The PA State Police Report it indicates that “On 10-27-08 at 1111 hours, I interviewed the passenger of Unit 2 (Mrs. Rhoades). She states the last thing she remembered was Operator 2 (Mr. Rhoades) shouting something like “hold on” or “watch out”. She stated the next thing she remembered was seeing the headlights coming at her in the northbound lane. She stated the headlights looked to be higher than unit 2 (Cadillac driven by Mr. Rhoades). She stated she then felt the impact of the crash.”

Mrs. Rhoades trial testimony as follows “I remember it was dark and I just remember asking him how far it is. I was not familiar with that immediate area, so I just asked him how far it was and he said Oh, we are just about there. He said five minutes or so and that was the last thing he said. And the crash was right there. I remember him – – I remember talking. He had said that and all of a sudden he screamed. He left a scream out. And I had looked and I saw a light coming from – – it came this way. And I saw the, I guess it would be the – – the head light on the driver’s side first as it came right – – and all I could think of was it is high. And I didn’t know it was the truck at the time, but it was high. And I saw it come over this was. And then there was a crash.”

ADA Colleen Mancuso then questioned her “So you saw the light of the vehicle at that time coming towards you, you believe at an angle?”

Mrs. Rhoades responded “Yes, it was.”

As per Mr. Senavitis’ detailed recollection of the accident he indicates that he was driving southbound on SR 209 in Gilbert on the bridge at the Beechwood Inn when a vehicle traveling northbound suddenly shot over into the southbound lane (his lane of travel). He immediately hit the brakes real hard and impact occurred simultaneously.

Mr. Senavitis also recollects that he was actually looking down at the passenger of the vehicle and seeing a light, the light he thought could have only come from a headlight. But if he is looking down at the passenger (Mrs. Rhoades) and seeing the light it had to have been coming from inside the vehicle.

Taken fact Mrs. Rhoades questions Mr. Rhoades on how much further it was, the GPS in their vehicle is located middle lower portion of the dashboard as indicated in this photo, it is appropriate to assess that Mr. Rhoades at that time took a peek at the GPS to see just how long it would be and as he looked back up at the roadway was the time the minivan (driven by Yamila Yafar) off to his right by the shoulder of the road began to enter back on the northbound lane of travel in front of him.

This makes complete probability when all statements including witness statements and the reconstruction of the accident to have occurred in this way.



• February 18, 2011

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?


February 18, 2011


On October 17, 2008, PA State Senator James Rhoades was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Route 209 in Broadheadsville, PA whereas he passed away and his wife Edith Mary Rhoades was his passenger also severely injured.
Mr. Senavitis was driving the oncoming vehicle in this accident and was also severely injured in this motor vehicle. Mr. Senavitis was charge in this accident for cause and death of Senator Rhoades while intoxicated at 4X’s the legal limit as well as numerous other charges.

Yamila Yafar, the third vehicle involved was pulled on the shoulder of the road in which Senator Rhoades went around this vehicle then struck Mr. Senavitis in the oncoming lane sliding backwards hitting Ms. Yafar’s minivan.

Mr. Senavitis was imprisoned for this accident until put on trial in March of 2010 in which he was cleared of causing the accident and the death of State Senator James Rhoades but guilty of DUI and reckless endangerment which was appealed thereafter. He had spent 10 months in prison.

After the trial acquittal of Mr. Senavitis and the Rhoades and their defense claiming Yamila Yafar had no wrong doing or involvement in causing this accident the Rhoades family is now slinging law suits claiming differently.
Rhoades Family Law suits:

Mr. Senavitis for negligence in the manner in which he operated THE vehicle.

Ms. Yamila Yafar for negligence in causing this accident.

Then a third suit against Mrs. Senavitis for negligence in entrusting the vehicle to her husband.
Mr. Senavitis was driving a pick-up truck titled in Mrs. Senavitis’ name.

These are the law suits we are knowledgeable by the Rhoades family which were filed after the trial.

