Thanks for the research, because we (prisoners) are the "forgotten ones".
Nobody cares about our situations, once we get convicted. On that notion,
even prosecurors who were supposed to uphold the law, cease to be true
to the laws and Constitution they swore to uphold and protect. Especially
at the state level, prosecutors do not care because the law, which also
should keep them (prosecutors) accountable, is the same law which gives
them the power to be untouch-ables. The law sure is a two edged-sword,
and the powerful, the opulent and the court-witty gifted get to enjoy
the JUSTICE. But the poor, the indigent and less fortunate does not even
enjoy a real, tangible piece of this pie named JUSTICE, which the CONSTITU-
TION guaranteed each and every person under that great CONSTITUTION; becau-
se it has been stolen, and traded like a commedity on "Wall Street", and
everybody is running toward the money bag, sometimes including the (12)
jurors of "Our peers".
My story is a classic representation of that system of "Just-Ice" (Justice)
because it is ice cold for us, who are innocent, sometimes partly innocent.
this is my story and I want the wolrd to know it. All of it. This should
not be happening in the U.S. of A., but it has. For the patriotic, the
acitivist, the progressivist it is time to do something about it.
Human issues such as world hunger, poverty and injustice can touch the
bosom of compassion and the feeling of guilt etc., but none of it mean
anything until actions are taken. Even "Love" does not manifests until
two romantically touched in dividuals do prove it.
Thank You because the heart of God really did touch your heart, and this
not just a research, believe me it is an act of love. Research involves
"Science" , our situations is not only scientific, it is psychological,
it is spiritual. When you meet "Men" and "Women" at their wit's end, they
are beyond man's salvation. Only God can intervene in a supernatural way.
That is why prisoners turn to religion. They are searching for God cause
man has broken and re-arranged all we had left (our LIBERTY).

LA CROSSE COUNTY CASE NO.00-CF-106 doc #1
It was February 26, 2000. I was at my so called girlfriend's home,
it was Saturday and the weather was fair for that day, it was sunny.
Julie and I were supposed to go to the Mall of America in Minnesota.
It was a two hour drive from French Island near La Crosse Wisconsin.
We woke up late, and Julie was just winning how I never take her any
where. So we decided to drive to Minnesota.
I had recently upgraded Julie's computer and our argument centered
around this issue. But I knew that the basis of the argument was more
than the computer. Because I had already told Julie to call the manufac-
turer of the game, that her son Jimmy loves to play, it was some type
of animated learning CD, and the boy really love that tune, that came
along with the animated dinosaurs. So she started the argument with
the fact that Jimmy can't play his game no more, because I had trans-
ferred all the files to the new hard-drive and game was not functioning
perfectly. After she mentioned the game once more. I defended my posi-
tion and told Julie that: "all you have to do is call the manufacturer
of the game and get a driver for the sound and the game will be as
new", she agreed the first time I told her that.
This particular day, Julie had other things on her mind to tell me inclu-
ding how I never take her out. But we went out last weekend I thought.
Her neighbor and close friend came over after we yelled at each other
, Julie had called her. She served like a mediator, and it was already
past noon. After Roxie came over, it was like 2:00 P.M. and it look
like our trip to the Mall of America was cancelled. And from that point
on Julie started to drink, so I joined her and Roxie who did not drink
brought over some marijuana. Julie and I drank, and Roxie and I smoked
simultaneously for the whole day. Roxie had a perpetual connection
for pot, and Julie sent me to the store for more beer and this Swisher
sweet cigarette that Roxie liked. It was about 6:00 P.M. and I took
Julie's car, cause mine was not in good shape. I bought a case of beer.
At about some minutes before Eleven O'clock I returned to the computer
to try figuring out a way to get around ordering the disk from the
game manufacturer, and re-configured the game driver, so Jimmy could
play when he returned from his visitation with his father.
It was no more than a quarter of an hour later I returned to the kitchen
table where the three of us were drinking and smoking. After a while
I became extremely paranoid, and afraid even of the girls who I was
drinking with, so I left the house. I vaguely remembered that it was
sleeting. I remembered running down the street and it was cold and
the headlights were in my eyes like a big blur, "what was happening
to me?" I thought. It felt like an eternity, and this darkness; what
is this? Then I found myself hiding behind buildings and parked cars.
"What is it I am afraid of?" Finally I was at the convenient store,
and I look up there was Kevin, Kevin wore these big thick glasses,
I saw his name on the name tag he was wearing, and it seems like I
know this guy. Kevin looked me up and down and he looks like he was
terrified, no, he was not terrified he was surprised to see me the way
I was, the way I look. For a moment I could see myself and I was supri-
sed to see myself that way. I had mud all over my pants and hands,
like I've been swimming in mud. Did I miss this part of swimming in
the mud? I did. I asked Kevin: "What's wrong with me Kevin?" Kevin
was dumbfounded by this question. We were both confounded by that parade.
NOT ACQUITTED (Continued)
Kevin was bewildered because he couldn't understand why I was asking
him questions about me. And I was confused because I did not know how
I got that way. In addition it was bizarre to ask another questions
about what happened to me. Why was I asking him questions? Was it becau-
se I did not know? Yes I needed answers!
Shortly after the display in the store where the attendant was clueless
of my questions. And in the presence of patrons who braced themselves
not to laugh at me and my foolishness. I started to loose conciousness
completely, and I started to run again, I thought.
(In the police report)(there were two police reports by two officers)
It was now about 12:00 A.M. I found myself in the middle of someone's
living-room, I saw the photos, I saw the frame of the home, I saw a
simple couch, unlike Julie's home. Why am I in here and How did I get
in here? In the police report it was said that I used the bathroom,
flushed the toilet and closed the bathroom door so loud that it woke
up Mr. Pfister, the homeowner.
(In the police report)(continued)
Furthermore, it was written that I further went downstairs to the base-
ment where I made so much commotion that Mr. Pfister had to come down
to figure out who was making that much noise and who was making that
It was also written that: Mr. Pfister had left the front door open
for his college kids who were in town for Easter vacation. Both of
Mr. Pfister's two kids went out to a party. And Mr. Pfister thought
that his kids were returning from the party, and possibly brought some
friends home, and that was the source of the commotion and Mr. Pfister
was going to scold them, assuming that the guest room was downstairs
and maybe one of the kids was getting the spare room ready for their
friends. When Mr. Pfister went downstairs his kids neither of them
were downstairs, instead he found a stranger (Me).
According to the police reports I was downstairs in Mr. Pfister's home
in the guest bedroom making all types of commotions, opening drawers
and closet and my shirt was off and on the bed and I was standing at
the base of the bed in the dark.
It was written that when Mr. Pfister entered the guest's room I was
standing at the base of the bed, and he confronted me and I "plunged"
at Mr. Pfister, and a struggle ensued and we wrestled, (in Pfister's
testimony at trial), we wrestled from the bedroom to the bar area
and finally Pfister continued saying that I was choking him, while I straddled
him and Pfister continued saying that I was choking him to the point
of death, if his wife Peggy did not intervene to help him, where Peggy
struck me with a totem pole and wine bottle, and before she did this
she called the cops.
