Alleging Religious Bias by Federal Judge & Prosecutor, Church Asks 10th Circuit to Unseal Records

LogoAfter serving 3 years of an 11-year prison sentence, convicted felon Gary Walker decided he'd had enough of the prison life and filed a motion and affidavit requesting release on the basis that he was not responsible for his actions because he was under a religious spell of his mother-in-law pastor, Rose M. Banks of the Colorado Springs Fellowship Church (CSFC). Walker also claimed that a junior attorney and close friend from CSFC (Gwendolyn Lawson), one of two attorneys on his legal team, was also under the religious control of Pastor Banks which caused a conflict of interest representing him and four other defendants during sentencing.

BOP Using Inmate Financial Responsibility Program as a Racket to Steal Money from Inmate Families

LogoOn average inmates at the federal prison camp in Florence, Colorado earn an average slave wage of $10 dollars per month which makes it impossible for them to pay things like court costs and restitution or use commissary, phone or email services, all of which are services the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) provides to inmates at a cost.

BOP Continues Its Abuse of Visiting Families of Inmates at Florence Federal Prison Camp

LogoOn July 1, 2018, the federal prison camp in Florence, Colorado hurt families by eliminating three-hour Friday evening visits which has been in existence for decades and has cited no reason for doing so. Now, prison management, who claims they are financially and operationally constrained by staffing shortages, are taking more time from visiting families and children by subjecting them to intrusive and intimidating search procedures.

Colorado Case Underscores Why NFL Athletes Should Recommend Pardons to Trump

LogoPresident Trump recently told NFL players who are deeply-troubled about racial injustice in the criminal justice system to contact him about federal cases where someone was wrongly convicted or done wrong by the system and he will pardon or commute their sentence. Advocacy organization A Just Cause hopes for the sake of those who have been wrongly imprisoned and their suffering families, NFL players will take the President up on his offer.

Advocacy Organization Praises Trump's Independent Clemency Evaluation Process

LogoAdvocacy organization A Just Cause praises President Trump for strictly following the Constitution by independently granting clemency without DOJ intervention. When the Constitution was created and gave the President sole pardoning power there was no DOJ and President Trump should not be criticized for granting clemency without DOJ input.

Trump Pardon Sought After White House Email Suggests Obama Disregarded Complaint of DOJ Misconduct by Federal Appeals Judge

LogoIt seems unlikely that President Barack Obama would ignore a personal letter emailed to him from prominent former federal appeals judge H. Lee Sarokin asking him to grant clemency to African-American technology executives (the "IRP6") because DOJ prosecutors and a federal judge engaged in misconduct to obtain an unconstitutional conviction. A former federal judge sending a letter to a sitting U.S. President on behalf of criminal defendants he hasn't met is unprecedented and is not something that happens every day. In fact, it's probably never happened in U.S. history which means Judge Sarokin wouldn't risk his reputation to expose the misconduct if he didn't have proof it occurred. Some of the many congressmen who have reviewed the credible evidence of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct told advocacy organization A Just Cause that Obama couldn't have possibly known, but the fact is, Special Assistant to President Obama and Associate Counsel Joshua Friedman confirmed in a November 11, 2015 email he received Sarokin's letter and forwarded the letter to the DOJ Pardon Attorney (See email at bit.ly/2LoQNxv).

Impeachment Sought Against Colorado Federal Judge for Intentionally Violating Federal Laws

LogoWhen Colorado federal judge Christine M. Arguello retaliated and filed a vindictive complaint against a Colorado attorney she had no idea the results of the investigation would implicate her in violating federal laws in a Colorado criminal case she presided over (Dist. Colo. case nos. 09-cr-00266-CMA and 09-cr-00266-CMA-3).

Timeline Released in IRP6 Case Supports Allegations That Mueller's FBI Raided Colorado Company to Steal Software

LogoAdvocacy organization A Just Cause (AJC) has released a timeline of events showing that a February 9, 2005 FBI raid on Colorado Springs company IRP Solutions (and subsequent wrongful prosecution and conviction its executives) was possibly done for the sole purpose of stealing their innovative "Case Investigative Life Cycle or CILC (pronounced "silk") software.

Was Mueller Aware of Colorado-Based FBI Agents Attempt to Steal Innovative Criminal Investigations Software

LogoMany people may not want to believe the FBI is capable of violating the law, but there is plenty of evidence showing Denver FBI agents and the Colorado U.S. Attorney's Office conspired together (likely on behalf of a competitor) to take down a small Colorado technology company and its executives to steal its valuable criminal investigations software, which threatened to disrupt the status quo of billion dollar defense contractors and system integrators winning post-9/11 federal law enforcement technology modernization contracts. The Denver FBI and Colorado U.S. Attorney's Office would be called upon to manufacture a criminal case to ruin the company and/or steal its software for a competitor who would then sell it to the FBI. The software was called CILC (pronounced "silk"), an acronym for Case Investigative Life Cycle, which was developed by the Colorado Springs-based IRP Solutions Corporation.

President Trump Sought for Pardon of Wrongly Convicted African-American Technology Executives Denied Clemency by Obama

LogoA Just Cause believes President Donald Trump may be the only U.S. president courageous enough to pardon five innocent Colorado software executives (4 black, one white) who were unconstitutionally convicted and imprisoned as a result of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct. President Obama denied clemency to these businessmen after receiving a letter from a former federal appeals judge asking him to grant clemency based on evidence that the businessmen were indicted and imprisoned for "failing to pay corporate debts" and had their constitutional rights violated by the trial judge and prosecutor. In November 2017, four concerned members of Congress sent a joint letter to the Justice Department seeking answers about the civil case being criminalized and "serious" allegations of misconduct and violations of the law by the prosecutor and trial judge. The DOJ has yet to respond, presumably because it's taboo to challenge misconduct by federal judges and prosecutors. According to prominent federal appeals judge Alex Kozinski, it takes a brave and courageous person in the Justice Department or courts to report misconduct or take action to hold them accountable. Another federal appeals judge says federal judges are stubborn and refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoing.
