- the first is in Federal Court case #0943097 to request an enjoinment by the bankruptcy court for the criminal Case #F11-00137 (in which the alleged incident had been previously discharged in bankruptcy). The Dallas Judge Teresa Hawthorne said he is going nowhere to represent himself (is this just another example of it being a crime to be poor and not being willing to subject his future on a court appointed attorney that won't bother looking at the case material before he shows up to court?). The reason he was moved to Dallas is because he has uncovered much malfeasance and other additional issues in a case in Collin County.
- The Case in Collin County where he was found guilty has generated much interest and I will detail my concerns below. The Case Number is #366-81879-09. He has filed a motion for a new trial and wants to appear in court to represent himself and the judge in Dallas will not allow him to do so.
There are clearly “problems” with this case and I often wonder how often this goes on in not only our state, but our nation. Hundreds....perhaps thousands each year? That question haunts me. I can't think of anything worse than putting a man in jail that does not deserve to be there.
It is quite disheartening to me to see that people without options and opportunity, are treated as insignificant in our society- simply because they cannot afford to level the playing field. I simply cannot stand by idly and watch the suffering of anyone less fortunate, if I have the opportunity to make a difference.
