Brandon L. Yellowbird Stevens: Felonious Burglar, Domestic Abuser, Habitual Criminal, Professional Liar [UPDATED]

As Oneida Eye updated yesterday’s post, the Oneida Business Committee’s Wednesday March 19, 2014 Emergency BC Meeting to address the $400 million lawsuit filed in Cook County Illinois Court by ACF Leasing, LLC, ACF Services, LLC, and Generation Clean Fuels, LLC, against Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC, Oneida Seven Generations Corporation and the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin will be resuming today at 9 a.m. Thursday March 20.

[If only someone could direct the BC to Oneida Eye’s post, The Perfect Opportunity To Defend Ourselves & Others.]

However, BC member Paul Ninham might be otherwise preoccupied with Oral Arguments in Brown Co. Case No. 2013CV1835Oneida Small Business Inc. vs. Duck Creek Coffee Co., LLC, Paul Ninham & Jill Martus-Ninham which will also be taking place at 9:00 a.m. at Brown County Courthouse, 2nd Floor, Room 260.

[UPDATE: Nobody showed up in defense of Paul Ninham. At 8:50 a.m. Judge Zuidmulder stated he had not received any response to Oneida Small Business, Inc.’s Motion for Summary Judgment from any representative for Paul nor Duck Creek Coffee, Co., LLC, and so he issued a Summary Judgment for Oneida Small Business, Inc.]

If the closed-door BC meeting lasts into Friday March 21 then BC member Brandon Stevens will likely not be present as he is scheduled to be a Keynote Speaker at the Friday Breakfast of the 2014 Native American Critical Issues event being held by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe.

One has to wonder if they were aware of the following information before they invited Council member Stevens to speak to native youths.

…Officer Kelly Lewis of the Green Bay Police Department [reported] that on June 19, 1998 at approximately 5:43 a.m., she was dispatched to a call of a disturbance near West Mason Street and Packerland Drive in the City of Green Bay[.] Lewis was informed that two Oneida Police Officers had stopped a male subject on a bicycle on suspicion of breaking into a number of storage sheds and attempting to break into a residence nearby. At the scene, Officer Lewis observed the defendant, Brandon L. Yellowbird-Stevens, was in custody of two Oneida Police Officers. One of the officers, William Cone, showed Lewis three screwdrivers, which he had removed from the defendant. At the scene, the defendant claimed he had the tools on him because he needed to fix the tire of his car. Lewis observed that the defendant appeared to be sweating and that his shoes and pant legs were wet. Officer Paul Ebel of the Green Bay Police Department also responded and informed Officer Lewis that S**** Maier complained that the defendant had attempted to break into her nearby residence on Country Club Road in the City of Green Bay[.] Officer Lewis asked the defendant if the bicycle belonged to him and the defendant admitted that it did not. He claimed it was lying in some grass behind his house and he just took it. He stated the bike was not in his yard, but had been in someone else’s yard. The Oneida Officers who were at the scene of the stop informed Officer Lewis that there had been a burglary in the Chief Hill Drive area nearby. Officer Lewis transported the bike to 1251 Chief Hill Drive and spoke with D**** Van Straten, who resides at that addres in the City of Green Bay. She explained that someone had broken into the storage shed behind her home sometime during the night or in the early morning hours of June 19, 1998. Van Straten stated her son’s bike was stolen from the locked storage shed. Van Straten identified the bike the defendant had been riding as her son’s stolen bike. Officer Lewis indicates the defendant had been drinking alcohol.

…Officer Paul Ebel went to the residence of S**** Maier on Country Club Road. Maier explained that she was sleeping in the family room of her residence when she was awakened by a noise from the garage early in the morning on June 19, 1998. She walked into the kitchen and looked out the kitchen window. She saw a bicycle in her front yard that did not belong to them. Maier then went to the door leading to the garage and opened the door. She yelled, “Is someone there?” and slammed the door shut. She then went back to her kitchen window and observed the defendant walk from near the garage to the bicycle that was laying on the ground and ride away toward Country Club Road. Maier then got into her vehicle and followed the defendant on [the] bicycle until she confronted him. The defendant claimed he was just cutting through some yards. She returned to her home and found a garage window had been opened. She called 911 to report that someone had tried to break into her house. She went back to the location of where she had confronted the defendant and was able to flag down some Green Bay Public Works employees to assist her in detaining the defendant. The police then arrived at the scene. Officer Ebel observed pry marks on the bottom of the window that Maier said was opened by someone. The pry marks were consistent with the screwdrivers found on the defendant. Officer Ebel also checked the residence next-door to Maier, the residence of M*** Muenssens. Muenssens’ residence also had pry marks on the back door to the garage of her residence. It did not appear there was any entry into the Muessens’ garage.

