DDA Ben Blumenthal refuses to answer questions about him prosecuting Jody Williams. Depositions will be exciting.

There is a new Policy at San Mateo County’s District Attorney’s Office since the July 2, 2018 Zain Jaffer case being plucked/extracted from the legal process. DDA Sharon Cho answered several reporters questions about that case. Now Nadia and Ben have both given me the exact same response ask Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti.

 

 

This is who Jody Williams is, She needs to be Protected.

Re: CRISIS REGARDING JUVENILE SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS ANONYMITY

Dear Mr. Walsh and Ms. McBride:

I’m sure you each know Lois Lee founded Children of the Night’s hotline, and program, in 1979. The reason why she did was the same reason I created the first safe house for adult sex trafficking victims in 1984 – that was in response to a “perfect storm” of events which were targeting men, women and children who were involved in the sex industry. She however created her program for juveniles, while I tried to help adults in the best way I could.

For me, that was to create the first screening service for prostitutes which I marketed around to the madams, as well as individual escorts, who were trying to protect themselves. Not from arrest mind you – but from the very real fact we had a record number of serial killers targeting prostitutes in LA back then. A situation that was created by the flooding of cocaine into the state because of what we now know as Iran Contra. Combined with the invention of cell phones, and beta, and then VCR’s, which allowed men to stay up all night in their homes smoking crack and watching hard core porn which frankly made them all either nuts and/or violent or both.

On top of this, I was dealing with the very real fact we had men like Chuck Barris producing the “Dating Game” which was nothing more than a cover for him to get American women onto planes voluntarily, to then go to countries they’d never heard of before – many of who were never heard from again. Try taking that to the local police station and see how far you get talking about a top producer in town marketing women all over the world using their audition tapes like a catalog and try to convince them to follow up on why Janie didn’t come back from her date to some country you can’t pronounce.

Further, try and convince the police that our own CIA agents are the ones bringing in boat loads of cocaine into LA and only using the gang members as “cover” while forcing them to be their “distribution” network so as to keep their hands clean. Not only keep their hands clean, but go on and on about the “gang crisis in the media to get grants coming to build CRASH units – who then use those CRASH units to further intimidate men into

turning their 10 year old sons into drug mules because juvenile courts no longer prosecute juveniles for drug trafficking.

Then try and get the police to help you stop diplomatic planes who have drugged up prostitutes on board who are being taken to some country that sells us oil because some sultan has a thing for “white girls”, while the CIA man explains she’s “doing this in service of her country because she’s a worthless piece of shit otherwise”. To top it off, you learn that there’s not one single law against the trafficking of American women. That if these victims do make it to an American embassy – they’re refused any help because they’re “criminals” after all as “prostitutes”.

So while Lois was handling the juveniles, I was handling helping adults WHEN NO ONE ELSE WOULD. It’s why I took a warehouse I had da leave on I didn’t need anymore because I was no longer working as aprostitute, and turned it into a safe house. The only one in the country for adults. Not even the Mary Magdelene Project would take in someone who was (1) escaping a pimp and needed security, (2) had any mental health issues, (3) had any felony convictions, (4) had any children or pets, (5) had any assets, (6) had used drugs in the last 90 days, (7) had any pending warrants, and/or (8) if they were victims of organized crime’s sex trafficking. Meaning that essentially the Mary Magdalene Project would take in about 4 women who didn’t really need any help and let them stay in the house while they went to school.

What about the rest? That’s why I had the warehouse. Only a lot of people weren’t happy about the fact once we got them into the warehouse, they were never heard from again. Including LAPD who had tried unsuccessfully to plant drugs on me a few times. So our warehouse had not only beds, a TV, and a kitchen, but also high security with bars on the windows, as well as a closed circuit TV which would broadcast back to me at home what was going on outside the warehouse. Which was useful when these men would try and storm the place by climbing up to the second story on ladders to try and break in – which is what happened more than once.

To shut me down, I was framed. So I’m very sensitive to that issue. I’ve had LAPD try and plant drugs on me that weren’t mine. Thank God my mother believed me that the pound of cocaine she found under my bed one day wasn’t mine, and she flushed it before the cops could get there with a search warrant. Thank God the heroin that was put into my car’s glove compartment she found before the cops released me to get into that car,only to stop me searching for that heroin so they could arrest me. In desperation, they got a junkie on probation to lie and say I was “pimping” her out of the warehouse. She called me up black and blue asking I take her away from the pimp. Which I did, and then the cops arrested me for pimping her.

Without one shred of evidence, I could have beat the cast. But they took a photo of my mother handing me a bucket of chicken and me handing her a $20 bill, and for that, they charged my disabled mother with pimping me. Then told me if I didn’t agree to take a plea, they’d charge her with pimping me. I thought the photo was silly and certainly a jury would acquit us. So they then threatened to arrest my 70 year old grandmother for the washing machine I’d bought her the year before, showing the receipt as proof she was guilty of “receiving earnings from a prostitute”. Needless to say, to protect my grandmother, and mother, I played ball somewhat.

