For Baxter, truth is inconvenient

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

 

Good Old Kevin Baxter can sure spin things away from truth whenever he wants, and a recent letter to the editor is a perfect example. Old Kevin made serious objection to a recent Register editorial critical of his office for issuing a flawed warrant that delayed the arrest of a child rapist.

The man was arrested "just 37 days" after an indictment was returned by a grand jury, Baxter says. I don't know about you, but even 37 days is too long for a child rapist to be free and on the loose. The man was accused in August 2006 and arrested by U.S. Marshals in late December that same year, so the actual delays were much longer than Baxter's spin. And local officials never lifted a finger to make an arrest after the flawed warrant was finally issued.

Baxter ignored repeated requests for documentation on the case and, when questioned directly about it on two seperate occasions, he stared back with a glassy-eyed look and feigned ignorance on the entire topic. How convenient. Play dumb when it serves you, Kevin, and then be filled with righteous indignation when you get called on your shortcomings.

Baxter also ignored written requests for the information, and for information on other flawed warrants that might have resulted in at least one other child rapist getting a free pass in Erie County. There are plenty of examples, but Baxter's abnormal need for secrecy keeps most under the radar.

And Baxter is quick to dump on his best buds whenever he gets put on the hot seat, including pointing the finger at the sheriff or deputies, or old best old bud county commissioner Tom Ferrell Jr. Kevin also will blame city officials for their shortcomings if that helps Kevin's cause. Kevin covers Kevin's butt -- and every other good old boy's behind -- as long as it serves Kevin.

It's time to cut the crap. You cannot fix a problem if you deny it exists, and when the sheriff's office has more than 800 outstanding warrants -- with serious felony crimes getting lost in bureaucracy -- there must be something wrong with the system.

If anyone is misrepresenting the facts, Kevin, it's you.

Yep, ALL truth here.

Me thinks that all these lawyers in Baxter's office log onto sanduskyregister.com and post lots of comments all day long. Which one of the lawyers is Buff? Your tax dollars hard at work folks.

Elsebeth Baumgartner had absolute proof that the Lorain County law firm of BAUMGARTNER & O'TOOLE (no relation to EB) had defrauded the taxpayers of BCS schools through improper, unapproved legal contracts and fraudulent billings. Baumgartner & O'Toole were also involved with Erie County prosecutor KEVIN BAXTER'S private business obtaining a federal grant through the Vermilion Port Authority. Baumgartner & O'Toole were also involved with the ERIE METROPARKS legal counsel (and made a TON of money) while they battled CPPR over the "Huron River Greenway" project.

JUDGE MARKUS, the old fart that claimed EB intimidated him, has close ties with DENNIS O'TOOLE. Baumgartner & O'Toole provided a lot of business to old Judge Markus. Dennis O'Toole also has ties with CIRIGILIANO.

The PROSECUTORS and LAW DIRECTORS in Amherst, Oberlin, Wellington, Kipton and South Amherst are ALL ATTORNEYS from the firm of BAUMGARTNER & O'TOOLE.
Margaret O'Bryon (one of the attorneys in the firm and the prosecutor for the village of Kipton and part-time prosecutor for Amherst) has been engaged in the practice of law in Lorain County and ERIE COUNTY since 1993. She began her career in the ERIE COUNTY PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE.......

For what it's worth I believe Dennis O'Toole (who lives in Erie County) and his law firm full of PROSECUTORS and LAW DIRECTORS are the INFAMOUS SILENT PARTNERS in the Marina District.

Everything sure does seem to be tying in here and its plain to see that Kim Nuesse does not stand a chance in this corrupt county just like Elsbeth and nobody else does. But take heart people I think the corruption is slowly starting to unravel.....Stay tuned because there's lots more to come.

Was Baxter drunk when he wrote that third letter to the editor or did one of his staff attorneys write it for him? All three of the letters to the editor have been defensive in nature.

There are some common traits that liars share. Liars get defensive when confronted or questioned or they evade or ignore the questions. Liars also act like they have no idea what you are talking about when questioned. Liars also want to change the subject.

Truthful people welcome all questions as they have nothing to hide.

Why is Baxter so uncomfortable with Matt's questions?

In Kevin's fourth letter to editor, I hope that he will provide answers to the following questions.

1) Baxter ignored repeated requests for documentation on the child rapist case. WHY?

2) When questioned directly about it on two separate occasions, he stared back with a glassy-eyed look and feigned ignorance on the entire topic. WHY did you feign ignorance?

3) Baxter also ignored written requests for the information, and for information on other flawed warrants. WHY?

4) Why didn't you call in the Ohio Attorney General to investigate the Nuesse case?

5) Why was Murman and an old judge hired at great expense to the taxpayers of Sandusky when the Attorney General would have investigated the Nuesse case for FREE?

6) Why did you make changes to the Murman Report on your own without consulting Murman first? Did you read the final draft of the Murman Report before it was released?

It's time to cut the crap. You need to stop sending defensive letters to the editor and start answering some questions. When you write your fourth letter to the editor, you need to answer the above six questions and not evade or ignore them.

Anonymous

And while your answering all of those questions MR. BAXTER I have a TON of questions, too. First question---WHO in the HELL gave ERIE COUNTY and the Lorain County law firm of BAUMGARTNER & O'TOOLE the right to transfer ownership of TRUST PROPERTY on a proven to be FORGED power of attorney HIDDEN from family members in the Lorain County Recorder's office? Wouldn't that be considered a CRIMINAL ACT?

It's time for Baxter to step down. Maybe he can sell televisions with his friend Tom Ferrell after he loses on Nov. 4th. They deserve one another! Both scum of the earth.

What does the fact that Ms. Goodrum is African American have to do with anything? Did your research uncover the fact that Krista also had another trial, was represented by another lawyer, and (Oh my god) found GUILTY!!!
Tell me it isn't so!!
If you have the guts to talk trash about somebody that you don't know, why not be man or woman enough to use your real name? Only a low life, piece of crap (hint, hint) would talk trash about somebody that he or she doesn't now and not reveal him or herself. Why not stay off this blog until you have something educational or informative to say? Use some of this negative energy on something positive. I guess it's true what they say: misery loves company.

After reading Krista Harris's APPEAL I was throughly disgusted. EXACTLY TO THE T SO LIKE CORRUPT ERIE COUNTY IS KNOWN TO WORK. Her first two attorneys are dirty, sneaky local gobs, the third Elsebeth Baumgarner gets shut up real fast and then Cheryl Goodrum the AFRO-AMERICAN attorney. Considering Baxter's known fondness for black women how much PLAINER can it possibly get......Does anybody by any chance know how GOODRUM got her high-paying assistant prosecutor job or is that a stupid question?

According to Baxter a forged Power of Attorney (drafted up by an Erie County attorney and hidden in Lorain County by a Lorain County attorney) an illegal transfer of Erie County property, forged Prudential documents, forged checks deposited at a local Key Bank (i.e. Albany, New York) for over a year after the decedent's death and a forged Will (signed by two Erie County judges and filed two years after the decedent's death by a Lorain County attorney) was NOT criminal.....
Could somebody please enlighten me as to what this Krista Harris did that WAS criminal. I'm confused.......

