Let the Games Begin
It looks like Sean David Morton has decided to play lawyer by representing himself in a federal criminal case where he is accused of defrauding the United States government. Also charged in the multiple count indictment is Morton's wife and, ironically, both are charged with conspiracy.
While Morton has chosen to represent himself, his wife/alleged co-conspirator looks like she'll be keeping her court appointed public defender.
"Dr." Sean Morton has advertised himself as a "legal and constitutional expert" who can teach you "all the secrets about how to get the government off your back and out of your life once and for all!! About the BOND PROCESS to set- off, settle and discharge ALL DEBT! About the “SUPERMAN PAPERWORK” that gives you Diplomatic Immunity!"
Hmmmm...perhaps Morton forgot to file that 'Superman paperwork' and it appears this so-called legal expert does not have a law degree. If Morton's legal finesse is anything like it was when the SEC successfully sued Morton and his wife for defrauding investors in out of over $6,000,000.00 in what the SEC called a "psychic scheme", it looks like we're in for more games and a barrage of legal ramblings to be filed and used during the criminal trial by Morton.
In a filing made by the government to protect certain personal and financial information in the criminal case from being made public, it was revealed a massive amount of evidence was seized during a search warrant "including approximately 2500 pages of hard documents seized during a search warrant on September 23, 2015; approximately 10,382 pages of electronic pdf files, 1,300 word files, 100 excel files, and over 2600 pages of text messages and emails obtained from nine digital devices seized during the same search warrant; and approximately 11,000 pages of tax returns, financial statements, emails, text messages, and other correspondence obtained from IRS records and various third party individuals and financial institutions."
It looks like the SEC also provided the IRS with "approximately 1.5 gigabytes of investigative files..."
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for March 29th and it is unclear when the actual trial will take place, but the government estimates the trial will not last longer than a week. Stay tuned...
UPDATE: It looks like the search warrant served by federal investigators at Morton's apartment has been ordered unsealed by a judge at the request of federal prosecutors. ufowatchdog.com will try to obtain a copy of the warrant and affidavit.
