David Donley, Vermont
Speaks Out About
Injustices in Vermont
The following is in response to a
JAIL News Journal published last week, entitled "America's Future Without
J.A.I.L. by Lawrence Agee." From that article, Mr. Agee, a former
practicing physician in Vermont, describes how he was robbed by the legal system
of his medical license and everything he had for speaking out against the
system's treatment in his divorce case. Mr. Donley adds to the credibility of
this all-too-familiar scenario, having checked the record himself and verifying
this travesty of "justice." For those of you who have not seen Mr. Agee's
lamentable story, we include it in text form below, followed by Mr. Donley's
America's Future Without J.A.I.L. by Lawrence
Night after night I lie awake, sleepless. I
am sleepless because of what lawyers and thieves have done to me. I
have been robbed and abused by the very courts where I expected to turn for
All that I
have seen is injustice. They have stolen my money, my home, my life,
my career. They have stripped me of all I have worked for, and left
me with nothing.
I wonder if I
will ever sleep again. I wonder if I will ever risk owning another home for
fear of seizure. I wonder if I would ever risk marriage again for fear
of another financial rape. I wonder if it is safe to place my money into a
bank for fear it will be removed. I wonder if I will ever
work again. I wonder if it is worth getting another career where I am
obligated to obtain a professional
license for fear my license will be
This is not liberty, this is tyranny, a fraud,
a big lie, an illusion. When judges cease to honor
the Constitution and comply with it, they cease to serve a
Lawrence Agee (Oregon JAILer)
Response from Dave
Having reviewed many of Lawrence Agee's files I would like to note
that he had been a successful practicing physician for over thirteen years with
no complaints ever lodged against him by any of his patients when Vermont's
Medical Practice board revoked his license to practice medicine.
It was not until he wrote letters of protest over the way our legal
handled his divorce (after only six months of marriage to which he had
entered into with a pre-nuptial agreement drafted by a Vermont Licensed
Attorney)noting that the judge totally ignored the pre-nuptial agreement and
awarded his bride of six months well over half of his lifetime's worth of work
and holdings (houses, cars, bank accounts,....). One should note his
ex-wife is a practicing psychologist who had been gainfully employed before,
during, and after the divorce. She employed a co-worker to initiate
charges against Lawrence.
Lawrence's case is a good example of why the boards policing the legal
and medical professions (it isn't just the legal profession that enjoys the
privilege of self policing -protecting- the medical profession is just
as self serving) should be more open to public scrutiny. There have been many
reports of abhorrent conduct on the part of Vermont's legal and medical
professionials with little or no action taken by the boards to safeguard the
Our legislature has tinkered with creating accountability as a result of
public outcry and many legislators have publicly proclaimed the boards' policing
professionals need to "have more oversight, be more accountable, less secretive"
but little more than lip service is paid to the issue.
That there have been many publisized accounts of the unsavory behavior
of Vermont's professionals can be verified by a key word search of the
newspapers archives as found on the state's internet home page
library link. This will give you the date and title of the reports and a brief
is all that is neccesary in many cases.
One doctor had complaints pending for years for many things including
having raped a sixteen year old girl in his office. (In Vermont, 16 and under
is statutory rape). It was publisized in the Burlington Free Press on June 27,
1995 along with accounts of his having lured another mentally-ill woman from her
physciatrist with promises of providing prescription drugs, which he did,
then proceeded to sexually exploit her for some period of time.
What might interest a lot of family court litigants out there is that Dr.
Delozier successfully retained his license and legally defeated his victims'
attempts to get temporary restraining orders against him, despite their fears
and documented abuses. This was all publicly reported in the papers. ... [M]any
... non-custodial parents were being criminalized with temporary
restraining orders for
frivilous claims like, "I think he will," or, "I fear
he will,...," .... Yet, licensed doctors rape and seduce their
patients with prescription drugs and the courts deny their victims' restraining
orders while the Medical Practice Board covers up the doctor's
But we are a country of laws not of men, right.
There is no disparity in the application of the law and no, Virginia, justice is
not for sale like any other
commodity or service in the market.
Dr. Delozier was able to keep his license just because he could afford
the most expensive lawyers in the state and his victims didn't need restraining
orders against him-- he is a state licensed doctor! Government knows best
can best protect yours and my interests if left to operate in secrecy.
Our founding fathers didn't know what they were doing when they drafted the
The State Disciplinary Boards for lawyers, judges and doctors (all
other professionals are monitored by the Secretary of State's office of
Profesional Licensing) say they require secrecy to "protect the innnocent" and
the public welfare. If you believe that consider the Agee and Delozier
Two licensed physicians operating in the same jurisdiction (state of
one has never had any complaints made against him by any patients;
the other is a public menace and spectacle with published complaints of his
behavior with a sixteen year old girl. One exercises his right
of free speech and speaks out about the abuses of the legal system and its
licensed puppets, and is retaliated against with license revocation. The other
plays the game, pays into the extortion racket to cover his criminal behavior
and retains his license.
Makes me wonder, what is the difference between the Mafia that shakes down
legitimate businesses for protection money and the courts that shake down
everyone for all they can, just to ensure basic constitutional rights?
Lawrence's case demonstrates how the boards' policing professionals can
act as what one Vermont State Senator and lawyer, Illuzii, termed "Star chamber"
in a pleading during his interactions with the professional conduct boards.
Lawrence was prosecuted not for what he did but for what the board's one lone
witness said he thought he might do (act incompetently) as a result of the
stress he was under-- stress that was created by his unjust persecution;
as one expert who analyzed him, Karen Huffer, author of the book "Legal
Abuse Syndrome" concluded, "the legal abuse he has endured for speaking out
against the 'system'."
