Taxpayer money used to abuse families and children

Subject : Rockville Judge Kaplan shoots for $100,000 in fraud and child abuse

Rockville [Connecticut] family court has just ordered a third evaluation at a cost of $10,000 in State Funds.

Administrative Judge of Rockville court, Jonathan Kaplan, has exceeded $60,000 in taxpayers money in the family case of Chris Kennedy. The State has been funding a Guardian Ad Litem and two attorneys for the children (one Kaplan's former law clerk) for the past four years to keep the Kennedy Children fatherless. A family evaluation, paid by the state was ignored, stating a change from 50/50 shared parenting would harm the children, mom still got sole custody. A psychological study found no issues at a cost of $10,000 but the report was never submitted to the court.

The one recommendation, that the children are suffering severe emotional harm and should be spared further involvement was ignored as the court hired two attorneys for additional interrogation of the children. The children are brought to tears at each session, asking to see their father, but the questioning continues.

With no facts or findings, no allegations of abuse or risk to the children, Rockville court terminated open contact with the father and his children. He is limited to 1 hour a week with his daughters, supervised, at a cost of $45/hr for the past 1-1/2 years. (Kaplan's Law Partner represents the facility) Last week the court reviewed increasing the cost to $75/hr and ordered another evaluation of the family, more trauma for children and an additional $10,000 to the state.

The guardian openly testifies that the evaluations and supervised visits are intrusive and harmful to the children, that one hour a week does not provide for a healthy relationship with father and children, but still recommends they continue (and her fourth year of state funded income)

Complaints against the judge to the JRC are ordered sealed from the public and added to the family court folder. So much for a transparent court. Documents are added and removed from the court folder on a whim without a hearing.

Chris Kennedy

Police Vendettas

Subject: Police acting out on Vendettas

Dear Connecticut State Police Commissioner John A. Danaher III

If a citizen refused to carry on a romantic relationship with a Connecticut State Police Officer, their friend, or family, should the Connecticut State Police then gang up on the individual to retaliate, maliciously investigating, threatening, stalking, arresting, falsifying police reports, committing perjury, rigging a trial, and making a woman or a man lose their family, job, home, and everything they have ever worked for being railroaded to prison? I am asking that the victims of this abuse have their records expunged and be considered for compensation.

I believe I became a target of the Connecticut State Police on former Commissioner Henry Lee’s orders. I had proposed laws to legislators police did not like, I had been writing in newspapers in support of the Connecticut Sheriff system at a time Connecticut State Police were out to arrest and discredit as many Sheriffs a possible over a political struggle over power and funding, and I wanted to reduce the number of youthful offenders that became adult criminals. Without youthful offenders becoming adult criminals, police funding could be decreased as less arrests and processing would be done, police would have less power, and their numbers could be reduced.

Unknowingly I could have become Connecticut State Police, “Enemy Number One”.

Soon after writing letters to the editor supporting the Sheriffs in Connecticut printed in newspapers, Barbara Sattal pursued me to date her. I later found out that she was a Connecticut State Police operative offered $10,000 to set me up for a DUI, where drugs would be planted on me, and I would be beaten up by officers, and charged with assaulting officers and a whole laundry list of offences, to ensure I was railroaded to prison for possibly a decade or more to shut me up.

Sattal confessed to me, and said she had left her husband for me. When we started “dating”, I didn’t know she was married. She told me that the Stafford Building Inspector had been contacted by police officers to toast me. She said she could head that off and take care of stopping the other plans to ruin me financially, discredit me, call off the building inspector, and police plans to railroad me to prison. I finally actually got courteous Connecticut State Police protection and service while “dating” Barbara. Officers would wave when they saw me driving.

I dumped Sattal as I didn’t want a cheating, lying, manipulating, and possibly very dangerous woman close to me. She told me that if I did not continue dating her that I would lose everything and end up in prison. She told me, she could protect me from the Connecticut State Police or have them make sure I dated no one else and I would lose everything if I did not take her back. I refused to see her and she stalked me for over 2 years. Sattal allegedly called then LT Davoren of Troop C, Connecticut State Police, “Dad”. That I had upset the LT and that I was really going to get it, and were bragging around town that “Big Mouth is going to be taught a lesson.

A woman I dated after Barbara, claimed that she was pulled over by Connecticut State Police just outside of my home, found out not to be wearing underwear, was sexually assaulted by police, and told not to date me anymore. She claimed that she was followed all the way home, about an hour, pulled over again, groped, had officer fingers stuck in her and she was threatened with arrest if she reported the incident or continued dating me.

