Red Herring Alert

There's something fishy going on!

SHOCKING!

It came as no surprise that the MN Court of Appeals rubber stamped the decision of the Dakota County District Court in my case no. 19HA-CR-15-4227 State of Minnesota vs Deirdre Elise Evavold.

Criminal appeals are handled by a battery of anonymous law clerks who know that they have to uphold the conviction no matter what. They write memos for the judges that are mostly if not entirely based on the prosecution brief and they draft the  decisions affirming the conviction.

The opinion affirmed the fact that illegally withholding and suppressing evidence, witness tampering, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct, obstruction of justice and trial by ambush is perfectly acceptable, and in fact, encouraged.

Remember, a jury verdict is only as fair as the trial, and in this case as well as the companion cases, a fair trial or appeal was never going to happen!

The tragic reality is that you can be a law abiding citizen and have your freedom and rights taken away under the current  system. The bright side is that many people are waking up and when you’re aware of the operation you can defeat it!

 

 

Comment on Corruption of the judiciary: Where do we go for help?

I was a lawyer, fought judicial corruption in three Texas Counties and at the highest levels of government. I am no longer a lawyer. We are well beyond citing proper law my friends. I investigated, documented and testified in state courts, appellate courts, the Texas Supreme Court, regarding the corruption and I am an expert on recognizing and documenting corruption. What I can tell you is we are at war my fellow commoners, at war! The enemy is just not coming to our shores with tanks and planes, but surreptitiously has taken over our government, one office at a time, one judge position at a time, one court clerk position at a time and it is only going to get far worse, before it gets better. When someone is overly arrogant and seems not worried about the courts or law enforcement, you will know why soon enough. The arrogance gives it away and the refusal and disrespect for the law does as well. They will not enforce the laws, investigate or prosecute and they will continue to permit the pillaging, while slowly changing the laws till we all find ourselves in Nazi America. Drastic times require drastic measures. See you on the front lines.

19-Year Old Forges Ahead

Annelise Rice

Annelise Rice, a hockey player at UND and graduate of Minnetonka High School, filed a lawsuit on March 17, 2017, in Minnesota federal court seeking damages for deprivation of civil rights by tortuous intervention in a mother-child relationship and deprivation of rights under color of the law (Civil Action No. 17-cv-796 ADM/HB).

 

As expected, U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery dismissed the case on September 19, 2017. Annelise will be appealing to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“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.

MINNESOTA: COME ON VACATION-STAY ON PROBATION

Yes, Minnesota has a low prison population, but that’s not the whole story

__________________________________
Policymakers often cite Minnesota’s low prison population, but the state also has one of the highest rates of probation in the country — a restrictive punishment that often serves as a back door to incarceration.

A familiar argument broke out at the Minnesota Legislature recently.

The committee on public safety was debating a bill that would make it a felony to tamper with a police car, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Rep. Raymond Dehn, a DFLer, commented on the number of similar bills the committee had been hearing, turning lower charges into more serious ones likely to feed the prison population.

If the goal is simply to lock more people up, Dehn said, “I just question why we call this a public safety committee.”

Rep. Tony Cornish, Committee Chair~Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance

His Republican colleague, Rep. Tony Cornish, swiftly chimed in that he doesn’t mind sending more people to prison if they deserve it. Besides, said Cornish, “we’re still very near the bottom on incarceration per capita in Minnesota.” My comments in red (Hey Tony, who decides if they deserve it? Oh yeah, the judicial mafia that’s who!)

COMING SOON: Audio on Cornish’s views regarding judicial and prosecutorial misconduct.

This is a common refrain in discussions about prison policy. And Cornish is right: Minnesota’s incarceration rate is one of the lowest in the United States.

But that’s not the whole story. Minnesota also claims one of the highest rates of people on probation in the country. One reason this matters is that people on probation or supervised release — Minnesota’s version of parole — frequently do end up in prison for “technical violations,” such as missing meetings with a supervision officer or failing drug tests. Last year, two-thirds of the state’s prison admissions were there because of technical violations.

Critics like Rep. Marion O’Neill, R-Maple Lake, think it’s time for that to change. Last week, O’Neill brought advocates in to testify on a proposal in the House that would mandate supervision officers to look for alternatives to prison when non-violent drug offenders commit technical violations.

Below is my alleged probation violation

Judge Asphaug has already had me serve more time than 80% of her perpetrators of sexual violence against children.

