It appears John Dean Moxley a Brevard County Judge has sat on the bench for injustice again. Moxley, a judge in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Court located in Brevard County, previously denied an injunction for protection that resulted in a 23 year old girl being shot to death. It appears Moxley consistently favors chaotic and senseless decisions. Does this judge have common sense or are the actions of this judge intentionally malicious towards society and the public good in general?
“As a judge you have to follow the law. You’re not omniscient. God bless her soul.”, were the words Judge Moxley said to the Orlando Sentinel after his poor decision making resulted in a young girl’s death. WFTV Chanel 9 News covered the previous story and the documents were extremely revealing of the gross negligence committed by this judge.
Alissa Blanton was only 23 when she was gunned down and bled to death in her husband’s arms dying shortly after at the hospital. “I drove by your house to see if it was true. I can honestly tell you, and this is not because of the way you treated me, that is the ugliest nastiest color I have ever seen on a house, especially in fl,” were the chilling words in an email by Troy, who gunned her down after Moxley denied Blanton’s petition for protection.
“The evidence was there and, in retrospect, I am puzzled why he wouldn’t have erred on the side of caution,” WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said.
WFTV, obtained a document from the Judicial Qualifications Commission showing Judge Moxley is under review over a complaint made in another case. He has been accused of making a ruling in that case without thoroughly reviewing the case file. Apparently, this isn’t the first time he has been accused of being soft on crime:
Career criminal Steven Lunn said in May, 2003: “I like Moxley. He knows me. I got a problem, he’ll take care of it.”
Moxley released violent criminal Derrick Henderson in February, 2003 on his signature days before he was to go to prison for six years. He disappeared.
Moxley lowered an accused child molester’s bond so he could get out of jail after being accused of stalking 12- and 13-year-old girls.
Judge Moxley has been on the bench for 25 years. He was re-elected in 2008 without opposition. He is up for re-election in 2014. He makes $142,000/year.
Today Judge Moxley has continued his legacy of chaos and abuses of discretion again, as he claims he is not omniscient, or all knowing as defined. This time he is on the record and recklessly disregarding documents from the Florida bar. Judge Moxley stated “I’m not noticing anything from the Florida Bar”, as he was months prior, given copies of documents pertaining to the fraudulent adoption plan taking place in his courtroom. One of the documents was a Florida bar response from Attorney Scarlett Davidson which put forth to the Florida Bar she had not filed any adoption petition and that no one was trying to adopt the child.However, attached to the notice to Judge Moxley in the fraudulent adoption case was a certified copy of the cover sheet stating it was for an adoption.
The child was kidnapped by Yvonne Howard and hidden for over half a month who then appeared in court and lodged the defense she had no problems with the father. Yvonne Howard, to be clear, as a finding of fact hid the child without any court order and prevented any contact with the child. This fact was found by the Honorable Judge Crawford who was the original judge on the case. Yvonne Howard was then clearly allowed to commit perjury and alienate the child by violating court orders without any recourse due to all the procedural and civil rights violations. Yvonne Howard testified that the father had never harmed the child and the department of children and families declared they did not file the petition through out the case. In fact it was a private petition by Yvonne Howard and her attorney Scarlett Davidson.
Since you have to terminate parental rights for an adoption various actions were pursued by Yvonne Howard and Scarlett Davidson under color of law. These actions even violated federal law as Supervising Attorney Cassandra Elken stated to Judge Moxley months before. Elken is the supervising attorney for the Florida Department of Children and Families who stood up and stated “Federal laws were violated in this case”. Attorney Scarlett Davidson even resorted to witness tampering by having the father arrested for serving her a subpoena to get her testimony. Since there was no abuse abandonment or neglect, Judge Moxley allowed Attorney Scarlett Davidson to amend her petition to terminate parental rights for her having the father arrested. More news to come as Judge Moxley appears to have acted under color of law with his own words and actions on May 29th 2013.
