Florida: Are Tallahassee Leaders Pro or Anti Abuse of Women & Children?

Published October 6, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL: Do Tallahassee officials suffer from amnesia? Or do they simply just enjoy rewarding men who disrespect women and laws?

In the 2012 campaign for Leon County Sheriff, instead of the sixteen year incumbent, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, welcoming the first women in the history of Tallahassee to challenge him for Leon County Sheriff—Sheriff Campbell threatened to shoot her—to use her as target practice. Lisa Sprague, a White woman, ran against Sheriff Campbell without all of the unnecessary name calling. According to an article on Newtrajectory, Sheriff Larry Campbell states, “I told somebody the other day we have police standards we have to keep up, that we have to our pistol proficiency up. And that we have to keep our other police professional standards up. And I had invited the other candidates if they don’t think I can do it, go down and let me shoot at you and see if I can do it any good.”  It was also reported that Sheriff Larry Campbell referred to Ms. Sprague as “the Bitch.”

When is it ever ok for anyone, let alone an elected sheriff, to threaten to shoot a woman or anyone else for that matter?

In an Ethics complaint dismissed by the Ethics Commission, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, along with his son, Assistant State Attorney, Jack Campbell, made special provisions at the Leon County Jail for former Leon County Jail inmate, Conor McBride. In March 2010, Conor McBride was booked into the Leon County Jail for shooting his girlfriend nineteen-year-old girlfriend, Ann Grosmaire in the face with a shotgun at pointblank range, as she knelt on the floor crying. It was reported that Anne had put her hand up to protect her face, but the force from the shotgun blew a portion of her hand off and traveled into her head—leaving just the brainstem intact. State Attorney Willie Meggs assigned Assistant State Prosecutor Jack Campbell to prosecute the case against Conor McBride. Not long after Ann’s murder, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell violated several Florida Model Jail standards by arranging for Leon County Jail inmate, Conor McBride, to have a contact visit—including no handcuffs—with his (Conor) parents, as well as, Ann’s parents in a room inside of the Leon County Jail. Only the Campbell family would believe that a man, who murders in helpless girlfriend in cold-blood, deserves special provisions inside the Leon County Jail.

People who suffer from abuse look for safe havens for assistance. How does naming the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Administrative Building to Larry Campbell Administration Building begin to define a safe haven or place of trust in a community that is fully aware of the EVIL that once ruled? Many public schools, buildings and monuments that are named after those with historical ties to racism and/or severe mistrust amongst the citizens of the community, are being renamed or dismantled. The Leon County Sheriff’s Office Administrative Building was not safe when Sheriff Larry Campbell was in office and probably won’t be safe until the citizens of Leon County elect a sheriff who does not owe thanks to Sheriff Larry Campbell for their many years of sleazy service.

During his time in office, Sheriff Larry Campbell replaced a team of veteran detectives with a supposed volunteer deputy, on a double homicide investigation. The supposed volunteer deputy, a wealthy close family friend named Don Odham, played cop, for many years. But no matter how many years Don Odham spent playing cop that did not make Don Odham mentally stable of actually embrace the true responsibilities and understandings of what all goes along with being a real law enforcement officer. Sheriff Larry Campbell having replaced Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Melinda McBride, a Black woman, with Don Odham, a White man, proves that not only did Sheriff Larry Campbell show favoritism while in office (violate the law), but that Sheriff Larry Campbell showed a lack of respect for a woman leader within his office, as well as a lack of honor for those full-time women and men who worked hard to build their career to serve the community. It is against policy for a volunteer deputy to do detective work. Leon County Sheriff’s Sergeant Brian Pearson committed perjury in order to cover for the Campbell’s. There is no telling how many criminal cases Don Odham was allowed to botch under Sheriff Larry Campbell’s rule. Sheriff Larry Campbell may have paid for Don Odham to receive training versus paying for the training of full-time law enforcement officers. Don Odham stated that he was assigned his own patrol car to take home.

After Sheriff Larry Campbell’s death in December 2014, Governor Rick Scott soon appointed Mike Wood, a Leon County Sheriff’s Sergeant with a checkered past (drugs), that owed all of his 30 plus years of law enforcement experience to Sheriff Larry Campbell. Mike Wood had retired from the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in June 2014. Mike Wood was set to receive six figures during his retirement.

Many women and men with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, serve in their respected positions without threatening to shoot someone or have a checkered past. As leaders and others strive to honor the late Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, there will be others, many within the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, who will remember Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell for the many negative attributes Sheriff Campbell showed to while in office and to the community—including his threat to shoot the first woman in Tallahassee to ever seek the position as Leon County Sheriff in order to prove his manhood; replacing veteran detectives with his volunteer friend, Don Odham; and, as some have mentioned, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell’s refusal to pronounce “Leon” correctly because it sounded too much like the name of a Black man.