The police arrived about 12:05 A.M., and they both notice I was
laying in a pool of blood, Officer Fisher said he notice I had two
large lacerations in the back of my head. One of the officers called
Tri-State ambulance service and I was transported to St. Francis hospi-
NOT ACQUITTED (Continued)
Everything in the police report were not my account of what I remembered
happened, and what I remembered seeing.
In the police report also that I was in the hospital for close to three
hours, blood sample was draw from me at 2:45 P.M. And stapples were
applied to the lacerations, and I was taken to Cat-Scan for my head.
Most of the events and activities in the police reports I do no remember
What I remembered was what I testified to at trial:
The questions at trial were tricky, but I testified to things I remember
seeing. But I don't remember how I got in the house. I don't remember
being in the bathroom; I don't remember how I got in the basement, I
don't remember fighting Mr. Pfister. I don't remember event being in
the guest bedroom
(Before trial) I ASKED MY ATTORNEYS FOR PSYCHIATRIST FOR THE DEFENSE
I knew that I could not remember what happened cause I blacked out.
But there was a problem with the whole thing, because a person in a
blackout is not supposed to remember anything (so everybody thought).
But because of the confusion I've experienced, I requested a psychia-
trist, to help me with my defense.
The first attorney who handled the case told me that I did not need
a psychiatrist, so I was weary of this and I trusted Michael J. Colgan
before. But this defense he was going to present to the jury.
The second attorney who next handled my case did not discuss the trial
strategies with me, and he promised me that he would bring forth the
witnesses I asked him to call, including Kevin (the Kiwk-Trip) attendant
who happened to be Kevin Larson, according to the witnesses notes of
the judge (Judge Michael J. Mulroy); but Russel Hanson, my second attor-
ney did not do what he promised me. He did not bring "Kevin Larson"
to testify he did not bringn a psychiatric expert to testify and explain
to the jury why I acted the way I did, and what possibly cause these acts.
At trial I had a "all white jury", and my victim was a white family,
and of course I was the only black man in the whole court-room. I t was
hard for me not to think that I was discriminated against. I KNOW THAT
ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE NOT RACIST AND PREJUDICE! Because my daughter is
bi-racial, her mother is white. But the fact was (it was easier to port-
ray me as a monster), and I knew also that the jury was stacked against
me. And I did not have money to hire an attorney. The state appointed
attorney definitely did not help my criminal case. In fact I believe
he helped railroaded me.
CONTINUE TO READ AND YOU'LL DISCOVER THAT SOMETHINGS
WENT TERRIBLY WRONG AND NO-ONE IN THE SYSTEM IS WILLING TO HELP ME !
I was charged with 1) Attempted Intentional Homicide; 2) Burglary; 3)
NOT ACQUITTED (Continued)
I was convicted of all the charges an I was sentenced to 60 years of prison
confinement, under Wisconsin's new "Truth in Sentencing Law". Judge Michael
J. Mulroy said to me at sentencing: "Mr. Maxy I am sentencing you to the
extent that you will spend the rest of your life in the Wisconsin Prison
System." I was shocked to hear the judge said that.
I was looking for answers about how and why I entered this man's home and
this is what I found "Life In Prison?" I was not only the only black person
in the court room. I was also the only witness who testified on my behalf.
There was a warning flag when my state appointed attorney refused me witnes-
ses to represent me at trial, and he lied about it. Telling me "I can't
find the witness Kevin Larson". And provide the psychiatric assistance needed in
3 years incarcerated.
In 2003, I filed a "pro-se" post-conviction motion that's when the deep
hidden secrets of the judge (Mulroy) and the District Attorney, now a judge
(Scott L. Horne) and My attorney and (family commissioner in a nearby county)
(Russell Hanson), in addition to that Scott L. Horne was President of the
Wisconsin's District Attorney Association). Just finding out who they were
is not the secret, what they did is what they want to keep secret, and
they have had help. Because they are GIANTS in the Wisconsin judicial system,
and will pull all strings to keep their little secrets more secretive. the
Wisconsin courts will not reverse my case because if they do, they will
embarrass the judicial GIANTS, and the whole house will crumble down. And
the Wisconsin Supreme Court's Board of Attorneys and Professional will not
do nothing either, (see Milwaukee Magazine' article in 2004 on the Board).
Because the lawyers and judges fund this committee of lawyers and judges.
Nevertheless, I filed a 974.06 (Post-Conviction Motion) in the trial court
with judge (Mulroy) presiding; in the motion I raised a constitutional claim
for the (State's obligation to provide psychiatric assistance for indigent
defendants like me). (See Ake v. Oklahoma), among other issues I raised.
judge Mulroy denied the claim. In his opinion he wrote, Mulroy said that
I was not eligible for relief, that was the extent of his opinion, he quoted
no precedent to support his decision, (he made a law, although he is not
a lawmaker). And the Wisconsin Court of Appeals affirmed the decision by Mulroy.
The Wisconsin Supreme court did not even consider looking at the review
of the claims. The United States District Court, Judge Barbara C. Crabb
presiding could not give me relief, but she concluded that I was acting
bizarre on the record before the crime.
Anyone who is familiar with the law knows that the State is obligated to
appoint a psychiatrist for an indigent defendant like me, when the defen-
dant' state of mind is at issue. the United States Supreme Court had ruled
that in Ake v. Oklahoma, but because of the judicial GIANTS involved in
Wisconsin and me going pro-se against them, everybody shut their eyes to
the injustice done to me, and I am stuck in prison, it has been ten years.
But in 2009, after I found a study on alcohol an dmarijuana blackout by
Dr. Aaron White of Duke University for the National Institute of Alcohol
and Alcohol Abuse. The paper on blackout explained clearly that what happened
to me on February, 26-27, 2000 was blackout (fragmentary blackout) which
none knew existed; also in that same paper I found out also that black
occured at the minimum number of drinks and blackouts are more common among
social drinkers these were not known to the medical and scientific field
of psyhiatry, at the tim eof my conviction, which makes these facts New Evidence.
NOT ACQUITTED (Continued)
9 years of incarceration
After I discovered these new facts in the new study by Aaron White, I filed
another 974.06 Motion (Post-Conviction) in 2009. That's when I found out
that the District Attorney had lied, at the time of the filing of my first
974.06 Motion in 2003. I was vigorously pursuing the reason why the Presi-
dent of the Wisconsin District Attorney would lie to uphold a conviction.
When the answer to this puzzled question came to me, the knowledge of it
was getting clearer and the cause of it was getting larger as more entities
in the State of Wisconsin appeared to be involved in the injustices, either
voluntarily or involuntarily.
Here Is The Scoop On The Whole Thing.
The psychiatrist appointment was the duty of either of these two "Offices",
according to Wisconsin Statutes, (see Wis Stats., 977.05 (4r); and 885.08).
