MARY PRANTIL SAYS, "BUZZARDS ALWAYS PICK AT THE MOST ROTTEN FRUIT!"










Hello to all who read this- this is Enchantress Jan Windglows and my husband James R. Morgan, owner and successful entrepreneur of my  beautiful web site, 
The person above posting against us on the Internet is a deluded woman from New York facing a lot of criminal charges, named Mary Prantil.  We challenge Mary Prantil to PROVE that the statements on this page are LIES because they are NOT. WE DARE YOU MARY TO GO DOWN TO THE NEW YORK DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AND PUBLICLY DENY THE CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST YOU. WE WILL CONTINUE TO STAND UP AGAINST YOU, MARY PRANTIL BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU ARE IS A LIE AND AN ABOMINATION TO DIVINITY.
We expect her to be thrown in jail this October hopefully sooner.  She is a liar and blabber mouth, as everyone can see, and a garbage mouth as well.  
Every time she emails or calls us, we simply send her threatening emails and phone calls to the attorney in New York currently prosecuting her.
Mary Prantil is our "pet psycho" so to speak- every successful business owner deals with these types of unsavory characters.  People like this freak Mary Prantil are actually twisted GROUPIES trying to ride off our famous coat tails because it is their only claim to fame since they cannot get a life of their own and keep messing up their own life by perpetually getting into trouble with the law, LOL.  IT IS A TWISTED AND VERY SICK PSYCHOTIC ATTRACTION FOR CRIMINALS AND UNSAVORY CHARACTERS WHO ARE UNHAPPY AND UNSUCCESSFUL AND CONTINUE TO GET IN TROUBLE AND DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL- they are hateful, evil, vindictive, and hate honest people because they are unhappy and have an extremely troublesome existence and no one can help them.
My husband James and I are here in Bonners Ferry Idaho, anyone can call us- our phone number is 208-714-4348, just like it says on our web sites.  No one is on the lam here, lol just Mary and her CRIME RIDDEN CLAN.
Mary would LOVE to have our home residential address so she can make more trouble for us, but that will never happen.  This is precisely why business owners have post office boxes- to avoid psychotic people like Mary of course, LOL.
You see, Mary is MAD because when we did her spell work, the spells WORKED, her boyfriend wanted to marry her, and then Mary messed up and drove her boyfriend off, and she has been blaming all her messed up agenda on us ever since.
She also has some kind of psychotic thing going where she makes up outlandish stories about other people about the same things that are happening in HER life, lol.  The woman needs to be put away, committed, locked up for the rest of her life.  She is 46 years old and still all she can do is try to make trouble for innocent people.
My husband James spent countless hours on the phone helping this woman.  She did receive her spell results.  She messed up her life.  Oh, well !  I have no control over what this crazy woman did to her own life and we will not back down from her and will continue to help put her behind bars.
So in closing, Mary is a very unhappy person, constantly blaming her own self adversities on innocent other people.  And my husband and I are not the only ones- Mary Prantil has SEVERAL people in New York that have pressed charges on her and are waiting for her to be prosecuted.
For future reference, my husband and I will continue to run our very reputable and innocent highly successful business and continnue to defend ourselves, no matter WHAT Mary Prantil says.
We know who we are, and we know who Mary Prantil is.
Give me a call if any questions.  By the way, I see Mary had to actually write a long story of lies about me since she did a background check and could not find anything on MY record, lol.
Mary Prantil certainly has PLENTY of garbage racked up against her huh?  Just think here is a woman 46 years old that will never be a responsible adult or lead a positive productive life.  But that is her problem now, and she has Divinity to answer for, for all her misdeeds and her many lies and crimes.
The comical thing about all of this is, nobody CARES what Mary Prantil writes or says.  She is a liar and nobody or any of my cleints EVER ask me who Mary Prantil even IS.
All the stories that Prantil fabricates about us are garbage, as we have stated many times.  My husband and I are very successful honest people and we are not ruffled by anything Mary Prantil says because all she is doing at this point is taking up bandwidth that someone else who has something important to say could be using up here, lol.
