Waukesha County Family Court Illegal Witch Hunt – The Unjust Persecution Of Julie C. Valadez In Wisconsin

The following is the tragic story of a loving mother, Julie Valadez who suffered domestic abuse and had been allegedly raped on multiple occasions by her abusive spouse Ricardo Valadez that eventually ended in a divorce. She has also gone through years of suffering after her 4 special needs children were illegally taken away by Waukesha County family court Judge Michael J. Aprahamian and then reaffirmed by Judge Ralph Ramirez, two known corrupt and inept judges that failed to follow state laws protecting domestic abused victims and their children including ignoring Wisconsin State of Appeals court decisions claiming alleged illegal acts committed in the Valadez divorce case by both judges. The children were placed in sole custody of the abusing spouse by Judge Aprahamian.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

December 9, 2022

Wuakesha, WI - Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) first broke the story on August 2021 and was later picked up by other media sources and to date, the Waukesha County family court continues to be the most corrupt judicial system that has failed countless families going through a divorce due to inept and corrupt judges who continuously practice their own interpretations of state laws and who have failed to follow Wisconsin state laws, which also includes ignoring appellate decisions from the Wisconsin State Court of Appeals rulings to reverse their decisions of alleged illegal acts committed in the Julie Valadez v. Ricardo Valadez divorce case (2018FA000296) in Waukesha County.

Julie has been given credit for being the first domestic abused victim in Wisconsin to publicly document her tragic plight on her Facebook account, which includes countless documents, court transcripts and filed appeals showing the illegal acts and decisions committed by both Judges Aprahamian and Ramirez including the alleged illegal acts by Guarian ad Litem (GAL) attorney Molly J. Jasmer in the Valadez divorce case.

Ricardo Valadez is also known as Rick, a former Pastor at Brookside Baptist Church in Waukesha.

To date, both Aprahamian and Ramirez haven't been removed from the bench or held accountable for their illegal acts while on the bench by the Wisconsin Department of Justice or the Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers office including the Republican controlled legislature and the Wisconsin Judicial Commission that supposedly handles complaints about judicial impropriety. In other words, rogue judges that allegedly commit illegal acts, ignore state laws and ignore WI State of Appeals Court rulings are not held accountable in Wisconsin.

In July 2022, a recall effort to unseat both Aprahamian and Ramirez in Waukesha County failed to get enough signatures to hold a recall election to remove them from the bench. No local mainstream media outlets other than HNNUSA reported the recall effort.

On December 6, 2022, Judge Ramirez denied Julie’s  request to appear by Zoom (virtual appearance) for a court hearing motion to relocate case to another venue and summary judgement filed by Julie. Ramirez had ordered for an in-person court appearance by all involved in the case. GAL attorney Jasmer filed motion to find Julie in default for not appearing, which Julie was actually waiting in the Zoom waiting room, but Judge Ramirez wouldn't allow her to appear by Zoom for the hearing. (A judge must make accommodations for everyone to appear whether by in-person or by Zoom, if the person filing a motion for the purpose of hearing can't appear,  then the hearing is rescheduled to allow the individual to appear. In this case, Ramirez definitely appears to discriminate with inappropriate judgement to hold a hearing without the individual that filed the motion(s).)

The Julie Valadez v. Ricardo Valadez divorce case strongly indicates that the Waukesha County family court is allegedly operating as a criminal enterprise without a state audit and accountability. The Wisconsin Judicial Commission also has had no history of being audited by the state to check, if the Judicial Commission actually investigates corrupt and inept judges in Wisconsin when complaints are filed by victims.

HNNUSA on Thursday received a press release from Kathy 'Alamea-Xian, the Executive Director of Protective Makua, a State of Hawaii non-profit organization that claims Julie currently has refugee status as a political refugee for domestic abuse and unjust persecution in Wisconsin. 'Alamea-Xian also claims that this case reveals continuing unlawful acts by a rogue court under presiding Judge Ralph Ramirez, Julie has faced unjust persecution and continued forced separation without just cause, in retaliation for marring the reputation of the Waukesha family court, over which the Judge Jennifer Dorow, now running for a seat for the state's Supreme Court, formerly presided as its Chief Judge. 

The following is the press release from the Protective Makua organization.

