36-37 Courthouse Forum – The Judge
July 25, 2008 my son Jonathan a Hart accidentally shot his wife. He was
scared to death and he fled to Texas ( reason for fleeing-past experience here
with cops) . He was arrested in Louisiana on the 28th on his way back to
Georgia to turn self in and take his chances on how the cops would treat
him. He called me at work and I called 911.

His trial was changed two-three times. The trial started July 13th 2009 ( 2
day picking jurors) then had 3 short witness Tuesday afternoon around 2:30-
3 pm on the 14th of July 2009.

The trial was a circus. Our side (defense) was NOT allowed to talk about
law enforcement involvement in their lives( Johnny and Stephanie's) the
judge did that. the trial continued on the DEFENSE done a great job public
defender Charlie Brown and his own investigator and team. witness on state
side was allowed to say whatever they wanted it was OK but the defense
side was told" that's hear say".

The investigator mark Taylor botched up the crime scene investigation-
proved that when they had him on the stand. white county sheriffs office
DID NOT let GBI come in to investigate!!!!!

Johnny's wife was a 911 operator here in this county-she had several affairs
with officers but only ones name was allowed to be mentioned at trial
because they had text messages between Stephanie and Clint that was sexual
our side had them too (defense) that was the only cops name allowed to be
said.

Then Johnny's PREVIOUS Attorney (that he fired) was telling confidential
information to the assistant DA and that man took it to the defense attorney .
The judge called this attorney in for questioning- he was mad about a bar
association complaint we filed against him BUT this attorney Gerald W.
Bruce IS the GODFATHER to the judge's children!

The judge Lynn Alderman was on a case in Nov 2007 when my son Johnny
got arrested because they were drinking and Stephanie wanted to leave in
her car and my son took her car keys put them in his back pocket and would
not let her have them so he was arrested for FALSE IMPRISONMENT and
Steph threatened to call her dad ( which is ANOTHER county cop) to have
him beat Johnny up cause he wouldn't let her have her car keys so Johnny
walked over unplugged the telephone cord from the wall. Steph told him she
called her work 911 center Johnny was charged with interference with 911
call. Nov 2007.

Well they held Johnny in jail long enough for Steph to move her stuff out of
the house. me and my husband had an awful time getting Johnny released
but we did. Johnny was not allowed back at his own house, it took till Dec
04 2007 to get him back into his OWN house. The false imprisonment
charge dropped- the state knew they did not have the evidence for that
charge and he got 12 months probation for the interference with 911 call.

On July 25 2008 accident happened-the probation was revoked. NOW back
to the trial- his dad and I were kept out till closing arguments but we had
family in trial days the whole time. At trial they SHOWED it was accident
by dummies and rods and the states autopsy guy- proved it in front of their
eyes. The judge put on jury's paper felony murder, murder, aggravated
assault and two counts possession in the commission of a felony and only let
the defense put in voluntary manslaughter AS A FELONY- the judge wanted
to make sure my son lost his freedom and she did just that.

She replaced a juror and then shortly before the verdict was in guilty felony
murder and aggravated assault and commission of felony possession . The
judge smiled at my son when she was handed the verdict sheet and she said
GOOD LUCK MR Hart and sentenced him to life plus five years. When the
verdict was being read the judge was telling everyone to not yell out but then
she looked at ME and said NO CRYING or these officers will arrest you.
She is hateful. If you Google judge Lynn Alderman she is bias and pro-
prosecution!!!.

We are seeking help to get this overturned. the defense attorney has asked
for a new trial so the judge can right her wrongs. But this is a small town and
the cops and DAs and judges all have their circles and we are NOT in them.
We are poor and NOT originally from GEORGIA and they KNOW this too.
BUT they done my son SOOO wrong here.

The intentional murders here got less time then my son but one guy. GBI
was called out on all those cases but NOT my sons. They did NOT want GBI
to expose their involvement with my sons wife and what they done to him
Nov 2007 to come out on them-THE GOOD OLE BOY SYSTEM here.

MY son is NO MURDERER but they sentenced him stiffer than one. This
was A TRAGIC horrible accident that my son has to live with the rest of his
life with and he LOVES his wife still. THIS county done him wrong because
Stephanie was ONE OF THEIR OWN!!! IT WAS PERSONAL and John
Murphy investigator for white county sheriffs department MADE a promise
to Stephanie's dad that he would prosecute to the fullest of the law!!! I have
that in a report in writing. Never was this investigated as an accident. It was
murder from the very start in this county's eyes and mouth!!!!

A newspaper has all their talk calling my son a murderer. and it is not right.
This trial WAS UNJUST AND UNFAIR!!!! It was awful and they are
destroying my sons life and taken it away from him and us. There is no
JUSTICE in white county Cleveland Georgia. Clint Bennett was fired
Before My sons trial for sexually harassing female inmates ( Stephanie was
involved with him- the text messages I mentioned) another cop Larry
Carlyle RECENTLY got fired for beating up a mentally handicap inmate (
He had Johnny arrested in Nov 2007) HE let Ken Eggerton haul Johnny in
while Larry stayed with Stephanie.

These two cops were testifying at this trial July 2009. but Larry's fired now.
Coincidence? I wonder, it seems this is a clean up around here job in case
new trial gets awarded. Strange huh? Any way that's the involvement .

When this shooting happened my son scared of these cops here and ran-with
reason to. Lets just say our cops are NOT trustworthy here and WE KNOW
it. Fear made him flee and to tell you the truth I would of too because I do
not trust law enforcement officers here myself.

If there is anyone out there that can help my son PLEASE- it would be
GREATLY appreciated. He is in a county jail FOR now but could be
transported ANYTIME though. I just pray to GOD for help.

Thank you sincerely Jennifer Hart ( Jonathan's mother)

P.S. NOV 2007 Stephanie called ME at 3 am and said Johnny's been
arrested and I asked her why she told me she DID NOT Know and asked me
to go get him out. BUT she done it and she knew it and the cops told my
husband and I she asked for two days to move her stuff out. Anyways that is
done and over BUT January 2008 she moved back into the house with
Johnny but the state wants to deny that and did at trial but I have an affidavit
that Steph signed in 2007 THAT SHE WAS NOT AFRAID OF JOHNNY
AND HE WOULD NOT HURT HER OR ANYONE. But they did not let
good stuff like that come out at trail the judge would stop it!!! UNFAIR
AND UNJUST!!! WHAT CAN WE DO?

I sent this letter twice to the news channel fox 5 here in Atlanta Georgia and
no response. Why do they not want to tell side two of story? I would like
your thought on this please? Thank you sincerely Jenniffer Hart

About the Jonathan Hart murder case-it was looked at as murder from the
very beginning by authorities of White County sheriff's office. GBI was on
hold to be called in to investigate, the case, the crime scene but they
were never called in to do so.

