The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

Brett Kimberlin is a Pedophile

And Other News From the Rockville Courts Today

This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that Kimberlin has been harassing me for over a year, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

[Update: Please note that I have removed the first name of Ms. Kimberlin at her request and left only her first initial, “T.” She is, after all, a victim of sexual abuse and those kinds of reasonable requests will be honored.  While the moral right to privacy of rape victims is not absolute, it seems to be reasonably asserted here.]

By now you might have heard it from Robert Stacy McCain’s long post at Viral Read.  Or at American Power.  I witnessed much of what happened today (July 29), but I have not been able to sit down and write about it until now.

I am not going to sugar coat it, be coy or hold back in this.  I have spoken personally with his wife T. Kimberlin as I helped her prepare to do legal battle with her litigious husband Brett Kimberlin and I believe her.  There is too much smoke now, for there not to be a fire.  The story she told me did what I previously thought impossible: she lowered my opinion of Brett Kimberlin.

But she convinced me of the truth of the matter.  Brett Kimberlin is a pedophile.  He has lived his “teen dream” of “fucking a teenage girl.”  Indeed he has dreamed of girls who are not even teenagers.  And he needs to be stopped.

The basics of it is covered in a “Motion to Continue Protective Order Hearing” that was filed the afternoon.  You see, today there was supposed to be a final protective order hearing, where Brett was falsely accusing T. of presenting a danger to her own daughters.

But Brett’s presentation was less than impressive.  If you believe him—and really, dear reader, why should you?—at worst she slapped each daughter once and yelled some.  That seems to be within the zone of acceptable discipline for a parent to give their children.

T. had a plan to ask for a continuance to give her time to get a lawyer, but before she had a chance to speak to the judge or present her motion, the judge granted a continuance, but only of half the time she was hoping for.  So later that afternoon, she filed for the full time she was hoping for.  And yes, she allowed me to have a copy of it.

Now, normally in this situation, I would just dump the entire document into Scribd and be done with it, with a few redactions.  But frankly a great deal of it is very familiar to you and some of it is not very interesting and other parts are things she doesn’t want to put out on the internet and I want to respect her wishes.  I will say that unlike Brett Kimberlin, the well-being of her children always seems to be paramount for T. Kimberlin.  So I will only excerpt it, starting after a discussion of his criminal past in general, where she tells the court the following:

I met Brett Kimberlin when I was fourteen years old in Ukraine.  He transported me to Maryland when I was fifteen years old, for the purpose of enticing me into sex and marriage.  When in Maryland and while I was fifteen years old, he had vaginal intercourse and sexual contact with me on over fifty occasions.  He was over forty years of age at the time and therefore such conduct was in violation of Md. Criminal Law Code §3-307, constituting sexual offense in the third degree, then codified as Maryland Code Art. 27, §464B.

At the same time that Kimberlin was having sex with me literally every day, my cousin [T.V.] was also staying in his house.  She was twelve at this time.  I personally witnessed Brett Kimberlin attempt to seduce her, in violation of Maryland Criminal Law Code §3-310 and 3-312, constituting attempted rape in the second degree and attempted sexual offense in the second degree, respectively.

Moreover, he married me when I was sixteen years old.  However, instead of following the procedures set out in Md. Family Law Code §2-301, Brett Kimberlin forged a birth certificate for me, falsely asserting I was at least 18 years of age.  He used that forged document to obtain our marriage license.

Further, Brett Kimberlin has long been suspected of other sexual misconduct with underage girls.  In his book, Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin, veteran journalist Mark Singer wrote that Brett Kimberlin became romantically involved with a pre-pubescent girl Singer referred to as “Jessica” Barton (real name, Debbie):

For three consecutive summers, 1974 through 1976 [when the child was aged ten through fourteen], they took vacations of a week or longer in Disney World, Mexico, and Hawaii.  Sandi [her mother] couldn’t get time off from work, so on these summer trips it was just the two of them—Brett and Jessica.

Eyebrows levitated. A drug-dealing colleague had memories of conversations with Kimberlin that struck him as odd: “We’d see a girl who was pubescent or prepubescent, and Brett would get this smile and say, ‘Hey, what do you think? Isn’t she great?’ It made me very uncomfortable.”  Another recalled Kimberlin introducing Jessica as “my girlfriend,” and if irony was intended, it was too subtle to register.  To a coworker at IU-PUI, Sandi confided that Kimberlin was “grooming Jessica to be his wife.”

