PLEASE HELP CELESTE BEARD JOHNSON
1. Does the Uniform Commerce Code support the Marital Trust signed July 30, 1998 over the alleged remuneration contract? July 30, 1998 was signed long before Tarlton met Celeste.
2. Were any of the young people mistaken - could water have been put in Steven's drinks rather than Everclear?
3. Does the autopsy show infracted areas caused by clots that occurred at an undetermined time other than the shooting?
4. Did a juror fail to standup to others when they felt Celeste was not guilty?
5.Celeste needs a new witness to process a new Habeas Corpus. Maybe someone heard Tarlton speak about what she wanted to do and knew it didn't include Celeste?
Tarlton has served her time for injury to an elderly person because that was the charge all along.
Tarlton shot Steven Beard with her shotgun. A Franchi 20-gauge semi-automatic shotgun with her name engraved on a plate permanently attached to the gun. We know the shell was loaded with #8 stainless steel pellets because many were removed in the autopsy. Tarlton shot into the fat part of the stomach, so she clearly intended to stop Steven and Celeste from making their European trip but did not intend to kill Steven or she would have aimed at a vital organ or used a bigger pellet. #8 is small and used to kill doves.
After the shooting Tarlton took her shotgun home and placed it back in her closet. The shotgun was picked up by the police the day of the shooting without a warrant in hand which caused Tarlton's attorney to fight the admission of it as evidence. It passed the ballistic test for the gun used in shooting Steven and Tarlton was arrested for injury to an elderly person. Two years later Tarlton involved Celeste in her crime, making a deal for twenty years in prison.
Mr. DeGuerin told the jury: "Corroboration has to be evidence that Celeste was involved in the shooting. And it's a very big distinction.
The state brought evidence to show that Celeste was a bad person. We spent a lot of time on that. The state brought evidence it was believed there was contact between Celeste and Tracey. That doesn't corroborate that Celeste participated in the shooting. Or that Celeste and Tracey had a sexual relationship, and that does not support that Celeste participated in the shooting." Celeste said; "NO" to Tarlton on August 25, 1999, August 28, 1999, and August 29, 1999. NO MEANS NO in any language. Celeste no longer wanted to be friends with Tarlton and there was no contact with her after that. All telephone calls were screened for Celeste. Even Celeste's mother and sister were prevented from talking to her during this time.
Everclear, sleeping pills, plastic bag, botulism, and Ecstasy were presented in the trial. THEY ARE ALL LIES - NO ONE CAN DRINK 190 PROOF EVERCLEAR FOR FOUR YEARS WITHOUT AFFECTING THEIR PANCREAS, SPLEEN, OR KIDNEYS. There was no evidence that the plastic bag, botulism, and Ecstasy ever happened.
Finally, a TV show, "Facing Evil" on Investigation Discovery channel 11/25/11, puts a true face on Celeste's letters from Gatesville Prison. You can see Celeste's fear and twitching in her eyes, as guards enter the interview area. The guards were never seen, but the results were halting answers. Almost 10 years in prison with unhealthy food, over-medication, and stress has left her face bloated and her body fat. Prisoners get 20 minutes to eat their food. The food is sometimes too hot or frozen and it can not be comsumed in the time allotted. She has had the Heimlich procedure performed on her three times or more over the years.
The rest of the show is a poor representation of the shooting and Steven Beard's life with Celeste. It's always good to see another point of view to get the full picture of the truth.
Jails and prisons are two different places. Jail is a place for persons in lawful detention, thus jails have more turnover of people, their families, police officers, attorneys, documentaries and newspaper reporters looking for stories.
Persons convicted or accused of crimes are confined in prisons. They are moved to the many areas designed for their crime behind razor wire away from the public. Hans Sherrer, editor and publisher of Justice Denied magazine wrote a book called: "Dehumanization is Not an Option." It explores how the inhumane treatment of real or suspected wrongdoers is contributed to by the unleashing of authoritarian attitudes, and that bureaucratic systems contribute to barbaric behavior."
Hans Sherrer wrote: "People around the world were shocked when gruesome details were revealed about the mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and other detention facilities run by the United States. Yet their treatment in general differs only by degree from the treatment of people imprisoned in the U.S. and other countries."