Concerning my home address- Mary is the reason I will never disclose my residential address.  I do not need her crazy as_ showing up in my neighborhood, LOL.  Anyone reading these threads would feel the same.
Take care and be blessed everyone, call me and come visit my website I have nothing to hide, lol.  Come and see the new beautiful altar my husband James and I have built to bring glory to Divinity. 
In Divinity's Service,

THE REAL CRIMINAL REPORTS ON MARY PRANTIL WITH REFERENCES TO PROVIDE PROOF:
This report is concerning Frank George Prantil and his daughter Mary Theresa Prantil.  In past reports authored by Miss Prantil, she has stated that " I'm proud to have been the daughter of Frank G. Prantil" and that she again "comes from a "PRESTIGIOUS"  family based in the San Diego there in the state of California.
I can't speak for the character of the rest of her family as I don't personally know them however, I have no reason to believe them to be anything other then reasonable and law abiding people however, I can relay what I've read from credible sources such as transcripts from the Supreme Court, Colleges of Frank Prantil, Attorney Generals office, State Attorneys office legal sites etc pertaining to Frank G. Prantil.
Miss Prantil has stated that "My father got off lots of criminals" then latter went on to say: "My father got off lots of criminals and innocent people to", LOL. Well, I'm sure he did successfully defend some innocent people along the way but from the looks of it, he also was instrumental in successfully defending the trash of society such as Murders, Child Molesters, Check Forgers, Bank Robbers etc. Upon researching the records and past legal performance of Mr. Prantil, I was also informed that not only was he successful in defending the scum of humanity on several occasions but went on to be completely corrupted by the same criminals that he had been representing throughout his practice.
It was in my research sited below,  did I run across several charges launched against Frank G. Prantil via the Supreme and Superior court system there in California, such infractions as Perjury, Drug Poisson, Drug Abuse, Unlawfully removing $700,000 from a Clients safe as she sat in jail awaiting a murder trial and so fourth. Mr. Prantil also had interfered with the homicide trial by becoming personally involved with his Client of that same murder trial by attempting to cover for the accused so he could recover his fees. Prantil lied blatantly on several occasions and attempted to hold up the due process of law by filling one frivolous motion of delay right after another just like Mary in the current charges being lodged against her by the State of New York.
Frank Prantil was known as a greedy individual who would stop at nothing to accomplish his goals be they of a positive or unethical nature, JUST LIKE Mary T. Prantil his daughter, He was considered out spoken, brazened, and ruthless just like his daughter Mary T. Prantil Internet Terrorist Extraordinaire. So in essence and according to other legal professionals, Frank Prantil was nothing but a GREEDY UNETHICAL Attorney that happened to like the spotlight just like Mary. Another thing I'd like to add here. Did you know that Frank G. Prantil was in and out of rehab centers for his uncontrolled use of illegal narcotics ?, Did you know that he was imprisoned for 14 months for not only botching a homicide trial, but for being an Accomplice to check FORGERY in the commission of that crime.
As you can read in the research below, Mr. Prantil wasn't considered a professional on any level by the courts or his peers. Mr. Prantil was DISBARRED twice for drug, unethical activity, and leaving his Clients holding the bag simply because they ran out of money in the middle of their defense. Does any of this sound familiar ?, Does it sound like anything Miss Mary T. Prantil has done in the past ?, I would say that Little Mary is the preverbal apple that didn't fall very far from the tree, wouldn't you say ?  Well, Frank Prantil won't be bothering, SCAMMING, or ripping off his Clients any more because he's now deceased. Good Riddance I say.
Now, we have little Mary carrying on his legacy with all of her criminal activities such as you can view below after her fathers information. Please view the facts below coming from the Experts and those that had the misfortune of dealing with him first hand. Sounds like a real Gypsy Scum Ball to me. Read the history of this Idiot and be SHOCKED and then read about the exploits of his daughter little miss marry low life prantil, people like this should just be locked away forever and kept from wasting the courts time and resources.

High Court Closes Book on Colorful Legal Career

SAN DIEGO At Largehttp://articles.latimes.com/1989-03-31/local/me-603_1_high-court

March 31, 1989|ANTHONY PERRY
The California Supreme Court has quietly ended one of San Diego County's more clamorous legal careers. The court this month upheld the disbarment of Frank George Prantil, a well-known attorney and aspiring politician before being convicted of perjury and forgery charges and spending 14 months in prison.
