San Mateo County Sheriff Office Booking Photo Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.

Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.

It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.

What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.

The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.

Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

    Dear Supervisors,
    https://www.smcsheriff.com/sites/default/files/articles/19-11427.pdf

    See Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade do release the Booking photos of some people arrested in San Mateo County.
    They both are still refusing to release the Booking photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino who was arrested September 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department for DUI and refusing both Breath and Blood tests.
    Could you please ask both of them to explain why?
    Thank You

I’m still waiting.

The next Court Date for Sheriff Sergeant Aquino was April 6, 2020 but you can take that off of your calendar The D.A’s Office, Joshua Bentley and the Judge have quietly no reporters completed this DUI case this Wednesday.

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI Case Next Court Date April 6, 2020

IMG_1207

By Michael G. Stogner

March 2, 2020 Court date results next court date is April 6, 2020.

As you can see this is not his Booking Photo, for some unknown reason Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Rosemerry Blankswade the Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer have refused to provide it or even respond to my several requests.

On October 1, 2019 San Mateo County News.com was the first News & Information Service to report his arrest September 14, 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department at 11:30 PM near the DSA Building on Broadway Ave. He crashed a vehicle into a tree with a RWCPD Officer right behind him. He was to belligerent to qualify for First Chance in Burlingame but RWCPD did him a Big Favor by taking him there anyway. Easier to hide the arrest if he was accepted there. The Staff refused to accept him and RWCPD drove him to Maguire Jail in Redwood City where he was supposedly BOOKED for DUI and Refusing both Blood and Breath Tests, which is a loss of Drivers License for those who don’t matter.

Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino retained Attorney Josh Bentley (AKA The Fixer) before any criminal charges were filed. That is always the best way to do it.

Sergeant Aquino did not appear at his last Court Date and most likely he will not appear at the next one.

I sent this story to all the San Mateo County Newspapers, The only paper to publish a story was the Palo Alto Daily Post October 25, 2019 24 days later.

Corruption in San Mateo County is nothing new, I think most residents know it exists and they are just thankful it hasn’t affected them personally. They don’t think there is anything they can do about it. So they remain Silent and allow it, this case is a perfect example.

Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos think he doesn’t have to release the Booking Photo?

“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.

Mark Melville Candidate for SMC Sheriff 2022

sjm-l-smcsheriff-0603

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes which was 40% of the 172,168 Ballots cast. 38,140 ballots or 22% of total ballots DID NOT vote for Sheriff according to the San Mateo County Elections Office website. Most of the residents of San Mateo County don’t realize that they are responsible for the behavior and conduct of their Sheriff. The Sheriff Office employees 800 people who are trusted to provide law enforcement services throughout the County. There is ZERO Oversight of this agency.

Melville stands a much better chance to win now that he has the time to get his message out to the voters. That includes the uphill battle to counter the False information provided to the public by the print media. Example SMDJ “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time. I have asked Jon Mays to provide a copy of the Later Reports he has not.

Mark Melville was very direct and specific when talking about his boss Carlos G. Bolanos. “He’s a Liar,” That would have been good information for the SMDJ to pass on to their 84,000 readers/voters of San Mateo County. They choose not to and instead said “We Believe Him.”

KQED Interview

I don’t know if Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has any plans to run for re-election in 2022. I do know he didn’t like to attend candidate forums with Mark Melville present.

As far a transparency goes, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide the Booking Photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino for his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest by the Redwood City Police Department. I asked Candidate Melville as Sheriff would he release that photo? His answer was Yes. That was refreshing, it’s pretty simple that Booking Photo is Public Information. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has issued several False News Releases regarding the October 3, 2018 In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi by six Sheriff Employees. He has refused to respond to several requests regarding the False Information.

Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez & Zain Jaffer & Matthew Graves cases.

By Michael G. Stogner

 

 

 

 

The public expects when their District Attorney”s Office criminally charges a person that the charges are accurate and truthful. What is the assurance that this is reality. It used to be reporters in the courtroom and producing articles covering the cases. San Mateo County used to have dedicated space in the 400 County Center Building for all the advertising businesses aka Newspapers Reporters to work on their stories. San Mateo County Government closed that and hired most of the reporters.

What if the District Attorney’s Office was used as a Weapon, or a Profit Center? What would it be worth to destroy a political opponent and his close loved ones and associates.

How much could one case possibly be worth to have it simply disappear after it already made its way through a Preliminary Hearing and all charges were confirmed.

What would the ordinary residents of San Mateo County do if they learned that was happening? How would they find out if that was really happening today? Would they look to the Governments website for that information. Would San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman notify the public if he was personally aware of this happening.

Would San Mateo County Sheriff Detective & Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankswade notify the public if she had personal knowledge of this happening? Would she respond to all News Media questions or just those approved by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

What would they do if they learned that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos willfully issued a False News Release as he did on October 3, 2018 regarding the In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi?

