The Man Who Secretly Taped Planned Parenthood Could Be Going To Prison - Alongside His Criminal Atty

The Man Who Secretly Taped Planned Parenthood Could Be Going To Prison — Alongside His Criminal Lawyers

Last month, David Daleiden and his criminal defense lawyers released additional footage of abortion providers and the names of 14 of his accusers, possibly violating court injunctions and seals.

The anti-abortion activist behind the videos accusing Planned Parenthood of selling “baby parts,” as he put it, could be going to prison. And now his criminal defense lawyers could join him.

Late last month, David Daleiden and his team of criminal attorneys allegedly flouted multiple injunctions and court-issued seals by posting more shocking videos of abortion providers and identifying 14 of the John/Jane Does participating in the state criminal complaint against him and his recording partner Sandra Merritt. Those names were previously under a court seal.

This apparent defiance of court orders may end up landing Daleiden and his criminal attorneys in contempt of both state and federal court, potentially resulting in fines and jail time — and disbarment for the lawyers.

Daleiden’s work once caused multiple congressional investigations and nearly shut down the government. Two years and multiple lawsuits and legal hurdles later, the 28-year-old and his Planned Parenthood investigation have faded out of the headlines.

But as the cases against Daleiden continue — and grow more complicated — he has become a central figure of the somewhat sidelined culture wars, now playing out in both federal and state court in California. On the one hand, his opponents contend that Daleiden is an extreme activist who edited illegally obtained footage in order to harm the biggest abortion provider in the country and, by proxy, its employees. On the other, is a fierce collection of devoted, anti-abortion followers who see the prosecution of Daleiden as an attack on the First Amendment and the oppression of a “hero” by liberal courts and elected officials.

phony comparisons with honorable people pro and against notwithstanding.

6. "the biggest abortion provider in the country"

Correction needed. Should read:

"one of the finest non-profit healthcare organizations in the country"

Daleiden is a domestic terrorist who directly instigated the massacre at the Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, with malice aforethought.

Almost like it was ... planned.

17. sorry to be pedantic (you can take the English teacher out of the classroom...)

but do you mean immorality?

I can't imagine any Republican achieving immortality except for the evil they do.

10. The videos are heavily edited lies, so of course the GOP ran with it.

p.s. the videos have the appearance of being shocking because they are heavily exited lies.

12. Glad to see there is some justice left on Earth

But the damage done can't be undone...the morons on the right that believed it was all true from the start STILL believe that, maybe now even more so...

This destruction of the truth and objectivity is rampant and is threatening the very core of a free and open society....the concept only works when everyone is using the same set of "facts" and not relying on comfortable lies and / or distortions to shape opinions.

The sickness at the core of our republic is terminal unless it is surgically removed...

16. Lock them up and lose the key

The amount of damage done to the organization is mind-numbing. Those videos did more harm in coaxing the stupid than any protest they came out with. It made their beliefs real and they had "evidence" to support their arguments. I hope they lock them up forever.

18. I'm not sure where "prison" comes into play...the scumbag will skate.

A county jail maybe for 6 months and a chump change fine....unless I'm missing something.

42 U.S. Code § 1995 - Criminal contempt proceedings; penalties.....
"In all cases of criminal contempt arising under the provisions of this Act, the accused, upon conviction, shall be punished by fine or imprisonment or both: Provided however, That in case the accused is a natural person the fine to be paid shall not exceed the sum of $1,000, nor shall imprisonment exceed the term of six months:"
