    UTAH JUSTICE TV OPENS THE COURT TO THE PEOPLE

     

    Judge Robin Reese granted Media Access to the Motions Hearing in STATE v BALFOUR on Wednesday August 20th at the Scott Matheson Third District Court in Salt Lake City, Utah. According to Ozwald Balfour, who is Self-Represented, “I am among an increasing number people who are defending ourselves, In Propria Persona. We are creating serious problems for the courts as it is considerably more difficult for courts to rob enlightened individuals of their rights. Judge Reese delayed my Hearing for almost an hour. A court appointed defense attorney was summoned to the Hearing even though I made abundantly clear that I am Self-Represented”

     

    Balfour, a former Utah Republican Party operative is defending himself against sex charges stemming from false allegations made against him in 2005 by several women with questionable motives and character. Balfour claims this case is clearly an abuse of the Judicial System, Malicious Prosecution and Double Jeopardy, since he pled No Contest and was sentenced to 90 days in Jail by Judge Ann Boyden in 2010 on charges related to the same case.


    Earlier this year, Balfour who produced a documentary entitled, BUNDY v BLM about the cattle rancher’s standoff with the BLM in Bunkerville, Nevada. Balfour says, “Meeting Cliven Bundy, a man who stood up to the government, joining the National Liberty Alliance to help reinstate Common Law Grand Juries in every country in America and diligent studying of Common Law gives me the confidence to take on the injustice system.”


    In 2011, Balfour filed a Post-Conviction Remedy Petition to have his sentence overturned based on Ineffective Assistance of Counsel. His attorney Keith Hamilton, the first Black to graduate from the BYU Law School is alleged to have told Balfour to accept the plea because Hamilton was busy authoring a book on Blacks and the Mormon Priesthood and did not prepare for trial. Balfour’s Petition is still before the court.


    Part 1 of the series, STATE v BALFOUR – Motions Hearing, videotaped by Utah Justice TV, Balfour Confidently argues against the States Motions.
