Bifield Bags Guilty Plea

February 19, 2013

All Posts, Features, News

The strange and corrupt case of the Rock Hell Five got a little more honest Tuesday afternoon. One time lead defendant Daniel Eugene “Diamond Dan” Bifield moved to withdrew his guilty plea to a charge of racketeering conspiracy.

Bifield and his wife Lisa both agreed to plea bargains last December 27. Bifield was blackmailed into taking the deal under that threat that his wife would never see her daughter again if he didn’t. Unbeknownst to Dan Bifield, Lisa Bifield had been talking with prosecutors since last June.

Bifield block printed his five page motion on ruled paper by hand. It reads as follows.

Based on prosecutorial misconduct, the defendant wants to withdraw his plea agreement for the following reasons:

1. U.S. Attorney Richardson and the FBI had Lisa Bifield sign a proffer in July and August of 2012 but withheld this knowledge and information from me on the day I signed my plea agreement – 12/27/12.

2. That U.S. Attorney Richardson, the FBI and other law enforcement withheld a statement made by Lisa Bifield on 6/7/12, the day of our arrest, from me on the day I signed my plea agreement – 12/27/12.

3. That the U.S. Attorney used my wife, Lisa Bifield, to place me under duress for me to sign a plea deal by threatening to put my wife in prison for 14 years and telling her she would never see her 14-year-old daughter again.

4. That the U.S. Attorney pressured us to take this one time offer of a plea deal and only allowed us seven days to decide – starting the day after Christmas. We should have been allowed just as much time as the other co-defendants had to decide their plea deals.

5. That when I made the plea agreement I wasn’t aware of an agreement that my wife Lisa Bifield had to testify. If that had been the case I never would have taken the plea deal. I was told by my lawyers that Lisa could admit to things that she did with me in the indictment, as part of her guilty plea for acceptance of personal responsibility. I was also told that if she could testify to anything it would help her to get more time off her sentence, which I did not agree to nor ever will! At this time I asked everybody to leave the room so I could talk to my wife. I told her that I didn’t think she was getting a good deal and I didn’t like the plea deal because they gave her too much time for pleading guilty. I also told her I didn’t want her to ever testify to anything. My wife told me she didn’t know anything to testify about – that she wanted to go home as soon as possible to take care of her daughter and that she didn’t want to die in prison. So, I took the plea deal.

6. My plea agreement was to plead guilty to conspiracy of the RICO Act and to receive 20 years with three years probation; that my wife would plead guilty to the gun count for five years with two years probation; and that she would go to a prison camp. Nobody told me or Lisa that she had to testify. Also, nobody told us of the five years to life with five years probation until we heard it in court.

7. I also should have been allowed to have read my wife Lisa Bifield’s plea agreement since I sacrificed myself, my appeals and my rights.

8. That my withdrawal of said plea agreement should have no effect on Lisa Bifield’s guilty plea.

9. Rules of evidence, prosecution must disclose any and all evidence prior to trial or plea agreement.

10. I would like to state for the record all the things that I have been denied and all the wrong that has been done to both my wife, Lisa Bifield, and myself. I have been denied the right to find witnesses who may have had information or evidence to help prove our innocence. I was denied my right to have a private investigator who could have helped with the defense to find witnesses and evidence. Since the start of the case I have been kept in lockdown 23 hours a day with no human contact. My wife, Lisa Bifield, has also been kept on lockdown. We have been living under extreme conditions and made to suffer. We have been denied our rights to correspondence as husband and wife. Our mail has been held from us, taken, stolen or lost. We are being kept in lockdown because of stories and lies told by the U.S. Attorney and the FBI. If somebody really bothered to investigate this, then they would have known the truth. But nobody cared! I have been denied my rights to properly defend myself, to make the phone calls I need and to work on my case with the other co-defendants, especially my wife. We have been kept apart on purpose so we can’t share information, facts, dates, times, witnesses and events that did or didn’t happen. We have been punished and made to suffer in many ways. My wife has been told lies and stories to try to turn her against me. The conditions we are forced to live in are cruel and unusual punishment and have effected our abilities to defend ourselves.

11. I also believe and know that the U.S. Attorney, the FBI, the CIs (Confidential Informants or Confidential Human Sources) and other law enforcement have withheld evidence, tampered with evidence (tape recordings) and have destroyed evidence that would have helped our defense. That evidence has not been turned in right away by the CIs and statements made by the CIs, FBI and other law enforcement are not truthful. I can’t find videos that are supposed to back up statements and evidence from CIs. There is a lot of stuff missing and messed up that would help to prove our innocence. I’d also want to contest that fake, attempted Hobbs Act robbery and the fake drugs and the amount of drugs being used against us.

