criminal Code of 1961.
(720 ILCS 5/11‑12)
(from Ch. 38, par. 11‑12)
- S08-24207 - Springfield Police Department report of Criminal Sexual Assault - The felony statute of limitations is not up. Please ask them to reopen the case, and ask for a complete investigation of how Dean behaved RIGHT AFTER the incident. The nurse and the police officer who took the pics of the injuries,at St. John's hospital were witnesses to him going nuts on the phone line. They need to get the phone records! I tried to subpoena them but misunderstood discovery and missed a deadline during the last annulment case. I haven't given up, but law enforcement COULD get them so easily. When he found out I was going asking for a felony charge, he fell back on his MO and reconciled with Kathy Warren, who had filed for him to be held in contempt and accused him to Judge Braud of defrauding her out of the "foundation house" she paid for with a cashiers check. That was DAYS after the beating, that hearing. The judge might remember it. It was reset for later hearing. Damn them for not having transcripts! This guys MO is to find a woman to hide behind, to escape the consequences for hurting the previous one. Or to talk the present one into dropping the charges or the restraining order or what have you...if he can or has to. I am telling the truth. He should be charged with what he did, whether we reconciled later or not!
- S10-63229 - Child Abuse - Springfield Police Department report of him burning my daughter with a cigarette. Yes my daughter finally came through for me and made the report. This last week she was told there is not enough evidence and it had been too long. Translation: " 1. We don't give a damn about the statute of limitations not being up. 2. The police took the report and information on where the evidence can be found, but they don't actually investigate many crimes unless we ask them to, and we aren't going to ask them too, because we care more about staying within our budget and making higher pay for less work. We like easy, uncomplicated cases and we really don't like cases with a victim in another state." They might deny this wholeheartedly but it IS objective reality. Oh well, the monster burned a child's back with a cigarette. Not their problem, even though he lives there and did it there and it IS their problem.
- 2010 05260018 - Attempted murder - Ashtabula County Sheriff's department report. Now might be a good time to call and demand that he be held accountable for hurting me too. Also, please pressure the state's attorney in Illinois not to drop this one, no matter what the victim does. Some battered women's groups, like in California, are fighting to let women off the hook for not showing up to testify against the man. I don't know if Illinois is a state that issues contempt against a victim that doesn't show up. I say issue the contempt. Stop sending a double message. Women who go back to men like this, me included, have something wrong with them. We aren't talking sibling like fights with Dean. He's a monster! If Patricia Brown West Johnson would have been made to return to Illinois for Dean's prosecution, it would have saved many, many women over the years. He strangled her! The police took pictures of the marks on her neck! She had returned to her home state to flee him and didn't want to bother with following through on the charges. I have been in those shoes. After he tricked me into moving to Tucson, I was truly homeless and didn't want to live anymore. I went back to him and he hurt me over and over and over again. Meanwhile covering himself should I go to the police by lying to Kathy Warren. She and Lisa Saelens have lied for him numerous times! And, Dean owes Kathy Warren a TON of money, for she was his sugar mama, even after he abused her! And there are police reports and an arrest for having done so! When she tried to have him charged in December 2007, he his behind me! I stood there holding his hand while he talked to the policeman at the door, claiming Kathy was jealous because he had married me! I don't have time to post all those documents on google docs right now, but I have them, and so do the police! Sangamon County Prosecutor 217-753-6696 and Ashtabula County Prosecutor 440-576-3662.
- TO WHOEVER HELPED HIM BOND OUT OF JAIL: You ARE an enabler. This man has harmed at least 4 children (3 are now adults) that I know personally, and many women from different states: Ohio-Robin West, South Dakota-Lori McNealy, New Jersey-Sharyn Goldman (there is presently a warrant out for his arrest out of Paterson for having violated her restraining order), Washington State - Patricia Brown Johnson and Melodi (don't know her last name), Alaska - Rondi Eldridge and Sherry West, Springfield and Leland Grove, Illinois - Kathy Warren, Springfield, IL - Lisa Saelens and various crack prostitutes, New York State - Kathleen Callahan, Upper Peninsula in Michigan - Sherry West, Lincoln, IL - Sherry West. Oh and let us not forget the men he has harmed: South Dakota - Dr. Leon McNealy, New Jersey - James Goldman. And I am sure there are many, many more. He traveled around the country for 10 years and brags about it here, but I know that he told me he could find a woman to take him in within a few days of having arrived in a city or town, if needed. He boasted to me of having been a pimp's assistant in Boston, where his duties included disposing of bodies. He bragged of sitting in on the Harvard Campus classes, and about participating in impromptu intellectual discussions while loitering at casual meeting places of students. A woman who knew him in Alaska contacted me because of this blog and told me he used to speak of his plans to exploit older and married women. If you do check out his old blog I linked to earlier in this paragraph, keep in mind that while writing to impress women on the net, as if he were a real renascence man, he was seriously abusing his wife Sherry and his adopted sons. Sick huh? But oh so true.
