He was checked and cleared prior to the Boston event, and as the event had yet to occur there was no reason at that point in time to consider that in
the future such a thing would happen. He was not cleared of the Boston event, he was cleared of the suspicions that the unnamed foreign government
had requested he be investigated for the year before.
In regards to the Boston even he was not checked or cleared of involvement in that incident which resulted in 3 deaths and multiple other serious
In regards to this specific offense, the police, courts, and government have probable cause that indicates there is sufficient evidence indicating his
possible involvement in the crime to address the issue in a court of law.
Although one is supposed to be considered innocent until proven guilty, the courts must balance their decisions while considering risk to public
I have a great example of this process for you. After the apt complex I was living in repeatedly failed to comply with our agreed upon reasonable
accommodation which required of them nothing more than a simple 2 minute phone call, but the phone call, or more appropriately the failure of them to
make that phone call would result in serious injury and possible death for me. My husband took additional supporting documentation to the office of
the property manager, placed them on her desk and told her to include this information in my file so they could not say they didn't know in the
future. I was on the phone the entire time, she kept the line open the entire time he was in the office so I was able to hear every single thing that
occurred. She responded by screaming at him that she didn't care and wasn't going to look at the documents, she ordered him out of her office on
threat of contacting the police. He said "fine, I didn't want to be here anyway" and left and was back home before she disconnected the phone when
I attempted to speak to her again.
A week later while I was in the hospital recovering from that very same failure on their part to call me, the police arrived at our apt while I was on
the phone with my husband, they informed him that they needed to question him about the incident and the sooner he got off the phone with me and went
the sooner he would be back home.
Once outside they put cuffs on him and informed him that they had a warrant for his arrest, but did not inform him of the cause for this. He was in
the township jail for an hour before they explained the reason for his arrest, the property manager filed a battery complaint against him, claiming
that the papers he laid on her desk fell off and hit her, and that he told her he was going to "kick her you know what". The verbal threat I can
verify never occurred, and immediately after she disconnected the call on the day of the incident I immediately called back to implore her to have
some mercy and comply with the agreement. She informed me that she knocked the papers all over the floor, had to pick them up and threw them in the
garbage, that there was no way she was going to read them.
If effect my husband was arrested for "battery by paper", he was never given the opportunity or questioned during this part of the process in
regards to "his side of the story", it didn't matter. He was later taken to the county jail as I did what I could to get released from the
hospital against my physicians best judgement, (because the police told him he didn't need his wallet) he had no money for bail, or to call me. The
next morning he entered a plea of Not guilty over a television monitor interface, and the judge granted him bail of $1000. I was able to get home but
we did not have $1000 on hand so he had to wait a total of 4 days in jail for me to come up with the bail. The case was in the courts for over a
year, with him requesting a jury trial as he was innocent, and them attempting to plea bargain by increasing the charges if he would plead guilty, by
then they knew that if their battery by paper came before a jury they probably would be laughed out of court or charged with malicious prosecution.
Eventually they gave in, but he didn't get any form of compensation for the 4 days in jail and the year of running back and forth to court.
The fact is once a determination of probable cause is assessed, a person can be detained until they make bail or until their case goes to court, that
is when the innocent until proven guilty comes into play, but it's up to the person accused to prove their innocence, it is somewhat taken for
granted since their complaint is recorded under oath, that the accuser has provided honest and factual proof of the validity of their complaint.