The week after the accident Mr. Senavitis had already obtained a lawyer for the accident knowing fully he was the victim of this accident and that Nationwide Insurance the carrier for Senator Rhoades was pushing for an immediate settlement on the vehicle and Mr. Senavitis’ injuries without the need for him to have an attorney.

One week prior to the trial Mr. Senavitis’ attorney pulled himself for representing Mr. Senavitis in this matter.
As for Yamila Yafar we have no information on her suits against any party other than he had already by compensated for her vehicle by Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company.

Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company reimbursed Yafar and Senator Rhoades for their vehicles after the accident as they were obligated by the Police Report and their Accident Reconstruction.

Mr. Senavitis has yet to be reimbursed for anything even after being acquitted.



I would like to state that Mr. Senavitis the accused of killing Senator James Rhoades went to trial for this in March 2010 and was acquited of the vehicular homicide as he did not cause the accident but infact the Senator himself was at fault for the accident which caused his own death.

Mr. Senavitis was guilty before proven innoccent and then proven innoccent by a jury only to remain guilty as you will see reading this House Bill No.2614 Session of 2010, as of June 18, 2010.

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

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


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.  



There have been many of us under the impression that Yamila Yafar was coming forward to tell the truth and that is why she was sent away from the preliminary hearing by DA David Christine and PA Trooper Jason Beers at Magistrate Debby York’s. But, why would she, she was guilty of so many traffic violations as well as being the obstruction that set up the motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of Senator James Rhoades, causing injury to Edith Rhoades and severely injuring Mr. Senavitis which could have claimed his life also.

If you want to discuss payoffs, here is one for you. Yamila Yafar in cooperating with the prosecution and the Rhoades/Hobbs family to keep the burden of guilt on Mr. Senavitis who is the only innocent party in this entire cituation and away from Yamila Yafar’s part and Senator Rhoades for going around her and into the on coming lane into Mr. Senavitis she has received $2,392.38 for damages from Progressive Direct Insurance Company which is her insurance company and is awaiting her $10,000.00 payment by Safe Auto which is Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis’ insurance company and that is still not enough because Yamila Yafar and her insurance company still want Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis to pay out of their pockets another $1,592.38 as their insurance company, to them, did not pay enough for settlement that Yamila Yafar isn’t even entitled to.

How does she justify her suit for the $10,000 as well as the money for damages to her vehicle? Insurance Fraud at it best. She was not injured nor was her infant, the only way she would qualify for that $10,000 is if injuries were suffered by her or her infant and she had no fault in the accident nor comitted any traffic violations.

Nationwide is the Rhoades’ insurance company they should be paying for the damage to her vehicle and nothing more.

Neither Yamila Yafar or the Rhoades have any right to sue or pursue with this unlawful twist they have made on the entire accident for their protection and gain. Disgrace and Criminal does not even cover all the words for what they have conspired.

The entire accident has been a grand cover-up, conspired and full of corruption on the part of all who were dispatched to the accident on the evening of October 17, 2008, those that became stuck in the Beechwood Inn as they stood outside witnessing not necessarily the impact but the vehicle positioning at rest. Yamila Yafar is a disgrace and criminal but so are all you withholding information of truth for proper justice.

Remember GOD knows and you will have to stand before him some day, pray for your soul.


First I would like to go over the safety rating for the 2006 Cadillac dts.  It specifically states, in each test, injuries to the head, neck and chest indicate low risk injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity.  Both driver and passenger side airbag deployed and Senator James Rhoades and Edith Rhoades (passenger) were stated to have there safety belts on as the Police Report states, this is questionable.

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) uses frontal offset and side impact crash tests to estimate the crashworthiness of a vehicle. These results are good indicators of how a frontal and side impact can structurally impact a 2006 CADILLAC DTS .

Senator Rhoades was a diabetic and it is known that he had an high glucose level at the time of his death.  He died October 18,2008 from interal bleeding due to blunt force trauma to the chest due to a motor vehichle accident.  


–          When no alcohol is in the blood, your liver keeps blood glucose from going too low by releasing glucose into your blood.

