It's a wacky world, to say the least, and occasionally I end up writing about people I know and even like, despite the fact that what I have to tell you about them may not be flattering.

This time, it involves a fellow whom many in Phoenix legal circles and in the activist community know as Jameson Johnson, whose company, Southwest Litigation Support, does mitigation work for attorneys.

That means he researches an attorney's client's past and puts together a package to present to a judge before sentencing, in hopes of scoring a lighter sentence for the defendant.

By all accounts, Johnson is good at it. So much so that his services have been utilized by a number of well-known lawyers in town.

Johnson is an affable, intelligent, and articulate guy. Heretofore, he's been well known and liked around the federal courthouse and superior court by both law enforcement officials and defense attorneys.

His now-former girlfriend Joy Bertrand is a CJA, or Criminal Justice Act attorney, one on a list of such lawyers who represent federal defendants, and she has a sterling record as a legal beagle in Wisconsin and Arizona.

A former Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and former Assistant District Attorney in Milwaukee, Bertrand also has used Johnson for mitigation work.

I've known both of them from activist circles. For instance, Bertrand acted as a defense attorney for one of the "Capitol 9," the students arrested in April 2010 for chaining themselves to the Capitol building in protest of Senate Bill 1070.

Johnson was one of those who spoke out on behalf of Marcia Powell, the 48-year-old woman who died at Perryville Prison in 2009 after being left in a human cage for at least four hours in the blazing Arizona sun. He assisted in finding a final resting place for Powell and spoke at a memorial service for her.

Also in 2009, Johnson was instrumental in getting St. Mary's Food Bank to drop the use of off-duty Maricopa County sheriff's deputies near the facility. The fear being that the presence of MCSO cars and officers would deter some Latinos from taking advantage of the food bank's charity.

Johnson's been strident in his opposition to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and has expressed this to the Board of Supervisors during public comments at supervisors meetings.

Needless to say, both Johnson and Bertrand are beloved among local lefties, for the most part, as well as by some in the local Democratic Party.

Still, Johnson often cops a pro-law enforcement stance. He has vaguely described having been a cop in his past to me and to others. His Facebook page states that he was in the U.S. Navy from January 1987 to September 1998.

But Johnson has a few surprises in his past that he did not make public, and apparently kept secret even from Bertrand. According to court records, his name is actually Jimmy Carroll Johnson, and he has a criminal record in Nevada for armed robbery and in Oregon for second-degree robbery.

This information came to light in a public order recently issued by District Court Judge Neil Wake. Wake had previously authorized Johnson to render up to $2,400 in services to a defense attorney in a particular case.

But at some point, Wake was presented with information that Johnson was a convicted felon. In a sealed communication, he asked Johnson to appear before him and explain the criminal record. Johnson did not reply to Wake, so Wake issued an order, kicking Johnson off the case.

"The court concludes that Mr. Johnson is the same Jimmy Carroll Johnson, who is the subject of the two judgments of criminal convictions attached to this order," Wake wrote. "The court further finds that he failed to disclose those convictions to the court (or to defendant's counsel)."

The fallout from this incident has had broader implications than just for Johnson or any of the lawyers with whom he's been associated. District Court Chief Judge Roslyn Silver issued a general order earlier this month clarifying the requirements for non-licensed experts working for CJA attorneys.

Private investigators, medical experts, and the like must have their licensing confirmed by the lawyers. For those who do not need to be licensed — mitigators like Johnson — the lawyer has to at least present an accurate résumé. That is, if they want to submit a bill to the feds and get paid.

Following up on the documents attached to Wake's order, I was able to pull several mug shots from the police departments and penal institutions involved. Johnson was in the Nevada Department of Corrections' custody from May 18, 1993, to August 29, 1996.

This was for robbing a clothing store at gunpoint in Reno. According to reports from the Reno Police Department, after the robbery, he was arrested on an outstanding warrant for grand theft auto out of Idaho, though what happened with that case is unclear.

I don't yet have the details on the crime in Clackamas County, Oregon. But the Oregon Department of Corrections confirmed that it held him from October 11, 1996 to July 11, 1997, and he was on probation 'til July 22, 1999.

Both of these records seem to belie the precise dates Johnson gives for his military record.

How did this information arrive on the desk of Judge Wake? Johnson's past came to light during an investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service following the arrest of infomercial huckster Don Lapre.