Page 78.  This girl was ten years old when they met, fourteen years old when Brett Kimberlin left her life.  It was believed by the police that ultimately it was his romantic love for this child that led him down the chain of decisions which culminated in the Speedway Bombings.

Indeed, I personally witnessed evidence that he had a sexual relationship with Debbie/”Jessica” Barton. He disclosed to me that she was his girlfriend and showed me pictures of them together.  In some of those pictures, Mr. Kimberlin was naked.  In others, Debbie Barton was naked.  Combined with my own experiences, and his attempts to seduce my then-twelve-year old cousin, I consider the suspicion that he had sex with this underage girl to be highly credible.

Indeed if you read over at Hogewash, you will get even more details of their courtship although the creep factor is set to around eleven.

The story goes like this.  The age of consent in Maryland is sixteen.  Then below that age, it works on a tier system.  Here, let me quote Md. Criminal Law Code §3-307 for you in relevant part:

(a) Prohibited. -- A person may not:...

(3) engage in sexual contact with another if the victim is under the age of 14 years, and the person performing the sexual contact is at least 4 years older than the victim;

(4) engage in a sexual act with another if the victim is 14 or 15 years old, and the person performing the sexual act is at least 21 years old; or

(5) engage in vaginal intercourse with another if the victim is 14 or 15 years old, and the person performing the act is at least 21 years old.

So the upshot here is that the age of complete freedom of consent is sixteen.  When T. was fifteen, and in Maryland, she could consent to sex but only if her partner was younger than twenty one, and Brett Kimberlin was in his forties in the relevant time period.

Her sixteenth birthday was on November 16, 1996.  If Kimberlin could have either 1) kept her out Maryland before that day, or 2) just kept his snake in its cage until that day, he wouldn’t be facing charges in Maryland, today.  But either he didn’t care about the law, or he couldn’t hold back, because he in fact brought her to Maryland in September of that year and then proceeded to have sex with her every single day.  So, conservatively speaking, we are talking over fifty separate acts.

As for her cousin, basically Brett Kimberlin was looking to have both of these young women.  I had heard of a lot of creepy behavior by Brett Kimberlin, but that gave me a fresh set of willies.

Already his defenders—who are almost certainly paid by Brett Kimberlin—are popping up and offering various claims that make him appear to be innocent or for her or others to be villains.

For one, Brett Kimberlin himself—writing under a bigoted pseudonym that we long since revealed is really him—posted a copy of a certificate for returning to Ukraine, which listed a birthdate of November 16, 1978.  Aha!  They said, this proves she was actually seventeen at the time of the sex!

Except even Brett Kimberlin knows this isn’t the case.  I have in my hands a copy of the petition for a protective order that Kimberlin filed against T.  Now, most of it, I will probably never publish, because this is a case of Kimberlin attempting to “dox” his own wife—that is putting damaging, false and indeed defamatory allegations against her into a public record so that some other internet thug will publish them.  I guarantee you that this will appear on one of Kimberlin’s hosted sites, if it hasn’t already, but it won’t appear here.

But I can show you an edited image of the last page, which provides various information about the person.  Do you see what I see?

(enlarge as necessary)

Bear in mind I have deleted from the image personal information like her current address, her current employer, and that employer’s address.  And I did chuckle to see that she is apparently a little taller than our little Napoleon, but the key thing, here?  Look at her date of birth, which I circled: he states it accurately.

It is worthwhile to explain precisely why Brett Kimberlin would have wanted to forge her birth certificate back when they got married, just before she turned seventeen.  You see, in Maryland it is legal for a person to get married when they are sixteen or seventeen years old, but there are certain procedures that must be followed.  Let me quote from Md. Family Law Code §2-301:

(a) Marriage of individual 16 or 17 years old. -- An individual 16 or 17 years old may not marry unless:

(1) the individual has the consent of a parent or guardian and the parent or guardian swears that the individual is at least 16 years old; or

(2) if the individual does not have the consent of a parent or guardian, either party to be married gives the clerk a certificate from a licensed physician or certified nurse practitioner stating that the physician or nurse practitioner has examined the woman to be married and has found that she is pregnant or has given birth to a child.

So you can get married, but you have to get either parental consent, or get that physician’s certificate.  But Brett Kimberlin can’t be bothered with these petty rules, so instead this convicted document forger forged a birth certificate.  And as for the certificate for returning to Ukraine, he falsified that document as well, because he needed to cover up what he had done.

