Pentecost Comes Early For Ron

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

If you get next year’s calendar, and start counting days with day #1 being January 31, when you reach the count of day #50 you will be at March 20.  January 31 is the date that False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s criminal trial for tax evasion was scheduled during the arraignment.  March 20 is the new scheduled date determined yesterday afternoon during the hearing to consider Weinland’s motion to continue.  Note: in later court action, the trial was continued yet again, to June 4, 2012.

————-  Text of Judge’s Order ——————–

On December 12, 2011, this action was called for a hearing on the defendant’s motion to continue the trial scheduled to begin January 31, 2012. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Robert McBride. Defendant Ronald E. Weinland was present and represented by Robert Webb, retained counsel. The proceedings were recorded by official court reporter, Lisa Wiesman. The Court having heard counsel and being sufficiently advised, it is hereby ORDERED as follows:

1. The defendant’s motion to continue [Record No. 14] is GRANTED. The trial date of January 31, 2012, is vacated and the jury trial is rescheduled for March 20, 2012, beginning at 10:00 a.m., with counsel to be present at 9:30 a.m.

2. The pretrial conference previously scheduled for January 17, 2012, is continued until March 12, 2012, beginning at 3:30 p.m., at the United States Courthouse in Covington, Kentucky.

3. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv), the time period between January 31, 2012, and March 20, 2012, is excludable delay under the Speedy Trial Act. The Court finds that failure to grant a continuance of the length outlined above would deny the defendant reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. Further, the ends of justice served by continuing the trial date in this case outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.

4. The defendant shall remain on bond and conditions of release previously imposed.

This 13th day of December, 2011. /s/ Judge Reeves

———— End of Judge’s Order —————-

That’s an additional seven weeks for Weinland’s legal team to march around the Jericho of the governments case ….  Oh, heck.  I’ve been listening to Weinland for too long.  I’m starting to spiritualize and look for numeric significance in everything.  😀  The 49-day delay is somewhat less than the 180 days requested in the motion to continue.  But hey — Ron has his daughter/senior elder/bookkeeper Audra to help the defense team sort through all those financial transactions — it ought to be a snap.

With the continuance, Ron now has until March 8th to reach a plea agreement with a reduction in sentence based on “thinking differently”.

With Passover on the evening after sunset on April 5, only 2 weeks and 2 days after the trial’s new start date, the trial and jury deliberations will need to proceed apace and Weinland’s lawyers need to have a winning case for Ron to be able to conduct Passover “down under” as he had planned.  And it doesn’t look like he’ll be going to Toronto in February.

Following that will be Ron’s motion to continue the return of Jesus Christ.