Lapre had failed to appear in court on June 22, for arraignment on 41 counts of fraud-related charges. Deputy U.S. Marshals collared him a day and a half later. He had been hiding out in a 24/7 Lifetime Fitness center in Tempe, where he supposedly attempted suicide by knifing his leg, trying to hit his femoral artery in order to bleed out.

The Marshals Service had the area under surveillance. Its deputies eventually pulled over a vehicle driven by a Lapre relative, with the wounded Lapre as a passenger, and one other person in the back seat wearing medical gloves: Jameson Johnson.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Matt Hershey confirmed Johnson's presence in the car.

Bertrand was also in the vicinity, in another car, and was ordered away by marshals, according to Bertrand's lawyer, Tim Eckstein.

"They were in the process of contacting the marshals service," Eckstein tells me. "But his injuries were so severe that he could have died or something close to that."

So Bertrand and Johnson were trying to get Lapre to a hospital, according to Eckstein. He says he is not at liberty to discuss how they discovered where Lapre was. Bertrand had not yet been formally appointed Lapre's lawyer, but she was about to be, according to court record. (After Lapre's arrest, a different lawyer was assigned.)

When I spoke to the Marshals Service in June about the incident, Bertrand and Johnson were not mentioned by name, but the Marshals Service had begun an investigation into then-unnamed individuals with Lapre during his arrest for possibly harboring a fugitive or hindering prosecution.

No charges were brought, and there is no evidence either Bertrand or Johnson broke the law. But the Marshals Service did uncover Johnson's misdeeds, some nearly 20 years old.

Eckstein tells me that Bertrand knew nothing of Johnson's past. In fact, he says, when Bertrand began dating Johnson, she did a background check on him, as a single woman might do. But she discovered nothing under the name "Jameson Johnson."

Bertrand is no longer using Johnson's firm, though there is nothing to preclude a lawyer from hiring Johnson still, even with his past record. There are instances of people with criminal records doing paralegal work for lawyers, for instance.

The most famous example locally is probably James Hamm, who is employed by Phoenix attorney Ulises Ferragut as a paralegal and mitigation specialist. Hamm, who has a law degree, did 17 years in prison for killing a man. He's never hidden his past and continues to work as a paralegal, though he is not allowed to practice law.

Why wasn't Johnson similarly forthcoming?

As this column was going to press, Johnson at last responded to numerous requests for comment. In an e-mail, he stated that there was a filing being made with the court in reference to the situation. And he decried my intent to tell this story, stating, "This is nothing but a smear campaign fomented by law enforcement, and is inconsequential to the overwhelming majority of news consumers."

However, according to Eckstein, Johnson has offered Bertrand an odd, Robert Ludlum-like explanation for his criminal record.

"He insists there's an explanation for all this," Eckstein says. "That the [court] documents are themselves either not true or were created at the behest of law enforcement to facilitate him going into jail as an undercover agent for some kind of operation."

Eckstein says he believes Johnson is looking for someone in law enforcement to back up this unlikely Bourne Identity scenario.

I asked around to different law enforcement officials I know. They told me such situations are rare, and if they're done, the record would be corrected once such an operation was over.

Bertrand and Johnson are no longer "together," in Eckstein's words. They once identified themselves as being in a relationship with each other on Facebook. No more, though photos on Johnson's page testify to the fact that, until recently, they were a happy couple.

Eckstein describes his client as being blindsided by the revelations, as well as "embarrassed, horrified, and concerned for her career" and how she'll be perceived in the legal community.

Several people who know both Johnson and Bertrand have contacted me, asking me not to write about the matter.

I did feel somewhat conflicted, as I've broken bread and had beers with Johnson, and, full disclosure, Johnson has provided tips to me in the past.

But if I didn't know either Bertrand or Johnson socially, this matter would still be a story that intrigued me. Perhaps it intrigues me even more because I'm familiar with them.

Heck, an erstwhile armed robber, who at age 42 had built himself a lucrative mitigation service and regularly interacted with the federal court, hobnobbing with cops and anti-Arpaio activists alike?

That alone is news. Add to it the fugitive vitamin titan Lapre, the fact Johnson kept his record a secret, along with his subsequent black-ops explanation for his past, and it practically sounds like the treatment for a Hollywood thriller.

Finally, it's not in my DNA to look the other way when some left-field tale comes rocketing toward my head. If it were, I wouldn't be in this business.