I was being followed around daily by Connecticut State Police Officers. I was being threatened by officers. People that I worked for and wherever I went, people noticed I had a shadow and were afraid to associate with me. I lived in a state of fear, rented cars, went out socially out of state, and mostly hid inside my home.

I found out from drug dealers, prostitutes, and other common criminal parasites that I could not discourage from being on or near my property, told me that police had given them incentives to try and set me up for an arrest. Are the Connecticut State Police out to encourage crime, or to protect and serve taxpayers?

I had fixed up boarded up rental properties in Stafford, Connecticut, and had built up a small business over 20 years. Are police out to ruin citizens that pay taxes, spent 100's of thousands of dollars buying and fixing up real estate, operate a business, and honestly and ethically bring up their children as an asset to society?

I was repeatedly attacked, stalked, and threatened by a police informant, Brian Caldwell, who is also a violent felon, burglar, alcoholic, and drug abuser. Police arrested me after Brian Caldwell jumped me, beat me, and threatened to cut off my penis if I did not give him my wallet. I pepper sprayed him. Troopers Amaral and Langlois refused to take my complaint against Caldwell, refusing to arrest Caldwell, refused to listen to the death threats Caldwell made on tenant’s answering machine, my voicemail, and to tenants verbally before attacking me. Langlois and Amaral committed perjury in a rigged trial claiming I never requested to make a complaint against Caldwell. Connecticut State Police Officers were bragging around town that, “Big Mouth is going to prison” before I even went to trial.

A legislative aid to former Representative Mordasky, told me that police liaison to legislators that tell legislators what laws they can and cannot propose as legislation, told me I should leave Connecticut as the head of the State Police wanted to make sure I was toasted and taught a lesson. So, I knew that it was all a big fix.

Judge Jonathan Kaplan told me before trial that I was guilty and going to prison before trial for having pepper sprayed Caldwell in self-defense. I was charged with breach of peace and assault 3rd which can also be loud yelling. A worker for police was not struck out as a juror and became jury foreman. The jury was shown a tape of how to find me guilty, but nothing about reasonable doubt or finding me innocent. Attorney Michael H. Agranoff told me that Kaplan had threatened him with grave consequences if he disputed Connecticut State Police perjury or hampered prosecution. Agranoff then acted as a second prosecutor for his more than $17,000 fee. Kaplan wouldn’t let me defend myself when Agranoff refused to go to the front of the court room, and point out on the diagram, as the only witness against me was a tenant that I was evicting that allowed Caldwell to stay in the apartment so he could jump me when I got home, claimed to have seen me attacked from her apartment in the side driveway. She committed perjury and made a false statement to police as no one can see through a house over a 100 feet in the dark.

I knew I was going to prison, so the day before I was to be sentenced, I sent an email to former Police Commissioner Arthur L. Spada asking him to take the US Department of Justice Webpage, “Community Policing, COPS” off the official CPS website citing policing weren’t being followed. I indicated to Spada in the email that I would be sending hard copy of the email to the USDOJ.

The reason I did this, it that I wanted to “mark” the trial transcripts to prove that I was railroaded to prison and that Judge Jonathan Kaplan and Arthur L. Spada acted in illegal collusion. I figured if Kaplan blew up at me and screamed at me for being the victim of a strong armed robbery, had my life threatened, and been repeatedly assaulted, and I ended an attack with pepper spray in my own dark driveway, I could later prove the bogus trial and false arrest.

Will you consider looking into my case to expunge my bogus record so I can go on with my life. Will you consider offering me compensation for my pain and suffering.

My daughter and most of my family have disowned me. I lost everything I had ever worked for and can’t get most employment and lodging as I have a prison and criminal record. Why should I get a life sentence because police illegally acted out on a personal vendetta?

If this is how Connecticut State Troopers can act, should they be called “police” and “law enforcement”?

Got Ethics, Official Connecticut?

June 11, 2007

To whom it may concern on the Advisory Commission on Wrongful Convictions:

I believed I was falsely arrested and imprisoned for political and official retaliatory reasons and ask that my criminal record be expunged.

