Thwarting Terrorism

Delicate balance between security and liberty By James Casey FBI Special Agent in Charge

As we look at the tenth anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, it is significant to note what has transpired during the ensuing decade. The most significant thing so far is that while the spectacular nature of that attack has not been duplicated, attacks continue to be plotted, attempted, executed, and in some cases disrupted. It is also important to note that while the longterm, centralized planning model of the 9/11 attacks appears to have diminished, the tempo and lethality of attacks have not. The point is that the threats posed by acts of terrorism, and the hard work that goes into stopping them poses extraordinary challenges to law enforcement and intelligence professionals because the threats and schemes are so diverse. How a terrorist operation is planned, plotted and eventually carried out does not fit neatly into a single model or an hour-long episode of Criminal Minds. While there have been many dozens of attacks and attempted attacks since September 11, (Bali, Jakarta, Mumbai, London, Northwest Airlines in Detroit are just a few of them), it would be important to reflect on how the attacks have changed by considering 9/11, 3/11, and 7/22. Ten years after the 9/11 attacks, not a lot needs to be said about its impact on our nation. It was a defining moment in history whose reach will be intergenerational. Its importance ranks with the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy, and with events such as the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and Neil Armstrong walking on the moon in 1969. Essayists who talk of time in terms of a pre- and a post-9/11 America are not exaggerating the date’s significance; however, a review of the 9/11 operation shows just how simple it really was in retrospect. The only weapons used were box cutters and duct tape. The entire plot probably cost no more than $300,000 to $400,000 including lots of international travel by the nineteen hijackers. There

Forensic Document Examiner exposes deceptions By Shirley Shaw Richard Orsini placed a handwritten letter on the table before me and asked if I noticed anything unusual. It was a copy of O. J. Simpson’s suicide letter stating, “To Whom It May Concern First everyone understand I had nothOrsini ing to do with Nicole’s murder. I loved her, allways have and always will...” Being an editor, the first thing I observed was no comma after First and allways being misspelled, but Orsini said that wasn’t it. What stood out to him was the amount of space around the words I loved her, followed by the misspelled word allways, which was then written correctly on the next line. This expert handwriting analyst and document examiner says, “Handwriting is both a conscious and subconscious act. The conscious mind can lie, but the subconscious mind cannot, so in handwriting there is potential for detecting insincerity or dishonesty. In Simpson’s letter the spacing around the three words, which makes them stand out, and the misspelled

among other caregivers, remains a very rewarding experience in my life. And I wondered how many more parents in our community might find a place in their hearts and homes for Sebastian or someone like him. Adeline provided information about three other children who have been abused and/or abandoned and would love to have a permanent family: Clayton is an eager-to-please 16year-old who will be in the eighth grade when school starts. He enjoys painting and designing cars, watching Rush Hour movies, and listening to rap music. His wishes are to have a better life, better walkie-talkies, a better cell phone, and a family that cares about him. He has resided at a group home Clayton for the past two years and says his hero is the owner of the home because he has been like a dad to him and is teaching him how to be a man. He enjoys the structure and routine of the group environment but would rather have a family of his own. He is fine with any

type of family as long as they care about him. Clayton and his sister, both previously adopted, came into foster care in March 2007. He was severely physically abused in his adoptive home and had to be admitted to the hospital. His adoptive parents eventually signed surrenders. When asked how his adoptive parents treated him, Clayton simply replies, “Not good.” Even though he is older, he is still hoping that the right family is out there for him. Nine-year-old Damon is generally happy and enjoys eating shrimp and pizza. Intelligent and articulate, he is outgoing and talkative, although sometimes shy around new people. He loves to go swimming and horseback riding. He will be in the fourth grade when school starts in August. He hopes to build things already invented when he is older. Damon and his older halfDamon brother (who has already been adopted) came into foster care in March 2007 as a result of abandonment. The mother lived out

