Tallahassee’s League of EVIL: There’s a virus in Tallahassee’s Judicial System That’s Worse Than the Ebola virus—It’s Called, “Corruption”

Published October 18, 2014 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—It’s been one year ago today (October 18, 2013), when it was announced that DeShon Thomas was convicted on Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder. As it was posted on maul10.com, DeShon’s mother did a “praise dance” upon hearing the announcement—and rightfully so.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! Jesus was falsely prosecuted—He died so that we can have life! DeShon still has his life!

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.

Daniel 10:14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Daniel 12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake. Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.

DeShon’s arrest did not push DeShon and his family into the bosom of Jesus Christ. DeShon and his family have always been in the bosom of Jesus Christ. If this were not so—officials in Tallahassee would be going about their business as usual—instead of being concerned about what DeShon’s mother is “going to do next”.

On January 28, 2011, the day after the victims were found murdered, DeShon and his mother voluntarily went down to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office to give a statement. Don Odham, a White man who presented himself as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective, violated many of DeShon’s Civil Rights—including denying DeShon the right to an attorney. Detective Odham and DeShon’s mother had a heated exchange of words. DeShon’s mother informed Detective Odham that he was making a huge mistake with his handling of DeShon—as a minor and as a child of God! Instead of taking heed to DeShon’s mother, Detective Odham kicked DeShon’s mother out of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office—refusing to allow DeShon to leave with her.

Detective Odham played a huge role in DeShon being charged with the murders. Approximately seven months of DeShon’s being charged with the murders, Detective Don Odham, himself, was no longer associated with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Furthermore, Detective Odham was NEVER a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective—obsolete from the payroll. Mr. Odham was a friend of Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and Sheriff’s Campbell’s son, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell. It was Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell and Mr. Odham who would forge ahead with falsifying court documents. And recruit a slew of other judicial officials, including State Attorney Willie Meggs and Leon County Sheriff’s officials, including members of Sheriff Larry Campbell Command Staff—to ensure the conviction of DeShon. DeShon is INNOCENT!

Psalm 3:7 Arise, O Lord; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

PARENTS BE AWARE: Clearly, (Tallahassee) Florida 2nd Judicial State Attorney Willie Meggs and Chief Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman Knowingly Presented Documents Containing Fraudulent Information to a Grand Jury to Receive an Indictment on a Black Male 17-year-old Tallahassee Community College Freshman

Published October 11, 2014 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—Despite having received laboratory reports from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation that DID NOT connect 17-year-old DeShon Thomas to the double homicide of his pregnant ex-girlfriend and her 17-year-old brother, Florida 2nd Judicial State Attorney Willie Meggs and Chief Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman moved forward with presenting the case to the grand jury. But not before Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell filed documents received by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office that had been padded with false information. Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell is the father of Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell who is employed by State Attorney Willie Meggs. The two Campbell’s have a history of working together in the investigation and prosecution of criminal cases in Tallahassee—this father/son team supported by judges willing to deny defendants their rights and deputies willing to commit perjury—have guaranteed convictions and positive resume builder for both Campbell’s.

If past criminal cases were handled like the case of 17-year-old DeShon Thomas’ case, then more than likely the same motive of operation was used—documents containing fraudulent information were presented to get convictions—not evidence. In DeShon Thomas’ case, State Attorney Willie Meggs and Chief Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman were well aware of the fraudulent information prior to going in front of the grand jury.

PARENTS BE AWARE: CLEARLY, ELECTED OFFICIALS IN FLORIDA’S CAPITOL CITY ARE PREDATORS—STATE ATTORNEY WILLIE MEGGS AND LEON COUNTY SHERIFF LARRY CAMPBELL ARE DESPERATE, IMMORAL AND SICKENING! THEY PREY ON OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN!

Florida State Agency Leaders Serving Under Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi Use War Tactics Against Disabled Black Teen

Published October 2, 2014 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—The United States does not fund terrorist groups mainly because the United States is well aware that any funds provided to them will more than likely further their influence to attack America. Terrorist groups are a threat to Americans life, freedom, and liberty. The most common pre-war tactic used by the United States to prevent a full onset war is to cut off all funding to countries that pose a threat and/or not provide any funding at all to terrorist groups.

