LESTER COLEMAN CASE NO. 2012CF2300
TO: HONORABLE JAMES HANKINSON 2ND JUDICIAL CIRCUIT
On 17 December, 2012 this Honorable Court issued an ORDER DISMISSING the above cited case Without Prejudice. The Court ruled based on testimony of two Court appointed Psychologist who stated the Defendant was not competent to proceed. The nature of the Defendant’s competent condition was not revealed in the Public Record, therefore the Tallahassee Police Department, that initiated this case in April, 2012, was not privy to the nature of the Defendant’s illness which was cause for dismissal. [ Note: Defendant suffers from incurable Progressive Supra Nuclear Palsy ]
Despite this Honorable Court’s Decree ordering all Defendant’s seized property to be returned immediately, The Tallahassee Police Department, namely the Supervising Officer in this matter, Investigator, Scott Angulo refused to do so. On 15 January, 2014, the appointed representative of the Defendant, a Co-Founder COPWATCH TALLAHASSEE, appeared at the TPD Property Division with this Court’s Order, to retrieve the twenty (20) items seized by TPD.
TPD has refused to release the Hold in a direct violation of this Court’s Direct Order , stating (1) clarification was needed from the State’s Attorney, then, the following day, stating (2) the State’s Attorney “intended” to file a Motion for Clarification with this Court. No time frame was mentioned.
We seek that this Court meet with the State’s Attorney and summon the TPD General Counsel to explain why TPD is not in Criminal Contempt, and Defendant’s seized property ordered released by this Court 17 December, 2013 is still in TPD possession.
RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED THIS 21ST DAY OF JANUARY, 2012 ON BEHALF OF DEFENDANT, A HOMEBOUND, DISABLED PERSON.
