On Monday, September 11th, Public Advocate for the Commonwealth of Kentucky and legal counsel for the defendant in case # 98-CR-067, Mike Ruschell, presented exculpatory evidence in the Hopkins County Court that proved Padgett was innocent of recent charges against him by his scientologist ex-wife. Investigations into the handling of child support checks for Kentucky Support Collection Unit in Lexington found that while the checks had cleared the bank a while ago, they were (mysteriously) missing as a result of an error from a processing clerk with the Cabinet for Families & Children in Frankfort, KY. Padgett's family and friends in Massachusetts believe this was deliberate and a result of covert tampering - a complete set - up job.

The judge and local prosecutor did not show one ounce of remorse or extend any apologies to Padgett for their roles in wrongfully imprisoning him for the past 35 days. Instead they still proceeded forward to quiet backroom efforts in Judge's chambers to have Padgett sign documents and various pieces of paper including promises not to appeal any pending civil court matters to higher courts. Tom refused to sign these under the threat of coercion, as they replete with falsehoods and misleading statements as well as they were replete with constitutional rights. Padgett was sent back to solitary confinement cell for the evening to "think about it." The cell had no bed, blankets, or toilet paper. He was only given a 3' X 6' thin plastic mat to sit or sleep on.

The next day Tuesday, September 12th, Padgett was brought back to a grand jury room where more efforts were made to have him sign agreements drafted by Laura Padgett's private civil attorney. Tom couldn't nor would not sign them as worded. He was marched out in court handcuffed in a striped jail uniform and stood before the bench. The judge ruled they could no longer retain him in custody because of the new evidence alleged to be "just a simple mix up!" However, it was ordered that yet another evidentiary hearing was scheduled on October 2, 2000 to decide if a felony label shall remain with Padgett the remainder of his life, or if the charges should be reduced to a misdemeanor plea and dismissed and expunged from the record.

Padgett's family members and friends back in Cape Cod, MA, collected enough money to "pre-pay" all child support until his son reached 18 years old and graduated from high school whereby the Scientologist mother could never again abuse the child support laws to "fair game" her declared SP enemy ex-husband. Scientology wants the felony rap to stick on Padgett, who's a major PTS for the cult as the perfect Black PR conspiracy. Tom's comments on these recent events are best expressed in his response letter to the Cape Cod Times defending further attacks from O.S.A. operative Frank Ofman (see attached.) Padgett's attorney brother John sees this all as malicious prosecutorial misconduct down in W. Kentucky.
