COME TO COURT TO SHOW THEM SHE HAS SUPPORT Support Shelton Next court date – 8/1/14 2600 S California Chgo rm 506 10 am
NOTE: I have post-traumatic-stress disorder because I was attacked by officers
NOTE: All these false arrests and malicious prosecutions (of which I have already won >25 cases representing myself – in court termed as “pro se”) – are in retaliation for my complaints against corruption in the courts, Cook County and Illinois government and the Cook County Sheriff’s Department, for which I have about a dozen blogs where I post scanned in evidence of felony conduct of police, judges, and officials like IL Attorney General Lisa Madigan – this is one of several blogs you can find by clicking on links under “blogroll” at the right side of this page – for example: Pro Se Chicago , Cook County Sheriff Deputies , Chicago FBI, or Illinois Corruption.)
I was recently released on bail, after one year in jail on an unconstitutional and illegal (IL Constitution Art. I Section 9 forbids no bail orders unless charged with murder or too dangerous to release – 8th Amendment to US Constitution forbids excessive bail) “no bail” order by corrupt Judge Diane Cannon, for a
fraudulent charge of felony aggravated battery to an officer – for allegedly knowingly “touching an officer’s ear and pulling her hair”.
I was only released because Judge Cannon is apparently ill and was replaced by Judge Reddick, who recognized that no bail was illegal and set a bail, though also illegal in amount and excessive. Possible sentence is 3-14 years as they can ask for enhanced sentencing because I was wrongfully previously convicted of “bumping an officer with my wheelchair” and sentenced to two years in prison!
(The officer, Anthony Salemi, is now retired and living in Des Plaines, managing/owing condos was what I’ve heard – attacked me, falsified records, lied on the stand in an act of perjury after attacking in my cell four weeks after I won a suit for injunction against the Sheriff for not having a compliance plan with the Americans with Disabilities Act for courthouses. He has NEVER been arrested and the FBI has refused to investigate. The appeal of conviction was denied by a biased Appellate Court led by Judge Levin – who wrote the most abusive, defamatory, and inadequate opinion, essentially ignoring my appeal – available on scribd.com along with a copy of my appeal)
This new incident is alleged to have occurred during a court hearing on Nov. 27, 2012 – where I was wrongfully on trial for “bumping an officer with my walker”!
I have post-traumatic-stress disorder because I was attacked by officers numerous times and numerous times taken to emergency rooms where doctors refused to listen to me because I was in custody on bogus charges. ER doctors have extreme bias against anyone in custody and PRESUME you are nuts, addicted, violent, and nothing you say can be trusted. They PRESUME the officers word is gold.
Therefore, officers abuse this and make up lies about detainees and always tell the doctors I am crazy and must be drugged so the doctors drug me without checking my medical history or talking to me. This is a crime for doctors to violate the IL Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. Most anti-psychotic drugs and many sedative drugs cause me complications due to my many physical disabilities and idiosyncratic reactions to drugs.
As a result the ER doctors with officers tying me down in four point restraints or holding me, ILLEGALLY have drugged me several times in ERs without any need to and have once caused me to go into respiratory arrest requiring resuscitation. Other symptoms that are so frightening as to cause flashbacks also have occurred. Officers have also beaten me viciously behind closed doors even in police rooms at hospitals because I was complaining. One officer with approval of his supervising officer wearing a had with gold checkers cuffed my hands and ankles to a desk in the old Michael Reese hospital police room and got on his knee and pummeled me with his fists.
As a result, when police are aggressive against me, which is outrageous as I am a disabled individual who uses a walker, as well as a non-violent pacifist who never learned to fight and just cowers or waves my hands around my head trying to fend off blows, and when they tie me or cuff me down in 4-pt restraints for any reason, I go into flashbacks and think I am being tied down, injected, the doctors are refusing to listen to me, Salemi is choking me (as he did in 2005) and that I will die. I appear wide-eyed with fear, frantic, cower or wave my hands around my head, grab at things as I always feel I am loosing my balance – due to medical disabilities, and may even hide under a table or in a corner. I am not responsive to the environment as the environment becomes part of my flashback and I am confused. The only thing that should be done is to back-off and leave me alone until it passes as Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy said in a letter you can read in following link.
The Sheriff Staff in the courtroom had an agreement with the Cook County Court Disability Coordinator, Milissa Pacelli, that they would NOT use the information about triggers to my flashbacks to induce a flashback and if one occurred they would follow Dr. Galatzer-Levy’s advice and back-off. They did not do this!!! They instead induced a flashback and falsely charged me with felony battery, knowing that battery requires intent, and that there was no way I had intent to harm anyone (no one was harmed – the officer said she suffered pain or discomfort) or to in an “insulting and provoking manner” touch anyone, which is required for a conviction for battery, which is automatically upgraded to felony battery if the “victim” is an officer! This charge is grossly overused and cases are fabricated in this manner.
We need legislation about this and the FBI and US Attorney to investigate these type of cases, which are common. Other charges that are abused by police and used to “stack” charges are resisting arrest – even if you’re spastic due to medical issues and twitch or shake like I do they use this for a charge of resisting arrest, trespass, and disorderly conduct.
For more details about this story and for the letter and documents sent to the Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court see: http://www.scribd.com/doc/113941439/Illinois-Supreme-Court-Appeal-Disability-Accommodation-Refused-Judge-Peggy-Chiampas-abuses-disabled-defendant This judge should be impeachedas she is committing treason according to the definition of treason by the United States Supreme Court.
Dishonorable Judge Peggy Chiampas should be removed from the bench. I have documented in court pleadings before the United States Supreme Court (see links below) how she has refused to transfer a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus to the Chief Judge for a Hearing. The right to petition for writ of habeas corpus is the highest right a citizen of the U.S.A. has under the U.S. Constitution (Suspension Clause), so she is violating her oath of office. The petition states and with evidence and quoting law proves that the charges against me (Dr. Linda Shelton) in six pending misdemeanor cases are legally insufficient and therefore Void (a nullity which removes the court’s jurisdiction). It is treason for a judge to hold someone for trial on legally insufficient complainst which don’t state a legal charge. Therefore, she is violating her oath of office and committing treason. This is treason as it is knowing and willing, not a mere error by an ignorant judge.
Judge Chiampas has also refused to allow me to attend to my medical needs, thus causing me to collapse in the courtroom, unconscious on March 6, 2012. On March 21, 2012, when the air conditioner broke in the courtroom, before she ascended to the bench, while we were waiting, the room became very hot over 90 degrees. I have medical conditions where I cannot tolerate heat and must remove myself from hot environments or I pass out and go into a cardiac arrest. I told the deputies and the public defender that I was feeling ill and going into the air conditioned hall. Judge Chiampas when she came in the room then ordered my arrest in the hall and refused to allow me to tell her what happened. I was jailed for a week illegally in violation of the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act. This is another violation of her oath of office that requires she be charged with treason and removed as a judge. So far the Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board has been reviewing my complaints about her since July 2012 and have done nothing.
Judge Chiampas is REFUSING to accommodate my disabilities and trial is scheduled for November 26, 2012 in room 102 at 10AM at 2600 S California in Chicago, courtroom 102. In retaliation for me not being in the courtroom on March 21, 2012, Judge Chiampas illegally dismissed my pending motions for Substitution of Judge For Cause, for dismissal of charges due to violation of speedy trial Illimois laws and Constitutional speedy trial rights under the Sixth Amndment, for compulsory process to force Court Clerk Dorothy Brown to reveal the addresses (last known and forwarding) of my witnesses, her attorney Phillippa Akem (who has since resigned) and retired Court Clerk Joe Smolensky, as well as REFUSED to transfer my petitions for writs of habeas corpus on pending fraudulent cases to the Presiding First Municipal District Judge E. Kenneth Wright Jr. .
