Mass support for Shelton in court and in letter writing campaign to stop retaliation against whistle blower

leave a comment »


Encourage the press to cover this story of judicial bribery, judicial incompetence or maliciousness, wholesale violation of civil rights in Cook County Courts, and retaliation against a whistle blower.

Come to courtroom 506 2600 S California Ave, Chicago, IL, 10:00 AM on July 20, 2017 and every hearing date after this for case 12 CR 22504, where whistle blower and disabled defendant, Dr. Linda Shelton is on trial, having been illegal charged in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for allegedly “touching an officer’s ear and pulling hair” during a PTSD flashback where she cowers, is confused, believes she is being beaten up, and swings her arms around her head to try and protect herself.

The officers were informed about her flashbacks and to “back-off” as recommended by her psychiatrist during the flashbacks until she “recovers her equilibrium”, but instead grabbed her, literally lifting her off the ground, and then when she touched the  officer innocently, likely due to her medical problems including serious lack of balance and the PTSD,  Sheriff staff took advantage of the vague and likely unconstitutional Illinois battery statute to charge Shelton with FELONY battery, which could carry a sentence of 3 to 14 years in prison.

For extensive details – Large federal pending habeas petition and 100s of pages of evidence of corruptio of the Sheriff staff and Cook County Court judges – read here

This is outrageous, immoral, and unconstitutional.  A large grass roots effort is needed to challenge this outrage. The following is repeated on Shelton’s Facebook page here. Mass public pressure needed for justice and to fight government corruption and attacks on whistle blower.PLEASE WRITE THE SUGGESTED LETTER TO THE FOLLOWING OFFICIALS! You know that I expose corruption in Illinois and Cook County, particularly family, probate, and criminal courts,  through my web sites including: https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com, http://chicagofbi.wordpress.com, http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com, and http://prosechicago.wordpress.com.

There has been a ten year attack against me in retaliation for above and I need public support in a huge way.

PLEASE WRITE THESE PEOPLE AND ASK THEM TO INVESTIGATE – SUGGESTED LETTER FOLLOWS:

And ask them to help me to make an appointment with an investigator in the FBI/US Attorney’s offices to file criminal complaints. I need mass involvement in order to obtain justice.

My property and home, as well as father’s estate for which I am trustee were all stolen to destroy me and shut me up as whistle blower. I live in Oak Lawn, IL.

SUGGESTED LETTER: Please help Linda Shelton to make appointments with the FBI and U. S. Attorney to deal with corrupt judges in Cook County, corrupt peace officers, numerous false arrests in retaliation for her whistle blowing and in violation of the American with Disabilities Act.

Her issues cross state lines and expose corruption at the highest political levels in Illinois.

She has helped many of us in exposing corruption in the family courts, probate courts, and criminal courts and now she needs our help!

She is disabled and her illnesses are making it harder for her to act alone.

The theft of her home and money is outrageous and was done by those who had her falsely arrested to get her out of the way so they could do their evil and illegal acts. The situation involves:

1) forgery and fraud upon the court in making a fraudulent deathbed trust. Illegal eviction without the sheriff using the Oak Lawn Police – who knew they could not evict without the Sheriff in an eviction case which was DISMISSED – while the eviction case was pending – now they won’t let her into her house without threat of arrest and are selling the house

2) Theft of her personal property and a $2 million estate for which she is trustee transferred to a person in New Jersey and to unscrupulous attorneys taking advantage of this mentally ill person in New Jersey to convert it to attorney fees.

3) Bribery of a probate judge to write an order saying they own the property and can evict her – when ONLY a forcible entry and detainer action can evict someone – or it is an unlawful lockout, breaking and entering, trespass, wrongful conveyance, theft, etc. The probate judge made orders in the probate case on the issue of a trust – which was not before him so he had no jurisdiction!!! This is criminal action by that judge.

4) False arrest for “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback TRIGGERED PURPOSELY BY SHERIFF STAFF – thus a charge of FELONY battery to an officer where they are seeking a 3-14 yr sentence!

Shelton is disabled and had a court disability coordinator agreement that the officers would not use info given them to trigger a flashback and if there was a flashback, they would back off while Shelton was confused, cried, cowered and appeared terrified. Instead they grabbed her and carried her to jail, charging her with this fraudulent felony.

