Ballard County Attorney Vicki Hayden, Officer Trent Grief, and Ballard County Sherriff’s
Department participate in extortion scheme by Mike Oakley’s estranged wife Amie J
On December 12, 2009 Mike Oakley met his estranged wife Niece/ Aime J Oakley with
plans of attending a Christmas party with her. Mike and Niece were trying to patch
up their broken marriage. Mike was a few minutes late and Niece was angry, again.
Mike saw the night was not going to work and was leaving which infuriated Niece.
Niece demanded a divorce once again and then demanded Mike pay her $30,000 dollars
immediately or told him she would have him arrested. Mike refused and started to
leave again. Niece made good on her promise. She attacked Mike as he was leaving
scratching and biting him. When Mike finally got into his truck and locked the door
she continued to beat on the truck and windows as Mike drove away. Mike did nothing
to harm Niece even in defense of her brutal attack. Niece did not have a scratch
on her! Pictures of Mike enclosed.
Niece then filed a false police report with the help of Officer Trent Grief. It is
alleged that Niece and Trent “know each other very well”. Officer Grief then knowingly
filed the false charge against Mike of fleeing a law officer which is a First Degree
Felony. This is the act of evading capture by police such as a high speed auto chase.
Mike had peacefully driven off from the scene immediately and never saw any police
Niece and every other woman in western Kentucky knows how the system works and knows
there will be no legal repercussions for filing false reports. Niece then called
Mike’s foreman at TVA and reported the same false story and that Mike was dangerous
and armed. TVA police searched Mike’s truck and TVA police escorted Mike from the
property. Mike was restricted from the job site and suspended without pay. TVA then
started the process which leads to Mike’s termination of his job over nothing more
than state sponsored harassment and extortion. Aside from the humiliation and embarrassment
Mike had to attend physiological evaluations and came close to permanently losing
Mike and every man in Kentucky is helpless to defend himself against such charges.
The following Monday I, Mike East accompanied Mike to the county attorney and sheriff’s
office were Mike produced the pictures of his attack and told what happened to the
county attorney and sheriff. Mike was arrested and prosecuted anyway. The county
attorney Vicki Hayden refused to file charges against the true attacker or take any
action against Niece for filing false charges. Ballard County Attorney Vicki Hayden
stated it was a “conflict of interest” for her to file any charges against the woman.
All charges against Mike were dismissed immediately at the hearing.
Niece made the county attorney and sheriff look completely incompetent, and used
both of them in her scheme to extort the $30,000 from Mike. This type of blackmail
and extortion is used frequently across Western Kentucky. Restraining orders are
referred to as a “Slam Dunk” by the legal community meaning there is no defense against
them and are completely destroying public trust in our courts and law enforcement.
This type of participation in extortion by state employees is in violation of federal
