It all started with this case.

My only experience observing the Hon. Judge Jeffrey R. Finigan was one afternoon I was covering the San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case. I drove up from Monterey County for the 1:30 PM Court Hearing, I identified myself to the Bailiff and the Court Clerk asked them if I was in the right court for the Sgt Lou Aquino case. They confirmed I was so I sat there for 3 hours until I was the last person for the public there. Judge Finigan asked me what I was there for and the Clerk informed I was there for the Aquino case. He informed me that case was already handled for the day, I asked him if that occurred in the courtroom or in chambers, He responded in Chambers. So time invested to report on the Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case that one day only, was 4 hours travel plus 3 hours sitting in the Hon. Judge Jeffrey Finigan’s Courtroom equals 7 Hours and there was NOTHING done in front of the Public. It’s not that easy to report on the San Mateo County Courts.
San Mateo County News.com was the first News and Information Service to provide the public with the facts about his arrest on September 14, 2019.
In order to report about Sgt. Aquino’s arrest I had to drive up from Monterey County to the Redwood City Police Department to see for myself the OTHER Daily Log Record that exists and there it was.
