Justice Nancy Mills Disqualifies Entire York County District Attorney’s Office From Prosecuting A Domestic Violence Case

PPH reports “A judge has disqualified the entire York County District Attorney’s Office from prosecuting a contentious domestic violence case, and also ruled that Eliot police officers may be cross-examined by the defense, resurrecting allegations that a majority of them routinely falsified patrol reports.

Justice Nancy Mills issued the rulings last week in the criminal case against Paul Olsen of Eliot, finding that Assistant District Attorney Thomas Miscio knowingly intercepted confidential documents written by Olsen’s attorney that contained the defense’s trial plans and read them without informing the court of the breach as he is required to do.

Mills learned of Miscio’s actions on May 4, the day before the 34-year-old Olsen was due to stand trial for allegedly assaulting and raping his former girlfriend at her home in Eliot in 2012. Mills immediately called off the trial, and said in her follow-up order Thursday that either the Maine Attorney General’s Office or another district attorney’s office will have to take over prosecuting the case.

“In this case, the state’s attorney should have known the information in the documents was privileged,” Mills wrote in the five-page ruling. “The disclosure of the information cannot be undone.” Read more HERE.

WMTW8 reports “Judge rules prosecutor saw privileged defense information in Paul Olsen case. “The state’s attorney’s reading the information was not inadvertent,” Mills wrote. “The disclosure of the information cannot be undone.”

Mills also issued another decision in the case, ruling that Olsen’s defense team could ask members of the Eliot Police Department if they have ever lied about their whereabouts while on duty.

“The defendant may inquire on cross-examination about the alleged misconduct by Eliot Police Department officers,” Mills wrote.

Why wouldn’t the same ruling be consistent with a related case? (Now former) York County D.A. Mark Lawrence was in possession of confidential information/documentation relative to a “scheme” devised by Biddeford city officials, Police Chief Roger Beaupre and others. It was believed that D.A. Lawrence would investigate, indict and prosecute where the evidence demanded. D.A. Lawrence jumped the fence and prosecuted Lafortune with her evidence in his hands. Lafortune’s attorney was not allowed to present evidence, nor witnesses.

Hancock County D.A. Mary Kellett, Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar, Maine Supreme Court Justice Ellen Gorman And The Attorney General’s Office…Behind The Curtain

To all online news media….please share!

BDN reports “Mary Kellett, assistant district attorney for Hancock County, admitted to a state supreme court justice that she violated rules of the Maine Bar when she prosecuted a former Gouldsboro man on gross sexual assault and misdemeanor assault charges.  She appeared before Justice Ellen Gorman after the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar recommended late last year that she be suspended. A board grievance panel met in Bangor last fall to consider a misconduct complaint filed against Kellett by Vladek Filler and determined that Kellett had violated seven bar rules in handling Filler’s assault case. The board’s recommendation that Kellett be suspended is the only such recommendation that board staff can recall for a prosecutor in Maine, according to Jacqueline Rogers, executive director of the board.”

“After last fall’s grievance hearing, the panel determined that Kellett violated bar rules by:

• Engaging in conduct unworthy of an attorney.

• Engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.

• Failing to employ reasonable skill and care.

• Failing to make timely disclosure of the existence of evidence that tends to negate the guilt of the accused, mitigate the degree of the offense or reduce the punishment.

• Suppressing evidence that she had a legal obligation to produce.

• Assisting the state to violate the Maine Rules of Criminal Procedure and the court’s order.

• Employing means that were inconsistent with truth and seeking to mislead the jury.”

“Filler told Gorman Monday that he thinks Kellett should be permanently disbarred. He said the charges against him had irreparably harmed him and his two young sons. Kellett’s mishandling of his case, he said, was an “abuse of power” that he described as willful, inexcusable and prolific.

“This is about intentional misconduct,” Filler told Gorman. “I have been fighting [this] for six years. I am pleading with this court for justice.”

“Gorman told Filler that Kellett’s violations were a first offense and that she did not intend to disbar the prosecutor. The judge did say that suspension was a significant punishment that would have a lasting effect.”