In these two statutes, there is a conflict as to who should pay the fees
for experts appointed to represent indigent defendants. Regardless of the
overlapping of the statutes, one of those two agencies should pay for the
mobilization fee for the psychiatric expert in my case. Attorney Michael
J. Colgan had already told me that he could not afford to get me expert
witness without the approval of the public defender office.
§ 977.05 provides that: "The state public defender may not provide reimbur-
sement for expert services...unless the [attorney] received authorization
from the state public defender to retain...an expert."
But 888.08 provides also that: "The treasury of the county shall pay for
witnesses in criminal case." In sum, when Michael Colgan withdrew as my
trial attorney. The court appointed an other attorney to represent me
(Russell Hanson). Since Colgan already made it clear that the public defen-
der office will not authorize the appointment of expert witness, then the
county would be responsible for the appointment of expert witness. Then
the country treasury would have to pay for the expert's fee. So if the
appointed attorney wanted to he could arrange for the county not to pay
for the fees. And if he wanted a conviction in conspiracy to help the prose-
cution, he could also do the same thing, he could arrange to have the expert
witness suppressed. And that is exactly what the attorney did. In either
case both the prosecutor (the State) and the county treasury benefit from
that decision (killing two birds with one stone); and the indigent defendant
is the only looser, and may spend years behind bars as a result of this
obvious misconduct by the attorney. And the reward for the malfeasance
of the attorney will be winning on future cases. That is exactly what I feared
have happened. Unfortunately in my case, it is a little too late in the
midnight hour in terms of remedies. Because the consequential remedy for
this type of misconduct is monetary damage for the years spent in prison
and for the injury suffered by the indigent defendant (me).
IT TAKES REAL POWER TO STRIKE JUDICIAL GIANTS
All the courts in Wisconsin know that to grant me relief is not beneficial
to the State of Wisconsin, and the state is going thru financial trouble.
To grant relief to an indigent, alien citizen is judicial suicide and humi-
liation for the Wisconsin judicial GIANTS; and that's not an option. The
lesser of the two evils in their eyes is to keep me in prison regardless
how much evidence I have. As long as I proceed "Pro-Se", I will loose,
this I know by experience. So I need a criminal attorney who is not afraid
of the GIANTS.
HELP DAVID AGAINST GOLIATHS; KITTY VERSUS LIONS
My name is Childeric Maxy, I am 45 years old. I've been incarcerated for 10 years now
I was arrested on an incident, where I entered a house thru the front door. I was intoxica-
ted on alcohol, I smoked some marijuana too. I took some pills for a headache shortly
before I left the home of Julie (a girlfriend at the time) where I was before. Due to
the combination of alcohol and marijuan and of course ibuprofen; I blacked out, because
I did not remember the majority of the events. I don't even know how I got in the home that
I was accused of trying to burglarize.
I went to trial and was convicted of all the charges, and convicted to 60 years in prison
under the Wisconsin "Truth In Sentencing". The charges were: 1) Attempted Intentional
Homicide; 2) Burglary and 3)Bail jumping.
I entered the home in a blackout state, I don't remember how I got in the home. I
saw myself in the living room, and I saw photos, but I didn't know where I was or how
I got there. The homeowner confronted me; I don't remember fighting him, next thing I
know. I woke up in the hospital.
The charges extended to "Almost choking the homeowner to death", and of burglary" even
though I did not have a gun, or knife or burglary tools. The police reports stated that
I asked the officers: "Where am I?" and "What happened?" and "What's going on?". Officer
Fischer's report said that "Childeric eyes were bloodshot red" and at trial Fischer said
"he was incoherent to time and place". Officer Yang wrote: "He was dazed" and was "asking
'where am I?'". Plus Mr. Pfister testified that I was making a lot of commotion in the
home, and that I used the bathroom, and flushed it and closed the bathroom door so loud
that it woke him out of sleep. And he heard commotion downstairs from his bedroom upstairs.
the commotion was so loud that Mr. Pfister was forced to go check it out.
So a burglary charge, even an attempted homicide charge was inappropriate; because I was
experiencing a blackout, and when I discovered the research by Aaron White Ph.D. from
the National Institute on Alcohol and Alcohol Abuse, and Dr. Donald Sweeny, and inter-
nal medicine doctor. That's when I knew what happened to me on that February night. It
was obvious that I didn't know where I was and did not know where I was. Even United States
District Court Judge Barbara C. Crabb concluded in her opinion that I was acting bizarre.
The jury did not believe me because there were no expert psychiatrist to help my defense
and even my attorney knew this because he intentionally did not provide the expert witness
needed for the defense. So he can get a conviction, it was an intentional act on his part.
I was found guilty and the judge at sentencing said to me: "I am placing you in the Wis-
consin prison system until you did". For what? I did not kill anyone, and the incident
or the so called "fight" could have happened in a tavern, and the real problem is with
"Intentional Homicide", if I blacked out it would not have been "intentional". For the
judge to say that: "You will spend the rest of you life in prison" is outrageous. There
are people in this prison system who killed people who will not spend the rest of their
lives in prison. In addition this is my first felony, I barely have a criminal record.
I was 35 years old when that judge sentenced me to 60 years of prison confinement. My entire
criminal record consisted of two misdemeanors where I had spent 8 months in jail for with
work release privileges.
Before trial I asked my attorney for the assistance of a psychiatrist, that request was
denied. Why? because my attorney Russel Hanson knew quite well that not calling the expert
psychiatrist and the last person who saw me in my state of confusion in the store was
fatal to my defense; but he did it anyway, and in the process fulfilled the prosecutor's
wish to convict me without adversarial defense. Hanson had to cut a deal with the district
attorney for future winnings, this how the judicial system works, especially in Wisconsin.
HELP DAVID AGAINST GOLIATHS; KITTY VERSUS LIONS (Continued)
What confirmed my long help suspicions are:
1) My attorney Russel Hanson told me that he could not find the witness (Kevin Larson)
at trial. Three years later, when I received the transcripts from my appellate attorney,
(Kevin Larson's) name was found in the copy of the Judge's notes that: "Kevin Larosn was
to testify in the P.M. hours" of the trial. WOW!
2) Also three years later the prosecutor Scott L. Horne lied on the record, in a Habeas
Corpus procedure to uphold the same conviction, which Russell Hanson helped Scott Horne
get. Because I trusted my attorney and because I trusted the system. I did not think that
Russell Hanson and (now) Honorable Scott L. Horne would lie to me or to the courts.
I filed a complaint with the Board of Attorney and Professional about Hanson. They did
not even complete the investigation. The investigation was incomplete. Then later I found
out that Hanson was a member of the Board of Attorney and Professional. Hanson was not
HELP ME GET JUSTICE FROM THIS CORRUPTED JUDICIAL SYSTEM
Also because of this conviction full of misconducts, Immigration and Naturalization Service
gave me my deportation orders for this crime. Here's the take on Immigration (INS).
