Help Dan Moss if you can find the remains of his son Richard who was lost in San Mateo County.

What a year this has been. It became more real during the holidays. You know, when you make all those calls to friends & family. For us this year, there was less family and more friends. We are so grateful to all of our friends, new and old and our wonderful family. We couldn’t have made it this far without you. As most of you know, we are not living in the past. We are moving forward. That doesn’t mean we don’t miss Richard. Everyday something will remind us of him and we will cry for awhile. I’ve never cried so much in my life. We also haven’t stopped looking for him in the ocean.

Realistically, we’re looking at March or April for another major search. After the big ocean search in October revealed a smooth ocean floor and no cars, there should have at least 2 (Richard’s and Rose’s), the following theories are in play. If you have another one, we’d love to hear from you.

The number 1 theory is that the cars are buried in the sand under the ocean floor. We have friends that are going to be using an underwater metal detector to see if there is any metal (car) in the sand. This is time consuming. We are searching for a magnetometer that we could borrow or rent to pull behind a boat in the area. This will cover a larger area much quicker. If you could be of help getting one of these, please let us know.

Another theory is that the cars rolled out farther to sea in the wave activity. We’ve talked to Keith of Bruce’s Legacy about perhaps using him and his ROV to search farther out.

Another theory is that the cars are headed south in the ocean currents. That’s where Richard’s AAA Card and car parts headed as well as others in the past. If we can, we may be able to search the rest of the ocean in front of Montara Beach and maybe south towards the harbor.

I don’t see us stopping the search for Richard’s remains. We realize that he could be considered at peace in the ocean, it’s just that we would have to exhaust all other options before settling on that one.

We’d like to thank the Half Moon Bay Review for their New Years article about Richard and the barrier that was put up so quickly by CalTrans. Thank you again CalTrans. We know that at least 3 vehicles have struck it so far. We don’t know if it saved their lives or not. On the other hand, I have to believe that each driver was grateful that it was there.

Going forward, we’d like to put up a plaque in the area for Richard. CalTrans won’t stand in the way, but we will need a permit. Is there anyone that can help with this? If so, please let me know. I just don’t know how the process works. Also, if any of you have thoughts on what the plaque should look like, please let me know as well. Creating isn’t my forte but I know it is for many of you. We may ask for some donations once we know the details.

We love you all and especially you Richard. God bless you all.

California Commission on Judicial Performance Court Date.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Francisco, California August 17, 2017 Hon. Judge Susan Bolanos heard arguments on the Commission’s Confidential determination of its data. This agency has Never been audited in nearly 57 years,

The Law Firm Wagstaffe & Kerr LLP represented the public funded agency Commission on Judicial Performance. They are claiming the agency has the authority to determine  the information the State of California Auditor is requesting is Confidential and the State of California has no right to see it.

Think about it, this agency was formed to assure the public that nobody is above the law, including Judges

San Mateo County residents will recognize the Wagstaffe brothers involvement in protecting “Those Who Matter.” SMC Chief Deputy District attorney Steve Wagstaffe authored the “Those Who Matter.” e-mail the very first day the public became aware of our top two Law Enforcement Officers the Sheriff and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were caught and detained as CUSTOMERS of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, April 21, 2007 in an FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse.

Here is the e-mail our DDA Steve Wagstaffe sent to Carlos G. Bolanos the very first day anybody even heard about them being detained inside a residential home, with sex slaves in it. He blames the media.

Greg and Carlos

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

Steve

The Commission on Judicial Performance, the first judicial disciplinary body of its kind, was established by legislative constitutional amendment approved by voters in 1960 as an independent state agency. The commission’s mandate has always been threefold: to protect the public, enforce rigorous standards of judicial conduct and maintain public confidence in the integrity and independence of the judicial system.

San Mateo County’s Prosecution of Matthew Graves was Hateful & Vicious.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County’s Historical First Jury Trial of a Human Trafficking Case. Why was this case ever tried at this level in the first place? I want to be clear here, I’m talking about the prosecution only, what in the world motivated District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe to go forward with these charges. A 28 year old black man and father of a 4 year old daughter has been sentenced to 34 years to life in prison. This case does not involve 25 women forced into prostitution like the FBI Operation Dollhouse Sting did. It involved one woman and her statements.