Therefore, I am expected to go to court and defend myself againt legally insufficient criminal misdemeanor complainst that fail to state a charge, beyond the deadline for trying me (speedy trial has been violated so the charges must be dismissed), with a biased judge who has actively ignored the constitution, the law, and the Americans with Disabilities Act requirement that she must accommodate disabilities.
In addition she has illegally granted the State’s motion to admit into evidence “proof of other bad acts” (pending criminal misdemeanor charges on several other cases that are also legally insuficiient and don’t state a charge, where I am innocent and being retaliated against by corrupt Sheriff staff for filing civil rights cases against their buddies - thus trying me on these cases without a trial, and testimony on a case that was dismissed from a detention aide, Shell, who attacked me in the lock-up, falsified her records and claimed I attacked her). The following are photographs of bruises I received after being viciously beaten by Detention Aide Shell and her colleagues in the female lock-up on March 4, 2006.

Attack on me by correctional officers Levy, Ruiz, and Connolly who held me down and kicked me with their boots. The following is the civil rights suit that was dismissed because I missed the statute of limitations by one day and the photographs of the bruises.
They should be arrested for battery of a handicapped person. Sheriff Sheahan and Dart are ignoring the evidence. I have lots of evidence of perjury by the deputies that is being ignored and for excessive force, medical neglect, medical abuse, and battery by Sheriff and deputies. They have killed people and the FBI has not arrested these correctional officers or imprisoned them! This is no different than what the Gestapo did in WWII. We live in a lawless police state in Chicago. Read former IL Senator Roger Keat’s new book “Chicago Confidential” for more details about corruption.

Better Business Bureau Complaint against Peck Bloom, LLC law firm and Judge James Riley for corruption
Beware of Peck Bloom, LLC law firm regarding probate matters and trusts. They will laugh all the way to the bank after they set you up, encourage dissent among beneficiaries after you die, and then eat your estate up in their fees while the beneficiaries get nothing but their bills. Slimebags of the upteenth degree! Tell me your stories, gather your evidence and let us take them down with criminal charges and attacks against their law licenses! Send emails to email@example.com.
NOTE THAT SINCE THE BBB REFUSES TO LOOK AT THE COMPLAINT UNTIL IT IS ADJUDICATED, I HAVE COMPLAINED TO THE ILLINOIS ATTORNEY REGISTRATION AND DISCIPLINARY COMMISSION AND THE COMPLAINT IS STILL PENDING.
I have made a complaint against attorneys Kerry Peck (photo at right with glasses) , Timothy Ritchey (photo at right – younger guy no glasses) and Katie McClanahan, of Peck Bloom, LLC to the Better Business Buruea for bribing Judge James Riley in the Cook County Probate Division by contributing to his election campaign for the Illinois Supreme Court, which he just lost, in order to make Judge Riley illegally, immorally, criminally, and in violation of his oath of office, ignore two transcripts from 2007 from my sister Alice Dale and father, the late Allan Levente Lorincz, M.D.. They first contributed $10,000 to the election of Judge Theis for Supreme Court who won. Then at the time of an inportant hearing in this case they contributed $3150 to her opponent Judge Riley the judge on my probate case to fix the case and ignore the forgery of a trust and fraud upon the court (false statements proven by transcripts from 2007).
NOTE THE PICTURES OF THESE TWO SLEEZY SCUMBAG ATTORNEYS WHO SUB JORNED PERJURY, COERCED THEIR MENTALLY ILL CLIENT TO LIE, MADE FRAUDLENT AND FALSE STATEMENTS TO THE JUDGE AND BRIBED JUDGE JAMES RILEY! Note young Ritchey’s permanent smirk!
Two partners in their law firm, Peck Bloom, LLC, Cameron “Camie” DeGuerre and Peter Coolas also paid into the Judge Riley Election Campaign Committee. Note pictures of the two partners who likely also were trying to assist their partners in fraudulently influencing Judge Riley. The Chicago Council of Lawyers determined that Judge Riley was “not qualified” to be an Illinois Supreme Court judge. Why would they contribute to the campaign of an arrogant, incompetent, judge who accepts bribes?
I am also pleading with the public to write the U.S. Attorney General and ask him to investigate this, as it does not only affect me. This law firm is known for stretching out cases by making false statements and bribing judges, by encouraging arguments among beneficiaries thus increasing their fees, and then getting unreasonable sanctions imposed on beneficiaries by corrupt judges like Riley in order to enrich themselves. We must stop them. Ask your attorneys to make complaints too.
Many attorneys know about corruption but are failing to make complaints to the ARDC (attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission) or JIB (judicial inquiry board) because they are afraid if they complain that they will get adverse rulings from judges (which is true – if you don’t condone corruption as an attorney in Chicago, you won’t have any business). However, there is an Illinois Supreme Court decision (Himmel) that says that if an attorney fails to report corruption that he is aware of, then he is guilty of condoning it.

Alice and my father both had testified in another case several years ago that my sister is mentally ill and cannot take care of family affairs outside her immediate family, that I moved in with my father in 2006 as he was deteriorating from Parkinson’s disease after my mother died 10 years prior, and I had been eating dinner with him daily for those 10 years and helping him with his house and personal affairs. I will post the transcripts shortly.
The bribe was used to cause Judge Riley to dismiss my challenged to this forged and incomplete trust and custodial claim without a trial based solely on hearsay and these false statements.
The bribe was also used to influence Judge Riley to ignore the fact that my attorney, Robert Held from Harrison & Held, LLP (at outstanding and honest law firm that is reeling from this corruption and has made a complaint to the Attorney Regulatory and Disciplinary Commission [ARDC]), which I will post shortly, gave them discovery - while illegally converting this hearing on the motion to dismiss for discovery violation into a de facto trial on the issue of the trust challenge (denying notice and due process which are constitutional rights), ruling instead that Held had failed to provide them discovery and therefore Judge Riley illegally dismissed my statutory custodial claim and trust challenge and ruled that I had not cared for my father, had not loved him, had verbally abused him and exploited him, and that my claims were frivolous. The transcript where they lied will be posted shortly.
Judge Riley then to really destroy me ordered me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees (so far $245,000) and ordered that they may evict me, a disabled person whose inheritance was supposed to go into a special needs trust and the house was supposed to go into the special needs trust. I will post the trust document (forged and valid) and the orders shortly.
I have an appeal pending in the Illinois Appellate Court which I will post on line.
You can read my motion for stay of Riley’s orders to the Illinois Appellate Court here that they immorally and illegally denied. I am filing papers with higher courts.

Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, & Katie McClanahan represent my mentally ill sister, & they are manipulating her into lying to the probate court that my gravely ill father who died in 9/7/10 changed his trust on his deathbed & removed me as trustee & made her the trustee. The trust was not signed by my father in both required spots – HIPAA release & signature.
The signature was forged & I have proof because his signature was normal & not a smudge just a few weeks prior. They did this to take over the trust & steal my father’s estate with attorney fees.
