Mr. ABRAM TUVOV – AA member of 20 years – Convicted of four counts of Felony Rape in Palm Springs last month yet still is out free. Is AA that powerful – Are AA members part of a secret untouchable society ? What gives?

FACTS – Abram Tuvov – member of Alcoholics Anonymous for 20 + years we heard in court, resides in Palm Springs and known in Santa Monica AA,  ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS meetings and its community was convicted last month of four counts of Felony Rape charges.

Jane Doe contacted us after the rape occurred in late November 2014 and she became frustrated with the way the case was being handled by Palm Springs Police Department.

Last month I sat in court for a day to listen and support the  victim on the witness stand. She was brave and honest.

He was convicted by a JURY of his peers. Yet Abram Tuvov walked out of the courthouse a free man. OK – so they gave him 30 days to get his affairs together. So what happened here on Wednesday?

The Judge –Otis Sterling, gave him those 30 days to do this.

BUT >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>He showed up on Wednesday  March 13th, 2018 in Indio, CA Court House, located at 46200 Oasis St. Indio, CA 92201. Room 2G   TUVOV   saying ” he fired his lawyer”! So now what happens. He had a trial. They found him guilty.  —- what is going on here. Why is he not in jail? He will walk around free for over two months even though he was found guilty as charged ====++++++

Facts :

CASE # INF1600703-  call 760-393-2617

The rape occurred November 2014.

Samantha Paxio is the DA/ District Attorney defending the Victim – Jane Doe.

The judge gave him 60 more days. They will be back in court May 23, 2018 .

Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller of the Sex Crimes Division prosecuted the case.

Bathum owned and operated Community Recovery of Los Angeles and other entities in Southern California and Colorado.

Evidence presented at trial showed that Bathum preyed upon female patients between 2014 and 2016 by providing them with drugs as they battled to overcome their addiction. He then sexually assaulted them while they were under the influence, the prosecutor said.

The victims’ ages range from their 20s to their early 30s. Several of the assaults happened at the facilities that he ran.

Case BA451669 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

NOTE: It was reported t me that Chris Bathum said he was in Recovery, which in many cases means he was in AA- Still not verified this — meaning people knew him from AA – took them to AA meetings in VANS – how was AA involved with him.  I am going to the Civil trial and sentencing so I will learn the answer to this question.

#TIMESUP #METOO # Sexual Harassment in AA Alcoholics Anonymous will our voices be heard?

After many months of exposing so many men and institutions with Horrific and some criminal Rape like with Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey we are wondering if we who have been sexually harassed ( 13 Stepped ) some raped – will be heard in Mainstream Media and Newspapers.

This must Happen.

AA Alcoholics Anonymous must  be outed the same way, Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Louis C K, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, and  many more have been.

Barry Hazle sued The State of CA, Probation and The Treatment Center he was forced to.

This is an older but VERY Important STORY. Please listen to this podcast of Barry Hazle and John Heller his attorney. AMAZING story. Hazle VS B Crow Foote

  1. He complained to the counselors there.
  2. Then went over his head and complained to the program director
  3. Grieved through his parole officer
  4. asked what did he have to do to have his rights respected
  5. He was told to do a 602- a form for inmate grievances and attach a piece a paper with  all his issues. His 602 was denied. Told he had to go back to prison.
  6. Understanding our 1st Amendment is key
  7. Found all the cases he could find that showed violations of 1 st amendment cases and treatment.
  8. He wrote down everything he could remember from start to finish. He feels it was key to winning the lawsuit. Documenting everything.
  9. The best thing that represents the problems he had with AA, is that they had issued you a Big Book ( WestCare – in Redding )
  10. They told him its spiritual not religious! Barry said “they mean the same damn thing “
  11. West Care get $4,000-$5,000 an inmate .
  12. The Establishment clause protects all people from any religious persuasion.
  13. Is there some type of state action involved? The State was requiring him to go . John Heller , attorney said.
  14. Is he compelled? Yes – the element to participate was present. That’s what the establishment clause protects us from.
  15. HAZELTON is a huge publishing huge arm for pushing AA literature.
  16. They went to trial in Sacramento in 2010. West Care was in the lawsuit. They only contracted with 12 step programs.
  17. They went to the next trial in the higher court. That Barry Was entitled to some sort of settlement.
  18. In discovery -They did hear from WEST CARE that 12 step was not religious.  Not true. But they kept saying this.
  19. Chapter 4 in the Big Book The Agnostics.
  20. West Care is a non profit.

Lorain Cop gets 3 years of 3 AA meetings a week instead of Jail time!

Maybe not a good idea. Why not send him to jail and give him anger management classes. What if this officer doesnt  like AA and he just used this as an excuse. What if AA makes him crazier – because we know that no cop out there is POWERLESS> Geez – I wish I could talk to him, his wife, his lawyer and the judge.

He was already sent to AA and 12 step REHAB – it says in 2014 – I guess AA Failed him. So try something else. How are we going to stop this ? http://www.chroniclet.com/Local-News/2017/04/18/Lorain-officer-has-a-number-of-previous-alcohol-related-incidents-on-file.html

Lorain officer sentenced, keeps job…http://www.chroniclet.com/Local-News/2017/07/22/Lorain-officer-sentenced-keeps-job.html

LORAIN — A Lorain police officer will spend five days in jail after pleading no contest Friday to a charge of disorderly conduct persisting. He will be allowed to remain on the police force.