–          If the liver is busy breaking down alcohol, it cannot release glucose into your blood.

–          If you take insulin or diabetes pills, your blood glucose may go too low when you drink alcohol because the medicine and alcohol both lower blood glucose.

–          The alcohol and sugars in many drinks can cause blood glucose to go too high.

–          Alcohol can also cause high blood triglycerides (fats).

–          Check your blood glucose after you drink to see how alcohol affects you.

The Senator was flown by medical helicopter to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Salisbury Township, Lehigh Coroner Scott Grim said.  He was pronounced dead at 9:35 this morning, he said.  An Autopsy has been scheduled for Sunday morning Grim said.  

It was said Senator Rhoades was in serious condition and never criticial condition .   

Was his blood too thin, did he even get emergency surgery?  How long did they have to wait if he got surgery to fix this internal bleeding problems? 

You would think that a hospital Senator James Rhoades was so involved with would have done anything to save him whether they had to give him a heart transplant they would have found away.



I would like to bring to  your attention several things the first is that in this video the truck (Unit 1) has already been moved off of the front of the Cadillac (Unit 2) onto the double yellow lines which place it completely in its own lane southbound. 

Secondly the only evidence brought before Magistrate Debby York by the Prosecution were three things

1. The Police Crash Report done by Fern Ridge State Police, signed and sworn to by Trooper Jason Beers.

2. The Corner’s Report proving Senator James Rhoades was deceased and died from blunt force trauma to the chest causing internal bleeding due to a motor vehicle accident.

3. Their blood alcohol evidence on Mr. Senavitis from blood at the hospital.

How this was enough relevant evidence after the three months the Prosecution had for Magistrate Debby York to have the charges against Mr. Senavitis to go forward is ridiculous.

Ms. Yamila Yafar showed up to this preliminary hearing and as you see in this video as soon as she started walking to the courthouse doors DA David Christine and Trooper Jason Beers snagged her moving her away and talking to her.  She then abruptly left the Courthouse never going in testify.

DA David Christine during the hearing after the three pieces of evidence stated above were revealed turned to ADA Colleen Mancuso for more evidence and she had stated that was all they had.



Imagine yourself on your way home from picking your pay check up at work and the stopping to get it cash, all is well driving Southbound on SR 209 to return home with plans of going away that night for a four day weekend but as you enter onto the bridge just before the Beechwood Inn out of the blue your see the front grill of a car coming your way and slamming into you.  

The 1994 Chevrolet Silverado drive by Thomas Senavitis was not equipt with air bags and as he stated he was unsure if he had he seat belt. 

He was found lying across the floor of the truck, removed from the vehicle and put into the back of a West End Ambulance to have his injuries worked on,  from their a life flight came in a picked him up to take him to St. Lukes Hospital in Bethlehem.

Surgically Placed Affixiator To Hold Bone Pieces Together

DA David Christine stated “with the alleged alcohol reading he should have been in a coma let alone be able to get in a motor vehicle” .  

The time of accident was about 6:30 PM on 10-17-08 and Mr. Senavitis brought to St. Luke hospital with multiple severe injuries through none of which life threatening if not operated on immediately,  he was operated on within 12 hours of the inital accident.   If Mr. Senavitis had any alcohol level protocal would have delayed the surgery until which time was safe from intoxication as the alcohol would create complications during surgery and anesthisia. 

Imagine yourself coming from anesthisia to in a hospital, being all drugged up and seeing a cage literally going through and around your leg.  Having difficulty speaking, eating and drinking due to severe injuries to the mouth go through the roof of your mouth up into the sinus passages.  

Once released home the care was constant having to continually change bandages and keep the wound clean and covered with medication which took more than one family member to do, to hold bandages from moving out of place, holding the leg up and wrapping it around all those rods, at the same time.

First Surgery Incision

First Surgery IncisionFive rods inserted into Mr. Senavitis' leg as plates were put in to hold all the bits and pieces of bone to gether as the tibia and fibia both broke and shattered into pieces.Ulcer From Injury

 Ulcers Mr. Senavitis developed on ankle and leg due to the severity of the internal damage to leg, ankle and foot.


