Black Male Human Rights Violation and False Charges

Update posted by Michelle Godfrey On Mar 15, 2017

Richard was seen by the court appointed psychologist, and as expected, they doctor did not think Richard is was mentally ill in any way. In fact- this doctor requested a biographical essay from Richard because he's so interesting. As if we have time for that?

Anyways, he's up and moving around more but he has been sleeping more than usual. He has some more doctor's appointments and we will be meeting with some attorney's next week at the Innocence conference.

We are hoping the DA will take a closer look at the facts of the case and dismiss the charges, but if not we are prepared to go all the way to trial to defend the fact that CHP was negligent and could have prevented the accident when he asked for directions minutes before.

Thanks again for all the support during this difficult time. I will be updating again soon with scans of his clean toxicology reports.

Hello friends,

Thank you for all your supportive efforts to help us. We have been to the doctors nearly every day the last 2 weeks, lots to do without a vehicle. He has numerous problems still physically. I am very low on energy as Richard is extremely exhausted coming down from Haldol, I'm the only one able to physically keep our home and business going. I believe it is finally exiting his system slowly, however he doesn't have much energy.

This was not a drug that Richard needed, any odd behavior from Richard was/is symptomatic of being in shock with a head injury (large bump) after a terrible car accident, ACCIDENT being the key word, and then drugged when arriving to the hospital (correction after reading police notes). Richard was unaware that he was on this drug so he was unable to express how the symptoms were affecting him. These notes also say that Richard was complaining that his chest hurt and this was not treated as a symptom of shock but rather as something a mentally ill person would say??

Richard will soon be meeting with the court appointed therapist to show he's not mentally ill. His symptoms of shock are listed in the police report and medical records from UCSD: He was talking out of context, rambling, and very confused, with a head injury. They wrote down several times that despite not seeing toxicology results, they assumed he was on DRUGS. These people did not act professionally in any way, they gave him lots of other medications that have lots of side effects including nausea, constipation, fatigue, drowsiness, confusion, tremors, sweats, depression, and much more. They drugged him, said he waved his rights when he was rambling, and then they wrote that he was asking for help the only way he could after he was unable to communicate unaware he was drugged.

They should have let him sleep but they kept him awake by asking him questions over and over again. This was absolutely torturesome as this antipsychotic has side effects. The reaction to shock and then the the antipsychotics is now being used against him in court to say he is mentally unstable.

This is what we need a criminal attorney to defend Richard for, all donations help us tremendously as Richard has been unable to make soap for our business, he is unable Thanks for your compassion and understanding.

Since he has known he was drugged, he is able to take steps to remove the drug from his symptom. He has been very quiet and sleeping a lot lately, he has a CT scan appointment coming up, and his doctor will be reading all the medical records collected from these people who have abused Richard.

We need a civil attorney immediately as well to file a case against the city, Richard must be compensated for the amount of work he has missed, and the amount of damages he has incurred by being drugged without his knowledge, tortured, and prejudged/profiled, and incarcerated without proper medical attention.

If you know a lawyer interested in this case please have them reach me at [email protected]

Thanks again,

Michelle Godfrey

Today was a difficult day as we received information that Richard was force drugged in the ambulance through IV with an antipsychotic while he was in shock. The statement from the police is completely false full of lies and mistakes and cross canceling information.

We are only now realizing why he is currently not able to remain on top of work neither mentally or physically due to these injuries as this drug can have permanent damage on the brain and nervous system, it has definitely affected Richard's ability to recover. There is no ability to find out how much was given to him, it could have been an overdose for all we know. Haldol is a very terrible antipsychotic with dangerous side effects that include insomnia, lock jaw, permanent ticks and facial clenching, mental retardation, impotence, scattered racing thoughts, overwhelming feelings of terror and guilt, as well as other completely unhelpful and traumatic not to mention dangerous effects.

We need a criminal attorney because the DA is bringing all kinds of false information into the case. We have lots of witnesses and evidence but the Public defender is not helping. We appreciate any referrals but we especially need donations to meet the retainer cost for a lawyer immediately. Thanks again for your compassion and support.
