Patricio E. Sanchez, a reputed “sovereign citizen” who is listed in state and national databases as a registered sex offender in a case involving a child under the age of 16, has been jailed in Florida for filing a bogus lien against a judge and litigation opponents in a foreclosure case.

The story first was reported by the Daytona Beach News Journal. The PP Blog confirmed details about Sanchez through public database searches and court records in Florida.

Sanchez is listed as an inmate at a Volusia County detention facility. He is being held after he was found in contempt of court for filing the lien against the judge and two attorneys. His path to jail began in January 2009, when a lender filed a foreclosure lawsuit. The lender ultimately prevailed, but Sanchez filed bogus liens and was found in contempt of court last month, according to court records.

The sexual-offender registration for Sanchez shows a 1997 charge of “Lewd or Lascivious” conduct against a child under the age of 16.

Separately, the docket in the foreclosure case features Sanchez-related pleadings that use phrases such as “oath of loyalty for Judges” and “Common Law” and “Uniform Commercial Code.”

Such pleadings and case stylings have surfaced in various types of cases involving so-called “sovereign citizens.”

Florida also has been confronting a situation involving so-called “wild deeds” that are filed to cloud property titles.
