UNITED DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MAINE
U.S.A. v. Sawtelle 1:17-cr-00125-JDL-2
Motion to Vacate, Habeas Relief
“To declare liberty is freedom from physical restraint and the U.S. Congress criminalizing marijuana was arbitrary and unreasonable regulation of property, depriving Sawtelle of his liberty without compelling reasons, without due process of law contravening the 4th and 5th Amends. of the U. S. Constitution thus vacating his conviction and sentence.”
The evidence is clearly written in these court documents. Any claim by Sawtelle that
marijuana is a fundamental constitutional right is lie. The court violated its own rules. These law enforcement officials failed to respond to Sawtelle’s allegation of Ground One for habeas relief in
his 28 U.S.C. 2255 Motion to Vacate. Being incarcerated is a substantial showing of a denial
2 of 4
of a constitutional right, his liberty. These law enforcement officials violated their solemn oath to the Constitution by implying that these criminal (marijuana) laws are not an Article III case or controversy.
The signers of these documents are declaring that these marijuana laws are a political question, rational, political police power, because marijuana is not a fundamental right. The signers of these government court documents deny Sawtelle is a person protected by Amendments IV & V of the Constitution of the United States.
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizure shall not be violated” . . . “No person shall be deprived of life liberty and property without due process of law.”
