A Classic

State v. Julian Smith, Accusation No.: CR21705351, Glynn County State Court

Great Morning Julian!

Congratulations on your victory!

The criminal law cannot do anything about seeking a civil remedy for a wrongful arrest. The judge nor a jury could do anything about a civil recovery for wrongful arrest.

If you decide to sue the neighbor or the cop, you have to do so within two years of the incident. If you sue the cop under a state law theory, you have to give an anti litem notice to Glynn County within twelve months of the incident.

God did a wonderful work yesterday! “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us . . . .” Ephesians 3:20 (KJV).

God perfectly orchestrated all the events to an orderly, victorious conclusion. No person could have done that. Check out the divine dozen order of events:

You would not take any resolution, even the $60 cost;
The state oversold its case;
Maria Logue, the most vociferous prosecutor on the case, could not be found at the time the court called the case;
Jerry Ramsey, the other prosecutor, tried to up the $60 to $300, to no avail;
The judge did not care about the money;
The judge saw the hole in the state’s case;
The neighbor got caught in her lies;
The neighbor had to admit the truth although she was committed to lying;
This gutted the state’s case;
I had told you from the beginning that the state could not prove she owed the logs;
The court dismissed the case without any money owed; and
You stopped talking so that you did not snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

All in all, we had a successful day.

Again, Congratulations.

Have a blessed and highly favored day!