I bought a dilapidated house in Stafford Springs, CT, at a HUD auction, in the mid 1990's. I completely fixed it up, inside and out, and had a problem with teens, vandals, and drug dealers taking over my yard and driveway at 3 Brown Ave. Ext, and became a co-founder of the Crime Watch in Stafford.. Officer Prochaska threatened me with arrest if I proposed legislation allowing police officers to write teens detentions to be served year round at schools for simple violations, to work like an insurance point system where reform school or confinement could be obtained from racking up too many points. I proposed the law to elected officials, anyway, despite Prochaska’s insistence that he would not be involved with youth crime and that I would be arrested if I did not shut my mouth.

After my then wife and I came back from months of travel in Europe, seeing many countries, I happened upon Peter Panciera and two of his powdered cocaine customers, back in the US, Stafford Springs, CT.. Panciera then beat me and bit into my ear. Panciera fled the scene at the customers’ insistance saying Peter was “holding”. I found who Panciera was a week later and notified police. Police refused to arrest Panciera and Prochaska arrested me 6 weeks later at my home in front of my family and neighbors after I insisted that Panciera be tested for AIDS and Hepatitis as he had chewed into my ear. I refused to get a lawyer and told Beth Leming the prosecutor that I would ask that the 911 tape be played and that Peter Panciera stand next to me as he outweighed me by about 100 pounds and was about 6 inches taller. I told he, “I would say would you attack him if you were me?” I asked Leming why was I arrested if he beat me and then bit me. She reluctantly agreed to nolle the charges if I got LT Trapp’s ok. LT Trapp told me I wasn’t allowed in downtown Stafford Springs unless I was an alcoholic or drug user. I agreed not to go downtown for a year and charges of Assault 3rd and Breach of Peace were nolled.

I then sold my house and bought boarded up rental properties in Stafford Springs. The Connecticut State Police had told me I was “kicked out” of Connecticut and if I did not leave the State of Connecticut that I would be arrested. They were allowing drugs to be sold by teens and others to set up two bar owners for having their businesses closed because they were in competition with an alleged organized crime figures involved in running Lark’s Café. I was told that interfering with drug dealers and other criminals was interfering with police and that if I insisted that the criminals that were using my front yard as a toilet, teens for drinking parting, and a 24 hour drug drive-thru that I would be arrested not them.

I proposed Civilian Oversight of Police, tried to have Judge Jonathan Kaplan removed for bias in civil cases brought on by landlords and the self-employed. And tried to have prosecutor Keith Courier removed for telling me that if I brought eviction against prostitute Lana Thompson for moving in my apartments without my permission, expecting to live for free, that I would be arrested and prosecuted by him to the fullest. I evicted Lana Thompson.

Connecticut State Police then put the word out that they wanted an excuse to arrest me, and that I could be assaulted and police would owe the informant or other criminal a favor.

Troopers would follow me to work and to building supply stores in pairs when I left in the morning. They would get out and follow me into where I had my vehicles worked on etc. I was told I better leave Connecticut, “Or Else”.

Felon, alcoholic, drug abuser, Brian Caldwell then began trying to catch me in my driveway getting from my work van to my backdoor. He would beat on my door sometimes after midnight waking up my neighbors and tenants telling me he would cut my penis off if he caught me out in my yard. This went on for weeks. Police let me know if I complained to them about anything that I would be arrested and go to prison if I did not shut my “Big Mouth” and leave Connecticut.

Brian Caldwell jumped me about at about almost midnight on 10-11-01, after he had left a message on one tenant’s answering machine telling her that he was going to kill me when I got home. And another tenant was told that she would have another landlord as he was going to kill me when I got home. Troopers Amaral and Langlois refused to listen to the answering machine message, to interview my tenants, and refused to take my complaint against Caldwell and then committed perjury at trial docket # docket # CR01-0074672, saying I never asked to make a complaint against Caldwell. Only I was arrested for Breach of Peace and Assault 3rd.

Police were bragging around town that I would be going to prison before there was a trial. I told State Senator Tony Guglielmo. Caldwell attacked me in a crowded restaurant and tried to, or did, attack me 7 more times after the initial time he jumped me. I called State Senator Tony Guglielmo after each attack, or attempted attack.

Prosecutor Keith Courier told me that I had to plead guilty and serve a year and half in prison, no deals, and no AR, even though I had no criminal record, so I was forced to go to trial. Judge Jonathan Kaplan refused to take himself off the case even though we had past animosity, that I had written a letter to the court with the docket # Hass vs. Erickson claiming Kaplan was ok with insurance fraud and didn’t care about justice. I was trying to have Kaplan removed for 2 years for his bias and antics BEFORE I was attacked on my property. Before trial Kaplan told me I was guilty and going to prison.

