Juan Martinez perjury

Martinez: “Overwhelming evidence of attorney-ethics violations”

in Latest News by

Check out the Michael Kiefer story below, published Feb 13th by AZ Central:

If these allegations can be proven by witness testimony – backed up by credible evidence – this would positively affect Jodi’s appeals, and may well go some way towards overturning Jodi’s wrongful conviction.

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

“Attorneys for Jodi Arias have asked the State Bar of Arizona to reinstate a bar complaint against prosecutor Juan Martinez, saying there is overwhelming evidence that he violated attorney-ethics rules during Arias’ 2015 trial.

The 37-page objection to the complaint’s dismissal was filed Friday.

The appeal contends that Martinez leaked confidential information about the case and its jurors to two women attending the trial as social-media commentators. As a result, the attorneys claim, the identity was leaked of the sole juror who voted against sending Arias to death row for murdering her sometime-boyfriend Travis Alexander.

The objection also alleges that Martinez, a deputy Maricopa County attorney, had inappropriate communications with another juror whom he had discharged from the case.

Karen Clark and Ralph Adams, who specialize in attorney ethics, filed their initial complaint against Martinez in early 2017. Legal counsel for the State Bar, which licenses and disciplines attorneys in Arizona, dismissed the complaint in January without sending it on to the Bar’s probable cause committee, which could recommend sanctions against Martinez or refer his case to a disciplinary hearing.

If sanctions or a disciplinary hearing occurred, either could impact Martinez’s long and lauded career and could affect Arias as well. Any findings against Martinez could affect the status of Arias’ appeal of her conviction and life sentence, which have not yet gone before the Arizona Court of Appeals for review.

The objection filed Friday was addressed directly to the probable-cause committee. The objection is public record and was obtained by The Arizona Republic.

It alleges that:

  • Martinez engaged or attempted to engage women with whom he had flirtatious or outright sexual relationships to get information about jurors or leak confidential case information over social media. One of his alleged lovers, a social-media blogger, bragged to at least two others that she helped Martinez dig up negative information about the sole juror who refused to vote for a death sentence. And curiously, that juror’s name was revealed minutes after a mistrial was declared.
  • While the second Arias trial was underway, Martinez carried on an inappropriate telephone and text-message relationship with a juror who had been dismissed from the case. The woman alleges that Martinez pressed her for information on what other jurors were thinking. Martinez claimed he quickly ended the correspondence, which the woman debates.

Clark and Adams’ allegations are supported by interviews with four key witnesses. Their appeal contains documentation, including forensically authenticated real-time text messages between one of Martinez’s alleged lovers and a friend with whom she carpooled.

Karen Clark has a track record as an ethics lawyer. In 2004, while acting as counsel for the State Bar, she secured a disbarment against Ken Peasley, a well-known Pima County prosecutor, for prosecutor misconduct. It was the first time in the country that a prosecutor had been disbarred, and Clark’s findings led to two murder convictions being overturned.

Working with Adams, who is also her husband, she succeeded last year in disbarring Kirk Nurmi, Arias’ lead attorney, largely on the fact that he had violated attorney-client privilege by writing a tell-all book about the case.

Martinez had begun writing a book — now published — about the Arias case during the 1½-year hiatus between Arias’ first and second trials. A Bar charge against him on that count was dismissed, but Clark also wants that decision to be reconsidered.

After the dismissal of their initial complaint against Martinez, Clark and Adams conducted their own interviews and included the transcripts of those in their appeal.

The document also includes hundreds of pages of other material, including records in Martinez’s personnel file from 1990 and 1991, when he was reprimanded first for inappropriate and unprofessional contact with secretaries in the office and then for making an inappropriate sexual remark to a female attorney.

Clark and Adams’ current allegations are supported by interviews with four witnesses: the blogger’s former business partner; the freelance television journalist who carpooled with the blogger; the blogger’s ex-husband; and the dismissed juror, who went so far as to text nude photos of herself to Martinez…”

State Bar puts Martinez on probation for professional misconduct

(The misconduct charges related to Jodi’s trial are listed starting on page 20)

Hot on the heels of the Harvard Law School report that ripped “overzealous” Maricopa County prosecutors a new one… the AZ State Bar yesterday ordered Juan “Kermit” Martinez to be placed on probation for a year.

The order states that Martinez violated three Supreme Court rules governing the conduct of attorneys:

** Engaging in unprofessional conduct.

** Using means that have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden any other person, or using methods of obtaining evidence that violate the legal rights of such a person by, among other things, improperly attacking the defendant.

** Engaging in professional misconduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice.

State Bar puts Martinez on probation for professional misconduct

The initial charges were filed last December by Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice, an association of criminal defense attorneys. The 28-page charge detailed Martinez’ actions in 11 murder cases — including the Jodi Arias case — going back a decade.

(The misconduct charges related to Jodi’s trial are listed starting on page 20)

The charges were vetted by the Bar, then passed to the Supreme Court’s Attorney Discipline Probable Cause Committee.

