When the Kimberlin family appealed the denial of a protective order for their daughter, a Maryland judge warned defendant William Hoge and his accomplice Aaron Walker that they stood on thin legal ice.
Although Judge Audrey Creighton concluded that a lack of evidence of Hoge’s harassment during the previous 30 days made it impossible to grant the requested peace order, she still took time to point out the potential criminal consequences of Hoge’s online behavior.
Creighton made the comments twice: at the end of oral arguments, even talking right over Hoge’s attorney P. Francis Ostronic, and then again while rendering her decision.
I’m just so sad that innocent children are being dragged into this. It just breaks my heart and at some point the people responsible for this mean, vicious blogging may find themselves in criminal court and subsequently behind bars. This is completely unacceptable child abuse of sorts.
[…] I stand behind my remarks that I made earlier about how it’s breaking my heart that innocent children are being victimized by rants and hate mail over the internet that have to do with their father, that have to do with things that happened a long time ago, things that he was sentenced and served his sentence out as far as I know. It’s really inexcusable to bring children into this, whoever’s doing it. And as I said at some point in time if there’s sufficient evidence, and if it rises to the level of criminal conduct and that can be proven in a court of law by the prosecutor’s office, then whoever’s doing this will be in a lot of trouble and possibly behind bars.
While she pointedly did not say that Hoge was guilty of stalking or harassing a minor over the internet, any reasonable person can hear the message in Judge Creighton’s voice: Knock it off or there will be hell to pay.
It is characteristic of Hoge to try speaking with judges after they drop their gavels, and this time was no different. Included at the end of the above audio, you can hear Judge Creighton shut Hoge down during one of these attempts at ex parte communication.
The exchange took place after she had given the Kimberlin family a few moments’ head start in leaving the courthouse to avoid any physical confrontations in the lobby. Aaron Walker, Kimberlin’s uniquely-insane courtroom antagonist, was present for the hearing and has a history of violent bullying in the courthouse.
Despite living in Virginia, Walker’s influence on the proceeding was clear when Ostronic opened by arguing at length that Brett Kimberlin should not be allowed to testify because of a 40 year-old conviction for perjury.
However, Judge Creighton seemed to appreciate that this was just an attempt to prejudice the court against the Kimberlins, as Mr. Kimberlin was not a witness in the hearing and did not act as legal counsel.
Instead, his wife and older daughter took the stand to tell Judge Creighton about their experience as victims of Hoge and Walker.
Fighting tears, Kelsie Kimberlin told the court how the two men had completely disrupted her high school education. The Kimberlin daughters were forced to change schools three times in close succession as each new set of peers discovered the smears and fabrications that Hoge and Walker propagate daily through social media and blogs.
The worst episode was in 2013, when Hoge and others directed their rabid right wing readers to comment on a news article about Kelsie’s budding musical career. That incident was a subject of testimony in both the district court hearing and the appeal Judge Creighton heard.
BU will not be posting the audio of Kelsie’s remarks so as to spare her any further social media torment. But we will report that when her tears turned to rage, the resulting testimony was a virtual flamethrower that left both men reduced to verbal piles of smoking ash.
Courage swelled in her voice as she asked Judge Creighton why Hoge and Walker can’t seem to find anything better to do with their lives than make hers miserable.
She demanded to know why Hoge, a creepy 60-something year-old man and avowed enemy of her father, would even comment in response to questions about whether she is legally old enough to have sex yet.
Gaining in volume and fury, Kelsie made it clear she does not welcome Aaron Walker’s deluded fantasies about ‘saving’ her from her father. In fact, she all but told him to drop dead.
This testimony undoubtedly impressed Judge Creighton, who was moved to make her remarks and then reiterate them while delivering her decision.
Creighton has since retired from the bench.
Inspired by Kelsie’s example, BU stands by our previous reporting in this matter.
And the hits just keep on coming!
I say, Osborne old boy – is there anything else out there we should be apprised of?
Was the flash visible from space?
It’s a damn good thing these new bifocals of mine have Transitions technology built in or a brother would have had his eyeballs poached.
Unreal… So this is why the Kimberlin’s filed criminal charges because Hoge and Walker and their associates were abusibg a minor child. What a lecherous group of scumbags they are. I hope Hoge and Walker end up in prison for a very long time.
Unfortunately the court couldn’t do a damn thing about it – though they absolutely wanted to.
While it would have been a hoot to listen to Kelsie light Hoge up like a Cuban cigar and tear his ass wide open I commend BU for their restraint in considering Miss Kimberlin’s emotions in this matter.
It’s certainly far better treatment any of those assholes would have given her.
So the Kimberlin’s had probable cause to protect their children to seek out criminal charges against Hoge and Walker. Yet Hoge and Walker claim they are innocent when it’s CLEAR as a bell they were equally guilty of harassing behavior.
