Stop the Malicious Acts of separation and harassment of families through the justice system by police

On February 7, 2022, Jerome Doughty was stopped about a block from my home 212 Martin Luther King Avenue, Hattiesburg, MS., arrested, and taken to Forrest County Jail in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and held in Forrest County Jail due to a foreign warrant (due to lack of appearance for court) On February 07, 2022, at 8:07:05 PM my husband, Jerome Doughty was placed under arrest while making repairs of my car the 2011 Mazda 6 (silver).
The Hattiesburg Police supposedly stopped him for an expired tag, although, I am certain the stop was more so related to the unnecessary and constant harassment by police of my family and I for the past several years up to this period of time. Being aware of the most recent damages to the vehicle which are associated with the acts of police and other individuals within the community which I have reported constantly.
On February 7, 2022, Jerome Doughty was stopped, arrested, and taken to Forrest County Jail in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and held in Forrest County Jail due to a foreign warrant (due to lack of appearance on a court date he wasn’t aware of concerning non-payment of his fine.) On February 07, 2022, at 8:07:05 PM my husband, Jerome Doughty was placed under arrest while making repairs to my car, the 2011 Mazda 6 (silver).
The Hattiesburg Police supposedly stopped him for an expired tag, although, I am certain the stop was more so related to the unnecessary and constant harassment by police of my family and I for the past several years up to this period of time to steal and gain possession of my property to get our funds. Being aware of the most recent damages to the vehicle which are associated with the acts of police and other individuals within the community which I have reported constantly.
The warrant issued for his arrest was concerning a previous charge and conviction of a crime he didn’t commit, which during the hearing I’m sure the decision was made without the presence of an attorney. The revocation hearing sentencing was related to a probation violation for being unable to make his reports to his probation officer and being unable to make payments on his fine of the amount of $2,000. He was ordered to begin payment on December 12, 2020, in the amount of $100.00 monthly.
Eventually, he was taken to Harrison County Sheriff's Jail where he was held until he appeared before the judge (Judge Dotson of Gulfport, MS). However, from the date of his arrest, I have constantly called the facilities; the jail (Forrest County Jail and Harrison County Jail), the new probation officer (Tiffany Smith), and the courthouse for information regarding the court dates. My husband Jerome Doughty wasn’t given any accurate information regarding his court date to allow an attorney to be present during the unexpected revocation hearing of which he was told it would be a week later and this lack of information disallowed him or I to provide this information for our attorneys. When I contacted the court clerk, she stated there was an error of the court date of March 2, 2022, which was actually the hearing concerning the status of payment on his fine and Jerome actually appeared for the revocation hearing by video conference with Judge Dotson on February 24, 2022. On February 24, 2022, he was sentenced to 7 years with 3.5 years to serve incarcerated and 3.5 years of the sentence to be served on parole. I received this information the day after the hearing when I contacted the probation officer (Tiffany Smith). Immediately, on the same day of his sentence I contacted my attorney as well as other attorneys for further assistance to appeal the court decision or other procedures to take to file an appeal or to request the court for other options for Jerome Doughty to serve his sentence within his rights such as house-arrest considering it was his first offense and the fact of during his sentence was the year of the pandemic Covid-19 and governmental offices were not in full operation, many employers were not in full operation nor businesses, from my knowledge he was under emotional distress as well as us both are currently. Another fact to also be considered is Jerome Doughty was seeking employment and on the date following his arrest the date of February 8, 2022, he was beginning his first day of the orientation of employment with Sandersons Farms in Collins, MS.
For over 15 to 20 years, we have been experiencing discrimination against and harassment while applying for employment, when receiving employment; we have been followed around within the community when seeking employment and while trying to get employed as well as while performing daily activities within and outside of the community and within the privacy of my home. Which obviously interfered with either of us receiving any income. The people within the community have been preventing us from employment to stop us from making income, to keep us from providing for one another financially, because they don’t want us to be a couple.
During my previous marriage with my ex-husband (Michael Pittman who I divorced) for several years, we were discriminated against and harassed by Marion County, and Jefferson Davis County police along with people within the community and we have experienced the same malicious acts within Forrest County of Mississippi without a cause. We have endured these malicious acts of police for over 15 to 20. Those entities have constantly interfered in and exploited our personal life, we have constantly endured the invasion of privacy within our home and society, we’ve experienced damage to property, loss of property home, and land, we’ve endured assaults physical and verbal harassment, and there were false arrests of myself and my ex-husband to intentionally separate us from being together and 3 of my children have been placed in foster care where they were mistreated. The separation from my family was as retaliation for reporting crimes committed against us, these malicious acts/crimes were and are conducted to purposely invade our privacy, and destroy our livelihood, we have endured discrimination and prejudice within the court system, and we have endured mental anguish, by the acts of police, we have endured the sharing of false information/accusations concerning events regarding our personal affairs concerning either of us wanting to be involved in an intimate relationship with other people which were not true. There have been many incidents where false arrests took place and there were presences of other people as well as events of imitation of people we knew in the past, imitating those we did not know personally and of people, we do not know. Although, all events which took place were done to provoke us. There were other events when my ex-husband and I were wrongfully arrested by police and the vehicle was towed mainly to provoke us and humiliate us; although Michael Pittman had numerous arrests the majority of the time during the past years which he was wrongfully arrested and I paid his bail, we were treated unfairly and discriminated against by the people within the community, we have been harassed during employment including sexual harassment, the arrests were made intentionally to take our money to cause financial hardship and humiliation. During the years I have also been aware of the fact of many people getting paid to commit these malicious acts against my family. There has also been an ongoing illegal tap of our phone lines illegally. My ex-husband and I were discriminated against from employment and all events have constantly been addressed, reported, and documented. During the past years, I’ve constantly contacted assistance with organizations against harassment and discrimination, law enforcement, I bought to the attention of police, and other government leaders, I have previously written a letter to Washington concerning the matter, and I’ve contacted many attorneys which avoided assisting me with the issues. At one period of time, I contacted a law firm concerning police harassment and I was told a death had to take place before they could do something and that is not a solution I would accept or allow under any circumstances. Most recently I contacted the mayor (Toby Barker) of Forrest County to make him more aware of these acts as well as an order to Cease and Desist all acts made against my family. I also made him aware of my family and I are Choctaw Indians of this country. We have not stolen anything from anybody, nor do we associate ourselves with many, and I will not tolerate this discrimination, harassment, etc. I am more than aware of the events which have been repeatedly conducted against my family, concerning my previous marriage, in my current marriage and all events are related to the Conspiracy of Police and reflect on the previous Christopher Epps prison cases of harassment by police of families who had family members incarcerated and my ex-husband Michael Pittman was incarcerated during the period of time in Leakesville, Mississippi in which I am pursuing a lawsuit for this case of the Conspiracy of Police with your assistance and the Department of Justice, etc., (which I have contacted previously) concerning this matter and previous acts committed against my family and I for the numerous years (15 to 20 years) up to this present time. I am also aware of many entities' involvement with the Conspiracy among those we have endured harassment including all racial acts.
I, Wyvette Lewis, Jerome Doughty's wife am petitioning for other options for him serving the prison sentence of 7 years, 3.5 years of incarceration, and 3.5 paroles. I am requesting his sentence of 3.5 years to be served under house arrest and the remainder of the 3.5 years to be served on parole.