But by the time Kimberlin filed the petition for the protective order I just quoted to you, Brett Kimberlin had gotten away with it for years and he probably figured the statute of limitations had run.  In fact he probably assumed many of his crimes were wiped clean, such as the statutory rape, so he didn’t have to maintain the fiction any more.  He told the truth, because he didn’t see a point in lying on it and indeed he probably worried that if he lied on the petition, someone might charge him with a false petition for a protective order, which is a crime.

So he knows she was fifteen years old back then.  He told us.

Another argument his toady Schmalfeldt in particular has raised is (paraphrase), “why didn’t she bring this up sooner?”  I know it will shock regular readers, but Schmalfeldt isn’t very sensitive or understanding of other people’s feelings, in this particular case, T.’s.

You see, folks, there is a reason why we make it illegal for a forty year old man to have sex with a fifteen year old girl.  Because a girl that young is not mature enough to handle the situation with appropriate maturity.  The danger of that older man dominating her in a way that is unhealthy are extremely high, when a more worldly man seduces a child.

And likewise, there is a reason why it is illegal for a sixteen year old to get married without parental consent or that doctor’s note.  Again it is because of the danger that the child might not be mature enough to make an intelligent decision.  By requiring parental consent, this means that his or her parents will have a chance to make sure the relationship is truly healthy.  And let’s face it, many parents would object to letting their daughter marry this guy:

Embedded image permalink

Or for that matter, this guy:

(Ripped off from here.) Of course the other exception, for when a girl is pregnant or was recently pregnant, is a throwback to the time when people believed that if a man got a woman pregnant, he should marry her.

So Brett Kimberlin had sex with T. before she was mature enough to deal with it.  Then he married her before she was mature enough to deal with that.  And then she is married and society expects her to make it work.  It takes time for her to figure out that Brett Kimberlin is not some great and important American big shot, but in fact kind of a son of a bitch and loser.  It takes time for her to see how he has been manipulating her.  And by the time she started realizing she wanted out, she thought that the statute of limitations had run out for the crimes he committed against her.

But it hadn’t run out.  The statute of limitations never runs for this crime, as Mia Farrow's brother discovered recently. And I guess once she learned that the statute of limitations hadn’t run out, she decided she wanted to see him pay a price in our criminal justice system for the way he had seduced and manipulated her as a child, and prevent others from doing the same.  Is that so hard to understand?

Finally, I see Brett Kimberlin’s defenders claiming that she is unfit as a mother because she is allegedly mentally ill.

Well, first, Brett is mentally ill himself.  He is a diagnosed sociopath.  And unlike her, he has a long criminal history that continues to this very day.  And his conduct has had a body count.  Indeed, the evidence presented today solidifies the long-festering suspicion that he had a sexual relationship with Debbbie/”Jessica” Barton.  And if he did, then it also solidifies in turn the long-festering suspicion that he had her grandmother, who objected to their relationship killed.

It’s like the OJ Simpson case.  When he murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, there were many Americans of good faith who were not convinced that he had done this crime.  But then he robbed that casino and I think most of the people who were not convinced of the earlier murder before, suddenly became convinced.  Subsequent behavior can confirm earlier suspicions.

As for T.’s mental health, it’s funny.  They could produce an obscure travel document from sixteen years ago within a few minutes, but Brett Kimberlin has never produced a single document diagnosing her with any condition.  Oh, I am sure this convicted document forger, who also forged her birth certificate—as he himself implicitly admitted—will get to work forging one for her, just as he did in forging medical records to support his false claims against me.  But the fact he never had this document so far speaks volumes.

T. herself denies that she has ever been diagnosed with a mental disorder.  What she says is that several years ago he abusively filed false commitment papers and got her locked in a hospital.  Within an hour, she was released, but he locked her out of the house and said she would not be allowed to see her children again unless she agreed to check herself back into the hospital (Brett always thinks it is his right to decide whether or not she sees the kids, as though someone appointed him the sole custody over them).  So she agreed to do so to humor him, stayed a week and even then still left with no diagnosis of any mental disorder.

I wonder if Brett Kimberlin could voluntarily check himself into a loony bin for just a week?  I suspect if he remained under the observation of trained psychiatrists for more than a week that they wouldn’t let him out at the end of the week.

The woman I have spoken to is bright and pretty even keeled for what all she had been through.  Brett Kimberlin has been tormenting me, my wife and my friends for over a year, but at least we didn’t have to live with the bastard.  At least our homes can be a sanctuary, by and large, from his evil.  Imagine if you had to live with it, twenty four hours a day, for around fifteen years?  Let’s be blunt, you probably can’t imagine it.  But it is safe to say that it would drive a lot of otherwise normal people batty.

