Surprise, Arizona police officer, Hector Heredia, issued a written email threat against Huminski under the color of AZ Rev. Stat. § 13-2921 stating as follows:
This is Officer H. Heredia #2019 from the Surprise Police Department. I would like to inform you that Mr. Michael [sic] Nelson filed a
complaint with this department today. Mr. Huminski I would like to set up an interview with you reference this
allegation. My scheduled work days are Wednesday through Saturday 6:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Please do not have any type of contact with either Michael [sic] Nelson or Anthony Tsontakislaw until I speak with you and hear your side. You can call me at 623-222-4262 to set up an interview or leave a message when you will be able to come during the mentioned work days and hours. Thank-you. (emphasis added)
The Heredia email was issued the day prior to a civil hearing in an Arizona court case Huminski v. Nelson. Anthony Tsontakislaw[sic] was the attorney for defendant Mr. Nelson. The civil matter was to secure a restraining order against Justin Nelson to protect Huminski, his wife and his minor niece and nephew who Nelson admittedly showed a sadistic interest in. Mr. Nelson issued death threats against Huminski and his wife. Justin M. Nelson (murdered in October, 2012 related to this litigation) admitted he was the closest friend and advisor of Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and discussed matters related to this litigation at family breakfast with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, allegedly putting Huminski
in the crosshairs of Sheriff Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for
retaliation. Mr. Nelson indicated that he was a practicing sadist and wish to have sadistic
contact with Huminski’s minor niece and nephew in Connecticut. Nelson had made efforts to track down Huminski’s niece and nephew in Connecticut.
Mr. Nelson was a law enforcement insider in Arizona and a close friend and advisor of Sheriff Arpaio, Officer Heredia engaged in the threat against civil litigation in solidarity
with Sheriff Arpaio and to protect the Sheriff’s close friend, Justin Nelson, a law enforcement insider. Noteworthy is the issue that Mr. Nelson’s attorney, Anthony
Tsontakis, is legislative counsel for the Arizona legislature and also a strong supporter and friend of Sheriff Arpaio. Upon information and belief, Officer Heredia issued the threat prohibiting litigation with Mr. Tsontakis to support a politically well-connected legislative counsel Anthony Tsontakis and a close friend and advisor of Sheriff Arpaio.
