PA STATE TROOPER FALSIFIES EVIDENCE JUST BEFORE TRIAL

On October 17, 2008 in Gilbert, PA just around 6:30 was a tragic motor vehicle accident involving a high profile Senator, this Senator was James J. Rhoades who passed away due to his injuries the next morning.
Mr. Senavitis was eventually arrested for vehicular homicide while DUI over 4 times the legal limit as well as over a dozen other charges.

ADA Colleen Mancuso prosecuted this case in trial on March 10, 2010 whereas in the questioning of the Commonwealth’s witness, Corporal Douglas Shook, he was questioned on the whereabouts and inspection of the pick-up truck driven by Mr. Senavitis.

In the court documents Corporal Shook testifies that a search warrant was obtained and an inspection of the vehicle was done by him on Halloween of 2008.

The inspection entails documenting and photographing damage points of the vehicle and an actual state inspection.

The search warrant also enables them to go inside the vehicles to inspect and gather evidence.
Direct from the trial:

Ms. Mancuso “Did you find anything unusual on the inside of the vehicle?”

Corporal Shook “The only thing that was surprising to me is there was actually still an odor of an alcoholic beverage inside the passenger compartment.

Ms. Mancuso “Was there anything else?”

Corporal Shook “There were beers cans in there. That is not necessarily uncommon with the crashes I get called out for. The odor of the alcoholic beverages still being in there was surprising. Usually it dissipates by then.”

PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE Supplemental Investigation Report:

Now, on February 17, 2010 (23 days before trial), this Trooper (Jason Beers) executed a search warrant on the truck that was operated by SENAVITIS. Four(4) empty twelve(12) ounce cans of BUSCH beer were recovered from the passenger compartment of the truck and placed into evidence under property number N3-4982(M).
It’s clearly documented and testified to that the pickup truck driven by Mr. Senavitis was inspected with a fine tooth comb on Halloween of 2008 with an obtained search warrant and the state police document everything about that vehicle and photographed it vehicle inside and out.

I believe it is protocol to photograph evidence in its found location before moving it for proper documentation.

Then they get another search warrant 23 days before trial on February 17, 2010 and this is when they come up with these cans of beer to bring up into evidence.

Upon receipt of this new discovery by defense and brought to Mr. Senavitis’ attention he informed defense counsel there were no beer cans in the cab of his truck and he needed to review that evidence for born on dates that the cans document.

Needless to say prosecution made sure these cans of beer in the cab of the truck were brought up in the trial, but the physical evidence of these cans were never viewed.

Why weren’t they found and photographed in their complete inspection of the pickup truck Halloween of 2008?
If they were there then I am sure there would have been several other initial charges on Mr. Senavitis in their scramble for charging this man for as much as they could to make him seem guilty.

Mr. Senavitis’ family reviewed the pickup and photographs the entire vehicle the day after the accident October 18, 2008 and there are no beer cans in any of their photos.

And, even though the Rhoades family and the court has been portraying them to be dumb rednecks I am sure if there were cans at the time the family inspected the vehicle and got personal items out they would have been smart enough to take out any beer cans. They didn’t because there wasn’t any.

RHOADES FAMILY PUSH ON CHARGES

• February 18, 2011
RHOADES FAMILY PUSH ON CHARGES

Recently, the District Attorney has taken a new interest in the summary offenses originally charged in Mr. Senavitis’ case whereas he had been acquitted of vehicular homicide and several other charges in March of 2010 stemming from the motor vehicle accident in which PA State Senator James Rhoades lost his life.

These summary offenses are as a result of the Fern Ridge State Police investigation and their reconstruction of this accident.
President Judge Ronald Vican heard this case as AD Colleen Mancuso prosecuted it. Corporal Shook and PA State Trooper Beers were the witnesses for the Commonwealth as to the authenticity of the Reconstruction Report filed by them.

It was demonstrated and proven that the Fern Ridge State Police Reconstruction Report was completely incorrect and physically impossible, it defied the laws of physics.

KEVIN R THERIAULT of Crash and Safety out of Virginia reconstructed the accident using the same evidence the State Police had and evidence they felt was necessary to use and came up with the proper reconstruction and only physically possible one.

It was obvious at the time Judge Ronald Vican and AD Colleen Mancuso were completely stunned by the verdict as well as the Rhoades’ family.

Several months have passed, Mr. Senavitis was sentenced and now the District Attorney wants Mr. Senavitis charged with the summary offenses.

It is believed that the new interest in the summary offenses is as a result of the Rhoades family pushing the issue with the District Attorney’s Office.

The District Attorney recently requested a conference with the Judge which has already been held. The question arose whether or not the court still has the power to act on those summary offenses. That legal question is being researched at this moment. The Judge at this meeting gave every indication that he intends to find Mr. Senavitis guilty of most of them. “BIG SURPRISE.”

My question would be if Mr. Senavitis was acquitted of the cause of this accident and Yamila Yafar and Senator Rhoades himself direct cause “Where are the charges on them?”

The Rhoades family needs this as they are pulling strings for their law suits against Yamila Yafar, Mr. Senavitis and Mrs. Senavitis.

Mrs. Rhoades after the trial stated when asked how she felt about the verdict was “I respect their decision”.

Sorry Mrs. Rhoades this is not respecting their decision or the fact everyone is or should be treated equally, with respect no matter what come before their name if anything.

Throughout this case Mrs. Rhoades all you have heard is the late great Senator James Rhoades and that because of who he is and his background he could make no error.

Mr. Rhoades made an error that evening and instead of admitting he is not perfect as no one is you continue to punished an innocent family as much as you can.

I ask myself what is going on in the Secret Society of our Government and will the people ever be free of it?

PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE COVER-UP RHOADES-SENAVITIS-YAFAR

THE MUST SEE VIDEO BEFORE VEHICLES WERE MOVED

Pocono Record Photo Taken of Accident Scene on 10-17-08

Pocono Record Photo Taken of Accident Scene on 10-17-08


TOP TWO PHOTOS AFTER TRUCK WAS MOVED

This is the image that kept being put out for all to see stating how Mr. Senavitis crossed the double yellow line and truck the Cadillac Driven by Senator J. Rhoades. This photo was taken after the pick-up truck was removed from the front passenger side of the Cadillac were it rested against the passenger door and placed straddling the double yellow.

In this photo the pick-up driven by Mr. Senavitis is still resting against the passenger door of the Cadillac in the southbound lane which was Mr. Senavitis lane of travel. The entire front of the Cadillac is in the southbound lane of travel where the initial impact also occured. So there is no misunderstanding, the vehicle in main view on the right in this shot is the emergency vehicle, but as you take a closer look of the photo you will see the passenger side mirror. Look at the black bug guard across the front of the hood you will see it.
This photo is looking up the northbound lane of travel which the Cadillac was traveling as well as Yamila Yafar. The minivan driven by Yamila Yafar was the obstruction in the northbound lane in which caused the Cadillac to shot over to the southbound lane to avoid it. This minivan and Yamila Yafar are on the right of this photo, please make note this is not where her vehicle was at the time of accident.

As this is before the pick-up and Cadillac were moved let me direct you to the pick up. Take a look at the steam arising from the vehicles. You can see that it is actually coming from the truck which is in the front side of the Cadillac just in front of the emergency vehicle. The only clear part you can see is the cab roof of the pick-up.

Another very clear piece of evidence here that has completely disappeared is the hood of the Cadillac, I will explain and this is very important. Note the twist in the hood, the driver’s side is completely straight with no impact dent and lifted in the air several feet. When you follow the front of the hood this is also straight with no sufficient dents also looking pretty straight other than the angle it is twist to which is downward on the passenger side.

This will tell us that this was not a head on collision nor was the contact driver’s side to driver’s side but in fact the accident occurred as the Cadillac went into the oncoming lane at about a 10:00 angle which also is proof as this angle is what made the Cadillac turn counter clockwise and end up in the direction it did. As the pick-up was in it’s lane and traveling straight it held it position of travel staying straight.

Everyone in these photos or who seen these vehicle as this point before they were moved are called witnesses. Pa State Trooper Jason Beers indicated on stand he had gotten to the scene after the vehicles were moved and he did not have his car cam on nor did he get photos. He also indicated he knew of no photos that were taken before the vehicles were moved as they the truck had to be moved immediately for rescue of the passenger of the Cadillac as they rested together.

UNIT 2 – 2006 CADILLAC DRIVEN BY SENATOR JAMES RHOADES

If the impact happened as indicated int the Fern Ridge State Police Report the brunt of the damage would been the front with driver’s side getting the force of impact turning the vehicle clockwise instead of counter clockwise as they have documented and sworn to.

Unit 2 Driver's Side View

Unit 2 Driver's Side View

Unit 2 front took the brunt force of the impact more towards the passenger side turning the vehicle counter clockwise inducing more damage to the passenger side.  Also proving the resting point of Unit 1 being againt Unit 2’s front fender and passenger door, not resting in the center of the roadway.

As stated in the Fern ridge State Police Crash Report as Unit 2 rotated counter clockwise it then struck Unit 3 damaging Unit 3 and making a scuff mark on Unit 2’s rear driver’s side bumper.   You can see the scuff in white just under the driver’s side tail light and just next to that the bumper sticker saying RHOADES State Senator.

In this blog you will find the word by word account in the Fern Ridge State Police Crash Report, Unit 1 damages as well as further information concerning the going ons in this case.   If you read it all and pay close attention to what you are reading you will see how far they have gone to cover-up Senator James Rhoades and Yamila Yafar’s role in the creation/cause of the entire accident.  The one thing we have not been able to collect are photos of the damage to Yamila Yafar’s mini van which we are sorry for.  But please continued to follow up with fighting back1 as well as the others putting together the pieces to make you aware of the conspiracy and corruption with our county politicians, police, judicial system and the other that have been brought in to this.

RHOADES FAMILY STATEMENT OF GRATITUDE TO STATE POLICE AND MONROE COUNTY DISCTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE

The Rhoades family released a written statement in response to today’s arrest:

 

Mary Edith Rhoades releases a dove after the dedication of the Senator James J. Rhoades Downtown

“We would like to extend our gratitude to the Pennsylvania State Police and thank them for spending the time and effort to conduct a thorough investigation that has been professionally handled from start to finish. The actions by the Pennsylvania State Police detectives, troopers, and investigators have been nothing less than exemplary. 

“Also, we would like to thank the Monroe County District Attorneys Office who, in conjunction with the State Police, have been professional, courteous, and diligent in their efforts. 

“While the general public and media outlets continued to look for a quick story and fast results, it is extremely important to remember that with any investigation thoroughness outweighs haste. 

“We want to thank the entire community for the tremendous outpouring of support, well-wishes, and prayers. This love, compassion, and support provided to us has been of tremendous assistance during this difficult time. 

“While our grief is understandable, it is difficult to describe the level of disappointment, anger, and sadness this most recent information has caused. While accidents can and do happen, this tragedy was completely avoidable. Due to a grossly malicious and reckless act, we have not only lost a husband, father, and grandfather, but on a larger scale, the community has lost a good man, a dedicated public servant, a steadfast leader, and the number one fighter for school children in the Commonwealth. 

“Because of these charges and the ongoing criminal case, this will be the Rhoades family’s last public statement regarding the accident. We thank the media and general public for respecting our privacy.”
