Pertaining to Jose Maria "Chille" DeCastro aka Delete Lawz
Click the button above to learn more...
Jose Maria "Chille" DeCastro is a controversial vlogger and self-proclaimed "constitutional law scholar" who runs the YouTube channel "Delete Lawz". He sells products advising drivers of their constitutional rights during traffic stops, though he appears to have no formal legal training and is heavily influenced by the "sovereign citizen" (mis)understanding of case law.
DeCastro came to prominence on YouTube for his aggressive anti-police stance, generating criticism from social media influencers. He responded by threatening or filling lawsuits against his critics but has yet to demonstrate any merit. In addition he has filed civil rights lawsuits based on much publicized arrests in cases that are ongoing in criminal and civil court. As a result of his actions, he currently has outstanding warrants in Ohio and may be flagged in one as having the potential for 'violent tendencies.'
This website is a repository of public documents relating to his extensive legal history, including contacts with law enforcement, civil lawsuits and publicly reported business ventures.
It appears a criminal case has also been opened. More information will be posted as it becomes available. Criminal Case: D-09-CR-24-000572 Civil Case: D-09-CV-24-809545.