Wisconsin domestic abuse survivor, Julie C. Valadez won four appeals finding that the Waukesha family court unlawfully placed her four children in the sole custody of her undisputed domestic abuser, Ricardo Valadez.

BACK STORY: Waukesha family court's Judge Michael Aprahamian and GAL Molly Jasmer sought to unlawfully criminalize Julie for fraudulent contempt charges***, because they had no way to justify their illegal taking of Julie's four children.

*** The Wisconsin Court of Appeals found this to be unlawful and vacated these malicious attempts earlier this year. The Court of Appeals also found that the placement of Julie's children with their undisputedly determined domestic abuser, Ricardo Valadez, was also unlawful.

However, instead of following the directive of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, Judge Ramirez decided to redo the entire divorce matter, allowing Ramirez and GAL Molly Jasmer continue their unlawful placement of the children with their domestic abuser and further their intent to unjustly incarcerate or involuntarily commit Julie in egregious violation of her Constitutional rights.

The illegal takings of her children, abrogation of her custody rights, and continued forced separation of her and her children is already unconstitutional.

During Judge Ramirez's unconscionable retrial of Julie's divorce matter he improperly scheduled a three-day hearing which lacked notice or a discovery period and where Ramirez harassed, sanctioned, and actually stopped the proceeding for 15 minutes at a time for Julie objecting to Ramirez's denials of her constitutional rights and for her requests to have him clarify what motion was being heard that day, since the notice was unclear. Each sanction against Julie amounted to $100 per instance.

As a result of Ramirez's behavior in qualifying Julie's right to object and request to clarify as "interruptions" he set Julie up to be vulnerable to instant incarceration for contempt. This was after Ramirez effectively precluded Julie from her right to an attorney when he gave her only two weeks to seek representation then stated, "there is no attorney who would come here on June 1st and say 'I can be ready by those dates.'" stated in hearing on May 16, 2022. Due to the credible threat of arrest without a lawyer present to protect her, Julie left the proceeding in fear of such real possibility.


Julie's previously granted Domestic Abuse Injunction, to which her abuser stipulated, in Waukesha County was improperly assigned to Judge Ramirez by Hon. Jennifer Dorow when Julie filed for an extension to the Injunction. It was unjustly dismissed by Ramirez for failure to prosecute.

Over the pendency of this case, Julie has had to constantly relocate due to the continuing threat of domestic abuse and likelihood of lethality by Ricardo Valadez as well as the Waukesha court's unlawful acts leading to the disclosure of her Wisconsin Department of Justice Safe-at-Home address (protected by the Wisconsin Department of Justice).

After an unlawful disclosure prompted by the Waukesha family court, someone attempted to break into Julie's home. She immediately relocated again and had to relocate a total of four times due to acts initiated by Waukesha family court leading to the unlawful continuing disclosures of Julie's residential address protected by the Safe-at-Home program.

Julie filed for a petition for an Injunction in Dane County using her Safe-at-Home address, and after a 20-minute soliloquy wherein which Judge Remington seems to litigate the matter in his own head, Judge Remington dismissed Julie's injunction after disclosing on the record that Judge Ramirez is an old law school friend of his. 

If a party is physically unable to be in court, a judge may not schedule a hearing knowing she cannot attend, for good cause.

Because of the unlawful persecution of Julie by Waukesha County Court, Julie has obtained refugee status in a foreign country as a political refugee fleeing domestic abuse lethality and unjust persecution.

Therefore, Julie has a due process right to appear via zoom or phone because she cannot physically attend in person, which the judges in Waukesha have known for a while now, because of their past and ongoing attempts to unjustly persecute Julie frivolously based on fraudulent actions of GALs. Julie has not committed any crime.

What is happening to Julie Valadez is indeed a court sanctioned witch hunt in political retaliation for her appellate court wins, drawing light to the unlawful behavior of the Waukesha County Court, over which Hon. Jennifer Dorow presided as Chief Judge at the time.

But the court's unlawful behavior not only affects Julie and her four children, but also dozens of innocent mothers in Waukesha in the same proceedings with the same judges, pointing to entrenched institutionalized sexism.


MYTH:  Julie is overreacting and past domestic abuse "wasn't that bad."

