What do Judge Nardulli's actions I have criticized on this blog have to do with the Constitution of the United States? At the time Mr. West went into the court for the purposes of fooling and defrauding his next female prey/victim, I had been sending out e-mails to people around Springfield, form e-mails, with links to a photobucket account where documents, as evidence, were presented, in support of my questioning why Mr. West has been able to get away with hurting so many women. I was actively and vocally exercising my right to question the behavior of Roma Larson and John Schmidt. John Schmidt was the elected prosecutor and Roma Larson the woman he had hired to prosecute DV cases. When the 19 photos of my injuries, some of which can be seen in youtube videos linked to in the video bar at the left, the police tried to arrest Mr. West and he managed to avoid it. The Springfield Police have a 24 hour window to arrest, and then the prosecutor has to issue a warrant. The Sojourn shelter advocates who were present at the hospital, as well as the Prairie Center against sexual assault advocate convinced me to spend the night at the shelter. I was in a state of shock. Mr. West kept calling my cell phone repeatedly, a cell phone which was under his plan and I was in fear, not only of his revenge, but of losing my job, which had no sick days and which I had only recently been hired for. Plus, I had animals that needed feeding and watering. I did not live in Illinois. I had a home in Ohio. So, the DV advocates said they would speak to the prosecutor about my being able to talk to her by phone from Ohio. I waited at work each morning (I worked third shift) for her to call me on the work phone. I didn't want her call to come in on the cell phone on Dean West's account. At the end of the week Roma Larson and I finally talked and she was going to IMMEDIATELY charge him with a misdemeanor domestic violence and obtain a criminal restraining order. My big mistake? I asked "Isn't this a felony?" I am sure in Ohio it would have been charged as such. I have a link elsewhere on this blog, to the newspaper article about Roma Larson eventually being forced to resign after she charged another case as a misdemeanor when it should have been a felony charge, because of the $$$$ amount of the damage when some man drove his car through a window in an attempt to hurt his ex-wife. Rebecca, one of the advocates for Sojourn, told me privately that Roma Larson "stunk" in court when we discussed her apparent lack of fortitude in charging domestic violence cases.
Roma Larson told me that in order to charge a felony, a detective had to investigate. So, I waited what seemed to be forever for a detective to contact me and as the weeks went by and the detective reported to me that if it were charged it would be a misdemeanor I thought about the costs to me and the likelihood of his dealing it down to disorderly conduct and decided not to pursue charges. This was documented by Detective Oaks. I have the police report saying so. After a week, as is his Modus Operandi (the felony warrant out of South Dakota has a lot to do with his MO on the net) he began harassing me online. I reported this to the police and I apologized for backing out and asked that they re-open the case. No. Roma Larson would not. I was informed by the Prairie Center and Sojourn shelter advocates that it not unusual after a woman backs out of assisting in charging a perp in a DV case. So, I went over Roma Larson's head and she responded by writing a letter which contained lies about me, and about the investigation. I think that letter is linked to somewhere on this blog. I certainly did complain to John Schmidt about this. I and my daughter and my friend Janet, met with John Milhiser in October, 2009. John Milhiser was his underling. He is now the head state's attorney! John Milhiser said in front of my two witnesses and a sheriff deputy that I was in a catch 22 when it came to the police saying they weren't spending time and money investigating without the go ahead from the prosecutor and the prosecutor blaming the police for lack of evidence in reports. I am experiencing the same thing now and have been told the same thing. Listen to the recording of Captain Rush on the youtube sidebar.
The system in Springfield is HIGHLY POLITICAL. So that leads me back to Judge Nardulli. When I was sending out the mass e-mails to people in Springfield, openly asking them to contact the prosecutor if they were outraged at what Dean West got away with (the statute of limitations on a DV charge, which is minimal for him trying to kill me), I inadvertently sent the e-mails to judges in the seventh circuit court. I was contacting member of the bar association because I thought surely lawyers would care about what was happening with regard to their prosecutor. I contacted the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, state senators and reps in Illinois. Does that sound to you like I wanted ANYTHING to do with Dean West? Yet just a few weeks ago, he tried to tell a judge I was filing stuff in court to fight for my rights to "be near him!" Ha! I want nothing to do with him. He is repulsive to me. Anyway, I have a letter from Attorney Custodio from the Land of Lincoln Legal Services. He said they couldn't represent me but could give me phone advice. He told me to take the police reports and the police photos (for I have reports and police photos from two incidents) and simply tell the court that I was the victim. When I did just that, early on in the hearing, Judge Nardulli told me point blank that he only cared what his prosecutor said. Here is what I have to say to Judge Nardulli about that: EXPRESS YOUR POLITICAL SUPPORT FOR YOUR ELECTED PROSECUTOR IN THE VOTING BOOTH! I had and have the right as a citizen and a victim of crimes reported to the police to voice my concerns over the behavior of an elected prosecutor and his/her underlings. Anywhere in the nation this is what our Bill of Rights guarantees. There is documentation that what I am saying occurred for there was a docket entry and an order issued, commanding both parties not to contact the judges. Sorry guys it was an honest mistake. It seemed they got that when I got an e-mail from one of the judges and was able to write back and tell him it was an innocent error, however when I saw the behavior of Judge Nardulli, I realized my optimism was not warranted. His denial of my constitutional rights to due process was politically motivated. And I can't believe how crassly they abuse power there and they use the local rules to do it. A friend of mine who lives there doesn't think it will change. Well, first step in solving a problem is correctly identifying it.
