Attorney Dishonesty, Misconduct, and Corruption

John Eric Armstrong - Ellis County Texas Corruption Victim - Part 6

Wilson Patrick 200x197

This is former Ellis County District Attorney Patrick Wilson.  He is as crooked as they come.  He is corruption personified.  He is a disgrace.  I hope I can help him find his way to prison.  Patrick Wilson played an important role in placing 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 6

This is John Eric Armstrong - Ellis County Texas Corruption Victim - Part 6 -- His story in his words:

Fraud in the Courts

Public Records Request August 2019

In August 2019, I requested all public records pertaining to my arrest (documents and videos).  The Ellis County District Attorney requested an opinion from the Texas Attorney General’s Office.  The Ellis County District Attorney wanted to withhold the evidence citing two exceptions pertaining to an ongoing investigation.

 
Reclassification Letter October 3, 2019

The Ellis County District Attorney took false witness statements (fabricated evidence) to the Ellis County Grand Jury on October 3, 2019.  The Ellis County Grand Jury rejected the stalking charge on this day.  The Ellis County District Attorney “reclassified” the case as criminal trespassing (Misdemeanor B).  By “reclassifying” the case as criminal trespassing, litigation for stalking was permanently over.  This meant that the Ellis County District Attorney could no longer take the case back to the Ellis County Grand Jury for stalking.  The only way the

Ellis County District Attorney could take the same evidence back to the Ellis County Grand Jury was if new evidence of stalking was gained.

To claim there is new evidence, the Ellis County District Attorney would have to dismiss the original charge altogether, and the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office would have to arrest and charge me with stalking a second time on that new evidence (due process).  Anything else is taking fruit from the poisonous tree (using illegally gained evidence).  Ellis County Judge Cindy Ermatinger has confirmed that this is due process in court transcripts from 6/30/2020 (Ellis County Case No. 45576CR).  The Ellis County District Attorney changed the date of offense from the 7th of July, 2019 when Shane Thompson made Joe Fitzgerald’s arrest to the 10th of June, 2019 when the video recordings were made of the witness statements taken on June the 9th by Jerry Whitt and Mike McKenna (when Lauren Kersh pulled a gun).

Shane Thompson did not take any of the witness statements from the 9th of June or write any of the reports, but he made an arrest using language from Mike McKenna’s and Jerry Whitt’s reports from the 10th (fraud).  They had to change the date to the 10th because Shane Thompson arrested me on the 7th of July, 2019 for the reports written on June 10, 2019 (fraud).  

Shane Thompson can’t make an arrest on behalf of another officer.  So, Shane Thompson had to make it look like he took a witness statement and made a report on the 10th.  So, they backdated their arrest for an assaultive felony.  Shane Thompson needed to make it look like he was involved from the beginning so that the video recordings detailing the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office’s crimes against me would appear to belong to a crime committed by me allowing them to withhold the video evidence from me.  Shane Thompson’s report itself proves that it wasn’t entered until after the case was closed.  Shane Thompson’s report has an asterisk and a 1 next to it (*1) signifying that it was made after the case was closed sometime after July.  The Ellis County District Attorney changed the date to the 10th of June and made Shane Thompson the original arresting officer so they could withhold the evidence from June.  The Ellis County District Attorney had Shane Thompson write a false report for the 10th of June to make it look like Shane Thompson was involved from the beginning.

 
The Indictment October 29, 2019 -- January, 2020

The Ellis County District Attorney needed ongoing litigation against me to justify withholding the video evidence from me.  They falsified an indictment to coerce me into taking a plea deal (fraud).

On October 29, 2019, the Texas Attorney General’s Office made a ruling on my request for public records.  The Texas Attorney General’s Office ruled that the evidence Ellis County was trying to withhold (the videos from June 9th and corresponding reports from the 10th) did not belong to any specific investigation, (it did not belong to a crime).  The Texas Attorney General’s Office ruled that they could withhold the evidence until it had been submitted to the Ellis County Grand Jury.

By the time the Texas Attorney General’s Office made this ruling, the evidence had already been submitted and rejected by the Ellis County Grand Jury for prosecution (October 3, 2019).  On October 3, 2019, the Ellis County District Attorney reclassified their stalking case as criminal trespassing (misdemeanor B) ending litigation for stalking permanently.  So, the Ellis County District Attorney’s Office had to give me the video and document evidence.  While the video evidence is not against me for any crime, it is evidence against Lauren Kersh and the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office of an assault and a false arrest.  The Ellis County District Attorney’s Office knew I would go to law enforcement and the media if I obtained my own copies of the evidence.  The Ellis County District Attorney expressed their concerns about me going to the media in a letter dated December 11, 2019 to the Texas Attorney General’s Office to dispute their previous ruling stating that I could have the evidence.  The Ellis County District Attorney states that they should be able to withhold the information because I was still charged with a misdemeanor and that there was an outstanding felony warrant for my arrest.

