Johnathan Kingsley shares opinion on his years-long battle with the Yonkers criminal justice system over a minor infraction.
In a troubling incident that unfolded on April 25th, 2020, Yonkers Police Officer Jackson, badge number 164, made statements that raise concerns about potential violations of civilian rights and systemic issues within the City of Yonkers Court. This article delves into the sequence of events, shedding light on the delayed ticket, the subsequent transfer to Mount Vernon Court, the dismissal of charges, and the misconduct of court officers. These incidents highlight serious questions about the protection of civilian rights and the adherence to departmental policies and procedures.
Ticket Issued by Officer Jackson
Officer Jackson, during the course of his duties, issued a ticket to a civilian on April 25th, 2020. The ticket became a catalyst for a prolonged legal process and the exposure of potential rights violations.
Delayed Ticket in City of Yonkers Court
The City of Yonkers Court delayed the processing of the ticket for over three years, preventing the civilian from appearing before a judge in a timely manner. This extended delay raises concerns about the principles of justice and due process.
Transfer to Mount Vernon Court
After years of postponements and delays, the City of Yonkers Court transferred the civilian’s case to Mount Vernon Court. This transfer disrupted the continuity of the legal proceedings and added further complications to the already protracted case.
Dismissal of Charges by Mount Vernon Court
In a surprising turn of events, the judge from Mount Vernon Court dismissed the charges that Officer Jackson had written on April 25th, 2020. The dismissal raises questions about the handling of the case and the potential impact on the civilian’s rights.
Rights Violations Underneath Surveillance
During the course of the legal proceedings, court officers at the City of Yonkers Court, violated civilians’ rights while being recorded by surveillance cameras. The existence of such incidents, is deeply concerning and warrants a thorough investigation.
False Charges and Coercion
There are reports of court officers writing false charges against the civilian and engaging in coercive behavior. The forceful removal of the civilian’s phone, resulting in damage to the phone holder, adds to the troubling nature of these incidents.
The Role of Yonkers & Mount Vernon Courts
Both the City of Yonkers Court and Mount Vernon Court bear responsibility, I believe, for the management of legal proceedings and the actions of their employees. It is crucial that all court personnel are aware of and committed to upholding civilian rights and ensuring due process.
The cases involving Yonkers Police Officer Jackson and the City of Yonkers Court raises significant concerns about potential violations of civilian rights and systemic issues within the justice system. The reported events and statements highlight the need for a thorough investigation into the actions of involved parties and a renewed commitment to protecting civilian rights. It is essential that corrective measures are taken to address these issues and restore public trust in the justice system.