They also bribed the judge with contributions to his election committee within weeks of him making an adverse decision against me dismissing my trust challenge & statutory custodial claim without a hearing based on fraudulently presented “discovery violations.” They claim my attorney did not give them discovery which is a lie & both my attorney & myself have complaints pending with the ARDC & JIB.
The bribery made the judge ignore 2007 transcripts in a court case where my now deceased father and sister (falsely purported trustee) both testified that I lovingly cared for my father, moving in with him in 2006, after eating dinner with him after my mother’s death for the previous 14 yrs, took care of him and his property & estate, & even took care of my sister’s family’s finances, & she testified that she is mentally ill & her doctor told her to stay away from problems & family affairs as she can’t handle them.
The judge ignored these transcripts and faked in open court that he believed the lies from Peck Bloom attorneys that I didn’t live with my father, didn’t love him, financially exploited him & physically abused the aides, as well as verbally abused him. This is completely false & we have many affidavits as well as aforementioned transcripts to prove this but we never had a trial as the judge after he was bribed (the election commission web site proves these attorneys contributed to his election campaign for justice of the IL Supreme Court at the very time he was making these rulings) made this immoral & illegal ruling dismissing my trust challenge & claim & then ordering me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees saying my claims were “frivolous”.
My father had made a special needs trust for me as a disabled person to be funded with a 1/4 of the estate at his death. He had bought a house for my brother who has bipolar disorder & paranoid delusions about me & had verbally abused our father & sexually abused me as a teenage. He had contributed $300,000 to my sister’s house who has severe borderline personality disorder, has tried to kill herself many times & has squandered all the money given to her.
That is why she wants to steal my inheritance. My father said in all the trust documents for the past 20 years that I was to inherit his home which was to be put into my special needs trust. The Trustee was supposed to pay the mortgage on this home & a condo as the first act after his death & sell the condo. His estate was worth about 2 million, but my sister has squandered most of it & the rest is going to these unscrupulous attorneys. Now they are trying to evict me.
They also ransacked my home & stole everything of value including my passport & wallet & house keys during the last month of my father’s life while I was in hospital.
I am still trying to fight this with an appeal in court, but am losing because they refuse to have a hearing & the judges are corrupt & against me because I maintain a web site exposing their corruption & felony conduct & I am trying to have the FBI arrest them by giving them evidence.
So based on lies and fraud, my father was abused & died in a hospital instead of at home with me at his side, & they have stolen my inheritance & home & property & are putting me on the street. This is political as I have evidence against the IL Attorney General & several judges [of corruption and felony crimes and they have to shut me up. They have to shut me up.]
Your Desired Resolution:
I want the attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission (ARDC) and judicial inquiry board (JIB) as well as the policing authorities to act and arrest these attorneys and the judge and a new judge to remove my sister as trustee and restore my access to the estate funds and property so that I can divide it up, take care of everyone the way my father had instructed me to do and make sure no one else is abused and exploited by this corrupt law firm (Peck is politically powerful and was the president of the Chicago Association) and this corrupt judge. Thank God he lost the election.
This needs to be exposed in the press. I don’t think you will get involved because it is political and your Chicago/Illinois office will get repercussions if you get involved, but I want to inform you about this.
I probably will get clobbered because corruption is now the norm in this country and especially in Illinois. So all I can do is fight in the courts knowing that the IL Appellate Court will ignore law and fact and back these corrupt attorneys and judges and that the IL Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court will not take the case as they don’t have to and it is not important enough for them.
This will just prove that American Justice is a Myth. I suppose I will have to go to a women’s shelter in Canada as a dual Canadian American citizen and then I may be able to get health care.

I have already informed the ARDC of this law firms fraud upon the court and I am forwarding this data on bribery too.
My reply to the BBB on 11/9/12 :
It also reveals that attorneys Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, Peter Coorlas, and Cameron DeGuerre of Peck Bloom LLC each contributed to the Committee to Elect Judge Riley. This was a week before Judge Riley upon the motions of these two attorneys ignored forgery and fraud in my probate case concerning the estate of my late father and made an adverse ruling against me as a disabled person, illegally dismissing my trust challenge due to this forgery and fraud, and ordered that my entire inheritance of $250,000 and a house be forfeited to pay their fraudulent attorney fees.
They are representing my crazy sister Alice Dale. See my motion to the Illinois Appellate Court for a stay of court orders which was illegally denied. Read my motion for stay that gives proof of the forgery and fraud. They forged my father’s name on an amended will and trust on his deathbed and then they lied in court that I did not live with my father, take care of him for three years, and they also made the dispicable lie that I didn’t love him and extorted and abused him.
This is how Illinois Corruption works. They steal estates of the disabled, elderly, and mentally ill in a systemic fashion, laughing all the way. You should see how Judge Riley and attorneys Ritchey and Peck wink at each other and smile in court. It makes me puke. When is the FBI going to arrest them?
In order to discover the bribery and corruption all you have to do is find out the names of the judge’s and lawyer’s associates, wives, children and relatives and the names of the litigants and then cross-reference them with the contributions made to elect judges and officials. Most of the bribery is laundered through election campaign committees.
Money is also laundered through real estate transactions in other states where the properties are bought for ridiculously low amounts with case – for example the dozen or so properties bought by IL Attorney General Lisa Madigan in Maricopa County Arizona for $1. Then cash changes hands secretly. The FBI could follow the bank deposits if they wanted to.
Then money is also laundered through phoney foundations such as Save-A-Life-Foundation where Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan gave this foundation $50,000 out of the Illinois Attorney General’s budget (your tax dollars) and it was never accounted for, yet no charges have been brought against its CEO. Some of this is explained in this petition for writ of mandamus presently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dr Shelton asks U.S. Supreme Court to appoint special master to remove corruption in Circuit Court of Cook County
On this site and in their pleadings before the Circuit Court of Cook County, the Illinois Appellate Court and the Illinois Supreme Court, Dr. Linda Shelton, Dr. Sheila Mannix, David Bambic, Milijana Vlastelica, Frank Epstein, Sandra Padron, Karyn Mehringer, Mic Gerhardt, Maisha Hamilton, Vernon Glass, Naomi Jennings, Annabel Melongo, Davy Cady and many others have shown that the Circuit Court of Cook County has allowed its judges to disregard constitutional rights such as due process, speedy trial, the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right to receive notice and discovery before trial, the right to have enforced state laws as to trial and court procedure, and the right to confront witnesses against them and not have court decision made based on hearsay.
The extreme lawlessness that Shelton has documented on this site is now before the United States Supreme Court in three Petitions for Certiorari and for Mandamus and five more are in preparation. You can read them in the links at the end of this post.
In the pleadings that follow, David Bambic and Linda Shelton are asking the United States Supreme Court to review this extreme lawlessness that has caused wrongful decisions in their cases, but that also is so pervasive that hundreds if not thousands of divorce cases, orders of protection cases, criminal cases, probate cases, and child custody cases must be overturned or retried.
The state of anarchy in Cook County due to judicial ignorance, corruption, misconduct, arrogance, and maliciousness is so extreme, so harmful to children, families, the elderly, and innocent accused of crimes particularly whistle blowers who are being retaliated against, as documented in these three U.S. Supreme Court proceedings that Shelton has requested the U.S. Supreme Court to appoint a special master to review the policies and procedures of the Circuit Court of Cook County and to institute a judicial education and supervision program so that the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right for a speedy trial, the right to compulsory process, the right to notice and discovery before trial, as well as other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights including due process or following the statutes and rules of the state and the federal codes and rules are preserved and no longer violated pervasively.