Continued from page 1 of state and custody was given to relatives where the children were residing. In November 2007, Damon was removed from this relative due to physical abuse. The boys were placed in a foster home after spending a few weeks in emergency shelter care. Damon was moved in January 2009 at the request of the foster parents who preferred more independent older children. He has had some difficulties with families in the past but states that he is now ready for the next stage of his life and is ready to be adopted. When asked what type of family he is hoping for, Damon replied that he wanted a mom who is a nurse and a dad who is a chef so that he never has to be hungry or go to the hospital. Jocelyn is a sweet 13-year-old girl who has some special needs and is non-verbal. A unique young lady who enjoys being the center of attention, she loves to smile and laugh, enjoys listening to music and watching the Disney channel. She communicates mostly by pointing to various objects although she does know some sign language. She is capable of doing basic tasks for herself, but prefers to let others do them for her whenever possible. Jocelyn will need a family who will be able to assist her long term, while also pushing her to reach her goals. A family with a sign language background would be espe-

cially ideal for this remarkable girl! Jocelyn came into foster care last year due to abandonment. Her mother is not in the picture. Her stepmother and father asked DCF to come get the child as they did not feel they could care for her; the father requested that his rights be terminated. Jocelyn is now in a medical foster home and is doing well. I can only imagine what a difference in these children’s lives a family would make. For them to have the security and safety of parents who love them, who commit to care for them, nurture them and guide them to maturity, posJocelyn sibly gain new brothers and sisters who welcome them into a friendly, fun-filled environment - all this would be a dream come true.

To Protect and Serve Our monthly recognition for the best of the best Police Officer of the Month

Police Supervisor of the Month

TRACY A. STAPP

LOLITA M. SMITH

Robbery Unit Detective Tracy Stapp is recognized for his investigative work as lead detective in solving 14 armed robberies of Asian restaurant owners in 2010. He worked with the Crime Analysis Unit to develop a list of “likely future targets” - Predictive Analysis - then coordinated with the Patrol Division to conduct stakeouts in locations identified as potential points of interest. In addition, Stapp worked with the JSO’s Public Information Unit to develop a community education brochure, translated into Mandarin Chinese, which included crime prevention techniques. He and two JSO employees, speaking different Asian dialects, then contacted numerous Asian restaurant owners, discussing the recent trend of robberies and how they could keep from becoming a victim. Last September a break finally came when two suspects, who were identified following a similar incident in Brunswick, Georgia, were connected back to Jacksonville. Working with Glynn County PD to compare the cases, Stapp determined that these suspects were probably the same robbers from Jacksonville, and U.S. Marshals and the JSO Swat Team apprehended the suspects without incident. Following these arrests, Stapp and another detective, assisted by two employees fluent in Chinese, obtained several confessions and positive identifications for two of the robberies that occurred earlier in the year. He coordinated a meeting between the State Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Jacksonville to ensure the suspects would be prosecuted by the most appropriate jurisdiction. Sheriff Rutherford announced that “all 17 robberies to Asian restaurant owners in 2010 will be cleared.” Stapp’s supervisor, Sgt. Troy Penn said, “His diligence and teamwork led to a successful conclusion to this series of violent crimes...and should serve as an example to all. He exemplifies our core values of Worthy of Trust and Community Focused.”

Corrections Supervisor of the Month

EQUILLA K. STALLWORTH Sgt. Equilla Stallworth, Watch 3 Administrative Sergeant in the Pre-Trial Detention Facility, is recognized for her exemplary performance since starting in this position last July. She is in charge of all administrative paperwork for approximately 145 employees, completing daily roll calls and distributing the information to shift Captains and Assistant Chiefs, and maintains the Daily Hospital Security Guard Report and Confinement Reports for all inmates who are currently in lock down for safety and security or medical reasons. Basically, she is responsible for all information passed to or received from Corrections Officers. Equilla’s role includes being liaison with the hospital security staff at Shands Jacksonville and other area hospitals. She keeps a log of arrestees who have been admitted to the hospital, along with the date and room number. She deals with anyone who calls the PTDF for information - other law enforcement agencies, state agencies, visitors, lawyers and bondsmen. She transfers the call to where it needs to go, answers questions and relays relevant information to supervisors, security or intelligence. In March Equilla became a guardian ad litem (when she is off-duty), volunteering to ensure the legal rights of children and be an advocate for their best interests in a court proceeding. She exemplifies the JSO’s Core Values of Respect for Each Other and Community Focused. In his nomination, Equilla’s immediate supervisor, Lt. Gaston Carlton stated, “...She often does not receive the recognition and appreciation she very much deserves...Sgt. Stallworth is the person we rely upon in this difficult position.”