For nearly three years, DeShon Thomas’ mother begged Governor Scott and Attorney General Bondi to assign a special prosecutor to the double murder case in which DeShon was the lone defendant. The reason for the begging was due to the double murder case, which began on January 27, 2011, being investigated by Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and then Second District State Attorney Willie Meggs, assigning the case to be prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell. Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell are father and son.

DeShon, who was a 17-year-old freshman at Tallahassee Community College and employee at a local fast-food restaurant, was charged and arrested based on incriminating statements said to have been made by a disgruntle male friend. DeShon, who entered a plea of Not Guilty, was up against a father and son investigating and prosecuting team. When DeShon’s mother learned that this “Team” was not considered unethical and was told that the “Team” did not pose bias against DeShon, that’s when DeShon’s mother began to beg for a special prosecutor to be assigned to the case. Grant it DeShon’s mother was not the defendant, but her actions were requested by her son, DeShon—as well as those of nature.

As DeShon’s case went fast forward down the path of malicious prosecution, DeShon’s mother learned that the defense attorney that she hired, Mr. Cummings, had conspired with Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson and State Prosecutor Jack Campbell to deny DeShon a fair trial. As DeShon’s private attorney, Mr. Cummings failed to disclose simple information that could have gotten DeShon exonerated. Key pieces of evidence such as DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records and the two victims’ autopsy reports. According to court records, before DeShon was ever charged with the two murders, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office received and reviewed DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records. Upon reviewing DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office filed a Motion to have DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records Sealed by Court Order. The motion was immediately granted by Leon County Judge Ronald Flury. DeShon’s mother had paid Mr. Cummings nearly $30,000—Mr. Cummings refused to file the necessary court document to have DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records UnSealed. Instead, in an attempt to deceive DeShon and his mother, Mr. Cummings provided DeShon’s mother with an excel spreadsheet that had been created by Leon County Sheriff’s Criminal Analyst Leslie Rabon. Mr. Cummings was fired.

As DeShon’s mother continued to beg Governor Scott and Attorney General Bondi to intervene, those elected officials and other judicial officials such as, Circuit Judge Hankinson, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford, State Attorney Willie Meggs, Public Defender Lead Nancy Daniels, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell and his dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and some of Sheriff Campbell’s Deputies and DeShon’s own court appointed Regional Counsel, Daren Shippy, continued to conspire against DeShon. So much so, that documents containing false information was filed with the Leon County Clerk of Courts.

It was bad enough that Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell allowed his wealthy personal friend, Mr. Don Odham, to act as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective, when in fact Mr. Odham was not even on the payroll–and was far from being qualified to be a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective. It was Mr. Odham’s wanna-be detective—as to what led to DeShon being charged with the murders.  According to court documents, Mr. Odham, who is being referred to as Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Odham, also participated in searching the inside of the victims’ townhome—which was the crime scene. Neither Mr. Odham nor the disgruntle friend whom Mr. Odham claimed provided incriminating statements directly to him were ever deposed.

In October 2013, Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford knowingly allowed the jury to hear perjured testimony in order to ensure State Prosecutor Jack Campbell received a conviction. DeShon, who was being represented by Regional Counsel Daren Shippy, had long had his rights violated by the Office of Regional Conflict and Criminal Counsel’s Office, which is under Regional Counsel of the First District, Jeffery Lewis. Despite all of the corruption, and getting DeShon convicted and sentenced to Two Life Sentences plus 30 years, Florida State Agencies are still not satisfied.

Former Lincoln High School special education student, Anthony Goss, was sixteen years-old at the time of DeShon being charged with the murders. Anthony Goss, a stand out in among Special Olympic Athletes of the Big Bend, is the cousin of DeShon’s. Anthony Goss has received several metals and awards for his outstanding accomplishments in sports and in school.

Natives of Orlando—in 1995, when DeShon’s mother was 23-years-old, Anthony’s mother (DeShon’s mother’s older sister who was mentally disabled) asked DeShon’s mother to care for Anthony. Anthony was born HIV positive. At the time, DeShon’s mother had two sons of her own, was living with DeShon’s dad and was also attending Valencia Community College in Orlando, where she was pursuing an Associate in Arts Degree in Paralegal Studies. Anthony, who was born HIV positive, was nine months old at the time—he would have gone into a Florida foster home had DeShon’s mother not taken him into her home.