Naming the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Administrative Building after Larry Campbell was an irresponsible decision by Tallahassee leaders. When the decision is made to honor someone it is HIGHLY IRRESPONSIBLE for leaders to overlook those dishonorable acts of a person. Nobody is perfect, but every man, woman and child deserves to be respected. That did not happen under Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell’s rule.

As this country strives to move forward with Race Relations and Criminal Justice Reform, Tallahassee leaders must know that there is more to moving forward into the 21st Century era than passing an Anti-Corruption Amendment. Tallahassee leaders must rid the community of the thought of such disgusting “cancer cells” that used to plague the community and do everything possible from coming back.

Fortunately, buildings can be renamed.








What Roles Did Florida’s 2nd Judicial Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs, State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell and his dad, the late Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell Play in the Release of a Violent Man Who Robbed Two Tallahassee Banks?

Published September 23, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—According to the Tifton Gazette, a fugitive from Tallahassee, FL was arrested in Tifton by the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Task Force with assistance from the Tift County Sheriff’s Office. In the article entitled, “Tallahassee Fugitive Arrested in Tifton,” that was published on May 30, 2012, Latasha Everson with Tifton Gazette, named 30-year-old, Dawuan Najee Williams, as the Tallahassee fugitive who was arrested.

Before Dawuan Najee Williams, a previously convicted felon, fled to Tifton, Georgia, Williams was named as the main suspect in two Tallahassee bank armed robberies. Employees and members at the SunTrust Bank and Farmers and Merchants Bank were Williams’ victims. On June 4, 2012, Dawuan Najee Williams was extradited back to Tallahassee, Florida and booked into the Leon County Jail. Bond was set at $15000.

In the case of DeShon Thomas, according to the Summary of offense and Probable Cause along with the Complaint charging DeShon Thomas with Solicitation to Commit First Degree Murder filed by State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin, Newlin states that he (Newlin) first met with Dawuan Williams on June 28, 2012. Named in the summary of offense as Newlin’s contacts in the Leon County Jail are Dawaun Williams and Walter Cole Rayborn—these two inmates became State Prosecutor Jack Campbell’s key witnesses against DeShon, who was awaiting trial for Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent—to which State Prosecutor Jack Campbell had NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE to prove the charges in that his dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell had brought against DeShon, who was 17-years-old at the time.

On January 27, 2011, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a double homicide of 17-year-old Sterling Conner Jr. and his 20-year-old sister, Laqecia Herring. The victims’ mother informed detectives that Laqecia was about four months pregnant and that the father of Laqecia’s unborn baby was 17-year-old, DeShon Thomas. Immediately, the Leon County Sheriff’s Detectives began investigating DeShon, who was temporarily sleeping on the couch at his co-worker, 21-year-old, Trentin Ross apartment. On January 28, 2011, during the execution of a search warrant for firearms at Trentin Ross’ one-bedroom apartment by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Leon County Sheriff’s detectives located five pots of soil with marijuana stems sprouting from them and a lamp in Trentin Ross’ bedroom closet. NO FIREARMS. Both Trentin Ross and DeShon were charged with Cultivation of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. After nearly a week of being charged with Cultivation of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and repeatedly appearing before two juvenile court judges, Assistant State Attorney Eric Trombley direct filed the charges–DeShon was charged as an adult for Cultivation of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. As a bond condition, Leon County Judge Robert Wheeler ordered DeShon to be monitored by GPS. Before DeShon’s mother could post bond, DeShon was charged with the Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder. Over a month after being charged with the murders, DeShon was charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent. After spending over a year and a half awaiting trial, in August 2012, on the same day DeShon’s fired attorney, Gregory Cummings, filed his Motion to Withdraw from DeShon’s case, DeShon was charged with Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder with the target being Trentin Ross a.k.a. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell’s key witness against DeShon in the double murder case. (Trentin Ross never gave a deposition against DeShon. There was no clear evidence that Trentin Ross had actually gave incriminating statements against DeShon to Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham a.k.a. Fake Cop.)

Over two after being charged with Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent, and a year after being charged with Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder, DeShon, who was now under the representation of Regional Counsel Daren Shippy, was having his first pre-trial hearing to ever be held. During the pre-trial hearing, State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin admitted that Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell (the Prosecutor on DeShon’s case), requested that he (Newlin) go to the Leon County Jail to meet with Williams. Williams had agreed to “help them.” On June 28, 2012, immediately following Newlin and Williams’ first meeting at the Leon County Jail, Williams was released from jail. Newlin also stated during a pre-trial hearing that he did not know Williams was going to be released “so fast.” Newlin stated that he (Newlin) had to try to locate Williams at his residence. Williams would later be provided with money by Newlin and Leon County Sheriff’s Deputy Ronald O’Brien.

