Valentine’s Day Keeps Private Investigators Busy

Private Investigators and Valentine's Day
Valentine’s Day can be disappointing when your partner is cheating

 

Each year in February calls to private investigators for cheating spouse and infidelity investigations increase.

Here are a few examples of why that may be:

  • The cheating spouse cannot help but lavish their “lover” with gifts for Valentine’s Day, usually in the form of sexy lingerie.
  • Statistics show that a person cheating will spend February 13th or February 15th with their lover and February 14th with their wife, girlfriend or partner.
  • Woman are more likely to be caught cheating on Valentine’s Day then men.

Partners in a relationship have certain expectations, and Valentine’s Day historically means a day to celebrate their love for one another. But, if one, or both, of the partners is keeping company with someone else, Valentine’s Day can become complicated.

A woman may expect flowers, jewelry, candy, or other gifts expressing her partner’s love for her. Or, a man may have expectations of celebrating with the gift of a special sexual encounter. But, when one or the other has to juggle an extra relationship, these expectations are likely to be disappointing.

We find that when there are suspicions of infidelity a partner wants to know, especially if they’ve been disappointed on Valentine’s Day. We believe this is the reason for the added calls for our services.

Suspicion of Cheating

Oftentimes a relationship goes bad when one partner suspects the other of cheating. The fear of not knowing the truth creates even further stress and leads to the breakdown of trust. However, there are ways to discreetly and safely get to the truth and be able to make informed decisions about future plans.

If you think your spouse or significant other is cheating now would be a good time to contact a private investigator.

NYU Documentary Film Festival Features Jonathan Fleming, Bob Rahn & Kim Anklin in The Trouble with Innocence

 

Filmfest-624x254

On Saturday, February 7, Bob Rahn and Kim Anklin of Management Resources LTD of NY will be attending the 2015 NYU News and Doc Film Festival. Director and journalist Yamiche Alcindor interviewed the pair for THE TROUBLE WITH INNOCENCE, her film account of the wrongful conviction and exoneration of Jonathan Fleming.

A breaking news reporter for USA Today, Alcindor also covers social issues affecting the lives of people across the country. In her film THE TROUBLE WITH INNOCENCE she relates the conditions and deprivation of Jonathan Fleming, who was wrongly convicted of murder and serving a 25 years to life sentence before his April 2014 exoneration. Fleming was set free with only $93 to rebuild his life. She speaks with Fleming about his experience, his exoneration, the long term affects his conviction had on his family, his current situation, and his plans for the future.

Also interviewed for the film is Kings County District Attorney, Kenneth Thompson whose office inherited over 100 cases of questionable convictions being reviewed by the Conviction Review Unit which was implemented when he took office in January 2014.

“The C.R.U. represents Thompson’s attempt to correct systemic flaws in Brooklyn’s criminal-justice apparatus, which have included poor oversight, inadequate independent review, and a lack of prosecutorial and police transparency—and which have enabled problems ranging from mistakes in judgment to deliberate misconduct.” The New Yorker

The exoneration of Jonathan Fleming has become the career changing case for investigators Bob Rahn and Kim Anklin who spent a full year uncovering the evidence put into motion that lead freeing him of over 24 years of wrongful incarceration.

While the case has many compelling aspects, two exceptionally important events affected its outcome. First, Kim and Bob were successful in obtaining a sworn affidavit from a new witness that was the impetus behind the Kings County District Attorney’s Conviction Integrity Unit reopening its case and agreeing to work with them. Secondly, they located a witness and obtained a recorded statement and signed affidavit in which he identified as the true shooter and confirmed that Mr. Fleming was innocent.

Kim and Bob have received high honors amongst their peers for their painstaking work to free Jonathan. Today, they continue to work closely with him and his family as he reintegrates back into everyday life.

NYU Documentary Film Festival Features Jonathan Fleming, Bob Rahn & Kim Anklin in The Trouble with Innocence

 

St. Francis College Lecture with Jonathan Fleming

On October 28, 2014 Bob Rahn, Kim Anklin, and Jonathan Fleming were honored to be guest lecturers hosted by Professor Emily Horowitz at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY. Their presentation to the class covered wrongful convictions and the high price of innocence, specifically Fleming’s wrongful conviction and subsequent exoneration.

Joining Rahn and Anklin, Jonathan Fleming  was able to speak to students and faculty about his first hand experience of being innocently incarcerated for close to 25 years and what it took to regain his freedom.

DSC_0059Each spoke about their direct participation in re-investigating Fleming’s conviction and uncovering prosecutorial misconduct and overlooked evidence. Fleming was exonerated in April of 2014.

While the case has many compelling aspects, two exceptionally important events effected its outcome. First, Kim and Bob were successful in obtaining a sworn affidavit from a new witness that was the impetus behind the Kings County District Attorney’s Conviction Integrity Unit reopening its case and agreeing to work with them. Secondly, they located a witness and obtained a recorded statement and signed affidavit in which he identified the true shooter and confirmed that Mr. Fleming was innocent.

