COME TO COURT, view from court gallery Judge Cannon’s announcement of written decision concerning Shelton’s argument that IL battery statute is unconstitutional on 7/13/16 rm 506 2600 S California at 10 am, Chicago, IL

Until justice is served, Chicago should have no peace.

Alvarez has continued to systemically target me by prosecuting me for now nearly 40 cases of unlawful and unconstitutional arrests over the last 15 years in retaliation for being a whistle blower against corrupt judges and corrupt Sheriff staff and police officers from Chicago, Evergreen Park, and Oak Lawn.

Help me (Shelton) now by showing up to court hearings (NEXT one 7/20/17 room 506 10 AM 2600 S California – though judge hears others first and waits until gallery empty so there will be no witnesses to her illegal rulings), giving Shelton support in pending case: click here

Enough is enough!!  Vote out Clerk Brown and vote NO on every judge on judicial retention ballot!! Replace any candidate or Alderman who refuses to commit to investigation of the Cook County Court system, Cook County police including Chicago Police, Suburban Police, and especially the Cook County Sheriff including their Courtroom Services Division and Correctional Officers.

Its time for Chicagoans to stand up against police, prosecutorial, and judicial corruption in consistent, constant, recurring, protests until the Cook County Board, Chicago City Council, the FBI and U.S. Attorney, Illinois legislature, and U.S. Congress change training of police to de-escalate and not shoot unarmed or those with knives or bats, as well as judicial, oversight to remedy the following:

The killing of 22-year-old Rekia Boyd  by off duty Chicago police officer Dante Servin when he shot backward over his shoulder towards a group of people is clear murder as well as is involuntary manslaughter because he clearly meant to shoot someone in that direction although he may not have meant to shoot Boyd specifically.  So it is both a voluntary act of shooting someone without premeditation (murder) and an involuntary act of killing someone he did not specifically target. You can be sure that if he was a civilian he would have been charged with murder and there are examples of such in the Court Clerk’s records.

Cook County States Attorney Anita Alvarez knows this and purposely undercharged him in my opinion as she always favors the police and covers up for their crimes and errors. She was in charge of the division in the State’s Attorney’s office under SA Devine which was responsible for prosecuting government corruption for a decade and essentially shut down that office. She has for decades had a history of reckless disregard for the rights of citizens, which corrupt and incompetent officials have violated.

I mostly defended myself successfully but the two cases for which I was convicted are just unjust wrongful  convictions or meatballs that stuck when the spaghetti plate was thrown. Three contempt convictions with a summary (NO TRIAL = illegal sentence) sentence of 16 months later changed to 12 months consecutive were clearly unconstitutional and malicious by Judge McHale. See here description and case law.

One wrongful felony conviction for “bumping an officer with my wheelchair” = felony aggravated battery for “causing an abrasion” and resulting in a two year outrageous sentence was also unlawful, never happened, and due to falsification of records and perjury by Officer Anthony Salemi (see appeal here).

The denial of appeal by the Appellate Court was unlawful and based on an ad hominem attack by Appellate Justice Levin that ignored the arguments and case law in appeal brief. See outrageous opinion here where Judge Levin quotes defamatory rumors about my behavior in courts, which have no basis – here).

The misdemeanor conviction for “bumping an officer with my walker” was again perjury by Courtroom Services Deputy Sheriff  Ateca. She lied and said I was sitting and pushed my walker against her causing no injury. She actually walked in front of me when I was walking to the elevator and slowed down suddenly so I would accidentally bump into her. Her partner is aiding and abetting this perjury by not speaking up.

The judge fixed the case by not allowing me to take my medication for chronic pain, vertigo, and PTSD so that I was so distraught and unable to properly question the witness as my own attorney and too sick to testify so I chose not to that I appeared crazy to the jury and confused so they ignored me and convicted me. This was an unlawful trial as I was denied American with Disability Act required accommodations (medications) during my trial as well as access to my legal documents while jailed during the trial.

It’s a violation of civil rights to impede a self-represented person from access to her court documents, pen and paper, during a trial.

There is a pattern of under-trained officers who disregard the rights of defendants and abuse the disabled, especially the mentally ill, as well as purposely lawless judges who cover-up for criminal acts of police, retaliate against whistle blowers, and are biased against poor and minorities or uneducated.

The public defender’s budget is minuscule compared to the prosecutor’s budget so that the public defenders do not have the time or resources to properly defend anyone.  The gun (officer’s weapon) used by Robin Johnson was not checked for her fingerprints and no medical experts or doctors were called as witnesses in her defense for example.