JN COMPLAINT                 DW Court Docket

In December 2012, six months after Dawuan Williams was released back into the community, Williams was charged with Home Invasion Robbery with Kidnapping, forgery and a slew of other felony charges.

Although Walter Cole Rayborn never testified against DeShon, special stipulations were imposed for Rayborn. After Rayborn’s release from prison, in March 2015, on July 9, 2015, Walter Cole Rayborn was charged by the Tallahassee Police Department with Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder. The two victims, 22-year-old, Lance T. Love and 21-year-old Cornellious J. Poole had been bound and shot execution style in Mr. Love’s apartment on July 5, 2015, when the Tallahassee Police Department was responding to a call reporting smoke coming from Mr. Love’s apartment. Mr. Love and Mr. Poole were found in the bathtub. Rayborn was later charged with arson.

On October 15, 2013, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell called Trentin Ross to the stand to testify against DeShon. Ross testified stating that he was providing testimony to get a deal on his pending Cultivation of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia charges (these charges had been pending for almost three years).

Without any physical evidence against DeShon, DeShon was convicted solely based on the testimony of those seeking to get deals with their own criminal cases. Since Trentin Ross testified against DeShon, he (Ross) has been repeatedly arrested—including a charge of drug manufacturing.

What roles did Florida’s 2nd Judicial Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs, State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell and his dad, the late Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell play in the release of Dawuan Williams?

State Prosecutor Jack Campbell went over and beyond to get DeShon, a child, convicted to Life in prison. But all of those that he (Campbell) enlisted, have been accused of doing more damage to the community in partnership with…

Tallahassee citizens NEED TO KNOW who the REAL CRIMINALS are.






The State of Florida Torture System; Yes, Florida Imposes the Death Penalty

Published September 21, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—In June 2013, the Miami Herald published an article entitled, “Gov. Rick Scott signs bill to speed up executions in Florida.” The article by Mary Ellen Klas, states, “Governor Rick Scott signed a bill into law Friday aimed at accelerating the pace of the death penalty process in Florida that could make the governor the most active executioner in modern state history. The measure, dubbed, “the Timely Justice Act” by its proponents, requires governors to sign death warrants 30 days after the Florida Supreme Court certifies that an inmate has exhausted his legal appeals and his clemency review. Once a death warrant is signed, the new law requires the state to execute the defendant within six months. In a lengthy letter accompanying his signature, Scott aggressively countered allegations by opponents that the law will “fast track” death penalty cases and emphasized that it “discourages stalling tactics” of defense attorneys and ensures that the convicted “do not languish on death row for decades.”

Of course, We, the People of Florida, know that there are some INNOCENT people on Florida’s Death Row and in Florida’s prisons—both state prisons and for-profit prisons.

On Saturday, September 19, 2015, two years after the signing of “the Timely Justice Act,” it’s being reported by WFTV and other news media outlets that Attorney General Pam Bondi wants to hire more attorneys for her staff. We, the People of Florida, wants to know when exactly did Attorney General Pam Bondi decide that she wants six more additional senior attorneys for her criminal and capital appeals division?

For those of you who may not know, the role of Florida’s Attorney General, in part, is to serve as the chief legal officer for the State of Florida; protect consumers from various types of fraud, and represents the people of Florida when criminals appeal their convictions in state and federal courts.

Below is a list of filings with the First District Court of Appeal by the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel 1st District Office and Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office in the case DeShon Thomas vs. State of Florida:

On January 9, 2014, Assistant Regional Counsel Daren L. Shippy filed a Notice of Appeal on DeShon Thomas’ behalf.

On March 27, 2014, Steven L. Seliger filed a Motion to Withdraw as Counsel from DeShon Thomas’ case, and Appoint Public Defender. On March 28, 2014, the Motion was Granted.

On March 28, 2014, Designation of 2nd Public Defender was to be assigned to represent DeShon Thomas’.