Shelton now calls for Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinkle to fire Chief Judge Timothy Evans for failure to ensure that the judges in the Circuit Court of Cook County follow the Constitutions of the United States and Illinois and the laws of the State of Illinois and these United States.
We can no longer allow this pervasive, malignant lawlessness to run our courts in Cook County and be steered by the corrupt government officials and police officials that have been doing so.
U.S. Supreme Court Petition for Writ of Mandamust concerning refusal to hear petition for writ of habeas corpus and false arrest and conviction for filing a next-friend petition for writ of habeas corpus, as well as summary (no trial) conviction and sentence of 16 mo in jail for criminal contempt for filing the habeas petition as a non-attorney (the judge declared this illegal) despite the fact that Illinois law allows it: 735 ILCS 5/10 et seq.
Cook County Circuit Court Judge Chiampas suspends 6th Amendment right to compulsory process and speedy trial, violates Illinois Statutes for Substitution of Judge – in acts of treason
Shelton has filed an United States Supreme Court Petition for Writ of Mandamus against Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas for ordering denial of compulsory process, denial of speedy trial, and violation of statutes for substitution of judge for cause.
Judge Chiampas even issued a warrant on a case that Shelton won a year ago and set bail for this misdemeanor of $25,000. She also arrested Shelton for going out into the hall when she was ill, violating the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, she issued two bails on one case and has issued excessive bails. Judge Chiampas is not fit to be a judge as she has no understanding of basic constitutional rights.
Judge Chiampas is incompetent, narcissitic, rude, and dangerous to the public. She needs to be immediately removed from the bench and subjected to mental health evaluation. Presiding Judge Wright and Chief Judge Evans should be held accountable for allowing this nut case to remain on the bench. She is only concerned about railroading people through her court in a rush to judgment so she can clear the calender that has been loaded up with so many cases due to misconduct of other judges. The chief and presiding judges have placed her on this call to clear the calender and have paid no attention to her incompetence and misconduct. Her courtroom is nothing more than a Salem Witch trial. Please help get this nutcase off the bench.
Judge Peggy Chiampas is so ignorant of the law that she doesn’t understand that she cannot strike a motion for substitution of judge for cause. She had the gall to tell Shelton that she was considering allowing her to refile the motion. Shelton on June 13th, 2012, told Chiampas in court that she had not jurisdiction, that she lost it when Shelton had her courier file a Motion for SOJ Chiampas for Cause. Shelton said she didn’t need her leave to refile it as Chiampas’ order to strike it was VOID ab initio according to higher court case law. Chiampas then said she was granting leave to file. Shelton said she no longer recognized Chiampas as the judge on the case and every order she makes is VOID and without jurisdiction.
See Shelton’s Petition for Writ of Mandamus to U.S. Supreme Court here and her petitions for writ of habeas corpus here (will be scanned in shortly).
See Shelton’s 1st Supplement to Petition for Writ of Mandamus to U.S. Supreme Court here.
See Shelton’s Motion for Stay of Cook County Court Proceedings in 09 MC1 223774 pending U.S. Supreme Court rulings here.
Shelton made a motion for Substitution of Judge for Cause, because of Judge Chiampas history of lawlessness, and it was filed by a courier on May 29, 2012. Judge Chiampas said it was stricken on May 29, 2012, a day Shelton did not come to court because Chiampas refused to transfer the case to the presiding judge and had ordered Shelton to come to court on May 29, 2012 and submit to a trial that day, but Chiampas had ordered that Shelton could not have witnesses (Chiampas had stricken motions to compel Clerk Brown and Sheriff Dart to produce evidence – names of witnesses. Both Brown and Dart are deliberately ignoring the subpoenas, which is a criminal act). On June 13, 2012 Shelton was in court, in custody after she had surrendered at the FBI buildling on June 8, 2012. Shelton had taken this extra time and not shown up in court so she could write a Petiton for Writ of mandamus to the US Supreme Court and file Petitions for Writs of Habeas Corpus to have these bogus cases dismissed and to order a fair trial – force the judge to be replaced and force compliance with subpoenas as well as force the court to follow speedy trial laws and the constitution concerning compulsory process of witnesses and other laws.
The jail staff have purposely and maliciously in the past when Shelton was illegally incarcerated prevented her from having paper and pen and access to the courts, so that she had to make sure any motions were written before she surrendered. These legal filings by Shelton apparently were noticed by Presiding Muncipal 1 Judge Wright who ordered that Judge Harmeling would hear the SOJ for Cause Motion, despite Judge Chiampas striking it. Judge Chiampas on June 13, 2010 also ordered the states attorney to meet with Shelton who showed them that two of the case numbers were the same case and Clerk Brown had made one of her numerous clerical errors – so the state dropped one of the cases. Then Chiampas ordered Dart and Brown to have their lawyers in court on June 20 and ordered them on June 20th to comply with the subpoenas. This is AFTER Judge Chiampas had stricken with prejudice (can’t be reinstated), on March 21, 2012, Shelton’s motion to compel Dart and Brown to comply with subpoenas. Chiampas must have read the US Supreme Court Motion which asked the court to compel Chiampas to follow the Bill of Rights and compel witnesses to comply with subpoenas.
On June 28, 2012 Shelton informed the court through an attorney that she could not appear to hear Judge Harmeling’s ruling on the Motion for SOJ Chiapas for cause that Shelton argued on June 20, 2012, because Shelton was ill and due to her multiple chronic illnesses and the extreme heat index, as well as a stomach flu with fever, she could not appear in court. The next hearing was postponed until July 2, 2012 as a result.
Shelton, on June 13, 2012 told Judge Chiampas that it was illegal for her to strike the motion for Substitution of Judge for Cause. Judge Chiampas said that presiding Judge Wright had ordered another Judge to hear the motion and that she was allowing the motion to be re-instated (she had no power to strike or re-instate as the only power she has after a motion for substitution of Judge is written and filed is to transfer the case to the presiding Judge). Judge Harmeling was assigned to hear the motion and he appeared in court on June 20, 2012.
Judge Harmeling heard the Motion for SOJ for Cause against Judge Chiampas on July 2, 2012 and totally igored the higher court precedent on the topic that Shelton had written in her Motion for SOJ for Cause (see it here), as well as the law, fraudulently stating that Shelton was just angry at Judge Chiampas’ rulings and that was not a reason to substitute judge. He then denied the motion and transferred it back to Judge Chiampas. Judge Chiampas then ordered a status hearing on August 3, 2012 to check on whether discovery was complete from the subpoenas issued to Clerk Dorothy Brown and Sheriff Dart.
Shelton on July 2, 2012 filed several motions including a motion 2nd Motion for SOJ for cause

Thank you for your time!
Annabelle Melongo is an honest person and Information Technology (computer) expert, who discovered that the foundation that she was working for committed fraud on the federal and several state government and obtained millions of dollars fraudulently. Numerous prominent politicians due to lack of due diligence were involved in assisting this foundation in fraudulently obtaining money.
Melongo has been in jail for a year awaiting trial without probable cause and with an outrageously excessive bail charged with remote computer tampering of this fraudulent corporation (yet the States Attorney has evidence she did not remotely access their computer!) and illegally recording a conversation she had on the phone with a Cook County court reporter without the court reporter’s permission – “eavesdropping” (bail $300,000 reduced from $500,000 and $30,000) – yet she is indigent, has no prior record, and the States Atty and IL AG General are FULLY AWARE that all charges against her are fraudulent!
