Utah Judicial Corruption Exposes State to Class Action Lawsuit

                     Utah Judicial Corruption Exposes State to Class Action Lawsuit

 

Dear Sean:

Since 2001 I have been the victim of unlawful and illegal harassment resulting from my actions as a whistleblower against Farmers Insurance, Joe Cannon and Chris Cannon. I exposed the company for its unlawful pattern of overcharging Mormons for their auto insurance, harassing and terminating Mormons for their religious beliefs and discrimination against Mormon Church Leaders.

I went to Congressman Cannon for assistance and he and his brother used my situation to extort campaign contributions from Farmers Insurance. This I also exposed, as well as Cannon’s criminal handling of Geneva Steel’s Pension Fund, Fraudulant activity towards Geneva Steel Pensioners and towards their Creditors.

Mr. Cannon had separated assets worth up to 90 million dollars from Geneva Steel prior to taking the company into bankruptcy. He had also left the Pension plan only 10% funded and fraudulantly turned the Plan over to the Federal Pension Guarantee Corporation for funding.

I played the major role in bringing those assets back into the bankruptcy.

More recently, my son was assaulted by his now ex-wife. She was prosecuted and convicted. He was awarded full custody in the Restraining Order Hearing.

Commissioner Thomas Patton unlawfully and unjustly reversed that custody decree. He also failed to recuse himself based on his past Executive Position with Geneva Steel and his obvious conflict of interest with me and my family.

He also bragged in open Court that he ate lunch with Utah Attorney Kelly Peterson, who was defending my son’s ex-wife. Even more troubling was the fact that my son worked for Thomas Patton at a restaurant owned by his wife and himself when he was a teenager.

Thomas Patton made multiple illegal and unlawful rulings in my son’s divorce and custody hearings, which we have documented.
He also permitted perjured testimony and suborning perjury from Kelly Peterson and his client.

I became suspicious of Kelly Peterson’s relationship with my son’s ex-wife and his unwillingness to provide any billing records whatsoever. Peterson had a cold sore and my son’s ex-wife contracted herpes in her last trimester of pregnancy, placing my son’s child in physical danger of also contracting the STD.

My son tested negative for any and all diseases.

Kelly Peterson took $1500 from me right before the divorce to represent my son and his ex in a custody matter involving her other child. He refused to refund the money and also refused to recuse himself from the divorce matter.

Commissioner Patton was also notified of this conflict but refused to take any action.

Attorney Dan McKay, who represented my son, refused to file an order for recusal with the Court based on his relation ship with the Kelly Peterson, who served as his law clerk.

Mr. McKay also opened my son up to additional liability and prosecution through his structuring of the Divorce Decree.

After my son was taken before Commissioner Patton for accusations that he had not paid off divorce debts (which he had indeed paid) and threatened with imprisonment for the same. I notified the Court of my intent to file a UTAH RICO claim against Attorney Kelly Peterson and his client. which I did.

The Presiding Judge over the case was moved up to the Utah Court of Appeals, but not before he unlawfully sealed the case contrary to RICO state statute.

In the filing, I documented multiple instances of perjury and suborning perjury by Kelly Peterson and his client. I also asked for a Jury Trial.

The Presiding Judge, Christine S Johnson, unlawfully cited Federal RICO law to deny me and my son our day in Court, She dismissed the case without prejudice and told me I could only refile with her.

I was accusing Kelly Peterson of exchanging Legal Services for Sex with my son’s ex-wife. I was denied my Constitutional Rights of Due Process and Discovery. My Subpoenas for billing records were ignored and unenforced by the Court, even after they were stamped with the Court Seal.

To add insult to injury, Judge Christine S Johnson awarded $7,000 in legal fees to Mark Stubbs, who represented my son’s ex-wife in the RICO case, three months after the case was dismissed without prejudice or judgement! Three months is well beyond the 2 weeks allowed by Utah Law to file a request for legal fees.

