BULLETIN: Kenneth Wayne Leaming Will Remain In Jail; Judge At Bail Hearing Today Ruled Him A Flight Risk And Danger To The Community

Kenneth Wayne Leaming

BULLETIN: Purported “sovereign citizen” and AdSurfDaily figure Kenneth Wayne Leaming will remain jailed after a judge at a bail hearing today found that Leaming was a flight risk and a danger to the community, the office of U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan of the Western District of Washington said this evening.

Leaming, 55, of Spanaway, Wash., was arrested last month on charges of filing false liens against public officials involved in the ASD Ponzi scheme case in the District of Columbia. The liens allegedly were filed in Pierce County in Washington state.

In advance of today’s 3 p.m. PT hearing, Leaming argued in court filings that he should be freed pending trial. U.S. Magistrate Judge J. Richard Creatura disagreed at today’s hearing, which was held in Tacoma.

Leaming has been detained at the Sea Tac Federal Detention Center near Seattle since his Nov. 22 arrest. Prosecutors said last week that firearms were found at the Leaming arrest scene.

At a proceeding last month, Creatura preliminarily found that Leaming had no adequate residence and that “no condition or combination of conditions which defendant can meet will reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant as required and/or the safety of any other person and the community.”

Creatura specifically found at the first proceeding that Leaming’s history included a “failure to comply with Court orders and terms of supervision” in a previous case in which he was charged with piloting an airplane without a license.

On one of the occasions in which he violated his probation in the aircraft-piloting case, Leaming claimed he had “diplomatic status or immunity.” On another occasion, he filed a “vexatious lawsuit lien or retaliatory complaint,” according to the FBI.

Records show that Leaming tried to overturn his conviction in the aircraft-piloting case by making the strange assertion that the court hearing the case was a “BANK.”

  1. I think i see why the Judge ruled that way. Leaming was going to “temporarily” stay with a friend who lived in a mobile home. I think they term “mobile” may have inferred the home could be moved at will. How funny is this stuff?? LOL

  2. Good grief, has this guy gotten into the shaman’s ceremonial peyote stash? Gotta be true, ya can’t make this stuff up…!

  3. Where is Curtis Richmond? That is all we need to make this story “special.”

  4. In addition to what I just posted, I should observe how the sovereign citizen movement has been involved in fraud. They are involved in tax avoidance schemes as well as having an increased involvement in Ponzi Schemes. I guess that once a person is convinced that the laws do not apply to them, they feel free to cheat their fellow men. I suppose that buyer beware applies to all innocent buyers of tax avoidance programs, mortgage reduction programs, gold investment programs and almost any other “program” promising high returns and little or no risk.

    Rather than being an amusing side show, this movement has the promise of doing systemic harm to the economy.
