Hundreds of letters have been sent directly to Judge Keeton, the US Attorney, the Probation Officer and even to the President of the United States by concerned citizens on behalf of John Sweeney and his upcoming sentencing to Federal prison.
SENTENCING DATE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1999 at 10:00AM in the Federal Courthouse at One Courthouse Way, Boston, MA in Judge Robert E. Keeton's courtroom.
The US Attorney requested a continuance of the sentencing date and Judge Keeton granted the new date above for the government.
Rhetta & John Sweeney broadcast again on nationwide radio for over an hour concerning "How the FDIC is Benefiting from Known Banking Fraud". More coming.... Stay Tuned!
Sentencing date was set for Monday, August 2, 1999 after Judge Keeton declares Sweeney "Guilty" in a 32 page written opinion.
Sweeney's closing statement quotes Scripture: John 12:38-41
This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet:
"Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
For this reason they could not believe, because , as Isaiah says elsewhere:
He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn---and I would heal them."
Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory and spoke about him.
"THANKS BE TO GOD".
In direct violation of the Unites States Constitution, John Sweeney was denied his right to a jury trial.
His lawyer said" In my 25 years of practice in this court I have never had a person denied their right to a Jury Trial".
The Trial was conducted in only three days. 10 witnesses for the Government only 2 witnesses allowed for Sweeney. One day later a 32 page opinion of GUILT was issued by the Judge.
Sweeneys file documents in Federal Court to have ALL of their property returned.

SWEENEYS DEMAND ANSWERS FROM CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEES:
See: Senate Banking and Judiciary Committee.
See: House Banking and Judiciary Committee.
1. FDIC Cover up of known fraud.
2. FDIC use of Federal Marshals to silence Sweeneys.
3. BEHAVIOR of Federal Judge protecting a lawyer colleague.
"WHISTLEBLOWER" efforts concerning "Cost to the
Taxpayers" have been reported by the Sweeneys to both
U.S. Senate and U.S. House Regulatory Committees
and to the Press.
Freedom of Information (FOIA) Reports and other documents now reveal new facts and evidence and huge legal fees paid by the FDIC/RTC to three Boston law firms costing the taxpayer millions.
Incredibly, legal fees have been paid by taxpayer dollars after the Sweeneys were awarded a $4 million judgment in State Court which found that ComFed Bank had committed "unfair and deceptive trade practices" against them.
The COVER-UP of the Sweeney 45 page judgment and current FDIC abuse is costing the taxpayer millions. Please help our"WHISTLEBLOWER" efforts by contacting your Congressional Representatives and tell them "We support the Sweeneys and we are watching."
PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN: At the suggestion of many supporters a
"Sweeney Support Fund" has been opened up to help with the mounting legal,
operational and now living expenses. Mail is being picked up daily and can be sent to:
Sweeney Support Fund,
