Court records on child rape case completely disappear

Yesterday, Write Into Action exclusively reported that all court records have vanished from the Register of Actions regarding a 2016 child rape case filed in Polk County, Minnesota against George Robert Lyons.
Today, further investigation reveals Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones appears to be involved in some very strange and suspicious behavior (as usual).
Evidence shows something grossly illegal appears to be taking place within the Polk County, Minnesota and Grand Forks County, North Dakota judicial systems – at the court administration level.
I’ll show you.
The bizarre and suspicious nature surrounding the George Lyons sexual assault case was first noticed and reported upon by Valley News Live on January 16, 2016.
The Valley News report filed by Neil Carlson called out the fact that sexual misconduct runs in the Lyons family and George Lyons’ brother, Matthew Lyons, is serving a life sentence.
Carlson also reported that George Lyons, after bonding out of jail, announced on Facebook that he would be marrying an assistant state prosecutor in the spring of 2016.
Grand Forks, ND (Valley News Live) We have uncovered new, strange and unsettling information regarding a story we first brought you yesterday.
Thirty-five year old George Lyons of Grand Forks has been charged with having sex with a 13-year old girl in East Grand Forks. And it’s an alleged crime, that apparently runs in the family.
George Lyons is a free man today after posting 15-thousand-dollars cash bail. He was charged with 2 counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a juvenile relative in East Grand Forks.
Meanwhile, East Grand Forks Police say Lyons was also under investigation in Grand Forks County for a similar incident. Assistant States Attorney, Jason McCarthy says he can’t comment on ongoing investigations. But, George Lyons brother, Matthew Lyons was sentenced to life in prison here in 2014, for the continuous sexual abuse of a child.
The relationship between all these factors gets even stranger. George Lyons had listed on facebook that he was engaged to marry an Assistant Prosecutor here in Grand Forks this Spring. She has not returned inquires to confirm or deny that relationship, as George Lyons gets ready for his criminal trial, and his brother Matthew continues to serve his life sentence in prison.
If he’s convicted, George Lyons could be sentenced to as much as 30 years in prison for the charges in Polk County.
George Lyons still claims he’s engaged to a Grand Forks States Attorney AND his rape case files all vanished.
So, here’s the fact-pattern.
George Robert Lyons, Grand Forks, was charged in January, 2016 with first degree sexual misconduct against a young minor, which was widely reported.
On Thursday, January 7, 2016 the Grand Forks Herald referred to “court documents” and a “criminal complaint” pertaining to criminal sexual conduct charges filed against George Lyons in Polk County, Minnesota District Court.
There is no record of the “criminal complaint” and “court documents” referred to by the Herald.
Note: Write Into Action reached out to Kathy Narlock, Polk County Court Administrator, for an explanation as to why the entire case vanished from the website, but received no response as of the time of this publishing.
So George Lyons was charged in January, 2016.
Move ahead to February, 2017.
This week, George Lyons told an employer and several others in Grand Forks (including me) that he is engaged to Carmelle Mattison, the prosecuting attorney on the Delvin Shaw murder trial.
The Shaw murder trial is presently underway in Grand Forks.
Delvin Shaw was convicted in June, 2014 for the murder of Jose Lopez. However, the North Dakota Supreme Court subsequently ruled the Grand Forks District Court “misapplied the law and abused its discretion in admitting evidence against 32-year-old Delvin Lamont Shaw, who was found guilty by a jury last year for the June 24, 2014, murder of Jose Luis “Joe” Lopez.
There is no longer any court record that George Lyons was charged with repeatedly raping a child; and he’s running around declaring a romantic relationship with States Attorney Mattison.
Interestingly, North Dakota court records show George Lyons has a criminal history that includes Felony Theft and Facilitation of the Delivery of Methamphetamine.
Pay close to attention to the details reported by the Herald.
A Grand Forks man is facing criminal sexual conduct charges after East Grand Forks police arrested him Wednesday for engaging in sexual acts with a minor.
George Robert Lyons, 35, was charged in Polk County District Court in Crookston with first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct, both felonies.
The charges stem from claims he had oral sex and inappropriately touched a person under 16 years of age with whom Lyons had a “significant relationship,” according to court documents. The incident occurred Jan. 20, 2014, at an East Grand Forks residence, according to a criminal complaint.
– Grand Forks Herald / Thursday, January 7, 2016
It’s very clear that everything that occurred in the Court occurred in Polk County, Minnesota.
There is NO RECORD whatsoever of that Polk County, Minnesota court case in the Register of Actions for the State of Minnesota courts.
Enter the ever-embattled Grand Forks, North Dakota States Attorney David Jones.
According to the Grand Forks County, North Dakota Register of Actions, on January 4, 2016, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones filed for extradition of George Robert Lyons from Polk County, Minnesota.
Here’s the problem with that.
That’s two days before George Lyons was reported to be arrested.
The North Dakota Register of Actions show Jones filed for “Extradition” and the hearing was held by ITV.
“Extradition” is the ONLY entry in the North Dakota system regarding George Lyons in that annual time window.
And the North Dakota ‘Extradition’ case is now CLOSED.
And there you have it.
The rape of a child disappears from the record in TWO STATES!
