Pending Cases and Your Support

From Lt. Mike Smith:

We need to get this out to the community. The two listed defendants are the currently most active criminals in our community that have pending cases. Both have active cases in court and we need to write the judges and the prosecutors to ensure that we keep them out of Logan Circle. We can also testify at the sentencing.

JACQUELINE JOHNSON LEE
File Date: 11/10/2005
Docket Number: 05314865 / M11818-05
Judge/Officer: JOHNSON, RAMSEY
Sexual Solicitation
Next Appearance Date: 12/16/2005 9:00am
Appearance Type: Status
Judge: Johnson, Ramsey

Ms. Johnson has a long history of prostitution at 11th Street and P Street, NW; she is a white female, blond hair, blue eyes, 5-7, 160 lbs and has a rough face. Each time she has been arrested, she has claimed that she lives at 1331 11th Street, NW (She does not) so that the judge won’t issue a stay a way notice to her. I got a letter from the property owner that reported that she does not live there. We need to use this and the fact that she has a long arrest history to ensue that the judge is severe on this case and ensures that she does not come back to Logan Circle to disrupt our community with prostitution

Christopher Gaines
File Date: 10/31/2005
Docket Number: 05304971 / F06295-05
Judge/Officer: WINFIELD, SUSAN H
UCSA Distribution Cocaine
Next Appearance Date: 12/16/2005 9:30am
Appearance Type: Status
Judge: Winfield, Susan H

Mr. Gaines has also been arrested numerous times around 11th Street and N Street, NW, selling drugs. He is 5-6, 115 lbs, and walks with a severe limp. He lives on 7th Street and none of the judges have issued a stay a ways in any of his cases. So he keeps coming back time and time again. We need to use this and the fact that he has a long arrest history to ensue that the judge is severe on this case and ensures that he does not come back to Logan Circle to disrupt our community with dealing drugs.

I have no relation to any of the cases. I haven't witnessed anything, seen anything, or know anything. Are there any steps such a know-nothing can take to help?

I would think that you and others that feel similar should contact Lt. Mike Smith or Committee Chairs Mike Sheaffer and Jennifer Trock of Logan's Crime and Public Safety Committee (CPSC) for further input. Thanks for your concern.

The CPSC is aware of the issue and is working on an apporpriate response. We will keep you updated.

I doubt that even if we get letters out in the mail today that they will be read in time for the trial. Is there any way to circulate a pettition through the neighborhood and have someone deliver it personally on Friday to the court?
