-AGAINST- PAUL CHAPPIUS JR #15-cv-6423-FPG

To be brief on December 7th, 2006 assigned counsel informed the court that "EXTREME EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCE" would be an issue. Upon which he stated that "He was fully aware of the requirements" under the providing C.P.L.250.10 Notice of Intent to Present Psychiatric Evidence. The assigned counsel never filed C.P.L.250.10 and in my mental condition I had no knowledge of law. In the attempt to find mental help dealing with the situation I found out the 250.10 after discovering assigned counsel wrote it on discovery. Being he didn't file timely, I filed myself Pro SE August 8, 2007. To no avail, no one would assist me, I wrote judges, bar association, head public defender to see record for proof. In these [EED] cases burden of proof shift to the defendant. It is almost impossible to prove mind state with out testimony of a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. Guilt isn't the question only MENTAL DEFECT. I hope my case could at least be the starting point that C.P.L.250.10 be mandatory so people could at least have an opportunity to have valid testimony of mental defect automatically. I have been a father behind prison walls for almost 14 years. My children are the greatest thing I have ever done. Returning home would benefit them a great deal. 3 of my 6 my children have no mother or father. My 60 year old mother has raised them on her own besides the trailers and visits I rarely see them. To have at least one parent at home would be a god sent. 4 sons and son's need fathers that also helps a community. I received a asbestos license while incarcerated. It is my goal to be a asbestos supervisor and a good provider for my family. Far as community goes I am a student minister who has ran organizations far as chairman for liaison committee, football coach, boxing trainer, and facilitator over community events. There are many more examples of helping others.. Just need the opportunity to show CHANGE.
