I'm sorry to take up people's time with this silly Anonymous guy but I wanted to show people an example of how people turn to blathering name calling and harassment when they do not have a worthy argument to support their opinions. Anonymous is one of them. He continues to post derogatory comments about my children, my family and me because he is mad that I write about Dr. Connor's illegal actions. Is Anonymous Dr. Connor? I don't know but it is definitely someone who is very protective of Dr Edward J Connor because he has taken the time to write over fifteen hundred words (1,500) worth of comments in the last week alone. Anonymous seems to be very upset with me. Although Anonymous' comments do not bother me too much, I feel he is too much of a coward to present any physical danger, I have family and friends who are concerned about Anonymous' potential to cause physical harm because Anonymous clearly isn't the most sane person in the bunch.

Apparently I touched a nerve with last night’s blog post, “Disgruntled Dan.” Yesterday, Monday June 21, 2010, I published a post about someone writing vague but positive reviews of Dr. Edward J. Connor on business review websites. These “positive” reviews of Dr. Ed Connor also attack me for criticizing Dr. Connor. I woke up this morning to find five (5) new comments on my blog from someone named “Anonymous.” The content of the comments range from “concerns” that people are going to get me when I least expect it to speculation of the size of my male genitalia. Did the court appointed psychologist, Dr. Edward J Connor, write this? I don’t know, but someone appears to be very angry about my writings pertaining to Dr. Edward Connor and Dr. Sara Jones-Connor of Connor and Associates in Erlanger, Kentucky. If Dr. Connor did write this, it only further demonstrates what a dangerous individual Dr. Connor really is. See what Anonymous had to say:
Dan, you must have a REALLY small one. Have you looked into having surgery to enlarge it? It might help with your low self esteem issues.
Be very careful. They are plotting against you. You've made them mad. They know you are right.
Watch out, Dan. Watch out. They are after you.
Oh, gosh, Dan.
You have to be the smartest person there is.
Wow! Key words.
You are so smart!
All I can say is WOW!
You are a true victim, Dan.
I'll bet they watch you like a hawk.
I'd be scared to do what you are doing. They're probably trying to shut you up, aren't they? Probably some way that you'll never see coming - behind closed doors and in ways you'll never know. When you least expect it - BAM! I admire you, Dan. You are one brave man.
You'll show them, won't you, Dan? You are my hero.
Dan the Brave Man
I may be dating your ex.

I just found this on Merchantcircle review site. I see this from time to time when, someone whom I believe to be, Dr. Edward J Connor writes a positive review for himself and then attacks me. The following is the positive review of Dr. Edward J Connor of Erlanger, Kentucky titled "Disgruntled Dan":
"I have been refered for an evaluation by Dr. Connor. So far I have found he and his office staff to be quite professional and helpful, I have researched Dr. Connor, and it appears that all negative comments originate from a man named Dan Brewington...comments from other mental health professional that i consulted were excellant. It is a shame that this Dan person is trying to ruin this man's reputation.
May 21, 2010 by Elizabeth in Erlanger, KY"
This is what Dr. Connor does. He or someone he knows writes a fake review and then begins to blast me. Notice how "Elizabeth" says she has been referred to Dr. Connor for an evaluation. She says, "So far I have found he and his office staff to be quite professional and helpful." Elizabeth claims that "so far" Dr. Connor and his staff have been helpful yet the evaluation hasn't been completed. How can Dr. Connor be helpful? Did they give directions to Dr. Connor's office on 34 Erlanger Road in Erlanger, Kentucky? Did the office staff tell Elizabeth that Dr. Connor's email address was EdwardConnor@connorpsych.com? If Dr. Ed Connor was really in the middle of an evaluation, he couldn't make treatment recommendations or release a report. I have read a number of reviews that attacked me and they all mention the staff was very professional and helpful. The positive reviews of Dr. Connor's office staff began appearing after Dr. Ed Connor's office manager pled guilty to making over $125,000 in unauthorized credit card purchases. I never had anything bad to say about the office staff other than writing about Connor and Associates office manager being the subject of an FBI investigation for embezzling $125 grand. Someone is using negative reviews of me to detract from Dr. Edward Connor's illegal and unethical activities.
This just shows how bad of a psychologist Dr. Edward J Connor really is. Dr. Connor is trying to salvage what might be left of his tattered reputation by attacking me. Dr. Connor believes that discrediting me will somehow rebuild his broken image in the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area. All people have to do is check out Dr. Connor's writings and testimony on www.danhelpskids.com to see that he is a pathological liar who truly presents a danger to children. From the accounts of a few women I have spoken with, Dr. Connor is also a pervert as he asks women sexually explicit questions that he doesn't ask men. This may be why he doesn't want to release his files. He can't afford to let people see how perverted he is. I always wonder if his wife, Dr. Sara Jones-Connor is aware of his perversions, especially as she works on the same cases as him. Dr. Connor, if the things I say about you aren't true, then sue me; otherwise, don't resort to these childish antics on the internet.
