SMCDA prosecutor Benjamin Germain Blumenthal is handling one of the most important criminal cases in San Mateo County History. Honorable Judge Robert Foiles issued the arrest warrant August 13, 2018 for failure to appear in court to face charges by some unknown person. In order to fail to appear one would have to receive an invitation, not just send a letter to an address that’s no longer used with no signature of receipt required. Unless the intention was to get the warrant on the record in the first place which causes harm to Jody Williams.
Illegally appointed and recently elected but not sworn in yet Sheriff Carlos Bolanos is going to hate this criminal case. He has been refusing to answer any questions about his detainment and being transported to LVMPD that night of April 21, 2007 in Las Vegas. He has admitted the obvious (he was detained) but refuses to admit to being transported. Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf who was the President of the DSA that night says they were both transported to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department holding cell.
Jody Williams who was there that night confirms UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos was Transported from 3474 Eldon St. just as SMCSO Deputy Heinz Pushendorf has been saying.
Jody Williams was the first person to report that the 24 women and a minor did NOT arrive at the Salvation Army facility for 72 hour protection as was required.
Jody Williams was the person that caused the raid that night that caught SMC Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff in FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse.
The voters of SMC will remember this last election that Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville told all editors and reporters that “Carlos Bolanos is a Liar.”
Back to this huge criminal case, it is a single count Misdemeanor practicing law without a license.
Judicial Officer Foiles, Robert D
Hearing Time 8:30 AM
09/13/2018 Failure To Appear
09/13/2018 Arrest Warrant ordered
Judicial Officer Foiles, Robert D
09/13/2018 Case sent to D.A. for affidavit.
09/13/2018 Bail to be set by judge.
10/02/2018 Warrant issued
10/02/2018 Declaration in support of Criminal Complaint filed
10/02/2018 Order to seal police report pursuant to PC 964 / local rule
10/02/2018 Police Report ordered sealed per PC 964
What they are calling the Police Report is really the San Mateo County District Attorney Investigative report. There was no other police agency involved. You will also see the Declaration in support of the Criminal Complaint filed ….has been SEALED. Why?
Remember this is a Misdemeanor.
It is common for a DDA to lie to a judge in San Mateo County, just look at the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case it’s consistent from the very beginning. Next court date October 17, 20018 SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando hopefully on the witness stand.
San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has a new Standard of Practice. I recently assisted a single mother of two file a criminal complaint against her ex a SMCSO Deputy for filing a false Instrument with the Family Law Court a PC115A violation. Rick Decker asked the mother to take a polygraph test, she jumped at the offer and passed. This was pretty funny she is not the person who committed a crime.
I hope the District Attorney’s has had the Unknown Person take a Polygraph test.
To recap: A notice to appear not served, an arrest warrant issued, no idea who the complaint party is, and no idea of what the criminal complaint is it’s SEALED.
Update: Hon. Judge Gerald J. Buchwald signed a Search Warrant prepared by Inspector Jamie Draper the date was July 12, 2018, and it was subject to an order delaying notification for up to 90 days. That is why the case records don’t have that secret information.
DDA Ben Blumenthal refuses to answer questions about his case.

Subject: Jody Williams case.
I’ve known Jody Williams for many years, I look forward to reporting on this case. If you have any comments or press releases in the future please include me in your e-mail lists.
Are you allowed to comment on what the actual charge is right now?
Have you asked the complainant to take a Polygraph test?

That sounds pretty fair and honest doesn’t it.
