Avoyelles Correction Center Transcription
This is MCI. This call originates from a Louisiana Correctional Facility and maybe recorded or monitored. I have a collect call from:
An inmate at Avoyelles Correctional Center. To accept dial, (beep). Your call is being connected. Thank you for using MCl.
Justin: Hold on. Hold on. Hey.
James: Hey. She's over there today.
Justin: Yes man. I'm calling her cell phone. I got her house phone number in my phone. She called me this morning.
James: Might be out of pocket.
Welcome to Centinenial wireless.
James: She aint there. She at that house.
Justin: Hey. She at the house.
James: That where she at.
James: See. All the motions she sending back to me now, Justin, got a stay been put in place. But now, no record, nobody done sent me no notice that a stay been filed. So I filed a writ of mandamus to the Third Circuit ordering Judge Booth to either recuse his self or forward this motion to be heard by (inaudible).
Justin: By who?
James: That mean another judge. A new or detached judge.
James: Know what I'm saying? He saying a stay been filed. But there's no, nobody sent me no notice saying a stay been filed.
James: And he refused to sign the orders.
Justin: Hold on a second.
James: But I want, we gonna knock Allen out on this next election.
Justin: He, man, let me tell you.
James: He gonna get throwed out because that place aint no resident.
Justin: He scared as he want'a be boy. And then Judge Booth gonna get the recusal too now.
James: Man, Judge Booth gonna go to jail, 'cause I want to personally charge a file against him. (inaudible)
Justin: Oh yeah.
James: That's what I want. John got that today. She want him out'a there too though.
Justin: Oh yeah, so she can be the top dog.
James: She can be that Chief Judge then.
Justin: Hold on just second. Yo.
Hello. This is Cathy. Sorry I cannot take your call. Please leave a message ...
James: Just hang it up.
Justin: (leaves this message on the answering machine- "Give me a call when you get this message. Give me a call on my cell when you get this message. Thank you. Little Bird. Little Bird.")
James: Say. What time you be out of church tonight?
James: What time you be out of church tonight?
Justin: Uh. Be back here by about ten.
James: What time she usually let you call her?
Justin: I call her anytime. Shit. She call me nine, ten o'clock at night.
James: Why don't you set it up for ten?
Justin: Ok. I'm gonna get her to call me. Man, let me tell you something podna. She rock'n and rollin.
James: I need to know what I need to do on him right now. Basically you got feeling on what I been doing. But he signing all of my motions that a stay in place but there's been no stay filed, I've received no notice of a stay.
Justin: Well, who filed a stay?
James: I don't know. He don't say. He didn't even sign the uh, first six motions I sent him. That what got me. He wouldn't even sign'em saying a, who, who, authorized the stay. See what I'm saying? But the recusal we got in court had nothin' to do with the issues I'm bringing up now. Now I'm bringing out that letter that Gene wrote saying that a favor had been asked and it was too big for him. See what I'm saying? I never put that letter on the table.
Justin: So, by you, by you, uh, I guess, familiar with the fact of what the last judge did, Judge Jordan, how he made his ruling. What grounds did he do that on? Do you know?
James: He say there was no, no motions pending, that was stilI open, that required Judge Booth to be recused on. Which I'd already give the Third Circuit all that. That was several motions that was still open that required Judge Booth to have be, to have to rule on, a he even signed one. He had even signed two that had to be heard. Plus, Judge Booth said he had signed 'em, the motions that I sent him by mistake. So therefore, Judge Booth intent was that the recusal go forward. Cathy Johnson said the same thing. Supreme Court bring a judge in because Judge Booth said, in the, on the stand, he signed the motions by mistake. He didn't see 'em. So, therefore, you intent was to refer the motion to Cathy Johnson to be heard.
Justin: Hold on a second. Yeah.
James: Well, like I say. The records clearly. And then I got the Supreme, I mean that order in there, showing 'em how Judge Booth committed perjury on that. I got what he said about he got Alzheimer's in there and everything. Plus, Thibodeaux is the Chief Judge down there now.
James: I also want to have ...
Justin: At the Third Circuit?
James: Yeah. I also want to ....
Justin: He's a black guy?
Justin: That's what Sam bragging 'bout.
James: Yeah. He straight.