On April 22, 2014, Order from Circuit Court/Agency to appoint Conflict Counsel

On April 28, 2014, Notice of Appearance was filed by Melissa Joy Ford, with Assistant Regional Counsel. (Melissa Joy Ford works in the same office that Assistant Regional Counsel Daren L. Shippy holds the title, Director. Daren L. Shippy was DeShon Thomas attorney for the last six months prior to DeShon going to trial in October 2013. Daren L. Shippy, along with State Prosecutor Jack Campbell and former Second Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford allowed Don Odham, who Impersonated a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective in order to get a Grand Jury to return an Indictment charging 17-year-old DeShon Thomas with Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent, to testify in DeShon’s trial, after having been called all throughout DeShon’s trial as “Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham”—when in fact, Don Odham NEVER worked for the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Of course Melissa Joy Ford DARE NOT use this Argument in DeShon’s appeal.)

On April 13, 2015, Assistant Attorney General, Michael McDermott, filed a Motion for Extension of Time. This was the third Motion for Extension of Time to be filed by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office. According to the Motion for Extension of Time, the staff of 21 attorneys within the Tallahassee Criminal Appeals division has 450 briefs or responses due in the next 90 days.

According to DeShon Thomas’ DCA Docket, on Monday, April 13, 2015, Assistant Attorney General, Michael McDermott, filed a Motion for Extension of Time to file Answer Brief. And then on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, Assistant Attorney General, Michael McDermott, filed Appellee’s Answer Brief, and also on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, Assistant Attorney General, Michael McDermott, filed Motion to File Enlarged Brief. Two days later, on Friday, April 17, 2015, Appellee’s Third Motion for Extension of Time was Granted by the DCA. Also on Friday, April 17, 2015, the court noted the filings of the Motion for leave to File an Answer Brief and the Answer Brief. (So, here, you have Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office filing a third Motion for Extension of Time for Brief with detailed reasons and then filing the Brief on the same day. As well as, filing the Brief before the court can return an Answer on the Motion for Extension of Time for Brief.

In mid-July 2015, DeShon Thomas received the Opinion filed dated July 15, 2015 stating Per Curiam Affirmed by Roberts, C.J. Benton and Lewis, JJ. For those of you who may not know, Per Curiam Affirmed means the appellate court did not agree with Assistant Regional Counsel Melissa Joy Ford’s initial Argument on DeShon’s behalf, thus, DENYING, DeShon’s appeal.

(Both Daren L. Shippy and Melissa Joy Ford are attorneys for Jeffery E. Lewis, General Counsel for the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel, District One. The Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel’s Office refused to use a private investigator on DeShon’s case—and then refused to allow DeShon’s mother to hire a private investigator to assist on the case—so really, the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel’s Office NEVER set out to protect DeShon Thomas’ United States Constitutional Rights. The Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel’s Office showed the same consistency in DeShon Thomas’ appeal as they showed in DeShon’s trial—do not present exculpatory evidence. In comparison to other criminal cases in the DCA documents in DeShon Thomas’ case is the only case where documents are Sealed. DeShon Thomas’ AT&T cell phone records that were said to place him at the crime scene were Ordered and Sealed prior to DeShon Thomas being charged with the murders. And then remained Sealed without ever being provided to DeShon or the public.)  Please click on the link to view a screenshot of DeShon Thomas’ DCA Docket.

DT Appeal Doc

When did Attorney General Pamela Jo Bondi decide that she wanted six more additional senior attorneys for her criminal and capital appeals division at the cost of $650,000?

With Attorney General Pamela Jo Bondi’s Office being backlogged—with a staff of 21 being pressured to produce 450 briefs or responses within 90 days, to whose surprise is it for the First District Court of Appeal to “Per Curiam Affirmed” in DeShon’s case almost on the mark of 90 days. With Pamela Jo Bondi’s Tallahassee office being backlogged 450 briefs and responses, would it not be the same for the DCA to be backlogged as well? Is it a matter of job security for those working at the First District Court of Appeal “Tallahassee’s Taj Mahal?” Seriously, how many people are watching what’s going on at the DCA? Are the number of inmates released from prison based on winning their appeal and the number of inmates exonerated from Death Row since Attorney General Pamela Jo Bondi took office in 2011 a SUFFICIENT number?

The article by Mary Ellen Klas with the Miami Herald in regards to “the Timely Justice Act,” goes on to state, “The bill passed the House 84-34 and was approved by the Senate 28-10, allows the governor to control the execution schedule slightly because it requires him to sign a death warrant after the required clemency review is completed and only the governor may order the clemency investigation.”