P.S. Judge Humphrey and Dearborn County bailed on you so you can't run to them for protection like a little coward. The Hamilton County Courts and court psychologists know you are a fraud too. I know that Detective Mike Kreinhop spoke with you and he thinks your full of it as well. Pretty soon I will be digging up all the dirt about your private conversations with judges and lawyers. The public knows that you lie. The public knows that you abuse children. I will continue to find cases where you make your ridiculous comments and recommendations and I will make those public. Whenever you are in Indiana for a court case, be sure to look over your shoulder because I will have a civil process server looking to serve you a subpoena. That way you won't be able to hide in the comforts of Kentucky. You might as well just quit because I'm not stopping until you are unable to abuse children and families.

Happy Father’s Day, Judge James D. Humphrey. Enjoy Father’s Day spending time with your children and grandchildren even though you took away my daughters’ ability to spend Father’s Day with their dad. I can’t spend any time with my own father because he died several years ago of cancer. Since I don’t have kids or a dad to share Father’s Day with, I want to give you a Father’s Day gift of keywords.
Given your apparent inability to understand the internet, let me explain what “keywords” are. Keywords can be identified as words which appear with statistically unusual frequency in a text or a corpus of texts. I use keywords to direct attention to your actions in Dearborn County, Indiana. For example: if you do a Google search using the following words, “Dearborn”, “County”, “child”, and “abuse”, Google will give you approximately 18,700 search results. The 3rd and 10th results out of 18,700 total web results refer people to websites pertaining to you. The 3rd result is a link to the article about me, “The War against Fathers” by nationally syndicated columnist, Mike Adams. The 10th result refers you to www.danbrewington.blogspot.com. The reason the two websites appear so high on the search results is due to the frequency of the keywords on the web pages. Both sites talk about how your actions in the Dearborn County Circuit Court constitute child abuse. Though Dearborn County child abuse is not a rare search, it is not a common one either. A more common Google search would be “Dr. Connor” because there are numerous Dr. Connors in the world. There are doctors, psychologists, PhDs, etc… Out of 10,800,000 possible results for “Dr. Connor”, the 6th result refers to one of your favorite court appointed experts, Dr. Edward J Connor, PsyD of Connor and Associates, PLLC. It’s the website www.danhelpskids.com. I explain in great detail how you continue to allow Dr. Ed Connor to abuse children. The following is a list of various keywords, where web pages pertaining to you appear in the top 10 Google search results: Mike Kreinhop, Prosecutor Negangard, Judge Humphrey, Connor and Associates, Judge Taul, Dearborn County Police Harassment, crooked custody evaluator, Indiana Supreme Court Ethics and Professionalism Advisor Heidi Humphrey, Ms. Loechel, Hamilton County Judge Duane Mallory, etc... Getting the hang of it? My Father’s Day present to you is to help give you a working knowledge of how keywords work. The keywords appearing in the following example paragraphs are underlined:
Many people ask “How do I represent myself in a divorce?” I tell potential pro se parents that they have to be wary of judicial vindictiveness. Representing yourself in a divorce is a difficult thing to do. Many people ask questions like, “How do I file a motion for a continuance?”, “How do I cross examine a custody evaluator?”, “What do I do if the Judge has ex parte communications with the bad custody evaluator?”, “Do I have civil rights in a divorce?”, and “How do I file a complaint against a bad judge or bad lawyer / attorney?”
These are very difficult questions when parents represent themselves in a divorce. I tell people that Judge James Humphrey of the Dearborn County Circuit Court, in Dearborn County, Indiana, discriminated against me because I was a pro se dad. Judge Humphrey violated my rights to due process as a parent in a custody hearing. The Indiana government website has information on templates for filing a pro se motion for a continuance. Pro se parents have to be careful if they cross examine a child custody evaluator. Bad family court judges, like Judge James Humphrey, frown on pro se moms and dads if they attack the ethics or credibility of a court appointed child custody evaluator. If you have a bad or crooked custody evaluator you may want to get some help. Judge Humphrey terminated my parental rights because he was upset that I made the court appointed psychologist, Dr. Connor, look bad during cross examination. Be careful not to count on the family court judge to protect your rights because civil rights go out the window in contested custody hearings. Judges will take away your first amendment right to free speech by claiming that it is not in the best interest of the children for you to talk about the matter. If you want to file a complaint against a bad judge or lawyer / attorney, check with your state’s laws. Many lawyers will tell you to contact the state bar association. My former lawyer, Thomas Blondell, claimed he did not know where someone could file a complaint against a lawyer. He suggested that I contact the Indiana Bar Association. I have a hard time believing that Mr. Blondell, of Zerbe, Garner, Miller, and Blondell and a former Dearborn County Superior Court judge candidate, did not know that the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission oversees the complaint process of lawyers in Indiana. Former Dearborn County judge and county attorney, G. Michael Witte was just assumed the role of Executive Secretary for the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission. I just filed a complaint with the Commission against Dearborn County Prosecutor, attorney F. Aaron Negangard. I copied the complaint to the FBI to see if Prosecutor Negangard’s actions constitute a color of law violation.