Thank you for clarifying O.R.C. 2913.61(C). I am truly concerned about Krista Harris's situation. I have read, and reread all of the comments and starting doing some research about her case. It is truly unbelievable that something like this could happen to a person in this day and age. Listen, according to all of the court documents that pertain to her appeal, and others that were provided to me, Krista Harris was charged with 17 felonies involving an alleged theft of monies from her elderly aunt. Krista alleged that the monies were given to her through a valid power of attorney. Okay. Now lets give the Kevin Baxter the benefit of the doubt in this matter. No we can't. Kevin Baxter, Dean Holman, and his assistants railroaded this poor lady on sham theft charges. The law states under Ohio Revised Code Section 2913.61(C) that Krista Harris could have only legally been charged with a SINGLE OFFENSE. So why in the HE&& was she at the least overcharged with 16 more felonies. I am absolutely sickened by this. Oh, I haven't even begun to look into her claims of Double Jeopardy. I am going to see to it that Krista Harris case makes it on National Television if its the last thing I do. I believe everything Elsebeth has said about Krista being forced into a non-consensual sexual relationship by Kevin Baxter.

And lastly, I just found out that in June of 2004 Krista filed a lawsuit in federal court suing Kevin Baxter for forcing her into a sexual relationship. Only a real victim, who was victimized would file a lawsuit against their alleged rapist. I'll provide additional information later.

As a prosecutor of a county you really should not be giving out UNLAWFUL favors to your old and seasoned attorney friends, especially when the unlawful favors border on CRIMINAL that other people can and have gone to jail for.
You and some of these Erie County judges also should not be allowed to use your power to unlawfully INTIMIDATE these YOUNG attorneys into FIXING cases for you.
You and some of these Erie County judges also should not be allowed to unlawfully CONSPIRE with Cuyahoga County judges to FIX CASES in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County that pertain to matters in Erie County.
These are just a FEW of the NUMEROUS clearly unfair, biased and unlawful things that go on in Erie County on a regular basis that bring down the spirit of the community and project to those who consider making their personal homes here a VERY undesirable choice.

According to Ejay, he states that Kevin has/had an unlawful interest in a public contract violating Ohio Revised Code Section 2921.42(B)(2). Ejay states that the documents obtained from the Secretary of State say that Kevin owned 30% of the Island Rocket. So, if he received government loans is this illegal and is Ejay right? Can anyone check this out?

O.R.C. 2921.42 Having an unlawful interest in a public contract.
(A)No public official shall knowingly do any of the following:
(B)In the absence of bribery or a purpose to defraud, a public offical, member of a public official's family, or any of a public official's BUSINESS ASSOCIATES shall not be considered as having an interest in a public contract or the investment of public funds, if all of the follwing apply:
(2)The shares owned or controlled by that person do not exceed FIVE PER CENT of the oustanding shares of the corporation,and the amount due that person as creditor does not exceed five per cent of the total indebtedness of the corporation or other orgainiazation.

You say Baxter owned 30%. Who were his BUSINESS ASSOCIATES that owned the rest?

To RE Thought,
I have no doubt that the FBI knows alot about alot of people, but in the true sense of things doubt even they have enough man power to watch every single thing every single one of us do.

I for one don't want to risk it and think we should collectivley start writing letters to the same place in requards to this mess.

The kids I told you about that were railroaded out of their fathers estate for 10 years and giving said drug addict full reign to dispose of everything but the house has written a letter to the Attorney Generals Office.

It is pretty clear that that office isn't in the GOB network as it wasn't used for free in the Neusee ( sp?) report.

I'm sure they too would know the proper body of FBI to also turn this new evidence into with possible linking to any Cuyahoga or Lorain County investigations.

Watch out Kevin! The only way out now is to set Several offices on fire to destroy evidence. And then how do you know for sure none of your GOB's don't have some private stash at home to protect or use at their own timing against you to save or better their own A&&es?

Other things I'm noticing here on a repeated scale.....

#1 This office and Associates have a problem putting child molesters away!

#2 This office and Associates have their own way of the law in reguard to higher players in the drug world.

#3 This office and Associates only give low drug offenders a slap on the wrist.

#4 This office and Associates Do not provide a speedy court hearing on anything, but instead have the defendants return to court over and over again, then most final court dates are schedualed after the defendent has run out of money for counsel.

Or is it just me?

Anonymous

The Attorney General's office will tell them they have to go through the County Prosecutor and we all know where that will go. (but then this was told to me back when Marc Dann was still there)

As for #4 that is part of the dirty FIX the Erie County Court, the lawyers and I'm sure Baxter plan out. The Court will keep dragging it on and on until the people run out of money or get tired of it and call it quits. The Court will THEN schedule a final hearing with FULL KNOWLEDGE that there will be no LAWYER PRESENT, which means the Court can say and do any unlawful thing they want and get away with it. Do the people you know have a transcript of the final hearing in which Tone would not allow them to show their evidence? If not, they should get a copy of it. Chances are its been ALTERED in some way. The Erie County Probate Court is known for their illegal bull...

Hearings? What hearings? Ohio Law states that ALL PARTIES must be present at any hearings. My brother and I never got to attend ANY. We were told to stay in the waiting room while the attorneys had their sneaky behind closed door hearings with the judge. Other hearings THEY MADE SURE WE WEREN'T EVEN NOTIFIED OF. These unethical dirt bags are going down. I reported everyone of them to the State Bar. Who in the HELL do these judges in this county think they are anyway? Who in the HELL does Baxter think he is? It shouldn't have been MY problem that my mother's Erie County attorney drafted up a new POA when my mother was totally incompetent so some crook Lorain County attorney could hide it in Lorain County. They also drafted up a FRAUD WILL and it's signed by TWO ERIE COUNTY JUDGES. And THAT'S why they didn't want my case in Erie County. They also allowed the Lorain County attorney to illegally transfer my mother's property (that was part of a Trust) by falsely stating on a Quit-Claims deed that the FORGED POA was on file in the Erie County Recorder's office and you can bet BAXTER is the one that allowed it. And all of that doesn't even include the fraud pulled off by a local insurance agent and a local bank who changed a Trust by falsifying records and forgery. Evil scum bags. People don't have to sit back and take this SH$$!

You say that attorneys are fixing all the cases that involve Citizens Bank. I never knew that. The only one I know about is KEY BANK.

Anonymous

Yes, Citizens Bank is involved in a lot of schemes too. I've been reviewing a lot of documentation from Elsebeth, and boy, she was right on the money. So far, it looks like Krista Harris was initially railroaded because Citizens Bank illegally froze her account. All the records show that the bank did not have a court order, however, they did a favor for Detective Mark Volz of SPD. Afterwards, Krista got wind of what had occurred and hired attorney Oglesby to file a lawsuit against the bank. Therefor, SPD knew that if the bank were sued, they would have to counter-sue SPD because they followed the direction of officer Volz. That is when Krista was initially charged with 3 sham felony theft charges in Sandusky Municipal Court. Now, what is even more unbelievable is the fact Krista should have never even been indicted. Elsebeth has laid the Krista Harris case out perfectly. Hold on I need to print these documents.