Stephanie was 5'2" tall. Jonathan is 5'8" tall. The bullet hole was 7'3" from
the floor to the hole were exited. The space they were in was 2' 1/2" (max.)
wide when he ran into her with gun pointed up, it accidentally went off, she
was answering a text from her boyfriend Clint Bennett (whom worked for
WCSO) White County sheriffs office she turned around and bumped the gun
barrel.

Yes, he ran out of state, but he WAS coming back to turn himself in to
WCSO Cleveland Georgia when he was picked up in Louisiana. But if you
check you will see why he ran= scared!! She was a 911 dispatcher for White
County. SHE WAS ONE OF THEIR OWN. In 2007 He was arrested for
false imprisonment and interfering with 911 calls.

Here you have 2 under age kids drinking at home fussing as husband and
wife as married people do she wanted to leave and he took her car keys. She
then said she was going to call her dad Jeff Haslup (a Clarkesville GA cop)
(a threat at her husband) so he went over and unplugged the phone but soon
learned she had called her work 911 center.

Officers Ken Egerton and Larry Carlyle came out Arrested Jonathan. Ken
Egerton hauled him in. Someone had to be the aggressor and taken in. Judge
Lynn Alderman was on this 2007 case. Now back to trial- John Murphy
(investigator) quoted to Jeff Haslup (Stephanie’s father) told him” that I
would prosecute this case to its fullest" The judge Lynn Alderman(on this
case too)replaced jurors.

Everything on defense side (that Stephanie had told us) was hearsay but on
states side it was testimony-allowed (what Stephanie had told). The previous
lawyer Gerald W. Bruce (Jerry) was fired by Jonathan around JAN or FEB
2008 by letter thru mail. Gerald was telling privileged information to
assistant DA Chris Foss about the gun and asst. DA MR FOSS took it to
defending lawyer Charlie Brown. Judge Lynn Alderman called in Mr. Bruce
to question him. Mr. Bruce was upset about a bar complaint filed by
Jonathan Hart. NO waiver was ever signed by Jonathan for Mr. Bruce to
discuss case to anyone. Now their is a second complaint into the bar on Mr.
Bruce. First one they said no found grievance. Second one waiting on a
reply.

The time the verdict was read the judge informed everyone no shouts of joy,
no talking and looked at me Jonathan's mother and said no crying or these
officers will arrest you. (Officers standing around courtroom) THERE is SO
much the public does not know about this case and trial because they know
when the citizens would read it they would know the truth of an accident and
the courts would not get their verdict they want but the citizens would
probably be someone on the jury.

Citizens of White County are being misled so when the second trial comes
they already in their minds have a verdict BEFORE any evidence is heard.
SO my son Jonathan Hart will NEVER get a fair trial in this county or
possibly this state and will probably get same verdict of life plus 5 years.

The truth needs to be told and heard. TO be fair and just is that not what our
legal system is all about? - THE TRUTH AND FAIR JUSTICE? THE
autopsy man Dr. Posey even demonstrated how this was an accident with
dummies and rods so did Jonathan Hart and the verdict still went the states
way. TELL me what is fair and just here? Sincerely Robert J. Hart and
Jenniffer J. Hart (PARENTS)

Attachment of story. Do you want to hear the other side now?

Thank you.

Sincerely
Jenniffer Hart.

One final note: A picture of Jonathan and Stephanie Hart taken at Pigeon
Forge, TN. At the old time photography place was on the wall in the house
above the fireplace (of Jonathan holding a rifle) taken on 9/08/07 ( their one
year anniversary) when the crime scene video was taped but that picture has
disappeared. What happened to this picture and why? Defense lawyer asked
the question " Where is this picture?" NO ONE had the answer, at trial.
Today picture is still missing.

Mr. John Murphy stated he found several other weapons (at scene). Where
are these several other weapons? John Murphy told Robert J. Hart that the
muzzle loader (out from under Jonathan's bed in case at the house (the
scene) was at the sheriff's office for SAFE keeping. Where is the muzzle
loader now? I asked for it back it was NOT part of evidence in case was
NOT tagged as so. So who has the black powder muzzle loader gun now?
Where are the other personal belongings taken from the house, not tagged as
evidence? I called WCSO on it no one has gotten back to me as of yet.

It is very pleasing to learn of your interest in my situation. I will try to give
full details of everything, though I may miss something's due to so much in
it. I apologize because this will be a long letter. I will give you everything
that helps and hurts.

I am not a perfect man, but I am honest. I will explain all technical and court
stuff first. Then I'll explain exactly what happened, and how this is
accidental. This is a case pertaining to the death of my wife, a local 911
dispatcher, Stephanie Dianne Hart.

First we have the crime scene specialist Mark Taylor, and lead investigator
John Murphy with the white county sheriff's office. They chose NOT to call
in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on the scene. The G.B.I. has an office
close by. WCSO (White County Sheriff's Office) usually used them on such
cases, even same style case the same year.

John said Taylor did the whole scene, J. Murphy just assisted. They
produced a 2 page report (supplemental report) of the scene. This was the
only report ever done. They took pictures, and made a video. During
investigation they missed 3 junk bullets in the trash can, and an empty bullet
box. They collected a fired .40 cal. Cartridge and an unfired cartridge from
living room. Cut hole out of sheet-rock when it was clear the bullet exited
the house. Then they retrieved bullet from awning, collected phones, and a
set of Divorce papers. The victim’s phone was on ground with the back and
battery popped off. Showing it was dropped. I'll explain further on. They left
the scene 4 hours after arrival; they issued warrants on NCIC for murder, not
homicide. They didn't clean the scene until months later.
I was picked up in Louisiana a few days later, coming back to White County,
Georgia to turn myself in. I was extradited back to White County. I hired a
private attorney named Gerald Bruce. He was terminated by me around Feb.
08 for client neglect. He had done absolutely nothing, other than waive a
committal hearing. He put in for a physic evaluation, when it's clear I'm
sane. I put a bar complaint on him. When we got the findings from the bar
page 2 of his response was missing. They denied any further action. When
asked of a missing page they simply say their not reopening the complaint.

The second week of trial, he was present to view the trial. He sat behind us
with assistant district attorney Christopher Voss. In front of him was Public
defender Courtney Bradley. In which Bruce disclosed privilege information
to Voss. Voss brought this to our attention.

They were put on the stand. Voss said Bruce told him the location of the
firearm used. Bruce said he could not remember, and then said I never told
him. Of course I told him. I trusted him, cause I used him successfully
before. I even tried to get him to trade the firearm for a bond. I have
discussions of this recorded with his paralegal Karli Kimmel, while housed
to Hall county jail. Also all their testimonies are on record. We could not
inquire for because the judge Lynn Alderman protected him. Bruce is
Alderman the children's Godfather.

