The Rachel Amanda Quintana case of Half Moon Bay and SMCSO Sergeant Mike Otte committing Perjury is just one example.

San Mateo County Residents might recall seeing that exact Public Relations Spin in the Hillsborough resident Zain Jaffer Criminal case in October 2017 where he was arrested by the HBPD for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son and 5 other Felony Counts. People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A.
He is the only defendant that I am aware of who had already hired Michael S. Sitrick who the L.A. Times calls “The Wizard of Spin” who had already prepared a Press Release about Zain Jaffer’s case being completely dismissed before anybody knew that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DDA Sharon Cho were going to ask a San Mateo County Judge to dismiss ALL of the charges. He (Zain Jaffer) read the prepared press release at court.
