Carrie Clark: " Weird but kind but also freeing for me to see my old country club friends who were such upstanding citizens that they couldn't speak to me anymore because I was in the paper for getting arrested. I was the the low life junkie and they were all successful upstanding citizens. Now I am not in the paper anymore. And this isn't 1st person who has gotten arrested from my old crowd. I can guarantee more than alcohol was involved. Money talks, until you fall into the mandatory sentencing category, trust me I know...lol "

" Louis Frederick Mahar II, 40, was sentenced today to 30 days in jail after pleading no contest in an assault case in which a television producer suffered a fractured vertebrae, shoulder and torn rotator cuff.
Mahar, co-owner of a large Medford construction company, is due to report to the Jackson County Jail on Jan. 3. 2017However, like others sentenced to jail, he could apply to serve home detention, said Jackson County Deputy District Attorney Alyssa Claseman
The case stemmed from a June 7 2016 incident at a nursing students' graduation party at Agate Ridge Vineyard in Eagle Point.
Mahar touched the breast of Anna Bishop against her will and later attacked her husband,
NBC Dateline Producer Shane Bishop, during a confrontation.
Mahar pleaded no contest to a charge of harassment involving offensive physical contact against Anna Bishop. A second charge of harassment alleging he touched her breast was dismissed in a plea agreement.
He also pleaded no contest to misdemeanor-level fourth degree assault against Shane Bishop.
With a no contest plea, a defendant does not admit guilt but concedes prosecutors could likely prove their case at trial. A no-contest plea exposes a defendant to the same legal sanctions as a guilty plea.
Mahar was also sentenced to two years of probation in which he can consume no intoxicants and have no contact with the Bishops. He must pay restitution, with the amount still to be determined.
Carl Caplan, Mahar's defense attorney, said Mahar had no criminal history and deeply regrets the incident. Caplan said alcohol was a factor in the incident and Mahar feels bad about the injuries Shane Bishop suffered.
Caplan said the restitution would be substantial.
Shane Bishop estimated the restitution could be in the tens of thousands of dollars. He said he suffered a fractured vertebra in his lower back, a fractured shoulder and a torn rotator cuff — for which he will have to undergo surgery.
"My wife and I would like to thank the Jackson County Sheriff's Office and the Jackson County District Attorney's Office for their commitment to pursuing the truth in this case and we're glad this is finally over," Shane Bishop said after the court hearing.
Shane Bishop declined to comment on whether he would file a civil lawsuit against Mahar. He also had no comment on the sentence Mahar received.
Upon exiting the courtroom, Mahar and Caplan said they had no further comment about the case."
County Cracks Down On Whistleblower
AS a long time blogger, Linda Lewis wrote about The Powers That Be in Jackson County and their indiscretions and possible criminal activities.
Her motivation for seeking justice grew after the murder of her brother, Dave Lewis in September 2008 and the subsequent years that followed as Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters was at the helm of investigating his death, and the case grew cold.
In the middle of her grief, Lewis wrote about the people and events that led up to her brother’s murder as she tried to unravel what happened.
Several indisputable facts are clear.
On the early morning of 9/8/2008, an emergency call came in5. There was a cabin fire out near the Keno access road on Dead Indian Memorial Road. Fire trucks were in the middle of responding when a second call came in about a half hour later advising of a second fire, approximately six miles away on the same road. Someone (or more than one person) intentionally poured an accelerant and lit Dave Lewis’ cabin on fire. The criminal(s) fled as Dave was killed-- he was tragically burned beyond recognition.
As she searched for answers, several names kept popping up.
One of those names was Burl Brim. She began to dig into Brim’s past and wrote about his helicopter business, Brim Aviation and other information she gathered. The FAA proposed a $220,000.00 civil penalty against Brim Aviation for allegedly conducting unauthorized external load operations. There were allegations made about his personal life, which Lewis said were all documentable. Brim helicopters were involved in a number of crashes (2 fatalities: one aviation related and one excavation/construction related of Brim's businesses) and Lewis carefully noted each one, as citizen journalists often do.
In December 2015, Burl Brim and Brim Aviation got a judgment against Linda Lewis, prohibiting her from publishing verbally or written; on the internet; via email; through any media including news blog(s) or otherwise; or via any other means or medium of communication of any kind regarding Brim or Brim Aviation. The court essentially placed a gag order. Furthermore, Lewis was required to find and remove anything she had ever written about Brim on the Internet. Blogs, photos, statements and links were ordered to all be deleted.
As Lewis was ordered to do that, the Jackson County Courts deleted her First Amendment right to free speech.
You’d think that would be about as bad as it could get, but Judge Grensky took it a step further this month (March 2016) by issuing a nationwide warrant for her arrest. Although Jackson County courts are aware that Lewis resides in Alaska, and she had representation in court, it seems that the crime of whistleblowing will be met with great force here in Southern Oregon. In court documents, Judge Grensky “indicates he will issue a bench warrant and have Ms. Lewis incarcerated until she appears in court on this matter.” The impact of this ruling will have a chilling effect on independent media and may silence anyone who feels called to speak truth to power.
