I truly expected to see the story about the Larkin civil rights violations produce a whole lot more angry responses about this being the potential second violation of civil rights locally, in a very short period of time. When Taylor was released, one of the big questions I had was if this was a regular occurrence, or a one time mistake. Hearing now about a potential second happening of people listening into private conversations between attorney and client really scares me that we have a pattern going on now, and that this has happened more than twice. I feel that people should really be outraged about this. We have one allegedly confessed killer free already, and now another instance where the case could possibly be effected. This is incredibly serious here. The implications for us all are scary. I made the comparison the other day, but will make it again, people should be WAY more upset about this, than about an idiotic article about basketball in LaCrosse. There should be outrage and calls for investigations. More than anything we the public are due some answers to know that the legal justice system in LaPorte County is sound, and that our very basic civil rights, as promised by the constitution are being protected, and not regularly violated.

I too am alarmed by this. It goes beyond incompetence and the citizens should really be outraged into action.

I called Mike Bohacek to inquiry as to the information available out of the clerk's office and the inner workings of the clerk's office. Though Mike was helpful, he also said, "I can't get sucked into this." I took this to mean that the judiciary in Laporte County was the third rail of county government.

I called the DOJ and it is true that all court operations are guide by state law, but just try to read them. It is super complicated and I honestly was dizzy just trying to find out how files move after a court decision. Try it - and let me know if you can actually follow the chain of custody - it is beyond mind boggling. In any case, the County Board wants nothing to do with the judiciary, so you have to go to Indianapolis for any change - and it ain't easy. Just look at what Tom Dermody tried (and failed) to do with the property tax issue and the DLGF - no wonder he retired.

The appeals court doc is public and anyone can read it. I was looking to see if there were specific instructions regarding the court doc of the 12 minutes. There wasn't any concerning the file itself. May need help here as I am a complete amateur.

Larkin Appeal decision

The meat of the decision is:

1. The county prosecutors office did not have to appoint a special prosecutor because Z had been voted out, there was no way Neary and his crew would continue and Espar was free and clear of entanglements (or was he? - more later). The point to bar Z was moot.

So why then did Espar appoint a special prosecutor, Stanley Levco, from downstate, to try the case when he didn't have to? The family did agreed to this. It should be noted that Levco is the SP in a court case in Porter County - the felony strangulation and domestic battery charged against Lake County Councilman Jamal Washington. This also involves a martial case and a change of venue - described as a nightmare for everybody. (I will look around for Levco stuff later, but suffice to say he is having a pretty good pay day in NWI and will for the foreseeable future!)

see Judge does not revoke Washington's bond - NWI Times

2. The 12 minutes had no information that was unknown to all parties in the case.

Case dismissed.

I am trying to figure out why the new judge, Patrick Blankenship, would even care about Stanley Levco's admission that he had read the transcript of the 12 minutes. Believe it or not, this case material was like the first file atop the three boxes handed to the new special prosecutor. He apparently didn't read the appeals court decision (disturbing, knowing his pay rate). I am not sure how this file was marked, but he should have been on the look out for it. I was wondering if the clerk or court had any responsibility here, but idk - hard to say. if the Judge didn't care to put specific instructions in the decision (burn this or seal this or whatever), why should the clerk? But there has been some problems in general with clerk's operations (expressed by Alevizos in a prior hearing), but of course that office is up for grabs right now, so anything prior to the newly elected will be gently brushed under the rug. Again, problems? See you in Indianapolis.

I get that Levco confessed reading the file, but just read the decision - there is nothing in the 12 minutes. If Blankenship didn't read the appeals court ruling, talk about SOL - wow. But perhaps he will respect the appeals court decision and move on. I also think Espar might have mentioned the file to Levco - that this file existed and to look out for it, unless he thought it didn't matter. Still, I would think he would be a professional - tribal knowledge - and the fact that this was a high profile case and fraught with problems and one of very few felony cases of its kind. Goes to the question of what goes on in the judiciary offices of the county and who these guys are who get voted in. Unreal to me. Think of nurses who "hand off" patients after every shift. Guess they don't do that for felony cases here - too busy - doing...what exactly? Totally unprofessional at best. Lazy at worst. Or maybe Espar has connections to Larkin - don't know....yet.

here is an article about Levco

I care about civil rights. However, I care about the civil right to life more than I care about the right to defense lawyers that use every tactic under the sun to delay, cry foul, and generally muddy the waters.

People are dead. Guns were used to killed them.

You posses a gun, point it at an unarmed person and shoot them dead, you better be ready to accept the consequences and not bitch about how you're being so mistreated.

The guy seems completely nuts. Talk to him for 5 minutes (if you can get away from his ranting in less than an hour, good for you) and it's clear that he' living on another planet. What kind of person kills their wife "accidentally" and then runs around telling everyone they can find the most vile and hateful things about her and her family? If not nuts, then just pure evil.

It's probably better that they don't know. It's obvious BS.
