Outrageous Government Conduct

Juan P. Lopez

Update: Next Court Date is Jan 9, 2020 9:00AM S.S.F.

Update: Next court date is November 18, 2019 2:00 P.M. Courtroom 8-C Redwood City.

The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office is not to be Political or used as a Weapon. Tell that to San Mateo County District Attorney Senior Inspector William Massey.

A reasonable person would think that the Five Supervisors (Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, David Canepa) of San Mateo County would do everything in their power to assure the PUBLIC that this could NEVER happen on their watch.

A reasonable person would think that San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers and David Silberman would do everything in their power to assure the PUBLIC that this could NEVER happen on their watch.

A reasonable person would think that San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy would do everything in his power to assure the PUBLIC that this could NEVER happen on his watch.

I know for a fact that all of the above mentioned San Mateo County Leaders are very aware because for the last 20 years I have been keeping them informed. Public comments at the Board of Supervisor meetings, sending them copies of my articles from SMCN.com. This is a Five year case finally soon to be heard by a Jury.

Next Court Date is November 12, 2019, 9:00 AM, 400 County Center Redwood City.

All concerned citizens are welcome to attend as these motions will be heard.

November 6, 2019 SSF Court 1:30 PM

X Deputy Juan P. Lopez will inform the court of his response to the District Attorneys Office Offer of No Prison Time if he accepts the deal.

Everyone in San Mateo County remembers Five years ago he was arrested at gun point in front of his son for Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Inmate at the Redwood City Jail. Big press conference by D. A. Wagstaffe at the time, It was also reported he embezzled up to $400,000 of campaign donations. One small problem with that was he only raised about $400.00. Those charges were all dismissed because of Prosecutorial Misconduct. He is now being offered a deal to plead guilty to charges that came from the BACKPACK that was stolen from his car which was parked at his condo in Redwood City. That theft happened shortly after he filed papers as a Write In Candidate for Sheriff. A search warrant was then created looking for what they already had “Documents that were stolen” Mortgage Fraud the owner occupied box had a check mark in it. The lender never filed a complaint.

Any concerned citizens/residents are invited to join us in court November 6, 2019

I first met Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez right after he announced he was going to be a candidate for Sheriff in San Mateo County in 2014. I thanked him for giving the residents a choice for Sheriff. I was on the phone with him when he got arrested at gun point at one of his homes. I was with him when the Sheriff’s Office served him with legal papers at his home, I opened the door and greeted the 2 Sheriff Deputies. I was with him and another concerned citizen Lamont Phemister when the Sheriff’s Office ordered him to be at the Gun Range to receive more legal papers. The first time they gave him 90 minutes notice, the second time 4 day notice.

Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was charged with 14 Felony Counts 5 years ago. The District Attorney’s Office, The Sheriff’s Office and County Counsel’s Office have done everything possible to cause harm to him and those close to him. He has lost 5 years of Income, his last year he earned about $250,000. He has hired 2 Law Firms you can guess that cost is over $200,000.

Now Five Years later the District Attorneys Office Offers a Plea Bargain the day It’s lead Investigator Jordan Boyd was to take the Witness stand. Tomorrow he and his attorneys will inform the Court and all of San Mateo County his response.

I personally think that is Newsworthy I might be wrong.

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.

No Reporters have asked Deputy Lopez how he felt about that.

Case dismissed against former deputy

21253_main

Juan P. Lopez

Juan Lopez

The case against a former San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy being charged for allegedly helping to smuggle cellphones and prescription drugs into county jail was dismissed Friday after a judge ruled evidence that could have showed he did not commit the crime should have been presented to a criminal grand jury.

But District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Judge Donald Ayoob is imposing a burden on the prosecution that the law does not require. He said prosecutors informed grand jury members of letters an inmate wrote recanting his testimony connecting Juan Pablo Lopez, 54, with a cellphone involved in the case, and were not required to present them unless the jury asked to see them. He disagreed with Judge Donald Ayoob’s ruling that prosecutors had a duty to present the letters, and said prosecutors may consider refiling the case or appealing the decision.

“We feel the judge made a very serious error in his ruling,” he said. “We will assess it the coming days.”

 

On Dec. 16, 2015, Lopez and two county jail correctional officers, George Ismael and Michael Del Carlo, were accused of providing cellphones and drugs to inmate Dionicio Rafael Lopez Jr., who was also indicted along with Leticia Lopez, Amanda Lopez and Roxanne Ingebretsen, according to prosecutors.

On Nov. 17, the case against Del Carlo was dismissed after Ayoob granted his motion to dismiss over strenuous prosecution objection, according to prosecutors.

Once a write-in candidate for county sheriff, Lopez is also being accused of embezzlement, perjury and election fraud based on allegations he used donations from his campaign for his own personal use and lied about his city of residence, according to prosecutors.

Lopez listed his residence as being in Redwood City but allegedly was living in Newark when he filed to run for sheriff in 2014. He is also being accused of misrepresenting his address on a real estate loan, according to prosecutors.

Lopez will next appear in court Jan. 25 to set a new jury trial date for the embezzlement, perjury and election fraud charges and is out of custody on a $170,000 bail bond, according to prosecutors.

Anna Schuessler Daily Journal staff has this statement wrong–Lopez will next appear in court Jan. 25 to set a new jury trial date for the embezzlement, perjury and election fraud charges and is out of custody on a $170,000 bail bond, according to prosecutors.
Jan. 25, 2018 is to hear the motion for 2nd case remaining charges.
SM Daily Journal , please contact his attorney for clarification.

To correct the San Mateo Daily Journal, former Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez next court hearing is January 25, 2018. I am requesting the newspaper to contact his attorney about this date.

I hope the local and national media will follow the rest of this case, I am sure the rest of the phony charges will be dropped.

When will the San Mateo County public/voters going to wake up?
San Mateo County District Attorney’s office is trying to destroy former Deputy Sheriff Juan Lopez.
I hope someone will get this to the national media.
I can only imagine how much money this is causing former Deputy Juan Lopez.
PLEASE HELP GET THIS OUT TO EVERYONE!!!

Let me get this straight. Wagstaffe’s little pal Sheriff Munks and Under-sheriff Carlos Bolanos are caught going into a house of underaged trafficked prostitution in Las Vegas in 2007, for their own recreation. Wagstaffe defends them to the hilt and says they did nothing wrong. He sweeps it under the rug.

But when a clean deputy decides to run against the corruption of the San Mateo Sheriff, Wagstaffe and Munks punish him by cooking up suspect charges that don’t hold up light when examined AND hold a big press conference to announce it? Lopez wasn’t the one caught going into a place with underaged trafficked girls. The fact that someone dared to challenge the corrupt sheriff angered Wagstaffe and Munks. Something is rotten in San Mateo County

The District Attorney’s Office withheld the letters from the Grand Jury, and offered a not so truthful representation of what the Jailhouse snitch actually said. To this day there has been ZERO evidence that Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was connected to the cellphone/s and drugs, and the DA’s Office has always known that fact. Disgusting behavior.

Michael Stogner

It’s about time, After over 3 years of the District Attorney’s lies and false charges against Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and others a Judge finally got to see what the DA’s office has done. It shouldn’t take over 3 years to present your side of a case. This dismissal makes 4 for 4 defendants charges dismissed.

San Mateo County D.A.’s office has a long list of cases of injustice, for the people who know, lies are not too uncommon.