Judge Porter is a cunning politician who never should have found Servin not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, despite the lack of the more appropriate murder charge. I suspect that Alvarez and Porter conspired to do this so that Alvarez can say she charged him, but Porter would have an excuse to find him not guilty – thus protecting the officer.

Judge Gainer wrongfully convicted Robin Johnson of murder of an officer in 2013, when Chicago police committed perjury – they shot their own man, by illegally refusing to allow testimony that Johnson was in a standing seizure (confused), had a long history of such seizures that were not controlled well and was often found wandering at night at bus stops, had a grand mal seizure in her bathroom at home that morning, that it took five years pretrial while she was in jail to mostly control her seizures, that she had been repeatedly bashed while in a head lock against a bus by her head by the deceased officer, and Johnson had no experience with guns or training in attacking others or defending herself.

So how does a 5′ tall grandmother with no criminal history disarm a 6′ tall seasoned Sargent and shoot him in the head – with a large gun that is really too large for her tiny hand to hold and handle  this weapon while in a confused state of mind due to a seizure?

She clearly could have no intent if she was in a seizure and confused so the charge is void and the public defender refused to argue this defense. The state had multiple videos but the moments where she allegedly held the gun were missing for “unknown reasons”! The gun was lost for a period of time, which per the U.S. Supreme Court decision means that the case automatically should have been dismissed due to tampering with evidence.

The state made up a baloney theory that her motive was that she was an “angry person” out to kill a cop! They didn’t let her children (including a daughter studying to be an attorney) and grandchildren, relatives and friends testify that she was not a violent, aggressive, or “angry” person.

Notably, Gainer should have recused himself because his close relative was former top cop in the U.S. – Terrance Gainer who had at retirement been Chief of the Capital police in Washington, D.C., had long record of being chief of several departments and president of the American Society of Police Chiefs!  He is often “randomly” assigned to cases involving police officers as victims or plaintiffs by “coincidence.”

She is now serving a wrongful life sentence while her husband is dying for something she didn’t do in order for Alvarez to cover-up the shooting of the officer by police. Johnson barely survived 22 wounds when officers arriving on the scene emptied their guns against her, even though by then the videos show her unarmed and down. That’s attempted murder.

robin johnson

Robin Johnson = innocent person

Serving life sentence for shooting officer

The FBI and U.S. Attorney should arrest Servin for criminal violation of civil rights under color of law and convict him in that manner.

Mayor Emmanuel should denounce this officer and criticize Alvarez but he has no guts to stand for the right.

Supt. Johnson should call the kettle black and fire Servin for official misconduct due to clear violation of his oath of office to uphold the law and control his gun.

For 20 years I have been supporting the minority populations in Cook County as a physician standing up for my patients in court when no other doctor would do so, writing these blogs to expose corruption and providing the FBI and U.S. Attorney information about corruption and abuse at the jail and in the courts. I won a suit for mandamus, in the public interest, against the Sheriff in 2004-5 for violating the freedom of information act and not giving me a copy of their compliance plan for the Americans with Disabilities Act regarding accommodating disabled at courthouses. They were forced to admit that for more than a decade they were in violation of federal law by failing to have a compliance plan.

I have been repeatedly unlawfully arrested usually for trespass, resisting arrest, or battery of ONLY officers in courthouses usually with only police witnesses (!!) for falsely alleged “bumping them with my walker or wheelchair” and personally beaten by the Chicago Police and Cook County Sheriff staff.

My mouth was covered with duct tape during an asthma attack – which could have killed me except a Sgt. ordered it removed. My pony tail was grabbed and my head banged against a wall despite major neck spine surgery – which could have caused death like with Freddie Grey, held on the floor by Correctional officers Ruiz and Levy and kicked with their boots (see pictures). I was beaten by a Chicago Police Detention Aid Shell (see picture 1 & 2) for taking my medication for severe pain and vertigo after it was handed to me while in the police station during a release from unlawful custody. I had my shoulder severely strained and mildly dislocated by Correctional officer Charles Johnson in Dec. 2006 confirmed by an orthopedic surgeon. I was body slammed when C/O Johnson grabbed by handcuffed in front hands and swung them up and slammed me down against a row of chairs with arms causing contusions on my back especially near my surgery site – resulting in temporary paralysis and shock – then slamming me onto the floor where I laid outside the jail ER mocked by officers for hrs and temporarily unable to move without medical care – then a “nurse” looked at me and said nothing was wrong while ignoring the 5″ scar on the back of my neck from surgery, passed out from cardiac arrhythmia and severe neurocardiogenic syncope in the jail Cermak ER and ignored on the floor for hrs, suffered ischemia of the heart and a brief respiratory arrest when exposed to tobacco smoke in 2001 after a false arrest even though I told them I could not tolerate tobacco smoke – then when returned from the ER the medical staff failed to do the cardiac enzyme tests needed over 24 hrs to be sure I did not suffer a heart attack (I have the medical records).