I am a Professional Journalist, I just learned that I had written multiple articles about Judge Christine S Johnson’s leniancy towards rapists and pedophiles. The articles are still in the search engines under her name.

She should have never heard my case in the first place, due to the glaring animosity she had towards me for my investigative journalism. Clearly, I had no chance of a fair trial.

I am notifying you of these facts not because I expect Justice from you or your office, but because I plan on naming you in a Class Action Lawsuit against the State of Utah with RICO considerations. You are now officially aware and will be held liable for your inaction in these matters.

Since my story has circulated, others are coming to me with stories of their own. You have 48 hours to meet with me personally at my location and try to resolve these issues in a way that is beneficial to all of the victims of your corrupt legal system.

I am publishing this for my own safety and the safety of my family.

Signed:

Paul A Drockton

Utah Corrupt Lawyers Defeated in First RICO Battle! Lawyer Loses It!

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

Welfare Recipient has two $300 per hour Attorneys Working for Her. She now stands accused of Welfare Fraud.

Kelly Peterson - Utah's Most Corrupt Lawyer?

Kelly Peterson – Utah’s Most Corrupt Lawyer, lost Round 1 in his fight against RICO Charges.

Reportedly Lost His Composure After losing to a non-lawyer victim.

Reportedly Lost His Composure After losing to a non-lawyer victim.

In yesterday’s RICO hearing, a Utah Judge handed Utah’s most corrupt attorney, Kelly Peterson and his apparent co-conspirator, Attorney Mark Stubbs, a stunning defeat. Both had argued for dismissal of all RICO claims against Peterson and Stubb’s client, Alyssa Alanis, along with payment of their attorney fees.

The judge, apparently recognizing the merit of the claims, simply allowed the defendants to resubmit their complaint in the proper legal format.

Stubbs, after failing to have his way in Court, verbally assaulted the victim and stormed from the Courtroom.

While the hearing seemed to center on the Federal RICO Act and its grounds for redress, the claims made by the victims fall under the Utah Pattern of Unlawful Activities Act, which is far less restrictive. While the Federal Law seems to focus on specific criminal enterprises, the Utah Act focuses more on criminal intent.

76-10-1601.   This act is the “Pattern of Unlawful Activity Act.”

(1) “Enterprise” means any individual, sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, business trust, association, or other legal entity, and any union or group of individuals associated in fact although not a legal entity, and includes illicit as well as licit entities.
(2) “Pattern of unlawful activity” means engaging in conduct which constitutes the commission of at least three episodes of unlawful activity, which episodes are not isolated, but have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are   interrelated by distinguishing characteristics.

Taken together, the episodes shall demonstrate continuing unlawful conduct and be related either to each other OR to the enterprise. At least one of the episodes comprising a pattern of unlawful activity shall have occurred after July 31, 1981. The most recent act constituting part of a pattern of unlawful activity as defined by this part shall have occurred within five years of the commission of the next preceding act allegedas part of the pattern.
(3) “Person” includes any individual or entity capable of holding a legal or beneficial interest in property, including state, county, and local governmental entities.
(4) “Unlawful activity” means to directly engage in conduct or to solicit, request, command, encourage, or intentionally aid another person to engage in conduct which would constitute any offense described by the following crimes or categories of crimes, or to attempt or conspire to engage in an act which would constitute any of those offenses, regardless of whether the act is in fact charged or indicted by any authority or is classified as a misdemeanor or a felony:

We can only hope that the Judge will remember the difference between Federal RICO and the Utah Patterns of Unlawful Activity Act, or it will appear as if the Courts themselves are part of this criminal conspiracy, and attempting to deny the rights of innocent individuals that seek redress against a criminal conspiracy.

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.

 

Report Welfare Fraud & Corrupt Utah Lawyers: Call Utah Fraud Hot-line

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

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

When it was reported that Alyssa Alanis and Kelly Peterson were being sued under Utah RICO laws for alleged conspiracy, fraud, perjury, prostitution, etc., another very important aspect of the case went ignored. Welfare Fraud.

