AFFIDAVIT OF Melody Gillespie IN SUPPORT OF CONTEMPT OF COURT

I, Melody Gillespie, do hereby declare:


On or about Friday, May 28,2010, at approximately 0745 am I arrived home from work to find my dog, a small terrier named Jasper had been shot with a 22 rifle while the animal was on a tether. He had just been shot shortly before I arrived home from work. Affiant fully believes The dog was close by

August 1,2008 at approximately 2:30 pm I witnessed Mr. Hoffman shoot a small dog of ours, a welsh-corgi mix, named Nacho, with the same type of22 rifle, that Jasper was shot with. attachment A incorporated herein by reference as iffully set forth) My husband, Courtney (See

Gillespie was awakened by the gunshot and met Affiant when Affiant arrived home from work. Affiant works the hours of eleven pm to seven am. Mr. Gillespie informed Affiant that Jasper had been shot. Mr. Gillespie had to get dressed and take Jasper to the vet. Because it was an

emergency, it took Mr. Gillespie most of the morning to find a vet that would take Jasper on an emergency basis. The vet said that the bullet had broken several ribs and had done unknown We had to have Jasper put to sleep, or he would have lived a few From where Jasper was located, someone from the Hoffman Affiant witnessed that Mr. Hoffman was at home at the time.

residence had to have shot Jasper.

Mr. Gillespie had to go to work after taking Jasper to the vet, and therefore notified the sheriff the next day and showed the officer where Jasper was when he was shot and gave him the vet's death certificate. Just prior to the officer coming to our home, Affiant and Mr. Gillespie

saw Nicklas leave out of his gate, and take off down the road at approximately 10:00 am on Saturday, May 29,2010. Because Mr. Hoffman was not at home when the officer came to the The officer was going to be away for the next 2 When the

weeks and was not able to question Mr. Hoffman at the Hoffman residence until then. officer did question him, Mr. Hoffman denied being at home.

Affiant did observe Mr. Hoffman

to be at home when the shooting took place and he did not leave until the next day. This is

sheriff's case number 10-6443.

The report was taken by Ofc. D. Linares.

On or about May 27,2010 at approximately 9:00 pm, the same day as the court hearing about the TRO, in which Mr. Hoffman told the Hon. Lloyd Hicks he could leave the Gillespies alone, he posted a computer generated note on the gate of the Gillespies' residence, which stated: "Today the judge offered us mutual restraining orders. I don't want to lose my rights and I really have no desire for you to lose yours. I will not file for the restraining orders against you tow, unless you first file against me. It is up to you. Please go in peace. End this war now and receive God's blessings. Live in your own house and enjoy the fruits of your labor ..... Blessed are the peace makers ..... " The next morning, when I returned home from work, my little tethered animal was shot by someone from the Hoffinan household and had injuries so bad he had to be destroyed. Gillespies were never aware of any war. The

After receiving this note and by observation of Mr.

Hoffman's behavior, the phone calls he makes, when we pick up the receiver, no one answers, and the phone number is his, from the communications he has left the neighbors about us, it is apparent he has declared war against the Gillespies. The Gillespies do not want a war, only to

have Mr. Hoffinan properly fulfill the contract, properly ledger the account and divide the property.

I declare under the penalty of perjury pursuant to the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct.
