Mark Myhre - Crown Counsel, BC Prosecution Service
BC Prosecution Service
Gosh, what can we say about Mark Myhre? Well, let's not beat around the bush. Let's get right down to it. Mark Myhre is a sleazy, slimy, despicable, horrible excuse for a human being.
Mark Myhre was the prosecutor for the trial and sentencing in the R. v. Fox case against Patrick Fox (the creator of this website). He's also the prosecutor for the probation hearings every time Patrick tries to get the ridiculous prohibition on leaving BC removed. That monotonous, dry, flat voice you hear in all those recordings of the court proceedings - the one that's like vocal Prozac - that's Myhre.
It's my understanding Mark Myhre graduated from the University of Toronto...but you know what? Nobody gives a shit. Anybody reading this probably doesn't give a flying fuck where Myhre went to school. Let's get to the juicy shit.
Myhre Colludes with Lagemaat to Suppress Evidence and Offer Perjured Testimony
Myhre colluded with defense counsel Tony Lagemaat prior to, and during the trial, to suppress evidence; to not cross examine Desiree on many critical points; to allow Desiree to commit perjury, extensively, and not confront her with the proof she was lying or to inform the court or the jury that they had reason to believe she was lying; and most importantly, to not bring up anything which would make the Crown or the RCMP look bad. But fuck, don't take our word for it, look at Patrick's affidavit in support of his claims of ineffective assistance and collusion. That affidavit contains extensive proof that Lagemaat and Myhre knew Desiree was committing perjury - either that or they're both dumb as fucking rocks. Also, look at the transcripts of Capuano's testimony. It is obvious that Lagemaat frequently should have pursued lines of questioning further, but would stop just as Desiree was about to screw herself, and he'd change the line of questioning. Again, he was either colluding with Myhre or he's just the dumbest person to ever become a lawyer.
Myhre Refuses to Disclose Critical Evidence to Patrick
Prior to the trial, Myhre adamantly refused to disclose to Patrick, a copy of the recording of the July 13, 2016 RCMP interview with Desiree - the one where she's laughing and joking. Myhre knew that if that recording got out then every sane person in the world would know that Desiree was lying and faking and that the RCMP and the Crown knew (how could they not?). Little did Myhre know, Patrick had a copy of that recording all along. And that recording is now on this website (imagine that).
The best parts of this RCMP interview are in the last hour (about 50 minutes in). That's where Desiree let her guard down and started showing how seriously she really took all of this.
Myhre Betrays Lagemaat
When Lagemaat finished his cross examination of Desiree, having not confronted her about that RCMP interview, Patrick raised the issue with the court. Patrick insisted it was critical for the jury to hear what Desiree really thought of all the shit she was pretending to cry about on the witness stand. The court agreed it seemed to have some relevance and questioned Lagemaat on why he thought it didn't. Lagemaat squirmed and stuttered with some bullshit...well, ah, fuck it, just listen to it for yourself for Christ's sake: And what does that slimy bastard, Mark Myhre, do? Throws Lagemaat right the fuck under the bus, that's what! Listen here: What a sweetheart!
Myhre Admits He Knows Desiree is Lying
Myhre has admitted that he knows Desiree was lying, he'd told Patrick before the trial that if Patrick just took down this website then all this (the criminal harassment charges) could just go away. Yes, Myhre is a dispicable asshole. And, unfortunately, he's an asshole with the power to put people in jail.
One time, after Patrick finished serving his sentence and was trying to get the probation conditions changed, he was speaking with Myhre outside the courthouse. Patrick pointed out that all the proof that Desiree had committed perjury, and that Myhre and Lagemaat knew about it, is clearly detailed in Patrick's affidavit in support of his appeal. Myhre had the audacity to claim that he believed Desiree was telling the truth! Can you believe that? What a fuckwad!
Myhre Refuses to Testify
In October 2019 Patrick requested Myhre testify at another trial for bullshit charges of probation violations which the BC Prosecution Service brought against him. Specifically, it was Myhre that initiated the charges. Myhre refused. Patrick sought a subpoena for Myhre's testimony. You see, at the sentencing in the criminal harassment case, Myhre had stated on the record, in open court, that if Patrick were to be removed or told to leave Canada by CBSA or IRCC, then he would "obviously" not prosecute Patrick for violating the condition not to leave BC. So, in March 2019, Patrick turned himself in to CBSA at the Douglas border crossing because CBSA is legally required to not allow him to leave the port of entry and return to Canada (Patrick is inadmissible, you know, based on being a criminal alien due to the criminal harassment conviction). CBSA told Patrick he was inadmissible and could not return to Canada. He was, effectively, removed by CBSA.
Well, even though Patrick caused exactly the circumstances under which Myhre stated he would not prosecute, what does that slippery bitch do? Get's a warrant for Patrick's arrest for leaving BC without permission. DHS sends Patrick back to Canada and Patrick spends 17 months in jail fighting that charge.
So, Patrick wanted Myhre to testify about him agreeing not prosecute if he were removed by CBSA. Myhre refused. Patrick sought a subpoena from the court. Myhre had some other greasy BC Prosecution Service lawyer appear at the subpoena hearing on his behalf. The BC Prosecution Service lawyer (and Crown Counsel Bernie Wolfe) argued that Myhre's statements were not relevant. The subpoena application was denied (of course).
You see, slimy, sleazy, greasy, despicable. All appropriate adjectives for Mr. Myhre.
Anyway, consider this: With all the claims and allegations I'm making about Myhre and Lagemaat on this website; with all the times I've raised these same claims in court; not once has Myhre, or Lagemaat, or anyone else EVER denied the allegations! Not once have they ever even suggested or hinted at the possibility of a defamation suit, or even tried to get any kind of cease and desist order. You know why? Because it's all true, and they, and all their colleagues, and all the judges, know it's true. And the last thing any of them want is anything that will draw more attention to the bullshit corruption that is the norm in their little fiefdom they call the justice system!
Come on, Myhre, you panzy bitch, sue me for defamation. I, fucking, dare you. Let's get all these claims of collusion and complicity in Capuano's perjury and wrongful prosecution, in front of a jury and let's see how that goes.
