Judicial Corruption and Dishonesty

John Eric Armstrong - Ellis County Texas Corruption Victim - Part 5

EXHIBIT A319 Ellis County Sheriff Joe Fitzgerald 200h

This is Sergeant Joe Fitzgerald of the Ellis County Sheriff's Office.  He is a corrupt law enforcement officer and the brother of Lauren Kersh, who would be in prison without his criminal activity.  Upon information and belief, Joe Fitzgerald concocted the criminal conspiracy to put John Eric Armstrong in solitary confinement in the Ellis County Jail for over a year without a trial anywhere in sight.  John Eric Armstrong has never been convicted or charged with a crime before -- not even now.  It's an incredible story - Part 5

This is John Eric Armstrong - Ellis County Texas Corruption Victim - Part 5 -- His story in his words:

The 14-page Letter -- October 2019

I mailed a letter to Lauren Kersh around the end of October 2019.  I am detailing this letter here because the Ellis County District Attorney later claimed the letter was new evidence of stalking.  The 14-page letter did not contain probable cause for stalking and both the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office and Stephanie Lauren Kersh admit this in court transcripts from 7/9/2020 (103654 CCL). 

The 14-page letter isn’t evidence of any crime and much of what is in this letter is also in the 14-page letter.  The 14-page letter is not really a letter but a collection of documents that detail my conversations with Ellis County Sheriff Chuck Edge and his deputies.  It also accuses the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office of various crimes.  The 14-page letter was sent all the way up the chain of command to Ellis County Sheriff Chuck Edge and his Chief Deputy, and no probable cause could be found for any crime.

This is proven in two separate Ellis County emails; one is from Shane Thompson to Sheriff Chuck Edge and the other is from Shane Thompson to the District Attorney (Alyssa Chavez).

In October of 2019 when I mailed the 14-page letter, I was still under the misunderstanding that I detailed earlier in this letter.  I believed that Lauren Kersh and her brother Joe Fitzgerald were good people who made a mistake.  My purpose for the 14-page letter was to get help.

My plan was for Joe Fitzgerald to receive the 14-page letter from his sister.  I thought that Joe Fitzgerald would be able to get help as he is a high-ranking Ellis County Sheriff’s deputy.  I believed at the time that the Sheriff was holding Lauren Kersh’s assault over her head so she and her brother would cooperate (coercion).  I never would have thought that Joe Fitzgerald was behind this as the Ellis County Sheriff’s deputies sexually harassed his sister in a bad way for four years.  I thought they needed help getting out of this.


Before mailing the 14-page letter to Lauren Kersh, I submitted the information to Crimestoppers, and I gave a copy to a local defense attorney (Jim Jenkins).  I knew that Joe Fitzgerald was the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer.  As the P.I.O., I figured information submitted to Crimestoppers would go to him.  I spoke with attorney Jim Jenkins earlier in the year (August) who told me he knew both Lauren Kersh and her brother, Joe Fitzgerald.  Mr. Jim Jenkins told me that he attended the same church as Joe Fitzgerald, and he told me that Lauren Kersh had come into his office a few years earlier to talk to him about filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office.  I gave Mr. Jim Jenkins a copy of the 14-page letter with hopes that he would give it to Joe Fitzgerald.  It wasn’t until January that I viewed the video evidence and learned that Joe Fitzgerald and his sister, Lauren Kersh, were behind this.


Update:  To help Understand the Legal Process

To understand the rest of this letter and what the courts have done (fraud), it is important to know what is required to have a legal criminal proceeding against a person.  Initially, three basic pieces of paperwork are required; they are an arrest, an official complaint, and an affidavit of probable cause.  Of these, an affidavit of probable cause is most important.  Having these three things does not make a case legitimate, but they must exist whether a case is legitimate or fraud. 

If a case is fraudulent, they still have to falsify these three things to make it look right.  To understand how important these three things are, there can be NO criminal proceeding without them.  These three things are the accusation against a person, and they are the only foundation of a criminal case (they are the criminal case).  These three things are crucial.  If a man robs a bank and the police forget to arrest him and file paperwork against him (complaint and affidavit of probable cause), that man did not rob a bank.  He made an enemy within law enforcement who set him up.  

