Bail in Illinois is Fraud & Supports a Criminal Enterprise

with one comment


The Circuit Court of Cook County is a criminal enterprise with judges doing illegal acts to support this enterprise. Part of the corruption is ingrained in unconstitutional Illinois statutes written so that the judges could abuse them – surely written under the influence of Cook County corrupt officials. These are the statutes about bail.

The scheme goes like this: Bail laws state that the Cook County Circuit Court Clerk can keep 10 % of bond posted even when one is innocent as a fee for processing the bail. This means if you are innocent and the bail is $1000, the court keeps $10.  If the bail is $1 million, the court keeps $10,000 FOR THE SAME SERVICE!!  This is fraud under federal law. This denies equal protection under the law as a person loses their property (money) under fraudulent circumstances (clerk charges different people different amounts for same service of processing bond) without due process of law – and the judges have an incentive to set outrageous bail amounts. 

For example when a medical biller ties their fee to send in a medical bill to the doctor’s fee by charging by percentage (say 10%) of the doctor’s income, instead of charging per piece of service (per bill say $10) this causes the medical biller to be paid FOR THE DOCTOR’S work. So if the biller works for a surgeon whose average bill is $3,000, they get $300 every time they send in a bill and for the same amount of work if they send in a bill for a psychiatrist of $200, they only keep $20. The US Attorney has convicted medical billers of this fraud upon the State as Medicaid is essentially paying 10 % of the payments to the doctors for their services to the medical biller. The correct thing to do is for the biller to charge a standard fee for each bill no matter how large the bill.

Therefore, through fraud and essentially extortion of defendants, both innocent and guilty, the court clerk funds her office. Then Illinois banned bail bondsmen to make it easier for the clerk to quarantee this fraudulent income.

That is why bail is set so high in Illinois. It is usually exorbitant in order to fund the County office of the Court Clerk. With the present downturn in the economy the bails seem to be increasing!  I have proof that an innocent victim of corruption was wrongfully charged of kicking an officer in the chest with a disabled leg (physically impossible for her) from her wheelchair. She had no prior convictions and is indigent. Bail was set at $100,000.  I also have evidence that bail on several misdemeanor trespass charges was set at $25,000.  We need a federal investigation.

Illinois surely is a criminal enterprise!  Where are the feds?

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”.

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.
