In my opinion and from the facts gathered by an investigation of open public court records, arrest records and archived news articles, it appears to me that Occupy Sarasota poster boy Chris Young has set up the Sarasota Police Department and the City of Sarasota for a Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit, with Michael Barfield of the ACLU and local attorney Derek Byrd at his side.

SARASOTA – A defense attorney who built her private practice questioning law enforcement arrests was charged with resisting arrest without violence on Saturday morning. Sarasota police said Andrea Mogensen, 42, her photo, refused to stop and give her first name as she walked at 3 a.m. in the 2500 block of South Milmar Drive. Police were responding to a domestic dispute at her boyfriend’s house in the 2500 block of South Milmar Drive, where a window had been broken. Andrea Mogensen fit the description of the woman involved in the dispute, police said. When an officer approached her, she stated she was a lawyer and did not have to stop, a police report says. The officer took Andrea Mogensen to the ground, handcuffed her and charged her with obstruction.
Occupy Sarasota protester Chris Young’s arrest has made Regional Media headlines since Saturday 2/25/2012. Michael Barfield, who works for attorney Andrea Morgensen, both linked to the ACLU, contends the arrest by the Sarasota Police Department violated Chris Young’s constitutional right of free speech. The involvement of Michael Barfield and the ACLU and all the media coverage of Chris Young has made all of the participants, at the very least ,”Limited Public Figures” and as such the motives and backgrounds of Michael Barfield and Chris Young and their interaction with Law Enforcement are open to scrutiny.

