Superior Courts San Mateo County are Open Why? L.A. County are Closed.

As of yesterday afternoon I was unable to tell Liz Valencia the Mother of Vincent Valencia who is scheduled to be sentenced to Prison this morning in Judge Susan Greenberg’s court if the Superior Courts were open or not. I checked the websites and I sent this e-mail to SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe for this information. Liz lives in Fresno a 3 hour drive plus there is a Stay in Place Order in effect. D.A. Wagstaffe did not reply which is unusual for him.

Here is a Letter I sent by Certified Mail to Judge Greenberg regarding Vincent Valencia.

Michael G. Stogner                                                                     Date: March 11, 2020 831-210-8994 michaelgstogner@yahoo.com

Honorable Judge Susan Greenberg

Southern Court 400 County Center

Redwood City, California 94063

Regarding: March 17, 2020 Sentencing

Vincent Valencia 19-SF-003527-A & 19-SF-008911-A

Dear Honorable Judge Susan Greenberg,

I am writing you as a Private Victim’s Advocate who has No relationship or Conflict of Interest with speaking out about Vincent Valencia. I’m very concerned that San Mateo County and the Courts have failed to acknowledge his long history of Mental Health Issues. His Mother Liz Valencia drove up from Fresno to inform the Board of Supervisors recently about his Mental History which goes back to his childhood. She stated he has been arrested more than 100 times in the last 10 years. That all by itself should be the Red Flag that something is very wrong and possibly Not Criminal. You will see from prior court records he pleads often when he is represented by the Private Defender Program. No Jury Trial.

I hope that bringing this to your attention will cause you to ask the appropriate questions, He clearly doesn’t understand this process even though the Court records state Defendant was advised of and understood Charges and Direct Consequences of plea. Jan. 27. 2020

Thank You for being the Safety Net.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Stogner

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To:Steve Wagstaffe Mon, Mar 16 at 5:30 PMHello Steve,
Are the courts still open this week?
Thank You 
Michael

Courts in L.A. will be closed till Friday

By James Queally and Matt Hamilton

All Los Angeles County court proceedings will be suspended for several days as concerns about the spread of the coronavirus continue to mount, court officials announced Monday.

The nation’s largest court system will go dark from March 17 to 19, according to a statement issued by Presiding Judge Kevin Brazile. Court will reopen Friday for “the limited purpose of hearing or handling essential or emergency matters.”

“The Superior Court of Los Angeles County is committed to providing equal access to justice through the fair, timely and efficient resolution of all cases. However, it is imperative that we continue aligning our Court with the most recent directives and guidelines issued by our national, state and local public health officials,” the statement read. “Let me be clear: we will continue to serve the needs of the most vulnerable people in Los Angeles County—our children, the elderly, domestic violence victims, people whose life and liberty interests are at stake, and in many other emergent cases as is possible and safe.”

Brazile had previously asked that new criminal and civil trials be put on hold for at least 30 days. The three-day suspension is being carried out with the approval of California’s chief justice, Tani Cantil-Sakauye.

Courts in Orange County also announced late Monday that they were suspending all proceedings until March 27 due to the public health crisis.

Los Angeles County courts are expected to reopen Friday, but a lengthier stalling of judicial proceedings is possible.

Three law enforcement officials told The Times that Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey sent a message to prosecutors over the weekend telling them that a 30-day delay of all active jury trials was likely to be implemented. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss the matter candidly.

The district attorney’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

In his statement Monday, Brazile said he would release additional information in the coming days about further reductions in judicial and court services.

The announcement comes as criminal justice officials in California continue to struggle with how spread of the virus will impact courthouses and jails.

Over the weekend, Los Angeles County court officials announced the suspension of the high-profile murder trial of New York real estate scion Robert Durst.

Judges were also encouraged to shift toward telephonic proceedings to lower traffic in the region’s courthouses.

Statewide, courthouses have taken a patchwork of measures to deal with the threat the virus poses to jurors and staff, ranging from trial delays to temporary building closures to excusing older jurors.

Lou Shapiro, a criminal defense attorney in Century City, applauded Brazile’s decision and said it was a relief for the attorneys and court staff that he knew.

“Many attorneys are really scared to go to work right now. You don’t have effective advocates if they are always living in fear,” Shapiro said.

He said that in the long term, the benefits of temporary closure would be more apparent.

“Because this disease is so contagious, if it does go around the court staff and lawyers, what justice will be served? What kind of advocates can public defenders and criminal defense attorneys be if they are quarantined?” Shapiro asked. “It’s better to sit out a few days or weeks. At the end of it, the defendants’ rights will be better served by taking this short-term break, rather than letting it ride and seeing how it goes.”

