One reason for the A.G. Request is D.A. Steve Wagstaffe.

The City of Half Moon Bay has finally provided the public with the Video of the September 15, 2020 Special Meeting Sandra L. Harmon Homicide. Thats 14 days.

HMB City Special Meeting September 15, 2020

You only need to watch 2 minutes of the Video from 50:00 – 52:00 mark. This is SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe responding to Six public comments starting at the 27:30 mark.

Here is a Fact 14 Shell Casings were recovered from the crime scene. The 3 Shell casings caused 2 bullet holes in a building that changes the entire story Sheriff Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe promoted.

Steve Wagstaffe says:

“Shell casings get kicked around all the time.” He never addresses the two bullet holes discussed in the Eblovi Public comments at 27:30 mark.

“We did find 11 casings, they mention 3 others.” “In there 11 shots had been fired, we found 11 casings and that was exactly what was expended from the handguns, I think that confirms where we were.

“Shot in the back mantra.” “I don’t believe that to be the case.”

Sandra L. Harmon had three fatal shots to the back according to the Coroners Report.

Welcome to San Mateo County

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Does release BWC Video and Audio under 24 Hours.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Just Not to the Public.

I have been recommending for years that Law Enforcement provide the Unedited Body Worn Camera, and MAV Dash Camera Video and Audio within the first 24 Hours. It turns out Sheriff Bolanos does release it, the question is to whom?

Update: 8:44 AM That person has been identified as Jamie Draper of the District Attorney’s Office.

In the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay California, San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Jon Sebring authorized Someone to access the Evidence.com a data site owned by AXON Inc. The same company that manufactures the devices Law Enforcement uses, Tasers, BWC, MAV Video and Remote Microphone etc.

How do I know this?

Involved Deputy John Baba – BWC Analysis 

On May 6, 2020 I received an Email via Evidence.com sent by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jon Sebring granting me access to the uploaded Body Worn Camera (BWC) and Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage from the Officer Involved Critical Incident (OICI) on May 5, 2020 in the City of Half Moon Bay. 

I located the file for the BWC footage for Involved Deputy John Baba, which I downloaded from Evidence.com. From prior experience and in speaking with Sergeant Sebring, I know that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office currently utilizes the Axon 2 Body Worn Camera (BWC) which records video at 29.98 fps. I uploaded this video file into a video processing software known as VideoMach version 5.15.1 where I was able to mark the “in” and “out” points of the portion of the video which specifically covered the entirety of the incident and was able to remove the non- pertinent portions without altering the original video. I then added overlays which included a timer in the upper left of the video frame, the title “Deputy John Baba – BWC” at the top center of the video frame and absolute frame numbers (AFNs) in the upper right corner of the video frame. Each of these overlays were placed in positions to not interfere with the activity occurring in each video frame. I then finalized the video and saved this new version under the file name “Baba BWC with AFN and timecode”. I also utilized VideoMach to decompile the finished video into 17,619 individual frames to be utilized in this report. 

So there are a couple of Questions here, Who’s is the Author of this report? I have asked San Mateo County District Attorney Senior Inspector Rick Decker that exact question yesterday, He is getting back to me.

The second Question is Why is the Sheriff’s Office providing this data in less than 24 hours to somebody who has the Authority to Edit and add CAPTIONS to promote a False Story.

The third Question, Since the District Attorney’s Office was Investigating this Homicide case, shouldn’t they have controlled the Data?

Since the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting September 15, 2020, after hearing the Eblovi Presentation by 3 speakers at the 27:30 mark, every person attending that meeting especially the City Managers, City Attorney, the Five Councilmembers, and SMC District Attorney all knew the evidence provided showed 3 shell casings were deliberately moved, That’s Evidence Tampering, 2 bullet strikes in a location that only the Eblovi Investigators even bothered to look.

Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired First was the conclusion of the Eblovi Investigation. Everyone in that meeting knew it at that moment. I was shocked I had been working on the Sandra L. Harmon case since May 5, 2020 I never saw those 3 shell casings before even though they were right there. I have gone back and reviewed several videos and photos provided by the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office, and I can confirm the 3 shells can be seen behind Sandra L. Harmon as she is being fired at while she was Unarmed which means they were Fired First just like the Eblovi Investion reported.

