Re: Case # 00-CA-2693-MR - appeal of Case # 98-CR-0067

Attorney Michael Lemke of Louisville, Kentucky reported today that the
appeal of the scientologist backed felony conviction of Thomas C. Padgett
of Massachusetts, was overturned in the Kentucky Court of Appeals.
  The actual higher court ruling will be available on the internet in
detail at: by
the middle of next week.

What does this mean in real life?

1. Tom Padgett is no longer a "convicted felon."
2. Hopkins County, KY Judge Boteler was WRONG (again)
3. Fighting the Hubbard cult's "legal harassment & ruin" doctrine can
be won with conviction, persistance, and international support.

4. Most importantly is that the Scientologist mother
who was the ONLY complaining witness in this criminal indictemnt case
that advanced to a conviction without a jury trial, can no longer tell
her children that their father is a "convicted criminal" to drown them
in more cult thought reform efforts using the legal system (and media)
as informational control ploys to alter their young critical thinking

Congratulations to this lonely parent's victory against the Cult of
Greed absent of gender issues.  You deserve it!  Further credits go to
Hon. Mike Lemke and the website of: too.