The warehouse was shut down. Clearly having a safe house wasn’t going to work for those reasons. Since the truth about Iran Contra, and Chuck Barris, and everything else I was dealing with back then didn’t come to the light of day for years and years, it was the right decision for that time. But by 1986, we had a full blown AIDS epidemic on our hands. Why? Because with all the crack downs on prostitutes LAPD had been doing, no one was thinking about doing any type of outreach to us about the disease. With prostitutes afraid to carry condoms because they were used as “evidence against them of prostitution”, LAPD made the problem worse.

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 2

By 1986, with talk of quarantining us on an island, the state was willing to talk to us about a solution for the first time in history. I sat down in 1986 with California’s Attorney General, Edwin Meese, Mayor Tom Bradley, Sheriff Block and Chief Gates to come up with a solution. They were the ones who sold me on all the advantages of what we could accomplish by forming a 12 step program. By 1987, I had put everything together to launch the first hotline for adults to call for help when leaving any part of prostitution, for any reason (we didn’t have the term “sex trafficking even invented back then), and the related 12 step program which allowed us to provide alternatives to incarceration as well as diversion programs for the first time in history.

To date, I’ve answered over 500,000 calls on that hotline. Many of those calls were from juveniles as you know. Juveniles who I’ve always promptly turned over to Lois Lee to handle. I was trained in how to answer this hotline by the domestic violence people, the suicide hotline, the rape crisis hotline, and even the Narcotics Anonymous hotline. So I knew what the laws were regarding when I had to report incidents of child abuse, as well as when a child was in danger of being harmed. In the 32 years now I’ve answered this phone, not one lawsuit by the way, nor has anyone even filed a complaint of a problem connected to our hotline.

In fact, in 1995, we went onto a Sally Show about a mother I had helped to rescue her daughter by suggesting she dress up like a hooker to try and find her when the police refused to provide any help. Using my methods of obtaining intelligence, she found her daughter. She also was able to get the pimp arrested who had murdered two other women. Once the show was taped, producers came down to sign contracts with us to make a movie.That film was “Fighting for my Daughter” with Lindsey Wagner. This was about the 5th movie made about my work by then, on top of the three documentaries I’ve had made about us, and who knows how many talk shows.

While I don’t go out of my way to target juveniles, and I don’t allow them into our 12 step meetings, I do come across situations where children are involved from time to time. Which is why when I was targeted and recruited by a trafficking operation who employed sheriffs, cops, judges, private investigators, 911 operators, guards, etc., and I identified also they were targeting young women for this who were as young as 12 years old, I tried to do something to get those women, and their children help.

The only problem was many of them were being held in private homes, and we couldn’t get at them in the “usual” stings. Like with the mother in Canada, she pretended to be a prostitute until she found her daughter. Once she found her daughter, she was lucky enough to be able to call the local police to go and get her out of the hotel room. HOWEVER, in some cases we’ve found there are some officers on the police force who are actually part of the traffickers. In those situations, we can’t just call the local police. A mistake I made when I went to the Chief of Police for Las Vegas in 2006, Chief Gillespie.

When I turned the file over to him with names, addresses, descriptions of people, explanations of how everything operated, etc., and specifically asked him to help us get at a young 16 year old girl who was being pimped out by a service called “Pretty Maids”, as well as told him about other locations that were full of“minority” women, such as the house with nothing but Hispanic women, and the house full of Asian women – all that happened was every single shred of evidence onto what I’ve provided him was cleaned up down to the bleach on the floors.

Now I had consulted with other police officers about the houses that comprised “Operation Dollhouse” back then. I was brushed off with them saying, “Without probable cause, we can’t get a search warrant”. Only the only clients these houses would admit were men who had flown into the airport speaking Mandarin with tickets showing they had arrived from China. Metro didn’t have any undercover officers, male or female, who spoke Mandarin. So I’ve ALWAYS attempted to work with the authorities the best way that I can all these years.

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 3

Which is why I appealed to the Salvation Army, as well as Melissa Farley. We needed resources. I needed translators. I needed someone willing to arrest another cop/sheriff. We needed an office – not me calling from my mobile home I lived in at that time. During that time, I was caring for my dying mother who was in ICU and my young daughter. I was recovering from a major stroke, so we needed man power also.

All of which I was promised. Melissa promised we could launch NCAST – IF and I say IF I agreed to let her do a report on our work for the State Dept., so they could give us a grant. The Salvation Army agreed to give us $1,000,000 to open ATLAS, with me as the director. Because Terri Miller had no experience with prostitutes or trafficking, I was supposed to train her and then let her take over so I could work part-time to care for my mother and focus on taking care of my own health issues.

The ONLY catch was NO ONE was believing me about cops being involved. It was only a few years before that the G Sting arrests had gone down. To think that the city council, the strip club owner, and celebrities like George Clooney, Robert DeNiro, etc., were involved in not only this prostitution network, but arms dealings reaching down into San Diego – well at least Daniel Boden had gotten involved and gotten that case prosecuted. But that was only a few years before this story was coming up.

