FBI Very Interested in Utah Judicial Corruption

According to a source that will go unnamed, the FBI doesn’t think too highly of Utah. He referred to the state as the “Wild West” for corruption. Many individuals, he claims, have been duped into not ratting out their brethren who are members of the Mormon Church.

Apparently, some within the agency still resent the hatchet job the Deseret News and KSL.com (Both owned by the Mormon Church) laid on their good name back in 2011:

According to a source that will go unnamed, the FBI doesn’t think too highly of Utah. He referred to the state as the “Wild West” for corruption. Many individuals, he claims, have been duped into not ratting out their brethren who are members of the Mormon Church.

Apparently, some within the agency still resent the hatchet job the Deseret News and KSL.com (Both owned by the Mormon Church) laid on their good name back in 2011:

“The sources provided details of multiple violations of internal FBI policies, including lax oversight of highly classified documents stored inside the Salt Lake City office’s Secret Compartmented Information Facility; the failure to enforce rules that restrict access to areas where classified documents are kept; violations of policies that govern the issuance of FBI credentials; and concerns that high-level FBI officials may have covered up a formal complaint of security violations.

The FBI declined to officially comment on any of the allegations.” (Deseret News)

 

“The problem is a unified group of victims coming forward”, explained our source, “Before the FBI gets involved they need multiple statements from multiple victims.” The source implied that it was too easy for the forces of corruption to impune, discredit or intimidate a single victim.

“You bring the FBI multiple statements, from multiple victims, and they will turn this state upside down. They have been waiting a long time for this opportunity.”

Kelly Peterson - Utah's Most Vile Lawyer?

Utah’s Most Corrupt Lawyer Ignores Subpoenas

Kelly Peterson - Utah's Most Corrupt Lawyer?

Kelly Peterson – Utah’s Most Corrupt Lawyer?

Looks like another complaint against Utah’s allegedly most corrupt lawyer will be filed shortly with the Utah Bar. Under Utah law, any party in a lawsuit has the right to Discovery.

“Standard discovery and extraordinary discovery. Depending on the amount of damages claimed, a party is entitled to a certain amount of standard discovery, meaning the number of depositions, interrogatories, requests for admission, and requests for the production of documents. If a party needs more than the standard amount, the parties can stipulate to extraordinary discovery or file a motion asking the judge to order extraordinary discovery.”

But, Kelly Peterson is not just a defendant in a high profile lawsuit. He also seems woefully ignorant of the basic facts of law. In fact, Mr. Peterson is claiming billing records which would expose the fact that he was possibly trading legal representation for sex, are protected by attorney client privilege.

The law states that all financial records are public under Rule 26. Peterson cannot invoke privilege simply because the information will incriminate him. What is privileged are communications between an attorney and client, notes etc. Yet, even when claiming privilege:

b)(8) Claims of privilege or protection of trial preparation materials.

(b)(8)(A) Information withheld. If a party withholds discoverable information by claiming that it is privileged or prepared in anticipation of litigation or for trial, the party shall make the claim expressly and shall describe the nature of the documents, communications, or things not produced in a manner that, without revealing the information itself, will enable other parties to evaluate the claim.

(b)(8)(B) Information produced. If a party produces information that the party claims is privileged or prepared in anticipation of litigation or for trial, the producing party may notify any receiving party of the claim and the basis for it. After being notified, a receiving party must promptly return, sequester, or destroy the specified information and any copies it has and may not use or disclose the information until the claim is resolved. A receiving party may promptly present the information to the court under seal for a determination of the claim. If the receiving party disclosed the information before being notified, it must take reasonable steps to retrieve it. The producing party must preserve the information until the claim is resolved.

SO, what we have here is a clear case for disbarment based on Kelly Peterson’s attempts to obstruct justice as an officer of the Court. Where are Utah’s Law Enforcement Officers? A criminal investigation of Kelly Peterson and his alleged sexual abuse are long overdue.

Utah Bar Investigating Lawyer Kelly Peterson

Kelly Peterson has been reported to the Utah Bar for allegedly knowingly suborning Perjury from Alyssa Alanis, having sex with Allanis and Breaking Federal Welfare Laws

Kelly Peterson has been reported to the Utah Bar for allegedly knowingly suborning Perjury from Alyssa Alanis, having sex with Allanis and Breaking Federal Welfare Laws

Utah Attorney Kelly Peterson is now officially the subject of an investigation by the Utah State Bar. The OPC File No. is 16-0452. With the well-documented misconduct charges hanging over his head, and the viral publicity generated in this case, it would be difficult for the Utah Bar to try and brush this under the rug.

Should they make the attempt, there is no doubt that the victims in the case will file a Federal RICO complaint against the Utah Bar for conspiracy, obstruction of justice, violating Federal Anti-Trust laws among other things.

READ THE COMPLAINT HERE

The victims have been striving to gain relief from the evil machinations of Kelly Peterson and his client Alyssa Alanis for over two years. Apparently, they have had enough of the abuse heaped upon them by the Utah County Justice system and have filed a Racketeering Complaint against them in Utah 4th District Court.

They have also filed a Bar Complaint against Attorney Mark Stubbs. HERE

It seems that the mess started when Alyssa Alanis was prosecuted and convicted for Assaulting her now ex-husband (READ HERE)

The victims believe Alyssa Alanis paid for her legal fees with sexual favors to Kelly Peterson and are accusing her of possible prostitution and other crimes (Article Here)

THE UTAH BAR

The Utah Bar Association grants admittance to the practice of law, and has the ability to take away an attorney’s license for misconduct. Since Kelly Peterson went on record stating that “Perjury is not a crime in Utah”, it is clear that he not only confesses to the crime, but also dismisses it with another perjured statement!

