A hilarious response from the judge to Sovereign Citizen Cherron Phillips’ claims. (She had filed bogus liens amounting to $100 billion dollars)
Shortly before closing arguments began Wednesday, Phillips declined to testify in her own defense, telling the judge, “in personam jurisdiction is not on the record….I have not consented to this legal process.”
“I am interpreting that as a waiver of your right to testify,” said Reagan, who typically sits in federal court in southern Illinois.
She did receive some help from the Jury who refused to convict her on two counts.
The jury deliberated about 2 1/2 hours before reaching the verdict. Phillips was acquitted of two counts involving liens allegedly placed against Chicago police officers involved in her brother’s case. The jury had sent a note during deliberations asking if the Chicago officers qualified as federal officials.