Realize that 2006-2007 was BEFORE Chris Butler had been caught and exposed to the press. Lots of people knew about what he was doing, but no one was prosecuting him over it. So please put into perspective that I’m talking about cops putting drug evidence into their cars, and then driving them to illegal brothels, where they’re the ones pimping these prostitutes – ALL BEFORE CHRIS WAS EXPOSED for what he was doing. Then you have an idea how absolutely out of my mind I sounded to a lot of people talking about this in 2006.

Only the Salvation Army said they believed me, and if we could “get an arrest” and “some kind of evidence”, then they’d put even more into helping these victims. Okay, how do we do that? I know where the victims are. But the cops aren’t going to arrest anyone BECAUSE THEY’RE THE ONES INVOLVED. The other cops aren’t going to touch the case because they don’t want to expose their buddies, or themselves for that matter. Look at Norman’s story where he says he was being “blackmailed” by Butler.https://abc7news.com/archive/9110103/ He wasn’t alone.

When I had gone to Gillispie, an 8 month old pregnant woman showed up at my mom’s house asking for refuse. She was worried with them “cleaning house”, they’d leave her in the desert somewhere, so she’d run to me forhelp. This woman was 20 years old or I would have called Lois for help. But she tells me there’s others who are pregnant, and “even a kid” referring to those houses where the women were in what was later called “Operation Dollhouse”.

To make matters more urgent, I had women coming to me talking about a string of prostitute murders. Jesse Foster was not unique in 2007. There were about 7 other women who had gone missing, each in connection with Peter Todd. So on top of hearing about a lot of women disappearing, I’m also getting calls about a man who had just moved into Summerlyn who was also getting involved in organ trafficking. I had verified this man was not only living in that very expensive house by the hospital, but that he was in fact licensed and set up as a medical equipment sales representative who actually was selling the equipment used in organ transplants.

This same guy owns a movie company that’s advertising in China about the movies being made in Las Vegas so that many of these Asian women, who don’t know any better that these movies aren’t real, so some of these women were coming to Vegas in the first place thinking they were here to make a movie. Then winding up in a brothel, and apparently some of them were wanting a profitable way to dispose of the bodies. I have relayed all of this information to Melissa Farley, and we agreed that we needed to “move fast” to do something to break up this operation.

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 4

I want you to understand the urgency that I was feeling when I heard there was going to be a drop in Vegas that weekend that was “Operation Dollhouse”. I had been working on someone within Butler’s operation to go to the press, which succeeded. So it wasn’t that hard to get a reporter to ask to do a “ride along” with Metro on that weekend, knowing we were waiting until someone in uniform showed up and then we could launch the raid.

The plan had already been set up and agreed upon that the victims would be taken to the Salvation Army, instead of the jail, so that they would feel safe enough to talk about what was going on. That was evidenced by the fact the 24 women were taken to the Salvation Army which was what ATLAS and NCAST had been calling upon Metro to do in such a situation.

So you can understand how upset I was when I arrive at the Salvation Army thinking we’re going to interview these women because they’re going to be held 72 hours which was mandatory immigration law to hold them for questioning – but they were released before I could even arrive? I didn’t go to the houses where the raids were because honestly I was afraid if I was there, and anyone connected with the traffickers saw my face and recognized me – they’d bolt. I wanted everyone to be caught “red handed” so they’d believe us as to who and what was involved. Remember, this operation was going on in California, up to Seattle on the west coast, and then up through Las Vegas, then over to Arizona, and on through to the east coast and then back again. I know because I would talk to these men during these “drop and pickups” when they thought they were recruiting me to come to work for them.

Clearly, someone in ICE, Homeland Security and the trafficking task force had to be involved in this network for it to work. And clearly someone was because not only were the two sheriffs who were on site, and then released, despite the mandatory immigration laws, despite the fact drugs were seized, and also despite a juvenile and a pregnant woman being caught on sight – and frankly, if I hadn’t been chased off the property, discounted, ignored, smeared, and shut out of the process – we could have ended the whole matter and exoronerated both Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos in one afternoon because I would have asked for either their body camfootage, or I would have asked to see their drivers’ footage.

All cabs and limos in Vegas at that time had cameras on 24/7 because of a rash of drivers who were being robbed and burned up. They also had GPS devices on at all times because of the murders. I was demanding the press “check the cameras” and “check the GPS devices” and frankly if someone had listened to me then – we could have exonerated those two sheriffs by now. When I was chased off the property and told to “get lost”, Terri told me she’d “handle it”. If she had, that footage and GPS records would have exonerated those men by now. Also, that juvenile would have received assistance that day.

But because of all this, I knew there was someone higher up involved and there was. Joohon David Lee. Only I had the same problem again – no one was believing me that this guy was going to China on government money and time, flying over victims he was walking right past security, and then taking them right to the brothels to be trafficked – all while not only immune from prosecution, but further while terrorizing an innocent family. I had to endure YEARS of that man trying to tell anyone who listened that “Jody is crazy” until finally Daniel Bogden I know, along with the Office of Professional Responsibility, finally did something to expose him.

What you don’t realize however is how many juveniles call our hotline to talk. There is no other hotline like ours that provides them with another ex-sex worker, who is in recovery, who will answer the phone and talk to them at 2:00 in the morning. Nor one that’s not shut down in a year because of a lack of funding. I have people who have been calling our hotline for 30 years now!