All Illegal aliens should be allowed to apply for work permits but only while they are outside the United States in their home countries. This type of program (guest workers) has worked very well for many years in economically successful places such as Switzerland, Singapore to name a few. Once their work visa expires they must immediately leave the country. If the females become prgnant, they are immediately returned to their home country. commit any violation of ANY law (even "J" walking) and they are deported. If they attempt to re-enter the US illegaly, they are automatically placed on a list of permanently banned from entry into the US. Are you with us?Just enforce the Immigration Laws and treat all people who want to enter the US fairly. Don't show preference to those that entered illegally. Justice for all?

I've discovered Jameson and Joy are really good people, doing great things. I wish the best for them. Time to move forward and let them get back to work!

I don't know these people so I can't speculate about them, who knows, but, given an average ex-con and an average attorney I'm thinking average ex-con dude ain't foolin' anybody about his character or integrity... They just ain't too swift.... I'm thinking on average, the averageattorney plays along, and uses average ex-con like mad, maybe schools him a little, and then plays dumb leaving him twisting in the wind if something were to go wrong. I think I saw it on TV...

I'm an average person, and based on the photo alone I would walk a mile out of my way to avoid potential contact with this guy. So, if you told me average citizen "Joy" actually dated him, I would immediately suspect that she is retarded. However, if you said citizen "Joy" "is a CJA, or Criminal Justice Act attorney, one on a list of such lawyers who represent federal defendants, and she has a sterling record as a legal beagle in Wisconsin and Arizona.", I gotta suspect something is up...

I would encourage JJ to stop protecting who ever schooled him to lie about this stuff and just confess.

First - 15 years a model citizen, and a guy who turned his life around from crime to help others. And I mean real help not B.S.

Second - Nothing hear that was done was illegal. Last I see he has been crime free since 1996.

Third - people make mistakes, especially when addicted to drugs.

Fourth - I would never blame a 3x convicted felon for wanting to change their name, start a new life, and burry their past. When you burry the past, you have to create a new one, lies are required. No one gives a 3x felon a second chance. If you think otherwise, look for work, and say, by the way, I was a felon 3x.

Fifth - his ex girlfriend has ALWAYS been a role model, so posters who have bad things to say about her, get a life.

Sixth - nobody other than the author of the article or those who personally know them really find this to be a news interest piece.

Seventh - the real reason for the Article is the author is butt hurt he never realized the guy he had beers with had lied to him, obvious hit piece by a POS. Wanna be journalist.

Eighth - lying is never good, but sometimes necessary to make it in this world when you have a checkered past, have turned the corner and have helped others for over 15 years. Except for the fact that he worked in the judicial system, and did not break any laws, the fact that he had on medical gloves to try and save a life of a man, this would be a total non-issue.

Ninth - past criminal record yes 15 years ago. Model citizen, activist, did great volunteer and community work the last 15 years.

Tenth - New Times journalist destroyed a good mans life, current great reputation, and destroyed a mans livelihood, destroyed a happy couples life, and resulted in their break up of a very happy and respectable relationship.

Eleventh - jj I will be by your side you have done 20 times more good in the world than bad, and the bad was over 15 years ago.

Twelfth - those who called him a friend and have run away from this guy and have posted mean comments, you are just as much a fraud. Shame on you, and may you never have to be on the other side of something like this. Yes "BAD THINGS DO HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE.".

I personally would like JJ to apologize to the community, to Joy, to his legal associates, the courts, his friends, and acquaintances.

Then I would like JJ to go right back doing the good deeds and work right here in Phoenix that he has been doing for years.

His stories were so outlandish it was ridiculous. He was always very vauge about his LE and military past. Even the most "black ops" undercover guys dont act like that. Take Joe Pistone, or Jay Dobyns for example. They are quiet consumate professionals who dont sit around in bars bragging about exploits. This country has been at war for ten years, you dont go around claiming to be a sailor or a marine when you havent. Its about honor, courage, commitment. Qualities this turd doesnt posses. Just because he was or is a drug addict doesnt make excuses for his current behavior. He didnt have to try and steal valor, or make up wild and crazy stories to become a productive member of society, he chose to do that no one forced him. I agree with you Joy is a great lawyer and person and Im surprised someone with her expierience and intelligence was so easily fooled by this guys bullshit. Im no expert, but I was a Marine, a cop, and finally a Fed. Im no one special by any means but this guys stories stink of lies and mistruths. The Marine unit he claimed to be in never even deployed to Bosnia. What an idiot!! Bottom line is this guy is a TURD of the first degree, and he better not show his face in his old nieghborhood. He just might get his jaw broke

@12rrtt I agree the lies are a "sin" if you will. I'm sure Joy knew of his past and also realized he had become a changed man. I don't buy the story, that she did a background check found nothing and this was news to her. Despite the fact, she loved the guy she knew and for good reasons. I don't agree with the lies about his past, but do understand how a 3x felon would need to create a fictitious past to have a decent livelihood and to have a decent life.

