Demo - those links don't work.

I took a look at Cryer's requested jury instructions (on PACER). He requests a charge on the anti-injunction act. Why, you may ask (as I did)? Then you come on a couple of others - specifically, how one must make up his own mind as to whether paying taxes is required, since the "civil courts" are supposedly unavailable to decide the question. It certainly appears that Cryer wants to argue that he would have been thrilled, thrilled to litigate over his responsibility to pay taxes, but was prevented by anti-injunction.

I don't think the judge will permit that.

And then there are his seven separate requested charges as to willfullness.

I think the judge is much more likely to give just one.

He also requests charges addressing freedom of speech and the right to petition.

I doubt it.

Moral: yet another brave TP ducking behind Cheek, something I think particularly difficult for a lawyer.

I hear that train a'comin'.

Bringing the Cryer saga up to date: by order filed March 19, Judge Hicks denied Cryer's four separate motions to blather^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hdismiss (just the last of which was 112 pages) in less then three pages, one cite for each motion. Denied, denied, denied, denied. Trial is set for July 9.

What a travesty.

By a memo filed last week, the government has already addressed what appears likely - that Cryer will attempt to argue the meaning or validity of the tax laws to the jury, rather than just the Cheek good faith belief. It points out what Demo and I were discussing above - how difficult it is for a lawyer to argue that he had a good faith misunderstanding of the tax laws.

Cryer should pack his toothbrush.

That decision looks correct to me (even if other circuits disagree)-- a defendant should not be convicted of both tax evasion (7201) and failure to file (7203) for the same year. The dismissal will not seriously prejudice the Government, because the jury will be charged on the misdemenaors as lesser-included offenses.

I do think it apt that the Supreme Court ruling which saved Cryer from the horrible fate of being indicted for two lesser-included offenses was Schmuck v. United States, 489 US 705 (1989).

Perhaps he should also cite Putz v. Nebraska, 540 US 1016 (2003).

No fair citing a non-existent case.

I wouldn't do that, Doc.

I might cite a cert denied if the name was appropriate, though.

The Cryer trial was supposed to start today. Any news on whether or not it went forward. I need to taunt someone over on another board when Cryer is convicted.

Tom Cryer Trial - Day One
Written by djahn
Monday, 09 July 2007

Trial started today with the announcement that the DOJ wanted to abandon the two evasion charges, felonies, and prosecute instead on two counts of failure to file.

A jury was selected this afternoon. You never know whether you've done well or poorly until you get the outcome.

Tomorrow starts with evidence and the gov't should wrap up early in the day and then it's Mr Cryer's turn. He is ready to go. The only question remaining is how successful they will be in stopping him from telling the truth.

We'll convey more as it comes available.

Tom Cryer Trial - Day Two
Written by djahn
Wednesday, 11 July 2007
Here is an update we received from those in attendance.
###


Day Two started with the government presenting its case in the morning session and Tom taking the stand and offering his direct testimony until the close of yesterday's proceedings...

The government first brought an IRS supervisor to the stand... her testimony established the paperwork flow and indicated that Tommy filed "employer" documentation for his "employee" but did not file his individual returns.

Next was Tommy's secretary... she did not show up as a hostile witness towards the prosecution... but in the same breath, she did not give the government any help when she testified that she fills out all of her own IRS forms required of the employer, and even writes and signs most of the checks!

The DOJ tried to get in a point in that area... and she said that Tommy gave her the option to file or not-- then he abruptly stopped her... then on another question... she added that it was her choice to file even after she found out that there was no law making her liable-- where of course, he cut her off again.

The CPA took the stand and testified to profit and loss statements related to Tommy's practice of law... he simply established the numbers but never stated with authority to the lawful and legal definition of income... Larry was able to establish that the CPA had only a very insignificant understanding of the IRC.

The government's final witness was an IRS "special agent" in the Criminal Investigation Division who testified to the 'audits' of Tom's business and on Larry's cross-exam made it clear that the 'Code" is enormous and he only knew small bits and pieces of some of it... The IRS used Section 61 of the IRC to prop up its claim of liability to file and pay income taxes... but failed to clarify the first three words of Section 61... which state, "Unless otherwise provided..."

After lunch Tom took the stand...

There were some fireworks during Tom's testimony and the judge was clearly aggravated with the rule of law being presented in 'his' courtroom... and several times stopped Tom's testimony. One of those times the judge brought up the "Cheek" ruling where Larry and the judge went around and around on Tom's right to present his beliefs to the jury.

The judge overruled an objection of the prosecutor on another occasion but also warned Larry about the "very narrow" path he's taking the case and will not allow Tom to argue that the IRS is unconstitutional... which of course Tom never intended to do and has not done in the least.

Day Two ended with the judge calling counsel into the judge's chamber and unloading... venting his frustration mainly aimed at Larry and Tom taking over the courtroom and plowing ahead with getting the Internal Revenue Code... the Code of Federal Regs, the Constitution and a plethora of Supreme Court cases in front of the jury.

At the close of yesterday's hearing... the judge ordered Larry to turn over Tom's notes and research to the DOJ as the court believed that Tom's notebook filled with law and supporting Supreme Court cases was "discovery" and therefore the DOJ was entitled to it...

Larry quickly agreed to that and even told the court that it would be a very good thing for the prosecutor to read and urged the prosecutor to read it carefully and essentially looked forward to seeing more of it in the record and presented to the jury during cross-examination of Tom's beliefs.

Day three promises to be very interesting! The parties will meet prior to the start to discuss jury instructions before the jury is brought in and seated. The DOJ opens day three with cross-examination and Larry's re-direct may well occur before noon and closing arguments will surely take place before the close of today's proceedings...

Please let everyone know that http://www.truthattack.org will be providing you with exclusive MP3 audio interviews with Larry, Tommy (if possible) and attendees of the court proceedings and anyone else that I can get my microphone in front of today!

Tommy Cryer: Acquited at trial

Postby circle456 » Thu Jul 12, 2007 9:00 pm

Even though the "Court" disallowed Cryer from introducing the Internal Revenue Code in to evidence, Mr. Cryer was verbally able to get enough information to the attention of the Jury that they voted to Acquit. Unlike Irwin Schiff, or Ed and Elaine Brown, Mr. Cryer is an Attorney and skilled at getting ideas through to a listener. Jury: NOT GUILTY !!

I've recently learned of another case, Huerto, I believe, in which Mr. Huerto offered to plead "Guilty" to 7203 charges. But, since 26 USC 7203 is a penalty section, Huerto asked the Prosecutor to produce the underlying liability statute so that he could learn what it was he would be pleading guilty to.

OOOOPS......DOJ couldn't find one; CASE DISMISSED !!

Too bad for Cryer, he still has to pay all the taxes, penalties, and interest for those tax years.

No one - least of all you - who is not on the jury knows why they acquit.

One of those is conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, another conspiracy to distribute crack, and the rest illegal re-entry after deportation. Friends of yours?

Any other rumors you'd like to post?