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 5

We are LITERALLY the only hotline where a victim of sex trafficking can call us knowing we aren’t connected up to the very people they’re running from, nor that we will give up their information to the very person(s) they’re running from. Do you realize I once had a young lady calling me from the age of 16 years old until she was 18 years old and could legally leave the group home, calling to talk to me about the cops who were trafficking her out in the streets? Yes information I was providing to Lois who was looking into trying to find this girl. The only problem is then what? We found the house who of course was denying everything.

We talk a lot of kids through tough times on the phone who are in horrible group homes, foster homes, etc., but we try and get them emotionally through it. A lot of times these juveniles don’t call Lois or now Rachel Lloyd, because they don’t want to be put into a group home.
My point being that yes we have information in our private email accounts that belongs to juveniles. Juveniles who are like Celeste Guap was before she turned 19 years of age, and who were being blocked from the trafficking outreach projects by their traffickers. Do you grasp that? Her mother was the 911 operators, so these guys had tabs on anyone who called 911. When she came out, the town went through Three Chiefs of Police and STILL couldn’t find someone who hadn’t patronized her. Let’s use the right term – RAPED her. So while she’s being blocked from getting help, trying to protect her mother, and staying put so no one freaks out and harms her mother, who does she have to talk to for support?” I can’t say if that woman called us or not but don’t you think it’s a safe logical bet she would have?

When Nancy O’Malley held an event on juvenile sex trafficking, she asked Lois Lee to speak. Lois asked me to go and speak. I went to Nancy and offered to speak because I wanted to talk about the kids who are afraid to call the local trafficking authorities who were blocking women like her from getting help, to see what could be done about it. She then refused to return my calls, let alone let me talk about the issues? Why? Considering everything, probably to try and protect the county from the lawsuit Celeste filed. But again in the meantime, what about her?

I have all kinds of people contacting me of all ages telling me all kinds of stories. But we provide them with someone again who understand them and empathizes with them. None of which we can do if these same victims are concerned that their emails and calls are going to be turned over to the very people who are trafficking them. If law enforcement needs information from me as to a case they’re working on, that’s what warrants and subpoena’s are for.

But I doubt I’d get calls like I get if those who call me are scared about their confidentiality being violated. Let me give you an example in the Neal Falls case – I get a call from a woman who reports to me she knows the prostitute who shot Neal. Her phone number is showing up as being at Heather’s house where the incident took place. She told me she made the call from the house to show me she was telling the truth.

She told me to verify this so I’d take her seriously. Then she tells me that Neal Falls wasn’t a “john”. That he’d seen that “8 Minutes” show and like a lot of guys who saw it back then, they were trying to go out and “rescue damsels in distress”. Supposedly Neal called her up to try and talk her out of prostitution and offered to help her. That Heather murdered this guy. Not only then did Heather murder this guy, but supposedly when the FBI showed up, THEY decided to change the story and make Heather a “hero” like they did.

This person asked me if there was one shred of DNA evidence showing this guy was tied to any of those murders they laid on him. She also asked me what “prostitute” is immediately credited as a “hero” when the cops come out and find a dead man like was done here? What witnesses were they and why would she go running next door to call for help when she had a phone in the house she could have used. The news said he“had no money in his wallet” but how do we know it wasn’t because she stole that money?

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 6

When I asked her why she was telling me this, she told me she was afraid for Heather’s life. Supposedly women from Relativity Media and SWOP had shown up with cash and drugs. Offered her $17,000 to sign a contract giving up the rights to her name and image, as well as an NDA. They had promised her a movie and book deal about the whole thing IF she agreed to lie and say she “murdered him in self defense”. Gave her drugs to keep her from talking to the press, and then checked her into treatment somewhere that no one was being told where she was. This woman expressed fear something had been doin

Now mind you, I have all of this on tape. I asked her why she was calling me. She tells me that Heather has“disappeared” and she’s worried she was murdered to keep her quiet about Neal Falls. Why would someone murder her? If you looked at the TV special put out by Relativity Media, they were laying a lot of murders onto Neal Falls without one shred of DNA evidence or an eye witness. Great way to wrap up a bunch of unsolvedcases about prostitutes in Las Vegas doesn’t it? I looked into her story and found out it was true. On top ofthis, when I tried to identify where “Heather” was, she was nowhere to be found. When I pushed harder, I started getting threats to “back off”. To make things more interesting, I contacted the Chicago police and the ones there and there’s no one drop of DNA evidence anywhere showing anything that ties Neal to any of the murders. Including no blood on any of the new tools in his car. Now let me ask you, what serial killer operates out of his car and takes in stray dogs? I’ve never heard of one that’s for sure. In fact, his personality doesn’t fit that of a prostitute killer at all.

Would this person call the National Trafficking Hotline at midnight to unload? I doubt it. But I now had a tape that could have been, in fact might be, important in a murder case, or even multiple cases. I don’t know, but I did what I’m supposed to do and I turned over the tapes of the calls to the authorities to investigate further, and told them if they had questions to please call me again. For all I know, the caller was under 18 years of age. I don’t know because I can’t tell an age over the phone. But what if this was a case involving a missing juvenile?