FACT:  Ricardo Valadez pled the 5th for repeatedly raping and repeatedly threatening to kill Julie in the civil divorce case resulting from an initial criminal case against Ricardo Valadez for domestic abuse. He has also admitted for the record to committing perjury, hitting his disabled children.

MYTH: Julie has abandoned her children.

FACT: Julie fled Wisconsin because of Ricardo Valadez's threats to kill her and the court's malicious prosecution, unlawful criminalization, threats to imprisonment, unsubstantiated allegations of mental illness from the bench (disproven), and other unlawful procedures. Julie currently has refugee status as a political refugee for domestic abuse and unjust persecution.

MYTH: Julie's actions in absentia have harmed her children, especially her Facebook posts about the court's unlawful behavior.

FACT: These allegations are based on the junk science of parental alienation, which is inadmissible in courts as these allegations are without causation, not science-based, and fail evidentiary standards for courts to consider them true. There has been no proof that her facebook posts, defending herself and exposing the court personnel and asking for her children has been correlated to any harm on the children. Her children are traumatized from being forcibly separated from Julie and have since been coerced, enticed, and forced to comply with their undisputed domestic abuser. Hence they must do and say what he wants them to do or say.

MYTH: Julie is responsible for not sending EBV to school.

FACT: EBV's truancy was fabricated and concocted while he was attending school virtual during the global pandemic in an act of fraud to justify the GAL Molly Jasmer's illegal takings her son and subsequently her other three children.

MYTH: Julie has rejected seeing her children in supervised visitation opportunities.

FACT: First, supervised visitation is grossly unwarranted here. Julie is not the abuser, Ricardo Valadez is the abuser. Second, Julie has been trying daily to facilitate communication with her children through the children's individual and family therapy sessions she has set up and that they have ongoing. Ricardo Valadez has aggressively blocked Julie's efforts to see her children.

TEX. TAX. CODE ANN. § 11.43(h),(i).

Contestee’s Family, Friends, and Beholden Political Cronies Purposefully Violate the Election Laws to Vote in District II for Contestee

14. The evidence at trial will show a familial nexus between contestee and persons who intentionally cast illegal votes knowing they did not reside in District II for the sole purpose of voting for their family member and friend, contestee. Numerous voters illegally claimed one of nine addresses in District II to cast an illegal ballot in the District II City Councilmember election for contestee. Illegally claiming residency is criminal for the voters and any campaigners involved, if any, as cited above, and the Court should shed a bright light on this practice since doing so affects the validity of this race and should not be tolerated or condoned by turning a blind eye.

Page 6 of 16

15. On information and belief a total of fifty-one voters cast an illegal vote in District II, which illegal vote was counted thus changing the outcome of the election in favor of contestee. Contestee did not win the Race. Mr. Rangel did.

16. Contestee is registered to vote at the address which she claims, at 3001 Pecos Plaza, which is located in District II of the City of Laredo. According to the Webb County Appraisal District, this 2,000 ft 2 home is owned by Alejandro Campos and wife Celina. Three additional voters are registered at this address all of whom cast illegal ballots in the Race. The public records evidence that each of the below persons purport to reside with contestee. On information and belief they do not reside at this claimed address in District II and cast illegal votes which were counted:

Celina Janet Carbajal
Celina Azenneth Ramirez
Juan Guadalupe Villa

By way of example, on information and belief, Celina Azenneth Ramirez probably resides and is domiciled at 4417 Exodus, outside of District II and located square within District I.

Juan Guadalupe Villa is the former husband of Valeria B. Campos and neither will establish residency in District II. Each of these voters votes are illegally cast and counted.

17. On information and belief, an additional eighteen illegal votes were cast and counted, and made by persons claiming to reside at 3003 Pecos Plaza within District II, namely:

12. Edgar Raul Campos
13. Leslie Aguilar Campos
14.Lilian Campos

16. Becky Denise Jimenez
17. Dayra Anarely Ramos
18. Juan Rios

According to the Webb County Appraisal District, 3003 Pecos Plaza is a 1,650 ft 2 residential building owned by Jorge Arturo Campos. All of the above indviduals are related to contestee Daisy Campos Rodriguez, but none can establish a residence in District II, and all of their votes are illegal and should not be counted. At least six of these voters changed their addresses to District II after the March 1, 2022 primary election but before the November 8, 2022 general election.

