53 Days in Ellis County Texas Jail as a Political Prisoner – The Saga of Bill Windsor – Part 5


My name is William M. Windsor.  I have never been arrested, have never been charged with a crime, and had never been in jail prior to October 28, 2014.

But for 53 days, from October 28 to December 19, 2014, I was detained in the Ellis County Jail in Waxahachie, Texas as a political prisoner.

This is Part 5 of my story.  Ellis County Texas District Attorney Patrick Wilson is shown here.  He is a ringleader in the corruption in Ellis County Texas, and he is responsible for me being illegally detained, incarcerated, denied bond, and denied release.  He’s a bad guy.  He needs to resign or be voted out of office.

What I am publishing is a sworn affidavit that I filed on December 11, 2014 in criminal cause number 14-158 in the 40th Judicial District Court in Ellis County, Texas, Ex Parte William M. Windsor. 

I am writing this in several parts to tell the story of my experience as a political prisoner.  This is .  I am inserting additional information from the diary that I kept, and these additions are shown inside [brackets.]

I will be linking evidence to these articles as time permits.

If you haven’t read Part 1, Part 2Part 3, or Part 4, please do, as this makes the most sense when read in chronological order.

In the following sworn statements under penalty of perjury, I refer to myself as the “Relator,” which I understand is the proper designation in a habeas corpus proceeding.

53.  On December 4, 2014, the Relator was very excited to learn that he was going to court.  This meant attorney Juanita Edgecomb had obtained a hearing on the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus that she had filed.  The Relator felt sure that he was going home after 38 days of illegal confinement.  The law and case law are clear.

54.  The [December 4, 2014] hearing was a disaster.  Juanita Edgecomb had to ask to reset it when District Attorney Patrick Wilson appeared to argue that the Relator was a fugitive from justice after committing a crime in Missoula, Montana on December 30, 2013.  This was information not provided by A.D.A. Heffernan on November 21, 2014.  D.A. Patrick Wilson also gave Judge [Cindy] Ermatinger false information about the law regarding the obligation of release after 30 days.

55.  The Relator was beyond beside himself when Juanita Edgecomb appeared to choke.  She later informed the Relator that A.D. A. Aimee had agreed to tell the Judge [Cindy Ermatinger] that the Relator should be released.

56.  The Relator isn’t a fugitive and can prove he wasn’t in Montana in December 2013 or any time thereafter.

57.  This [District Attorney Patrick Wilson surprise] meant the Relator had to wait for another hearing before Judge [Cindy] Ermatinger.

[I was soon to learn that this meant two more weeks in prison.]


I will add more detail and exhibits to Part 5, but I want to get the basic story out there first.  Then I’ll go back and supplement.  I have diary information to add as well. 

Part 1 is the background to the story.  Part 2 discusses when Bill Windsor was handcuffed and taken to jail from a hearing in a civil suit that he filed against the people who have viciously defamed him in what is the largest case of defamation in U.S. history.  Part 3 details early days in jail and attempts to get someone/anyone to help; the conspiracy to keep William M. Windsor in jail begins to come to lightPart 4 covers events from November 26, 2014 through December 2, 2014 as the corruption of Judge Bob Carroll erupts in full bloom.  Part 5 introduces Ellis County Texas District Attorney Patrick Wilson into the corruption picture.  Part 6 leads to a December 19, 2014 at which Bill Windsor was ordered released by Judge Cindy Ermatinger.

Bill Windsor was never arrested, just illegally incarcerated for 53 days — a political prisoner!
