LATEST UPDATE:

Legal action  - Jason Weber

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

As you may have heard on the grapevine… not content with having set up their own PayPal link & trustee mailing address very recently… “The Weberz” (aka Jason Weber, Pascal Van Daele & Elizabeth Ann Schilling) have now set up an illegal Trust Fund (using Jodi’s name) in an attempt to enhance their deception to an even greater degree.

They’ve even roped in an equally clueless array of cohorts. and gave them all “Board Member” titles.

Who would even want to be a Board Member of an illegal Trust scam is beyond me. You can see all their names & pics by clicking here if you so wish.

Needless to say, none of their latest illegal Trust Fund activities were ever sanctioned, approved or even authorized by Jodi or any member of the Arias family at any time – despite the almost daily misleading messages to the contrary, posted in their fake support group page on FB.

In light of all this BS, and to put the issue to bed once and for all, click the play button below to listen to a recorded telephone conversation from yesterday – September 4th 2014 – between Jodi and Elizabeth (Lisa) Ann Schilling.

Legal Facts:

The Jodi Arias Defense Fund has not been recognized as exempt under Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3). Nor can it be.

Article II of the Articles of Incorporation for the “Jodi Arias Defense Fund” (signed by the incorporators, Jason Paul Weber and Elizabeth Schilling, and certified by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Corporations, Securities & Commercial Licensing Bureau on August 21, 2014) states:

“The purpose of the Jodi Arias Defense Fund is to accrue funds through donations in order to (a) accommodate any of Jodi’s wishes while she is in prison, such as the purchase of a television or other amenities, (b) provide for any expenses Jodi feels is necessary for her appeals, and to (c) raise necessary funds to hire Jodi a well-qualified appellate counsel to guide her through the appellate process, while (d) maintaining enough funds necessary for a new trial, should one be granted. Any residual fees will be allocated to Jodi Arias and/or any domestic violence charities in which she instructs the Board of Directors to donate to.”

Under IRS Provision 7.25.3.5.1.6, adopted into law on February 23, 1999:

CHARITABLE CLASS REQUIREMENT “A charitable organization or trust must be set up for the benefit of an indefinite class of individuals, NOT FOR SPECIFIC PERSONS. A trust or corporation organized and operated FOR THE BENEFIT OF SPECIFIC INDIVIDUALS IS NOT CHARITABLE. Thus, a trust to benefit John Jones is not a charitable trust even though the facts may show that John Jones is impoverished.

However, an organization set up with the general charitable purpose of benefiting needy individuals in a particular community is a charitable organization and it may select John Jones as a beneficiary.”

Important Fraud Warning: Jason Weber

in Latest News by

.
This is an important update on the ongoing fraudulent activities of convicted felon & fake Jodi supporter, Jason Weber – (see mugshot below):

jason weber trust fund fraud 4

Following on from my last post, Weber is continuing to use deceptive practices to steal money destined for Jodi’s Appellate Fund.

Here’s tweet from Jodi’s Twitter update account from yesterday (8/15):

jason weber trust fraud - t1

As you know, Weber received written notice from the Trustee (Sue Halterman) on August 6th (10 days ago now), where he was told, in no uncertain terms, to cease & desist from soliciting or collecting any further funds for the official trust account:

http://jodiariasisinnocent.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Sue-Halterman-email-8-6-2014.jpg

In response to that request, he has now set up a fraudulent PayPal account for his fake support website, which he is currently using to collect funds using the PayPal address: support@Justice4JodiArias.com – as per the screenshot below:

jason weber trust fund paypal fraud 3

Not content with steering PayPal donations into his own pocket, he’s now covered all the angles and even gone as far as setting up a fake “Trustee mailing address” (in Warrenton, VA), so he can now pocket any donations sent in via regular mail too. See screenshot below:

jason weber trust fund fraud address 6

It’s a clear cut case of misrepresentation, deception, theft & fraud on Weber’s part. At this rate, he’s gonna end up back in jail a second time… probably sharing a jail cell with his cohorts, Pascal Van Daele & Elizabeth Ann Schilling.

In Summary:

Any funds donated through the fake & fraudulent site operated by Jason Weber will go directly into his pocket. The only website authorized to collect donations for the JAA Appellate Fund is the official website at Justice4Jodi.com

So once again, be sure to let all your contacts & fellow Jodi supporters know about this important information, and warn them accordingly.

You might also want to visit his fake Facebook support page at: www.facebook.com/justice4jodiarias – and leave your own thoughts & comments.

UPDATE: IF YOU HAVE DONATED ANY MONEY VIA PAYPAL FROM AUGUST 6TH thru AUGUST 15TH – PLEASE SEND YOUR DONATION DETAILS TO: jaa.appellatefund@gmail.com — This will enable us to prosecute the individuals responsible.