Michele Hanisee, president of the union representing deputy district attorneys, said the interruptions could prove significant for active trials, and suggested judges may allow for a review of prior testimony to allow jurors to re-acclimate themselves with evidence in case of prolonged delays.

“This is new, uncharted territory for everyone presently alive. It’s hard to know what’s too little and what’s too much. Everyone is proceeding with caution,” she said.

Nikhil Ramnaney, president of the union representing Los Angeles County public defenders, said he believed the court should have taken action sooner given the ease with which the virus could spread in a courthouse.

“I think now they’re finally taking this seriously … in terms of my membership, in the last 72 hours it’s been insane how many people are very, very scared,” he said. “It’s impossible given the facilities to engage in social distancing.”

Ramnaney also noted that while the shutdown is necessary to prevent spread among lawyers, law enforcement officers and others who move in and out of the county’s sprawling court system, it could also worsen problems for at-risk individuals who are incarcerated.

“During the next three days, what venue do we have to petition for the release of very vulnerable people?” he asked. “That to me is the really difficult one.… How do we strike a balance between our own personal safety, and the safety of our families, and the safety of incarcerated people?”

Before the announcement was made, the county’s top public defender, Ricardo Garcia, told The Times in an interview that any adjustments the court makes must stand up to constitutional muster.

“If there’s any situation where client rights are infringed on, we will object,” Garcia said, noting that keeping defendants out of custody was among his top priorities.

Garcia said that public defenders were confronting difficult dilemmas amid the closures of courthouses, trial delays and a widening public health crisis.

“Right now people are torn: They have two competing interests as attorneys. The first being the desire to protect themselves and their family, the people they love,” Garcia said, “and the second is the people they’ve dedicated their careers to protect: their clients.”

“Unqualified trust relationship with this partner.” Hon. Judge Lisa Novak

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

In a response to the Commission on Judicial Performance .

The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960, is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges, pursuant to article VI, section 18 of the California Constitution.

Somebody filed a complaint against Judge Novak because she notified all the Judges present at the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

The person or persons who filed the complaint was not concerned at all by the fact that a SMC Sheriff Sergeant would lie under oath in her court, the person and the CJP was only concerned that she informed all the Judges who attended.

She noted the close relationship between the Sheriffs Office and the Court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

Lets look at this unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.

In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi three False News Releases. Omitting 6th Sheriff Employee for starters.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI arrested by RWCPD September 14, 2019 Sheriff Bolanos refuses to release the Booking Photo. Why?

San Mateo County former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case going for more than 5 years with the sole purpose to cause harm to him mentally and financially. The public might recall the big Press Conference claiming Nobody is above the law in San Mateo County and Charging Deputy Lopez with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel member in Jail. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos knew there was No Evidence to support those charges.

These are just three current examples unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

An older example when Carlos G. Bolanos was Undersheriff 2010 the Brave Female Deputy reporting the 46 San Mateo County Sheriff Male Employees receiving and sharing Porn and Rape Video on County Computers.

It is my experience that Judges in San Mateo County have allowed Sheriff Employees and District Attorney Employees and County Counsel Employees to lie/file false instruments and give False Testimony on a daily basis, this is the Norm it shouldn’t be.

I say you can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Lets find out exactly what happened after Hon. Judge Lisa Novak made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

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.

By Sarah Navratil & Michael G. Stogner

December 27, 2018 and signed off on December 31, 2018, Became public on March 1, 2019 after the San Mateo County District Attorney made it available on their website. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a Private Press Conference where he gave a 26 minute presentation of the Investigation of the In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi. HOMICIDE was never mentioned.

We at San Mateo County News.com can just imagine the pressure she must have felt for simply doing the job she was hired to do. The amount of other SMC Employees who had knowledge of her Homicide ruling and Omitted that word is shocking.

Congratulations Heather Diaz.

San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz # 21 stated: “Upon arrival of Paramedics and Fire Personnel Chinedu Okobi was assessed and found to be unresponsive.”

“As the death was the result of multiple measures to subdue Chinedu Okobi by law enforcement, and based on the information contained in the Coroner’s Investigation Report, Toxicology Report, medical records, and multiple videos, 

“I have determined the manner of death to be homicide.”

March 1, 2019 SMCDA’s Work Product made public.

SMCDA Inspectors Jamie Draper and John Warren should be on the Brady List.

By Michael G. Stogner

A reasonable person would expect the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Lead Investigator and his boss to provide Honest & Accurate Information at all times. In the Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Homicide Investigation involving SIX Sheriff Employees that is not the case.

Inspector Jamie Draper identifies CSO Joseph Gonzales as a Witness not a Participant. Why? He’s the one spraying the O.C. spray in the video.

The statement below was provided (Unknown date) by SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper and approved by SMCDA John Warren.

OMMISSION: Homicide

December 31, 2018 Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 

“I have determined the manner of death to be Homicide.”