When people post things on the internet, web programs called spiders or bots comb the internet and look for a statistically unusual frequency of words in a text. On June 16, 2010 I posted on the internet the complaint against Dearborn County Prosecutor Negangard that I copied to the FBI. If you do a Google search on “Dearborn County FBI”, you’ll see that my complaint is the 6th search result out of 13,300 total results. When I post this letter, the spiders and bots will find the keywords increasing the visibility of my writings about the Dearborn County family court system.
There’s nothing like a Father’s Day gift of information. I know the information in this letter may be a little dry but now you have a better understanding that the more keywords I use only serves to increase the visibility of the problems with the Dearborn County courts. This is my gift to you on this Father’s Day. I’m giving you the gift of knowing that your children and/or grandchildren will be able to see how their father/grandfather punishes defenseless children for his own personal gain. Next time one of your kids, grandkids, and/or one of their friends does a search on a combination of the above keywords; there is a good chance that they will be directed to a website that will give them a better understanding of how you abuse children in your courtroom. Every child and grandchild should have the opportunity to understand who their father/grandpa really is. No thanks needed; it’s the least I can do. As long as you are a judge, I will continue to help people understand how big of a cancer you are to the family court system. Happy Father’s Day, Judge James D Humphrey. Mine just got a little better. If people want more information about how evil of a person Judge James Humphrey is, go to www.danhelpskids.com.

Yesterday I received Judge Humphrey's Order of Recusal. The order stated:
"Comes now James D. Humphrey, Special Judge of the Ripley Circuit Court, and does hereby recuse himself from the above captioned cause of action to avoid any appearance of impropriety and this Cause is hereby referred to the Ripley Circuit Court for reassignment." - Judge James D. Humphrey, June 9, 2010
Judge Humphrey wrote in the final decree in my divorce, "The Court is most concerned about Husband's irrational behavior and attacks on Dr. Edward J Connor." Judge Humphrey also wrote that I tried to intimidate the Court staff and opposing counsel. There was no testimony from opposing counsel or the court staff. There were no contempt citations. No police reports. No slander or libel suits. Judge Humphrey stated with the utmost clarity that his main concern was his expert, Dr. Connor, and not my children. And this is what he did:
1) Terminated all of my parenting time with my 3 and 5 year old daughters. Prior to Judge Humphrey's orders, my daughters had never been away from either parent for more than 4 days.
2) Awarded $122,000 of my parents' farm to my ex-wife.
3) Included property that parents stored on their farm in the marital asset division.
4) Ordered that I pay $40,000 out of $50,000 of my ex-wife's attorney's fees.
5) Ordered that I undergo a mental health evaluation before I can have SUPERVISED visitation that is to be monitored by another mental health professional.
6) Ordered that I cannot have UNSUPERVISED parenting time until I take down my internet content.
7) Claimed he didn't have the jurisdiction to enforce the order while the case was in appeal. When I got a lawyer, Judge Humphrey remembered that he did have jurisdiction.
8) After having to wait nearly 3 months for a hearing just to approve the first mental health evaluation, less than a week before the hearing Judge Humphrey recused himself to "avoid any appearance of impropriety."
Dr. Connor claimed I suffered from severe ADHD, to the point where he claimed that, as a professional, he had difficulties understanding me. Judge Humphrey punished my children because I challenged Judge Humphrey's unethical evaluator. Judge Humphrey told my lawyer that he was recusing himself because there was an ongoing investigation of me that pertained to him. He must have been referring to the 9 month, federally funded Special Crimes Unit investigation/shakedown. Judge Humphrey is a vindictive spineless coward. He didn't even have the decency to mention Aaron Negangard's fictitious secret investigation of me. A lawyer once told me, "Do you know why judges wear black robes? So no one can see them sh*t themselves." Judge Humphrey punished me for challenging his expert by taking away my children and then stated that I could not have them back until I took down my internet content. If it was harmful to the children, he would have forced me to take it down immediately. It wasn't harmful to my children; it was harmful to him. When he figured out that using my children as a means of extortion wasn't working for him, he bailed. Now he is at home trying to wash the smell out of his robe.