18. In addition, on information and belief, an additional four illegal votes were cast and counted, and made by persons wrongfully claiming to reside at 3818 Bella Street, within District II, namely:

Pedro Altamirano
Arturo Castillo
Kimberly Ashley Castillo
Victoria Lynn Higle

Victoria Lyann Higle is the daughter of Celina Ramirez, listed in paragraph 15 above, and on information and belief, both reside and inhabit the home located at 4417 Exodus Drive in District I.

19. On information and belief, an additional six illegal votes were cast and counted, and made by persons wrongfully claiming to reside at 312 Cazares Street within District II:

Julyssa Arlyn Abrego
Griselda Elena Cisneros
Estrella Guadalupe Gaytan
Edgar Eduardo Guerrero
Maria De Los Angeles Martinez
Brenda Joana Rosales

Each of the above-named voters have declared homesteads outside District II, and all appeared to have changed their residency by preparing and filing change of address cards with the Webb County Elections Office after the March 1, 2022 primary election but before the November 8, 2022 general election.

20. Moreover, on information and belief the below two persons changed their addresses to 2108 Green Street to this address within District II and whose ballots were illegally cast and counted in District II:

Jose Alberto Carrizales
Staci Lynn Navarro

These individuals were previously registered at 3702 Gregorio Lerma Drive in District I, where they also have a claimed homestead, and whom voted in the March 2022 primary election at District I.

21. On information and belief an additional eight illegal votes were cast by the below voters claiming to reside at 3124 Potomac Loop in District II:

Vicente Rodriguez
Marco Antonio Villanueva
Samantha Villanueva
Samantha Rico
Fernando Javier Alcala

Page 9 of 16

Juan Manuel Avalos
Maria Antonieta Avalos
Selina Pecina

Vicente Rodriguez is a brother-in-law to contestee and former Councilmember Vidal Rodriguez. On information and belief, Mr. Rodriguez has never resided at 3124 Potomac Loop, Apartment __. On information and belief, a person named Ruth Conchos receives federal COVID rental assistance from the City of Laredo to pay rent at the location claimed by Mr. Rodriguez as his residence, which is likely contrary to Ms. Concho’s application for rental assistance. Likewise, Myra Yesenia Gonzalez claims residency at 3124 Potomac Loop and received COVID rental assistance so anyone claiming to reside at her same address does not.

22. On information and belief an additional four illegal votes were cast and counted by the below voters claiming to reside at 3304 S. Bartlett Avenue in District II:

Maria Andrea Gonzalez
Cynthia Vianney Rios
Raul Rios
Patricia Galarza Soto

Raul Rios is a Laredo Police Officer. Patricia Galarza Soto has claimed a homestead outside District II since 2003, but she recently changed her residency after the March 1, 2022 primary election but before the November 8, 2022 general election.

23. On information and belief an additional three illegal votes were cast and counted by the below voters claiming to reside at 2707 Palo Blanco Street in District II:

Irene Antu
Alyssa Janae Milera
Eduardo Vicharreli

Page 10 of 16

Alyssa Janae Milera changed her residency after the March 1, 2022 primary election but before the November 8, 2022 general election. Neither of these three voters reside and inhabit this District II address.

24. On information and belief an additional three illegal votes were cast and counted by the below voters claiming to reside at 2601 Lomas Del Sur in District II:

Jaqueline Arlene Estevis
Gabriel Angel Vicharelli
Bryan Vicharelli

Each of the above voters changed their residency after the March 1, 2022 primary election but before the November 8, 2022 general election.

25. These illegal votes should be voided, not counted, and subtracted from contestee’s vote totals. After the subtracting of illegal votes from contestee, contestant should be declared the winner of the November 8, 2002 general election for the City of Laredo, District II councilmember. 

Contestee should be ordered to pay all costs of court.