They are the criminals for violating the agreement.

Battery requires intent and they knew there was no intent during a flashback as she was confused and having an altered state of consciousness consistent with a flashback – where she relives in a dream like state attack against her by police where she went into a respiratory arrest.

She needs an officer to obtain search warrants and recover her property.

Can you ask the FBI and US Attorney to investigate and to assist as it involves a person in New Jersey – thus crime crosses state lines! Shelton has documentary evidence to prove all of the above.

Of course, the Oak Lawn police won’t arrest themselves.

THANK YOU TO ANYONE WHO WRITES, ATTENDS COURT HEARINGS, OR HELPS ME AND OTHERS FIGHTING COURT CORRUPTION IN ANY WAY!

Judge Mary Margaret Brosnahan commits treason again – vindictive excessive bail

with one comment


On May 5, 2010 Annabel Melongo who has been held in Cook County Jail on first no bail for alleged violation of bail on a computer tampering charge that is bogus and without probable cause and also on a $30,000 bail on an eavesdropping charge which is bogus and without probable cause, went before Judge Brosnahan with her attorney J. Nicolas Albukerk to ask for reduction of bail. Bail was originally set several years ago on the computer tampering charge at a $10,000 personal recognizance bail (I-Bond).

Melongo has been religiously attending all court hearings on this computer tampering case for years. She was originally indicted three years ago, the indictment withdrawn and then she was re-indicted on the same charge. She clearly is NOT a flight risk. She also at this point is indigent because she cannot obtain work as a computer consultant or IT expert while under indictment for computer tampering. No one will trust her.

Therefore an innocent person, Melongo, is undergoing a civil death because Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and States Attorney Anita Alvarez want to corruptly protect the reputation of politicians who gave Save-A-Life Foundation CEO Spizzirra (a “pathological liar” according to a Wisconsin court, manipulator, and a fraud artist) more than $8 million dollars without checking out her background or the legitimacy of her fraudulent corporation, and then never investigating what she did with the money. Rumor has it that kickbacks (pay-to-play amounts ended up back in the political funds of the politicians). Melongo who had been hired by SALF discovered this massive fraud and the involvement of politicians (Madigan, Durbin, Shankowsky, Duncan, etc) prior to leaving SALF. She has taken this information to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney and FBI have failed to arrest anyone as of this date!

Melongo’s supporters are asking if the Chicago FBI and U.S. Attorney are involved in this cover-up of massive fraud? Why else would they fail to arrest those involved?

Judge Brosnahan had originally set bail at “no bail” in violation of the Illinois Constitution Article I, Section 9 but reduced it to a grossly excessive $500,000 bail on the computer tampering charge in April. Her reason for setting the “no bail” amount is not known to me as I did not attend that hearing. However the “no bail” order is clearly unconstitutional and illegal.

Judges can only set “no bail” if the charge could result in a life sentence or death sentence, or if a due process hearing determines the person poses a real and present threat to the physical safety of any person. See: Illinois Constitution Article I, section 9. Obviously Melongo with no previous criminal record does NOT fall into this category.

Judge Brosnahan intentionally and willingly violated the Illinois Constitution. This is an impeachable act of treason. She clearly is not fit to be a judge.

Then Judge Brosnahan gave as a reason to decrease bail to $500,000 that Melongo had “two passports”, Haitian and Cameroonean. This is an unconstitutional and not legally authorized reason to set high bail. Bail is meant to ensure that a person comes to court, not that a person cannot get out of jail. It must be reasonable according to the United States Supreme Court in their interpretation of the bail clause in the United States Constitution Eighth Amendment which bars excessive bail. See: Stack v. Boyle, 342 U.S. 1 (1951) The States Attorney claimed that two passports means that there is a probability that Melongo is an illegal alien. She is a legal resident of Illinois with a visa. Judge Brosnahan bought this fraudulent speculation in an act of judicial misconduct.

Again, Judge Brosnahan has intentionally and knowingly violated the Illinois and U.S. Constitutions. This is another impeachable act of treason. She clearly is not fit to be a judge.

On May 5, 2010 when attorney J. Nicolas Albukerk argued for reduction to an I-Bond again or a reasonably low bail, Judge Brosnahan reduced the bail on the computer tampering charge to $300,000, again grossly excessive and again it will ensure that Melongo remains in jail for the next half year until she is brought to trial.

