Did the Witness Commit Perjury? Or is it Fraud?

Because there are a wealth of sources out there that are posting on the testimony, I am not going to do that. (I would recommend the WRCB-TV site, as it seems to be pretty complete.) Nonetheless, there was a disturbing exchange that I believe merits scrutiny because it goes to the very heart of the case: lying in court.

While I am not going to name the witnesses who testified yesterday, I do believe that what they said is pertinent to this case, not as testimony of what happened, but rather an example of people who are used to having their own way. Now, everyone knows the names of people involved, but I am not going to put them here, not to protect anyone, but rather to deflect any claims that I am blogging on this case in order to defame them.

As I stated before, it was clear from hearing and seeing everything that was on the news, the women are people who tend to be in charge, and it is clear that they do not like being challenged. One of the mothers, when asked by the defense about her daughter taking acting lessons, replied that she had not. From the Catoosa County News:
The defense asked the witness if her daughter, a child actor, had any formal acting lessons, to which the witness replied no. (Emphasis mine)
Someone sent me the Internet Movie Database (IMBd) link for the child in question. Here is what the girl's resume says about lessons:
Training

* John Robert Powers, Atlanta, GA, Cold Read Techniques, Janet Milstein
* John Robert Powers, Atlanta, GA, Monologues, Janet Milstein
* John Robert Powers, Atlanta, GA, Scene Study, Kwietha Bolden
* John Robert Powers, Atlanta, GA, Commercials, Kwietha Bolden
OK, we now have a problem. If what is on this resume is true, then the woman committed perjury, AND SHE DID IT WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE FROM THE JUDGE BRIAN HOUSE AND PROSECUTORS CHRIS ARNT AND LEN GREGOR. That is because all three of those men are aware of the resume and its contents, and just because House disallowed it as evidence does not make the witness' statements true.

But, there is another problem for this woman. If the information on the resume is false, THEN SHE HAS COMMITTED WIRE FRAUD, a federal crime. People have gone to federal prison for less. Either way, this witness has committed felonies, and there is no way around it, and if the prosecution did not act, THEN ARNT AND GREGOR HAVE SUBORNED PERJURED TESTIMONY, and that also is a crime.

Thus, everyone who was in the courtroom witnessed a felony being committed, and if prosecutors are in on this scam, then they, too, committed felonies by their silence. I am not joking or surmising here, people. Even though the law clearly does not apply in the Lookout Mountain Judicial District, nonetheless the law is the law.

My sense is that House disallowed this information to be put into evidence precisely because he anticipated this witness lying, and Arnt and Gregor vigorously fought it as well, probably for the same reasons. I have said for a long time that all-too-often, prosecutors have been able to get away with committing crimes for which they never are held accountable. (Prosecutors generally are not known for indicting themselves.)

If you want to know why I believe that House is running a kangaroo court and the prosecutors are lying, look no further than this testimony.

Wouldn't be the first time Len Gregor and company have lied to suit their purposes!!!!

It is really sad, when two women who are hell bent on having their way would even go so far as to use their own children to achieve their purpose. For all of those who have believed the lies in this case, I hope you are paying attention to the testimony and all the holes in their stories and outright lies they are telling. Oh what a web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. If anyone has abused these children, it is their mothers and the legal system in Catoosa County. It is my sincere hope when this is over that finally something will be done about this corrupt system in Catoosa County and the Lookout Mt. Judicial System! It has gone on for way too long!!!

The Lamb's and the Wilson's are 2 peas in a pod. The Lambs older child goes to McCallie or Baylor. However they send their girl to Chickamauga. Both families have the money to send their children to GPS or any other private school they want to. They send them to Chickamauga because their these girls stand out. Not because of beauty or academic ability but because of money. Now don't get me wrong I don't know these children's academic abilities and i truly believe that all children are beautiful but if they sent them to a private school everyone there would have that kind of money and they wouldn't be top princess.

CHICKAMAUGA CITY SCHOOL you should be ashamed of yourself. Not because of this trial. I know you have no control over that. You do have control over how you let parents and students act while they are at your school. Kristen Bradley needs to make some changes and take charge of her school. No special treatment because of money.

Thank you William Anderson!! I truly believe God is using you to be the voice, not only for Tonya, but for many others, who have also been victims of this corrupt legal system in Catoosa County. What goes around, comes around and I believe it is happening now. God's timing is not our timing, but His timing is perfect.

Yes, thank you Mr Anderson...I wish there were more like you not afraid to expose corruption. This case is a fine example of how someone can be accused and convicted before a jury trial...and how a trial can have so much dirty work underneath the surface not visible to the jury or public eye. Thanks again Mr Anderson...a voice for the truth.

I was the one who submitted that link to you yesterday, so glad you used it! I hope the defense team picks up on this

I don't think the problem is that defense isn't picking this stuff up, the problem is that the judge doesn't seem to allow any evidence from the defense. Everything that could help Tonya is being thrown out.

William L. Anderson said...

That is correct. House did not allow it into the record and into testimony. Again, it is my belief he is protecting the prosecutors and trying to rig a conviction.

We just all need to pray that the jury can see through this travesty. However, if they are truly staying away from the news and the internet, they might not really see all that is happening. However, surely they can see the lies being told by those whom the prosecution has called to the stand.

I'd assume the defense would need a means to confirm the source of the IMDB to introduce it.

Since they are aware of it, I'd be curious if the John Robert Powers is on the witness list. I suppose they could just call him for rebuttal, not certain how the rules work on that in Georgia (or House's court!).

The parents involved in these accusations should lose custody of their own children for putting them through this torture. How insane to have your child "examined" in this manner without just cause. Imagine the horror as a young girl.

John Robert Powers is an older, well respected modeling/talent agency with multiple offices, not an individual although that may be the name of the company founder.

Here is the URL for the Atlanta office where the kid took classes, per her web page or did not per her mother's court testimony. Non-lawyer that I am, I would think that the truth would be discoverable with appropriate subpoenas.

Hmmm...any relation to John Robert Wiggins?

The Jan. 9, 2008 Walker Co. Messenger newspaper did a front page story on the young actress and her family and states that she took acting classes and lists the teachers at the John Robert Powers school she studied with. Surely this is admissible??http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=368&dat=20080109&id=mU4zAAAAIBAJ&sjid=IyUMAAAAIBAJ&pg=2883,121386

How do you get the truth to the jurors when the judge will not allow pertinent evidence to be presented. He is tying the defenses hands. We all know the truth but the 12 people who will have Tonya's life in their hands are not getting all the truth.
She and others of us have appealed to the higher ups to investigate this mockery of a justice system and they are not held accountable by anyone. How can you not be accountable to anyone, we all are, in our everyday lives, accountable to someone. I just don't get it.

The comments posted about the Principal and Secretary are ridiculous and unfair in that nothing is substantiated by fact. The comment about the Chik fil a biscuits is totally off the mark as GLMS sells these biscuits every Wednesday and anyone can purchase these at will. And to say that someone receives special attention by going to see the administrative staff is laughable as there is an open door policy to ALL kids and they are welcome at anytime!