If you see Judge Humphrey, ask him about Dan Brewington. If you are a friend of Judge Humphrey and think there is no way that he would do something like this, ask yourself a few questions. Why hasn't anyone arrested Dan Brewington? Why didn't Humphrey order Dan Brewington to take his web content down if it was harmful to the children? Why didn't Judge Humphrey hold Dan Brewington in contempt of court? Why is Negangard using federal funds to conduct a 9 month investigation of Dan Brewington's writings? For the more hardcore Humphrey supporters, if you think that I threatened or harassed Judge Humphrey, why hasn't the FBI arrested me because it would be a federal matter? Next time you see James Humphrey at the legion, out on the links, or at church, just remember that you could be a custody hearing away from losing the ability to see your children, grandchildren, niece, nephew, etc... This isn't the cherished pillar of the community everyone looks up to; he's a vindictive evil villain who will stomp on the lives of children to etch out a personal vendetta to protect one of his cronies. Judge Humphrey tried to destroy my life. When he found out that he could not destroy my integrity and dignity, he ran like the scolded dog that he is. Hey James, if you think any of this is slanderous, sue me. If it's true, retire. I'm not going away. Dearborn County deserves better. If you believe Judge Humphrey's actions are deplorable, please contact the Dearborn Circuit Court @ 812-537-8865 and leave a message with the office staff calling for the resignation of Judge James D. Humphrey.

Re: Dearborn County, Indiana violations
To Whom it may concern:
The attached letter to the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission is a complaint against Dearborn County attorney/prosecutor, F. Aaron Negangard. I copied the complaint to several different entities because the actions of Prosecutor Negangard and other Dearborn County officials stretch beyond the scope of the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission. Not only do Mr. Negangard’s actions constitute behavior not becoming of an Indiana lawyer, Mr. Negangard, and/or other Dearborn County officials/lawyers, may have committed civil rights violations, color of law violations involving federal stimulus funding, criminal intimidation and harassment, and more. Due to the complexity of the situation, I am unsure of the proper channels to report such a broad range of unethical and/or illegal conduct of, potentially, a number of public officials. I am also concerned about potential acts of retaliation from Mr. Negangard and his affiliates as I have already been subjected to retaliatory acts after drawing public attention to the behavior of these individuals on the internet. I feel I have been placed in the crosshairs of a few Dearborn County officials, especially after I posted a video of two Dearborn County police officers harassing me in the Dearborn County Courthouse after I requested to review public records. (Please see the YouTube video titled “Dearborn County Police Harassment” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOMuv0JXH7A).
I have attached a few members of the local media to the complaint in the hopes that they will be able to help protect other private citizens from abuses by the Dearborn County, Indiana government. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am able to produce much more evidence (documents, audio and video recordings, etc…) of abuses in Dearborn County, Indiana outside of the Aaron Negangard complaint. Feel free to visit www.danhelpskids.com and www.danbrewington.blogspot.com for more information.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission
30 South Meridian Street, Suite 850
Indianapolis, IN 46204-3520
Phone (317) 232-1807
Re: Complaint against Indiana Attorney Aaron Negangard
Dear Members of the Commission:
The following complaint may be uncharacteristic of the usual complaints that are filed with the Commission; however the circumstances leading up to this complaint are less than ordinary. I ask for the Disciplinary Commission to conduct inquiries and/or conduct an investigation of the matter. Given the secretive nature of the ongoing investigation/harassment by Aaron Negangard and the federally funded Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit, and Prosecutor Negangard’s refusal to file charges against me, I did not have a venue or the means necessary to gather more information for this complaint.
On October 8, 2009, I was contacted by Detective Mike Kreinhop, of the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit (SCU), regarding an investigation of my “writings.” When I returned Detective Kreinhop’s call, he informed me that he wanted me to come in for questioning but he refused to tell me any specifics of the alleged complaint or who made the complaint against me. Detective Kreinhop would only tell me that an attorney brought the issue to the attention of Prosecutor Aaron Negangard, head of the federally funded Dearborn County SCU, and Prosecutor Negangard instructed Detective Kreinhop to conduct an investigation. I informed Detective Kreinhop that I would not participate in any interviews unless Prosecutor Negangard was willing to explain why I was being investigated by the SCU. The following day, Cincinnati lawyer Robert G. Kelly called Detective Kreinhop and left a message requesting Detective Kreinhop return his call regarding the alleged investigation of Dan Brewington. Detective Kreinhop failed to return Mr. Kelly’s call until two weeks later. Detective Kreinhop explained to Mr. Kelly that he was not going to discuss the issue with Mr. Kelly, nor would he meet with Mr. Kelly in Dearborn County unless I was present. Mr. Kelly informed Detective Kreinhop that I would not be talking to the Dearborn County SCU if the SCU refused to discuss the nature of the investigation. Even though my lawyer informed Detective Kreinhop that I would not be participating in the “secret” investigation, on November 2, 2009, Prosecutor Negangard instructed Detective Kreinhop to drive to my mother’s house in Norwood, Ohio, to speak with me when my lawyer was not present. Despite speaking with me for over three hours, Detective Kreinhop was adamant about the fact that he was not allowed to discuss why Aaron Negangard initiated the investigation or who filed the complaint. Following the unannounced meeting with Detective Kreinhop, I did not hear anything else about the investigation until June 9, 2010, when the Judge hearing my child custody case announced that he was recusing himself. Dearborn Circuit Court Judge James D. Humphrey claimed there was an ongoing investigation of me that pertained to him.
