Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer Contempt Of Court Hearing RESCHEDULED, More Specifics Of His Probation Violation Confirmed...

Contributed photo, albeit taken with MY camera, blog post by John Hoff

It's already been published in a comment stream on a previous blog post, but in case anybody missed it: Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer's "order to show cause" for contempt of court has been scheduled for April 11, 2011, at 9 AM before the Honorable James T. Swenson.

Apparently, taxpayers will be required to transport Rickmyer from prison at Lino Lakes so he can attend the hearing. Despite the fact Rickmyer was sent to prison for violating his Rule 9 frivolous litigant status, and pushing his atrocious and confusing "injunction" paperwork in the direction of this blog, Rickmyer must still...

...face a judge for "contempt of court" for doing essentially the same thing that got his probation revoked.

Confusing? Yes.

A case of "double jeopardy?" No.

Separate charges can arise from precisely the same action. For example, you might be drunk in public AND commit disorderly conduct. You might be guilty of TWO THINGS for doing ONE THING. In this case, it appears Rickmyer violated his probation AND probably committed contempt of court. But as for the contempt of court...we shall see.

In regard to the photo above: if you think that photo looks eerily familiar, you are right.

Compare and contrast with the photo in this blog post, linked here.

Also, I can now positively confirm Rickmyer went to prison for violating his probation directly because of trying to slap paper on this blog, and then attempting to file an affidavit of service. I am in possession of a copy of a handwritten letter Rickmyer scribbled to the judge from jail, which confirms the specifics.

And let me tell you, getting a copy of that letter without once actually touching the court file (the better not to get served, my dear) was a bit of a gymnastic act, but I accomplished it.