That means the entire story provided to the public is False.

Thank You San Mateo Daily Journal. Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

By, Michael G. Stogner

Just because Somebody says something is true does not mean that it is.

The same is true for Captions on a Video released 40 days later.

At -9:06 you will see Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Camera working perfectly well great Resolution and Audio.

-5:11 Caption says “Deputy Dominguez Attempted contact at the Motorhome for potential witnesses.” Why is he looking for more witnesses? It goes on to say, “But instead encountered Ms. Harmon.”

-4:59 Caption: With the fast moving situation with incoming fire, Deputy Dominguez did not activate his Body Worn Camera.

The caption wording “With Incoming Fire.” Implys as fact that Sandra Harmon fired first.

“After Discharging his Service Weapon Ms. Harmon dropped the Shotgun.” That would be before Deputy Baba gets out of his car.

So Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer and several others were involved in producing this Video in the San Mateo Daily Journal Article. Here it is.

SMDJ Article

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not include the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held on September 15, 2020 by ZOOM.

In this video you will see the the first 3 public speakers presenting the Oblovi Investigation at the 27:15 mark clearly providing evidence that came from the SMC Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, it shows Tampering with Evidence 3 shell casings. a Bullet found in the side of a building, They say Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired three shots at Sandra Harmon FIRST.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe does not address the Tampering with Evidence issue, the bullet found that none of the SMC Crime Scene staff found. or that Deputy Dominguez fired First. He simple deflected and said shell casing get moved around kicked etc all the time.

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not mention that fact. I am thankful the SMDJ has finally produced a story where the public can make comments on they used to have a Community Forum for the residents to communicate with each other.

The AXON Log Records have all the data the public needs, you don’t need to rely on Sheriff Bolanos to say something on a video. To this day and for the last 5 months we only have Words and Captions that Sheriff Deputy turned off his Body Worn Camera. The AXON Log Records have been requested multiple times by HMB Resident John Ullom, and myself. The San Mateo County Counsel and the D.A.’s is refusing to provide them even though Steve Wagstaffe told the Council he has No Objection. The FIVE HMB City Council Members should have the City Attorney make the request of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos personally. Forget the SMC Counsel. This investigation is a closed matter as far as the District Attorney Office is concerned.

Video September 15, 2020 HMB Special Meeting

Please remember, Words and Captions are not Evidence,

AXON Log Records lets get them, for the family of Sandra Harmon and all of San Mateo Residents.

City Managers, What duty do they have to provide accurate information to the Public?

By Michael G. Stogner

Ms. Harmon fired the shotgun multiple times at the deputy,

Yesterday while reading the Background I noticed the words Multiple Times were used and I sent an e-mail to the HMB City Leaders and Managers advising them that I had not seen those two words ever used to describe the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide. I recommended they verify the source of Multiple Times and correct ASAP so as to Not Mislead the Public with inaccurate information.

The Shotgun could fire only 1 shot at a time. That would be some accomplishment for her to fire multiple times. What time did she fire the Shotgun? That has never been answered.

I hope they will be able to add these other facts at the beginning of the meeting to balance this presentation.

They also chose to leave out a few Important Facts like the San Mateo County Coroners Report Dated June 12, 2020. She was shot 8 times.

Manner of Death to be Homicide.

Sandra L. Harmon was Fatally Shot Three Times in the BACK.

Sandra L. Harmon was Shot at 5 times while she was Unarmed with her hand up.

Those Facts are not mentioned by the Sheriff”Office, The District Attorney’s Office, The City of Half Moon Bay, or local Newspapers.

ZOOM MEETING 6PM Tomorrow night.

BUSINESS OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HALF MOON BAY AGENDA REPORT

For meeting of: September 15, 2020

TO: Honorable Mayor and City Council
VIA: Bob Nisbet, City Manager
From: Matthew Chidester, Deputy City Manager

TITLE: DISCUSSION WITH THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY REGARDING THE MAY 5, 2020 OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING IN HALF MOON BAY

______________________________________________________________________________

RECOMMENDATION:

Receive a report and discuss the investigation of the District Attorney of the May 5, 2020 shooting of Sandra Harmon in Half Moon Bay by Sheriff’s Deputies.

