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.

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.

Peck Bloom, LLC
105 W Adams St Floor 31
Chicago IL 60603-6227

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.

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

Judge John Fleming – Supports Corrupt Police

with 2 comments


Circuit Court of Cook County Judge John Fleming continued the tradition of letting the police get away with anything and sentenced Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate, a 250 lb man, who brutally beat a 125 lb female bartender and was convicted of aggravated battery to only two years probation and NO prison time. The woman now suffers post-traumatic-stress, nightmares, and great fear.

This is another example of the outrageous favoratism towards cops and official misconduct of Cook County judges. They let officers lie through their teeth and even when they are caught red-handed on tape in criminal activity, they get away with it. Abbate even is still claiming he is innocent and the woman started the fight!! He shows no remorse! – And the judge didn’t take this into consideration?

The man was clearly seen on surveillance video from the bar in this aggravated battery against a defenseless and tiny woman. What more do you need to convince the judge that giving him a slap on the wrist condones this conduct?

Failure to jail this dirtbag gives the message that drunkenness excuses behavior, police can get away with anything, there is a double standard regarding police v. average citizens, and that Chicago remains as corrupt as ever. It depricates the seriousness of the offense and gives the green light to other officers to abuse citizens.

For another opinion see: http://radiochicagoland.blogspot.com/2009/06/fire-judge-john-j-fleming-and-jail.html

Until the public votes out those in office that condone this outrageous behavior of not just police, but more so of the courts such as Stroger, Daleys, Madigans, Dart, Beavers, Jones, Steele, and all their cronies, Chicago, C[r]ook County, and Illinois will remain lawless where the officials use citizens as their slaves and puppets in total disregard for humanity, for their own profit and fame. Deals will still be made behind closed doors and transparency will be hypothetical only.

I was beaten and choked by Sheriff Sgt. Anthony Salemi, he falsified his records, accused me of attacking him, committed perjury and I was wrongfully convicted. I received a two year prison sentence, served the sentence and parole before I was allowed to appeal in violation of the constitution. Fed. Judge Coar has even ruled that the IL Appellate Court is impeding my appeal! I am disabled and was abused and medically neglected in prison. Torture is the appropriate word. I am a non-violent pacifist. I have no prior record! I am a whistle blower against corrupt officials and police in Cook County, IL. This attack on me was retaliation for my complaints of corruption. I’m sure, if there is justice, the conviction will be overturned shortly,  and then I will bring the mother of all civil rights suits against this creep, the creeps that support him such as Sheriff Inv. Sofus, and Sheriff Dart.

There is no equal treatment here!  The Circuit Court of Cook County is a criminal enterprise. The U.S. Attorney should make indictments against these corrupt officials and police for felony violation of civil rights under color of law.

I hope the woman wins a huge award in her civil suit against him! I applaud CPD Supt. Jody Weiss in seeking his dismissal from the CPD. I just want to ask Supt. Weiss – Why won’t you have a meeting with me? The CPD beat me several times illegally, while I was in a wheelchair! I have pictures and your dept. of professional responsibity (internal affairs) did nothing!! I’ve requested meetings and you haven’t even had the courtesy to respond to me.

Dr. Shelton Appeals Wrongful Conviction Due to Misconduct of Judge Kazmierski

leave a comment »


I have now filed my Illinois Appellate Court appeal of my wrongful conviction for aggravated battery of a correctional officer. Sgt. Anthony Salemi had attacked me, falsified his records, committed perjury, and with the help of Nifong-like prosecutorial misconduct of ASAs Andrew Dalkin and John Maher and extreme judicial misconduct by Judge Joseph Kazmierski, I was convicted and sentenced to two years in the Illinois Dept. of Corrections plus one year of mandatory supervised release.

I served the minimum 6 months and the full supervised release and was not able to appeal due to illegal conduct of staff at the Cook County Dept. of Corrections and Illinois Dept. of Corrections where I was held and due to damage to my health requiring several hospitalizations within the last year since my release on March 27, 2008 from prison. The damage to my health was a result of torture at the CCDOC and IDOC by ignorant, sociopathic, poorly trained officers and incompetent medical staff (with the exception of Dr. Baker). The social workers even told me they purposely were told not to allow me to use the law library. My medications were withheld in illegal acts of willful indifference to medical needs.

I have informed the FBI and asked them to prosecute for felony conspiracy to violate rights under color of law, etc.

I will never forget the comment to me at CCDOC by Sgt. Molevetti “We got you on one made charge so I can write anything I want and get you on another.” Officer Levy said the same thing. It appears that falsification of records is common practice at CCDOC. We need to take him down and jail him too!

As soon as I win this one, the mother of all civil rights suits will be filed against these creeps. Any officer who has aided and abetted this wrongful conviction is a target in my book to be arrested, removed as an officer, and jailed for felony conspiracy to violate rights under color of law under federal law.

I strongly suggest that ANY officer or CCDOC staff who has knowledge about this wrongful conviction march over to the FBI on Roosevelt Road, ask for a duty agent and confess and turn in the corrupt officers and sergeants. The time is NOW to clean up the CCDOC and get rid of decayed and dead wood! If you don’t turn them in, you are part of the corruption and are condoning it! I have no sympathy for you!

You can read my appeal and the evidence of innocence and Sgt. Salemi’s guilt along with the incompetence of Inv. Sofus, as well as the prosecutorial misconduct at: https://cookcountyjudges.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/appeal-brief-for-publication-6-10-09.doc

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.