INS will not deport someone except for "Crime of Moral Turpitude". Moral turpitude is
symbiotic with "Intentional Crime" which is what the State convicted me of this Perju-
rious conviction. Thus if INS knew that this conviction is perjurious, or if it is proven
that this crime is not intentional, in fact this crime is not intentional, because it
is proven in the record of the case that I was acting bizarre, and the new evidence of
fragmentary blackout is a potential constitutional claim (see Ake v. Oklahoma). And the
old request for a psychiatrist is revived again that: "An indigent defendant is entitled
to an expert psychiatrist at the state's expense if his state of mind is at issue".
I do not have money for legal representation. All of the above statements are true and
throughout my 10 years of incarceration, I learned and researched the law to try and
litigate what my state appointed attorneys did not or would not do. While I discovered
a lot of misconducts and malfeasances contrary to the law that these attorneys and judges
took on oath to uphold and protect. I also came to the realization that these GIANTS are
too powerful for me to fight on my own, because their friends and the guardians of their
beloved careers are committed to suppress every motion and any litigation with my name
on it will be denied, despite the potential constitutional claims raised on them.
My fight against these judicial GIANTS is like David and Goliats; and a Kitty-Cat against
lions. Everytime I brought an issue of constitutional importance, it is knocked down by
the Wisconsin courts, they and the attorneys I am fighting are of one mind, one judicial
community. I also realize that only fire could fight fire. So I need professional legal
help, in order to bring my case to the courts; if I am to find relief. I have no funds.
I also need the assistance of a knowledgeable psychiatrist who can look at my case objecti-
vely and give an accurate report and an affidavit to the education of the courts on this
issue of "alcohol and marijuana induced amnesia".
So I appeal to you friends in the world Wide Web to help me achieve this humanitarian,
merciful quest for real justice. And also to expose the dark secrets of the judicial commu-
nity, so urgent is the exposure of these elected officials in Wisconsin. I represent their
transgressions. They were the author of my worst nightmare. I am their judicial crucifixion.

My constitutional rights were not protected and I can't fight those powerful people by
myself. I need help. Will you help me in anyway you can to bring about "Truth In Justice?"
Anything you can do. Just telling another person about it and to lead them to log unto
this website to see for themselves. Even to tell a powerful person whom you have have access
to. Words of mouth can help me. You may ask what can I do? Do you know a psychiatrist
or a psychologist? Do you know a lawyer? Or a law professor? Let them see this! And then
best of all can you copy this blog? And can you let some activists know about this? Or
about this one can you take time to write a letter? Advise someone to read this "Blog".

Case No. la Crosse 00-CF-106; C.A.2009AP2949
Dear Investigative Reporter,
I have a story that is currently unfolding, I is a story that is truth. A
number of lawyers and judges are involved in the Wisconsin Judicial System.
Please bare with me, you will like the end of this story.
I was arrested in La Crosse WI on Feb. 27, 2000, I was laying in a pool of
my own blood and I got arrested. The headline in the La Crosse Tribune read:
"BLOODY BREAK-IN IN FRENCH ISLAND", that was my story, then.
I was transported to the hospital due to my "unconsciousness" and large lace-
rations on the back of my head--I woke up in the hospital, asking "what happe-
ned?" that night, because I blacked-out, from drinking alcohol and smoking
Marijuana. I understand a crime was committed, and I was involved in it.
But due to the procedures that I went thru, I don't and dno-one want to go
thru this again. I was in a alcohol blackout, and I have no idea what happened
I don't remember clearly "nothing that happened" that night. Some were blurry
to me, some were like I was in total darkness.
The judicial system in that county was not very friendly to me, because of
the crime (it could have been election year too), I do not know. But he messa-
ge was clear. The judge when he sentenced me told me: "Mr. Maxy I am placing
you in the Wisconsin prison system until you die", I did not kill anyone,
this is my first felony! Anyway, I had a public defender appointed for me.
He was doing things, and he suddenly withdraw, his name Michael Colgan. Then
another attorney was appointed for me, his name was Russell Hanson; What
I did not know was Hanson was a court commissioner (judge), in another county
Hanson was also a member of the Board of Attorney and Professional in Wiscon-
sin. He definitely did not help me in my defense ( I really thought he was
working with the Prosecutor (Scott L. Horne, now Judge in La Crosse), Horne
also was the "President of the D.A. Association in Wisconsin". The judge
who presided at my trial was Michael J. Mulroy (Ex-Distric Attorney), possibly
Horne's teacher, but they worked together in the D.A.'s office.
I had some problem with finding a document that I was looking for because
I only had (copy of the very first page only). It is not like me to throw-
away important document. I asked every attorneys involved in the case, includ-
ding the prosecutor, Mr. Horne. No-one answered my letters. I became really
suspicious that something was going on. At the time I did not know that these
individuals were involved in these powerful associations and Judicial "Clubs".
So I wrote to the La Crosse Public Defender Office, hoping that I would get
the document. That First Public Defender was Elliot M. Levine (now judge
in LaCrisse too). Levine sent a copy of my letter to Hanson and wrote Hanson
also, Hanson did not respond.
When I filed my first 974.06 (Motion), I was going to call in a subpoena:
Colgan, Hanson, Levine and Deniss Schertz (my appellate attorney), to get
to the bottom of why I did not get the full copy of the document, and why
was this document so vital and important to these Judicial giants?". Through-
out my trial, appeals, post-conviction, I was also asking the attorneys and
the Public Defender Offices, both La Crosse and Madison for a psyhiatrist
to help investigate and assist me and my defense of "Intoxication", eventually
that would help me explain to the jury "why I could not "REMEMBER" the events
that night, but no-one wanted to help me in that direction. Colgan mentioned
something about the P.D. having no "Funding", then He withdrew as my attorney.
When Hanson took over as my attorney, he promised that he would defend me.
What he did was entirely contrary to what he was hired to do.
But Hanson disappointed me. Remember now, I had no felonies, no substantial
criminal record, I had two "attempted batter" as my whole criminal record
at the age of 35.
When I filed my (Newly Discovered Evidence) in October 2009. The judge who
presided over the motion was (Elliott M. Levine) the guy who was arbitrating
betwen me and my attorney Hanson, he shouldn't have entertained the motion,
because the conflict of interest. He denied the motion even though, I had
potential claims in the motion. He also denied the claims because I also
have a potential claim against the Public Defender Office in La Crosse, remem-
ber he use to head that office.
So I write this letter to you the Press to assist me, at least get the story
out. The press have a responsibility to let the people know the iniquities
of the people the constituency elect into office, especially if they lie
or commit perjury. And the above named individuals in the judicial system
are using the same system that was made to abide by the Wisconsin and the
United States Constitutions.
I also I am not a criminal by trade, this incident which leads to my firts felony
was an accident that happened, because I blacked-out on alcohol. I am also an immigrant
from Haiti, I had a child by a white woman, and the prosecutor went as far as to the
mother of my child. My child's mother is Susan V. Walz, (a teacher) and convinced
her and lied to her. He even tried to get her to testify against me at trial, (she
was not a witness) in the incident. He told her that I would be going to prison for
a long time, and I would not be part of the child's life, (the
child was born while I was in jail for this offense). The child
is nine years old now; I saw her when she was a newborn, cause
Susan brought her to see me in the county jail, at that time,
Susan told me what Scott Horne said. Now he is judge, elected by the
people of La Crosse. In addition I discovered that he lied on the record
about me and involved other law enforcement officers in it (the Sheriff Dpt.)