See Dangerous State of Justice  I don’t know about you, but this looks a lot like retaliation to me! See Appeal Reply Brief Evavold

Judge Karen Asphaug

Judge Asphaug stated I was “motivated by political ill will and distrust of government.”

At the sentencing hearing Judge Asphaug once again stated, “The mother perhaps was motivated by animosity or malice towards the father. Perhaps her motivation was a misplaced belief (or misplaced evidence) that the girls weren’t safe, but what motivated you to become involved? Not to become involved in, but to intrude into the life of another family? Not friendship for the girls or with the girls: You never met them before the day they were taken from their home. Not friendship with their mother because you knew her only briefly. We’re left to wonder if you were motivated by political persuasion, by distrust of the courts, by a desire to pursue an activist agenda of some sort.”

What’s really interesting is that my probation officer has never even addressed this false order in any of my face-to-face meetings and suddenly, I’m violating probation? This comes on the heels of the false HRO that was filed against me and signed by Judge Asphaug. → NOTICE OF OBJECTIŌNE

Clearly, my probation is being supervised by Judge Asphaug and the Communitiy Corrections staff are “just following orders”. Also, below is an email regarding my psychological evaluation that suddently and mysteriously doesn’t seem to meet probation requirements.

Subject: CASE NO. 19HA-CR-15-4227

Greg,

I have completed my psychological evaluation which was approved by Natalie Christensen, Dakota County Community Corrections (see attachment). I was told that I was to complete an MMPI with an interview afterwards, which I did.

I’m curious as to why there was ex-parte communication with the judge and why this was flagged by a probation officer months after the acceptance of the evaluation.

A neutral evaluator found nothing wrong with my cognitive abilities or mental health. My concern is that something is needing to be found by Gregory Hanson, PhD, LP who is a for-profit evaluator under contract with Dakota County.

Also, Gregory Hanson was the practitioner that conducted evaluations of two other persons involved in the Grazzini-Rucki case. “The potential for a conflict of interest, or even the appearance of one, can compromise objectivity.” AAPL Practice Guideline for the Forensic Assessment

Normally, forensic psychological evaluations are ordered to determine competency to stand trial, asserting a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, sentence mitigation or testamentary capacity. I have already been falsely convicted and sentenced, so clearly this is just further harassment by Dakota County.

I am also confused as to why I was contacted by probation officer Jeremy Lehto from Stearns County regarding transferring my probation. I was not made aware of this by Dakota County and Jeremy also found it odd that I was not contacted. I was told by Dakota County at my initial meeting that I do not meet the requirements of a probation transfer to my county of residence due to the low risk status.

I have complied with my probation requirements and the unwarranted request to take another psychological evaluation is clearly being done to harass, punish and retaliate against me for exposing the obstruction of justice in this case.

Let’s talk about the right to free speech…

The First Amendment provides in part that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.”

All convicted felons still have the right to free speech, even while in prison. Falsely convicted felons also have the right to free speech, even when they’re not in prison.

Judges often call gag orders “protective orders,” and say they are necessary to protect a person’s right to a fair trial, the fair administration of justice or the sanctity of jury deliberations. Judge Asphaug ordered the gag after the trial and no one else has been gagged except me. Go figure. Everyone else can write about my case and I can’t? Hmmmmm …

Another interesting factor in this case is that Michael Brodkorb (Blogger Extraordinaire for Dakota County) was also slapped with an HRO due to actual harassing and stalking behavior as well as misrepresentation in covering this case. He stated that it was a “violation of his First Amendment rights.” Wait a minute, he’s applauding the court’s decision to violate my rights to free speech. Hypocritical much??!

Anyhow, read excerpts below from the article Blogger Restraining order raises worry for journalists  

“Journalists must, of course, follow the law when doing their job. But aggressive reporting focused on a high-profile suspect of a crime is a legitimate and necessary role for the media.

The chilling effect is that if someone doesn’t like coverage they could go to a courthouse and file what I believe to be a fraudulent document with fictitious information to game the system,” he told the Star Tribune.

Restraining orders are sometimes given quickly by a judge in order to err on the side of protecting someone from being harmed. Later, those restraining orders are sometimes lifted if the judge, upon further evidence, realizes it’s unsupported. In this case the order was tossed out on a technicality before further judicial review could measure its validity. (Those pesky technicalities of illegally withholding/suppressing evidence, witness tampering, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct didn’t really matter in my case did they?!)

The case leaves open the potential that restraining orders could be filed against journalists by anyone who doesn’t like the scrutiny they are receiving. That’s not a comforting thought for journalists or for a society that relies on an unfettered press.”