Impeach Judge Joseph Kazmierski – Prosecute States Attorneys Andrew Dalkin and John Maher

with 2 comments


Judge Kazmierski presided over a trial where I as a disabled non-violent pacifist who was wrongfully jailed for criminal contempt by a rogue judge, Kathleen Pantle, four weeks after I won an injunction against Cook County Sheriff Sheahan for violation of FOIA where he was concealing the fact that he was in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, was fraudulently charged with aggravated battery of a correctional officer, Sgt. Anthony Salemi.

Dishonorable Judge Kazmierski violated every aspect of due process, in that he:

  1. Permitted the case to proceed despite a legally insufficient indictment,
  2. Permitted clearly perjured testimony testimony by the state witnesses and then at sentencing when witnesses clearly impeached the statements of ALL state witnesses at trial he failed to declare me innocent not-with-standing the verdict,
  3. Permitted introduction of tampered evidence,
  4. Permitted the Nifong-like prosecutor to make statements banned by a motion in limine, testify as an expert during closing, denigrate the defense expert witness in contradiction to the facts and testimony,
  5. Failed to enforce subpoenas for key defense evidence,
  6. Permitted the trial to proceed after State destruction of weapon of crime – broken wheelchair allegedly used as a weapon (unable to show jury that the “weapon” didn’t work),
  7. Failed to allow jury instructions about spoilation of evidence,
  8. Failure to pay for expert witnesses for indigent defendant,
  9. Failure to hold evidentiary hearing on issue of perjury of sole grand jury witness,
  10. Denial of defendant’s right to present specific defenses,
  11. Permitted the prosecutor to mistate the law to the jury,
  12. Pemitting the prosecutor to blatantly and repeatedly mischaracterize the evidence to the jury at closing,
  13. Denial of offers of proof,
  14. Illegal repeatedly sustaining baseless prosecutorial objections thereby preventing defense counsel from questioning key witness who was necessary to introduce documents to impeach state witnesses, thus not permitting defense to impeach witnesses with evidence of falsification of records,
  15. Failure to permit defendant to hear side-bars,
  16. Denial of defendants right to self-representation, and
  17. Revoked my bail based on a false arrest and perjured testimony of Sheriff deputies who stated I failed to go through security at a courthouse on October 10, 2007, when in fact the surveillance video revealed I successfully passed through security, but Judge Kazmierski REFUSED to look at the surveillance video. The prosecutors suborned this perjury because they had possession of this video tape and knew that the deputies were lying.

The proof of all of the above is contained in my Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus now before the Federal District Court, Judge Coar – see link below for details. The state has waived the requirement to exhaust state remedies because even though the trial judge declared me indigent and ordered the court reporter to prepare two sets of transcripts (records of proceedings) and deliver one to the court clerk for preparation regarding the appeal, the Illinois Appellate Court has denied motions to compel court reporters to prepare and deliver transcripts to the Circuit Court of Cook County Clerk. The corut reporters are still refusing to prepare and file the transcripts with the clerk. Therefore, the Illinois Appellate Court after more than a year is actively and intentionally impeeding my direct appeal in violation of my federal constitutional rights.

The Nifong-like prosecutors are Assistant Cook County State’s Attorneys Andrew Dalkin and John Maher. They suborned perjury and withheld evidence, as well as tampered with evidence as described in the petition below. Both should be disbarred and arrested for felony obstuction of justice and conspiracy to violate civil rights under color of law.

In fact, I had been assaulted and battered by Cook County Department of Corrections Sergeant Salemi on May 16, 2005. He falsified his records, and he knowingly wrongfully filed a criminal complaint against me falsely alleging I attacked him, in retaliation for my complaining about the Cook County Department of Corrections violating my civil rights. He stated when he entered my cell after sending away the female unit officer, I attacked him while in a wheelchair and forcing my way through the door by ramming him with my wheelchair “skinning his shins” and then after this knocked him down and he stood up, “kicking him in the chest with my RIGHT leg.” This is despite the fact that I have partial right hemiparesis with impairment of my right leg so that I can not kick it with force above the waist, the wheelchair was broken and difficult to move, I have congenital injury to the spine causing life-long weak arms and shoulders making it difficult to move the wheelchair forcefully, and I was on the sixth day of a dry hunger strike, intensely dehydrated and unable to stand for more than a few moments due to weakness from the dehydration. My physicians gave unrebutted testimony affirming these facts, which was unrebutted by the State. I was wrongfully convicted because of a biased jury. The jury became biased because of extreme Nifong-like prosecutorial misconduct by Assistant States Attorneys Andrew Dalkin and John Maher, and by outrageous denial of due process and abuse of judicial discretion by Judge Joseph Kazmierski, all of which grossly denied me a fair trial. I was illegally sentenced to prison instead of probation, in violation of Cunningham v. California, 127 S. Ct. 856 (2007), and the Statutes of the State of Illinois. Therefore, I was required to serve at least half the time minus 6 months per Illinois law. I was denied a stay of sentence pending appeal. I was illegally abused and punished for refusing to walk (IDOC staff falsely claiming I was faking my multiple medical conditions and physical handicap) during the reception process, including a life-threatening assault on me with an ammonia inhalant (purportedly given to prove I was faking a collapse and asthma attack), but which exacerbated the attack, caused brief unconsciousness and is contraindicated in asthma, as well as denial of medical care. The IDOC staff are attempting to conceal the documents about my reception events at IDOC in order to cover-up their official misconduct and ADA violations, in refusing to release the reception summary to me.
