REINCARCERATED SINCE PEARL HARBOR DAY
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 10, 2012) — The Post & Email has confirmed that Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III was released from the Monroe County jail at approximately 10:20 p.m. ET last night, February 9, 2012.
In a brief telephone conversation today, Fitzpatrick stated that he will be seeking medical attention for pain in both shoulders from having “slept on a concrete floor for 18 weeks.”
He stated that his blood sugar is in a healthy range for what he described as “pre-diabetes,” and reiterated that the nurses at the jail, who are employed by Southern Health Partners, were outstanding. We are aware of the specific blood sugar readings and will not release them because of the personal nature of the information, but this writer is very familiar with diabetes and is satisfied that Fitzpatrick’s blood sugar is not in a dangerous range according to his report.
Fitzpatrick stated that “There is a lot to tell.” He is taking care of some personal business today. He sounded tired but well.
He was released on December 3, 2011 after serving time for assault and resisting arrest from an October 27, 2010 incident, but rearrested on December 7, 2011 for allegedly stealing court documents and under-serving his last sentence imposed on September 23, 2011.
This writer was a guest on February 9, 2012 to Dr. James David Manning of The Manning Report to discuss Fitzpatrick’s imminent release as well as the events which led up to his several incarcerations in the Monroe County jail since April 1, 2010. The conditions in the jail and grand jury corruption were also topics of discussion.
A Writ of Habeas Corpus has been filed with the U.S. District Court in Knoxville, TN. The Post & Email contacted the clerk of the court, who confirmed that the normal procedure for a Habeas Corpus Writ is to “open the case and forward the Habeas to the law clerk,” which she stated has been done with Fitzpatrick’s Writ. Anyone wishing to contact the court in support of the timely review of the Habeas petition may do so by writing to:
Ms. Angela Archer, Clerk of the Court
U.S. District Court
Howard H. Baker, Jr. United States Courthouse
800 Market Street, Suite 130
Knoxville, TN 37902
Citizens may also call the clerk of the court at (865) 545-4228, but are requested to do so only once daily and to be very respectful. When writing or calling, citizens are asked to reference case number 312CV48. The Habeas is an active petition even though Fitzpatrick has been released from jail.
