Judge rules Yellow House Store owner is mentally competent to stand trial

August 29, 2011

Advertisement

Reversing a ruling he made in 2009, a federal judge Monday declared Guy Neighbors, an owner of the former Yellow House Store in Lawrence, mentally competent to stand trial in the three cases he faces.

U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia Monday afternoon followed a recommendation from prosecutors and the defense attorney to declare Neighbors competent for trial after a second psychiatrist had recently evaluated Neighbors and disagreed with the 2009 findings of a Bureau of Prisons psychiatrist. In the new evaluation, Dr. John H. Wisner of Kansas University Hospital found that Neighbors did not suffer from a mental disease or defect and that he could both understand the charges against him and assist in his defense.

In the main case, federal prosecutors accuse Neighbors, 53, of selling stolen goods from the former secondhand store, 1904 Mass. His wife, Carrie Neighbors, 50, in January was sentenced to serve eight years in prison after a jury convicted her in the case. She is appealing the verdict.

Gary Hart, a defense attorney for Guy Neighbors, has also asked that his client be released from custody on bond pending his trial, and Murguia has scheduled a Sept. 6 hearing on that issue.

Today, Sept 6, 2011, Guy Neighbors has a hearing in the 10th circuit court of Judge Murguia to be released from custody on bond pending his trial......(still) competent after two years of incarceration , most in a mental facility for evaluations at the request of "they need to be taught a lesson" USAs Marietta Parker and Terra Moorehead. Judge Murguia ruled on behalf of the federal prosecutors request however the appellate court send the rulings back to be done correctly..that's when GN was recently declared competent.

Incarcerated for sending an email... http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2009/may... U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. O’Hara ruled that Guy M. Neighbors, an owner of the Yellow House Store, 1904 Mass., posed a threat of “continued criminal defamation of government counsel and witnesses.” Neighbors made statements in the e-mail that accused prosecutors and police of corruption in the stolen-goods case against him.

http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2009/jun... U.S. Attorney Marietta Parker in a response to Pilate’s motion argued that Guy Neighbors should remain in custody until the October trial because his statements in the April 22 e-mail were rumors that could intimidate witnesses from testifying.

Murguia's rulings at the beckoning of US attorney Marietta Parker are being over turned as slowly as the federal court can manage..BAU

Question...would that same complaint by GN been justification for incarceration (revocation of bond) if sent via USP mail service?

Another question ..how did GNs email per U.S. Attorney Marietta Parker.....(could) intimidate witnesses from testifying. ??..How could any officials be intimidated by a private email not made public by GN? Seems that the information leaks are within the federal process not GNs emails.

KUPD, Mike Riner, tell us what makes you beleive that your posts about the Neighbors and the YH case as investigator and testifier in the federal case of the YH are ethically and legally permitted.

What did you think was allowed by law?

Did the KUPD know and allow your behavior?

Did you perjure in your testimony on the YH case?

Where is your professed and loyal abusive friend UNIKU, who also claims to be an ex-KUPD?

You tell us how many names have you used to disparage the YH.

I'd almost be willing to bet ten bucks all Guy does, if for some moronic reason he is released, does nothing but whine and moan but nothing legally.

Yeah, watching it get all spread out on the table so we can get a truly good laugh would be nice, but when it got laughed out of court, we'd never hear the end of smitty and company.

Face it, son... no one believes you. You've been on this rant for not even God knows how long at this point, and nary a legal motion has been filed on these alleged crimal actions by those in power. Yer a laughing stock. Please keep posting your rants. The rest of us could use a chuckle once in a while.

Incarnated for an email with charges about LPD and other officials involved in case. ( it's questionable that the same information/communication sent by UPS mail would have warranted imprisonment)

A Colorado mental evaluation and another evaluation in N.C. by federal employed psychiatrists both found Guy incompetent while two private sector evaluations found Guy competent.......Guy Neighbors was found competent by KU med evaluation (private sector) as he was by another private sector evaluator prior to incarceration.

