FULL-FRONTAL CORRUPTION CHARGE AT THE FULTON COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND GRAND JURY
by William Windsor of Lawless America
(May 7, 2011) — This is HUGE news, and what I did may be a template that others will wish to follow to do the same thing. One thing is for sure, I believe THIS is something that every aggrieved person should try to accomplish. No cost. All it takes is a little time.
Read this story.
On Friday, May 6, 2011 at 9:00 am, a courier hand-delivered a letter to the Fulton County District Attorney, the receptionist guard dog at the front of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, and each of the 23 members of the Fulton County Grand Jury that was then in session.
The purpose of this was to bypass the people who block access to the Grand Jury.
Read how it was done, and DO IT YOURSELF! Feel free to modify these letters for your use….
UPDATE, May 6, 2011 — 11:30 am
It has been an interesting morning. The courier called at 9:30 am to say that the District Attorney’s Office was doing legal research to determine whether my letters to the Grand Jurors would be delivered to them. At 11:00 am, I advised him to leave and ask the receptionist to have me called once they reached a decision.
I immediately faxed a letter to the District Attorney advising him that he and his office had no legal basis to interfere with the courier and that the District Attorney’s Office has no power and no rights relative to the Grand Jury.
At 11:30 am, an Assistant District Attorney called me to ask that I have the courier return with the envelopes because a Deputy Sheriff would accept the envelopes and give them to each Grand Juror. The envelopes were accepted at 3: 44 pm. At 4:30 pm, Deputy Sheriff Betts called me to confirm that he had received the envelopes and that he will present them to each Grand Juror when they return on Tuesday.
THIS IS FANTASTIC! I have accomplished my mission. And to all of you, this means this is a technique that you can use to reach a grand jury. Folks, this is HUGE NEWS!
Most people who try to reach a grand jury with their charges against corrupt judges and corrupt government officials never make it past the “guards.” In my case, the District Attorney totally ignored my letters detailing my criminal charges. In Fulton County, the Grand Jury Room is behind locked doors inside the District Attorney’s office — even though distirct attorneys have no power or authority whatsoever over the grand juries! The receptionist is surly, and it was clear to me that her job is to give as little information as possible and keep people away.
So, here is my Plan of Attack:
The Grand Jury is in session on Tuesdays and Fridays starting at 8:30 am. At 9:00 am, my courier shows up with 25 sealed envelopes and a loose letter to the receptionist. The courier’s instructions are to give the receptionist two envelopes with letters to the Fulton County District Attorney and theFulton County Employee responsible for the Grand Jury with the cover letter to the receptionist. The courier will ask the receptionist to read the letter that I have addressed to to her:
The courier is delivering one PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL envelope for each member of the Grand Jury. Please ensure that these envelopes are personally delivered to each grand juror. I would like to have the courier deliver each one and obtain a signature from each grand juror. If this is not possible, we will take your signature.
BUT LET ME WARN YOU: MAKE SURE THESE ARE GIVEN TO EACH GRAND JUROR. I WILL CONSIDER FAILURE TO DO SO TO BE A VIOLATION OF MY RIGHTS, AND I WILL TAKE LEGAL ACTION TO PROTECT MY RIGHTS.
These envelopes contain nothing related to any matter before the Grand Jury at this time. The envelopes do contain information about criminal charges against the Fulton County District Attorney and certain federal judges operating in Fulton County, Georgia.
Please call me to confirm delivery to each grand juror. If I do not receive such confirmation, I will come to your office to speak with the grand jurors as they enter and leave your office. If the grand jurors report that they did not receive the Personal and Confidential envelope from me, I will call the police and pursue all legal remedies available to me.
Please call me. I carry my cell phone at all times – 404-###-####.
William M. Windsor
The important thing to me about this letter is that it puts the receptionist on notice. She is being told in writing (and I will have a signature of receipt obtained by the courier) that this is PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL information that she has a legal obligation to have delivered directly to the grand jurors.
Letter to Fulton County District Attorney
Mr. Paul Howard, Jr.