Again, Judge Brosnahan has intentionally and willingly violated the Constitution, which is an impeachable act of treason. She clearly is not fit to be a judge.

In April and again now on May 5, 2010 Attorney Albukerk moved for the court to declare Melongo indigent and pay his attorney fees. Brosnahan entered and continued the motion in April and has continued the motion again yesterday. She says her reason in doing so is that although Melongo is legally indigent because this reporter has written on the Internet about this story and stated that her supporters are trying to raise funds with a plea for donations, that this plea for donations is evidence that she can pay for an attorney. This is perhaps Brosnahan’s most egregious impeachable act of treason to day.

Judge Brosnahan has trashed the Constitution and is displaying to the world the incompetence of Cook County Judges, and now can be said to be aiding and abetting the gross and unconstitutional harassment of a federal witness, Melongo, which is a federal felony, as well as is committing intentionally and willingly felony violation of Melongo’s constitutional rights in retaliating against her for this writer’s  publications on Examiner.com.

This is an astonishing penalty on the exercise of my constitutional rights. Every journalist in this country should be outraged and should rally to help Ms. Melongo. Brosnahan has crossed over the line in trashing the Constitution so blatantly. For a judge to ignore the basic constitutional law as to freedom of the press, due process, excessive bail, probable cause, right to counsel despite indigency is beyond the pale and calls for swift and aggressive action to remove her from the court as incompetent and dangerous to the administration of justice.

The 1st Amendment has been violated in giving an illegal penalty on the exercise of my right to freedom of the press. The 5th and 14th Amendments have been violated in arrested and holding Melongo for trial without  probable cause.

Judge Mary Margaret Brosnahan suspends habeas laws

with one comment


Habeas corpus is the last defense a citizen has against unlawful arrest without probable cause and wrongful conviction. This “grand writ” (or the most important kind of court order) has long historical roots from pre-colonial days in England. It means that the tables are turned and the State must justify keeping a person in custody.

Originally a feature of English law, the writ of habeas corpus has historically been an important legal instrument safeguarding individual freedom against arbitrary state action. When the police falsely arrest you, seize you without probable cause, jail you on charges that are not part of the penal code simply to harass and inconvenience or for political reasons, hold you in jail without charging you, refuse to release you once your sentence has been served, convict you when you are actually innocent, then this is when a person needs the “grand writ”.

The United States Constitution,  guarantees a right to habeas corpus – to be brought before the court promptly and the State forced to justify why they are holding you as legal. This was re-inforced recently in the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Guantanemo Bay detainees, Boumediene v. Bush, who had been denied the right to petition for habeas corpus. The U.S. S. Ct ruled that the grand writ cannot be suspended in their case.

The United States Constitution specifically included the English common law procedure in the Suspension Clause, located in Article One, Section 9. It states:

The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it.

The right to petition a court for a writ (order) of habeas corpus has long been celebrated as the most efficient safeguard of the liberty of the subject. It has been used to force a prison to release a person when their sentence is over, to force a person’s release after arrest when the State has failed to charge them in a timely fashion, and to protect a person from arbitrary and unjustified arrest and incarceration.

Illinois law mandates that a judge hear a petition for habeas corpus promptly. It can be filed by an attorney, by the prisoner, or by a “person appearing on behalf of another” AKA “next friend” under federal habeas law.  There is no requirement that the prisoner be incapacitated for a next friend to file a petition for habeas corpus under Illinois law.  Habeas corpus is latin and literally means “We command that you have the body [bring the person to the court]”.

The law states:

 “Unless it shall appear from the complaint itself, or from the documents thereto annexed, that the party can neither be discharged, admitted to bail nor otherwise relieved, the court shall forthwith award relief by habeas corpus.” 735 ILCS 5/10-106

This order awarding relief simply means that the Sheriff holding the person in custody must bring them to the court and the state must  provide documents, evidence, and witnesses that justify holding the person in custody. The court must “examine” the reasons for holding the  person in custody to determine if the custody is lawful.

“Upon the return of an order of habeas corpus [bringing the body also known as the defendant to the court], the court shall, without delay, proceed to examine the cause of the imprisonment or restraint, but the examination may be adjourned from time to time as circumstances require.” 735 ILCS 5/10-119

If a judge refuses to hear a petition for habeas corpus or refuses to grant the relief (order the person to be brought before the court) there is a penalty that may be obtained from the judge.

