DOTHAN: In a article broken by Ken Curtis of WTVY - TV 4, if and when the person is arrested after the investigation is completed, could have major implications on lives of many people.
Recently a lady went to get married. As she pursued getting divorce papers from the court system, of which she paid a Paralegal with a law firm to file, she found the papers did not exist.
That led her to Houston County Circuit Clerk Carla Woodall. The papers could not be found in the court system.
The lady produced documents which led Circuit Clerk Carla Woodall to investigate further. At which point Dothan Police Criminal Investigators were brought into the matter. And a criminal case was initiated.
Dothan Police met with District and Circuit Judges of the 20th Judicial Circuit. Then search warrants were obtained on the law firm office and the Paralegal's residence which is in Chapelwood off Flowers Chapel Road in Dothan.
NOTE: The attorney is not implicated in this issue. A paralegal in his office has alleged to have been scamming on divorce papers and never filing them with the court. The attorney was not aware of this Paralegal's actions and was done without his knowledge or consent.
The copy of the divorce papers produced by the lady who "thought" they were filed actually contained the Houston County Circuit Clerk's stamp which is on papers filed in the Circuit Clerk's Office. The papers also contained the signature of 20th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Larry Anderson.
Neither Circuit Clerk Carla Woodall or 20th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Larry Anderson were aware of these papers or the court filing. No such papers existed in the 20th Judicial Circuit ( Houston County ) court system.
CASE WILL BE PRESENTED TO A HOUSTON COUNTY GRAND JURY
This case could have major implications. The lady who "was" preparing to get married has actually now found out that she is still married. In Alabama it is against the law to have more than one wife.
She thought she had a X-husband but now he is "her husband". He has moved out of state and remarried. Which means he now has "two" wives. Well, what about the property he and his first wife had? Bought jointly but separated in what they thought was the divorce.
But what about the property he and his other wife has purchased jointly. Do not know the ages of the man and woman, but what if he and his wife ( but not legally his wife because he is married ) has had children.
The decision, as we understand, is this case will be presented to a Houston County Grand Jury. Which consists of 18 people which meet in secret to hear testimony. The reason to present to a Grand Jury rather than the Circuit Clerk issue an arrest warrant. Real simple.
The Houston County Circuit Clerk and 20th Judicial Circuit Judge Larry Anderson are now "victims". The Magistrates which issues arrest warrants are under Circuit Clerk Carla Woodall. In order to preserve the integrity of the case the decision was made to let a Houston County Grand Jury hear the testimony and make a determination on criminal charges.
The suspect in this case is Diane Collins, AKA Diane Clayton, AKA other names. And she has been accused of affairs with married men of which she has children with and broke up marriages.
Diane Collins, AKA Diane Clayton, AKA other names also spread viscous lies on employees of the law firm and caused those employees to be terminated over lies. And those lies included former 20th Judicial Circuit District Attorney Doug Valeska.
She is very powerful and convincing to others and pulled the wool over a very prominent Dothan Attorney that has now retired. And those lies caused him to lose friendships and fire innocent people over this employees lies and deception.
Dothan Police or the Houston County Court System has not issued any statements at this time because this is a pending investigation.
But if you have ever met this female you need to verify through the court system the legal action you thought took place actually did take place.