I have been in 2013-2014 jailed for one year without bail for “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback induced by Courtroom Services Sheriff’s Officers who misused information I gave to the Court Disability Coordinator Pacelli to trigger the flashback – then they failed to back off when I began to “misperceive ongoing events” crumbled to the floor and swung my hands around my head to block misperceived blows (due to flashback which is like reliving the nightmare in a daytime dream like altered state of consciousness) as well as grabbed out involuntarily to steady myself when pushed and picked up by them (due to my neurological disease and resulting balance issues). For more information see this link here.

I have now challenged the constitutionality of the Illinois battery statutes for making touching an officer a felony crime. Come to court at 2600 S California, room 506, Chicago on 7/13/16 at 10 am and hear Judge Cannon’s decision on this motion.  For more info about this motion read here.

“This is the first time I’ve ever seen (a) judge let a criminal go because he was improperly charged,” said Frank Chapman. “I have never seen that before,” confirming the intellectual, intentional misconduct of Judge Porter in refusing to convict on involuntary manslaughter because “it was voluntary” and he should have been charged with murder.

Chapman believes the state’s attorney’s office and the police department have too close of a relationship to look at cases like these objectively.  They say Servin is the first Chicago police officer in 20 years to be charged with killing someone.

Shelton disabled whistle blower – facing felony battery for touching an ear during PTSD flashback

leave a comment »


Cook County Sheriff deputies have repeatedly falsely arrested me for bumping them with my walker or wheelchair or “attacking” them.  They walk in front of me so that I bump them. I’ve been found not guilty in the past due to false charges: click here – now they are trying again!!

Sheriff Dart, the two-faced hypocrite has opened a part-time “show” “clinic two days a week at one suburban courthouse, stating this  somehow addresses pretrial issues of mental illness and will reduce pretrial jail time for the mentally ill, yet he allowed me to be illegally and unconstitutionally held on no bail for a year at the jail for during a PTSD flashback induced by officers in a misdemeanor courtroom “touching an officer’s ear”!!!  He won’t even discuss the misconduct of his staff with me or view the photos below of beatings in retaliation for my whistle blowing. His actions on behalf of mentally ill are too little too late and he is ignoring the torture of detainees and abuse of mentally ill detainees at the jail, as well as the lawlessness of the judges. Read more below:

Please help support disabled whistle blower against police excessive force, provide publicity, show up in court, help find & fund attorney. Don’t let corrupt Cook County judge put an innocent disabled whistle blower in prison for 3-14 years for alleged act of “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback  purposely triggered by Cook County Sheriff staff & a corrupt Judge who want to shut up Shelton in order to take down this web site, prevent her from helping others abused by the state, and take down her prosechicago and other web sites exposing corruption among Cook County and IL state officials, as well as police and sheriff staff.

I am unlawfully charged with felony battery of an officer for “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback purposely triggered by Cook County Sheriff officers in a courtroom and held in jail on unconstitutional “no bail” order for a year! Possible sentence 3-14 years! Yet officers throughout the country have not even been arrested for murdering unarmed men in the act of complying with police orders!  We live in a totalitarian police state where officers get away with murder and whistle blowers like me are tarred and feathered for complaining about court and police corruption!PLEASE COME TO COURT AND PROTEST – NEXT HEARING July 20, 2017, 10 AM, 2600 S CALIFORNIA, CHICAGO, IL COURTROOM  506

I am a civil rights activist who has numerous blogs including this one and many of those listed in “links” on the right, where I document including with scanned in evidence corruption among Cook County judges, officials, and police, as well as Illinois officials. I have been associated with a group of pro se activists who help victims of court corruption learn how to defend themselves in that we have taught litigants how to navigate the law library, find statutes, find legal forms, find legal opinions and case law, as well as find examples of court motions, petitions, and other legal forms used in court. In so doing we have discovered that Cook County judges, often through incompetence and manipulation by corrupt senior judges & officials or senior officers motivated to defame litigants or whistle blowing defendants, routinely violate the law and help corrupt attorneys, court appointed guardians as well as counselors, and abusive officers steal estates from the elderly and those in bitter divorces as attorney and other fees, falsely vilify one parent so they lose custody and often even give custody to abusive parents, and defame defendants with frequently false charges fabricated by malicious ex spouses, greedy siblings in a rivalry over an estate, or civil rights activists like me, Sheila Mannix, David Bambic, Mic Gerhardt and many others who both help others navigate this mess and seek justice. The corrupt machine is at full force right now against me and others – especially in Cook County  – in retaliation for complaining about this judicial corruption. In retaliation for my complaints about this and inhumane extensive civil rights and ADA violations at the Cook County jail, the Sheriff staff have fabricated another fraudulent criminal charge. Please help me by coming to court, writing letters, and speaking up. READ the following and the links so that you know what is going on or email me at picepil@aol.com and ask questions.

