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

How is San Mateo County DDA Melissa Renee Anne McKowan still employed by the District Attorney’s Office?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti protected Melissa McKowan, They should have fired her, criminally charged her and made sure she never practiced law again.

Sad, San Mateo County Supervisors have failed to address Prosecutorial Misconduct for 17 years. This could have easily been avoided.

She not only lied to a victim’s mother, she lied and supplied a false document to SMCDA Chief Deputy M. Guidotti who was investigating the allegations of her lying. Both are criminal acts. The false document was a copy of letter from Special Deputy Trial Counsel, Robert K. Sall dated July 25, 2011 in which she wrote “Not True” in the margins. She knew it was true.
