OLPRB Complaint: HCAO Edwin Widseth


FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE November 13, 2013

OFFICE OF LAWYER PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY BOARD COMPLAINT

EVENSTAD V WIDSETH

1. Attorney Widseth is the Representative from the Hennepin County Attorney's Office in the high-profile sex offender civil commitment (MSOP) provisional discharge case captioned, In Re: The Civil Commitment of Thomas R. Duvall (or similar).

2. Complainant observed in the high-profile Duvall hearing on Friday, November 8, 2013 Mr. Widseth express outrage to the 3-Judge Panel of the Supreme Court Appeal Panel/Judicial Appeal Panel (SCAP/JAP) that attorneys on the opposing side (Minnesota Solicitor General Alan Gilbert, AGO Noah Cashman, and an additional Assistant Attorney General I don't know the identity of currently) had pandered to the media, illegally leaked/released currently private medical records/Risk Assessments of Mr. Duvall to the media, creating a media circus, behaved unethically & illegally, etc.
 3. Mr. Widseth demanded the SCAP impose a strict Protective Order regarding Mr. Duvall's currently private medical records/Risk Assessments, and also to "Seal the Record". Complainant was stunned to see Mr. Widseth proactively approaching Tom Hauser of KSTP-TV during a recess following his urgings to the Court for attorneys to cease trying the case in the media before the public, spin his fabrications to Mr. Hauser about how all 698 Sex Offenders in MSOP (750 closer # w/DOC/MSOP) have similar/identical offense histories as his client, Mr. Duvall, which are "violent" "lengthy" and "horrendous", and tell Mr. Houser if MN doesn't release the State Servings of Duvall, Rydberg and Co. that the Federal Court "will take over this Program, declare it unconstitutional and then the State will have 698 Thomas Duvall's among the public, unsupervised". Mr. Widseth asked Mr. Houser if he could give him his business card and then he gave Mr. Hauser his personal cellular/mobile telephone number and urged Mr. Hauser to call him about the case.

4. Mr. Widesth repeated this conduct to other media representatives who were there: Approaching the media unsolicited, serving up his "ADVERSARIAL" SELF-SERVING NARRATIVE to any/all who would listen: Jana Shortal (Kare-11), Tom Lyden (KMSP/Fox9), Tom Hauser (KSTP-TV5), Pat Kessler (WCCO-TV), Chris Serres (Star-Tribune) and other media representatives unknown to myself, (Thomas Evenstad).

5. Following the Hearing, while victim and victim advocates left (victims had gone public stating candidly and courageously that Mr. Widseth dismissed their victimization at the hands of Mr. Duvall, attempted to sell them that Mr. Duvall was typical of the 700+ men in MSOP and that it was imperative for Public Safety that Mr. Duvall be released, especially since Mr. Duvall posed "very low risk" of reoffending) walked past the Press Conference area, skirting the 
media, Mr. Widseth took it upon himself to go to the podium and continue to lobby for Mr. Duvall's side in the case to the public, via the media:

6. Mr. Widseth excoriated the Minnesota Attorney General, Lori Swanson, accused her and her office PUBLICLY of "playing politics" creating a "media circus", jeopardizing public safety, etc., and stated that:
A) If the SCAP DOES NOT RELEASE DUVALL, THEN MSOP WILL BE RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL, THE FEDERAL COURT WILL ORDER ALL 698 MEN WITH LENGTHY, VIOLENT, HORRENDOUS OFFENSE HISTORIES LIKE MR. DUVALL'S, AND THAT THEY  WILL ALL BE RELEASED UNSUPERVISED.

 This egregious, unethical and violative conduct by Mr. Widseth is in severe discord with his positions advanced on the oral record on November 8, 2013, are patently and easily provably FALSE, and constitute outrageous media pandering to advance his Parties goals/wishes in the supposedly adversarial legal battleground after denigrating the opposing counsel in the case for real and/or contrived/fabricated charges before the SCAP on the record.
I allege these clear, premeditated, well scripted falsehoods/lies are intended to further the State's cause in releasing the next Alfonso Rodriguez, Jr. to do the State's Dirty Work in saving the MSOP from the dicey issues it faced in 2003: (www.GovernorTimPawlenty.com) & today (http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/23785109/released-offender-theyre-ticking-time-bombs ), and/or, at a minimum CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR AND IDEALLY PANIC IN THE GENERAL PUBLIC ABOUT WHAT "WILL"--NOT WHAT MIGHT--HAPPEN IF THE SCAP JUDGES DO NOT CAPITULATE TO HIS LEGAL/PUBLIC BLACKMAILING OF THEM THAT UNLESS THEY CAVE TO HIS PARTIES SIDE, HE WILL SET THE PUBLIC UP TO HAVE THE 3-JUDGES FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER WHEN THE IMMINENT (ACCORDING TO Mr. Widseth's FAIRY TALE/FICTIONAL SCENARIO HE KNOWS IS FICTION AS HE IS VERY FAMILIAR (AS AM I) WITH THE TURAY INJUCTION/LITIGATION IN WASHINGTON STATE 20 YEARS AGO WHERE AFTER THE FEDERAL COURT DID DECLARE THE SVP PROGRAM UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND TAKE OVER THE PROGRAM, NOT ONE MAN WAS RELEASED WITH OR WITHOUT "SUPERVISION", LET ALONE A MASS RELEASE.

THIS CONDUCT IN ADVANCING YOUR ADVERSARIAL POSITION BEFORE THE PUBLIC VIA THE MEDIA WHILE EXCORIATING IN COURT AND PUBLICLY SIMILAR CONDUCT ALLEGED BY THE OPPOSING PARTY FLIES IN THE FACE OF JUSTICE, INTENTIONALLY MISFORMS AND MISLEADS THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE TRUTHS OF MSOP: THERE ARE OVER 200 LEVEL 1 AND LEVEL 2 LOW AND MODERATE RISK SEX OFFENDERS ON DEATH ROW AT MSOP, WHILE THERE ARE SIMILAR OVER 200 LEVEL 3 SEX OFFENDERS IN THE COMMUNITY.