"At one time, he was considered one of the county's top defense attorneys," said attorney Eugene Iredale, who once represented Prantil. "Somehow his life just fell apart on him." Now living outside Sacramento, the 51-year-old Prantil said he was "devastated" by the court's rejection of his plea that he was unfairly convicted. And he repeated his oft-made accusation that he was victimized because of his maverick ways. "I'm a victim of the war on drugs," Prantil said. "The prosecutors and the courts can't stand it when someone insists that all defendants have rights." In nearly two decades as a practicing attorney, the San Diego native was never far from the headlines. He won several high-publicity felony cases and big-money damage suits. He defended a San Diego councilman indicted in the Yellow Cab scandal. Reporters loved his flamboyant rhetoric (he favored Shakespeare and the classics) and brash attire (he wore an American flag tie to court). His practice boomed. He moved from East County to a comfortable spread in La Jolla. But there were also political defeats, angry public disputes, money problems and his final slide into Vacaville state prison. He concedes now that alcohol and marijuana played a role in his difficulties. He lost races for Congress (1968), district attorney (1970) and El Cajon Municipal Court (1978). The County Bar Assn. branded him as unqualified. The State Bar in 1979 suspended him for six months for misusing a client's money. He was convicted in 1983 of forgery and perjury in a case involving a bogus $53,000 check and, in 1986, of being an accessory to a cocaine conspiracy. Released from prison in 1987, Prantil says he will never return to San Diego County: "They rode me out on a rail." He says that Deputy Dist. Atty. Bob Sullivan had a vendetta against him. Sullivan says that's bunk and notes that two juries convicted Prantil on a number of counts. From his self-imposed exile, Prantil tries not to dwell on how far he has fallen. "I used to believe in ultimate justice," he said. "I don't anymore." A Winning T-Shirt T-shirts protesting the judge's decision will go on sale today in 14 San Diego County outlets of Pacific Eyes and T's, the Sorrento Valley-based T-shirt and sunglasses chain. The new shirts show a Conner-like catamaran with a large screw through it, and a kiwi bird laughing at the sight. Price: $10. Pacific Eyes and T's has long backed Conner against pirate-banker Michael Fay. During the September races it sold shirts saying "No Way Fay", and "Throw Another Kiwi on the Barbie." A Well-Done Roast In Pete Wilson's latter years as mayor of San Diego, it was said he had two goals: to learn to sing and to become governor. He took lessons and can manfully handle a tune. The second goal eluded him, and he settled for the U. S. Senate. Now, he's trying to rectify that with his third try at the governorship, with his likely Democratic foe being Atty. Gen. John Van de Kamp. Thursday night the Republican Wilson was among those roasting Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) at a benefit dinner in Oakland. He joked that he wasn't surprised to find picketers carrying signs urging him to stay in the Senate. What did surprise him, he said, was that one of the signs was carried by Van de Kamp. ==========================================================================================
843 F.2d 314
Frank George PRANTIL, Petitioner-Appellant, v. STATE OF CALIFORNIA, Respondent-Appellee.
No. 86-6669.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Submitted Sept. 23, 1987*. Memorandum Jan. 4, 1988. Order and Opinion March 31, 1988.
Frank G. Prantil, Fair Oaks, Cal., pro se.
M. Howard Wayne, Deputy Atty. Gen., San Diego, Cal., for respondent-appellee.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.
Before CHOY, FARRIS and HALL, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM:
1
Frank George Prantil, a California state prisoner, appeals the district court's summary dismissal of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254.
I.
2
Prantil, formerly an attorney in California, was introduced to Daryl Bell by his client Melvin Goins. Prantil agreed to represent Bell on a criminal charge. A few weeks later a woman purporting to be Bell's mother asked Prantil to help her negotiate an escrow check from which Prantil would receive his fee. Prantil accompanied the woman to his bank where he informed the teller that the woman was his client's mother and that he wanted to deposit the check into his trust account. The woman signed the check, which was made payable to Joanna F. McKnight, and Prantil endorsed it to his trust account. Neither Prantil nor the woman indicated that the check might not be genuine.