Mr. Senavitis was severely bruised throughout his entire body, had his left elbow wripped open, several broken ribs on the left side which each rib broke in three pieces and a break in his back.

Right Arm Bruise

The second surgery on Mr. Senavitis’ leg entailed an incision on the inner side of his of his right leg the same size as on the outer side of his left when they removed the affixiator, put in another plate with screws holding bone pieces together and soft casting right away.

He went from the soft case to a hard cast and when the hard cast was removed he worn a moon boot to get used to putting his leg down for walking.  

He went from wheelchair to a walker to a moonboot, and just putting his leg through therapy and weening off the moonboot had his bail revoked in a outragous act by Carbon and Monroe County working together. 

He has not recovered from the leg and back injury and is imprison without proper medical treatment.   He is being victimized over and over in every way by the system and those controlling it.  

Also a note I would like to bring to everyone’s attention when imprisoned they were given no medical problems Mr. Senavitis was suffering but the prosection made it clear to the medical department of the prison that Mr. Senavitis needed to be medicated for withdraw in which Mr. Senavitis refused and never took.  He was seen twice a day for syptoms and a check on his withdraw and show absolutely none, never went through withdraw like the prosection was trying to get documented to make him out to be such a damage to himself and society and a alcoholic that could live without it.  

How much does one person have to endore especially when they are innocent.  He has been proven guilty without a chance to prove his innocense .   Every right has been taken from this man and the abuse continues daily for him.

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

These photo were taken 10-18-08 as the investigation of the accident was taking place.  The top photo is the Sorthbound lane of travel which is the lane of travel Mr. Senavitis was in and going.  As stated in the Police Report the accident took place in the Nouthbound lane of Senator James Rhoades.  Clearly shown to them during their investation everything is in the Southbound lane including the marks of the resting point of the vehicles.  You must note that the marks of fluid on the double yellow lines is where the pick-up truck driven by Mr. Senavitis was pulled to at the scene for extraction/rescue of Mrs. Edith Rhoades as the truck was resting on the passenger front side and door at final hault of movement.

Bottom photo is the Northbound lane of travel which was the lane of travel Mr. Rhoades was supposed to be in as he was traveling Northbound.  Quit noticeable to anyone there are no marks showing anything happened in the Nouthbound lane as the State Police Report, it was all in Mr. Senavitis’ Southbound lane of travel.

Both photos also give you a good picture of the bridge and shoulder area which which Yamila Yafar was pulled over in to use her cell phone.

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.”


Thomas Senavitis is in jail after his bail was revoked

On May 23, 2009 Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis were at the Carbon County Courthouse for charges on Mrs. Senavitis consisting of assaulting family members, police officer and others.  This issue we will get into later as you won’t believe exactly how far they have gone to make Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis the Bonnie and Clyde of this century.

Right now we will focus on the Bail Revocation of Mr. Senavitis, what occurred at the Carbon County Courthouse, the hearing in front of President Judge Vican in Monroe County Courthouse, and what was and was not part of his bail stipulations.   What you know is what the Judiciary System tells the media which is their side of what they want you to think and an ironey of this whole thing is this is the second ambush on Mr. Senavitis and both time the media where there.  As a matter of fact they were in the door of the Carbon County Courthouse when the Senavitis’ entered getting right up into them and none of them had claim to smell an alcoholic beverage on Mr. Senavitis.

With 14 fails charges against Mr. Senavitis to protect the fact Mr. Rhoades entered his lane and slammed into him, Mr. Senavitis was out on $25,000 bail.

They can’t justify the first 14 counts but they keep added more now how do they justify adding 4 more counts.  It is obvious, those that are to protect the laws feel they are the laws.

May 23, 2009 Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis standing in the hallway on the second floor of the Carbon County Courthouse along with well over 100 other people.  I would say the distance across the hallway is no more than 6 or 7 feet with people lined up on both sides.

