I was found not guilty by reason of police entrapment for the crime of "importuning" in the state of ohio on 12/12/2005.
This illegal action by police cost me my life. I was a teacher, till this happend. I was a graduate student with a 3.79 GPA, till this happend. I lived in Ohio, till this happend.
That same evening of the arrest the police forced me to go to my home where they took possession of my computer and computer software. In my apartment they found Anabolic Steroids(F4). There was no search warrant, just some piece of paper which said "computer" related items on it. A warrentless search i was told that violated something called "fruit of the poisonous tree" I have been told.
I faced both of these charges separately in separate counties in ohio. The drug charge was finalized before the Importuning charge had even begun and my challenge to the legality of what police had done that evening that caused all of this.
I eventually did plead guilty to the drug charge, and won after jury trial of importuning and found not guilty by reason of pd entrapment.
I ask for legal help in 3 ways. Firstly i intend on proceeding civilly against the police for the losses i have endured as a result of their illegal action. I was also issued a court order by the judge that the pd immediately give back my property, to which i still wait and they refuse outright giving me back my items. This was also a 'sex charge' and i was repeatedly called a peadofile in local area newspapers and as a result dropped out of school, lost my job, and fled the state of ohio due to its extremely harsh punishments towards all sex offenders(in truth i planned on fleeing the country if I had lost).
Secondly, if the actions of police were ruled ILLEGAL. Then everything resulting from an illegal action should be dismissed correct? I had an appeal on this matter(the drug charge) so that the Importuning charge and police conduct could be addressed in it but my attorney kept my money and failed to write a brief on my behalf...to which my appeal was then dismissed. Can I get my appeal reinstated?
Lastly, as of monday 3/27/06 my license to teach in the state of ohio is going to be revoked FOR LIFE(my license has been expired since june 30th 2005 which i think is important to note). The reasons they list for doing this are due to things that i have already been exonnerated of in a court of law(the importuning, sex offense charge). The department of education has sent me a letter informing me that they intend on publishing this PROVEN FALSE information in a local area newspaper, if i chose to not show up and defend myself yet again to their bs charges???...are they then not guilty of deformation of character, slander, malicious persecution, and libel(since it will be in print)?
much of my story up to my victory in court (nothing of the recent actions by the department of edu however) is listed on the web at:
