The Grand Jurors, on their oath, aver, depose, and verify that on or about the 29th day of May, 2014, the defendant, Martha Elizabeth Grist, also known as Marty Tackitt-Grist, also known as Marty Grist, also known as Martina Walking Stick, did fraudulently, maliciously, devilishly, with specific intent to deceive the Court, and against the peace and dignity of the State of North Carolina, commit the felonious crime of perjury, in the following manner and form, to wit:
C O U N T O N E
That the defendant, Martha Elizabeth Grist, having first been duly sworn on the Bible by the Clerk’s deputy to testify truthfully as prosecuting witness in the matter, State of North Carolina vs. James L. Smith, 13 CR 058245, Buncombe County, defendant Grist testified under oath as follows:
Question: You went in before a clerk sometime in the spring of 2012 and said you had mail to see, from me, lots of it, which was in violation of the restraining order which was in place. Those were your words. You remember that?
Martha Grist: Yes, I did.
Question: All right.
Martha Grist: To my knowledge those were…
Question: But you didn’t show up to pursue it, did you, even after you got the show-cause order against me and then forced me to have to show up in court to defend myself?
Martha Grist: Can I address that?
Question: You didn’t even show up, did you?
The Court: The question ma’am is “Did you show up in court to prosecute, YES or NO?”
Martha Grist: I did not.
The Court: Now you may explain.
Martha Grist: Because when this first started I had never been to court. My background is mediation. I didn’t understand the court procedure.
That the testimony of the defendant Grist was a material misstatement of fact uttered by Martha Elizabeth Grist, and then known by defendant Grist to be false. The defendant had been a party, witness, and participant many times in court proceedings both in New Hanover County, NC and in Buncombe County, NC at least since 1993, and although defendant had failed on several occasions since 1993 to appear in court when under subpoena, she knew she was required by law to be in court on dates specified in subpoenas served on her. The defendant additionally testified to a material fact which was false and deceitful when she stated to the Court, “My background is mediation.”
C O U N T T W O
The averments of Count One of this Indictment are incorporated by reference as if stated herein verbatim. On the date and in the courtroom before the Honorable David K. Fox presiding, and Assistant District Attorney Nicholas Benjamin and Assistant District Attorney Meghan Lock representing the State of North Carolina, as aforesaid, the defendant, Martha Elizabeth Grist, testified falsely under oath as follows:
Mr. Benjamin: Do you have a blog?
Martha Grist: No
Mr. Benjamin: Do you get online and write about Mr. Smith?
Martha Grist: Absolutely never have, not even once.
That at the time the aforesaid material statement of fact was made under oath by Martha Grist, she then well knew that the statement was false in that:
On the contrary, on December 31, 2013, at 8:58 a. m., the defendant had composed, and shortly thereafter edited, and published the following online material on Facebook at the site of ABC News 20/20’s “Neighbors from Hell” owned by Mr. Bob Borzotta:
Marty Tackitt-Grist Hey, I have got one for the books! My neighbor is a true psychopath. He hits on nearly every question on the assessment tools for psychopaths/sociopaths. He has barked like a dog for hours at me, just to get the next door neighbor’s plot hound to bark and harass me. While out in my yard he has called me names, used mentally challenged adults (that his girlfriend gets paid to take care of) to verbally harass me at a neighborhood store, harasses and stalks my guests, etc. He posts volumes of humiliating hate and lies on the internet, in addition to all the neighbor antics. He has hacked into phones, including state business and confidential calls, computers, published personal info, including phone numbers that were supposed to be private and blocked. He has tried to cause me (a North Carolina teacher f/t blind) and many others to lose their jobs by reporting false information. He has reported me to every city, state and county service with false complaints. He is a disbarred attorney, who embezzled from his clients, and hasn’t practiced in 35 years. He loves to be the center of attention,and even though he has been found guilty in civil and criminal court, he still uses the court system to harass the local police, judges, attorneys, city council members…you name it and he’s thought of it. He sends me mail constantly that spews more hate and lies. He has mooned my neighbors and friends. No end in sight. My attorney and the DA have stacks of proof, pictures and videos from my security camera. Also, witness lists. He has most recently managed to get his girlfriend, also the owner of the house he lives in, to replicate many of his behaviors, making it even worse! This page, and the 20/20 stories, are supportive, because now I know that I am not alone in this unbelievable nightmare from hell!!! [End of Marty Tackitt-Grist Quote]

Now focus on the claim made by Martha that Freddie Grist caused their 6-year-old daughter Rose to be kept awake by calling every night. This is typical perjury. If she didn’t want her daughter to be awakened and upset, she could have simply turned the phone’s bell off, or disconnected the phone, or put it in a place where the daughter did not hear it ring. But the more plausible explanation is that the daughter’s sleep disruption was a lie. And a lie made under oath.