“Any judge empowered to grant relief by habeas corpus who shall corruptly refuse to grant the relief when legally applied for in a case where it may lawfully be granted, or who shall for the purpose of oppression unreasonably delay the granting of such relief shall, for every such offense, forfeit to the prisoner or party affected a sum not exceeding $1,000.” 735 ILCS 5/10-106

The Illinois Attorney General or the State’s Attorney is required by law to prosecute the judge to collect this penalty.

“All the pecuniary forfeitures incurred under this Act shall inure to the use of the party for whose benefit the order of habeas corpus was entered, and shall be sued for and recovered with costs, by the Attorney General or State’s Attorney, in the name of the State, by complaint; and the amount, when recovered, shall, without any deduction, be paid to the party entitled thereto.” 735 ILCS 5/10-133

The Cook County Circuit Court local rule 15.2 states that “a person appearing on behalf of another” who files a petition for habeas corpus must appear “before the presiding judge.” That is how the habeas petition is initiated.

Cook County Circuit Court Rule 15.2

 (c) Petitioner without funds and without attorney.

(i) If the petition states the petitioner is without funds and the petitioner is not represented by an attorney, he shall submit a verified petition to the clerk. The clerk shall docket the petition and place it on the call of the presiding judge.

(ii) If the presiding judge finds that petitioner is without an attorney and without funds, the presiding judge shall appoint an attorney to represent the petitioner.

(d) Petition on behalf of another.A person signing a petition for writ of habeas corpus on behalf of another shall appear before the presiding judge in open court and may be examined as to his interest in or relation to the person on whose behalf the petition is presented.

On April 20, 2010 Dr. Linda Shelton filed two habeas petitions on behalf of Annabel Melongo, who is being held in county jail on excessive bail without probable cause. Judge Brosnahan has refused to hear motions to quash the charges based on lack of probable cause.

The first habeas petition concerns a charge of computer tampering, where Melongo is accused of accessing the computers of Save-A-Life-Foundation (now closed) and erasing all of their financial records. Computer IP numbers are like telephone numbers and identify the computers dialed from and called. Internet provider records are like telephone company records that prove what IP (v. telephone) numbers were dialed from and called. This is an accurate record.

The forensic computer examiner, Shahna G. Monge, who supposedly worked for the Illinois Attorney General’s office has disappeared. Her report claims that Melongo had an IP address (computer address unique to Internet Service provider) from Comcast. They said that address was used to remotely access the SALF computers. Yet Melongo did not use Comcast. She had an Internet provider contract with SBC.  The Illinois Attorney General’s office and the detectives on the case claim that Monge will not testify.  How do they have a case against Melongo when their “expert” who claims she had evidence against Melongo won’t testify? Where is the evidence?  Melongo has her SBC account bills to prove what she says and Comcast claims they have no records tied to Melongo.

A subpoena to Comcast, which the forensic computer examiner said was the Internet provider which had records of the SALF computer being tampered with produced a report from Comcast that Melongo did not have an IP computer number (address) with them and there was no record she remotely accessed the SALF IP number (address). Therefore, since the police report states that SALF IP number was accessed via Comcast from an IP number registered with Comcast, there is NO possibility that Melongo was the offender. 

Melongo had a contract for Internet services through SBC.  IP addresses unlike telephone numbers are UNIQUE to the Internet provider.  Therefore, there is no probable cause and charging Melongo and keeping her in custody on an outrageous bail is illegal and unconstitutional and violates her civil rights. The 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that a person cannot be seized (arrested) without probable cause, nor can they be tried without probable cause.

Melongo has been going to court monthly while out on a $10,000 personal recognizance bail for three years fighting this accusation. The State has still failed to give her discovery (evidence) of the accusation that ties her with tampering with any computer. Statutory criminal procedure has not even been followed. She was at a job interview when she was supposedly arraigned. She confronted the court reporter with this fact and asked them why they falsified the court transcript saying she was there, when the attorney would testify she was not there. The attorney was so inadequate in representation that she fired him and represented herself for the last couple years.