What if whoever got into my emails got information on where a juvenile is and that juvenile is murdered? It happens. Think it doesn’t – think again. For that matter, no one has seen “Heather” since that first rash of news reports.

Because what just went down against me was staged from the gate. In April, I get a call from a guy telling me he’s an alcoholic who wants help to get his buddy sober. Of course I’m going to try and help the guy. I literally spent a month trying to help him track down his “homeless buddy” who was in Colorado, and to get him into some kind help to get into treatment.

After I helped this guy get connected to another “old timer” in AA in that city, this guy continued to talk to me about his divorce. He was asking me to work on his divorce as a paralegal. I kept refusing. I told him he could afford an attorney and to go get one. When I refused to help him, he insisted on coming to Vegas to meet with me in person. Of course I didn’t meet with him, and that’s when he increased the ante. He starts talking about he can “help me build a business” and about how he can get me 100 clients a month, and yada yada yada – but he “needs to have a business meeting with me to go over the details”. I still refused.

Mind you, I know that these pimps will use ANY type of a ruse to get close to me in order to find out where their victims have run off to – so this guy was just making me suspicious. He could afford an attorney if he could fly to Vegas, so why was he chasing me? Then he offered to “open a real estate business” with me – but we “needed to meet”. That’s when I really smelled a rat and refused to meet with him. He kept insisting he “had to show me his divorce papers” and then I’d “know I needed to help him” because of what a “monster his ex-wife’s attorney was”. Fine I told him – drop off the papers at my box and I’ll look at them. But he wouldn’t because he kept insisting he “needed to hand them to me”. Now I really won’t meet this guy.

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 7

HE STAYS OVER TWO MORE DAYS trying to convince me to meet him. I refuse. Politely, but I refused. Understand this, he left Las Vegas on July 10th finally. On July 12th , this bogus search warrant was issued against my personal email – not for “business emails” or “excluding personal emails”, but ALL emails. I’m not going to go into whose emails were in there, but know this – there were SWA members and reporters emails in that email during the dates my emails were seized by this DA in San Mateo County.

Here’s something else to consider – George Knapp had just uncovered that maybe Alisha Grundy had been forced to lie about Ray Sharpe by Chris Baughman. An FBI investigation is supposedly going on reviewing the case. I have Ray telling me she lied as well as Gena telling me she lied on the stand. I also have a hand-written letter supposedly from Alisha to the judge saying she lied. If she lied, it was because she was scared into it by Chris Baughman, a Metro cop, or the DA, who was his wife.

If this case is like the Celeste Guap case, how do we know if she wasn’t coerced or threatened into lying? She has a juvenile daughter and that’s a real easy way to threaten someone. When I had information on Jessie Foster’s murder and I was trying to get Terri Miller to take that information and look into it, and she refused, I went to the FBI. There an agent threatened me with a 5150 charge, and then taking my kid if I didn’t “drop it. I dropped it. So a kid is a real good way to threaten someone. Or a mother like my case. If Celeste hadn’t gone to the media, do you think we’d be talking about her story today?

But what if Alisha did lie? Is she going to be able to stay clean with a man in prison for life on her shoulders?She’s going to need someone safe she can talk to who understands what she did. A therapist? That’s not up to us to decide. It’s not up to the government to decide. It’s up to HER to decide if she needs to talk to someonelike us about what happened in order for her to heal and move on with her life. Maybe she needs to make an“amends” and come clean. I don’t know but we won’t know will we unless we can offer Alisha complete 100% confidentiality when she does come to talk to us about her situation, if that’s what she choose to do.

How can I encourage her to do that knowing that San Mateo County’s DA has now gotten into our emails illegally? I say “illegally” because I was never served with this lawsuit so a seizure warrant on my emails unedited like this should never had been signed by a judge. I say that because there was no complaint filed by a victim against me. Without a complaint, how do we know it’s even me and not some other Jody Williams? There was no police report. How does a seizure warrant get executed when there was no police report? How does it get sealed? How does a search warrant get executed and sealed on 7/12/18, when the bench warrant for my non-appearance wasn’t even executed until 8/8/18?

This whole case is a setup. While the “complaint” isn’t signed by anyone, and the witness is sealed, the signature matches the signature on the legal documents this guy from San Mateo County sent me about his divorce. So I know who signed this “complaint”. It was the attorney Barbara Kuehn. So an attorney who is involved in a divorce case, for which I’m not a party, went to the DA and got all this done and sealed and why? Because she thinks I was “practicing law without a license”? Okay, why not just do discovery for the guys’ emails instead? Simple. Cheap. Not invading my privacy or my other private emails. So why didn’t the DA do this?

Do you have any idea how many women leaving prostitution wind up divorcing not only their pimps, but their kids’ father? You mean all the pimps’ attorney needs to do is to go to the DA, and they can go yank my emails between me and his ex-wife and find out where she’s gone with the kids and there’s nothing I can do about it?

