Sympathies are extended to Judge Kevin Selby, who has the unenviable task of being the latest magistrate assigned to handle the case of perennial candidate (and perennial loser) Martin Lindstedt.
The assignment was officially recorded in Newton County Circuit Court records today, along with Lindstedt's latest filings, the same kind of quasi-judicial diatribe he has been foisting upon the courts for years.
Lindstedt is being held in the Newton Count Jail awaiting trial for statutory sodomy.
He has filed a motion, according to circuit court records, to remind "regime court that prisoner remains unlawfully imprisoned, has not been lawfully arraigned, remains held in lieu of excessive bond (his bond is $100,000 and might have already been lowered, except he won't hire a lawyer), has not had access to his legal file, no access to legal resources to defend himself, that this entire case should be dismissed due to prosecutorial and judicial corruption as well as lack of evidence plus a demand that this regime court conduct inquiry under revised statutes of Missouri (RSMO) 221.130 into the misconduct of Sheriff Ken Copeland in setting unlawful and inhumane jail conditions and feloniously tampering with and withholding prisoner's political, religious, racial, legal and personal mail."
On June 13, Lindstedt filed a motion asking to be released on his own recognizance and "for dismissal of unlawful bogus case maliciously prosecuted."
The sad part of all this, in addition, of course, to the crime Lindstedt is accused of committing, is that taxpayer dollars are being spent to deal with each of his frivolous motions, both in this case and in every nonsensical civil suit he has brought in federal court over the years.