I’ll leave it at that!

Father urging change in custody laws after death of Gina Summers and Son Jude

Gina Summers Home Photo by C. Rice

Before the bodies of Gina Summers and son Jude are even buried, the father Jeffry Sandberg had his attorney Kathryn Engman speak out on his behalf. Engman has been representing Sandberg since the custody/parenting time dispute began in 2015.

Statement obtained by KSTP
“One week ago, Jeffry Sandberg was fishing in the Boundary Waters with his sons, 5-year old Jude and Nico Sandberg, and Grandpa Sandberg,” the statement read. “Today he is planning the funeral for Jude, murdered by his mother, Gina Summers, when he was getting ready for his first day of Ready Start Kindergarten. The storyline printed or broadcast so far needs to be clarified, as the case has been characterized as being a custody battle. That is inaccurate. 

“Custody was determined following a two-day Trial in November, 2015. The mother, since the onset of the case in January, 2015 when she falsely accused the father of domestic abuse, never missed an opportunity to disrupt the established father-son relationship, both inside and outside of the Family Court paternity proceedings. Her actions and inactions, including her scheduling of multiple Motions before the Court, not only before but also after the Trial, and subsequently to the Court of Appeals, and her absolute refusal to participate in ordered mediation traumatized Father and his entire family over the last 2 1/2 years.

“Make no mistake, the Family Court recognized early on in the case the need for Father to play an integral part in Jude’s life – in order to serve his best interests – resulting in an award of joint legal and joint physical custody of Jude with equal parenting time; and the determination of September 1, 2017 that Jude would begin school on September 5, 2017.

“Mr. Sandberg intends to do what he can to ensure that Jude’s life was not wasted, by working with Legislators and the Courts to add to the current body of Family Law statutes, to require more comprehensive mental health testing when facts indicate such a need.

“The family and friends of Jude Sandberg are experiencing pain and grief beyond measure, and request privacy and space – and prayers – at this time.”

This is a tragic event all the way around. However, I disbelieve Sandberg’s version of his story and believe his narcissistic, controlling and abusive mannerisms is what should be looked at. His grandstanding behind his lawyers is exactly what individuals like Mr. Sandberg do. The mental health evaluation needs to be done on Mr. Sandberg but that won’t happen due to his ability to supply attorneys with money and the perception of a successful, white male business man to @Hennepin CountyFamilyCourt. @HennepinCounty Courts and Child Protection have been failing children for years and continue to do so. Maybe this will be a wakeup call to @GovMarkDayton and Hennepin County courts about the laws they have passed and the bias that exists in the family courts and child protection issues. They system needs to be fixed before tragedies continue to happen and the “best Interest Rulings” need to be reviewed and modified quickly.

Gina was an active community member and well like individual who was very proud and loved her son.

For all those who are wondering; I am a white, successful male who is tired of continuing seeing these tragedies happen due to an unfair and bias system that is failing those who it is supposed to be protecting. Wake up MN and #HennepinCounty and protect our children not those who have the most money.

You should know better. Gina murdered her son. 50% custody was not enough for her madness. You need an eval.

 You are telling mine and everyone that has walked in Gina’s shoes. Bravo like Bridget L said…. I have a current ex of a nightmare as you described that is hiding behind counselors, GAL’s, all boys liberal judges and father right attorneys. Gov Dayton and everyone else probably won’t give a damn about this case or anyone elses…. they are only looking out for the BLM voters and keeping the protesters at bay…. Sorry, for making this into a race card, do not mean to, but it seems the family law cases have been put on the back burner until something tragic like this opens up peoples blur vision….

Mom hangs her 5-year-old son and then herself in horrific murder-suicide: Police

September 5, 2017

Minnesota police are searching for motive in an alleged murder-suicide involving a mother and her 5-year-old son, as reported by StarTribune.

Police found the bodies of the 47-year-old woman and her 5-year-old son in an Orono home on Tuesday, during a welfare check. Both bodies had been hanged to death, authorities indicate, calling the incident an apparent murder-suicide. The mother’s identity has been revealed to be Gina Summers, though the child’s identity is being withheld for now, with the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office stating they will release that information after an autopsy, according to KARE11.

Authorities conducted the welfare check because the child “had not been returned to his father for parenting,” Police Chief Correy Farniok said.

According to court documents, the unidentified mother was involved in a lengthy custody battle with the father of her 5-year-old son, with each accusing the other of harming the boy. This could have provided motive for the cruel act, investigators note.
