The Secret Seven Coalition was present from the beginning of the Nov. 27 evidentiary hearing on two statements of charges filed against William M. “Chip” Watkins III until the end of the hearing, taking notes and photos.
SS members with a special interest in the event that were instrumental in the demise of Watkins that were present were, Mark Halburn, from Putnamlive.com and also Troy Sexton and Sir Lawrence Smith.
Steven Canterbury the Administrative Director of the Supreme Court in the courtroom after the hearing of Watkins asked Lawrence Smith if he knew Dan Bingman and believed his claims of similar misconduct conducted by prosecutor Gerry Hough and Judge Richard A Facemire. Smith claimed to not only believe Mr Bingman, but was convinced of the misconduct by being sent the evidence for review.
Judicial Counsel Rachael Fletcher Cipoletti along with Judge Watkins agreed to proposed sanctions, including the costs of the investigation and court proceeding. A proposed 90-day suspension without pay would be stayed while he addresses deficiencies and undergoes counseling and judicial training.
You can see by this video of the hearing the Cipoletti was backtracking and trying to protect a criminal judge, just like any other member of the bar in WV, which we all find pathetic, and Cipoletti is not so pretty in person and nothing like her photos …
Cipotletti the Chief Counsel of the ODC is considered to be just another CROOK at the Supreme Court in Charleston and was brought in to try to get the judge off on a light sentence, but what many people didn’t know is that the SS was working behind the scenes to try to FOIL that CROOKED PLOT by Cippoletti who may have her own hearing to go to, once the FBI is informed about all the facts of her suppressing evidence against Gerald B Hough Gilmer County Prosecutor, and a tape played for officials recently that showed misconduct by Richard A Facemire that is engaged in the same misconduct as Watkins.
According to an article in the West Virginia Record released just before midnight last night …
In July, JIC issued its first statement against Watkins stemming from a complaint filed by Steve Canterbury, the Court’s administrative director. In it, JIC said Watkins not only failed to timely issue a ruling on a division of property between John J. and Nancy Black but also upload domestic violence orders to the Court’s registry.
The second statement was filed a month later stemming from complaints filed by Rev. Arthur D. Hage, Sharon Stinson, Robert R. Harper, Sr., Tammy Jo Lambert and Mark Halburn. The statement alleged Watkins either verbally abused them when they appeared as litigants in his courtroom or had contact with him.
Both statements were later combined into one.
In exchange for Watkins admitting to all of the allegations against him, JIC recommended he receive a three-month unpaid suspension. However, it recommended the suspension be stayed provided he agree to be monitored by another judge during that period, and not commit a “substantial” violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct.
Also, JIC recommended Watkins undergo “intensive counseling” to include anger management, take “immediate, effective remedial measures in his office” and undergo six hours of judicial training specifically in the area of domestic violence.
In its order, the Board said Watkins’ “testimony made it appear to [us] that [he] was less than sincere.” It cited, among other things, when Halburn asked him to turn and face him when he was given an opportunity to address the Board, Watkins “turned his chair, leaned back, crossed his arms, and glared at [Halburn] in an angry and confrontational manner.”
This, the Board said, “stood in stark contrast to [his] demeanor during his own testimony.”
Also, the Board said not more than a month before the hearing, Watkins continued to blame others, specifically the Court, for his problems. Along with accusing it of “kowtowing to public opinion,” Watkins said the Court was making a mistake in allowing disciplinary action against “the best family law judge in West Virginia, without any question” to proceed, the order said.
In its order, the Board noted that under both the state Constitution and Rules of Judicial Disciplinary Procedure, the maximum penalty Watkins could receive was a consecutive one-year suspension and $5,000 fine for each Code violation. Since there was little precedent in West Virginia that a judicial officer was suspended for almost a quarter-century, the Board, citing similar case law from out of state, opted to recommend Watkins be placed on hiatus for the next four years.
