My Discovery Review Hearing was held on May 12, 2016 at Dakota County Court in Hastings, MN. It was scheduled for 9:00 AM however, mine was the last hearing on the docket after 12 other hearings. It actually took place at 12:15 PM.
In summary, it’s kind of hard to have a discovery review hearing when your discovery is being illegally withheld from you.
Below is what I submitted to the Judicial Selection Committee today to report the illegal withholding of my data/discovery in rigged Case No. 19HA-CR-15-4227 State Of Minnesota VS Deirdre Elise Evavold.

Signed criminal complaint against Prokopowicz, Backstrom and Keena
04-29-16 fraudulent bill.
Probable cause, and scheduling order for: 19HA-CR-15-4227
Lee Sheehy, Chair – Minnesota Commission on Judicial Selection: If you want a corrupt Dakota County judge who thinks and acts like they are above the rules and the laws, then Chief Deputy Dakota County Attorney Phillip Prokopowicz is the perfect corrupt candidate for you, isn’t he? My name is Dede Evavold and I have been forced to file a criminal complaint against not only Chief Deputy Dakota County Attorney Phillip Prokopowicz, but also Dakota County Dakota Co. Attorneys James Backstrom and Kathryn Keena for willfully refusing to obey the Minnesota Statutes chapter 13 data practices laws, the rules and the Model policies established by the Commissioner of Administration and for willfully and illegally withholding readily available, free, electronic data/discovery from me in rigged Case No. 19HA-CR-15-4227 State Of Minnesota VS Deirdre Elise “Dede” Evavold.

In fact, I just recently received a second harassing letter which contained a fraudulent bill from Prokopowicz and his criminal cohorts. I can tell the bill is fraudulent because the costs are not actual costs, the bill is not itemized to justify the costs nor does it reveal the sizes of the electronic files which are to be snail mailed to me. I am aware that Dakota County contracts with a consortium called LOGIS. LOGIS has a file sharing called LOGIS File Management Sytem. Prokopowicz could have easily emailed me a link to download all my readily available, free, electronic discovery (in searchable pdf format where applicable) months ago. It should be noted that in late April I did receive readily available, free, electronic public data via email from the Dakota County Elections dept. The Dakota County Elections dept, emailed me the affidavits of candidacy in pdf format for the Dakota County Commissioners [Egan, Thomas-County Commissioner #3.pdf, Gaylord, Kathleen (County Commissioner #2).pdf, Gerlach, Chris-County Commissioner #7.pdf, Holberg, Mary Liz (County Commissioner #6).pdf, Schouweiler, Nancy-County Commissioner #4.pdf, Slavik, Mike (County Commissioner #1).pdf, Workman, Liz-County Commissioner #5.pdf] Apparently, Prokopowicz’s plan is to force me to plead guilty without ever seeing my evidence. Whoever said that trial by ambush doesn’t exist in Dakota County doesn’t want to see the trail by ambush. See attached signed criminal complaint against Prokopowicz, Backstrom and Keena and attached 04-29-16 fraudulent bill.
The document was postmarked May 2nd, 2016. I did not actually receive this until May 4th, 2016.
Not only does Chief Deputy Dakota County Attorney Phillip Prokopowicz think and act like he is above the laws of the state and the rules and model policies established by the Commissioner of Administration but he has shown that same contempt for the rules of the Dakota County court, hasn’t he? Maybe that explains why both Samantha and Gianna Rucki ran away from the rigged Dakota County courts? Prokopowicz’s contempt for the rules of the court and the special treatment given to the Dakota County’s so-called prosecutors by the rigged Dakota county court has provided me clear, precise and unquestionable proof that only I am required to follow the rules of the rigged court and the laws in lawless Dakota county, hasn’t it? Did you know that Prokopowicz was afraid that I was going to put the court on trial? All I had to do was simply point out the blatantly obvious, right? Prokopowicz nor his cohorts handed my discovery prior to nor at my May 12, 2016 hearing. Were Prokopowicz or his cohorts sanctioned or even reprimanded by the court for willfully defying a court order that stated that all my discovery was to given to me prior to the May 12, 2016 hearing? No! Instead, I was reprimanded by the judge for not bowing down to petty whims of common criminals who I was forced to file a criminal complaint against. I just have more clear, precise and unquestionable evidence for trial by ambush, don’t I? See attached Probable cause, and scheduling order for: 19HA-CR-15-4227.
I have a reasonable suspicion that the only way that I would ever get the readily available, free, electronic discovery/evidence in my case is by wasting even more of my valuable time and even more of my valuable resources on a federal lawsuit. Why would I think that? Because it is a matter of the public record that attorney Michelle MacDonald was forced to file a federal lawsuit against Dakota County to get the evidence (Case No. 19HA-CR-13-2934 State of Minnesota vs Michelle MacDonald Shimota) from her case back. It was a case in which the criminal case was dismissed because of an illegal search of her camera. Plus, The sheriff and the county attorney wilfully refused to obey a court order to return the camera. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
I did report this obstruction of justice to District 4 – Commissioner Nancy Schouweiler. (Calls recorded) However, Schouweiler lawyered up said she had no intention of investigating the misuse of public funds nor the misconduct of the public officials at the Dakota County Attorney’s office. To protect myself and others, I am going to continue to educate the public that they cannot trust any arrest, prosecution nor conviction in lawless Dakota County. Again, If you want a corrupt Dakota County judge who thinks and acts like they are above the rules and the laws, then Chief Deputy Dakota County Attorney Phillip Prokopowicz is the perfect corrupt candidate for you.
All discovery shall be exchanged to the settlement conference. Probable cause, and scheduling order for: 19HA-CR-15-4227. Signed by Karen Asphaug 3-1-16
