Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution<quoted text>
So Glad you feel the Constitution of the United States is a loophole...
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.
The only reason Doug Weidemann didn't get a speedy trial is because he kept stalling with motions and appeals until the Supreme Court of our state laughed his rear end right back to his house in Tamarack.
Doug knew the witnesses against him, he could have brought witnesses in his favor if there had been anyone willing to defend such a dirtbag, and he was represented by J. Pierre Tismo of Dyer Garofalo Mann & Schultz, the usual TV lawyers just looking for someone dumb enough to give them money to chase some wild idea.
Seems to have worked for this guy!
And to think, it would have all been averted if Doug had just kept enough money in his bank to cover his liabilities, or perhaps if he knew the account was a little thin, perhaps he could have abstained from writing those rubber checks!
But, of course...like most bankrupt tea partiers they must have their vices. For Kelly Kohls it was the all expenses vacation, for Doug Weidemann it is apparently a sporty airplane up at the Dayton South airport. Take a look for yourself:
But, why let financial responsibility get in the way of your play toys??! Yet these are the first people standing on their soap box to tell the rest of us how financially responsible our schools should be and how greedy we are for wanting a good education for our children.
Class act, Doug. Class act!