While early medications given to Anthony as an infant helped Anthony’s immune system shed the HIV virus out of his blood system, about two years after DeShon’s mother received Anthony into their home, Anthony’s mother succumb to AIDS—leaving behind Anthony and two older children.

Anthony was diagnosed as Educable Mentally Handicapped. Because of Anthony’s disability, Anthony qualified to receive financial and medical benefits through Social Security Supplemental Income. It is Anthony’s Social Security Supplemental income in which has been threatened to be discontinued. After DeShon’s mother filed a complaint with the Florida Department of Health against Associate Medical Examiner Dr. Anthony Clark for committing perjury during DeShon’s trial—DeShon’s mother has received several acts of intimidation.

Discontinuing funds to Anthony will hurt Anthony. Although DeShon’s mother is Anthony’s representative payee, their household bills are pretty much divided to benefit Anthony—and it has always been that way. No amount of money could compensate DeShon’s mother for the sacrifices that she’s made—not for just her sons but the children of others. DeShon’s mother, who ended up dropping out of college to care for her family, could only raise someone else’s children—children with special needs—through love—not the love of money.

DeShon, himself, had more than enough love—but didn’t realize it—which is common for a teenager. The only thing DeShon is guilty of—is befriending those who received little to know love in their own homes. DeShon cared more about his friends than their parents—particularly the two that he’s been convicted of murdering—that’s mainly why the Leon County Sheriff’s Office motioned to have DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records Sealed. Acting in their haste to want DeShon to be the murderer—the Leon County Sheriff’s Office wanted to show that DeShon was angry with the female victim and had stopped communicating with her due to her pregnancy—stating that DeShon didn’t want to be a father. THE LEON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WAS WRONG! Not only will DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records show that DeShon and the female victim were constantly communicating—and were friends—the female victim’s medical records and statements from relatives reflect that DeShon wanted to be a father. That is why after DeShon had been in the Leon County Jail for nearly a year, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell set out to make the double murders gang related. DeShon did not commit the murders.

The war tactic—the cutting off of funds to Anthony with the belief that DeShon’s mother will be silenced—is worthless! No parent should ever let money stop them from speaking the truth. DeShon, who was a child, expected a fair trial—and the State of Florida LIED on a child. Currently, the State of Florida—Tallahassee, is being run by a bunch of elected LIARS! Whatever “Threat” those LYING officials believe that they’re under—it’s one that they, themselves created.

After DeShon was charged with the murders, who was more afraid, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell or his daddy, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell or State Attorney Willie Meggs?

Clearly, someone had to be afraid of replacing State Prosecutor Jack Campbell. One thing for sure, the Campbell’s are making sure that they don’t go down alone.

Tallahassee—Ready For Benjamin Crump as State Attorney for Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit!

Published September 1, 2014 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL— Parks and Crump Attorney at Law is located a few blocks from downtown Tallahassee. Attorney Daryl Parks and Attorney Benjamin Crump have spent years fighting for the rights of those who could not fight for themselves. As a Tallahassee, Florida resident, Attorney Benjamin Crump is often seen in the community.

At the tender age of forty-four, Attorney Benjamin Crump’s profile states, “he has set a significant legal legacy that ensures that the promise found in our nation’s constitution is indeed real in every state, municipality and neighborhood.” As a Florida State University of Law School graduate, Mr. Crump is both an influential and inspirational American attorney.

Currently, Willie Meggs is the State Attorney for Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit. While Mr. Meggs has been State Attorney since 1985, it is said by many longtime Tallahassee citizens that Mr. Meggs is like a ‘moronic cousin’, in which one can never understand what he’s thinking when he opens his mouth.

In August 2012, State Attorney Willie Meggs told WCTV’s Julie Montanaro that DeShon Thomas had been charged with Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder. In the press release, in regards to the “hit man” that Mr. Thomas had supposedly solicited, State Attorney Willie Meggs states, It could have happened at anytime because the person that was supposed to be doing it was in fact … had made bond and was out.” State Attorney Willie Meggs did not inform WCTV that the 27-year-old “hit man” had recently been captured in Tifton, Georgia by the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force for Two Armed Banks Robberies in Tallahassee. Nor did State Attorney Willie Meggs inform WCTV that the State Attorney’s Office and the Leon County Sheriff’s Office provided financial support to the dual bank robber, who was already a once convicted felon.