I later inquired a public defender, Charles Brown. We had no more money
after paying for Bruce. Assisting Brown was chief assistant Jeane Davis, and
Private Investigator Todd Dawson. T. Dawson had to produce all evidence,
because Authorities did not. This man is an extremely talented Investigator.

A personal friend and attorney Humberto Izquierdo Jr. gave money to pay
for our own medical examiner, to reconstruct the scene. We did not use her,
because we got it from the autopsy man, Dr. Posey.

We have a weapons expert who knows SKS gun personally. He's been with
me and fired it. He is Chief Petty Officer Bradley Wayne Dickey with the
United States Navy. He is my uncle. Unfortunately he could not attend. He
did produce an opinion statement of how "touchy" the trigger was. He's an
expert from 14+ years with the U.S.N. I feel.

When it came to jury selection it was out of 250 people. We picked the 40+
quickly. Judge chose pane 1, 2 and # 4 to choose from. Jeremy Clough and
Jeff Langley was the prosecuting side. Langley asked the potential jurors, if
they were fans of C.S.I or courtroom TV shows. Asked if anyone expected to
see any of that here today. Said you do understand that is all dramatize TV In
which I agree, but I argue that these are misleading questions. It misleads
them to believe that such things are fake. In which WCSO does have that
type of technology available to them, the G.B.I. WE have technology like so
to prove what happened without the suspects statement. Mostly they lie or
do not talk. It was to cover the poor investigation done. Trying to swing a
jury before it started. Anyone who said the still expected it to be professional
was removed.

It had a lot of county employees or connections to law enforcement on
panels. We ran out of strikes, and ended up with Taylor's ex-wife (she didn't
like us), and the clerk Dena Adams husbands aunt on our jury.

The trial was put off a few times. It was March 9th with only two weeks for
Brown to prepare for this new case. Judge refused to grant more time despite
my new counsel. She later granted it for the state to June, it finally started
July 13th. It took 11 days. The jury was out 4 days.

The judge was Lynn Alderman, whom decided to spread; this was an easy
murder case. She is very biased. She overruled all our objections, but
sustained all the states. Failed to Grant Limine to prevent the state from
producing evidence of my flight. Nor would she let us disclose in said affairs
of my wife with law enforcement. This would explain my fear of them, and
give reason for my flight. I am truly scared of them, because I've seen what
they are capable of.
She failed to grant a mistrial after the Bruce incident. Nor would she let us
inquire of what all he disclosed and to whom. She ordered Brown, Bruce,
court reporter and herself to chambers to further discuss. She denied me
allowed to be present. She did not want Bruce's mistake to be public. Later
she brought me in to not let me talk. I wouldn't give Bruce permission to
disclose info, so Alderman did. He denied, and she ended it right there.

She failed to grant a directed verdict when the state failed to prove malice
murder. She places the 3 alternate jurors in her chambers. She removed 2
jurors. One had a family emergency. The other juror was Brandi Walters.
The foreperson came out said he could not deal with her anymore. Said
Walters had her mind set on one verdict.

Alderman would not hang the jury; she ordered them to continue to
deliberate. Foreperson later said they had a verdict, but he didn't feel
everyone's heart was in it. Alderman denied our request for them to bring it
out. She ordered more deliberation. The jury said later she wouldn't
continue. Alderman went into the hall alone, and talked to Walters.

Alderman told us she was going to bring her in, but we are not to talk to her
because “she will fall apart!!” She brought Walters in and took her up to the
bench. Walters asked to leave and for an alternate to come in. Alderman said
'I cannot remove you unless you say you can't continue to deliberate. "Very
leading.” Walters said she should go home. Alderman told her again what to
say. Walters nodded her head yes. She was removed.

There were 2 alternates left. One really followed me, the judge chose the
other, cause she seen the one crying with me. We adjourned for the day.

Next day found guilty on felony murder, aggravated assault, and 2 counts of
possession of a firearm during a commission of a felony. When it was time
to charge the jury the state entered malice murder, felony murder, aggravated
assault, and the 2 firearm charges. We entered accidental and involuntary
manslaughter. Alderman would not let us enter misdemeanor involuntary
manslaughter, because I have served enough time. She made us enter it as a
felony. We all agreed that if no acquittal we believe misdemeanor.

Manslaughter was the correct charge. We used previous cases to compare.
She refused. Charles Brown could explain this. While the jury was out, the
state and law enforcement watched the jury on camera. Officer Rusty
Meyers said he had faith in Taylor's ex-wife a bailiff could hear the jury and
was telling Chief John O'Brien what they were saying.

Right before the trial started D.A. Jeremy Clough produced more discovery
(a diagram of scene). When the trial started Investigator Robin Still denied
the AT&T phone records produced in discovery. The records were addressed
to Robin Still. John Murphy denied them to. Apparently they had no idea of
them, so they say. They did not want them in because they prove happiness
between me and the victim. Most investigations were done a week or two
before trial. Inv.

Mark Taylor testified for 8 hours. He was clueless, and we tore him apart.
He said he tape measured the victim’s height, but still said it was the wrong
height. Said he did not look in the trash can. In which he would have found 3
junk bullets, and an empty cartridge box. Collected a muzzle loader, camera,
flash drive, and divorce papers.

We supplied the equipment for Taylor to demonstrate the scene. He put a rod
through a head, but in the wrong spot. He put it through the eye. The bullet
entered below the eye. He used tape to layout the wall impact place, but
that's it. He placed the victim where he guessed her to be. That's all. Said no
one could possibly tell you how this happened. Couldn't tell she was turned
over. Didn't measure the surroundings. Guess ceiling height. Taylor thought
it was a. pistol. It was a rifle. Said there was footprints, but in dirt. No one
used her call log to guess a time line of her death. It was easy to do when she
was texting when the event happened. Then it was unanswered.
John Murphy said he had more experience than G.B.I. Murphy said they had
no one at G.B.I. who was capable of reconstruction. He was after Taylor, so
he tried to clean up his mistakes. Said he looked in trash can. Didn't know
victims height either. We got him to demonstrate what he could also. He got
impact place on victim right. Couldn't do anything else. Also thought pistol.
He sat with the district attorney the whole time.

Murphy promised the victim's parents to prosecute this case to the fullest.
It's on paperwork to. He also said there was stippling on victim. They did
send some evidence to a crime lab. The crime lab later testified about the
fired cartridge and the unfired cartridge. Said they were both cycled through
a gun, but not the same gun. The fired one was from my gun. The unfired I
have no idea, there has never been another .40 cal. gun in my house. They
were also two different name brands.

A woman from the crime lab testified about blood testing on my clothes. A
tiny spot was on my buttocks, because I squatted at victim on my feet. A
drop was on top my boot. None else was found.