They said they didn’t want me to destroy evidence (what evidence?) or attempt to evade arrest.  They also state that they believe I would share the evidence with a third party (law enforcement, media).  Most of this letter was redacted in my copy sent to me by the Ellis County District Attorney however, this portion was strangely left for me to see.  The Ellis County District Attorney needed an admission of guilt from me to stop me from going to the media. Coercing me into taking a plea deal (admission of guilt) would justify them withholding the evidence and to destroy my credibility as the victim (witness).

At about the same time of the Texas Attorney General’s ruling, I mailed the 14-page letter to Lauren Kersh.  The 14-page letter could not be used as new evidence for stalking because the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office did not arrest and charge me with stalking for mailing the letter to Lauren Kersh.  The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office would like to have charged me but the 14-page letter contained none of the elements for stalking or any other crime (no probable cause) as proven in court transcripts from 7/9/2020 (Case No. 103654 CLL).  In early November 2019, the 14-page letter was sent all the way up to Ellis County Sheriff Chuck Edge himself, and no probable cause could be found (proven in county emails).  On November 7, 2019, Shane Thompson sent an email to the Ellis County District Attorney pertaining to the 14-page letter.

Shane Thompson states that I haven’t done anything but asks the Ellis County District Attorney if they can do anything for their victim (Lauren Kersh).  So, Shane Thompson was asking the Ellis County District Attorney to take action against me even though I had not done anything.

On November 21, 2019, the Ellis County District Attorney purportedly took the same fabricated evidence (false witness statements) of stalking back to the Ellis County Grand Jury gaining an indictment that did not belong to a complaint and was gained using false witness statements. Even If their evidence was legitimate, they had missed their chance when they reclassified the charge as a misdemeanor, but their evidence is not legit and comes from a false arrest.  This means their indictment is fraud in two ways.  It is fraud by the way it was gained (evidence from an old case) which is fruit from the poisonous tree, and it is fraud by its content (it was gained on false witness statements) which is also fruit from the poisonous tree.

They claimed the 14-page letter was new evidence of stalking even though there was no probable cause as evidenced in the court transcripts from 7/9/2020 and by the fact that the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office did not arrest and charge me with stalking a second time for mailing the letter.  The Ellis County District Attorney had a false statement they were calling an indictment.  It did not belong to any charge (no arrest, official complaint, or affidavit of probable cause).

The indictment was gained under false pretenses.  The Ellis County District Attorney mailed the indictment to me with a court date (no arrest).  This is absolutely criminal; their indictment is a knockoff/phony/counterfeit/forgery/fake falsified document/fraud.  Whatever the correct term is, it is not real; it holds no authority to take me to trial, and its very existence is a crime (a violation of my right to due process).  No arrest + no official complaint + no affidavit of probable cause = no indictment (fraud).

The Ellis County District Attorney gained an indictment they can’t use, to coerce me into taking a plea deal to justify withholding the evidence of a false arrest and an assault destroying my credibility as a victim (witness).  They tricked me into thinking I had to go to trial to scare me into taking their plea deal.  This is criminal, and it is egregious.  Their indicted cause number (45576 CR) has never been submitted to the state (there is no CR43, state-submitted fingerprints.)

The Ellis County District Attorney again changed the date of the offense from the 7th of July to the 10th of June because the language from Shane Thompson’s arrest on the 7th of July is from the 10th of June, when the reports were made for the video recorded witness statements from the 9th of June.  They had their police officer, (Shane Thompson) write a report after the case was closed to make it look like he (the arresting officer) was involved in the case since the 9th/10th of June so they could justify withholding the video evidence from June by claiming it belonged to a crime committed by me.

On December 11, 2019, the Ellis County District Attorney sent a letter to the Texas Attorney General’s Office asking them to reconsider their ruling about the release of the evidence.  The Ellis County District Attorney states in their letter that I was still charged with a misdemeanor and there was an outstanding felony warrant out for my arrest.  The Ellis County District Attorney stated in their letter that because of the outstanding warrant, they had concerns about me trying to evade arrest or destroy evidence.  They also voiced their concerns about me sharing the evidence with a third party (the media).

