Wisconsin Statute 968.26(2)(am) states, in part, “If a person who is not a district attorney complains to a judge that he or she has reason to believe that a crime has been committed within the judge's jurisdiction, the judge shall refer the complaint to the district attorney, …..” (Note - If a John Doe complaint alleges all the elements of a criminal offense, the judge must refer it to the district attorney for investigation.)
On October 19, 2010, Investigative Consultant Ira Robins traveled to Madison, Wisconsin and filed a Petition and Complaint for a John Doe Investigation. His Petition alleged that Department of Justice Personnel had committed various crimes in their prosecution of Laurie Bembenek, former Green Bay Detective John Maloney, and former Winnebago District Attorney Joe Paulus. Those alleged crimes included; conspiracy: withholding evidence; tampering with evidence; and the related cover-up of those crimes. The Preamble and Section 1 of Robins’ Petition are attached. (Exhibit 17-B-1). On October 21, 2010, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Richard G. Niess referred Robins’ Petition and Complaint to District Attorney Ismael R. Ozanne. (Exhibit 17-B-2).
Note – The recent attempted cover-up by former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle, Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen and the Department of Justice, concerning the illegal predatory activities of former Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz are glaring evidence of a Criminal Justice System that is out of control. On October 19, 2010 Robins also hand delivered a copy of his Petition and Complaint to Doyle, himself the former Attorney General, who apparently took absolutely no action. (Exhibit 17-B-3).
