In Re #BillSchmalfeldt

Early this afternoon, evidence was presented to a District Court Commissioner regarding messages I have received from Bill Schmalfledt in violation of the peace order. The Commissioner found probable cause for 38 counts of violation of the peace order. A summons was issued.

I do not plan to have any further comment on this matter until advised to do so by either my counsel or the State’s Attorney’s Office.

UPDATE—Count 1 in the summons is for electronic mail harassment (Md Criminal Law § 3-805). Counts 2 through 37 are for violation of the peace order (Md Courts & Judicial Proceedings § 3-1508). Count 38 is for harassment (Md Criminal Law § 3-803).

UPDATE 2—I’m getting questions about the possible consequences for the charges. Here are the texts of the relevant parts of the laws.

§ 3-805. Misuse of electronic communication or interactive computer service.
(e) Penalty. — A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to imprisonment not exceeding 1 year or a fine not exceeding $ 500 or both.

§ 3-1508. Penalties.
(a) Fines or imprisonment. — An individual who fails to comply with the relief granted in an interim peace order under § 3-1503.1 of this subtitle, a temporary peace order under § 3-1504(a)(2) of this subtitle, or a final peace order under § 3-1505(d)(1)(i), (ii), (iii), or (iv) of this subtitle is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to:
(1) For a first offense, a fine not exceeding $ 1,000 or imprisonment not exceeding 90 days or both; and
(2) For a second or subsequent offense, a fine not exceeding $ 2,500 or imprisonment not exceeding 1 year or both.

§ 3-803. Harassment
(c) Penalty. — A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to:
(1) for a first offense, imprisonment not exceeding 90 days or a fine not exceeding $ 500 or both; and
(2) for a second or subsequent offense, imprisonment not exceeding 180 days or a fine not exceeding $ 1,000 or both.

If I’ve done the math right, that could mean up to 35 years and 180 days in jail or up to $89,500 in fines.

  1. BS has changed his Christopher butt sock account to “Old Man Butt
    @OldManButt1” after I called attention to it.


    • Actually, sometimes my feed shows that both exist, then one disappears, but who knows. These socks (HoCoLiberal, anyone) are how BS has evaded the PO.


    • Old Man Butt is my twitter account. I was re-tweeting him to archive all the times he used @WJJHoge. If you look at my earliest tweets you’ll see I’m mocking his efforts.


      • Yes, I’m @OldManButt1. It was a twitter account I set up for fun. My first 6 tweets were to Bill. He blocked and reported me, and I was put on suspension. All in my first 20 minutes on twitter! LOL


  2. Interesting how THREE counts turns into “38 charges” in the deranged cyberstalkers brain. Something to keep in mind.


  3. As I mentioned earlier, crazy and stupid truly is a bad combination. He simply can’t help himself. Not that anyone should have to put up with it.


    • He still does not get Res Judicata, and thinks he is going to get to relitigate everything from scratch at the hearing on the petition to extend the PO.


      • Proof that BS is incompetent to manage legal matters: my comment above deals with the motion to extend the PO. In response to my comment, he tweets this response – about the CONTEMPT MOTION –

        ‘WMS Broadcasting ‏@WMSBroadcasting 2m
        Dumbass. I will get to present a case as to why I should not be held in contempt. I get to present evidence.”

        There’s a dumbass in this mix alright, and he lives in Elkridge, in a trailer with dogs who poop the bed.


  4. It is however, interesting watching him melt down on his latest Twitter account. 😀

    In all seriousness, however, let’s hope that he gets what is coming to him.


  5. PA. WOMAN IN STALKING CASE BANNED FROM TWITTER
    Nov. 7, 2013 9:16 PM EST

    NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia woman has been banned from using Twitter as part of her sentence for a stalking conviction.

    Montgomery County Judge William Carpenter barred 34-year-old Sadiyyah Young of Pottstown from tweeting for at least five years.

    Authorities say Young used derogatory and harassing tweets against people involved in a custody case regarding her children, including a judge who ruled against her, lawyers, social workers and foster parents.

    The monthlong battle included a tweet that read, in part: “Somebody should pay all these people a visit, bust out windows and cut tires!”

    Young pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor charges of stalking, forgery, and identity theft. She also was sentenced to 11 1/2 months to 23 months in jail and three years’ probation.

    Derogatory, harassing, and threatening tweets. Ring a bell?


  6. Can I say that I’m only not doing a happy dance in the anticipation that justice will be served because I’ve lost faith in the court system in CT?


  7. § 3-1508. Failure to comply
    (a) An individual who fails to comply with the relief granted in an interim peace order under § 3-1503.1 of this subtitle, a temporary peace order under § 3-1504(a)(2) of this subtitle, or a final peace order under § 3-1505(d)(1)(i), (ii), (iii), or (iv) of this subtitle is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to:

    (1) For a first offense, a fine not exceeding $1,000 or imprisonment not exceeding 90 days or both; and

    (2) For a second or subsequent offense, a fine not exceeding $2,500 or imprisonment not exceeding 1 year or both.

    Arrests with or without warrant

    (b) A law enforcement officer shall arrest with or without a warrant and take into custody an individual who the officer has probable cause to believe is in violation of an interim peace order, temporary peace order, or final peace order in effect at the time of the violation.


  8. Some musings:
    – BS will bait WJJH about Zoa Barnes, and he is smart enough not to bite. Their attorney-client business is none of his.
    – Unfortunately, for the next 2.5 months, we will be deluged with the same crap that BS spewed before his embarrassing court failures in October.
    – I predict that there are other shoes to drop.
    – A reminder:
    “Bill Schmalfeldt ‏@Fite_Rite_Radio You know why Hoge is going to be humiliated? Hubris. Sheer, blatant hubris and the inability to admit a mistake. 4:53 PM – 4 Oct 13”

    Bill was humiliated and thoroughly, utterly wrong, but he refuses to learn. He is making the same predictions and arguing the same failed legal analyses.


  9. It would be a nice change in how things have been going, to see the system make progress on holding Cabin Boy accountable for his criminal acts.

  13. IANAL but I think Bill WILL get to re-litigate the harassment case. In his NEW charge of harassment he should be able to bring in his theory on why he did not harass WJJ Hoge.

    However WJJ’s lawyer gets to use the fact that Bill has already been adjudicated as a harasser as impeachment testimony.

    At least that is the way I *think* it will work.
