Family of 17 Year Old Michigan Boy Shot By Deputy In Traffic Stop Raise Lawsuit Against Eaton County Sheriff’s Office

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 in Police Lawsuits | Comments Off on Family of 17 Year Old Michigan Boy Shot By Deputy In Traffic Stop Raise Lawsuit Against Eaton County Sheriff’s Office

The Guilford family of Mulliken, Michigan have engaged Detroit based law firm Constitutional Litigation Associates, who specialize in police lawsuits, to file a lawsuit against the Eaton County Sheriff’s department and one Sgt. Jonathon Frost, who shot their 17 year old son seven times during a traffic stop on February 28th 2015, resulting in the boy’s death.

Four months earlier, Eaton County Prosecutor Doug Lloyd had found Jonathon Frost not guilty of any wrongdoing in the incident, however parents of the victim, Deven Guilford, who was unarmed at the time of his shooting, have filed against the Sheriff’s department and are demanding a trial by jury. Their claim does not ask for any monetary payment in terms of damages.

Why Was Deven Guilford Shot?

It was at around 8pm on February 28th, in the Roxand Township, that Deven Guilford was stopped by Sgt. Frost. Guilford was believed to be traveling to his girlfriend’s house having just been to a basketball game, with plans to stay in and watch movies together. The traffic stop was initiated after Guildford flashed Frost’s car, because he thought Frost had his brights on.

Deven Guilford was recording the stop on his phone’s camera, and Frost also had a body camera, though his vehicle was not, according to Eaton County Prosecutor Doug Lloyd, fitted with the ‘dash’ cameras sometimes used on law enforcement cars.

Deven Guilford could not produce his license and insurance papers when asked to by Frost, which Lloyd established would have been classed as a misdemeanor. It later transpired that Guilford did not have his license with him, as it was at his girlfriend’s house, where he was headed. Guilford asked Frost for his badge number, but Frost declined to give it to him.

Frost then pulled Deven Guilford out of the vehicle and made him lay on his stomach beside the car. He attempted to cuff Guilford, who refused to put his hands behind his back to allow him to do this. At this point Frost used a stun gun on Guilford to subdue him, but it did not work fully as only one of the probes hit the youth.

It was at this point that the initial investigation Lloyd used in his ruling determined that there was an altercation between the Sgt. and the teen, which ended up in a ditch full of snow. Frost’s camera was no longer functioning, and Guilford’s cellphone was left behind, so there is no footage of this part of the incident, except for the audio of the seven shots which killed Deven Guilford being fired.
Frost escaped with minor facial injuries which were treated immediately.
Deven Guilford’s parents state that this tragic event has seriously shaken their trust in law enforcement and justice, and seek a full trial for Frost by jury. Their lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

Developer Misappropriates Immigrants Who Invested

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 in Misappropriate | Comments Off on Developer Misappropriates Immigrants Who Invested

On Tuesday an attorney for a federal regulator alleged that the developer LobsangDargey had misappropriated $46 million of immigrant investment funds. These people were investing in the downtown Seattle Potala Tower. As a result, the court has frozen the assets of Mr. Dargey and his company Path America.

usan LaMarca, the SEC attorney stated to U.S. District Judge James Robart that after investigating this case, $63 million had been invested by immigrant investors. However, only $17 million had been received for the Seattle Potala Tower and used in the manner it was intended to be used. It is alleged that the rest of these funds were redirected to LobsangDargey’s other companies and other activities that had nothing to do with the 40-story Tower.

Judge Refuses LobsangDargey’s Request to Unfreeze Bank Accounts
Dargey requested that his bank accounts for his company Path America and its related companies should be unfrozen. However, this was denied by U.S. District Judge James Robart. Judge Robart justified this bank account freeze by stating that “There is a reasonable likelihood that violations of federal securities laws will continue.”

Dargey’s assets were frozen on the same day the action was taken by the SEC. Since then, certain, approved payments have been allowed and some Chinese investors have been given refunds. Susan LaMarca believes the current freezing of assets will prevent the “massive, massive misuse of investor funds” in the future. Tuesday’s hearing will determine whether or not this freeze continues.

LobsangDargey’s Attorney Questions the Freeze LobsangDargey’s attorney, Daniel Dunne expressed his concern about the freeze. He stated that it is harming Dargey’s business and could also have negative consequences for immigrant investors who are hoping to obtain EB-5 visas.
Dunne went on to say that Dargey has not sent money out of the country to further his interests. However, this has been challenged by the SEC who allege that over $3 million in EB-5 funds have been transferred to one of Dargey’s bank accounts in Hong Kong. According to Dunne “All the money, all the assets are hiding in plain sight”.

Work has currently stopped on the Potala Tower. Daniel Dunne stated that few of the EB-5 investors want their money back, with a small number looking for a refund.  Dunne continued to question the validity of the freeze by stating that immigrant investors who invested in Dargey’s projects were not looking for refunds. They had received many of the benefits of these types of investments such as eligibility for Green Cards.

He also gave examples of successful recent investments made by Chinese real-estate firms who were dealing with Dargey and his company Path America and stated that his clients’ assets needed to be unfrozen so he could continue to operate successfully.

In response, Judge Robart said “Don’t talk to me about the expectations of investors. Talk to me about the issues the SEC has raised, compelling evidence of misappropriation of funds.”

A Friday hearing will take place and the SEC will be attempting to appoint a receiver to manage Path America and its concerns.
