Sorry these took so long, there are more but I have to find them, it’s been a good year so far for dismissals.
There are no major charges this time, but all code violations and those are the same as serious code violations. The prosecution is making the same basic claims, such as claiming the laws apply just because you’re physically in Utah (et al). That is the basis of personal and subject matter jurisdiction and the prosecution has no evidence to prove it.
Congrats to everyone for standing up to these predators and getting dismissals. And thanks for providing me with the following proof.
Cheril S. Hardy has gotten a lot of attention on the No State Project recently because she put Bao in jail and forced a psychological evaluation on him for asking a question. Yes, asking a question.
I found more information about this petty tyrant than the previous lawyer in the spotlight, Steven W. Myhre. Ms. Hardy graduated Southern Methodist University 1983, but there is no record of her in the yearbook. I lucked out as someone posted a history of Cheril recently. I have a screencap if the file is deleted. Using that information I was able to find that she was born in Texas in 1950, her full name is Cheril Ruth Stevenson.
It looks like she worked as a probate lawyer before becoming a judge in 1996, I have a screencap below as proof. Unfortunately as judge she is running again unopposed and will be elected again this November.
All Bao did was try to defend himself against charges of violating the code of the government of State of Texas. What prompted the incarceration was when Bao, who had been asking for evidence of jurisdiction, asked Cheril if jurisdiction is an element of the charge.
Bao is not accused of any violent, destructive type of behavior, nor is there any evidence or suggestion he is a danger/threat to himself and others. The man asked a question and Cheril, instead of answering so Bao could be informed (necessary to defending yourself), Cheril imprisoned him without bail and forced him into a psychological examination.
At no point did Cheril even attempt to hold the prosecution to their burden of proof on jurisdiction, she just assumed it for them. She also held their claim as irrefutably true; that’s unfair and a due process violation. It’s proof the game is rigged as she is so biased in favor of the prosecution a fair trial is not possible. How could it be when asking a question is enough for Cheril to imprison you with the added bonus of a psych eval?
Cheril had no evidence of jurisdiction, no evidence even suggesting Bao was psychologically unsound; she imprisoned Bao as a punishment for daring to challenge the prosecution’s claims and the proceedings against him. Cheril is a criminal whose actions clearly demonstrate that she has psychological issues such as anti-social behavior.
If anyone in this situation in the Tarrant County Court is needing psychological evaluation, it is Cheril Hardy. She has a callous disregard for others, does not tolerate challenges and has no problem falsely imprisoning peaceful people. That is not a surprise since a judge is a position of irresponsible power over others.
Instead of the two success stories I reported on, we have three. Congrats to everyone and thanks for sending me the documentary proof below.
The fact more people are taking a stand against these criminals is great; so even if some are not because of the merit of the motion to dismiss, taking a stand has merit.
If the prosecution, which live by convictions, had the evidence to support their claim, they would present it. It would be an easy copy and paste on the way to a rubber-stamp conviction. Instead, they now fairly routinely withdraw their frivolous complaints.
Congrats to Ron for standing up to the predators in Las Vegas, and thanks for sending me the documentary proof.
While I can’t say this dismissal is directly because Ron filed the motion to dismiss and discovery request, this is still significant because it’s more evidence we can get these tickets dismissed. Not only that, we don’t need a lawyer to do so.
Circumstantially though, would the prosecution have withdrawn if not for Ron’s defense? This has to be taken in context though, knowing these predators have no evidence to support their claim their laws apply.
The common arguments/excuses for this lack of evidence is they don’t need to prove it, that prosecutors can argue against us without evidence, while it’s contempt for us if we do. Outside court they argue their laws apply because they put other people in prison, and the laws apply because “they just do.” Yes, they have actually said such things.
Knowing they have no evidence to support their claim, that our position has merit, and a case can be made the dismissal was because of Ron’s defense. We’ll never know for sure, though we can be confident that if attacked, we can successfully defend ourselves.
Congrats to Jordan and Dwight for defending themselves against complaints and getting them dismissed. And thanks for providing the documentary proof. While both are without prejudice, success in court is still a success and worth reporting.
The documents from the video are below.
Both filed the motion to dismiss and discovery request I have available. The motion is based on the prosecution’s lack of evidence to support their claims of jurisdiction and a valid cause of action.
