State Accountability Rally

Ellsworth, Maine

On May 31st, 2014, at 11am Integrity4Maine will hold a protest and press conference on the steps of Hancock County Courthouse at 50 State Street, Ellsworth, Maine, to bring attention to the egregious abuse of the judicial system by State prosecutors.

Prominent community leaders, advocates, victims, and human rights activists from Maine and from around the nation will come together to take part in this historic protest to bring attention to unethical abuse by the State and its

functionaries.

In Hancock and Washington Counties, numerous men, women, and children have been abused and have had their lives destroyed by the practices of the 7th District Attorney’s office. In 2013, the infamous prosecutor Mary Kellett, who prosecuted countless innocent individuals throughout her 10 year 10,000 case career, was the first prosecutor in Maine’s history to be charged and found guilty of violating 7 Bar Rules; advising police to withhold evidence, failing to turn over evidence of the defendant’s innocence, and not being truthful before a jury. Her only punishment, despite reports of numerous victims, was to complete 6 hours of continued education classes.

Such inexcusable abuse of citizen’s civil rights are being ignored and excused by the judicial system and the State functionaries responsible with protecting the public. Assistant District Attorney Paul Cavanaugh and Assistant District Attorney Bill Entwisle from that same office are running for District Attorney, but insist on maintaining the status quo.

Integrity4Maine is protesting to say enough is enough and is calling on citizens to make informed voting decisions this year to defend their families and communities from the State’s abuse of power.

Everyone interested in taking part in this historic event is urged to come to Ellsworth Maine and take a stand in

solidarity with victims in the community who call for State accountability to The People.
