Why Hasn't Michael Schiavo Been Charged With Criminal Adultery?
Adulterer Michael Schiavo
The attorney for Bob and Mary Schindler is David Gibbs, Jr. The Schindler's legal team has met with Governor Jeb Bush "a number of times," and Gov. Bush has refused to use the authority of his office to pursue the criminal adultery issue regarding Michael Schaivo. [who has co-habited with another woman not-his-wife for 10 years and fathered two children by her]
Under Florida state law, adultery is a criminal misdemeanor. Gov. Jeb Bush is refusing to enforce Florida state law in an effort which could make the case that Michael Schiavo has a clear (and obvious) "conflict of interest", and should not be allowed to continue as Terri's "legal guardian." During the course of the criminal investigation, Terri could be taken into the state's protective custody.
Gov. Jeb Bush has also apparently refused to pursue the allegations by the hospice nurse, Carla Iyer, of Michael Schiavo's alleged attempted murder of Terri by insulin injection.
Gov. Bush has said publicly he will not exceed his authority. However, Jeb Bush is deceiving the people of Florida and the American - the truth is, Gov. Jeb Bush is not using the lawful authority that he has to save Terri Schiavo.
Unless he changes his behavior and acts, his life's legacy may well be that of a Pontius Pilate, who stood by while an innocent woman was killed by the withholding of water, one of life's basic necessities for any one of us.
The 2004 Florida Statutes
798.01 Living in open adultery. – Whoever lives in an open state of adultery shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. Where either of the parties living in an open state of adultery is married, both parties so living shall be deemed to be guilty of the offense provided for in this section.
History.--s. 1, ch. 1986, 1874; RS 2595; GS 3518; RGS 5406; CGL 7549; s. 772, ch. 71-136.
Question from Steve Lefemine to Gibbs Law Firm:
"The Writ of Mandamus I suggested would be through a court - are you telling me that David Gibbs has requested the court to issue a Writ of Mandamus to Gov Jeb Bush and the Florida state Attorney General to charge Michael Schiavo with criminal adultery under the Florida state misdemeanor adultery law? Has David Gibbs also pressed the Governor, not just the court, to do this? And has David Gibbs pressed the Governor, not just the court, to open up an investigation on murder allegations? Not everything must be done through a court first. Charging Michael Schiavo with criminal adultery is an executive branch, law enforcement action, that would later be adjudicated in the courts. Ask the Attorney General, not just the courts, to charge Michael NOW!"
Answer from Matthew Davis, Gibbs Law Firm
"Yes, and we are doing so again later today. We have also done so in the 2nd DCA, the Federal District Court for the Middle District of Florida, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States. We have met with Governor Bush a number of times. We have literally begged every branch of the government to act, in all the ways you have described. They have done what they have done, but they will not pursue the adultery issue or the other criminal issues."
Gov. Jeb Bush: Please Rescue Terri !!!
Re: PLEASE RESCUE TERRI !!!
1) Why isn't a criminal investigation being opened by the Sheriff of Pinellas County, or the State Attorney General of Florida into the allegations by the hospice nurse, Carla Iyer, of Michael Schiavo's alleged attempt to murder Terri by insulin injection -allegations which you are aware of !! Why aren't you and the Florida Attorney General acting on this?!
2) Why hasn't Michael Schiavo been charged with criminal adultery under Florida's state misdemeanor adultery law, with the prima facie evidence of his co-habitation with another woman, and fathering two children by this immoral, 10-year relationship?
3) Why are not the two points above: 1) and 2), sufficient cause to remove Michael Schiavo as the "legal guardian" of Terri, and place Terri under the protective custody of the state ? Doesn't the adultery charge alone indicate an obvious "conflict of interest" for Michael Schiavo ? And Terri is being sentenced to death on the hearsay evidence of one man, this criminal adulterer, who it is alleged also attempted to kill Terri with an insulin injection??
This whole matter is part of your life's legacy, Jeb Bush: don't allow your legacy to be that of Pontius Pilate (Matthew 27:24).
