Meet Ethan-Oliver James Reardon
On December 6th, 2021, Ethan-Oliver’s father, Matthew whom is an independent investigative journalist & reporter, discovered a key court record in Lafayette County Circuit Court that was fraudulently altered now twice over the past year on two currently active filed matters of Reardon’s. When pressing in for answers as to how this could have happened, the Circuit Clerk got highly defensive and had communicated out to the Lafayette County Sheriff Joey East in order to try to get rid of Reardon along with what the county and certain County Officials would interpret as a significant issue discovered and sore on the horizon. East’s motive in the matter is very clear to see when taking into consideration key facts based upon numerous erroneous and concerning findings have more recently surfaced regarding the Lafayette County Sheriff’s alleged involvement in a matter dating back to 2017. Even more alarming is the fact that the latest record fraudulently altered in Circuit Court that was discovered by Reardon just so happened to be a matter Reardon was appealing from Lafayette County Justice Court where East’s Deputies and even he himself gave false sworn testimony in order to contrive a conviction based upon lies. The very next day, December 7th, 2021, Lafayette County Sheriff Joey East rose to the occasion once again in passing obnoxious lies and complaints centered around constitutionally protected activity as a journalist, reporter, and credentialed member of the press to an employee of Communicare by the name of Rachel Alcorn with a predisposed plan to exploit the State’s mental health laws by cutting corners, ignoring required procedure under state law, and seeking to separate a husband and father of four from his family in a grueling, sickening act that undoubtedly would align with not only the feeling, but the legal definition of human trafficking. And this they were successful in doing at the expense of Reardon and his family when no crimes were ever committed and the procedure botched through and through. At approximately 5pm on December 7th, 2021 upon returning home from a Doctors Appointment for one of his children, Reardon is taken into custody at his residence in front of his wife and child based upon false claims in a sinister, cowardly attack on an independent journalist in order to suppress the reporting of fraud to not only the public but the proper authorities for the dishonesty which took place on open legal matters stemming from the Lafayette County Circuit Court/Circuit Clerks Office.
Reardon immediately condemned the ruthless attack and hailed the involuntary commitment as a fraudulent commitment coming about as a result of completely erroneous lies spewed by the sheriff, Joey East, and echoed by Communicare staff members. After voicing his complete disgust with the matter to a Communicare employee, Matthew was informed that he needed to submit any complaint in writing to the director of the Facility including any demand for preservation of evidence. Early on in the afternoon on February 8th, 2022 at the conclusion of speaking with chancery court clerk Sherry Wall, Reardon filed and served an 8-page shocking letter with Chancery Judge Lawrence Little’s chambers and Communicare’s executive director Dr. Sandy Rogers.
The very next day, February 9th, 2022, another Communicare Employee proceeded to file another affidavit for commitment of Reardon claiming Reardon had refused to attend a scheduled appointment, however, recorded phone calls with Communicare paint an entirely different picture and in combination with the Complaint filed just 1-day prior almost certainly show that this latest move by Communicare and its employees was ill-brought once again and done to retaliate against Reardon and once again try to dodge a situation that the county and Communicare brought on themselves.
On February 10th, 2022, upon returning home close to midnight from Madelyn being hospitalized due to pregnancy complications, Lafayette County Sheriffs Deputies light up the yard with blue lights and take Reardon once again into custody for the affidavit for commitment filed in front of his wife, Madelyn. He was held for 6-days without any rights afforded to him at the Lafayette County Detention Center and then shipped 2.5 hours across the state to the East Mississippi State Hospital in Meridian MS on February 16th, 2022. All of this put Madelyn into preterm labor and she gave birth via emergency c-section on February 17, 2022
