Tom Padgett Affidavit in Criminal Action # 98-CR-0067
COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY
HOPKINS CIRCUIT COURT
MADISONVILLE, KENTUCKY 42431
CRIMINAL ACTION NO. 98-CR-067
COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY PLAINTIFF
THOMAS C. PADGETT DEFENDANT
Comes now the defendant, who after being duly sworn, states
the following in regarding flagrant crimes in which he has committed
not only in this state but in Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, and
Massachusetts. In recent months Commonwealth Attorney David G.
Massamore requested of the defendant's counsel that an affidavit
be executed and signed openly confessing to crimes he has flagrantly
committed. This is that affidavit for the Commonwealth's 4th Judicial
Circuit Court's presecutor.
1. My name is Thomas Carter Padgett.
2. I reside in South Orleans, Massachusetts.
3. In the summer of 1978, I was deceptively recruited into the
Scientology/Dianetics mental health sect by Laura Kay Vannoy of
Madisonville, Kentucky. All experts studied in aberrational sects
confirm this group as a dangerous and destructive organization. After
spending thousands and thousands of dollars and reaching the much coveted
level of "CLEAR" in 1984 at the Cincinnati, Ohio Org., I quietly left
the group in September of 1987 and went off-lines with the Washington,
4. In December of 1991, I read a copy of Time Magazine's May 6,
1991 cover story "Scientology - The Cult of Greed," that justified my
prior beliefs that this group was a scam and definitely not a religion
as one would believe from the use of the word "church" in it's public
and legally copyrighted name. However I became allerted and alarmed
page 1 of 5
my young children and their mother were still in the cult engaged in
LRH training routines and Dianetic mental "auditing" processes.
5. In July of 1992, I committed the crime of speaking out
against the group's harmful practices and policies. At the time,
I did not realize it was a crime and thought I was just exercising basic
1st and 14th amendment rights promised by the Constitution of the
United States and guaranteed by the governments of the Fifty (50)
6. In 1993, I continued to flagrantly commit this crime. The
secular laws drafted by the group's founder science fiction writer
L Ron Hubbard, concisely note:
"IT IS A HIGH CRIME TO PUBLICLY DEPART SCIENTOLOGY"
as written on page 205 in the book "Introduction to Scientology Ethics,"
Bridge Publications, Los Angeles, CA., 1989.
7. An investigation with the Nashville, TN Scientology Celebrity
Center, it was revealed that I was viewed as a PTS (potential trouble
source,) and declared an SP enemy and an "asshole" by church officials,
when all I thought I was doing was being concerned with real potential
trouble sources and for those facts in regarding matters of my family
and loved ones would not be suppressed in a civil litigation instigated
by Laura Vannoy Padgett against myself in her closely guarded
8. As a declared SP enemy with the cult and ultimately convicted
of this alleged high crime, my sentence was to be "fair gamed" per
HCO Policy Letter 10/18/67 Issue IV which is the sect's Enemy-SP Order.
Said Co$/LRH order states that I A "May be deprived of property, or
injured by any means by any scientologist with out discpline of the
scientolo-gist." And that I "May be tricked, sued, lied to, and
9. The result of being fairgamed by scientologists including
Laura Vannoy Padgett, for my continuing to flagrantly commit this
page 2 of 5
high crime (alleged,) the following events have happened to me and
the lives of my loved ones in the past seven years:
- I have been "disconnected" from my children per LRH policy.
- My mother, Shirley T. Padgett, now deceased, was also declared
an SP enemy in 1993 per the Nashville, TN Dianetics Foundation
- I have been litigated into oblivion by Scientologist Laura Vannoy
exactly per LRH/Co$ doctrine to "use the law to harass and ruin."
- I have been set-up for fictional crimes.
- I have been stalked by scientologists at my places of
residence and work per HCO Black PR Policy with "Dead Agent Packs."
- My homes in Michigan and Florida were vandalized and burglarized.
- I've received threats against my life.
- I've received anynomous "hate" mail with the purpose to scare
and hush me.
- My employers have received anynomous character assassination
letters with claims that I was a religious bigot and morally
- Former employees of mine have been stalked and approached by
Co$ spies including a offering of sizable cash bribe to stay
away from me and my children. See attached 3/11/96 Thompson report.
- I've been tailed and spied on by unlicensed private investigators
connected to the Church of Scientology. See P.1. report.
- I've been picketed against by cult members., carrying signs that
read "Stay home deadbeat dads." 12/6/97 St. Pete Times cover
- Lies about me and Laura Padgett's civil and criminal litigations
have been printed in the local Madisonville Messenger Newspaper.
- I've had my U.S. mail and Post Office Box tampered with ( a
federal criminal offense.)
- My children's mail from me has been sensored. Phone calls from
me to my children are monitored against court orders not to be.
- My once successful career has been destroyed and reduced from a
six (6) figure income in 1993 to a four (4) figure income in
1996, 1997, and 1998. 1999 also.
- Material and expert witnesses that have testified on my behalf
in Laura Padgett's civil litigation have been harassed in
various manners and one noting "this is a big case for senior
executives in scientology" in a sworn affidavit.
page 3 of 5
- I have been a victim of various bait n' switch tactics employed
by lawyers of scientologist Laura Padgett that includes the
use of a fake expert psychologist appointed by the Court,
misdemeanor plea agreements, probation transfer promises
devious return of child support checks, unilateral discovery
processing (not bilateral disclosure for both parties,) and the
use of officers of the court who are known acquaintences of the
maternal pro-scientology family the Vannoys in Madisonville, KY.
- My children have been "disconnected" from paternal family members
such as grandparent1 aunts, uncles, and many cousins.
- I have had fees, costs, and expenses assessed against me in
civil court proceedings far beyond my income to pay them.
10. Currently, the Attorney for the plaintiff in this criminal
action is moving the Court on April 10, 2000, to convict and sentence
me to five (5) years in the state prison for new but totally erroneous
allegations of more crimes committed, a plea agreement being violated by
speaking with the press in these matters, and accusing my lawyers of
aiding and abetting me in flagrant misdemeanor crimes and criminal acts.
11. The judge in the civil action against me, which is also the
judge in this case, ruled on April 4, 1994, that I had the right to
bring forth evidence and testimony in regarding the harm caused by the
scientology/Dianetic belief system back then and in any future post final
ruling litigation. Additionally, the Kentucky Court of Appeals noted
in a January 30, 1997 Opinion that "The trial court was at all times
receptive to Scientology issues relative to harm...." Thusly, I
make this sworn affidavit a testimony in the belief that I have the
rights to do so, and assert there is no statute in the Commonwealth of
Kentucky that makes "Publicly Departing Scientology" a high crime or any
felony or misdemeanor offense whatsoever. There are no statutes
in the states that I have lived in since Laura Padgett's civil and
criminal actions against me have been waged - Michigan, Florida, and
Massachusetts or any U.S. state. There are no federal laws in existence
that supports that it is a crime to publicy speak out against the abusive
page 4 of 5
lethal conduct and behavior of Scientologists and the
practice of "Child Dianetics - Processing of Children."
I confess openly and freely to committing secular high
crimes and being severely punished and destroyed as a result.
Sworn to under oath on this the 5th day of APRIL, 2000.
