Complaint filed to Minnesota Judge: East Grand Forks City Attorney conspiring to conceal evidence of child rape porn and sex trafficking of missing child

By Timothy Charles Holmseth on July 14, 2018 at 10:56 A.M. CST

Timothy Charles Holmseth, an investigative journalist from East Grand Forks, Minnesota has filed a formal complaint against East Grand Forks City Attorney Ronald Galstad.

The complaint was sent to the court today.

Holmseth alleges Galstad used his position and prosecutorial powers as EGF City Attorney, to assist another attorney in her bid to escape prosecution after she was outed by staff members as possessing child porn of a missing child from Florida named HaLeigh Cummings. The attorney was also named as a participant in an illegal baby sales operation that involves the sale of infants and little kids internationally.

Copies of the complaint have been provided to EGF City Manager David Murphy and Attorney Gretchen Handy.

In Re: REPORT ATTORNEY MISCONDUCT / Request for new lawyer / STATE of MINNESOTA vs. TIMOTHY CHARLES HOLMSETH Court File Number: 60-CR-18-343, 439, 441

District Judge

Crookston, MN 56716

Honorable District Judge,

I am contacting the court to report the misconduct of a lawyer named Ronald I. Galstad.

I am also requesting the court order I be given a new lawyer.

On July 11, 2018 I contacted my public defender Gretchen Handy and told her I would like a new attorney. My explanation for wanting a new lawyer was laid out in a letter to Attorney Handy which was also sent to the U.S. District Court where I am the Plaintiff in HOLMSETH v. CITY OF EAST OF EAST GRAND FORKS et al - Court File Number 14-2970. SEE ATTACHED

When I asked Attorney Handy how I should proceed with obtaining a new layer she said I would need to contact her supervisor Kip Fontaine. I contacted Attorney Fontaine and received no reply.

I am presently the Plaintiff in HOLMSETH vs. REDACTED et al - Court File Number 
3:18-CV-00361 - Virginia Eastern District Court. I am legally represented in the case by Attorney Steven S. Biss, Virginia.

I have been advised by Attorney Biss the domestic violence court order from Broward County, Florida issued using 'Repeat Violence' (Florida dating law) to protect a person (REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED) I never met, in a state I have not been to, is unconstitutional. The order reads:  THE RESPONDENT SHALL NOT MAKE ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT REFERENCE ABOUT THE PETITIONER ON THE INTERNET OR BY USE OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. THE RESPONDENT SHALL REMOVE ALL BOOKS, WRITINGS, VIDEOS, PHOTOS, RECORDINGS, AND/OR MATERIALS CURRENTLY PUBLISHED ON THE INTERNET ABOUT THE PETITIONER FORTWITH.

Attorney Biss advised me that the Florida court order, through its language, and the way it originally came into existence, violates several of my constitutional rights. He said, “It's unconstitutional - Tim, it’s so broad it would prohibit you from talking to me.”


Attorney Handy expressed no willingness to address the unconstitutional nature of the court order. She also refused to embrace issues of misconduct involving the prosecutor, East Grand Forks City Attorney Ronald Galstad.

I am being charged with publishing already-public court files that reveal detailed information about REDACTED REDACTED's involvement with child pornography of a missing child, fake adoptions, and international child trafficking.

Attorney Galstad is enforcing the Florida order to protect REDACTED REDACTED as well as himself because they are engaging in an ongoing federal crime, which I laid out in my letter to the federal court: I am requesting the case be re-opened because (1) I believe my Constitutional rights under the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments are being violated (2) in the commission of  18 U.S. Code § 241 - Conspiracy Against Rights, (3) said conspiracy in place to protect persons in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2251 - Sexual Exploitation of Children, (4) and other state and federal crimes regarding international child trafficking, (5)  that violate the Executive Order signed by President Donald J. Trump on December 20, 2017 which declares in part; I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat. - Donald J. Trump


On December 14, 2012 the East Grand Forks Police seized my computer with a search warrant. They placed Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension stickers on the seized property. On January 4, 2013 Attorney Galstad said the following in open court which is provided below via a transcription from the hearing which I obtained from Judge Yon's court reporter.

“I’ve just been notified that the BCA, before they’ll do a forensic search of that computer, wants either an Order of this court, or a search warrant that says they can - - we got the original search warrant, but for whatever reason the BCA wants something that says that they can actually search that hard-drive. So I am going to be either, one, asking - - or requesting an additional warrant for forensic search of that computer hard-drive or the Court can make that Order as they see fit, but I’m going to be doing that.”

Galstad was lying.

In December, 2013 I contacted the BCA and spoke with Jill Oliveira and Assistant Superintendent Drew Evans. Oliveira said, "The BCA had no role in the investigation you describe and did not attach any tags to evidence in that case". Evans said, "We were not requested to conduct a forensic examination of your computer". SEE ATTACHED

The BCA was not aware of anything regarding me.

The police seized my computer on fabricated false pretenses (REDACTED REDACTED court order / falsely generated appearance that I am a drug dealer) because somebody told them that somebody sent me copies of child rape porn of HaLeigh Cummings and they would find it on my computer. Galstad and the EGFPD are hiding their knowledge of the child porn because it leads back to the people that kidnapped and raped the child.

I am the target of a criminal conspiracy that involves Ronald Galstad and others that are engaging crimes against children.