DeShon Thomas, who was a Tallahassee Community College student, was 17-years-old when he was charged with double murder. Mr. Thomas’ judicial proceedings were corrupt from the start. As Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and his son, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell, along with State Attorney Willie Meggs and Mr. Don Odham, a family friend of the Campbell’s, all falsified the Summary of Offense for Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Probable Cause. Mr. Odham, who had been referred to as Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham, replaced Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Melinda McBride on the double homicide investigation. It was Detective Don Odham’s own independent investigation in the double homicide case that led Detective Odham to prepare the Summary of Offense for Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Probable Cause in which Mr. Thomas was then charged. With Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell’s approval, the Summary of Offense for Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Probable Cause was filed with the Leon County Clerk of Courts.  A year and a half after Mr. Thomas’ arrest, it was said that Detective Don Odham was NOT a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective at ALL. Mr. Don Odham had been allowed to falsify legal documents, including law enforcement incident reports. According to documents, Mr. Odham also took part in the Crime Scene Investigation.

For over a decade, the air in Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit has been FILTHY!

Attorney Benjamin Crump as State Attorney in Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit will bring a fresh and clean scent to at least one DECAYING county (Leon) of the six counties it covers.

 

 

 

DeShon Thomas is INNOCENT!!!!!

 

Parks & Crump Hires Celebrity Dr. Michael Baden to Perform Autopsy on Unarmed Teen in Ferguson, MO; Meanwhile, Florida State Prosecutor Jack Campbell, son of Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, Refuse to Release Autopsy Reports of Victims in the Case of Black Teen College Student Charged with Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder; Subsequently, Wrongfully Convicting Teen and Leaving Real Murderer Out in the Community (Tallahassee) or Abroad

Published August 29, 2014 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—Parks &Crump Attorney at Law is headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida. Parks & Crump have been in the news media several times in regards to Wrongful Death cases. Most recent in Ferguson, Missouri where an unarmed teen was executed by a police officer while the teens hands were up in the air. Officials in Ferguson, Missouri started out being secret about what led up to the police officer shooting six shots into the teen, why the teens body lay out in the middle of the street for four or more hours, and the autopsy of the teen. Why?

Why did Parks & Crump have to hire Dr. Michael Baden to come perform an autopsy on a murdered teen?

The citizens of Ferguson, MO pay taxes that in turn pay the salaries for the medical examiner’s employees, including the police officer that executed the teen, as well as the salaries of other government officials. What would have happened if Parks & Crump would not have had the $10,000 examination fee to pay Dr. Michael Baden? Are ordinary citizens going to have to start setting money aside on top of paying taxes to gain access to documents that are considered to be ‘Public Record’?

On January 27, 2011, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell began investigating a double homicide case in southeast Tallahassee. The victims were 20-year-old Laqecia Herring and her 17-year-old brother, Sterling Conner Jr. While Julie Montanaro with local news station WCTV, along with other WCTV news reporters informed the community that the autopsy report of Ms. Herring revealed that she was twenty-one weeks pregnant, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell refused to allow the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office to release the autopsy report as Public Record.

Seventeen-year-old DeShon Thomas, a Black teen, who was attending his freshman year at Tallahassee Community College and crew member at Taco Bell, was the main focal point for Leon County Sheriff Detectives. On January 28, 2011, DeShon and his mother walked into the Leon County Sheriff’s Office asking to speak with a detective to inform them of threats that DeShon was aware of that had been made against the female victim. DeShon was bothered by the threats because the victim may have been pregnant with his child. Not long after they arrived at the sheriff’s office, DeShon and his mother were being subjected to racist vulgar, stripped apart, refused access to an attorney, DeShon was served with a number of search warrants, DeShon and his mother were locked in a room, held totally against their will, and hours later when DeShon was said to be placed under arrest by Detective Don Odham, Det. Odham refused to tell DeShon and his mother why DeShon was being arrested.

