Letter from an Incarcerated Ohio Father

In an Ohio Inmate Letter Dated May 19, 2008 I received the following:

Dear Mr. Fantetti,

First of all, I apologize if I have misspelled your name. I was given this information by another inmate at C.R.C.

I am currently here serving 12 months for criminal felony non-support of minor child and was sentenced to 12 months incarceration by Judge XXXXXXX of Montgomery County in Dayton Ohio, case # XXXXXXX.

I would like to tell you about my story and my daughter Megan, whose case this is about. Megan had been living with me for the last 4 years. Megan’s mom had a crack problem and I was paying full support for two years after Megan came to live with me.

Her mom’s drug problem got worse, and she was eventually sentenced to 3 years in prison to be served at the Marysville Reformatory for Women. During the entire three years of Megan’s moms incarceration, Megan was living with me while I was forced to pay full child support to her mother.

I lost my license after the CSEA suspended it for non-support, so I couldn’t drive to work. I had continued driving and paying support until I was caught driving under suspension. Since I could no longer risk driving under suspension, I could no longer drive to work and stopped paying support.

I’ve got a son I’m supposed to pay support for to, but couldn’t work after the CSEA suspended my license.

This whole case has turned my and my family’s lives inside out. I would appreciate any help you could give me. My mother has all my case #’s and would help you in any way u need. Feel free to contact her – her name is XXXXXXXX and her address is XXXXXXXXX Dayton OH 45432 and her phone number is xxx xxx xxxx..

And you have my full permission to do anything you need to help me in this matter. I would like to thank you in advance. Please end me any info you can.


Inmate xxxx xxxxxxx #xxxxxx
PO Box 300
Orient OH

    Contact the State of Ohio Supreme Court Ethics Department and file complaints against the prosecuting attorney within CSEA, Judge that accepted these circumstances and be sure to do your homework prior to making your complaint. Have any laws, rules, and ethics violations that were made aware to CSEA prior to their decision, and a case log showing exactly the horrible conditions that were working against you.

    The ethics department does not care about the father and his well being. It is only a means to hold those accountable who have worked against you unethically. Learn the ethics.

    Anyone and everyone who can fill out an ethics complaint will be supporting the other fathers and the future victims. Including complaints against Western Ohio Legal Aid.

    Read the ethics including Federal Ethics violations. Fax the complaint form or mail it. A call will get you a stamped envelope. Dont be shy. File a complaint. I will post one of my successful ones on this web site. Hang in there brothers, if we dont support eachother now, who will support you when you need help!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want to begin to hit them where it hurts, everyone that has legit complaints must blow the doors off with the information.

    This is ultimately the Achilles Heal for Attorneys, Judges, Magistrates ( attorneys that could not make it in the real world and now judge you and I) Angry **** women in Domestic.

    Maybe after the president changes, we will start to see ***** on TV and in the courthouse again. E Pluribus Unim. Of many one.

      Please consider that we’re all in this together; and that, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, creed, sex or nationality. As you said, “E Pluribus Unim. Of many one.”

      I rarely edit the posts of others, but will on occasion as I have with yours. That said, I do appreciate the assistance you’re offering and certainly look forward to you posting the successful complaint you referenced.

      I wholeheartedly agree with your advice, “learn the ethics” then file complaints based on those ethics.