The point is that these three things are not something that can be overlooked (not a simple paperwork error).  The ONLY paperwork that matters in a criminal case can’t be forgotten accidentally.  If these three things are missing from a case, that case is fraud, and it is fraud at the most basic level, the foundational level of paperwork.  Without these three things, there is no probable cause (legal reason) against a person.  If a person is arrested without these three things, that person Is arrested without probable cause, which is a violation of their right to due process.



The following is a Brief Description of the Required Paperwork:

An Arrest:

The suspect of a crime must be arrested.  Upon arrest, the suspect has his fingerprints taken, and the criminal charge is submitted to the State via CR43 (fingerprints) through a system called AFIS.  An arrest report is generated, which includes details about the suspect, the crime, and the location.  The suspect is later arraigned, and a bond is set.

 
An Official Complaint:

A legal document charging a person with a crime by a police officer.  It contains the name of the charge and a short statement about the crime detailing probable cause.

 
Affidavit of Probable Cause:

This is a detailed narrative of an alleged crime and is written by the arresting police officer.  This legal document establishes the arresting officer’s probable cause (legal reason) against a suspect for an alleged offense.  This is the most important document and its absence cannot be remedied.  

In my case, the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office has arrested me a total of three times without probable cause.  They did falsify some of the correct paperwork on the first charge from 2019 (they did a lousy job) where they arrested the victim of a violent crime (me).  The last two arrests were made without even falsifying the correct paperwork.  Even the worst criminals could have falsified the correct paperwork to make it look right, but this is Ellis County.


Ellis County (the Sheriff’s Office) has a very long history of criminal police officers.  Not just any criminal police officers, but incredibly stupid criminal police officers.  Many of these stupid Ellis County police officers have their own news stories detailing what they did, and I have mentioned them in the attached complaints to Ellis County Sheriff Brad Norman.

I have written this letter primarily to people with a background in the law (police officers and attorneys), however, this portion was written for people without a law background (the media) to make it easier for anyone to see how shockingly obvious fraud is and how shockingly stupid Ellis County is.

There is a TV show called “Criminal Masterminds” in which the stories of the most brilliant, genius-level and successful criminals are told in detail.  The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office will never be featured on this TV show.  They will be featured on “World’s Dumbest Criminals.”

This is why Ellis County would never take me to trial even if they could.  They have to answer for all of this (the fraud they committed).  They would be laughed out of the courtroom except that this isn’t funny.  They need to be laughed right into Federal prison for deprivation of rights where they belong.  For the rest of the letter, I will use the following to clearly mark where Ellis County has committed fraud and violated my right to due process at the most basic level, (the stupid level -- paperwork): no arrest + no official complaint + no affidavit of probable cause = no probable cause/no charge/no indictment/no bond conditions/no warrant/not legal (fraud).


End of Update



Overview of Fraud: The Courts -- Malicious Prosecution

The Ellis County District Attorney tried to indict me on the false arrest made by the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office to coerce me into taking their plea deal (admission of guilt) to justify withholding the evidence of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office’s false arrest and the assault.  When they failed to gain an indictment, they falsified an indictment they can’t actually use.  They used their false indictment to try to coerce me into taking their plea deal to justify withholding the evidence of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office false arrest and the assault.  When I refused to cooperate with their threats to take me to trial without probable cause (no official complaint or affidavit of probable cause), the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office made a false arrest (no probable cause) and are now holding me in jail indefinitely without probable cause (an official complaint or affidavit of probable cause).

First -- The Ellis County District Attorney tried to gain an indictment on the false arrest made by the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office.  They were trying to coerce me into taking their plea deal (admission of guilt) to justify withholding the evidence of a false arrest and a confession of an assault.  On October 3, 2019, the Ellis County District Attorney took false witness statements from the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office and Lauren Kersh to the Ellis County Grand Jury.  The Ellis County Grand Jury rejected the stalking charge, and the Ellis County District Attorney reclassified the charge as criminal trespassing (Misdemeanor B) ending litigation for stalking permanently.

The only way the Ellis County District Attorney could take this evidence back to the Ellis County Grand Jury (if the evidence wasn’t false) was if they gained new evidence of stalking.  To do this, the Ellis County District Attorney would have to dismiss the original charge altogether.  Then the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office would have to charge and arrest me on their new evidence of stalking.  Anything less is taking fruit from the poisonous tree (using evidence gained illegally.)