Attorney Michael H. Agranoff told me after he had already purposely helped set me for prison that Judge Kaplan had told him that he was not allowed to dispute Connecticut State Police perjury or any prosecution assertions. Agranoff refused to call any witness to my being attacked on my property. A police worker was allowed to be on the jury, to be jury foreman, against my right to strike a juror. A VHS tape was shown to the jury on how to find me guilty, but nothing about innocence or reasonable doubt was in that tape. That particular tape was later thrown out by the judiciary for being unfair, possibly tampering with juries.

A tenant that I was evicting that had been harboring Brian Caldwell so he could attack me, claimed she saw me attack Caldwell from her apartment in the dark. There was a diagram in front of the court that showed my properties. Agranoff refused to point out on the diagram that there was a house between her apartment and where I was attacked therefore she was committing perjury. Since Agranoff had refused to defend me for his over $17,000 fee, I asked that I be allowed to go to the diagram and point out that the tenant that had threatened me with retaliation for evicting her was lying and could not see through a house in the dark and therefore was lying. Judge Kaplan refused to allow me to make a statement in my defense to the jury.

Brian Caldwell admitted stalking me, before and after the incident, and in threatening my life before demanding money on the stand under oath. Shouldn’t a judge know that Caldwell was guilty of stalking, threatening, breach of peace, and attempted robbery?

I knew that the trial was fixed. So I emailed Police Commissioner Arthur L. Spada an email of the text I had mailed to the US Department of Justice regarding asking that the USDOJ webpage be removed from the Connecticut State Police website citing that policies were not being followed. I knew that if Judge Kaplan yelled at me like I was a baby raper the next day at sentencing I could later prove illegal collusion between former Rockville Judge Athur L. Spada with Rockville Judge Jonathan Kaplan in fixing my case.

Former Representative Mordasky’s aid implied that the police liaison to legislators told her that I would be retaliated by police at the orders of Spada for what I wrote in newspapers, for legislation I proposed, and for looking to sue police.

Attorney Agranoff has refused to supply the fee agreement contract, my legal file, and refused to appeal my case and did not file a reason he did not with the court. I was sentence to a year in prison, 3 year probation, the maximum fine, paying Caldwell restitution, anger management, drug and alcohol classes even though there is no history or arrests for drugs or alcohol, and to see a shrink two times a week as Kaplan thinks that I am mentally unstable for having pepper sprayed a mugger fearing for my life.

I did nothing wrong, was not a threat to society, and can’t “re-offend” and don’t need to be taught a lesson if I wasn’t looking for trouble the night I was jumped, unlike the violent felon that is a menace to society. Is this how courts and law enforcement in Connecticut should operate?

Is official, judicial, prosecutorial, police, and attorney misconduct not punishable if there is illegal collusion to cover up official crimes, perjury, and obstruction of justice if it is done in retaliation against a citizen that has lodged complaints?

If not please expunge my record so I can earn a living and get a decent apartment in my name. Please also review my trial transcripts for judicial and ethics purposes.

Please assist me in finally obtaining justice.

Thank you,

Police don't want prisoner beatings to be videotaped

Judiciary Committee - April 10, 2007 - S.B. No. 149 - H.B. No. 7364

Testimony of the Division of Criminal Justice [link]

In Opposition to:



Presented by Chief State’s Attorney Kevin T. Kane
Joint Committee on Judiciary – April 10, 2007

The Division of Criminal Justice respectfully, but strongly, recommends that the Committee reject both S.B. No. 149, An Act Concerning the Videotaping of Custodial Interrogations, and H.B. No. 7364, An Act Concerning Electronic Recording of Confessions. We would further recommend that the Committee give its Joint Favorable Report to substitute language to either of these bills to provide funding for a pilot program for the recording of confessions in major felony investigations.

It has now been two years since the Division of Criminal Justice first reported to the Judiciary Committee that the law enforcement community was studying the issue of electronic recording of confessions. This has not been a unilateral examination by the Division of Criminal Justice, but rather an effort encompassing all elements of the law enforcement community. The Connecticut Police Chiefs Association, the Connecticut State Police, the State’s Attorneys and representatives of the Police Officer Standards and Training Council (POST Connecticut Police Academy) and Connecticut State Police Academy have been involved throughout the process. Last year, we were pleased to tell the Committee that we had reached agreement in principle within the Connecticut law enforcement community to move forward with the pilot program, provided the necessary funding for such a program was appropriated.

