Sheriff & Deputies Indicted for Locking Down Entire School & Sexually Assaulting Kids

A sheriff and multiple deputies have been indicted for locking down an entire school, illegally search 900 students and sexually assaulting many of them in the process.

  

Worth County, GA — In June, violated children and furious parents filed a massive lawsuit after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students, sexually abusing multiple children in the process. Now, after nearly half a year, a grand jury has finally indicted the people responsible for this heinous deprivation of rights.

A south Georgia grand jury indicted Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby on Tuesday for sexual battery, false imprisonment and violation of oath of office after he ordered a school-wide search of hundreds of high school students. Deputies allegedly touched girls vaginas and breasts and groped boys in their groin area during the search at the Worth County High School April 14, reports RARE. 

Two of Hobby’s deputies were also indicted this week in connection with the case.

Norman Crowe Jr., Hobby’s attorney claims the sheriff is innocent and conducted no searches.

“The sheriff’s position is that he’s not guilty,” Crowe said. “He’s committed no crime.”

As the Free Thought Project previously reported, an Atlanta attorney is now representing multiple students who were subjected to invasive and outright horrifying body searches during a mass — and warrantless — search for drugs at a South Georgia high school. Attorney Mark Begnaud, who filed the class-action lawsuit, called out the sheriff for conducting “900 illegal, suspicionless searches.”

“This was a textbook definition of overreach,” said Begnaud. “They pulled 900 students out of class. They did full, hands-on body searches.”

SILICON VALLEY PUBLISHER LAUNCHES NEW PUBLICATION COVERING FAMILY COURT, CIVIL COURT, AND CPS CONTROVERSY

SILICON VALLEY PUBLISHER LAUNCHES NEW PUBLICATION COVERING FAMILY COURT, CIVIL COURT, AND CPS CONTROVERSY

In San Francisco on Sunday October 1 – in the shadow of the California Supreme Court, Judicial Council and Commission on Judicial Performance – the launch party for Ex Parte was held. Pictures are included with this post.

Ex Parte is a new print and online source for legal news and opinion from Silicon Valley publisher Susan J. Bassi. Court watchdog and CJP reform advocate Joe Sweeney will lead the editorial staff.

The publication and website will specialize in investigative reporting on California family, civil and probate courts, and Child Protective Services (CPS).

At the San Francisco kick-off event, court and CPS victims, reporters, editors, attorneys, academics, and funders from throughout the state all met for the first time together, face-to-face. The Ex Parte concept germinated and was developed through social media.

The publisher, editors, and reporters at the start-up news organization assert that they will report on the Judicial Branch controversies and human interest stories often overlooked or ignored by existing legal publications, and the mainstream media.

Among other subjects, Ex Parte reporters will be assigned to investigate civil rights and federal law violations – including racketeering, honest services fraud, and misuse of federal funds – by state court judges, court administrators and employees, lawyers, and state and local CPS workers, according to the publisher.

False Accusations

Woman stripped of son’s custody wins $3 million from LA County – Daily News

LOS ANGELES — A woman stripped of the custody of her son amid allegedly false accusations of neglect by children’s social workers who worked for Los Angeles County was denied punitive damages today, but will still receive more then $3 million in compensatory damages.

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated for about an hour before deciding against assessing punitive damages against social workers Kimberly Rogers and Susan Pender in a lawsuit filed by Rafaelina Duval.

The same panel on Thursday awarded Duval $2.94 million, plus another $165,000 after finding in a separate verdict that she was the victim of discrimination.

Duval alleged that her child, identified in her court papers only as R.D., was taken from her without a warrant in 2010, even though no emergency existed. The jury also found that social workers Pender and Rogers acted with malice toward Duval, triggering the second phase to determine whether either of them should have to pay punitive damages.

The jury found that the county Department of Children and Family Services had “an official custom and/or practice of seizing children from their parents without a warrant” and failed “to enact an official policy or procedure when it should have done so.”

Asked after the verdicts whether she was pleased with the outcome of the case, Duval replied, “Yes and no. Yes, because they have been held accountable, but no, because I still don’t have custody of my child.”

Duval, 41, said she will continue to fight to bring her son home and to advocate for changes in the DCFS so the same thing does not happen to others in her situation.

Attorney Shawn McMillan, on behalf of Duval, told jurors that his client begged the social workers not to take her child, but her plea “fell on deaf ears.”

“Don’t give them more mercy than they gave her,” McMillan said in urging that punitive damages be assessed.

“I Get Along Well With Judges”

“Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice;
nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity.” ~Lord Acton~

In this audio, Tim Kinley and Dede Evavold discuss the rampant judicial misconduct in Dakota County and MN with State Representative Tony Cornish. Cornish is the Chairman of the Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee.

The Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee oversees and funds all areas within public safety, including the court system, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and other corrections and justice programs.

Below are random excerpts from the video

Tim Kinley: It’s the legislature’s job to oversee the judiciary. We’ve got one of the most corrupt courts in the nation and the reason is because MN is able to hide it so well. While alot of other states are finding judges that are getting paid off and doing other things and getting caught and having the legislature deal with it, our state does nothing. They don’t even look at it. There’s been no official hearings since 2004.

Rep. Cornish: To tell you the truth, I’m about the worst person to come and ask because I get along well with judges. So I’m about the worst person in the world to come and ask for a hearing on the claim that our court is corrupt.

Tim Kinley:The problem is, it’s the legislature’s responsibility.

Rep. Cornish: We don’t bring judges in front of us and have tribunals.

Tim Kinley: Why not? You can, you should.

Rep. Cornish: I suppose we can do anything we want to.  As far as a hearing, I can have any type of hearing I want to. I don’t know, I guess we have a big disconnect, I don’t see the corruption that you do.

Tim Kinley: Well you’re not willing to hear about it.

Rep Cornish: I’ve been hearing about it for at least… 2 people came all the way down to Good Thunder to talk about it. I’m sorry I’m just not interested. I don’t want to have a hearing like that.

Tim Kinley: Our structure, as far as judicial discipline and our constitution, is the same as the federal. House hears the case, senate for impeachment and the senate if they impeach, try it. That’s our system, thats in our constitution. It just hasn’t happened.

Rep. Cornish: See, this is the whole thing with me is that the complaints usually come from somebody who felt they were wronged and they want to right it. If they’ve lost a case in our system, I’m supposed to somehow believe the whole system went wrong?

Tim Kinley: Well the whole system here is a prosecutor and judge.

Rep. Cornish: I don’t know what to believe. I think it would just be another case of “he said she said” and everybody would be frustrated and mad on both sides, and we would accomplish nothing.

Tim Kinley: Checks and balances. It is a separate branch of government, but each branch has a checks and balance. The checks and balance on the judiciary is nonexistent from the legislature. When you’ve got a Board of Judicial Standards that’s beholden to the Judiciary, they all get their licenses from the Supreme Court, you can’t say anything bad about the court. It’s just unbelievable that you have over 400 and some judges in the state and over the last one hundred years none of them have done anything wrong? It’s just impossible, the odds are against it.