- He is a serial abuser. When he feels heat from abusing one victim, he moves on to a new one. That has been his MO since he harmed a woman near the Air Force Base in Washington State, according to Patricia Johnson, his first wife I have written about previously. And guess what? It works! The focus on the obsessed stalker partner by battered women's groups has left a huge void when it comes to the "serial abuser." Dean has pointed to every past victim I know personally as one obsessed with him. Of course, that is why they reported his crimes and/or wanted him held accountable. The Sangamon County court docket shows this to be true, as well as Sioux Falls, South Dakota, as well as Ashtabula County Ohio. Sangamon County doesn't record proceedings and so vital evidence in the form of transcripts, of the lengths he goes to to point the finger back at the victim does not exist (but is contained in police reports from Dec. 07). Shame that Sangamon County residents haven't done anything about this obvious Constitutional violation. Shame that Illinois is a two party consent to record state. I don't wonder anymore why it is known as a corrupt state.
Shame on you who helped him bond out! Shame on you! You have spit in the face of all the other victims. If I believed in the devil I would say you are doing his work. I apologize for having done it myself. Sincerely.
There was a post on lovefraud.com about sociopath's victims who rationalize. I don't have time to dig up the link but it was a revelation someone in therapy had after being victimized by a sociopath. Dean knows his victims and he knows how to manipulate them. And they usually are intelligent women with some emotional/mental problems or odd life history or circumstances. He knows how to wear them down. He is intelligent and that is one reason he figured out early that if he just moves on, to the next victim and/or to the next jurisdiction, where, because of the shortcomings in DV laws, he can start at square one - Misdemeanor which usually means less than that, or nothing. Law enforcement has failed to do their job in so many cities! And even now, Bigamy, a felony in Illinois, is being blown off by the Sangamon County prosecutor. Citizens elect legislators. They write and pass laws on behalf of the citizens. And locally or county elected prosecutors decide those laws mean diddly squat.
Help all crime victims.
Find out how they are treated in your area and do something about it if theyaren't treated right. Dig deep. The stats are not reliable. It is a nationwide problem but mostly a local or county political issue. That is one reason it is not being addressed. And demand that our government stop throwing our money at bureaucracies that have become "Potemkin's Villages."
Update - August 18th
Roma Larson resigned and I didn't know it until today. Hmmph! And her libelous and defamatory statement about me have not been addressed. I do know that they have divided the office into felony and misdemeanor. Interesting turn of events.
Seems Kathleen Callahan filed a motion to modify the restraining order and then didn't show up to the hearing, according to the Sangamon County Court docket site. So her civil restraining order was dropped. Knowing Dean, if given the room to do so, he will wiggle and squirm and lie and connive any way he can to skirt the law, once again. All the man does is lie. That's it. That is all he knows. That is all he is. Every one in his long line of victims believed him to one degree or another. Some were or became liars themselves. The perfect victims? No. But then, he would never choose the "perfect" victim. They must all be tainted in one way or another, or he might surely be caught, once and for all.
I read a really good response to this writer on lovefraud.com this week Letters to Lovefraud: I wanted him to be the guy of my dreams, but he's nothing but a fraud
(QUALIFICATION: The people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid to incorporate The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss this. This is MY life, and I am a witness to crimes no one seems to want to do anything about. I have over 2 inches of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors here have been reported to the Attorney General's office in Illinois as well as the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, and are part of various court records. It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors. He was recently on probation for resisting a peace officer and I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and to the best of my knowledge there is a warrant out of South Dakota right now also. Any questions? Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 440-285-2648. Google "Kathleen Callahan and Ambien" for links with information showing Kathleen Callahan is a public figure. My friend Janet Makinen was involved in that suit as well and you can see her involvement if you google her name with Ambien.)