The Senavitis’ were stand near the DA’s Office door talking with each other.  There were two Sheriff Deputies one at each end of the long hallway, one being Carbon County Sheriff Robert Blisard.   At no time was Sheriff Robert Blisard or the other Sheriff anywhere near Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis.

Just to the left of the DA’s Office are stairways leading up and down.  Several taking notice to three officials topping the stairs coming up, Sheriff Robert Blisard, another Sheriff and Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos, Fittos carrying two items one in each hand.

They approached Mr. Senavitis one on each side and said “Mr. Senavitis come with us.”

Mrs. Senavitis confused about what was going on beings they were there for her asked what was going on as they walked Mr. Senavitis arm and arm into the DA’s Office telling her she can’t enter, Mrs. Senavitis spoke out to those around them to please watch and witness what is going on here, we are here for me not him.  They then pushed the door shut into her and obviously didn’t like the fact she spoke out to the others.

After a while Mr. Senavitis came out of the DA’s Office and told Mrs. Senavitis, did you know I’m drunk again, I failed their breathalyzer.

Mrs. Senavitis suffers severe anxiety and panic attacks and was asking her husband to get her medicine, as he was walking away the two Sheriff’s then focus on Mrs. Senavitis grabbing her and pulling her further down the hallway.  As these two Sheriffs stood directly in her face she kept asking them to step back so she could breath she was having an attack and trying to get air.  The Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos joined them in surrounding her and standing in her face.

Then grabbing her, swinging her around to cuffing her then shoving her down the hall and stairs.  Mrs. Senavitis disable with serious injuries to her back, neck, broken clavicle as well as a slight limp from these injuries having difficulty with going down steps, as she was not moving fast enough for them and them pulling and pushing her down the steps yelling at her to was Mrs. Senavitis kept explaining she was stop shoving me they still continued to.  Mrs. Senavitis was arrested for the second time and thrown in Carbon County Prison.

When Mr. Senavitis was in the DA’s Office with the Sheriffs and Probation Officer Juliette Fittos he noted that there were two breathalyzers one that was in a box and the other was not and seeming dirty.

Probation Officer Juliette Fittos was the one who performed the test on Mr. Senavitis but had to ask the Sheriffs which one they wanted her to use, they used the one which was not box.  Mr. Senavitis found that Officer Fittos was having difficulty in using it like she did not know how, yet you must be Certified to use and perform these test as well as the breathalyzer being recalculated constantly.   To Officer Fittos amazement the numbers did not start rising until it was away from Mr. Senavitis for a bit.   Then they show him their numbers and inform him he is drunk and can’t drive or will be arrested.

Six people that had been standing directly around Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis in the hallway of the Courthouse as well as having a smoke outside talking directly to Mr. Senavitis, none of them who had ever heard of him or met him before gave their names and information to be witnesses to the actions that had occurred to them on May 23, 2009 in Carbon County.

Mr. Senavitis later notified by mail DA David Christine and ADA Colleen Mancuso filed for Bail Revocation for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and of course the Rhoades family vengeance.

June 1, 2009 Mr. Senavitis shows for his Bail Revocation hearing at the Monroe County Courthouse to be seen in front of President Judge Ronald Vican.

ADA Colleen Mancuso made sure at the being of the trial to announce and make everyone aware that Mrs. Mary Edith Rhoades was present accompanied by family member for her support to see justice be done.

Carbon County Sheriff Robert Blisard testified on the stand under oath Mr. Senavitis was not swaying, slurring or showing signs of intoxication.  Yet from all the way down the long hallway he detected an intoxicating odor on his breath.  He was asked on the stand if the intoxicating odor on Mr. Senavitis’ breath was beer, Blisard stated “an intoxicating beverage”, he was asked was it wine Blisard stated “an intoxicating beverage” he was then ask was it whiskey again Blisard stated “ an intoxicating beverage”.

Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos on the stand under oath stated she administered the breathalyzer test to Mr. Senavitis and he blew a .102 and .08 is legally intoxicated.  She had stated their only concern with the whole thing was their concern that Mr. Senavitis did not drive.    In the DA’S Office he did tell them he drove to the Courthouse.