Because Susan was married, when the paternity determination was done the family
commissioner at the time Roger Le grand gave me physical placement. Yet,
because of what Horne said about me She was convinced that I am a core crimi-

new commissioner (Gloria Doyle denied the motion, I tried reconsideration,
she denied that too. But when I write Ramona Gonzales, the real reason came
out. Gloria Doyle, the family commissioner made some racist comment about
me and the child, and mentioned my "crime" as the real reason why she denied
me physical placement with my child, She said: "...the child is biracial...
Mr. Walz was not the father...I was the guardian ad litem...and the crime
he committed was heinous..." Judge Gonzales said she was satisfied with the
report that commissioner Doyle wrote. They are keeping me from my only child

Even the clerk of the court in the county hate me. Only because of the crime,
If I write the clerk or the police they would not even answer my letters.
They files my motions because by law they have to do it. I have been black

and attorneys are too deep in the numerous constitutional violations against
I truly need the Press to get this dark story out of the world. I have been
suppressed for 10 years now, and even in prison the judicial powers are over-

to me I've never received. I need the Media's help to help me investigate.
That is why I got this mail sent to you bya third party, otherwise you would

Back to the heart of the story. the problem with this whole cae is: EVERY
BODY IN THE JUDICIAL BODY IN LA CROSSE WANTS THE CONVICTION TO REMAIN. because
they did not believe me when I said " I don't remember what happened", every
one thought I was lying, and because the crime was a black on white crime,
I was a black man and who entered a white man's house (thru the front door
in a blackout) they all, including the jury believed that I was guilty. And
the jury was stacked against me, and convinced the jury that I was a monster.
Frotunately, the victim did testified that I entered thru the front door,
cause he left it open, he said I used the bathroom, flushed it. made so much
commotion that I woke him up out of slepe, and he found me standing in the
dark, in a room in the basement, that his wife kept meticulously clean, and
he turned on the light, I was standing there with no shirt on. I was not acting
The United States Court Judge Barbara Crabb (bless her hear), found
that "I was acting bizarre and did not sound as a burglar...he was acting
bizarre...U see why the petitioner belives that if it was not for a toxic
drug that he ingested he would not have committed this crime...Unfortunately
for petitioner I can't find out if he is innocent or guilty..." She couldn't
cound that in her federal court at the time, until House v. Bell, and she
wrote that opinion just about a month before the Bell case. And U.S. of
Appeals for the Seventh Circuit denied a successful petition because they
think that I was raising the same claim that I am "INNOCENT", statutorily.
The U.S. Court of Appeals recognized that I had "Newly Discovered Evidence",
bu the State of Wisconsin Court by Elliot M. Levine don't think I have newly
discovered evidence, Judge Levine was supposed to recuse himself from the
case, because he was a witness who was to be subponaed, he did not recuse
himself, instead he entertained the motion and purposely applied the wrong
standard to trick me, when I file a motion for reconsideration and corrected
him and showed him that he should have applied the correct standard set by
the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the court of appeals, he still denied the
motion. saying that I did not meet the third prong, he was wrong and I know
why he did it.
Judge Levine does not want to give me a new trial because:
1) Everybody in the county (Judicial Giants) will be upset at him, and
he will not be re-elected.
2) The other Judicial Giants I mentioned about are pressuring him, and
he ended up ruling on a case he was supposed to recuse himself from by the statue
3) He rule also on the motion to preserve the integrity of the Public
Defender Office in La Crosse, which he used to be the head of. Plus the
headline: "BLOODY BREAK-IN IN FRENCH ISLAND" had wide media attention and
if he rule on the motion "good or bad", he will get media attention too,
in that area. ( and hoping that I don't catch his scheme".
The local media gave the case so much attention that they had and "after-
show" where they were offering to bring expert to sell alarm systems.
Now that I have "New Evidence from the NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON ALCOHOL AND
ALCOHOL ABUSE, at http://niaa.nih.gov, that is scientific evidence of black-
out, and witnesses at:MikeLeee.org, testimonies of common people (social
drinkers) who had the same experience as me, except they did not commit
a crime. I was acting bizarre, and woke the homeowner out of sleep, and did
all these things that I don't remember doing. I must have blacked-out. And
the attorneys and the Public defender Office denied me a psychiatris. Every
body believes that I was acting bizarre and could have blacked-out, except
the judicial system in La Crosse. PLEASE HELP ME PUBLISH THIS, PUT IT OUT
THE WORLD SO THEY COULD SEE THE POLITICS, RACISM, GRIDLOCK IN LA CROSSE.
December 13, 2009.
To whom It May Concern,
Feb. 26, 2000. I was arrested in a home after I blacked out and entered the
premises. I was brought to the hospital to treat my injuries I had to large
lacerations on the back of my head. I was unconscious, at the hospital I
was asking the hospital staff "Where am I?" I was later transported to the
police station where I was questioned.
I stayed in the country jail for six months, after that I got a trial and
was convicted of attempted Intentional Homicide. (I was charged with trying
to choke a man when I entered the home).
I knew the all white jury was stacked against me. I am a black man (immigrant)
with a bi-racial daughter. the "All White Jury" found me guilty, despite all
my appeals to the attorneys and the public defender that I "DONT REMEMBER
THE EVENTS" due to my blackout, and my "acting bizarre". I did asked for
a psychiatrist to help investigate the reason why I don't remember and to
guide the jury; that request was denied.
There were a few other things that raised a eyebrow: like the juror who knew
one of the state's witnesses who was her customer, and sidebar discussion
was held that I did not know anything about, plus that juror was picked to
be the alternate juror, I believe she was picked right after the incident
where she recognized the witness, but the problem with that was that she
did not tell the judge that until the trial was over with. I did not know
of these decisions at trial.
And the same witness contradicted her statement to the police on the stand
as to the amount of alcohol I drank that night, (my defense was intoxication)
so that was material to me. That witness statement also contradicted the
only other witness who I was drinking with, who testified that I was drinking
But the worst happened, after my conviction, I filed a post-conviction motion,
I was granted a hearing where I was supposed to call my witnesses, these
witnesses were: attorneys: Michael Colgan; Russel Hanson; Elliot M. Levine;
Dennis Schertz, and was trying to subpoena my witnesses. The prosecutor Scott
L. Horne, representing the State of Wisconsin said on the record:
"The State appears by Scott Horne. Mr. Maxy appears in person without counsel.
