Supreme Failures In Ohio
As documented by several publicly available sources, Scott J. Drexel was fired by the State Bar of California as Chief Trial Counsel, the equivalent position Drexel currently holds in Ohio. As the facts show, Ohio needs to also fire Scott Drexel.
The email message below was sent to The Supreme Court of Ohio Disciplinary Counsel Scott J. Drexel after Drexel failed to fulfill his responsibility to investigate and disbar Ohio lawyer Daniel R. Swetnam. As the irrefutable publicly available evidence shows, Swetnam and his clients at Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) and Grace Brethren Church (GBC) got caught during their 10-year Conspiracy of Child Endangerment, Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups that they committed deliberately and willfully against thousands of consumers involving millions of dollars, regarding the several WCS/GBC repeat child sex offenders (two who blamed and drugged their victims) including the WCS Superintendent who claims he only had an “inappropriate emotional attachment” with his victim(s).

Sorry it took so long for me to respond to your letter of January 20, 2015.
You are incorrect. There was only one grievance filed to disbar Daniel R. Swetnam (0011022) after Swetnam and his clients at Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) and Grace Brethren Church (GBC) got caught harboring several known repeat child sex offenders while Swetnam and WCS/GBC deliberately and willfully conspired to deceive and defraud thousands of us parents about it for over 10 years involving millions of dollars. The evidence of those crimes is all publicly available, as provided by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper and several other sources (including audio recordings of those who got caught), as documented on the Internet web site ABCsOfBetrayal.com.
The first letter was the original grievance.
Other letters were communications with Amy C. Stone (0059158) who requested additional evidence that the Supreme Court of Ohio had the responsibility to simply ask Swetnam and his clients under oath in a court of law.
Amy was basically having me do her job for her as she also suggested that I should contact the Schottenstein, Zox, and Dunn (SZD) (now Ice Miller LLP) law firm, that Swetnam works for, to find out if SZD defends their lawyers who are guilty of serious misconduct.
Since Amy suggested that I should contact SZD to get an answer to that question, it was crucial to also find out if anyone else at SZD knew that Swetnam was committing those serious crimes with his clients.
As you surely know, for politely asking those two questions, I was unjustly prosecuted, severely harassed for many months by SZD and Swetnam, and eventually put in jail till a judge released me and dropped the entire ridiculous matter against me.
That was clearly a case of Malicious Prosecution that failed to intimidate me into not fulfilling my responsibility to warn the public who has the right to know the publicly available information so they can protect their families. And it was a gross waste of taxpayer dollars.
See ‘Corruption Exposed By A Parent’ at ABCsOfBetrayal.com/Corruption.htm and ‘Your Tax Dollars At Work’ at ABCsOfBetrayal.com/TaxDollars.htm.
Conveniently, those court proceedings acquired the publicly available proof in Swetnam’s own words while under oath that Amy requested from me.
The final letter, ‘Grievance Filed To Disbar Daniel R. Swetnam’ documented at ABCsOfBetrayal.com/Disbar.htm, is associated with the original grievance and includes the additional evidence that Amy Stone said was needed to disbar Swetnam.
That is, the court transcript statement of Swetnam acknowledging under oath in a court of law that he was indeed the attorney giving legal advice to his clients when he and his clients got caught during their 10-year Conspiracy of Child Endangerment, Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-ups.
Your "opinion" that "there is not substantial, credible evidence" to investigate and disbar Daniel R. Swetnam is absurd as any reasonable person would agree because Swetnam provided the irrefutable evidence himself in newspaper statements and under oath in a court of law. Examples follow:
As documented by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper about one of the several WCS/GBC repeat child sex offenders:"We think Dwayne is a great teacher, a great coach. He's an outstanding person to have here,"Swetnam stated that he and his clients didn't want to “throw” their WCS/GBC admitted repeat child sex offender (who blamed his 13 year old victim) "under the bus" "or anyone else overboard" (e.g. their later-convicted WCS/GBC repeat child sex offender (who drugged his victim with Aleve and red wine) and the WCS Superintendent who claimed he only had an “inappropriate emotional attachment” with his victim(s)).
said the school's attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam.
"We didn't want to arbitrarily throw someone under the bus."
"There's no dispute that Dwayne acknowledged and confessed his sins,"
"We recognize that all of us are sinners. We're not going to just throw him or anyone else overboard."
However, Swetnam was willing to deliberately and willfully “throw” the students "under the bus" with the several WCS/GBC repeat child sex offenders led into temptation to molest children yet again.
And Swetnam was willing to deliberately and willfully “throw” we the parents "overboard" while conspiring to deceive and defraud us about endangering our children with those WCS/GBC repeat child sex offenders.
And as also documented in that Columbus Dispatch newspaper story, the WCS/GBC administrators were secretly recorded during one of their cover-up meetings in which GBC Executive Pastor Jim Augspurger stated that they believe “before God” that it is “the right thing” to deliberately and willfully put the students at “big-time liable” “risk” with those repeat child sex offenders.
Despite what Swetnam falsely claims, there is indeed a “dispute” in that the “confession” by that repeat child sex offender is when the Conspiracy to Deceive and Defraud by Swetnam and his clients began back in 1996.
The few people who were present during that “confession” have publicly stated that they were misled into believing that the “confession” was for an adulterous affair with a consenting adult and NOT for repeatedly molesting a 13-year-old student for which the repeat child sex offender later blamed her for it as also documented in that Columbus Dispatch newspaper story.
As documented in court transcripts, Swetnam was asked the following under oath:“Now, if I ask you if you gave legal advice to Worthington Christian Schools or Grace Brethren Church about any teachers or staff or administrators with regard to any allegations of child molestation or inappropriate behavior with a student or inappropriate emotional feelings for a student, would your answer be now that you can't without violating an attorney/client privilege?”Swetnam's response was:“Yes. That goes to the essence of the attorney/client privilege.”That is, if Swetnam was not serving as their attorney providing legal advice during those crimes, he could not claim attorney/client privilege as he did.
The Supreme Court of Ohio web page at http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/DisciplinarySys/ clearly states that:"The Office of Disciplinary Counsel investigates allegations and initiates complaints concerning ethical misconduct and/or mental illness of judges or attorneys..."Your ignoring of the facts and your failure to fulfill your responsibility to investigate and disbar Daniel R. Swetnam has been documented.
As documented by many publicly available sources, you were fired by the State Bar of California; evidently, Ohio needs to do the same.
It is worthy to note that in June 2017, for harboring one child sex offender (Jerry Sandusky), the Penn State president Graham Spanier, vice president Gary Schultz, and athletic director Tim Curley were sentenced to prison for child endangerment.
Swetnam and the WCS/GBC administrators got caught harboring several repeat child sex offenders (who blamed and drugged their victims) for over 10 years while deliberately and willfully conspiring to deceive and defraud thousands of consumers about it involving millions of dollars.
Clearly, Swetnam and the WCS/GBC administrators must be prosecuted and sentenced to prison as well.