12. I’d like to put on the record that any statement made by my wife, Lisa Bifield, was made under duress, under the influence and while detoxing from Xanax and sleeping pills.

13. On 6/7/12 Lisa Bifield was upset, confused, scared, didn’t understand and was coerced by the U.S. Attorney, the FBI and other law enforcement into giving a fake statement. Lisa Bifield was in shock and in no condition to make any kind of statement to anything that happened or took place – especially after the blowing up of our home.

14. I would also like to express that in July and August when Lisa Bifield gave a proffer statement she was and had been suffering from the influence of Xanax and sleeping pills. Because of that she was not in her right state of mind, mentally and physically. She cannot be held accountable for her actions or anything she has said. It is pretty clear she did not know what she was doing or understood her rights. Because of her addiction and detoxing, she had a head injury, had to be given a shot by the doctor and taken to the outside hospital. She does not even remember any of this or much of anything else. Because of this the U.S. Attorney and the FBI took advantage of these facts and her and violated her rights!

15. Based on the foregoing and because of the nondisclosure of evidence and the ongoing corrupt actions of not only the U.S. Attorney but also the FBI and other law enforcement, I Daniel Eugene Bifield take my plea agreement back.

I, Daniel Bifield, hereby declare that all of the statements made in this motion are true and correct to the best of my knowledge.

Daniel Bifield

    Thanks Rebel.

    Random thought: if there is credible evidence, or ‘proof’ of misconduct here, doesn’t that stain any previous pleas in the same indictment garnered in similar fashion?

    Mr Bifield; Much Luck, Stay Strong.

    WTF has happened to the US? its a disgrace what has been happening here and other high profile cases over the last decade

    Freedom, liberty and a constitution……yeah right!

    Best news I have read on here for a long time. Good luck Dan.

    This just makes me livid. All of this over an alleged drug deal. Inspekteur der Sicherheitspolizei Eric Holder is responsible for the death of hundreds of Mexican citizens and a US Border patrol cop because he illegally transferred weapons to a Mexican Cartel.

    No charges.

    Hillary “the chin” Gigante lied under oath about the torture and murder of four american citizens in Libya who pleaded for help for seven hours while president slept.

    No charges.

    Barry Bonds though lies about steroids and he’ll go to jail.

    THEIR IS NO LAW ANY MORE. The social contract has been broken.

    We have a criminal kleptocracy who have usurped power and have made turned our Bill of Rights into toilet paper.

    It’s time to water the tree of liberty with some tyrants blood.

  7. Link Says:

    Great news! Hoping all works out well for Dan, Liesa, and all the others that are getting shafted in this ordeal.

    Keep your heads up and keep fighting for what’s right! I hope this will start a backlash over the government’s bullshit business model.

    Good Luck Mr. Bifield,
    You have more balls than the entire government prosecuting team (sorry, that’s not saying much, they don’t have any) I wish you the best.

  9. Sieg Says:

    What really makes Mr. Bitfield’s case so fucked-up is that the fed Beast has changed the rules of evidence to ensure those trapped by it’s various mafias will be convicted.

    I believe the ONLY hope he has of getting through this is to hold out against a conviction at any cost, and throw light on the kangaroo “court” that tries ci-devant American Citizens for crimes against the Oligarchy.

    Wouldn’t it be terrible if the 81 was able to emulate the Black Panthers of the early 70’s and sponsor a mass rally outside the courtroom every day? Damn shame we can’t trun out 20-30,000 scooter tramps to make the overlords nervous.

    Detoxing from Xanax can be life threatening. People die from it all the time. Xanax withdrawal is a lot more deadly than kicking Heroin, Alcohol, or Cocaine. I wonder if Lisa Bifield was under a doctor’s care while detoxing. I wonder if Lisa Bifield’s Xanax was prescribed, in which case she should have been continued on the medication while detained. The common treatment for Xanax detox is Ativan, another mood or mind altering substance. If under a doctor’s care, she was under the influence; if not, she should have been. I wonder if law enforcement withheld treatment for the detox, withheld medication, or threatened to. Mr. Bifield was wise to make this a part of the record. This, in and of itself, might not be enough to withdraw the guilty plea so I hope Mr. Bifield hammers the point home that he was denied discovery (of evidence against him and codefendants allegedly provided by Lisa Bifield)prior to plea negotiations.

