Katona Still Seeking Details

June 19, 2013

All Posts, News

A full two years after his arrest, reputed Pagans National President Dennis “Rooster” Katona still wants to see what Pennsylvania State Police know about a suspended Trooper named Robert W. Stauffer.

Stauffer helped plan the raid on Katona’s Hempfield, Pennsylvania home in June 2011. The raid recovered three and a half ounces of methamphetamine and three ounces of cocaine. After the raid, Katona spent a month in jail before he was released to home confinement on $500,000 bail. Stauffer was an “intelligence officer” for the Pennsylvania State Police Special Emergency Response Team – the police who conducted the raid.

Katona was arrested by a 30 man Swat team using explosives and reinforced with armored vehicles and snipers. The search was a classic example of extrajudicial punishment by Swat.

Stauffer has been accused of leaking information to former Pagans President Merle “Jackpot” King. Stauffer was the subject of a grand jury investigation and he is currently suspended without pay. State Police official describe that investigation as “ongoing” and Stauffer has not been charged.

Brady Evidence

Katona’s attorney, Paul D. Boas, has been trying to establish a connection between Stauffer and the drugs found in Katona’s home. Boas has been seeking transcripts from the Stauffer grand jury for six months, Boas thinks the transcripts may contain testimony that will help prove Katona is innocent.

By law, Boas and Katona should be able to read the transcripts. By law, prosecutors should voluntarily provide all evidence in their possession that would tend to prove defendants are innocent. Consequently, in virtually every criminal case, defense attorneys file a motion for the disclosure of so-called “Brady Evidence.” The name comes from a 1963 Supreme Court case titled Brady v. Maryland. In general practice, prosecutors frequently fail to disclose exculpatory evidence unless defenders specifically ask for it.

Nothing To See There

Pennsylvania State Police denied that information from the Stauffer investigation can help Katona’s defense. Yesterday, the State Police’s attorney, a woman named Joann Reynolds, told Judge Debra Pezze that the Stouffer investigation had practically nothing to do with Katona. “There was only a peripheral mention of Katona,” Reynolds said. “It has no impact on this case,”

Judge Pezze ordered the State Police to turn over information about the Stauffer investigation to Katona and his lawyer anyway.

    Fucking ridiculous waiting 2 years for evidence that should have been turned over in weeks. Fucking cops probably thought Rooster would be denied bail and as he is very sick he would die in jail with no hope of proving his innocence.

    Anybody want to bet the dope came from Stauffer’s personal stash or possibly the evidence room.

    Best wishes to Rooster Katona in your fight against these fabricated charges.

    Respect to the Pagan Nation.
