Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens May Have Committed A Felony: AG

The Missouri attorney general’s office has uncovered “evidence of potential criminal acts of wrongdoing” by Gov. Eric Greitens, Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Tuesday.

At issue, Hawley said, is an electronic donor list Greitens obtained from a Missouri nonprofit called The Mission Continues. Evidence suggests Greitens unlawfully used that list to fundraise for his own political purposes, the AG said.

“[Greitens] did all of this without permission of The Mission Continues,” Hawley said at the Tuesday morning press conference. “This is known as computer tampering. Given the value of the list in question, it is a felony.”

Hawley said his office lacks the jurisdiction to prosecute the governor for the alleged crime. The AG’s office has passed the evidence along to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who will make the decision on whether to charge the governor, Hawley said.

As for whether the evidence is grounds for impeachment, Hawley said that’s a matter for Missouri state lawmakers to decide.

Last week, a woman who Greitens previously admitted to having an extramarital affair with in March 2015 revealed their sexual encounters weren’t always consensual and were sometimes violent.

The governor was arrested in February on charges of felony invasion of privacy related to the affair. The woman says Greitens blindfolded and took a nude photo of her without her permission, then used the photo to blackmail her into silence.

When asked about Hawley’s announcement on Tuesday, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), the vice chairman of the Senate GOP conference, said both the legislative and legal process “should be allowed” to play out.

“I believe both of those are appropriate at this moment to find out what the real facts are,” he told HuffPost.

The Mission Continues, which Greitens co-founded in 2007, helps veterans transition back into civilian life by placing them in volunteer roles with community organizations.

The nonprofit’s president, Spencer Kympton, acknowledged the investigation into Greitens’ alleged misuse of its resources in a statement released late last month.

“We are supporting various document requests and are fully cooperating with the agencies that are reviewing this situation,” Kympton wrote. “We look forward to the completion of those efforts in a timely manner.”

BREAKING: Man Who Sold Ammunition to Las Vegas Shooter Arrested on Felony Charges

The man who sold ammunition to Las Vegas shooting suspect Stephen Paddock was arrested on Friday and charged with conspiracy to manufacture and sell armor-piercing ammunition.

Douglas Haig, a 55-year-old aerospace engineer from Arizona, is now facing up to five years in prison for the transaction he made with Paddock before the deadly shooting that killed 58 people and injured more than 500. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Haig became a “person of interest” after FBI agents found “two unfired cartridges bearing Haig’s fingerprints” in Paddock’s suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

A criminal complaint filed against Haig claimed that he was selling “armor piercing ammunition throughout the U.S., including Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming, and South Carolina.” However, he does not “have a license to manufacture armor piercing ammunition.”

“I’m the guy that sold ammunition to Stephen Paddock,” Haig told reporters when his name was first released.

According to the report from the Review-Journal, Haig sells military surplus ammunition part-time as a “hobby,” and he first came in contact with Paddock in August 2017:

Haig met Paddock in person on Aug. 27 at a gun show in Phoenix. At the time, Haig did not have enough of the ammunition Paddock wanted, so Haig gave him his business card. 

A few days later, Paddock called Haig. Haig was at work, so the Arizona man asked Paddock to call him later. That’s when Haig gave him his personal address and allowed him to come pick up the ammunition. Paddock got lost on the way to Haig’s home, so he called him a third time, then eventually pulled up to the Arizona man’s address. 

“He said that he was going to go out to the desert and put on a light show either with or for his friends,” Haig said.

A statement from the U.S. attorney’s office noted that when Haig was interviewed by investigators, he maintained that Paddock did not use the tracer ammunition he purchased from Haig.

However, the statement noted that Haig became a “person of interest” after FBI agents found “his fingerprints were found on reloaded, unfired .308 caliber cartridges. Forensic examination also revealed that armor piercing ammunition recovered inside of the shooter’s rooms had tool marks consistent with Haig’s reloading equipment.”

As The Free Thought Project reported last month, a series of newly unsealed court documents gave insight into Paddocks communications in the months leading up to the shooting, and revealed that he apparently referred to himself as some kind of arms dealer:

In the first message, Paddock claimed that the recipient would have the opportunity to try out the weapons before they purchased them. He then wrote “We have huge selection,” indicating that he was not working alone, and he said he was located “in the Las Vegas area.”