Her petition for writ of habeas corpus has been ignored and the judges are ACTIVELY refusing even to hear it! – in clear violation of the Constitution’s suspension clause and the laws of the State of Illinois. Illinois law dictates that if a judge refuses to hear an habeas petition he can be fined $1000 and the fine paid to the unlawfully held defendent (735 ILCS 5/10-106). The suspension clause in the U.S. Constitution allows a person or his/her friend to petition the court to free a defendant from an unlawful incarceration. The Illinois Habeas statute does the same thing. (735 ILCS 5/10)
The most important Human Right in the Constitution is the right to petition for a writ of habeas corpus, written in U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 9 (the suspension clause – which says this right can not be suspended except in the time of war) [ Zehariah Chagee, Jr., The Most Important Human Right in the Constitution, 32 B.U. L. Rev. 143, 143, (1952)] The ONLY time the United States Supreme Court has found a violation of the suspension clause was in their decision in 2008 regarding Boumedine v Bush.

SIGN THE PETITION HERE to ask the U.S. Attorney to investigate the Melongo case.
The Cook Co State’s Attorney’s office is fully informed that a cop’s fraud and perjury obtained a void indictment yet they are still pursuing the case. They are fully informed that the alleged victim of this fraudulent charge of computer tampering has defrauded the U.S. government out of millions of dollars.

A concerned friend (me, Linda Shelton) filed a next-friend petition for habeas corpus before the Circuit Court of Cook County per 735 ILCS Article X, the state habeas statute that lets a non-attorney file this petition. I had done this before for another person who was illegally jailed without probable cause and the judge appointed an attorney who gained her release in 2009.
Judge McHale, who was sitting in for the presiding Cook Co IL criminal court Judge Biebel, then illegally and unconstitutionally jailed the petitioner (me) for contempt claiming it was illegal for a non-attorney to file an habeas petition on behalf of another – even though IL statutes specifically allow this.
This is what happened in detail:
Shelton alleges Judge McHale (substituting for Judge Bieble – presiding judge of the Cook Co Criminal Court) illegally and in an act of treason in retaliation for Shelton’s whistle blowing about judicial corruption in the Circuit Court of Cook County summarily convicted her of 3 “cases” which should have been 3 “counts” of criminal contempt for the legal act of filing a next-friend habeas petition as a non-attorney on behalf of Annabelle Melongo, a dual Haitian/Cameroonean citizen with language difficulties and who was confusing English and Roman law, and then telling the judge that his act of ruling that a non-attorney filing was “illegal” was a violation of his oath of office to follow the law as well as a criminal act.
Shelton alleges Judge McHale’s consecutive summary sentences of 4, 6, and 6 months (total of 16 mo) in CCDOC with no good time jail credits, were in:
A) violation of IL Substitution of Judge (“SOJ”) as Right Statutes, 735 ILCS 5/2-1001 which make all orders given after denial of this SOJ as a right void (a nullity or invalid);
B) in violation of Habeas Statutes, 735 ILCS Art 10 which allow a person to file an habeas petition on “behalf of another”;
C) in violation of Good Time Jail Allowance statute, 730 ILCS 130, which give jurisdiction for such credits to the county sheriff and not the judge;
D) in violation of IL sentencing statutes requiring concurrent sentences for the same conduct or acts occurring during the same state of mind, 720 ILCS 5/3-3; and
E) in violation of the U.S. Supreme Court holdings which:
1) require jury trial if sentences exceed 6 mos aggregate for contempt,
2) forbid sentencing for more than one count of contempt during one trial or case,
3) require jury trial if contempt sentence is summarily imposed on a day other than the day in which the contemptuous act occurred, and
4) specifically state it is legal for a non-attorney to file a next-friend petition for writ of habeas corpus, U.S. ex rel. Toth v. Quarles, 350 U.S. 11, 76 S.Ct 1 (1955) and Boumediene v. Bush, 553 U.S. 723, 128 S.Ct 2229 (2008).
These sentences by Judge McHale were acts of felony treason punishable by a sentence of 20 yrs to life per previous holdings and/or dicta of the United States Supreme Court including:
1) that the judges in U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200 (1980) affirmed the statement of Chief Justice Marshall in Cohens v. Virginia, 6 Wheat. 264, 5 L.Ed 257 (1821) that it is “treason on the constitution” when a judge “usurps [the jurisdiction] that which is not given”; and
2) that it is a “war on the constitution” when a judge violates his oath of office to support it [including supporting statutes of a state = due process], Cooper v. Aaron,358 U.S. 1, 78 S.Ct. 1401(1958).
Judge McHale’s knowing violation of the statutes concerning SOJ as a right, good conduct jail credits; violation of case law concerning right to trial if sentence is > 6 mo, right to trial if sentence for contempt is given out on day other than day of contempt incidence, ban on more than one count of contempt during one case or trial; and violation of U.S. Supreme Court holdings/dicta in U.S. ex rel. Toth v. Quarles, 350 U.S. 11, 76 S.Ct 1 (1955) and Boumediene v. Bush, 553 U.S. 723, 128 S.Ct 2229 (2008) that a non-attorney may file a next-friend habeas petition prove Judge McHale illegally found Linda Shelton in contempt three times, illegally sentenced her, and knowingly did this in an act of treason violating Shelton’s constitutional rights to be free of arrest and imprisonment without due process and in violation of law.
In addition, Annabelle Melongo’s petition for writ of habeas corpus has been IGNORED by Judges McHale, Brosnahan, Wadas, Kazmierski, and Judge Biebel and she is still in jail a year later! All these judges have therefore committed treason.
This is a grotesque and extremely serious violation of the Constitution of the United States – suspension clause (Article I, section 9) which states that the Great Writ of Habeas Corpus may not be suspended except in time of war.
EVEN PRISONERS AT GUANTANEMO BAY ARE ALLOWED TO FILE HABEAS PETITIONS!
Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please sign the petition, write letters, and contact the press! Send Annabelle Melongo letters of encouragement at:

Corrupt Judges Jorge Alonso & Kathleen Pantle cause death of innocent defendant Psychological Counselor Vernon Glass. Read about it here.
Update: Charges against Shelton on both the trespass charge and the battery of Ofc. Stanislavski have been dropped (nolle prosequi) by the State’s Attorney. Apparently they don’t want it to become public record that the judges are incompetent, arrogant, idiots and malicious who violate the law with impunity, or that the officers, as a matter of practice and custom, violated the law and the arrests were bogus, unlawful, unconstitutional and malicious in nature.
On October 21, Dr. Shelton went for a first appearance on an unlawful arrest for trespass to real property (720 ILCS 5/21-3(a)(2)) before Judge Colleen A. Hyland. Dr. Shelton stated to Judge Hyland she would represent herself and had successfully done so more than 24 times, including winning mandamus and injunctive actions against the State of Illinois (represented by AG Lisa Madigan) and against the Cook County Sheriff (represented by SA Richard Divine). Dr. Shelton said she was representing herself in federal court in civil rights suits against several judges, police, and Lisa Madigan, and was quite knowledgeable about the law. Judge Hyland appeared perturbed about this statement, but stated she would let Dr. Shelton represent herself. Judges often are irrational concerning pro se defendants, assuming they are nuts (despite the fact they win cases as often as attorneys) having an unconscious bias that colors their actions with these defendants, called confirmatory bias.