I don’t think so and all this does is keep me going back to the fact Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos were never investigated nor exonerated about why they were there in that house that day. WHAT IF, and just hypothetically, WHAT IF those men WERE the “drop off team” sent there by the ring that Chris Butler was apart of?

 

NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING CHILDREN – PAGE 8

Now what if, those men, concerned that I might be talking to a witness against them, as well as Chris Baughman, worried I’m talking to Alisha Grundy – what if they wanted to get into my email to get at information on a victim who could testify against them? What if they wind up dead tomorrow? There’s a reason why things like getting emails out of my private account are done a certain way. I’m suing Google so how do I know that any emails they produce aren’t planted? If LAPD can plant drugs on me, so too can Google for that matter. On me, or on the victims who are emailing us back and forth.

In this case, I know this man was sent in as a plant. It’s clear they bought by me not knowing about the warrant, I’d be arrested, then plead guilty to get out of jail, and those sealed records would be then destroyed on a closed file. Only I thwarted their plans by finding out about the warrant in time to do something about the situation before they could do this. Another reason I know it was staged and planned is because on 8/11/18, two days after the warrant was issued, I got a call from a woman saying she was Alisha Grundy to try and lure me into a meeting. Again, that was to get ahold of me in the car and have me pulled over and arrested. If I had gone to the meeting, that’s probably what would have happened. That date, combined with the date of 7/12/18, being just two days after he went back to San Mateo County and he hadn’t met me in person where I could be probably served with that case, aren’t all of it either.

In August of 2017, I was also illegally arrested. The court told me if I plead guilty, I’d be released that day. If I plead innocent, I’d be held over three weeks. Needless to say, I pleaded guilty and got back to my disabled daughter’s care. Part of that plea bargain was I had to agree to pay $100 a month for six months. I paid that off in February. I have the receipts I paid it all off, and I recorded the call where the clerk told me I was “paid all up and off probation”.

Only on October 11, 2018, I got a call from the court advising me I was “in warrant” with them, and that I owed $300.00. If I had been driving while arrested, I sure wouldn’t have had proof on me that’s not true – which is how this started to begin with. Back in August, my papers to prove my innocent back then in California. It shows me the intent was to pull me over in Vegas, arrest me, than extradite me to San Mateo County – where frankly I’m not sure I would leave there alive. Again, if this was about admissible evidence, it wouldn’t have been handled this way. One year is a mistake, but Nevada has been coming up with phony warrants against me every year since 2009.

Enough is enough. That’s why I’ve filed one lawsuit already you can read at http://www.williamsvsusa.com because I’m having Google, Facebook, etc., try and stop our outreach. Now this? I’m preparing to file against the state of Nevada and San Mateo County for invasion of privacy and abuse of process. I’m hoping you’ll understand why I’m doing this and if not support us outright to protect the voices of survivors, then to understand what we’re trying to do here. Not everyone wants to be a Dr Ford. Sometimes I think even she doesn’t want to be Dr. Ford!

Thank you for listening. Sincerely,
Jody Williams

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo – Kavanaugh Appointment.

Anna Eshoo
Eerily reminiscent of the Ford-Kavanaugh matter, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo had brought yet another allegation of sexual misconduct by an official forward, one in which republican sheriff Greg Munks and his underboss, undersheriff Carlos Bolanos, had been caught and detained by the FBI, in a human trafficking investigation -the two were found at an illegal Las Vegas (Clark County) brothel, one trafficking underaged indentured sex slaves and controlled substances -Ecstasy. They were there as customers.

At the time, Eshoo had called for the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors to sanction Munks and Bolanos, but they had refused to address the matter. In fact, current San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe had gone so far as to excuse the duo’s behavior, consoling Munks, telling him it would soon be yesterday’s news, and saying he was “a man of integrity, such that it would not in any fashion affect his office’s ability to enforce the laws of the state of California”. On its face, such a comment could only be characterized as laughable, had the persons and conduct involved not been so serious. Not to mention DA Wagstaffe’s apparent dismissive attitude towards the abuse of women, by “Those Who Matter.”

MunksVegas4 copy

Munks went on to issue a press release, saying he had thought he had been going to a legitimate business, only to find out “It was not”, with Bolanos, to answer questions about the matter. A strategy which had worked, with the media/press and the board of supervisors not pursuing the matter further.

Congresswoman Eshoo is to be commended. I only hope her efforts, in the Kavanaugh matter, won’t be met with a similar fate -speaking truth to power is often an uphill battle.

It’s time for Equal Justice for everyone in San Mateo County, including “Those Who Matter.”

Please join us July 26, 2018 at 9:00 AM in San Mateo County Superior Court for former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez court appearance where the Hon. Judge Forcum will rule on this filing. Think about it Corrupt from day one, almost 4 years trying to ruin a good man, his family and friends.

Why hasn’t San Mateo County Sheriff Detective Andrew Armando been investigated outside of San Mateo County yet? Why no media coverage of this Motion filed with the court on May 1, 2018 in the Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case stated, “Detective Armando Perjuriously alleged that Mr. Lopez placed a telephone call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.”