United we stand; divided we fall. We can’t help those who need information, expose the corruption, and seek legislative solutions and investigation by the U.S. Attorney and the press if we are falsely convicted, medically neglected and abused, or defamed and ignored. Stop court abuse, false arrest, malicious prosecution, & abuse of PTSD victims PLEASE, write letters to officials, especially President of Cook Couty Board of Commissioners at the addresses listed in this post: here – you will also find a  suggested letter.

Preckwinkle’s address is:   Hon. Tony Preckwinkle, President Cook County Board of Commissioners 5th Flr 118 N. Clark Street Chicago, IL 60602

COME TO COURT TO SHOW THEM SHE HAS SUPPORT Support Shelton Next court date –   July 20, 2017

2016 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 at blue links 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 (Anthony Salemi, Charles Johnson, Short black female Levy, and others) 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 hat 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.  Jail officers Levy (small black female), Ruiz, and Connally (sp?) held me down and beat me and kicked me with their boots (link to photos). One Chicago Police  lock-up aide returned my possessions as I was being released, but then when I opened a pill container to take medication which was late, as they wouldn’t let me have it, grabbed me spilling the pills and called her colleagues who acted like thugs attacking me, then brutally beat me and re-arrested me and in addition made false claims that I attacked her! Shell battery photos

As a result of this assault and battery of my person by officers, 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. Psych Dr Galatzer Levy

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.

Better Business Bureau Complaint against Peck Bloom, LLC law firm and Judge James Riley for corruption

with one comment


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 picepil@aol.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.

UPDATE: The BBB refused to examine this complaint saying investigating attorneys was not part of their mission. 12-16-12

Office of the Attorney General of the United States (202) 514-2001

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.

You can make complaints with the Better Business Bureau here. My complaint is as follows:

Complaint Description:
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.

See: https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com & http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com

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.

Vote NO on all judges on judicial retention ballots every election

with 5 comments


UPDATE: 11/10/16 Despite corrupt acts described below every judge was retained by judicial retention ballot because public ignores this part of ballot & leaves it blank. Yet if only  a few hundred to a 1000 people would vote no on each judge we could throw them out! Not ONE judge was removed, even Judge Pantle and others whom bar associations or other groups deemed unqualified.

The time is NOW to give Crook County and the corrupt officials in Crook County a message that the public will no longer stand for corrupt judges.

Shelton reviewed 15 years of election results on judicial retention ballots. Despite many judges being rated as UNQUALIFIED by many bar associations each election cycle, NO judges have ever been voted out by the public!

This is because the judges pay Alderman Burke’s lackeys or associates to order signs to place on the lawns of members of the Sheriff’s department and Secretary of State’s department (or they won’t keep their jobs or promotions) and use sheriff deputies in plain clothes on government time to hand out cards with list of judges to vote for at polling places.

Lawyers and other judges must also vote for the machine picks or there are consequences as there are consequences with government employees in Crook County who fail to sell (or buy) enough tickets for political fund-raising activities.

Most judges are retained by votes of only 500 to 2500 total.  It takes just 1  vote to retain them or a simple majority of the votes cast.

Most people don’t bother to vote for judges as who knows who is qualified out of the list of 50 to 100 or more judges on the ballot.

So if everyone would pledge to vote NO on ALL judges on the judicial retention ballots consistently and pass the word to all your friends and pass the word that we ALL MUST VOTE, then THE PEOPLE can USE THEIR POWER to stir up the system!  IMAGINE IF 1/3 OF THE 400 JUDGES WERE NOT RETAINED AND THE IL SUPREME COURT HAD TO SUDDENLY REPLACE THEM BY APPOINTMENT – THE SYSTEM WOULD BE IN DISARRAY!  THIS WOULD SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE TO THE CORRUPT THAT THE PEOPLE WILL NO LONGER STAND FOR CORRUPTION AND INCOMPETENT JUDGES.

