Now comes, Jerry James Stanton, a sovereign free white inhabitant of the Union state of Michigan, who is over 21 years old and who has the rights to which all men who are free are entitled. Who is not under the power of another, such as the implied jurisdiction of any Corporation or Government and I have the right to make valid or not any contract by my actions. In short, I am Sovereign. I live in honor and now state for the record in affidavit form.

Lawful Notice of abduction and unlawful imprisonment and taking of private property.

On July 20th 2011 about, 6 P.M. I was traveling in my private noncommercial car on private personal business, going west on U.S. 12 a Federal right away for free passage on the land though the CORPORATE CITY OF COLDWATER Michigan. When I was forced off the road by flashing emergency lights, and abducted off private property parking lot under the pretence of arrest by an armed man with a gun named, Lewis Eastmead, ID No; 25 a employee of the Corp; of the CITY OF COLDWATER. My body and private car were searched, my private property car was stolen without warrant or arrestsupported by probable cause and taken without consent or lawful authority. All my private property was taken from me, including my private car except for my clothes that were on my body at the time, without a receipt being given or authority shown.

I was taken and lodged in BRANCH COUNTY JAIL, against my consent and locked in a drunk holding location, then a holding cell without access to phone to obtain legal counsel or ability to notify family or friends of my abduction and to get them as witnesses for my defense and to witness these crimes. I was denied access to paper, writing materials, or a law dictionary to write a Writ of Habeas Corpus for the purpose of release from unlawful imprisonment. Was told many times I would have to sign and cooperate before the sheriff department was required to give me any natural rights.

The Sheriff Department’s sign in rule, is signing a commercial agreement, in order to exercise ones unalienable rights, which would automatically be null and void and a violation of the Michigan Constitution. No person has a lawful right to impair, a man’s right to contract or force a private man into a commercial contract with a fictitious capitis deminutio name on the heading, in order to exercise one’s unalienable right to find a lawful legal counsel and to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his or her favor. This would also be a bill of attainder and expressly forbidden by the constitution.



§ 20 Rights of accused in criminal proceedings.

Sec. 20. In every criminal prosecution, the accused shall have the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury, which may consist of less than 12 jurors in prosecutions for misdemeanors punishable by imprisonment for not more than 1 year; to be informed of the nature of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him or her; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his or her favor; to have the assistance of counsel for his or her defense; to have an appeal as a matter of right, except as provided by law an appeal by an accused who pleads guilty or nolo contendere shall be by leave of the court; and as provided by law, when the trial court so orders, to have such reasonable assistance as may be necessary to perfect and prosecute an appeal.

§ 10 Attainder; ex post facto laws; impairment of contracts.

Sec. 10.

No bill of attainder, ex post facto law or law impairing the obligation of contract shall be enacted.

A bill of attainder (also known as an act of attainder or writ of attainder) is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them without benefit of a judicial trial.

The U.S Supreme court ruled:

The respondents are not immune from such a proceeding. Only recently, this Court recognized that "the action of an officer of the sovereign (be it holding, taking or otherwise legally affecting the plaintiff's property) can be regarded as so 'illegal' as to permit a suit for specific relief against the officer as an individual . . . if it is not within the officer's statutory powers or, if within those powers . . . if the powers, or their exercise in the particular case, are constitutionally void." Larson v. Domestic and Foreign Commerce Corp., 337 U.S. 682, 701-702. The same is true here, where the acts complained of are beyond the officer's authority under the Executive Order.*fn13

On July 21, 2011, I was forced into a room against my consent by two sheriff deputies, placed before a TV monitor where a David Coyle claimed he was a judge and was giving me an arraignment hearing. To the best of my recall, I stated; I was there only under duress and challenged his jurisdiction and authority first thing. It was never shown or proved, I never consented or made any plea before him. Coyle claimed he could plead and would plead for me, without my consent and did so against my objection.

On July 24, 2011 I was forced into chains and taken to Branch County Court house by the Branch County Sheriff’s Department. A David Coyle again claimed to be a judge in this matter again. The first thing I did was to challenge jurisdiction of the judge and court and standing of the plaintiff. Again David Coyle refused to show and prove jurisdiction, no plaintiff present.