That’s about the long and short of it, yes.
I also have to take this opportunity to applaud the judge in this case for stating what is patently obvious:
Brett Kimberlin has paid his debt to society. Hoge, Walker or anybody else trying to get him thrown back in prison was never personally affected by the events of Speedway, Indiana.
The Hog is a liar as this judge showed. And the audio you had the other day showed that the Hog lied in that court too. So it follows that the Hog lied about the restitution too. The Hog is a liar and pervert. I am thinking that maybe authorities are conducting a quiet criminal investigation of these creeps and will be swooping in sometime with handcuffs. I would not want to be in the Hog’s shoes right now. How in the hell can that perv sleep at night? Can’t get much lower than that scum.
If they are investigating they’re taking their sweet ass time about doing anything.
She had an excellent point, but one I’m sure Hoge and his sociopathic Internet thugs cannot comprehend: “she’s a fucking CHILD!” His band of Deeply mentally disturbed and obsessive/compulsive psychopaths which comprise his readership even resorted to calling this poor child “like father, like daughter” and saying she was irredeemably doomed to be like her father, or she was acting for the court for one simple reason: SHE WANTED TO BE LEFT THE FUCK ALONE!
I sincerely hope the judge is right too. If hoge’s current case is anything more than his latest vexatious hateful waste of the courts resources, one thing I am sure he can count on is the defendants discovery which would shed some light on his deeply disturbed paranoia and mental illness. Oh, and plenty of public domuments like these, filed into the public record that cast some serious doubt on hoge’s reputation.
If this was his plan clear the Internet of a record of his haircuts in front of a judge, a letter begging the editors of this site to remove the articles would have been a smarter plan.
Lest we forget Walker’s “corruption of blood” statement where he says he doesn’t think the minor child should not have to pay for what he claims her father did. So in effect, both Walker and his sidekick Hoge are now heading into brutally attacking a minor child to get their jollies, which is exactly what Graces Law was meant to prevent. The fact that these guys even think that attacking a minor child for shits and giggles (Walker has an appeal where he claims he has a 1st amendment right to attack any minor child) shows how depraved they actually are.
To be fair he wrote that corruption of the blood is a bad thing, but in his supremely weasel-ey and fat-fuck douche lord patent style managed to write it like “now, it’s not this girl’s fault her father is a pedophile. Did I say so-and-so is a pedophile and he has a daughter out loud? Ok, just making sure.”
It was clearly written in such a way that he wanted people looking for keywords “kimberlin” and even his daughter (like perhaps searching her name for her music as a scout or something) to transfer the maximum amount of mental damage he possibly could. In my opinion, it was clearly worded to be directed at not kimberlin, but his daughter to ruin her reputation and life for anyone searching her family name.
That’s why I agree with the judge; these consequences could ultimately land one or many of them in jail. If they had any concern for the fact that there was an innocent child, nay, children involved in this they wouldn’t have done this shit.
Can you imagine being a poor, innocent, and defenseless child witnessing your parents separate, and a pair of fucking WEASELS show up and try to hasten the process? Then they take to the fucking Internet to destroy your father, mother, and even YOU, a child because Andrew breitbart commanded it in a tweet before he died?
They’re fucking children. They can’t fend for themselves, pay the rent, or even comprehend what happens to their lives during and after a divorce. They’ve got to deal with these human shit stains adding insult to injury by bullying their parents and them online and attacking them through online articles.
These are the people public humiliation was made for. The fucking audacity of the shit they said in that little girl’s article. Shit like “well, k—-e congrats on the music, but btw your father is —-.” Hoge and his readership are all bitter, introverted, chemical abusing mental basket cases who should only be able to access the Internet under direct supervision.
If what they are doing isn’t blatantly illegal it’s still completely deplorable and they should all get a kick in the ass.
I do so agree with this comment. You left nothing out, literally. Great comment.
I’ve had one asshole (View From NL) tell me that Kelsie deserves all the bullying she’s gotten and should continue to get because of her father.
Suspected evidence forger WJJ Hoge is also harassing children? This is former Goddard employee, former business associate of con artist Paul Lemmen and brother in arms with racist and misogynistic RS McCain? That WJJ Hoge?
Wow… what an asshole.
When will this shame on my life end? My husband’s increasingly aggressive attempts to arise even the slightest of movements from his flaccid manhood is getting ridiculous. Please, stop. It wasn’t good when it did work and it certainly is doing more good now sitting unused and unusable alongside your pants pocket. Just the sight of that awful thing makes me imagine what a very old and very, very small Loch Ness monster must look like.
OK, this shows that the Hog has been lying to his readers for years. That mo’fo is really a dirty old man, and this girl told him he was creepy, but he still won’t leave her alone. Here is what I suggest. The Violence Against Women Act was amended to allow federal arrest for harassment that causes serious emotional distress over the internet. It has much stronger teeth than any of the state stalking laws. Call the friggin FBI now!!! Demand that these perverts get arrested. This audio shows that a judge has already found that these morons have violated the statute.