Det. Armando is the guy who made the suspicious phone call himself. He lied to  Judge George A. Miram to get the Search Warrant. That is a Felony.

How is he (Andrew Armando) still employed by San Mateo County? Why has he not been arrested and charged?

San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd testified March 26, 2018 that he opened his own investigation of Juan P. Lopez based on the cell phone data SMCSO Detective Armando presented to him. ” My investigation began as a result of receiving some cellular telephone records provided by Detective Andrew Armando of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office who requested my assistance in analyzing those records for his own investigation.”

Lopez Filing May 1, 2018

The reason we have included the article below is simple. If the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office are willing to falsify affidavits to the Judges to frame one of their own former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, What makes you think they wouldn’t do the same for the people in the article below.

Remember 80 Search Warrants. Time for an Audit.

Four charged with perjury in ‘Operation Sunny Day’ cases

District attorney: mother, girlfriend and friends of alleged gang members lied during grand jury testimonies

Four people who testified in cases relating to the San Mateo County District Attorney Office’s “Operation Sunny Day” case, under which 16 alleged members of three East Palo Alto gangs were arrested for a string of violent crimes, were arraigned this week on perjury charges, according to the district attorney’s office.

One of the four charged is an East Palo Alto resident and mother of defendant Miguel Rivera, who has been charged with the October 2012 murder of 21-year-old Christopher Baker in East Palo Alto. According to the district attorney’s office, Betty Jo Rivera, 52, provided a false alibi for her son to the police and then lied about the false alibi and alleged cover-up efforts to the grand jury. She was arraigned on Monday, Aug. 17, and her bail has been set at $500,000.

The district attorney’s office has also charged Joel Santana, 20, of East Palo Alto for stating during the grand jury proceedings that he did not know and had no contact with defendant Tyrone Love-Lopez. Love-Lopez has been charged with the killing of 21-year-old Lamont Coleman in East Palo Alto on Jan. 26, 2013. An investigation revealed cell-phone communication between the two men before and after Coleman was murdered. Santana also had Love-Lopez’s contact information in his cell phone, the district attorney said.

Santana pleaded not guilty and has a bail of $100,000.

Thirty-nine-year-old Germina Lapria Sturns of Hayward, the girlfriend of defendant Raymond Bradford, was arraigned Monday for allegedly lying several times during her grand jury testimony about her knowledge of Bradford and guns that he owned, the district attorney said. She also allegedly violated a court order not to discuss her testimony with anyone by visiting Bradford in jail in the days following and talking to him about it.

Sturns also pleaded not guilty. His bail was set at $125,000.

On Tuesday, 19-year-old Victor Manuel Galvez of Redwood City was arraigned after testifying at the grand jury proceedings that he was not a gang member and had no friendship with or knowledge of any of those convicted as part of the county’s “Operation Sunny Day” prosecution, according to the district attorney’s office. He also denied ever being on Sacramento Street in East Palo Alto — an area associated with the “Sac Street” gang. Police wire taps recorded Galvez talking on a cell phone to several “Sunny Day” gang members, and police also found photographs of him standing on Sacramento Street, according to the district attorney.

Galvez did not enter a plea Tuesday. His bail was set at $200,000.

All four charged with perjury remain in custody and will next appear in court on Aug. 26.

The grand jury investigation that resulted in the 16 arrests began in early January and took two months. The indictments were announced in late March. The alleged gang members are being blamed for a string of violent crimes that stretched from East Palo Alto to San Francisco, starting in September 2012 and continuing through December 2013.

Dubbed “Operation Sunny Day” after the code the persons arrested allegedly used to signify when a murder was successfully carried out, the 18-month-long investigation is the most massive case prosecuted by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office in its history, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said at the time of the announcement.

Fourteen defendants appeared in court to enter their pleas in mid-June. Three of them — Roberto Gabriel Bustos-Montes, 24, of East Palo Alto; Emmanuel Imani Hyland, 25, also of East Palo Alto; and Palo Altan Nina Cragg, 24, — will not face the death penalty but could still receive life in prison without parole if convicted of the capital murder charges, Wagstaffe said in June.

Carlos Bolanos continues to mislead the Residents of San Mateo County.

This full page ad page 7 in the May edition of the Spectrum, He identifies himself as the incumbent he’s not. He was illegally appointed by three Supervisors led by Don Horsley on July 12, 2016. The ballot has it right as appointed Sheriff. Jerry Hill should have fired him on April 22, 2007, he simple refused to do his job. Now he is endorsing him.

Palo Alto Daily Post Endorses Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

I ask why? “We wish there were two better candidates in this race.” They don’t mention the 3rd candidate for Sheriff, Heinz Puschendorf is a Write In candidate that the Daily Post is aware of. Why?

“This won’t be an easy choice for informed voters.” That is an understatement. How would any San Mateo County Voter expect to be informed? Hint, it would look, feel and act like a Newspaper.

“A key issue for Melville is Operation Dollhouse, the 2007 FBI raid of a Las Vegas house of prostitution.” This was not a house of prostitution, this was a Human Trafficking Sex Slave residential house that included a minor. Dave Price leaves that out. Why?