Special Judicial Disciplinary Counsel Rachael L. Fletcher Cipoletti which the SS considers a CROOK just like the Crooks from Crooked County, announced to the Judicial Hearing Board that prior to the hearing Watkins admitted to all 30 violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct in both statements.
Cipolletti who as acting as a special counsel had intentions of getting the lightest sentence for the judge she could when we know damn well she saw the awful evidence against Judge Watkins, and watched the video shown on FOX NEWS posted below.
The West Virginia Judicial Hearing Board says a Putnam County family court judge should be suspended without pay until his term ends in December 2016.
The hearing board’s order is stiffer against Judge William Watkins III than recommended by state Office of Disciplinary Counsel during a hearing last week.
Judge Watkins is in trouble for his courtroom outbursts. He promised during last week’s hearing to get counseling in order for him to stay on the bench. He agreed to five recommended sanctions including counseling, being monitored and getting more training.
But the Judicial Hearing Board, which conducted last week’s hearing, says in its order that’s not enough but instead Watkins should be censured “on each of the 24 violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct.“
He should be “suspended without pay until his present term of office ends December 31, 2016.“
The order says Watkins should also pay the cost for the investigation and prosecution of his case, which is about $18,000.
Watkins and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel have 30 days to respond to the hearing board’s order.
The state Supreme Court will consider the responses before deciding the next step. The matter could end up before the High Court for oral argument.
Watkins testified last week that he has made mistakes.
“I’d like have the opportunity to correct those mistakes and to prove that I can be an even better judge for Putnam County,“ he said.
The complaints date as far back as 2008.
In one case, when a defendant spoke out of turn, Watkins screamed, “…Understand that I will resign this bench and I will personally see to it that you never see a free day in your life. You understand that? You’re going to jail. I swear to God.“
In a second case, an angry Judge Watkins asked a woman appearing before him in court, “…Why are you shooting off your fat mouth?“ and said, “Shut up! You stupid woman.“
In several other cases, Watkins was so angry the comments he made were so distorted the recorder could not determine exactly what he was saying.
“There is no peace in West Virginia, because there is no justice in West Virginia.”
“Justice” is supposed to be a concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural law, religion, but the Gilmer County Circuit Court is fucking clueless as to that denotation!
“Flat out Power Elite BITCHES like JUDGE FACEMIRE and the prosecuting attorney for Gilmer County Gerry Hough don’t even know the meaning of the word JUSTICE!”
Those raised by the Word JUSTICE were taught that the righteous consider the cause of the poor, but the wicked regard not to know it; or, “Does not understand knowledge” of the poor man’s cause and case; and there being no money to be had, he does not care to consider it, and look into it, and get knowledge of it, and do him justice; he will not take his cause in hand, or plead it.
“Those words describe exactly the state of justice in West Virginia and specifically Gilmer County!”
There is no justice for those without money or at least enough education to know their rights and stand willing to fight long and hard for them. It is a sad fact that those are skills not easily found around here and to our shame, not encouraged and seldom appreciated.
“There is West Virginia Law and then there is the law for the rest of the 49 states!”
This was a quote from a prosecutor from out of state that was made privy to the misconduct by JUDGE Richard A Facemire and Gerald B Hough, given to her by law enforcement representatives investigating the criminal actions of public officials from Gilmer County involving an illegal extradition, and Beverly Marks ignoring a court order and hiding a DEED to property needed in the longest running court case in Gilmer County history.
When Gilmer County officers of the court knowingly break the law to bring forth a wrongful prosecution it is easily explained by highly educated professionals as WEST VIRGINIA JUSTICE!!
In GILMER COUNTY, West Virginia they, “Make their own rules!”
