  • Shanesha Taylor: No original plea deal exists, so why were charges re-filed during negotiations? - How could she violate terms of a plea that was never signed, let alone be prosecuted for it? (May 15, 2015)
    I, B Cayenne Bird, am in California today and am unfortunately unable to attend the sentencing of Shanesha Taylor in Phoenix Arizona. I do have much to say before I know the outcome of today’s hearing about unprofessional media coverage and distortion of facts that embarrass me as a journalist/editorialist/activist for more than four decades. I may make updates to this column after I see what needs to be corrected in the news coverage. I did clarify some of the misinformation with an Op-Ed I wrote which appeared in many publications on Nov 17, 2014 here http://exm.nr/1vkUSJd That detail there did seem to help settle the frenzy down a bit and I do not expect Shanesha to get prison or have her children removed from her custody today due to the public outcry that followed the correction of facts. The County Attorney Bill Montgomery does mean her harm because she dared to challenge his unreasonable demand that she freeze the funds that the donors wanted her to have to mount a proper legal defense and care for her children now, not 18 years from now. What is really primary in my mind is that Montgomery re-filed charges in the middle of negotiations of the original plea deal OVER MONEY.