Judge we had goofed up in terms of communication with the Sheriff's Department
Mr. Maxy has filed another 974.06 Motion and was brought back because of
the hearing that had been scheduled"
This whole statement on the record was false, a perjury to hinder the defen-
dant from getting relief, and to forcibly squash the subpoenas, and in the
process Mr. Horne lied to the court; and lied about the defendant; he also
lied on law enforcement officers (the Sheriff's Dept.), he also lied on the
clerk of the circuit court.
because there was no other (974.06 Motion filed by the defendant) at that
time, and the Clerk of the Circuit Court will have no record filed by Mr.
Maxy; this is Mr. Maxy's first and only felony. He lied about a non-existent
"974.06 motion" he said I filed which was the reason I was transported to the
La Crosse County Jail, from GreenBay Correctional Institution (a
state prison in Wisconsin). He lied because he wanted to obstruct the court's
power to grant the subpoenas; he lied because he wanted to obstruct the evid-
entiary hearing that was guaranteed to me, because I had relief in order.
Now Scott L. Horne is still in the judicial system, he was elected judge Michael Muroy and Scott L. Horne knew what they both did, they just did not anticipate that the defendant (an immigrant) who they injured badly would find out. The judiciary powers were invested in these men and they abused those powers, due to their prejudices.
This case file is La Crosse county 00-CF-106; Court of Appeals 2009AP2949, and the defendant is Childerc Maxy, #332930, W.C.I., P.O. Box 351, Waupun WI, 53963-0351
Interestingly, there was another case that was alleged to be a case were perjury was also used. Case # 99-CF-1841, perhaps, coincidentally the same two appeared again, Miichal J. Mulroy was judge, and Scott L. Horne was D.A.. It was alleged that a witness by the name of Jane Kominski (a social worker at Cundersen Lutheran Clinic) it was alleged that she was told to lie when another man was facing some charges, he too was a black man by the name of Jessie Bennett. It was also alleged that she showed up at trial while the jury was benched and made the statement that she was told to lie, and she told them that she was not a racist person.
I would ask to investigate this case too, because they are similar in nature and qualifies as a hate crime, according to the Federal law.

(1) 19.41 Declaration of Policy. (1) it is declared that the high moral and ethical standards among the state public officials and the state employees are essential to the conduct of free government; that the legislature believes that a code of ethics for the guidance of state public officials and state employees will help them avoid conflicts between their personal interests and their public responsibilities, will improve standards of public service and will promote and strengthen the faith and confidence of the people of this state in their state public officials and state employees.
(2) it is the intent of the legislature that in its operations the board shall protect to the fullest extent possible the rights of individuals affected.
(3) 17.05 Removal of state officers ; impeachment; address. (1) Any civil officer of this state may be removed from office by impeachment for corrupt conduct in office, or crimes and misdemeanors as provide in Article VII, Section 1 of the constitution; and any supreme court justice or circuit court judge may also be moved from office by address of both houses of the legislature as provided in Article VII Section 13 of the consitution.
The Honorable Scott L. Horne cicuit court judge of La Crosse County, when he was District Attorney committed misconduct of perjury in a hearing against a pro-se litigant to uphold a conviction that he obtained. The lie extended to the point where Mr. Horne was ordered to write a "Writ of Habeas Corpus Ad Testificandum" to have the pro-se litigant transported to the La Crosse County Jail from Green Bay Correctional Institution for a hearing scheduled on Nov. 18, 2003. When the pro-se litigant (Childeric Maxy) a resident alient with limited English (broken English) arrived at the appointed hearing D.A. Scott L. Horne perjured himself saying:
"Judge, we goofed up in terms of communication with the Sheriff's Department. Mr. Maxy has filed another 974.06 motion and was brought back because of the hearing that has been scheduled..." R.105 of case No. 00-CF-106; Court of Appeals 2009AP2949-CR and 2010AP000323-CR; see also 2010AP998-W(Supp. Writ).
The reason why the District Attorney lied was because Mr. Maxy had a claim of "Denial of Psychiatric Expert" because of temporary amnesia induced by alcohol and marijuana he ingested before the commission of the crime. The claim was in page 20 of the only 974.06 motion which Mr. Maxy filed and for which Judge Michael J. Mulroy ordered a "Meckner[?] Hearing". Mr. Horne lied for the sake of the record (making it seen in the record that Maxy has filed another 974.06 motion in 2003. Judge Mulroy knew what D.A. Horne was doing, because Mulroy himself ordered the Writ to transport Maxy, and because Mulroy was the county's D.A. and Horne's boss at one time.
The psychiatric claim was never addressed, a claim which was a guaranteed reversal of Maxy's case. And Judge Mulroy helped D.A. Horne cover the misconduct, by not sanctioning the prosecutor for the misconduct.

ANOTHER DISTRICT ATTORNEY COMMITTED MISCONDUCT OF PERJURY TO KEEP A MAN IN PRISON AND UPHOLD A CONVICTION
A former D.A. Scott L. Horne and former President of the Wisconsin D.A. Association, and who is now a sitting judge in La Crosse County Wisconsin lied to keep a man in prison and maintain a conviction.
Childeric Maxy, an alien resident was convicted of Attempted Intentional Homicide (for almost choking another man in Feb. 2000 in La Crosse County Case No. 00-CF-106).
Maxy's defense was that he could not remember what happened due to his temporary amnesia, induced by alcohol and marijuana he ingested that night. Maxy was not given a psychiatrist by his attorney Russell Hanson and La Crosse First Public Defender Elliott M. Levine per Wisconsin Statutes ~ 885.10 and ch 977.
When Maxy brought the psychiatric issue on postconviction [highlighted:](which is a constitutional ground for an automatic reversal by the judge).[end] Scott L. Horne who was D.A., and President of the D.A. Association at the time, was ordered by the judge Michael J. Mulroy to write a Writ of Habeas Corpus Ad Prosequendum to have Maxy transported to the La Crosse County Jail for a Hearing set for Now. 18, 2003.
At the hearing Horne who knew that Maxy was not learned in the law took advantage of the situation lied to the judge saying: "Judge we goofed up in terms of communication with the Sheriff's Department. Mr. Maxy has filed another 974.06 motion and was brought back because of the hearing that had been scheduled..."
But the record of the Clerk of the Circuit Court will show no record of "Another 974.06 Motion". And because of this lie the hearing for Maxy was dismissed and set for another later date which Maxy could only be heard by phone, instead of in person (Habeas Corpus).
Maxy is still in prison. And Horne elected La Crosse County Circuit Court Judge. And, notably Judge Michael J. Mulroy was La Crosse county D.A., and closely working with Scott L. Horne for years. Judge Mulroy had to know that D.A. Horne lied, for Mulroy ordered Horne to write the Writ to bring Maxy to the county jail.
Maxy is still in prison and a psychiatrist was never given to Maxy despite the fact that U.S. District Court Judge Barbara C. Crabb in a Federal Habeas Petition Case NO.05-C-0479-Cm found Maxy Acting bizarre and a man who was intoxicated and a man who don't remember the events of his crime.
Maxy filed a Supervisory Writ hoping that the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court would address the misconduct on Case No. 2010AP998-W. The Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court both denied the Writ.

