I didn't think you were right about this...

" No disruptive behavior for at least past 24 months prior to consideration for a transfer to any less-secure facility" is what the Wallens Ridge listing says on the VADOC website. This doesn't mean you have to behave yourself to get IN, it means you have to behave yourself to get OUT (transferred).



Red Onion sounds like a totally different kind of joint, they have some special "S" classification for inmates. I am guessing this stands for segregation. I think Angelos, the old head of prisons had these two built as a showcase and a major deterrent. They are constructed as high security prisons, and it wouldn't make sense to house any lower risk inmates there.

Mikey the PedoFag may be a model prisoner and a wussy who won't start any shit with inmates or staff, but the length of his sentence makes him an escape risk and certainly eligible for a higher security institution at least for his initial assignment.

I would bet he winds up in one of these places, level 4 for starters.

http://www.vadoc.state.va.us/facilities/central/nottoway/
http://www.vadoc.state.va.us/facilities/eastern/sussex2/




If he is "lucky" he may go to some of these Level 3 joints where the blades may be an inch shorter and there are 3 to 5% less sexual assaults per year.

OK. Here's the deal kiddies. Inmate Gardner is scheduled for transfer to Coffeewood Correction Center. Just outside Culpepper. It is an intake and "classification facility" That will take 6 months to a year before he heads to Powhatan or Buckingham. Then he will be assigned for the next 18 years.. It will not be Red Onion or Greensville. Sorry.

I believe he's saying that this Gardner guy has been convicted, he's in jail, soon to be in prison, and sweaty red-faced mouth-breathers like you that keep harping on the topic seem to have some odd fascination with Gardner that goes far beyond just wanting to see him in jail...

Rumor has it that his appeal to the 3 judge panel was denied a few weeks ago, but remains unreported. I heard it was June 21. He is still in Arlington lockup. What gives? Seems like he is getting preferential treatment.

Sorry, no link. Like I said, it is a rumor I heard. Apparently you can search for it on the Court of Appeals website, but I am too lazy. FWIW it was from a reliable source.

You can go to this website and type in his name to search for it. His name is listed as Michael Armin Gardner. His appeal was, in fact, denied on June 21st. Looks like movehimdownstate's source was correct.

If you prefer to search by case #, his is 1831-12-4

So, the question remains, why is he still in the Arlington jail? Anyone else feel like this scumbag is getting preferential treatment?

"Virginia Correctional Enterprises -Clothing/Shoe Industry"

Wasn't he convicted due in part to having his man spunk and DNA all over little girls panties?

And now he is making and handling clothes in prison?

Ewwwww, really, that is so gross!

Case MICHAEL ARMIN GARDNER v. COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA (Record Number 131166)
From The Court of Appeals of Virginia
Counsel
Peter D. Greenspun, Jonathan Shapiro, and Mikhail N. Lopez (Greenspun Shapiro PC) for Appellant.
James E. Plowman, Nicole M. Wittmann, and Alejandra R. Amato (Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney) for Appellee.

Assignment of Error
1. The Court of Appeals erred by finding joinder was appropriate under Rule 3A:10(c) despite the nonexistence of a common plan or scheme.
2. The Court of Appeals erred by upholding admission of Dr. Perlin's testimony, despite his reliance on evidence beyond that admitted at trial, and by not finding the Commonwealth failed to establish chain of custody for those materials.
3. The Court of Appeals erred by holding it was not error to exclude Gardner's character evidence on the trait of being sexually assaultive.
4. The Court of Appeals erred by finding that Angela Garcia's and Daniel Rice's testimony regarding third-party actions was not improper victim testimony.
5. The Court of Appeals erred by holding that the trial court did not intrude on the jury's deliberations, requiring a partial verdict to be returned and declaring a mistrial, thereby depriving Mr. Gardner of his right to have one jury decide his case.

Date Granted
01-22-2014

Therefore, I would affirm Gardner's
convictions.

um, Wing - that's not what happened :(

1
Conclusion
We hold that the Court of Appeals erred in denying
Gardner’s appeal, because the circuit court erred by
sustaining the Commonwealth’s objection to Gardner’s question
that sought admissible character evidence. Furthermore, we
cannot say that such error was harmless. Therefore, we will
reverse the judgment of the Court of Appeals, vacate the
convictions, and remand this case to the Court of Appeals
directing that it remand the case to the circuit court for
further proceedings if the Commonwealth be so inclined.

