Within four hours after his acquittal for unwarranted charges, the officials of the Town of Quartzsite expressed anger against Douglas Gilford. Quartzsite police officer Jim Schultz delivered THIS INJUNCTION to Gilford’s front porch. The Injunction states that Gilford basically cannot go near the “lobby” of Town Hall. That eliminates most services for this citizen. CORRECTION: Further, he must not call the Town of Quartzsite. (Can he call 9-1-1 ? Would he want to?) Gilford said he will burn his library card in protest, after he gets a permit.

Michael Roth accused Joe Winslow (former Quartzsite Town Council member) of threatening him in the parking lot of Quartzsite Town Hall this morning. Witnesses confirmed Roth’s account to Officer R. Paterson.
Douglas Gilford was acquitted of all charges today at a trial in Quartzsite Municipal Court. First all the prosecutor’s witnesses were heard. Thereupon, Gilford’s attorney, Scott Campbell of Marc J. Victor PC of Chandler Arizona, motioned for acquittal because he felt the State had not made a sufficient case to continue the trial. Judge Sherwood Johnston III recessed for 20 minutes to consider, then returned and granted the motion, resulting in acquital on all charges. Less than three hours were consumed with the proceedings. God reigns.