1. IS IT FAIR TO DENY A DEFENDANT PSYCHIATRIC TESTIMONY AFTER HE WAS FOUND ACTING BIZARRE?
This issue was raised in the briefs in the court of appeals and that court answered: YES.
2. DID PETITIONER BRING ENOUGH NEW EVIDENCE TO WARRANT A NEW TRIAL?
This court of appeals answered: NO.
CRITERIA FOR REVIEW
The issues present a real and significant question of federal and state constitutional law. This petition for review demonstrates a need for the supreme court to consider establishing a policy within its authority. In addition the court of appeals' decision is in conflict with controlling opinions of the United States Supreme Court or the supreme court or other court of appeals' decision. For these reasons, the criteria of Rule 809.62 (1)(a) and (1r)(b) and (d) are satisfied.

STATEMENT OF THE CASE
STATEMENT OF FACTS
On February 28, 200 Childeric Maxy was charged in a complaint with burglary, substantial battery, reckless endangerment, and felont bail jumping, these charges are the result of an incident where Maxy walked in a home through the front door while he was intoxicated. Maxy fought the homeowner after he was discovered in the basement in the dark . (R.3). Maxy was later charged in an information with one count of attempted first degree homicide, substituting the (reckless endangerment), adding other charges of: burglary and bail jumping. (R.8.). At his trial Maxy testified that he did not remember any of the events, and of fighting the homeowner. (R.31: 190-195). In his testimony Maxy also mentioned how he was drinking throughout the day (R.81:231), Julia Meyer testified of more drinking (R.81:35), contradicting each other the witnesses don't know how much Maxy drank. The jury convicted Maxy of all the charges. Maxy's attorney Coogan filed for additional crime lab. to find the reasons for Maxy's bizarre and erratic behaviors, and for his amnesia (R.17). On March 28, 2001 attorney Dennis Shertz still looking for Maxy's behaviors in the evidence wrote a stipulation for additional blood test to a laboratory in Pennsylvania (R.51). Attorney T. Olson had the blood tested for paxil (R.88-90). In sum all the attorneys were searching for answers for Maxy's amnesia and bizarre and erratic behavior. Finally Maxy himself put a motion to retain the blood sample for future testing (R.92). Maxy filed a postconviction motion per WIS STATS., 974.06, on page 20 of the motion (8.96), Maxy asked for an "evidentiary hearing", the prosecutor lied about the nature of the hearing, (R.105:2) (when Maxy found out in 2009 that the prosecutor committed perjury and contempt of court), Maxy filed a "Supervisory Writ", in the court of appeals and this court denied the Writ. Maxy was not given the evidentiary hearing.
* * *
STATEMENT OF THE CASE (continued)
Maxy filed this motion per WIS STATS., 974.06, bringing new evidence of alcohol blackout and marijuana induced blackout, and new evidence of en-bloc blackout and fragmentary blackout; and evidence of memory impairment after "just one or two drinks", Maxy also brought out the old evidence of requesting a psychiatrist (R.113-exht D), and evidence of his erratic and bizarre behavior (A-103) (R.113-exht D) (R.17; R.23; R.61; R.88-90). Maxy moved the court for an evidentiary hearing and appointment of counsel for mobilization of psychiatrist (R.114-115). The court denied the motions and treated the motions as a sentence modification. When Maxy filed for a motion for reconsideration and corrected the presiding court. The court denied the motion using the wrong legal standard. This court of appeals affirmed stating that: "The court properly denied the motion, even if it applied the wrong framework."
This is an appeal from the judgment of conviction entered on October 2, 2000 in the circuit court for La Crosse County, Michael Mulroy, Judge; and denial of postconviction motion dated October 27, 2009, and November 13, 2009, and January 28, 2010. The court of appeals affirmed the judgment and order. (A-101-102).
* * *
THE COURT OF APPEALS USED AN ERRONEUS APPLICATION OF LAWS
The court of appeals' decision relied on State v. Coogan, 154 Wis 2d 387, 394-395, 453 N.W. 2d 186 (Ct Appl. 1990).
The court's opinion stated:
"We conclude that this allegatin in Maxy's motion are insufficient to meet several of these factors... It is ordered that the order denying reconsideration are summarily affirmed under WIS STAT., Rule 809.21 (1)."
And: "Even if it [the court] analyzed it under the wrong legal framework."
But this is an erroneous application of Coogan itself. Coogan was dealing with a petitioner raising new evidence that was produced from a defendant at an hypnosis session; and which was the expert's opinion. In sum the court decided that the evidence that Coogan brought to the court was inadmissible.
MAXY PRESENTED ADMISSIBLE EVIDENCE
In contrast, to Coogan's new evidence, Maxy's new evidence was of psychiatric clinical study of alcohol and polysubstance induced blackout. (R.113-exht A). The study conducted by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
The study found that:
1) There are two types of alcohol and drug induced blackouts (which was not clear and established by the medical community). There are "en bloc" and "fragmentary blackouts; en blc blackout is when one remembers nothing.; And fragmentary blackout is when one remembers parts of the events, (which is what maxy said happened to him).
2) The study found also that: Alcohol and marijuana, each drug alone produces blackouts, (this was not known by the psychiatric community), the record showed that maxy ingested both drugs.
How could this Wisconsin court of appeals conclude that a man who was acting bizarrely (R.113-exht M), who said he does not remember the majority of the events (R.113-exht D), who asked for a psychiatrist before trial, because he doesn't remember events; How could the court conclude that the clear new evidence are not material to an issue of the case?
While Maxy's bizarre and erratic behavior was ongoing, Maxy entered a home through the front door, made enough noise to wake the homeowner out of bed (R.81).
Moreover, Maxy went downstairs to the guest room in the basement, not only did he make more noise in the dark, but the noise was so continuous, while opening drawers and closets, that the homeowner was compelled to investigate (R.81). Do these behaviors constitute a person whose state of mind was at issue? The U.S. District Court said yes (R.113-exht M).
MAXY DESERVES THE ASSISTANCE OF A PSYCHIATRIST FOR HIS DEFENSE
"An indigent defendant is constitutionally entitled to an examining physician at the state's expense when mental status is an issue." State v. Burdick, 166 Wis 2d 785, 480 N.W. 2d 526 (Ct. App. 1992); Ake v. Oklahoma, 470 U.S. 68 (1985).
The Wisconsin court of appeals opined that:
"Scientific evidence that marijuana use can cause blackouts is not new." That opinion by the court is wrong. Here is why. On page 4 of (8.113-exht A). A study on the combination of drugs was not done until the year 2002. Aaron White Ph.D. noted on page 4:
"In a subsequent study White and colleagues (2004) interviewed 50 undergraduate students, all of whom had experienced at least one blackout to gather more information about the factors related to blackout. As in the previous study, students reported engaging in a range of risky behaviors during blackouts. Including sexual activity with both acquaintances and strangers, vandalism, getting into arguments and fights, and others. During the night of their most recent blackout most students drank liquor alone or in combination with beer. Only 1 student out of 50 reported the most recent blackout after drinking beer alone... Similarly, the combination of alcohol and THC, the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana, produces greater impairments than either drug gives alone. (Ciccociopo et al 2002). Given that many college students use other drugs in combination with alcohol (O'Malley & Johnston 2002), some of the blackouts reported by students may arise from polysubstance use rather than from alcohol alone... White and colleagues (2004) observed that, among 50 undergraduate students with a history of blackouts, only 3 students reported using other drugs during the night of their most recent blackouts and [underlined]marijuana[end] was the drug in each case." Pg 4 of (R.113-exht A).
