"Public admonishment"? Oh, the horror.
That's what happens when my dog disobeys. He hangs his head and looks ashamed, but I suspect Kim would never do that.

Needs to have the book thrown at her and thrown under the jail after her conviction.. She knew better and still failed to follow the law for her own gain and the gain of others.... She needed to remember that she was held to a higher standard due to the office that she held. .......................... drill sgt.

And when she receives her admonishment sentence we'll see once again that the law means nothing today.

Bungled, yes. A prosecution, no, it was political lawfare and dirty politics all rolled into one. She's well financed by Soros and there are dozens like her nationwide.

One side story to this is that Greitens ex wife was recently getting advice from Karl Rove about her allegations she recently had spread all over the news. More political dirty tricks.

This is getting interesting. Immediately below is a letter penned by members of the grand jury and following is an article outlining the response from the NAACP which casts aspersions on those writing the letter stating that they "conspired to do harm."

Dear [ ]:

As members of a Special Grand Jury in the City of St. Louis, convened between November 2018 and July 2019, we are extremely disappointed in the joint stipulation agreement recommended by the Missouri Office of Disciplinary Counsel in the ethics investigation of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. We urge you to consider much stronger disciplinary action in this case. We firmly believe such action is warranted.

During our eight months of Special Grand Jury service, our investigation resulted in the indictment of an individual who was very closely associated with Ms. Gardner. Our work exposed us to activity and behaviors in the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office that we considered re disturbing and certainly unethical. What we observed was not inadvertent nor inconsequential but was calculated deceit and/or outright incompetence; neither of which is acceptable behavior for a person holding this public office.

The individual we indicted was accused of many crimes, however, he was a private citizen. In our opinion, Ms. Gardner’s offenses were markedly worse. As a lawyer sworn to uphold the law and as a public servant voted to the city’s highest prosecutorial office, her behavior should be beyond reproach. Yet her disregard for the law, as detailed in both the Special Grand Jury indictment as well as in the ethics charges, is reprehensible. Our assignment as jurors was to investigate the indicted but our efforts revealed Ms. Gardner’s illegal prosecutorial misconduct to the point that we believed her actions were was likely indictable as well. The fact that an ethics review was pending suggested gave us hope that Ms. Gardner would indeed face severe and appropriate consequences.

We respectfully encourage you and your peers on the Disciplinary Panel to seriously consider our opinion – as jurors and as citizens of this city. We are personally invested in the outcome of your investigation. Our months long service was not only very time consuming, it was frustrating, grueling and stressful. A strong message must be delivered in this case. If not, we can only feel our time and energy were wasted.

Sincerely,

Seven (7) Special Grand Jurors from the City of St. Louis, Missouri Juror # Juror # Juror #

NAACP alleges jurors in Tisaby case conspired to do harm with letter to judge


Published: May. 11, 2022 at 1:01 PM CDT

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Following a letter written by grand jurors in the William Tisaby case that slammed St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s actions, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People released a statement.

Seven jurors sent a letter on April 20th to Judge Rex Burlison, who presided over the Greitens case, and is addressed to a panel that has investigated Gardner for ethical violations. That panel is currently weighing whether to accept Gardner’s settlement agreement in that ethical proceeding and agree to place a formal reprimand on her law license.

“During our eight months of Special Grand Jury service, our investigation resulted in the indictment of an individual who was very closely associated with Ms. Gardner,” the letter reads. “Our work exposed us to activity and behaviors in the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office that we considered disturbing and unethical. What we observed was not inadvertent nor inconsequential but was calculated deceit and/or outright incompetence; neither of which is acceptable behavior for a person holding this public office.”

The letter is reportedly signed by seven of the grand jurors who investigated and ultimately indicted the private investigator hired by Gardner, William Don Tisaby. They choose to remain anonymous and expressed concern to Judge Burlison that they did not want to violate their oath of secrecy in the grand jury investigation.

The NAACP responded, “the group of seven jurors conspired “to do harm” and elicited Judge Burlison’s assistance by requesting that you review, advise, edit and distribute in secret to purposefully influence the work of an agency of the Missouri Supreme Court. In Missouri, grand jury proceedings are conducted in secret; and Missouri law both protects grand jurors in their oath and prohibits them from violating it (“swearing jurors to truly keep secret”); unlawful disclosures “shall be deemed guilty of a class A misdemeanor.”

Oh! Now following the law is important.

I'm tired of these one way streets. Seems one side wants to ignore the law while demanding that the other side toe the line.

I've not yet been able to determine how this letter became known to the general public. According to the article, the grand jury members responsible for writing it submitted it to Judge Burlison and "expressed concern to Judge Burlison that they did not want to violate their oath of secrecy in the grand jury investigation." It would be interesting to hear from a lawyer as to the propriety of grand jury members submitting such a letter to the judge who presided over the matter from which the need for their services arose.

An additional question would be to what person or office grand jury members experiencing such concerns could lawfully direct those concerns without violating their oath of secrecy.
