Flashback: James Rader Jailed For Contempt


James Andrew Rader

The Cincinnati Black Blog investigation of Hamilton County Public Defender James A. Rader continues. (See, "Target: James Andrew Rader.")

One of my souces was surprised that I hadn't blogged about the time James Rader got arrested and sent to jail after getting angry in the courtroom, bolting out of court and leaving his client there alone, then refusing to return when instructed to do so by Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Fred Nelson. [source] This happened approximately 1 year ago.

According to the linked story above, Judge Nelson repeatedly asked Rader to return into the courtroom, but this moron refused. That's when Judge Nelson had him handcuffed, brought him back into the courtroom, found him guilty of contempt, and threw him in jail for four days.

Who is this James Andrew Rader???

Nate,

This James Rader is a shameful disgrace and there should be an immediate investigation into this menace and criminal with a law degree. His license to practice law should be reviewed immediately in the interest of public confidence in the Hamilton County Public Defender's Office. Anyone with information concerning this low-life should contact Mr. Louis Strigari, the Diretor of The Public Defender's Office, all of the county commissioners and the State Public Defender's Office in Columbus Ohio. Also, contact the local NAACP office and ask to speak to Mr. Chris Smitherman. Finally, anyone can request this guy's records of clients served as a public defender, under the freedom of information act. This public information and we should be allowed to inspect his record of such how effective or ineffective this "dog" has been.

Nate,

There is information around the court environment that this lawyer James Rader is from West Virgina, a pronounced "hater" of Blacks, a KKK menber and a cut from the lowest order as a human being. He is a alcoholic, a sex-addict and a crook. He hates Obama, or course! He should be disbarred if any of these things that are being reported to you is true. Shame on the Public Defender's Office for palcing the public at-risk by exposing the public to him.

Nate,
What this "white" guy, Rader, has been allowed to do is because he is "white" is wear the mask of a legitimate and professional lawyer. I recall that years ago a "white" guy named West was allowed to enter a few local hospitals while posing as a doctor. No one ever questioned anything about Mr. West because he was "white". This is a matter of fact in "white" America. In "white" America there is a racist mentality that will questioned a Black doctor(or lawyer) and second guest a Black doctor's decisions. I have a friend in charge of a department at a local hospital and this friend is always "second guested". Rader has been allowed to hurt and harm alot of people, who he should have been helping. Someone placed a "wolf" in a sheep yard. Heaven help us!!!!!

Nate,
A few friends and myself read your blog and regarding James Rader, the lawyer. He is a disciple of John Cohen, a self-proclaimed "nazi" from Clemont County that murder a youth some years ago because they trespassed on his property-A "junkyard". Rader is in the "junkyard" business. This maggot is the George Wallace and Lester Maddox of this day, both were the disciples of "race hate" in the 1950's and 1960's. We are all white and he is a disgrace to our race and profession.

Nate,
I am appalled that this lawyer, James Rader, has been permitted to victimize poor, defenseless and vulnerable people. This person is a cancer that the system must rid itself of. I can only wonder how many helpless people have been injured and harmed by this bedeviled man. Recently in federal court a former landlord was found guilty of using his position of power and control to sexually exploit and misuse woman that rented from him. In addition, there was a damage suit handed down by this court in the amount of hundred of thousands of dollars. The county, Rader and the Public Defender's Office should be sued in this matter. This man has violated countless of laws and the rights of alot of poor and helpless people. This could be a epic dimensions. Please keep demanding for redress on this matter.

I have now finished interviewing one of James Rader's victims and plan to interview another sometime this weekend. What this person (who is afraid to go public because they fear retaliation from Rader) told me is nothing short of shocking.

Mr. Livingston,

I was represented by Mr. Rader some 13 years ago and he prepared a 'legal' lyching for me by doing absolutey nothing to defend me. I ended up doing 11 years for something that I didn't do. Mr. Rader introduced himself as a public defender, then asked my mother to retain him as a pain lawyer because he "could get me cleared of these weak charges". He refused to allow me to go to trial until my mother paid him in full-$3000.00. Then, he had them bring me down to court and told me that I must enter a plea and the judge would give me a "light sentence" of probation. He never notified my mother that he was bringing me to court. The judge threw the book at me. I called my mother from the jail and she rushed down to Mr. Rader's office and confronted him with his lies and deception. In anger, Mr. Rader told my mother that he did the best that he could do. For $3000.00 we got $3.00 worth of representation. We have never seen or heard from Mr. Rader since then. From prison a wrote to him serveral times and never received a reply. My life was totally destroyed because of this man, because I was mistakenly identified as a person who committed a robbery, when it was a cousin who looked like me. All Mr. Rader had to do was call my mother, my cousin and other witnesses to come to court to testify on my behalf and I would have been freed. He has go to prison for what he did to me and my mother.

Nate,
"For evil to prevail all that is needed is a few good men do nothing". This matter with the lawyer, James Rader, is more serious than the Mike Allen scandal, the catholic priest sex mess, the child left in the car and the call for Chabot to investigate the conflict of interest on the part of council woman Cole, giving Dwight Tillery all of those city dollars, knowing that this is terribly improper. This is more disgusting than the monster as the morgue having sex with dead women. Someone needs to step up and stop this guy. We should contact 20/20, Date Line or 60 Minutes. This guy must be stopped! This lawyer is worst than David Duke. This guy is Charles Manson with a license to practice law, but he is murdering the souls of the people he suppose to be helping. This is how Jeffery Dalmore was allowed to get away with his murder and torturing of helpless people for so long, because no one intervened. For God sake's man, someone must stop this evil and sick man!