ERIE COUNTY'S VERSION OF A FAMILY FUED.
An Erie County attorney drafts up a NEW POA and a DIFFERENT Will for his totally incompetent, seriously ill client (who has an irrevocable TRUST with four beneficiaries) The attorney names two of her children her financial POA's without the THIRD child's KNOWLEDGE.
The attorney then switches attorneys on the incompetent client so a crook attorney from Lorain County can hide the forged POA in the Lorain County Recorder office.
The crook attorney from Lorain County then transfers the Trust property of the incompetent client by falsely stating the forged POA HIDDEN in Lorain County is on file in the Erie County Recorder's office.
A local crook insurance agent (and his manager) and a manager from a local bank then HURRY and change all of the seiously ill, incompetent client's Trust contracts. (mostly by falsifying records and forgery) The contracts are changed for the benefit of the MORE THAN RICH 75 year-old stepfather so he in turn can make his stepdaughter (the one that forged the new POA & the different Will) the joint owner on all the criminally changed accounts.
THIS IS A FAMILY FUED?
NO IT ISN'T. WHAT THESE ATTORNEYS, INSURANCE COMPANY AND BANK DID WAS CRIMINAL.

To the person who made the comment about judge McGookey's attorney husband and brother-in-law fixing cases for Citizens Bank. For what its worth I was at the clerk of courts office a couple of months ago. Some attorney came in madder than all get out---something about it being way over 30 days and how Citizens Bank was ignoring his subpoena and avoiding his phone calls. I think he wanted a copy as to the date that the clerk of courts served the subpoena. I heard him say he was fed up with that bank's b.s. and he was going there in person. Wonder if the bank's b.s. had anything to do with McGookey being the judge.....what a rip-off.

To the comment below at 8:07 AM.

You do speak the truth here. Baumgartner was just another whistleblower that needed to be silenced by the corrupt network. Whistleblowers that try to bring out the truth are silenced all of the time by using various methods such as prison.

Google the name "Caryl Leventhal" who tried to bring out the corruption in the INS. All of these Al-Qaeda sleeper cells in the United States could have been uncovered before 9/11 but those corrupt few in the INS kept the sleeper cells under wraps by retaliating against Leventhal.

Another whistleblower was federal inspector Henry Marshall who was murdered but it was covered up as a suicide. http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.c...

http://www.copi.com/defrauding_a...

Watching the presidential debates, I have to wonder why either candidate did not propose a more transparent government and oversight and protection for whistleblowers. Billions of taxpayer dollars are stolen by corrupt individuals in the government. Those Billions could pay for much needed money for medical care. But some say that there is protection for whistleblowers. Unfortunately Judicial misconduct by corrupt judges and prosecutors will overlook any laws that protect whistleblowers.

There is a lot of information about the silencing of whistleblowers on the internet. People need to get informed.

Anonymous

Elsebeth,Krista Harris, and Ejay Baxter are all whistleblowers. Look at what happened to each and every one of them. They all were charged with senseless false charges. I will say this much, lately there has been alot of information surfacing regarding Krista Harris and her charges. It sure looks like she has a sure winning case to prove her innocence on those charges and to sue this county for MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. The main culprit behind Krista's problems is Kevin Baxter. I mean her story should be on prime time news. Everything that I have read regarding those illegally counts in her indictment surely proves that Baxter and company were out to get her and her lawyer. Well, I must say that I commend her as well as Ejay for doing the right thing and not giving up. They have come to far now to stop. It's only but a matte of time before the feds hit Erie county. There only 2 counties away Kevin.

True fact. The AG is only there to collect any monies they can drum up that you owe. They went back on us 20 years and are now saying it is our place to prove we file state taxes and have had us in court several times trying to sieze our assets! They tell us They don't have to even provide information as to how much they collected through payroll withdrawls and that they don't keep track of that. They also had on their own web site that a person should keep their documentation for 5 years until we went to court the first time...Hahaha that statement was removed within 3 days from the site. Every time we've gone to court we haven't even had a lawyer and have come away without a hitch...that's how croocked they are acting. I also had an applicant once that worked for AG office in Cleveland Legal office. Why was she leaving? THey were doing the same thing to our seniors and taking their properties!

When they did get their day they could only try to Have this druggy executor of the estate as not doing her job, and of course with no representation and no evedence being allowed they then got laughed out of court!

The government of Ohio is set up to be a lawyers paradise. The state officials such as the Auditor, Attorney General and others beg for your votes and then tell you to go see the county prosecutor or hire your own lawyer if you see wrongdoing or corruption or are a victim of corruption. You need a lawyer for everything. Isn't it great that the state officials tell you to jump in the lake after they beg for your votes? What a racket.

This is one reason that when people see corruption, the state refuses to get involved because it is all about politics. Whistleblowers who get involved will be silenced by threats or by punishment. If the whistleblower is persistent, then bogus charges involving the police and prosecutor will take place. This is why Baumgartner is in prison. Erie Voices was shut down with the help of the corrupted people in Cuyahoga County. NONE of Baumgartner's sworn affidavits were ever investigated, they were simply brushed off. The Cuyahoga County crooks even kept the hard drive from Baumgartner's computer and then claimed that they "lost" it. How convenient.

Ohio is a paradise to lawyers. Ohio is a haven to corruption and voter fraud. Corrupt lawyers love Ohio because the state will refuse to get involved in local or state corruption. Marc Dann was exposed because the news media exposed Dann and others. So the state had to do something about Dann while protecting the other Democrats, especially those in Cuyahoga County. Sometimes one must be "sacrificed" to protect the others and keep the citizens in the dark.

I remember getting a divorce in Erie County when Judge Work was there. The lawyers and the judges get together and make you stay in a closed room all by yourself. I asked for custody of my children but my lawyer laughed at me and said that men don't get custody.
I refused to sign the divorce papers because I did not agree with it and I wasn't there in person to see what the judges and attorneys were talking about.

My ex-wife ran up huge credit card debts and brought nothing into the marriage. I brought my thousands of dollars that I saved since high school and it was my money that made the down payment on the house. I countersued my wife for adultery. She cheated and even admitted to it. I never cheated at all. My lawyer told me that everybody cheats and told me that adultery is not grounds for divorce in Ohio. What a lie that was.

I refused to sign the divorce papers because my lawyer said that the judge makes the decision about what happens in a divorce and that I am required to sign. I still refused to sign but my lawyer told me that I can amend the divorce agreement if something changes. So I reluctantly signed because I lacked money to keep fighting it in court.