The JAA Appellate Fund – Clarification

in Latest News by

.
Following on from my earlier posts & warnings regarding the JAA Appellate Fund:

This is to confirm that Jason Weber has now been issued with formal written notice – (from the JAA Fund trustee, Sue Halterman) – to stop soliciting for any further donations to the official JAA Appellate Fund… both through his website (at Justice 4 Jodi Arias .com) and his accompanying FB page.

Click the image below to see the email message (opens in a new window):

Sue Halterman email 8-6-2014(Personal & confidential information has been excluded)

Let it go on record that with immediate effect, and based on his wayward actions, unfounded accusations, drunken rants, threats & verbally abusive antics to date, Jason Weber no longer has the support of Jodi, the Trustee (Sue Halterman) or any other members of the Arias family. The same also applies to the Admins of the aforementioned website and FB page.

In summary: The only website authorized to collected donations is the official JAA Appellate Fund website at Justice4Jodi.com.  Be sure to pass this message on to all your contacts, and via the share buttons above & below this post.

Fundraising for Jodi – The Action Plan

in Latest News by

.
Following on from my post on May 16th – “It’s time to stand up & be counted. Here’s why…” – check out the following post, kindly written by an active & long-time Jodi supporter…

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

At SJ’s kind invitation, here are my ideas on how to kick-start fundraising.  I hope they will stimulate others to share their own thoughts.

First, some background.  We heard from Jodi back in January why the appeals fund is so critically important to her future.  As a member of her team (not Jodi herself) then wrote in a text posted here:  Without private money, Jodi will be assigned counsel and again be subject to the luck of the draw.  She could get stuck with another Nurmi.  If she can afford her own attorney, then she has a better shot at getting the conviction overturned.

If the jury comes back with death, the taxpayers will be obligated to pick up the tab all the way up to the US Supreme Court.  But, again, Jodi will be subject to whatever attorney is assigned to her from the Federal Public Defender’s office.  There are probably some very good lawyers in that office, but that doesn’t mean they’ll get assigned to Jodi’s case.  By the luck of the draw, she could end up with someone who, like Nurmi, is uninterested in doing more than the absolute minimum required to draw his paycheck.

Do we want to leave Jodi’s life and future to chance?  Or do we want her to be able to retain a kick-ass attorney who is not going to stop until her wrongful conviction is overturned and she has the freedom back that she deserves?

The figure cited as a typical retainer was $250,000.

Unfortunately, it seems the situation is worse than we knew.  Referring to the $15,000 raised so far –  just 6% of what is needed – Jodi now writes to me:

“In other words, at this rate I will not be appealing if I get life.  And if I get death, I’ll have a public defender, an overworked, underpaid public defender with an already unmanageable case load.”

These are two prospects that should terrify all her friends.  Either she gets executed, after years of solitary confinement watching an overworked public defender file ineffectual motions, or she’s never even able to appeal her wrongful conviction in the first place.

Either of these disasters is unthinkable.  But we can easily block both of them, if we will just start taking action.

Survivor Day - Justice for Jodi 4-6-2013

As I said back in January, $250,000 is a very feasible sum.  Even Jodi’s public supporters number many hundreds.  Just one FB group, Free Jodi, has 325 members; two others have 139 and 144 respectively.  Anyone with a FB account can reach these people to urge their support.  Posts here on JAII automatically alert several thousand people.  And this is only people who have somehow identified themselves already as on Jodi’s side.

Do the arithmetic!  Suppose there are 500 supporters willing and able to donate.  If each, on average, gives $500, Jodi can hire the private lawyer she needs.  And, face it, an average adult American can find $500 for something he or she really wants.  Sure, some people are very poor and struggling just to survive, the unemployed, single mothers, people with huge medical bills, and so on.  But there are two answers to that point.  First, people who are wealthier than average can easily take up the slack by donating $1000 instead.   Second, there is something everyone can do, poor or not: write to people who do have money!

Simple example: Barry Gibb, last surviving BeeGee, said a while back that he was writing a song about Jodi.  Right now, he’s on another solo tour, but he’s already rich enough to own four beachfront properties in Miami Beach.  Anyone, no matter how poor, can write to him and ask him to help save Jodi’s life. Anyone can also write to the Dixie Chicks, whose song Goodbye Earl was a powerful statement about domestic violence.   And many on this site will be able to think of countless other celebrities who were themselves DV victims.

I already have a personal fundraising plan:  I’m well-placed to write a convincing letter to American criminal-law professors, suggesting they contribute to Jodi’s fund to fight the corruption of criminal justice by tabloid TV.  I’ll do that over the summer.  Others should be working out similar plans, on their own or together.  It would be great for someone to compose a brief but effective letter, suitable for people who don’t know Jodi’s case, that everyone could use, and post it here.  It would also be great to see a general JAII fundraising Task Force, as in the past.   I can’t organize anything myself, since my own mass mailing will take up my time.  But there are many people on this site who would do a great job.  Any volunteers?

