If you have had a suspicious experience with Mr. Slape, or you know of someone who has, please contact the Eureka Police Department or the District Attorney's Office about filing charges. The more people that are added to this case, the stronger it will be. We need to stop this guy.

Sheesh. This story provides zero information about who this guy is and what he supposedly did. It's news that the case has been continued three times?
Looks like the DA's office issued a news release whining about the continuances, even though they asked for one of them.

Question for Lolita...if you knew something was up when he'd spend more time on your breast and crotch area why did you continue to see him?? Why didn't you file a suit before this one??

Lolita- please contact someone about this, for your own good, and others. If a person like this is not stopped now it WILL continue to get worse and worse untill he is stopped.

Mr. Stevens:
I am Mr. Slape, I have a problem with your newspaper article published last week on 7/22/09 that included a statement that Back In Action’s owner is “free on bail”. I insist you immediately, equally, and fairly repair the damage done to my reputation by your slanderous statement. Otherwise, a libel suit will be filed against you.
A person can only be “free on bail” after an arrest was made. Thus, your statement clearly implies I was arrested. Both of these statements are not true. You also might consider including that I am pleading not guilty to the charges. I am sure you are aware that there are two sides to every story, and I am hoping you will report on BOTH of them, if you report ANY of them.

For some reason, this website distorted my words, so I am posting my letter a second time to be sure it is clear your report libeled me.

So the Times-standard has carelessly begun reporting untruths about Mr. Slape. Is this the type of one-sided sensationalized reporting we can expect to be fed the next few months?

This is NOT the FULL story! Mr. Slape will be filing a lawsuit for libel against the reporter and publisher if a retratction is not forthcoming! Read TheSpineGuru.com to see how Mr.Slape beat the State of California and their allies in more than 5 separate legal actions in the past 2 years. How about some objectivity and truth in your newspaper?

Read "legal Tyranny" on " TheSpineGuru.com " for the true story and background on Mr. Slape. Seems that whenever his appeals rise above the fog of Eureka, he wins his case. He beat EDD, and Medicare and a frivolous personal injury lawsuit.

Maybe he's really good at massage and perosnal training, and it's just too threatening to the others who are not as good. Looks like a smut campaign to me.

I will be contacting the Eureka Police Department regarding charges I made to the state.
For those who don't have the full story,there are more than you can imagine to the whole story but I see no need to air it in the papers until trial begins.

According to the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology (2005), in the USA, between 1989 and 2003, 340 exonerations took place. Most were in prison 5 years or more. In some cases the evidence of wrongful conviction was so dramatic a governor pardoned the "felon". In other cases, 144 were cleared by DNA evidence. Of the remaining 196 falsely convicted persons, they were cleared because of irrefutable evidence that 1) the victim lied, 2) the prosecutors or 3) police lied, and 4) even the criminal labs were discovered to falsify evidence due to BIAS.

Read the entire story by Gross, jacoby, Matheson,... These 340 people spent more than 3400 YEARS in prison for wrongful convictions. LET'S SHOW SOME OBJECTIVITY about these accusations, shall we? Just google the article to see the entire study. You can be sure the press hunted these poor victims of the system, just as Jessie Faulkner has done, and the Times is allowing.

If your check your information, you will see that Slape is NOT free on bail, and he was never arrested. These reckless statements are defamatory libel. There is a larger story, and you are choosing to not see it, and reporting out of context. Further, your re-publishing may also be defamatory, and it is no excuse that you are simply reprinting another's reckless story. Check out my blog. You will see that the Times-Standard who originally printed these lies, has bee nthreatened with a libel suit.

What ever happened with this? Trial was supposed to be in November of last year. There is no current info on the web. Knew him years ago.

Yes, why hasn't he gone to trial? So many of the charges against him have passed the statute of limitation, expired. He was quick to threaten law suits against the reporter. I thought people had a right to know what is going on.

Give someone enough rope and they will hang themselves? It is true from reading Mr. Slape's site that he is very slippery - well Mr. Slate lets see you squirm your way out of Paul's grip. I will remind folks that people are innocent until proven guilty in this country - thanks to a Republic form of government - under a true democracy the masses would have already hanged him high.

There is nothing slippery on Mr. Slape's website. It tells his story and explains what he does. What state agency does not have an agenda? Fair trial in Eureka where police are allowed to shoot mentally ill people dead with no consequences? Isn't that the same DA---Paul--?

Mr. Slape has published a book, "The Path To Back In Action" which seems to be an autobiography.
It's on Amazon.com .
