STATEMENT OF FACTSPolice Entrapment
On August 03, 2009, the Tucson Police Department was called to my residence, as they had on at least four other occasions, to enforce a PimaCounty Superior Court Order regarding the custody of my roommates’
minor child, and the failure of the child’s father to return the child to themother’s residence as per the schedule set forth by Order of the Court.
On at least three of these occasions (1) the investigating officer had readthe Court Order and verified in fact the child had not been returned as setforth by the schedule ordered by the Court, (2) the investigating officerhad gone to the father’s house to explain to the father his requirement toobey the Order of the Court, (3) the child was subsequently returned by the father to the mother’s house.
On one occasion the investigating officer returned the child himself in aTPD vehicle.
On August 03, 2009 the investigating officer, (Officer Dormand, #48380)responded as set forth in paragraph 4 and 5(1).
However; subsequent to reading of the Court Order, Officer Dormand toldmy roommate she (Officer Dormand) would drive my roommate to herformer husband’s residence to recover her child, even though on allprevious occasions either my roommate’s former husband or a policeofficer had brought the child home.
My roommate came into our home to get my shoes and bag and explainedto me what was happening. However; when she exited and approachedOfficer Dorman, the officer suddenly changed her mind. She said. “You’llhave to follow me in your car. I am not a taxi service.”
My roommate explained to Officer Dormand (1) she was legally blind andtherefore could not drive the family car and (2) the car’s registration hadexpired.
Officer Dormand made some cell phone calls and then became insistent.
Officer Dormand asked my roommate if I (Roy Warden) would drive thecar. Officer Dormand said if we didn’t follow her in the family car she would not go to my roommate’s former husband’s residence and my roommate would not get her son that night.
Due to concerns regarding personal safety, my “roommate” has requested her name not be included in this public document.
