The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin reports (June 22, 2017) the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Avalon Betts-Gaston got a fair trial in 2015 despite friction between attorney Jennifer Bonjean and Judge Charles Norgle. It upheld the woman’s conviction.
Its Tuesday opinion cites Bonjean once suggesting in court that the judge was on the side of prosecutors, asking if he’d like to take off his robe and “come down…and do the government’s job.” And it cites the judge once making a disapproving facial expression as the defendant testified.
But the court concluded that nothing Norgle did would’ve led jurors to infer the judge believed the defendant was guilty.
FINALLY, it is now over; I bless and release them ALL
On February 15, 2017 the oral appeal for Avalon Betts Gaston was heard before The Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit; Docket 16-2034.
This was really interesting for it appeared that everything said to the court (Judge Hamilton was the speaker for the court) by Avalon’s attorney DID NOT represent what I personally heard or saw. Now this is just my opinion of course and I am not a lawyer however I don’t understand how she could have behaved so disrespectfully to Judge Norgle and gotten not only away with it but then try to tell the court HE did all of the things I saw HER do; I don’t get it. Like I said, this is my opinion, I can only say what I saw and heard but Judge Norgle exhibited the patience and tolerance I could never had done! I saw this lawyer make faces, yell, disrespect the court constantly and now before the Court of Appeals she is saying Judge Norgle did what I saw her do; come on now. She must be a good lawyer to be this bold and have the nerve to put her actions on him; WOW!!!!
It’s too bad the Court of Appeals doesn’t read my web site or blog.
Avalon Betts-Gaston is currently at Alderson FPC Inmate # 43787-424 release date 10/19/2020. Sometimes I wonder if all of this could have been avoided if she had (1) told the complete truth, (2) apologized to the victims, and (3) made restitution. Well, at this point all I can do is bless her and pray that this will not happen again.
There are many subjects I am interested in and I would like this blog to cover various points and issues. I believe that opinions should be voiced without fear of retribution from anyone but I must stress RESPECT must be given at all times. I want to explore different avenues of thought and solutions.
My blog will start off with mortgage fraud for that is what happened to me but that will not be the primary topic opened for discussion. If it is on your mind this can be a place to talk about it.
This site is for informational purposes only. The goal is to save others from the pain that we the victims have experienced and to show who some of the players are that were involved. The people here are small compared to those who have never been prosecuted for the mortgage frauds that ripped at this country. I am not sure if any of the major players responsible for the mortgage frauds that hit this country have been indicted let alone found guilty but at this point, I do not believe they ever will be.
As I have stated previously on my website I am not a lawyer nor do I give out advice. I strongly suggest that if you feel victimized you contact a lawyer, the state or your county for help. Keep good records and be prepared to be active to the point of being a pain in someone’s rear end. DO NOT GIVE UP!
Please voice whatever you may want to talk about and I will try my best to give us a smooth conversation flow.
