Former San Mateo Police Officer Noah Winchester Sentenced to 81 years to life.

920x920-4

Sexually assaulting five women while on duty.

This morning Jan 16, 2020, In San Mateo County Superior Court, 400 County Center Redwood City.
San Mateo County prosecutor Alpana Samant asked for 89 years to life in prison.  The defense asked for 10 years, 8 month state prison.  The Hon. Judge Lisa Novak sentenced Noah White Winchester to 81 years to life in prison.

22 charges were filed against a former San Mateo police officer accused of sexually assaulting five women while on duty.

This is still the big question for parents of Daughters, what do you tell them about interacting with Police Officers. Should they pull over right away if they get lit up or continue driving to a very public location. San Mateo County Law Enforcement and the Supervisors have never addressed this very serious issue. Perhaps they should.

Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Homicide. SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere got it right. 6 Involved Parties

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors met in Closed Session yesterday Jan. 14, 2020 to discuss settling the Maureen Okobi vs. San Mateo County and 5 of its 6 Employees case.

Maureen Okobi is the mother Chinedu Okobi who was legally walking down the sidewalk on the Millbrae side of El Camino Real at 1:00PM on Wednesday October 3, 2018. After interacting with SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees for 9:10 he was completely Unresponsive. When a monitor was put on him 10 minutes later it was Flatlined. At San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office closed to the public Press Conference on March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “What was the Manner of Death?” At that point he confirmed what SMCCO Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz reported in December 2018. Chinedu Okobi’s death was ruled a Homicide.

The only San Mateo County District Attorney Employee to Include SMCSO Employee civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales was SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere 80215

October 3, 2018 2:50PM

San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Trickett was the Incident Commander at the scene. He identified the “Involved Parties.”

Involved Parties:

Sergeant David Weidner

Deputy Joshua Wang

Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti

Deputy John Demartini

Deputy Bryan Watt

Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales

So the question is Who & How many San Mateo County Employees/Elected Officials had knowledge and were involved in the False Narrative of FIVE SMCSO INVOLVED PARTIES.

It’s pretty simple if you are willing to Falsify Police Reports, and produce 3 False Sheriff News Releases (Sheriff Carlos Bolanos & PIO Rosemary Blankswade) Why should the residents of San Mateo County believe anything you say or report?

Video prepared and provided by SMCDA on March 1, 2019

7:21 mark clearly shows CSO Joseph Gonzales spraying O.C. that equals Involved.

Get involved San Mateo County Residents, you are responsible for your elected officials behavior.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Top Two Investigators being Investigated. By Who?

By Michael G. Stogner

This might come as a surprise to the residents of San Mateo County but Attorneys file False Instruments with the Courts every single day, Would the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office do it? Sure it’s possible, lets find out. The District Attorney’s Office had 73 days to Investigate Massey and Warren, why the long delay. Who’s left in the D.A.’s office to conduct an Internal Investigation of the top two anyway?

Update: 1/10/2020 San Mateo County Counsel Attorney Joseph F. Charles appeared and his two clients D.A. Inspectors William Massey and John Warren remained outside the courtroom for several hours. They did not take the witness stand but never the less it was good to see them there. Mr. Charles asked for and got his Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 SEALED. Why would he ask for that?

Another attorney (female) from San Mateo Counsel Office representing the Five Sheriff Employees who were there to testify and one unnamed Sheriff Employee involved in a Belmont “incident” while not on duty many years ago, and had nothing to do with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ( according to her) was there to make sure the Belmont Police report was not only not made public but that Juan Lopez’s Attorneys could not see it either. The Judge temporarily SEALED it to give the Government time to file a motion to seal.

Note: Attorney David Washington sued the City of Belmont November 13, 2014 for not providing the Police Report involving Sgt. Jason Edward Peardon, I know this because I filed the suit and personally served the City of Belmont Attorney. The PADP did a story on it the next day, the attorney claimed the suit was unnecessary and a phone could have resolved this matter. Within a couple of days the City of Belmont retained a Law Firm across the bay and Never provided the Police Report.

The Statement by San Mateo County Counsel that “Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon has nothing to do with the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.” case is Laughable, He is the Juan Lopez case. Finally the Belmont Police Report surfaces only to be SEALED.

According to a Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 by Deputy Counsel Joseph F. Charles SBN 228456 in Case No. NF433910A former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. Mr. Lopez’s next court date is Tomorrow Jan. 09,2020 9:00AM SSF court Hon. Judge Danny Chou.

San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers Office just filed a motion Yesterday Jan. 7, 2020 to Quash Subpoenas for District Attorney’s Office Senior Inspector William Massey and Chief Inspector John Warren to testify tomorrow.