A few hours later, DeShon’s mother received a phone call to come pick up DeShon from the Juvenile Assessment Center. DeShon had been charged with Cultivation of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. It was reported in the Probable Cause Report that five pots of soil with marijuana stems sprouting from them had been located in the bedroom closet of DeShon’s co-worker, 21-year-old Trentin Ross. DeShon had been temporarily sleeping on the couch at Mr. Ross’ one-bedroom apartment. It was during the time when DeShon and his mother were at the Leon County Sheriff’s Office as to when detectives executed the search warrant at Mr. Ross’ one bedroom apartment. It was reported that while Mr. Ross admitted to watering the plants and turning the lights on over the plants, Mr. Ross would not say how the plants got into his bedroom closet. Mr. Ross was also charged with Cultivation of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Mr. Ross was also questioned by Lead Detective Melinda McBride and Lieutenant Tim Baxter about DeShon’s whereabouts the night of January 26, 2011 and the early morning hours of January 27, 2011. Mr. Ross told both Detective McBride and Lieutenant Baxter that DeShon was at work—Taco Bell located in northeast Tallahassee (nineteen miles away from the crime scene).

DeShon told Detective Odham and Detective McBride that he was at work. Both the manager and another crew member told detectives that DeShon was at work. DeShon’s timesheet shows that he was in fact at work. According to DeShon’s timesheet, DeShon clocked in at 1805 on January 26, 2011 and clocked out at 0130 on January 27, 2011. DeShon’s manager and co-worker informed detectives that DeShon was at work for his entire shift. DeShon’s co-worker also informed detectives that he gave DeShon a car ride to Mr. Ross’ apartment, which is located less than a half-mile away from Taco Bell. Neither DeShon nor Mr. Ross owned a vehicle.

According to the Leon County Discovery Report, in regards to Ms. Herring’s (female victim) outgoing cell phone activity, the last outgoing cell phone activity was a text to DeShon’s cell phone on January 26, 2011 at 10:59 p.m. Ms. Herring, who was the mother of a toddler at the time of her death, was known to use her cell phone regularly during the late night and into the early morning. The victims’ mother informed detectives that she’d taken Ms. Herring and Ms. Herring’s toddler daughter to the residential two-story townhome (which is also the mother’s residence) around 10 p.m. and they all went inside. The victims’ mother also informed detectives that her son, Sterling (the male victim) was not home during the time that she’d spent in the home. The victims’ mother left to go spend the night with her significant other around 10:30 p.m. She never saw Sterling alive that night.

The following morning, on January 27, 2011, around 10:20 a.m. when she returned home with her 16-year-old son and her significant other, there in the living room, was both of her children, they were deceased. However, while Ms. Herring’s body was setting in a comfortable position—in a chair—a position in which any experienced detective—let alone a county sheriff would say that she (Ms. Herring) clearly never saw the gun or the bullet coming her way—Sterling’s body was wrapped in two comforters nearly at the feet of Ms. Herring’s body. So much so, that the mother told detectives that she didn’t see him when she entered into the home. It wasn’t until her 16-year-old son saw him and made a statement that made her realize that there was someone else dead under the comforter. Neither the victims’ mother nor brother unwrapped the comforter to confirm that it was in fact Sterling.

After detectives began to investigate the crime scene, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell arrived at the scene. Detectives reported that there was a bullet hole in the comforter where Sterling’s head was located. As detectives began to unwrap one of the comforters, they were able to line up the bullet hole to a gunshot wound to the side of Sterling’s head. Detectives reported that there was no sign of forced entry or a struggle. Both victims were shot two times each—both shots to their head. According to a Crime Scene Log-In Sheet, FDLE officials worked the scene, but no one from the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office arrived at the scene.

Dr. Anthony Clark, with the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office began to perform the autopsies of the victims’ on the morning of January 28, 2011. By then, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office had obtained a Court Order for DeShon’s AT&T cell phone records and had DeShon being GPS tracked by his cell phone via AT&T. Leslie Rabon with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office requested AT&T to update her and Chris Corbitt with the Tallahassee Police Department of DeShon’s movements every fifteen minutes. In this request, Ms. Rabon left out all of the other law enforcement agencies, including Tallahassee Community College Police Office, in regards of such. At the time of Dr. Clark’s examination of Sterling, Dr. Clark located a bullet wound to the back of Sterling’s head. Although it may not be noted, this bullet wound to the back of Sterling’s head had to be the first bullet wound to enter into Sterling because of the point of entry and there not being a bullet hole in the comforter to line up with that particular wound. Any experienced detective and county sheriff must know that a person will not allow another person to wrap them in two comforters and then shoot them in the head.