Despite initial indications that an appropriation might be forthcoming, the final state budget provided no funding whatsoever for the pilot program. Still believing the funding will be forthcoming, the Division of Criminal Justice has focused its efforts over the past year to working with the law enforcement community to further refine what such a program would entail. We are again prepared to move forward with this program with the same caveat as last year – as long as the funding that is necessary to its establishment and implementation is provided.

That being said, the Division believes it is not only appropriate but incumbent upon us to once again state for the record the reasons for our opposition to the underlying bills as they are now written. Most obvious is the issue of funding. These bills impose a major new mandate on local police departments with no funding with which to carry it out. There are no provisions for training officers to conduct recorded interrogations and no funding to pay for such training to say nothing of paying for the equipment and facilities needed for recording.

Second, the law enforcement community strongly opposes any legislation that would mandate law enforcement practice. Absent the existence of a pattern of abuse interrogations or false confessions that requires action by the courts or the Legislature, law enforcement techniques should be left to the discretion of law enforcement. There is no such pattern at this time in Connecticut. Our efforts over the past two years to develop a pilot program underscore our commitment to examine and enact where appropriate better police practices.

But that is not what these bills are really all about. They are not about better police practices and procedures. Rather, both bills represent an attempt to have written into the law a jury instruction that the courts have consistently rejected. This is an attempt to get from the Legislature -- without showing a need – a jury instruction that has been rejected by the courts. In State v. James (237 Conn. 390, 428-34 (1996), our Connecticut Supreme Court directly addressed the question of recorded interrogations. The defendant in that case, relying on the Connecticut Constitution, argued that he was denied due process because his interrogation was not recorded. Specifically, James argued that Article First, Section Eight requires the police, when feasible, to record electronically confessions, interrogations, and advisements or Miranda rights that occur in places of detention in order for such a confession to be admissible at trial.

The Supreme Court stated:

"Rather than establishing per se rules of corroboration for the admissibility of confessions, we consistently have allowed the trier of fact to consider the circumstances of the confession, including any lack of corroboration, in determining the weight, if any, to be afforded that particular piece of evidence."

In the nine years since James, our Supreme Court has not even hinted that there is a problem. In fact, not even in State v. LaPointe (237 Conn. 694, 735 (1996), often cited as the cause celebre by the proponents of recorded interrogations, did the court hold that due process required the recording of interrogations. The courts have generally agreed that while the recording of interrogations might be a desirable investigative practice and that it is to be encouraged, such recording is not a requirement under due process.

Even in other states where recorded confessions are required, the rule is not absolute. In Minnesota, for example, the courts have exercised their supervisory authority in this area, and although advancing the practice of recording interrogations, have declined to give the practice constitutional standing. The Minnesota Supreme Court noted that recording of interrogations "would, in many cases, be a helpful tool in evaluating the voluntariness of a confession." But the Court further stated, "We also agree that recording would not in all circumstances be a foolproof mechanism for accurately resolving disputes between police and the accused." The Court also would not accept the defendant’s premise that allowing the trial court to resolve the factual issues is unacceptable under due process standards.

While it is the consensus of the law enforcement community to engage in a pilot program there are still many who share a number of valid concerns as to the potential for detrimental effects on the ability to investigate criminal activity. We have developed a plan for a pilot program and are ready to proceed with a program in several locations if funding is provided to enable the purchase of equipment, properly equip interview rooms, provide training for police officers, and to cover other costs. We believe that the pilot program we are prepared to establish will address these concerns in a meaningful way.

Accordingly, it is the feeling of the Division of Criminal Justice and our Connecticut law enforcement community that to examine this issue we should proceed with caution by way of a pilot program with adequate funding. Accordingly, we would ask the Committee to reject S.B. No. 149 and H.B. No. 7364 and give your Joint Favorable Substitute Report to language providing for an adequately funded pilot program. The Division would be happy to provide any additional information the Committee might require or to answer any questions that you might have. Thank you.

How courts really work?:

Judge who fixed divorce cases sent to prison

POSTED: 12:26 p.m. EDT, June 6, 2007

Story Highlights

- Former Brooklyn state Supreme Court Justice Gerald Garson sentenced to prison
- Garson fixed divorce cases in exchange for gifts
- Gifts included cigars, cash
- Hidden camera in chambers recorded bribes

NEW YORK (AP) -- An ex-judge who accepted expensive gifts in exchange for helping fix divorce cases and a former state lawmaker convicted in a scheme to shake down a judicial candidate were sentenced to prison Tuesday.