He has been incarcerated for over two years

Guy Neighbors has a hearing Tuesday Sept 6. (to be released) What's different?...Guy ?? What's different that allows Guy Neighbors to be "safe " for release back into the community is....finally....the story is unfolding in front of the federal appeals court of 10th circuit.

If I remember correctly, Guy N posts were quite entertaining. The more frustrated and mad he got, the comments became even more outrageous. Hence the claims the police department was trying to get rid of them so they could get a hold of their building. Probably so they could coordinate those speed traps. We might be in for some fun. Oh, and don't forget to pay those overdue property taxes when you get out Guy.

I'm still waiting for Smitty and Co. to bring charges over these alleged illegal actions by various public officials.

I already know they can't, because it is a load of buffalo bagels, but it would be damned funny to watch them get smacked down.

Unfortunately, we'd have to put up with that many more conspiracy theory posts and whining about how 'the Man' is putting them down, so some other such nonsense.

I still stand by my opinion that they are lying through their teeth, most likely because they got busted for one thing or another and have a grudge. Either that or they want Yellow House to come back so they can go back to fencing their 'merchandise', which was of course legally obtained.

See, I can make insinuations too. And obviously it MUST be golden truth because it's said online, which just proves my point.

Yer a bunch of fools dancing to a fool's tune. Well, that and comedy relief at a time when a lot of people could use a good laugh. I'm honest enough to admit, though, that it would be a pleasure to do it in your face.

BlackVelvet. Too true Smitty is never happy, when the PD doesn't fire someone they are corrupt...when they do fire someone the the department is corrupt... They Chief's are all corrupt nomatter how long they have been there. Smitty must have been one of those kids who tried to make different pictures with connect a dot pages by not following the numbers in order. Were the teachers back then part of a conspiracy as well...

I think she has all these posts saved in a word document and just repeatedly pulls them out depending onthe story she is commenting on at the time. I wish I could find the old posts she made about the City being liable for her daughter ingesting a green fog/smoke near water plant. I have never seen the green fog or maybe the Riddler has blown smoke in her face and made her the way she is.

LPD has well over 120 employees. A couple have done things that most aren't proud of. Don't paint the entire bunch with a broad brush and imply all LPD employees are guilty. If someone were to make all-encompassing statements about any other group of people I would imagine you'd be screaming from the rooftops so please don't be a hypocrite and do it to the Police. Cite a specific incident you have proof of but don't paint them all with your brush-as you have done in the past.

http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/jul... A judge has been asked to revoke bond for the owners of Yellow House because federal prosecutors say the couple published false blog posts to criminally defame three Lawrence police officers and a postal inspector.

But attorneys for store owners Guy and Carrie Neighbors say the blog posts are protected free speech. For nearly three years, the couple has said allegations that they've knowingly sold stolen goods were false. And they've repeatedly accused law enforcement and prosecutors of corruption.

The U.S. Attorney's office argues that the blogs are untrue and were written to intimidate officers and other witnesses from testifying.........

It's so hilarious that GuyN was incarcerated as threat to local LE for registering a complaint via email that now is of no merit to his incarceration.(false imprisonment?). The only thing changed is an appeals court involvement in rulings that the 10th circuit Judge Murguia. GNs incarceration and then incompetency rulings were a divide and conquer move as an attempt to get a plea form one or both of the framed YH owners.

I still beleive this is a drug war revenge arrest where the egos of Khatib, Ward, McAtee, resulted in our federally well connected ex-LPD Olin calling in the tax and postal investigations.

Branson was correct in not bring any charges against the YH in spite of the LPDs claim of the largest most sophisticated fencing operation. More like it had to be called something historical to sooth the egos of the LPD.

FYI...Guy Neighbors parole officer is verifying information associated with his release.

Lawrence's city commission and city manager , LPD. ex-chief Olin, Ex-KUPD and FOP BOD officer, Mike Riner, ......... GuyN will soon be free to do further work on those claims of corruption(AKA corruption charges).

It will take a very large table to hide all of those complicit with this situation?