While Paddock did live in Mesquite, Nevada, and reports claimed that he was a retired man living with his girlfriend, he made trips to Las Vegas often to gamble, and those who knew him described him as “low key and relaxed, a good guy.” His past included jobs with the IRS and the Department of Defense.

However, the email exchanges released by the FBI indicate that Paddock was presenting himself as some sort of arms dealer, sending an email that said, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.”

Douglas Haig has maintained that he is innocent and that his interaction with Paddock was nothing more than a “routine transaction.” He also said that he was horrified when he found out Paddock was the suspect in the shooting, and he has been communicating with the FBI ever since.

“I’ve had people pounding on my door, death threats, one woman screaming through my door that I should be killed and I should die,” Haig said, describing the attention he received after his name was publicly released.

The Review-Journal reported that Haig was released on bond pending a status conference on Feb. 15 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michelle Burns in Phoenix.

Police Charge Mechanic With ‘Felony Assault’ For Calling Them Out On Ticket Scheme


Bruce Redwine says that he has watched Fairfax County parking enforcement officer tickets his customers’ cars for expired tags or inspection stickers for several years now. Finally, he says that he has had enough and is speaking out.

In almost all cases, he explains, the vehicles are waiting at his garage for state inspection or repair at his Chantilly, Virginia autoshop.

The last time it happened, The Washington Post reports that “he snatched the latest ticket out of Officer Jacquelyn D. Hogue’s hand and added some profane commentary on top.”

Officer Hogue didn’t take kindly to having mean words written about her. As a result, she had Redwine arrested for felony assault on a police officer.

The most amazing thing is that parking enforcement officers aren’t technically police officers. But that didn’t stop her buddies on the force from charging him accordingly.

When the case first went to court, Redwine was sentenced to four days in jail.

Thousands of dollars in legal fees later, Redwine has appealed and won an acquittal. But the whole incident has left him extremely bitter.

The Washington Post reports that Redwine doesn’t “understand why Fairfax police have zealously sought to enforce laws on expired tags or inspections, mainly on drivers who are making the effort to get their cars into compliance, while on private property.”

Ray Barrera of A&H Equipment Repair said, “they’re harassing the small businesses trying to make it in this tough economy.”

He says his customers have been charged a total of $60,000 in fines and fees over the past years… all while parked on his private property, and all while awaiting inspection for the things they were being ticketed for.

DISNEY executive charged with felony child sex abuse … The empire of Disney has always had a child exploitation secret

 

(Natural News) The ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ isn’t really so happy for everyone, including some children — if you can believe that — which is ironic as can be, given that the entire Disney franchise began as a wondrous, child-based, family-oriented enterprise offering clean, wholesome, traditional values-based entertainment.

That’s why it shocked so many people when they learned recently that Disney exec, Jon Heely, was suspended without pay by the entertainment giant after being arrested on felony child sex abuse charges.

As reported by Breitbart News, Heely was the director of music publishing. He was charged with three counts of child sexual abuse involving two underage girls about a decade ago, who were 11 and 15 at the time. According to the charges, Heely abused the 11-year-old until she turned 15.

Heely, 58, was initially picked up by police in Santa Clarita, Calif., in November, and released on $150,000 bond. Then, just a few days ago, he pleaded not guilty to three counts of “lewd and lascivious acts on a child.”

Robert Helfend, his lawyer, denied every single one of the chargesVariety reported.

“He vehemently denies these allegations and we will be fighting until the end to clear his name,” Helfend said. “It’s a shame, that’s all I’ve got to say.”

Heely was first employed by Disney in 1981, where he managed licensing for hundreds of Disney films and produced a series of Disney concerts around the world.

“Immediately upon learning of this situation tonight, he has been suspended without pay until the matter is resolved by the courts,” a Disney spokesperson noted regarding Heely’s suspension.

The charges are already raising questions about the company’s knowledge of the allegations, as they came in the wake of charges a week earlier that the company was aware of Pixar chief John Lasseter’s alleged predatory behavior against female staffers, having assigned him a “handler to ensure he would not engage in inappropriate conduct with women,” according to entertainment site Deadline.

Lasseter has since taken a six-month leave of absence.

