I Allege That:
On August 31, 2001, one Scott Teter did plan, conspire and act to assassinate two persons, Tom Crosslin and Rolland Rohm, for their political beliefs, in violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the First Amendment to the Michigan Constitution, the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the Fifth Amendment to the Michigan Constitution and the state statutes defining murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Subsequent to this, Mr. Teter did act to obstruct justice in violation of several state laws, specifically, access to public documents, and Michigan’s Oipen Meetings Act concerning public meetings.
Specifically, Mr. Teter:
1) Used his office of District Attorney of Cass County, Michigan, to convene a television press conference on August 31, 2001, to declare, pror to a trial scheduled on that date, that Mr. Tom Crosslin and Mr. Rolland Rohm were guilty and would be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison, in violation of the due process clauses of the the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the Fifth Amendment to the Michigan Constitution.
2) Was motivated by his disagreement with the strong and vocal political stand taken by Mr. Tom Crosslin and Mr. Rolland Rohm in favor of legal initiatives to allow the use of cannabis by adults, in certain circumstances, and other provisions of the legal petition in the State of Michigan known as the Personal Responsibility Amendment.
3) Issued Press Releases about the subsequent killings of Tom Crosslin and Rolland Rohm that were inconsistent with one another, and with known facts stemming from physical evidence, tending to obstruct justice;
4) Further obstructed justice by witholding public documents germaine to the physical evidence, specifically the autopsy report on Rollande Rohm by the Cass County Medical Examiner;
5) Further obstructed justice and conspired to obstruct justice by obstructing access to the public meeting in the Cass County Courthouse Jan. 7, 2002, by those knowledgeable about the case with representatives of the Press.
These facts being true to the best of my knowledge and belief, I hereby demand that the Michigan Attorney General begin proceeedings to prosecute Mr. Scott Teter for the above alleged crimes.
