Judge Mary Waterstone Scandal To Cost City Hundreds Of Millions.Detroit, Michigan, USA (October 3, 2013) -- Detroit faces payouts in the hundreds of millions due to the decision of Federal Judge Arthur J. Tarnow to order the immediate release of Alexander Aceval from prison on a drug conviction according to CBS news (http://www.freep.com/article/20131001/NEWS02/310010145/Aceval-perjury-Wayne-County). (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303464504579105393340188668.html). Mr. Aceval is one of dozens of defendants suspected of being framed by Judge Mary Waterstone, Wayne County Prosecutors, and police. All are expected to file multi-million dollar lawsuits against Detroit and county prosecutors. The settlements of lawsuits from the misconduct cases from this scandal are expected to take up the entire $320 million directed to the Motor City from the White House (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303464504579105393340188668.html). The case is one of many currently at the center of allegations of serial misconduct by prosecutors, judges, and police in the Motor City. Other cases expected to cost the city hundreds of millions of dollars are the Davontae Sanford (http://irishgreeneyes-welcometomyworld.blogspot.com/2013/09/convicted-hitman-could-help-clear.html?spref=tw#.Uk0K5ZzD-P8) and the Highers brothers (http://abcnews.go.com/US/detroit-brothers-exonerated-1987-drug-murder/story?id=20384516).
At the center of the controversy is a series of letters between Detroiter Jerome Almon and the Department of Justice warning that Judge Mary Waterstone, the Wayne County Prosecutor's office, and police were framing defendants as standard operational procedure years before the Aceval case came to light. Letters from the US Attorney in Detroit and another state are stunning in their accuracy of events to come regarding the corrupt officials. Letters from the office of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder indicate that he personally knew of the misconduct. Mr. Almon's case now stretches all the way to the Prime Minister's office in Canada and to Germany.
Detroit has paid out nearly half a billion dollars to settle cases for such misconduct, a major factor in the city being forced to file bankruptcy according to documents and media reports (http://teamowens313.wordpress.com/2007/09/24/lawsuits-crippling-detroit/). The city and county are huge legal cost from several other scandals including the current federal corruption probe at the Wayne County Airport (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0QLg6KjHbM) that has resulted in huge financial losses and prison sentences with much more of each expected (http://www.wxyz.com/generic/news/local_news/investigations/wayne-county-confidential). Total costs to the city and county could well exceed $1 billion dollars. "Any money given to Detroit by President Obama will be soon stolen or wasted by corrupt officials and lawsuits," says Almon. The current two mayoral candidates are both long time veterans of the Wayne County political machine according to the USA Today newspaper (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/09/03/detroit-mayor-primary/2759883/).
