Martin MacNeill director of UT State Developmental Center Arrested

Posted in By Linda, The MacNeill Story on December 4th, 2010 by admin – 2 Comments

Martin MacNeill who is now serving time in prison worked as the medical director at the Utah State Developmental Center.  He has called himself an MD at times and a DO at times.  He also has his JD from BYU, but he falsified transcripts from college to get into medical school and into the BYU law school.  He was even on probation from his felony conviction in Orange County when he attended medical school.  How does that happen?  This man was caring for the disabled at the developmental center?  How scary is that?  Did they not do a background check? How did he get jobs caring for people with a felony conviction in his past? How did he get into law school with a prior felony on his record?  Did he perhaps lie on his application?  Will there be a repercussion for that?    His entire life has been made of lies and more lies to cover those lies.


Fraud 1977 Martin MacNeill

Committing Fraud is nothing new for Martin MacNeill. In Orange County California in 1977 he was charged with 14 felony counts.  He selected a name from the county recorder’s record and then hired someone to obtain a copy of the birth certificate by swearing they were that person’s father.  Then he used that birth certificate and obtained a temporary driver’s license.  He then opened up a checking account with $50.  This led to a shopping spree over labor day weekend when banks were closed.  He stole over $30,000.  The newspaper article about the crime stated he got the idea from the TV show 60 minutes.  He then bragged to his friends that he could do it better.  The paper quoted people from the businesses he had passed the bad checks to as saying that he looked rich, didn’t look nervous at all, and he was very smooth.

He has led a double life for 32 years that I know of, but prior to 1977 who knows could be more?  I can only image what has gone on.  He plays his parts very well -intimidation and fear- the cocktail for don’t ask don’t tell.