Second -- The Ellis County District Attorney mailed me a false indictment with a court date to trick me into thinking I had to stand trial for stalking.  When I showed up to their first court date and they knew they fooled me, they dismissed the charge altogether.  This meant there was no criminal charge against me but they tricked me into thinking I had to stand trial for stalking.  This is fraud; it is a violation of my right to due process and it is egregious.  This is downright criminal.

The Ellis County District Attorney took the same false statements (fabricated evidence) back to the Ellis County Grand Jury even though they weren’t allowed to.  Once the Ellis County District Attorney reclassified the charge as criminal trespassing, litigation for stalking was over permanently, even if their evidence had not been false.

The Ellis County District Attorney gained an indictment that doesn’t belong to anything (fraud).

Their indictment doesn’t belong to the original charge because the Ellis County District Attorney reclassified the original charge as criminal trespassing ending litigation for stalking permanently. Their indictment doesn’t belong to a second charge of stalking because the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office didn’t charge me a second time for stalking. The District Attorney mailed their false indictment to me with a court date (no arrest).  They left the original charge open until two days after I went to their arraignment making it appear that they refiled the charge as stalking.  I was told that I was still on the same bond from the original charge.  Two days after their arraignment they dismissed their charge altogether.  This means that there was no criminal charge against me but they tricked me into thinking that I had to stand trial for stalking.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office ruled in late October that I could have a copy of the evidence from my case once it had been submitted to the Ellis County Grand Jury. That already happened on October 3, 2019 when the Ellis County District Attorney reclassified the charge as a misdemeanor ending litigation for stalking permanently.  This means the Ellis County District Attorney had to give me a copy of the evidence.  That evidence is of a false arrest and a confession of an assault.  They indicted me to stop me from taking the evidence to law enforcement or the media.

Ermatinger Cindy robe 200h

Third -- Judge Cindy Ermatinger violated my right to due process on January 7, 2020 by arraigning me on a falsified indictment allowing the Ellis County District Attorney to take me through the pre-trial and trial process on an indictment belonging to nothing (thin air).  Judge Cindy Ermatinger arraigned me for nothing on January 7, 2020.  There was no arrest, complaint, or affidavit of probable cause.  They made it appear that they refiled the charge as an already felony-indicted charge of stalking telling me that I was still on the original bond.  Six months later, Judge Cindy Ermatinger called me to court to set bond conditions for their indictment belonging to nothing.

Judge Cindy Ermatinger lied in court (proven in court transcripts from 6/30/2020-45576CR) about the Ellis County District Attorney following due process stating that they dismissed the original charge first and the original bond with it and then filed anew charge for stalking.  She went on to say that bond conditions were not set for the new charge and this was the reason for being in court on this day.

I called their bluff by calling their pretend victim (Lauren Kersh) to get answers about my case.  I was not arrested even though they were supposedly taking me to trial for stalking.  I was not arrested because there was no criminal charge against me.  No bond conditions were set, and no emergency protective order was issued because there was no criminal charge for them to belong to.

This court date was the result of me calling Lauren Kersh, (they were mad).  I told Judge Cindy Ermatinger that I would not follow her bond conditions and that I would sit in jail until trial.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger told me that I was not allowed to go to jail and that I would have to violate her bond conditions first then go to jail (fraud).

I violated Judge Cindy Ermatinger’s bond conditions, and she issued an order to rearrest me on the original charge (there is no original charge).  In response, the Ellis County Deputy Court Clerk issued a warrant for my arrest for their indictment, not for stalking.  I have been arrested by indictment.  An indictment flapping in the wind belonging to no arrest, official complaint or affidavit of probable cause.  This is fraud, no arrest + no official complaint + no affidavit of probable cause = no indictment.  They are juggling their false indictment.  Sometimes they say it belongs to the original charge that was dismissed; sometimes they say it belongs to a second charge of stalking that doesn’t exist; and sometimes they say it is the second charge of stalking.  All of these are a violation of my right to due process.  Their indictment is fraud even if their evidence were legitimate (the way it was gained), however, if their evidence had been legitimate in the first place, they would have followed due process by dismissing the original charge and filing a new charge.

Government

Government Dishonesty is Bad.
We must find honest people
and make them accountable
to We the People.