People in Utah work hard to pay their taxes, sometimes they need help from the State in the form of Welfare Assistance. There is nothing wrong with that. It is unlikely, however, that your average person on public assistance could afford a $300 per hour attorney to represent them in a divorce. Even more unlikely they could also contract with an additional attorney that charges $300 per hour in a Civil Case. That is two Attorneys on retainer at the same time, while collecting Welfare benefits.

If an individual can spend $600 per hour on high cost attorneys, how can they also be eligible for Food Stamps and other public assistance? Alyssa Alanis, now being sued under RICO, and her attorneys, Kelly Peterson and Mark Stubbs have some explaining to do to the people of Utah that pay her welfare benefits.

This isn’t our opinion, its the law.

Asset Limit (Utah Welfare Law)

“You can have no more than $2,000 in assets in order to qualify for financial assistance. This means you may have personal and non-excluded land, houses, buildings, and trailer homes that have value up to $2,000 and still receive assistance. You have up to nine months to sell real property on which you are not living.”

Lump Sum Problems

“If you receive a large sum of money while you are on financial assistance, DWS will declare you ineligible for the month you receive the payment. If you spend down the lump sum below the asset limit by the next month, you can re-qualify for benefits. If you expect to receive a lump sum, you may want to ask DWS to close your case for the month in which you will receive the payment. This will help you avoid an overpayment.”

Lump Sum  appearances in Alyssa Allanis’s account  also raises issues of Tax Fraud as well as Welfare Fraud, if they were not reported. Again, this is not our opinion.

Reporting and Record Keeping

 “it is important that you make timely and accurate reports of all changes in circumstances that might possibly affect your eligibility. An overpayment may occur if you fail to report changes in your circumstances. Additionally, you may be disqualified and face fraud charges which could also subject you to criminal prosecution.”

What if, as the lawsuit alleges, Kelly Peterson gave Alyssa Allanis his legal services for sexual favors? Or, if he or someone else is paying to defend her in the RICO lawsuit? The law states, “Payments made to a third party for your benefit (such as someone paying a bill you owe);” is considered unearned income and if nor reported, is Welfare Fraud. In kind services also need to be reported on your Tax Return.

NOW YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

Report Alyssa Alanis, Kelly Peterson and Mark Stubbs by calling the Utah Welfare Fraud Hotline:

“To reach the fraud hotline where callers can leave anonymous information regarding possible incidents of fraud, 7 days a week, 24 hours per day, call

(800) 955-2210. 

BYU Law School and Utah County Injustice

As we continue to report on malfeasance, misfeasance and total disregard for the written law in Utah County we have found something that links all the alleged conspirators together. They all graduated from Brigham Young University Law School!

Kelly Peterson: Currently stands accused of violating the RICO law, including charges of promoting prostitution, suborning perjury, fraud etc. etc. Mr. Peterson is a graduate of BYU LAW SCHOOL! (A fact he has since deleted from his website!)

If covering up alleged crimes is what they teach at BYU, then it appears that everyone involved here graduated with honors. In fact, it seems that every Judge that serves Utah County is connected through the BYU Alumni Association.

PRESIDING JUDGE DAVID N. MORTENSEN

Presiding Judge of the Utah 4th Judicial Court, DAVID N. MORTENSEN graduated from BYU Law School.  Judge Mortensen graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1993. He is an adjunct professor at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.  We wonder if he taught Kelly Peterson’s course on ethics!

JUDGE JENNIFER A. BROWN

JUDGE JENNIFER A. BROWN who replaced Mortensen on the Kelly Peterson RICO case is also a graduate of BYU Law School!! Judge Brown received a Juris Doctor degree from Brigham Young University‘s J. Reuben Clark Law School. 5/15.  How do you avoid a conflict of interest when you are presiding over a fellow BYU Alumni like Kelly Peterson???