Fulton County District Attorney
136 Pryor Street – Third Floor
Atlanta, GA 30303-3477
Dear Mr. Howard:
I wrote to you in February asking you to advise the grand jury that they have the power to investigate the criminal acts of nine federal judges in Atlanta. This is one of the most serious issues that our country has ever faced. You ignored my letter and these criminal acts. This is a violation of 18 U.S.C.§4, and I am today approaching the Grand Jury directly to investigate violation of this statute by you and your office as well as the criminal charges against federal judges operating in Fulton County, Georgia.
As you are well aware, you and your office have no authority over the grand jury. I am at this time delivering Personal and Confidential letters to each member of the Grand Jury. If you or anyone with Fulton County interferes with the delivery of these envelopes, I believe you will be committing additional crimes.
It is your responsibility to ensure that these envelopes are delivered. Please ask someone to call me to confirm that these were placed into the hands of each Grand Juror. If I do not receive such confirmation, I will come to your office to speak with the grand jurors as they enter and leave your office. If the grand jurors report that they did not receive the Personal and Confidential envelope from me, I will call the police.
Please call me. I carry my cell phone at all times – 404-xxx-xxxx.
William M. Windsor
Enclosure: February 2011 Letter
The important thing to me about this letter is that I am putting the District Attorney on notice that I believe he is violating the law by ignoring my complaints of criminal violations. By advising him that I will be asking the Grand Jury to investigate him and his office, I am hoping that this stops the DA from trying to interfere. If he blocks my attempts to have him investigated, it’s even worse than if he simply blocks my complaints against the judges.
Letter to the Grand Jurors
May 6, 2011
Grand Jury Members
136 Pryor Street – Third Floor
Atlanta, GA 30303-3477
Dear Grand Jury Members:
I need your help. Your loved ones and our children and grandchildren need your help. What has happened to me can happen to you and your loved ones. Government corruption is one of the most serious issues that our county and our country have ever faced, and believe it or not, the Fulton County Grand Jury may be our only hope to do something about it.
I am just a fairly normal 62-year old retired father and grandfather. I pay my taxes. We go to Peachtree Presbyterian Church. I’ve never been arrested or accused of committing a crime. I haven’t even had a traffic or parking ticket in over 10 years. I have never used drugs of any type. I drive my granddaughter’s carpool one day a week. I’m as honest and law-abiding a citizen as you will meet. I sold a business in 2001 and took early retirement. We moved to Fulton County to be near our daughter in anticipation that there would be grandchildren, and we have been rewarded with three granddaughters!
I always thought that courts were fair. I always thought that judges were honest. Sadly, I now know that some of the federal judges working in Fulton County are as crooked as pretzels. They commit criminal acts while hiding behind their robes. I am far from the only person who has experienced this. I have been contacted by many thousands of people since I set up a website to expose the corruption.
What all of this means to you is that I am writing to ask you to allow me to speak to the Grand Jury. I have proof of numerous criminal acts by federal judges in Fulton County.
I have been trying to get this information to a jury for over five years. Due to the nature of the information that I have to present to you – government corruption, various government officials have done everything they can to block me from reaching you. My claims have been presented to the U.S. Attorney, FBI, Attorney General, and every member of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, but they have ignored it all. They haven’t ignored it because it isn’t true; they have ignored it because they are covering up for the corrupt judges. My letters to your Grand Jury have apparently been intercepted. My attempts to get the District Attorney’s office to allow me to speak to you have been ignored.
So, I have resorted to showing up here outside your meeting room to try to reach some of you personally.
You will be absolutely shocked and appalled when you see and hear the evidence that I have. You will discover that the rights you thought you had as a citizen do not exist with some federal judges in Fulton County.
You have the power to allow me to speak to you.
I will take as little or as much time as you choose to give me. I am convinced that if you listen to me for five minutes, you will want to see and hear more.
Your grand jury has the power of Presentment, as provided in the Bill of Rights — 5th Article of Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a Presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury….”
A Presentment is an accusation of an offense, made by a grand jury on its own, upon its own observation and knowledge, or upon evidence before it, and without any bill of indictment laid before it by the government. Upon a Presentment from a grand jury, the proper officer of the court must frame an indictment.
