West Virginia Prosecutors Prove Once Again Why Individuals SHOULD be Permitted to Sue the State for Malicious Prosecution!!

By Editor Edison CalPatty Press Editor/William L Anderson-Expert on prosecutorial, judicial, and police misconduct and the demise of the Rule of Law in the USA

This BOOM POLE Gerald B Hough told a grand jury was worth hundreds of dollars and you can see for yourself that this is just a bunch of rusted junk worth nothing! Photo was taken 18 months before the trial. The total for all the used rusted farm equipment in the Travesty of Justice Case was also a BIG LIE with the value listed at $2498.00 when the appraiser said it was only worth $390.00 for everything. Hough brought forward what legal experts say was a malicious prosecution that cost a career broadcaster his career and five years of court in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court with Gilmer County backing the false evidence all the way. Gerry Hough is truly a criminal!!

We all have learned for ourselves what a LIAR Gerald B Hough is, and what a complete train wreck of a lawyer he is, having to take the Barr exam in WV EIGHT times before he finally passed it. Unfortunately there are other dishonest prosecutors in the state of West Virginia and this report by Willy Anderson tells the story.

Although this report deals with the case of a former teacher in Randolph County, it speaks directly to Gerry Hough and his heavy-handed antics.

West Virginia Prosecutors Prove Once Again Why Individuals SHOULD be Permitted to Sue the State for Malicious Prosecution

The recent acquittal of Autumn Rae Faulkner in Elkins, West Virginia, in which a jury deliberated for only an hour, provides ironclad proof that prosecutors, state and federal, should NOT be protected with any kind of immunity, period. When jurors take only an hour to acquit — and having served as a jury foreman, I can tell you that much of that time was spent on activities besides talking about the case — one can bet that they made up their minds even before the prosecution rested its case.

Faulkner was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student three times in 2008 and 2009.

It is easy to surmise that prosecutors had NO case whatsoever, and either the so-called “experts” were the stupidest people in the room, or they were the most craven. I wish it were the former, but the latter dominates my thinking.

So, why did the prosecution bring the charges and destroy this woman’s life in the first place? They did it because they can do it, and that is what they were telling everyone else. Prosecutors, you see, really don’t care about guilt or innocence; they just love showing their authority, and since the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that prosecutors have absolute immunity, they also know that no one in the system will hold them accountable.

Shown with her attorney during a court appearance Autumn Rae Faulkner was charged with three felony counts of third-degree sexual assault and three felony counts of sexual abuse by a custodian or person of trust to a child. She was arrested in March 2009 by Sgt. A.S. Loudin with the West Virginia State Police for allegedly having sexual relations with her former student on three separate instances from December 2008 to February 2009.

In reading the article on the acquittal, I am struck by the utter arrogance that prosecutors had, and the way they dishonestly went about presenting evidence:

Following the trial, special prosecuting attorney Steve Jory said he didn’t believe there was anything else the prosecution could have done differently that would have altered the outcome of the case.

“I think we presented every piece of evidence we had available to present,” Jory remarked. “The case was fairly tried and the jury made its decision. Apparently they didn’t believe we had enough evidence to prove our case.”

But it gets even better:

Mazzei also highlighted the fact that the state hadn’t presented any DNA evidence.

“The state took phones and [Faulkner’s] computer, her couch, her comforter, bedding, a car, and no evidence ever came out of that that would prove Mrs. Faulkner was guilty,” Mazzei said.

During his final statement, however, Jory told Mazzei that the prosecution wasn’t able to present any DNA evidence because “you wouldn’t allow your client and her husband to give (DNA) samples and we could not complete lab analysis.” When asked after the trial if the court could have compelled Faulker and her husband, Scott Faulkner, to submit their DNA for testing, Jory said that it was possible, but the previous prosecutor in the Faulkner case — former Randolph County Prosecutor Richard Busch — had failed to do so.

When asked why he didn’t later ask the court to order the Faulkners to submit their DNA for analysis, Jory simply said “there were a lot of factors” involved. (Emphasis mine)

As anyone familiar with criminal law knows, if the state wants evidence, it can get it. My sense is that the prosecutors and police did not seek DNA evidence because they knew there was none, it so leaving things in the realm of mere speculation where they could use innuendo would be more effective. (I imagine prosecutors already had convinced members of the media that Faulkner was a predator, but most journalists will believe anything cops and prosecutors say.) To claim to a jury that the state could not get evidence because the defendant and her attorney told them they could not get it fails to pass the laugh test.

Gerald B Hough with his shirt pulled out and his belly button exposed in this prissy photo that lets his dishonest demeanor show through. “Yeah clasp your hands bitch so we can put the cuffs on you and take you where you belong!!” Hough is responsible for paying state witnesses to lie on the stand about ownership of property in dispute that was proved false by a $5000.00 Title opinion in the longest running court case in Gilmer County history that saw its way to WV Supreme Court, US Supreme Court, US District Court in Elkins and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond Virginia. Gerry Hough and Judge Facemire now have to face allegations of misconduct along with the proven outright lies they both alluded to in statements to the Judicial Investigation Commission and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel. The Defendant in that case was the person that discovered and EXPOSED the FERPA VIOLATION by Gerry Hough during a Rape Case when he worked at Glenville State College. The story was covered by Lawrence Smith and the West Virginia Record after Smith investigated the matter and obtained all the facts not previously known that revealed HOUGH LIED to GSC and the ODC and got caught and was instrumental in ruining the life of yet another rape victim, for that is what Gerald B Hough does best!

But, when it comes to the use of innuendo, nothing tops this:

The state’s evidence – or its lack thereof – was the subject of (Rocco) Mazzei’s closing arguments Thursday.

“The state has this theory that a whole lotta text messages somehow equals guilt of sex,” Mazzei said, referring to the voluminous number of text messages Faulkner sent to the 18-year-old student based on documents the prosecution subpoenaed from AT&T. “[Jory] wants you to convict her on a number of text messages. You should require the state to prove that this theory … as it is, this theory is mere speculation. You haven’t seen the content of a single text message.”

F John Oshoway, should never be hired as a defense counsel for the fact that he actually worked for the prosecution Gerald B Hough after taking a CASH payment from his client for the “Travesty of Justice” case  out of Gilmer County,which has also proved to be a malicious prosecution based on false facts and evidence. Oshoway is not very bright and is about the worst type of attorney there is in WV and is only good as an appointed attorney to plead his guilty clients guilty and process them off to prison.

Wow! So, prosecutors told the jurors that there were a great number of text messages, but did not show their content to jurors in hopes that they would be able to use their imaginations to surmise what Faulker MIGHT have written. As anyone familiar with teacher-student sex cases knows, text messages in the sort of situation prosecutors were alleging existed would have been filled either with sexual innuendo or outright graphic language.

What does this mean? It means that prosecutors read the messages and realized that not one of them were sexual, so they tried to deceive jurors, instead, by lying and suborning perjury.

Lord knows how much money Faulkner and her husband and family spent defending her against charges that obviously were false from the beginning. No doubt, the West Virginia school system will take its revenge by permanently sullying her record.

And what happens to prosecutors who financially ruin innocent people just because they can do it? Nothing. These are people who viciously ruined the lives of others in an attempt to make an obviously fraudulent case look to have substance.

Will the State of West Virginia take action? Don’t hold your breath. Once again, we see why prosecutors should be sued; that is the ONLY way they will be held accountable.

Are these prosecutors the proverbial “bad apples” in a good barrel? Think again; in West Virginia, the entire barrel is rotten.
