In response to the prosecution's motion to lower Mr. Doutel's charge from Second Degree
Harrassment to Creating a Public Disturbance,
filed a motion on July 3rd, 2012 to remove the protective order that
had been prohibiting Mr. Doutel from possessing weapons. The only justification
the prosecution had previously been able to give for the continued protective order
was the charge of Second Degree Harrassment.
With this move it becomes clear that the prosecution knows that they have no case
against Mr. Doutel and that the only reason they have continued to try and justify
the Second Degree Harrassment charge was to keep Mr. Doutel from being able to exercise
his right to bear arms.
The stage is set, the prosecution has clearly been acting maliciously by overcharging
Mr. Doutel and continually delaying Mr. Doutel's trial. In addition, the court has
been complicit in not hearing Mr. Doutel's continued requests to have a hearing
on whether the protective order is reasonable or not. Mr. Doutel has expressed interest
in not giving in even to this low level infraction and seeing this case through
The prosecution's wall of illusion is crumbling. We have high hopes for more exciting
good news soon.
