Terry Harris Files Complaint Against Judge Johnny Hardwick
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Terry Harris, President & CEO of
Networker2000.com announced that he filed Cannon Charges against Judge Johnny
Hardwick of Montgomery County, Alabama. Hardwick presided over the trial that
forced Harris into defending himself in a very complex securities trial without
an attorney. Harris alleges that Hardwick committed eight violations of the
Alabama Cannons of Judicial Ethics which is the code of ethics that all Alabama
Judges must follow.
Harris alleges that if Judge Johnny Hardwick did not commit judicial misconduct
in the three-day trial the case would have been dismissed after the State's
first witness, Susan Anderson, Chief Counsel of the Alabama Securities
Commission, stated under oath: "Terry Harris broke no laws." Hardwick had
several other chances to dismiss the case when two other attorneys for the
Alabama Securities Commission stated: "Terry Harris broke no laws." The ASC
states that Harris broke no laws but prosecutes him anyway. Harris contends
that this is when prosecution becomes persecution. Hardwick also threatened to
provide instructions to the jurors that were not based on law. Hardwick did
not care about or bother to learn the laws surrounding Harris's case. Harris
was ultimately sentenced to five years probation but Harris appealed the
probation and that was enough to lift Harris from all of the sanctions of the
probation. In fact the probation was stayed and Harris has the same freedom
that he had before he went to trial.
Harris believes that his prosecution is very political and is part of a
government conspiracy that may include the following officials: the Governor of
Alabama, Bob Riley, and Alabama Attorney General, Troy King.
Harris alleges that racism is the motive behind the actions of Joseph Borg,
director of the Alabama Securities Commission, who initiated the false charges.
Harris and his company have been supported by the SCLC, prominent civil rights
leaders like Dick Gregory, Rev Fred Suttlesworth and Rev Abraham Woods. A
March in the streets of downtown Birmingham, AL was also led by Martin Luther
King III in August 2004 in protest of the persecution that Harris received from
Borg and the ASC.