Sex with clients, suborning perjury, conspiracy, obstruction of justice. Sounds like Kelly Peterson is on the wrong side of the Justice System. We will be watching this process very closely and will report on the outcome.

Welfare Recipient has two $300 per hour Attorneys Working for Her.

Following is from the Bar Association Ethics Panel:

Issue:

What are the ethical obligations of an attorney who, unaware his client will lie, hears the client commit perjury or otherwise materially mislead a tribunal?

2 Opinion: Counsel who knows that a client has materially misled the court may not remain silent and continue to represent the client; to do so would be “assisting” the client in committing a fraud on the court. Rather, counsel is obligated to remonstrate with the client and attempt to persuade the client to rectify the misleading or untruthful statements to the court. If this is unsuccessful, counsel must seek to withdraw. If withdrawal is denied, counsel must disclose the fraud to the court.

3 Facts
: This issue came to the Committee in the narrow setting of a criminal sentencing hearing in which the court asks the lawyer’s client, who is not under oath, about the client’s prior criminal history. The defendant misleads the court and gives false material information that counsel knows to be untruthful. Counsel is now confronted with ethical considerations.

Analysis:
A. Counsel may not remain silent and continue to represent the client; to do so would be “assisting” the client in committing a fraud on the court.

4 Rule 3.3(a)(2) provides that “[a] lawyer shall not knowingly . . . fail to disclose a material fact to a tribunal when disclosure is necessary to avoid assisting a criminal or fraudulent act by the client.”1The issue on the facts presented here is whether a lawyer, by remaining silent in response to unanticipated false client testimony not presented by the lawyer, is “assisting” the client in committing a fraud on the court.

5 Ethical dilemmas arising under Rule 3.3 present difficult issues requiring balancing of competing duties. A lawyer’s duty of candor to the court must be balanced against the duty of loyalty to and zealousness on behalf of a client and the duty to maintain confidential client information.2

6 After the adoption of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct by the American Bar Association, the ABA’s Committee on Professional Ethics reconsidered its prior opinions regarding a lawyer’s duties in response to false testimony by a client. In ABA Formal Opinion 87-353, the ABA Committee stated that Model Rules 3.3(a) and 3.3(b) were a “major policy change with regard to a lawyer’s duty . . . when his client testifies falsely. It is now mandatory under [Model Rule 3.3] for a lawyer who knows the client has committed perjury, to disclose this knowledge to the tribunal if the lawyer cannot persuade the client to rectify the perjury.”3That opinion considered the same facts presented here: “judge asks the defendant whether he has a criminal record and he falsely answers that he has none.”4The opinion states that “where the client has lied to the court about the client’s criminal record, the conclusion of Opinion 287 [decided in 1953 under the 1908 Canons of Professional Ethics] that the lawyer is prohibited from disclosing the client’s false statement to the court is contrary to the requirement of Model Rule 3.3. This rule imposes a duty on the lawyer, when the lawyer cannot persuade the client to rectify the perjury, to disclose the client’s false statement to the tribunal . . . .”5

Kelly Peterson, Utah Lawyer, Faces Racketeering Lawsuit

Kelly Peterson is being sued under the "Racketeering in Corrupt Organizations" Law

Kelly Peterson-Utah Attorney

Article Submitted by: T. J. Monson

5/26/16

When one thinks of R.I.C.O, the Racketeering in Corrupt Organizations Act, the mind usually conjures images of Al Capone like gangsters taking the 5th to avoid “sleeping with the fishes.” Not a small town Utah divorce attorney.

Kelly Peterson, however, seems to want to keep this lawsuit out of the limelight. He filed a motion on the case, currently in the 4th Utah District Court, to seal all the case files. This has caused many to speculate that Mr. Peterson is afraid of what might actually come out when this case goes to trial. Sealing a case is an extraordinary measure rarely used except when information can be damaging to the public interest.

So what, exactly, is Mr. Peterson afraid of?

It seems that Kelly Peterson, along with his client, one Alyssa Alanis are accused of using his privileged position to enter into a sexual relationship with Miss Alanis in exchange for representing her in custody and divorce matters.

Legal representation for sex hardly seems to rise to the level of racketeering. Unless of course, that sex was exchanged for money or something else of value. Then it becomes prostitution. Prostitution is definitely a R.I.C.O. violation.

As Nixon learned, its not the crime itself that will destroy you, its the cover-up. So, again under R.I.C.O, it is the conspiracy to cover up the crime that makes it even more sinister.

The complaint also alleges that Mr. Peterson gave Miss Alanis an STD. That STD is herpes. The complaint states that Mr. Peterson has the disease as evidenced by cold sores on his facial area. It also alleges that Miss Alanis tried to blame the complainant for the STD, but he tested negative for Herpes.

The Complainant also stated that Kelly Peterson and Alyssa Alanis placed his unborn child in jeopardy of contracting the STD, for which their is no known cure.

Miss Alanis, who claimed to be destitute when she was prosecuted by Spanish Fork, Utah for Assault and Domestic Violence (she pled no contest) relied on a public defender paid for by the taxpayers. While her case made its way through the criminal system, somehow she managed to maintain the services of Kelly Peterson, an attorney that charges between $250-$300 per hour.

More will be reported on this case as information becomes available.
