For reasons that escape me Don Carpenter made a series of Twitter posts first implying that the document dump I will be releasing sometime next week will only be documents already out and available to the public through one or more on line file databases.
He found out in short order that he was quite wrong.
Don, who is supposed to be in the media himself apparently could not figure out what exactly the documents were until I hinted what they were.
In case those of you that are reading this have not figured it out, I ordered the court transcripts from the April hearing where Deric was finally arrested. I was told by the court reporter that the transcripts will be hitting my email account by Friday, April 28 at the latest. I will then publish the transcripts in the same manner as I did with the transcripts from the previous hearing.
What Don fails to understand or reveal in his twitter posts is that court transcripts are not free. In fact they are somewhat expensive. In this case to the tune of $257.00.
Because I ordered the transcripts the public will get to see them for free, including Don Carpenter.
I am not sure why Don made such an issue out of my “teaser” which is a common method the media uses to get people to “tune in” at a specified time to see what it is that is being promoted.
What is done is done, however and the secret such as it is out.
Yesterday a local NC media outlet posted an article about Deric Lostutter using material submitted to her by Deric while he was in county jail. The article offered nothing new but, instead, repeated the same false narratives that Deric has been spreading for years.
It would appear that his wife is not only his atty but is also now serving as his press secretary. The one thing that can be said about the Lostutter’s is that they are propagandists. How good they are at this will remain to be seen.
Many people thought that when Michelle McKee was dropped from Deric’s lawsuit that she would be happy and go on her merry way. People who know Michelle well, knew better.
Michelle filed a motion to collect her portion of the legal fees incurred in the lawsuit Deric filed against her along with punitive damages for suing her in the first place.
This did not sit well with Deric who yesterday, filed a rebuttal to her motion which, by the way is a neat trick since he is now in federal prison.
There is also something rather odd about this filing which I will get to later. For right now, I am going to go through Deric’s motion point by point.
Deric is only partly correct. Michelle McKee is reported to be heading back to Gig Harbor Washington. Apparently she did not feel comfortable remaining in Georgia.
I would assume that in this portion, he is referring to Thomas Olsen who has filed such an order. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for late May.
of information regarding her interactions with Thomas Olsen and Alexandra Goddard. She is said to have turned over private messages, e-mails and documents related to the defense evidence intended to be used to combat the civil lawsuit filed by Deric.
She has also agreed to act as a witness for Deric as he pursues his lawsuit.
In this portion Deric argues that the other defendants took advantage of Michelle’s “diminished mental state” thus implying that Michelle was not mentally competent. (NOTE: THIS IMAGE IS OUT OF ORDER RE: ORIGINAL DOCUMENT)
Now, remember that I said there was something odd about this filing. Please note in this portion of the filing the date that Deric signed the document and again note the date that this document was filed with the court,
Now compare those documents with the notary stamp below.
According to the notary, this document was submitted to her on April 10th. I noticed that a different colored ink had been used to “fill in” the day of the month where the date appeared in various locations on the document.
To me this means that the document was prepared well in advance of the filing and that the notary signed a document that was both undated and altered subsequent to her notarizing it.
This brings up a few interesting questions:
First, why did the notary stamp a document that was not dated?
Does the fact that the document was altered by adding a date nullify it’s validity?
What are the ramifications to both the Notary and to Deric regarding these changes?
And finally, who filled in the date? Deric is currently housed in a federal prison over 1200 miles away from where this motion was filed. One can assume his wife Jennifer, who is now acting as his atty filled in the dates on the document.
i had an interesting surprise this morning. I checked with the Federal Bureau of Prisons to see if Deric’s transfer from a county prison to a federal facility had hit the public records, and sure enough it has.
Not only did Deric not go to the Butner NC facility asked for by his defense atty, but instead, went to a federal prison some 1200 miles in the opposite direction from where he lives, give or take a few miles.
This means that if his wife decides to visit him, she is in for one hell of a drive.
My it has been a busy day for me today. As I said earlier, the atty for Thomas, Michelle and Alexandra quit because of the disputes going on between primarily Thomas and Michelle. Alexandra Goddard found herself caught in the middle of the dispute.
The dispute between Thomas Olsen and Michelle McKee started a while back when there was a settlement pending between the three parties and Deric Lostutter.
As I recall, Michelle decided it was not in her best interest to accept the settlement and made her feelings known. This decision on her part cased a rather intense and lengthy dispute between her and Olsen. As time went on the dispute reached such intensity that outside parties soon took interest in the dispute.
Another major milestone took place when Deric suddenly decided to drop Michelle McKee from the lawsuit. This only made matters worse as Thomas Olsen and Alexandra Goddard were now concerned that this action had only strengthened Deric Lostutter’s chances of winning his lawsuit against him.
Things got so intense that Thomas Olsen felt that Michelle McKee was stalking him and as a result of his concerns, he filed an action in the Santa Rosa county court where he resides in Florida.
Michelle McKee is rumored to have left the state of Georgia and is on her way back to Gig Harbor, Washington. Michelle McKee is unavailable for comment as she has deactivated her twitter accounts.
A hearing into the matter is scheduled for May, 24th, 2017.
This has turned out to be something of an active day for information flowing my way. First, I find out that Deric has been transferred to a new jail and then I find out that the Atty for Alexandra Goddard and Thomas Olsen has notified the court that he will no longer represent them. To top things off, I find out that Thomas Olsen is suing Michelle McKee which turns out to be the primary reason that Mr Gibson withdrew from their case.
This development now gives a long shot chance that Deric may prevail if the lawsuit goes forward. The motion to dismiss Deric’s lawsuit has yet to be ruled upon. IF the court dismisses the civil lawsuit, then the case may be at an end.
If, however, the court does allow the lawsuit to go forward, the dispute between Olsen and McKee may give Deric a better chance to prevail.
In the meantime…..