2011 Florida Sheriffs Association Deputy Sheriff of the Year

CON KELLEY, CLAY COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE The Clay County Sheriff’s Office announced August 3 that CCSO Deputy Con Kelley is the recipient of the FSA’s Deputy Sheriff of the Year award. “We congratulate Deputy Kelley and all the other outstanding officers who were nominated,” said Steve Casey, Executive Director of the Florida Sheriffs Association. “We give thanks to all of the Florida LEOs who protect our great state every day...and we are honored that the exemplary efforts of Deputy Kelley were recognized today.” Kelley began his Law Enforcement career in Virginia after spending six years working in the Health Administration field (in which he holds a Master’s degree). After two years in Richmond, he came to Orange County Florida and finally to the CCSO. His extraordinary law enforcement skills earned him nominations for recognition twice in the two years he has been there. These skills were tested on the night of November 11, 2010, when Kelley responded to a call about a suspicious car parked in a gated community. Arriving on scene, he was flagged down by the caller, who showed Kelley the building where the suspects had been seen. After relaying his location to dispatch, Kelley approached the building where he could hear arguing coming from the garage, then drawing closer he heard screaming and multiple gun shots inside and saw the garage door beginning to open. As the door opened, Kelley was confronted by the two suspects and a brief gun battle ensued in which one of the suspects was killed and the second captured after a brief foot pursuit. Kelley then assisted with the evacuation of citizens in the area as well as maintaining the perimeter. After further investigation of the crime scene, a third subject was found in the garage with multiple gunshot wounds. He died en route to the hospital, where it was determined he was the homeowner’s cousin who was watching the house at the time of the incident. The bravery of Deputy Kelley and the swift actions he employed led to the apprehension of two criminals who took the life of an innocent man, and prevented further casualties.

SEPTEMBER 2011

Sgt. Lolita Smith, supervisor for the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU), is recognized for her hard work during the past year and for being an essential part of the IAU’s success. Her responsibilities include (in addition to normal supervision duties): • Reviewing and assigning citizen and in-house complaints against JSO employees. • Tracking progress of in-house complaints initiated by JSO employees, IA investigations resulting from citizen complaints and field level investigations. The process could last up to 60 days for each; in some circumstances, the investigator may be granted an extension and the investigation could be as long as 180 days. • Monitoring / ensuring that the five IA detectives she supervises are prepared for Disciplinary Hearings. • Overseeing the work product of one corrections sergeant. • Ensuring detectives for the IAU conduct their investigations within policy guidelines and adhere to State-mandated requirements which protect officers’ rights. This involves eight various labor contracts associated with members of the JSO. Smith’s teambuilding abilities are apparent in the working relationships she has built with members of other JSO units, Employee Awareness Program Administrators, the City of Jacksonville’s General Counsel’s Office, and FDLE’s General Counsel’s Office. In a recent case with FDLE Smith went to the home of a civilian witness who was physically unable to travel and swore the witness in so she could provide testimony telephonically during the hearing with FDLE. Supervisor Lt. Cary Cowan said, “Smith’s infectious ‘can do’ attitude is the integral element of the success of the JSO Internal Affairs Unit. Her actions build trust and relationships by ensuring the IAU provides premier service...support[ing] the goals of making JSO ‘THE’ Premier Law Enforcement Agency.”