“An FBI report indicates Munks went into the home while Bolanos stayed outside.” Dave Price has refused to identify or produce the FBI report. Why?

“He’s reached out to the Latin community,” It’s Latino, and what does that even mean? no communication/interviews by the Post, of anybody who is Latino.

The Palo Alto Daly Post has censored and deleted comments on this Endorsement.

Editorial: Carlos Bolanos best choice for San Mateo County Sheriff

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos

EDITORIAL

In the June primary, San Mateo County voters will see two candidates on the ballot for sheriff, the first time that’s happened since 1993, when Don Horsley was first elected to that post. We wish there were two better candidates in this race. This won’t be an easy choice for informed voters.

The candidates are Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, a former Redwood City police chief and county undersheriff. He was appointed sheriff in 2016, when Greg Munks retired. He is facing one of his own deputies, Mark Melville, who is currently assigned to patrol an area on the coast.

A key issue for Melville is Operation Dollhouse, the 2007 FBI raid of a Las Vegas house of prostitution during which Munks and Bolanos, then the undersheriff, were detained. Prostitution is legal in many places in Nevada, but not in Clark County, where the raid took place.

Munks and Bolanos weren’t charged. An FBI report indicates Munks went into the home while Bolanos stayed outside.

When they got back to San Mateo County, Munks issued a brief statement saying he thought they were visiting a “legitimate business.” After that, Munks dodged questions about the raid.

We recall a June 18, 2009, interview Munks gave to a Post reporter about the campaign for a new jail. At the end, the reporter asked about the Las Vegas incident. Munks abruptly halted the interview and ushered the reporter out of his office.

By staying silent about the incident over the years, Munks kept a cloud of suspicion hanging over himself and Bolanos.

Different attitude

When we interviewed Bolanos the other day, his attitude was very different. He was willing to talk about the incident without flinching. But he was adamant that he did nothing wrong that night in Vegas.

“I refuse to apologize for something I didn’t do,” Bolanos said.

And nobody has been able to prove that Bolanos did anything more than stand outside that brothel while Munks went inside.

The suggestion that Munks and Bolanos were lax on prostitution isn’t supported by the record.

The North Fair Oaks neighborhood in unincorporated San Mateo County, where the sheriff serves as the local police department, was previously littered with massage parlors that, according to online rating sites, were actually houses of prostitution.

In 2015, the sheriff’s office — headed by Munks with Bolanos as undersheriff — worked with code enforcers and the county counsel to shut down nine parlors. It was a considerable achievement that hasn’t been brought up in this campaign by either side.

While Bolanos doesn’t deserve a free pass for his involvement in the Vegas incident, nobody has been able to make the case that his department is enforcing the law any differently because of it.

Generally, we’ve liked what we’ve seen during Bolanos’ time as sheriff. The department has been more transparent, there have been very few instances of unprofessional conduct by deputies, and Bolanos has demonstrated that he’s fiscally conservative when spending the public’s money.

He’s reached out to the Latin community, which can be a difficult area for law enforcement agencies given the apprehension over immigration policy. His cooperation with ICE is dictated by state law, and Bolanos has been following that law. He has said repeatedly that his officers will not be asking about the immigration status of those they contact, and he doesn’t feel county deputies should enforce federal immigration law.

Experience matters

We question whether his opponent, Melville, would be capable of running a large sheriff’s department with 800 employees. It was disappointing that none of the county’s police chiefs or sheriff’s captains entered this race. Anybody who succeeds in one of those jobs would automatically be considered a strong candidate for sheriff.

Melville, currently a patrol deputy, does have executive experience, though not on the scale of running a major sheriff’s office like the one in San Mateo County. He was a city councilman in the small Central Valley town of Gustine (population 5,520) from 2002 to 2006. The Merced Sun-Star said he was fined $400 by the state Fair Political Practices Commission for not reporting on his financial disclosure forms that he owned a consulting business that worked on city projects.

He was city manager and public safety director in Livingston (population 13,058) from 1999 to 2002 and held a similar position in Gustine from 1988 to 1999, working as its city manager and police chief.

No perfect choice

We give Melville credit for jumping into the race and offering voters a choice. While neither is the perfect candidate, Bolanos wins our recommenddation because he has the strongest record and the most experience.

Coastside Progressive Democrats Endorse Mark Melville for Sheriff 2018.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

This is another Great and Brave endorsement for Mark Melville. Think about it, the coast side residents are policed/patrolled by the Sheriff’s Office. The same Sheriff’s Office that murdered Yanira Serrano Garcia several years ago. The same Sheriff’s Office that mishandled an identity theft case involving John Ullom. The same Sheriff’s Office that opened a criminal investigation involving Sabrina Brennan when they knew the allegations were false. Even knowing that Carlos Bolanos approved the case be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office with the recommendation to prosecute. This is the same Sheriff Office Gang Task Force that assaulted and threatened a San Mateo County Probation Officer in Half Moon Bay. That unit lead by Sgt. Jason Peardon doesn’t file Incident Reports when the assault and threaten residents.

The Coast is taking a stand It’s time for Honesty. It’s important the Sheriff is honest.