Also in testifying for the prosecution both Sheriff Robert Blisard and Carbon County Probation Officer Juliette Fittos swore under oath they did not know Mr. Senavitis yet when they approached him they said “Mr. Senavitis come with us” but they had no idea who he was.

Also note that Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis both entered the Carbon County Courthouse with nothing on them other than keys, all their belonging had been lock in their trunk.  Neither of had any ID on them and they never asked Mr. Senavitis for ID at any time before or after they took him in.  They absolutely knew who he was and what they were doing.

Two witnesses that had been subpoenaed for the defense were there along with two that had not been subpoenaed appeared at the Monroe County Courthouse for the Bail Revocation hearing.

The two defense witnesses had taken the stand got sworn in and both testified that they were standing very close to Mr. Senavitis awaiting conferences that morning.  Both men said they could not detect the odor of alcohol on his breath, nor did they see him stagger or act intoxicated in any way.

ADA Colleen Mancuso stood before the President Judge Vican giving her closing argument urging the bail be revoked as she stated Mr. Senavitis is a danger to himself as well as society.

The entire time during this hearing it was noticeable to most in attendance that President Judge Ronald Vican was doing an awful lot of rolling his eyes and closing them.  Was he actually paying attention to anything or was this already pre set up to conclude in the revocation of bail making all testimony just a waste of time waiting to give his revocation sentence.

Before President Judge Ronald Vican even started to give his judgement and while ADA Colleen Mancuso was still speaking a sheriff sitting in on the hearing called in for back up to take Mr. Senavitis away.  They stood behind him one on each side before Judge Vican condemned him back to prison with cuffs out and ready to go.



Did Mr. Senavitis break his bail restrictions, what were they, were they added restrictions, how about we get to that.

These were the conditions to Mr. Senavitis’ release, there was no further conditions by the courts as they continue to say he broke the conditions of his bail.

Claiming he was    NOT TO DRIVE


These were not condition of his bail, but was requested to make them part to re-instate his bail.All the proof of this had been sent to the Judges, news media and newspapers.  To this date they have refused to make corrections in their reporting setting him back out on his bail and the Judge and Prosecution has taken all of  Mr. Senavitis’ rights away to satisfy their cover-up, corruption and conspiracy in this matter.

An appeal was made on Judge Vican’s decision and asked to add these extra conditions to his bail as it wasn’t part of the initial bail and that Mr. Senavitis is still in need of serious medical attention and President Judge Vican denied it again.  Mrs. Colleen Mancuso stated once again his threat and there was no was for her to keep checking on Mr. Senavitis to see if he keeps his word.

Mrs. Colleen Mancuso and President Judge Vican are not keeping the word.  The took oaths which includes fairness and equality to all.  A person is innocent until proven guilty as stated before he has always been guilty to this system no matter what, he has no chance for fairness as it was Senator Rhoades that died and not him. Senator Rhoades  caused the accident going around Yamile Yafar but he is to great of a person to be wrong in anyway so blame someone else.  Here though if Yamila Yafar is show at fault for anything it just proves Mr. Rhoades crossed into Mr. Senavitis.  So of course everything is Mr. Senavitis’ fault.  They have to put the blame somewhere to protect Senator Rhoades.

I believe if Senator James Rhoades was really the great man everyone thinks he is he is turning over in his grave right now seeing what his family and the “bigwig” are all doing.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF BAIL:  It is for suspects not proven guilty yet, pending further investigation and trial.  They may be free as long as they make their court appearance, do not committing further offenses or interfere with witnesses.

Mr. Senavitis’s guilt so far have been being an honest person telling them he drove and telling them yes he did have three beers the night before at home.  Again, none of which was any part of his bail conditions.

For those who still don’t think something stinks with the accident of October 17, 2008 with Senator J. Rhoades, Mary Edith Rhoades, Mr. Senavitis, Yamila Yafar and her infant and all the incident the Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis have gone through since that evening GOD HELP YOU  if you find yourself standing in shoes like they are now.
