"DO GOOD... SEEK JUSTICE.... DEFEND THE FATHERLESS CHILD." - Isaiah 1:17

PROBATION OFFICERS ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM THEIR OFFENDER.
 
HOW COULD MR. HADSELL'S PROBATION OFFICER ALLOW HIM TO LIVE WITH 3 YOUNG GIRLS (7, 9, & 13) KNOWING ALL THAT HE DID OR WAS ACCUSED OF?

Besides THIS list of crimes which we DID know about at the 2010 Family Court trial:


  • January 21, 1996 - Burglary (2 counts)1994 - Ran away from home.  Out of state for a couple months.
  • January 21, 1996 - Grand Larceny
  • January 26, 1996 - Burglary
  • January 24, 1998 - Felony Break & Entry
  • March 14, 1998 - Felony Restraint of a Minor Girl
  • October 2, 1998 - Forgery
  • November 1, 1998 - Forgery
  • November 20, 1998 - Burglary - 2nd degree
  • December 18, 1998 - Forgery (2 counts)
  • August 3, 2000 - September 11, 2001 - Dozens of infractions in prison, including Threats and Sexual Act

  • September 8, 2005 - Felony Eluding Police (not charged)

The PROBATION OFFICER also knew THIS about Hadsell's criminal history:

  • 1990 - Age 12 - Petty Larceny, Possession of Stolen Property, Indecent Phone Call
  • 1994 - Ran away from home.  Out of state for a couple months.
  • 1994 - "Mom was afraid of him due to unpredictable behaviors."
  • 1996 - Arrests (not tried) for:  Arson to his home while his family was inside, Contrib. to Delinquency of a Minor, Fugitive from Justice, Flight, more..
  • 2005 - He separated from wife due to drug abuse and depression and stolen checks.
  • 2005 - During the 2-week abduction, his estranged wife reported multiple rapes, multiple robberies, violence and threats to kill members of her family if she did not comply
  • 2005-2010 (IN PRISON) 70 VIOLATIONS including - Attempted Murder (stabbing a man multiple times in the face), Assault, Threatening Bodily Harm, Disobeying Orders, Setting Fire (2x), Destruction of Property (3x), Possession of Intoxicants (2x), attempts and threats of suicide, Attempted Escape, and other things.
  • Child Support Arrears
  • Mental Health History:  Diagnosed with Mood Disorder, PTSD, Personality Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Anti-Social and Borderline Traits, and Psychotic Features.  Hearing voices.  Said, "I want to get all the violence out of my head".
  • History of Drug Abuse
  • Willfully Providing False Information to the Court
  • "Tattoos of skulls and death" - "Because I'm fascinated with death."
  • Suicide attempts - repeatedly cutting wrists, hanging
  • Interstate drug running
  • Dangerous plea deal?  It appears he made a plea deal with the feds for lesser charges, since so many crimes were not prosecuted.  His turning evidence on high ranking drug runners could have put my children in danger.

On February 17, 2010 Wesley Hadsell was released from federal maximum security prison (Victorville), having served his last 2 years and 2 months in solitary confinement .  

On April 9, 2010 Mr. Hadsell met my children's mother - Jennifer Busby-Hadsell, at a bar.  Within 2 weeks he was living with Jennifer and my 3 daughters, aged 7, 9, & 13.

Hadsell's Probation Officer, Tomas Ramirez informed Mr. Hadsell that he must be married in order to cohabitate with a woman.  On May 12 they got married.  

Mr. Ramirez knew about Hadsell's prison record (over 70 violations), which included multiple assaults, attempted murder, major mental health issues, drug abuse, gang involvement, increasing security placement, and many infractions of moral turpitude.

The probation officer placed no limitations on Hadsell regarding my daughters.

Mr. Ramirez did not take a minute to call or write to me and let me know that Hadsell was living with my daughters.

On June 2, 2010 I filed to get full custody of my girls (I had 50/50) in order to protect them from this man the mother barely knew.  

On October 24, 2010 my lawyer sent a subpoena to the Probation Officer, Tomas Ramirez, so that he might testify as to Hadsell's criminal record.  

On November 1, his office rejected our subpoena.  The subpoena and rejection are below.

An outline of his criminal history is below and more details HERE.



Court transcripts from the 2016 sentencing for Poss. of Ammo.  
This information comes from the PROBATION OFFICER in the Presentence Report.  He knew all of this and STILL allowed Hadsell to live with my daughters and couldn't even testify in Family Court or provide me ANY kind of assistance.

*Note - In some cases (such as Family Court) we had to use Anjelica's birth name, "Langer", but she was widely known as ANJELICA HOFFER - in school, at doctors, in sports, etc.. - from baby until age 16, when she had it officially changed to Hadsell.

HERE IS THE SUBPOENA, ASKING THE PROBATION OFFICER TO TESTIFY IN FAMILY COURT.

HERE IS THE REJECTION FROM THE PROBATION OFFICE.

This is a recording of a phone call with Officer Edmunds, Probation Supervisor for Officer Tomas Ramirez.  This call was 5.23.18.  I have not heard from the office since.  I had tried contacting the office numerous times prior to this phone call and finally had to leave an agitated message before receiving a call back.

A letter to Chief Judge Davis trying to get change to U.S. Probation Services

I have sent the following policy change requests to US Court Chief Judge Mark Davis and Congresswoman Elaine Luria:

Change to Probation Policy (Federal and State):

1.  REQUIRE MALE PROBATIONERS TO KNOW A MOTHER FOR MORE THAN A YEAR BEFORE COHABITATION - WHEN CHILDREN LIVE IN THE HOME.

  • In our situation, the probationer and my children's mother were required to marry before cohabitation.  This did not suffice.
 
2.  ENCOURAGE PROBATION OFFICERS TO TESTIFY IN COURT DURING CUSTODY PROCEEDINGS, ABOUT A PROBATIONER'S PRISON VIOLATIONS AND OTHER PERTINENT HISTORY.

  • In our case, the U.S. Attorney's Office interpreted the policy to mean the probationer's privacy was of primary importance.  In fact, public safety is more important, according to their own policy.
 
3.  ENFORCE SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS UPON PROBATIONERS WITH A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, AND/OR REPEAT OFFENSES IN RELATION TO THEIR EXPOSURE TO CHILDREN.  

  • In our case the probationer had a history of rape, strangulation, abduction, kidnapping, career criminal, burglaries, robberies, arson, serious mental illness, drug abuse, other crimes not known, etc..  This should have forbidden him from being alone around my daughters.
 
4.  EDUCATE PROBATION OFFICERS ON THE VULNERABILITY OF SINGLE MOTHERS WITH CHILDREN.  

  • Unfortunately there are many instances of men on probation, harming mothers and/or their children.  I have not seen this issue addressed in any of the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services videos or policy.
