San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte Committed Perjury, Why wasn’t he charged? Selective Prosecution.

By Michael G. Stogner

On January 4 and 5, 2017, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak heard a motion to dismiss in People v. Rachel Quintana (No. 16-SM-001677) San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte testified under oath that he did not take a video of the arrest on his cellphone. Another SMCSO Deputy NICHOLAS P. Kostielney on February 2, 2016 Filed a supplemental report after the arrest Kostielney stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.” Filing a false police report is a crime.

As it would turn out a person at the arrest took out his cellphone and videoed Sgt. Otte videoing the arrest. Also Judge Novak’s Bailiff came up to her and reported that he had viewed the video Sgt. Otte just lied about under oath. Good Job to the bailiff.

January 20, 2017 at a Judges Meeting, Judge Lisa Novak informed the Court’s Judges that she had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself.

How many Judges attended the Judge’s Meeting and have known from that moment on that at least two San Mateo County Sheriff Employees committed perjury and did not make sure that the District Attorney’s Office Prosecute them. How many Attorneys at San Mateo County Counsel’s Office know this information. Finally how Supervisors of SMC and their staff know this information.

The D.A.’s office does in fact charge some people with perjury, 4 witnesses in the Sunny Day Murder trials as an example.

Also this relationship that Judge Novak shared should be broken up.

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.

Are SMCDA Inspectors William Massey and John Warren on Administrative Leave during this Alleged Internal Investigation?

By Michael G. Stogner

January 7, 2020 San Mateo Counsel Attorney Joseph Charles filed a Motion to Quash Subpoenas involving San Mateo County District Attorney Office Inspectors William Massey and John Warren. He claimed without offering any evidence to support it that the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office is investigating itself which as you can imagine if true at the very least is a Terrible Idea when you consider the Conflict of Interest. Attorney Charles refuses to say when the alleged Investigation started, and Who is conducting the investigation if in fact there is one at all. The simple reason I say that is an outside agency should be conducting that investigation to avoid the appearance of a Conflict of Interest. The give away in attorney Charles filing was that the Investigation is

recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.”

The Defendant in this case is the forced to retire Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and the underlying criminal trial has been in the court system for 5 years and 2 months. Most likely will not go to trial till July 2020. The alleged Investigation which has a No End In Site ETA should take a Maximum of 30 days to complete, they have had 73 days to do it so far.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Top Two Investigators being Investigated. By Who?

By Michael G. Stogner

This might come as a surprise to the residents of San Mateo County but Attorneys file False Instruments with the Courts every single day, Would the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office do it? Sure it’s possible, lets find out. The District Attorney’s Office had 73 days to Investigate Massey and Warren, why the long delay. Who’s left in the D.A.’s office to conduct an Internal Investigation of the top two anyway?

Update: 1/10/2020 San Mateo County Counsel Attorney Joseph F. Charles appeared and his two clients D.A. Inspectors William Massey and John Warren remained outside the courtroom for several hours. They did not take the witness stand but never the less it was good to see them there. Mr. Charles asked for and got his Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 SEALED. Why would he ask for that?

Another attorney (female) from San Mateo Counsel Office representing the Five Sheriff Employees who were there to testify and one unnamed Sheriff Employee involved in a Belmont “incident” while not on duty many years ago, and had nothing to do with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ( according to her) was there to make sure the Belmont Police report was not only not made public but that Juan Lopez’s Attorneys could not see it either. The Judge temporarily SEALED it to give the Government time to file a motion to seal.

Note: Attorney David Washington sued the City of Belmont November 13, 2014 for not providing the Police Report involving Sgt. Jason Edward Peardon, I know this because I filed the suit and personally served the City of Belmont Attorney. The PADP did a story on it the next day, the attorney claimed the suit was unnecessary and a phone could have resolved this matter. Within a couple of days the City of Belmont retained a Law Firm across the bay and Never provided the Police Report.

The Statement by San Mateo County Counsel that “Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon has nothing to do with the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.” case is Laughable, He is the Juan Lopez case. Finally the Belmont Police Report surfaces only to be SEALED.

According to a Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 by Deputy Counsel Joseph F. Charles SBN 228456 in Case No. NF433910A former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. Mr. Lopez’s next court date is Tomorrow Jan. 09,2020 9:00AM SSF court Hon. Judge Danny Chou.

San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers Office just filed a motion Yesterday Jan. 7, 2020 to Quash Subpoenas for District Attorney’s Office Senior Inspector William Massey and Chief Inspector John Warren to testify tomorrow.

“In response to the October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint served by Defendant Lopez, the San Mateo County District Attorney Office has commenced an Internal Investigation into  the allegations made by Defendant in his October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint has recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.” This internal investigation subsumes all of the factual issues raised in the Citizen Complaint which include events that transpired as far back as 2015. More importantly Defendant’s criminal trial is likely to reveal the names of witnesses, events, information and additional evidence directly relevant to the District Attorney Office internal investigation into alleged misconduct (and potentially criminal misconduct) allegedly engaged in by law enforcement personnel.

How do they know when x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s underlying criminal trial is going to be completed?

What date was this Investigation opened and Who is conducting it?

Why wasn’t this Investigation opened several years ago when Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez filed a lawsuit with the exact same complaint?

thumbnail-2Senior Inspector John Warren, Lets hope this is on his off time.

