“Essentially, what we did was we viewed it as we would any other case,” said Duluth Assistant City Attorney Cary Schmies, who prosecuted the case. “We felt with the high test levels, the gross misdemeanor conviction was most appropriate. Oftentimes, people who have lower test levels or have other reasons for test refusal, we’d offer a misdemeanor. In this case, the test levels were so high that wasn’t an option. … But justice is supposed to be blind. “I couldn’t see making him the poster boy for DWI when we wouldn’t do the same to anybody else under similar circumstances.” Carlton County attorney pleads guilty to DWI – Thom Pertler gets one-year stayed sentence, probation for London Road traffic stop.

Use Of Term "Trained Observer" And Video Of Attorney Describing Third Degree Felony Assault Force Duluth Attorney & Special Prosecutor Shawn Reed To Invoke His Right To Remain Silent? Is It Because Any Further Comment Could And Would Be Used Against Him In A Court Of Law?

“If you hit 'em and you cut 'em and they get stitches, that's substantial bodily harm.” THIRD DEGREE ASSAULT 609.223 MN - Uploaded on Feb 1, 2012, Criminal Defense Attorney Ryan Pacyga explains what a 3rd Degree Assault is in Minnesota. He also explains what "substantial bodily harm" means, and what defenses are available to help you get a NOT GUILTY verdict. by Ryan Pacyga, Website:

In JOUPPI's report he claims that he obtained a video recording of the camera in the deotx facility and added it to evidence. We show no record of this piece of evidence being added to the system. ICR#: 12187930, page 15 of 15.

Inside, I was told by hospital staff the laceration on his forehead was indeed an old injury which they has patched up last week, gluing it to stop the bleeding. It appeared to them this time that it had opened back up again and due to the that fact, they would be stitching this time. ICR#: 12185014, page 3 of 3.

... knowingly acting in excess of the law; intentionally injuring and unlawfully injuring another; making an official report knowing it is false; shall be subject to criminal penalties (Minn. Stat. § 609.43). A. Employees shall not knowingly make false accusations of any person. Employees shall truthfully, completely and impartially report, testify and present evidence, including exculpatory evidence, in all matters of an official nature.

Did you know that cops, doctors and prosecutors are all trained observers? Shawn Reed, Duluth attorney & special prosecutor realized that he can't play dumb about the felony assault if he is a trained observer, can he?

If the trained observers (So-called Duluth cops) took Anthony Jackson to the hospital emergency room for stitches, then it gets harder for trained observer Reed (So-called prosecutor) to claim that felony substantial harm doesn't exist, right? The only way a trained observer would miss that would be intentional, right?