CORONERS REPORT SUMMARY

On December 31, 2018 I received the Coroner’s Office Report, prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. The report included redacted sections related to Decedent Chinedu Okobi’s medical treatment on October 3, 2018 as well as redacted sections related to his previous medical and mental treatments pursuant to 56.10 of the California Civil Code. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz included a summary of the attempts by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office personnel to detain Decedent Okobi and noted Okobi was found be “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment.

  1. prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  2. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  3. “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene. The video provided to the public by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe CONFIRMS Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz’s statement.
  4. and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment. Jamie Draper should identify the Fire Department Paramedics by name and what time on the video did that take place, there are NO CAPTIONS and the video DOES NOT support his statement.

On March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a private Press Conference announcing his decision not to charge the Five Sheriff Employees with any criminal charges. During his 26 minute presentation he Omitted the SIXTH Sheriff Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales and Omitted the word Homicide. That only popped out at the 47:40 mark when KQED Reporter Julie Small asked what was the manner of Death?

That doesn’t seem very Honest does it?

Steve Wagstaffe also stated:“From that point on” approaching the 9 minute mark on the video.” “The Sheriff Office and our review of their conduct is done. Sheriff Office turned him over to AMR.”

The video that Mr. Wagstaffe provided the public does NOT SUPPORT that statement, it shows AMR people at 17:54 mark. not approaching the 9 minute mark. That is a 9 minute difference, not a couple of seconds.

San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley opposes Citizen Oversight Committee. I’m not surprised.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sup_Don_Horsley_portrait

 

The reason I said I’m not surprised is Don Horsley is dedicated to supporting Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the employer of his son. Some readers might recall that I am the citizen that saved San Mateo County Tax Payers at least $250,000 when I encouraged Supervisor Don Horsley to get back on track and keep his political campaign promise that he reneged on which was to not accept the Supervisor salary if elected. The reason I was so interested in it was he said it several times sitting next to me when we both were campaigning for Supervisor.

When asked by Bay City News whether they supported a new citizens’ oversight body, only one of five of the county supervisors, former Sheriff Don Horsley, responded to say that he unequivocally opposed the idea. Why did the other Supervisors refuse to answer the question?

“I just don’t think that having an oversight body adds anything other than more conflict and I don’t think it would have solved anything” in Chinedu Okobi’s case, Horsley said. How would Supervisor Horsley know?

October 3, 2018 News Release: Below is a list of the names of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Personnel who were involved in the critical incident on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018. Deputy John DeMartini, Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti, Deputy Joshua Wang, Deputy Bryan Watt, Sergeant Weidner. OMITTED from this list is the SIXTH Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales, Why?

Supervisor Don Horsley is unconcerned with Dishonest behavior by the Sheriff.

One thing Supervisor Don Horsley refuses to address is why did Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos produce this False statement on October 3, 2018. “The deputy exited his vehicle to contact the suspect and the suspect immediately assaulted the deputy.”

This subject was never mentioned over the radio, on the video, or in any reports. Where did Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos get this FALSE INFORMATION and why did he approve it and allow it to remain on the County’s website for 5 months until I asked Steve Wagstaffe about it at his March 1, 2019 Press Conference. He told me “You’ll have to ask the Sheriff Bolanos.” I have and he refuses to respond.

Horsley said that he thinks that the sheriff’s office has been transparent through the investigation and was unconcerned that it took five months for the inaccurate information to be corrected. It was not inaccurate information it was FALSE INFORMATION approved by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, It was a LIE.

“I think it was good of them to correct the statement,” he said.

The Sheriff’s Office did not correct the statement they simply removed it from the Website and produced another false statement dated March 1, 2019

Horsley said that in addition to the use of force policy changes, the sheriff’s office has added implicit bias training and the county has expanded its mental health outreach.

“It’s understandable why the sheriff’s deputy thought they had to stop him,” Horsley said. 

Stopping a person is one thing Killing a person and offering NO CPR for almost 10 minutes is something entirely different.

Chinedu Okobi was killed while In-Custody by SIX NOT FIVE San Mateo County Sheriff Employees.

San Mateo County Coroner’s Office ruled Chinedu Okobi’s death a Homicide.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe at his March 1, 2019 Press Conference confirmed it was a Homicide. He said “The Coroner of this County Labeled it a Homicide.” He went on to say Homicide occurring during interaction with that individual.” That means the SIX Sheriff Employees.

Supervisor Don Horsley knows all of this information and he is Unconcerned and Uninterested.

The March 1, 2019 Lie by San Mateo County Government was Chinedu Okobi died after he was turned over to the Medics and they had him for Several Minutes, Both Sheriff Carlos G, Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe are promoting that Lie.

I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to identify the MEDICS, He has refused.