There are many states that have issues within their local government, but We, the People of Florida, live in a state where Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pamela Jo Bondi ignores the cries of parents and their children when injustice lands in their backyards. We, the People of Florida, live in a state where our two top elected officials, Governor Rick Scott and Pamela Jo Bondi, violated the Sunshine State’s Public Records laws—put up a fight for years denying the accusations—then settled with the complainant—now wants us to pay over a million dollars for their legal fees—while FIGHTING against ObamaCare. We, the People of Florida, live in a state where Legislators cannot agree on drawing a new Congressional District map, but can pass a bill with flying colors to “fast track” people to their demise during a time when prison inmates are being exonerated and prosecutors are being charged with prosecutorial misconduct for withholding exculpatory evidence. If 21st Century Criminal Justice Reform bypasses Florida…

LORD HAVE MERCY ON US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are Florida Judges Healthy?—Was Second Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson Diagnosed with Cancer in 2012? —Second Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford Permanently Disabled

Published September 14, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—In July 2012, while presiding over numerous criminal cases, according to an email exchange between Tallahassee Defense Attorney Greg Cummings and the mother of DeShon Thomas, during a case management hearing, Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson called for a sidebar to announce that he may have a Cancerous growth and that DeShon’s trial may have to be continued for the fifth time in two years.

In April of 2015, the Judicial Qualifications Commission announced that Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford was being investigated for having shown “a pattern of misconduct.” Soon after the investigation began charges of misconduct were brought about. Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford’s attorney filed a motion seeking to have the charges dismissed. The Commission quickly denied the motion to dismiss.

In late August 2015, according to the Tallahassee Democrat, a panel recommended the involuntary retirement of Second Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford asserting that a medical issue interferes with her judicial duties. The article goes on to state, “Fulford, 50, has been on medical leave from the bench in Franklin County since April 2015 while she has been receiving treatment. The Tallahassee Democrat has not been able to confirm what she is being treated for. In a Wednesday filing, the Judicial Qualifiying Commission wrote “Judge Fulford is permanently disabled and incapable for performing her duties as a circuit judge” after evaluations by health professionals.”

Both Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson and Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford presided over DeShon Thomas’ case. During DeShon’s judicial proceedings, both Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi were repeatedly contacted informing them of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct that was preventing DeShon’s criminal case from progressing through the court. The misconduct played out so clearly in open court that DeShon’s defense attorneys, both private and court appointed, seemed to be used to the misconduct. Under Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson’s presiding for more than two years there was no progressive activity on DeShon’s case. Between 2011 and 2013, Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson and Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford showed that they are not capable of presiding over cases in any capacity.

Currently, Second Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson is one of twenty-two applicants being considered by the First District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission for a judgeship vacancy.

A criminals declining health or being under the influence of drugs (prescribed or otherwise) is not a solid defense for having committed a criminal act.

When exactly did Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford begin experiencing changes in her health? What medications have Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford been taking—prescribed or otherwise? These are questions that both defendants and the families of victims deserve to have answered. Prior to the Judicial Qualifications Commission announcing their investigation of Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford was presiding over a Dealth Penalty case. Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford presided over a manslaughter case where a 17-year-old, white male took a gun into the home of his friend, a black male, and shot him. In that case, despite the teen being charged as an adult, neither the Leon County Sheriff’s Office nor State Attorney Willie Meggs charged the teen with possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell withheld adjudication and Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford sentenced the teen up to three years in a juvenile facility. The victims family did not receive justice. In another case, State of Florida vs. DeShon Thomas, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford relinquished her authority to State Prosecutor Jack Campbell—violating numerous constitutional laws. A defense attorney stated that he feared for the outcome of his client if he did not participate in unethical behavior directed by Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford.

As the Criminal Justice System and courts around the United States move forward into reformation, judges claiming poor health—only after being found as to having shown “a pattern of misconduct” should not be acceptable. Unhealthy judges are sure to make unhealthy decisions that will only lead to more and more wrongful convictions. Wrongful convictions in murder cases leave the real murderer(s) out in the community. That fact alone is a health hazard for everyone.

Injustice is Not justice.





Second Judicial Circuit Judge That Presided Over Florida Death Penalty Case, Forced Into Early Retirement Due to Allegations of “Pattern of Misconduct”

Published September 6, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—Lately, many government workers that have been caught violating the United States Constitution and Florida’s Sunshine Laws, have been forced into early retirement versus being disciplined or prosecuted for their actions. This kind of discipline is not surprising considering that Governor Rick Scott was not convicted after what many media sources reported Rick Scott of having stolen millions of dollars from the government funded Medicaid Program, before becoming the governor of Florida.

Within a year or so following Rick Scott’s taking office as Florida’s Governor in January 2011, Governor Scott violated at least one of Florida’s Sunshine laws. And over the three or four years, Governor Scott has fought one legal or unethical issue after another—with Governor Scott losing the vast majority of them all. In 2014, Governor Scott won re-election, but as we all know money floods our democracy and many voters face stumbling blocks when it comes to exercising their right to vote. None the less, Governor Scott appointed members the Commission. According to FloridaSupremeCourt.org, the Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent agency created by the Florida Constitution solely to investigate the alleged misconduct of Florida state judges. According to Floridabar.org, the Judicial Qualifications Commission is vested with the authority to investigate allegations of misconduct or incapacity of State judges, and to recommend removal or discipline to the Supreme Court where justified. The Commission is comprised of six judges, five lay people and four Florida Bar members.

