Failure to sentence Sheriff’s Officer ends in tragic drunken hit & run collision with injury

By Michael G. Stogner

In September of 2019, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Officer George Ismael pled guilty to gang related felonies involved in a notorious jail smuggling case, one in which he had supplied contraband cellphones and illegal drugs to an incarcerated inmate. Ismael had been out of custody and awaiting sentencing, for three years, when he allegedly caused a drunken hit & run traffic collision resulting in injury -in February of this year, 2022.                

                      

California sentencing law requires a felon be sentenced within 20 judicial days of pleading guilty, with a provision for an additional 10 days, should a required probation report not be ready within that time. Meaning Ismael should have been sentenced for his crimes, in October of 2019, and ideally been in custody, on parole or supervised probation, in 2022, and unable to further victimize the public. Yet he had remained unsentenced and out of custody, when the drunken hit & run traffic collision, one resulting in injury, had occurred.

Who dropped the ball? Not surprisingly, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, a person not unknown for self-aggrandizing press conferences & releases, has been eerily silent, on the matter.

Had DA Wagstaffe known of this outrageous 3 year delay in Justice and the drunken hit & run collision resulting in injury? How could the House of Wagstaffe not have, since his office had enabled the described delay, enjoining in a motion to continue the sentencing date, on at least one occasion, not arguing against it, in others, and had quietly filed charges against Ismael (absent fanfare, press conference or press release), after the February 2022 drunken hit & run collision.

Justice Delayed is Justice Denied

Hadn’t District Attorney Wagstaffe, in effect, given Ismael a pass, letting accountability drift through time, off into the fog of history, when the collision occurred? Hadn’t this failure to sentence provided Ismael with yet another opportunity to victimize the public?

DA’s Disingenuous (hollow) Proclamations

When Ismael had originally been charged, in the underlying cellphone & drug case, DA Wagstaffe had held a press conference and hyped just how dangerous to the public’s safety Ismael’s introduction of unmonitored cellphones and drugs to an inmate had been. However, this feigned concern over public safety is belied by Mr. Wagstaffe’s actions, in the matter, his Laissez-faire attention to Ismael’s sentencing, resulting in a 3 year & counting delay. Hadn’t DA Wagstaffe’s lack of due diligence in the matter enabled Ismael to once again victimize the public?

David Khan of Daly City vs. DDA Brian Donnellan in Court Today.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: March 4, 2022 12:45 PM DDA Brian Donnellan requested a Continuance stating that the arresting officer DCPD Detective Jose Ortega was not available due to Active Duty. It was only 4 days ago that Judge Elizabeth Hill set todays date. When was the last date DDA Donnellan had contact with his main witness?

This is a case to watch

NOTICE OF MOTION AND MOTION TO COMPEL DISCOVERY I can’t tell you how many times I have seen and heard the prosecutors in San Mateo County look straight at a judge and say they have already turned over all of the Discovery Evidence to the Defense when that is not the truth.

Why would David Khan continue to ask for it if he already received it, why would the PDP attorney that he dismissed make a statement that she received it and turned it over to Mr. Khan.

Why wouldn’t they simply give him another copy, if they already gave his attorney the evidence?

Fair and Level Playing Field, Right? Justice for All, Just tell the truth.

David Khan is representing himself in Court this morning, the charges against him are serious, he was appointed a Private Defender Attorney against his will, and he fought to dismiss her. He has remained consistent for the last 2 years. He has requested all of his personal property, Cash, Gold, MBZ, Guns, that the Daly City Police Department has taken from him.

Last week he was in Court making the same request with an additional item. He requested the District Attorney’s Office to provide him with the Discovery Evidence they have against him. Now you would think the prosecutors would have already done that right? His trial starts today,

Judicial Officer Honorable Judge Hill, Elizabeth M.

I must say that on February 28, 2022 Hon. Judge Elizabeth Hill treated David Khan with respect and patience and listened to everything he had to say that morning.

Even DDA Brian Donnelan suggested the Judge consider mental considerations, she would not. He knows what is about to happen to Mr. Khan.

For anyone who thinks representing yourself in court especially a criminal court means you don’t understand the system.

I have observed DDA Brian Donnelan is action before and I look forward to the David Khan case.

Candidate for Re-Election Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos doesn’t like to answer simple questions. He also doesn’t like to provide the Public with information that the public has a right to know.

Yesterday I asked him to confirm the identity of one George Ismael who was booked into San Mateo County Jail on December 24, 2021. The reason I was asking was that Carlos G. Bolanos has a very bad habit of witholding the Booking Photos, Names of “Those Who Matter” who happen to get arrested from the Daily Press/News Releases. It’s as if they never got arrested.

One of the very basic jobs the Sheriff’s Office does is Book people into the jail who are arrested by any law enforcement agency in San Mateo County. They keep a daily record and of course that information belongs to the public. The reason Carlos G. Bolanos does as he pleases is because the 5 County Supervisors couldn’t care less. It’s sort of their little secret, how Government really works.

Good morning Sheriff Bolanos

Can you please tell me if the George Ismael who was arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail on December 24, 2021 is the same George Ismael who was arrested with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez in 2014 for Smuggling 2 cellphones and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member who was an Inmate in Maguire Jail?

This is another perfect example of why I recommend ALL Booking Photos be released everyday. I wouldn’t have to bother you from your important work for this Public Information.

That You

As it turns out this is the same George Ismael that was arrested and Charged for Smuggling 2 Cellphones and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member in the San Mateo County Jail the same jail he was just booked into. Also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his management TEAM probably thought it would be better to not inform the Voters that George Ismael used to work for Sheriff Bolanos as a Correctional Officer.

You might remember that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was Falsely Charged with the exact same crime at the same time in 2014 even though all Investigators knew there was ZERO EVIDENCE connecting him to the crime. They didn’t care they thought it was funny.

Why would the Scott Peterson case be more important than Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case?

By Michael G. Stogner

Remember this is NOT a San Mateo County case.

Why would any one case be more important than any other case. Why is this case more important than the George Ismael or Aldon Smith cases.

Here is what San Mateo County Superior Court is doing for this one case.

22-SF-001696-A | The People of the State of California vs. GEORGE ISMAEL

He was arrested December 24, 2021 for Felony DUI Hit & Run

San Mateo County Sheriff and Candidate for Re-Election Carlos G. Bolanos did NOT provide a Booking Photo of issue at Press/News Release. Why?

At this moment the only thing I can report is a George Ismael was arrested on December 24, 2021 and booked into San Mateo County Jail. He is out on $150,000 bond.

I can not say this is the same George Ismael that was arrested in November 2014 with Sheriff Deputy for Smuggling two Cell Phones and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in the Redwood City Jail.

As everyone in San Mateo County should know by now those charges against Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez were completely FALSE.