FOX NEWS finally got coverage of WEST VIRGINA CORRUPTION and laughed their asses off at Judge Watkins and his version of WV Justice, listen below as Megan Kelly expresses that entire WV court system is insane and this Judge should be removed! WHO will be the next judge made fun of in front of millions of viewers at home across America JUDGE FACEMIRE ? YES, it very could be and the long rant that he denied making during the Travesty of Justice trial in which GERRY HOUGH paid witnesses to lie and was caught, but the JIC said the matter was time barred, (meaning the defendant waited too long to file a complaint)but Rachael Cipoletti – Chief Counsel of the ODC – lied, because a complaint was filed officially in December of 2007 in which the ODC did not recognize the evidence that now proves a malicious prosecution took place, but since then even more recent evidence not previously known before was discovered pertaining to the Travesty of Justice case, and should re-set the two year statute.
In this video below the judge accuses the Rev. Arthur D. Hage, of threatening his family, when all he did was talk to reporter Lawrence Smith. This judge lies as bad as Judge Facemire and says his house was vandalized, but his house was not vandalized, it is all a lie, and we believe that Watkins could be through now for his actions, and he had a whole nation laughing at him — And let’s hope we can get the same treatment for Facemire and Hough. Putnam LIVE.com first published these videos, thereby breaking the stories involving Watkins with both the youtube video, and the threatening phone call to Lawrence Smith of the West Virginia Record.
- In the PAST getting a judge removed from the bench like this was unheard of , but today the people witness the most widespread suppression of views this county has ever known.
- The suppression of TRUE FACTS in Gilmer County comes not only from fear of being jailed or physically harmed but even more so from fear of being dismissed or restricted from employment, banned from radio or television work, having thoughts and facts wiped clean from the internet thus changing history, being disqualified for teaching, or found unacceptable for the lecture platform and even public works.
Those sanctions mentioned in the above paragraph are effective and powerful. They often carry more sting than a fine or a jail sentence!
The Central WV SS has been fighting the suppression of the FREE PRESS and the corrupt courts for seven years now, and have targeted Gerald B Hough, and Richard A Facemire for national public embarrassment, just the same type of deal that happened to judge Watkins. Every single day the SS is making progress, and talking to news agencies and publishing reports and sending facts and documents and generally working their asses off to take these criminals disguised as judges, lawyers, and politicians off the street.
We watch as the persistent efforts of those given control attempt to restrict or suppress information for almost any reason (self assigned moral guardianship with no foundation in ethics, or for political purpose and personal gain) and stand in absolute opposition to the principles of freedom. This is censorship and it flourishes when no one safeguards intellectual freedom. It can be defined as any change in the access status of material, based on the content of the work and made by a governing authority or its collaborators. Worse than that, our criminal justice system is part and parcel to such acts and there is no justice for the oppressed.
Rape after Rape has occurred at Glenville State College, a small and dastardly liberal arts college tucked away far into the Northern part of the middle of the state of West Virginia, the place that is OPEN for BUSINESS and of course GSC lives up to their other slogan of Wild, but not so Wonderful.
“The picture of the judges house in the video below is what started the entire courtroom debacle!”
“The judge, William M. “Chip” Watkins III, was accusing Rev. Arthur D. Hage of talking to the media after a previous hearing. That conversation, he believed, led to an article about the judge and his wife that apparently included a picture of his house and information about his residence. So when Hage showed up for another hearing, Judge Watkins was irate. And he let loose, threatening to incarcerate Hage for life, which was the same type of action taken by Judge Richard A Facemire against the defendant in the Gilmer County Circuit Court during the Travesty of Justice case”
Judge WATKINS threatens LAWRENCE SMITH of the West Virginia Record
Here in Gilmer County the same kind of bullshit that Judge Watkins pulled goes on, and white collar crime runs rampant also …with local attorneys and the most famous attorneys for stealing from estates is the Butcher and Butcher law firm, and anybody that has researched the AJ Woofter estate knows the facts and how they were protected by corrupt law enforcement in Gilmer County.
“The Central WB Secret Seven Coalition is here to fight corruption in the name of the common citizen!”