The problem with people like Hoge and Walker is that they spin the fact that they benefited from a technicality into a win. It’s complete vindication, according to them and their mindless readers. These are people who, if Hoge told them he was going to start pooping strawberry frozen yogurt at noon, would start lining up at 11:30 with bowls and spoons. They WANT to believe Hoge’s lies and Hoge NEEDS them to believe their lies. They are PROUD of the damage they have done to this sweet young lady and will inflict more at their earliest convenience unless some court somewhere puts an end to it.
Ask yourself. Who scans the court dockets looking to see if their sworn enemy is having marital problems, and then goes to court to offer to “help” the distraught wife if she will only say what they want her to say? Bless her for having the integrity to tell them to shove their offer.
Hoge sees himself as some sort of God — he breathes life into a lie, and that makes it a living thing. He STILL maintains that I hijacked a server on the day of Super Storm Sandy and used it to send a nasty gram in someone else’s name. He cites as evidence a photoshopped avatar with my name, e-mail address, and an IP address I have never used. And among the 666 legal filings on his Scribd account, there is one document that is not there… his application for a criminal complaint from Feb. 2013 alleging that I hijacked the computer. Not once does he offer even a glimmer of evidence other than a photoshopped fakery that I used the IP address. And now that the application for charges is memory-holed, I can’t use it to show his mendacity.
Hoge and Walker are responsible for so much suffering in regards to their stalking of Tetyana and Kelsie, their endless persecution of Brett Kimberlin as if they had some sort of public duty to act as prosecutors against an imaginary evil that REAL prosecutors have declined to touch since his release from prison. And then there’s the 367 failed attempts to have me convicted of the crime of “tweeting,” with only one of those charges making it to a courtroom — and that was when I let my sense of compassion overrule my common sense and I reached out to offer assistance through contacts at my former employer, the National Institutes of Health, if the Hoges wanted to avail themselves of the clinical research that might help her recover from her cancer.
In fact, the day my wife died, Hoge offered not a word of condolence. He did write a long, oddly-timed post about how his wife’s cancer was in remission, the message being “Schmalfeldt’s wife is dead, but mine is getting better.” He got 148 comments of congratulations for his post, which went on the site while I was waiting for the Anatomy Gifts Registry people to come get Gail’s body. As she lay dying, and knowing that these things have their own schedule, I moved for a delay in Hoge’s peace order appeal (which he eventually lost). Her body was still warm when he filed with the court…
“RESPONDENT ANNOUNCED THAT HIS WIFE DIED ON 17 JUNE, 2015… WHEREFORE MR. HOGE ASKS THAT THE RESPONDENT’S MOTION FOR A DELAY BE DENIED AS MOOT AND FOR OTHER SUCH RELIEF AS THE COURT MAY FIND JUST AND PROPER.”
And now he claims that I “fled the state of Maryland,” instead of deciding to move back to my adopted home town to be nearer to family.
Hoge needs to face the consequences of his actions. He is a uniquely evil person. He lies to your face, quotes Scripture, then shames the very God he claims to worship,
I wish the Kimberlins nothing but success in their efforts to hold Hoge and Walker accountable. I just want to live long enough to see the day when this slick, oily-tongued, degenerate LIAR has to face responsibility for the anguish and terror he and his associates have caused in the lives of so many people.
The Hog is evil personified, Lucifer in the flesh, a liar, pervert, dirty old man, scumbag, and perjurer. He is so evil that words cannot even describe him. John Wayne Gacy evil. God, please dispatch such evil from this earth.
After reading what he did to you and what he did to that poor girl, no punishment is too harsh for the Hog. We need to go back to medieval times to find something suitable for the Hog.
The judge TOLD them their blogs were UGLY and HATEFUL and SHAMEFUL! Do they recognize shame? Do they have any feelings at all other than mindless hatred? Is the destruction of a man’s family SO IMPORTANT to these self-appointed prosecutors that the collateral damage to their victim’s children is justified somehow? Christ Be Jesus, but Hoge and Walker are DISGUSTING!
Jeffrey Dahmer evil — I can’t actually think of too many notorious humans who are as evil as the Hog without resorting to the slimebags who worked for Adolf. One of the things that the Hog stands out for is the absolute relish in which he inflicts suffering, and the pleasure he receives from seeing the suffering he has caused to others. That bliss from causing harm and pain is the plot line of many a famous horror novel. The Hog is not merely a sociopath but rather is so evil that his evil can only be described through comparisons to other Frankensteins of the world such as Dahmer and Gacy. I wonder if he is so evil that even a stake in his heart would not stop him.