Then came the autopsy man, Dr. Posey. This was the most useful witness.
Testified there was no stippling on victim, but was close to victim (the gun).
He said the victim’s hair was moved, because I rolled her over. Dr. Posey
could determine the exact location of the firearm by the body’s examination.
We supplied him with the equipment to. He placed the rod through the head
on the exact bullet path. Vie. Was still in place. He aligned the bullet path
with the cabinet at location the bullet struck. Then took the rifle and placed
its exact location and angle. In doing so he placed the shooter. He said he
just reconstructed the scene. It was a complete replica of the scene.

Then Stephanie's new boyfriend Clinton Bennett testified. Said he knew
Stephanie was at my house the Wednesday before accident, and he knew she
was coming over the day of the shooting. Bennett testified she was never
scared of me, and that she never showed any fear of me.
Then my co-worker Tim Copp testified he was coming to my house to
purchase furniture and tools. Copp said he would have bought the guns, if I
had them there. Testified that I left work sick, and was very pale in the face.
He started to say how he was surprised of how good a worker I was, but
Alderman wouldn't allow it. Tim Copp said he has met Stephanie recently at
work.

My boss Steve Tallman also said Steph has been to my work recently.
Tallman was on vacation the day of the accident.

An old friend of the victims testified, Rebecca Cals. Cals said she was with
the victim the day of. Said Stephanie was scared. Cals testified she told
Steph to take her Dad, her brother, or a cop with her to my house. Drama
queen. Cals said years ago I kicked Stephanie in the knee. Then later said
she seen Stephanie with a huge bruise on her hip. Said I pushed her on a tub.
Rebecca Cals has not been in Stephanie's life for many years. We moved
away a long time ago. She has a way of making things up. None of this was
in her statement to Investigator Still. It suddenly came up during trial.
Stephanie was not ever in any danger she would have called her father or
911.

The event in which Cals said I kicked Stephanie was 5 years ago. We were
all at a friend's house, and me and a friend was horse-playing. In which I
accidentally did kick Steph. She was sitting close to where I landed. She
wasn't hurt and took no offense. A few weeks later we started to date.
Stephanie never had a bruise on her hip. I would have seen it. There was no
tub incident.

Cals seeks revenge for my calling the law when her and her boyfriend stole
my 1970 Plymouth roadrunner. Plus she blamed me for Stephanie moving
away. Stephanie told her boyfriend she did not fear me. It makes no sense
why she would. Rebecca and no one else.
Then Stephanie's supervisor at 911 dispatch center testified. His name was
Ben Smith. Smith said Stephanie was like his little sister. Smith said I have
put a gun to Steph's head, but he told no one. Nor did Steph, but she
supposedly said this happened, to Ben Smith only? Said Stephanie tried to
stay with him one night. Stephanie received an email from me to the 911
center. Smith said Stephanie was shaking. Yet witnesses said there was no
fear. Ben was obsessive with Stephanie, cause of sexual assaults that
happened to him. He took comfort with her. He was later reported to Leah
Sullins for sexually harassing Stephanie Nothing was done. Steph's job was
threatened.

My mother later testified to conditions of my house and a hole in door. The
house was not clean. Jenniffer Hart (mother) testified to us being with each
other before July separation and happiness.

My father Robert 1. Hart and brother Robert W. Hart testified to how
untrained I was with a gun.

Then I testified for 5 hours. The state only questioned me for a few minutes;
I used the same equipment to demonstrate what happened. It was an exact
match to Dr. Posey the only person who could tell what happened. State
never questioned this.

They focused on a car wreck I was in. I stated I was hit head on by a DUI
driver. Apparently diabetes was a factor to. My mistakes. Also the state
focused on how long I was there after Stephanie was shot. I already stated
seconds. Clough timed me, 33 seconds. I also used tape to outline the house
on the courtroom floor. Also I made a mistake of times on calls between me
and the victim. They made a big deal, because Steph called me before I left
work. I'm worried they'll be better at the next trial because we showed them
how.

That's the main points in the trial. Many more factors and witnesses. Alright
on November 2007 I was arrested for the first time ever. I was charged with
false imprisonment, interfering with a 911 call. Basically it was
thanksgiving, we was celebrating with alcohol (under age). We started to
argue over the TV, Steph wanted to leave and cool off. I kept all the car keys
and told her to call a ride. She said she was going to call her dad to fight me
(she was drunk). I unplugged the phone cord, and told her please don't start
trouble, just call a ride. She walked off to the bedroom. I went back to
watching TV when 2 officers came to the house.

Officer Edgerton and Officer Carlyle. I was put outside in the cold in my
underwear, talking to Edgerton. Larry Carlyle went to talk to Stephanie They
later put me in the garage. I told them what happened, and they said they'll
probably just have me leave for the night. Later Carlyle brings me inside to
unload a sks rifle. I had guns out for hunting 1st thing the next morning.

Carlyle said gun's make him nervous. I told him maybe he shouldn't be a
cop. He opened the garage door and pushed me outside. They brought me in
later and Carlyle said they wouldn't leave without me. They took me to jail
for keeping a drunk driver off the road. Maybe saving lives.

At the jail Kenneth Edgerton filled out the report. He filled out a statement
from me and Steph I never told him the thing's in it. He later says there was
broken glass from pictures, but failed to mention that in his report. We just
bought the house; there were no pictures at all. Carlyle said nothing of glass.

Stephanie was left at the house with Larry Carlyle after I left. In which
Stephanie and him had sexual activities per Steph. They have been talking
before this incident, and Steph said she thought I would separate with her is
why. Stephanie asked for a few days to move out.

I was taken to jail late Friday night and released Sunday, I believe. I had a
bond condition of no contact nor could I go home. Stephanie was already
moved out. At the time I was operating a private Dog rescue service and had
many animals. They would not let me go feed them. Also said if I didn't feed
them I would go back to jail for animal cruelty. The dogs were fed
regardless.

Later my bond condition was modified to go home. Stephanie volunteered
on affidavit so I could go home. Said she did not fear me and wish the no
contact would be lifted. Also said she did plan to divorce. Later we
reconciled and she moved back home. The state said we were separated,
because only trusted people knew, because of the bond condition.

I had witnesses to testify to us working things out. Also I'm working on
retrieving documented proof of that. Such as purchase of new wedding
bands after the 07 incident. Also receipts of out of town togetherness and
witnesses too. I can without a doubt prove we was still together after the 07
incident until we both agreed to separate on July 4th 2008.

We had a disagreement over her alcohol basically. She left, and I decided to
divorce and took the steps in doing so. Also Stephanie purchased 2 cell
phones for me to use during this supposedly time of separation One Verizon,
one AT&T. In which she maintained the bill.

