(Continuing this thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3927&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a)

Brief Shawn Rice update

Now that a federal magistrate has allowed him to act as his own lawyer in his criminal case, Shawn Rice is back to stirring up mischief in court.

He recently filed a 19-page document he called “Supoena Duces Tecum, or in the alternative, Petition to Dismiss with Prejudice in This Matter.”

For the rest, visit this page and scroll down to the 2nd bit.

If anyone wishes to get an entire quota of authentic frontier gibberish on the first day of the month, here is Rice's, um, document. Among the more intelligible "arguments" is that Rice cannot be prosecuted due to the failure of the govt to "publish" appropriate "letters of marque and reprisal".

That's pirate stuff. Rice must think he's on Quatloos.

A true legend in his own mind.

How reassuring to learn that Mr. Rice's legal education consists of perusing Gilbert's Notes, Emmanuel's Law Outlines, Am Jur (do you think he got into AmJur 2d), Corpus Juris Secundum, and Contracts in a Nutshell. Cite those sources in a brief to a real court and the judge will laugh at you.

He probably left out his having studied the old Classic Comics dealing with U.S. history -- out of modesty so as not to appear overeducated, I'm sure.

Defendants. )
____________________________________)

Plaintiff, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, by and through counsel of record, opposes
defendant’s Motion to Dismiss Indictment for Lack of Jurisdiction. This opposition is made
and based upon the following and all other pleadings and papers on file with the Court.
It is difficult to decipher all of the defendant’s claims. There seems to be an argument
that the criminal indictment failed to comply with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure, Rule 17 and
does not identify a real person of interest. However, this is not a civil proceeding. Defendant
has been charged by indictment with violating federal criminal offenses. Exhibit 1 (Crim.
Indictment, March 2009). The indictment the Government has brought against the defendant
complies with the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, in particular in this instance Rule 7,
concerning nature and content. The Government has and will continue to proceed with this
matter in compliance with the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.

Furthermore, within the defendant’s somewhat confused legal analysis, there seems to
be a request to dismiss the criminal action on the grounds that this court lacks jurisdiction
because it is a Court of Admiralty. The defendant draws this conclusion based on the idea that
the United States Flag displayed in front of the courthouse is an Admiralty flag. This
assumption is also the basis for the defendant’s demand for the production of documents that
do not exist, and, subsequently, are impossible to produce: i.e., letter(s) of marque and reprisal.

Therefore, this response will address the only clear issue of whether or not it is appropriate for
this court to exercise jurisdiction over the defendant and the subject matter.
The United States Constitution, Article III, sections 1 and 2, invest Congress with the
authority to create federal district courts and to give them jurisdiction in the “exact degree and
character which congress may think proper for the public good.” Cary v. Curtis, 44 U.S. 236,
245 (1845). The United States District Court for the District of Nevada is one of those courts
imbued with original jurisdiction to hear and decide cases pertaining to offenses against the
laws created by Congress. 18 U.S.C. § 3231.
The subject-matter before this court does not relate to the violation of any maritime
laws. The defendant is being charged with the violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1956 (a)(3) and 1956
(h), money laundering and money laundering conspiracy. Exhibit 1 (Crim. Indictment, March
2009). These offenses against the federal law were committed on land in the District of
Nevada and elsewhere. It is nonsensical to believe this court would be exercising jurisdiction
as an Admiralty Court over this matter. Black’s Law Dictionary defines admiralty:
1. A court that exercises jurisdiction over all maritime contracts, torts,
injuries, or offenses. * The federal courts are so called when exercising the
their admiralty jurisdiction, which is conferred by the U.S. Constitution
(art. III, § 2, cl. 1). (8th ed. 2004).
The defendant asserts that the flag in front of the courthouse is an Admiralty flag. The
U.S. Flag is a codified symbol of this nation. The regulation of the flag including its design can
be found in 4 U.S.C. § 1 et .al. Nowhere in the flag code does it refer to the national symbol as
an Admiralty flag nor is the flag regulated to being a symbol of maritime law. The defendant
has concluded erroneously that the flag in front of this courthouse identifies this court to be
exercising admiralty jurisdiction over this matter. Instead, pursuant to the U.S. Constitution
Art. III, § 2, cl. 1 and 18 U.S.C. § 3231, (as this is not a civil action) this court appropriately
has subject-matter jurisdiction over this criminal action.
CONCLUSION
The court is not acting as an admiralty court and has original jurisdiction to hear matters
concerning offenses against the United States. This proceeding is not a civil lawsuit but a
criminal proceeding. The alleged criminal acts are violations of federal law committed within
and outside of the District of Nevada. For the aforementioned reasons, the government
respectfully requests this court to deny the defendant’s motion to dismiss and to quash his
subpoena duces tecum.
DATED this 28th day of August, 2009.

Adapted from my entry at Wikipedia:

On July 24, 2012, Shawn Rice was found guilty in federal court in Nevada in connection with the same money-laundering scheme that resulted in the conviction of Samuel Lynn Davis. The guilty verdicts came on one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, thirteen counts of money laundering, and four counts of failure to appear in court in connection with time that Rice spent as a fugitive. Rice, who had also falsely claimed to be a lawyer and a rabbi, was described as "a leader in the anti-government 'sovereign citizens' movement." Jeff German, July 24, 2012, "Leader in anti-government movement convicted of money laundering," Las Vegas Review-Journal, at:

http://www.lvrj.com/news/leader-in-anti ... 86696.html

During the trial, Rice tried to argue that the presiding federal judge had no authority to render a judgment against Rice. "Anti-government leader found guilty in Vegas case," July 24, 2012, Associated Press, as published by the San Francisco Chronicle, at:

http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Anti ... 731722.php

All things considered, he got off light. After some of the stunts he pulled, he could have wound up dead, so I think he got lucky.

I have been checking on this guy every few months at the web site for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and I have never seen an indication that he was actually in the custody of the Bureau since his sentencing in 2013.

Until now.

The Bureau of Prisons now shows him at the Federal Transfer Center at Oklahoma City (inmate # 89135-008). There is no posting of a projected release date, though.
