Victim rights scarce in Pennsylvania

It is between a weekend and July 4 holiday, however those who are hired or elected to SERVE THE PEOPLE should be doing just that, serving the people.

Still no date posted for the June 20, 2012 order to re-schedule a hearing on the case of the widow of Raymond Marc Zachry, know as Ray by his family and friends.In this case it is the state of Pennsylvania vs. Darlene Zachry, Annetta Frackman, William “Bill” Werneke and wife Lisa Miller-Werneke in the criminal action against the deceased husband of Darlene Zachry a/k/a/ Zachery, Raymond Marc Zachry.

There is a collection of criminal charges stemming from a forged will, forged letter to NY Life Insurance Company and purposely lying under oath in depositions, court testimony, sworn affidavits to register of wills of Montgomery County, PA and conspiracy among the group to defraud the estate so that the widow Zachry could keep all the assets, real estate, personal property and life insurance  proceeds of her deceased husband.

It was four years before Montgomery County, PA district attorney filed the case, and then only when the Attorney General‘s insurance fraud investigator delivered the case to them; and still they are dragging their feet, kicking and screaming because the case is in their court.

How many pre-trial extensions are normal in a case?  According to the docket, there has already been a “call of the trial” that usually means there will be a trial date set.  But, not in Pennsylvania, they gave two extensions since then – one of those because the attorney Jonathan Sobel for the widow Zachry did not show up in court on April 23, 2012.

That hearing was re-scheduled for June 20, 2012 when again, the attorney Sobel was predisposed at another hearing out of the county.

As victims Ray’s family traveled over two hours to attend these scheduled hearings only to find out  they were not going to happen that day.

An interesting discovery in the court room was from an unidentified attorney who called out to Judge Smythe from the floor to tell him that he was familiar with the case and had information that it was probably going to be resolved out of court.

As victims, aren’t we supposed to be notified of schedule changes, plea deals, new information?

Apparently not in PA.

    Keep pushing! I think the other side is hoping they can wear you down and you will just go away – clearly they do not know you. And I sure wish the unidentified attorney would have elaborated on what he knew.

    The memorial flowers are beautiful.



    • They sure do not know our family and our love for Ray. If the widow Zachry a/k/a/ Zachery loved him as much as she claims, she would be leading the charge for justice instead of hiding behind forged documents and legal loopholes. Thank you for your support. It is so helpful.