Yes a few competent judges may be lost, but that’s the price we have to pay to make a statement and to exercise the power of the people for REFORM of our CORRUPT CROOK COUNTY COURTS!

PLEDGE TO VOTE NO ON ALL JUDGES ON THE RETENTION BALLOTS AND PLEDGE TO TELL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO MAKE THE PLEDGE TOO, EVERY ELECTION UNTIL TRUE COURT AND JUDICIAL REFORM OCCURS!

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

with 2 comments


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.

_____________

UPDATE:

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. So why are Anita Alvarez and Lisa Madigan still continuing this case? PLEASE ASK THEM at:

Anita Alvarez
Cook Co States Attorney
50 W Washington, Rm 500
Chicago IL 60602

AG Lisa Madigan
Illinois Attorney General
100 W Randolph, 12th Floor
Chicago, IL 60601

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!

Judge jailed Shelton illegally for filing next-friend habeas petition

with 2 comments


I will be writing much more and scanning into computer and providing links to court documents later. I just want to get this on the record quickly so here is the short version.

Due to really gross judicial misconduct essentially removing the right to file a next-friend habeas petition in Cook County, just got out of 6 mo in jail wrongfully convicted of contempt of court by Judge Michael B. McHale, for filing a next-friend habeas petition as a non-attorney even though IL law specifically allows this. Then when the judge said it was illegal I said the US Supreme Court had declared in Boumedine v Bush in 2008 that even prisoners at Guantanamo Bay had a right for a next-friend (father – see Justice Souter’s footnote) to file a habeas petition and in 1980 in U.S. v Will quoting Chief Justice Marshall’s 1821 statement that violating US Supreme Court decisions and law blatently, for a judge was treason, several times, he illegally sentenced me summarily to 120 days + 180 days + 180 days consecutive sentences on three contempt charges (16) mo in jail, later reduced on my motions to 8 mo with two of the sentences concurrent so got out in 6 mo. on Nov. 6, 2010.

This sentence violated numerous U.S. Supreme Court & State higher court opinions and laws, that state that non-attorneys may file next-friend habeas petitions; cumulative contempt sentences in one trial require a jury trial if greater than 6 months summary sentence; sentences for one state of mind must be concurrent; cannot convict for same act more than once, etc. This was also done after I asked for substitution of judge as a right and Judge McHale refused – which also voids all subsequent orders and is a violation of state laws.

I filed a habeas petition pro se (for myself on this conviction in the local Cook County Circuit Court, which was illegally denied, when Judge Porter said that even if Judge McHale illegally said that filing next-friend habeas petition was illegal, this did not make him lose jurisdiction. The U.S. Supreme Court and state case law have ruled that when a judge knowingly violates the law, he violates his oath of office, commits treason and his rulings become void.

Since there is no appeal of habeas petition in IL, am in the process of getting filed a petition for certiorari with US Supreme Court.

Their clerks keep messing up and sending it back to me stating I have to go to the IL Supreme Court first. But I have sent them now twice the US Supreme Court ruling in Loftus case 334 U.S. 408 related to IL Supreme Court reply in People v Loftus 400 Ill. 432 (1948) and in Woods v Niersheimer (1926) 328 U.S. 211 where the U.S. Supreme Court held that appeal of habeas in Cook County Circuit Court, due to unique IL law, must go directly to U.S. Supreme Court, as under IL law the local court is considered the highest court in the state concerning a habeas petition if filed in the local court (habeas can also be filed in the IL Supreme Court if NO evidentiary issues and only issues of law, but not appealed to IL Supreme court).

Please encourage all to donate money to me as the legal seige against me by corrupt judges and officials is becoming impossible to defend against without money. Donations can be sent, with checks written to Albukerk & Associates, to C/O Albukerk & Associates, Shelton defense fund, 111 E Wacker Drive, Suite 111, Chicago, IL 60601. I am in DESPERATE need of financial and legal assistance. If any lawyer on the US Supreme Court bar concerned about the de facto denial of habeas in Cook County, civil rights and retaliation against whistle blowers wants to help, please contact Mr. Albukerk at 773 847-2600. PLEASE HELP ME SEND THIS MESSAGE AROUND THE COUNTRY AND WORLD AS IL IS SO EXTREMELY CORRUPT AND THEREFORE THE CONSTITUTION IN IL IS UNDER SIEGE AND WHISTLE BLOWERS AGAINST GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION ARE IN GREAT PERSONAL JEOPARDY!
