Larken - Day Five

3 Old Comments:

Consider calling IRS 'EXPERT' as witness for defense. A hostile witness of course, but the answers will be quite informative.

Am I correct in that this trial verdict will decide if Larken's failure to file was WILLFUL (guilty) or NOT WILLFUL (not guility) and, like Vernice Kuglin, he will owe tax, interest and penalties regardless?

Correct. Even if Larken wins the criminal trial, it does not have any affect on the civil side of the matter. This is because the law is not on trial, but rather Larken's beliefs about the law. However, if Larken wins, it is just another case to add to the growing list of cases where juries are refusing to convict people on this issue. As such, it may start taking a lot of the wind out of the government's sails. In other words, if they have a 75-80% chance of losing if they prosecute (or more), they might just quit wasting their time. However, I believe we also need to support the We The People's (www.givemeliberty.org) lawsuit concerning the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, as that appears to be the only real way to change our elected official's and judges' INTERPRETATION of the law and make them actually ABIDE by the law.
