bias by judge in York case

Fireworks erupted Friday in the federal child molestation trial
of cult leader Malachi York when his defense attorney angrily
accused the judge of bias for the prosecution and asked that he
remove himself from the case.
U.S. District Court Judge Ashley Royal, however, said he would
not step down.
Also Friday, a 16-year-old girl testified that York began having
sex with her when she was 12 and that it didn't stop until he
was arrested three years later.
Adrian Patrick, York's attorney, asked that Royal remove himself
following a conference at the judge's bench. Patrick asked for
the jury to be excused, then stood before the judge and accused
him of making an improper suggestion to assistant U.S. Attorney
"The court prompted the government to introduce evidence,"
Patrick told the judge in a raised voice.
The conference involved
a medical report on a male witness who testified that York
molested him repeatedly as a child. The report indicated that
the witness originally denied being molested, but both the
witness and FBI agent Joan Cronier said the report was wrong.
Patrick said Royal prompted the prosecution to introduce another
section of the report.
"The court is overstepping its bounds,"
"I can present evidence," Royal responded. "I can
question witnesses. You are incorrect in that."
Outside the courtroom, Middle District U.S. Attorney Max Wood
called Patrick's demand "totally without merit."
Moultrie questioned the male witness about a section of the
report that indicated he was getting the exam because of
concerns of diseases related to the York case.
Five children were taken into protective custody when local and
federal officers raided the Putnam County village where York and
his followers lived in May 2002. According to authorities, four
of five children tested positive for sexually transmitted
The 16-year-old girl who testified Friday was the youngest of
the alleged victims to take the stand so far. Her brother, the
first alleged male victim to testify, took the witness stand
The girl admitted that she at one time denied
being molested. Patrick pointed out that in her original
interview, when investigators asked if she knew why she was
being interviewed, she responded, "Because of the lies they have
been saying about Mr. York."
She said she gave that statement because she was scared and had
been warned not to talk about sexual activity with York. She
recanted several months later.
Her testimony was followed by that of an 18-year-old male, the
younger brother of the first two alleged female victims to
testify. He was the witness on the stand when Patrick asked
Royal to recuse himself. The witness said York began to behave
sexually toward him when he was 7, and molestations continued
for years afterward. He left York's Putnam County compound in
2001 with his mother and sisters, he said, when his mother found
out about sexual activity between her children and York.
He admitted to a meeting with his father, York defense
attorney Manny Aurora and a defense investigator during which he
denied being molested. He said he did so because he feared his
mother could face charges if the allegations came out.
In all, five people took the witness stand this week and said
York molested them repeatedly. They all said the molestations
began at a young age, gradually evolved to intercourse,
continued regularly for a number of years and often involved
other children and adults.
But with most of the witnesses, Patrick pointed out
inconsistencies between their testimony and previous statements.
After court Friday, Patrick said the inconsistencies are
significant to the defense.
"I think the way it was set up, the defendant
was going to come into court and get slaughtered," he said. "It
seems as if the witnesses are changing their stories. I see
Wood, however, said he was pleased with the first week of
"It's not unusual in child molestation cases
to have inconsistent evidence because you are dealing with
children," he said. "We'll have more than the victims'
Two witnesses have identified what they described
as a sex toy, a stuffed Pink Panther with male genitalia sewed
on it. An FBI agent testified earlier that the item was found in
York, 58, is facing 13 counts of child molestation and
racketeering. He is head of the United Nuwabian Nation of Moors,
a quasi-religious sect which moved to a 467-acre neo-Egyptian
compound in Putnam County in 1993.
The group has changed form several times from its beginnings as
a Muslim group in Brooklyn, N.Y. The group dressed as cowboys
when it moved to Putnam County, and has most recently dressed as
American Indians, claiming to be an Indian tribe and York a
chief. He has also claimed to be an angel and alien from the
The trial will resume Monday, and prosecutors expect to finish
their case by Thursday or Friday. Patrick said the defense will
call witnesses to refute not only the molestation allegations,
but also the testimony of the alleged victims about squalid
living conditions on the compound.
When reading this article you will see that
the government manufactured this case and the Federal government
according to the Lead Prosecutor is trying a CHILD MOLESTATION
CASE which is a violation against Dr. Malachi Z York-EL. In the
beginning The Federal Government's reason for trying Dr. York
was interstate commerce, not child molestation according to this
interview with the news media Mr. Woods admit to the public that
this is a child molestation case which is a state offense not a
So we are seeing the way the FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT is RAILROADING Dr. York.
The proof is in the media, that the
government allowed in the courtroom.
Another form of transcripts the
Wayne Crenshaw writes as if the 16 year old
alleged victim is one of the children that was kidnapped off of
the Yamassee's land but that is not so, because all 5 of the children
that was kidnapped all testified that they were never molested
by Dr. York or any of the co-defendants and maintained this from
the day they was kidnapped up until they sat in the witness box, so beware of the yellow
journalism that the government and the media click promotes.
Look how the media promotes all kind of
beliefs instead of revealing the facts.
Ques: Is this about what the
Nuwaubians believe or is this about a crime that was alleged?
Ques: Why don't the media stick
to the facts of what happened in the courtroom instead of
jumping around in the doctrine of the Nuwaubians?

"For the second time in the trial, Patrick accused U.S. District
Court Judge Ashley Royal of helping the prosecution and asked
that Royal remove himself from the case. Prior to the girl's
testimony, Royal called attorneys from both sides to the bench.
After a conference, Patrick stated in open court that Royal had
told him not to ask the girl about her mother's testimony that
the girl had a problem with lying. Patrick said the judge should
not have made that ruling without the prosecution requesting it.
"The court is clearly acting defacto as a prosecutor," he said.
Royal declined to step down.
"I'm surprised you don't understand the role a judge has in a
trial," he said. "You simply don't understand basic rules of
Royal later cited a rule that a judge has a duty to protect
witnesses from "unnecessary embarrassment."
