Tonight on T.S. Radio: The Trial Lawyers Association: Holding Our Courts Hostage

October 6, 2013

Join us this evening as Bill Scheidler returns to discuss his undertakings in the State of Washington with regards to the “trial lawyers association”, which for all intense and purposes, runs this country including the probate courts.
They have enough hand-picked lawyers on the Bar Associations, in the legislature, in judicial positions and on various commissions, boards and other influential positions to control the corrupt courts we are forced to endure.

Should a citizen “file a complaint” that complaint is heard by the very ‘lawyers’ that are responsible for the nature of the complaint.  In other words, lawyers set the rules, interpret the rules, administer the rules, and impose penalties if they feel the rules have been broken.

Where does that leave you?

Auburn woman arrested for bilking $400,000 in fake cancer scheme

June 26, 2013

A 51-year-old Auburn woman was arrested Monday on federal wire fraud charges for faking cancer and bilking more than $400,000 from an elderly Auburn resident who believed her story.

U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan says Julie Ann Dahlquist claimed to have cancer but no medical insurance or money for treatment. The victim wrote checks to Dahlquist for as much as $9,000 three times a month to pay for the non-existent treatment.

The federal indictment says the victim wrote 190 checks between May 2009 and September 2012 totaling over $400,000. Dahlquist allegedly used the money for gambling and other expenses.

Along with the wire fraud charge, Dahlquist is also charged with Social Security fraud for hiding the $400,000 she defrauded out of the victim to collect Supplemental Security Income benefits . She also failed to disclose another $100,000 in gambling winnings.

The indictment says that additional income would have disqualified her from collecting benefits. Dahlquist faces up to 20 years in prison for the wire fraud charge, and an additional five years for Social Security fraud.

Tonight on T.S. Radio: Elder Abuse Thriving in Washington Probate Courts

March 24, 2013

Beverly Newman, Elder Advocate, Florida, will co-host this show.

Our guest this evening is Bill Sheidler from Washington state. Bill has been the victim of corrupt courts and attorneys who have reached the status of virtually “untouchable”.

On his website, which is currently under construction,
http://www.corruptwa.com Bill is beginning the documentation of all the players. Who is untouchable? Who is making money through human trafficking? How is this affecting future cases?

For example: Assume a disabled person is stripped of his property under color of law. The person cannot afford an attorney and goes to court under represented. The case is decided against this disabled person; and may establish a precedent. NOW this case (this precedent) is fodder for going after another persons property.

BY FIRST going after the property of the weak, old, disabled so as to establish the ‘common law’ it sets the stage for later going after the property of the “somewhat stronger” citizen.

It is the transfer of property from citizens to government by ONE CASE AT A TIME.

THIS is why the issues which you, me and many others have taken a stand against NEEDS TO GET THE ATTENTION of our citizens.

One day it will be their property that is taken and the “common law” will have been well established to allow government to walk in and take what they want.

Woman Charged With Stealing $423K From Elderly Uncle

March 21, 2013

A woman is in jail after allegedly stealing more than $420,000 from her 96-year-old uncle while he suffered from Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office charged Betsey Cammon, 54, with 34 counts of theft, a crime she initially blamed on threats and extortion from an unknown person.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, Cammon was given power of attorney for her uncle in 1998. But, that would only go into effect once he was no longer able to make his own decisions regarding his financial affairs.

In May 2007, Cammon was added to her uncle’s bank accounts. He was admitted to a nursing home two years later.

In March 2009, Cammon’s power of attorney was finally activated when a doctor found her uncle could no longer manage his affairs. At that point, Cammon had already withdrawn nearly $200,000 from his bank accounts, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.

Cammon failed to pay her uncle’s nursing home bill in 2010. Rainier Guardianship Services took over guardianship of Cammon’s uncle in May of that year and needed to liquidate his assets to pay his living expenses because his accounts had been almost completed depleted, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.

Cammon’s uncle died four months later, and his nephew was appointed as his personal representative, finding a number of discrepancies in his uncle’s accounts.

Woman charged with stealing $423,000 from elderly uncle

March 16, 2013

TACOMA, Wash. — A woman is in jail after allegedly stealing more than $420,000 from her 96-year-old uncle while he suffered from Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office charged Betsey Cammon, 54, with 34 counts of theft, a crime she initially blamed on threats and extortion from an unknown person.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, Cammon was given power of attorney for her uncle in 1998. But, that would only go into effect once he was no longer able to make his own decisions regarding his financial affairs.

Rainier Guardianship Services took over guardianship of Cammon’s uncle in May of that year and needed to liquidate his assets to pay his living expenses because his accounts had been almost completed depleted, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.

Cammon’s uncle died four months later, and his nephew was appointed as his personal representative, finding a number of discrepancies in his uncle’s accounts.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, Cammon promised to produce information and an explanation for the missing funds. She didn’t, later claiming she was threatened and extorted for the money by an unknown person.

