Zain Jaffer ex Vungle CEO has Preliminary Hearing Transcripts SEALED.

Why? Seven months after the alleged hearing, the reason I say that is there is no record in the court files of the Preliminary Hearing on January 31, 2018. I had to ask Deputy Chief Karen Guidotti if it in fact took place. Here is her response e-mail.

Hello Karen.

Can you please tell me the date the preliminary hearing was held in the Zain Jaffer case?

Thank You

We now know that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent this e-mail to the Palo Alto Daily Post Reporter on the day of the Preliminary Hearing. To my knowledge the Newspaper did not print this information.

Hi Emily,

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor:

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.”

John Ullom Co-owner of Citizen Access TV and a very good concerned citizen of San Mateo County inquired about the price of the Transcripts. He learned today from San Mateo County Counsel attorney Dan Valim that the Transcripts he was interested in have been Sealed this week by Mr. Jaffer’s attorney. Why?

The readers should know there were 5 victims, 2 children, a grandfather, Police Officer and another professional. So there is 2 Child Abuse, & 1 Elder Abuse.

History: October 15, 2018 Zain Jaffer was arrested at his home in Hillsborough California at 4 AM charged with 7 felonies including Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was quick to dismiss the Attempted Murder Charge.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

July 2, 2018 The entire Criminal case was plucked out of the legal process by San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Deputy Chief Karen Guidotti, Sean Gallagher, and Deputy DA Sharon Cho, Could not have been done without Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt, a former prosecutor for Wagstaffe, approving the motion to dismiss. The entire process from arrest to entire case dismissed 8 months.

San Mateo County has Failed to protect the Children and the Elder.

The Zain Jaffer case should be audited.

Update – Here is the motion filed:

Z.J. Prelim Hearing Transcript 1Z.J. Prelim Hearing Transcript 2

Update: 8/6/2018 The signature is that of Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt The same judge that granted the motion to dismiss the entire case on July 2, 2018.

I was unable to determine which Judge signed this order, The Judges name and Dept should be printed below every signature. I asked the top 2 at the District Attorney’s Office to identify the Judge. Here are the e-mails

Mr. Stogner:  I do not know who signed the order.  As you stated, there is no name typed below the signature, and the signature does not clearly show the judge’s name.

Good morning Karen and Steve

 

Please tell me the name of the judge who signed the Seal order. I am unable to recognize it from my copy.

 

We have compared it to the entire rooster, It would be nice if the name was printed below the signature.

Thank You