A month later, my ex refused to pick up my children after a weekend visitation with me. She said that she never wanted the children in the first place but her lawyer pressured her to take the children so that she would get the house and all of my assets. I was stuck with her credit card debts too. Long story here but I was still required to make child support payments to my ex even though my children now lived with me.

I went to where I had to make child support payments and was told that I must hire a lawyer and go to court to stop the support payments. So I went back to my lawyer and asked to have my divorce agreement "amended" like he said before. He laughed at me and said he never said such a thing to me. He wanted money up front to go back to court to stop my support payments and have full custody of my children.

I went to court on my own but was told that I needed a lawyer and that I could not be my own lawyer since I did not know the inner workings of the court. So, I hired another lawyer who told me that I have no chance of getting my house back for my children but that he could get my support payments stopped and I could be given full custody. I also asked for child support. In the end, my child support payments stopped, I had full custody of my children but I was unable to get child support payments because Judge Work would not allow it.

It is my belief that when one is in court, that the person should be present in all hearings between a judge and lawyers. It is the right thing to do. Hopefully, the divorce hearings in Erie County are more open and they do not isolate those getting a divorce in little rooms while deals are made between the judge and lawyers.

All Lorain county Criminal court apperances have behind closed doors meetings right before trial with all lawyers, the prosecutor, and the judge.
The 3 then come to an agreement back there that is I guess agreeable to the three of them. Then they all come out and the entire court room none at a time is then told by Lawyer or prosecutor what is going to happen and what the outcome will be. Then one by one each case goes into action and the recorder starts her/his thing. One at a time each is brought up, then I guess to make it a little legal they all 3 go threw the motions of the official hearing. the defendant signs his papers then goes to the next ccase. Not a One of these people were able to get thier cases heard not once, twice, wven the 3rd time to the hearing. Man Oh Man How much money do you think that Court system and Lawyers are making?!

Anonymous

First off OHIO LAW states that ALL PARTIES ARE REQUIRED TO BE NOTIFIED AND PRESENT AT ALL HEARINGS if they have an attorney or if they do not. CLOSED-DOOR HEARINGS WITHOUT ALL PARTIES BEING PRESENT ARE TOTALLY ILLEGAL.
SECOND, that is a FLAT-OUT LIE what the Court told you that you HAD TO HAVE A LAWYER. Anybody can act as their own attorney. I think it's called Pro Se. The reason they want you to have a lawyer is so they can pull their illegal FIXED deals off with the Judge behind CLOSED DOORS.

Anonymous

That Partition Action & the Sheriff's Sale of property (because of DEFECTS in the title caused by ERIE COUNTY approving an ILLEGAL TRANSFER) sure was a LOW-DOWN SCAM, wasn't it?
About as big a SCAM as that FIXED lawsuit filed in Cuyahoga County where a Cuyahoga County Judge held a 3-hour CLOSED DOORS HEARING with all those crook attorneys so they could figure out a way to DISMISS a case in CUYAHOGA COUNTY pertaining to FRAUD, FRAUD, AND MORE FRAUD in an ERIE COUNTY PROBATE ESTATE.
I don't like SCAMS, Mr. Baxter. They show a total lack of respect not to mention they are ILLEGAL.

Those kids got SCR@EWED over big time with that bull that they could not dispute the validity of the said Will because that would be to imply that the lawyer had been party to drawing up an illegal will because 9 chances out of 10 THE LAWYER WAS A PARTY TO IT!! (Was this the case that a Murray was involved in?)
This is almost identical to my case----and I even PROVED the fraud Will filed two years AFTER my mother's death was FORGED (FORENSIC DOCUMENT EXAMINER) and Probate would not accept it. In fact, Probate won't even schedule a Hearing on my Complaints.

Did you know that if a Judge even suspects any illegal or dishonest wrongdoing on the part of an attorney that would make the attorney unfit to practice law the Judge is supposed to report it? Obviously the Judges in Erie County and the rest of these Counties don't adhere to this probably cause judges are attorneys. I only know of one attorney in Erie County that got disbarred and I think he was a black attorney.

Anonymous

Could you give me the names of the number of attorneys from this area that have been suspended? Also, what was the name of the black attorney that was disbarred? I don't remember it. Thank you very much.

Anonymous

You must be MISTAKEN. I checked out the number of attorneys from Sandusky that have been suspended from the practice of law and I only found TWO.
Attorney Patrick Mason, a Toledo attorney who practiced in Toledo and Sandusky, was disbarred on June 12, 2008 for multiple violations of the Code of Professional Responsibility in his dealings with four different clients. In one case Mason accepted fees in advance from clients and then ABANDONED their cases with no prior notice. (VERY INTERESTING) Another case Mason never showed up at a pre-trial hearing and never informed his client about the hearing, either. (VERY INTERESTING) Among many other findings of professional misconduct, the Supreme Court held that Mason had violated the state attorney discipline rules that prohibit illegal conduct involving moral turpitude, conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation and intentionally damaging clients in the course of a professional relationship.
The only other attorney disbarred in Sandusky was BLACK attorney Geoffrey Lynn Oglesby. I also noticed that attorney K. RONALD BAILEY was appointed as Oglesby's monitor....(INTERESTING)
So WHO are the OTHER NUMBER OF SANDUSKY ATTORNEYS that you claim have been suspended from practice? Another question----was this attorney Patrick Mason BLACK?

Anonymous

TO POST AT 7:06 PM:
About this attorney PATRICK MASON who was disbarred on June 12, 2008----what LAW FIRM was he with in Sandusky? I never heard of him before. I also noticed that the Judgment permanently barring MASON from practicing law was signed by a MOYER, C.J. Does this stand for Chief Justice Moyer? (I noticed two other attorneys did not agree with the decision)
You say a number of Sandusky attorneys have been suspended from practicing law but I only found TWO also. I found it very interesting too that K. RONALD BAILEY seemed to be very instrumental in getting the BLACK Sandusky attorney GEOFFREY OGLESBY disbarred.....
I'm also curious to know if this attorney Patrick Mason was BLACK....any more insight into this?

Anonymous

Patrick S. Mason and Geoffrey Oglesby are black attorneys that practiced law in Sandusky Ohio. And yes, it was Chief Justice Moyer who signed the document. Many of attorneys receive suspensions. However, sometimes they are stayed or it is for a limited time period like less a year. So you really don't hear much about those cases. And of course we know that Elsebeth Baumgartner was disbarred. She did practice law in Sandusky for a brief period of time.

Anonymous

Now attorney K. Ron Bailey who is representing Chief Nuesse is the very reason why Shawn Caston received a new trial. Bailey fixed the case for Baxter as usual. Now, that poor man, Mark Norcross, was brutally injured from Caston smashing into him is still in the hospital trying to recover from severe head trauma. Bailey should have been suspended from the practice of law for that but he wasn't. Well, check it out maybe no one ever filed a grievance against him.