Dr. Shelton stated she would demand a jury trial. Then Judge Hyland proceeded to appropriately as required by law admonish Dr. Shelton that pro se counsel were expected to know the same things as an attorney and would be held to the standards of an attorney. Judge Hyland then stated to Dr. Shelton that trespass to real property was a class A misdemeanor.
Generally defendants may not talk in court and are represented by an attorney. The attorneys speak up if the judge mis-states a matter of law or fact and generally provide the judge information about details of the law from the statutes.
Courtroom deputies quickly and rudely tell the defendants to shut up if they attempt to ask questions and judges tell the defendants they cannot speak and must let their attorney speak up. They need to be taught to be more polite and less nasty.
However, Dr. Shelton represents herself (pro se). Those representing themselves are “pro se counsel” and have the same right to speak up and be heard in court as an attorney.
Judges and courtroom deputies are used to being nasty to defendants and biased against defendants, who try to ask a question or speak up in court, often have a hard time conducting themselves properly and letting the pro se defendant speak up as is appropriate. Afterall, they represent themselves. The judge or courtroom deputy will often inappropriately tell the pro se defendant to “shut up” or even assault the defendant and grab them, while yelling at them, in order to threaten them into not talking. Courtroom deputies, who are quite ignorant of the law and pro se counsel rights, assume the defendants are guilty and are taught to treat defendants with total disrespect as scumbags to be beaten and verbally abused, despite the Constitution guaranteeing that a person is considered innocent until proven guilty and despite the fact that abuse of a defendant is unconstitutional. Judges have inadequate training concerning pro se counsel and often use knee-jerk and inappropriate, often unconstitutional, statements against pro se counsel rights, to cover-up their ignorance.
Dr. Shelton politely spoke up, as pro se counsel, and told Judge Hyland that trespass to real property is a class B misdemeanor. Judge Hyland in an arrogant, nasty, and inappropriate manner quickly yelled at Dr. Shelton, that she was the judge and what she said was right and it was contempt for Dr. Shelton to speak up and that if she spoke up again she would jail her for contempt.
This is a typical example of judicial misconduct in Cook County courtrooms. Contempt is when someone in court purposely disrupts the courtroom, insults the judge, or becomes violent in the courtroom bringing the proceedings into disrepute. Telling the judge she legally mis-spoke is clearly NOT contempt.
Dr. Shelton politely spoke up and said “Judge please read the statute book.” Judge Hyland then had a temper-tantrum and told the deputies to remove Dr. Shelton from the courtroom, that if Dr. Shelton said another word, she would hold her in contempt, and she would recall the case later.
Dr. Shelton left the courtroom, went to the court library and Xeroxed a copy of the statute that says trespass to real property is a class B misdemeanor.
When the case was recalled, Dr. Shelton immediately held up the paper and stated: “Judge here is a copy of the statute. You were wrong. I was right. It is a class B misdemeanor. You owe me an apology for your inappropriate conduct. Under the circumstances, I am compelled to ask for substitution of judge as a right”. Shelton feared that since Judge Hyland was clearly ignorant, incompetent, arrogant, rude, and biased against her as pro se counsel, so she decided she should use her right to substitute a judge, which cannot be questioned by law. Judge Hyland arrogantly stated: “I don’t apologize to anyone in my courtroom.” Her demeanor was that of a bitchy witch.
Deputy M. Norris, badge 10425, then forcefully grabbed Dr. Shelton by the right arm and yelled at her to “shut up” and “listen to the judge”. This was clearly an assault and battery of Dr. Shelton by Deputy Norris. Dr. Shelton loudly spoke up and staring Norris in the face stated: “Stop assaulting me, I have the right to speak as pro se counsel.”
Judge Hyland then started viciously orally defaming Dr. Shelton making false statements that Dr. Shelton’s conduct was inappropriate and she had to be kicked out of the courtroom. Many deputies started surrounding Dr. Shelton in a very threatening assault on her with Deputy Walter R Stanislavski, badge 10395, placing himself right in front of Dr. Shelton’s walker, actually pushing up against it. Dr. Shelton said she did not appreciate the officers threatening her and she was going to press charges against Deputy Norris for assault.
Dr. Shelton said to the judge, here let me give you a copy of the statute to prove what I am saying. Then Deputy Walter R. Stanislavski nudged up against Dr. Shelton’s walker and stated falsely: “you bumped me”, while looking at Deputy Norris and also stating “if you say she [Deputy Norris] assaulted you, then I’ll charge you with battery.”
Dr. Shelton then stated as attorneys generally do when there is a disagreement with a judge’s ruling and they want their objection on the record: “I wish to make a record,” which means she wishes to make a statement on the record so it is recorded by the court reporter. Shelton then began to state that Judge Hyland was acting with misconduct in abusing her with inappropriate threats and failing to acknowledge she made a mistake about the law, as well as that Judge Hyland made false statements on the record about Shelton’s conduct. That Shelton’s conduct was completely appropriate for a pro se counsel.
Judge Hyland ordered the court reporter not to record these statements which is an agregious act of judicial misconduct and ordered Shelton out of the courtroom. Shelton protested and said this was inappropriate conduct and she had a legal right to make a record.
The prosecutor then asked for special conditions of bond stating she was not to go on the property of the Kaminski family or talk or contact Jeryl, Keith, or Donny Kaminski at 2829 w 98th Street in Evergreen Park. She also stated that Dr. Shelton was not to contact her son, Thomas Shelton who had become estranged from the family and moved in with the Kaminski family – he had coerced his senile grandfather to sign a rental agreement on an apartment, vacated the apartment without paying his bill and writer was trying to deliver the notice of a suit against his grandfather (her father) and the bill to him at this address. Of note, Dr. Shelton has NEVER met or spoken to Jeryl or Keith Kaminski and has not spoken to Donny Kaminski for at least 3 years. Donny used to come visit Tom at the Shelton’s condo and Tom at that time was hanging out with Donny and other “friends”. The purpose of this special condition is therefore unknown and simply must be a purposeful attempt to harass Dr. Shelton and defame her character. There is now no case and therefore no prohibition of going to this property again.
Finally, Judge Hyland agreed to transfer the case to another judge, trying to save face and not admit her mistake and misconduct, she said she was transferring the case to the “jury room” with a different judge.
Dr. Shelton’s son is in need of psychological counseling on due to extreme stresses and instability during childhood of death, illness, defamation, exposure to fumes in an environmental accident, sudden loss of home several times, abuse by a teacher at a young age, abandonment by his father a disturbed Vietnam era veteran, witnessing the results of his mother physically callapsing in near-death experiences in front of him several times or her sudden hospitalization for congenital illness, witnessing the poor and battered physical condition of his mother after abuse by police, and the deterioration of his grandfather. Tom suffers from passive- aggressive personality traits, chronic depression, low self-esteem, and is easily manipulated by others. He has a brilliant analytic mind and knowledge beyond his years, an endearing personality with patience, but great irrational fears and some difficulty with coping skills due to the incredible stresses he has been under for a decade despite his mother’s and grandfather’s best efforts to protect him, provide him a stable, loving environment, and attempts to find male mentors.
Donny Kaminski is a con artist who was kicked out of Evergreen Park high school for manipulating the high school computers. Donny then refused to work or get a high school equivalency degree for the next at least 3-4 years, mooching off his parents. He tried to attach himself to others and take advantage of others’ talents. For example he hung around with musician Ben Huenecke and said that he could handle the sound system for the band. Ben has broken up with Donny.