Finally, they attack Mr. Hoge and I for daring to interfere in their family.  Bill Schmalfeldt even had one of his absurd death fantasies about it, thus violating the Peace Order Mr. Hoge has against him.  Well, yes, we are interfering.  And when I worked in a district attorney’s office’s domestic violence unit, I interfered there as well, doing my small part to throw abusive louts in jail.  There are, sadly, millions of men (and some women) who believe that marriage is a contest of cruelty rather than love.  But there are also millions of decent people who stand ready to lend the victims of such vile persons a helping hand and to help them escape.  I am proud to count myself as one of them.

And I am going to do something I have not done before.  I am going to show you a recent picture of Brett Kimberlin.

The reason why I do this is because I suspect that there are many more victims of Brett Kimberlin out there.  Indeed for the first time, I gave out Debbie Barton’s real name.  I did this because a pedophile like Brett Kimberlin thrives in secrecy.  He wants to commit his crimes where no one else can see, and demand that you keep it between you and him.

If you know Debbie Barton, who likely has a married name, ask her to come forward.  I don’t know what the statute of limitations in Indiana is for statutory rape, but even if we can’t prosecute him for what he probably did to her, she might be able to help T. in her quest for justice and put him away for a very long time.

Likewise, women across the country, look at this picture.  Do you recognize him?  Has he abused you?  If he has, come forward.  Maybe you can charge him, too.  Or maybe you can just help T. get justice.

Because it is not just about punishing him for what he did, but it is about the responsibility every victim of a crime owes the rest of society: to stop that criminal before he victimizes someone else.  I know that has driven me in my quest for justice for well over a year, and if he has victimized you, I ask you to join me.

And I ask everyone to spare a prayer for T. Kimberlin, her boyfriend Jay Elliott, her daughters, and all of the other people's daughters within Brett Kimberlin’s gaze.



I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.

In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.

And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).

And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.

The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.

And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.


  1. Just when you thought "The Saga" couldn't get any more skeevy, a new layer of filth is discovered.

  2. Brett and his allies have always been ruthless and monstrous thugs. I mean, the guy was convicted of bombing a high school sporting event and was determined by a fair trial to have killed someone in doing so.

    But this is much worse and much darker. While I hope there are no more victims, I think you're right that there are and I hope you find them so they can get the help they surely need.

    The biggest issue that has loomed, in my mind, over Brett Kimberlin since I first became aware of him, is Julia Scyphers. I have always believed that the most likely explanation for her murder is that Brett and his associates were eliminating an obstacle to Brett's disgusting interest in her grandchild. I pray that this child, now an adult woman, does indeed come forward. If only to stop this from happening to any more kids, but also because her grandmother has deserved justice, which up to this point has been denied.

    Thanks again for doing this.

  3. Thanks for the linkage.

    Keep on fighting, Aaron!

  4. Exactly how old was Debbie when Brett Kimberlin took naked pictures of her? If she wasn't 18, Brett Kimberlin was in possession of child pornography.

  5. Tweeting and re-tweeting far and wide. Nothing sickens me more than pedophiles do!

  6. I hope for her sake that Tetyana gets a real attorney who is authorized to practice in Maryland (you're not, correct?), doesn't have a past litigant history with her estranged husband and practices family law.

    Seriously, I'm sympathetic to your past with this guy, but as an officer of the court, you should be above getting directly involved in this bullshit. Give her a recommendation for a local attorney. Help her contact legal aide. But don't start helping her prepare legal documents or get involved in her case. That's a major conflict of interest and you know it.

  7. You're a brave man. All of you are: you and Hoge and Stranahan and McCain.

    I am heartened to see you all face this monster without cowering in fear, as so many others have.

    This is the beginning of the end for the pedophile bomber and his platoon of sycophantic trolls.

    Let's make some popcorn to snack on as we watch to see which rats run down the anchorchain from the sinking USS Kimberlin first.

  8. Jesus H. Christ.

    When I thought I couldn't have any less respect for Brett Kimberlin, there's this. I am ashamed that he is in the same country as I am.

  9. He has lived his “teen dream” of “fucking a teenage girl.”

    I got that out of the way when I was 19, with a girl who was 17. I don't know what's supposed to be so wonderful about it.

  10. If BK brought her to America for the purpose of engaging in sex, does qualify as human trafficking?

  11. Please read: to learn about the predatory paedophile cult under the leadership of Chris and Clare Godson in Benevent l'Abbaye, France. My email is:
