Update On Tim Turner

Upcoming Sovereign trial moved to Montgomery

The federal trial of a Dale County man who claims to be president of the republic of the United States of America will be moved to Montgomery for security reasons, according to court records.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled this week that the federal fraud trial of James Timothy Turner, 56, will take place at the Frank M. Johnson Federal Courthouse in Montgomery in March of 2013.
Jury selection will take place at the federal courthouse in Dothan.
Thompson’s ruling does not cite specific security reasons, but does refer to a sealed letter from the United States Marshal for the Middle District of Alabama pursuant to the court’s “jury plan.”
In September, federal authorities charged Turner with using fictitious bonds to pay his federal taxes, obstructing the Internal Revenue Service and other federal tax charges. The indictment against Turner claims he taught seminars on how to file retaliatory liens against property belonging to government officials and others.
He has been held without bond since his September arrest.
Turner is believed to be a leader in the sovereign citizen movement, a collection of several different groups with varying beliefs about government authority. Many adherents to the movement believe they exist outside the authority of the government as it exists today.
The trial against another alleged Sovereign, Monty Ervin, was held in a similar fashion. Jury selection was held in Dothan earlier this year under heavy security. Jurors were then transported to Montgomery for his trial. Monty and Patricia Ervin were convicted of federal tax fraud charges.
While the letter referenced in Thompson’s ruling remains under seal, it is believed Montgomery’s updated federal courthouse with its modern security enhancements creates a safer environment for court members.
Jury selection is scheduled for March 18, 2013 in Dothan. The trial will be held immediately thereafter.
Turner is represented by Everett Urech of Daleville by court appointment.

Judgment is feeling or indicating that another person is making the “wrong” choice or a “bad” decision. Discernment is rooted in love and honor; for self and for others. Discernment is noticing that you, are not making that same choice for yourself. Discernment allows you to notice the varying choices being made, without the need to label another’s choice as good or bad; right or wrong. Deciding that something is not in your highest good is discernment. Determining if something is not in another person’s highest good is judgment; and that is beyond the scope of anyone's authority or responsibility; relative to free will and personal Sovereignty.
