In my earlier post, I pointed out that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin failed to properly serve whoever he was attempting to serve in St. Charles, Illinois, because he did not pay for Restricted Delivery as required by Md. Rule 2-121a. (That’s the applicable rule governing service of process by a Maryland resident serving someone in Illinois.) The evidence for that can be seen in the receipt TDPK filed in his report on service in the RICO Madness.
I have no idea why TDPK failed to use Restricted Delivery. I doubt that it was to save $4.75. If I had to guess, I’s say it was likely that Mr. “I’ve-filed-over-a-hundred-lawsuits” was arrogantly confident of his knowledge of the law and applicable rules and didn’t bother to check the actual requirements for service for each locality. Like so much of what TDPK “knows,” his understanding of the mechanics of service of process simply wasn’t based in reality.
Whatever the reason, he seems to have blown it, and it looks as if he’s been caught filing a second altered Certified Mail green card—this time in a federal lawsuit—to try to cover his tracks. Furthermore, this may not be the first altered document he’s proffered to a federal court in the last couple of months.
18 U.S.C. § 1512(c) says:
(c) Whoever corruptly—
(1) alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or other object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or
2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so,
shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
Also, 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c) is a predicate offense under 18 U.S.C. § 1961, et seq., and two separate violations could trigger a RICO civil claim or counterclaim.