Though Detective Kreinhop, Prosecutor Negangard, and Judge Humphrey would not give an explanation of the “secret” investigation, I would assume the investigation is related to my internet writings where I publicized my experience and concerns while dealing with the family court system in Ripley and Dearborn Counties. Judge James D. Humphrey assumed the role as Special Judge in my case when Ripley Circuit Judge Carl H. Taul recused himself after engaging in numerous ex parte communications with child custody evaluator, Dr. Edward J. Connor. [Documentation of Dr. Connor’s conduct can be found at www.danhelpskids.com] It was around that time I began sharing my story on the internet. Despite there being no protective order, Dr. Connor refused to provide me with a copy of his evaluation case file per his contract claiming that he would not release the file because I was representing myself and Judge Humphrey refused to compel Dr. Connor to release the file per IC 31-17-2-12. While refusing to give me access to the evidence behind Dr. Connor’s report, Judge Humphrey allowed Dr. Connor to testify during the first day of the final hearing on May 27, 2009. Nearly two and a half months later, without warning, on August 18, 2009, Judge Humphrey terminated my parenting time with my three and five year old daughters. I continued to speak publicly about my situation especially as my two young daughters had never gone more than four days without seeing either parent before they were abruptly stripped of their father. On September 22, 2009, Judge Humphrey stated that he did not have the jurisdiction to enforce the divorce decree because the matter was with the appellate court. Approximately two weeks later, Detective Kreinhop informed me that I was under investigation.
Aaron Negangard would not allow Detective Kreinhop to tell me what attorney made the complaint with Prosecutor Negangard. Since neither my ex-wife nor I were residents of Dearborn County and the divorce case was out of Ripley County, the only people involved who lived in or worked in Dearborn County who would fall under the jurisdiction of the Dearborn County SCU were opposing counsel Angela G. Loechel and Judge James D. Humphrey. It would be unethical and/or illegal for Ms. Loechel or Judge Humphrey to file a secret criminal complaint against me without removing themselves from the case. It appears that Prosecutor Negangard either pursued the complaint for someone out of his jurisdiction or he pursued the complaint for Attorney Angela Loechel, who is still involved with the court case. Apparently, Prosecutor Negangard informed Judge Humphrey about the investigation within the past couple weeks as Judge Humphrey just recused himself last week.
Please see www.danhelpskids.com and www.danbrewington.blogspot.com for more information and documentation about my situation. If I wrote any threatening or slanderous material I would have likely been sued and/or arrested. If I would have threatened a judge, it would have warranted a federal investigation/trial. I feel Aaron Negangard’s actions in using the SCU to investigate me are retaliatory in nature for challenging the Dearborn County Court system and for challenging the ethics of Dr. Edward J. Connor, who is regularly appointed by Dearborn Courts in both civil and criminal trials. If you search “Dearborn County Police Harassment” on YouTube.com, you will see a video of two Dearborn County police officers trying to force me leave the Dearborn County Courthouse after I requested to review public records in the courthouse. The male officer said I was not allowed to be in the Dearborn County Courthouse if I did not have any business there. When the female officer came down the stairs from the direction of Judge Humphrey’s office, she said “We’re done” three different times and the officers left without making me leave. I do not know what the officers were “done” doing and I am unaware if the police officers were under the instruction of Judge Humphrey or the head of the SCU, Aaron Negangard.
It has been nearly a year since I have seen or spoken to my children. On a number of occasions I have publicly encouraged an indictment and/or arrest by the SCU because it would give me the opportunity to find out why I am being investigated and it would give me the opportunity to present a case to demonstrate that I have not broken any laws and my actions and writings are protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. It saddens me that Prosecutor Negangard is aware that my actions are well within the limits of the law, yet he continues to hinder my efforts to be a father to my children by interfering with my court case.
Since the filing of the final decree, I have resided at my family’s home in Norwood, Ohio for financial and safety reasons while I continue to publicly challenge my case and the government officials who have gotten involved because I have found that some Dearborn County Officials have a propensity for taking retaliatory measures. I have contacted the Ripley County Sheriff’s Department and the Norwood City Police Department and at no point in the SCU’s investigation have Aaron Negangard or anyone else from the SCU attempted to contact the law enforcement agencies where I resided. The Norwood City Police Department had no knowledge of Aaron Negangard sending Detective Mike Kreinhop to Norwood, Ohio to speak to me while knowing that my lawyer would not be present.