Did he disgrace the LE and military, probably, is that bad, yes. Could he have made up a different past and say he was something else yes, but so what. There are people with no criminal record who are vets or are former LE, who have never lied, and many will never come close to doing the good deeds this guy has. I still stand by his side. Cowboy up now, and get on with his life, and go back to doing the good deeds he has been engaged in for years.

I again challenge ANYONE to look for a job, and admit you have been convicted in the past, 20 or so years ago as a felon not just 1x not just 2x, but 3x. try and find work even at McDonalds.

He did not disclose to the court his past and was kicked off the case. That is the only thing that he currently did wrong. His past is the courts business, he did nothing illegal since 1996. No one else not connected with that law case he was kicked off should care.

The people who do care want to crucify the guy because human nature is to bring others down to make ourselves look good. The others who care were and or are friends of Mr. Johnson, and are possibly surprised. I heard all the lies, and thought they were fabricated or blown up. I never cared. But now I know why he made up a past.

I have my own checkered past, and would be embarrassed if it came to light as well. And as a former Vet myself, I know many who were honorably discharged that have disgraced the uniform, but when you live in a killing zone, and act inappropriately, I hate it, but also understand. If only we could stand in others shoes.

mr. Johnson should come completely clean and then get back to work being the great investigator, and advocate that he is and has been. He needs to move on, and so does this article and those of us posting.

He did the time and paid the price of his crimes and that all ended in 1996. It would be one thing if he was a fugitive. He is not, and has not been as far as we know. There is no crime hear other than peoples feelings being hurt, and people who know the great man named Jameson Johnson now as another person, with another name, and a past that again he paid the fine, and did his time.

Pistone and Dobyns were never convicted felons with a criminal and embarrassing past that they needed to put in the past to get on with their lives. Your comparison of Johnson to these two men is comparing apples to oranges. They NEVER HAD TO DEAL WITH REHABILITATING A BAD PAST, however these felons have http://www.360degrees.org/cgi-...

Mr. Jameson did wrong, but he deserves to be able to live his life as who he wants as long as he is no longer committing any crimes. We don't know his past as to why the need to steal, in the past. etc.

I have been on the streets with no job, no money, no food, no shelter, and no job opportunities. Everywhere you look to try to make it, you are turned down because of being a past felon. You do what you need to do to survive... not a lot different than a vet killing innocent civilians against orders because you fear for your life, and your country asks you to defend it with your hands tied and BS rules of engagement. Both have in common very difficult ethical dilemmas.

Until I walk in a mans shoes I will hold back ultimate judgement

First they are not "allegations" he's been CONVICTED!!!! Once you been convicted it is no longer an ALLEGATION. It's not about making a mistake, it's about the fact that he committed a violent crime/s. Imagine if you were lied to for 5 years and stories he told you that he was a cop in Philly, a war veteran, he was shot in the calf, he served in wars, he was a rescue swimmer in the NAVY...there's probably more. Yes, we all make mistakes and are not PERFECT. But where do you draw the line? When do we hold people accountable? When is it OK to lie and not lie? When can I lie to you and it's OK? IF JAMESON TOLD ME THE TRUTH AT THE VERY BEGINNING I WOULD RESPECT HIM MORE! BUT HE KEPT LYING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND BROKE MANY HEARTS AND RESPECT! It is easy to say that we should forgive him, but he was the one who made the decision many years ago...NOT ME and NOT HIS FAMILY and FRIENDS and LOVED ONES. We did not lie to him, HE LIED TO US! We took him into the family and he was the one who screwed us over!!!

Having known JJ since kindergarten, I feel you all should understand that there is more to this than just self - empowerment. I can easily see why he would fashion a new history for himself, and in turn a new life: most of us would have never made it through what he did. He had a very difficult childhood, grew up hard and fast. The only support (or any reason to live at all) he had was from my family. There are very few pictures from that era of my family that do not include JJ. He was a good person then and is a good person now. That mugshot from 1996 CLEARLY indicates a drug problem, and if I had lived his life I would be, at the VERY least, addicted to drugs. I don't think what he has done here is right, but there is an explanation for it.