Do the backgrounds of Occupy Sarasota protester Chris Young, Michael A. Barfield of the ACLU and attorney Andrea Morgensen indicate or show any reason why they would hold any anti-Law Enforcement and/or anti-Government grudges, YOU BET THEY WOULD?! Chris Young has made public statements that he is a “Disabled Iraqi War Vet” who served in the US Navy during Desert Storm 1991, giving the general public the impression that he is one of the “good guys”. Chris Young refused to move on when ordered by SPD officer Neri in Five Points Park on 2/25/2012, Chris Young pulled away from SPD officer Neri when he was placed under arrest and resisted, from an investigation of Chris Young it appears he does not like cops.
Chris Young was known to the Sarasota Police Department before his arrest in Five Points park on Saturday 2/25/2012. Chris Young had been picked up by the Sarasota Police Department (SPD) on 2/19/2009 on an out of county arrest Warrant, violation of probation felony drugs, see booking photo above. Chris Young has a criminal record in Sawannee County (Lake City Fl) for the sale of Meth, Marijuana, Hallucinogens, Barbiturates, Cocaine, and Hydrocodone. Chris Young had been arrested multiple times by the cops in Sawannee County, he knew the drill and he knew not to resist because that just adds to the charges. Chris Young, as a drug dealer, was known to the Sarasota Police Department (SPD) Intelligence Division as they keep track of guys like him when they show up in town, so why did Chris Young ignore the cops request for him to move on in Five Points Park, why did he resist arrest in Five Points Park when he knew not to, or did he want to be arrested, was this a set up?
From an investigation of open court records, arrest records and archived news articles the arrest in Five Points Park Sarasota is not the first time Chris Young has had serious interaction with Law Enforcement and the Criminal Court system and the same goes for Michael Barfield of the ACLU who has gone to bat for Chris Young, see following news articles; SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE 3/01/2012….Occupy Sarasota protester resists arrest. Arrested Occupy Sarasota poster boy Chris Young has retained criminal defense attorney Derek Byrd, who took the case pro bono. Michael Barfield, spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union ( ACLU) announced it was starting an investigation into Chris Young’s arrest, and the group made numerous public records requests related to the arrest and hired a private investigator who is interviewing witnesses. Michael Barfield’s ACLU and Sarasota attorney Derek Byrd are keeping the leaders in the “Occupy Movement” happy defending Chris Young for free. Sarasota Herald Tribune Published: Sunday, September 26, 2010. Tom Lyons: Jail Chaplain Shakeup… Well, there was a letter from the ACLU to the sheriff’s office, and it was written by Michael Barfield, the former prison inmate turned Sarasota paralegal, known for work with lawsuits against local governments (pro-se).
Orlando Sentinel “Paralegal Accused Of Theft”, December 13, 1995 By SARAH RAGLAND Staff Writer. Paralegal Michael Barfield made his name by taking on police and prosecutors. Now he’s on the defensive. MICHAEL BARFIELD is accused of stealing from an Okeechobee woman who hired him in January to help her collect money from her ex-husband, West Palm Beach police reported. Detectives said Barfield agreed to help Jodie Everett collect about $7,500 from her ex-husband. Barfield collected $5,000 from the man, but told Everett he collected $3,000, police said. Moreover, Barfield put Everett off for months as she tried to collect the $3,000, less Barfield’s 30 percent fee. “He has no business being in the paralegal business,” Everett said. “He is nothing but a crook.” “Mr. Barfield stole money from me,” she said. “If the city of West Palm Beach has a problem with him, that’s not my problem. My problem is: Mr. Barfield is a crook.”
Orlando Sentinel Staff ‘Barrister’ Behind Bars A Look At 1 Inmate Who Keeps Courts Busy. January 16, 1988 By Elizabeth Wasserman…In a cell at Lake Correctional Institution sleeps one inmate whom authorities across the state wish they’d never met, Michael Barfield. He’s been butting heads with the system for years. He got thrown in jail for forging checks and stealing a car. He got tangled up with the FBI — something about a Russian spy probe. A self-trained ”jailhouse lawyer,” the 25-year-old Michael Barfield has a high I.Q., a low tolerance for what he views as ”retaliation” against prison inmates who file lawsuits. Barfield’s parents signed a waiver allowing him to join the U.S. Navy when he was 17. In the Navy, Barfield says, he got involved with computer research on two aircraft carriers. The project studied the effects of climate on weapons systems. He also got involved with a female Naval intelligence officer.Barfield says he and the Navy parted company after two years with the help of an administrative discharge, something the Navy won’t confirm. Barfield fell on hard times after the Navy. With an accomplice, he decided to earn a quick buck by setting up a fraudulent company, forging and cashing payroll checks, and stealing credit cards and a car ending up in prison. While Barfiled was in prison two FBI agents came to see David H. Brierton, the state Department of Corrections’ inspector general about Barfield. The agents asked him to have Barfield ”secured.” He was suspected of passing secrets to the Russians. When Brierton balked, he says, the agents assured him a federal grand jury would indict Barfield within 60 days. Brierton suggested Florida State Prison, the system’s most secure facility and the only one for males sentenced to die. Barfield’s transfer was in August 1983. The 20-year-old youthful offender, eligible for a work-release program, instead was transferred to a Death Row cell at Florida State Prison. He says his cell was 20 feet from ”Old Sparky,” the state’s electric chair.
The ACLU mouthpiece, Michael A. Barfield, for Occupy Sarasota protester Chris Young has a very troubling history, as does Chris Young. Michael A. Barfield is not listed with the Florida Bar and as such can not practice law in the State of Florida for a client, he appears to be a paralegal, see link http://www.floridabar.org/names.nsf/MESearchDK?OpenForm#SRB. Michael A. Barfield, DOB 6/6/62, is a convicted State of Florida Felon who did State prison time starting in 1982, Michael Barfield also did six years in the Federal prison system starting in 1999.Michael A. Barfield, DOB 6/6/62 was also arrested in Sarasota Fl for passing bad checks in 1999 before he went away to Federal Prison, looks like he did not learn his lesson in State Prison, see link CLICK HERE.
United States v. Barfield, Middle District of Florida;
Michael A. Barfield, a paralegal and litigation consultant, pled guilty on May 12, 1999, to five felony offenses, including conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury before a federal grand jury, and two separate wire fraud schemes. On October 25, 1999, Michael A. Barfield was sentenced to ten years in prison, fined $7,500, and ordered to pay $50,500 in restitution. Michael A. Barfield did 6 years of the 10 year sentence, see link CLICK HERE.The conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury convictions stem from Barfield’s role in concocting a false accusation in 1997 against then-United States District Judge Lee P. Gagliardi, now deceased, and Assistant United States Attorney Kathleen A. Haley, in an attempt to disqualify the judge from presiding over a pending criminal case. Michael Barfield hired two private investigators, Deana Scapaccino and Dana Corum, to help carry out the illegal scheme. Barfield, Scapaccino and Corum falsely claimed that the judge and prosecutor met at a restaurant where they discussed details of the pending prosecution and exchanged case-related documents. During the federal grand jury investigation triggered by this accusation, Barfield and his co-conspirators repeatedly attempted to bolster their false accusation by providing false information to the FBI and false testimony and fabricated documents to the grand jury.
On July 28, 1999, a federal jury convicted Dana H. Corum, a private investigator and former paralegal, of conspiracy, obstructing justice in a pending federal criminal case, obstructing justice in a federal grand jury investigation, and acting as an accessory after the fact to perjury. Corum was indicted on these charges on March 24, 1999. She was sentenced to 78 months in prison on December 15, 1999. Corum was one of two private investigators hired by Michael Barfield to make a false accusation against United States District Judge Gagliardi to disqualify the judge from presiding over a pending criminal case. Deana M. Scapaccino, a private investigator, pled guilty on July 13, 1999, to a two-count criminal information charging her with conspiracy to obstruct justice, commit perjury, and provide false statements, and obstruction of justice in a pending federal criminal case. Scapaccino was the other private investigator hired by Barfield to make a false accusation against Judge Gagliardi. Along with her coconspirators, Scapaccino repeatedly provided false information to the FBI and false testimony and fabricated documents to the grand jury. Deana Scapaccino was sentenced to 15 months in prison on October 26, 1999.

On March 1st, 2012 ACLU mouthpiece Michael Barfield made statements in the Sarasota Herald Tribune that a private investigator had been hired and is interviewing witnesses in the Occupy Sarasota Chris Young arrest, “it’s deja vu all over again“.
Christopher M. Young is a convicted felon, he was put on probation 03/18/2009 for five years. He appears to be a drug dealer who sold Meth, Marijuana, Hallucinogens, Barbiturates, Cocaine, and Hydrocodone in Northern Florida (Lake City area). It has also been alleged by someone who said they served with him in the Navy that he was let go under less than amicable conditions, not verified at this point, there also appears to be links to criminal activity in Joliet IL, also not verified as of yet. The criminal history of Christopher M. Young DOB 12/24/1971 in Florida, and only Florida at this time, is below, he appears to sells drugs, no wonder he has a sign in the back window of his Chevy van that states “END THE D.E.A.”.