Gee, I'm really surprised that the NAACP never jumped on this one especially since I know four (4) WHITE attorneys that did a million times WORSE than what these attorneys did and Baxter, Judge McGookey and Binette sure are protecting THEM. One is a former Erie County judge, one a Lorain County attorney and two others from Cuyahoga County. Very interesting....I think I'm going to have to contact the NAACP and find out WHY they are not the least bit CONCERNED about this very obvious UNLAWFUL PREJUDICE toward their own race.......I'm also contacting MOYER and let's hope he returns my phone calls because I can be very persistent.

Could you tell me what law firm Patrick S. Mason worked for in Sandusky?

Looks like the ex-Sanduskian Chief Justice Moyer played a big part in ruining Erie County. If I send him an E-mail and tell him exactly what I think of him will I get sent to prison for 8 years with EB? How 'bout the racist Cuyahoga County Judge that sentenced EB---the one that told a young black murderer how to break his probation and a young black girl how to be a good pro@titute? Can I tell her what I think of her? Too bad they all don't DROP DEAD so we can hear how all their gob friends sang their praises at the funerals.

One article said that Patrick Mason was a Toledo attorney who practiced in both Toledo and Sandusky and another said he was a Sandusky attorney. So where was his office located in Sandusky? What was the name of his law firm in Toledo or did he work independently there, too? What did Chief Justice Moyer have to do with his disbarrment? Does Moyer now work for the State Bar, TOO? Did K. Ronald Bailey play any part in Mason's disbarrment like he did the other BLACK attorney from Sandusky? What about Baxter? Was he involved? (sure bet)
Has there EVER been any WHITE ATTORNEYS that have been disbarred in Sandusky?

You seem to know a lot about these people. Are you an attorney? If so have you ever heard of an attorney for an insurance company filing a protective order against a COMPLAINTANT in a Probate Estate requesting that the Judge allow them to NOT PRODUCE THE RECORDS that were requested? I mean gee, why don't they just ADMIT TO THE FRAUD instead of filing something as stupid as that? Not to mention, I thought it was ILLEGAL to withhold and conceal records..............

Anonymous

Yes, unfortunately I know more about these corrupt officials than I care to. Needless to say, it is very important that we all seek justice in a civilized and legal manner. Never allow your feelings to get the best of you. Now, it very common for an attorney to file for a protective order. Basically, that will allow them some time so that they do not have to produce the requested documentation. Well, at least until the judge rules for or against them. Furthermore, attorneys withhold and conceal records all the time. There really isn't to much that you can about it other than filing a motion to have them held in contempt of court. If you do that you will only further p*ss off the judge and the opposition. So be very careful of your actions. As you know, they are quick to retaliate once you are perceived you as a threat.

Anonymous

Well I already DID file a motion to hold them in comtempt of court. Buy some time so they don't have to produce the documentation? These crooks have been pulling this off forever........And why would it p*ss the judge off? One would think it would p*ss her off more that they keep dragging it on and on and on. And I can tell you something else---what was done in this case went way beyond FRAUD---it was flat-out CRIMINAL and attorneys were part of it. (not to mention a Judge)

The African-American attorney's name is Derek Farmer. He only represented Elsebeth for a brief period of time. I do believe that Elsebeth did have some reprentation from the law firm of Don Harris and Loretta Riddle. I'm sure that she would definitely be pleased to know that this blog is running at full speed about the corruption in Erie County.

For the record, Loretta Riddle did represent Elsebeth Baumgartner for a short period. She abruptly stopped working for Elsebeth (I WONDER WHY) and after repeated requests, she failed to return over $6,000.00 that she owes me for work not completed. Anybody know who to contact in this situation?

Thank you all...These kids deserved better then this from the system.

I KNEW THEM WHEN wrote on Sep 18, 2008 9:55 AM:

" The Judge in the case was Tygh M. Tone
Magistrate Patrick Quinn.

No the person died of cancer at hospice center. Stayed at home in Huron until placed in facillaty 2 days prior to death. Will was signed 2 weeks prior to death.

Care giver live in girl friend of 1 year, was convicted of and on probation for taking pain medications from people in her care.

Will left Gallaway as the trustee of trust. And this care giver as executor of estate will full reign and control of the deceased home and all personal properity for 10 years and allowed care giver to dispose of any and all of personal property. IE motercycles, cars, boats, antiques, famly herlooms, ect ect.

I have allways felt so bad for these kids! they were done wrong by this woman before by keeping them away from their loved one then finished off anything they had of "family". "

the kids hired Murrey office for representation.
Murray wouldn't let them go after galloway and fact of wrong will. Murray did take quite a bit of money and even took phone tapes the son had proving that the womantold people of her plan to get him out of his home.
The tapes dissappeared...the Murray never did much and then they were given to another lady atty in office and had to start over, Since both kids are out of town...1 out of state. I'm sure Erie co. thought it would all just go away. Weel they perseviered and had to pay another good chunk of change to the law firm. New lady lawyer gets GF inot office to give deposition. Kids had to pay big bucks for that. The kids then were told again that We're going after her falure to handle estate as will states. They get court date. Judge rulled no evidence would be permissable. Said druggie woman had the right to do what she wanted and they'd split what was left of house only after a 10 year period. as per will. I must tell you here he had more in assets then in his home. The judge then told the kids their only recourse was to go to a mediator and...guess what pay again!
I guess they got their wish. THe son lost his good paying job because of all the time off and is to this day unemployed. The stress on the single young mom has caused her into major depression....THis is just not right!
Both of these young adults grew up in that house. They are now both homeless practically depending on others for help. And this woman walks.....
And GAlloway? What are you getting out of this? A cut? Do you continue to get paid to be in charge of the trust?
And what exactly was the reason again that the dad decided to change lawyers after using the same one for years? per Galloway and drug gf. he gave the man a family airloom car then turned around and got pi**ed off at that lawyer within a couple of months?

Uggggg Here I go again... wonder if I can sue for duress?

Matt,
Keep up the good work in bringing out the truth. A lot of us are counting on you as we as citizens do not have the clout such as a newspaper to expose corruption. Many of us tried to expose the truth and bring transparency back into government and the court system. But we have been stonewalled for years because nobody wants to help. It appears that almost all of the crooks are Democrats. And Democrats protect Democrats. It would be nice to start up a "grass roots" organization for citizens demanding change to the status quo.

A newspaper was responsible for exposing Nixon and his GOBs. Matt, like Woodward and Bernstein, is working to expose corruption in our area. The Plain Dealer is reporting all that is going on with the continuing FBI raids in Cuyahoga County, the PD is NOT "sweeping it under the rug" like they did in the past. It is informing people what is REALLY going on in Cleveland and the surrounding areas. The Plain Dealer and its affiliated online websites is posting news that should have been reported years ago.