…Officer Dale Metoxen of the Oneida Police Department…also indicated he responded to the above referenced call. A citizen witness, S**** Maier, told Officer Metoxen that she had confronted the defndant and that he had ridden a bicycle into the III Sisters subdivision near Maier’s residence in Green Bay. Officer Metoxen spoke with a number of residents in the III Sisters subdivision nearby. K**** Brunette indicated that on the morning of June 19, 1998 at approximately 5:30 a.m., he observed that the door to his storage shed was opened. Someone had pried the lock off the door. Metoxen observed other storage sheds behind houses near K**** Brunette’s residence. He spoke with M******* Rodriguez, who stated that someone had entered her storage shed without consent and had stolen two bicycles. Metoxen spoke with another resident, B****** Dicke, who stated her storage shed was broken into, but she wasn’t sure if anything was taken. Metoxen spoke to another resident in the area, D**** Van Straten. She stated that her storage shed was broken into and that her son’s bicycle was stolen. Her son’s bicycle was recovered with the defendant by the police and returned to her. B***** Doxtator, another resident in the area, indicated her storage shed was broken into, but nothing appeared to be missing. P**** Hansen, another resident in the area, also stated her storage shed was broken into, but nothing appeared to be missing. Officer Metoxen turned the information he had obtained over to Officer Mark Ninham and Sergeant Marty Antone of the Oneida Police Department. They spoke with the defendant who admitted to breaking into a number of storage sheds in the area where he was stopped on the morning of June 19, 1998. He stated the sheds were in the III Sisters subdivision.

His review of the details of Officer Dakota House of the Oneida Police Department…; said details indicate that on October 29, 1999 at approximately 2:13 a.m., Officer House was dispatched to St. Mary’s Hospital in Green Bay in reference to a domestic violence complaint. Officer House…met with a female who identified herself as T**** D******. Officer House observed Ms. D****** lying in the hospital bed and that she was pregnant. He later learned that she was approximately eight months pregnant. Officer House observed that she had a redness under her left eye and he asked her what happened. At first she said that nothing happened but then admitted that her boyfriend, Brandon Stevens, and her got into an argument and that he shoved her. She admitted that he was drinking the night of the incident. She indicated that he shoved her. She indicated…that this shoving incident took place [at their residence] on October 28, 1999 at approximately 3:00 p.m. She then became uncooperative and would not give any further information to Officer House.

2. His review of a statement given by Rachel Baird to Officer House on October 29, 1999; in said statement, Ms. Baird indicated that she is a nurse on the maternity ward at St. Mary’s Hospital. She stated that on October 29, 1999, a twenty-two year old woman, later identified as T**** D******, was admitted to the Family Birthing Center from the Emergency Room with complaints of spotting and cramping. Baird stated that D****** is thirty-four weeks pregnant. D****** stated to Baird that there was something she needed to talk to her about. She informed Baird “My boyfriend hit me last night.” D****** then lifted up her short sleeved shirt and showed Ms. Baird bruised arms. Baird notices that D******’s arms were bruised with four to five finger sized bruises on each upper arm including the biceps and triceps. D****** stated that her boyfriend,…Brandon Stevens, grabbed her by the face, hit her head on the driveway, and pointed to the back left side of her head. She also stated her face was red and sore from where he grabbed her and pointed to the left side of her face on her cheekbone. Baird observed small quarter size reddend areas along with a possible bruise orginating from the corner of her eye and extending under her left eye. Baird asked if he had struck her anyplace else and D****** stated he hit her one or two times in the abdomen. It is noted that D****** is approximately eight months pregnant.

1. Battery [968.075 Domestic Abuse Incident] [939.62(1){a} Habitual Criminality {Prison < = 1 Yr}]

2. Disorderly Conduct [968.075 Domestic Abuse Incident] [939.62(1){a} Habitual Criminality {Prison < = 1 Yr}]

 

If Brandon Stevens had been forthright about this information either time that he ran for the Business Committee it might have seemed that he truly wanted the Oneida General Tribal Council to make an informed vote, but given the fact that Council member Stevens has gone around as the unrepentantly lying Liaison to Oneida Seven Generations Corp., parroting OSGC’s dangerously deceitful nonsense, one has to wonder if Brandon Stevens has truly learned his lessons or if has simply moved on from burglary and domestic beating of a pregnant woman to facilitating robbery of the Tribal treasury and wantonly endangering many living persons and those yet to be born; in fact, treasonously risking the very existence of the Oneida Tribe as well as tribes and communities across Wisconsin and the U.S.

From Oneida Eye post Ethics, Hypocrisy & Quicksand:

[A]cting in his official capacity as a Council member and Liaison to OSGC Mr. Stevens issued on August 9, 2010 a reply email to concerns about OSGC’s burgeoning gasification plans in which he said:

The biomass projects cited in these articles are incineration models that burn their feedstock and more than likely have smoke stacks and 7 Gens model is self-contained, no stacks.

Yet, Judge Marc A. Hammer at a January 9, 2013 Decision Hearing cited these same claims of “self-contained” and “no stacks” by OSGC as part of the evidence that OSGC made misrepresentations of their incinerator project to the City of Green Bay thereby warranting the city’s recision of a Conditional Use Permit. Beyond that, the WI Dept. of Natural Resources informed OSGC that their proposal was not, in fact, a “biomass project.”

When Council member Stevens was asked point blank about the false claims in his email at an April 30, 2013 Community Meeting regarding the petition to prohibit OSGC from building incinerators on the Oneida Reservation, he unscrupulously replied by falsely denying that he’d ever sent his August 9, 2010 email.

Surely lying in official OBC emails and publicly lying about lying in official OBC emails is no more in line with the Tribe’s Code of Ethics than [Vice-Chair Greg Matson] suggesting that the only alternative to attempting to silence someone is to assault them.

Perhaps in the July 12, 2014 General Tribal Election GTC will be able to make a better informed choice.

That is, if the BC doesn’t try to convince GTC that the Oneida Tribe can’t afford to hold an election the same way the BC claims that the Tribe can’t afford to conduct a Special GTC Meeting.

We only wish we were kidding.
