Judge removes Jeena Nilson from court as she again disrupts status hearing

LOGAN — For the third time, a judge had to remove Jeena Nilson from court, after the 61-year-old Providence woman again acted out during a scheduled status hearing. She has been in jail the past five weeks, after refusing to approach the stand during her sentencing hearing.

Tuesday afternoon, Nilson was led by bailiffs into the 1st District Courtroom, wearing handcuffs and shackles. She immediately began telling the court she objected to the hearing, saying the court was not justified.

Nilson went on to argue that she did not consent to anything the court ordered, and demanded to be released immediately. She then started repeating her full name, adding, “I am a breathing woman, blood flows and the flesh lives.”

Judge Kevin Allen ordered deputies to remove Nilson after she would not stop rambling. After she was gone, he explained that the hearing was scheduled so attorneys could give an update on her competency hearing, that he ordered last month.

Judge Allen said doctors had reported to him, they had met with Nilson but had not completed their report, determining whether she is competent to understand the judicial process. He also expressed concern that she was trying to represent herself without an attorney, and assigned public defender Mike McGinnis to the case.

In October 2017, a jury found Nilson guilty of failing to disclose her social media accounts and work at a gym, in her sex-offender registry. The verdict came after a two-day trial, where she refused to take the witness stand. She was found guilty on three of four charges of failing to register as a sex offender, a third-degree felony.

The jury found Nilson didn’t disclose that she was working or volunteering at the Altius Gymnastics Academy. She also didn’t report her Facebook page and Linked In account.

Nilson was originally scheduled to be sentenced in January. It has been delayed several times after she filed multiple motions to postpone it. She could face up to five-years in prison.

In November 2002, Nilson was sentenced to one-to-15 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of sex abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.

During Tuesday’s hearing, Judge Allen said he will continue to order Nilson to be held in jail because she has been convicted on the three felonies. He scheduled another status hearing for December 10.

    Again poor reporting on Jeena! One sided and not based on fact…. Have you researched your private for profit court ie bank, with its dun and Bradstreet number? No different than a branch of Wells Fargo, or a McDonalds franchise.
    De facto and not De Jure suedo governmental services company. Owned by a guy in Ogden where his corporate headquarters is based. Is this a court of record? No. Does it use a court seal? No. Does it have constitutional lawful standing? No. Are the Judges real Judges? No they are administrators. Ask yourselves this…. when a prosecutor runs complete control over a Grand Jury and there is no defense represented. Then they will indict a ham sandwich if the prosecutor says to… then based on that indictment, a man is arrested and jailed spending months in jail. While there his reputation is destroyed, he’s lost his job, sometimes his house and cars are foreclosed and repossessed. That causes relationships to be destroyed. Then even if he is found innocent his life is destroyed, sometimes beyond recovery and where is his restitution? Then to top it off SCOTUS says rules, codes, statutes, ordinances, are not law, but merely corporate bylaws. Statute enforcement then becomes a collection of tax. Is this Justice?

    I personally know Jeens. she has told me her side of the story. I have gone to three of her court sessions where I have personally witnessed administrator Kevin Allen’s crimes against Jeena Nilson. I have personally read the false narratives presented by the Logan, Utah Herold Journal News Paper and a certain radio station I am looking up the name of right now. I am going to expose their outright lies and attacks on Jeena’s character. All of this came about because of crimes committed by the son of a Logan, Utah LDS/Mormon bishop, where said bishop and his son fabricated the false allegations against Jeena to hide the crimes of his son’s conduct. We are going to expose all of these crimes and the participants involved, clear on up to the first Presidency of the church. If that bishop thinks he can hide behind the veil of being a bishop for the church, if he thinks he can use the judge/courtroom administrator, prosecutors and others to cover the crimes of his son, he better think again. I am now hot on the trail of all of them now that judge/ courtroom administrator Kevin Allen has refused to act in a lawful manner and has continued to act as a criminal himself.

    These crimes are going to be fully exposed for their crimes against Jeena Nilson. these criminals are not government employees. They are working for a corporation, for profit, even if it means violating the rights of law abiding People. It is all going to be exposed.

    Because of these crimes committed against Jeena, she has now been given the incentive to learn law, so these matters are going to be exposed to the light of day for all to see. Even if they murder her, others of us are going to expose the truth to the People.

    Kevin Allen, that Mormon / LDS bishop, you and your son and all conspirators, including all news media who fabricate stories with false narratives, are going to be exposed for the criminals you are, or are allowing yourselves to be used as.