From your experience as a grand juror, you know that government officials (Assistant District Attorneys) have prepared indictments and have given them to your grand jury for consideration. But a Presentment is different because the Presentment originates in the grand jury. The grand jury discovers an offense on its own. It observes and collects evidence of the offense, and the government has nothing to do with it. The grand jury is independent. An indictment is then based on the Presentment.
The District Attorney’s Office cannot tell you what to do or not do. The District Attorney has no power over the Grand Jury as you are absolutely independent. See the attached case law if you want proof of this. It is vital that you understand that YOU and YOU ALONE have the power to do what you want to do. The District Attorney’s Office has no power whatsoever over you!
In United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 at 47 (1992), Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court: “the grand jury is not part of the three branches of government set forth in the Constitution” – Justice Scalia also says the grand jury “is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside.”
Your obligation is to call me to provide testimony and proof of these criminal violations. You will then have the ability to subpoena the judges. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says this is your obligation. You also have a legal obligation pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§4 to report these crimes to law enforcement authorities. I enclose a copy of that statute as well as some additional information on me.
Please call me. I carry my cell phone at all times – 404-xxx-xxxx. I can testify at any time.
William M. Windsor
Note: I did not provide the Receptionist or the District Attorney with a copy of the letter to the Grand Jurors. I did not want them to know what I was sending PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL to the Grand Jurors. The less they know, the better chance they might not try to interfere.
Case Law on Grand Jury Powers
I also included a page with this information:
High Court Justice Lewis Powell, in United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338, 343 (1974), said this: “The institution of the grand jury is deeply rooted in Anglo-American history. [n3] In England, the grand jury [p343] served for centuries both as a body of accusers sworn to discover and present for trial persons suspected of criminal wrongdoing and as a protector of citizens against arbitrary and oppressive governmental action. In this country, the Founders thought the grand jury so essential to basic liberties that they provided in the Fifth Amendment that federal prosecution for serious crimes can only be instituted by “a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury.” Cf. Costello v. United States, 350 U.S. 359, 361-362 (1956). The grand jury’s historic functions survive to this day. Its responsibilities continue to include both the determination whether there is probable cause to believe a crime has been committed and the protection of citizens against unfounded criminal prosecutions. Branzburg v. Hayes, 408 U.S. 665, 686-687 (1972).”
So the grand jury has two purposes, says Justice Powell: deciding whether a crime has been committed and protecting the citizen from the government. In United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 at 47 (1992), Justice Antonin Scalia, delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court:
“[R]ooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history,” Hannah v. Larche, 363 U. S. 420, 490 (1960) (Frankfurter, J., concurring in result), the grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It “‘is a constitutional fixture in its own right.’” United States v. Chanen, 549 F. 2d 1306, 1312 (CA9) (quoting Nixon v. Sirica, 159 U. S. App. D. C. 58, 70, n. 54, 487 F. 2d 700, 712, n. 54 (1973)), cert. denied, 434 U. S. 825 (1977).”
So, since the grand jury is not part of the three branches of government set forth in the Constitution – Justice Scalia also says the grand jury “is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside.” – it is perfectly reasonable to characterize the grand jury as the “fourth branch of government.”
In the same place, Justice Scalia says this: “. . . In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. See Stirone v. United States, 361 U.S. 212, 218 (1960); Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43, 61 (1906); G. Edwards, The Grand Jury 28-32 (1906). Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the Judicial Branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. See United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338, 343 (1974); Fed.Rule Crim.Proc. 6(a). [504 U.S. 36, 48]”
Notice! The only thing the judge should do, says the Supreme Court, is assemble the grand jurors and swear them in. That’s all! Again, the court does not preside over it. The grand jury goes to work “as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people.” The grand jury protects the people. It oversees the government. It does that by investigating the government, by rooting out government corruption.
About Me – William M. Windsor
I included a page with my photo and this brief bio:
I am just a reasonably normal 62-year-old husband, father, and grandfather. Barbara and I have been married for 40 years. Our daughter has two girls, and our son has one.