Before I finally explain what happened, let me explain my life status
leading up to the accident. I was a telephone man who got injured and
was terminated for it. I used to average $500.00- $2,000.00 a week. I
ended up working at a campground making $320.00 a week. I had a
mortgage of $1,200.00 a month, truck payment, personal loans ranging
from $2,000.00 to $13,000.00. Charge accounts in several places, plus
all the necessities of having such things. I averaged $2,500.00 to
$3,500.00 a month of debt. Plus trying to fund a dog rescuing service.

You can see the new job barely makes the house payment. It was very
stressful. I began to sell furniture or whatever I could out of my house.
I was going to sell my last two guns to Tim Copp. That's why they were
even at my house. I was taking side jobs trying to just make ends meet.
I could hardly sleep or eat. The worst case of anxiety ever. I even
entered the hospital for chest pains, they thought I was depressed. I
couldn't focus on anything other than debt. This also, I believe,
prevented me from being more cautious with the rifle.

Steph and I separated July 4th I decided to divorce. The accident happened
Friday. The Wednesday before she came to my house. She came because I
sent her an email that she had a check that came in. Plus I stated I wanted to
discuss the divorce. I sent this to her work email at the 911 center.

She came by at about 1; 00 Am and stayed until the next morning. We
discussed the divorce. Discussed our new relationships, and then played
basketball until about 4; 00 AM. I can prove all of this. She later left and I
went to work Thursday morning. I told her I would get divorce papers then
let her know.

Thursday night I send her a text message, “Thank you for seeing me. Be
happy.” (Exact words.) She responded “you to". Less than 24 hrs before her
death.

Friday July 25th, the day of the accident. I go to work. Everything's normal
until after lunch. I got some bad Wendy's and later threw up at work. I went
to rest and Scott Boyd told me to go home for the day.

Stephanie called to see if I got the paperwork. I told her no, but the boss told
me to leave work so I'll get them on my way home. I clocked out and started
to exit. It was around 2:30 PM. Tim Copp stopped me at the exit gate. Said
that he'll be by Saturday to purchase stuff. I told him that I had 2 guns to sell,
and I'll have them there. He shook his head, but didn't hear me because of
his lawn mower and my loud truck.

I stopped at a store and bought some beer. If I felt better I was to go out to a
bar with a friend Scott Favors that night. All provable.
I stopped at my mother’s house to pick up my .40 cal. Rifle and the .50 cal.
Muzzle loader to sell. They had been there untouched since the 07 incident.
The last person to touch them was Officer Larry Carlyle. I told mother I'd be
back Sunday to help build their garage. I obviously had a full weekend. All
provable.

I left and went home. Took everything inside. Then left again. I went to the
public library to print off the divorce petition and the separation agreement
and picked out the belongings.

Steph only wanted her dog Hennessy and her car. She didn't want the house
or anything else. I got back home and sent Steph a text message that I was
back with the papers. She called and said she was in Toccoa and that she'd
be there in a little while. I fed the dogs and put the inside one in the garage. I
got ready to get in the shower when she arrived.

I let her in and told her there’s the paper. I got dressed. We talked; I invited
her and Bennett to the bar with Scott and me. She declined. Well at that
point I'm feeling better.

It was later in the afternoon. I drank a beer. Let me back up, I'm sorry.
Before I fed the dogs. I took the guns to my bedroom. I took them out to
inspect. They've been setting a long time still loaded. I unloaded the .40
caliber and 3 bullets are green. I threw them away and put new ones in. I
reloaded the gun and cocked it. That's how my gun's always are.

I thought I replaced the safety, but I must not have. I was rushing around
trying to get too much done at one time. I put the .50 cal. away because I got
the wrong stuff to fire it. I put the .40 cal. Carbine on the couch to test fire
later.

OK now Steph's here and we started to fill out the paperwork. We were
discussing it when I started to break down and cry. I was crying because life
has become overwhelming to me. I couldn't handle the debt. It was all that I
thought about. It even started to affect my health. Now we were here to
finally divorce. It was overwhelming how life changed for us so fast.

Well I saw the gun on the other couch. Then I started to think about a time
years ago when I came close to shooting myself. I doubt I really would have
but was tempted. This was Christmas 06. I found out my wife had an affair
with my brother. When I told her about it, she apologized and asked to stay
together. I took the .40 cal rifle and sat down with it at an old house of ours.
She saw me and came and took the rifle from me. We talked all night right
there on the floor. We both cried and held each other.

We decided to work through it. I was very comforted by this. I forgave Steph
and Bryan. Everything went back to normal, and in August 07 we moved
into our first purchased house. Things were great.

OK back to the accident. We were filling out the paperwork. I was crying
and I looked at the gun. Now I was in desperate need for someone to help
me through this stress. I came up with an idea to act like I want to shoot
myself. Steph asked for a beer and went to get one. I picked up the gun and
walked towards my back door. I carried the gun as I always did, by the pistol
grip handle. Carrying it straight up. I walked behind Stephanie, but looked
down crying. I didn't notice she stopped and was texting her boyfriend
(which was later about her boyfriend’s birthday).

I rethought this idea. It was stupid and I definitely shouldn't do this. I
thought just ask for help. So I stopped and flung my arms outward and say
“Steph would you .... “ Then gun struck her in the shoulder/ neck region. I
looked up to see what I touched, as she looked back to see what touched her.
I said, “Oh shit.” and my thoughts were to get the gun away from her. I
jerked the gun sideways, and I guess I accidentally squeezed the trigger. I
overlooked the safety because of all that was on my mind.

She fell; I threw the gun to the couch. Turned her over and screamed her name. She
was unresponsive. I freaked out, grabbed the gun and left. I kept driving, crying,
scared to death. I ended up in Texas where I called mom to call the law, then started
to come home.

I was picked up in Louisiana walking over 130 miles to get back. I had warrants
and was arrested. I was recorded stating I was trying to get back to Georgia. I ran
because I was afraid of them. I knew they would never believe me. I was arrested
in 07 for DUI was kept from driving.

Now this, who would believe me that it, was accidental. I know most of them
personally. I know what they are capable of. I feared I had no chance of fair justice
with them. I was only offered one plea for life.

We have put in for a new trial. There are a few points to back up accidental. The
bullet path entered just under left eye traveling left to right and upwards, because
Steph was turning around. She is 5' 2”; I am 5' 8" .If you intend to shoot someone
you draw your weapon and fire. The bullet would have been straight or downward.
Plus this was a rifle.
A psychologist could tell the effect of such anxiety and how it could unwillingly
prevent someone from functioning normally. Which would rule out any negligence
on my behalf due to state of mind.

I can produce more paperwork to prove our happiness and that she moved back in
with
me.

We are currently waiting.

Now some strange things have been happening. People that were involved with Steph
and I were being fired. Clint Bennett and Larry Carlyle. Larry Carlyle was for beating
a mental health man on camera.

I am housed at Rabun county Detention center.

