Do they have the evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Elizabeth knew that there was cocaine in the vehicle she was driving the night she and Sean were arrested?
If Elizabeth and Sean would have had family support after they were arrested in Abilene, they might have been able to bond out until trial and find someone smart enough to challenge the possession charge. No one in their family was willing to get involved. They were on an island alone with no support.
Since the heroin was found in Sean’s belongings, how could they charge both with possession?
Should they have been charged with transporting controlled substances across state lines? Isn’t that a Federal Offense. Does the prosecution have a chain of evidence. Dealer to Sean? Supplier to dealer? Isn’t this information important? Could Sean have made a deal with the prosecutor for the name of his supplier for reduced charge?
Who purchased the heroin? Did Sean and Elizabeth go to a dealer together and hand in hand to deliver payment for drugs? Where is the proof? Is it they or just Sean? Sean has signed an affidavit saying Elizabeth knew nothing about the drugs.
What is of course Heroin
When and where did they buy the drugs in Texas, on the way to Texas? Let’s see the evidence.
Was the Federal government informed about this arrest?
It wasn’t important after the arrest to try to determine if either Sean or Elizabeth were hooked on heroin. Only blood for type and cross matching was taken . I guess it’s ok to house possible addicts in with the general population. What could go wrong.
There is an Opioid problem in this country. Sean is a victim by getting hooked. Elizabeth is a victim because the powers that be will not see the truth that she was unaware of the heroin.
Elizabeth works only a bit because she’s often ill. Can’t get insurance because of a class 3 felony she’s not guilty of. Can’t afford the probation fee she’s forced to pay. Can’t pay the urine analysis she’s forced to pay. Rent and utility money is an issue, food money is an issue. I take care of those things for her when I can. The probation people know how she gets money to pay for things, the D.A knows how she gets money to pay for things, the judge knows how she has to get money to pay for things.
it’s five and one half years into a six year probation term. They have no evidence they have no proof. Her son was in posession not her. They were in the same car at the time. Opened and shut case to them. Ha.
Most people get off of these charges after three or four years. Why Liz is so lucky to still be on this ride?
Diabetes, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia. All expensive with no insurance.
I know this is just one story. There others in bad situations. I understand.
Does it bother anyone though?
Liz sent a letter to the presiding judge and the D.A. No reply.
I sent a request to change.org for a petition to send to the Attorney General of Texas. No reply from change.org.
I sent a message to a local T.V. station in Abilene to see if they thought Liz’s ordeal was a story. No reply.
Sean almost died in their custody. He complained of pain and fever. They took him to court instead. He had cancer. They delayed his treatment. If it wasn’t for a few programs, my money and some good doctors, Sean would be dead.
He finally got to a halfway house. Of course you have to give them anything you make for rent and your probation. He wanted to give his mother some money because she is living from hand to mouth. Now he’s in jail for another six months.
Her story is here also.
August 15, 2016.
Another meeting with the judge, another kick in the head.
Why didn’t he mention the mandatory drug class a few months ago when Liz had a formal meeting with him? A three month class. No details really. He says Liz agreed to it when she was released on probation in 2012. She has no paperwork from that time.
Liz has to get by for another three more months before the judge will consider letting her off of probation. Since her last meeting with the judge she has lost part of her left foot to diabetes. Her pain and suffering mean nothing to judge wheeler. No caps for him. No respect for him. If she had a lawyer; maybe she could fight his mean justice.
More to follow.