A family member finally reported the situation to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office in April 2012. According to the Prosecutor’s Office, an investigation showed Cammon withdrew $423,120.75 from her uncle’s accounts and gifted another $49,450 to her friends.

She used some of the money to pay property taxes on two homes she owns with her boyfriend, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.

Cammon is being held on $25,000 bail and may still face additional charges.

“Our Elder Fraud team vigorously prosecutes cases of elder fraud and theft,” Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said in a press release. “We encourage family and friends of elder victims to come forward and report these crimes against some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”

Ex-Lakewood broker gets 5 years for theft from an elderly client

January 25, 2013

A former Lakewood stockbroker who federal prosecutors called “arrogant and shameless” was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma to five years in prison for bilking an elderly client out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Michael D. Montgomery, 44, also must pay yet-to-be-determined restitution to the estate of the man he defrauded. That man died in 2006 at age 90.

Prosecutors said Montgomery, who now calls Colorado home, served as the man’s financial adviser and then became trustee of the man’s revocable living trust. He used his positions to make loans to himself from the man’s accounts, many of which he failed to repay.

They also said he billed the estate for hours he never worked.

Prosecutors said Montgomery purloined $1.2 million from the man and his estate. His defense attorney, Emily Gause of Seattle, claims the loss was less than $900,000.

He pleaded guilty in June to wire fraud and filing a false tax return for failing to report the income.

Prosecutors said Montgomery used the stolen money to finance a high-flying lifestyle in Aspen, Colo., where he trained to be an elite triathlete. The victim’s heirs were left with nearly nothing.

Kent judge says ethics chief sabotaged Wulle’s re-election bid

January 15, 2013


A Kent-area judge disciplined in 2010 for trying to influence the Amanda Knox murder trial in Italy has accused the head of a state judicial ethics agency of misconduct, including sabotaging Clark County Judge John Wulle’s re-election bid.

In a Jan. 3 letter to the Washington Supreme Court, King County Superior Court Judge Michael Heavey accused Reiko Callner of violating her role as executive director of the Washington Commission on Judicial Conduct by spearheading an investigation of Wulle and then manipulating the media to help shatter Wulle’s re-election bid.

He said the behavior is part of pattern of Callner’s interference in due process for judges accused of misconduct.

“Commission powers have been usurped by Ms. Callner and have been wrongfully used to campaign against a sitting judge running for re-election,” Heavey wrote. “The members of the commission have acquiesced in this highly unprofessional action.”

Callner denied the accusations and said they appeared to be retaliation for the commission’s September 2010 discipline of him. Heavey was admonished for using his office to advocate for Knox, his daughter’s friend. He sent letters on Knox’s behalf written on his court stationery to judges in Italy and other officials, according to commission documents.

“Judge Heavey is on a kind of personal campaign against me,” Callner said Thursday in a phone interview with The Columbian.

In a telephone interview Thursday, Wulle said he wasn’t consulted about the complaint, but Heavey had asked his attorney, Josephine Townsend, about his case.

As executive director, Callner is not allowed to initiate investigations against judges. Only the commission — a panel of 11 members charged with investigating complaints against other judges — may initiate an investigation, and they must vote to do so. Judges, attorneys and citizens make up the panel.

Tonight on T.S. Radio: Janet O’Brien on Elder Exploitation in Washington State

January 6, 2013

Janet O’Brien is a Seattle based private investigator who has worked on numerous cases of elder abuse at the hands of professionals and occasionally family members who operate in collusion with probate courts to loot the estates of the elderly who committed what must be the new crime of [aging with assets].

Janet hosts her own cable TV program “Public Interest Issues”  on the Seattle Community Media channel in Washington state where she highlights these issues.

Of special interest to Ms. OBrien was the strange case of Dorothy Grega.  O’Brien took this case all the way to the Supreme Court. This case was accepted for Conference of September 24th, 2012 for the United States Supreme Court consideration under the Case Obrien v. Kirley Washington State case on the docket for Sept 24 for Conference {case number is 11-1489}.  While the Supreme Court reviewed the case they chose not to hear it, treating as they have many other cases presented for their consideration on the issue of predatory fiduciary’s and the complicity of corrupt probate courts in facilitating the kidnaping, isolation and forced medicating of elderly individuals who have large estates which are then looted by the predators.  They found it interesting but not worthy of their time.

Robert Hamlin was also a victim of a guardianship case in Washington State and Janet will be talking at length about this case.

Please join us for what will be a very interesting broadcast detailing what one woman has done in her efforts to stop what can be nothing other than a national disgrace.  To call what is happening to our seniors “abuse” is an understatement.  This is human trafficking for profit at its worst.
