Judge George Kreeger & Hylton Dupree Order March 6, 2012 and my arrest in KY March 30, 2013

Judge George Kreeger/Hylton Dupree civil divorce contempt Order filed March 6, 2012, entered into the NCIC as a felony fugitive warrant with extradition to 48 states and my arrest in Kentucky March 30, 2013.
I was entered into the NCIC as a felony fugitive warrant with extradition to 48 states.

The Order was prepared by Hylton Dupree and signed/filed on March 6, 2012 by Judge George Kreeger over the same contempt charge (filed by Judge Adele Grubbs on October 19, 2004), see blog post the NCIC national data base as a felony fugitive warrant with extradition to 48 states. My name was placed the NCIC national data base as a felony fugitive in a warrant requiring my extradition from 48 states.  

There was no District Attorney’s (at the time it was Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds) Request For Extradition Authority Form Signed and no Magistrate Judge’s Order. 

The “HIT” confirmation (person responsible) for my arrest in Kentucky on March 30, 2013,was the name Stephenson *, from the Cobb County Sheriff’s office.  I don’t know if there is someone name Stephenson that worked for the Cobb County Sheriff’s office on March 30, 2013.  There was the Cobb County Superior Court Clerk named Jay Stephenson’s whose last day of employment there was December 31, 2012.   The arrest “HIT” confirmation was given on March 30, 2013, which was three months after Jay Stephenson’s last day as Clerk of Superior Court of Cobb County.  Judge George Kreeger announced his retirement/resignation on July 4, 2012, and his last day as a Cobb County Superior Court Judge was September 30, 2012.

* If anyone is aware of a Cobb County, Ga. Sheriff’s employee Stephenson who gave the "HIT" for my arrest with this warrant process, I would appreciate any information.  
Thank you.

Below the name of Confirmer of the "HIT":  Stephenson 

Remarks:  Warrant is Active.  Please place a hold on this above subject.  We will extradite.  Please contact Invest. Claunch at 770-499-4672. 

I was not extradited to Georgia.

See NCIC “HIT” confirmation below.

I was arrested for this civil matter on this felony fugitive warrant (with full extradition) from Cobb County on March 30, 2013, after leaving a business meeting in Flemingsburg KY.  There was a plain clothed KY State Trooper (from Flemingsburg named Chad Boling) who was at the meeting who called and gave the tip about my location, according to one of the three arresting officers Kentucky State Trooper Pat Zalone.  At no time did anyone know where my husband and I were going when we left the meeting.  We were on our way to the dollar store to purchase some Seven Up for our daughter who had already arrived at our home from Georgia, going in the opposite direction of home. 

I was the passenger when we were pulled over less than a mile from the meeting by Kentucky State Police Trooper Zalone, Fleming County Police Officer Aaron Workman and Fleming County Sheriff Deputy Jeremy Meade.  The initial stop was for a seat belt violation. 

After being surrounded by three police officers, my husband (the driver) was given a ticket for no seat belt.  He had removed it when he saw the three law enforcement officers. My husband was then removed from the truck and asked to sit in the truck bed.   KSP Trooper Pat Zalone ordered Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Meade was to stay with him in the back of the truck.  My husband became angry and asked, "Why are you separating me from my wife”? 

After my husband was removed to the back of the truck, KSP Trooper Zalone saw my cell phone that was lying in my purse, picked it up and took it back to his patrol car.  I was still seat-belted in but being guarded at my door by Fleming County Police Officer Aaron Workman and told not to leave.  After about ten minutes I unbuckled my seatbelt and went  out the drivers side door hoping to discover what KSP Trooper Zalone was doing with the cell phone.  He was searching the phone and Fleming County Deputy Jeremy Meade and my husband (still in the back of the truck) saw me and heard me say, “Why are you searching my cell phone”? I have nothing to hide. I sensed something was terribly wrong. 

I was ordered back to the truck, and went to the truck.  When I got there Fleming County Police Officer Aaron Workman was still at the passenger door so I asked him to let me back in the truck, he did. KSP Trooper Zalone handed me back the cell phone.  I was then asked for identification and told KSP Trooper Zalone I had none. I had no wallet or identification with me, I was going to a business luncheon meeting, and our daughter was due to arrive to visit from Georgia so we were going to hurry back home (she had called and told us she was at our home waiting for us).  Earlier when they were issuing the ticket to my husband for the seat belt violation they took his driver license and ordered me to empty out the glove compartment, which I did.  They obtained the insurance and registration information.  They knew his name but not mine.  

I was then ordered to remove the contents of my purse, which I did.  My sister gave the purse to me, when she visited at Christmas a few months earlier.  There were some items in one of the compartments, which I did not know were there. There were some old expired credit cards, a medical card with some numbers on it and a picture ID from a B.J.’s store which was clearly not me.  Trooper Zalone took them and said “Wendi Cole”.  I said there is no one by that name the name has been changed.  This is because my sister was divorced a few years earlier and changed her name back to her maiden name.

Trooper Zalone became very angry and asked, “What is the name” and I answered “Wendi Ferber”.  He left with the items and returned to the truck and said, “There is no person by the name Wendi Ferber or Wendi Cole”, I think you are someone who has a warrant out for your arrest”.  I said, “I am Marla Wright and there is an illegal warrant out for my arrest from Georgia, and this purse was given to me by my sister, yes there is such a person”.  I was then charged with giving an officer a false name, but Trooper Zalone returned all the expired credit cards, picture id and papers back to me.  He never kept the evidence and his Police Report states that he was given items in the name of Wendi Ferber.  There were no items in my possession or that were given to him with that name. 

These items were not allowed to be entered into the Fleming County court case as evidence, and I was never allowed to testify or ever speak during the entire jury trial. My public defender Josh Hitch never prepared my defense so I was not able to testify and produce the evidence, which I have. I have had two public defenders, the first Crystal Ball one was taken off the case after the first suppression hearing and obtaining the NCIC “Hit” Confirmation records from Georgia.  I was told Crystal Ball was on leave so I tried to find her on the Kentucky State Bar Directory. However, there was no Crystal Ball listed but I did find a Crystal Love listed which appears to be her. 

I was arrested in Flemingsburg Kentucky for the Cobb County Georgia Sheriff’s Office felony warrant with full extradition on my civil divorce case, which was dismissed by Fleming County District Court Judge Frank H. McCartney.  I was also charged with giving an officer a false name and was held in the Mason County Kentucky jail for five days with no extradition hearing.  According to Fleming County Attorney John C. Price, Cobb County Georgia never answered Kentucky when they were contacted about the NCIC felony warrant with extradition to 48 states.

My case for giving a false name has been before the Kentucky Court of Appeals who upheld my conviction. The case is currently before the Kentucky Supreme Court and has been docketed for hearing to decide whether to grant discretionary review March 23, 2015. 

I’ve lived in Kentucky since November 2006 and have never even had one ticket.   I have never had any criminal charges filed against me in my life. I had never been in a courtroom for any case, filed by me or against me prior to my Cobb County divorce that I filed in 1996.