Civilian Employee of the Month

NANCY L. FRASER Information Technology Analyst Nancy Fraser works for the Information Systems Management Unit (ISM) as Strategic Planner and Project Manager. In January 2010, she was assigned to assist in the procurement of a new vehicle camera system to be installed in DUI Unit cars. She met with members of the DUI Unit, who had reviewed several systems, and listened to their needs, likes and dislikes. She took that information and researched available products that would suit the Unit’s needs and be an asset to the Agency. Following the selection of the Arbitrator 360 camera, Nancy coordinated with JSO network engineers and computer support teams to determine requirements for the selected equipment - and in an effort to streamline the process down the road, she also met with the State Attorney’s Office. Nancy initiated appropriate requisitions and purchase documents, ensuring the purchase of these systems included costs of installation training and training on use of equipment when installed. During the procurement phase, JSO introduced the Highway Drug Interdiction Unit under the Department of Investigations and Homeland Security, so officers in this unit also had to be included so they would have cameras for their cars. When the equipment arrived, Nancy confirmed the vendor sent the correct equipment and computer software for the contracted price, she coordinated the installation of the software on the JSO server for video retention, and she coordinated with the DUI and Interdiction Unit officers, ISM Personnel and the vendor to set up the installation of the camera software on the officers’ laptops and provide hands-on training for each of the officers. The last step of this project began in February, testing all equipment to ensure collection of audio and video in the cars, as well as testing the upload process to get audio and video files to the JSO server. Nancy’s supervisor, ISM Manager Gary Andrews, said, “Without her tremendous dedication, attention to detail and effort, this project could not have been completed. Nancy is a shining example of the truly professional and involved people we have working at JSO. She is highly deserving of this award!”

Reserve Officer of the Month

JAY SPILL Reserve Officer Jay Spill, a part of JSO’s Reserve Unit since March 2007, is one of its most active volunteers and far exceeds the minimum monthly requirement of 20 hours a month - all while maintaining a full-time job. He is being recognized for an incident that occurred while on patrol as part of the Zone 2 Task Force with Officer Douglas Smith. Last November, while Smith and Spill were driving near the Arlington Expressway on Arlington Road, Spill witnessed a vehicle driving past them that violated Florida’s tinted windows law and suggested they stop the vehicle. During the traffic stop, Spill approached from the passenger side and detected a slight odor of marijuana and observed a small amount of marijuana on the floorboard on the passenger’s side. After sharing this information with Smith, the officer asked the driver to step out of the vehicle for further questioning. After investigation and a thorough search of the vehicle, they discovered in the glove box a baggie containing 19 grams of marijuana, as well as a stolen 9-milimeter Ruger pistol in the trunk. Coincidentally, that pistol had been reported stolen two days prior after a burglary to a vehicle in Zone 3. The driver was taken into custody and charged with multiple violations, all stemming from the lawful traffic stop. Recently, Spill assisted in the search for two little girls, ages 8 and 10, in Zone 3. They located the children within 30 minutes and returned them safely home.

The Justice Coalition began in 1995 because one man’s priorities were changed. Ted Hires was the average businessman working 60 to 80 hours a week and looking out for himself until that day when he and his staff were held at gunpoint and robbed. Being a victim of crime, Ted found the criminal justice system worked harder for the criminal than the victim. As a result of Ted’s experience, he formed a (501C3) non-profit organization, the Justice Coalition, and is making an effort to change the Fourth Judicial court system for the better. Since 1995, the Justice Coalition has been fighting crime every step of the way. Fugitives captured are through a partnership with local media and law enforcement agencies.

THE JUSTICE COALITION’S OBJECTIVES

were expenses such as flight training, living expenses and of course we now know there were other hijackers who did not make the final team. The single biggest asset to the plot may have been an element of surprise that could seemingly never be duplicated again today. How many airline passengers have we seen in the intervening years jump to the assistance of a flight crew when the only threat was a drunk or unruly passenger? The thought that 200 fellow passengers would ever again allow a small group of terrorists armed with sharp instruments to take over an airplane cockpit is probably extremely remote. Even the 9/11 Commission which investigated the plot extensively concluded the plan on September 11 was not sophisticated, but that it was “good enough.” What the 9/11 hijackers did have going for them was infrastructure, terrorist training camps, financing, and the backing of what the intelligence community commonly refers to as Core al Qaeda. Flash forward to 3/11/2004 and the attack on the train system in Madrid, Spain. Almost nothing from this event mirrored that from 9/11. There were fewer casualties to be sure (191 deaths v. 2800 in NY, the Pentagon, and the United Airlines crash site in Pennsylvania), but there was no central planning from Core al Qaeda. All of the attackers were citizens of Spain; none had to travel anywhere to receive training; they were self-funded and did all of the planning themselves. Most significantly,