    I wonder if Mr. Bifield fired his lawyer. If not, the court might throw this motion out as improper under the reasoning that such a motion should have been made through the lawyer. (I’m not too current on rules for criminal procedure in federal courts so I might be wrong). This judge will certainly try very hard to look for an excuse to deny the motion. This is one to make sure and preserve for appeal.

    I wish Mr. Bifield the very best.

  11. Glenn S. Says:

    I hope Shyster will weigh in on this one. I’d bet he has some interesting points to make that might find their way to Mr. Bifield.

  12. Sieg Says:

    Hate to say it, but detox-ing, under the influence, it’s all the same to them, and it’s really grasping for straws. Been there, done that, and it didn’t work. You might be able to gin up a defense with it, but it’s gonna take a lot more, I’m afraid.

    This should be used as a show-trial. I can only hope that the 81 is on top of it, and will spin it to get the most publicity.

    I read it, re-read it, and it still hard to fathom. There, but for the Grace o’ God go anyone.

    Make NO mistake. This IS the 4th Reich. And our community is the Warsaw Ghetto (forgive the analogy if offended). They suck these cases up into the Fed’s hands to RICO them, then attempt to reinterpret Due Process to fit their Agenda. They are honing this method on MC’s because it’s easy. We’re not rich, we’re not politically connected or protected. Who / what organization would step up, knowing the wrath of the alphabet soup is an eventuality.

    Sadly, Dan et al are political prisoners in their Native Country. Looks to me the reason we don’t see Amnesty Int. or the ACLU stepping up to defend these ‘Human Rights Violations’ is all about that little 1% diamond.

    But we got Heart, they don’t, which makes us a tenacious foe regardless of circumstance, and they fear that.

    Good luck Dan. Much respect, Snow.

    The real shame of this is the Gov will admit they withheld that information and will be proud of it. They will say they didn’t have to make Dan aware of any of that.
    I guess we’ll see what kind of Judge is on the bench when she has to make that decision. Dan deserves his day in court. The romance of an old outlaw, taking on Joe the Jeweler Snitch for 8 rounds. Not since the thrilla in manila will there be so much hype.

    Good Luck Dan

    Fearless–Pink Floyd

    You say the hill’s too steep to climb, Chiding!
    You say you’d like to see me try, Climbing!
    You pick the place and I’ll choose the time
    And I’ll climb
    The hill in my own way just wait a while, for the right day
    And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
    I look down hear the sound of the things you said today

    Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
    Merciless, the magistrate turns ’round, frowning
    and who’s the fool who wears the crown
    Go down in your own way
    And everyday is the right day
    And as you rise above the fearlines in his frown
    You look down
    Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

    L&R to all involved,

    00 81, yes, that’s what worries me. It doesn’t seem that Judge Currie has been impartial so far during this case and it hasn’t even started yet. Respects, swampy

  20. Jim666 Says:

    Maybe a request for another judge ?

    Wishing you the best Dan

  21. VINCE Says:

    Having known & Met Dan from WAY back in the NYC Charter (With Chuck & Others) to Bridgeport & then onto Rock Hell….I can only say how hurt,worried & DISGUSTED I am that the feds & the alphabet gang entrapped him and many others(including many friends in Myrtle Beach who’s cases arent mentioned here…??? – whats UP W/That Rebel….?) Anyways- I knew Dan would eventually be fighting this travesty & total injustice by changing(rightfully) his plea after hearing of his ‘significant others” arrangement-deal-talk fest & memoirs w/the scumbag federal prosecutors…but a REAL Man always rises above the tide to get air & freedom. TO MY FRIEND DAN AND OTHERS FROM THE CHARTER: Keep Your Head(s) UP-rise above,Stand UP To this entrapment & FALSE RICO Endictment…..GO To Trial With GOD and THE ANGELS On Your Side & I HOPE & PRAY That you See Freedom,Vindication,Resolve & Final Closure to the Governments BULLSHIT a cusations,Entrapment,and witch Hunt.

  22. old & stoned Says:

    so, has there been a ruling on the persecutions’ motion, re: no ‘entrapment’ ? can’t seem to find anything specific in the last few articles or comments.

  23. Sieg Says:

    The Occupying Force has maintained the position that if they instigate a crime, and someone participates, or even plans to participate, then they are “predisposed” to commit the crime, and are therefore guilty. Entrapment is pretty much off the table, unless there is a major reversal in rulings at the fed level.

