David Rose, the innocent Ohio Council for Fathers Rights member wrongly incarcerated after being convicted by the perjured testimony of a Darke County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) employee wrote in a recent letter to me:
“There’s another Father imprisoned here who was indicted twice by the Darke County CSEA and incarcerated by Judge Jonathan Hine for felony non-support after he broke his neck and couldn’t work!”
What Mr. Rose and I would like to know is if this Father’s Darke County CSEA caseworker was Ms. Linda Mallot. Furthermore, I’d like to know if Darke County Administrator Joel Schinke and Darke County Judge Jonathan Hine were smirking and smiling back and forth at that Father’s trial as I witnessed them doing at Mr. Rose’s trial? Do they find it funny to imprison Fathers and separate them from their children? Is this how Ohio’s CSEA’s act in the best interest of the innocent children, by laughing as they imprison their Fathers?
In all fairness to Darke County’s CSEA and to maintain our credibility, I have not spoken with the Father making this allegation. Therefore I obviously have not corroborated this story but fully intend to do so. I would ask him to sign a release of information to enable me to discuss his case with Darke County, but Mr. Joel Schinke has ignored my repeated requests to provide a release regarding Mr. Rose’s case. Given Mr. Rose is now under 24 hour lock down at Orient’s Correctional Inmate Reception Center and has been since March 24, 2008, it would be difficult to draft our own release.
Am I being irresponsible by blogging this allegation without having verified it’s authenticity? I think not. My reasoning is such that based on the Ohio CSEA atrocities that I know to be true, coupled with the Darke County CSEA’s ongoing stonewalling and lack of interest in the truth regarding Mr. Rose’s case, my intuition tells me there exists a distinct possibility said allegation is completely with merit. Should I learn otherwise, this post will be edited and/or deleted.
Lastly, another reason I find the aforementioned allegation believable is because of how Ohio’s child support statutes are presently written. Ohio does not have any provisions within its statutes whereby unwillingly falling behind in one’s child support payments is “excusable.” For example, a Non-Custodial Mom or Dad who is hospitalized in a coma due to a car accident, or unable to work due to receiving chemotherapy for cancer, or bedridden due to some other injury or diseased can be indicted and convicted for felony non-support by a sadistic prosecutors.
Considering Ohio is riddled with detestable prosecutors in the likes of Darke County’s Jesse Greene who shows a jury pay stubs so they mistakenly believe a Father has earned an annual income he has never made, and they withhold exculpatory evidence such as the ruling of a competent state tribunal that says a Father lost his job through no fault of his own, anyone with any medical condition can be indicted by demented and inhumane prosecutors. There exists a very good reason why 22 out of 88 (25%) of Ohio’s county prosecutors refuse to indict non-custodial parents (NCP’s) for criminal felony non-support. It’s unjust and morally reprehensible in a civilized society to treat people who have fallen upon hard times with such contemptuous hatred.