In October 2013, during a court hearing in the Leon County Courthouse, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford appointed a conflict attorney to represent an inmate. For more than six months, the inmate had been under the representation of Nancy Daniels, the Lead Public Defender. Within an hour following Nancy Daniel’s filing of a Motion to Withdraw from the inmate’s case, a conflict attorney was assigned to the inmate’s case. A conflict attorney is a private attorney that is registered with the county’s chief judge to be assigned to represent inmate’s who cannot financially afford an attorney (Indigent). However, some of these private attorneys register with county’s chief judge specifying which types of cases that they are able to accept. The particular attorney in that Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford appointed was specifically ordered to her to appoint during the hearing by State Prosecutor Jack Campbell with Public Defender Nancy Daniels standing by State Prosecutor Jack Campbell’s side in agreement. Absent at the time of State Prosecutor Jack Campbell ordering Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford to appoint the conflict attorney was the attorney himself. However, the attorneys absence did not stop State Prosecutor Jack Campbell and Public Defender Nancy Daniel’s from discussing in open court how they have in the pass ordered and manipulated pay codes in order for the State of Florida to get certain conflict attorneys paid for representing indigent inmates who they are not registered to represent. In spite of Circut Judge Jackie Fulford acknowledging that she, herself could not “just pick” a conflict attorney, that the “clerk is supposed to assign an attorney,” Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford decided that she would appoint the conflict attorney. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell explained to Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford that he, himself, had spent the weekend speaking with the attorney. When Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford decided to appoint the attorney, during court proceedings, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell pulled out his cell phone, called the attorney and told him to come to the courtroom.

Upon the conflict attorney’s arrival, the conflict attorney, who appeared very uncomfortable, informed Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford that he was only allowed to represent Indigent inmates on Capital cases (this was not a Capital case). Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford reassured the attorney that he would get paid. The conflict attorney then informed Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford that he would be in California and not directly be available to his client for the trial in that his client was State Prosecutor Jack Campbell’s key witness. After State Prosecutor Jack Campbell stated that his inmate key witness would not need to consult with his conflict attorney during the trial, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford appointed the conflict attorney. The Judicial Qualifications Commission refused to investigate Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford for these violations.

In the Judicial Qualifications Commissions investigations, the Commission has stated that Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford showed a “Pattern of Misconduct.” The three cases in that supported Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford’s “Pattern of Misconduct,” occurred before and after State Prosecutor Jack Campbell ordered her (Fulford) to appoint his choice (Campbell’s choice) of conflict attorney. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell ordering Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford and other judges to appoint his choice of conflict attorneys regardless of their registered status is not only unfair to the defendants, but it is also unfair to other private attorneys that are registered with the chief judge for cases in that they are not being appointed due to State Prosecutor Jack Campbell (and possibly others within State Attorney Willie Meggs’ Office) ordering judges to abide by their choice of conflict attorneys.

In another case that State Attorney Jack Campbell is prosecuting, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford was the presiding judge. This particular case is a Death Penalty case. There’s no telling how many of the defendant’s U.S. Constitutional Rights were violated, or what all State Prosecutor Jack Campbell ordered judges—including Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford to do to give leverage over the defense.

Clearly, “favoritism” to State Prosecutor Jack Campbell, is more like, racketeering, robbery, honest services fraud and a slew of other crimes having been committed. These criminal acts in no form or fashion should force Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford into early retirement.

In 2009, while Jackie Fulord was serving as one of Second Judicial Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs’ Assistant State Attorneys, Jackie Fulford was appointed to the bench as a Second Circuit Judge– after another female Second Circuit Judge retired. According to the Judicial Qualifications Commission’s investigation, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford’s first alleged act of misconduct dates back to 2012. Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford has presided over many criminal cases since.

As many states around the country moves forward to reform their Criminal Justice System—including the Death Penalty, forcing government employees into early retirement for their criminal acts or violation of state policies, does not help those who are working diligently to make the state of Florida a better place to live and/or visit and bring or relocate their businesses. True or False: After graduating from law school, many lawyers usually have to pay off a large amount of student load debt?  Why would anyone want to be a law abiding attorney in Florida knowing that State Prosecutors are ordering State and Circuit Judges what to do? No attorney can competently represent their clients in such a bias judicial system.

