Cowboy 444 Looking For Help.


Recommended Posts

On Sept. 26th 2011 I, Randy Waters, was cited by United States Forest Service(USFS)for having a dredge at Foster Bar on the Rogue River. The ticket date of court was November 10th 2011 but a call had to be made to the State court system. The court date was set for Feb 24th 2012. On Feb 23rd I received a call from the issuing officer stating that they, USFS, were dropping their charges and turning it over to Oregon State Police. On April 26th 2012 I received a call from OSP officer Smithers saying he understood that I had some mining papers I wanted to share with OSP. I went to the Hunter Creek OSP office in Gold Beach and told officer Smithers about my problems with the USFS and how they had backed down after they discovered that they were in the wrong. At the end of the meeting I showed officer Smithers a paper copied from the Oregon State Lands website showing that mining was only closed from Graves Creek to Watson Creek. Officer Smithers brought out a paper from Oregon State Lands showing that there is no dredging in a scenic waterway and then proceeded to issue me 2 citations for polluting and polluting in a prohibited area. The citations were back dated to Sept. 26th 2011.

I'll be appearing in court on May 21st 2012 at 9:00 am in Gold Beach to file a NOT GUILTY plea and ask for a jury trial. I'll post on the forums when I find out what court date I have.

I just got off the phone with Joseph Snook who is an investigative reporter for the U.S. Observer. This is a paper that deals illegal citations, and helps innocent people make their way through the court system. They need a 5000.00 retainer to take over my case and defend me in court. If you can spare a five or ten dollar bill I could sure use your help. I have a paypal account under cowboy444@paypal.com Joseph told me that he should have started the investigation yesterday but can't get started without the retainer.

Thanks for anything you can do.

The Forest Service has pictures of my dredge(not running) in the river and a container with gravel in it. No one ever tested anything to prove pollution.

I have posted the above message on the PLP website.

I guess I made a mistake about paypal. If you wish to send a little to help me out you can go to paypal and send to cowboy444@myway.com That is my main e-mail address. Sorry for the confusion.

If you don't want to hassle with paypal, my address is:

Randy Waters

28555 Hunter Creek Loop spc 36

Gold Beach, OR 97444