Sexual Assault Conviction Overturned in Michael Gardner Case

Sexual Assault Conviction Overturned in Michael Gardner Case

Witness questioning was wrongly excluded during trial, according to Virginia Supreme Court.
http://fallschurch.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/sexual-assault-conviction-overturned-in-michael-gardner-case

Virginia's Supreme Court has overturned the conviction of Michael Gardner, a prominent Falls Church Democrat who was accused of sexually assaulting two girls in 2011 during a sleepover for his daughter's birthday.

Gardner was sentenced to 22 years in prison, but has continued to claim his innocence throughout the appeals process. "We're not giving up," his wife, Robin Gardner, told Patch in 2013 regarding the appeal process.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court said the lower courts were wrong to reject defense questions of two character witnesses regarding Gardner's reputation as a good caretaker of children.

According to The Washington Post, the commonwealth will have to decide on a retrial. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/virginia-supreme-court-overturns-michael-gardner-molestation-conviction/2014/06/05/bf85d72c-ecc6-11e3-b98c-72cef4a00499_story.html?hpid=z2

Wow ... things do happen quickly. Word around town is that the Gardners are moving into their old house in Falls Church and re-enrolling their kids back in the school with the victims.

It's a shame how this community is so supportive of this family, and worried about their rights, when the rights of the minor kids going through this circus for a second time doesn't seem to matter at all.

Can't wait to see what they do next ... happy anniversary, everyone.

Wonder how he thinks the new trial will end any differently, given that the testimony and evidence will likely be the same. Will having his character witnessess take the stand make a difference?

New testimony from character witnesses shouldn't make any difference. His best hope is for a hung jury. That may seem impossible, given the DNA evidence, but stranger things have happened in court. The defense only has to convince one juror that Gardner is the victim, not the children.

Unfortunately, a second trial likely will be a bigger sensation than the first and an even greater strain on the girls and their families.

With the frequent updates and a thriving community of posts and ripostes, Blueweeds (blueweeds.typepad.com) prevails as Falls Church’s preeminent blog, with an average of 15-18,000 page views a month.

Often times outspoken, and politically progressive in tone, Blueweeds is a product of its primary contributor and founder, Michael Gardner, a former chairman of the Falls Church Democratic Committee. Gardner has managed the site since bringing the rolling commentary on the state of life in Falls Church online in 2006.

“It’s definitely grown beyond what I thought it would be,” says Gardner, who began the site to communicate with family and friends.

Interest in blogging arose from Howard Dean’s wired chairmanship of the Democratic Party, leading a campaign to build a netroots community, “a concept of building a real progressive community with people interested in local events, building relationships,” according to Gardner.

gardnermug.jpgHe is unabashed about his civic interest in Falls Church, or as Gardner called it, his “obsession with what goes on within the community.”

To that end, Blueweeds has blossomed into an engine of community dialogue, between the visitors who comment on and debate the posts and the the team behind Blueweeds, which now includes city resident Bob Burnett, as of spring 2007, and former Falls Church City councilman David Chavern from July 2008. Each member of the team brands the blog with a perspective unique in scope and slant.

Topics range from the ubiquitous concerns of residential planning and the ongoing schism within the Falls Church Anglican and Episcopalian branches to the mundane and eclectic. Take for example a recent post that covered the LEGO Inaugural Ceremonies, or an older post on “Eleven Things about the Mayor,” Robin Gardner, who is Gardner’s wife, including her “dead-on” Ethel Merman impression. Whatever the issue around town, the Blueweeds crew has it covered.

Gardner admits his relationship with the city mayor lends Blueweeds an intimate tie into city politics, but one he insists does not taint his own analysis. “Finding the voice of Blueweeds has been answering this question,” says Gardner. “We’ve had to find a balance.”

As the main voice of Blueweeds, Gardner has struck that balance by mixing serious, often incisive analysis of governmental affairs with a “strong sense of whimsy” and cynicism.

While Gardner does not “pretend to be a professional reporter,” Blueweeds covers a broad swath of Falls Church politics, each post awash with links to sources and supplementary material from city web sites – a singular privilege of online reporting.