“It is a sanction that would continue to follow Ms. Kellett for the rest of her life,” Gorman said. “It is not a light sanction to impose.”

“Gorman also offered Filler an apology on behalf of the state’s criminal justice system.”

“You did not receive a fair first trial,” the judge said.

“Following the hearing, Filler told reporters in a courthouse hallway that he was disappointed Gorman would not consider disbarring Kellett. ”

“This was not about punishment [for Kellett],” Filler said. “I have an interest in making sure that other people are not subjected to such destructive [prosecutorial] abuse.”

William Fisher, was one of two assistant attorneys general who represented Kellett throughout the grievance process. Is this the same “William Fisher” who represented York County Deputy Sheriff Clifford Scott in an excessive force case in federal court? Did he climb the ladder from county level to state level?

“Ms. Kellett has suffered and learned from these proceedings,” Fisher said. “I believe she is going to be a better prosecutor. As part of Kellett’s admission, Fisher said, prosecutors in Bassano’s office will work with the Office of the Attorney General to establish systems by which they can keep better track of what types of evidence police departments have and do not have in each criminal case that Bassano’s office is prosecuting. The attorney general’s office also is working with Bassano’s office to review proper procedures for preparing for trial and for conducting trials, he said.”

“Gorman said she would review the agreement between Kellett and the Board of Overseers, which calls for a 30-day suspension, and that she planned to suspend the prosecutor but that the suspension itself would be suspended, meaning that Kellett will be able to continue to practice law unless new misconduct issues arise, at which point the suspension could go into effect. Gorman said she expected to issue her final decision sometime later this week.”

BDN reports “Judge orders legal remediation training for Hancock County prosecutor.”  “In the order, Gorman suspends Kellett’s law license for 30 days but effectively puts the suspension on hold on the condition that Kellett complete six hours of continuing legal education. After Kellet’s training is completed and certified by Davis to Gorman, the judge’s suspension order will be terminated without further action, Gorman wrote.”

In the Dec. 5 report, the panel indicated that it “concludes that an appropriate sanction in this matter would be a period of suspension. Accordingly, the panel finds probable cause for such discipline, and hereby directs Bar Counsel [J. Scott Davis] to commence an attorney disciplinary action by filing an information with the [Maine Supreme Judicial] Court.” Jacqueline Rogers, executive director of the board, said that this case was the first board officials knew of in which a panel report recommended that a prosecutor be suspended. She declined to comment specifically about Kellett’s alleged misconduct.

“So let’s see – A state entity that oversees the conduct of licensed attorneys in Maine has determined that a Hancock County prosecutor violated seven bar rules and should be suspended.”
“Bar Counsel J. Scott Davis is presenting the misconduct case to the board, while Assistant Attorney General Ronald Lupton is representing Kellett.Lupton said Kellett did not do anything to violate bar rules. He said his office and the Law Court each reviewed the case prior to Filler filing his complaint with the board and neither found that Kellett had done anything improper.”

It is quite surprising that Bar Counsel J. Scott Davis presented this misconduct case to the board as he has protected “his brothers/sisters” for decades. The activity “behind closed doors” demands EXPOSURE! Proof in the pudding. Why didn’t Scott Davis discipline Attorney Jens-Peter Bergen who was charged with “Engaging a Prostitute” in the Zumba case? As an attorney he knows, or should know, the law. He chose to commit a criminal or unlawful act that reflects adversely on his honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as an attorney. This is not the only time Atty. Bergen chose to violate the law.  BERGEN, JENS PETER, ATTY. (COMPLAINT)

Attorney Jens-Peter Bergen, client on the list, had his case transferred to York County Superior Court.  Entry of Appearance of Attorney and Jury Trial Request.

Jens-Peter Bergen, 54, of 79 Portland Road in Kennebunk, plead guilty through his attorneys, without appearing in York County Superior Court.

Attorneys who commit unethical conduct in this state are subject to discipline by the Grievance Commission of the Board of Overseers of the Bar or the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Such discipline can range from a reprimand, the least serious discipline, to a suspension from practice, or permanent disbarment from practice.  Click here.

