WRONGFUL CONVICTION AND IMPRISONMENT IN ALABAMA





ROBBERY OF FREEDOM: The Ultimate Injustice





One human being is too many when it comes to unlawfully, wrongfully having their





freedom taken away from them and their rights denied. I received a most bizarre false accusation,





wrongful conviction, and illegal imprisonment. I was the victim of malicious prosecution


and conspiracy to maliciously prosecute. The corrupt individuals have gone so far as to


literally sentence me THREE times for the same bogus lie. Is there such a





violation as \'TRIPLE JEOPARDY\'?! My rights were severely and visciously





denied, and I have been failed miserably by the system. I am becoming more and more aware that this type of corruption is not so rare as I once thought. The criminal obstruction of justice toward me is





described in my horror story below.





Thank you.





Sincerely,





Beverly Brabham


My story is told to you as honestly and as accurately as can be. Over the years, I have felt like I\'ve had to \'defend\' something, but I have realized that, as bizarre as it is, just tell the truth and let that be it! I was released in April 10,2001, and my quest for justice has only gained momentum.

I am the victim of small town politics where the locals have met very little resistance in doing things their own way, regardless of the law. In fact, I am the first one who has ever been known to challenge that state court of Bullock County, Alabama (City of Union Springs) for their misconduct and gross miscarriage of justice.

I feel that I must preface my story with events that led up to the conspired, bogus lie, and malicious accusation against me.

My accuser, John Will Waters, whom I was never allowed to face in court, is a king pin drug lord. He operates out of that small town, but reaches as far as Colombia, South America. My parents grew up in that same town. Waters was from a long line of moonshiners and crooks. He is very liberal and seems to think money will do anything. He and my parents have always been on the opposite side of issues, i.e., they opposed the building of a state prison there, Waters was for it. They are Republicans, he\'s a Democrat.

My father started, owned and operated a tire business there for 45 years. During the latter years, he depended strictly on out of town business, because the locals prevented county vehicles, school vehicles, and any other county business to be done there. Nevertheless, the business did very well. In 1993, my father had double knee replacement surgery. The business fell behind a few payments on a mortgage loan from a local bank. My father had done business with that bank since 1951. After very few months, the bank began foreclosure proceedings. My father immediately sold a large inventory of tires, raised $10,000. He offered the bank the $10,000 to pay the arrearage plus a few payments in advance to show good faith. Every possible attempt was made to satisfy the bank, but everything was turned down except the $50,000 required to pay the loan off in full. My parents were able to raise the $50,000.

The day before the scheduled foreclosure, my parents went to the bank to settle the debt. They were met by the President with a cool reception. He said he could not take it. He told them to go home that he would call them. He met with the foreclosure attorney, who was also a Board member of the bank (conflict of interest). They both conspired to refuse the money and did refuse the money.

The next morning, February, 1995 the foreclosure was staged on the steps of the courthouse. As people gathered, so did my parents, brothers, and I. My parents voiced loudly to the attorney, Rutland, that they had the money. They were totally ignored. A friend offered to pay it for them since he wouldn\'t take their money, and that was refused. He opened the bid at $85,000. No one can benefit from the sale at a foreclosure and he was opening at $35,000 above the amount owed! My parents bid $85,500. They countered after each bid, but were totally ignored. The attorney yelled sold, and
