From the June 2003 Idaho Observer:

Hinkson hearing continued until judge has time to review entire file

BOISE -- Idaho District Federal Judge Lynn Winmill continued the show cause hearing in the case of Water OZ CEO Dave Hinkson, 46, of Grangeville from June 3, 2003, until June 24. The judge apparently decided the day before to continue the hearing due to a scheduling conflict. The delay was disappointing to several people who had not been informed of the change prior to traveling from as far away as Colorado to support Hinkson.

Under extremely questionable circumstances, Hinkson was arrested April 4. Federal prosecutors claim an audio tape recording proves Hinkson was plotting to kill at least five government agents. Hinkson claims the tape, a copy of which was obtained in discovery by his legal staff, in no way suggests an intention to harm anyone.

The controversy began last October when an IRS agent and a federal prosecutor who were party to a civil action being brought forward by Hinkson orchestrated an early morning raid on Hinkson's home and arrested him on bogus charges. Hinkson claims Federal Prosecutor Nancy Cook said she would drop the criminal actions against him if he dropped the civil action against her.

Hinkson's motion to show cause outlines the several allegations of prosecutorial and procedural misconduct that resulted in his imprisonment. Hinkson has the best legal representation money can buy.

Hinkson believes his release may be secured without a hearing so the federal government can avoid what could be an embarrassing day in court.
