BREAKING: Dixie County FL Whistleblower Arrested - Reporting a Crime is Now Deemed Criminal Activity
Terry Trussell, a resident of Dixie County and a husband, father and Vietnam Veteran, was asked to serve as the Foreman of the Dixie County Grand Jury for a 6 month term, ending on October 19, 2014. As he did in the Army several decades ago, Terry answered the call once again and swore an Oath to protect and defend the Constitution.
In accordance with his oath and the instructions provided at the outset of his term and upon being made aware of criminal activity occurring within Dixie County, he attempted to convene a meeting of the Dixie County Grand Jury to present evidence and invoke the Grand Jury's Presentment power as granted in the 5th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and supported by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1992.
On Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014, however, Terry Trussell was arrested and taken to jail.
Reporting a Crime is Now Considered Criminal Activity!
Terry Trussell had the responsibility and duty to his Oath of Office to convene the Grand Jury and present the evidence to and hear witnesses with, if applicable, the other jurors.
Upon contacting the County Clerk to begin the process of convening the Grand Jury it was reported that he was met with resistance and interference. Terry filed a Bill of Information on Tuesday, August 5th at the Dixie County Clerk of Court detailing his interactions with State Attorney, Jeffrey A. Siegmeister.
The Bill of Information, notarized and stamped received by Clerk of the Court, Dana Johnson, lists several infractions committed by State Attorney, Jeffrey A. Siegmeister.
In violation of Rule 4.1 of the Florida Grand Jury Instructions which outlines the "DUTIES OF THE FOREPERSON: To preside over your sessions and see that they are carried on in an orderly fashion", it was reported by Terry Trussell, the Grand Jury Foreperson, that State Attorney Jeffrey A. Siegmeister refused to relinquish control of the meeting.
The conclusion of the Dixie County Grand Jury Foreman's Bill of Information states, "Therefore, as the Grand Jury Foreman, I, Terry G. Trussell, have no confidence in the Grand Jury Process under these rules and as corrupted by State Attorney, Jeffery Siegmeister. I, Terry Trussell, therefore declare this Grand Jury in Dixie County, Florida un-lawful, Null and Void ab initio. Nothing has been done by the State Attorney Jeffery Siegmeister which complies to the Grand Jury Process as is demanded by the 5th nor 7th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution nor the explanation of Justice Scalia in U.S. v. Williams."
As Florida is a Common Law state, the people of Dixie County met to elect 25 jurors and the People's Grand Jury Under Common Law in Dixie County subsequently met in the Dixie County Courthouse, heard evidence and issued two (2) True Bills of Presentment.
One of the True Bills of Presentment charged State Attorney Jeffrey A. Siegmeister with Obstruction of Justice and Tampering with the Jury.
In a clear effort to retaliate against Terry Trussell's Bill of Information and the True Bill of Presentment which charged the State Attorney with serious and unlawful activity, Siegmeister filed a Petition to remove the Foreman from his responsibilities on the Dixie County Grand Jury. Judge Greg Parker granted his petition and removed Terry from the Grand Jury.
Several days later, Terry Trussell was arrested and charged with "simulating a legal process."
"The searching eye and inquiring mind of the grand jury is an effective deterrent to evil and corruption; no officer or agency of government is above or beyond the reach of the grand jury."
- Was State Attorney Jeffrey A. Siegmeister trying to cover up unlawful activity?
- Did Siegmeister have the Grand Jury Foreman removed in retaliation for being charged with Obstruction of Justice and Tampering with the Jury?
- Is our current Statutory / Puppet Grand Jury designed to avoid investigating government corruption?
- When our current Statutory / Puppet Grand Jury system ignores the Constitution of the United States, ignores centuries of Common Law, ignores the Supreme Court and defies the will of the people, aren't they the ones that should be charged with "simulating a legal process?"
- When a member of the public reports a crime, is our current system designed to protect the criminals?
- Is reporting a crime now considered criminal activity?

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury"
PRESENTMENT - A charge the grand jury brings on its own initiative. (More at Black's Law)
INDICTMENT - A charge brought to a grand jury by a prosecutor for approval. (More at Black's Law).
GRAND JURY - A group of citizens (25 by Common Law) that decides if the case before them, either by their own initiative and investigation or by a prosecutor, has sufficient evidence to call for a trial. (More at Black's Law, Magna Carta, Wikipedia).
Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority opinion in the 1992 Supreme Court case, U.S. vs Williams (use this link to see all references), clearly stated:
"The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation,..."
"And in its day to day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses, and deliberates in total secrecy."
"Even in this setting, however, we have insisted that the grand jury remain "free to pursue its investigations unhindered by external influence or supervision so long as it does not trench upon the legitimate rights of any witness called before it."
"Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said that the Fifth Amendment's "constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body `acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge'. . . ."
"SECTION 1. Political power.—All political power is inherent in the people. The enunciation herein of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or impair others retained by the people."
"TITLE 1 CHAPTER 2.01 - Common law and certain statutes declared in force.—The common and statute laws of England which are of a general and not a local nature, with the exception hereinafter mentioned, down to the 4th day of July, 1776, are declared to be of force in this state; provided, the said statutes and common law be not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the acts of the Legislature of this state."
"Rule 9.2, in part, - "...do solemnly swear (or affirm) that you will diligently inquire into all matters put in your charge and you will make true presentments of your findings..."
"Rule 7.2 - The law provides that, if a grand juror knows or has reason to believe that an indictable offense triable in this county has been committed, the juror shall declare that fact to the other jurors for investigation. Individually, a juror may receive information but that information shall be reported immediately to the foreperson or the state attorney (or the statewide prosecutor) for investigation if it is of interest to the grand jury or relevant to its investigations."
"Rule 4.1 - DUTIES OF THE FOREPERSON: To preside over your sessions and see that they are carried on in an orderly fashion; appoint your clerk at your first session;..."
"Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."
