On July 9, 2012 the Honorable Tamara Yon forwarded an affidavit and complaint to the Minnesota Lawyer’s Board per rule Rule 8(b), Rules on Lawyers Professional Responsibility, states,

No investigation shall commence on a complaint by or on behalf of a party represented by court appointed counsel, insofar as the court appointed attorney alleges incompetent representation by the attorney in the pending matter. Any such complaint shall be summarily dismissed with without prejudice. The Director’s dismissal shall inform the complainant that the complaint may be sent to the chief district judge or trial court judge involved in the pending matter. The Judge may, at any time, refer the matter to the Director for investigation.

The affidavit sets forth the details of an alleged illegal plot and attempt by a State Prosector (EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad) and State Public Defender (Michael LaCoursiere) to frame me (Timothy Charles Holmseth) with perjured testimony from uniformed police officers (Sgt. Detective Chris Olson and Polk County Deputy Jesse Haugen) if I did not agree to an Alford (no-contest) plea.

I accepted the Alford plea on October 29, 2012.

City Attorney Ronald Galstad then proactively asked Honorable Yon if Attorney LaCoursiere could remain as my attorney (his represenation of me was suppose to end that day but Galstad interjected into the matter to keep LaCoursiere in place).

After Galstad obtained the Alford plea, he then attempted to convict me a month later through a standard court motion asking the Judge to adjudicate me guilty.

The attempt required serious misconduct by Galstad and LaCoursiere because it’s success hinged upon keeping me un-informed about the Motion. Lt. Rodney Hajicek (quietly) served Galstad’s Motion to LaCourisere (the lawyer that should not have been my lawyer) two days before the hearing, and then LaCoursiere did not notify me so I could correct any issue that might have existed.

The plot was disrupted when I caught on at the last second and confronted LaCourisere in an email, which I was prepared to show the Judge.

Galstad became furious his plan didn’t work, and the next day the EGFPD swore out an affidavit to a District Judge requesting a Search and Seizure Warrant for my home-office. The police seized my hard-drive and ruined it before returning it.

The following letter was sent to East Grand Forks Mayor Lynn Stauss on April 30, 2012.

Timothy Charles Holmseth
320 17th Street N.W.
Unit # 17
East Grand Forks, MN

In Re: Public Documents / Official Misconduct

April 30, 2012

Lynn Stauss
City of East Grand Forks
East Grand Forks, MN

Mayor Stauss,

I am contacting you in regards to a legal situation between the City of East Grand Forks and me.

The following is a schedule of communications made regarding this matter.


Public document request to City made to EGF PD


Public document request made to City at EGF PD


Public document request to City made to EGF PD


Complaint submitted to Police Chief Hedlund against Lt. Rodney Hajicek


Response received from Chief Hedlund


4-02-12 Complaint submitted to City of East Grand Forks City Council


Synopsis – The Blackmail of Timothy Charles Holmseth – Kidnapping Inc – submitted to City


4th request for public documents submitted to Chief Hedlund


Complaint filed to Chief Hedlund against Sgt. Chris Olson, Lt. Hajicek, and Ronald Galstad – copied to City file


New information submitted to Chief Hedlund – mass purchase of web domains one day before arrest – copied to City file


Letter to Mayor Stauss – copied to City file

Note: If any reader of this document needs a copy of a file, contact me at tholmseth@wiktel.com and I will furnish it.

As you can see, I submitted my first request for public documents on 09-23-11. I believe seven months should be ample time for the City to fill a public document request.

The City of East Grand Forks brought criminal charges against me on November 21, 2011. My requests for public records and police reports began before my arrest and the stone-walling continues to this very day.

As you will note in Chief Hedlund’s response to me dated 04-10-12 he asked me to submit my document request for yet a fourth time, and indicated it should be sent directly to him.

The City’s failure to satisfy my document request cannot be perceived as an innocuous oversight.

As a reporter and author I learned the truth about a missing child named HaLeigh Cummings in 2009. I also received hours of volatile and sensitive audio files of licensed professionals committing crimes that could result in those people going to prison.

As is shown in the document THE BLACKMAIL OF TIMOTHY CHARLES HOLMSETH – THE PRICE OF EXPOSING KIDNAPPING INC the assault on me has been elaborate and well-organized.

Records in possession of the City of East Grand Forks are going to reveal a City official purchased records from the State of Florida, and upon reviewing those files, learned far too late how derelict, incompetent and irresponsible he, and the leadership of the local police department had been for two and a half years.

The public documents I am requesting contain the names and harassing activities of some of the participants of the blackmail and extortion brought against me. The public documents are going to reveal that although I called the police and asked for help; I was ignored.

The perpetual decision to withhold documents from me could now even be perceived, in the mind of a reasonable person, or juror, as criminal.

In September of 2011 I personally visited the police station to advise Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek that a man named XXX, convicted felon, had been advising his colleagues in Florida he was planning to kill me. His XXX, XXX, was allegedly present while he brandished an illegal assault rifle and vowed he was going to shoot me.

I was advised that if I attended a court hearing, motioned XXX, I would be killed shortly after arriving at the airport.

In February of 2012 XXX and XXX XXX were both interviewed by the FBI’s organized crime task force in Florida regarding an extortion-for-cash plot. It is a matter of police record Mafia hit-men were telephoning select individuals and demanding money under threat of physical mutilation and death.

Information and investigative product in the possession of the FBI will show XXX was communicating with these hit-men on the telephone, sending text messages, and directly implicating XXX in the plot.

On March 16, 2012 a man was shot in connection with the extortion and threats. I was provided with a copy of a photo of the man with a bullet hole through him. I have been advised to be careful who I talk to.

While I have been relentlessly pursued and stalked by associates and affiliates of organized crime, the City of East Grand Forks has refused to honor their very own policy to furnish public documents upon request.

After seven months and four written requests I still have not been given the public records.

The appearance of impropriety grows as the City of East Grand Forks appears to be hiding documents and readily communicating with an associate of the South Florida Mafia.

I am hoping this information is valuable to you, moving forward.
