Corruption Exposed By A Parent

In Regard To Crimes Committed By WCS/GBC Administrators And Their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Attorney

After the cowardly John Kasich refused to do anything about these serious crimes committed against his very own family and thousands of others involving millions of dollars, a parent began working with The Supreme Court of Ohio to have the WCS/GBC attorney disbarred. However, that parent was actually prosecuted and eventually put in jail for 9 days for simply asking two (2) questions, the first question as suggested by The Supreme Court, about those serious crimes.

As we all know, it is our civic and moral responsibility to see to it that those who deliberately commit serious crimes against our families and others are held accountable for those crimes. This is required to discover the extent of the offenses, to discover other crimes committed by those responsible, to punish those responsible for all crimes committed, to prevent those responsible from committing those or similar crimes yet again, and to deter others who might consider committing such crimes. Allowing serious crimes to be committed without holding those responsible accountable is also a terrible example to students; especially to those students deliberately put at “big-time liable” “risk” by the administrators at Worthington Christian Schools (WCS), Grace Brethren Church (GBC), and their Schottenstein, Zox, and Dunn (SZD) (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam.

Corruption Exposed By A Parent

In Regard To Crimes Committed By WCS/GBC Administrators And Their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Attorney

While fulfilling my civic and moral responsibility to have the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam, held accountable in a criminal court of law for the crimes they have committed against my family, me, and thousands of others involving millions of dollars, I have been intimidated, entrapped, and have had my business severely disrupted by the SZD law firm. I have also been intimidated by Judge James E. Green and Prosecutor Robert S. Tobias. These actions have exposed serious corruption at the Columbus Prosecutor’s Office. Note that holding the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney accountable is not simply a civic and moral responsibility, it is also required to stand up for the dignity of the students who were deliberately put at “big-time liable” “risk” by the WCS/GBC administrators and for the dignity of God who never ever would approve of such a thing as the WCS/GBC administrators believe before God is the the right thing to do.


Legality Of Fact Finding Investigations

In a previous matter, I hired Michael J. Anthony of Anthony Law to represent me in a case where a previous client of mine owed $43,515.00 in unpaid invoices. We discovered evidence of fraud against me by that previous client and the multi-million dollar company that was using the software that I created and was not fully paid for. Proving fraud would permit a jury to also allow for reimbursement of my attorney fees in that case. After I spent nearly $45,000.00 in attorney fees, Mr. Anthony informed me that the attorneys representing the multi-million dollar company told Mr. Anthony that they were going to make me “jump through every legal hoop possible” to prevent the case from going to a jury. Mr. Anthony also told me that it is perfectly acceptable and legal for me to perform my own “Fact Finding Investigation” in regard to crimes committed against me.

During my “Fact Finding Investigation” in that matter, I contacted the multi-million dollar company President, Vice Presidents, Founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operating Officer (COO), and Senior Advisors as well as their customers who were possibly using the software that I created for which I owned the copyright to. I made those contacts by U.S. mail, email, and telephone calls. This led to my receiving full payment for the unpaid invoices and no “Telecommunications Harassment” claims were ever made against me; precisely as Mr. Anthony told me there could not be.


Intimidation, Entrapment, Business Disruption By SZD Law Firm (now Ice Miller LLP)

During my “Fact Finding Investigation” about the crimes committed against my family and me by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney Daniel R. Swetnam, I contacted the Supreme Court of Ohio. Amy Stone at the Supreme Court of Ohio suggested that I find out if it is the policy of SZD to defend their lawyers who are guilty of serious misconduct. I also wanted to find out if anyone else at SZD, besides Daniel R. Swetnam, was aware of these serious crimes before October 17, 2007 when the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney got caught committing these crimes.

Nearly two months after I asked SZD these two questions (the first as suggested by the Supreme Court of Ohio) about the crimes committed by the SZD lawyer Daniel R. Swetnam against my family and me and thousands of others involving millions of dollars, the SZD law firm filed ridiculous and frivolous “Telecommunication Harassment” complaints against me on July 14, 2009. Clearly, these complaints were made simply because some lawyers are under the impression that just because they are familiar with the court system and have friends within it, they believe that they can use it and abuse it to intimidate and manipulate those of us who they deliberately deceive and defraud in regard to the safety and upbringing of our children. Not to mention an utter waste of the court’s time and taxpayer dollars for such ridiculous claims. The sequence of events of the intimidation, entrapment, and business disruption by SZD follow:

MAY 17, 2009

On 5/17/2009, I followed the suggestion by Amy Stone at the Supreme Court of Ohio. In separate email messages to each SZD lawyer (149 total), I presented the publicly available information and asked following question in regard to such serious misconduct:

“Can you tell me if it is the policy of Schottenstein, Zox, and Dunn to defend their lawyers who commit such serious crimes against children and consumers, or if the lawyer is on his own to defend himself in a court of law?”

