Judge Jonathon Newell, the only circuit judge in Caroline County, Maryland, killed himself Thursday while FBI agents outside his home called on a speaker for him to surrender to arrest.
Newell shot himself rather than be held accountable for his serial crimes against children, despite the fact he had spent his career holding other criminals responsible as district attorney, state attorney and as a judge for the last five years.
Newell was the only circuit court judge in Caroline County so he most likely presided over contested custody cases.
Two boys found a camera which was recording them undress in the bathroom of Newell's hunting cabin. Newell blamed it on another man who had been there with four other boys.
But during a previous interview and search warrant, Newell had swallowed a memory card. An agent suspected it and it was found in his intestines with an X-ray. Newell was seen in some of the recorded videos, so it was a strong case Newell had little chance of winning.
Although much MSM concentrates on Newell creating child porn/child exploitation through the use of a hidden camera in his bathroom, many children say he also molested them. He would fondle their genitals under the guise of checking them for ticks after they undressed and before they got in the shower.
A more thorough post-mortem investigation may turn up more victims and crimes. The man who was there with four other boys needs to be identified and investigated. If anyone in the Maryland area wants to follow up on that, please message TWC.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
NO JUDGE should have the power to decide child custody or visitation.
This power is too important and impactful to be trusted to judges, who too often rule to entitle and empower fathers rather than for the safety and well-being of children.
Instead of Family Court judges deciding custody/visitation, it should be a jury in a regular civil court. Reforms within the Family Court system will not work.
The Child Custody Act provides for a new system in which women will get due process and children will be protected. As soon as there is enough support for it, we will introduce it to legislatures.
