My criminal complaint, as submitted to the Sauk Co. Sheriff.

From: allen venden

To: Sauk Co. Sheriff's Dept.

This is a “Complaint of Criminal Misconduct” as such it is intended for the hands of those responsible for detecting and preventing crime and enforcing the law.

On November 30, 2004 Gwendolyn Klay, Sauk-Prairie Police Detective Froese and Sauk County corrections Agent Robert Foght conspired together and carried out a plan to steal thousands of dollars worth of cash and property by performing an illegal and unjustified eviction.

This crime began when Gwendolyn Klay stoled two of my paychecks and my car. She then went to the Sauk-Prairie Police Dept. and asked Detective Froese to prevent me from entering my home. She gave no reason and she had no complaints or accusations. Gwendolyn simply asked Detective Froese to illegally prevent me from entering my home without any cause or justification. Detective Froese was well aware Gwendolyn was asking him to break the law, so he chose not to do it on his own. Instead he called Sauk Co. Agent Robert Foght to perform an unjustified and illegal eviction.

This is when they came up with their bizarre plan. They would simply pretend that I never lived in my home, that I was in fact trespassing in my own home. Gwendolyn was sent to get a harassment TRO based on the false trespassing claim. Agent Foght sent out illegal “Mandatory Orders to Detain” to be used if I was found on the property, and fabricated false documentation that supported their fraudulent trespassing claim.

This is how they stoled thousands of dollars worth of my property in addition to my car and about $950 cash that Gwendolyn had stolen originally. To this day if you ask the Sauk-Prairie Police about this, they will tell you I never lived there. This of course, is a bold face lie! Other lies being told by Robert Foght and the Sauk-Prairie Police to cover up this crime include:

Gwendolyn and I had broken up broken up 9 months prior.

I lived in the basement and didn't pay any rent..

Gwendolyn had told me to move out and I had refused.

These examples and every other claim made by Robert Foght and the Sauk-Prairie Police can be proven to be the exact opposite of the truth. The record also proves it was Robert Foght, not Gwendolyn, who fabricated these lies.

What happened next further proves Gwendolyn, Robert Foght and Detective Froese were acting with criminal intent and malice. Gwendolyn mistakenly filed for a domestic abuse TRO instead of the planed trespassing TRO. At the hearing she testified that Agent Foght had expressed his displeasure, in effect scolding her for not sticking to “the plan”. Under oath Gwendolyn was unable to give the judge a single example of me ever doing anything the court considered “abusive” or even inappropriate. The case was quickly tossed out by the judge. I have Robert Foght's documents, where he wrote that he knew the complaint was a mistake, yet he felt it necessary to sprinkle his fraudulent trespassing documentation with abusive undertones, and threatened me with false stalking charges if I attempted to recover my stolen property.

I've recently uncovered police and correction records that prove Gwendolyn, Agent Foght and Detective Froese acted with criminal intent and malice when they fabricated false documentation to cover up the theft of my cash and property. The record also shows all relevant policies and procedures were violated and a judges ruling ignored. Their actions were completely arbitrary and not based any law, rule, supervision condition, inappropriate action, complaint or accusation. In other words their actions had nothing to do with their authority as a police detective or a corrections agent. They simply chose to help Gwendolyn commit a crime. The fact that all of their justification can be proven false, proves no actual justification existed.

I believe the documentation I've accumulated is more then adequate “probable cause”, to justify an investigation into the felony theft of my money and property by Gwendolyn Klay and Robert Foght, and that Robert Foght committed this crime at the request of Sauk-Prairie Police Detective Froese, making Froese an accessory prior to the fact. A proper investigation would also reveal that Gwendolyn Klay, Robert Foght and Detective Froese knew that I lived at 630 Water St. in Sauk City. and they chose to make the false trespassing claim, being fully aware that this course of action required denying me access to my belongings and allowing Gwendolyn Klay to retain my cash and thousands of dollars worth of my property under false pretenses. The record also shows Gwendolyn willingly participated in this Fraud and that Robert Foght and Detective Froese acted with criminal intent and malice.

At this point, nobody is disputing that my money and property was stolen from me, and there are no longer any valid claims that I somehow did something that justified this theft. The only reason this crime hasn't yet been investigated is because a police officer and a corrections agent were involved. There is no question that the law was broken, the only question is whether or not the law exist! The fact that this crime was committed by government officials, makes it even more serious, not less serious. If an American is not safe in their own home, then action needs to be taken to correct this issue. There can be little doubt that this happened to me solely because of where I lived. I'm asking the Sauk Co. Sheriff's Dept. to enforce the existing laws and not allow our public officials to steal from the people of this jurisdiction.

This is no longer a case of “my word against their's”, I've accumulated police reports, court records and correction records that support my claims. With this documentation and Gwendolyn's sworn testimony from Sauk Co. case number 2004CV000681, I believe I have sufficient proof to lead to the criminal convictions of Gwendolyn Klay, Robert Foght and Sauk-Prairie Police Detective Froese, for the felony theft of my money and property. I'm asking this department to examine this documentation and objectively conduct a proper investigation.