I have been receiving a lot of legal mail from innocent projects and such. No luck
there. My mother wrote down the email you sent her with the address for me to
write this.

They knew I was waiting to hear from the White House because of a phone
conversation. The day it comes in I get transferred to White County. The mail was
bagged and went with me. (I still haven't got it.).

Apparently I have a court date and I was taken to then sent back to Rabun. White
County lost my legal mail and my personal belongings. Then later they told my
parents they'd send it up to me. Still haven't got it. I believe they are worried over
the White House contact.

The sudden court date was today. Apparently some court trail exhibits got wet and
ruined. They wanted to reproduce this stuff and show us. Mostly pictures and jury
notes. A quick glance everything appeared the same, but you really couldn't tell
unless you were an expert. I don't trust them. They have done worse. This is very
strange. This town does things like this and gets away with it. Everyone's afraid of
them. No one has ever went against them.

I used to hang out at Steph's work (911 center) and my father's. He was their
mechanic.
I had conversations and learned stuff I didn't want to know. It disgusted me so much. I
stopped coming around.

Everything from the beating people, blackmailing women to having sex or go to
jail, taking money to convict someone else accused of murder, placing a recording
device in the attorney/client room, to taking money from the Russians in Cherokee
NC. Their said to be bad people. They have overlooked a woman's death cause their
friend asked them to. When woman died fleeing of fear for being chased, edited
documents. Sheriff Neil Walden and Judge Barrett use a local car company Gacky
Jones) to wash money. This was all told to me out of trust. There are much more
horrible things I know, how and who can prove it all. This has got to stop. How long
can this go on? How many lives are lost?

Then while I'm in the cell they played music about killing your spouse and sung it to
me. I can provide you with names and contact information for every ex girlfriend,
school teacher and such to prove I have never been a violent person. Just let me
know if you'd like this list.

I have support from Texas, Ohio, Georgia and Japan. Television preachers, military,
friends, family, co-workers and pastors. There is far too much to explain. Please
feel free to talk to Charles Brown, Todd Dawson, and Jeanie divas (my
representation) at: 1536 South Main St. Cleveland, Georgia 30528 telephone
# 706-348-8577.

Our weapons expert/uncle who has followed case can be reached at Bradley W.
Dickey

Bradley 23 99@yahoo.com . These can provide you with further info. If needed.

Please I need help. I need to show the truth. These people have to be stopped. What
about the victim's family? They got cheated of the truth from the get go. They were
told murder from day one. Now they believe that, They deserve to know the truth
before
anyone. I feel I have suffered enough and deserve my freedom. I've lost my wife, our
lives and everything in it.

People believe this horrible thing about me. If you could help me get freed
by acquittal, reduction to Involuntary Manslaughter as misdemeanor, or
even a pardon. Then I would be free and together we all can work together
to bring justice to everyone. Clean up this small town and make sure this
never happens to anyone again. President Obama has the power to free me.

This was an accident. I can prove that. This case can change the town for
everyone. Private attorney's around town hope I'll win, so things will
change. You have the power to change this town for everyone. Please help
us. Not just for me, but for everyone who may make a mistake. Then they
will be treated fairly.

I can back up everything I say. I hope to work with you to eliminate these
illegal actions in White County. I hope you can help me achieve my
freedom, so I may possibly serve in the U.S. Army when it's over. If you
don't help more innocent people will suffer, and the true criminals will
continue on. Please bring change and the truth to the people of White
County, Georgia.

I do not know what will happen to me. We are terrified of them. I will be
transported soon. White County is in fear of you. They know of our
communications. Please help us all.

I have enclosed a typed copy of this letter, because it is easier to read. Thank
you for your time and consideration. I hope to be working with you.

Sincerely,

Johnathan Hart found guilty in murder trial
Judge's sentence is life in prison

by Erin Garner

White County News

Johnathan Hart, 22, of Cleveland, was convicted of felony murder, aggravated assault
and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony on Saturday, July 25 in
connection the death of his estranged wife, Stephanie Haslup Hart.

The verdict was handed down by jurors at the White County Courthouse exactly a year
after Stephanie Haslup Hart died from a gunshot wound at Johnathan Hart's home on
Lothridge Road.

She was a 21-year-old White County 9-1-1 dispatcher at the time of her death.

Superior Court Judge Lynn Alderman sentenced Hart to a mandatory life sentence,
which makes him eligible for parole in 30 years under current Georgia law.

For the weapons charge, Alderman sentenced him to a five-year sentence to run
consecutive to his life sentence, which would mean Hart must serve 35 years before
being paroled.

Hart's trial lasted for eight days, followed by 21 hours of jury deliberation over a
four-day period.

“It really was a huge relief. We really didn't think it was going to be as important to us
as it was, because it doesn't get Stephanie back, but it felt like a little bit of vindication,”
Janice Haslup of Toccoa, Stephanie Haslup Hart's mother, said.

In his closing argument, public defender Charlie Brown told jurors to consider the
possibility that Stephanie Haslup Hart's death was accidental and that Johnathan Hart
was treated unfairly during the investigation because of his wife's work with law
enforcement officers.

“This is one of our own. This is not about justice. This is about revenge,” he said,
referring to White County officials involved with the investigation.

Assistant district attorney Jeremy Clough, the lead prosecutor for the case, said in his
closing statement that Johnathan Hart had a “willingness to shade the truth” and was
only concerned about himself and having what he wanted.

“This is a man accustomed to lying to get his way,” he said. “He has learned to try to lie
to escape what he wants to escape.”

Clough told jurors that the trial was only about justice in the case.

“This trial begins and this trial ends at the life that was taken. The life that was taken
and the man who took it,” he said.