3
Subsequently, the owner of an escrow agency discovered that three checks were missing from her office. One of the checks had been made out to Joanna F. McKnight and deposited in Prantil's account. The agent's signature had been forged on the check.
4
Prantil was charged with forgery in violation of Section 470 of the California Penal Code. At trial, Prantil argued he knew nothing of the forgery, and that he had deposited the check merely for collection purposes to see whether it was genuine.To establish that Prantil knew the escrow check was forged, the prosecution introduced evidence concerning four trust deeds which Prantil had prepared. Prantil had received information suggesting that the four deeds were forged and that Goins and Bell, were responsible for the forgeries.
5
Prantil was convicted of forgery and sentenced to two years in prison. The California Court of Appeals affirmed the conviction. People v. Prantil, 169 Cal.App.3d 592, 215 Cal.Rptr. 372 (1985). The California Supreme Court denied review and the United States Supreme Court denied certiorari. Prantil v. California, 475 U.S. 1067, 106 S.Ct. 1381, 89 L.Ed.2d 606 (1986).1
6
Prantil filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus in federal district court. The district court summarily denied the petition. This court granted Prantil's application for a certificate of probable cause.2
II.
7
Prantil contends that numerous trial court errors and a district court delay in deciding his habeas petition denied him due process.
8
This court reviews de novo a district court's denial of a habeas corpus petition under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254. Turner v. Compoy, 827 F.2d 526, 528 (9th Cir.1987). This court presumes the state court's findings of fact to be correct. 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254(d).
III.
9
Prantil contends he was denied due process because the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to establish that he passed the forged escrow check "as true and genuine."3
10
This court determines whether, after viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the government, any rational trier of fact could have found the essential elements beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U.S. 307, 319, 99 S.Ct. 2781, 2789, 61 L.Ed.2d 560 (1979).
11
The evidence established that Prantil received information prior to the transaction which suggested that Goins and Bell were involved in a forgery scheme. He also knew that one of the possible victims of the scheme was Joanna McKnight, who was described to him as an elderly woman between the ages of 78 and 80. Yet, despite this knowledge, when Prantil deposited the escrow check into his trust account he did not inform the teller that the check might be a forgery or that the woman with him, who appeared to be approximately 40 to 45 years of age, might not be the person whose name appeared on the check. He merely endorsed the check and asked that it be deposited into his account.
12
Prantil's knowledge of the previous forgeries and the contradictory descriptions of McKnight could have led the jury to reasonably conclude that by failing to alert the bank, Prantil was attempting to pass the check "as true and genuine." See People v. Williams, 186 Cal.App.2d 420, 424, 8 Cal.Rptr. 871, 873 (1960) (tender of check purporting to be signed by specific person established "true and genuine" requirement). Thus, the district court did not err in the determining there was sufficient evidence for a rational trier of fact to find that the "true and genuine" requirement was established beyond a reasonable doubt.
IV.
13
Prantil contends that the trial court deprived him of due process by giving two erroneous jury instructions.
14
This court evaluates jury instructions "in the context of the overall charge to the jury as a component of the entire trial process." Bashor v. Risley, 730 F.2d 1228, 1239 (9th Cir.1984), cert. denied 469 U.S. 838, 105 S.Ct. 137, 83 L.Ed.2d 77 (1984). To warrant habeas relief, the instruction cannot be merely "undesirable, erroneous, or even 'universally condemned,' " but must violate some due process right guaranteed by the fourteenth amendment. Cupp v. Naughten, 414 U.S. 141, 146, 94 S.Ct. 396, 400, 38 L.Ed.2d 368 (1973). Moreover, the petitioner in a habeas proceeding has the burden of demonstrating that an erroneous instruction "so infected the entire trial that the resulting conviction violates due process." Darnell v. Swinney, 823 F.2d 299, 301 (9th Cir.1987), petition for cert. filed, (Oct. 1, 1987).
