Bend, Oregon – On August 15, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. Roger Weidner is once again appearing in Deschutes County Circuit Court on the Wishon v. Torres case (case history at usobserver.com). Claud Ingram, a totally corrupted attorney from Eugene, Oregon will also appear to put on another of his dog and pony shows with numerous Deschutes County Deputy Sheriffs along side to protect his towering 6’8” frame from former prosecutor Roger Weidner, who is almost half his size.
Weidner has been demanding to speak in numerous Oregon courts over the past 15 years when he has believed an innocent person was getting rail-roaded. Weidner has never once been violent and has won numerous times in court for people. In some Bend, Oregon cases he has successfully kept honest business owners from losing their entire estates.
Recently, Weidner sent a certified letter to Deschutes County Sheriff Les Stiles and the Sheriff refused to accept the letter. The letter to Stiles and one to Oregon’s Attorney General Hardy Myers will follow this article.
In reading the letters I find that the statements made by Weidner are ones that he honestly believes and the statements about attorney Claud Ingram are totally believed by this writer. Ingram is well accustomed to filing false and frivolous lawsuits, which the Observer has been the target of on four such occassions. It is a fact that Weidner has made many accusations and it’s also a fact that neither Sheriff Stiles nor any other law enforcement officer has lifted a finger to investigate these cases.
The US~Observer is proud to publish the following letters to the Editor. We have an absolute qualified right to publish public record and there is no question that the letters and the lawsuits we have covered concerning Weidner are more than public. It is also a fact that Ingram can’t stand the public knowing what is going on with his lawsuits, and that is why he has sued the Observer on four separate instances.
The Observer hopes that Sheriff Stiles would step back a moment to see what’s really going on with these cases. Also, I would like to know when the Oregon legislature took away the right a person has to make a “citizens arrest.” Roger Weidner attempted to make a citizen’s arrest against Ingram and instead of law enforcement acting on that arrest they have chosen to attack Weidner.
Possibly it’s time for the Observer to open an office in Bend, Oregon.
Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office
On June 7, 2004 I hand delivered to your office a letter; a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2; describing the unprecedented criminal abuse I have been subjected to, by members of the Oregon judiciary, for exposing in court, on the record, the wide-spread corruption in the Oregon judicial system.
In that letter I indicated I had upcoming court appearances in the courtrooms of Judges Forte, Tiktin and Billings. I told you in that letter, “I am expecting to be able to make a full record of the criminal conduct of those involved in attempting to steal Patricia Wishon’s property at those hearings. Your attendance at those hearings would be appreciated.”
Instead of your presence as requested I found Captain Edwards and Sergeant McCallister from your Department giving the treacherous thieving attorney Claud Ingram escort service into the courtroom. When I asked McCallister his name, he in a professional manner told me his name. When I asked Edwards his name he, in a rude, sarcastic, animated way said, as he sneeringly shook his head slowly, “I’m not going to tell you anything”. In the information I am enclosing with your June 7, 2005 letter is the story appearing in the US OREGON OBSERVER, Exhibit 4, describing my arrest of Claud Ingram for bribery, subornation of perjury, conspiracy and theft in the Deschutes County Courthouse on March 9, 2004.
After my hostile confrontation with Edwards, Patricia Wishon contacted your office and requested a meeting with you. Instead of you attending the meeting as requested you had Edwards and several deputies conduct the meeting. When I walked in the meeting room and before I could say a word Edwards’ face turned beet-red and he angrily ordered me from the room. When I told him I was a former prosecutor and he needed to hear what I had to say about the corruption in the Deschutes County Court system he angrily ordered the two deputies to forcibly remove me from the meeting. As the deputies, one tightly clutching each arm, marched me down the hall they said I was going to have to wait in the waiting room. Then when we reached the waiting room they asked where my car was then marched me out of the building, each still tightly holding my arm, and told me to go sit in my car. Edwards and the deputies’ behavior made a mockery of the signs in your lobby describing the high standard and ideals your office stands for.
At a subsequent hearing when I was again threatened by the judge for attempting to speak truthfully in court about the corruption, we returned to your office and again asked to speak to you because we had an afternoon hearing that same day and wanted you or someone from your office to attend. We were told that neither you nor Under Sheriff Blanton were available. We were told that all Sheriff personnel were out on an emergency. When we returned to court the courtroom was filled with deputies. I pointed out Ingram, sitting at the counsel table, to my supporters present and again condemned him for his treacherous, shameless thievery. A plain-clothed individual, sitting in the audience, who later identified himself as Under Sheriff Blanton said: “Oh, sit down Weeedner and stop your yapping”.
On February 7, 2005 I again appeared in the Deschutes County Courthouse for a hearing. I had repeatedly requested, several days before the hearing that I be allowed to video the proceedings. Since I did not know who was going to hear the case I went into presiding Judge Sullivan’s office to see if my request to video had been granted. Edwards was sitting in Judge Sullivan’s chambers when I entered the office. Before I could say a word Edwards, again snarling and surly, grabbed me by the arm and forcibly removed me from Judge Sullivan’s office saying, “you get out of here right now”.
