FROM: "Rodger Dowdell Jr" <email@example.com>
On Saturday,, Marie and Canetha as well as Hagan got to see Terry through the glass and talk on the phone with him. They report his spirits are strong but he is looking physically a bit weaker.
Ive been watching the videos. That's not how his laywer argued the case at all. They denied filing anything. They said it was the clerk who accidentally filed Terry's petitions, all Terry wanted her to do was notarize them. Also, they don't call it a true bill, they called it a petition to air their greivances and that all Terry and his Peoples Grand Jury wanted was for the sheriff to investigate their petition. The story the defense put on in court is nothing like the story we've heard for the last two years. That's why I'm concerned. I also wish I could hear why Terry testified and especially why he testified the peoples grand jury has no authority. Most of all I'd like to hear Roger Dowell's opinion on this whole mess. He was supposed to be Terry's witness but then his lawyer released him. Did the lawyer not like what Roger was going to say? Why didn't Terry demand he be allowed to testify? Do you have links to the videos. I can list them tomorrow here if people want to watch them but there's a lot of them and they go on for hours and hours so be prepared.
I agree with Rattler, this is not what we expected as a defense. Here is a link to the video of the cross examination of Terry. This is probably the most revealing of all the videos.
After watching this, I think the biggest error made by the defense was to allow Terry to testify. The prosecutor was able to twist his words against him.
I understand the jist of the problems of Mr. Tussell. He charged the court system with mishandling court cases. He was called upon in court. He responded I AM HERE. The Judge stated that Terry Tussell is not in court and issued a warrant of arrest. This is a criminal action by the "judge" and the courtroom people. They need to spend time in prison for these illegal actions.
Hopefully by the time this is all completed and finished this judge and both prosecutors will be spending a lot of years in prison. Just pray that Terry Trussell makes it that far, And his wife also.
The only other option I see available right now is the law of the Constitution # 38.
I agree Michael, This sounds to me like his attorney was trying to disclaim or Disavow any references to Common Law. I think she was taking the approach of saying that those actions never actually happened. You notice there never was any mention of Common Law or a Citizens Grand Jury. The case and complaints against the school board (which started all this) was never mentioned. The only thing said was that Terry Trussell made ILlegal court "attacks" on Prosecutor Seigmeister. Those true bills Terry tried to place in court records were legitimate courts procedures. There are very severe penalties for anyone who refuses to file those complaints once they have been submitted to the clerk. Seigmeister and the original judge ordered the clerk NOT to enter them into court records. That is a violation of both Common Law and Statutory Law. But by claiming they were never entered into court records they can simply let those two charges die.
How they managed to convince a jury to convict Terry on something they claim was never filed is beyond me.
The whole damn thing stinks.
I agree Rooster. None of us thought in a million years thought the good people of Dixie County would convict Terry. But as for them not mentioning common law or citizen's grand jury, both sides mentioned common law grand juries and the peoples grand jury. Terry's lawyer said it was just a symbolic name for a group of people freely assembling and they knew they had no power. The prosecutor said they thought they did have power but that power was illegal, simulated legal procedure. So, you can see why this is so confusing and we need Roger Dowell to explain what he thinks and why they went with that crazy defense. Im hoping Terry can easily get an appeal based on his incompetant counsel. He should have stuck with defending himself. Then he could have straightened them all out.
If anybody knows somebody who was there for the whole trial and can talk to them, that would be good. My friend was only able to pop in and out as he went about his deliveries and his friend was kicked out of court Wednesday. Still, he's hoping to talk to him, or someone, who was there for the whole trial. Maybe they'll know more.
The main charge was something called "simulation of process". It means you can't file fake legal documents in a real court of law. Everyone here can pretend that a common law grand jury is legal, but when Terry filed fake legal "true bills" made by a fake common law grand jury, that violated the law against "simulation of process". Terry was a fool to believe idiots like John Darash/Vidurek and Rodger Dowdell. He thought he was cock of the walk, but instead he's going to prison.
Wait what? Where do you have your proof about the CLGJ, Sam??? Everything we've read and learned says you're totally wrong, from Justice Scalia to CLGJs like Larry Klayman's and many others. Terry is innocent, he was railroaded. Can somebody get a message to Rodger to see what he suggests?