15
Prantil challenges the trial court's instruction regarding the elements of forgery. He contends that by omitting the "true and genuine" requirement, the trial court denied him his due process right to have the jury consider each element of the charged offense. See Connecticut v. Johnson, 460 U.S. 73, 87-88, 103 S.Ct. 969, 978, 74 L.Ed.2d 823 (1983) (instruction on presumption of intent reversible error because permitted jury to convict defendant without examining evidence concerning essential element of crime).
16
The trial court gave the following instructions on the elements of forgery:
17 Now, in order to prove the commission of such crime [forgery], each of the following elements must be proved, each of them. Here we go.
18 Number one, that a person passed or offered to pass a forged instrument. That is the first one.
19 Two that such person knew that the instrument was forged; and three, that such person passed or offered to pass such instrument with the specific intent to defraud another person or persons.
20
Although the instruction omitted the "true and genuine" requirement, we consider the instruction in conjunction with the other instructions. See Bashor, 730 F.2d at 1239. Prior to giving the challenged instruction the court told the jury:
21 Now, every person with the specific intent to defraud--now, remember that I told you 'specific intent.' That's it. That's specific intent--with the specific intent to defraud another, utters, publishes, passes or attempts to pass or make use--there's a lot of things here--or make use of, as true and genuine, any false, altered, forged or counterfeited instrument or document, knowing the same to be false, altered, forged or counterfeited, is guilty of the crime of forgery. (emphasis added)
22
Because the overall charge to the jury informed them of the true and genuine requirement, Prantil was not denied his due process right to have the jury consider every element of the crime.
23
Prantil also contends he was denied due process because the trial court gave an inapplicable and erroneous jury instruction on aiding and abetting. Prantil argues that the accomplice instruction removed an issue of intent from the jury's consideration and thus constituted reversible error under the reasoning of Johnson and Sandstrom v. Montana, 442 U.S. 510, 99 S.Ct. 2450, 61 L.Ed.2d 39 (1979).
24
However, the prosecutor specifically denied that Prantil could be guilty as an aider and abettor instead of as a principal. An erroneous jury instruction does not merit habeas relief if the deficiencies pertain to matters that are not in dispute and the error did not so affect the entire trial as to deprive the defendant of due process.See Darnell, 823 F.2d at 302-03. The trial court gave proper instructions regarding the intent necessary to convict Prantil as a principal to the forgery. Because the prosecution did not present an accomplice theory, any deficiencies went to a matter that was not in dispute. The error did not mislead the jury on a disputed issue and thus did not so infect the trial as to deprive Prantil of due process. Id.
V.
25
Prantil contends that the trial court denied him due process by refusing to grant judicial use immunity to a potentially exonerating witness.
26
On his motion for a new trial, Prantil claimed that Goins could testify that Goins and Bell had set up Prantil, that Prantil was unaware that the check was stolen, and that Bell had lied to Prantil when he said there were criminal charges pending against him. Goins had been unavailable to testify at the trial because he was in prison on an unrelated charge. At the new trial hearing Goins invoked the privilege against self-incrimination and refused to testify at the trial unless he received judicial use immunity because he was in prison on an unrelated charge. The court denied Prantil's motion to grant immunity to Goins.
27
Under California law, a court may only grant immunity on the prosecutor's request. Cal. Penal Code Sec. 1324. See In re Weber, 11 Cal.3d 703, 720, 523 P.2d 229, 240, 114 Cal.Rptr. 429, 440 (1974). However, the prosecution's failure to request immunity violated Prantil's due process rights if it deprived him of his right to a fair trial. See United States v. Garner, 663 F.2d 834, 839 (9th Cir.1981), cert. denied, 456 U.S. 905, 102 S.Ct. 1750, 72 L.Ed.2d 161 (1982).
28
Here, Prantil's unsupported assertion is the only indication that Goins would have presented exculpatory testimony had he been granted immunity. The record contains overwhelming evidence that Prantil was not an unwitting accomplice in the crime, much of which would not be controverted by Goins' testimony even if that testimony is as Prantil contends it would be. For example, Prantil knew that the woman who deposited the check in his account did not match the description of the woman whose name appeared on the check. On these facts, we hold that Prantil was not deprived of a fair trial. If Prantil was denied a fair trial in this case, trial courts would be required to grant immunity simply on the basis of unsupported allegations by criminal defendants that immunity is required by due process.
