The “not so” Honorable Judge Dennis Lusk (Pro Tem) of the Maricopa Stanfield Justice Court, did in fact stomp all over my Constitutional Rights when he ordered me to apologize for something I did not do. Lesser men would have backed down when the tyrannical judge flexed his judicial muscle. Lesser men, lacking backbone, would have caved in and sold out to avoid jail time.
I stood my ground and stood up for my rights as an American Citizen. I proudly stood before this tyrant and refused to lie and/or incriminate myself. Sometimes, all it takes is guts. I found myself on trial stemming from a false complaint based on a lie from a complainant known to have been dishonest, previously.
Voluntarily walking into the Pinal County Jail in Florence, AZ last summer to serve out a sentence I did not deserve took plenty of intestinal fortitude, too. In the end, I knew I would be found to be in the right. I didn't have much faith in the court system and I still don't. After all, I was convicted without any evidence, solely on the word of a known liar (Patricia Bonefield). Documentation actually backs that up.
Our court system is not in the business of dispensing justice. It has nothing to do with right and wrong. These days, courts are all about collecting revenue.
It's my honest opinion that the Maricopa Stanfield Justice Court is nothing more than a municipal revenue generator. They prey on some of our community's most destitute and vulnerable people. In this court, we often have a situation where the defendant is financially unable to hire counsel. As a result, the prosecutor and judge gang up on the unrepresented defendant. This confirms my belief that justice is something you have to pay for and is only available to those with the financial means.
This is exactly what happened to me and is still happening to many others. During all the time I spent sitting in that courtroom, not once did I witness anyone be found “not guilty” or have their case dismissed. Not once!
Without a doubt, I knew that Judge Dennis Lusk, despite a law degree and many years on the bench, was so wrong that a higher court couldn't brush this under the rug and let it go away. I invoked my Fifth Amendment rights guaranteed by OUR Constitution and was promptly punished for doing so. People like Dennis Lusk have absolutely no business having a position of power over other people.
I suspect that Judge Dennis Lusk was consumed with hatred towards me because of my political beliefs. Maybe, he just didn't care he was doing the wrong thing and did it out of malice. I see him as nothing more than a tyrant wielding authority. With all of Lusk's years of experience, I cannot call this violation of my civil rights a mistake. He must have done it on purpose. A person like this must be removed from the bench.
The Superior Court's ruling is as follows:
In The Superior Court
Pinal County, State Of Arizona
Judge Pro Tem Bradley M. Soos
Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court, Cause No. CR0002010367
“. . .A convicted defendant's decision not to publicly admit guilt is irrelevant to a sentencing determination, and a trial court's decision to aggravate a sentence offends the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-recrimination. See State v. Hardwick, 183 Ariz. 649, 905 P.2d 1384 (App. 1995). Under the circumstances presented to this Court the trial court's order requiring Appellant to write a letter of apology constitutes fundamental error.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED the trial court's order for Appellant to write a letter of apology and imposition of jail sentence for his failure to do so are set aside. This case is remanded to the trial court for proceedings consistent with this opinion.” (A PDF file of this entire document is available upon request.

Although I was wrongfully jailed, I knew I was standing up for our people, nation and cause. This is nothing less than a victory for me. This is what my role in the National Socialist Movement is all about. This is a very proud day for me. I feel vindicated.
U.S. Constitution: Fifth Amendment
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/data/constitution/amendment05/
Ironically, the case that formed the basis for the Honorable Judge Soos's decision in my case was that of a child sex offender. See State v. Hardwick, 183 Ariz. 649, 905 P.2d 1384 (App. 1995) Basically, the courtroom conduct of one of the lowest of low life scumbags on the planet was partially responsible for my conviction being set aside. I guess stranger things have happened.
Thus, we concluded that a "convicted defendant's decision not to publicly admit guilt is irrelevant to a sentencing determination, and the trial court's use of this decision to aggravate a [d]efendant's sentence offends the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination." More