Bob Rahn and Kim Anklin have received high honors from their peers for their painstaking work on the Fleming case, and have managed to keep the best interest of their client in the forefront since his release

Criminal Justice majors at St. Francis College learn about social issues; the theory, research, policy, and practice of criminal justice; and how to think critically and objectively. Class instruction is often complimented by guest lecturers and adjunct instructors.

The video is the complete lecture in which you will hear directly from Bob Rahn, Kim Anklin, and the exonerated Jonathan Fleming. Fleming’s emotional story speaks to the heart of the issue of wrongful convictions, as well as clarifying his personal sacrifices and what he missed the 25 years he was incarcerated.

Students had several well thought questions for all three in the Q&A session following.

Her work has appeared in the New York Times (with journalist Debbie Nathan), CounterpunchReproductive Rights Reality Check, the Italian newspaper Il Foglio Quotidiano, and the social science journal The Journal of the Institute of Justice and International Studies.

Horowitz says, “Thank you all so much for coming and speaking to our students yesterday. You were all remarkable and make a great team. Bob did such a good job setting up the story and the case and putting everything in context, and Kim did a great job giving the story a human angle and explaining the “web of impact”…and then Jonathan did such a beautiful job telling the story from his perspective. It was an amazing event.”

Do you think your spouse is cheating?

infidelity, matrimonial investigations

 

Oftentimes a relationship goes bad when one partner suspects the other of cheating. The fear of not knowing the truth creates even further stress and leads to the breakdown of trust. However, there are ways to discreetly and safely get to the truth and be able to make informed decisions about future plans.

Here are some behavior indicators of a cheating spouse:

  1. Odd receipts or bills suddenly appearing
  2. Unexplained increase in traveling
  3. Strange numbers showing up on caller ID
  4. Late hours on the Internet
  5. Increased time on-line
  6. Unexplained texting or unusual text messages showing up on cell phone
  7. Sudden change in image, behaviour or wardrobe
  8. Last minute schedule changes
  9. Suddenly working odd hours

Surveillance is one way that investigators can offer proof, through video or pictures, but another area of concern should be hidden assets. Do you know if your partner has bank accounts or real estate that you know nothing about?

A professional investigator has the ability to research databases and records that are not available to the general public.

It’s important to remember that if you decide to end the relationship, or file for divorce, accurate and professional records, documents and evidence is paramount to a successful outcome in court.

Management Resources LTD of New York has years of experience in investigating relationship cases, providing the truth at a time when you are most likely emotionally drained, afraid, and confused.

I knew something was wrong with my husband but was not sure what. My intuition already told me what I didn’t want to know. When I contact Bob and Kim I was concerned about cost but I found them to be very accommodating and supportive. Unfortunately their work confirmed my intuition but at least I was no longer living in doubt. I had the proof I needed. With hard evidence at hand I confronted my husband. This was not easy but now I can move on with my life. Thank you for all your good work, support and accommodation.

Message from Jonathan Fleming

Management Resources principles Bob Rahn and Kim Anklin were honored to be included in Penn State’s online course, Presumed Innocent? The Social Science of Wrongful Conviction. Interviewed extensively about the wrongful conviction and exoneration of Jonathan Fleming, many questions arose from the class. Kim Anklin has been answering questions from students in the forum, “Ask Kim Anything.” Although the class is complete we are reprinting some of the general entries with the hope that readers will learn more about these types of investigations.

 

Jonathan Fleming and Kim Anklin

Since several of you asked me how Jonathan Fleming has been doing since his exoneration, I asked him to say a few words to you.

A message from Jonathan Fleming – Exonerated 4/8/2014:

To the Penn State Students:

I wanted to express to you how appreciative I am that you are taking this class and are interested in my case. While I try to put my life back together, I hope that more people take the time to learn about how someone can be wrongfully convicted and incarcerated for almost 25 years for something they didn’t do.

Please know that while I am very happy and grateful that I am free, these past four months have not been easy. I have become painfully aware how much time I have lost. My four sons are grown and I have not been there to help them navigate through life. Two of my sons were actually with me in Florida so you can only imagine how hard this has been on them. My mother is not well and I worry about her everyday. Throughout my incarceration and now free, my mother continues to be my greatest supporter and I wouldn’t be here without her love for me.

Whatever your plans are to work in combatting wrongful convictions please know I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. The victim in my case was my friend. It is not fair that he and his family did not get justice. His girlfriend at the time was pregnant with his son. Another boy left to grow up without his father sickens me. I know because I could not be there for my sons. No one should suffer being incarcerated while the real perpetrators get to be free and their children left to wonder who their Dad is.

Thank you for being out in the world for us.

My warmest regards,

Jonathan Fleming