I want to apologize that I am not able to produce more information but Aaron Negangard would not release the nature of the investigation. My case is currently in the Indiana Court of Appeals; Case No. 69A05-0909-CV-0542. If you reference the records before the Appellate Court, please note that there was erroneous information submitted by the attorney for the appellee, Leanna Weissmann. Ms. Weissmann stated that there was an order prohibiting me from posting information about the proceedings on the internet. This information is in fact false. Ms. Weissmann made the claim and then encouraged the court to review a website that was created roughly six months after the final hearing in the divorce. Ms. Weissmann also argued that the trial court was correct in ruling that I have supervised visitation with my children. There is no such ruling. Judge Humphrey ordered no visitation. Due to the complexity of the entire situation and questionable nature of some of the individuals involved, I wanted to address Ms. Weissmann’s false statements to prevent any further confusion.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Daniel P. Brewington
 In a letter to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, Former Dearborn County Attorney, G. Michael Witte, described the Special Crimes Unit as a federally funded “multi-jurisdictional task force to address serious felony crimes in Dearborn County, Indiana.” A large part of the SCU’s federal funding comes from the Federal Recovery Act of 2009.
 Ripley Circuit Court Case #69C01-0701-DR-007
 Dr. Connor first contacted Judge Taul on February 21, 2008 to inform Judge Taul that Dr. Connor’s child custody evaluation contained what Dr. Connor described to be numerous “errors and oversights.” Despite Dr. Connor’s admission to “numerous errors and oversights” in his report and Judge Taul’s recusal, Judge Humphrey denied me access to Dr. Connor’s file and then terminated my ability to see my children.
 Please note that there were no allegations of abuse, sexual misconduct, neglect, drug or alcohol abuse, adultery, injury to the children, etc… There were no reports from or involvement by the police, social services, pediatricians, etc… Feel free to contact Ripley County Sheriff Thomas Grills for more information.
 Despite serving nearly two full six year terms in the Dearborn Circuit Court, Judge Humphrey claimed he was not aware that Indiana Appellate Rule 39 gives the trial court the authority to enforce a judgment while the case is in appeal. Appellate Rule 39A: Effect of Appeal. An appeal does not stay the effect or enforceability of a judgment or order of a trial court or Administrative Agency unless the trial court, Administrative Agency or Court on Appeal otherwise orders.
 See the Dearborn County Commissioner meeting notes at www.dearborncounty.blogspot.com/2010/06/15-june-2010-dearborn-county.html. After inquiring about the release of public records, a woman was blindsided by a seemingly disgruntled county commissioner, Jeff Hughes, when Mr. Hughes called the woman back to the podium and began to ask her questions about an unrelated issue regarding fencing around the woman’s pool. The woman stated the fence was approved when the pool was built and she had a certificate of occupancy from the building department. She also stated that her insurance company approved of the fence. Mr. Hughes’ inquisition was an attempt to intimidate the woman because she requested public records. This is the same kind of intimidation tactics that I have faced in dealing with Aaron Negangard and the SCU.

Letter to Dearborn County Judge James Humphrey, Dearborn County Sheriff Candidate Mike Kreinhop, and Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard
Dear James, Mike, and Aaron,
It appears that I am still under investigation by the federally funded Special Crimes Unit because Judge Humphrey decided to recuse himself from my custody case because he claimed that I was the subject of an investigation that involved him. I first became aware of the alleged investigation on October 8, 2009, when Special Crimes Unit Detective Mike Kreinhop told me he wanted me to come in for questioning about some of my writings even though Detective Kreinhop refused to tell me what the investigation was about. He claimed an attorney brought "the matter" to the attention of Prosecutor Aaron Negangard and Negangard instructed him to investigate me. Even though my lawyer told Kreinhop that I would not be coming in for questioning if Kreinhop was not going to tell me what the investigation was about, on November 2, 2009, Special Crimes Unit Detective Mike Kreinhop drove to my mother's house in Norwood, Ohio just to "confirm" that what lawyer said was correct. That was the last I heard about the alleged investigation until yesterday when Humphrey recused himself.
I want to know when Humphrey became aware of the alleged secret investigation of me. I would also like to know why the federally funded Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit was investigating me. If Humphrey was upset because I said he abused my little girls, then he needs to take civil action against me. If Humphrey is upset that people voiced their concerns in letters to his wife, Heidi Humphrey, the Humphrey family should have known that it might be a conflict for a wife to be an advisor on the Indiana Supreme Court Ethics and Professionalism Committee while her husband was a judge. If James is upset because I told people that he let his regular custody evaluator lie in court, too bad.
It appears that I have been investigated for my internet writings. Considering that my internet writings contain no threats of physical harm or abuse, there is no criminal action necessary. Why am I being investigated? I believe it is because some arrogant public officials ran into someone they couldn’t scare. They ran into trouble when they figured out that I could not be baited into stooping to their level. John Q. Public gets arrested when they do the things that Judge Humphrey does. My power has always been in the truth. That’s why Judge Humphrey recused himself five days before my hearing. He did not have any power because he did not tell the truth.