“Blogs should be designed to communicate stories as immediately as possible,” Gardner says, and engage the community in the news. “Newspapers have more detail on the issues that should dominate the discussion for the community.”

Blueweeds generates as much news coverage as it does comments of all shades, from the most praising agreement to the biting criticism. “We get a lot of feedback, which is one of the intentions of writing about local stories.” On occasion, Gardner says that some comments are deleted for “very critical or personal” attacks on the writer. “Regular readers understand that Blueweeds exists for them to communicate.”

That understanding applies for the relationship within Blueweeds, whose authors act independently in posting to the site without any editorial supervision. “The beauty is if Mike disagrees with me, he’ll post a comment,” says Burnett. “Everyone has a unique perspective on things. I’ve had some people come up to me and say, ‘How could you post that?’ The point of blogs is it gives you an opportunity to post your thoughts.”

Burnett, who works in communications for TDI and had been a planning commissioner, views Blueweeds, and his other blogs, as a “glorified billboard” where the community can interact. “I saw Blueweeds as an outlet for things I’ve seen going on on the national and local levels,” he says. “I’ve been lucky at work to have people who have developmental expertise in planning consternation like we have in Falls Church.

“I think blogging is great. I was the kid who threw the note across the room in elementary school. And since I grew up in Falls Church, every now and then I can throw in something historical about Falls Church.”

Even in disagreement, Burnett sees moments for pragmatism on the plane of existence in the city. “People can have different perspectives on politics in the city, but we can come together on where is the best coffee at the farmers market.”

Chavern joined the team for similar reasons, he says. “I was happy to volunteer because that’s an important thing with blogs: making it a vibrant community.”

Chavern focuses on the developmental and educational concerns within the city, posting on issues “where I have a strong view” every couple of weeks. Like Burnett, Chavern aims for a more “independent” tone in his posts.

Despite his contributions Chavern does not consider himself a blogger, per se. “I’m not sure when people say, ‘I’m a blogger.’ Is it a full or part-time profession for me? It’s difficult to say I’m a blogger,” he says. “It’s akin to saying there are people who write letters to the editor full-time.”

The key to Blueweeds’ success is Gardner’s consistent “daily slough of material that you don’t tend to get on other sites,” says Chavern.

Chavern added that Blueweeds has had “a positive impact” on the Falls Church community. “Blueweeds gives readers insight that would have been kept at City Hall.”

The Blueweeds team looks forward to continuing churning out regular posts from its three-man team, plus the occasional guest author, but new voices are always sought, says Gardner. “Blogs in general are lacking in female voices.” He suggests that interested female denizens of Falls Church ought to visit the site and gauge their involvement.

Perhaps this would be useful in the Gardner home.

Michael Gardner, the Falls Church resident whose conviction on two charges of child molestation stemming from incidents in 2011 was overturned by the Virginia Supreme Court earlier this month, was granted release from prison on a $50,000 bond in an Arlington court hearing today pending a retrial scheduled to begin February 2, 2015.

Gardner, former chair of the Falls Church City Democratic Committee and husband of former Falls Church Mayor Robin Gardner, was convicted of molesting two girls at a birthday party at his house in 2011 and sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2012.

The Virginia Supreme Court ruled that the Circuit Court trial judge, Benjamin Kendrick, improperly barred two character witnesses from testifying about whether Gardner had a reputation as a good caretaker of children. Their testimony was limited to Gardner’s general reputation for honesty and peacefulness.

All these postings by Wangnut...getting all spun up in his usual psychosexual revenge frothing again.

Are you going to be at luggage stores, or at the airport, on lookout for getaway attempts?

While Wingnut does seem a bit over interested in the case and in seeking revenge, I am more concerned about anyone that would have problems with people seeking revenge on pedophiles. Seems like you have a bit of a guilty conscience, buddy. What's the matter? Don't want others coming down on you as hard for your actions? Or are you just a friend of that pedo, Michael Gardner?

Oh, I see, you are just some random guy that comes to the defense of pedophiles. It all makes sense now.

Shit for brains.

According to the Post, Gardner was granted bond today.

So, in a few hours, he'll be out of jail.

At least until his re-trial.
