Bill Windsor files motion to make Missoula County Montana Judge aware of possible Federal Criminal Charges


Bill Windsor has filed a motion to make Missoula County Montana Judge James A. Haynes aware of possible federal criminal charges against him.

There was a MAJOR development in the Bill Windsor criminal case on August 17, 2015 when William M. Windsor was advised by Missoula County Attorney Jennifer Clark that federal charges may be filed against him for allegedly sending a Tweet, sending an email to an attorney, and publishing the name of Sean Boushie, the man who attempted to kill him.

When I wrote an article about this, I received an email from Missoula County Attorney Jennifer Clark saying I had misrepresented the facts.  She threatened me with sanctions.

First, I never misrepresented anything.  Second, she has filed absolutely false pleadings with the courts.  Third, her star witness has lied his a$$ off and misrepresented a massive amount of stuff, and she simply allows him to do it.

Now this threat of sanctions is interesting as is her refusal to explain what I allegedly misrepresented.  I will file a complaint against her with the Montana Bar Association.  I’ll publish it here once it is filed.

This morning, I filed a motion with the Court to make Judge James A. Haynes aware of this alleged federal investigation:






State of Montana,                                 §        Dept. No. 3


          Plaintiff,                                     §        Cause No. DC-14-509


   v.                                                       §        MOTION FOR STAY


William Michael Windsor,                   §        AND CONTINUANCE OF


Defendant.                                  §        PRE-TRIAL CONFERENCE




          COMES NOW William M. Windsor, Defendant, and files this “Motion for Stay and Continuance of Pre-Trial Conference,” and shows the Court as follows:




         This cause is currently stayed due to an appeal to federal court. An additional reason for a stay now exists as William M. Windsor has been informed that the U.S. Attorney’s Office is considering making this a federal case. A Pre-Trial Conference was scheduled for August 21, 2015 prior to the stay. William M. Windsor is 12 hours away by Interstate highways, and he has not been planning to attend anything on August 21, 2015 due to the explicit terms of the Stay Order. He asks that the Court issue an order continuing the Pre-Trial Conference until after the stay is lifted or this cause is dismissed. He asks that the cause be stayed for an additional reason – the potential federal charges.


  1. This case was stayed by order of this Court on June 8, 2015. The Order states: “No action will be taken until the Montana Supreme Court has ruled.”
  2. The case was stayed again on June 23, 2015 due to an appeal to federal court of the Montana Supreme Court’s ruling. The Third Order Staying Proceedings states: “On June 22, 2015, Defendant William M. Windsor (“Windsor”) filed a Notice of Filing of Notice of Appeal (Doc. #81) signed by William Windsor on June 18, 2015. Thus, future action in this cause is stayed.” [emphasis added.]
  3. A Pre-Trial Conference was scheduled for August 21, 2015 prior to the Third Order Staying Proceedings. This Court has never provided notice of the rescheduling of that conference. William M. Windsor is 12 hours away by Interstate highways, and he has not been planning to attend anything on August 21, 2015 because “future action in this cause is stayed.”
  4. On August 17, 2015, William M. Windsor traveled to Missoula for the jury drawing and for witness interviews that had not been previously scheduled by the State.
  5. During the August 17, 2015 meeting at the Missoula County Attorney’s Office, Missoula Police Department Detective Chris Shermer and Missoula County Attorney Jennifer Clark informed William M. Windsor that the U.S. Attorney’s Office is now considering making this a federal case.
  6. William M. Windsor spoke with the office of the Clerk of the Court of the U.S. District Court for Montana on August 17, 2015, and there has been no decision issued on the appeal.




  1. William M. Windsor is obligated by his bail conditions to attend the Pre-Trial Conference. This cause is stayed, and he is not planning to travel to Missoula on August 21, 2015.
  2. The Pre-Trial Conference may not be held as an appeal is still pending and as per the explicit terms of the Third Order Staying Proceedings. However, William M. Windsor respectfully requests an order confirming that cancellation so he is not at risk when he is not in Missoula on Friday.