The Ellis County District Attorney was trying to make the point that even though litigation for stalking was over, there was still plenty of litigation against me and that I was shady.  The Texas Attorney General’s Office held to their original ruling that the Ellis County District Attorney had to give me the evidence.  To this day, the Ellis County District Attorney has not given me the information that I requested.  My copy of their letter was mostly redacted however, this portion of the letter remained.  They did this to scare me into thinking I would be arrested at any time (it worked).  I called the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office to see about this outstanding warrant, but the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office didn’t have a warrant.  I called the courts who told me that “yes” they did have a warrant on me for stalking.  I have never been arrested on this warrant.

Judge Cindy Ermatinger
aka "Irma Tingler"

Arraignment January 7, 2020

Ellis County Judge Cindy Ermatinger allowed the Ellis County District Attorney to take me through the trial process on an indictment belonging to nothing (no complaint).  Judge Cindy Ermatinger didn’t actually arraign me as there is no arrest, complaint, or affidavit of probable cause (no paperwork).  This is fraud.  I could not even be in her courtroom for anything without an arrest, official complaint, an affidavit of probable cause. No arrest + no official complaint + no affidavit of probable cause = not legal (fraud).

Judge Cindy Ermatinger did not set a bond or issue an emergency protective order for Lauren Kersh.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger couldn’t do any of this because all that existed was an indictment flapping in the wind no arrest, no official complaint, no affidavit of probable cause = not legal (fraud).  The indictment had its own case number (DA#01-17206) and cause number (45576 CR), and the only document that belonged to it was the indictment.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger never spoke to me.  My court-appointed attorney’s substitute told me I was still on the same bond and that I could go home (no arrest).  My bond company, AAA Bail Bonds, thought that I was still on the same bond as well.

 
The Original Charge Dismissed January 9, 2020

Only two days after the arraignment, the Ellis County District Attorney dismissed the original charge altogether (DA# 01-17095).  The Ellis County District Attorney made it appear that they refiled the case as the indictment writing the cause number on the dismissal paperwork.  They also stated that they transferred the bond from one charge to the indictment.  The dismissal paperwork is major proof of fraud.  They can’t refile a case that’s being dismissed, and they can never transfer a bond from one charge to another or to an indictment flapping in the wind (fraud).

They needed to make it look like their indictment belonged to something.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger has admitted in court transcripts (6/30/2020) that this is due process.  She said that when the original charge was dismissed, the bond went with it, and that they had to dismiss the original charge altogether (can’t refile).  If they could simply refile the case, the original bond would stay with the charge not needing to be transferred.  That they are trying to transfer the bond proves that they can’t do what they claim.  They tried to make it look like the indictment belonged to the original charge.  Both my bond company, AAA Bail Bonds, and I were kept in the dark on this.  For the next six months, I continued to report to AAA Bail Bonds even though there was no criminal charge against me.

The Ellis County District Attorney didn’t give AAA Bail Bonds a copy of the paperwork because the bond company knows they can’t transfer a bond or refile a charge that’s being dismissed.  AAA Bail Bonds would have told me what they did.  In July, Lauren from AAA Bail Bonds told my mother that when Ellis County makes this kind of mistake, they always drop their case.  She went on to say that for them to keep trying, they must have a vendetta against me.

My Court-Appointed Attorney Kent McGuire -- January 2020 – June 2020

Kent McGuire helped the Ellis County District Attorney coerce me by not confronting the judge about not having a complaint or an affidavit of probable cause in their case.  Kent McGuire knew that I had not been charged as I asked him if I would be arrested in December, and he told me no.  Kent McGuire claimed that I would not be arrested as they were doing something called a “walk through” which did not require an arrest.

This was a lie as a “walk through” absolutely requires an arrest.  A “walk through” is where a defendant makes arrangements to post bond before arrest.  So, the defendant walks into jail, is booked into jail, a bond is posted, and he walks out of jail (a “walk through”).  Kent McGuire was never allowed to represent me as this case was never a legal proceeding.  No arrest + no official complaint +no affidavit of probable cause = not legal (fraud). All Kent McGuire had to do was to confront the judge in court with the truth about fraud (no arrest, no official complaint, no affidavit of probable cause).  He needed to confront them that they didn’t even have the required paperwork to take me to trial.

In my first conversation with Kent McGuire, he told me that he knew Lauren Kersh and her brother, Joe Fitzgerald, and that they were great people (conflict of interest).  Kent McGuire asked me if I wanted him to contact Lauren Kersh.  I told him that I did, and I wanted him to do an investigation as well.  Kent McGuire never contacted Lauren Kersh, and he never did an investigation.  Over the next few months, I sent Kent McGuire several representation letters asking Kent McGuire to do an investigation and to honor his word and contact Lauren Kersh concerning why she pulled a gun.  The most Kent McGuire ever did was to send two requests for public records that I could have sent myself.