In this case, Jacqueline Rogers, executive director of the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar, said that there are bar rules that attorneys must adhere to or face possible disciplinary action. She said that no action would be contemplated against any attorney unless that person was convicted. Lawyers in Maine must register each year and are required to inform the Board if they have been convicted of a crime. She said some attorneys self report when there have been convictions and sometimes the court will inform the Board. She said any action against an attorney would depend on a conviction. Attorney Bergen admitted guilt. This was reported throughout the country and beyond. They didn’t hear about it?

LAWRENCE, MARK D.A. LETTER JUNE 6, 2003

If the Attorney General and Maine Supreme Court Chief Justice Leigh Saufley brush this under the rug….does Mr. Filler, or any of us, stand a chance? Notwithstanding the fact that research proves that Maine judges must be commissioned and they are not! (In the search engine, type in Maine judicial system/courts and read the comments.)

When will legislators, our lawmakers, step up and grow a backbone? Judges, D.A’s, the Attorney General (and other constitutional officers), attorneys are daily violating us and the law.

When will the B.S. “behind the curtain” by both parties…end? Legislators give the “ok” for judges to sit on the bench, they can give the “ok” to remove them!

Let’s put an end to the “good ole boy network.” EXPOSE!

Gov. Angus King letter

Attorney Mark Lawrence (former President of the Maine Senate) was appointed District Attorney by Governor John Baldacci to fill the vacancy created when Michael Cantara became Commissioner of Public Safety. He ran for congress, 2008 election, and lost.  He was later nominated by Congressman Michael Michaud for position of Maine U.S.A.G. I wrote Congressman Michaud and asked that he justify his nomination of Mark Lawrence for said position. No response.  Lawrence was no longer named as a possible nominee. He has opened his own law firm.

Printed in the Clarion Edict.

The articles in the last edition of the Clarion Edict are excellent! They are very informative and inner-twine with each other. It is refreshing to know that the people have a place in which to have their voices heard.

I want to expand on the article by Joseph Nugent “Maine U.S. Attorney Office Non-Feasance.” Why do public officials keep passing the proverbial buck and look the other way? Joseph Nugent asked “who is going to do something about corruption? Why is it happening? Who is profiting from it? Why is no one doing anything about it? How long is this type of wrong doing going to be tolerated? And who will ultimately enforce the law, maintain the public trust and protect our faith and confidence in our system of government?”

The duties of the Attorney General are established by the Maine Revised Statutes Annotated, Title 5, sections 191 – 205. These statutes direct the Attorney General to discharge various responsibilities, including investigating and prosecuting homicides and other crimes. In addition to these statutory powers, the Attorney General is vested with certain other powers deriving from the Office’s common law powers. The leading case on the powers and duties of the Attorney General is Superintendent of Insurance v. Attorney General, 558 A.2d 1197 (Me.1989). The essential principle stated by the Court in this landmark decision is that the Attorney General possesses constitutional and common law authority, independent of the agencies represented by the Office that may be exercised by the Attorney General in the public interest.

The State Court Administrator, established by M.R.S.A. Title 4, Chapter 1 ξ 17, subject to the supervision and direction of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court, is responsible for administration and management of the court system, including investigating complaints with respect to the operation of the courts. Maine’s Court Administrator is James T. Glessner.

Why are the unlawful interferences by officials rubber-stamped by Maine’ judicial system? Why do state government agencies in place to protect consumers, fail to do so? The power of the agencies, etc. is supported by the corruption of the courts. Why do they get away with this? Because they can. The lack of oversight and accountability that exists in Maine government agencies/departments/committees/commissions, including the Judiciary, pose a real problem for small business owners and residents.

It is disgusting and appalling, through past administrations, that there has always been the excuse, including the Attorney General’s Office – top law enforcement agency in the State, that “there’s nothing we can do.” This being the case, it is my opinion that the state has 2 choices: 1) replace the person in charge of an agency or 2) if an agency is not servings its purpose/mission, eliminate the agency. This would be fiscally responsible. Paying salaries of employees who fail in their job performance is a misuse of taxpayer money. It is imperative that Governor LePage initiate investigations into the job performance of the Attorney General’s Office and Administrative Office of the Courts as this is a matter of public interest and trust.

