Kellett faces suspension

 

We have just been informed that the Bar Panel for the Main Board of Overseers of the Bar have sent the recommendation to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court that Hancock Country Prosecutor Mary Kellett have her license to practice law suspended for prosecutorial misconduct.

The panel found Kellett, in her prosecution of Vladek Filler, guilty of “failing to make timely disclosure of the existence of evidence, suppressing evidence, trying to mislead a jury, failing to employ reasonable skill and care, engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice and engaging in conduct unworthy of an attorney.”

This is according to a just released announcement by the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

The ruling means that Kellett will face yet another hearing at the Supreme Judicial Court to determine what amounts to the future of her legal career.

More details on this will be made available as they come in. In the meantime, we are cracking open a cold one here.

Or three.

Score one for justice, for a change.

    Unfortunately I will be late to the “cold one” celebration. But what I lack in punctuality I will make up for in consumption.
    Reading this story is a great way to start the day.

    To all of those that participated, you have made the world a little better place. Don’t ever doubt that.

    To Mr. Filler (if he reads this):
    Sir, I can only imagine what you are feeling right now. The justice system in this country is screwed up. But we the people can still make a difference. While we celebrate we have not forgotten that this is more your victory than anyone else’s. God bless you and your family.

    This is on the ground activism. Those who have participated have made a real impact in the real world. Congratulations to you all. This is what happens when men show up to the gender war.

    Someone once said that “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.” I say evil gets its day in court when the MRM gets involved. We are no longer a few guys on the net. We are a force to be reckoned with. Im thinking of sending this story to every D.A. office in my state as a reminder that someone is watching.

    Paul, thanks for the service you’ve done in this site.

    Love the single downvote on every post in this thread.

    Hi Mary.

      That’s funny!

      As I was coming down the comments I was wondering if a prohibitionist had found the internet somehow and was upset with our desire to consume alcohol.

      Seemed like some extra selective downvoting until I got further in.

    Tears of rage…tears of joy. Witness to a not so small miracle.

    What? There’s hope?

    …there is hope?

  • Dick Almighty

    wow.. is there a way to see who the cunt is that disliked all the comments? Maybe trace the IP address. Who wants to take bets that it is someone from the Hancock DA’s office?

    • TheBiboSez

      I just finished reading the decision.

      My GOD, they clobbered her.

      Imagine how Emma Claire would feel if her fellow feminists turned on her and recommended she be expelled from University. That is sort of what just happened to Mary Kellett, esq-not, who doesn’t even have neoteny to protect her any more.

    • Laddition

      any news on the length of the ‘period of suspension’?

      I can’t believe that she wasn’t disbarred when found guilty of such defiance and such misdeeds.

  • TPH

    Hoist a glass and toast victory everyone! It took a lot, I mean a lot of people keeping up the pressure to bring Kellet to account for her immoral and illegal behavior as a prosecutor.

    This victory is a perfect example of what we need to do as a movement: Out the bigots, hate advocates, misandrists, and legal despots that grind up boys and men for merely existing.

    Celebrate this victory today and never forget that it took the collaborative action of many to win the battle.

    That’s our key strength as a men’s movement: Collaboration and the willingness to legally savage and shine the light of truth on those who perpetrate injustice, hatred, and misandry against boys and men.

    Kudos to all that made this victory possible.

  • oldfart

    “Ms. Kellett’s own expert, Fernald R. Rochelle, Esq., testified that she appeared “stubborn” and as if she were “bucking the court” during her testimony. This willful recalcitrance makes it appear likely that Ms. Kellett would repeat this unfairly prejudicial conduct.”

    Thanks for the link Paul,it is the best reading I’ve had in a very long time.
    She not only overstepped,she did so criminally,and is not remorseful.

    As for her award for ‘advocacy’ I’m sure that’s rad-fem work with expense voucher slush funds.
    (VAWA pays well)
    My local prosecutor is very well known in the women’s shelters,he knows how to butter his bread.
    They do love to talk shop in fine restaurants many times per week.

