There is no way to prevent asshole sheriffs and pols from stepping on people to build up their careers.

At least this time, some mud got tossed back at them.

This came from the Phoenix board, but gives you an idea what happens when an overzealous DA runs wild !

Unfortunately he says he is not going to file a suit.  But disbarred Thomas already probably has many and would be too costly to sue vs unlikely to collect even if won.

Does not appear to help the rest of the almost 100 that took DD felonies and now 39 Phoenix Temple folks.

I posted the original link - so far does not seem reported in the Phoenix media just his prior hometown.

The back story is apparently he was misidentified at a meet-and-greet as someone else.  He also was friends with Paul the DD founder and used his credit card Paul loaned him for a travel emergency.

The key is he admits to being a customer and posting reviews so should have only had a misdemeanor and 15 days in Tent City - not a felony as he hard no part in running DD but was pressured into taking a felony plea vs scared into much longer prison term if didn't.  Exactly the issue now with Phoenix Temple 39 - big status conference on Monday and new judge for trials for those that don't plea - don't many will - 1 so far to a felony

I dont want to post details in pubic.  You know where.. up to update 38 and archive is 130 pages just on the Temple.

Judge a bit upset at Monday status conference, arrest warrent on one even with attorney there, no change in attorney for one that couldn't get him to return her calls and had just a few minutes to decide on a felony plea etc.  37 of 39 looks like going to trial which starts 8/24.  Great deal is going on 37 different attorneys vs State of Arizona some good some terrible per gals.

Glad I am not from there...   DA's think they can take advantage of so many uneducated citizens there. If this was NY or DC, many of these punks would have been disbarred years ago!