These are by no means the only incidents of Disney employees being arrested on charges related to child sex abuse. As HuffPost reported in July 2015, 35 Disney employees were arrested over a 10-year period, with 32 of those cases resulting in convictions at the time.

“Wherever you find children, you’ll find sexual predators that want to be there,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd observed. (Related: After pushing LGBT agenda for children, Disney files patent on cuddly robots that could be used as “sex toys” for children.)

CNN Investigations undertook an entire probe of “theme park employees” who were caught up in child sex allegations:

[Robert] Kingsolver, 49, is one of at least 35 Disney employees arrested since 2006 and accused of sex crimes involving children, trying to meet a minor for sex, or for possession of child pornography, according to a six-month CNN investigation that examined police and court records, and interviewed law enforcement officials and some of the men who have been arrested.

“My life is ruined,” he told the network during an interview. “My family’s life is ruined. My kids’ life is ruined. I’ve devastated my parents because of bad judgment.” He wound up pleading not guilty to soliciting a child for sexual acts and traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sexual activity.

When he was arrested by police, he believed he was going to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex at a home set up by Lake County, Fla., Sheriff’s Office detectives. He claimed he was only trying to protect the girl and that he was going to call police when he arrived there.

Other Disney employees caught up in police stings and child porn cases include security guards, a VIP tour guide, a costumer, a gift shop employee and maintenance workers, CNN reported.

Not such a happy place after all.

Mesquite Cop Indicted on Felony Charges of Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon


A Mesquite police officer has been indicted on felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by a public servant after shooting a man he mistook for a burglar, according to Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson.

The victim, Lyndo Jones, was getting into his car last month when he was shot by Mesquite Police Officer Derick Wiley.

Wiley, who said he thought Jones was a burglary suspect, was indicted by a Dallas County grand jury.

Wiley was placed on “indefinite suspension,” last month, effectively meaning he’d been fired, following an internal investigation. Mesquite Police Chief Charles Cato said the internal investigation revealed Wiley violated department policy, though he didn’t elaborate on which policy he was referring to.

Johnson said Wiley faces between five and 99 years, or life, if convicted.

Attorney Lee Merritt, who represents Jones in the case and has been critical of the Dallas district attorney, tweeted the following Wednesday afternoon.

“We’re grateful the GJ did their job in returning an indictment, however, we remain disappointed in DA Johnson who failed to do her job & file criminal charges. The reluctance to prosecute gives us little confidence in the office’s ability to secure a conviction.”

When asked about Meritt’s comments, Johnson said he didn’t have all of the facts in the case and that her office would be vigorously prosecuting the case and seeking the maximum punishment.
A bond of $300,000 has been ordered for Wiley.

WATCH: Arizona Police Officer Charged With Eight Felony Sex Crimes


An Arizona police officer is facing a slew of felony sex crime charges in California.

Jared Elkins, a 33-year-old officer with the Yuma Police Department, was charged with eight counts — including forcible rape, rape of an intoxicated person, forcible oral copulation and sexual penetration by use of force — for an alleged incident in San Diego, KGTV reported.

Elkins on Monday pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to KUSI.

Authorities on Sept. 14 responded to a Kensington home after receiving a phone call from the 23-year-old victim’s mother. She claimed in the 4 a.m. call that the Yuma officer had raped her daughter.

When they arrived, the victim was visibly intoxicated to the point where Elkins should have known she was unable to give consent, according to court documents.

At the time of the incident, the officer was off-duty, authorities confirmed. The relationship between Elkins and the woman is currently unknown.

Elkins, who has been married since 2013 is a seven-year veteran with the Yuma police department. He was placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the trial, and was released on $250,000 the day after his arrest.

He’s slated to return to court for a preliminary hearing on March 22. If convicted, Elkins faces up to 16 years behind bars.

Mom Arrested, Charged with Felony for Putting Recorder in 9yo’s Backpack to Catch Her Bully

schoolschool

Norfolk, VA — For weeks, Sarah Sims said she called and emailed school officials repeatedly to tell them her child was being bullied at school and was never given a response. So, she took matters into her own hands and now she is facing felony charges.

Sims discovered her daughter was being bullied in late September. So, like any parent would do, she reached out to school officials for help. But she received nothing.