    To your feminists, what follows is just another example of a typical mother (the son is her sole “property”) and how they are supported by the family courts, this one happens to be in Mary Kellet’s Maine.
    If you wonder where some of the anger that you see on these AFVM comments comes from, read on. Alexis Wright-alleged prostitute-with 100’s of clients, and having made national news continues to retain custody of her son. Today’s Portland Press Herald reports: “…Wright has been charged with 106 counts, including promotion of prostitution, engaging in prostitution, invasion of privacy, conspiracy, tax offenses and receiving welfare benefits when ineligible…”; there are other news reports of her posing naked with her 7-year old son.
    I would think that for the son’s sake the mother might just give up custody…minimally while she is dealing with all these criminal charges-NOPE. I would think that the Family court in its best wisdom would order an immediate change in custody to the father until minimally Madame Wright sorts out her very major legal problems-NOPE. The following story in today’s 12/11/12 Portland Press Herald shows what is important to the court-denying access to the proceedings, hiding the record; that’s the only order that came today.
    Women should be in an uproar over the treatment of this child-I hear nothing. The mother should be ashamed, however I’m sure she’s a victim; these courts, just filled with corrupt feminist ideas of decency, equality, and justice. Maine is a shithole for boys and men. Remember that when you are making any vacation plans that might include Maine-AVOID!
    Imagine how the rest of us fathers are treated in your typical everyday non-published cases.

  • Cultural_Expat

    And to reply to myself :>), this a Portland Press Herald and Maine Justice system production. The Headline is “Court Sheilds Zumba instructors custody case from Media Scrutinity”

    and in the first description of Alexa-charged with 106 counts of prostitution-is …”central figure in Kennebunk’s prostitution scandal…” Hello Femjournalist, writer of this article, Scott Dolan.

    Alexis Wright is not publicly known because she is a Zumba instructor….she’s “alleged” Head Whore in charge. Shes alleged to have over 150 clients I believe and has made allegedly 100’s of thousands of dollar. My guess is Scott Dolan majored in journalism with a minor in womens studies. The reporting in the Portland Press Herald like the Bangor Daily News….horrendously tilted towards female offenders.

  • Dusty

    This is my first comment in almost two years. First, congrats to Paul and everyone else who helped out. Here are the lrics to a song which sum up the situation nicely:

    I lied right your face
    And I’ll burn eternally in flames
    Instinct has failed me now
    Enslaved by my deceit
    Lies sink in like gasoline
    Saturate my body
    One more spark of dishonesty and that be the end of me
    Damned in flames
    Lies engulf me
    Lies burn me
    Lies purge me
    Lies free me

    Let us hope that Kellet’s lies free her of her duty.

  • chris3337

    GREAT news. Well done Paul and all those who never gave up persuing this individual. The persistence and adherence to the truth paid off. I hope any other malicious prosecutors out there will take note that men and women are are now watching and will not standby in silence any longer.

    This is the news story from the Bangor paper. Bill Trotter is vanilla as always but he did post the actual 7 charges against her.

  • yinyangbalance

    Hey hey! Its not over yet. The FAT lady hasn’t sung yet my friends. The Panel has merely “made a recommendation” to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Its not a demand, its not an order, it is a recommendation. For all we know, Maine Supreme Judicial Court may merely issue a slap on the wrist and call it a day. Kellet has been the reason for Maine’s atrocious high rate of false rape convictions and is active in legally targeting men for their sex. She brings in a lot of VAWA money to her district for these reasons….to me it looks like she is a Feminist SuperStar, a Federal Government Darling helping to provide the environment for tomorrows bastard children that will be corralled into the empire’s army.

    • Dick Almighty

      You are right that it isn’t over yet. But when the Overseers of the Bar make a recommendation against one of their own and it has to go to the SC, this is some serious shit. Not only could the SC suspend her, they could disbar her with enough pressure. According to Dilworth, Maine leads the US in VAWA cases prosecuted. This stat should change very soon as now the entire legal community is watching what happens to Kellett. Current President of the AAML is well aware of what is going on with Kellett. I made sure he knew :-)

      • yinyangbalance

        I dont know, it seems to me that we are living in a state of affairs much like black people of the south back in the 50’s where nearly everyone in significant legal positions personally knew the members of the local KKK, and suddenly they are faced with a ‘recommendation’ for the suspension of their own for such crimes….uhhh….hmmm. Dont know what to make of this just yet. I will sit back and watch.

  • http://www.CanadaCourtWatch.com Attila L. Vinczer

    This is huge news. Great work gentlemen.

    Regrettably there are hundreds if not thousands of prosecutors like Marry Kellett that continue to wreak havoc on innocent men, such as Lone Wolf who I need to find a way to be vindicated and freed from 6 years of prison on a false rape conviction and a gross miscarriage of justice.

    The prison psychiatrist is already telling him his wife will leave him and that he will call CAS/CPS to ensure he never goes near his children ever again.

    No wonder he saw 5 men in 8 weeks commit suicide when he was previously awaiting bail pending appeal.
