OPPT: Patrick Cody Morgan Gets 27 Years – Is He Innocent?
Patrick Cody Morgan was convicted by a federal jury of nine counts of bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud on October 30th, 2012.
Yesterday he was sentenced to 27 years in prison by Federal Judge Lynn Nettleton Hughes.
Here is what I know about the case, a news clipping from a Houston paper.
HOUSTON — A federal jury has convicted Patrick Cody Morgan, 45, of Alvin, guilty of nine counts of bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson announced today. Just moment ago, the jury returned its verdicts after two days of trial and less than three hours of deliberation.
The government presented evidence at trial that from July 2004 and continuing through September 2007, Morgan, along with his co-conspirators, participated in a scheme to defraud financial institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and residential mortgage lenders.
Allen Atkinson from This Incredible New World sent me the following email from Morgan’s sister, Stacy Chapman, detailing some of Morgan’s courtroom maneuvers, and her thoughts on losing her brother to the Federal Judicial system as we know it.
Here is the email:
Lynn Nettleton Hughes (born 1941) is allegedly a United States District Judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Yesterday, in a travesty of justice, Cody was sentenced to 27 years in prison for a crime he DID NOT COMMIT!!!! The Pope, Queen and others got 25 years for GENOCIDE!!! What is wrong with this picture?? My family is devastated – they do not know about you, WONDERFUL people. They don’t have the hope that I do that this wrong will be righted.
Cody is on his way to a FEDERAL facility today, where, we have no idea. I hope and pray we hear from him soon. We will get the transcript in a day or so of yesterday’s proceedings. They kept cutting off his mike and we know the recording, so we don’t know if EVERYTHING that was said by either the judge or Cody is completely on the transcript. Cody was so eloquent and the judge was flustered because Cody called him on so many things.
Previously, in his trial, he would not even sit in the Defendant’s chair as he said, he was not consenting to being the defendant, as they had NO jurisdiction over a “living man”. He never really defended himself at trial. When the judge mentioned this, yesterday, Cody said, “I was NOT going to defend myself against fabricated fraud and lies. That was what the jury was presiding over. I let my paperwork stand as my defense. I filed my Affidavit of Facts and backed it up with a Bond. YOU have NEVER refuted ONE of my facts, you were defaulted out and you, still have never rebutted anything. I find that very curious.”
I KNOW the judge was VERY surprised that Cody was so eloquent and KNEW what he was talking about and countered the judge at every turn with correct information, but the judge “glossed” over EVERYTHING. Much of that info we know the other attorney’s had no idea what they were talking about. They know about procedure, not law and not about what you and I now know and about what Heather uncovered. These judges are “schooled” in it all and how to deal with people like Cody. They just railroad them and try to make them out to be those “crazy sovereigns”.
Some of it was actually funny and I wonder if the judge just made it up as he went along – he said, according to jurisdiction, that when he woke up every morning he “poked” himself and there was his jurisdiction – ??? He also said that he ran an Article III court – only one in America is in New York – Court of International Trade, which Cody filed his case. (We don’t know if they took it on because they said they had to see if THEY had jurisdiction). Cody said, on the record – that is a lie!
Cody made his points and when asked by the judge if he had anything else to say before his sentencing, Cody turned to the courtroom and told EVERYONE that he was NOT acquiescing to ANY of the proceedings and would NOT plead to something that he HAD NOT DONE!! He called the judge’s court a KANGAROO court several times. He accepted for value everything they threw at him, for the record, several times, including his sentence.
It was so horrible to feel so helpless to not be able to help this incredible man. I PROMISE I’m not saying that as his sister, but when you meet him you’ll know what I mean. YES!!!! He will be an incredible force to have to help with paperwork, etc… for your organization. He understands this probably as close as Heather does.
I don’t know what the next step is to get this overturned and those responsible BEHIND BARS for all of this, but I would PRAY that all of you help us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have already shared with your readers and their help with their letters.
And there you have it. One person allegedly wrongfully convicted of using the supposedly illegal monetary system to profit, and using it the way it was designed, however, he is not an insider to this manifestation, so he wasn’t allowed to do what he did, only Corporations and Governments can do this, evidently.
At least that is the implication, as it was explained to me.
We shall see, stay tuned.