Before the hearing on February 7, 2005 I had my twenty supporters stand with me while I confronted seven deputies from your office outside the courtroom. I told the deputies I was a former public prosecutor, who for the past l7 years had been fighting the corruption in the Oregon court system. I told those deputies, under the supervision of Sargeant Espinoza, that for attempting to speak in court about the corruption I was being arrested by the deputies on the orders of the corrupt judges protecting the thieving attorneys. What happened after I entered the court on February 7, 2005 and March 7, 2005 is set forth in Exhibit 3.
Another hearing on the Wishon case is set for 3:30 PM on August l5, 2005 in Judge Brady’s courtroom in the Deschutes County Courthouse. I am again requesting a meeting with you before the hearing to insure that I will not be again violently assaulted or arrested by your deputies when I attempt to speak in court about the corruption in the Deschutes County Court system on August l5, 2005.
I want to remind you, Sheriff Stiles and your deputies; as well as all the other public officials who are receiving a copy of this letter; that the oath of office that each of you take, as public officials, is not to protect corrupt thieving bureaucrats, attorneys, and judges from stealing innocent people’s children, land and other property in “sham” often “star chamber” proceedings. The oath that all of you public officials take is to uphold and defend the constitutional rights of We The People, your employers, to receive “due process” and “equal protection” of the law in the courts in this state. If you, or the other public officials receiving this letter, are not able to uphold your oath of office you should resign. If you will not uphold your oath and refuse to resign then we in the patriot community will continue to expose your corrupt behavior to the public until you are shamed from office. Please have Mary in your office contact me at your earliest convenience to arrange a meeting before the August l5, 2005 hearing. The other numbered exhibits I am enclosing for your review are:

1. Special Grand Jury hearing 2-24-04
2. My 8-27-04 letter to Judge Tiktin

Attorney General Hardy Myers
For years I have been keeping you posted concerning the outrageous abuse I have been subjected to for exposing the wide-spread corruption in the Oregon court system. About a year ago I along with Wilbur and Pamela Gaston, and others, confronted you at the conclusion of an Oregon Law Commission meeting being held in one of the hearing rooms at the Oregon State Capitol. I told you that We The People of the State of Oregon would not tolerate the unbridled corruption in the Oregon court system that was resulting in innocent people having their children, lands and other property shamelessly stolen by corrupt thieving, bureacrats and attorneys, some of whom are judges, in “sham” often “star chamber” type proceedings where the outcome was a foregone conclusion. Namely where the corrupt always win and the innocent always loose.
I have been keeping not only you, but also Governor Kulongoski and all of the Oregon Supreme Court and Court of Appeal judges as well as all legislators up to date on the on-going battle I have been having with a group of corrupt attorneys, some judges, in Deschutes County Oregon. This group is trying to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars in property belonging to Lapine property owner Patricia Wishon. In the first instance, gigelo, wife-beater, and con man, Santiago Torres romanced Wishon and got her to marry him on the spur of the moment. He over night turned into a vicious wife beater who ultimately ended up doing 6 months in jail for an assault on her.
Wishon hired attorney Albertazzi to obtain a divorce with Torres getting nothing because of his treacherous cruelty. Instead, Albertazzi got attorney Linda Hasse to represent Torres and openly colluded with them to defraud Wishon. When Wishon found out about Albertazzi’s treachery she fired him. Though fired Albertazzi prepared and submitted to Arbitrator Burgott a judgment giving Torres, Wishon’s property worth 3 to 400 thousand dollars. Before Burgott signed the judgment Wishon notified Burgott by mail and phone not to sign the fraudulent judgment. Though notified, Burgott signed the judgment and judges Gary Thompson, Stephen Tiktin, Donald Forte, Jack Billings, Donald Sullivan and Lloyd O’Neal have been openly colluding with attorneys Claud Ingram, Anthony Albertazzi and Linda Hasse to execute the fraudulently obtained judgment.
For assisting Wishon in exposing this shameless racketeering activity by a group of very corrupt attorneys, some judges, I have been recently violently assaulted and arrested and jailed in Deschutes County by Deschutes County Sheriff Deputies on the orders of the corrupt judges involved. Attached is the letter with exhibits I recently sent to Deschutes County Sheriff Les Stiles detailing the abuse I have been subjected to by deputies under his command. Instead of responding to the certified letter, Sheriff Stiles, a paid public employee, who has taken an oath of office to uphold the constitutional rights of the citizens, refused to accept the mail. I am attaching as Exhibit A the “refused” certified mail. Because of the depth of the corruption in Deschutes County I am again subpoenaing you and all those listed below to the next hearing on this case scheduled in Bend, Oregon on August l5, 2005 at 3:30pm.
