Freedom doesn’t exist without the law, the law doesn’t exist without justice, and justice doesn’t exist without an unbiassed law. If so, blacks are never free! [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Dear Honorable Judges: Please forgive me for asking the following question. Evidence shows that I was not there when I was made. Why am I being punished for conspiracy to commit black fraud? United V. Willy Toussaint 0:13-cr-6024-BB I was falsely accused, and falsely convicted. AS a result, I have at $208,000.00 restitution to pay with no evidence. Three allege fraudulent accounts used to sentenced me, allegedly that Chase employees open the accounts on my command. The Appellate Court rejected count 2, 3 for misconduct of JPMorgan Chase Bank, during my national origin discrimination lawsuit against Chase. The prosecutor had a written statement from Ms. Warren Wimberley who opened count 1 stating that I was not part of count one. The court has my passport which shows that I was not even in the country when the account was opened. The prosecutor himself told Attorney Abigail Baker, “This guy was just used.” Stanley Cherry who staged the crime told investigator Norman that he was forced by Chase to stage the crime. Chase told him, “Do it, or your job!” This is documented. Due to lack of advocacy, the Appellate Court didn’t return the case for a trial. I was sentenced on October 2014 accused of having defrauded Chase $208,000.00, on January 2013. On September 2014, I lost my condo at the Deer Field Beach Court to the Condo Association for unpaid fees of $345.00 on January 2013. The association, and I agreed that I’d pay $850.00 a month, until the court fees, lawyer’s fee, and unpaid fees are paid. I made my first payment of $850.00, on the first week of October. I lost my condo because of the incarceration. Civil Judge Lazarus granted my request for a trial on June 12th to see about getting my condo back. Case No: CACE16016124 What is the purpose of my punishment other than being black and poor having the audacity to sue Chase? The prosecutor has an email I sent to Attorney Jordan incriminating myself. “They give me $200.00 when the accounts were opened.” This is not my statement. This was what Attorney Abigail Baker told me when I told her that I took the guys to Chase Bank simply to help them with their ID issues. On November 2012, Stanley Cherry called and told me that when I have Haitians that needs help, he’ll help. This is how the crime was staged. The guys told me that they only have one ID they couldn’t open account. The law asks for one ID to open bank account. The banks ask for two. A personal banker sometimes bypasses that. Ms. Abigail told me, “The juries will not go for this something for nothing statement.” I thought it was right to use this as defense. That explains why law enforcement was not called when the accounts were opened, and Chase voluntarily paid checks out of those known fraudulent accounts, on January 2013 to build the damage of the crime. The government has the entrapment recording but fail to present the recanted recording. Therefore, the entrapment recording is inadmissible in court. Every contact with Chase is Chase calling me, except the recanted conversation. He who wants asks, why is it always Chase calling? Why in addition to having been falsely convicted, I must do five years of probation? The Court denies every motion I file for justice base on the fact that I plead guilty. The law is about doing right; it is not about being right. Federal rule 32(e ) provides that the court may allowed defendant to withdraw guilty plea before sentence is imposed, if the defendant shows a fair and just reason. My fair and just reason is that I was with attorney Michael Smith to avoid pleading guilty with Attorney Abigail Baker. I entered the plea on Friday. If on Monday I said I wouldn’t have entered the plea had it not been the error of the attorney, the reasonable probability is clear. The core value of our justice system is equal justice for all. If justice is served to everyone, I am famished for justice. Respectfully Willy Toussaint 215 NW 127 Street Miami, FL 33168 754-267-5907
Willy Toussaint 0:13-cr-6024-BB The following information was sent to the Florida Governor Rick Scott via email. All public record electronic mail sent through this website will be posted to Project Sunburst at http://www.flgov.com/sunburst , My name is smeared over the internet as fraudster, I am respectfully requesting that my story is broadcasted and published to clear my name. Governor, you took an oath to help people of Florida; minorities are included. I’ve been in prison for the past 37 months due to procedural error of the District Court. I’m about to start a 5 years’ probation. JPMorgan Chase Bank has about 4900 employees. If Chase can legally put me in prison for reporting them to the law, under what law the rest of the employees are protected? A guilty was forced on me by Court-Appointed Attorney Michael Smith on a Friday; on Monday I said, I was forced. The District Court denied my motion to withdraw the plea. I was incarcerated. I’m still in prison. Accepting a plea is not necessarily the evidence of guilt acceptance. See the mass shooting of the 9 Buddhists Monks, in Phonics, AZ in August 9, 1991. Three innocent guys pleaded guilty for the crime. The real perpetrators were later apprehended. The procedure is, “defendant who seeks to reverse a guilty plea, must show reasonable probability that had it not been to the error, he wouldn’t have entered the plea.” Michael Smith was not appointed to me because Public Defender Abigail Baker is a lady. He was appointed to me because I refused to plead guilty, and she was insisting that I plead guilty. If I entered a plea with the Attorney who replaced her on Friday, on Monday I said I wouldn’t have entered the plea, the reasonable probability is clear and concise. The denial of the motion to withdraw the plea is a procedural error. Background! JPMorgan Chase Bank orchestrated, and staged a crime to get away from my national origin discrimination lawsuit, without the involvement of law enforcement on November 2012. In conjunction with the government Chase wiretapped to induced me to the bank on December 2012. I considered the offer, then I recanted from the conspiracy. I told Chase, “This is wrong! I don’t want any of it!” Chase voluntarily paid checks out of those known fraudulent accounts on January 2013, to build the evidence of the crime. My case closed on July 2013. I was arrested at my house for conspiracy to commit bank fraud on October 2013. The Appellate Court rejected the alleged fraudulent accounts for misconduct of Chase. The prosecutor withheld an exculpatory evidence that is excluding me from the crime. A written statement from a Chase employee stating that I was not part of the crime. Assistant D.A. Mac Anton told Abigail Baker, “This guy was just used.” Stanley Chery who staged the crime admits that he was under the direction of Chase to stage the crime. The recording evidence was recorded after the accounts were open, and before the damage of the crime occurred. It is the result mechanism of the plot. I am financially challenged to hire an attorney. The District Court denies every self-prepared motion I filed for a trial. If the District Court deny a motion to avoid the unnecessary spending of the taxpayer’s money, it’s ok! If it’s because the government cannot prove a case beyond reasonable doubt, it’s obstruction of justice. I’m not asking to dismiss the case. All I’m asking for is to vacate my sentence to allow me to enjoy my constitutional right to a fair trial. No incompetent attorney will put me in prison again. If anything, I will put myself in prison. I will pro ce as I’m supervised by an attorney.
