Yeah, that was me man. I apologize that things turned out the way they did. He screwed me too. Please believe that I would never work for someone who does people like that.

Anybody going to go to court tomorrow? He's due to be there at 1:30 PM Div 5 Boone Co, Judge Bryson. I can't make it tomorrow, hope someone will be there to find out what happens. Make sure you call the Clerks office before you head down to make sure he hasn't weaseled his way in to another continuance, so you don't waste time. Will try my best to make further court dates. This is only a cousel status hearing, don't expect any verdict or decisions to be rendered.

If you go to: https://www.courts.mo.gov/casenet/base/welcom...

And got to the 13th court system you can type in Jeremy Johnson and track his court dates! Looks like he didn't show for his last one and they revoked his bond.. He's digging himself a whole..
I hope all you guys get your money from him.

Yes, what R R Car Audio says is true, Jeremy did not show for his last court date. They have added an additional $1000- cash bond and a bond forfeiture hearing is scheduled for 11/12/2010 @ 1:30p. A warrant has been issued for him, so if you see him, just let cops know. I noted in the docket records that a letter was given to the prosecutor and to the defendent. It was referred to in the docket as RS letter. Interestingly enough those are my initials, so I am hoping that was the letter that I sent to the judge asking him to consider Jeremy's treatment of me when determining his sentence. Below is a copy of the letter. I have chosen to remain anonymous but thought I would post this in case any of you still want to write the judge:

Re: State v Jeremy Charles Johnson
case # 09BA-CR05987

The Honorable Larry Bryson
Boone County Courthouse
705 E. Walnut
Columbia MO 65201

Your Honor,

My name is XXXXXXXXX and though I am not the victim in this case, I am a victim of this defendant. I wanted to make you aware of my experience with him, I believe it demonstrates Mr. Johnson’s character and I hope you might consider how he chose to treat me when you decide how to sentence this defendant.

On June 12, 2010 I contracted with Mr. Johnson to build and deliver a 6x6 chicken coop with a 6x8 yard. The total price he quoted me was $325.00. I paid him $175.00 cash down payment, and arranged to pay the balance,$150.00, on delivery, which he promised by July 1,2010. He did not deliver on July 1, and did not call. On July 3 I contacted him. At that time he told me he had a death in the family, I of course said I understood and told him to contact me the following week. I didn’t hear from him. I called him on Jul 12, at that time he told me he couldn’t finish the coop, his wife had left him. He wanted me to meet him at his business in Millersburg for a refund on Jul. 14. When I arrived at his business he wasn’t there, when I called he asked whether I would prefer the coop or the money, I said the coop. He claimed it was almost complete and promised delivery on Sunday Jul. 18. I never heard from him again and repeated calls to him have not been returned. I am partially disabled, and my wife is fully disabled. We live on a very limited income and it was difficult for us to just lose this money.

Unfortunately, I have learned that I am not an isolated case, while trying to locate information on Mr. Johnson in order to pursue a small claims suit I have spoken to several other persons who have also been taken advantage of monetarily by this man. One person I met who did follow through with a suit and won has no way to collect because he simply can’t find Mr. Johnson.

I am not a rich man, I have no real power. But I do have hope in the power of words, that they might effect some measure of justice.

Sincerely,

I did receive a letter from the Attorney General acknowledging my complaint, and they are trying to contact him. I am also planning to contact his bondsman and direct him to this site and also to Craig's list. He should have just given me my money, but I am hopeful that the next court date he will be on the TV monitor, wearing fashionable black and white stripes making his appearance from the Boone Co. Jail!
As for his brother Collin, I don't have much sympathy for him, he may be a good guy, but he's enabling this jerk, helping him to hide from the people that he's screwed over. If Jeremy were my brother, I wouldn't help him until he started to fly straight.

A little update on the crook. He is currently in the Boone County jail. I guess they picked him up for not showing on his court date. See link:

Let's hope his brother doesn't bail him out. I sent my letter to Judge Bryson as well. Everyone should do the same, since it looks like Tattletale's letter was received and documented. We're not going to get our money back, so let's hope the court provides some justice.