Judge Brosnahan is so biased against Melongo (she is a dual citizen of Cameroon and Hait and has a heavy accent and writes legal papers very professionally and accurately), that she ordered a fitness exam to simply harass her (she has been declared fit after the exam) and has refused to date to have a hearing on Melongo’s motions to dismiss for lack of probable cause and fraud upon the court by the State (in claiming they have evidence when they don’t).

Melongo made a web site that details the charges, the players, and has scanned in all the evidence they gave her and the evidence she has that  proves her innocence. She designed this web site as a professional information technology consultant. She has nothing to hide. The State has lots to hide!

On the web site she has posted the recordings and transcripts of phone conversations she had with the court reporter. She wanted to document what she suspected was their criminal conduct in falsely writing in the transcripts that she was in court when “arraigned” when she actually wasn’t there.

Illlinois has a felony eavesdropping law that makes it a crime to record someone without their permission. There is an exception in that if one thinks they are recording evidence of a crime, they cannot be prosecuted. Melongo wrote on her web site that she thought the court reporters had falsified records and recorded the conversations under this exception to the law. She even states so on her web site.

Now the State has arrested and incarcerate Melongo for an additional charge of eavesdropping, although it is clear the exception applies in this case so there is no probable cause.

On April 20, 2010 after her bail was revoked due to violation of bail (being arrested again) Melongo was brought before Judge Brosnahan. Judge Brosnahan was told that Melongo has no criminal background except for the pending computer tampering charge. She was told Melongo is a dual citizen of Cameroon and Haiti and has a legal visa. She was told that Melongo had diligently appeared in court at all hearings that she was informed about for three years.

The prosecutor claimed she was a huge “flight risk” because she might be illegal and therefore they contacted immigration which put a “hold” on her so they could investigate. The prosecutor said she is “dangerous” because she tampered with a computer.  The defense attorney J. Nicolas Albukerk said this is all ridiculous as she has proven over three years NOT to be a flight risk and having dual citizenship does not make her a danger to anyone.  Albukerk noted that having dual citizenship is not a crime and does not make anyone an illegal immigrant. He noted that none of these alleged acts were crimes of violence and the eavesdropping charge had NOTHING to do with any threats or violence.

Judge Brosnahan in an outrageous act of judicial misconduct set bail at $500,000. This violates the constitution’s requirement that bail be reasonable.  Melongo is not rich. She has almost no resourcs left as no one will hire her over the last three years with a computer tampering charge pending. 

A call has gone out to Camerooneans in America for assistance to fight this injustice. Judge Brosnahan has no jurisdiction in these cases as there is no probable cause. Without probable  cause the charges are not valid and the indictments are void. To be held in jail on a $500,000 bail without probable cause is outrageous, illegal, unconstitutional and reveals that Judge Brosnahan is not fit to be a judge. She is continually violating the constitution and Melongo’s civil rights. She should be removed from the bench.

Judge Biebel was not available to hear the habeas petitions, so the criminal clerk called the Judge filling in for him – Judge Joseph Kazmierski.  In an act of judicial misconduct Judge Kazmierski refused to hear the habeas petition and said it was “not before him” because the case was assigned to Judge Brosnahan.

Shelton went to Judge Brosnahan’s courtroom, following the clerk who brought the files to the judge.  Judge Brosnahan, in an act of judicial misconduct REFUSED to hear the habeas petitions stating “you have no standing . . . only a lawyer or the defendant has standing . . . kick her out of the courtroom.”  Shelton protested, trying to get this rogue and ignorant judge to read the law and follow the law, without success and was kicked out of the courtroom.

Shelton went to Judge Kazmierski and asked him to order Judge Brosnahan to hear the petitions. He refused saying he had no standing to do so. He was derelict in his duties as a judge in refusing to hear the petitions for habeas corpus. The habeas corpus petitions were new civil cases according to the Illinois Code of Civil Procedures and according to Circuit Court Rules he should have heard them and issued a habeas order to bring the defendant to court to determine if she was being legally held.

Both Judge Kazmierski and Judge Brosnahan therefore committed an act of knowingly violating statutory law which the U.S. Supreme Court has declared to be an act of treason.