“In response to the October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint served by Defendant Lopez, the San Mateo County District Attorney Office has commenced an Internal Investigation into  the allegations made by Defendant in his October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint has recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.” This internal investigation subsumes all of the factual issues raised in the Citizen Complaint which include events that transpired as far back as 2015. More importantly Defendant’s criminal trial is likely to reveal the names of witnesses, events, information and additional evidence directly relevant to the District Attorney Office internal investigation into alleged misconduct (and potentially criminal misconduct) allegedly engaged in by law enforcement personnel.

How do they know when x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s underlying criminal trial is going to be completed?

What date was this Investigation opened and Who is conducting it?

Why wasn’t this Investigation opened several years ago when Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez filed a lawsuit with the exact same complaint?

thumbnail-2Senior Inspector John Warren, Lets hope this is on his off time.

Update 5:40 PM 1/8/2020 No response from San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers yet.

Michael:
I hope you also had a good holiday season.
As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

Best,

John

Skyline Road Homicides, The 90 Beat

 

 

Were the dumping of dead bodies, on Skyline Boulevard, foreseeable or something of that order inevitable? Did sheriff’s executives fail the community?

The geographic area of Skyline Boulevard, in unincorporated San Mateo County, was formerly assigned patrol deputies to provide line-level law enforcement services for each of the sheriff’s office’s shifts. It was known as the “90 Beat.” The position, that of a deputy sheriff providing patrol services, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, was fully funded for by the County Board of Supervisors and staffed by the sheriff.

Under then Sheriff Don Horsely & Undersheriff Greg Munks, staffing for this position was changed, with the deputies being removed (reassigned) and the funding being used to, first, pay for deputies assigned to East Palo Alto and, later, other pet projects of the sheriff. This practice was continued, first, by Munks who took Horsely’s position as sheriff, in 2007, and then Carlos Bolanos who was Illegally Appointed Sheriff July 12, 2016 by the Board of Supervisors and became elected Sheriff in June 2018 sworn in Janruary 2019.

In short, Horsley, Munks, and now Bolanos, respectively, made decisions to leave county residents who live at and about Skyline Boulevard unprotected, without a dedicated patrol officer, because they were deemed to have less of a need, even though the County Board of Supervisors fully fund the position and, I dare say, have the expectation that this was and is being done.

Could the two recent homicides, on Skyline Boulevard, be, in part, the result of no dedicated deputy sheriffs patrolling that area, providing an incentive for those that would engage in crime there? And, in that regard, couldn’t the resulting crimes have been foreseeable, inevitable, since there was no dedicated deterrent?

Did Horsely, Munks, or Bolanos ever inform area residents of their decision to divert resources? Did these residents not have an expectation their neighborhood was being staffed and protected by sheriff’s patrols?

Had a Deputy not been responding to an unrelated call for service and driven by and noticed the first body, how long would it have been before it was discovered? Shouldn’t County residents expect more from current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos? Has he shown the vision, decision making, results, and stewardship residents should expect from the chief executive officer of a $140,000,000 enterprise / budget? Certainly, this should be a question best put to the residents of the 90 Beat?

Another way to view this, isn’t such failure of leadership and results by Sheriff Bolanos foreseeable, given his past performance? Shouldn’t we both expect and be resigned to it?

Chinedu Okobi SMC Sheriff In-Custody Death Lawsuit filed. Key Defendant not included, Why?

17862588_1618867384820560_4466109734454003179_n

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Attorney John Burris filed a lawsuit Friday May 31, 2019 representing Maureen Okobi mother of Chinedu V. Okobi who died in Millbrae, October 3, 2018 In-Custody of SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Four Deputies, one Sergeant and one Civilian. The Civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales was very involved in the physical take down of Chinedu Okobi and can be clearly seen in the District Attorney’s video at the 7:18 mark dispensing O.C. Spray. You will also notice on the Government’s Video they don’t mention CSO Joseph Gonzales either. So he was not investigated period, Why? The D.A.’s Office treated him as a Witness.

Lawsuit 

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Video

March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe held a private Press Conference for select media, public not welcome. At around 8 minutes into the presentation he stated the Cause of Death by the pathologist to be “Cardiac Arrest”. Reporter Julie Small of KQED asked about 40 minutes later “Do you know the manor of death?” Wagstaffe responded “The Coroner of this County labeled it Homicide.” Why didn’t he say that at the beginning? He went on to say “Homicide occurring during Interaction with that Individual.” That means with the Six Employees.

KQED reported that Dr. Rogers determined the cause of Death to be Homicide. I reported that Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 determined cause of Death to be Homicide.
