I was assaulted by the defendant on 8/13/13. On 10/9/13

I was assaulted by the defendant on 8/13/13. On 10/9/13 there was civil restraining order for 3 1/2 years issued to the defendant by the Superior Court (Los Angeles, SW District). The case moved into the next phase with a different tag number. This is when everything went legally wrong. The Deputy DA assigned to assist me deliberately excluded me out of 3/20/14 hearing by not mailing me a subpoena and instead calling me and my wife by phone without leaving a message about the hearing where she acceded to a plea bargain of guilty for no jail time for the assailant. We were tricked. Let me know if I can use this to claim a legal mistrial. Thank you-L.De Lumen,***@******.***,(###) ###-####

The defense attorneys in our civil claim have filed false

Customer: The defense attorneys in our civil claim have filed false discovery, false affidavits, and lied to the court and jury about a NYS law which the jury based their decision on. We filed a post trial motion for mistrial, the judge wouldn't address the issue and denied motion as well as they file another false affidavit against the ptm. We then filed a cple 5015 on the misconduct to the ptm and judicial and attorney disqualification which was denied in sept 2015. We want to file for either perjury or judiciary law 487 for deceit on the court, or ethics misconduct against them, but are trying to figure out how. The case can be viewed online at www.jessevannamevrge..com We won summary judgment and an appeal as well. Any directions would be appreciated. JA: Thanks.

I have been convicted of a misdemeanor of restraining order.

I have been convicted of a misdemeanor for violation of restraining order. I took it to trial because it was not done intentionally and all I did was send a text message through our daughter to get a hold of me to discuss the kids. This was allowed per the RO. It specifically said that Contact allowed via text message only. she never provided a phone as ordered by the court. I had to communicate through our children. So Sad. I forgot to mention my wife is A COP and she convinced her colleagues to have me arrested after a hearing. The DA rejected her numerous attempts to have me violated I found this out in discovery when they turned over the file on me. She even called neighboring cities saying i crossed her path art the grocery store. Fast forward, I went to trial because a fabricated domestic violence charge was on me. They said I made threat to a 3rd party. The DA also rejected this case.Most could not believe they were pushing so hard. A jury of someones peers but not mine convicted me, Now my attorney will file an appeal. I think of numerous reasons for a mistrial or a reversal. Do I have to start my sentence immediately? Can I push my surrender date out at least a month or two to get my affairs in order?" I am going to ask for jail time because they want me to do way too much community service and fines and probation. Better try just do the time right? Lastly, can't I remain on bail during the appeal process? I have truly been railroaded on this case and I am considering calling a press conference because of my wifes abuse of Police Powers Malicious prosecution, and Police harassment. I this a good Idea? I really believe the jurors were not instructed by the judge properly. And the DA was playing with words trying to show I knew what i was doing was wrong. I sent a text message. I have work to do leading up to mid February. If I blow this gig it will ruin me. Please advisee Thank You I m due in court in 2.5 hours