Alternatively, The Court Should Order a New Election

26. Pleading in the alternative, and only in the alternative, the Court should order a new election.

City Council Districts Disregard and Split County Election Precincts Causing Incorrect Ballots to be Cast and Denying Voters in the District a Ballot to Vote

27. The City of Laredo’s recent redistricting took effect on August 20, 2022. District II for the Laredo City Council now consists of five county election precincts and portions of two other county election precincts. Election precincts 124, 128, 130, 169, and 132 are wholly within District II, while a small section of precinct 123 provides a part of its western

Page 11 of 16

boundary with District VIII and a small section of precinct 176 is in the middle of its eastern boundary with District I. The approximately forty-one blocks of precinct 123 that are contained in District II are bounded on the north by Market Street and east by Meadow Street, while the south and west boundaries run along Roosevelt in the south and then northwest to Foster, Botage, Jameson, Burr, Gates, S. Loring, Marion, Stone, Chacon, and McPherson Avenue to Market Street. The area of election precinct 176 in District II begins in the north at Ejido Drive then southeast to Regina Drive, to Alina Drive, to Bianka Lane, to Vientos Road, to Exodus Drive, to Pita Magana Road. The City of Laredo Districts are not contiguous with the county election precincts.

District II Map

Page 13 of 16

28. Voters residing in county election precinct 123 either vote for District VIII or II, depending on their address. Similarly, a voter’s address in county election precinct 176 determines whether they vote for District I or II. But in the recent November 8, 2022 general election, the ballots from county election precincts 123 and 176 were not distinguished or segregated between City Council Districts I, II, and VIII, causing voters to cast their ballots in the wrong Districts or not at all. The election results provided by the Webb County Elections Office refer to precinct “123-01 123-02” and provide one total without differentiation between Districts. The total results for precinct 176 refer to “176-01 176-02” with one total only. Conversely, two totals were provided for precincts “124-01 124-01” and “124-01 124-02,” three totals were provided for precincts “128-01 128-01,” “128-01 128-02,” and “128-01 128-03,” and two totals for “169-01 169-01” and “169-01 169-02.”

1 Attached as exhibit “A” and adopted by reference are the Webb County General Election Official Results provided by the Webb County Elections Office. Tex. R. Civ. P. 58, 59.

Page 14 of 16

29. Results by early voting site do not segregate vote totals and refer to 123-01 and 176-01. Accurate results for the recent District II election are impossible because the ballots were designed and voted according to county election precincts and not City Council Districts. The 6-11 vote difference in the November 8, 2022 general election for Laredo City Council District II are not accurate because of the incorrectly designed ballots that were not accurately counted. A new election with proper ballots that are accurate counted is the only remedy to correct the county election precinct/City District conflict.

30. Contestant would also aver that there were irregularities in the casting and counting of ballots in this election to the extent that the true outcome of the election cannot be ascertained, thereby requiring the voiding of the election and the need for a new election between contestant and contestee.

31. Contestant expressly reserves his right to amend and supplement this original petition to assert additional grounds in support of his claims after being permitted to examine, inspect, and/or photocopy all election materials and ballots.

32. As a result of the allegations in this original petition, the outcome of the contested election as shown by the final canvass is not the true outcome of the election because legal votes were not counted and illegal votes were counted. TEX. ELEC. CODE ANN. § 221.003.

If the legal votes are added or the illegal votes are subtracted, contestee’s majority will cease to exist. Alternatively, if the number of illegal votes is greater than the number of votes necessary to change the outcome of the election and the Court cannot determine the true outcome of the election, the Court must declare the election void. TEX. ELEC. CODE ANN. §§ 221.009, 221.012. 

This Court must then order a new election between contestant and contestee. TEX. ELEC. CODE ANN. § 232.013. If a new election is ordered, the Court should

Page 15 of 16

disqualify voters shown to have illegally casted ballots based on falsified residencies in the November 8, 2022 general election for City of Laredo District II councilmember.

33. Contestant would respectfully request the Court to order a mechanical recount of ballots in the November 8, 2022 City of Laredo District II councilmember’s race in order to assist in determining the true outcome of that election or to determine any other fact pertinent to a fair and just disposition of this contest.

Conditions Precedent

34. A copy of this original petition has been timely delivered to the Texas Secretary of State as required by law. TEX. ELEC. CODE ANN. § 232.008(d).