Update 5:40 PM 1/8/2020 No response from San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers yet.

Michael:
I hope you also had a good holiday season.
As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

Best,

John

California DMV Computer Hacked, Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is not Breaking News as you can see old story.

As a Private Victim’s Advocate I have personally filed a criminal complaint to both the State of California Attorney General Kamala Harris and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe & John Warren, then publicly informed Board of Supervisors.

SMCBOS Meeting June 2, 2015 at 19:40 minute mark

The criminal complaint was simple, some person(s) Hacked the State of California’s DMV Data Base. They placed San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s confidential and protected drivers license number on another person’s ticket out of Los Angeles area causing him to have a suspended license and about $6,000 expense plus 3 months of no driving.

Who would have the ability to do that?

You might have guessed it, neither law enforcement agency had any interest in Investigating the complaint. There lies the problem No Oversight of Law Enforcement.

By Sarah Navratil & Michael G. Stogner

December 27, 2018 and signed off on December 31, 2018, Became public on March 1, 2019 after the San Mateo County District Attorney made it available on their website. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a Private Press Conference where he gave a 26 minute presentation of the Investigation of the In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi. HOMICIDE was never mentioned.

We at San Mateo County News.com can just imagine the pressure she must have felt for simply doing the job she was hired to do. The amount of other SMC Employees who had knowledge of her Homicide ruling and Omitted that word is shocking.

Congratulations Heather Diaz.

San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz # 21 stated: “Upon arrival of Paramedics and Fire Personnel Chinedu Okobi was assessed and found to be unresponsive.”

“As the death was the result of multiple measures to subdue Chinedu Okobi by law enforcement, and based on the information contained in the Coroner’s Investigation Report, Toxicology Report, medical records, and multiple videos, 

“I have determined the manner of death to be homicide.”

March 1, 2019 SMCDA’s Work Product made public.

SMCDA Inspectors Jamie Draper and John Warren should be on the Brady List.

By Michael G. Stogner

A reasonable person would expect the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Lead Investigator and his boss to provide Honest & Accurate Information at all times. In the Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Homicide Investigation involving SIX Sheriff Employees that is not the case.

Inspector Jamie Draper identifies CSO Joseph Gonzales as a Witness not a Participant. Why? He’s the one spraying the O.C. spray in the video.

The statement below was provided (Unknown date) by SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper and approved by SMCDA John Warren.

OMMISSION: Homicide

December 31, 2018 Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 

“I have determined the manner of death to be Homicide.”

CORONERS REPORT SUMMARY

On December 31, 2018 I received the Coroner’s Office Report, prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. The report included redacted sections related to Decedent Chinedu Okobi’s medical treatment on October 3, 2018 as well as redacted sections related to his previous medical and mental treatments pursuant to 56.10 of the California Civil Code. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz included a summary of the attempts by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office personnel to detain Decedent Okobi and noted Okobi was found be “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment.

  1. prepared by Coroner’s Investigator Heather Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  2. The “Conclusion Report” by Coroner’s Investigator Diaz. Heather Diaz is Deputy Coroner.
  3. “unresponsive” upon the arrival of paramedics and fire personnel on the scene. It should be noted that this information is contrary to what was scene upon review of the Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage at the scene. The video provided to the public by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe CONFIRMS Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz’s statement.
  4. and from the statements provided by fire department paramedics who stated they had determined Decedent Okobi had a pulse and was breathing when they arrived on scene to begin treatment. Jamie Draper should identify the Fire Department Paramedics by name and what time on the video did that take place, there are NO CAPTIONS and the video DOES NOT support his statement.

On March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a private Press Conference announcing his decision not to charge the Five Sheriff Employees with any criminal charges. During his 26 minute presentation he Omitted the SIXTH Sheriff Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales and Omitted the word Homicide. That only popped out at the 47:40 mark when KQED Reporter Julie Small asked what was the manner of Death?

That doesn’t seem very Honest does it?

Steve Wagstaffe also stated:“From that point on” approaching the 9 minute mark on the video.” “The Sheriff Office and our review of their conduct is done. Sheriff Office turned him over to AMR.”

The video that Mr. Wagstaffe provided the public does NOT SUPPORT that statement, it shows AMR people at 17:54 mark. not approaching the 9 minute mark. That is a 9 minute difference, not a couple of seconds.

San Mateo County Supervisors refuse to respond to Agenda request.

By Michael G. Stogner
E-mail sent November 14, 2019
Dear Supervisors,
Could you please put this subject on the agenda so the public could decide who is the more legitimate News & Information Source for the approx. 800,000 residents of San Mateo County. Also if you could have a chat with Carlos G. Bolanos and David Silberman on this topic. As you know District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has recognized me as a Citizen Journalist and approved my attending his March 1, 2019 Press Conference regarding the Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees of Chinedu Okobi, for Credentialed Press Only. I’m providing just this one example of a Newsworthy Story that I published 23 days before any other media in San Mateo County did. I accomplished this without any cooperation as you can see from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. I will be more than happy to compare my articles with all other media. I have shared this article with the SMDJ, The Almanac, Half Moon Bay Review because the Sheriff’s Office provides Law Enforcement Services to many of their readers. Just Google the subject to see their coverage.