Thanks for this link, it's my wife's birthday and I think Time for Justice just gave her a great present! Don't see much hope of getting money back, but we can make his life more difficult. If the judge becomes aware that this is his general behavior (send those letters and documentation), he might come down on him hard enough to make him think twice about doing this to someone else. I refuse to make this easy on him.
I hope his brother reads this forum, if you do Collin, you are not helping him by continuing to bail him out, you are actually making it easy for him not to change, and to continue to hurt other innocent people. In a sense, by helping your brother you are helping him to harm more people, thus, indirectly, you are causing harm to people. Think about it. Don't get me wrong, I believe in forgiveness, but in such cases were the harm was deliberate, deceitful and repeated, forgiveness must be earned by deeds, not by words.

For those of you who haven't checked Case.net , JJ's criminal setting is scheduled for tomorrow, Oct 27th at 17:00. Also, I believe the letter I sent to Judge Bryson was filed and documented. It says "letter filed to state and pd." I'm hoping this means attorney general and police department. I submitted my contract and copy of cashier's check, so maybe they will decide to pursue him further. Again, I encourage other victims to tell your story to the court/police. Maybe he can be prosecuted further for what he has done to many of us.

I just never really thought it was bad until I got on here and seen all the crap he was doing to people. I figure if I can help out and get helped out at the same time then why not.

By the way, I just wanted to let everyone know that his wife has gotten back a hold of me and we have set everything straight about the car.

Time for Justice - PD stands for Public Defender, now officially representing JJ. So glad you filed your letter too, and that the judge is actually taking note of them. Hope some of the rest of you will write in as well, it can affect his sentencing. I submitted a copy of my contract with him to the judge along with my letter. It's true that I didn't lose nearly what some of you have, but I'm going to do my best to make him wish he had not done this to me.

We were also snookered by this thief. He played the hardship card on us and we fell for it. He told us that his wife took the only car they had and left him with 4 kids.
Our teenage son had purchased an '88 Chevy Cavalier Z24 to fix up to drive. He has spent a great deal of his hard earned money on this car. He traded a working '96 Park Avenue for the upholstery work, new head liner, door panels, and dash repair. We do have a written contract stating the work that was to be done with deadlines etc. We have received the same song and dance routine that everyone else has too. Jeremy Johnson is indiscriminate in who he steals from. My son is out the reliable Park Avenue but cannot drive the car he is fixing up because Jeremy took the seats and door panels out of the car.

For those who are interested it looks like JJ has a court date scheduled for 12/08/2010 Wed.@ 2:00p in Boone County Div 5 with Judge Bryson. Preliminary Hearing. Looks like he didn't get the bail reduction he was looking for and has been bound over for trial. My guess is that he'll be a guest of Boone Co. until at least the 8th. Let's hope he gets to spend Xmas in there as well. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy!

so you have found a way of getting ahold of melissa. she still owes me about a grand for when i did some work for jeremy back in early 2010. all i heard is she moved outta state. there is a warrent out for her but the judge didnt think it was a felony affence therefor if she gets stopped or anything i doubt they'll make her come back. if anyone knows how to get ahold of her that be great if they would let me know.
as for jeremy does anyone know the status on him weather he's sittin in jail yet or not? if not im trying to find him to get either some of the 6k he owes me for work i did for him or should i say customers.
if anyone has info on him or her please let me know i'm looking to try and get a few $ back or send him elsewere thanks. can email me at [email protected]

Unfortunately I saw this post a few months too late. I started dating him in April, posted bond on him in May and got wiped out financially by him this month. He was living with me in St. Louis and I believe he's still in the area (probably at a shelter who knows). I know he keeps continuing his cases and I'll be adding another felony to his file. So good luck to everyone. It's sad there are actually people like this in the world.

I am sorry that you got taken by him as well, but actually I am in general concerned for you. You wrote that you started dating this "guy" in April and that you let him move in with you by June? I think you need to look at that. And I hope that you will learn from this mistake... you sound like a good person that got taken by this snake. I am left wondering if you have some deeper issues that moved you to trust him to that extent so quickly. Do not compound your problems by giving him any more help. In the future, value yourself enough to demand better treatment. It took me about a week to suspect what kind of a louse he was, and only about 2.5 weeks to confirm those suspicions. I hope you realize that you deserve to be treated better by the man in your life. How can you tell when Jeremy is lying? His lips move.