Talk about bias! Judge Alderman actually told a man/father that he was lucky 2009-08-28
that he gets six weeks of summer visitation with his own child, because most Negative/Critical
men/fathers only get four. All things being equal, a good parent should
(Constitutionally, by Law, and by best interest of a child) receive 50/50 custody.
But, Judge Alderman does not stop there. She also states to the father, “this is
what you get when you get one woman pregnant and marry another woman.”
Now, if that’s not prejudice, unconstitutional, contrary to law, facts, and
evidence, what the heck is? This is a good father who was primary care giver of a
child (born out of wedlock) who gets married, then has his child taken from him
for almost a year waiting for hearings(causing the child severe trauma, even
medical issues) as a selfish ploy by the mother to change the primary care to her,
he then spends over $10,000 in attorney fees, $3000 for a court-ordered
psychologist and is chosen as the best parent, goes to hearing after hearing for
two years; and finally, he and the child, are oppressed with 4 days a month and
six weeks in the summer. Not only is the statement “that’s what you get…”
reason enough to believe Judge Alderman is out of line, but the mother has had
several men live with her and the child, including one convicted felon, and has
had at least four known/admitted pregnancies out of wedlock (including one after
this child). The father has this one child. They knew each other for a few weeks
when she became pregnant (a pattern of this woman for almost 20 years). Both
parents are 40 years old at the time of conception. The relationship never took
root, but the parental relationship continued and the father even moved to the
area to be here for his child. We’d like to see Judge Alderman provide laws
supporting that when two adults become pregnant that it is the man’s fault alone
and that he is the one who should bare all the burdens and punishments that
come with that responsibility, including should he marry another woman he is
then even more at fault. Or, where is the law that supports what she says -- this
(minimal visits) is what a father gets for getting a woman pregnant. Again,
sending all the work to make women equal, she spirals women (in her Court) to
powerless victims! You would think a woman would know more than anyone
that the responsibility (and thus power) of becoming pregnant or not, belongs to
the woman whose body will carry it. Socially, morally and perhaps even
biologically, women are expected to be prudent about sexual relations; not men.
Medically, women have the power to become pregnant or not; not men. Legally,
women have the power to bear or child, put a child up for adoption, or abort a
child; not men. Now, the Law supports women’s power for the unborn, but once
born there is equal power for men/fathers. But, not in Judge Alderman’s court,
she rules by her personal hatred of men or wherever she gets her reasoning –
men/fathers do not have power concerning children, they are expected to suffer
and to pay (and he was $200/week). To give Judge Alderman credit, she did
modify the custody adding in the standard “no opposite sex overnight guests
unless related by blood or marriage.” However, she knew the mother was living
with a man at the time and did not enforce her own order. Since then, the mother
says she has married, but will give no evidence, including false information on
interrogatories. Even though the mother has lied in depositions and committed
perjury, she is not called to the carpet to provide proof she is following the
Order. So, even when Judge Alderman appears to do something in the best
interest of a child, she will not enforce it. Therefore, it is a moot intent to protect

a child and enforce the law. Or, maybe it has nothing to do with law or the best
interest of a child, maybe not even fathers/men – the mother’s attorney is
Michelle Vaughan – surprise, surprise.

4/2009 - Judge Alderman signed a TPO (Temporary Protective Order) for a 2009-08-26
client of Michelle Vaughan with no accusations of violence or threat of violence Negative/Critical
(literally left blank) and with the knowledge Judge Miller had the parties on his
docket. (A common maneuver of Michelle Vaughan to try to switch cases she
can't uphold with the law to an unsuspecting {or cooperating} judge.) TPOs are
handed out like candy, a waste of tax-payers money. What makes this criminal is
that Alderman did it with the knowledge this client was taking the parties minor
child out of state without notifying the other parent against the final order and
purposely withheld due process. A voluntary recusal was asked of Alderman
based on Judge Miller being involved and even having a pending hearing on
4/30/09 for another matter with the same parties (and because it is public
knowledge she favors Vaughan like Stone did). Judge Alderman immediately
agreed to assign the case to Judge Miller, but then held the order, ignored orders
to expedite and/or dismiss the TPO/assignment (requested by the victim of the
TPO to prevent harm of the minor child by being erroneously separated from
their parent) until the last minute, granting the fraudulent TPO the power to
separate the parent/child for 30 days until the hearing at which time it was
dismissed by Judge Miller. Michelle Vaughan represents the client who filed the
bogus TPO and no doubt advised her client to use Alderman (telling her client to
use a different last name from all other matters, to fall under Alderman’s
alphabet) and then clearly Alderman held the assignment/order for harassment
purposes as a favor to Vaughan. Alderman and Vaughan abuse and waste the
Law created to protect innocent parties from true danger, and twist the law with
their undeserved power to harm innocent children. There is no cost for a TPO or
the service of such by the filer – the citizens pay for that; there are no
consequences for parties who abuse this privilege. During that time a child went
without seeing their parent, talking to their parent, seeing their parent at school,
being forced to hear horrible accusations/lies about their parent that appear
supported by law through the parent’s disappearance, and having their
psychological parent literally disappear from their life. Alderman and Vaughan
do not even attempt to hide their bias and shame, showing their arrogance to do
whatever they want to innocent children and their good parent(s). A full
investigation of Alderman and Vaughan are the only remedy and protection for
the citizens of Enotah. But we can’t wait for the very system that fails us, to
protect us. The citizens must band together and expose any corruption, bias or
wrong-doing and hold the offenders accountable. That’s why this forum is here –
for US -- to reveal the things they hide.

punished him and his daughter for MY ARTICLE (with opinions that everyone
within the "system" knows are true, but the general public doesn't, or didn't)
published on the front page of the Union and Towns Sentinel Newspapers -
http://www.unionsentinel.com/news/2007/1206/front_page/002.html Alderman
took away the father/daughter alternate Thursday custody (when the child was in
pre-k Mon-Wed-Fri) stating that the child could spend all day in daycare, but not
with HER father. This was at my husband’s contempt hearing against the mother
for interference with custody. Alderman entered my article as evidence against
the father??? At the same hearing, Alderman changed his daughter's last name to
insert the mother's maiden name (that she hasn't used for over 25 years including
presently) ignoring evidence, argument, reason, etc.; causing a 5 year-old to have
two last names (robbing her of her right to inherit from her father) and the
mother still refuses to follow her own manipulated order and frequently drops the
father's part of the last name, including on legal documents (school records and
DHR in 8/08). Alderman gave Judge Stone all the credit, stating she "knew" he Negative/Critical
meant to do the name this way in 11/2005 and it was just a scrivener’s error - 3
yrs later! The bias and corruption is clear. Michelle Vaughan was counsel for the
mother. These 2 women told a man he was responsible for my opinions -- a
generic article that obvious struck their guilt and/or narcissism!! TWO WOMEN
say a man is responsible for his wife's thoughts - so we are now intellectual
property?! I bet they wouldn't say that to their own husbands! They are 2 women
who harm the essence of the gender and d**n the feminine to the dark ages or
worse. Judge Stone appointed Alderman and Vaughan as juvy judges, now they
taint Superior Court - the Enotah Triangle. Maybe they will use this, but if they
do - they better come to me and leave my husband and his daughter out of it. I
have individual rights and I've been writing for years, and the newspaper chose
to print it, so get over it. Now, only an innocent child suffers because 2 women
sought to crush a man in the name of his wife. How dare them! And how
ignorant. What an insult to law and women! My husband happens to love me as a
strong, independent, intelligent woman, so their attempt to destroy my marriage
failed. They try to make a man choose between his child and his wife - that is
sick! They harm a child with no thought whatsoever! And, in the history of
mankind when has a woman shut up even if her husband asked her to :)
...Actually, I did for over a year, but they continue to harass and harm, so why
should I be silent. Evil prospers when good men/women do nothing. I'm not
willing to live with that responsibility. How about you? Speak out against
corruption. All change starts with "we, the people". These people in power
already will not change unless we make them or replace them. Alderman works
for us, if she can't do the job fairly, she needs to be fired. It's her choice. Maybe
her relationship with M.V. is worth it. We'll see.