  1. An additional reason to stay now exists as the Missoula County Attorney’s Office and Missoula Police Department have informed William M. Windsor that the U.S. Attorney’s Office is considering making this a federal case.
  2. If the U.S. Attorney has William M. Windsor indicted pursuant to a federal statute for violation of a protective order, this cause will have to be dismissed.
  3. It doesn’t make sense to move forward with this cause until that decision has been made.

WHEREFORE, William M. Windsor prays that this Court enter an order that:

  1. William M. Windsor’s motion is granted;
  2. the Pre-trial Conference is canceled until the stay is lifted;
  3. this cause shall remain stayed until the last federal appeal by William M. Windsor is decided;
  4. this cause shall remain stayed until the U.S. Attorney’s Office indicts William M. Windsor or advises that it will not pursue federal charges; and
  5. for such further relief as the Court feels is appropriate.


This 18th day of August 2015,


William M. Windsor



I sent this email to Jennifer Clark and to the public defender back-up counsel with a copy of the motion:

“Motion for Stay and Continuance just filed.
“According to the explicit terms of the Stay Order, I understand there will be no conference on Friday.

“Chris, please advise what you understood Chris Shermer and Ms. Clark to say about federal crimes by me and involvement of the U.S. Attorney.  Thanks.”

Jennifer Clark responded with another threat:

“you motion is inaccurate.  There is not a federal investigation and I never said that it was in the hands of the US attorney.  I will be asking for sanctions unless you withdraw your motion and make it factually accurate.”

I replied with this:

“Well, what did you say?  And what did Chris Shermer say?  What are the facts?  I asked you to provide this information previously, and you did not do so.
“Please answer these questions:
1.  What did you say at the conclusion of the Boushie session?
2.  With whom have you spoken at the U.S. Attorney’s Office?
3.  What did Chris Shermer say to me in the lobby?
4.  Has the U.S. Attorney’s Office considered making this a federal case?
5.  Specifically what would you have me edit in my motion?
6.  What would the sanctions be for?”

So, let’s see what happens.

Here is the previous article:

This was communicated to me by Missoula County Attorney, Jennifer Clark.  This is presumably the statute — 18 U.S.C. 2262.  I’ve not committed a crime, and certainly haven’t violated this statute.

When I arrived “home” this evening after a very dangerous drive, I received this email from Missoula County Attorney, Jennifer Clark:

From: Jennifer Clark <>;
Sent: Tuesday, August 18, 2015 2:57 PM
Subject: False information

“Mr. Windsor:
“I have been advised of information you posted on your website that I told you to expect Federal Charges.  This is a misrepresentation and I would like you to correct the false information that you are sharing.
“thank you”

Here is my response to Jennifer Clark:

“I published that you told me it was in the hands of the U.S. Attorney.  That was what both Christopher Daly and I understood.  As you will recall, he then said that I should not be surprised (or should expect …not sure which) some Federal Marshals to come grab me.
“May I ask who you spoke with at the U.S. Attorney’s Office?  I’d like to speak with them.
“I will post your email and my response online.  I’ll check what someone else may have written to be sure the proper story is reflected.
“I would never intentionally misrepresent anything that you say.”
Here is what was published on Facebook: …”the big news is that it looks like William M. Windsor will soon be facing federal charges for his alleged Tweet, email, and publishing the name of the man who tried to kill him.”
This was also published on Facebook: “So, Bill Windsor is probably headed to ‘jail’ again. Federal Marshals will arrest him and put him in a federal prison of some type. It’s going to be like starting all over. This is kind of like Chinese Water Torture.”


When Jennifer Clark and Missoula County Police Department Detective Chris Shermer spoke with me about this, they had huge ****-eating grins on their faces, laughing. 

I asked Jennifer Clark what was going to happen, and she said it was in the hands of the Feds. 
So, it looks to me like I will soon be facing Federal Charges for Tweeting, etc. 
Sure sounded probable to both my court-appointed back-up counsel and me. 
In fact, the public defender said while we were with the bad guys that I should expect Federal Marshals to show up and grab me.  He told me as we walked out of the courthouse that I would get a new public defender back-up counsel from federal court.  Sure sounded probable to me.
I doubt that Jennifer Clark will tell me who she spoke with at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  She wouldn’t even  tell me what I was charged with back in January.