As long as we have family connections, “revolving doors” in Augusta and legislators who leave their common sense at the door when entering the chambers, public and judicial corruption in this state will continue.

As Mr. Nugent reported, lack of action by Attorneys General Steven Rowe and Janet Mills occurred during the (former governor) John Baldacci administration. If “you wonder why public and judicial corruption is going unfettered here in our State”, connect the dots. The masquerade party ongoing in Augusta is known by more people than our officials realize. The political players dance from one elected position to another, wheel and deal with connections they’ve made, ignore the pleas for help from their constituents who pay their salaries, then eventually climb the ladder to a higher position. Then family members join the party. The individuals we thought would be great representatives of the people, and we voted for, have lost their way. They sold their souls and the future of their children, grandchildren and the American people for the sake of comfort and wealth. They have elected to take the path of corruption which, eventually, will effect them.

Senator Barry Hobbins, click here, Kennebec Journal, Cutts Island Group.

Re Radio Address – Sen. Hobbins on Government Transparency, March 19, 2011:
“Democrats have long believed that people should know who, how, where, and what is being governed.” Hobbins “wants to work with Governor LePage moving this state forward, but he wants to do it with transparency and openness.” He stated, “Governor, I hope you will join me.”

Hobbins brought up one case in point, the Governor’s announcement of the formation of a Business Advisory Council, “however, in the Executive Order, the Governor added language exempting the Council from Maine’s Right to Know Law.” “As a founding member and former chair of Maine’s Right to Know Committee, Hobbins felt “a responsibility, a stewardship, for transparency in Maine government” and “in response to the Executive Order, he wrote a letter to the Governor asking him to re-evaluate his decision exempting the Advisory Council from the Freedom of Access Act. To date, he had not received a response from him or anyone in his administration. Hobbins stated he “will remain dogged in his efforts to allow the people of Maine access to the state’s business. Transparency is essential to an open society. A cloud of suspicion forms over elected officials and governments where the truth is shrouded in anything but openness. Sunshine Week and the Freedom of Access Act were borne out of this—this need to know, the need to hold elected officials accountable.”

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Senator Hobbins should understand the peoples’ plights including, but not limited to, the decades of seeking justice, the decades of frustration due to the unresponsiveness of elected officials, the lack of transparency in Maine government, the lack of official accountability and the taxation without representation. Hobbins asked Governor LePage to join him in moving this state forward, but he wants “to do it with transparency and openness.” I’m asking Senator Hobbins to join me, and the people, in reining in an out-of-control government and to “do it with transparency and openness.” I, we, remain dogged in our efforts for fairness and truth. Senator Hobbins has long been a member of “there’s nothing I can do club.”

A former Biddeford mayor, Cantara was later elected to become York County’s District Attorney before being tapped by Governor John Baldacci to serve as Commissioner for the Maine Department of Public Safety and later as a Maine District Court Judge, where he serves today. Attorney Mark Lawrence (former President of the Maine Senate) was appointed District Attorney by Governor John Baldacci to fill the vacancy created when Cantara became Commissioner of Public Safety. Official corruption was brought to D.A. Cantara back in the 1990’s. However, my complaint against Atty. Michelle Robert (who was appointed to the A.G.’s office by Governor Angus King, despite his pledge of a “hiring freeze”) was dismissed by Cantara because Michelle Robert was “his friend and colleague.”

Of importance to “all in the family” is the creation of 147 positions in government by (former governor) Angus King.
With further regard to Nugent’s concerns about the Maine U.S. Attorney General’s Office, malfeasance and non-feasance extends into Washington, D.C., including members of Congress.

In February 2007 a complaint was filed with the O.I.G. against two U.S. Attorneys on their failure to perform their duties as Federal Agents and their failure to uphold the law. The complaint was forwarded to the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys, per correspondence of Roger M. Williams, Special Agent and dated April 12, 2007. This was during the tenure of (now former Attorneys General) Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey. Involved in this cover up is H. Marshall Jarrett, the longtime chief lawyer in the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility, who was appointed by President Obama to head the Executive Office for United States Attorneys.

