Since the entire trial was rigged, thanks to “judge” Brian Outhouse and his tag team of Chris “Alberto” “Facebook” Arnt and Len “The Man” Gregor, the notion that Tonya “beat the system” is a joke, and a sick joke at that. However, believe it or not, the sheriff and his minions now are trying to claim that “judge” Outhouse himself was to blame?
Why? They are telling people that “judge” Outhouse refused to admit “evidence” coming from a male child of Angela Carroll that surely would have convinced the jurors that Tonya Craft was a child molester. This post will demolish that notion and expose the sheriff’s department’s lying.
Now, given what we saw, the notion that “judge” Outhouse would refuse to admit ANYTHING that would have worked against Tonya is a sick joke. This is a “judge” who admitted the following (and more):
- “I just remembered” testimony from Joal Henke that stunk of perjury from the beginning, and had not been entered in any of the documentation presented at Discovery;
- “I just remembered but did not document it” testimony from Suzi Thorne that had not been entered in any of the documentation presented at Discovery;
- The admission of deus ex machina documents from the prosecution and police, such as the “hand rape” allegations that were not shown in discovery. On at least two occasions, “judge” Outhouse permitted the prosecution to enter these documents as though they had been there all along.
This was a “judge” who permitted (in fact, encouraged) prosecutors to lie, to engage in abusive cross-examination of defense witnesses, to mimic the defense, roll their eyes, make catcalls and other loud noises, throw down books, and generally do everything they could to disrupt the defense attorneys. In fact, jurors noted after the trial that they believed “judge” Outhouse was clearly biased against Tonya and her attorneys, and a live feed caught Outhouse denigrating the defense during a conversation in the courtroom with a bailiff.
Thus, for anyone to claim that “judge” Outhouse would have withheld any damning evidence against Ms. Craft is ludicrous. Indeed, the decision to keep out the Carroll allegations came from the prosecutors, who knew that the defense would have shredded the accusations to pieces and further damaged the prosecution’s case.
For that matter, the prosecution still brought up allegations during the trial that Ms. Craft had been sending pictures of herself scantily dressed to a young child, an allegation of which they had no proof. (Gee, the alleged pictures sent via cellphone to the child might have proven to be great evidence, but, alas, "Alberto-Facebook” and “The Man” had nothing, but still continued to make their phantom allegations.)
After the allegations against Tonya became public, Carroll found that her son (who had been in Ms. Craft’s kindergarten class) had taken pictures of his private areas with her cell phone camera. Not surprisingly, she was upset and she then asked her son if Tonya was responsible. The complaint that the defense wrote to U.S. Attorney Sally Yates included the following “investigative summary” from the police:
On 061308 Detective (Steven) Keith received a phone call from Angela Carroll who stated her son, (withheld), was in Ms. Henke’s kindergarten class. Mrs. Carroll stated that she had found pictures of (son’s) privates on her cell phone and when she asked (son) why he took pictures he stated he did not know and stated he and Ms. Henke would always play a game at school where he was the baby. Ms. Carroll wanted (son) to be interviewed.I don’t have any of the interview transcripts available, but I do know some things about the child in question. He is classified as having “special needs” and I have no doubt that any testimony he would have given from the stand would have fallen apart, even before he would have faced cross-examination from Dr. Demosthenes Lorandos.
Detective Tim Deal conducted the interview with (son) at the Greenhouse in Dalton, Georgia.
After the first interview with (son), Detective Keith received a phone call from Angela Carroll. Mrs. Carroll stated that when they arrived home from the interview (son) began crying and he told her that he was afraid to tell the truth during the interview. (Son) told his mother that Tonya told him if he told anyone his mother would go to jail. Jacob told his mother he didn’t tell because he did not want her to go to jail.
Detective Keith advised Detective Deal of the information. This case will be turned over to Detective Deal for further investigation.
My sense also is that the boy’s mother, Ms. Carroll, point-blank asked him if Tonya was “responsible” for this, and I am sure that he agreed. After all, rumors were swirling and a child taking pictures of his privates is understood not to be acceptable behavior. Given the atmosphere at the time, I don’t even blame Ms. Carroll for asking the “Tonya question.”
However, I do become quite suspicious whenever a parent tells police that after the child came home following the interview, he or she has “more to tell.” Such a “disclosure” almost always has the parent’s fingerprints all over it.
There is another important point to make, and that involves the patterns we see in real-live child molesters: they choose either boys or girls. It is very rare that a child molester will molest both boys and girls. In a word, this witness lacked credibility, and the prosecutors knew that his accusations would not fly in court, and if the defense could shred this testimony, then all the prosecution's testimony would be vulnerable.
Unfortunately, now that Tonya has been acquitted, the players of the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit continue to spread the rumor that Tonya had done “something terrible” that should have been permitted to be entered into evidence, something that would have been a “game changer.” This is nonsense, yet another Big Lie told by the Big Liars that populate the courts and “law enforcement” institutions of Northwest Georgia.
Almost from the very beginning, these people knew that Tonya did NOT “do it.” This was not a case of overzealousness by police and prosecutors; it was a frame. It was a crime. The ultimate irony here is that the people of the LMJC who are sworn to uphold and enforce the law are the ones who openly spit on the law.