Always late and quick to blame others for this. Weak in knowledge of the law, 2009-04-23
strong in the knowledge of HER law. She reflects the days spent in the DA's Negative/Critical
office. I predict that a majority of her cases will be overturned on appeal, thus
costing the taxpayer. The system is broke of both money and integrity. Hopefully
she will be called out sometime and the media will hear of it and call her to task.
Everyone watch her she is a poor lawyer and even poorer judge.

say that showing up late is a control issue.) NO judge should come to superior
court from juvenile court due to the "closed" nature that breeds corruption. See
Senator Nancy Schaefer for the corruption in the GA juvenile system (it will

I had to work with this judge when she was a prosecutor and when she was a 2008-11-08
defense attorney. I have had cases in front of her when she was a juvenile Positive/Compliment
court judge, and continue to practice in front of her now that she is on the
Superior Court bench. She is respectuful, fair, and well-versed in the law. She
is no-nonsense with civil and criminal litigants alike. I spend alot less time
waiting for my case to be heard than I do with some other judges.

She does not enforce the law on non custodial parents who do not pay child 2008-10-31
support or medical as agreed upon in the divorce agreement. She is way to Negative/Critical
lieniant on her rulings and does not enforce the law on the non custodial parents
who do not support their children. The welfare of the children in the Lumpkin
County Community is paying the price for her unwillingness to enforce the law.

She seems to always be running late, and has missed several court sessions. Her 2008-10-17
court is a long, time consuming ordeal. Remember that she was a prosecutor and Negative/Critical
her rulings tend to reflect this fact, and if the prosecutor happens to be a woman

This Judge is so far superior in ability to Judge Barrett or the laconic former and 2008-05-05
retired Judge Hugh Stone [NOW MEDIATING...WHAT A JOKE!!!] that the only Not Classified
thing that can be said is, if there is any justice she will become Chief Judge and
Judge Barrett will be "retired" to Senior judge status by the good citizens of the
Enotah Circuit and only appear very...very infrequently. She is new to the
Superior Court bench having come from the Juvenile Court and would do well to
remember that good judges never forget they started as lawyers not gods! I believe
she will do well, but on another note; her replacement in Juvenile Court, Judge
David Turk is another Barrett like idiot!!! Little circuits make big A*****ES!!!

White Co. jury finds Jonathan Hart guilty | AccessNorthGa http://www.accessnorthga.com/detail-pf.php?n=222040

CLEVELAND - A White County jury has returned a guilty verdict in the
murder trial of Jonathan Hart of Cleveland. Hart was accused of shooting
to death his estranged wife Stephanie Hart, a White County 911
operator, at his home on Lothridge Road East of Cleveland last year.

Following six and half days of testimony, the jury received the case
Wednesday and spent just over 20 hours in deliberation. During the
deliberation on Friday night, Superior Court Judge Lynn Alderman
replaced one of the jurors with an alternate after a female juror said she
could not continue deliberation in accordance of the instructions given by
the court. The jury decided to go home at 7:50 p.m. and return Saturday
morning.

Just before 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, the jury emerged with a verdict. Hart
was found guilty of Felony Murder and Aggravated Assault, along with
Possession of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony. Judge Alderman
immediately sentenced Hart to life in prison on the first two counts and a
consecutive five years on the possession of firearm charge. The jury’s Jonathan Hart recieving sentence
verdict comes one year to the date Stephanie Hart died.

Following Saturday’s verdict, Stephanie Hart's mother, Janice Haslup, praised the work of the District Attorney's office, saying they
worked to find the truth and the family is pleased with the verdict.

Enotah Circuit District Attorney Stan Gunter commended the work of the jury, saying you can tell they were dedicated to getting the
right verdict because of the amount of time they spent deliberating.

Hart’s Attorney, Charlie Brown, said he will discuss with his client Monday any appeal process, but he said he will leave that up to
Hart.

2009-08-26 Women Thoughts are owned by their husbands.... Lynn Alderman
19:26:48

Judge Alderman told my husband he is responsible for my opinions!? She punished him and his daughter for MY
ARTICLE (with opinions that everyone within the "system" knows are true, but the general public doesn't, or didn't)
published on the front page of the Union and Towns Sentinel Newspapers - http://www.unionsentinel.com/news/2007
/1206/front_page/002.html

Alderman took away the father/daughter alternate Thursday custody (when the child was in pre-k Mon-Wed-Fri) stating
that the child could spend all day in daycare, but not with HER father. This was at my husband’s contempt hearing against
the mother for interference with custody. Alderman entered my article as evidence against the father??? At the same
hearing, Alderman changed his daughter's last name to insert the mother's maiden name (that she hasn't used for over 25
years including presently) ignoring evidence, argument, etc.; causing a 5 year-old to have two last names (robbing her of
her right to inherit from her father) and the mother still refuses to follow her own manipulated order and frequently drops
the father's part of the last name, including on legal documents (school records and DHR in 8/08). Alderman gave Judge
Stone all the credit, stating she "knew" he meant to do the name this way in 11/2005 and it was just a scrivener’s error - 3
yrs later! The bias and corruption is clear. Michelle Vaughan was counsel for the mother. These 2 women told a man he
was responsible for my opinions -- a generic article that obvious struck their guilt and/or narcissism!! TWO WOMEN say
a man is responsible for his wife's thoughts - so we are now intellectual property?! I bet they wouldn't say that to their own
husbands! They are 2 women who harm the essence of the gender and d**n the feminine to the dark ages or worse. Judge
Stone appointed Alderman and Vaughan as juvy judges, now they taint Superior Court - the Enotah Triangle. Maybe they
will use this, but if they do - they better come to me and leave my husband and his daughter out of it. I have individual
rights and I've been writing for years, and the newspaper chose to print it, so get over it. Now, only an innocent child
suffers because 2 women sought to crush a man in the name of his wife. How dare them! And how ignorant. What an
insult to law and women! My husband happens to love me as a strong, independent, intelligent woman, so their attempt to
destroy my marriage failed. They try to make a man choose between his child and his wife - that is sick! They harm a child
with no thought whatsoever! And, in the history of mankind when has a woman shut up even if her husband asked her to :)
...Actually, I did for over a year, but they continue to harass and harm, so why should I be silent. Evil prospers when good
men/women do nothing. I'm not willing to live with that responsibility. How about you? Speak out against corruption. All
change starts with "we, the people". These people in power already will not change unless we make them or replace them.
Alderman works for us, if she can't do the job fairly, she needs to be fired. It's her choice. Maybe her relationship with
M.V. is worth it. We'll see.