To obtain my documentation and a list of witnesses, please feel free to contact me.

    Hi, Al...first of all you should be filing a formal complaint with the Sauk County District Attorney's office. They are the ones that have the authority to investigate this further.
    Second of all, from my understanding, you were given several opportunities to collect your personal items with police and your parole officer. The car which you used, was registered in Gwen's name. By law, that makes the car hers. the man that bought it for $100.00 says her name was on the title. and it only ran for about 2 weeks. Some of the items left behind by you were given as payment for work. Gwen instead of paying cash, gave your items as payment. I don't know why or how Detective Froese handled this situation, but I too have had a situation with him and reported it to his superiors. So I know first hand he is evil in his own way. And as far as Gwen goes, she is very manipulative, uses people, esp. men. some of the things that happened to you have happened to another man. She stole his paycheck, did not pay for contracted work, took the key after rent was paid to her, took personal items from him and ruined his computer. She has mental problems. She has fits when things do not go her way. Like, a blade of grass was brought into the house! She put all your stuff in the basement to appear like you and her were not together. She doesn't want to sleep with a man or be close to one. she's totally weird that way. She also is very dishonest and stole a brand new computer from an employer in Cross Plains. I hope the DA does a complete investigation and I feel Gwen should be held responsible for your items and your money. You probably did not sign a formal lease so they did not follow eviction rules. However, if you recieved mail at that address or have a witness that you lived there more than 30 days, you are a resident. Keep us posted. If the police are liable, they too should have to pay. But I truly could see they could be sucked up by Gwen's manipulative ways.

    Well hey cooljudge1,
    I wish you really were a Sauk County judge!

    First of all who told you I was on “parole”? Wisconsin doesn't even have parole anymore.

    As far as retrieving my stolen property goes, other than grabbing an armful of clothes I was never allowed back in my home. I have records that show Robert Foght ordered the Sauk Prairie police and the Sauk County Sheriff's Dept. to arrest me if I tried to get my stuff. In the very same document Agent Foght also threatened to arrest me if I didn't collect my property. The plan was to put me in jail either way. I tried to get the Sauk Prairie Police to help but they refused, I have police reports that show I was turned away twice. I was able to avoid jail by transferring out of Agent Foght's jurisdiction. As soon as I had a car and a place to live, I asked to retrieve my stolen property, but was denied by agents Beverly Osborne and Valerie Rathkamp.

    The bigger point is, we don't live in a country where cops can throw people out of their homes without a court order. When they tried to get a court order under false pretenses, they lost. I won in court! A judge has already ruled on this matter. The problem is the authorities in Sauk County have refused to abide by this ruling. This isn't just against the law, it means in Sauk County there is no law!

    They actually stoled two cars from me, both were in my name, for Gwendolyn to have them titled in her name she would have had to forge my signature. I know during that same week she sold a third car that belonged to her son, I think that car was in her name.

    I did have a formal lease with Gwendolyn, we needed to show rental income to get our mortgage approved. Unfortunately my copy of this lease was stolen when they stoled everything else I owned, however Gwendolyn testified in court that a lease did exist and these transcripts are a public record, the bank should also have a copy on file. Both Robert Foght and the Sauk Prairie Police are intentionally lying when they claim there was no lease.

    It sounds like you know Gwendolyn very well, yes, a single blade of grass tracked into the house would surely cause one of her serious and often violent tantrums. I refused to deal with her when she was pitching one of these baby fits and would lock myself in the basement until she came to her senses, sometimes this would take a few days. Robert Foght twisted this fact into his fraudulent claim that I had been “kicked out to live in the basement”.

    Other then the occasional tantrum, me and Gwendolyn were actually very close. We lived together for six months in Cross Plains before we moved to Sauk City where we had lived for fourteen months. We went out together about every other night, when we didn't go out I'd usually make us a nice dinner then we'd kick back and watch a movie or something. Other then when I locked myself in the basement, we slept together every night. When I asked her to cash my paychecks, I had no reason to think anything was wrong, I kissed her goodbye and gave her a hug. That's when she decided to steal my money and went to the Detective Froese.

    I was never paid for the hundreds of hours I spent repairing and remodeling our home (not with money or merchandise) and I didn't expect to be, after all I was paying the mortgage, “it was my home too”, at least it was my home until the crooked cops of Sauk Co. stoled my money and property and ran me out of town for trespassing. (IN MY HOME!)

    It's sad to hear Gwendolyn is still out there stealing from people, if the police would have arrested her for stealing from me maybe the theft of that other guy's money and property could have been prevented. I hope this guy and anyone else she steals from all file criminal complaints. I'm having a hard time getting my complaints investigated because my case involves corrupt officials who falsified records and it's almost impossible to get crooked cops to investigate other crooked cops. At this point Patricia Barret, the Sauk County District Attorney refuses to even acknowledge that a theft occurred. The Sauk County Sheriff actually wrote me a letter that says his department is not capable of objectively investigating my complaints.

    I've posted scanned copies of all my records on my Myspace page, in my “pics” section.