Tom during this time was taught by his “friends” and I presume Donny to lie to his grandfather and essentially extort money from his grandfather to use to chauffeur his “friends” around, buy them meals, and to Dr. Shelton’s dismay have an underage drunken party with his friends at their condo on Halloween 2006, when whe was not home. These “friends”, Ben Huenecke, Chris Pomorski, Kyle Corbin, Tim Madsen, Donny Kaminski, and other unknown persons have allowed Tom to continue this misconduct and hide it from his mother for a long time. All the “friends” have cut off their relationship with Tom per rumor due to his inappropriate behaviors and untrustworthiness due to psychological issues related to his fears and lying, except for Donny and Tim who have engaged in other allegedly illegal activities.
Dr. Shelton had told Tom that when he was 18 (he is now 24 and was 19 at the time of this misconduct before he estranged himself from his mother for the past five years) he had to either have a job or go to school in order to remain living in her household. Dr. Shelton told Tom he had to show responsibility and concern for his family as an adult. Tom chose instead to try to mooch off his grandfather with lies, dropped his college courses so that he no longer qualified for student aid and refused to get a job even part time for a few hours, ended up extorting money from is grandfather, and he has also stolen his mother’s retirement money and lied to the police to get rid of her. He needed counseling and support from school staff and simply didn’t get it. He took out all his anger and frustration about his bad luck while growing out on his mother, rebelling against her and blaming her for every stressful event. He participated in some counseling arranged by his mother as a teenager, but cut it off as he became an adult. The counseling staff at Roosevelt University and Moraine Valley Junior College have refused to discuss this with writer because Tom is an adult. They have refused to mediate a meeting between mother and son. Tom has pulled the wool over their eyes and those of others with his lies about his mother.
As a result, when Dr. Shelton discovered Tom was extorting money from his grandfather, lying, dropping courses, and manipulating, she kicked him out of her condo in November 2006 and told him to go live with his friends, get a job, and find a place of his own. She told him that as a good mother she had to take this heart wrenching action in order to force Tom to be responsible, that she loved him, and that she would help him in any way she could if he would just get a job or go to school, stop lying and manipulating his grandfather, and get mental health counseling to deal with the decade of stress. Like enabling a drunk, if a family member condones a young adult’s poor choices and misconduct they can not progress and get succeed well.
Tom, then with the help of his “friends”, and Dr. Shelton suspects primarily Donny Kaminski, when Dr. Shelton was not home, broke into Dr. Shelton’s condo, changed the locks including dead bolt and door knob, stole several items, and then Tom went to the Verizon store and in an act of ID theft told the representative that he had his mother’s permission to change the contract, terminate the family plan early, take his cell phone off the contract and open a new contract with a different company. He illegally and without Dr. Shelton’s permission used her social security number. Dr. Shelton’s Verizon bill then revealed a several hundred dollar early termination fee. Dr. Shelton had to hire a locksmith to get into her own home and change the lock again.
Tom then disappeared and refused to reveal where he was living or what he was doing for most of the next three years. During that time he several times when Dr. Shelton, who had moved in with her severely ill and disabled father to care for him, when Dr. Shelton was not home, came to his grandfather and again lied to him demanding money. Grandfather gave Tom money fearing if he didn’t he would lose his love. This is abuse of an elder and extortion as the grandfather is very vulnerable. The grandfather even co-signed as guarantor of an apartment Tom rented for $1000 without even having a roommate. Tom’s mother had urged Tom to go to school and live in a dormitory with people his age to learn to socialize better. Tom’s tendency to isolate himself is not healthy.
Dr. Shelton then discovered that Tom was shacking up with a woman 15 years his senior, Mia Palmer. Dr. Shelton suspected Mia was taking advantage of Tom’s tendency to generosity and his grandfather’s money. Dr. Shelton also discovered Tom had obtained a part-time job at White Sox Park selling T-shirts but was fired because he was such an “a**” according to his friend and his boss.
Dr. Shelton then found Tom and confronted him and told him his grandfather would only pay bills directly to school or for food or rent or utilities if Tom gave them the bills and he would not get any more cash. One of the conditions was that Tom must obtain mental health counseling to deal with his irrational fears and the decade of unusual stresses.
Tom never made good on this promise so grandfather and Dr. Shelton informed Tom the rent would no longer be paid after June 2009. The grandfather felt so stressed by Tom that he instructed Dr. Shelton to handle all of Tom’s requests for money.
Without telling his grandfather or mother, Tom moved out of the apartment and in with the Kaminski family. Tom failed to forward the bills for cleaning out the apartment from the apartment owner to his grandfather and Tom failed to pay the several hundred dollar bill.
Tom’s grandfather received a collection notice for this unpaid bill on October 1, 2009. Dr. Shelton called the apartment owner and obtained Tom’s forwarding address – the Kaminski home. Tom’s grandfather is very ill and becoming more so. Dr. Shelton is worried that her father’s life is fading much more quickly now. Tom’s grandfather had taken them in when Tom’s father, a mentally ill Vietnam veteran had abandoned them and Tom was a year old. Tom’s grandfather has been acting as his father as best he could. Dr. Shelton has seen her father go into great despair over Tom’s acts and disregard for his grandfather.
Dr. Shelton went to the Kaminski home on October 2, 2009 and knocked on the door to try to speak to Tom, plead with him to have the respect and concern for his grandfather to at least come and tell him he loved him and wish him well, and to tell him to please get some mental health treatment and that not telling his grandfather about the bill was inappropriate. She was hoping he would accept a little guidance. No one answered the door and Dr. Shelton, feeling in great despair, disabled and weak, briefly collapsed onto a chair on the Kaminski porch crying and then left.
On October 3, 2009 Dr. Shelton again attempted to contact Tom at the Kaminski house by knocking at the door. Again no one answered. Dr. Shelton noticed a neighbor and asked walked over and asked if they knew when the Kaminskis would be home. The neighbor said she didn’t know because the Kaminski family was “very secretive”.
Then Dr. Shelton briefly walked up the Kaminski driveway to see if Tom was in the backyard, but no one was there. She went to her car to write a note to leave for Tom at the door.
Then Evergreen Police came and arrested Dr. Shelton for trespass stating that Donny Kaminski had told Dr. Shelton not to come on the property – a total lie as Dr. Shelton had not spoken or seen Donny for years. Dr. Shelton protested and the officer said that Donny had come to the police station the night before and made a complaint against her for trespass.
Dr. Shelton pleaded with the police to ask the Kaminski parents, Jeryl and Keith to come out and speak with her because she was so concerned about her son’s mental health and his relationship with his grandfather. She had never spoken to them and wanted to inform them of the situation. The police stated they spoke with them and the Kaminskis refused to have the common decency to even speak with Dr. Shelton. One has to question the decency of a family who interferes with and refuses to help another family remain intact.
In response to Dr. Shelton stating that Donny never told her to not come on the property and that the day before was the first time that she had ever knocked on the door, and that no one answered so it could not be trespass, as simply ringing a doorbell is not trespass, the officer said that a detective had called Dr. Shelton and spoke to her the night before and said not to come on the property. Dr. Shelton protested and said she received no such phone call. Then the officer said, “well he left a message on your answering machine.” Dr. Shelton said this was impossible because her answering machine was full and she had not deleted messages for days. Dr. Shelton later obtained documents that prove the police called the wrong Linda Shelton, as there are several in the Chicago area. This other Linda Shelton told the police that she did not have a son named Thomas and was not at that property, and wondered how the police got her number. A subpoena of the Evergreen Park Police phone records of the telephone number they called when contacting this other “Linda Shelton” will prove how incompetent they are and abusive of Dr. Shelton they were.
