In response to the demand letter to Kentucky Atty Massamore to get the
cult and the newspaper to retract the lies caused by his recent actions,
Atty John F. Padgett received in his Massachusetts office on August 4th
by fax, an amended motion to have Tom Padgett
charged with yet a new criminal action to be heard in court on Monday
August 8th.

The new accusation in the amended motion reads that Scientologist "Laura
Padgett called
the local Victim's Advocate Office in Madisonviile, and reported that
Tom Padgett
was 2 months behind in his child support payments.   Massamore, believes
constitutes a breach in an agreement, and
that the defendant should be sentenced up to
five (5) years in prison (without a jury trial by his
peers.)  The defense to this is simple:
1. The complaining witness Laura Padgett,
is an adherent to the Hubbard mental health
sect that requires her to "legally harass"
former members and critics.
2. The amended motion is not within the KRS rules of procedure, for
timely notice of service
and therefore will have to be re-filed.
3. Padgett keeps all his receipts and cancelled
checks as proof.
4. Padgett also has receipts of US Postal Service Certified Mail
"rejection" where Laura
Padgett refuses to receive envelopes from
her declared SP enemy ex-husband.  While this is standard  cult
"Disconnection" policy to
sever all forms communication, it also allows
her to [claim] she didn't get a check in the mail.

This new motion will fail.  But again it requires
expensive travel, lawyers fees, court costs, and
lost income to deal with.  Cult expert Steve Hassan articulated the
aforementioned behavior in a July 17th letter to the Cape Cod Times.
This letter and other highlights of
Laura Padgett's 8 year legal assault upon Tom
Padgett can be found at:

It is our firm belief, that since pro-scientologist prosecutor Massamore
lacks the integrity and
character needed to retract the cultic drivel in the newspaper from OSA
Operative Frank Ofman, he's now trying to make up a crime
to fit the story.  Where's the "ethics" in all of this?

Padgett, filed a counter amended motion to have Massamore removed as
in Laura Padgett's criminal action and for a
change of venue to dismiss the case altogether!

Scientology Ethics  (A.B.U.S.E.) link to:
The late Dr. Joly West, MD, and cult mind control expert, proclaimed
"children are at the greatest risk from Scientology!"

"Thank you for your very detailed letter regarding scientology.  We
haven't yet found a way to attack these jackals who feed on children and
young adults who are too emotionally weak to stand by themselves when
they reach the age of consent."
     U.S. Congressman Leo J. Ryan, shortly
before being gunned downed by another
[totalitarian] cult in Jonestown, South America.

IN RE: 98-CR-067

Interesting fact:  The Victim's Advocate
Charles Weatherford, of who Laura Padgett
went to with a complaint of Tom on August 2nd,
shares an office with Atty Massamore.
Weatherford's and Massamore's names are
on the same letterhead stationary and share
the same telephone and fax numbers.  Are
we all seeing the picture here?   A rural town in in a southern state
where a small handful of elected politicos are covering up a major
behavioral problem by deflecting false accusations back to Tom.

Who's the victim here?
