KingCast and Mortgage Movies See Former Clinton Pal Mary McCulley Get Screwed by US Bank after $6M Fraud Verdict Against Them.
I'm in a rush but I'll put some text in here later. For now read Liberty Road Media's journal entry and here is a Mary McCulley FB Page.
Note the updated Liberty Road Journal Entry from 7 May 2014 containing an interview with Ms. McCulley, excerpted below and written by Clinton Kirby and Glenn Augenstein:
Like many people fighting foreclosure, Ms. McCulley first contacted government agencies for help. It was later discovered that prior to recording, the deed of trust to her property had been altered by Tom Cahill (formerly of American Land Title Company) without her knowledge or consent. Among the agencies she contacted was the FBI. “So the sad thing to me is that I had undisputed facts that there was a forgery. And the FBI just [said], you know–’Have a nice day’–and they shoved me under the bus. And so did pretty much every other government agency that I went to.”
During this time, Ms. McCulley almost gave up. “At my trial with US Bank, it was proven that their actions were so malicious and heinous—they drove me to a suicide attempt. And you know who I wrote my letter to when I was going to kill myself? The judge. I didn’t write it to my mom or my brother—I said, ‘Dear Judge Brown, I quit. They win.’ And went on to explain the fact that the title company’s lying, the bank’s lying, the lawyers are lying—how can I possibly fight this case when officers of the court are going to lie under oath?” On April 25, 2012, Ms. McCulley was arrested on several charges, including a felony Assault with a Weapon. Ms. McCulley was held on a $1 million bond.
At trial the jury passed on all but one of the charges, and came in with a guilty verdict for a misdemeanor assault charge. Ms. McCulley was sentenced to 6 days. After serving 309 days (303 more than the sentence), she was released. Undeterred, Ms. McCulley did not give up the fight. While incarcerated she contacted a paralegal who agreed to help her write an appeal of her unfavorable court decision, which was eventually heard by the Supreme Court of Montana. “So I’m in jail, and I’m filing the appeal—and you don’t have anything but an ink pen—but I had a pay phone and I found a paralegal, this guy Alex. And he came, and I told him the story and he helped me write it and we got it to the Supreme Court.”