If you are a vet of Desert Storm than you and I share a precious, most sacred brotherhood that cannot be infringed upon by any fraudster. Any vet should be irate at this guy. I am a former Marine, and I refuse to put up with some clown saying he was one when he wasnt and how he is some hero for getting shot in the calf in Bosnia. Does he think I am stupid?? He doesnt even have a scar on his calf?? I know I know he had great doctors right?? I was born and raised in NYC, I was at the trade center on 9/11, I lost over 20 of my very close friends (I grew up in a FDNY/NYPD family). I worked on that piled of death for months finding my deceased friends, and desperately trying to find the ones we never wopund up recovering because they were vaporized. I've been in law enforcement most of my adult life after exiting the military. I'm not anymore, it took a heavy toll on me, and I'm off to better things now. I've been there and done all that, I dont need to brag about it. The true warriors, heroes, whatever are by and large quiet, consumate professionals. J.J. or as I refer to him Convict, brought all this down on himself, he told outlandish stories that werent his to tell, stole valor, and has no understanding of the Marine Corps core values of honor,courage,commitment. He also quite possibly ruined a good lawyers career in the process, I know Joy, I've been in court with her on the other side of the table, shes passionate, shes good. But surely her reputation will be tarnished by this thoughtless turd. How stupid could he be?? Being an outspoken opponent of Arpaio, mouthing off to the Deputy U.S. Marshal (who is a close friend of mine) who arrested Lapre?? Did he not think anyone would run NCIC or background checks on him?? If he was really an undercover Fed, Marine, Fireman, Doctor, Lawyer or whatever else he has claimed he should have known better to keep his mouth shut. I have zero sympathy for this guy. ZERO.

12rrtt
12rrtt

doesnt matter, he stole the valor of brave men and women who have fought and died for this country and that is unnacceptable. making a new life for youself is one thing. Lying about being an undercover federal agent, cop fireman, soldier, airman, sailor, or marine is not. he never did any of that, he conned trusting people into believing something he was not. if he was just honest maybe it would be different. but he lies about being a part of a brave and honorable brotherhood, which he clearly is not. instead he cooses to run and now hide. fucking punk.

Well, that is certainly the response I would have given as well, having served in Desert Storm; but, having known him back in the day, I just wanted to point out that fact. Take it as you will, I understand. He has done good things there, for many, and just hope to see him remembered for all of that, not JUST this. My heart does go out to Joy, I truly hope this does not affect her career. Is it just me, or does this seem like the biggest "call-out" ever? Kinda, well, unnecessary?

As a former fed, and local detective my B.S. meter was redlining. He also told me he was a fireman, and a Navy SEAL. Anyone with any L.E. or military background could immeditately tell he was full of shyte. He's nothing more than a three time felon, what a turd. J.J. if you are reading this EFFF YOU! Slimy fat punk. Oh and he also felt the need to insert himself into the story of the murder of Glendale Police Officer Anthony Holly. J.J. is a media whore who seeks to scam trusting people. Karma will catch up to him, it's a matter of time. This fat prick couldnt hack it in the Salvation Army let alone the U.S. Navy.

But, since I've read it now... Doesn't read like this guy Jameson did anything illegal. He's an ass for lying and hurting the people around him, and for that he'll lose work. But I don't think Joy should pay any price. She sounds like as much a victim as the courts.

I love it. It's great when liberals are exposed like this. Keep it up.

Just sad, if there is good work being done by the firm, who cares? Show me a firm that isn't a little corrupt.

First they are not "allegations" he's been CONVICTED!!!! Once you been convicted it is no longer an ALLEGATION. It's not about making a mistake, it's about the fact that he committed a violent crime/s. Imagine if you were lied to for 5 years and stories he told you that he was a cop in Philly, a war veteran, he was shot in the calf, he served in wars, he was a rescue swimmer in the NAVY...there's probably more. Yes, we all make mistakes and are not PERFECT. But where do you draw the line? When do we hold people accountable? When is it OK to lie and not lie? When can I lie to you and it's OK? IF JAMESON TOLD ME THE TRUTH AT THE VERY BEGINNING I WOULD RESPECT HIM MORE! BUT HE KEPT LYING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND BROKE MANY HEARTS AND RESPECT! It is easy to say that we should forgive him, but he was the one who made the decision many years ago...NOT ME and NOT HIS FAMILY and FRIENDS and LOVED ONES. We did not lie to him, HE LIED TO US! We took him into the family and he was the one who screwed us over!!!
