This week we answered the question “is a prosecutor REQUIRED to inform each defendant of potential credibility issues with any testing results relevant to the offense(s) charged?” Here you can find the Constitution Segment Recap slideshow: https://tinyurl.com/3tye86a6
Didn’t catch our RFW episode? We discussed: When State Police lab testing has potential credibility issues, what duties do Prosecutors have toward Defendants? Real life, current issues in our criminal justice system! Explaining this issue from a Constitutional perspective.
As mentioned in our post regarding the Constitution Segment Recap, here is the PDF of all of the Motions & Briefs Katherine submitted Thursday, May 26th, to Allegan County 57th District Court: tinyurl.com/2p8j9j83
We would like to STRONGLY encourage you to take a few minutes to read the 1st link – “Notice of Hearing, Motion for Immediate Consideration, Proof of Service”. It gives the highlights of all the things that have been happening and what we are asking the court to do now. For more information on this case, and for more resources to fight your own situation, please continue reading the other documents submitted. We are also asking for prayers that the judge finally does the right thing in this case and dismisses both charges WITH prejudice (meaning charges cannot be resubmitted).
The trial judge in Katherine’s case ruled that she has NO right to make any legal challenges to the case brought against her – meaning it’s ok for the Prosecutor to charge her with something that is NOT a crime!
So this week, we talked about Motions to Dismiss a court case – and discovered the law says ALL accused DO have the right to challenge the illegality of cases brought against them.
But the Bible addresses this issue more simply: You shall do no injustice in court. Leviticus 19:15
Didn’t catch our Get Involved Challenge for “Motions to Dismiss – What are they?” We talked about: Look at and read ALL of MCR 2.116 to learn the different ways you are able to defend yourself. You either have experienced, are experiencing, or will experience a situation where either you are bringing a claim that somebody is trying to get dismissed or a claim is being brought against you in a civil or criminal case. You need to know how to DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS.

Didn’t catch our RFW episode? We discussed: Can you use these in criminal cases or civil cases? What law allows you to file these? What do they look like? What are some reasons you can request a case to be dismissed? Whether you have a case currently pending or not; whether you have an attorney representing you or not; whether you have any prior legal knowledge or not, this is definitely an episode you don’t want to miss!
