Let this be a lesson to all federal agencies that harass the innocent.
You can be beaten. You will continue to be beaten, and the innocent will
Phoenix, AZ - And here
comes the “news” out of Arizona... “Arizona
man acquitted in tax case.”
From a 6/24/12 Arizona
Republic newspaper article:
“A U.S. District
Court judge in Phoenix dealt federal prosecutors an unusual blow last week
charges midway through a jury trial
against a man accused of tax evasion.
Roslyn Silver acquitted James Parker of Carefree on eight charges of
ruling that government lawyers failed to make
came after lawyers for the U.S. Attorney's Office rested their case and
asked both sides to explain why the defense should
“This is the
first not guilty on all counts in an American tax case for the year 2012,'
said in a statement last week. They
noted that Parker faced 32 years in prison, if convicted.
is similar to and has the same effect as a not-guilty verdict. Once acquitted,
cannot be retried, even if new evidence
arises in a case.”
What the Arizona Republic's article failed to mention was that James Parker
was represented by none other than preeminent Lawyer Michael Minns, with
Ashley Arnett as co-counsel. They also failed to mention that Parker was
a client of the US~Observer.
The Republic's article
included info stating that James Parker's wife Jacqueline was scheduled
on like charges in July. They didn't mention that
prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the false charges against Mrs. Parker
on Friday June 22, 2012 – instead choosing to re-hash James Parker's
charges which had just been completely dismissed. This is inexcusable and
openly biased reporting! They should have reported that Mrs. Parker had absolutely
nothing to do with James' business dealings and that she was indicted for
the purpose of enabling the government to obtain a plea-bargain from Parker.
Finally, the Arizona
Republic newspaper should have informed their readership that the US~Observer
nationwide that James Parker was innocent
in March of 2012 and that the IRS had conspired with others to falsely charge
and prosecute him…
James Parker has completely
depleted his financial resources defending himself and his wife against
Terrorist Organization in America – the
Internal Revenue Service.
However, using the exposure of the US~Observer and the second-to-none defense
skills of Texas Lawyer Michael Minns, he has now defeated an eight-count
tax evasion indictment. Not many men can make this claim. Most federal prosecutors
succeed in their prosecutions, whether or not the defendant is innocent or
guilty. Both Minns and Arnett remained stoic as Judge Silver dismissed the
case immediately after the prosecution had presented its conspired case.
Cimarron River Ranch owners have told this reporter that a Federal civil
rights lawsuit is now being prepared against the State of Oklahoma and the
Commissioners of the Land Office which will include a count of conspiracy
involving all persons, judges, attorneys and Oklahoma state officials who
acted in collusion in their botched attempt at conversion of real property
- the Cimarron River Ranch.
This case goes to show that with Minns' courtroom brilliance and the US~Observer's
investigative exposure, there is no case that is not winnable.
