Zain Jaffer Case, Making San Mateo County Safer.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I have been working on Making San Mateo County Safer since 2000. I’ve always thought and I still do that Accurate and Honest Reporting and Data of Court Cases is a MUST in order to Make San Mateo County Safer for the Residents. The Zain Jaffer case is just one simple example I will give today.

Facts: October 15, 2017 4:00 AM Hillsborough, San Mateo County, California Zainali Jaffer 29 was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son.

He was never charged with Attempted Murder of a Child, by SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe.

Below is the Odyssey Portals Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo official record of Zain Jaffer’s court case. You will see the case was filed on Febraury 13, 2018. See if you can find the date the Preliminary Hearing was held? Also note this case was DISMISSED on July 2, 2018 that is FAST.
