San Mateo County Courts Closed for 60 Days.

By Michael G. Stogner

All courts in the State of California are closed and cases are delayed for 60 days. Better late then never, this was a no-brainer. San Mateo County Supervisors might take this time and finally secure the 400 County Center Building as they should have years ago. People entering the building without going through the metal detectors every single day.

Hon. Judge Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye Order

Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye said in her order that court facilities were “ill-equipped to effectively allow the social distancing and other public health requirements” that have been imposed across California to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

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

Are the courts still open this week?
Thank You

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.”

Who was the Bailiff for Judge Lisa Novak January 4-5 2017?

sheriffsoffice.

By Michael G. Stogner

I would like to personally thank Him/Her for doing their job and honoring the Oath they took. Since 1998 I have known that crimes are being committed in San Mateo County Courtrooms in front of Sheriff Deputies who are sworn officers. They have a Duty to protect the Public.

This for the moment unknown Sheriff Deputy did the right thing. He/She informed Hon. Judge Lisa Novak that he had personally viewed the Video that Sheriff Sergeant Michael Edward Otte just testified to under oath & the penalty of Perjury that he never took with his personal cellphone. At the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, she informed the judges in attendance that She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom. You would think that is Newsworthy not in San Mateo County.

Former Sheriff Sergeant Otte has quietly moved on and he has Invoked his 5th amendment rights.

Who in SMC knew about this Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, County Counsel John Beiers and Deputy Counsel David Silberman? Several Judges,

You would have thought the Government would have cut this case loose after this but that is not how it works in San Mateo County.

16-SM-001677-A | The People of the State of California vs. Rachel Amanda Quintana 

Think about that this for a moment, you are a woman who lives in Half Moon Bay, you have 2 brothers who recently had interactions with SMCSO who provide law enforcement services there. You take the time to personally go to the Substation and report your concerns about those interactions. A short time later YOU are arrested at your home, Sgt. Otte is videoing it on his cellphone. You are in the court system for 4 years. San Mateo County Counsel is going to inflict as much personal pain and suffering on you as possible.

I support Rachel Amanda Quintana.

San Mateo County’s Above the Law Gang.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was ordered to stay home when he was the subject of an Internal Affairs Investigation. That is exactly what happens.

What about SMCSO Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino, and SMCDA Inspectors William Massey & John Warren? Were they ordered to stay home?

Hello Rosemerry,

As you know it’s important for the Public’s Trust that Nobody is above the law.

Was SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino ever placed on Administrative Leave after his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest.

Who at the Sheriff’s Office conducted the Internal Affairs Investigation that you told the PADP was being conducted? Is it completed?

Please provide San Mateo County News.com with the Booking Photo from the Sheriff’s office as you know I have asked for this several times.

Did DMV suspend his California Drivers License yes or no?

Thank You

It is a Penal Code 115A Felony to file a False Instrument (written document) with the court.

    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

“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.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte Committed Perjury, Why wasn’t he charged? Selective Prosecution.

By Michael G. Stogner

On January 4 and 5, 2017, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak heard a motion to dismiss in People v. Rachel Quintana (No. 16-SM-001677) San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte testified under oath that he did not take a video of the arrest on his cellphone. Another SMCSO Deputy NICHOLAS P. Kostielney on February 2, 2016 Filed a supplemental report after the arrest Kostielney stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.” The arrest date was August 28, 2015 so that gave Kostielney 5 months to make that statement. Filing a false police report is a crime.

As it would turn out a person at the arrest took out his cellphone and videoed Sgt. Otte videoing the arrest. Also Judge Novak’s Bailiff came up to her and reported that he had viewed the video Sgt. Otte just lied about under oath. Good Job to the bailiff.

January 20, 2017 at a Judges Meeting, Judge Lisa Novak informed the Court’s Judges that she had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself.

How many Judges attended the Judge’s Meeting and have known from that moment on that at least two San Mateo County Sheriff Employees committed perjury and did not make sure that the District Attorney’s Office Prosecute them. How many Attorneys at San Mateo County Counsel’s Office know this information. Finally how Supervisors of SMC and their staff know this information.

The D.A.’s office does in fact charge some people with perjury, 4 witnesses in the Sunny Day Murder trials as an example.

Also this relationship that Judge Novak shared should be broken up.

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.

 

Judge are the safety net for the public, The public trust is at stake here they are counting on the judges to no allow Prosecutorial Misconduct, or Law Enforcement Misconduct or Misconduct by County Counsel. Why didn’t Judge Lisa Novak have Sheriff Sergeant Otte come back to court and explain why he used his cellphone to video an arrest in the first place and why did he just lie under oath in her court?

When San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeants, Deputies lie under oath in Courts the Jury tends to believe them as they should.

Note: Michael E. Otte is no longer employed by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Are SMCDA Inspectors William Massey and John Warren on Administrative Leave during this Alleged Internal Investigation?

By Michael G. Stogner

January 7, 2020 San Mateo Counsel Attorney Joseph Charles filed a Motion to Quash Subpoenas involving San Mateo County District Attorney Office Inspectors William Massey and John Warren. He claimed without offering any evidence to support it that the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office is investigating itself which as you can imagine if true at the very least is a Terrible Idea when you consider the Conflict of Interest. Attorney Charles refuses to say when the alleged Investigation started, and Who is conducting the investigation if in fact there is one at all. The simple reason I say that is an outside agency should be conducting that investigation to avoid the appearance of a Conflict of Interest. The give away in attorney Charles filing was that the Investigation is

recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.”

The Defendant in this case is the forced to retire Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and the underlying criminal trial has been in the court system for 5 years and 2 months. Most likely will not go to trial till July 2020. The alleged Investigation which has a No End In Site ETA should take a Maximum of 30 days to complete, they have had 73 days to do it so far.