Michael W. Cotter Patricia Cotter
I plan to call the U.S. Attorney for Montana tomorrow.  The U.S. Attorney for Montana is Michael W. Cotter, and he is married to Montana Supreme Court Justice Patricia CotterJustice Patricia Cotter is an extremely corrupt judge who has legally raped me on several occasions.  I’m sure Michael W. Cotter will “love” me, if he doesn’t already.
Some of the crimes committed by courts are done by the clerk of the court staff.  I am experiencing this yet again with the federal court is Missoula Montana.  It appears that they are destroying my filings.  I have mailed to them three times and called them three times about my appeal of the refusal of Patricia Cotter and her associates to hold a hearing on my motion to disqualify Judge James A. Haynes in my Montana criminal case.  It has been over a month!  The clerk who I have spoken with twice has been extremely nervous.  He last told me “I don’t have any FIRST-HAND knowledge about what has happened to your filings.”
I have a certified mail return receipt delivery confirmation, and they were still denying receipt.
Let me briefly touch on the comment that I made above about a very dangerous drive.  I have come to the realization that I should be driving as little as possible.  After being in only one minor fender-bender in a lifetime of driving, I am now running off the road, almost rammed a lady today at 70 mph on the Interstate, etc.  My recent dizziness problem comes from the back of my skull, bottom right.  This was where the impact of my fractured skull was in December 2013.  When I am driving and turn my head sharply to the right to look to see if my right side is clear, I get a dizzy spell.  My depth perception seems a little off, everything does when I drive.  The tremor in my left hand is extremely bad, and my arm starts shaking badly at times as I am holding the steering wheel.  I’ve written before that I was going to limit driving until I finally get to see a neurologist, but now I must try really hard.  I could be dead today from running off the road on the side of a mountain in a hairpin turn.  That’s scary.
Now I guess I’ll have to work night and day preparing exhibits for the possibility of a Pre-Trial Hearing in Missoula on Friday.  There shouldn’t be one as the case is stayed pending the results of my appeal to federal court.  But, nothing has been received from the court to remove it from the calendar.  I wouldn’t be totally shocked if they keep it on the schedule and Federal Marshals arrest me when I walk in.  Maybe I can find a designated driver to take me back.
UPDATE: 7:46 PM ON AUGUST 18, 2015
I just received this from Jennifer Clark:
“You did misrepresent what I said because I never said it was in the hands of the U.S. Attorney’s office. You have made several misrepresentations and if it continues during trial, I will ask for sanctions. Your recklessness with the facts is concerning.”
Here is my response to Jennifer Clark:

“What misrepresentations?  You say I have made several.  Let’s hear them.


“I believe you said it was in the hands of the U.S. Attorney.  That was my understanding.  “It’s up to the U.S. Attorney,” or words to that effect.  If you want to type up what you believe you said, I will be delighted to publish it.


“I have no desire to misrepresent facts.  You do it too well.


“I need my freedom of information documents.  May I send a courier to pick them up tomorrow?


“I will update this article with your latest email”

These emails give me the impression that Chris Shermer and Jennifer Clark got carried away with their gloating over this.  OR, perhaps they made the whole thing up.  OR perhaps the U.S. Attorney’s Office told them they should get serious and go away.
Chris Shermer came into the Missoula County Attorney’s Office and asked me if I knew I had committed federal crimes.  I told him I had not.
Jennifer Clark turned to me at the end of the witness interviews and asked me if Chris Shermer had told me about the federal issue.  I told her that he had.  She then said they had spoken to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  I asked “what are they going to do?”  She responded that it was in their hands or I’d have to hear from them or something similar.  That’s what happened.
P.S.  I have never been in a federal prison.  Just three county jails.  So far.  But, now it’s possible that I could spend the rest of my life in a federal prison.
I wonder if I get to go to one like Martha Stewart.