In that email message, I fully identified myself and I did not harass or threaten anyone or anything nor did I suggest or request anything in regard to sexual activity as indicated in Ohio Code “2917.21 Telecommunications harassment”.

MAY 21, 2009 (COUNT #1)

On 5/21/2009, while preparing to write my second and “Final Question” for the SZD lawyers during my “Fact Finding Investigation”, I received a letter from Jay Dingledy of SZD threatening me with a ridiculous and frivolous claim of Telecommunications Harassment.

I responded to that ridiculous claim and asked my second and final question as I had planned and as Michael J. Anthony of Anthony Law previously advised me was perfectly acceptable and legal to do so:

“Besides Dan Swetnam, was anyone else at SZD aware of these crimes against the consumers before October 2007?”

MAY 28, 2009 (COUNT #2 and COUNT #3)

On 5/28/2009, I discovered a Federal Express note on my front door, which informed me that there was a letter waiting for me that I needed to sign for. I called Federal Express and was informed that the letter was from SZD.

As a courtesy before leaving on my planned business trip that day to Washington D.C., I called Jay Dingledy to address that unknown Federal Express letter. After Jay Dingledy informed me that he did not write that letter, I apologized and he said “apology accepted” (COUNT #2). I then got what I was led to believe was “permission” from Jay Dingledy to call Dan Swetnam about the matter.

I called Dan Swetnam and the Secretary told me that he was on another line and that he should be available in about 10 minutes (COUNT #3 ?).
That telephone conversation resides in the audio recording SwetnamSecretary.mp3.

I then called back in about 10 minutes as I was told to but neither the Secretary nor Dan answered and only the voice mail responded. I continued to call occasionally expecting to reach Dan. Neither Dan nor the Secretary answered so I had to leave a voice mail message (COUNT #3 ?) informing Dan that I would be calling him back as a courtesy to find out if the letter was from him and, if so, what it was about.
That voice mail message resides in the audio recording SwetnamVoiceMail.mp3.
Dan never did answer the phone nor did he respond to my voice mail message and I had to cancel my business trip to Washington D.C..

JUNE 3, 2009 (COUNT #4)

The Federal Express letter later received was written by SZD lawyer Dan Swetnam in which he claimed that the publicly available information distributed to others (who have a right to know and who may have additional information about those or other crimes) contains false information.

Since I had gotten “permission” from Jay Dingledy earlier to contact Dan in regard to that letter, I responded to Dan’s claim and identified the only error ever discovered, which was a date of 1998 versus 1999 in one of the Columbus Dispatch newspaper stories. I also politely asked the following question in regard to the information distributed to those who have a right to know and who may have additional information about these or other crimes committed by the administrators at WCS/GBC and/or the SZD lawyer:

"For the record, please identify any information that you believe is “false”."

We received no response from Dan, which indicates that there is no false information and no libel; otherwise, Dan surely would have responded.

SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) INTIMIDATION AND ENTRAPMENT

Six (6) weeks later, while working for my current client in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, my wife called to ask if she could sign for a letter for me. I told her to sign for that letter which was a Summons for me to appear in Columbus, Ohio in court to answer to the charges of four (4) counts described as “TELEPHONE HARRASSMNT” that were filed on July 14, 2009 by Jay Dingledy of the SZD law firm.

As described in the sequence of events above, all counts are both ridiculous and frivolous. The last three counts show that Jay Dingledy is apparently guilty of entrapment because he told me “apology accepted” in regard to COUNT #2 and I got “permission” from him to contact Dan Swetnam in regard to COUNT #3 and thus COUNT #4 after I simply responded to Swetnam contacting me.

In regard to possible entrapment by Dan Swetnam for COUNT #3, it is odd that the Secretary told me that Dan was on another line and that I should call back in 10 minutes (as recorded) but then no one answered the phone afterwards. Apparently, the purpose of that was an attempt to stack up even more ridiculous and frivolous complaints against me. Entrapment for COUNT #4 was also apparent after Swetnam contacted me and I simply responded to him by asking him to identify any “false” information, which he refused to do. Swetnam refused to answer that question not only because there is no “false” information (except for that which I identified) but also, apparently, as an effort to induce me to ask him that question yet again for which without any doubt, Dingledy would have added yet another ridiculous and frivolous complaint against me.

The ridiculous and frivolous claims and entrapment by Jay Dingledy and Dan Swetnam of SZD have severely disrupted my business (e.g. Washington D.C. and now Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) and have aggravated the harms caused by the crimes committed by the SZD lawyer Dan Swetnam and the WCS/GBC administrators. Not to mention the waste of the court’s time and taxpayer dollars for those bogus claims as SZD continues with their attempts to intimidate and threaten me after at least one of their lawyers committed serious crimes against me and my family and thousands of others involving millions of dollars continuously and deliberately for many years.