Former Brooklyn state Supreme Court Justice Gerald Garson, 74, was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.

Garson, 74, wept as he asked for leniency, claiming the cigars, cash and other gifts never influenced his decisions. But he also admitted that when he saw hidden-camera videos of his shady dealings in chambers, "I was appalled, embarrassed and ashamed of my demeanor."

Garson was convicted of receiving bribes and accepting rewards for official misconduct but acquitted on four lesser counts.

The sentencing judge had no sympathy for him.

"You abdicated your own moral fiber," Justice Jeffrey Berry said before imposing the sentence. "What you brought upon yourself is terrible."

Earlier in the day, former state assemblyman Clarence Norman Jr. surrendered in the same Brooklyn courtroom to begin serving a two-to-six-year term.

The Garson case arose from a broader investigation into allegations that civil judgeships were being bought and sold for up to $50,000.

Hard evidence of such brokering never materialized, but the scandal did bring down Norman, the longtime head of the Brooklyn Democratic Party, and resulted in convictions of courthouse staff.

Though already sentenced, Norman had been free on bail pending his appeal on convictions for grand larceny and other charges.

A civil court candidate testified at Norman's trial earlier this year that Norman threatened to pull his party's support in 2002 unless she paid his favored consultant thousands of dollars.

Beforehand, a jovial Norman had told reporters, "The Lord is with me. My family's with me. I have my health."

Connecticut Corruption Victims need help

Dear Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell and CT Legislature, June 4, 2007

It is no secret that I have been upset about police and other official misconduct and corruption. I am asking you for remedy, as the police only arrest you if you complain, and the courts only further abuse you, if you are complaining about police or the Connecticut judiciary.

What the Connecticut State Police have been getting away with was published in a 168 page official report. Typical Judicial Misconduct is evident by the shenanigans of Chief Justice William Sullivan recently exposed. I am a victim of police and judicial corruption. 2 Troopers committed perjury so that I would be railroaded to prison for being attacked on my own property.

I contacted the US DOJ complaining about former Police Commissioner Arthur L. Spada, and emailed Spada a copy of my complaint, a day before I was to be sentenced in obvious Kangaroo Court proceedings. The next day, Judge Jonathan Kaplan of Rockville entered into an angry tirade, proving to me that Spada illegally colluded with Kaplan to fix my case and railroad me to prison. I could understand Kaplan’s tirades if I was a serial baby rapist/killer, but not for having pepper sprayed a mugger that had threatened to cut off my penis and kill me if I did not give up my wallet in my own dark driveway, returning from work.

The worst that could be said for the event after Brian Caldwell, a violent, substance abusing felon, threatened my life, stalked me, and told my tenants that he intended on killing me, is that we got into an altercation. If the worst could be said that I had an altercation on my property, and he admitted demanding money from me, on the stand, while threatening to kill me, why was I the only one arrested? Why was I put in prison for 2 misdemeanors with no previous record?

If you complain to the Governor’s Office about the head of the Connecticut State Police or about the police, the Commissioner of the Connecticut State Police is notified. He was and I immediately had Troopers following me around, telling me to shut up, and to leave the State, “Or Else”, before my false arrest. If you are put on the Connecticut State Police “Enemies List”, police will continue to hound you until you are arrested, terrorized, ruined, dismantled, and in prison.

I fixed up boarded up Connecticut rental properties and had built up a small business over 2 decades. I had a good relationship with my National Honor Society daughter. Our home and interaction, dog, peace, liberty, and well being has been robbed from us, since she was 14. She is now 20. I’m estranged from my family, labeled an ex-prisoner/ex-convict for having pepper sprayed a man that was willing to threaten my life, beat me, and try to kill me for my wallet. Those that cause this human misery and economic damage to Connecticut and all citizens of the nation should be punished, not me and my family. Please review my trial transcripts to punish the guilty, expunge my record, and offer me and my family compensation for our suffering. Please pardon me and/or enact legislation. More information:

I was fired as a first responder in natural disasters because of my bogus record. I wish to get my job back and be able to get a place to live in my own name. Shouldn’t I be able to re-earn my retirement and be able to get a place to live? Is that too much to ask? Should a victim of Connecticut corruption get a live sentence for being inconvenient and “mouthy”?

Thank you, Steven G. Erickson, 972 Putney Rd # 156, Brattleboro, Vermont 05301
