Madisonville, Kentucky - More criminal litigation
is being waged against Thomas C. Padgett of Massachusetts by his
Scientologist ex Laura Vannoy Padgett.

     A motion was filed with the Hopkins Circuit Court by local
Western Kentucky prosecutor David Massamore, alleging that Mr. Padgett
violated his probation because of an OUI arrest back in December of
2000.   The motion brief reads
rather oddly because it acknowledges the recent March 2002 Ky. Court
of Appeals ruling of himself (Massamore) and the trial court Judge
Boteler committing judicial error in railroading Tom in a prior
conviction of alleged child support charges that was overturned by the
higher court as most definitely wrong!  Much of the language and
attachments to the brief are consistent with the harassment, slander,
and character assaults Padgett has received on the A.R.S. News Group
by anonymous posters
using the names of,,,, and others. 

     Massamore makes false statements in his motion brief
by stating that Padgett pleaded "no contest" to the charges
in Massachusetts that he claims has violated his KY probation.  Court
documents in the Massachusetts, clearly
indicate that Padgett signed a "Continuence Without a Finding" form on
February 4th whereby the case gets dismissed altogether in a year on
February 4, 2003 if no further driving record infractions occur within
that time frame.

     Further suspicious findings were discovered in October 2000
investigations whereby local prosecutor Massamore was a close and
personal neighbor of Scientologist Laura Vannoy in an affluent
subdivision of the Western Kentucky hamlet.

     This motion hearing to revoke Mr. Padgett's probation
and send him back to serve more prison time, is scheduled
for June 3, 2002.  A history of the Laura Padgett 10 year litigation
bombardment against her declared SP ex husband can be found at:
A new website more focused on the cultic "legal harassment" and Fair
Game application condoned by the local good ole boys in this
jurisdiction is under construction.  Go to: to view the beginnings.

     Padgett's only comment to these new charges was;
"It's very scary to be the target of the cult's hit list. The higher
ups in the Church of the Holy Law Suit
otherwise known as Dianetics / Scientology, must really
hate me to continue such harsh efforts to silence and punish me the
way they have done. I am a bit upset now, but
I will have more to say later.  You can count on that. But I supposed
now, I'll have to cancel a mid-June trip to Orlando, Florida to attend
and possibly speak at the American Family Foundation conference on
child and family abuse by cults. Where's the frig'n FBI when you
really need them?"

This update is sadly very accurate.  However the quote of me as saying I
am "a bit upset" at these new legal darts is not!   More like "really