It's about time that newspapers begin to keep the citizens informed about the TRUTH. In the past, politicians and GOBs used the newspapers to spread lies, rumors, misinformation and other BS to keep the people in the dark. They (GOBs) used the newspaper and news media to discredit people and whistleblowers who dared to stand up against the crooks. Looks to me like the newspapers are getting their act together and will no longer print the propaganda of the GOBs.
Recall Chris Redfern when he admonished Matt a few months ago for "being cute" because Matt will not allow the politicians and GOBs to control what gets printed or not reported or printed. Where has Chris Redfern been lately? He sure has been quiet since the FBI raided Cleveland. The GOBs object to anything that Matt prints now because the GOBS want to keep secrets. Not reporting what is really happening will only keep the citizens uninformed. The GOBs want everything to be a secret and make people believe that everything is just fine and dandy. Well, those days are coming to an end.

Watergate was exposed because two reporters from the Washington Post went on to report the TRUTH and to inform the people. Nixon wanted to keep things under wraps but in the end, the TRUTH prevailed.

Matt, once again, KUDOS to you and keep up the good work. If the GOBs threaten you, let us the citizens know. When you were not allowed to attend that "closed door meeting," you told us about it and kept us informed. You could have just as easily said nothing and the citizens would not have known a thing. That is what the GOBs wanted because they only work in the veil of secrecy and behind closed doors or in the dark.

Margaret Cannon, is from Cuyahoga County? That figures and explains a lot of things. Did you know that just the other day, there was another FBI raid in Cuyahoga County that involved 100 agents? The corruption of Cuyahoga County has long tentacles that control what happens in Erie and Ottawa Counties.

Looking back, Elsebeth made a lot of sense now. The GOBs through newspapers, including the Sandusky Register, Port Clinton News-Herald and even the Plain Dealer spread a lot of lies about Elsebeth. The GOBs used the newspapers to spread a lot of lies and misinformation about Elsebeth and others. The reason was to poison the minds of citizens and to control the peoples opinions about whistleblowers who attempt to expose corruption.

I see that the Plain Dealer will no longer cater to the GOBs to spread lies and propaganda. People in Cuyahoga County are becoming informed and corruption is being exposed for a change. And now Matt, through the Sandusky Register, is exposing corruption. But the Port Clinton News-Herald still prefers to cater to the GOBs from what I have seen and read. I have heard that many people in Port Clinton dropped the News-Herald and are now subscribing to the Sandusky Register.

I am looking for the FBI to raid the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office soon. All those involved in the corruption are Democrats and Democrats control what happens in Cuyahoga. I had thought about voting for Obama but will not because Obama will call off the FBI investigations. I will vote for McCain instead. I see where one lawyer in Cuyahoga was a state senator, ran for congress but was convicted of extorting money from businesses. He was not disbarred like he should have been. Instead he recently ran for Tubbs Jones vacated seat. Wow, only in Cuyahoga County. And now Cuyahoga County GOBs have their hands in the Nuesse hearings.

And the GOBs of Erie County and Sandusky? They cannot use the Sandusky Register as their propaganda machine. So they all banned together here on the news blobs to attack Matt, the Sandusky Register and keep spreading lies to anyone stupid enough to believe them.

Matt, thank you for what you are doing. It's the right thing to do.

Will was signed two weeks prior to his death-----now what Judge with any common sense would not question that obvious criminal act?
Will left Galloway the trustee of trust----now who in the he*l would be stupid enough to believe that criminal act?
Murray would not let them go after Galloway? (the little boys protecting their attorney brothers)
The kids had to go and ask and pay for a copy of their own father's Will? Are you saying they were never NOTIFIED BY CERTIFIED MAIL that a Will had been filed? (Illegal)
The Judge ruled that no evidence was permissable? I would have to say what the Judge ruled was unfair, dishonest, biased and ILLEGAL.
Judge Ty Tone was the Judge that ruled on this? That's odd----I thought McGookey only used Cuyahoga County judges and Binette to FIX cases pertaining to fraud and criminal acts perpetrated by ATTORNEYS in Probate.

Maybe the Club didn't think they need to go that far away to get over on this one? After all who in their right mond would accuse any atty of wrong doing? Who has enough money to stand up to them? The thing that urked them the most is this woman whom was obviously convicted of taking her patients drugs and on probation for it at the time she hooked their father. A man that just didn't want to die alone?
This woman hid things from appr.
they listed in the trust that the estate had 11,400.00 in household goods. It also failed to list a new Harley Davidson the father had ordered and paid for 2 years before died. or the other motor cycles that he did own.
This woman then commenced to Sell every thing in this mans home giving the kids just a few momentos of their father and their entire family history that was in that house for more then one generation. The Judge said it was ok she did what she wanted with it all because it was in the will.

If this wasn't Rape then I don't know what it was!

Who in their right mind would accuse an attorney of wrongdoing? I know somebody that did. The best thing about it is the person has all the proof because it's a matter of public record (filed by the attorneys themselves who never thought their filings were going to be found) The worst thing about it is---the Erie County Probate Court. Figure it out. The case you are talking about is by far not the only one....
If you need somebody to go to Court as a witness to watch the play in action I know of several people that would be more than willing......

When Murray turned the case over to another attorney in his firm was this done with the consent of his clients? Did they sign papers giving their consent? Who was the attorney the father had for years before changing attorneys? You say the father lived in Huron. Was his attorney from Huron, too? I didn't know that an attorney could be the trustee of a trust. Very interesting. If a differant will was drafted up who was the attorney? Who were the witnesses to the new will? Are they certain the will was signed by the father? The attorney (trustee of the trust) sure did line his pockets, didn't he? Thank you.

It appears like these cases in Probate never would have been had it not been for the criminal acts of LAWYERS to begin with. Sounds like the VICTIMS of these lawyers then get SCRE*ED over twice by their own good 'ole boy lawyers who only take their case to protect their lawyer buddies. Sounds like the Erie County Probate Court is fully involved in these illegal FIXES and if the Probate Court is involved so is your prosecutor, KEVIN BAXTER.

Let's say your an indivudual who was involved in an automobile accident, by no means your fault, that's the fact. You contact a lawyer and speak with him, tell him what you're looking for in a settlement. Not millions, even several thousands, just what you think is fair. A few months go by, and you find out that another lawyer is handling your case. He's with a totally differnt law firm. It's another 3-4 mos. before you even meet with this lawyer. In the meantime, bills need paid, your phone is ringing off the hook with an Ins. Co. that just wants to settle. What's that all about?

It's illegal for an attorney to WITHDRAW from a case with forseeable prejudice to his client/clients without DUE NOTICE and following all applicable laws, such as turning over ALL FILES in the case to the client/clients.
It's also illegal for an attorney to turn a case over to another attorney IN THE SAME LAW FIRM without the WRITTEN CONSENT of all clients.
I don't know how in the hel* your attorney ever got away with giving your case to a totally different law firm but if this was done in ERIE COUNTY nothing surprises me. In this county attorneys do anything they want---out of town attorneys even get away with filing Oral Motions and fraud preliminary judicial reports on behalf of people they DON'T EVEN REPRESENT and the Court KNOWS it!
Should we give credit to Kevin Baxter?

Pretty pathetic when a Lorain County law firm, a billion dollar insurance company and a bank get more out of the criminally changed TRUST of an elderly incompetent woman than the family members that the TRUST was set up for to begin with who got absolutely NOTHING. Does this go on in ALL COUNTIES or is this only the standard procedure in THIS County?

