San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Melissa McKowan Trial Dates changed to August 15-18, 2017.

The State Bar of California has charged her with 2 counts of Dishonesty. That sounds shocking enough all by itself, This is not the first time the Bar has investigated her for this same behavior. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and Deputy Chief Karen Guidotti have also Investigated her for the same allegations and she was dishonest in her responses to Guidotti.

The Question is How is she still employed by San Mateo County?

San Mateo County’s Biggest Misconduct Case. Former Deputy Juan P. Lopez has just switched attorneys. Tony Serra has replaced Stuart Hanlon.

The reason I call this the biggest Misconduct case is it involves, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office and County Counsel Office all conspiring to harm Juan P. Lopez.

It has been almost 3 years since District Attorney told the public Juan Lopez was involved in smuggling a cell phone and drugs to a gang member in his jail cell. To this day there is NO EVIDENCE of that being true.

Media Blackout of DDA Melissa McKowan’s State Bar Court Case.

April 17, 2017 There was a Court Hearing in San Francisco at the State Bar Court.

All print media in San Mateo County was notified in advance. None produced a story and none attended the Court Hearing. I know this because I was there. One other note the Almanac and the Half Moon Bay Review would not allow me to post a thread about this on their websites, this subject is off limits for some reason.

Should San Mateo County continue doing Internal Investigations? McKowan & Lopez cases.

In 2012 DDA Melissa McKowan was suspended without pay (24 Hours) for being Dishonest. This is a person that Prosecutes People and Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti know she lies. The suspension which Steve Wagstaffe said was appropriate didn’t stop her dishonest behavior. Within 60 days of this suspension she did it again. She was in San Francisco this week at the State Bar Court for more charges of Dishonesty.

San Mateo County residents should know that all seven Print Newspapers that serve you were notified in advance of this court date. None chose to print a story about a Prosecutor being charged with dishonesty. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sends stories of interest to reporters every day and has for years, this did not make his list either.

Melissa Mckowan’s Response

Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P.Lopez was suspended for 200 hours later reduced to 150 he appealed and lost. The Investigating against him was conducted by a dishonest SMC Sgt. The Board of Supervisors have been notified of this information and they fail to act.

How is San Mateo County DDA Melissa Renee Anne McKowan still employed by the District Attorney’s Office?

Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti protected Melissa McKowan, They should have fired her, criminally charged her and made sure she never practiced law again.

Sad, San Mateo County Supervisors have failed to address Prosecutorial Misconduct for 17 years. This could have easily been avoided.

She not only lied to a victim’s mother, she lied and supplied a false document to SMCDA Chief Deputy M. Guidotti who was investigating the allegations of her lying. Both are criminal acts. The false document was a copy of letter from Special Deputy Trial Counsel, Robert K. Sall dated July 25, 2011 in which she wrote “Not True” in the margins. She knew it was true.

San Mateo County and its relationship to the State Bar Association.

This is something to think about, it demonstrates their thoughts about Human Trafficked Sex Slaves and our top two Sheriff’s being detained as Customers of that trade.

James Wagstaffe who represents the Bar Association is the brother of SMC’s current District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