U.S. Congressman Robert Torrecelli. Torrecelli did not take action. When Torrecelli left Congress ), Eric Shuffler later became speech wirter for N.J. Governor Jon Corzine.

On December 5, 2008 I attended a Judiciary Committee Field Hearing in St. Albans, VT, chaired by Senator Patrick Leahy, re: “Community-Based Solutions to Drug-Related Crime in Rural America.” 

I submitted documentation and a demand for a full investigation into drug related crimes and violations of law, rights and due process. I am quite disappointed that I was not afforded the opportunity to speak with Senator Leahy after traveling hours to Vermont. His only response to me was that he would read my documents on the plane. The evidence/documents presented to him demands a full investigation into the cover up of drug-related crimes, including a death, and extends from New Hampshire to Washington agencies, ie., DOJ, FBI, US Attorneys Executive Office, H. Marshall Jarrett, Counsel – Office of Professional Responsibility, NH U.S.A.G. Thomas Colantuono (left his position) and N.H. Asst. U.S.A.G. Mark Zuckerman, and others. I never received a response from Senator Leahy regarding this matter.

Is it not surprising that public officials keep passing the proverbial buck and look the other way? Where are the checks and balances? There are none. Governor Paul LePage must exercise his authority, per the Constitution of Maine, Art V, sec.12, and take care that the laws be faithfully executed. His enforcement of the law can restore the public’s trust, faith and confidence in our system of government.

MAINE JUDGE G. ARTHUR BRENNAN TO RETIRE

PPH reports “Justice G. Arthur Brennan to retire, will be ‘sorely missed’“.

“After three decades as a judge, Superior Court Justice G. Arthur Brennan will retire this summer. Brennan, who is based in York County, will retire Aug. 26, leaving a vacancy on the Superior Court bench.”

“He’s really going to be sorely missed,” said Barry Hobbins, a lawyer in Saco who is Maine’s Senate minority leader. “He’s a very special person. Hobbins praised Brennan for his fairness and his ability to bring together the four components of the criminal justice system – retribution, restraint, deterrence and rehabilitation – in his decision-making.”

“Walter Smith, another Saco-based lawyer, said it’s wonderful to appear before Brennan, whom he described as “a real gentleman. He’s a wonderful human being,” Smith said. “He really cares and really tries to be fair to both sides.”

“Before becoming a judge, Brennan was an assistant attorney general and York County’s district attorney. He was nominated to the District Court bench in 1981 and elevated to the Superior Court in 1984 by Gov. Joseph Brennan.”

Hearings on the re-appointment of other judges took approximately 20 minutes and Judge Brennan was before the Committee for over 2 hours!  State aides were rounded up at the last minute to testify on behalf of Judge Brennan.  Despite all of the evidence against Judge Brennan the Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to re-appoint Arthur Brennan. (Video of the hearing is available.) Who was the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee?  None other than Sen. Barry Hobbins!

 Judicial Selection Committee Members Announced Today by Governor LePage.

Joshua Tardy will serve as the committee’s chair.

In February 2004 I was a candidate in a special election held in Biddeford, Maine during the administrative of (now former) Governor John Baldacci (D). My contact with Jonathan Wayne, Director of the Ethics Commission.

I contacted (now former) Rep. Joshua Tardy regarding the fraudulent election in Biddeford, Maine. I informed him of the tampering of ballots and tampering of first class mailings with the post office. I asked for his help with the fraudulent confiscation of my properties.  He stated, quote “this has been hashed over.” When I asked why I wasn’t included in the “hashing over” of this issue, he  declined to speak with me and hung up on me.  Now Governor LePage nominates him to the Judicial Selection Committee?

Additionally, Judge Robert Crowley stepping down at the top of his game.

What game?

Does anyone else see a problem here?

Are these issues not a matter of “public interest?”

WHEN WILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WAKE UP? THIS IS YOUR MONEY ALSO!