Officer James O. Connell appeared before Lorain Municipal Court Judge Mark Mihok for the hearing, during which his original charge of domestic violence was amended to disorderly conduct persisting. He will report to jail Sunday.

Connell was sentenced to three years’ probation and will have to attend meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous twice a week for those three years, periodically meet with Mihok and undergo random drug and alcohol testing. He also signed a last-chance agreement with Lorain police that stipulates he will immediately be terminated from his job if he violates probation in the next three years.

James Connell’s attorney, J. Anthony Rich, told Mihok his client is a good officer who has a drinking problem. Rich said Connell chose not to go to trial to spare his wife and fellow officers the grief of having to testify against “one of their own.”

“He’s able to salvage his career and keep his career moving forward at this point,” Rich said. “He’s a proud officer, he’s a good officer, and I think this was an unfortunate event we have to take responsibility for, which he has.”

Connell told Mihok he intends to stay sober and continue attending Alcoholics Anonymous and counseling. He also said he has apologized to his wife and family, and he apologized to the court and the police department.

“I want to apologize for the embarrassment I have caused,” he said.

Nicole Connell told Mihok that since her husband got sober four months ago, he has become a better father and more involved in family life. She said she doesn’t want her husband to do any jail time but she understands the decision.

Nicole Connell said James Connell formerly had a beer fridge in his garage “man cave” that was full of beer. Today she said it is full of bottled water and he places his monthly sobriety tokens on it.

“Every time he goes to see (the refrigerator), he recognizes ‘I’m not going toward alcohol anymore; I’m going toward sobriety,’” she said.

Police have said an intoxicated James Connell attacked his wife in March in their home, where he tackled, punched and placed her in a chokehold after a birthday party for their 2-year-old son. The two got into an argument when Nicole Connell took James Connell’s phone because he was texting another woman.

Police reported that Nicole Connell hit her husband and at one point pushed him off of her, but he grabbed her again and put her in a chokehold. She said she felt herself start to lose consciousness, but James Connell released her before she passed out.

She told police she then ran toward the living room, but James Connell tackled her again and held her wrists while sitting on top of her. She said she continued to fight until James Connell let her up, and then called her father.

James Connell told police that he was “defending himself” and received scratches on his face and left hand during the encounter and asked his fellow officers to take photos of those injuries. The police report said Nicole Connell had swelling and bruising on her left arm, a raised red mark on her neck and a split lip with dried blood.

James Connell has since been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings regularly as well as meeting with a substance-abuse counselor and attending marriage counseling.

This wasn’t James Connell’s first alcohol-related incident. His personnel file shows he has had run-ins with fellow police officers in 2014 for walking around Lorain at night while intoxicated, riding an all-terrain vehicle in Lorain while intoxicated and driving in Garrettsville while intoxicated. In Garrettsville he was pulled over, but police took him and a friend to jail, allowed him to sober up and drive home later.

James Connell was never charged for any of those incidents, but he was ordered to undergo alcohol-addiction treatment after the last incident and received a three-day suspension from work that was held in abeyance on the condition of one year of good behavior.

James Connell also was required to report any contact with law enforcement within one hour of it happening and submit to random alcohol testing.

The personnel file also shows that Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera wrote it was clear to James Connell’s supervisors that he had a drinking problem. An earlier report in James Connell’s file noted he told the police department’s employee review board that it was the last incident in 2014 that convinced him to seek treatment and begin attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Lorain police Capt. Roger Watkins told Mihok that James Connell is a good police officer, and alcohol-related incidents in his personal life have not affected his job performance.

This ‘True Blood’ Actor’s Death Reveals a Hidden Danger of Addiction We Don’t Talk About

Actor Nelsan Ellis, who portrayed Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s “True Blood,” died from heart complications on Saturday, and now his family wants everyone to know why.

Ellis’ manager Emily Gerson Saines shared with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that his death came as a result of his attempt to quit alcohol.

I am so sorry to hear this news. They are saying he went to rehab many times and it failed him. Of course it did. True Blood has a stepper as one of its stars, a writer and I beleive one of the creators is a stepper. So can you imagine how they must have circled him and pushed him to their Failing rehabs like Betty Ford or Hazelton or where Mad Mens Star went.

My condolences to the family . SAD — so sad – must stop AA in Hollywood pushing AA horshit from 1935 .

Federal agents search Sovereign Health rehab in San Clemente, elsewhere

IF you or someone you love have been harmed in any way by a Rehab or Sober Living- we are listening. We are looking for people to speak out and tell this story to us and be recorded/Filmed.

Including will be any Pilot, Nurse or Doctor who was forced to join and go to AA meetings.

This madness must stop. Already the FBI has shut down 3 big rings in Californian, Florida and New Jersey. The Department of Justice have their eyes on these places now. Better now we all speak up.

So much for taking a break. Well- it starts on Tuesday – that  i mean , my break.  🙂