U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. O'Hara dismissed a motion from prosecutors to revoke the bond of defendant Guy Neighbors. O'Hara also dismissed a motion that Guy and co-defendant Carrie Neighbors filed without their attorneys asking a judge to dismiss cases against them, saying prosecutors have been vindictive.....

....O'Hara ruled this week that Assistant U.S. Attorney Terra D. Morehead did not include enough information in her motion. The magistrate judge also said based on the limited information he did not believe it warranted putting Neighbors in jail until the trial....... http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/oct...

Terra Moorehead was removed for the case...Marietta Parker was removed form the case by retirement, Judge O'hara was replaced with Judge Murguia...Murguia's management and decisions in this case are being over tuned and challenged as the 10th circuit appeals court moves toward the Neighbors freedom.

The 10th circuit appellate courts are acting in agreement with the YH claims.

The cause is way more than the YH case. For me, My education on systemic corruption began with the cover up of the circumstances in the LPD murder(deemed justifiable) of Gregg Sevier. YH does serve as an excellent local example of a national problem. Corruption by the legal system is rampant in our country.

http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20091105/court05_st.art.htm The case, which could affect prosecutors' methods in cases nationwide, is being closely watched by defendants' rights and civil liberties groups, such as the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, which raise concerns in a "friend of the court" brief about "overzealous and dishonest" prosecutors.

Twenty-seven states and the Justice Department are trying to shield prosecutors from claims for damages tracing to any trial testimony.

We can call it the LPD sponsored law that built a bigger pawn shop.

John Geery, the store’s manager, said business always has been good at the pawn shop, but it has about doubled over the last several years. Now, though, it has gotten to the point the store is becoming too cramped.

“We’ve got merchandise piled up on merchandise,” Geery said. “I’m a big fan of having a lot of stuff to show people, but it has gotten to the point that we need to do something.”

Plans call for the building to expand to the east, with some parking being moved to the back of the building. Construction is scheduled to start this spring.

Once the project is completed, expect the pawn shop to expand its offerings in both guns and jewelry. Geery said business for both has been good. http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/jan...

“Several sets of burglars we have dealt with know which stores in town have the weakest recording systems, or recording systems that they can manipulate so they do not have to present identification for their transaction,” said Detective M.T. Brown in written testimony to the House Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee......

......Brown said some businesses in Lawrence have complained about other businesses not taking information, receiving stolen property and increasing their inventory.

“This sets up an unfair advantage for businesses with less-than-credible business practices,” he said.__ http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/feb/05/lawrence-police-say-proposal-would-better-track-st/#c1524956

You know what is really pathetic? Smitty's attempt to have the KS law HB2059 referred to as Carrie's law. Nobody but nobody calls it that except smitty and probably YH. Do a search, nowhere will you find it called that except in LJW blogs by smitty. Oh wait, maybe that's part of the conspiracy. Oh and no it doesn't count if you (smitty & YH) have called it that on some other site you have posted it that way yourself. Pathetic.

Consider this....

Guy Neighbors was incarcerated for sending an e-mail that attempted to log an official inquiry into the actions of federal prosecutors and Lawrence police officers.

However, had Guy Neighbors used snail mail, the incarceration would not have been happened. He was put behind bars for filing a complaint via email.

http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2009/may... A federal magistrate judge has revoked the bond of a Lawrence man who sent a blast e-mail last month criticizing federal prosecutors and Lawrence police officers.

U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. O’Hara ruled that Guy M. Neighbors, an owner of the Yellow House Store, 1904 Mass., posed a threat of “continued criminal defamation of government counsel and witnesses.” Neighbors made statements in the e-mail that accused prosecutors and police of corruption in the stolen-goods case against him.

.....When Katyal worried that prosecutors would "flinch" from their duties, Justice Sonia Sotomayor suggested a prosecutor should indeed flinch "when he suspects evidence is perjured or fabricated." Sotomayor, a former prosecutor who seemed more sympathetic to the claims of McGhee and Harrington, elicited from Katyal that the Iowa prosecutors were never sanctioned for their actions.