I am best described as a serial entrepreneur. I have started over 50 companies in my 42-year career. I began my career as a junior at Texas Tech University in 1969. I became involved in the T-shirt business, and after eight years as a retailer, wholesaler, and manufacturer, I launched the trade magazine and trade show for the industry in 1977. I am considered by many to be the father of the multi-billion dollar “imprinted sportswear industry.” I started other magazines and shows, and sold the company in 1981.
I have owned and/or operated many magazines and trade shows, travel businesses, retail stores, manufacturing companies, printing company, typesetting business, advertising agency, marketing companies, convention services businesses, souvenir and gift businesses, tourist attractions, resort businesses, music businesses, computer software company, a consulting company, a food franchise, internet businesses, and more. I have written numerous articles, books, training programs, and manuals. I have spoken at conferences and trade shows across North America and in Europe, Australia, and China.
From 1992 to 1996, I was President of Advanstar Expositions, a company owned at the time by Goldman Sachs. Advanstar was one of the largest producers of trade shows and conferences in the world. From 1996 to 2001, I was CEO of 1st Communications, a company owned by Bain Capital, Triumph Capital Group, and me. 1st Communications made a series of multi-million dollar acquisitions to build one of the largest trade show businesses — the largest in terms of the number of annual events. 1st Communications also developed one of the first online job and resume businesses using a network of over 1,000 web sites. That business was sold to The Washington Post in 2001, and I “retired” to Atlanta, Georgia to be near grandchildren-to-be.
I discovered corruption in the federal courts in Fulton County, Georgia, and I will not stop until these judges are exposed and other citizens are protected from the corrupt courts. My friends will tell you that I am as tenacious as they come. I will spend the rest of my life on this if necessary.
I included a photo because I wanted them to see that I don’t appear to be a nutcase. I wanted them to know a little about me, because I believe it will be harder for nice, honest people to turn away someone who they may feel some type of connection with. I suggest adding even more details about your background. Leave out anything that could be controversial.
William S. Duffey
Since the phone rang with confirmation that my letters were given to each Grand Juror, my mission has been accomplished. Now it’s up to the 23 Grand Jurors. Surely they will grant me at least five minutes to present a summary of my charges.
If I had not received that confirmation, I would have mailed certified letters return receipt to each of the 24 grand jurors (Grand Juror #1, Grand Juror #2, etc. c/o Fulton County District Attorney’s Office – Grand Jury Room. That way, if someone interfered with the personal and confidential mail, I would ask the U.S. Postal Service to become involved. I would also have gone down to the public lobby outside the grand jury room on Tuesday at 8:30 am when the Grand Jury was next in session. I would have handed my letters to everyone I saw, and I would plead my case to any grand juror who would stop for a second.
Surely one of these efforts will work. If not, my only remaining option was to go door-to-door to every elected county official’s office until I get someone to sign my petition. If the Grand Jurors do not grant me an audience, I will do this because the end result would be the impaneling of a Special Grand Jury solely for the purpose of investigating my charges.
On the afternoon of may 6, 2011, I began efforts to try to get the judge recused in one of my cases. This judge, William S. Duffey, has violated every manner of my Constitutional rights, and I am not even allowed to file anything except a 5-page or less REQUEST to file something (none of which he grants). So, I sent a Request for Specific Approval to file a Motion to Recuse Judge William S. Duffey because the Fulton County Grand Jury is now considering criminal charges filed against him by me. he’ll probably ignore it AGAIN, but that will just be added to my huge list of his violations.
Article of Amendment V of the Bill of Rights gives grand juries the power of Presentment. In a Presentment, the grand jury independently brings charges, usually against corrupt government officials. So my effort is pursuant to the Grand Jury’s power of Presentment.

Update, May 7, 2011:
Windsor accused of Forgery by Federal Judge William S. Duffey
Judge William S. Duffey of the United States District Court Judge for the Northern District of Georgia has accused William M. Windsor of the crime of forgery. The accusation was made in an order issued on May 4, 2011 — just days after Judge Duffey received notice that the Fulton County Grand Jury would be reviewing Windsor’s criminal charges against Judge Duffey. Hmmm….
