Fourth Forgery
Posey Superior Court Judge, "James Redwine"

Fall of 99 One week before the trial against Posey County Farm Bureau Co-op, Superior Court Judge, James Redwine, called a pretrial hearing. In this hearing, he said, Jim, you are not allowed to show the jury the forgeries. I said, what did you say, Judge Redwine said, I said you cannot show the jury the forgeries. I said, you just cost me my life, ever thing I have worked for.

Shortly after the pretrial hearing and without a trial with Posey County Farm Bureau Co-op, I was called "ordered" back into Superior Court by Judge James Redwine. I was informed that the Court and Posey County Farm Bureau Co-op had reach and agreement about a settlement "for me" "It was without my permission". I was informed by the judge, that a settlement of $50,000.00 was to be given to me. The judge also informed me that I "must sign" the check and the money approximately $30,000.00 will be given to the attorney "Larry Daly" that I had fired for not doing his work and the remainder would go the National City Bank. I said, I refuse to sign the settlement and the check, my losses are for more than $50,000.00 - Judge, James Redwine said, that's OK, I will sign your signature for you. and he did.

  This is the Fourth Forgery of my signature in this case.
