Ronald James Davenport, Washington State ‘Sovereign,’ Convicted In False-Liens Case

BULLETIN: Ronald James Davenport, the Washington state “sovereign” described by federal prosecutors as a “tax defier,” has been convicted of filing false liens against a former U.S. Attorney, an assistant U.S. Attorney, an IRS agent and a court clerk.

Davenport was charged with four counts and convicted on each. The liens sought the spectacular sum of $5.184 billion from each of the public officials, prosecutors said last year.

The conviction comes as a new false-liens case involving AdSurfDaily figure and purported “sovereign citizen” Kenneth Wayne Leaming is making news in Washington state.

Prosecutors said Davenport, of Chewelah, faces up to 40 years in federal prison. Sentencing has not been scheduled.

Davenport’s liens “were filed in the public records of Spokane County and Whatcom County, Wash.,” prosecutors said today from Washington, D.C.

“As proved at trial, the defendant chose these four victims on account of their service as government officials, namely their involvement in a civil lawsuit against Davenport for about $270,000 in unpaid tax liabilities,” prosecutors said.

Judge Judge Garr M. King of the District of Oregon heard the Davenport case, sitting in the Eastern District of Washington (Spokane) by special designation, prosecutors said.