The penalty for forgery in Georgia is 1 to 10 years in prison…
FORGERY is a felony…a serious criminal offense.
There are a lot of interesting things about this besides the fact that it is ridiculous as my wife signed, and I would never signh anyone else’s name or so or do anything in court that isn’t 100% factual.
Interesting Issue #1
Let’s start with the way it has been handled. Judge Duffey issued an order with no discussion whatsoever with Windsor. How about scheduling a conference and asking: “Hey, did you sign your wife’s name? Or “can you show me your wife’s drivers license or other proof of her signature?” Judge Duffey only raised his accusation through an Order that he emailed to Windsor on May 4, 2011.
Interesting Issue #2
Then there’s the complete void of due process. He has accused me of a crime — a felony. I could go to prison for 10 years. Well, the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure are very clear on this.
Rule 3 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure requires that the complaint be a written statement of the essential facts constituting the offense charged. It must be made under oath before a magistrate judge or, if none is reasonably available, before a state or local judicial officer. The Accused have not received this.
Accused Forgeror Windsor has not been served with a Summons as per Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
A Preliminary Hearing must be held as required by Rule 5.1 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
A Pretrial Conference has not been held as per Rule 17.1 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
Judge Duffey has previously issued orders that deny Windsor the fundamental due process right to file motions and papers with the Court. Windsor can only file 5-page or less “requests” to file something.
Windsor has filed a request asking that Judge Duffey be disqualified. Judge Duffey will be a witness in this trial, and this issue involves severe criticism of Judge Duffey as a judge. As a result, he is disqualified from presiding at the trial and hearings unless Windsor consents, and he does not consent. (See Caperton v. A. T. Massey Coal Co., Inc., 129 S.Ct. 2252, 173 L.Ed.2d 1208 (U.S. 06/08/2009).) Windsor has requested approval to file a response and has requested approval to file a motion demanding his rights to due process. Windsor has also filed a request for approval to file a motion to order the Clerk of the Court to issue subpoenas for Windsor. Windsor has to have subpoenas to ghet witnesses to appear at the hearing, but the Clerk of the Court has refused to issue any subpoenas for Windsor for several years. In the two hearings held during that time period, Windsor (representing himself) was denied the most basic fundamental right to call witnesses or cross-examine witnesses.
On Monday, Windsor will submit a request for approval to file a demand for a jury trial.
Interesting Issue #3
This order was entered just after Judge Duffey received notice that the Fulton County Grand Jury would be considering criminal charges against him that were made by William M. Windsor.
Interesting Issue #4
I don’t believe anyone in their right mind would say that William M. Windsor’s handwriting could be confused with Barbara Windsor’s handwriting.
Here’s a contract signed by both of the Windsors.
Here’s William M. Windsor’s signature on hundreds of documents filed wuith the Court.
Here’s Barbara Windsor’s signature on documents filed with the Court.
Here are notarized signatures of both Windsors.
Interesting Issue #5
Judge Duffey has previously ordered the Windsors to produce various documents on May 13…the same date he has now required them to prepare for and appear in court. The Windsors submitted a request to file a motion for an extension of time. Judge Duffey has not granted this.
Interesting Issue #6
The Windsors have filed appeals on all of Judge Duffey‘s latest orders. Based upon both Georgia law and the federal rules, the matter should be stayed. Nothing further should be done until the appeal is resolved. Judge Duffey has made this clear in orders he has issued in other cases. But Judge Duffey is ignoring the law again as he refuses to honor the stay.
It will be interesting to see what Judge Duffey does before the 13th, if anything. I’d like to encourage everyone in the Atlanta area to come to the U.S. Courthouse, 75 Spring Street, Atlanta — courtroom of Judge William S. Duffey if there is a hearing Friday the 13th at 11:00 am. I will want all the witnesses that I can get to try to keep him a little more honest than he would be if there are no witnesses.
Judge Duffey is as corrupt as they get! Dishonest Duffey. This miserable excuse needs to be indicted and put away for a long, long time!