  24. old & stoned Says:


    Thanks for that, and your previous posts. Pondered about that Panther type of show of support, and then pictured alphabet soup screaming invasion and intimidation. More whirlys, more AK’s, more APV’s, more storm troopers. It’d damn sure make more news outlets though.

  25. Sieg Says:

    O&S, that’s why we’re a perfect target, scooter-trash, by and large, stay under the radar. No publicity, other than what the Occupiers want to show, no demonstrations, no unity, well…shit, we might as well not exist, we’re only good to be the bogie-man and to give the Occupiers something to scare their wives n kids with.

    A few thousand motorsickles descending on the courthouse there, now THAT would be a different story. Or picture this, a thousand brothers show up at Coleman to see Taco, 1%’er on his visiting day, and don’t leave until they are ALL processed through.

    That shit there would be a nightmare for the Occupying Forces. Publicity and fanfare are things they just can’t handle.

    Think on it. 50 years ago, American blacks were pushed to the back of the bus, figuratively speaking, they were fair prey for pretty much anyone. They started organizing, demonstrating, and fighting back, and now they’re a freaking protected-species! There’s a lesson to be learned there.

    Hope Diamond Dan is able to retract his plea agreement, technically he should be able to since he aint been sentenced yet.

    Fight on!

  27. Glenn S. Says:

    old & stoned said: “It’d damn sure make more news outlets though.”

    Yeah, but they would report on a “domestic terrorist mob” rather than Americans protesting injustice. The media has become the ministry of propaganda, withholding or releasing information to show the government in the best light.

  28. Sled Says:

    I’m not a big 81 fan but, I hate to see anyone getting the shaft like this. It appears to be 81’s turn in the barrel. Seems the feds take turns or pick a 1%er club name out of a hat. It’s like HEY lets fuck with these guy this year!

  29. Jim666 Says:

    Sadly Glenn is right on the money.
    I really dont think it would be that just because of the biker/club associations . Nowadays I would say most any gathering of the people to petition or raise awareness of any individual being wrongly prosocuted /lynched and or convicted by our “great, honest, fierce,Just-us system”, would be frowned upon and looked into, if not arrested for, being some sort of domestic terrorist unit .
    Now being that this is about a “biker” and a patched member of a club,you can bet your ass it would turn out that way.
    Just take a second and look back at the freedoms we once had,

    now look at what we have now.

    No real comparison huh ?

    Fight on Dan.



  30. Rebel Says:

    Dear Vince,

    What’s up with the Myrtle Beach case is: a) I am just the one guy in LA trying to cover what I can; b) there is consistently more news in the federal case than in the state case, which is mostly trumped up bullshit; c), it is always easier for me to cover federal cases than state cases; and d) I have better sources, for many reasons, in some cases than others.

    If I am missing something I should be covering please don’t hesitate to drop me a line. I would appreciate if you do.

    Thank you for reading and commenting,

  31. Elizabeth Lankford Says:

    Having sat in on hours of the trial – I can tell you this for sure – the evidence that the prosecution has presented ( only through 1 witness yet – the FBL handler of the CI) is crap. They cannot keep their exhibits straight – they reuse evidence already introduced, they have obviously ( to anybody with half a brain)used the “cut and paste” system that Richard Nixon tried to prefect – their evidence is non comprehensible. The CI is obviously entrapping the defendents – begging them to save his life by providing him with weapons – and he was paid $100,000 of YOUR TAX DOLLARS plus nobody even knows how much other money that came out of your pockets as a tax payer. The prosecution cannot even identify where the money the CI “paid” for drugs and guns came from. If you have a couple of hours to kill – go to the court house and watch a little of the trial – it will surely open your eyes!

  32. Sieg Says:

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Amerikan “justice”, Elizabeth. Evidence means whatever the Occupiers say it means, and the Alphabet Goonies and their paid informers commit crimes far worse than any committed by those they target.

  36. Wretched Man Says:

    Travesty of justice.
    The absurdity of what is happening here, in this particular case, reminds me of a dark period in the history of South Africa.
    Street justice with kangaroo courts, murdering anyone opposed to “the cause”, all were used as symbols to represent the price of a just out of reach freedom. Although then “justice” was meted out vigilante style by the populace, today in your courtrooms the similarities are strikingly firmiliar, albeit with a “touch of (fake) sincerity” (sic) the desired outcome is the same & the sheeple will eat whatever is fed to them by the mainstream media.

    Thank you Rebel for your informative & honest reporting.
    Dan, your conduct has been exemplary, good examples of true men are not often seen in todays depraved society.

    Much L & R