How long are you guys going to keep this up? Your actions are dragging Dearborn County through the mud. I have people in Australia contacting me to express their anger with the Dearborn County family court system. There are currently 890 members of the Facebook group “Help Dan Brewington see his girls. You would be surprised how many stories I have heard about Dr. Connor. I was even contacted by a retired private investigator that sat in Dr. Connor’s office for a full day trying to serve a subpoena. Dr. Connor hid and never came down. Is Dr. Connor really worth protecting? You guys can harass me until the end of time but you will never get me to do something illegal because I am a responsible father. As long as I conduct myself in an honest and respectable manner, I will always have power over you. Humphrey denied me access to the evidence behind his decision to terminate my parenting time. The federally funded Special Crimes Unit will not tell me why they are conducting nine month investigations of my web material. You guys thought you had all of the power. But when it was time to man up and see me in his courtroom, James ran like a dog with his tail between his legs. Even the most vicious dogs will cower when they sense that their prey has no fear. I have no fear of you.
I would hope James would go ahead and step down because this is going to be a long road for him. Before you guys start crying about me being “potentially dangerous” again, let me reassure you that I have never and will never resort to any illegal activities to seek revenge. That is what you do. I am going to continue to inform people about the cesspool also known as Judge James Humphrey’s domestic court. I am going to file the appropriate complaints with the appropriate agencies. Sooner or later I am going to have Dr. Connor in a court that will not protect him so I can find out how involved he is with James Humphrey. If further investigation discovers more wrong doing, I will be contacting the FBI regarding a color of law complaint. Last but not least, I plan to make a documentary about the atrocities that take place in the Dearborn County domestic court. I will be taking notes during Humphrey’s court hearings. I will be requesting public records. Last but not least, I will be wielding camera(s) so I can interview other parents and take more of a Mike Wallace approach to interviewing some of the fine officials in Dearborn County (and the honest ones too). Most of all, I will be able to record any attempts to intimidate me; just like the time Humphrey’s office sent the two police officers to harass me because I wanted to review public records. (Just Google “Dearborn County Police Harassment” to see the video.)
When James steps down, this all ends. I do not want to see him have the ability to abuse more children in his courtroom. If you feel like you are getting angry; don’t, it clouds your judgment. If you think you are going to be able to convince other law enforcement officials that I am a danger or a criminal; you may want to reconsider. Ripley County Sheriff Thomas Grills is horrified about the situation. The Norwood City Police Department is aware that Kreinhop snuck in to do his secret investigation of me. Hamilton County Judge Duane Mallory understands how Dr. Edward J. Connor lies about the release of his records. Every attorney in the world would look at my divorce decree and say “Man, this judge really hated you.” What are you going to do? Arrest me? Let’s find a jury of parents and grandparents and tell them what James did. Let them read all 80,000 words of my internet postings. They will be shocked that I remained cool and calm after reading how Judge James Humphrey punished two little girls because he sought revenge on their father because their dad picked on Judge Humphrey’s precious little Dr. Connor. See how far your trumped up charge will go with people who have experienced domestic court. Please don’t forget, James will be the first one that I call to testify. Judge Humphrey once told me that he was not going to let me turn his courtroom into a circus. He’ll be thinking that I brought Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey with me if he ever has to take the stand. I will never fear you. You make the call.
Thank you for your time and the wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars.

Former Dearborn County Judge Michael Witte is settling scores before he leads the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission
The following is a letter I sent to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel concerning some problems in Dearborn County concerning county elections. On a side note, former Dearborn Superior Court Judge Michael Witte has just been appointed to the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission. That would be like appointing the CEO of BP to head the EPA.

Attorney, Hatch Act Unit
U.S. Office of Special Counsel
1730 M Street, N.W. Suite 218
Washington, D.C. 20036
Re: Dearborn County, Indiana/Hatch Act
Dear Ms. Martorana:
As a casual observer, it has come to my attention that G. Michael Witte, County Attorney for the Dearborn County Board of Commissioners, overlooked another potential violation of the Hatch Act. Mr. Witte’s self reporting letter failed to notify the U.S. Office of Special Counsel that Dearborn County Sheriff candidate, Mike Kreinhop, may also be in violation of the Hatch Act.
The additional purported non-compliance scenario is outlined below. I ask for the Office of Special Counsel to conduct inquiries and/or issue advisory opinions.
I. 2009 Recovery Act JAG Subgrantee, Grant #09-JRA-005, $174,673.00
2009 Recovery Act Edward Byrne JAG, Award #2009-SB-B9-0261, $57,951.00
2009 Edward Byrne JAG , Application #2009-H1473-DJ, $14,372.00
Recipient: Dearborn County Government
Beneficiary: Dearborn-Ohio Counties Prosecutor’s Office Special Crimes Unit
Hatch Act Employee: Mike Kreinhop, (now) Former Detective for Dearborn-Ohio Counties Prosecutor’s Office Special Crimes Unit
Mr. Witte’s May 17, 2010 letter to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel laid out the following about Dearborn County Commissioner candidate, Shane McHenry:
“In January of 2006, the Dearborn-Ohio Counties Prosecutor’s Office in conjunction with the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department, the Lawrenceburg Police Department, and the Aurora Police Department formed a multi-jurisdictional task force to address serious felony crimes in Dearborn County, Indiana. Operating under the name of the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit (SCU), it is comprised of three detectives from the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department, one detective from the Lawrenceburg Police Department, one detective from the Aurora Police Department, and two investigators from the Dearborn-Ohio Counties Prosecutor’s Office.