What role do the seven English print media play in informing or not informing the public of Newsworthy events. A most recent example is the Redwood City Police Department September 14, 2019 DUI arrest of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino and for refusing a breathalyzer and blood test which is a 1 year suspension of your Drivers License by DMV for almost all ordinary people. Google it to see how many SMC papers covered that story and what date did they report it.

Yesterday I drove up from Monterey County to attend Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case in SSF. San Mateo County District Attorney Jordan Boyd was to take the witness stand and explain under oath how he interviewed 49 Witnesses in this case and DID NOT RECORD any of them. After an hour delay and a lot of hem hawing the Judge announced that the District Attorney’s Office has made Juan P. Lopez a plea offer,  which included NO PRISON TIME and therefore Inspector Jordan Boyd will not be testifying under oath. What a relief for the D.A.’s Office.

For any San Mateo County resident you will recall that Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was arrested at gun point in front of his son for smuggling a cell phone and drugs to a Hells Angel member inmate at the Redwood City Jail. A reasonable person would assume that there was evidence to support those charges. There was not they were dismissed by Hon. Judge Ayoob.

There is no question that SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd is a Brady Officer. That is why the County Government doesn’t want him on the witness stand. Think of the Sunny Day Murder cases he worked on.

I invite any and all concerned people to join me November 6, 2019 at South San Francisco Courthouse when Juan P. Lopez and his attorneys Tony Serra and Maria Belyi announce his decision on the Plea Offer.

Matthew Graves is serving an additional 4 years in prison after he declined the District Attorneys’ plea offer. He made a phone call to a protected person a violation of the Restraining Order. That charge was added after he declined the offer to teach him a lesson. He was represented by the Private Defender Program.

Hello Rosemerry,
Could you please provide me with that photo or an explanation as to why the Sheriff’s Office does not think they need to.
Can you confirm his Driver’s License has been suspended for refusing the chemical test?
Is he on Administrative Leave or is he on his normal duty?
Thank You

San Mateo County News.com

Update: 10/24/2019 Congratulations to the Palo Alto Daily Post for their Front Page Story on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino’s DUI Arrest on September 14, 2019. That is 23 days after the SMCN.com article. They are the only one of 7 Print Media in San Mateo County to inform the public. The San Mateo Daily Journal placed it on the Website version I asked Jon Mays if he published it in print copy he has not responded. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Blankswade refuse to even respond to my request for his Booking Photo.

Update 10/21/2019 There is no blood alcohol result because he refused to submit to a chemical test as required by law. This means for the ordinary resident your Drivers License is suspended for 1 year.

Update: 10/17/2019 Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry refuse to even respond to my e-mail request for Booking Photo. Why? It’s public information.

Update: 10/02/2019 9:40PM The court appearance date is October 23, 2019

I know when you read the date below you are going to think this is old News and you are correct. I will say that I am the first News Media to inform the public about it, this is an example of a Those Who Matter case. Special Treatment, What the public doesn’t know won’t hurt them etc. No statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, No statement and even more important No Charges by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Why?

Steve Wagstaffe informed me this morning 10/02/2019 that his office has not received the case from Redwood City Police Department and that would explain why No Charges if it were true, so I sent RWCP an e-mail. Gary Kirk responded RCPD filed the case with the DA’s Office on September 23rd. On September 27th, we received a request for additional information for prosecution from the issuing DA. You may want to call them back to clarify the information they provided. The DA’s case number is 0811082.

September 14, 2019 The Redwood City Police Department arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino for DUI last week after he crashed a car (not his) the car belonged to San Mateo County Sheriff Lieutenant Victoria A. O’Brian.  Location of arrest was Broadway/Arguello St, which just happens to be where the DSA building is located. The arresting Officers transported him to First Chance in Burlingame where he was refused acceptance reason being he was to “Belligerent”. He was than transported to Maguire Jail where he was booked. He had attended a retirement celebration at the Deputy Sheriff Association (DSA) Building on Broadway Street Redwood City, prior to being arrested. So much for “Friends don’t let Friends Drive Drunk.” or “Let me call an UBER, Lyft or a Cab for you.” Better yet “I’ll drive you home.”

His attorney is Josh Bentley. You might ask why do you need an attorney if No Criminal charges are filed? Who called Mr. Bentley and When?

Redwood City Police did respond to my inquiry of the DUI Arrest of Sergeant Lou Aquino and confirmed it. Thank you RWCPD.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide me with the Booking photo. He has remained Silent on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquinos’ arrest. Here is what he was saying just two weeks before the arrest.

“Labor Day should be a time for friends and family to come together to enjoy the last days of summer,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “We need commitment from our community members that they’ll keep the streets free of drunk drivers so that everyone can have a safe holiday. This is a campaign to get the message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes lives. Help us put an end to this senseless behavior,” he said. 

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and NHTSA are reminding citizens of the many resources available to get them home safely. “Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That’s why, during the Labor Day holiday, we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses,” he said. 

San Mateo County Sheriff Det. Rosemerry Blankswade Press Release 2 weeks before Sgt. Aquino’s Arrest.
