Thomas S. Talbert and his child, T.M.T. vs. Cabell County Commission
PA- pro se
* On Sept. 10, 2005, Talbert was arrested and charged with felony third offense driving under the influence of alcohol and was subsequently convicted of the offense. Talbert claims he had served more than 10 years in prison for previous convictions that were dismissed and the Sept. 10, 2005, offense was dismissed due to invalid prior convictions. Talbert claims the defendant caused him to be subjected to imprisonment without the lawful authority to do so. The defendant’s actions caused Talbert’s child to suffer damages, including having to grow up without the benefit of having his father present, he says. Talbert is seeking judgment for the damages that a jury finds he is entitled to have.