The District Attorney is Elected by the people, they are responsible for his/her behavior.

DDA Melissa McKowan who should have been fired by Steve Wagstaffe 7 years ago is going to trial next month August 15-18 in San Francisco. The State Bar has charged her with 2 counts of Dishonesty. Think about that a San Mateo County Employee who prosecutes people is dishonest and has been for 7 years that we know of. How many innocent people have been convicted in San Mateo County because of this supported behavior?

San Mateo County’s Historical Human Trafficking trial that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe didn’t want anybody to attend. Mathew Graves Case.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County’s District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has for many years e-mailed daily to his favorite people who act like News Reporters and their businesses that look like Newspapers, He determines what is Newsworthy for the 780,000 residents. He did not think the Mathew Graves case was newsworthy until he got the Conviction. Why?

Here for the first time the public can hear from his mother, Had any reporters attended either the trial or the sentencing hearing they would have heard these words.

Statement from Mother of Man Convicted of Trafficking

I first must say I, by no means, negate the seriousness of Human Trafficking. It is a traumatic human experience that should not happen.

Second, I want to say I am African American and my ancestors were brought here as enslaved persons forced to work for centuries under the torment of a racist system which has significant lingering effects to this day and, unfortunately it will continue until…?

Third, the term Sex Trafficking is given the term “Modern-Day Slavery”.

That being said, my son was convicted and sentenced to 34 years for pimping, pandering, trafficking a minor.

 

There were articles in the San Mateo Daily Journal and some other publication that ran this story. Jury issues first-ever human trafficking conviction in county: Man found guilty of crimes stemming from Burlingame & Man gets 34-year sentence for human trafficking conviction.

Like I said, the man in article is my son. My son has a 4-year old daughter named Nevaeh (Heaven spelled backwards). My son had gotten into some trouble ten years ago and paid his debt to society. My son is a barber by profession. He was born in San Mateo but we moved to Berkeley where he has lived for 28 years. Yes, he has lots of family and friends and he is a good person by all accounts. My son and his generation are a part of the hip/hop generation. That generation of youngster take fun and activities to a different level from the 50s, 60s and 70s generations.

 

That basically is who my son is. No, he is not a human trafficker. He refused to accept the deal and he was convicted for charges that his part in the situation does not amount to those labels. Those who matter know that.

It has been a long, painful process. My son is innocent of those charges. It is a travesty of justice that a law allowed lies, embellishments, false/scripted testimony, lack of witnesses, dismissal of evidence take a man away from his family and the so called “victim” continued the behavior she had before she disrupted my son’s life, while she disrupted my son’s life and after my son was detained. All she did was change her name on her social media accounts and continued on with her “activities”. My son was detained 12/10/15 because of her statements on the police reports and she was posting again 1/6/16 directing persons to her “PaidAss” Instagram account. However, the DA office turned a “blind eye” on her and blamed absolutely all her behavior around on my son! Really! Now, he is sentenced to 34 years. Really!

 

The article states she showed up at the hospital with bruises. That is not cool at all for that to happen. I do not want anyone to be hurt. But that where it stops if you want to accuse my son of forced labor. As I said in the beginning of the article, our ancestors were brought to this country and forced into labor. My son, under no circumstance, is that! “Modern-Day Slavery” – The hypocrisy of that insinuation.

The jury got it wrong. The DA got it wrong. “Wagstaffe, Please do not state those inflammatory statements about my son. You do not know him!” This situation went into a direction it should not have. Too many lies, mistakes, accusations, false evidence warrants my son’s life. Justice was not served here. Not in the least bit. The politics convicted an innocent man of those charges. Fix it and set my son free!

Crystal Graves.

Is San Mateo County’s District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe a racist? Yes

Do all of the County Leaders, Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, Carole Groom, Dave Canepa, County Manager John Maltbie, County Counsel John Beiers know this fact? Yes

Steve Wagstaffe contacted and starred in a America’s Most Wanted episode involving Victor Willis, lead singer for the Village People. He failed to show up for a drug court appearance, he happens to be black.