they were self-radicalized and carried out the plot without strategic or tactical guidance from Osama bin Laden or the leadership of al Qaeda; it was a classic franchise operation. The next year, on 07/07/2005, almost the exact same model of an al Qaeda inspired, but not al Qaeda directed attack was successfully carried out against the London subway and bus system resulting in 56 dead and more than 700 injured. This model of decentralized plots has continued and included some plots here in the United States that could be considered “near misses,” including an attempted attack against the New York City subway system and the failed Times Square bombing attempt. While we know from the operation that was conducted on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan this past May that he remained fascinated by the notion of a spectacular attack on America, clearly Core al Qaeda had changed by encouraging these types of self-generated terrorist attacks. Now let us consider the attack in Oslo, Norway, on 7/22 just six weeks ago. Of course, this was not an al Qaeda attack or even one related to radical Islamic extremism, and that is exactly the point. The families of the 77 victims of that attack are no less consoled because the perpetrator of that attack appears to be a “Lone Wolf” with no group affiliation and no formal inspiration. His own attorney referred to him the day after the attack as having significant psycho-

logical problems. There have been attempts to compare Anders Behring Breivik to Timothy McVeigh, a sort of domestic terrorist like the man responsible for bombing the Oklahoma City Federal Building in 1995 killing 168, but a better comparison might be to Theodore Kaczynski also known as the Unabomber. Recall that Kaczynski was responsible for a 20-year span of terrorist activity during which he mailed sophisticated package bombs to dozens of universities and American businesses killing three individuals and injuring 23. Kaczynski and Breivik were both of above-average intelligence (Kaczynski was considered a genius with an IQ of 167), both wrote lengthy manifestos railing against societal woes (as they saw them), and both were aligned against what they considered to be the “left” of the societies they lived in. Since the very definition of terrorism includes the use of force of violence to intimidate a civilian population in order to achieve a political gain, in the end both Kaczynski and Breivik are classic, Lone Wolf terrorists1. Thus, September 11, 2001, was not the first terrorist attack against the United States of America and unfortunately it has not been the last; there will no doubt be more in the future. It was, to be sure, the most devastating terrorist attack in our nation, and it represented the single biggest one day loss of life in America since the Battle of Antietam in 1864. Just like armies that have to be careful about fighting the last war, we need to be vigilant against fixating on previous terrorist attacks, and instead concentrate on what the threat is today. Who seeks to do us harm and why? How and where will they attempt an attack? And perhaps most importantly, who knows something now and how does law enforcement find out about it, always keeping in mind the delicate balance between our security and our liberty. It should be noted that as of the date of this writing, Breivik has not been tried or convicted in any court, but he has reportedly acknowledged to his attorneys that he is responsible for the bombing in Oslo and the shooting outside Oslo causing the deaths of 77 Norwegian citizens. 1

Orsini...

Continued from page 1 Orsini then produced another page containing three handwritten statements in connection with the loss of several thousand dollars stolen from a grocery store. “All 19 employees had to write a statement about what they were doing at the time, and these three were the final ones examined. Which one do you think was guilty?”

ed again. So you circle that and consider it might be potentially dishonest.” The next document Orsini showed me was a Last Will and Testament. I couldn’t see anything amiss until he pointed out the date - 1955 - and the address of the attorney which included a zip code. There were no zip codes back then; they didn’t exist until the 70s. He then showed me a document which presented another interesting method of determining authenticity. A Republic of Liberia birth certificate stated the man was born in Monrovia on Wednesday, May 17, 1965. Using his handy perpetual calendar, Orsini learned May 17 occurred on Monday that year. This reminded him of a case where a man, who was suing the Dept. of Business and Professional Relations, claimed his license was issued to him on a certain date; however, the perpetual calendar revealed that particular date was Labor Day, so that office would have been closed for the holiday and no license would have been issued. The bogus document had been cut and pasted to look legitimate.