35. Wherefore, Premises Considered, contestant prays that upon service of citation and answer, the Court orders that a status conference be conducted immediately and that thereafter, the court conduct a judicial machine recount, and then renders judgment that contestant Ricardo “Richie” Rangel Jr. be declared the winner of the November 8, 2022 General Election for City of Laredo District II Councilmember, or in the alternative, that a new election be held between contestant Ricardo “Richie” Rangel Jr. and contestee Daisy Campos Rodriguez and that costs of the runoff election and court be assessed against contestee.

10-year-old Noah Charged As An Adult With 1st-degree Reckless Homicide For The Death Of His Mom, Quiana M. Mann, 44, Over Refusing To Get Him A VR Headset From Amazon

Noah, 10, was charged with one felony count for the November 21 murder of his mother over her refusal to get him a VR headset from Amazon. After killing her, he went online and purchased the VR headset for himself.

By H. Nelson Goodson 
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

November 30, 2022

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The young son of Quiana M. Mann, 44, has been charged as an adult after he confessed to his relatives of intentionally shooting his mother in the face resulting in murder on November 21 at the 7400 block of N. 87 Street. 10-year-old Noah was charged with one felony count of 1st-degree reckless homicide and his bail was set at $50,000. He is currently being held at the Milwaukee County Secure Juvenile Center pending the outcome of the homicide case.

If convicted, Noah is facing up to 60 years in prison and would be detained at a juvenile secure facility until he gets older and then transferred to adult prison.

According to the criminal complaint, Noah after fatally shooting his mother in the face, he went to his 26-year-old sister who was sleeping un another room and told her Mann was shot in the basement of the home. Mann's daughter went to the basement and found her mother suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

Noah's sister told police that her young brother suffers from anger and rage issues including from multiple imaginary people that speak to him, which includes two sisters, a man and another man who he described "as mean."

Shortly after the shooting, Noah confessed to his aunt that he fatally shot his mother after grabbing her keys and getting a loaded hand gun from a locked gun box.

Police initially believed Mann was shot accidently by Noah and was allowed to stay with family members after the shooting, until family members notified police that Noah had confessed of intentionally shooting his mother.

Police say in the complaint that Noah admitted, he knew that shooting his mother was wrong.

The criminal wasn't clear, if one of the imaginary people that Noah hears in his own mind influence the deadly shooting.

The criminal complaint says that Noah became upset when his mother woke him up early on November 21 and she refused to order a Oculus Virtual Reality Headset (VR headset) for him from Amazon.

After Noah's arrest, he began to ask police investigators and family members, if his VR headset had been delivered to his home.

23-year-old Gregory Renfro III Speaks Out About Being Savagely Beaten By 6 Individuals At Big Sharks Fish & Chicken Who Included Racial Slurs In The Attack

Renfro III is now recovering from a brutal beating by 6 individuals at Big Sharks Fish & Chicken fast food restaurant at N. 34 Street and W. North Ave., the restaurant is operated by Maher T. Ayad.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

November 30, 2022

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Tuesday, Gregory Dale Renfo III, 23, confirmed to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) that he was not under the influence of any drugs, substance or alcohol when he committed indoor property damage at Big Sharks Fish & Chicken fast food restaurant located in the 3400 block of W. North Ave. on November 21, 2022. That night, Renfro III says that he was actually suffering from being tired from working various shifts as a manager and was hungry. He just wanted to get some food to eat.

Renfro III went to Big Sharks Fish & Chicken for some food with a female co-worker, and while ordering the food, the male cashier who was taking the order began to flirt with Renfro III's co-worker and was ignoring him as he attempted to order. Renfro III apparently complained about the poor service he was getting to the cashier and the male cashier told him "to get your Black ass out," that's when Renfro III says he just reacted and began to trash or to engage in property damage, which several videos posted on social media by Tre Bono and OT Taee showed the indoor incident at Big Sharks Fish & Chicken. The videos were later taken down, but HNNUSA was able to get copies. The longer video (23 minute) version by Tre Bono shows Renfro III throwing soda, a chair including other actions leading to property damage. It also shows at least 6 individuals who walked in including some employees from the restaurant attacking Renfro III with weapons (sticks). The individuals punched, kicked and struck Renfro III multiple times until he managed to run out of the restaurant as the individuals followed him while continuing to repeatedly striking him.

