Andras Plank Criminal Case Dismissed, How much did SMC Taxpayers pay for that case?

By Michael G. Stogner

I’ve said this was a case to watch, and now that it was DISMISSED after 4 years in San Mateo County Criminal Court. I recommend this case be Audited to see if the Private Defender Program did what is expected of it.

This was a Vandalism charge, and for 4 years the Defendant Andras Plank had been requesting to see the Body Worn Camera Video evidence from the San Mateo Police Department. That BWC video was finally provided on 8/11/2022. Let me just say this, Body Worn Camera Video’s should be made available to the defendant as soon as a person is charged.

How much money did San Mateo County Taxpayers invest in both the Prosecution and the Defense in this case? Remember it was DISMISSED.
