Subj: Subpoena Service Location Request

It is my intention to subpoena the following 3 employees of your client for San Diego East County Superior Court – Case: ED100465:

Iowa Conference The United Methodist Church, 2301 Rittenhouse St., Des Moines, Iowa 50321
******** ****** **** – Superintendant Central District

Hope United Methodist Church, 2203 S 3rd Ave, Marshalltown, IA 50158
*** ***** – Pastor
****** ********** – Worship Arts Coordinator

Regarding your clients no contact/no trespassing order utilizing the Marshalltown Police Department for the purpose of suppressing their alleged involvement with a party in a California court case who has spread false allegations of multiple felony charges of sexual assault and illegally concealed children in that court case for the last 4 years please advise where my paralegal can serve these subpoenas.

As you are aware a subpoena is a legal document that provides legal access to evidence or testimony that under current circumstances is difficult or impossible to access. I expected a much higher level of ethical conduct from an organization that claims to testify to the truth and who approximately 25 years ago sprinkled what evidence shows was regular H2O on my head. Righteousness is determined in daily conduct and action, not by the Internal Revenue Service identifying you as a nontaxable organization.

I am currently communicating with Detective Tejada of the Marshalltown Poice Department to ensure that my utilization of my rights under the First Amendment of the US Constitution that I spent 20 years of my life defending are within the parameters of your client’s no contact/no trespassing order. The purpose of my public communications is for transparency and to restore the truth in my life that evidence I have shows your client was a part of damaging or withholding testimony that could have helped restore the health and safety of two children.

I am also taking this opportunity to advise you that any future threats of involving the police as an attempt to intimidate while showing the same behavioral pattern as your client will be reported to The Iowa Start Bar Association immediately along with all previous correspondence between your office and mine. In my analysis of human behavior, I have found that people that announce something that they lack the courage or intention to execute shows only evidence of deceit and intentions to manipulate another party. As a legal professional that represents integrity, ethics, and the representation of law in the state of Iowa I find your previous behavior rather alarming and inconsistent with your profession.