Thank you so much for that information. My Mother won't attend another meeting with this lawyer un-attended, as I will see to that personally, as well, I will let him know that we're now aware of the illegalities of such actions, and yes, that is right here in good ole Sandusky-Erie County.

What a joke. They won't allow a town hall meeting. I'm going down to Baxter's myself and I hope he doesn't hide.

LMAOROTF if he won't answer the phone do you really think he's going to face anybody? hahahaa

Dear all,

I would like to inform, that I have taken the liberty today to reach out to CNN News and other news media agencies sending all of your comments and concerns regarding the corruption we are faced with in Erie County.

I've also expressed from your view points and of course mine, the continued abuse of power involving the prosecutorial misconduct of Kevin Baxter.

You see, I don't find this blog, to be entertaining, I find this blog too be heart wrenching and a City that's in despair. It reminds me of what we are presently faced with on Wall-Street, losing, losing , losing.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of losing. I feel as tax payers we owe it to ourselves to know that we matter. As we are faced with overwhelming challenges of the struggle's of this disastrous economy I feel none of us should be entrenched in a system of corruption that imprisons innocent people as we battle in political war.

I dont know about you but I want Kevin Baxter to feel our wrath and understand that we divide to conquer. We can not continue to sit back and spend our time fighting each other, and stopping at this point- THE SANDUSKY REGISTER. It's obvious we share the same common interest and thats seeking justice against a man who has destroyed famlies & hurt children . This is a man who isn't fit to practice law,let alone have people's lives in his hands. I say enough is enough.

I openly pour out my heart to you and challenge you to get on board and send your complaints behind mine and express the truth of what we seek, the removal of Kevin Baxter and much deserving investigation in Sandusky, Ohio.

We all have a story , please let it be known. My prayers, go out to all of Kevin's victims and I pray that he will face each and everyone of his adversaries.

Please send your comments to this link
http://www.cnn.com/feedback/form...

There are a total of 638 comments regarding the corruption in Erie County and Kevin Baxter named as the culprit please trust that this warrants attention.

I've also sent newspaper articles and various cases naming each of his victims who have suffered under his abuse. I believe that if we continue to nationally expose Sandusky, Ohio and put the pressure on the Ohio Supreme Court at a National Level they will have no other choice but to hand him over.

It's unfortunate that each year we continue to get rejected with our pleas of wanting him removed from our State officials, and to receive that famous letter stamped -Kevin has done nothing wrong - go away. This makes you fight more and more each and everyday.

It's amazing to know that there are so many of us waiting in line to bring forth justice against Kevin Baxter.

I've posted my name because I'm not afraid and Kevin knows what he's done to my children and I want him to be brought to justice.

If you like for me to attend your town hall meeting please let know when and where I'll be happy to make an appearnce. I'm sure Kevin is waiting too meet me anyway, right Kevin ?

Best of Luck !

OK GUYS- My last comment was ERASED. Listen I submitted explicit details of the night of events regarding the shooting that accused McDonald and Turner of Murder –

So hear it comes again, JUST WATCH HOW QUICKLY THIS WILL BE ERASED, right before your eyes.... I think I'm on to something good.

- The night of the shooting Baxter accused three guys because they were all seen at the club together. While at the club caston is involved in an argument with jerome caffey over who can bench press the most weights.

- That very night, mcdonald drove both turner and caston to the club picking them up in his white car. Please note that caston and turner both were picked up at turner's home and mcdonald was driving his own vehicle, not riding with caston as Baxter has indicated. .

- After the club closes, caston was still very angry and intoxicated as he was ranting and raving about seeking revenge against caffey. You should all know that this was an argument with Caston and Caffey only. McDonald, once again, gave turner and caston a ride home from the club and before they reached their final destinations they stopped at the shell gas station, it was there that McDonald purchased party mixers and condoms for his evening with Ms. Harris. Ms. Harris had purchased a hotel in her name at the motel on Cleveland avenue and it was a mutual agreement that they would meet immediately after mcdonalds night at the club.

- It has been noted that while at the gas station, caston was observed by several people as to have been extremely intoxicated and angry, he was so out of control that he asked terry mcdonald if he had a gun to go kill caffey. Mcdonald had planned an intimate evening with ms harris and he was not entertaining caston with his ill thoughts. Besides, caston never hung out with mcdonald this was turner's friend. Turner stated that know one paid caston any attention because he always behaved in that fashion especially when he was drunk. Turner also admitted that caston would always want his gun and he would often give it to him as caston was only talking when he was drunk.

- As they left the shell gas station it was then that mcdonald dropped caston and turner off at turners and mcdonald proceeded to move on with his night meeting ms harris at the motel on Cleveland Aven._THIS WAS WHERE MCDONALD WAS AND IS INNOCENT FOLKS…… Meanwhile, turner at his home with caston, turned over a gun to caston and caston left the home of turner and walked home which was right down the street from his home with the gun, retrieving the keys from his girlfriends driving her red caviler.

- Caston's destination alone and mission to seek revenge was to the home of caffey. It was then during a stop-by that he turned out his head lights and opened fired 32 rounds of ammunition into the home of caffey. You should also know that during this gun sfire shoot out, Mr. caffey was shooting back as officers confiscated a smoking gun in the dryer. This is critical also, emergency room dr's revealed that the bullet wound that struck ms. Johnson came from the direction of the house and not the street. Baxter has all this information but do you really think he will tell the Johnson family this information or the newspaper . HECK KNOW

- Now get this, Turner admits that he heard the shots ring out, as caffeys home was in within range that he could you can hear the gun fire. Turner immediately knew that caston followed through with what he was planning to do, so he ran down to castons home, no car, and no caston. Turner admits that he returned back to his home pacing the floor worried sick as to what caston had done. All he could think about is how stupid he was to have given him his gun.

- Turner admits that later, caston is home and turner runs over to castons, only to find caston with his brother terry it was then that caston informed he shot up the home of jerome caffey and was instructed to rinse his hands in bleach by terry and that both got rid of the murder weapon throwing it lake erie. It was also reported that caston stated the police would never recover the gun because they threw the gun in lake erie. We all know that Lake Erie has no bottom.

_ So folks perfect plan for Baxter to set mcdonald up. Boy was he on to something; he wanted him for drugs that never happened, by gosh was he going to pin this murder on him. He's a mess that Baxter. SO READ BETWEEN THE LINES- mcdonald was framed he was no where near crime he was simply in a motel with ms harris having himself one heck of a good time. I know he wishes he would have been home with his wife and kids you think?

YOU FIGURE THE REST,,,,, please tell me if i should provide more information.