Intimidation By Judge James E. Green

I was summoned to appear before Judge James E. Green on 7/28/2009 about those bogus Telecommunication Harassment claims filed by the law firm SZD (now Ice Miller LLP). After I plead NOT guilty to those ridiculous and frivolous claims, Judge Green was apparently attempting to intimidate me by bragging that his campaign manager for the last 14 years is the SZD lawyer Daniel R. Swetnam, who took part in those crimes against my family and me.

When I informed Judge Green that these invalid and frivolous claims, by those who committed crimes against me and my family, are severely disrupting my business currently being conducted in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Judge Green told me in with a smirk on his face that I had better be getting on my way back to Pittsburgh.

That courtroom conversation was recorded. A portion of that audio recording is given in JudgeBrags.mp3.


Intimidation By Prosecutor Robert S. Tobias

The Director of Prosecution Resources, Robert S. Tobias, claimed the following in an email message to me on 7/31/2009 in regard to the crimes committed by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney Daniel R. Swetnam:

“Our response to your inquiry has not changed. Your claim was never denied by our office. Rather, you chose not to follow up with the Worthington Police Department as we had advised you to do.”

That is completely untrue. I informed Mr. Tobias that I did indeed follow up (several times) with the Worthington Police Department as I was advised to do and that the response from John W. Slaughter of the Criminal Investigations Unit of the Worthington Division of Police about this matter was basically:

"Additionally, if at the time you felt deceived or defrauded, you could have simply removed your child from the school."

As I informed Mr. Tobias, evidently someone deliberately mislead Mr. Slaughter or else this "Investigator" does not understand that we were clearly being "deceived" and we did not know it (refer to the definition of the word "Deception"), otherwise, as any decent parent would have done, we would have immediately removed our child from the school and stopped paying money to WCS but we were obviously being "defrauded" (refer to the definition of the word "Fraud").

Then during a telephone conversation, Mr. Tobias told me very boldly in a very intimidating manner that I had better get a very good lawyer because I am facing 2 years in prison (as well as a $4,000 fine) and that he is going to make the incident of the crimes committed against my family and me by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney completely unrelated to my asking SZD about those crimes (as the Supreme Court of Ohio suggested that I do). Evidently, Mr. Tobias is going to try to force the jury to only hear what SZD wants them to hear and not about the reason I contacted SZD as was suggested by Amy Stone of the Supreme Court of Ohio and as Michael J. Anthony of Anthony Law informed me was perfectly acceptable and legal to do so.


Corruption At Prosecutor's Office

The Prosecutor’s Office approved of and accepted the ridiculous and frivolous Telecommunication Harassment claims made by SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) against me after I merely asked SZD questions about the crimes that their lawyer Daniel R. Swetnam committed against me and my family and thousands of others involving millions of dollars continuously and deliberately for many years. Three of the four bogus claims were the result of entrapment by the SZD lawyer Jay Dingledy as described previously. That Prosecutors Office is now prosecuting me for those bogus claims for which I am spending thousands of dollars in attorney fees and am possibly facing 2 years in prison as well as thousands of dollars in fines.
Note that I did not endanger a single child, I did not deceive or defraud anyone, I did not cover up any crimes, nor did I participate in a conspiracy. I simply asked questions that the Supreme Court of Ohio suggested that I ask and that my previous attorney told me was perfectly acceptable and legal to ask.

However, the Prosecutor’s Office will not approve of nor accept our case against the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney for the serious crimes that they committed continuously and deliberately against me and my family and thousands of other consumers. The Prosecutor’s Office refuses to do so even though there is indisputable and overwhelming evidence against the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney as reported in the Columbus Dispatch newspaper and others beginning on October 17, 2007.
Note that the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney deliberately put thousands of students at "big-time liable" “risk” (their words) with several repeat child molesters led into temptation to molest again, while deceiving and defrauding we parents about it, while the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney conspired to cover up their crimes (i.e. Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups) continuously for many years when they got caught.


Conclusion

These intimidations, entrapment, and serious business disruptions caused by SZD (now Ice Miller LLP), and the intimidations by Judge James E. Green and Prosecutor Robert S. Tobias, and the corruption at the Prosecutor’s Office are clearly an effort to prevent the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD attorney Daniel R. Swetnam from being fully discovered and held accountable in a criminal court of law.

However, it is our civic and moral responsibility to hold the administrators at WCS and GBC along with their SZD attorney accountable in a criminal court of law for these crimes. We must never cower to or be complacent about such dangerous criminal actions and corruption as we continue to stand up for the dignity of the students who were deliberately put at “big-time liable” “risk” by the WCS/GBC administrators and for the dignity of God who never ever would approve of such a thing as the WCS/GBC administrators believe before God is the the right thing to do.