All Kent McGuire had to do was to confront the judge in court about fraud.  At the time, I did not know what they did with the paperwork.  So, I didn’t know how to say what I can say now, but Kent McGuire knew.  Any Attorney would know this by looking at the paperwork or lack thereof.  On January 22, 2020, I went to Kent McGuire’s office to view the evidence.  Kent McGuire did not want me coming to his office to view the evidence over and over so he gave me the disc and told me to go make a copy.  The Texas Attorney General’s office had already ruled that the Ellis County District Attorney had to give me the evidence but they never would give me a copy.

 
First Pre-trial March 4, 2020

During the first pre-trial, I tried to fire Kent McGuire for a conflict of interest.  Kent McGuire showed me the Ellis County District Attorney’s plea deal which was deferred adjudication.  I told Kent McGuire I would not consider a plea deal.  I told Kent McGuire I wanted to talk to the judge about firing him.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger wouldn’t let me fire Kent McGuire.  She told me the only way I could fire my attorney was if I hired a new one.  I told the judge that Kent McGuire knew Lauren Kersh and Joe Fitzgerald, and I asked her if I could at least get a new court-appointed attorney.  Judge Cindy Ermatinger told me “no,” that it is not a conflict of interest as she knows Joe Fitzgerald as well, as he is frequently in the courtroom (bias).  This is proven in court transcripts from 3/4/2020.  Lauren Kersh worked as a transport officer in this court and she knows every Ellis County judge, State attorney, and defense attorney.  Her brother Joe Fitzgerald also knows these same people as he is a Sergeant over investigations and spends a lot of time in these courtrooms.

 
Meeting with Kent McGuire 3/7/2020

Since the judge wouldn’t let me get rid of Kent McGuire, I went to speak with him to see if I could get him to do anything.  At the time, I didn’t know that there was no complaint.  I thought that I was still on the first charge.  The Ellis County District Attorney led me to believe this, and it is reflected on their dismissal paperwork.  I showed Kent McGuire the complaint from the first charge and told him to read it along with the affidavit of probable cause.  He didn’t want to look at it but finally did and asked, “what am I looking at here?”  I told him to show me where probable cause exists in either of these documents. He looked again and said that there doesn’t appear to be any.

Kent McGuire went on to say, “well, they must have something because they arrested you.”  I asked Kent McGuire to contact Ellis County Judge Todd Little on my behalf to request that he contact The Texas Rangers to investigate the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office for their false arrest.  Kent McGuire said that he knew Judge Todd Little and that he would speak to him about this.  Kent McGuire later refused to contact Judge Todd Little on my behalf.  Later, my mother contacted Judge Todd Little about this.  Judge Todd Little said that he couldn’t do anything because several other elected officials were involved.

I asked Kent McGuire to find out why Joe Fitzgerald didn’t write a report.  A few weeks later, Kent McGuire contacted me saying that he spoke to Joe Fitzgerald, and Joe said he didn’t write a report because he recused himself from the case.  He can’t recuse himself from writing a report.  Kent McGuire did nothing.  All he had to do was confront the judge in court.  I later found out from a friend that Kent McGuire goes to the same church Joe Fitzgerald does.

 
Call to Kersh June 26, 2020

By the end of June, I was getting closer to their final pre-trial hearing which was set for July.  I believed at the time that they could take me to trial and my court-appointed attorney wasn’t doing anything on my behalf.  Kent McGuire would not investigate Lauren Kersh or the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, and he refused to contact the Texas Rangers regarding the false arrest.  I knew everything Ellis County was doing was fraud but I didn’t know how they finagled the paperwork.  So, I thought that I was about to have to stand trial when I was the victim of the crime.  I couldn’t get anyone to investigate the thugs who did this.  I did my own investigation and called Lauren Kersh.  On June 26, 2020, I called Lauren Kersh and it went to voicemail.  I left a message saying, “I want to know why you pulled a gun on me.  I want to know why your brother set me up.  In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, you have to confess what you did.  In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, you won’t have another good day until you come forward.”  

Kent McGuire called me and left a voicemail saying, “well, you called the victim and that’s a big no-no but don’t worry the judge probably won’t throw you in jail for it. The judge has set a court date for 6/30/2020.”  I was not arrested.  Supposedly I was out on bond with AAA Bail Bonds, but I was not arrested.

Judges

Judicial Corruption is rampant.  Our rights to a fair trial are a myth.  Many judges are totally corrupt.

Constitution

Our fundamental rights have been taken away by a government of wrongs. Stolen by corruption.

Attorneys

Misconduct is everywhere. Dishonesty abounds. Perjury, subornation of perjury, corruption!

Police

Abuse, Dishonesty, Corruption.  It's all common with Police and Law Enforcement.

Government

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