Justin: He just say. If he can just get him a highway to the Third Circuit he on his way.
James: That what I'm saying. That's the man there. That's the one made 'em redo my transcripts over. See, I met him at Gene house.
Justin: Well, Sam say, oh man.
James: I need to find out something else from Cathy Johnson. I need to find out the relationship between Peters and ... I need to know the relationship between Peters and Judge Booth. Peters is out of Jena.
Justin: Well, what about the woman Judge Booth was gonna run against, Elizabeth?
James: She aint on there no more.
Justin: She not?
James: No. She aint on there no more. I want to know the relationship between Peters. They got a whole group up there now. But, Peters still up there now.
Justin: But, you know now, you know, Judge Booth sit in some time over in Jena.
James: You see, and I need to know that relationship. But see Peters serve on the Third Circuit.
James: Peters from Jena. I need to know whether or not I need to recuse Peters from hearing this Motion to Recuse Judge Booth.
James: I don't know the three judges that gonna sit on that.
Justin: But, Judge Booth set in Jena some times.
James: He do?
James: I didn't know that now.
Justin: I done been over there before. Yeah. He set in in Jena some time for' em.
James: Now see, I also want to ask Cathy, what did she ask me here about this August the 10th thing and what this, how did this pertain to me. Because I been told nothin' 'bout this and don't even know what it was about.
Justin: But, he think they planning on doing it without even bringing you into the courtroom?
James: Oh no. They can't do that. They can't do that. They aint gonna do that without bringing me down there. But if she heard it, evidently it's in the wind somewhere. And I want to know what it's pertaining to. Follow what I'm saying?
Justin: Let me try one more time. (Justin trying to connect three way call.) What that number was?
" (Justin trying to connect a three way call)
James: She aint there. She probably somewhere setting. But she probably gonna hit you back huh?
Justin: Oh yeah. Yeah.
James: Keep that cell on. Ask her too, do Poppa need to subpoena me?
James: Where he can get it done for Monday.
James: That gonna be Tuesday, right?
Justin: Uh, yeah. The first of August?
James: I think somewhere around Tuesday. But see can you set up something with her where I can talk to her at ten.
James: You know what I'm saying? I'm gonna call now. The phones here cut off a ten thirty.
James: So I'm gonna start calling you at ten. But see, can you line up where I can talk to her at ten.
James: And see can I run some stuff at her. But let her know 'bout Judge Booth put on all of my rulings abou the State.
Justin: Well, she'll be able to tell you whether or not he ...
James: And what she think. And actually what she think his motive is on this. Why's he doing this uh, putting this stay on there when there's no stay been filed by the State. And can he file a Stay with the Recusal pending against him?
Justin: Right. That's something, aint it?
James: See, I clearly stated 673, which say that Judge Booth cannot act once the, once the recusal been filed. You know I moved to remove the District Attorney's Office too?
Justin: You have?
James: Yeah. I got that motion filed.
Justin: Awe man, you, that what I told Poppa. He need that motion, same motion to be ...
James: I moved to recuse the District Attorney's Office because of John being involved with the deal with uh, with uh, John being implicated by Gene, saying that the Sheriff asked the D.A. in the jail for a favor.
James: Hell yeah. I move to recuse the District Attorney's Office. All that's been filed. And you can't deny, you can't deny this motion on the District Attorney unless a hearing is held.
Justin: Boy, I tell you what.
Justin: Gene aint gonna be able to make it Babe.
James: No. He aint gonna make it. He know he aint.
Justin: He aint gonna be able to make it.
James: I told you I told. Did I tell you that I told Derrick that Gene was with me when I went in them people's ballot?
Justin: Uh uh.
James: Yeah I told him that. I told him Gene was with me when I signed them peoples ballot. I want Gene brought into this picture.
Justin: But, Gene was with you when I picked up the ballots from the whites.
James: That's right. See what I'm saying? That's why I told Derrick he got to go question Gene. So, I don't know if he gonna go do it or not. But I told him. I told him, I say, Gene was with me man, when I went in these people ballots. Gene know I went in they ballots. But, now he don't want to bring Gene into the picture.
James: Shit. Gene don't even want to come to the courthouse.
Justin: Well, he better. He gonna do something.