Judicial Trespassers of the law

The Illinois Supreme Court has held that “if the magistrate has not such jurisdiction, then he and those who advise and act with him, or execute his process, are trespassers.” Von Kettler et.al. v. Johnson, 57 Ill. 109 (1870)

Under Federal law which is applicable to all states, the U.S. Supreme Court stated that if a court is “without authority, its judgments and orders are regarded as nullities. They are not voidable, but simply void; and form no bar to a recovery sought, even prior to a reversal in opposition to them. They constitute no justification; and all persons concerned in executing such judgments or sentences, are considered, in law, as trespassers.” Elliot v. Piersol, 1 Pet. 328, 340, 26 U.S. 328, 340 (1828)

The Illinois Supreme Court held that if a court “could not hear the matter upon the jurisdictional paper presented, its finding that it had the power can add nothing to its authority, – it had no authority to make that finding.” The People v. Brewer, 128 Ill. 472, 483 (1928). The judges listed below had no legal authority (jurisdiction) to hear or rule on certain matters before them. They acted without any jurisdiction.

When judges act when they do not have jurisdiction to act, or they enforce a void order (an order issued by a judge without jurisdiction), they become trespassers of the law,and are engaged in treason (see below).

The Court in Yates v. Village of Hoffman Estates, Illinois, 209 F.Supp. 757 (N.D. Ill. 1962) held that “not every action by a judge is in exercise of his judicial function. … it is not a judicial function for a judge to commit an intentional tort even though the tort occurs in the courthouse.”

When a judge acts as a trespasser of the law, when a judge does not follow the law, the judge loses subject-matter jurisdiction and the judge’s orders are void, of no legal force or effect.

The U.S. Supreme Court, in Scheuer v. Rhodes, 416 U.S. 232, 94 S.Ct. 1683, 1687 (1974) stated that “when a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the Federal Constitution”, he “comes into conflict with the superior authority of that Constitution, and he is in that case stripped of his official or representative character and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The State has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States.” [Emphasis supplied in original].

By law, a judge is a state officer.The judge then acts not as a judge, but as a private individual (in his person).

Violation of judge’s oath of office

In Illinois, 705 ILCS 205/4 states “Every person admitted to practice as an attorney and counselor at law shall, before his name is entered upon the roll to be kept as hereinafter provided, take and subscribe an oath, substantially in the following form:

‘I do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be), that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of Illinois, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of attorney and counselor at law to the best of my ability.'”

In Illinois, a judge must take a second oath of office. Under 705 ILCS 35/2 states, in part, that “The several judges of the circuit courts of this State, before entering upon the duties of their office, shall take and subscribe the following oath or affirmation, which shall be filed in the office of the Secretary of State:

‘I do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that I will support the constitution of the United States, and the constitution of the State of Illinois, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of judge of ______ court, according to the best of my ability.'”

Further, if the judge had enlisted in the U.S. military, then he has taken a third oath. Under Title 10 U.S.C. Section 502 the judge had subscribed to a lifetime oath, in pertinent part, as follows: “I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; …”.

The U.S. Supreme Court has stated that “No state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his undertaking to support it.”. Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U.S. 1, 78 S.Ct. 1401 (1958).

Any judge who does not comply with his oath to the Constitution of the United States wars against that Constitution and engages in acts in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land. The judge is engaged in acts of treason.

Having taken at least two, if not three, oaths of office to support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Illinois, any judge who has acted in violation of the Constitution is engaged in an act or acts of treason (see below).

If a judge does not fully comply with the Constitution, then his orders are void, In re Sawyer, 124 U.S. 200 (1888)

Violating the constitution includes violating the laws of the state of Illinois as the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that when a criminal procedure is statutory, then it invokes the due process clause of the 5th amendment. Violation of the statute by the judge is a violation of federal due process. If this is intentional, then it is “waring” on the constitution.

When a judge violates the law, their orders are void, a nullity.

