Before noon sweat had started to pour down my face as the temperature rose to the 100 mark. I so miss the cool Sacramento Mountains and the tall pines. There are advantages to all locations, but home is where you feel most comfortable and I belong in another world several states away.
A close friend contacted me to let me know that my mother isn't looking well. I was supposed to have a home available for her long before now and I started to panic wondering what to do when we are oceans apart, unable to get a a home on either side of the ocean.
In less than 25 days I will be in New Mexico for the hearing about the stolen home I seem unable to recover. A home in the mountains I adore. This time I must make my appearance count for something.
Sunday morning I was up early enough to get Honey doctored and medicated before heading to church, before spending the afternoon with friends doctoring her again. I didn't go to bed until well after 2 am Monday morning.
I miss the mountains. I miss the cool mountain air. I miss being around those I have known 25 years or more. I miss my life.
You have the right not to be silent.
Crime Victim Rights: Crime in America.Net
Most states have rights built into their constitutions to assist you when you become a victim of crime. But we’ll let you in on a secret; many of us in the criminal justice system don’t know these rights exist.
When we go to the police academy, the overwhelming amount of training we get has to do with the rights of the offender. Violate those rights and you lose your case. It’s as simple as that.
Police officers are also frustrated by the lack of cooperation of victims, considering that in approximately half of violent crimes the victim knows the offender and may be reluctant to cooperate. Many (close to half) of these crimes are not reported, and when reported the information often comes from a third party, not the victim.
We within the justice system have great sympathy for victims as long as they don’t ask for much. We are madly running from one call to the next and, quite simply, we don’t have the time to track down the person who stole your car or burglarized your home. If it’s a major violent crime, yes, we will take the time because we need you to help solve the case.
If it falls into the other 90 percent of reported crimes, we are not insensitive, just busy.
Bull-feathers! We are public servants who are obligated to serve the needs of citizens. Yep, we are busy and budget cuts are not making the job any easier and yes, we would appreciate a little more cooperation from the people we serve.
So when you report your auto stolen or house burglarized, we will let you in on secret number two, call the victim’s right coordinator within your police department or prosecutors office. He or she will make sure that the officers handling your case give you the respect you deserve (if budget cuts haven’t eliminated their positions).
Your rights as a crime victim:
Most states have amended their constitutions to guarantee certain fundamental rights for crime victims. Typically, these include the following:
The right to be notified of all court proceedings related to the offense.
The right to be reasonably protected from the accused offender.
The right to have input at sentencing (e.g., in the form of a victim impact statement).
The right to information about the conviction, sentencing, imprisonment, and release of the offender.
The right to an order of restitution from the convicted offender.
The right to be notified of these rights.
If you are a victim of a crime, these rights apply to you.
You may obtain information about your rights through a local victim/witness assistance program (usually located in the police or prosecutor’s office), the state Attorney General’s Office, or the U.S. Attorney’s Office).

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 am begging anyone in this family for help.
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 footsteps, 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 Sylve 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, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
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.
