On a personal note, in my 10 years as a Criminal Prosecutor specialising in child abuse, sex offences, sexual child abuse as well as rape & homicides: I cannot recall a single instance when either of the 2 State's Attorneys I worked for EVER said back off because this defendant is too rich or powerful.

The first case I tried in front of a jury the defense attorney was known as "The Silver Fox" & was paid a retainer more than my entire salary for the year. That fact made me work harder, not run off scared & I won that case despite all the tricks, shenanigans, pressure etc that went on during the trial.

The Grand Jury was used to "test" tricky cases in order to get feedback as to their reactions to pieces of evidence. NEVER ONCE was a "True Bill of Indictment" returned that was not signed by the State's Attorney & then not prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I found this and went, wow, how come I never heard of this? BUT, there is inaccuracies in this. For example, she goes from ST's resignation letter to say that the Detectives were not called before the grand jury to testify. NOT TRUE. Everyone BUT Steve Thomas WAS called before the grand jury. Second, she admits she did not read Kolar's book, and makes assumptions about it and why it didn't sell well that, to me, are not accurate. You need to read his book period. Then she says something about John Ramsey's wife #3 I've never heard before, I'll leave that there. All the rest of it is born out through her own first hand experience of trying cases, and yes, the fixing of the grand jury indictment DOES warrant her being as angry as she is, IMO>

...not prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law is a TRICK and benefit for people connected to wealthy they used in Boulder in the Midyette case, and it must have ORIGINATED in this case, of the MAXIMUM they will charge for the same crime IS NOT the same as what a poorer person is charged for the same crime in the same jurisdiction.

FOR EXAMPLE again, a poor person in Boulder County when Mary Lacy was DA named Joseph Dowler was arrested within TWO WEEKS of beating his son to death, the baby had 10 broken bones. His wife was also charged with neglect, but he was the one that LE believed committed the crime. He was charged with first degree murder and first degree child abuse AS WELL AS child abuse leading to death. LACY PERSONALLY prosecuted the case. They did not win on first degree murder, but Dowler got a 60 year sentence.

A couple of years later, the connected to great wealth Midyette parents baby dies with severe injuries and 37 broken bones. THEY are not arrested for 15 months, only AFTER a media and public uproar and a grand jury indictment for CHILD ABUSE LEADING TO DEATH ONLY. Not Murder One or Child Abuse One. Combined, the Midyette's sentences were HALF of what Dowler received, and Molly is due to be released to a half way house any day now, after doing only 5 years in prison. THAT'S RICH PEOPLE'S JUST US SYSTEM AT WORK.

Hi Candy,
I quickly browsed the site and stumbled upon her view on how John Ramsey's third marriage came about.
HILARIOUS!!!!!
And right after that she wrote 'sue me Lin Wood'.
Considering some of the hyper obscene patently absurd scenarios presented by the Ramseys Apologists, this is a breath of fresh air.

Hi Steve,

I was very shocked by what she said as wife #3 was described by John as being a missionaries kid, and lived all over the world as a result of that. Who knows though?

That reminds me, I was trying to find ANY type of confirmation of what John's "title" at that church of his is in CHX. He NEVER has any duties up there whatsoever. In looking in some church bulletins, who should wander on up to CHX but BETH HOLLOWAY last October at a function at Ramsey's church? I didn't see John or Jan, just Beth.... I looked and her closest speaking engagement ie., reason to be in the area, was over 5 hours away in Ohio. You don't just wander up to the sticks of Northern Michigan, it's out of the way by a lot, so I wonder what she was doing up there....

Thanks for the shout out. Please check back as I add often. Please sign up on Twitter to know what is happening every day, it is a free service.

I would love to see Liar Lin Wood come to my home court to wrangle with a person not too impoverished to defend themselves in Atlanta & far more skilled in a courtroom that he could possibly imagine: I never lost a jury trial. He prevented any major publications by getting injunctions against both Linda as well as Steve.

Thanks so much for your blog postings on this case! It was very encouraging to read, after the sorry likes of Dan Abrams praising Hunter's decision not to sign the true bill of indictment and prosecute the Ramseys. It means a lot to have a former prosectuing attorney with a great trial track record come forward about how abnormal the situation in Boulder was.
