Joseph F. Charles, is Fine with it.

By Michael G. Stogner

Joseph F. Charles

It’s been 19 months since Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was executed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez on May 5, 2020 in a parking lot located at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County.

The San Mateo County Government provided a Critical Incident Video about 40 days after the Homicide. This video was created by San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd who labeled it as “unaltered” when if fact it had been altered. The Video shows Sandra Lee Harmon being shot at while unarmed and hands above her head with her back towards Deputy Dominguez. No labeling saying Deputy fired at unarmed woman. Fact Ms. Harmon was shot in the back three times all fatal.

If the County, the District Attorney, and the Sheriff of San Mateo County had determined in their investigation that Dominguez acted properly, they would never have altered the video and attempted to present it as unaltered; they would have just been honest. And there simply is no justification in any reasonable investigation to fail even to request records pertaining to Dominguez’ body cam. If Dominguez had acted with a true police objective there would be no need for the false reports, the underhanded editing of the video, nor the fear that Dominguez’ camera may hold relevant evidence.

It is Illegal to file a False Police report.

Joseph F. Charles knows this information and couldn’t care less. He’s fine with it, he is a San Mateo County Counsel Attorney.

This is what he says about himself.

UPDATED NOVEMBER 22, 2021 Public Access Policy Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.

San Mateo County Superior Court is committed to continuing public access to court proceedings during and after the pandemic emergency. Due to COVID-19 and public health concerns, the Court has shifted to convene some court proceedings remotely in order to eliminate the need for individuals to attend hearings in person. This is to reduce the number of visits by the public to the courthouses, thereby minimizing potential infection of the public and staff. 

At this time, members of the public may attend a court proceeding in person. The Court is committed to maintaining a safe workplace for our staff and the public. Each courtroom can accommodate a different number of seats in the audience. You will need to check-in with the bailiff when you enter the courtroom. The bailiff will inform you as to whether or not there is an available seat, or if capacity has been reached. If capacity has been reached, you may remain outside the courtroom until someone leaves. Face coverings are required at all times inside the courthouse.

Zoom may not be used for public access without the approval of the judicial officer.

Broadmoor Police Commissioner J. Wayne Johnson R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

J. Wayne Johnson R.I.P. passed away on June 10, 2017. This is the first time I am writing about him because last week was the first time I heard or read anything about him. From what I can tell he was a FINE man.

He was a Broadmoor Police Commissioner (one of three) when he was arrested and his home was searched and personal property taken by the Broadmoor Police Department.

The part that caught my attention was later he discovered that the Arrest and Search Warrant was NOT signed by any Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo Judge.

That means the Broadmoor Police Department committed a crime against J. Wayne Johnson, in 2015.

A reasonable person would know that being fraudulently/falsely arrested and falsely accused of crimes would cause stress issues, financial issues etc. J. Wayne Johnson was 75 years old when this assault against him occurred. He died less than four months after a Judge in San Francisco said his case could Proceed.

What did San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe do about the Broadmoor Police Officers producing a False Arrest and Search Warrant……..The answer is NOTHING.

Notice Of Motion And Motion For Summary Judgment Matter on calendar for Friday, February 17, 2017, Line 7, Motion For Summary Judgment. (Part 2 of 2).

summary adjudication on the third cause of action is denied because a triable issue exists whether there was probable cause to support the search warrant.

As to the fifth cause of action for violation of the Bane Act, Mr. Johnson has established a triable issue whether the defendants took coercive actions against him by promising to drop their investigation if he resigned.

As to the seventh cause of action for false arrest, there is a triable issue whether the search warrant was based on probable cause and consequently a triable issue exists as to the validity of any arrest based on evidence obtained during the execution of the search warrant.

As to the eighth cause of action for intentional infliction of emotional distress, a triable issue exists whether the search warrant was supported by probable cause and whether the alleged retaliatory constitutional violations constitute outrageous conduct.

X 49er Aldon Smith BAC was reported to be .288

By Michael G. Stogner

21-SM-014538-A

This is a “Those who Matter” case, San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provided NO BOOKING PHOTO or PRESS/NEWS RELEASE of the arrest. Why?

That is the first Tell. The 2nd Tell is Defense Attorney Josh Bentley, The 3rd Tell District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe filed this case as a Misdemeanor 21-SM instead of a 21-SF which is a FELONY.

Smith declined a field sobriety test but later took a blood test that showed a blood-alcohol content of .288 percent, District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe confirmed Thursday. Smith spent the night in jail. (source San Jose Mercury News Michael Nowels)

By declining a sobriety test at the scene, you forfeit California Drivers License for 1 year, unless you are one of the “Those Who Matter” TEAM.

If he was a BAC of .288 why is he charged with a 0.08?

San Mateo County has a First Chance DUI program for 1st time offenders. To my knowledge it does not have a 4th or 5th Chance DUI Program.

San Mateo County does have Defense Attorney Josh Bentley, Watch this case, it is going to be exciting.

TMZ was the first to report the arrest on December 6, 2021.

When I say watch this case, I mean show up to Court IN PERSON. A reasonable thinking person would know that there is a COVID-19 Pandemic in San Mateo County at this time. Listening by phone to the Court Hearings would be a lot safer you would think. Superior Court of California County of San Mateo Presiding Judge Leland Davis III thinks just the opposite. He cancelled Public Access by Telephone on November 22, 2021.

If you do attend the next Court date don’t be surprised if Aldon Smith and Josh Bentley appear remotely for safety reasons. Who would blame them. Stay Safe

Next court date January 4, 2022