Think about it—Just a few months ago, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford was sitting on the bench presiding over a case—that if found guilty—Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford would have been a part of the decision that would’ve determined whether the defendant would’ve been sentenced to Life or to Florida’s Death Row to await his demise. And while neither the defendant nor the members of the jury would’ve had any knowledge about Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford’s previous allegations of misconduct (that have now proven to be worthy of investigating) those within the Judicial Qualifications Commission and other legal sources had knowledge.

Greetings to you:

Recently it was announced that due to an illness, the Judicial Qualifications Commission panel has decided that it would be best for you to “involuntarily retire.” I’m sure that wasn’t in your plans—to retire from the bench at age 50. After all, you were only on the bench as a circuit judge for what—maybe six years.

Now that you’re retiring, I strongly recommend you learn all that you can about God and His grace. And then I strongly recommend YOU REPENT of ALL of YOUR SINS!

If you chose otherwise, then I suggest you learn about THOSE whose LEGACY that YOU have CHOSEN to attempt to MIRROR. Such as, THE MURDERERS OF 14-YEAR-OLD, EMMET TILL (J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant) in Money, Mississippi; THE MURDERS OF ANDY GOODMAN, JAMES CHANEY, AND MICHAEL SCHWERNER (Klu Klux Klan members in Philadelphia, Mississippi); or maybe even more closer to your “expertise”—the EXECUTION OF 14-YEAR-OLD GEORGE STINNEY JR. in Columbia, South Carolina.

YOU see—if it had not been for those who were MURDERED by EVIL PEOPLE, such as YOURSELF, both YOU, and your former boss, STATE ATTORNEY WILLIE MEGGS, and your former co-worker, ASSISTANT STATE ATTORNEY JACK CAMPBELL, along with his dad, SHERIFF LARRY CAMPBELL—had ALL OF YOU EVIL PEOPLE had your way with MY 17-YEAR-OLD SON, DESHON THOMAS,–then MY SON would be sitting on FLORIDA’S DEATH ROW AS A WRONGLY CONVICTED TEEN—AWAITING HIS EXECUTION.



The week of October 13, 2013, in the double murder case against my son, State of Florida vs. DeShon Thomas, you coached your former co-worker, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell; you schemed with Regional Counsel Daren Shippy (who was supposed to be representing DeShon), and you allowed several perjured testimonies to go to the jury—including Don Odham being called “Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham”—when you knew that Don Odham was NEVER an employee of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office before or after DeShon was charged with the murders of his two friends and possession of a firearm. LEON COUNTY SHERIFF LARRY CAMPBELL and his son, ASSISTANT STATE ATTORNEY JACK CAMPBELL, along with STATE ATTORNEY WILLIE MEGGS, CHIEF ASSISTANT STATE ATTORNEY GEORGIA CAPPLEMAN, ASSISTANT STATE ATTORNEY ERIC TROMBLEY, CIRCUIT JUDGE JAMES C. HANKINSON, LEAD PUBLIC DEFENDER NANCY DANIELS, DEFENSE ATTORNEY GREG CUMMINGS, REGIONAL COUNSEL DAREN SHIPPY and a SLEW of OTHERS, SUPPORTED FRAUDULENT DOCUMENTS THAT HAD BEEN FILED WITH THE LEON COUNTY CLERK OF COURTS, PRESENTED TO A GRAND JURY, AND ULTIMATELY LED TO MY SON’S CONVICTION. YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE CRIMINALS.

Governor Rick Scott along with his fellow Judicial Qualifications Commission panel can dress up your “PATTERN OF MISCONDUCT” all they want—YOU showed a “PATTERN OF MISCONDUCT” before and after you began presiding over MY SON’S case. Your former colleague, former Second Circuit Judge JUDITH HAWKINS’ removal from the bench by the Judicial Qualifications Commission, wasn’t DRESSED UP the least little bit. But then again, JUDITH HAWKINS is a BLACK WOMAN.

In 2014, the Florida Supreme Court moved to remove Circuit Judge JUDITH HAWKINS from the bench after being found GUILTY by the Judicial Qualifications Commission for having promoted CHRISTIAN PRODUCTS and using court resources to operate her business, GAZA ROAD MINISTRIES. Considering ALL of the CORRUPTION COMING OUT OF THE LEON COUNTY COURTHOUSE, where Circuit Judge JUDITH HAWKINS mostly presided, seems to me like Judge HAWKINS was a LIGHT surround by DARKNESS.