The law is well-settled that a void order or judgment is void even before reversal. “Courts are constituted by authority and they cannot go beyond that power delegated to them. If they act beyond that authority, and certainly in contravention of it, their judgments and orders are regarded as nullities. They are not voidable, but simply void, and this even prior to reversal.” Vallely v. Northern Fire & Marine Ins. Co.,  254 U.S. 348, 41 S.Ct. 116 (1920)

The elements of lack of jurisdiction may include [issues pertinent to case at bar are in brackets]:

  1. Defective petition [indictment in case at bar is legally insufficient, as no probable cause], Brown v. VanKeuren, 340 Ill. 118, 122 (1930).
  2. Fraud committed in the procurement of jurisdiction [detective told grand jury that Melongo had an IP address with Comcast], Fredman Brothers Furniture v. Dept. of Revenue,  109 Ill.2d 202, 486 N.E.2d 893 (1985).
  3. Fraud upon the court [perjury before the grand jury and law fraudulently presented to grand jury in case at bar], In re Village of Willowbrook, 37 Ill.App.3d 393 (1962).
  4. The court exceeded its statutory authority [State Statutes and constitution do not allow a judge to have jurisdiction when there is no probable cause, also violation of 4th Amendment. ], Resenstiel v. Rosenstiel, 278 Supp. 794 (S.D.N.Y. 1967).
  5. Where a complaint states no cognizable cause of action against the party [no crime as specified by statute is alleged in the fatally flawed indictment obtained through fraud as there is no probable cause], Charles v. Gore, 248 Ill.App.3d 441, 618 N.E.2d 554 (1st Dist. 1993).
  6. Where the public policy of the State of Illinois is violated [constitution is violated when a person is held for trial without probable cause], Martin-Tregona v. Roderick, 29 Ill.App.3d 553, 331 N.E.2d 100 (1st Dist. 1975).

Therefore, Judge Brosnahan has no jurisdiction to preside over a trial of Melongo for computer tampering or for eavesdropping because there is no probable cause and therefore no jurisdiction for a criminal case.

Treason by a judge

Whenever a judge acts where he/she does not have jurisdiction to act, the judge is engaged in an act or acts of treason. U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 S.Ct. 471, 66 L.Ed.2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 5 L.Ed 257 (1821)

The Supreme Court has also held that if a judge wars against the Constitution, or if he acts without jurisdiction, he has engaged in treason to the Constitution.

Courts have repeatedly ruled that judges have no immunity for their criminal acts. No judge has immunity to engage in such acts.

The prosecutor is Cook County States Attorney Anita Alvarez with the assistance of the computer crimes division of the Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan.

Of note:  Lisa Madigan was “friends” with the director of SALF, Carol Spizzirri, and assisted her in obtaining grant money from the State of Illinois through Madigan’s father, Speaker of the Illinois House Michael Madigan. They now cannot account for most of the grant money SALF received from donors including the federal grants. Spizzirri is a know liar and commits fraud. She wrote on her applications for federal grants that she is a nurse, yet she is not a nurse. She has been labeled a pathological liar by Wisconsin courts. Her ex-husband has evidence that their now deceased daughter had an order of protection against Spizzirri.

It is thought by Melongo that they are framing her to cover up the fact that the funds from government for SALF were obtained fraudulently and they do not have financial records to account for them. How convenient to blame Melongo for remotely accessing their computers and “erasing” the data. Where’s the money Spizzirra and Madigan?  The FBI has yet to arrest those involved in this fraud.

Judge Colleen A. Hyland Arrogant Temper-Tantrum

with one comment


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.

Judge James L. Rhodes Finds Deputies Not Credible

with one comment


SHERIFF DEPUTIES COMMIT PERJURY

Cook County Sheriff Deputies Rebecca Doran and Maureen Caliendo, with the full encouragement of Assistant Chief Lyons and the Cook County State’s Attorney falsely arrested Dr. Shelton, maliciously prosecuted Dr. Shelton, for aggravated battery, but Dr. Shelton was found not guilty by a responsible and honest, intelligent judge, Honorable Judge James L. Rhodes, who found the deputies’ testimony “not credible”.

http://cookcountysheriffdeputies.wordpress.com/2009/06/06/deputy-rebecca-doran-deputy-maureen-caliendo-sergeant-patricia-mccollum-assistant-chief-kevin-lyons/

During trial, Hon. Judge Rhodes was fair, listened intently to both sides, weighed the evidence carefully, was intellectually honest, exhibited an impressive ability to see the whole picture, displayed an excellent fund of knowledge about the law, had a calm and reassuring demeanor, kept excellent control of the trial and his courtroom, and asked appropriate questions of the witnesses even when the State or defense failed to ask such questions, in order to clarify the facts. His instructions and speech were clear, polite, and easy to understand.
I highly recommend him as a judge and believe he should be promoted to a position of authority. I believe it is unlikely that he would become corrupt.
