Baumgartner In Custody Over 72 Hours With No Hearing

“I’m really dismayed. I don’t understand why Ms. Baumgartner has been held for 72 hours without a hearing. She has the same rights as everyone else.” Franklin County Attorney John Vogel said Monday afternoon. Vogel claims to have contacted Ottawa County officials first thing Monday morning after hearing that Dr. Elsebeth Baumgartner had been incarcerated after a vehicle pursuit on Friday night.

Baumgartner was allegedly “wanted” on nonviolent misdemeanor probation violations. Records show that the charges used to issue the bench warrant were dismissed in November of 2004. Records show that Adkins denied Baumgartner’s ability to file motions in her criminal case stating that Baumgartner has been declared a “vexatious litigator.”

Records show that Baumgartner has been incarcerated for a period of 235 days on charges that stemmed from a “falsification” conviction in 2002. “When does this end?” Baumgartner said from the Ottawa County Detention Facility.

According to the Port Clinton News Herald, Ottawa county Prosecutor Mark Mulligan is considering charges against this writer for “harboring a fugitive.” Baumgartner hired this writer to journalize her story on the Internet, but is now being threatened with criminal charges after associating with her.

Baumgartner was arrested on what she calls a “sham bench warrant” issued by Ohio Visiting Judge John Adkins of Circleville Ohio. Adkins has been quoted in the Port Clinton News Herald as calling Baumgartner “a purveyor of hate and cynicism.”

“I want to go home and spend time with my daughters and my husband. When is this judge going to leave me alone?” said Baumgartner.