The Sun Journal reports ” A former Twin Cities developer is expected to plead guilty in federal court later this month to charges related to fraud and theft involving federal loan applications aimed at rehabbing and repairing local apartment buildings.” Soule faces two charges in a federal complaint, including making fraudulent claims for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development money and stealing money from HUD, through its HOME Investment Partnership Program.

On Tuesday, June 28th I, with another concerned citizen, met with a Maine State Senator and his aide on this very same issue.

The following is my e-mail to the Senator and his aide:

 I just discovered this article and want to bring to your attention that one of the issues brought up to you is exactly the same situation regarding my home and my business property.

 MY HOME:

I left with you my complaint filed with A.G. Schneider. My case involves an alleged foreclosure by the City of Biddeford in 2002. A legal advertisement was placed in the Journal Tribune with sealed bids to be “opened, reviewed and awarded by the City Manager on June 5, 2002 at 9:00 a.m.”

On June 4, 2002 it was announced at the city council meeting that bids had already been opened. This predates legal notice announcing sealed bids sale. No public auction was held.

On June 21, 2002 a quit claim deed was given to Tim Q. Ly. A Writ of Possession was given to Ly with full knowlege by the courts that I had pending litigation against the city’s actions and for my claim of right to title of this real estate.

On August 19, 2002 Tim Q. Ly used my property as collateral to obtain a $105,000.00 loan from Fleet Bank.

In May, 2003 the city sent me a tax bill, which I paid, and the city accepted.
On or about October 24, 2003, The Maine Supreme Court issued an illegal order affirming the lower court’s decision of the issuance of a writ of possession which is null and void by operation of law, in addition to having knowledge of pending litigation in this matter.

I was unlawfully removed from my home.

York County Superior Court judge Arthur Brennan never held a trial in this matter, a denial of my civil, constitutional and due process rights. I remain the sole owner of my property until proven otherwise.

I was in contact with York County D.A. Mark Lawrence. I also wanted an investigation on possible illegal activity. I believed that he would investigate, but he didn’t. He jumped the fence and prosecuted me with my evidence in hand. I was not allowed to present evidence, nor witnesses.

Is this fair and just? MRSA 17-A applies in my case.

BUSINESS PROPERTY:

I was a small business owner for nearly 30 years. I bought commercial property in Saco in 1984. In 1993, I wanted to add to my business, but Saco denied me a permit stating I had “residential” property. What I intended to do was allowed per my deed. This combined with the bank’s unfair trade practices, refusal to give me my refinanced loan documents and Atty. Michelle Robert’s threats of “seeing me in court for the next ten years” (she left her practice and went to the A.G.’s office) achieved an intended goal – a sham foreclosure action against me. I did obtain an attorney, but was not notified of an alleged hearing on this matter until it “was over.”

An auction was held on my property, selling as “COMMERCIAL PROPERTY.”

I went to the “auction” where the bankers were among the bidders. Someone I was with was the high bidder. The bankers/attys and auctioneer Peter Zafirson took a break and went outside. Upon returning, the auction resumed with the bank placing a bid and the auctioneer immediately said sold.

My investigation found that the bank sold this property to SBM Corp. – members of the bank, one of whom is the loan officer who refused to give me loan documentation. SMB Corp. sold the property to Bruce Haskell (who has a business on my property), the second lowest bidder. I believe his bid was $20,000. Bruce Haskell granted the property back to the bank for $1.

Is this fair and just? MRSA 17-A applies in this case also.

I had much equity in both properties!

Attorney General Schneider’s refusal to take action is discriminatory, selective prosecution and double standard of justice.

Is this fair and just?

Why does the City of Biddeford deny access to HUD financial disclosure?  This is YOUR money? Why does Soule faces two charges and not Tim Q, Ly?

There is no statute of limitations on fraud. HAZEL-ATLAS GLASS CO. v. HARTFORD-EMPIRE CO., 322 U.S. 238 (1944)

I also note, the lawfirm representing the bank was also the lawfirm representing the City of Biddeford.

I further note, what is more disgusting than the events/abuses that have taken place is that our “so-called elected representatives” agree with the abuses.

Do you agree?