OT Taee's short social media video shows a close up of the multiple individuals striking and assaulting Renfro III as he exited the restaurant. They caught up with Renfro III at a nearby field and began to kick, punch, strike him with the long sticks and stump on Renfro III's head, neck and back multiple times to the point that he temporarily lost consciousness a couple of times, according to Renfro III.

It took more than 15 minutes for police to arrive at the scene. Police took Renfro III into custody. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and then was taken to the Milwaukee County jail for booking. The nurse at the Milwaukee County jail refused to admit Renfro III at the jail and he was returned to the hospital for a complete medical examination including a head injury scanning.

Renfro III was later booked at the Milwaukee County jail and spent four days and nights in jail. According to the criminal complaint, Renfro III was charged on November 23, with one felony count for criminal damage to property (over $2,500), court records indicate. Renfro III was released on a $2,500 signature bond.

According to court records, Renfro III has no prior criminal record or convictions.

Milwaukee police and the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office charged Renfro III with a felony for property damage, but failed to criminally charge the 6 individuals who attacked Renfro III with weapons committing felony assault and battery with intent to cause injury for savagely and brutally beating up Renfro III to the point of unconsciousness. The criminal complaint shows that Renfro III is prohibited from contacting at least 5 individuals who attacked him that were just identified by initials in the complaint against Renfro III.

Renfro III who is gradually recovering from the brutal beating by at least 6 individuals at Big Sharks Fish & Chicken released photos showing his healing wounds in his arm, neck and back.



HNNUSA has learned that Ayad Maher who operates the Big Sharks Fish & Chicken fast food restaurant at the 3400 block of W. North Avenue is planning to open a second Big Sharks Fish & Chicken fast food restaurant at 8333 W. Appleton Ave. located at the corner of W. Appleton and W. Hampton Avenues at the beginning of 2023.

The following Facebook posts in the Big Sharks Mke FB page responding to a backlash of posts about the incident stated, "...we did call police the guy was out of control he was there for more that 30 min he intended to hurt employees if he mentally ill shouldn’t be on the street destroying peoples property His girlfriend was with him and said that he was on mushrooms.and we did refund his money back before all that happened...What happed is wrong and unacceptable employees where in fear and danger and we all humans and we all make mistakes we have to come together fix problems instead for making it worse...he was making death treats we are sorry it went the way it did may justice be served to all communities and god bless everyone involved."

It seems that the individual (page administrator) posting comments on the Big Sharks Mke page agrees that everyone should get justice including Renfro III, which those who brutally attacked him with weapons (sticks) should also be be criminally charged as was Renfro III. Renfro III's criminal complaint also includes the initials (MTA) for Maher T. Ayad, who Renfro III is prohibited from contacting.

On November 24, Antonio Lopez Rodriguez, the attorney general for the State of Baja California confirmed that a warrant and an extradition request were issued for a U.S. female citizen in connection with the murder of Robinson at the Club de Play, a resort.

Robinson along with Jackson and five other suspects arrived at the resort on October 28.

A video posted on social media showed Jackson brutally beating Robinson who was naked in a room while another suspect video recorded the altercation.

Jackson was arrested by U.S. authorities and is being extradited to Mexico to face homicide charges in Robinson's homicide.

Mexican authorities indicated that the other suspects could also face extradition as the murder case develops.

The suspects that remain free in the U.S. pending the outcome of the case are Kalil Cooke (male) of Charlotte, Malik Dyer (male), Wenter Donovan (female) of Greensboro, Alysse Hyatt (female) of Winston Salem and Nazeer Wiggins (male) of Charlotte.

According to the mexican criminal complaint, Donovan called for medical assistance at the Villa Linda 32 resort around 2:13 p.m. on October 29. A local female doctor from the American Medical Center arrived an hour later and worked to keep Robinson alive for at least 2 hours and 45 minutes. Robinson was having a difficult time breathing and was experiencing seizures. At 4:20 p.m., an ambulance was called.

Police arrived at 5:25 p.m. and at 5:57 p.m., Dr. Karolina Beatrice Ornelas Gutierrez pronounced Robinson dead.

Apparently, according to Robinson's mother, the deceased 25-year-old victim died from a broken neck and a severed spinal cord injury, according to an autopsy report by Mexican authorities. 

All the suspects left Mexico and returned to the U.S.