“The thing that bothers me the most is that I am yet to get a response from anyone in the administration,” Sims added.

After being shrugged off by the school, Sims decided that she would take matters into her own hands and catch her 9-year-old daughter’s bully.

“I tried to be fair, but it’s not fair,” said Sims. “There is nothing fair about this.”

She wanted to obtain proof that nothing was being done to help her 4th-grader, so she put a digital recorder in her backpack to capture audio from inside the classroom.

“If I’m not getting an answer from you, what am I left to do?” she asked.

Shortly after placing the recorder in her daughter’s backpack, it was found by the school who has a no electronic device policy. Her daughter was then moved to a new class and police came after Sims.

“I was mortified,” Sims said. “The next thing I know, I’m a felon. Felony charges and a misdemeanor when I’m trying to look out for my kid. What do you do?”

Local news outlet WAVY contacted the Norfolk School system for a comment and they were told because it is a pending investigation no one could comment on what happened. We were told that in elementary schools, no electronic devices are allowed.

“They aren’t making this about that classroom,” said Sims’ attorney Kristin Paulding. “[These] are charges that carry jail time.”

According to WAVY, Sims was charged with felony use of device to intercept oral communication and misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The felony charge could carry five years in prison.

“Instead of comforting her she’s going to a magistrate and being handcuffed,” Paulding added.

For simply listening to what her own child went through during the day via a recording device, this mother is facing a felony charge that can land her in jail. Hopefully, as her attorney notes, these charges won’t hold up in court.

“We are at the very early stages of this, but even at the early stages I think the community needs to know that this is happening because any parent out there that is sending their child to school now could be at risk for something that happened to Sarah,” Paulding said.

Sadly, TFTP has reported on mothers putting recording devices in their child’s backpack to catch bullies after the school failed to act. Megan Dowdy was one of those mothers.

Dowdy said her son had been having night terrors. She suspected something wrong was happening at school, so she placed a recording device in her son’s pocket. Her child, who’s 13-years-old and autistic, has the cognitive skills of a first-grader and the communication capacity of a kindergartener, according to Dowdy. She said his behavior at night led her to believe something terrible was happening at school. She said, “He kept getting up during the night having night terrors, screaming, having meltdowns for no reason.”

What Dowdy found with her recorder was horrifying. Her autistic son’s bully was a cop.

A Pinellas County school resource officer, serving in Osceola Middle School, was caught on audio recordings abusing the autistic child. Ironically, the officer, Ural Darling, had been celebrated as one of Florida’s top school resource officers for his work in preventing bullying. All that has since changed now that Darling has been found to be the bully, caught by the student’s mother verbally torturing the child.

He was fired in August but unlike Sarah Sims in the story above—who merely tried to catch her daughter’s bully—the officer was not charged.

Uber Driver Arrested, Charged With a Felony—For Returning a Lost iPhone

uberuber

An Uber driver is facing felony grand larceny charges, fines and prison time, all because a rider seemingly wasn’t patient enough to wait for the driver to return the iPhone he left in her car. The rider went so far as to show up at 3:30 am looking for her. Adding insult to injury, the rideshare driver was arrested, hours after she’d already returned the phone to a local police precinct.

When Sylvia Hogge, an Uber driver in coastal Virginia, picked up Travis Price Nov. 3rd, she likely had no idea she was going to be taken on a ride through hell on earth. Hogge, a mother of four, and Uber driver for two years picked up and dropped off Price at the agreed upon locations. But what Hogge didn’t know, and what Price realized minutes later, was that the rider accidentally left his iPhone in her minivan.

Hogge went about her business of picking up and dropping off passengers on the busy November night, unaware Price left his phone in her car until she heard it ringing in the back seat. She retrieved it. Placed it in a safe location, and then got a call from Price. She said he demanded his phone back immediately.

It was him saying I needed to stop everything I was doing and bring him his phone immediately. I told him I could not because I had a passenger in the vehicle and I would get up with him first thing in the morning to return it to him.

Even though Uber’s lost item policy is for the forgetful party and the driver to agree upon a mutually approved location and time to return the left behind items, Price was being unreasonable, even making threats, Hogge said. The Uber driver said Price was being forceful, threatening to “track” her every movement until she brought the phone to him.

