Statute of Limitations

Blog Post

The allegations of misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh are spurious at best. There is not ONE SHRED of evidence that he did what one heavily coached woman says that he did 36 (or 35) years ago. The woman herself had a drinking problem in high school, her memory is foggy. People who she says were present when the Judge tossed her onto a bed (fully clothed) and never unclothed her, in the presence of classmates, deny that the incident ever took place.
The law does not provide for victims to use a way-back machine and bring matters from the dim and distant past forward for prosecution (treason, murder, etc. are exceptions to the rule). There is a statute of limitations for a reason. When a statute of limitations expires in a criminal case, the courts no longer have jurisdiction. In civil law, similar provisions known collectively as periods of prescription.  An accused can not have a fair trial. Some nations have no statute of limitations whatsoever, but in the United States, they exist.
(Fox News) Authorities in Maryland on Friday said they were prepared to conduct a state-level criminal investigation into sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh — provided that a victim comes forward.
The disclosure by Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger and Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy came Friday, the same day that President Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a limited “supplemental” investigation.
But Manger and McCarthy noted that prosecution was unlikely in Maryland because authorities would have to apply the law that existed at the time of the offense, not the law that exists now, Baltimore’s FOX 45 News reported.
“For example, in 1982, assault and attempted rape were both misdemeanors and subject to a one-year statute of limitations,” they wrote.
“To date, there have been no criminal reports filed with the Montgomery County Department of Police that would lead to the initiation of any criminal investigation related to Judge Kavanaugh,” they wrote.
Democrat Party leaders asserted that they could act as victims in this case, and could prompt the launch into an investigation, but if there is a crime, there needs to be a victim. In the case of murder, it’s different. But no murder was alleged, no matter how much the Democrats want one. Christine Blasey Ford would need to go to the County Police and make a crime report. It would read something like this:
h/t LSP
At an unknown location in Montgomery County (MD) in the summer of 1982 or 1983, Victim Blasey attended a pool party with other minor high school students where alcoholic beverages were consumed. 
During the course of the party, a sexual battery (unwanted touching) occurred. 
A review of documents of the victim’s statements indicate that she related several different versions of the same events over the past four years (35 or 36 years after the fact).
Her present recollection after undergoing psychiatric counseling is that Suspect Kavanaugh and Judge were responsible for pushing her onto a bed and holding her down against her will for a period of four or five minutes. Based on victim statements, there was no flesh-to-flesh contact.
The Montgomery County District Attorney would reject the case based on insufficient evidence and the statute of limitations, which ran 34 or 35 years previous to the report.
But the Democrats don’t care about that, because this is not about the good name of Judge Kavanaugh, or Dr. Blasey Ford, who was a pathetic drunk. They are playing for time, hoping that a big Democrat win in November will mean a vacant seat on the Supreme Court until they get into power in 2024.

  1. Hopefully this will work out as well for them as the Clarence Thomas character assassination. If there was anything to the allegations I would agree that he was unfit for the office, but there's been nothing but exemplary behavior from the man. I'm disgusted by the whole business.

  2. Democrats must have lost everything. I guess it started with the loss of trustworthy politicians, then the loss of a sound politic, then the voters, then the principles of what a true democracy is and finally the moral and dignety.

  3. Not a shred of evidence — that seems to be something of a pattern.

    For what it's worth, and if it happened at all, my money's on Ford's bf at the time, Garrett. See Ed Whelan on twitter…

  4. They've come forward and said that "It was us."

    It takes some integrity to do/say that and to stop an innocent man from being smeared… but the Dems were sly and got the smear on the record.

  5. The whole matter and the way that it was handled, reflects great shame on the nations and its highest institutions.

  6. Thank you very much for the clear presentation of the statute of limitations related to Blakey-Ford's accusations.

  7. If there were any truth to the allegations, if he admitted to them even, He is not that teenager.
    I did horrible things as a young man.
    I am not that man.

  8. In my youth I did harm to others for the greater good, with a "letter of marque" that made it legal. Call it a Presidential Finding or whatever you want to. I'm not that young man – well, not completely.

    Judge Kavanaugh has been revered throughout his life for his devotion to God, his service to the nation and his kind and respectful treatment of others. The Dems are concerned that he will damage their right to kill their babies in utero. Judge Kavanaugh was not disposed to change the status quo — then. Now? He might stick his finger in their eye.

  9. It's a one year statute. It would be a one year statue in any state of the union. Assault and Battery (Battery is an unlawful touching, assault is an attempt battery) is all that she alleged. There are statutes for "sexual battery" in some states, but the charge is the same. They are misdemeanors. One year statute. Report it within a year, or you have no chargeable crime.

    Even then somebody saying, "She touched me, or he touched me" needs to be corroborated with some kind of proof.

  10. I have been calling BS on the no statute of limitations line
    for more than a week. I found the law on the Internet and every
    time they extended the statute of limitations it could only
    be applied to someone still within the existing statute. The
    language used in the new law excluded those whe were "time-barred."

    Judge Kavanaugh could stand in any courthouse in Maryland
    thumbing his nose at the judge while singing I did it and
    there would not be damn thing the presiding judge could
    do about it!

  11. I had no idea that others were involved, and that they came forward to admit it.

    And of course the media has kept this well cloaked.

    I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked.

  12. I suspect that there will be a reckoning at some moment in time. It's sort of like Harry Reid changing the rules.

  13. The accuser had a drinking problem and a drinking to black-out problem in high school. There's photographic evidence. She may have been a pass-around girl? She may have been faithful to one boyfriend? None of that matters. Kavanaugh didn't do anything to her. It's all a ploy from the progs.

  14. I thought I'd lost the capacity to be shocked by their wickedness. But no, I'm obvs naive. I say again, Satan has entered into the Party.
