On August 22, 2019, a lower court judge unexpectedly sentenced our Editor-In-Chief Dr. James Sears to ONE YEAR IN JAIL for cracking jokes about women and Jews. After the judge read out his sentence, Dr. Sears was swarmed by guards, one flashing handcuffs. Dr. Sears calmly handed everything in his possession to his wife and 4 year old son, except for his crucifix which he clutched as the guards handcuffed him and led him off. He was standing tall and beaming with pride. His final words to us were "See you guys!"
But what the lower court judge didn't know is that ever since he convicted us back in January, Dr. Sears has been studying case law. So after spending 5 days in jail, on August 27, 2019, like Jesus, Dr. Sears rose again! He took the paddy wagon from the jail to the courthouse, and handed a kick-ass "Notice of Appeal" to a Superior Court judge. Dr. Sears accused the lower court judge of being biased and giving insufficient reasons for convicting us, and making other legal errors. The Superior Court judge agreed with Dr. Sears that his appeal has merit, and she quickly released him on "Bail Pending Appeal". He walked out of the court and back into the arms of his wife and son, fresh handcuff marks still on his wrists in the same spots where Jesus was wounded when he was nailed to the cross.
One of his bail conditions was to convince me to temporarily take down the Your Ward News website until the appeal is heard in a few months. I agreed to do it to help keep my Christian comrade out of the slammer. I get sentenced on August 29, 2019, and I'll be joining him in an appeal of my conviction and sentence. I'm confident we're both going to win our appeals. When that happens, the website comes back online and we get a brand new trial. And this time around, we're going to win it!