29
Moreover, Prantil has made no showing that any misconduct on the part of the prosecutor caused Goins to invoke his privilege against self-incrimination. See United States v. Lord, 711 F.2d 887, 890-92 (9th Cir.1983).
VI.
30
Prantil contends he was denied due process because of a twenty-month delay between the date of the alleged crime and the date of the indictment.
31
A pre-indictment delay, unlike a delay in bringing a charged defendant to trial, is "tested by general proscriptions of due process."4 Arnold v. McCarthy, 566 F.2d 1377, 1381 (9th Cir.1978). A pre-indictment delay does not justify habeas relief unless the defendant can show actual prejudice. Id. at 1382. To prove actual prejudice a defendant must give more than "mere assertions that ... witnesses' memories may have faded with the passage of time...." United States v. Horowitz, 756 F.2d 1400, 1405 (9th Cir.1985), cert. denied, 474 U.S. 822, 106 S.Ct. 74, 88 L.Ed.2d 60 (1985).
32
Prantil contends that he suffered actual prejudice because the bank teller could no longer remember the details of the escrow check transaction. However, the state court of appeals found that the delay did not affect the teller's memory. In addition, the court noted that Prantil was benefited by the teller's unresponsiveness to certain questions; therefore there was no prejudice.
33
Prantil also claims that a seven-month delay between the time he filed his habeas petition and the time the district court dismissed the action violated his right to due process.5
34
In Carter v. Thomas, 527 F.2d 1332 (5th Cir.1976), the Fifth Circuit held that a district court's procedure for handling habeas petitions which routinely resulted in delays of up to twenty months violated due process. However, in Satterlee v. Kritzman, 626 F.2d 682, 683 (9th Cir.1980), we held that a district court's clerical error which resulted in an eight-month delay between the dismissal of a prisoner's habeas petition and the time his files were forwarded to the court of appeals did not deprive the petitioner of any substantive rights. As in Satterlee, here there is no policy of discrimination and no showing that the delay was purposeful.
VII.
35
We conclude that the district court properly dismissed Prantil's petition for a writ of habeas corpus.
36
AFFIRMED.
* The panel finds this case appropriate for submission without oral argument pursuant to Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4 and Fed.R.App.P. 34(a)
1 Because Prantil's direct appeal presented the same constitutional claims as his subsequent habeas petition, it is unnecessary for him to have filed for state habeas relief. Turner v. Compoy, 827 F.2d 526, 528 (9th Cir.1987)
2 Prantil was released from prison on April 20, 1987. However, because a felony conviction may cause a defendant to suffer adverse collateral consequences even after he has served his sentence, a defendant's release from custody prior to the completion of his federal habeas corpus proceedings will not render his petition moot. Carafas v. LaVallee, 391 U.S. 234, 237-38, 88 S.Ct. 1556, 1559, 20 L.Ed.2d 554 (1968). Prantil was in custody when he filed the petition in district court, so this court retains jurisdiction over the proceedings after he is released. Id
3 Under California law, a person is guilty of forgery if he passes or attempts to pass as true and genuine a forged instrument with knowledge of the forgery and with the specific intent to defraud. Cal. Penal Code Sec. 470; People v. Hellman, 189 Cal.App.2d 777, 778-79, 11 Cal.Rptr. 433 (1961). The only element Prantil challenges as lacking sufficient evidence is the true and genuine requirement
4 Once a suspect is indicted, the more stringent requirements of the speedy trial right apply. Arnold v. McCarthy, 566 F.2d 1377, 1382 (9th Cir.1978)
5 Prantil first raised the issue in his brief to this court. Ordinarily, this court will not decide an issue which was not raised at the District Court. Bolker v. C.I.R., 760 F.2d 1039, 1042 (9th Cir.1985). The court may decide an issue for the first time on appeal, however, where review is necessary to prevent a miscarriage of justice or to preserve the integrity of the judicial process. Id. Because a claim that a district court violated a party's due process rights questions the integrity of the federal judicial system, we review Prantil's claim despite his failure to raise it below