Do you think that attorneys automatically understand and appreciate YOUR constitutional rights? Guess again. Yesterday, I had a conversation with Judge Graves, the presiding judge in Sangamon County Courthouse. I was upset over the fact that you cannot ask for a continuance in an OP hearing there without appearing there. You know what she had the nerve to ask me? If I didn't want to be near Dean West, then why did I object to a protection order being against me? I will say that she did preface our conversation by saying she didn't know much about the case. To me, that is CRAZY thinking, especially on the part of a lawyer, but guess what? I have talked to many lawyers over these last few years and it is TYPICAL. We have boys/young men fighting and bleeding in foreign lands, supposedly to fight for our freedom and our rights, as many have in years past and people who are the privilege of going to college and law school don't even understand or respect individual rights. I sit here wondering, and now openly wondering in expression of my first amendment right, why a judge would not realize that the right to bear arms, denied to a person with a domestic violence order of protection against them, is actually a big deal. And, then there is the issue of life and liberty and reputation and good name. Dean West is attempting to thwart and influence any effort I make to make him accountable. Plain and simple. He's a con man and considers himself a diabolical genius. Any opportunity he is given to get something on false pretenses, he attempts to seize. In OHIO the truth is ALWAYS a defense against the accusation of Libel. And I am telling the truth. I will be working over the next days to submit documents in support of what I am saying, and documents there are. This man actually created a South Dakota Foundation with his Illinois wife when there was a stalking restraining order against him in that state! Poor Illinois non-wife. For he was married when he married her, and me, and her again, to the woman he had married in Alaska. I subpoenaed her, the present wife, but she didn't get the subpoena until the day of the hearing because of a clerk mix-up on the subpoenas.
I have police reports and court records from different parts of the country. This man has gotten away with hurting people over and over. He still gets away with it, and because a judge abused his power, and my rights under the Bill of Rights, for what I believe were politically motivated reasons (when I showed him the 19 pictures the police took of my injuries, he did not allow them in the record, he handed them back to me) to show support for HIS states attorney (rah rah team) he crossed the line. Any good citizen would be outraged at their constitutional rights being violated, and I AM a good citizen. I am a healer, not a hurter. I am a lover, not a fighter. And this whole thing is debilitating me. Read the petition for recusal linked to in the last blog entry. Judge Graves actually said to me that Nardulli and Braud were two very competent judges. I can't speak to other cases before them, really, for I have little knowledge of that, but I can ask by what independent measure is she rendering that judgment on their quality, for there is not automatic recording of proceedings there as there is across Ohio and in other states across this nation. I really have to wonder, and I have the right to wonder and express concern over a people who tolerate this, as if the idea of attempting to guard against the abuse of power by recording all proceedings is a foreign concept. When I entered this situation, and went to defend, and the judge abused my rights, I thought there was a transcript. Ha! I was then afraid to criticize the judge, until he pulled the shenanigans he did on October 1 2009, in front of witnesses. I boldy filed a petition for recusal, but when I got sick, and provided documentation for that, my petition was dismissed because I didn't show up to ask for the continuance. I had no idea that was the case. You get various answers from the clerks. For instance, I didn't even know you could ask for a court reporter for a long time. And I was not informed that I could be asked to pay for it myself, at the whim of a judge. I have mentioned in other blog posts the HOURS of wav files I have proving this man is a psycho, but have been told they can't be used because of Illinois two party consent laws. Why is that law not changed yet? I am believing to think there is something wrong with the water in Illinois, that influences their citizens to do nothing about these things. Court is big business in Sangamon County.
The Bill of Rights: A TranscriptionThe Preamble to The Bill of Rights
Congress of the United States
begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.
ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.
Note: The following text is a transcription of the first ten amendments to the Constitution in their original form. These amendments were ratified December 15, 1791, and form what is known as the "Bill of Rights."
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 Foundationand 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 feet 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 charged with DV and prior to that was on probation for resisting a peace officer. I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and there is a felony warrant out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota right now also for a sixth degree felony, violation of a stalking restraining order. 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.).