Martinez has 10 days to appeal the admonition. If he does, the matter will go to a formal hearing.

Neither Martinez nor the County Attorney’s Office have indicated whether he will appeal.

Still pending is another Bar charge lodged against Martinez for publishing a book about the Jodi  Arias case before it has gone to appeal.

Harvard Death-Penalty Study Rips Maricopa County Prosecutors A New One

in Latest News by

Check out the interesting post below from Phoenix New Times (8/23).

Here’s an excerpt:

Maricopa County’s death-penalty system is plagued by “overzealous” prosecutors and creates a high number of questionable death-penalty cases, according to a new Harvard Law School report – (opens 55-page PDF report in a new window.)

“Too Broken to Fix: Part I: An In-Depth Look at America’s Outlier Death Penalty Counties,” by the school’s Fair Punishment Project, identifies Maricopa as one of 16 “outliers” among the nation’s 3,143 counties or “county equivalents,” for having sentenced five or more defendants to death during the period 2010-2015.

Jeannette Gallagher, Juan Martinez, and Vincent Imbordino account for more than one-third of all of the capital cases (21 of 61) in which the Arizona Supreme Court has found problems on direct appeal since 2006. The higher court overturned or vacated the death penalty in four of the 21 cases and found instances of “improper behavior” in eight of the cases.

10-28 retrial - more non-sensical BS from kermit

The report notes that the state Supreme Court found that Martinez — who gained worldwide fame as the prosecutor in the Jodi Arias trial — committed misconduct in at least three capital cases. Additionally, the state’s high court cited 17 examples where Martinez had acted “inappropriately” in the murder prosecution of Shawn Patrick Lynch. (The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the death penalty in that case for reasons unrelated to alleged prosecutor problems.)

Smith has harsh words for the three prosecutors.

“They don’t have the temperament required to prosecute a jaywalking citation, and what they’re being entrusted with is the death penalty,” he tells New Times. “They shouldn’t be prosecuting misdemeanor cases, much less deciding whether or not somebody lives or dies.” >>>

Proof of Perjury by Horn, Flores & Martinez

in Latest News by

.
Check out the detailed information below, reproduced in part from Richard Speight’s website. CLICK HERE to read the report in full – (Caution: Graphic Images).

To petition Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to order an investigation into perjury committed during the Jodi Arias Trial, CLICK HERE.

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

PROOF OF PERJURY:

A very detailed study of Dr. Kevin Horn’s testimony in the Jodi Arias trial concerning the autopsy and the autopsy report of Travis Victor Alexander concludes, with a great degree of certainly, Dr. Kevin Horn committed perjury on the two occasions he testified under oath in the Jodi Arias trail. The report reveals probable false statements on several issues and points.

Dr. Kevin Horn’s apparent perjuries are as follows:

Dr. Horn claimed the statement in his autopsy report, “The dura mater and falx cerebri are intact,” was a typo. His autopsy report does not support this statement.

Dr. Horn misrepresented his autopsy report, a legal document he neither discredited nor disproved. This legal document is a sworn statement of truth. To testify otherwise is a conflict of truths, and two opposing truths cannot coexist.

Dr. Horn asserted the .25 caliber bullet “must have” passed through the right anterior lobe of Travis Alexander’s brain. His autopsy report does not support this statement, and Dr. Horn stepped outside his role as scientist by stating opinion as fact.

Dr. Horn dogmatically asserted a bullet passing through the front lobe of a human brain would automatically cause incapacitation. This is an outrageous statement no one in medical science can or should ever assert. It’s like asserting, all old men involved in traffic accidents die.

Dr. Horn speculated Alexander’s lung could have been incised or pierced when the superior vena cava had been injured. The autopsy report does not support this statement.

Dr. Horn’s failure to correct the prosecutor’s assertion a stab wound to the superior vena cava or to the lung could cause the ear to bleed. This is a medical impossibility, and Dr. Horn allowed the statement to go unchallenged during his expert testimony, giving credence to the prosecutor’s statement.

All Dr. Horn’s apparent false statements deprived the defendant a fair trail by unfairly and wrongfully undermining material evidence supporting the defendant’s claim of self-defense.

Furthermore:

Detective Esteban Flores spent four or five years claiming Dr. Kevin Horn had told him Alexander had been shot first. He made such statements in television interviews and even testified to the same during a pre-trial hearing under oath. At trial, Detective Flores changed his story to say Alexander had been shot last. The change in his story deprived the defendant a fair trail by unfairly and wrongfully undermining material evidence supporting the defendant’s claim of self-defense and constitutes perjury.

That Dr. Kevin Horn receives no apparent benefit for lying on his own volition, it automatically follows that, since the prosecutor would benefit solely and greatly through any perjuries by the medical examiner, prosecutor Juan Martinez would have ample motivation to suborn perjury in this capital case…