JUDGE CHRISTINE S. JOHNSON

JUDGE CHRISTINE S. JOHNSON, who appears to be the next judge who will preside over the Kelly Peterson RICO Lawsuit is another BYU Law Graduate!!! Judge Johnson received her Juris Doctor in 1996 from the J. Reuben Clark School of Law at Brigham Young University.  Interestingly enough, She was employed as the assistant city attorney and city prosecutor at Spanish Fork City from 2003 until her appointment to the bench. Spanish Fork should have prosecuted Peterson’s co-defendant in the case, Alyssa Alanis, for fraud when she got a taxpayer funded lawyer for her criminal case while retaining a $300 lawyer for her divorce case. Did Peterson call in a few favors on this one???

There are 11 Judges in the 4th District Court. ALL ELEVEN JUDGES graduated from BYU Law School!!!!     (LINK)

Under Rule 29, Conflict of Interest it states:

(d)(1) In the courts of record, if a party believes that a fair and impartial trial cannot be had in the court location or in the county where the action is pending, that party may move to have the trial of the case take place with a jury from another county or the case transferred to a court location in a county where a fair trial may be held. Such motion shall be supported by an affidavit setting forth facts.

Do BYU grads get preferential treatment in Utah County Courts? It appears that all the BYU Law School Grads stick together. Even when the innocent people they persecute and deny justice to are members of the same Church.

Apparently, not all Mormons are created equal. Some are definitely more equal than others. Bring on the Feds. Every one of this Court’s Cases should be reviewed for bias.

SIGN THE PETITION

Alleged Utah RICO Victim Asks for Help!

Dear Sirs:  I feel that my life and the life of my son are now in danger due to my exposure of a secret cabal of Judges and Lawyers in Utah County. I have filed the following with the Utah Bar Association. If anything happens to me or my family, please note that it was not an accident! It will be a direct result of challenging this group of criminals in Utah!

Attn Billy Walker, Terrie McIntosh and John Baldwin of the Utah Bar

I wish to register an informal complaint under Article 5 Chapter 14 from the Judicial Council Rules of Judicial Administration. I also believe that theAttorney in question is a threat to the public and should be temporarily suspended until a final decision is reached by your Ethics Committee. I am litigating against the attorney, Kelly Peterson for what seem to be clear violations of the Ethics Code of Attorneys in Utah:

Rule 8.4. Misconduct.

It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to:

(a) violate or attempt to violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, knowingly assist or induce another to do so, or do so through the acts of another;

(b) commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects;

(c) engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation;

(d) engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice;

(e) state or imply an ability to influence improperly a government agency or official or to achieve results by means that violate the Rules of Professional Conduct or other law; or

(f) knowingly assist a judge or judicial officer in conduct that is a violation of applicable rules of judicial conduct or other law.

Comment

1. I and my son wrote a check to Attorney Kelly Peterson-Provo, in the amount of $1500 to represent my son and his then wife in a custodial matter involving his then wife’s child with another father. During the interview with my son and his now ex-wife, Mr. Peterson probed about my son’s relationship with his then wife. My son also noted that improper contact and initiated by Kelly Peterson with his then wife.

2. To my son’s surprise, after he had contracted with Kelly Peterson for representation, he received a notice from Mr. Peterson and Alyssa Alanis that Mr. Peterson was representing Alyssa in her divorce against my son! This is a clear violation of Rule 1.7. Conflict of Interest: Current Clients. which states

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b), a lawyer shall not represent a client if the representation involves a concurrent conflict of interest. A concurrent conflict of interest exists if:

(a)(1) The representation of one client will be directly adverse to another client; or

(a)(2) There is a significant risk that the representation of one or more clients will be materially limited by the lawyer’s responsibilities to another client, a former client or a third person or by a personal interest of the lawyer.