In the victims’ mother’s statement, at no time was she asked nor did she mention, if the night of January 26, 2011, when she’d brought her daughter and granddaughter home, if she’d physically checked the residence to see if Sterling was in the home or if she’d just not seen Sterling in the downstairs area and assumed that Sterling was not at home.

Experienced medical examiners are aware that there are various aspects that have to be taken into account when it comes to the three stages of rigor mortis. Although Dr. Clark noted Ms. Herring was pregnant and overweight, Ms. Herring’s stage of rigor mortis was not consistent with that of her brother, Sterling’s. Dr. Clark noted that Sterling’s was physically fit for a 17-year-old and that Sterling’s stage of rigor mortis was in the moderate to full. According to Dr. Clark’s court testimony, since he did not come to the crime scene, he used crime scene photos and what he observed when he came in contact with the bodies as to determine the stage of rigor mortis when the victims were found murdered. Dr. Clark stated that Sterling was in the 2nd stage of rigor mortis. The 2nd stage of rigor mortis occurs after the victim has been deceased for 12 hours or more.

In the Summary of Offense for Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder and Probable Cause drafted by Leon County Sheriff Detective Don Odham and Approved by State Prosecutor Jack Campbell on February 7, 2011, Detective Don Odham states that Mr. Ross voluntarily came to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and gave incriminating statements to him in regards to the murders. Detective Don Odham states that Mr. Ross used his girlfriend’s car to drive DeShon to the victims’ residence around 4 a.m. the morning of January 27, 2011. As Detective Don Odham reports that Mr. Ross parked across the street from the victims’ residence and later heard two gunshots around 4:15 a.m. (It’s no wonder why State Prosecutor Jack Campbell refused to allow the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office to allow the victims’ autopsy reports to be made a matter of Public Record. No doctor in their right mind would testify that between 4:15 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. (approx. 6 hours) that a victim would be in an advance stage of rigor mortis, unless there was a question about the conditions of the environment—something Dr. Clark would not know about because neither Dr. Clark nor anyone from the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office came to the crime scene.)  DeShon was charged with the murders. DeShon entered Not Guilty on all charges. DeShon is INNOCENT!         

DeShon had a private attorney by the name of Gregory Cummings who was fired. DeShon had several court-appointed attorneys. DeShon’s court appointed attorneys filed Motions to Withdraw. Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson violated DeShon’s right to due process, while allowing State Prosecutor Jack Campbell to act out prosecutorial misconduct. Circuit Judge Hankinson was taken off of the case. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell used every resource available to his advantage of being the son of the criminal investigation agency—the prosecution of 17-year-old DeShon Thomas was without a doubt a “Family and Friends Affair”. During DeShon’s trial, DeShon and his mother learned that Detective Don Odham was not a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective at all—Detective Don Odham was not on the payroll—was not creditable—instead, he was a friend of the Campbell Family. None of DeShon’s attorney would file documents for the victims’ autopsy reports to be made Public Record.

Florida Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi were notified about the corruption as it played out over the nearly three years that it took for DeShon to go to trial. DeShon’s mother begged for a Special Prosecutor—to no avail. DeShon’s mother informed Attorney General Pam Bondi about the judge allowing perjured testimony to go to the jury—to no avail.

Dr. Michael Baden waived his $10,000 fee in the Ferguson case, saving Parks & Crump money to go toward other costs that will help the teen’s family in their seek for justice. In a press conference, Dr. Baden seemed to be disgusted by simply having to perform an autopsy because the local medical examiner’s office couldn’t be trusted—they were not releasing any information to the teen victim’s family. Dr. Baden told the press that, “We all deserve and should expect transparency in death investigation.”

History has shown us time and time again—that where there’s cover-up—there’s CORRUPTION.
