Melissa Renee Anne McKowan is no longer employed by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe she is no longer employed by his office and she now works as an attorney for the Private Defender Program. She left the DA’s office about 2 months ago.

Some readers might recall we wrote about her 2nd State Bar Court appearance in April 2017 for 2 counts of dishonesty. We also notified the 7 advertising businesses and attempted to post blogs on The Almanac and Half Moon Bay Review but we were blocked.

I had asked the question how could San Mateo County employ a dishonest prosecutor?How was she still employed by the DA’s Office?

Here is one article

SMC DDA Melissa KcKowan gets Public Reproval with/duties effective August 31, 2017

The Sate Bar case number 13-0-13293 has issued a public reproval with/duties. She was charged with 2 counts of dishonesty. Think about it San Mateo County has a prosecutor who is dishonest. Now think about this her two bosses Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti have known that for several years. What does that say about the entire District Attorney’s Office. What does it say about the 7 businesses that look and act like Newspapers, all 7 refused to notify the 780,000 residents of the charges and the first trial date of April 17, 2017. 2 papers refused to allow me to blog about it.

San Mateo County’s DDA Melissa McKowan Court Case for Dishonesty is off calendar.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Matter # 13-O-13293

https://goo.gl/images/APLTNb

The trial was set for August 15-18 in San Francisco which was expected to have 3 days of character witnesses telling the Judge what an Honest person Melissa McKowan was/is. The State Bar of California has reached a tentative settlement and therefore removed the trial from the courts calendar.

I have said that Melissa McKowan should not be employed by San Mateo County, She should have been fired back in 2010 when this exact behavior first surfaced.

San Mateo County Supervisor’s have allowed this Dishonest behavior in the District Attorney’s Office for 17 years that we are aware of.

Our fingers are crossed that the settlement includes disbarment.

The Almanac continues to protect the District Attorney’s Office

The above article has closed the comment section. I notified the paper in advance of the April 17, 2017 Hearing they did not write an article about it and refused to allow me to blog about it, I attended the hearing they did not.

State Bar Court Suspends C.C.C. Former District Attorney Mark Peterson.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

The State Bar Court announced yesterday July 28, 2017 the Temporary Suspension which takes effect next month.

The reason Mark Peterson is Former District Attorney is that he was offered the “Those who Matter” plea bargain of reducing 13 Felony charges to 1 of Perjury back in June. That’s over 90% of the charges gone, why? ¬†This is the person trusted with charging people with crimes. If any case deserved to go to court on ALL charges this was one.

Doron Weinberg is Mark Peterson’s attorney. This is a small world connection, Doron Weinberg was SMC’s Dr. William Ayres attorney in the criminal trial and DDA Melissa McKowan was the prosecutor.

In San Mateo County DDA Melissa McKowan is in State Bar Court

State Bar matter 13-O-13293

August 15-18, 2017 for 2 counts of Dishonesty, Not the first time I might add. She should have been terminated as a San Mateo County Employee and disbarred back in 2010.