In any case, hats off to SJ for his timely wake-up call.   Let’s all open our wallets, get out our stamps, envelopes, and email, and coordinate with others to be effective.  There’s still time to solve the problem, since the crunch won’t come for five or six months.  But then it will come, as deadly sure as winter.   I can’t even bear to imagine how Jodi will feel if she finds out near the end of the year that she can’t have any appeals, because her supporters let her down on the one thing that she needed most.  She would never herself say the things SJ and I are saying.  She hates to ask for anything from people, especially money.  But SJ and I are saying it, loud and clear: the appellate fund is a train wreck so far, and it’s time for us to fix it!

Let’s get going!

It’s time to stand up & be counted. Here’s why…

in Latest News by

.
I chat with Jodi on the phone every week (as do a few other people too), and I can tell you now, as greatly appreciative as Jodi is for all the mail & support she continues to receive, she’s also very disappointed at the current low level of money in her appeals fund.

Right now, the fund has round $15,000 in it. It needs to have $150,000 in at the very least, and probably a whole lot more by the time the dust settles… so $15,000 right now (while better than zero) is just not cutting it.

To a degree, responsibility for that also lies with the person currently overseeing the official fund website… as their willingness to integrate themselves into the non-FB based support community has been somewhat non-existent to date. Hopefully that will change moving forwards.

The thing is… way too many people have gotten themselves involved in an almighty ego-fueled pissing match over the past few months. There’s no other way to describe it. Yes, they’re Jodi supporters (“in a fashion”) — even though most of them turned up several months after the initial trial had finished — and since then, they’ve blown way too much time & energy trying to out-do & out-manoeuvre other supporters, subsequently rendering themselves as useful as a politician in a crisis. I’m not naming any names here, but we know who they are.

You see, prior to doing anything, I always ask myself this question: “WILL IT HELP JODI?”. If it will, then it gets done. If it won’t, then it’s pointless wasting time on it.

If many more people adopted a similar approach, then we’d certainly make more cumulative progress in the direction of our common goal. Think about that for a second. We are all here for Jodi after all. Anyone else’s personal baggage, gripes, vendettas and/or their accompanying bullshit is irrelevant and should be treated as such.

Let me spell it out for you:

If you’ve already donated to the fund, that’s awesome. Please donate again.

If you haven’t already donated to the fund, why the hell not? What happened? I’m not even sure you could class yourself as a true Jodi Supporter if you haven’t donated. You’d be more like a bystander… watching everything happen but not doing anything pro-active to help the cause. And that’s not good.

Click here (or click the pic below) to visit the official JAA Appellate Fund website to make your donation today.

The JAA Appellate Fund

Finally, if my post today has offended anyone, then that’s great. That was the plan. It’s a wake up call if you must. It’s also a call to action. So if anyone has been offended today, then so be it. Maybe they should take a look in the mirror the next time they’re passing one. Maybe they should be thankful they actually have a mirror to look at. Maybe they should also be thankful that they’re not locked away 23 hours every day too.

Remember this video from back in January 2013? Here it is again:

[hdplay id=25 width=500 height=300]

Here’s the bottom line folks:

Jodi deserves to be free. Our combined & cumulative efforts can go a hell of a long way towards speeding up the process and achieving that objective as a direct result of the forthcoming appeals.

Above all else, and as I’ve been saying since I launched this site back in December 2012… WE ARE TEAM JODI… AND WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS in our quest for JUSTICE FOR JODI.

That statement will never change… but it’s now time to stand up & be counted.

Team Jodi (and Jodi herself) thanks you in advance for your support and your donations.

Have a great weekend!

Settlement Conference scheduled for 10am

in Latest News by

.
Jodi’s Settlement Conference is scheduled for 10 am today, and will be handled by retired Judge Jim Keppel. Hopefully the exclusion of Pickles from the equation will eliminate any of the customary Kermit bias.

The hearing will also be closed to the public and the media, as per the court docket filed 10/21:

“The parties have agreed the settlement conference scheduled for October 24, 2013 should be closed to the public and the media. The settlement conference was scheduled by agreement of the parties and is subject to the provisions of Rule 17.4, Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure, and Rule 410, Arizona Rules of Evidence.
.
The court finds an open proceeding for the settlement conference presents a clear and present threat to the due administration of justice, specifically, the right of the parties to a fair penalty phase trial by an impartial jury. See Rule 9.3, Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure.
.
The court finds there is a compelling interest that overcomes the right of public access. Specifically, there is a substantial probability that publication of information provided during this settlement conference could taint the jury pool and significantly impact the parties’ ability to effectively present matters at trial.
.
In addition, the presence of the public or media may inhibit the free flow of information, including statements by the victims and/or the defendant. This is especially important here since the only issue for the jury will be penalty.

.
The court also finds that, in light of the intense media coverage of this case, there is no less restrictive means to achieve these compelling interests. Good cause appearing,
.
IT IS ORDERED closing the settlement conference scheduled for October 24, 2013 to the public and the media.
.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED any agreement reached by the parties will be entered in open court with prior notice to the public and the media.
.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED sealing the transcript of the settlement conference pending further order of the court.”