David Coyle brought in an adult man, he claimed to be a attorney for me, against my consent. I had never seen or talked to this man previous to this occasion. David Coyle allowed this stranger to testify against me in a court without jurisdiction, without being sworn in, and without first hand knowledge or proof of any statements made. Denying Jerry James Stanton any due process, absent of a lawful complaint, absent of a Corpus delicti, absent of a injured party, acting without jurisdiction makes the action by this group of STATE LICENSED ATTORNEY’S void on its face and are being returned as void.

(Note) June 9, 2009 I publish a three quarter page article on the corruption in Branch County Courts and law enforcement, that was sent to about twenty seven thousand homes and business’s in the area. David T Coyle and Brent Weigle were one of the first names mentioned. Even if they were lawful judges and all jurisdictional issue’s were shown and proved on the record neither could ever qualify as a unbiased judge and would have recusal of their self’s as judge.

  1. Affiant hereby returns without dishonor, and without prejudice, the attached fictitious void judgments Notice/Bill of the 3-1 District Court Branch County, as claimed to be created by, its Magistrate/Judge.
  1. Affiant is not now, never has been, and can never be legally identified as “STANTON/JERRY”, STANTON JERRY JAMES”, and/or “STANTON/JERRY/JAMES”, as indicated on the notices he now returns without dishonor and without prejudice.
  1. § 1 Defines a name in relevant part as "the word or combination of words by which a person is distinguished from other individuals..." Petition of Dengler, 246 N.W. 2d 758 (N.D. 1976).
  1. This private man is not required to answer or respond to such [Capitis Deminutio] name.

Blacks Law Dictionary 7th Edition [Capitis Deminutio] [ Latin “reduction of status]


Jurisdiction was challenged by this writer, a private man, in a forced appearance in 3-A court and a David Coyle proceeded without jurisdiction being shown or proved and unlawfully claiming his own jurisdiction and authority without fact, law or evidense.

By special appearance, I Jerry James Stanton, challenges this said Court’s jurisdiction, David Coyle’s or a Brent Weigle’s authority, plaintiffs standing to even arrest anyone and take private property without a signed warrant in this action or any action against me in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Until these lawful requirements are meet as required by law, this private man stands on his unalienable rights not to be forced in to a commercial agreement or a process that does not recognize his unalienable nature rights as acquired by the Michigan Constitution and endless case law. My presence at these unlawful proceedings so far has been by the use of fraud, deception, unlawful force and imprisonment. This writer has and will return all documents from said persons claiming to be judges, Attorneys, legal counsel and law enforcement officers as void till all documentation of jurisdiction, standing of plaintiff, lawful authority are shown, proven on the record, and all documents have my proper lawful Christian name, address on them and are properly signed by there creator.

I, Jerry James Stanton, do this as an unalienable natural right, which no government actor has the authority to take away. As evidenced by and stated by US Supreme Court:

As in our intercourse with our fellow-men certain principles of morality are assumed to exist, without which society would be impossible, so certain inherent rights lie at the foundation of all action, and upon a recognition of them alone can free institutions be maintained. These inherent rights have never been more happily expressed than in the Declaration of Independence, that new evangel of liberty to the people: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' — that is so plain that their truth is recognized upon their mere statement — 'that all men are endowed' — not by edicts of Emperors, or decrees of Parliament, or acts of Congress, but 'by their Creator with certain inalienable rights' — that is, rights which cannot be bartered away, or given away, or taken away except in punishment of crime — 'and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to secure these' — not grant them but secure them — 'governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.'

(emphasis added)

Butchers' Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746, 756 4 S.Ct. 652 (1884)

There is no mysticism in the American concept of the State or of the nature or origin of its authority. We set up government by consent of the governed, and the Bill of Rights denies those in power any legal opportunity to coerce that consent. West Virginia Bd. of Ed. v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624, 641 (1943).

“The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections. " (emphasis added) West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnett 319 U.S. 624, 638 (1943)(Opinion, J. Jackson)
