****The Price Of Crime****

The rain today was simply wonderful but Ruidoso seemed to get so much more than the slight sprinkling Alto received. Still, the lower temperature felt great and we have 3 or 4 days of rain forecast.

I was raised to believe that crime doesn't pay, and I know that God assures us that it will not pay in the end - but with the months fleeting by my focus is on the winter and how I'm going to be able to see my mother, and get into a home again. It's been such a long time since I last had a home or could see my mother.
Because Robert Huckins stole our building fund in 2008 I have invested almost $140,000, and ended up homeless.

IF he returned the $82,000 he stole from us I could buy a nice used double wide and get the barn finished. Have enough funds to get the utilities turned on. Get our lives restored. But he won't return the money because not one person wants to make him return the money.
While Robert & Sylve Huckins sat inside their comfortable home last winter I was sat in MINUS 25 degree's weather with NO heat. And this has continued on for over 3 years.

In other words, he doesn't have to pay a price for his criminal behavior. The victims do.

Desperate for any type of a home, and with a small amount of donated money, in 2010 I purchased an old single wide and tried to get it renovated. CID (New Mexico Construction Industries) came along and red tagged me. http://roberthuckinsvictim.blogspot.com/2010/10/new-mexico-cid-twilight-zone.html By the time the dust had settled and permits issued all volunteers had disappeared.

Having been given 27 years in jail for felony fraud and embezzlement in three (3) cases, including mine, the time in jail was suspended on the proviso that Robert Huckins return my money "with expedience." A court order was issued that after the hearing I learned was .. quite truthfully.. not worth the paper it's written on. In other words, restitution in the state of New Mexico is unenforceable. My chances of getting anything but a little bit at a time for a very short period of time is almost zero. If we could talk in minus zero terms that would be more befitting. http://roberthuckinsvictim.blogspot.com/2011/06/robert-huckins-legal-plea.html

In the 1980's Robert & Sylve Huckins purchased a house for $160,000 or thereabouts. A judge in Roswell, New Mexico, removed all the liens previous victims put on his home. Making him debt free. Dorothy McKeever had received $200 in restitution and was told to give the money back to Robert Huckins.
She had a heart attack and died before she could cash the checks.

Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Dorothy's daughter's wrote:

My mother was a victim of Bob Huckins she worked her whole life to retire in Ruidoso when he cheated her of her dream. He took advantage of her kind heart her trust and she is left with an unfinished home - he walked away with well over 100K. We thought the safety measures were in place the bank 'WAS' to send an inspector for each draw he requested. He would bring an invoice to my mother who is sight impaired and tell her what he had done she would sign and submit to the bank. The bank would send an inspector and release the money to him. Reviewing the paperwork of work he claimed to have completed was fabricated and not even started but there on the bottom of the page was a signature from an inspector - a co-conspirator I can only suspect. She had to return to work in her 70's to pay for other contractors to make the house livable. My stomach turns when I go there and see the hardships she has had to endure and the conditions she has had to live in.
I hope you get your due Mr. Hutchins - you are a crook. My faith is only in the judicial system that they will successfully convict you and you spend you time behind bars.

I am also disgusted with Mr. Huckins...He left my mother with a half built house as stated by Judy Torres my sister. I blame him and the bank for distributing the monies to him when a full inspection was not completed properly. When I asked the bank for the names of the inspectors I was told they could not disclose that information. I did have a signature but of course could not identify any of the letters. And it seems rather odd when all the monies were distributed to Bob the loan officer at the bank was transferred. My mother sits there with a half built house while he is still running around the town and not behind bars.

Dana Dildene was another victim:

I'm trying to take care of my elderly mom who needs 24/7 care + work, etc. We have lost more money than we can afford at this point to help them survive the rest of their life. Every month is tough to meet the bills and we have no state assistance. He left us high and dry and cost us years worth of rent to help take care of my mom's increasing medical costs. I received a letter for creditors to attend the bankruptcy court in Roswell. I attended and was told that due to the bankruptcy they were removing the lien I put on his house. It's totally unfair.

There has to be someone related to Robert & Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers f
ootsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.

Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.

Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylvi Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW.

Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it.
There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying
$140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.

Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.

Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince
Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. ~Philip K. Dick