(b) Notwithstanding the existence of a concurrent conflict of interest under paragraph (a), a lawyer may represent a client if:

(b)(1) the lawyer reasonably believes that the lawyer will be able to provide competent and diligent representation to each affected client;

(b)(2) the representation is not prohibited by law;

(b)(3) the representation does not involve the assertion of a claim by one client against another client represented by the lawyer in the same litigation or other proceeding before a tribunal; and

(b)(4) each affected client gives informed consent, confirmed in writing

When asked for a refund of our $1500, for which we received no representation from Kelly Peterson, Kelly Peterson declined to refund the money. He also declined to withdraw from the divorce case in which he was representing my son’s ex-wife. Again, a clear violation of rule 1.7.  and 1.5 which states:

“(b) The scope of the representation and the basis or rate of the fee and expenses for which the client will be responsible shall be communicated to the client, preferably in writing, before or within a reasonable time after commencing the representation… Not refunding the fee amounts to theft by deception.

3. Again, to my son’s surprise, Kelly Peterson submitted various accounts of the same incident involving an Assault/Attempted Murder in order to fraudulantly attempt to obtain a restraining order, gain custody and prejudice the Court against my son. In fact, Alyssa Alanis was prosecuted and convicted of Assault and Domestic violence. This amounts to suborning perjury. Another violation:

Rule 4.1. Truthfulness in Statements to Others.

In the course of representing a client a lawyer shall not knowingly:

(a) Make a false statement of material fact or law to a third person; or

(b) Fail to disclose a material fact, when disclosure is necessary to avoid assisting a criminal or fraudulent act by a client, unless disclosure is prohibited by Rule 1.6.

We could not understand Kelly Peterson’s emotional attachment to Alyssa Alanis, nor his willingness to suborn perjury in every instance where it was expedient. Even more perplexing was the fact that Miss Allanis told the criminal court she was indigent and unable to afford legal services, while retaining Mr. Peterson, a reported $300 per hour divorce attorney. Again, this is a violation, and amounts to assisting with welfare fraud, criminal fraud etc.. Miss Allanis is a Welfare recipient as well.

When Miss Alanis falsely accused my son of giving her Herpes to fraudulantly obtain custody, we could not help but note that Me. Kelly Peterson often came to court with a rather large cold sore above his lip, one of the symptoms of herpes.  My son was tested for STDs and all tests were negative.

Based on all of our observations, and Miss Allanis’s apparent status as a welfare recipient, we could not help but conclude that she was getting her services from Kelly Peterson for free, a fact he never disclosed to any of the Courts. We have also been denied repeatedly in our attempts to get documents of his billing her or cancelled checks. We can only believe that Kelly Peterson is involved in an extra-marital affair with his client and giving her free legal representation.

To add salt to the wound he tried to have my son, imprisoned on a contempt charge which was thrown out by the Commissioner. We have been severely victimized by this legal embarassment that calls himself an Attorney.

We have also filed a CIVIL RICO lawsuit against Mr. Peterson and Miss Allanis, but, as long as he continues to practice law, he is a threat to others and should be suspended from the Utah Bar. We are willing to submit any documents you may require. We expect you will turn this into a formal inquiry and launch your own investigation based on the seriousness of the charges.

BTW. IN open Court, Kelly Peterson bragged about his influence over Commissioner Patton. Another violation of your professional standards. I could go one, but I am sure you will find more instances of violations through your own investigations.

We are to the point where we are seriously considering Civil  Federal Racketeering Charges against everyone that has aided and abetted Kelly Peterson in covering up this gross miscarriage of justice. We hope we don’t have to add the Utah Bar to our list of perpetrators.

Sincerely:

Paul A Drockton M.A.

When Bad Girls Get RICO. The Alyssa Alanis Mystique

Alyssa Alanis

By: T.J Monson

6/8/16

Utah is known as a family friendly state. Utah County, on the other hand, has a reputation for its lawyers and judges conspiring behind closed doors to come up with decisions that can only leave one scratching his or her head. Such is the case of Alyssa Alanis.

The welfare recipient, who is also the mother of three different children, from three different fathers, has all the physical traits for which many Mormon women are known for. Sweet mannered, soft-spoken, and physically attractive.

This is why it came as no small shock to Spanish Fork police when they were called out for a domestic assault in October of 2014. The small, 100 plus pound wet, Alanis, had just tried to kill her husband without any verifiable provocation.