Even in this article it is proven that never before did anyone conclude that marijuana's THC was the cause of blackouts. The court of appeals was wrong and made an adverse decision in those remarks that: "alcohol and marijuana's THC causing blackouts is not now". Nowhere in this article is there a factual reference to any work or research done on THC for blackout. The court of appeals said no reference to the source of this "scientific data". So the court was wrong.
Every scientific study or clinical experiment on alcohol blackout by scholarly psychiatric professor is included in this article. Blackouts by alcohol, THC, diazepam (Valium), flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) and benzodiazepam are noted in this article. And the works and clinical researches, the credentials to the works are accredited to the respective scientists from 1935 to 2009. Nowhere does it mention the causing of blackouts before 2002.
Notice also that all the drugs that were known to cause blackouts: diazepam, flunitrazepam, benzodiazepam; excepting THC were in Maxy's Motion for Additional Crime Lab. analysis of Maxy's blood sample. (R.17). Although the court of appeals missed these facts on the record. Maxy will further demonstrate that the court of appeals' opinion was unreasonable and adverse to the laws of the land and that facts on this case.
The court of appeals was wrong also in asking these statements:
"Maxy filed a post conviction motion and appeal challenging his sentence. After that was unsuccessful, he filed a pro se motion WIS STATS., 974.06, claiming inter alia, that trial counsel provided ineffective assistance by failing to hire psychiatrics present testimony, that Maxy was intoxicated to the point that he could not form the requisite intent to commit the offenses, despite Maxy's explicit pretrial request for such an expert. The trial court deemed that motion to be procedurally barred, and this court affirmed.
This court of appeals made it seems as if the trial court of this court of appeals properly addressed the psychiatric issue. The court is wrong again. In fact the court is only partially right when it said that the trial court "deemed" the whole motion to be procedurally barred. This court of appeals did affirm. (A-101, pg 3 [?]3).
However, this court disagreed with the trial court on "being procedurally barred". This court of appeals wrote:
"The circuit court concluded Maxy's motion was barred by WIS STATS., 974.06(4) as interpreted by State v. Escalona-Naranjo, 185 WIS 2d 168, 517 N.W. 2d 157 (1994), because Maxy failed to show "sufficient reason" for not raising the issue in his original postconviction proceeding we disagree... Therefore we turn to the merits of the motion." (A-101).
But this court never gave Maxy an evidentiary hearing, like Maxy asked for. Although the court of appeals disagreed with the trial court, that Maxy was not barred from raising the motion. The court never remanded the case to the trial court for an evidentiary hearing (see In ro Davis U.S. 2009) (citations ommitted), on the psychiatric issue as commanded by Ake v. Oklahoma, 470 U.S. 5B (1985). And the psychiatric issue was buried. Instead, the court wrote that:
"Maxy also argues counsel should have obtained an expert witness to testify on the effects of the caffeine, Ibuprofen and other substances found in his blood. However he provides no basis to conclude such an expert would have testified in a manner that assisted Maxy's defense. Again this is insufficient allegation of prejudice."
Now Maxy brought evidence and the basis where an expert would "testify to his defense". The court will not give Maxy that expert as state in Ake, as the obligation of the state. Now Maxy still an indigent defendant gathered all he can on blackout or amnesia (which maxy claimed since before trial) (see R. 17; R. 113-exht D), and Maxy identified all the substances in his system and on the record, by testimonies of the witnesses of alcohol consumption, (R. 61), and bizarre behavior (R. 17; R.113-exht M), and Maxy made motion for an evidentiary hearing, the court response was this:
"The articles Maxy attached to his motion discuss the blackout effect of "large amounts" of alcohol, or a combinstion of alcohol and THC. Here, however the lab reports indicated that Maxy had no alcohol in his system, Meyer and Theisen testified that Maxy consumed alcohol in their presence and a low level of THC which was present in his blood. Therefore the articles are not material, and there is no reasonable probability that having an expert testify about them would have produced a different result at trial. Accordingly we conclude the trial court properly denied Maxy's motion for a new trial, even if it analyzed it under the wrong framework."
Outrageously, the court of appeals is wrong again, because Aaron White Ph.D. who is a better expert that this court of appeals is wrote:
On (R. 113-exht A, pg 1and2)
"Alcohol producing detectable memory impairments beginning after just one or two drinks. As the doses increases, so does the magnitude of the memory impairment. Under certain circumstances, alcohol can disrupt or block the ability to form memories for events that transpired while a person is intoxicated a type of impairment known as blackouts."
Here again Dr. White wrote about memory impairments starts at just one or two drinks (since everybody's physiognomy is different) and Dr. White wrote how the impairments progresses, as the drinker increases the doses. But the court of appeals opines that the article discuss only the blackout effect of large amounts of alcohol and conbination with THC, well Maxy consumed both drugs in the record.
Dr. White continues in his article:
"However beginning with just one or two drinks, subjects begin to show impairment in the ability to transfer information into long-term storage. Under some circumstances alcohol can impair this process so severaly that, once sober again, subjects are unable to recall critical elements of events, or entire events, that occurred while they were intoxicated. These impairments are known as blackout."
Aaron White Ph.D. also discusses the difference between en bloc and fragmentary blackouts on page 3 of the article.
"Unlike en bloc blackouts, fragmentary blackouts involve partial blocking of memory formation for events that occurred while the person was intoxicated Goodwin and colleages reported that subjects experiencing fragmentary blackouts often become aware that they are missing pieces of events only after being reminded that the events occurred. Interestingly, those reminders trigger at least some recall of initially missing information. Research suggests that fragmentary blackouts are far more common than those of the en bloc variety. (White et al 2004; Martzler and Fromme2003b; Goodwin et al 1969)."
As this court can see that the articles discuss about many stages of alcohol and polysubstance uses, of memory impairments, and of blackouts by small amount of alcohol and of large amounts. And of memory impairment and blackouts by other drugs beside alcohol and marijuana.
The article also discussed everything from impairment by one or two drinks to, en bloc blackout, and fragmentary blackout, to behavioral condition of a person in a blackout who can walk, talk, fight, have sex etc., and not remember the events.
"The newly discovered evidence showed that there had been a shift in mainstream medical opinion (psychiatric opinion) as to the cause of blackout/or alcohol induced amnesia or when a person can't remember."
Maxy has forever been trying to prove his blackout state, without psychiatric expert assistance to analyze Maxy's case, the best Maxy can do as an indigent defendant is to present the research and articles, when there is ample evidence on the record that his state of mind was at issue.
