The announcement by Ernie Land that Kent Hovind’s man Brady Byrum was secretly involved in promoting C. Clarke & Danielle Holm’s sovereign citizen legal notions in their custody dispute with the State of Alabama is archived on this website in the article at the following link:
At the time Brady Byrum’s identity was a closely guarded secret by the Holms and their promoters, including their publicity venue of choice, Medical Kidnap and its reporter Terri LaPoint.
Ernie Land’s announcement blew the lid off of Brady’s involvement in the case and whole sovereign citizen foundation upon which the Holms were operating in defiance, unsuccessfully, to the State. It is assumed that many people are wishing Ernie Land had kept his big mouth shut.
Recently, the Holm’s #1 cheerleader, Susan Cobb, published her own unofficial transcriptions of certain court proceedings in the Baby Holm custody case, one of which is excerpted below and includes details of the incident which resulted in Brady Byrum being thrown out of the courtroom.
BRADY BRYUM and BABY HOLM!
Susan Cobb’s work is hard to figure out, but one can find some bits of information therein worth noting, and this is such a case.
Remember, however, that her transcriptions are not official. Take them for what they are worth. Her website (i.e., LetOurBabiesGo) is also hard to figure out. I ran across the following and so present it here for consideration.
Judge: In the matter of John Doe, otherwise known as baby boy Holm. Parties are present with counsel, also present are the foster parents, and Mr. Kirby, you have another gentleman seated at your table who was not here at the last hearing.
Mr. Kirby: Yes, ma’am. —–We need to address the court I guess on that before we get started on motions as to possible witnesses being present in courtroom and Mr. Brady Byrum.
Christian: I was going to say I would like to ask if he could assist on counsel?
Mr. Kirby: Mr. Byrum will be here solely for the purposes of taking notes and he is a friend of the parents, and Mr. Byrum, you understand that everything that is said in this courtroom is confidential. You can’t disclose what goes on in this courtroom outside of court.
Mr. Kirby: We’d ask that he’s be allowed to stay and assist the parents with notes if possible. We believe that it allowed under 12 15 129. It says the general public should be excluded from delinquency, in need of supervision dependency hearings, and only the parties, counsel, witnesses and other persons requested by a party shall be admitted. Other persons as
the juvenile court finds have a proper interest in the case or work with the juvenile court may be admitted by the juvenile court on the conditions that the persons refrain from divulging any information which would identify a child under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court or family involved. We are asking for Mr. Byrum to be admitted in this proceeding. He
understands that he can assist them by taking notes. He is not to disrupt this court in any way.
(male voice): Or argue any motions.
Judge: Is Mr. Byrum a licensed attorney?
Mr. Kirby: Are you a licensed attorney, Mr. Byrum?
Judge: Department’s response?
(Male voice): Your honor, we would object to him being present. He is not an attorney. A brief internet search of him actually appears that he is here and has been providing legal counsel to the Holms which would be the unlawful practice of law, and that we believe that is the sole reason why he is present. Mom and Dad are both here. They are able to take notes, as the department is doing. Its counsel has to take notes as well. In order to be prepared, they have standby counsel. They have plenty of assistance to insure that their case is able to be recorded and will put forth the evidence. And again, he is here solely for the purpose of attempting to provide unlawful legal advice to the Holms.
Guardian: Judge, I would also object and echo the objection of the department.
Christian: Yes, ma’am. I would like to state on the record that it is our 6th amendment right to have counsel of our choice.
Judge: Ms. Holm? Anything further, Mr. Kirby?
Mr. Kirby: Nothing, your honor.
Judge: It has long been the standard and practice of this court that if everyone does not agree that someone who is not a party under the rules or not an attorney, is not allowed to come in. Mr. Byrum may indeed be called as a character witness maybe if he has known these people a long time. I don’t know. I just don’t think it is proper to allow him to remain in the courtroom to assist in taking notes. Your clients are capable of doing that.
Mr. Kirby: We respect the court’s decision, your honor.
Christian: I would like to have it on record that our 6th amendment rights are being violated.