I talked to Freddie once, and he told me that Martha had come from a family in Oklahoma City. “They have a history of mental problems and trouble with the police,” he said.
This woman, Martha Grist, is a veritable fountain of perjury. In my previous blog (sabotaged by iPage) I recounted an occasion in which Martha followed me into the nearby Ingles Market on Tunnel Rd. (where there are security cameras everywhere, and above every aisle) and quickly walked from aisle to aisle looking for me – as someone watched from a large window outside the store. As soon as she found me and a lady I was with who had Down’s Syndrome, she slowly walked by us making silly little “farting” noises with her mouth and sticking her tongue out at us. The disabled lady was entertaining herself in one of those electric-powered scooters provided for customers, and it never dawned on her what was going on. I doubt if she even noticed it. And yet Martha went the next day or so to the courthouse and filed papers that both of us had harassed her in the grocery store. That’s the kind of vicious liar that she is.
So I went to the management at Ingles and asked them how long they kept their videos. One month, they said. So I sought to subpoena that evidence and show what this evil woman was doing, and I was blocked by obstruction after obstruction in the courthouse, first from the crooked clerk, Steven Cogburn, then from crooked judge Eddie Clontz, and next by crooked judge Julie Kepple. And the next thing Clontz did was to employ a corrupt ruse and shitcan my written interrogatories and requests for admissions propounded to Grist. I intended to prove with the videos from Ingles security cameras that I did not stalk her. She was stalking me. So what corrupt judge Eddie Clontz did was to pervert the course of justice and commit a series of felonies.
One of the managers at Ingles had even reviewed the videos showing that Grist came into Ingles and was searching for me by going from aisles to aisle and looking down the aisles… and then having found me she deliberately walked by me on the cereal aisle, as she was being observed.
I asked to buy that footage, but the Ingles manager with whom I spoke said they had to have an order from the court. This fatal interference, of course, was an obstruction of justice by Grist and her sleazy judge pals, and a conspiracy to obstruct justice, which is also the felony crime of racketeering. That’s a common story of the Buncombe County Courthouse, a nest of criminal racketeers more venomous than pit vipers. Machine politics of dirty rotten democrats run Buncombe County.
Because of this evil, vindictive woman, Martha Grist acting as their shill and useful idiot, I was forced to appear and waste hundreds of hours in court 29 times under threat of arrest.
She obtained two frivolous and malicious restraining orders against me, three orders to appear and show cause why I should not be jailed for contempt of court, and two cyberstalking warrants. She made so many frivolous and malicious 911 calls to police that I lost count, and finally the police began filing reports “UNFOUNDED.” As I pushed 70 years of age and frail health, Grist dragged me through court over and over and over again with frivolous and malicious cyberstalking warrants, both of which were dismissed after forcing me to sit for hours and hours with my deteriorating scoliotic spine and intervertebral disc disease.
And finally the judges had been so labored and overburdened and so harassed by this venomous woman, that the last time she tried for another show-cause order, her fourth, Julie Kepple (even as crooked and as nasty a man-hating radfem as this robed shyster was) turned Marty Grist down and sent her packing. Not one time was she ever able to prove me in contempt of court, not once. Because I never was. Every claim she made under oath was founded on perjury, hatred, revenge, and conniving with corrupt public officials.