Highly skilled professional

I said I couldn’t tell, except I did notice the big space between words in the janitor’s statement which turned out to be the key factor. Orsini said, “Why was there so much space between at and my? My is not a hard word to spell, so why the space? The man’s thinking, I’m going to have to tell a lie (about his usual departure time), and his subconscious reflected it. He turned out to be the thief. “People often lie in their statements and give it away in their handwriting. Sometimes it may be a word that’s crossed off or changed somehow. Why? Because the next (or preceding) word affected them - they were either lying or thinking about it. That’s why when we get anonymous letters we really scrutinize not just how they’re written, the technical aspect, we look at everything about them. Is there something unusual, one word higher than the other, or lower, or the writing slants right, but the word that might be a lie slants the other way, then the writing is back to being slant-

Orsini is a busy man who works out of his home office in Jacksonville Beach. Trained in his craft by some of the country’s most renowned handwriting experts, he has worked cases from 35 different states and nine foreign countries. His first instructor, Daniel S. Anthony, taught in graduate schools such as Harvard and Princeton and was the expert witness in the Atty. Gen. John Mitchell case, Watergate, the Sharon Tate-Charles Manson murder investigation and the Son of Sam case. His exhaustive education and training by individuals such as Andrew Bradley (FBI and U.S. Secret Service instructor) and by Larry Ziegler (a 35year veteran document examiner, formerly with the FBI and Secret Service) have enabled Orsini to provide definitive, expert conclusions in more than 1,000 critical situations. He recalled William Darrel Lindsay, a serial killer who murdered several women in Northeast Florida and North Carolina. “Detectives were having a hard time interrogating him and the sheriff of St Johns County at that time asked me if I could profile him. So I did and told the sheriff that the guy hates women. ‘There’s no way he is going to talk to you about himself; he’ll talk to you about everything else, but not about himself.’

“The sheriff took my report, my advice, and sent in a female detective to interrogate Lindsay, and he lost it. He started yelling, ‘Yeah, my mama used to tie me up and put me in a closet, and yeah, I did it.’ The male detectives went back in and Lindsay confessed to killing seven women. Among other things, I had observed that his handwriting was all slanted to the right but the personal pronoun ‘I’ stood vertical. He was saying, ‘I’m not talking to anyone about me.’ The sheriff was amazed and sent me a nice letter of appreciation.” Determining whether documents are forged comprises a huge percentage of Orsini’s workload. He says, “Black’s Law Dictionary defines forgery as: the false making or the material altering of a document with the intent to defraud. And, of course, unscrupulous people resort to this crime every day - for one reason or another. He recalled a custody battle where the husband’s father got involved, took his son’s signature and pasted it on 12 documents. Orsini emphatically states, “It is impossible to sign your name the same way every time. No matter how many times you write it, something will be different. So when I looked at the 12 documents, they all had the exact same characteristics - even though the father had used his computer skills to skew the different copies, enlarge or slant, but they were easily identified as the same one.” Orsini wants to educate businesses about forgery and gives advice about what to look for (see sidebar). Meanwhile, remember that every time you write, you subconsciously reveal who you are. His motto is: What you write is your business; how you write it is mine. 1

Another assessment of Simpson’s suicide letter can be reviewed at this website: http://www.lsiscan.com/o_j__simpson_suicide_letter_.htm

Forgery What businesses should determine: 1. Are there indications of corrections, overwriting, erasures, tears, tracing or discoloration? 2. Are the original witnesses or victims dead, missing or unknown? 3. Was the document discovered under unusual or timely circumstances? 4. Does the paper seem out-of-date, odd-shaped, off-color or peculiar? 5. Were different color inks used? 6. If typewritten, does the material line up consistently or reflect a different style (font) on the portion in dispute? 7. Do the pages, paragraphs or sentences appear to be out-of-sequence? The secret words are “Let’s roll!” 8. Did the alleged author act contrary

