NCFM is Denied Records by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office in the Case of Kit Martin and Files an Appeal and Response

By NCFM

As our readers who have been following the case of Major Kit Martin, in late September we filed two open records act requests with the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General.  We posted those requests in article on September 27th:https://ncfm.org/2021/09/news/courts-news/court-cases/ncfm-files-open-records-requests-with-the-kentucky-attorney-general-in-the-wrongful-conviction-of-christian-kit-martin/

After some initial email exchanges between NCFM and the AG’s Office to clarify some delay and administrative issues and initial denials, we were denied certain records and since filed an appeal, resulting in another denial and a response to their denial.

As you read our requests, appeals and responses, many of you know intimate details of the case and can read between the lines.

Several good things came about and were learned by the televised trial and subsequent Dateline segment.  We opine that as many as eight or more persons who testified for the prosecution committed perjury, meaning they flat out lied.

Additionally, some who were interviewed by various news organizations reporting on this case including the Dateline segment, were not only lying, but seemed to be making things up as they went along, trying foolishly to make their story sound ever more dramatic than the last time they told it.

Essentially some people testifying and appearing in interviews, and one person in particular, have told outlandish dramatic stories, to make their plight seem all the more harrowing.  The only problem is we have documents that debunk these claims and there is information that is out there that will add further proof to debunk these lies.

NCFM has been advocating and investigating the cases of Kit Martin since early 2015 and have reviewed tens of thousands of pages of documents in both of these cases and spent several thousand hours conducting research.  We have recently been authorized to begin releasing some of these documents that corrupt cops and prosecutors don’t want the public to see.

There is also an emerging trend in that some public officials in Christian County have begun to ‘leak’ information as well as numerous residents that have begun to speak up, and who are dismayed and disgusted at the seemingly decades long pattern and practice of corruption in Christian County Kentucky.

Anyone with a modicum of common sense and who watched the trial knows full well that prosecutors had no desire to learn the truth.  In fact, they did everything they could, both legal and illegal to prevent the truth from being learned.  Their sole purpose was to convict Kit Martin by any means necessary.  They provided no actual timeline of the crimes, but rather ‘invented’ one based on Kit Martin’s movements and alleged movements to fit their narrative.

NCFM’s continued mission is to expose the truth in the Kit Martin case, to one day hope to see corrupt prosecutors, ‘Nifonged,’ a reference to the infamous and criminally corrupt North Carolina District Attorney Mike Nifong who attempted to wrongfully convict four innocent students of rape.  Nifong was eventually exposed, was disbarred, and went to jail.

NCFM’s continued mission is to expose the liars, the complicit, and the criminally corrupt in this case in the hopes to see some, if not all someday wearing orange jumpsuits.  The evidence and proof is there, it’s more of a matter of hiding the truth and preventing transparency.

That is the reason why NCFM filed open records act requests to further expose the truth.

We have included several documents in this post, and we will allow our readers to make up their own minds.  The original open records act requests are linked above, and we will provide our readers with additional documents that can be downloaded.  There were some communications, denials, and delays during the course of this effort, and we have provided the pertinent ones for review.

On October 25, 2021, NCFM received a denial of our request, and you can click on the link to download a copy of that document: 211025 Email response from AG re Denial of Open Records Request.pdf

On November 11, 2021, NCFM filed an 8-page appeal with an emphasis on the vast public interest supporting the release of the information.  Click on the image to download our appeal: 211111 Appeal of KY AG Refusal to Provide Records.pdf

On November 18, 2021, NCFM received the 6-page denial of our appeal.  Click on the image to download a copy of the letter”: 211118 KY AG Appeal Denial.pdf

On November 24, 2021, NCFM forwarded a response to their denial which also included another open records act request.  Click on the image to download a copy of the NCFM response: 211124 NCFM Response to KY Appeal Denial.pdf

Besides the lack of transparency, there seems to be another problem, or rather an undisputed violation of the official Kentucky Attorney General’s Open Records Policy.  Here is a link to that policy that went into effect on June 29, 2021: https://ag.ky.gov/AG%20Publications/Open%20Records%20Policy%202021.pdf

That policy specifically names Assistant Attorney General Chaz English, the same gentleman we have been communicating with, as the official ‘Records Custodian.’  What is odd, is that the policy specifically states that the ‘Records Custodian’ ‘shall not participate in the adjudication of an appeal under the Act.’  Here is a snippet of the first page of that policy that can be found at the link above.

So….. if there is a policy, specifically prohibiting the Records Custodian from participating in an appeal of a denial of an open records request, why is the Records Custodian participating in an appeal of a denial of an open records request???

Why would Mr. English violate this policy?  Is Attorney General Daniel Cameron aware of the policy violation by Mr. English?  Could this policy violation be a violation of the Kentucky State Bar Professional Rules of Conduct?  Could this policy violation and unlawful denial of public records be considered a violation of Title 18 U.S. Code § 1343, Wire Fraud since it was sent via electronic mail?

We don’t have the answers to those questions yet, but there are certainly questions as to the lack of transparency by the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General.

For the thousands of Kentucky residents and the tens of thousands across the country and in other countries who have an interest in this case, please feel free to download all of our documents, share them and demand transparency and accountability for this absolute gross miscarriage of justice.