Tallahassee, FL—As Jack Campbell prepares to run in the 2016 race for State Attorney of Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit in an attempt to PROLONG the EVIL that he has been taught under current State Attorney Willie Meggs—so much so that in Jack Campbell’s eyes–INNOCENT kids have “horns and tails”—this article can be as a ‘COMMUNITY ALERT’ for folks within the six counties within Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit—NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT! ACT IN ADVANCE TO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN. QUICKLY OBTAIN A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST JACK CAMPBELL!

Normal thinking prosecutors have a strong distaste for crimes that they prosecute on a regular basis—for instance—hundreds of times. Does anyone know who many cases Jack Campbell has prosecuted that involved “pedophiles walking around on playgrounds,” or pedophiles “in chat rooms?”  If Jack Campbell has repeatedly prosecuted criminal cases involving pedophiles—then where was WCTV News to report on the cases? Is it possible that Jack Campbell sees himself as a ‘third person’ when he talks about pedophiles?

Jack Campbell has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to deserve votes for State Attorney! What Jack Campbell has done—was allowed white males who are COLD-BLOODED MURDERS—to receive “SWEETHEART DEALS”—for their COLD and CALCULATED MURDERS—which delivered ABSOLUTELY NO JUSTICE to the victims’ families. For example: Jack Campbell prosecuted two black teenagers as adults. In 2012, fifteen-year-old, Khalid Muhammad and 15-year-old, Theodus Holloway were accused of raping a classmate in a dugout during school hours. The teenagers were students at Godby High School. Both Khalid and Theodus received 10-year prison sentences and will have to register as sex-offenders. In 2014, Jack Campbell prosecuted a 16-year-old white teenager named, Logan Murphy. Logan Murphy concealed a gun–entered into the home of the Butler Family, and then shot their son, 17-year-old, Robert Butler to death. Robert Butler was a black. The Leon County Sheriff’s Office immediately recovered the murder weapon—and then waited months before arresting him. Although Logan Murphy was charged as an adult, Adjudication was withheld–Logan Murphy was sentenced to 3 years in a juvenile detention facility and 15 years probation—Logan Murphy was not charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent—Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent would have automatically sent Logan Murphy to prison for 10 years. In 2013, seventeen-year-old, DeShon Thomas was convicted on Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder. Subsequently, after DeShon’s conviction, DeShon entered a plea of Nolo Contendre for Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent. DeShon, a black student who was in his freshman year at Tallahassee Community College at the time of his arrest in 2011, is INNOCENT OF ALL CHARGES. (TWO AND A HALF YEARS OF CORRUPTION PLAGUED DESHON’S PROSECUTION INVOLVING BOTH JACK CAMPBELL AND HIS DAD, LEON COUNTY SHERIFF LARRY CAMPBELL AND OTHERS.) In 2010, thanks to Jack Campbell and his dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, in the murder case against nineteen-year-old, Conor McBride, Conor McBride was allowed to have a “Restorative Justice Expert” play a role in his criminal prosecution. Conor McBride’s case was the FIRST MURDER CASE in the NATION where Restorative Justice played a role. Conor McBride, a white male, walked into the Tallahassee Police Department and confessed to shooting his 19-year-old girlfriend, Ann Grosmaire pointblank in the head with a shotgun while she cried and begged for her life. In spite of Sheriff Larry Campbell, State Attorney Willie Meggs and Jack Campbell having learned from Conor McBride’s parents that Conor McBride had “ A HISTORY OF ANGER ISSUES AND HAD A HISTORY OF ABUSING ANN (something Ann’s parents were completely in the dark about),” Conor McBride was sentenced to 20 years in prison and 10 years probation—thanks to the “CAMPBELL/MEGGS KLAN” and Restorative Justice—Conor McBride just may become someone else’s NIGHTMARE after he is released from prison. After all, prison is NOT the place to rehabilitate people with anger issues.

As far as Jack Campbell’s education on laws–who knows—maybe Samford University, Cumberland School of Law, does not want to be associated with Jack Campbell—and could care less if Jack Campbell acknowledges their school through WCTV. (Which by the way is the Samford University, Cumberland School of Law is also listed on Regional Counsel Daren Shippy’s Florida Bar Profile.) WCTV does not have a name associated with who wrote the article on their website entitled, “State Prosecutor Jack Campbell Plans 2016 State Attorney Run.”  Just maybe WCTV is in so deep with the “Campbell/MEGGS Klan,” that they’ll publish articles about Jack Campbell, but WILL NOT DARE list any of their employees as to having associated with him. (The same as most (if not all—Leon County Sheriff’s staff did with Don “Fake Cop” Odham.) By the way, has anyone from Florida State University’s College of Law confirmed whether or not if Jack Campbell did more than attend a walkthrough of their campus?