SEPTEMBER 2011

to known life habits to execute the document? 9. Did the writing instrument exist at the time of the writing? (For example, the ballpoint pen was introduced in this country in 1946; therefore, a will written with a ballpoint pen prior to that date is suspect.) 10. Does the client, claimant or witness repeatedly point out items to support the document’s authenticity or lack thereof? 11. Is the client reluctant to have the document professionally examined or unwilling to supply handwriting samples? If you think you have a forged document and want to have it examined, Orsini advises to:

• Secure the original or best photocopy of the questioned document. • Secure normal course of business signatures (these have the advantage of naturalness, spontaneity and lack of disguise). • Do NOT mark the documents in any way. Forgeries can be classified into six methods or types: Trace - involves drawing/tracing a genuine signature. Simulation - genuine signature served as a model for the forger. (Depending on the forger’s drawing skill, this can be the most challenging to uncover.) Memory - practicing victim’s signature until it is memorized. Freehand - forger uses his/her own style or create a disguised one.

Cut and paste - high-tech communication devices and computers have caused an increase in crimes involving electronically produced documents. Copiers can place authentic signatures on fraudulent documents or fraudulent signatures on genuine documents. Auto - deliberately disguising one’s own signature to disclaim it at a later date. This is usually found in marital disputes and in cases involving claims of “undelivered” goods. Finally, discuss the circumstances or history involved in the creation of the suspect document with the client. Was the victim old, ill, injured, etc., at the time of writing? Be sure to relay this information to the document examiner.

He was presented the Six Pillars of Character award by Character Counts! in Jacksonville at JSO’s awards ceremony in July for his role in affecting the future of one young man. Last June a 17-year-old was reported missing after he left the TPC Village Adolescent Rehab Treatment Center without permission. A few days later the juvenile’s grandmother contacted JSO to report that he had been located and was safe. She also asked if an officer would talk to her grandson about the dangers of skipping school, doing drugs and hanging out with “the wrong kind” of people. Tony and Det. Frank Lockley canvassed the area where the grandmother said her grandson was most likely to hang out and found him sitting with several young men his age on the front porch of an abandoned house. Tony convinced him to go back to the police station where his grandmother would pick him up, and he talked to him about the dangers of hanging out in the streets, skipping school and being careful in his associations. As a result of this conversation, the young man agreed to stay in school and straighten out his life, and Tony told the grandmother that if he began to act out again to please contact him.

Rep. Ander Crenshaw with young volunteers at the August Pray Jacksonville! luncheon: (l. to r.) David Root, Miranda Carr, Garrett Carr, Nichole Scahill and Mollie Root. Several elected officials, city leaders, members of law enforcement and other citizens attended Pray Jacksonville! at a luncheon held August 9 in their honor. The purpose of this monthly gathering of believers is to intercede for our city’s leaders and ask God to change hearts of individuals on the First Coast. U.S. Representative Ander Crenshaw, who attended this special meeting, spoke about the importance of Godly leadership.

Pray Jacksonville! Invitation to prayer warriors Since 2008, Pray Jacksonville! has brought together each month a group of believers who intercede for our city’s leaders and for a change in the hearts of individuals on the First Coast. The goal of this initiative is, through prayer, to help reduce the crime rate and make our community a safer place to live.

