“Where do I even start?” This is the question I found myself pondering when I sat down to write this post. How about this;”Dearborn County Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard and Special Crimes Unit Detective Shane McHenry conspired to commit fraud upon the court during my bond reduction hearing.” I could go with, “Prosecutor Negangard wasted thousands of dollars of Dearborn County taxpayers’ money on bogus 7 day, 24 hour surveillance outside the home of Judge James D. Humphrey in an effort to illegally build a phony case against Dan Brewington.” Or I could just begin here, ”The Inmate Movement History from the Hamilton County (Ohio) Jail Management System proves that Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard and Detective/County Commissioner Shane McHenry were fully aware that Hamilton County Jail inmate Keith Jones lied about Dan Brewington inquiring about someone performing a “drive-by shooting” on Judge James D. Humphrey, when Negangard and McHenry tried to convince the public and the court that Dan Brewington presented a physical danger to Dearborn County residents.” How do I know Negangard and McHenry are defrauding the courts and taxpayers of Dearborn County, Indiana? Because the Inmate Movement History at the Hamilton County Justice Center proves that Keith Jones and Dan Brewington never crossed paths while at the Justice Center.
The extent of the corruption in the Dearborn County government will never surprise me because I have been the subject of ongoing efforts, by people like Judge Humphrey and Prosecutor Negangard, to illegally deprive me of my children, my free speech, and my personal freedom. What I find to be amazing is the reckless, arrogant stupidity in making up a lie that could be easily disproved. During my bond reduction hearing on August 17, 2011, Dearborn County Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard called Detective Shane McHenry to testify about McHenry’s “investigation” of a report that I approached Keith Jones in the Hamilton County Justice Center, and asked him if he knew anyone that would do a drive-by shooting on Judge James D. Humphrey. Judge Brian Hill denied my request for a bond reduction stating, “The State also presented evidence that since his arrest, the Defendant may have contemplated violence towards at least one alleged victim in this case.” What Negangard and McHenry failed to mention was that they knew Keith Jones and I were never even in the same building at the Hamilton County jail but they ran with it anyway, in a malicious and vindictive attempt to prosecute me for publicly criticizing the Dearborn County Government.Hamilton County Jail Management Movement History
Prosecutor Negangard is a sick and twisted individual. “Evil” fits in as well. He not only knowingly used Keith Jones’ false statements against me in Court, but Negangard also used Jones’ statements in a quest to build public fear of Dan Brewington. Negangard took a page out of Adolf Hitler’s playbook as Negangard attempted to propagate false fears to the public because he felt that I posed a risk to the ongoing corruption in Dearborn County. Negangard and McHenry pulled in the “military” to perform a 7 day, 24 hour surveillance on Judge Humphrey’s home to bolster their fictional criminal case against me. They knew I had never met Keith Jones yet they wasted thousands of dollars of taxpayer money and dozens of hours of law enforcement manpower when they set up the unnecessary surveillance on Humphrey’s home… but they got caught.
“He is just trying to sabotage his own defense.” That was Prosecutor Negangard’s reasoning as to why I shouldn’t be able to postpone my October 3, 2011 trial to a later date. Why would Negangard care if I was trying to sabotage my own case? He wasn’t concerned; he just didn’t have a valid excuse. I told Judge Hill that my public defender had made no effort to defend me from the Keith Jones allegations. Negangard knew that any inquiry into Negangard and McHenry’s Keith Jones propaganda would not only seal the fate of the case against me, but could seal the fate of their professional careers as well. Negangard probably felt like he was in the clear after Judge Hill denied my request to continue my jury trial, but Negangard never counted on my Ohio Lawyer, who is also representing me in a civil case in the Indian Southern District Federal Court, coming up with a key piece of evidence that would shatter Negangard’s façade.
Now the question is, “Who else knew about this?” Did Judge Sally Blankenship know about Negangard and McHenry’s bogus allegations when she set my bond at $600,000? If she did, who told her because it wasn’t presented to the Court? I find it hard to believe that Judge Blankenship would not be notified about an alleged death threat on a fellow Dearborn County Judge and/or the 7 day, 24 hour police surveillance on Judge Humphrey’s home. Why did she even rule on my case if she was aware of the alleged threat? Could this be the reason neither one of my public defenders wanted anything to do with my Ohio attorney. Maybe they felt more comfortable in allowing me to be convicted rather than tipping the ox cart. And who else was aware that Negangard and McHenry were knowingly using the false accounts of Keith Jones in an effort to destroy me? Did Sheriff Mike Kreinhop know? What about Judge Humphrey? How about Deputies David Lusby and Terry Van Winkle? They were involved in setting up the costly surveillance outside of Humphrey’s home. I wonder if my public defenders were aware of the bogus Jones story. It wouldn’t even surprise me if Judge Brian Hill is aware of Negangard’s shenanigans. Judge Hill met privately with Negangard and my public defender, Bryan Barrett for nearly a half hour before my pretrial hearing on September 19, 2011 and Judge Hill promptly denied my request to continue my trial. Judge Hill denied my request to continue my trial because he said I was adamant about not continuing my trial back in August. I’m still having a hard time figuring out where Judge Hill and Negangard came up with that information because there is no mention in the court record of me being adamant about anything. The fact is that all of the mentioned legal and law enforcement officials were going to allow me to march off to slaughter without questioning Negangard’s fictional threat, while at the same time doing everything in their power to prohibit me from challenging Negangard’s preposterous allegations.
I have no idea how many people knew about the lie of Prosecutor Negangard and Detective/Deputy/Commissioner McHenry. I do know that by posting this information, many people will be aware of their illegal actions. It will be interesting to see if anyone does anything about it. Public internet posts like these are exactly the reason why tyrants like Judge James D. Humphrey and Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard have fought tooth and nail to deprive me of everything that is precious in my life. They have taken my children and my freedom but they could never strip me of my dedication to be a father and they could never detract from the many friends and family who have supported me along the way. Negangard was fully aware of the two precious little girls who were without a father when Negangard did everything in his power to destroy my credibility in order to salvage his own credibility. Negangard coldly and maliciously stomped on the hearts of my 5 and 7 year old daughters by trying to eliminate any hopes that they would be reunited with their father. Negangard’s disingenuous Keith Jones scheme came as a last resort when I refused to take a plea deal that would ensure my release. The prosecutor’s overall strategy has always been to do whatever is necessary to prevent me from damaging the credibility of Negangard and his cronies. Tyrants like Negangard are angered when they discover that respect is a virtue that is earned, not forced. Unfortunately for Negangard, respect is a virtue that will elude him for years to come.
As always, I want to thank everyone for the ongoing support. I also would encourage everyone to contact local, state, and federal authorities to inform them of the illegal actions of Dearborn County Prosecutor F. Aaron Negangard and Dearborn County Commissioner/Special Crimes Unit Detective Shane McHenry. Dearborn County residents should call for the immediate resignation of these officials and should demand that the taxpayers be reimbursed for any monies that Prosecutor Negangard has squandered for his personal vendettas. Maybe finally Prosecutor Negangard will understand the power and importance of our constitutional right to free speech. I hope to see everyone on the outside soon. Thanks again.