- that fact that the police did not know what kind of car was used in the shooting until baxter interviewed caston and caston said that there were 3000 cavilers , baxter stated himself caston was a dummy because it was caston who gave up the goods about the car that was used. Baxter never asked what car was used, caston did great work to help the investigation. Oh I forget caston was simply too drunk and couldn’t remember yeah right ! Baxter then order's the police to search the red caviler and guess what people they found three shell casings, but didn't bother to dust for finger prints placing, mcdonald and turner in the car. Caston also mentioned that he was so drunk he couldn't remember until baxter got in his ear about mcdonald and how badly he wanted him. So every time you erase my post look for me to keep telling this story.

I'm hear to haunt you - happy Halloween.

i'm curious as to why we are not privey to hearing about the shooting with mcdonald. is it becuz baxter set him up or what ?

Yesterday's front page edition of the SR has an article GRANDMA ALLEGEDLY ABUSED 4 YEAR OLD GIRL. It then goes on to state that this happened in the year 2000!
Kevin Baxter is quoted as saying that it is not unusual for cases of alleged sexual abuse involving children to take a long time to come to trial.
Oh, come on already, Mr. Baxter! Nine years?????? I also noticed that there is yet another infamous Erie County CONFLICT OF INTEREST in the case.....
WHAT IN THE HE** IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTY, ANYWAY?

Anonymous

In the legal section of the SR (October 23, 2008) there are six Erie County insurance agents that failed to comply with the continuing education requirements of section 3905.481 of the Revised Code for the 2005/2006 compliance period---therefore, their insurance licenses were revoked.
It further states that each of the six individuals may file an appeal as set forth in O.R.C.119.12 in the court of the common pleas in the COUNTY in which his/her business is located OR the common pleas in the COUNTY that the agent RESIDES IN.
The above has nothing to do with my case but OHIO LAW and the jurisdiction of COUNTIES sure do.
How does a case of FRAUD in an Erie County Probate Estate against an insurance company and OTHERS get FIXED by a Cuyahoga County judge in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County when the deceased WAS A LIFE-LONG RESIDENT OF ERIE COUNTY and the insurance agent does BUSINESS and RESIDES in ERIE COUNTY?

Dear Jackie,

Unlike you I am afraid. Not for myself but for the Kids I mentioned that still have a court hearing coming up.

I for one will for sure be writing a letter to the link you left for us and I sure hope that it will do some good!

I thank you very much for your help as I have been grabbing for straws and writing letters and hahah have heard nothing back thus far. We have even appealed to Matt to be in the said hearing and haven't heard anything back!

Please some one stop the madness.

Kevin Baxter isn't the only bad link here and I think They should all go down!!!!!!!!!!!! Major audits of casses and accounting need to be done for all county officials and the lawyers and their buddies that enter twine here!

Does anyone know if there is going to be a town hall meeting? I would love to attend, and show my support.

Who is organizing it?
Please provide a list of places that you are considering using for the event.

Town hall meeting for what? Why don't you just report the whole friggin bunch and your cases to the State Bar and if they won't do anything report them to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Corrupt judges and prosecutors who hold the upper hand CANNOT protect their "friends" no matter what..........if they could then there would be no point of even having a legal system.....

LET'S HAVE IT AT HIGH NOON IN THE HALL OUTSIDE BAXTER'S OFFICE. LET'S ESTABLISH A DATE AND HAVE IT COVERED BY THE SR.

Anonymous

A town hall meeting would allow the citizens in the community the opportunity to voice their concerns and complaints to the public officials in a face off.

In the latter part of 2007 the citizens of cuyahoga requested a town hall meeting and it was permitted and also televised by 19 Action News.

I believe that we all have enough legitimate concerns with the corrupt judicial system in Erie County to request the issues regarding judicial fairness be addressed by our local public servants.

I believe that this event could draw a group large enough to book the Nia Convention Center at Kalahari.

However, there are several other places that could possibly accommadate a large crowd, e.i., Sandusky High School Auditorium, The Conference Room at the County Building, and the VFW club.

If anyone has any suggestions please post them so that I can receive some feedback. I am sure that the Sandusky Register would love to attend and provide full coverage of this event.

People.... get a life! If Baxter is so corrupt, why does no one ever run against him? Don't say that he and his so called 'GOB's' run this town. There are more honest people in this town than not. To many of the slander-happy bloggers, he or someone in his office probably handled a case against you and that is why you are so bitter. The others probably don't have a single thought for him/herself and allows themselves to be lead by the nose. How sad.

There an article by Mike Fitzpatrick - that states OFFBEAT: Conspiracy ? I don't think so. He's harming mcdonald, ejay baxter, krista harris, to name a few, He actually states that Kevin BAxter is a great prosecutor and justifying kevins misconduct. .... Please check this story out !

Are you from Cuyahoga County? Do you know for a fact that this practice is going on or are you just following the nay sayers in this town? I am from Cuyahoga County. I do know attorneys in both parties and I doubt what you are stating is going on. Again, what a sad state this town and some of the people who reside here. It doesn't matter what party you belong, or no party at all, it sounds more like some of the bloggers are watching to much television. Like I said before, People.....get a life

Why hasn't Kevin filed a lawsuit against Krista Harris? I mean, hey, if this lady says that she was forced into a non-consensual sexual relationship well you would think that this white guy would at least sue her in court. Right.

Something isn't right with this case. I think that Baxter had some type of relationship with Harris. What do you all think?

Anonymous

I am very much interested in hearing Krista's version of events. From what I can recall she states that Kevin Baxter set her up on sham theft charges. I would like to know if that is true, and can it be proven from court documents? What is all of the talk about Double Jeopardy? How many times was she tried in a court of law? Why was she offered Diversion by the Prosecutor, then to receive a 5 year prison sentence because she took the case to trial.

Now I know that doesn't make any sense to me. Can someone explain why the state would make such a sweeeet offer to the defendant to only turn around and the state that they want her to go to prison for 10 years. Something is not right with her case. How many counts was she indicted on? How many counts was she convicted on? What type of prison sentence was imposed?

Inquiring minds would like to know

Dear CSI,

Are you suggesting now that she was afraid Baxter threatened to harm her physically?
I think you made her case not his!

thus removing the potential for physical retaliation on her.

YOU sure can tell by reading the comments each and every time one of the Club posts a comment. It so general a statement and only to attack posters. Many of us may not have the resources to change any thing but we're sure as H*** not to stupid to see what is going on. You get a life and You go back out and play with your buddies while ya can. Quit monitoring these blogs if they bother you so much! Are you worried to much fact will come out or are you watchinig so you can help squelch the poster that has the balls to post it?

RE: Town meeting,

After the election is a bit to late don't ya think?

Why isn't it in the town hall or public town place? Why should any of us pay more money to see if any of them will even show up?

Are we to intice them there with the thought of a fine meal at one of the local tourist traps?

If there is one it sure shouldn't be about comfort or coffee getting served!!!!!

Good luck to you...you'll Never see this come to pass anymore then any of us can get results in private forum!

Why doesn't any of the lawyers around run against Baxter? Because I'd say at the rate They are digging into ppls pockets in all this mess, it'd be a cut in pay for them! Plus more accountability could some day be forced upon them!