Detective Shane McHenry is one of the three detectives of the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department assigned to this SCU. Although his pay is routed through the Sheriff’s Department, he is assigned to the SCU and is viewed by many as the lead detective for the unit.
Mr. McHenry was a candidate in the May 4, 2010 Republican primary election for the office of Dearborn County Commissioner. Mr. McHenry won the election over two other candidates, a Mr. Thompson and a Mr. Rowland. He is now the Republican candidate for County Commissioner in the fall election. During this election process, Mr. McHenry was a full-time employee of the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Office assigned to the SCU which was funded by at least $246,996.00 in federal grant money. Mr. McHenry continues to work for the SCU and act as the Republican candidate for County Commissioner for the November 2, 2010 general election. His campaign material referenced himself as a “Detective for … Special Crimes Unit”. He is a local officer or employee whose principal employment is in connection with an activity which is financed in whole or in part by loans or grants made by the United States or Federal agency.”
The website of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel states the following:
If my candidacy is found to be in violation of the Hatch Act, can I relinquish the duties that cause me to be covered by the Hatch Act, and thus negate my violation?
Answer: No. A person is in violation of the Hatch Act when, at the time he engaged in prohibited conduct, he was covered by the Hatch Act. It has been held that candidacy begins when preliminary steps are taken to establish a candidacy, not just when a formal announcement is made. For example, canvassing voters, polling for name recognition, or meeting with campaign managers are preliminary steps taken that would be viewed as candidacy for purposes of the Hatch Act (even if a formal candidacy is not declared). If such steps are taken by someone who is covered by the Hatch Act, a violation of the Act will have occurred. A change in duties at a later time will not negate the already existing violation.
Though it appears that Mike Kreinhop resigned from his position with the SCU prior to registering to run for Dearborn County Sheriff, Mr. Kreinhop began campaigning for his election bid long before his resignation from the SCU. On March 12, 2009, the Dearborn County Public Blog posted the program information from the February 27, 2009, “Lincoln Day Dinner” which was hosted by the Dearborn County Republican Party. Appearing under the section titled “Other ads attached” were a series of advertisements from businesses and politicians including an ad stating, “Mike Kreinhop, Investigator Special Crimes Unit- for Sheriff.” [See http://dearborncounty.blogspot.com/2009/03/lincoln-day-dinner-program-info.html]
I am not a lawyer nor am I versed in legislation pertaining to the Hatch Act but G. Michael Witte made the argument that members of the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit are subject to the Hatch Act. Although Mr. Kreinhop may not have been a member of the SCU when he officially registered as a candidate for Dearborn County Sheriff, Mr. Kreinhop used his position with the SCU in advertising for his election bid prior to his resignation. As of October 8, 2009, Mike Kreinhop still identified himself as a detective with the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit [Go to the following link for more information on the timeframe of Mike Kreinhop’s role with the SCU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es-rsxCI9gg].
It concerns me as to why County Attorney G. Michael Witte failed to include Mike Kreinhop in his letter to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel especially as it appears that Mr. Witte unilaterally decided to take this action before informing the members of the Dearborn County Board of Commissioners about the situation. I question how and when Mr. Witte discovered the alleged violations of the Hatch Act and what motivated Mr. Witte to express his concerns. The minutes from the May 17, 2010 Dearborn County Commissioners’ meeting [See http://dearborncounty.blogspot.com/2010/05/17-may-2010-dearborn-county.html] indicate that Mr. Witte felt that Brian Messmore was in violation of the Hatch Act but failed to report it until Mr. Witte felt that Mr. McHenry violated the act as well. It is worthy to note that Mr. McHenry endorsed Mr. Witte’s opponent during Mr. Witte’s failed attempt to retain his position as Dearborn Superior Court Judge in the 2008 election. Mr. Witte even made the argument that Shane McHenry “is viewed by many as the lead detective for the unit.” As a lawyer and someone who has served multiple terms as a judge in the Dearborn Superior Court, Mr. Witte is fully aware that his opinion about the public’s perception of Mr. McHenry’s “perceived” role with the SCU is irrelevant if Mr. McHenry never claimed to be the “lead detective for the unit.” Mr. Witte’s statements suggest that Mr. Witte was not just notifying the OSC about a potential Hatch violation, but Mr. Witte was attempting to build a case against Shane McHenry by including irrelevant information about Mr. Witte’s perception of what public perception may be. As “reasonable minds” may believe Mr. Witte’s actions may be self-serving and/or give the appearance of retaliation against Mr. McHenry, I am forwarding a copy of this letter to the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission.
Please note that a portion of the above information is based on the assumption that the information maintained by the administrator of the Dearborn County Public Forum is accurate. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