Mayor’s office seeks better handle on crime Mayor Alvin Brown’s recently unveiled transition policy papers highlighted a drop in crime but also unearthed several challenges in fighting crime in Jacksonville. Former Sheriff and current Edward Waters College President Nat Glover and former U.S. Ambassador Nancy Soderberg co-chaired the Mayor ’s Public Safety Committee, which took an in-depth look at the police, fire and public health departments. The committee found that the Jacksonville Sheriff ’s Office has been making progress but still has challenges in meeting the needs of minorities and the disadvantaged. Complicating matters, an average of 400 federal prisoners, 1,800 state prisoners and 51,000 city jail inmates are released annually in Northeast Florida amid the recent economic crisis that has made finding a job even more difficult. The transition committee recommended that key stakeholders in public, pri-

vate, faith and academic sectors get together to try to get a better handle on crime. The public safety report is among 18 transition papers that the mayor is reviewing. He has invited the committees to check back in six months for a status report on their ideas. “Even if the crime rate is falling, that means next to nothing for anyone who still becomes a crime victim,” said Mayor Brown. “No city can be 100 percent safe at all times but it is good to hear of JSO’s advances.” Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt reported to the committee that better technology and smarter policing have helped to anticipate and prevent crime, especially in the developing area of gang intelligence. In the coming year, the Sheriff ’s Office is trying to do its work less expensively to help the city close a citywide $58 million budget gap. Senterfitt said the city will save $10 million through position cuts and other efficiency measures.

12 • THE JUSTICE COALITION’S VICTIMS’ ADVOCATE

SEPTEMBER 2011


New Laws - Sexual Crimes (Continued) By Jay Howell First, an update from last month’s article, which identified the new Florida Statute allowing for the use of what are called “therapy or service dogs” to assist Florida children in testifying in court. In a recent New York case the 15-year-old victim was allowed to testify at trial with a registered service or therapy dog at her side regarding the sexual abuse of the child by her father. The judge in that case allowed the Golden Retriever to sit at the feet of the 15-year-old victim. After the

conviction of the accused, the criminal defense attorney indicated that he will appeal the conviction in part because of the presence of the therapy animal. The defense will probably argue that the presence of the dog increased the sympathy of the jury for the victim herself. The new Florida law allows the trial judge to set any conditions that the court finds to be just and appropriate while taking the testimony of a child under the age of 16 or a person with mental retardation, including the use of a service or therapy animal that has been evaluated and registered according to national standards. This provi-

sion applies in any proceeding involving a sexual offense. The judge is required by the statute to take into consideration the age of the child, the interests of the child, the rights of the parties, and any other relevant factors that would facilitate the testimony by the child. My reading of this statute indicates that these provisions would apply to civil cases involving child sexual assault as well as criminal cases. We can expect to see challenges to the new law similar to the defense attorney’s arguments in New York. The 2011 legislature also added to the provisions of the misdemeanor criminal of-

OUR EMPLOYEES ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS FOR 46 YEARS

fense concerning the violation of a court injunction for protection. These provisions apply to a person who willfully violates an injunction for protection against repeat violence, sexual violence, or dating violence. The legislature added that the perpetrator’s presence within 500 feet of the victim’s residence, school, place of employment, or any place frequented by the victim, or their family, is a violation of the injunction and a misdemeanor crime. Previously the statute simply stated that going “to” the residence or school was a violation. The legislature also made it a misdemeanor if the perpetrator intentionally comes within 100 feet of the victim’s motor vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is occupied. They also added the act of defacing or destroying the victim’s personal property, including the victim’s motor vehicle, and the defendant’s refusing to surrender firearms or ammunition if ordered to do so by the court. All of these acts in violation of an injunction remain a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in the county jail.

This new bill regarding injunctions is identified as Senate Bill 240. This new law took effect on July 1, 2011. One of the problems that has traditionally plagued the crime victim’s attempt to seek injunctions for protection against violence is the difficulty in serving the defendant with the papers requesting that an injunction be granted. The 2011 legislature requires the Association of Court Clerks to develop an automated process through which the victim may request notification that the defendant has been served with a protective injunction against domestic violence, repeat violence, dating violence, or sexual violence as well as other court actions related to the injunction. This will allow the victim to move forward in the injunction process by receiving an automatic notice that the paperwork has been delivered to the defendant. This new law took effect July 1, 2011, and is identified as House Bill 563. Jay Howell, a Jacksonville attorney, has been a State Prosecutor, a US Senate Investigator, and the founder of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He represents crime victims in civil claims for damages and advocates for the legal rights of all victims.