The police report stated she had no visible, or invisible injuries. She had however, tried to choke her husband to death, hit him over the head with a wooden stool, and beat him repeatedly with a curtain rod. She was arrested.

After entering a plea of “No Contest”, Miss Alanis was subsequently prosecuted and convicted of Assault and Domestic Violence and placed on probation.  Her then husband was granted a Protective Order and Full Custody of their sole child.

Enter one Kelly Peterson.

In June, 2013 Kelly Peterson was contracted by both Alyssa and her then husband (who she later assaulted) to represent them in a custody matter involving another child. Her husband submitted a $1500 retainer.

Then things got weird. Instead of a child custody matter, Alyssa appears to have used the retainer paid by her then husband to file for divorce against him, using Kelly Peterson as her Attorney.  A clear conflict and ethics violation. Instead of refunding the retainer, Peterson kept it.

According to the current RICO filing, her now ex-husband believes that Kelly Peterson and Alyssa Alanis entered into a sexual relationship, and that Peterson allegedly exchanged legal work for sex. No billing records have been submitted to the Court to invalidate these claims. Instead, Alanis filed a rambling response claiming, “I am not a prostitute”.

In addition to the above, Miss Alanis accused her ex-husband of giving her an STD, which her mother claimed was Herpes. Her ex-husband was tested and found to be STD and Herpes free. Her ex also claims that Alyssa put their then unborn child at risk from the disease.

During the divorce proceedings, Alyssa claimed first that Spanish Fork city dropped all charges. In-spite of a police report and Court documents showing she was guilty of the assault, the Commissioner ruled to reverse custody of their mutual child. Alyssa was granted full custody and her ex, who had not been convicted of Assault or Domestic Violence, was given state minimum visitation.

It is reported in the Court filings that the victim had to go through three attorneys just to get that far.

Meanwhile, Miss Alanis was able to somehow afford a reported $300 an hour attorney, while she claimed to be indigent (broke) under oath, and unable to afford an attorney in her criminal case. Some might construe this as fraud. In, Utah, it is a crime. This was reportedly pointed out to the Spanish Fork Prosecutor who has yet to level any charges in the interests of the City’s taxpayers.

Are you scratching your head yet?

RICO Lawsuit Exposes Perjury Problems in Utah Legal System

6-7-2016

By: T.J. Monson

Kelly Peterson (Pictured) and Alyssa Alanis are Being Sued for Racketeering.

“Perjury, the crime of lying under oath, is a serious offense because it can derail the basic goal of the justice system—discovering the truth. Even the famous and the powerful have faced the consequences of perjury, which include prosecution (Barry Bonds), prison (Marion Jones), and impeachment (Bill Clinton).” (CDL.com)

In his response to the RICO complaint against him and his client (who stands accused of the crime of prostitution – trading sex for legal fees), Kelly Peterson submitted the following to the Court:

“More Importantly, Perjury is not an Unlawful Act.” (Kelly Peterson)

Under the state’s RICO Act crimes are defined as,

zz) false or inconsistent material statements, Section 76-8-502;
(aaa) false or inconsistent statements, Section 76-8-503;
(bbb) written false statements, Section 76-8-504; (RICO ACT)
So, in essence, Kelly Peterson just lied under oath, IE: committed perjury. This is a crime that should be punished with fines and up to six months in jail. But, as other documents in the case have shown, Mr. Peterson doesn’t appear to have a problem with perjury.
Its a good thing, his co-defendant is now being taken to task for lying about her assault and the origin of her STD. A Motion was filed to hold her in Contempt of Court for making false statements under oath.
If people are going to rely on the Courts for Justice than the Courts have to enforce their own rules on telling the truth, regardless of whether the Attorney is friends with the Judge or Commissioner.
Otherwise, why bother to tell people to solve their problems in Court? The Guilty party will only lie his or her way out of it. Which is what people tend to do when they commit criminal actions.
