    Judge Douglas Stoddart used a God oath to swear in a defendant. (see Deuteronomy 6:13). He clearly accepts the notion of God. (Assistant Clerk Magistrate Jeffrey Brigham, $90,000)
    Do you swear to God to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

    Very disappointing to see this in what we like to think are secular courts.

    A few minutes later, Stoddart denigrates this woman defendant by making fun of her in front of the court audience. That is not his role as a judge. This constitutes malfeasance on his part.

    While Stoddart complains of the incompetence of the Middlesex DA's office in this article , he did not have any complaint about ADA Ben Franklin not having my case file.

        Attn: Judge Douglas W. Stoddart

        Dear sir,

        I am writing to you concerning the injustice that you helped 
        perpetrate on me by assigning my case to your cohort, David W. 

        My complaint is documented on the web at:


        The buttons on top expand to other web pages.

        I include a printed copy of the main complaint.  I ask that you 
        take less than 30 minutes to read it and enjoy it.  It contains
        tales of perjury, arrogance, stupidity and other human traits.

        If the complainant states clearly that I had allegedly damaged her 
        car and the DA acknowledges her statement, and the judge belatedly
        states he had seen no damage on the car, then someone lied.  In
        fact, all four of them lied.  The judge, David W. Cunis convicted
        me but later recanted his visual observations, the DA, Jessica
        Hogan by claiming she had proven beyond a reasonable doubt that I 
        was guilty of felony vandalism, the police officer Robert F. Tibor
        by describing damage that was very different than the damage 
        claimed by the complainant, even if his testimony was all hearsay
        from the complainant, and finally the complainant lied since 
        it conflicts with the judge's recantations.

        I sincerely hope that as an associate Judge of the Framingham 
        District Court you will closely examine my complaint and one of
        these days, someone might actually ask the complainant about her
        car door and examine it closely.  By the way I have plenty of
        closeup pictures of her door should you wish to examine evidence.
        Cunis, Hogan and Tibor  did not seem interested.  Cunis made the
        extraordinary claim that dents in car doors heal themselves 
        (11/16/2012), and I hope you can provide me with evidence of
        such peculiar behaviour in sheet metal.

        Perjury is considered a serious offense as it can be used to
        usurp the power of the courts, resulting in miscarriages of 
        justice.  That would be your court, sir.

        There was the hilarious restitution paper (damage assessment
        report, as I call it) that no one asked any questions about because
        it might have been embarassing to do so, given the police report.

        The "piece de resistance" however, was judge Cunis's remarkable 
        statement about the alleged damage after we had seen the door, and
        I was questioning officer Tibor.  That's a keeper for all times.
        It's even more absurd given his recantations.

        The question I would most like answered is:  When did Cunis 
        realize he had not seen any damage on the door?  When he examined
        the door (10/05/2012), or just after I got out of prison 

        I'm just keeping you in the loop so you don't play innocent
        with me in the future and claim that you have no idea who I am.

                                                       Sincerely yours,

                                                       Harold J. Wolfe

I was arrested for trespassing on 10/29/2014. When it went to trial on 11/18/2015, the case was 378 days old.

Police officers Michael Esposito and Richard Pomales and the DAs ( Emily Farley, Colleen Robinson) all exit the court house via the judges chambers and use the good restrooms behind judges chambers as testimony that there is no difference between the police, DAs and the judges as independent units. They are all integrated as a single unit standing against the ne'er do wells photographers.
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that the police report could not be used as evidence. Holy Batshit!. Where is the case without the police report?
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that one cannot challenge the veracity of anyone who has sworn an oath to an imaginary creature (God)? What absolute bullshit. Therefore, perjury cannot exist. Apparently the imaginary creature is a force to be reckoned with in the courts. This explains why no one is ever charged with perjury. Who knew!
(Assistant Clerk Magistrate Jeffrey Brigham, $90,000)
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart deliberately allowed two witnesses to testify against me knowing full well that their testimony had absolutely no relevance to the charge of trespassing (MGL-266-120)
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that I could not call the DA (Emily Farley) to the stand. I wanted to know if she even knew where I stood, while she relentlessly prosecuted me for trespassing. I wanted to show how stupid DAs really are.
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that there may not be any injury to any party for a crime to exist. WTF?
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that a complaint from the property owner need not exist for trespassing (MGL-266-120) . I read the law and the law requires it.
The court is stunningly full of shit.

Judge Douglas W. Stoddart stated that the jury is not entitled to know the penalty for breaking a law. Why should the jury not know that the maximum penalty for taking pictures is 30 days in prison?
The court is stunningly full of shit.

The DA, Emily Farley wanted to sentence me to the full 30 days as stated in the by the trespassing (MGL-266-120) law. How malicious and malevolent to incarcerate someone taking pictures for 30 days. What a bitch! She was not the least interested in justice. She just wanted another gold star pinned to her little titties as a show of prosecutorial prowess. She may have been swayed by my previous muslim bitch ADA, Batool Raza who was watching my trial in the back seats. I actually had three ADAs present and you could almost hear them chant:

We are good, we are great.. We are here to incarcerate

The Middlesex DA's office had the deed of transference for five months but Emily Farley failed to verify it. Again, she just wanted another gold star pinned to her little titties as a show of prosecutorial prowess. There was no interest in justice. Her dictionary may not even have that word. Typical of Marian T. Ryan and her little bitches.

State Appeals Court overturns OUI conviction of Framingham woman February 10, 2016
Brad Avery 508-626-4449 Metrowest Daily News
BOSTON - The state Appeals Court overturned a Framingham woman's OUI conviction on the grounds that comments made by the trial judge influenced the jury's verdict.

The Appeals Court ruling, released Wednesday, was in favor of Kristie Firmin, who was convicted of a second offense of operating under the influence of alcohol on Jan. 24, 2013. Firmin, who was 39 at the time, was arrested by Framingham Police on Feb. 29, 2012, after an officer noticed her car swerving down the road.

However, during Firmin's trial in Framingham District Court, instructions to the jury by Judge Douglas Stoddart were found by the Appeals Court to be coercive, putting pressure on the jury to reach a verdict.

"If we don't get a unanimous verdict, it's called a mistrial or a hung jury and we have to do this case all over again and we're booked out until May now," Stoddart said to the jury after closing arguments, according to the Appeals Court decision. "So, we'd really appreciate it if you guys could resolve this. So, I guess I would suggest that, maybe let everybody, you know, just chat informally, not take formal votes right away and then, at some point during the deliberations, if you see a ground swell of support in one direction or the other, then do whatever voting or whatever you need to do to get to that ultimate point."

Stoddart adjourned court at 12:41 p.m., shortly before the 1 p.m. lunch break. Court reconvened at 2:28 p.m., and the jury delivered a guilty verdict.

The Appeals Court ruled that Stoddart's comments may have pushed jurors toward voting for a conviction by asking that they vote with the majority opinion.

Jin-Ho King, Firmin's lawyer, said Firmin did not serve any jail time but was placed on probation, which she completed. Firmin also lost her driver's license and had to pay court and supervision fees.

"Trial judge is a very difficult job," King said. "It's hard to make cases accessible, understandable and interesting to jurors. It's a challenge. Sometimes comments intended to be helpful end up being coercive and I think that's what happened here. I don't think he intended that, but I am glad the Appeals Court recognized the comments as coercive."

King said she didn't know if Firmin will be retried, but that possibility remains. Meghan Kelly, director of communications for Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan, said the DA's Office is reviewing the decision and assessing options.

Stoddart was unavailable for comment Wednesday. On her lawyer's advice, Firmin declined to comment because the case is still open.