She said she believed prosecutors nationwide were rarely disciplined for improper conduct in the investigatory stage. Justice John Paul Stevens also expressed concerns about shielding prosecutors for bad acts that occur long before they began to prepare for trial.

Justice Anthony Kennedy responded heatedly to arguments by the Iowa prosecutors' lawyer, Stephen Sanders, that they cannot be liable for any fabrication that ends up being used at trial.

"So the law is the more deeply you're involved in the wrong, the more likely you are to be immune?" Kennedy said. "That's a strange proposition."

Justice Samuel Alito, who also is a former prosecutor, worried about frivolous lawsuits against government lawyers. He said the line between investigative and prosecutorial stages is not always so clear, and noted that prosecutors often deal with unsavory witnesses who have credibility issues but who can legitimately make a case.

Paul Clement, a former U.S. solicitor general representing McGhee and Harrington, said prosecutors' procuring legitimate evidence is not at issue. Rather, he said, "I don't think we want them shaping the witness for trial. I think we want them trying to figure out who actually committed this crime."

Chief Justice John Roberts speculated that if McGhee and Harrington were allowed to press their claim, prosecutors would be vulnerable to lawsuits simply because a defendant was acquitted. He suggested a defendant might say, "He fabricated (the evidence). Nobody believed it when it was presented at trial."

Added Roberts, "We're concerned about the chilling effect on the prosecutors."**

Let's talk about the vast need for a reform in our federal justice system. Frame up by federal prosecutors was bound to resurface in the analysis of YH case. They can not do such acts in a vacuum, either. There is a long trail that leads to the illegal framing of those who generally refuse to take a plea.

**The Supreme Court has indeed said that prosecutors are immune from suit for anything they do at trial. But in this case, Harrington and McGhee maintain that before anyone being charged, prosecutors gathered evidence alongside police, interviewed witnesses and knew the testimony they were assembling was false.

The prosecutors counter that there is "no freestanding constitutional right not to be framed." Stephen Sanders, the lawyer for the prosecutors, will tell the Supreme Court on Wednesday that there is no way to separate evidence gathered before trial from the trial itself. Even if a prosecutor files charges against a person knowing that there is no evidence of his guilt, says Sanders, "that's an absolutely immunized activity." **

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2009-11-04-court-immunity_N.htm **WASHINGTON — Supreme Court justices struggled Wednesday with whether prosecutors, who usually are shielded from civil rights lawsuits, can be held responsible for framing defendants with false testimony and fabricated evidence.

Deputy U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal, backing local Iowa prosecutors in the case, urged the justices to rule that prosecutors' immunity for actions related to their trial work also covers any investigatory misconduct that led to charges in the first place.

Katyal said the court should not focus on officials who abuse their authority but rather the overriding goals of the justice system. "(T)his court's decisions have said … that absolute immunity doesn't exist to protect bad apples," he insisted. "It reflects a larger interest in protecting judicial information coming into the judicial process. If prosecutors have to worry at trial that every act they undertake will somehow open up the door to liability, they will flinch in the performance of their duties."....

Hey!!! Where did ya all go?? This is just getting interesting. We can weed out much of the trivia and get on with the current situation now.

What would happen if Guy Neighbors refuses to attend that bogus hearing on the 6th because he believes all the past hearings have been a set up and he will no longer be jerked around?? Wouldn't that be hilarious??

Actually there is no reason for Guy Neighbors to attend that hearing on the 6th other than Judge Murguia wants him to go thru strip searches and sit in the waiting cell for endless hours until the hearing ...then wait for several more endless hours until the van goes back to Leavenworth for another strip search.

10th circuit court Judge Murguia can rule on this without GN's presence, as has been done in the past on the YH case.

Guess the 10th circuit prosecutors and judge are still teaching lessons, not legal lessons but ego driven lessons of vengence!!

Reversing a ruling he made in 2009, a federal judge Monday declared Guy Neighbors, an owner of the former Yellow House Store in Lawrence, mentally competent to stand trial in the three cases he faces.

