ADA breaks the law to obtain a conviction
By Joseph Snook
Bend, OR – On March 22, 2012, Nicholas Waldbillig was speechless as the jury’s verdict was read to him in court, “Guilty.” Nicholas had just been convicted of kidnapping along with multiple sex crimes. His sentence, 20 years in prison for raping/kidnapping his ex-girlfriend Julie Driskell.
He had previously turned down several plea deals thinking it was all just a bad dream that would be sorted out once the facts, or the un-truths (prosecutors lies) were presented to jurors. In return, he expected the jurors to find him innocent; after all, he knew what did and didn’t happen, and he believed his innocence was clearly evident.
Unfortunately, the system doesn’t always work that way, and today, Nick is sitting in a prison cell fighting for justice. He not only claims his innocence, he believes important factors played a significant role in his conviction. His attorney, “wasn’t there” for him when it counted. Looking back, money was a big factor and Nick believes that, “Once the money ran out, so did the perception of legal representation.”
More concerning, Assistant District Attorney Kandy Gies (Prosecutor) reportedly threatened the “victim” with criminal charges if she didn’t give false testimony against Nicholas! Without the “victim’s” testimony, it was reported the facts didn’t represent a crime. Nicholas firmly believes that instead of dismissing the charges once the evidence showed his innocence, the prosecutor made sure to create the evidence by threatening Driskell. He believes that it was this “evidence” that convicted him in the eyes of the jury.
Julie Driskell, the alleged victim has avoided this writer like the plague. There are, and will continue to be reports involving her and this case until questions are answered. Witnesses stated, “her father Michael K. Driskell is a convicted sex offender,” who has an undeniably odd grasp over Julie’s mental state-of-mind and her unwillingness to communicate. It was also alleged that Julie’s mother Kathy A. Driskell is a, “patient at a California mental institution who suffers from multiple mental disorders.” Kathy’s alleged mental condition has caused concern for Nicholas as he tries to understand why Julie would accuse him of such horrible crimes he, “never committed.”
The Waldbillig Family
If Nicholas is correct in his assessment that Julie (his ex) was scared, and threatened into lying about the events, there’s still hope for him; hope that the three years he has already spent behind bars will be his last if Julie does what is right.
Julie Driskell has since moved from Bend, OR., and it was reported that she may have had a change of heart about helping imprison Nicholas for 20 years. If so, we strongly urge her to come forward. Lies perpetrated by government can cause extreme mental anguish. If Julie was threatened to frame Nicholas, there are advocates here to help. Time is a beautiful thing in this case. Statute of limitations have reportedly passed, so, if she was threatened by the prosecutor, she can now speak freely, without fear of being prosecuted. If Nicholas is guilty, then come forward, too. I know that news reports regarding a dark period of my life would be enough to make me put this issue to rest, one way or the other…
Julie Driskell – if not for the sake of Nicholas, do it for yourself. Help us confirm or lay our suspicions to rest. You deserve to get on with life, and if Nicholas is truly innocent, he absolutely deserves freedom.
Nicholas recently filed an appeal. He still believes in justice. This writer believes there’s much more to this story than what has been told and I will keep digging to inform the court of public opinion.