I knew that it had something to do with his phone. I was scared not just for myself, but for my passengers because if he was tracking everything, he would see here I would stop for pickups, he would see here I stopped for drop offs

But Hogge says after the person she would only identify as “Travis”, showed up reportedly drunk, at the home of her children’s father, she said she then feared for her safety and the safety of her children.

He told me there was a gentleman on his front step, banging on his door demanding to know where his phone is. I not only feared for his safety, but my children were sleeping there as well

Instead of meeting the drunk and belligerent man, who’d already traced the vehicle to the home it was registered to, and was banging on the door at 3:30 am, all of which is unreasonable, she thought of a safer option she believed. She decided to take the phone to a local Virginia Beach police station and leave it there for Price to retrieve. Here’s a photo she took of Price’ iPhone at the window of the police precinct, as she was dropping it off.

Hours later, much to her surprise, Hogge was told to come back to the police station to be arrested for theft of the cell phone Price left in her car. Yes, that’s right. Even after she’d returned the phone to the police, she was arrested for its theft. Price had asked for and received a warrant for her arrest. Here’s a copy of the warrant for her arrest.

Hogge was notified of the warrant for her arrest by a police detective’s phone call the morning after she’d already turned in the phone. She didn’t ignore the warrant but took some time to contact Uber, a federal agent friend, and others.

I called a federal officer I know and he said I needed to turn myself in right then and there. I made arrangements for my children, spent 3 hours on the phone with Uber (to come up with zero help from them) and finally turned myself in between 9pm and 930pm. I was released between 11pm and 1130pm.

How the police were unable to put two and two together, and drop the charges against Hogge is incredulous, to say the least. Nevertheless, Hogge was arrested hours after she’d turned in the cell phone to the Virginia Beach police department. Not only did she return the lost phone to a government authority capable of returning it to its rightful owner, but she was arrested after the fact. As a result, both police departments are likely liable for false arrest.

She told TFTP the police officers didn’t want to arrest her.

they didn’t want to arrest me to begin with. Never was cuffed, never was put in a cell.

Hogge set up a YouCaring page and is only asking for $5000 to defend herself in court. She says she’s not going to risk her future career in information technology by attempting to represent herself before the judge. To date, she’s only received $260 towards her $5000 goal.

She has a warning for other rideshare drivers out there:

I just want everyone to know, that this could happen to anyone at any point in time. I need everyone to know that if you have a left item in your vehicle, a report it to Uber, and return it to the police station immediately.

Here’s the story as first reported by Va Beach’ WKTR News 3.

Hodge says both she and her ex will be suing. For the record, she never gave TFTP his full name, only referring to him as “Travis.” However, we were able to ascertain his identity through comments left behind on social media. Also, Ms. Hodge’s attorney told her Mr. Price picked up his phone on the 6th of November but is apparently still pressing charges.

Dearborn Heights Police Officer Charged With Felony in Fatal Car Crash That Killed Man in Taylor


A Dearborn Heights police officer who crashed his cruiser into a vehicle, killing the 59-year-old Wixom man behind the wheel, has been charged with a felony that could put him behind bars for 15 years.

Larry Little, 32, was charged Tuesday with reckless driving causing death in connection with the crash that killed Timothy Turner.

The crash happened at about 8:20 p.m. Jan. 1 near Van Born and Pelham roads in Taylor. Little was driving a marked police car with his partner at a high rate of speed in a 40 mph zone when he struck the vehicle Turner was driving, according to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

The patrol vehicle was eastbound on Van Born and entered the intersection of Pelham, striking the Lexus ES 350 driven by Turner, who was heading west on Van Born, attempting to make a left turn onto southbound Pelham.

According to Worthy, the police car sped through the intersection without its emergency lights or sirens on.

Turner remained in the hospital for several days before being taken off life support.

The two officers were extricated from the patrol vehicle and taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Both were later released.

Allen Park officers assisted in the investigation of the crash scene that was later turned over to Michigan State Police.

Little originally was charged with moving violation causing death, a misdemeanor punishable by a year in jail and/or $2,000 fine if convicted. His attorney filed a motion to dismiss the charge, which was denied by 23rd District Judge Geno Salomone. In his ruling, Salomone said that operating a police car without lights and sirens should be charged as a reckless act rather than as negligence.