Murguia was forced into changing his ruling only after the appeals court found his earlier rulings wrong. Murguia was in concert with the USA Marietta Parker by deciding the Neighbors needed to be taught a lesson. ( In the transcripts)

Are you conceding their brilliance.

My other point of confusion here is how often you cite corruption, but then you back it when they try to kick out someone perceived as corrupt. Have you ever thought maybe Peck was dirty and Khatib and Olin did the right thing to let him go. Didn't the DA dismiss all of the cases related to him also. Khatib and Olin are dirty if and corupt except when they let somone go who could be corrupt.

Pointed out above. Two years ago GN posed a threat of “continued criminal defamation of government counsel and witnesses but now, after being declared competent Guy Neighbors could very well be released on bond for is new trial and nothing changed his his "threat to the government" other than a two year struggle with that(our) government.

But the agreement restricts those involved in the case from discussing it publicly, including on Internet forums

KUPD, Mike Riner, that included you. and you know that it is not permitted for an officer involved in a case to post information or biased information to taint the case even without a federal court ruling so.

0

smitty 2 years, 7 months ago

U.S. Attorney Marietta Parker in a response to Pilate’s motion argued that Guy Neighbors should remain in custody until the October trial because his statements in the April 22 e-mail were rumors that could intimidate witnesses from testifying.

Imagine that. However Michale Riner was posting prolifically on the case that Riner investigated and was a witness for the prosecutor. But USA Parker did not object to Mikey's online disparagement of the YH owners nor the potential influence that KUPD Michael Riner's comments could have on the jury pool who would go to the JW site to read up on the local case. But then KUPD,Michael Riner, although since retired is an officer on the FOP board who thinks they have his back.

So you are conceding Khatib and Olin are brilliant and th eultimate masterminds. So if that is true is it a conspiracy or did they make appear to be a conspiracy or did they conspire with Peck and YH to create the appearance of conspiracy so they could spend time in jail and then make millions off the movie and book deals they will split with OLin and Khatib once it hits...then come all the tv appearances and Reality TV series. THEY ARE BRILLIANT.

HE needs to stand trial either way to get it over with. I think Smitty needs to write a book and or in a diary because no one around here believes the line anymore. find some people outside of Lawrence who were not around and following the stories you quote real time and understand there are no conspiracies here. If there were you would have to concede those you cite (Olin and Khatib etc.) are hyper intelligent and able to fool the majority of the public in Lawrence and elsewhere into believing their "lies". What "amsterminds" muuuuhhhaaaa (hand wringing included with the laugh)

By George Diepenbrock — Lawrence Journal-World August 29, 2011

U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia Monday afternoon followed a recommendation from prosecutors and the defense attorney to declare Neighbors competent for trial after a second psychiatrist had recently evaluated Neighbors and disagreed with the 2009 findings of a Bureau of Prisons psychiatrist. In the new evaluation, Dr. John H. Wisner of Kansas University Hospital found that Neighbors did not suffer from a mental disease or defect and that he could both understand the charges against him and assist in his defense.

Four evaluations were done. The facts are that there has been four mental evaluations on Guy Neighbors. The first one found him competent and as did the fourth evaluation. Both of those evaluations were done by KU and/or the MED center. The ones that found GN incompetent were by the federal evaluators. Here's a link to many of the transcripts for you to verify your information if you are unable to locate it on your own.

Obviously this was not knowingly selling a stolen bike here or a stolen toaster there. They had an extremely large operation going here, which directly contributed to an enormous amount of theft and burglaries in our town.

Pace, you are correct, I think millons being spent for surveillance will only be the starting point of ordeal. Its going to get good.

At what point does the tax payer get to see the bill for Owen's and the feds pique and hate. The case stinks, the sentences stink, the witness's stink. but the millions spent on surveillances and the level of prosecution really stink. We get it, if you don't cop a plea in this town, you will be persecuted beyond reason, hang the cost. It isn't like there are burglaries, thefts, murders, assaults and rapes out there to be solved.
