the sentencing memorandum indicates, these actions were widespread
crimes committed by these defendants is of a breadth and scope
previously unheard of. No building, office, desk, or file
was safe from their snooping and prying. No individual or
organization was free from their despicable conspiratorial
tools of their trade were miniature transmitters, lock picks,
secret codes, forged credentials, and any other device they
found necessary to carry out their conspiratorial schemes.
is interesting to note that the founder of their organization,
unindicted co-conspirator L. Ron Hubbard, wrote in his dictionary
entitled Modern Management Technology Defined ... that 'truth
is what is true for you.' Thus, with the founder's blessings
they could wantonly commit perjury as long as it was in the
interest of Scientology.
defendants rewarded criminal activities that ended in success
and sternly rebuked those that failed. The standards of human
conduct embodied in such practices represent no less than
the absolute perversion of any known ethical value system.
view of this, it defies the imagination that these defendants
have the unmitigated audacity to seek to defend their actions
in the name of 'religion.'
these defendants now attempt to hide behind the sacred principles

stand that she and her codefendants, including these two defendants,

Scientology claimed to have cleaned house since the Snow White convictions,
kicking out all these perpetrators, in fact that is not the case.
Moxon worked in Scientologys legal office at that time
and was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator for providing
false handwriting samples to the FBI. Today Moxon is Scientologys
lead in-house attorney.
Sue Hubbard, head of the Guardians Office at the time
of the raid, is still listed as a Patron of Scientology (a
member who has donated a large amount of funds).
Heldt, Deputy Guardian for the United States (DG US), is listed
in Scientology publications as a major contributor and having taken