Then the the Evergreen Park Police unlawfully arrested Dr. Shelton for trespass. It is unlawful because she was never told by the property owner or occupant not to come on the property at 2829 W. 98th St. in Evergreen Park. Simply ringing a doorbell is not criminal trespass.
Dr. Shelton immediately hired a private detective who examined her cell phone and will testify there were no messages form the police and that it had been full for days, so clearly the Evergreen Park police lied. This arrest is fraud upon the court by Donny Kaminski and the Evergreen Park Police, besides incredible incompetence and stupidity of the Evergreen Park Police.
Dr. Shelton is very concerned about her son, particularly worried that he has become trained by Donny and others to commit fraud, deceit, and extortion. Tom last year made a fraudulent elder abuse report stating that Dr. Shelton was extorting money from her father and verbally abusing him. This was investigated and found to be “unfounded”. The grandfather has a substantial retirement account or estate, but it is all needed to care for him and for other members of the family with catastrophic illness, including Toms’ uncle and aunt. The family is plagued by catastrophic illness. Dr. Shelton is trying to help her father manage it well to preserve the funds as long as possible. Tom apparently is trying to defame and discredit his mother so he can take control of his grandfather’s money.
Tom has now filed a false complaint for order of protection against his mother, falsely stating she is mentally ill, violent, abused him as a child, and is threatening him. Dr. Shelton’s doctors, neighbors, friends and family will testify this is false. Dr. Shelton will subpoena Tom’s “friends” if necessary. Dr. Shelton had Tom in counseling with professionals since the age of 15 to about 17, but Tom was only partially cooperative. These psychiatrists and psychologists will testify that there was never any history of family violence or abuse of Tom. These false statements by Tom are again criminal fraud upon the court. Dr. Shelton is praying that the court and Tom’s “friends” will open their eyes and force Tom into counseling and supervision to treat his mental state. Dr. Shelton is praying that the Kaminski parents will open their eyes to the fact they are being manipulated and praying that the Kaminski parents, Jeryl and Keith, are not crooks who are using Tom.
Dr. Shelton is extremely saddened and in despair over the failure of his “friends”, Jeryl and Keith Kaminski, and the court to help Tom and she fears Tom is headed for a life of committing manipulation and fraud which can only lead to prison. Tom is a very intelligent and endearing man with great potential for success in life, if he will let others help him. Dr. Shelton fears that the Kaminski family are either suckers under the influence of their son who clearly has a history of cunning manipulation and fraud, or they are some kind of criminals who have taken Tom in to assist in their illegal activities. The unethical conduct of the Kaminski family in abusing Dr. Shelton and Tom’s grandfather by refusing to talk to them is incredible. If they believe they are “helping” Tom, they are sorely mistaken. They are harming him.
After being told that there were special conditions of bond that she could not contact her son, Dr. Shelton became very despondent and tried to re-enter the courtroom, crying that she wanted clarification to know if she could inform Tom when his grandfather died or if this would be a violation of the order. She is despondent over the fact that her father is being so mentally stressed and abused by her son, and that Tom’s conduct is 180 degrees opposite to the family values of honesty and empathy that she had tried so hard to teach to him. [UPDATE - Dr. Shelton's father, Tom's grandfather was seen by a doctor today 10/25 due to sudden deterioration and plans are being made for increased medical assistance and assistance as Dr. Shelton is too weak and now exhausted to have sole responsibility to physically help her father - his illness is untreatable and advanced]
Dr. Shelton is barred from contacting Tom or asking anyone to contact him about this situation. She is barred from telling Tom when his grandfather dies or is placed in a hospital. Judge Hyland – YOU ARE AN IGNORANT, IMMORAL, WITCH! YOU DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT AN OLD MAN WHO CARED FOR AND LOVED HIS GRANDSON; A GRANDSON WHO IS IN GREAT NEED OF MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING! YOU SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE BENCH.
The deputies blocked her entrance into the courtroom even though as pro se counsel she had the legal right to recall the case for clarification. They then grabbed her and dragged her off under arrest for “battery” using the fabricated charge against her.
Dr. Shelton tried to ask persons sitting in the courtroom gallery and a lawyer if they would give her their names as witnesses to this police and judicial misconduct, but they all stood back and refused to assist a fellow citizen under attack by the corrupt. Evil prospers when good men fail to act. This is a sad state of affairs. This is why our State and County is so rife with corruption. The people in the gallery, the attorneys present, the prosecutors, Judge Hyland, and the deputies present know what is said here is the absolute truth.
Dr. Shelton is requesting that any one who has knowledge about the Kaminski family or her son in the past three years please contact her, especially if you are able to testify as to Tom’s behavior and any fraud perpetrated by Tom or Donny Kaminski. She would also appreciate donations to her legal defense fund at: Shelton defense fund, C/O Albukerk and Associates, 3025 W 26th Street, Chicago, IL 60625. Dr. Shelton is disabled, on food stamps, and hoping for a little humanity, justice, and fairness to surface. She loves her son and is frantic with worry about him to the point it is effecting her health.
I have filed a criminal appeal on a case where I as a disabled person in a wheelchair was attacked by Cook County Sheriff Sgt. Anthony Salemi, he falsified his records, accused me of attacking him, committed perjury and I was wrongfully convicted:
The trial court declared me indigent and ordered the court reporter to file a free copy of the transcripts with the court for an appeal. The court reporter has refused to follow the court order. The trial judge refuses to enforce the order because he said he lost jurisdiction to the IL Appellate Court.
The IL Appellate court has six time refused to enforce the court order and compel the court reporter to file the transcripts or hold her in contempt. My appeal is therefore delayed due to the illegal and unconstitutional acts of the Illinois Appellate Court First District.
The Illinois Supreme Court also has denied a motion for supervisory order to compel the court reporter to file the transcripts and compel the IL Appellate Court to enforce the order.
The IL Appellate Court granted the Cook County States Attorney’s motion to compel me to pay for the transcripts and file them, instead of the court reporter. This is fraud upon the court as it violates a previous court order and is contempt as it also violates the United States Supreme Court holding (precedent) in a case where they ruled that indigent defendants are entitled under the due process and equal protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution to a free transcript for appeal. Illinois Supreme Court Rule 607 also mandates that indigent defendants are entitled to free transcripts filed with the court clerk by the court reporter.
Therefore both the Illinois Supreme Court and Illinois Appellate Court are committing illegal acts.
The Illinois Appellate Court has now vacated their order to compel me to file the transcripts as I moved for them to vacate order as they illegally granted the motion from the State two days too early according to IL Supreme Court rules. They also allowed me to file immediately (instanter) my response to the States Attorney’s motion to compel me to file the transcripts. This response clearly spells out the illegal acts of the IL Appellate and IL Supreme Courts in refusing to uphold previous court orders, and statutory and constitutional rights as previously decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. These are impeachable intentional acts by these corrupt and dishonorable judges. I hope the IL Appellate Court recognizes its mistakes and doesn’t just vacate the order to re-instate it several days later when the law allows them to make a decision.
It is incumbent upon the IL Appellate Court to compel the court reporter to file the transcripts and hold her in contempt if she fails to do so.
