Phoenix, AZ asked in Criminal Law, Identity Theft and Wrongful Death for Arizona

Q: My situation concerns a religious organization who has made it clear that they would like me to be dead before 2020.

The members are very secretive and will almost never communicate any message in plain English. They won't say they're going to kill you but by watching them and adding things up, it's clear that they want to kill me. My problem is that I have no official charge against me, I have never seen an indictment, they have not provided me with the execution date either.

A: Your issue does not appear to be something that could be worked out in a court of law and I do not believe a court order would sway the members you refer to from carrying out the execution order once it is issued. I would recommend you contact the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem in Chandler and see if they can offer you protection. The SMOTJ is a modern organization descended from the Knights Templar. The Order is committed to supporting the unjustly accused and standing against oppression, so they may be very sympathetic to the situation you find yourself in.

Alternatively, you may want to speak with a psychiatrist should it be ultimately determined that a secretive and potentially evil religious sect that is seeking the extinguishment of your corporeal body only actually exists in your mind.

Hopefully one of these recommendations is helpful. Good luck in your quest for justice.
