Was Justice Served
Was It Swept Under The Proverbial Rug Of Judicial Protection?

"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice,
but there must never be a time when we fail to protest."
- Elie Wiesel
Web Magazine editor - Social Activist - Child Advocate - Wife - Mother - Railroaded Criminal Defendant - Political Prisoner - all those terms correctly describe Brevard County's Dana Delaney Loyd.

Since her August 2015 arrest by the Brevard County Sheriff's Office - under the charge of making a false call to the Florida Abuse Hotline - VolusiaExposed.Com has published over twenty articles arguing Loyd's actual legal innocence - exposing her criminal kangroo show trial - coupled with her obvious - and now proven illegal criminal sentence.

We invite you to review ALL of our previous articles - all of which have been incorporated within our July 6, 2017 article. ---->

On December 5, 2017 - Loyd was released from the Orange County jail after serving a jail sentence imposed by Brevard County Judge Robin Lemonidis. Loyd had to be housed in the Orange County jail - rather than the Brevard County jail due to concerns for her personal safety - and in response to inappropriate comments made by members of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office posted on their (BCSO) own FaceBook page. (As detailed in our May 15, 2017 article - BCSO Deputy Jason Brimm appears to memorialize that Loyd's arrest, prosecution and sentencing was directly connected to her web articles exposing alleged corruption within the BCSO - rather than making an alleged false call to the Florida Abuse Hotline.)

Question: Whom is harassing who? Did Loyd harass her alleged victim - OR is the BCSO (and company) harassing Loyd - you decide.


Allow us to be very clear here - VolusiaExposed.Com forwards the OPINION - that our earlier articles provide clear and convincing evidence in support of a multi-agency (State Attorney's Office, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, DCF, the Attorney General's Office, Circuit Court Judge Robin Lemonidis and sadly the 5th Distict Court of Appeal) conspiracy to criminally railroad Loyd - with the goal of silencing her criticism of the local Brevard criminal justice system.

We invite you to read our earlier articles for the particulars.

5th District Court Of Appeal's Failures

Shortly after Loyd's March 2017 conviction and her April 2017 sentencing - sponsors funded her criminal appeal via a well respected Miami law firm.

Her attorneys (Miami) sought Loyd's release from jail while her appeal worked it's way through the criminal justice system. As detailed in our May 28, 2017 article - her appeal bond was denied by the 5th DCA. VolusiaExposed.Com developed concerns that one of the DCA judges involved in denying Loyd her appeal bond - had a conflict of interest. Loyd had published a very critical article regarding the judge's sister-in-law.

On December 12, 2017 oral arguments were given to the 5th DCA by Loyd's attorney and a representative from the Florida Attorney General's Office (see below video) It's definitely worth watching.
It's our opinion that Loyd's attorney won the legal argument - hands down. In fact - shortly after we departed the courtroom - directly outside the courtroom an unknown attorney approached the Loyd group and stated that he attends the 5th DCA regularly - and Loyd should be very optimistic of a positive outcome. Shortly thereafter the Assistant Attorney General congratulated Loyd's attorney for his legal arguments. In fact - pay particular attention to the last ten (10) seconds of the oral argument video and you will clearly hear a 5th DCA judge advise Loyd's attorney that his case was a "well argued case". Does a well argued case involving the impartiality of a trial judge ONLY equate to a PCA decision?

December 12, 2017 Oral Arguments - 5th District Court Of Appeal

On December 19, 2017 - the 5th DCA issued their written opinion. The Court issued what is called a "Per Curiam Affirmed" (PCA) opinion affirming Loyd's criminal conviction. --->

So what is a PCA decision? A PCA decision is a decision of the Court to affirm the lower court's decision (in this case Loyd's conviction) without issuing a written narrative in support of their opinion / decision.

What's important about a PCA decision? The long and short of it - is that a PCA decision can NOT be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court (full disclosure - no one here at VolusiaExposed has a law degree - therefore our OPINIONS and OBSERVATION are not legal advice).

VolusiaExposed.Com forwards the following questions. Does the 5th DCA - within the courtroom video - appear to have concerns about "Williams' Rule Evidence" - Judge Lemonidis impartiality - and improper comments by the State Attorney during closing arguments? Were any of these concerns addressed in their (5th DCA) PCA decision? Do you believe that Loyd received a fair and impartial trial? Do you believe that Loyd received a fair judicial review by the 5th DCA. Did the PCA opinion factually deny Loyd her legal due process to a fair and impartial trial?

Some Final Thoughts

"I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for some - and PCAs for the rest."

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." - A proclamation by the pigs who control the government in the novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell. The sentence is a comment on the hypocrisy of governments that proclaim the absolute equality of their citizens but give power and privileges to a small elite (small elite - does that equate to the members of the BCSO, SAO, Judge Lemonidis, and the 5th DCA?).