STRATEGIC ELEMENT:

This discussion supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety and Inclusive Governanceelements of the Strategic Plan.

BACKGROUND:

Since 2011, the City of Half Moon Bay has contracted with the San Mateo County sheriff’sOffice for law enforcement services. On the evening of May 5, 2020, Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call regarding a woman, later identified as Sandra Harmon, who was walking through downtown Half Moon Bay carrying a shotgun and alcohol, and claiming thatthere was going to be a “race war”. According to reports, after interviewing a witness on Main Street, a deputy tracked the lead to a parking lot on the corner of Main Street and Monte Vista Lane, where he was able to make contact with Ms. Harmon. Following a brief verbal exchange, Ms. Harmon fired the shotgun multiple times at the deputy, who returned gunfire. A second deputy arrived on the scene shortly thereafter, and after verbal commands were ignored, Ms. Harmon again reached for her shotgun, which was at that point laying on the ground. Both deputies opened fire and Ms. Harmon was hit several times and died shortly thereafter.

The current practice in San Mateo County is that anytime a member of the public is injured bylaw enforcement, the District Attorney’s office immediately takes over investigation. Althoughsome details of the incident were initially shared with the public, including body-camera footage, the DA maintains confidentiality of most of the investigation materials until completion, and if charges are pressed, through the trail, in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation and prosecution, if necessary.

On August 28, 2020, the District Attorney, Stephen Wagstaffe, issued a letter to the Sheriff detailing the process and findings of the investigation of the shooting of Sandra Harmon (attached to this Staff Report). In the letter, Mr. Wagstaffe concludes that the deputy’s use of

deadly force in this incident was lawful, and that the District Attorney’s office will take nofurther action. On August 28, the DA’s office also provided a press release to the same effect and made the investigation materials available to interested parties.

DISCUSSION:

Several members of the community have expressed concerns about the details and conclusionof the District Attorney’s investigation. The District Attorney has offered to participate in adiscussion with the City Council on the investigation, and answer questions from the Council and general public. On September 15, 2020, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will participate in the regular meeting of the Half Moon Bay City Council for this purpose.

Due to recent events in the nation as well as the Coastside community, the City is taking severalsteps to better understand the relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and the community,the policies and practices that the Sheriff currently has in place, and the contract between the City and County. A public Safety City Council subcommittee has been convened which is working with staff to develop a white paper study to explore several areas of law enforcement in Half Moon Bay, and staff are also facilitating community discussions on law enforcement on the Coastside. The purpose of this work is to develop recommendations and potential changesto the City’s contract with the County, which expires on June 30, 2022, aimed towardsimproving relations between law enforcement and the community, as well as hopefully preventing the types of tragedies experienced across the country and in recent years, within our own community. The discussion with the District Attorney will help provide additional information and clarity in these efforts.

ATTACHMENTS:

Letter dated August 28, 2020 from the District Attorney to Sheriff Carlos Bolanos regarding the Officer Involved Shooting on May 5, 2020.

Axon Evidence.com Sandra L. Harmon Homicide Case.

By Michael G. Stogner

Notice Shotgun on ground and Hands Up.

The above photo is at the 8:07 Mark of Deputy Baba BWC Video. Notice how clear the resolution is.

San Mateo County Residents will remember the October 3, 2018 In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu V. Okobi a Moorehouse Graduate and Father of a daughter who was a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk in Millbrae, when he caught the attention of San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Wang. There was No 911 call, simply Deputy Wang wanted to engage him. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Blankswade Issued two False News Releases after he was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. They left those false statement on the County website for 5 months. Besides killing Chinedu its what the SIX S.O. Employees did or didn’t do for the next 9 minutes after they sat him up with his hands cuffed behind his back. They offered NO CPR and did not check his pulse.

Axon International Inc. is a company that most people think of as a Taser manufacture, but they are much more they also produce the MAV Dash Camera and Remote Microphone Audio, and Body Cameras now used by the Sheriff’s Office and District Office to store Evidence.

That sounds like a Conflict of Interest.

In the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide case it was reported by the Sheriff Office IT rep. that he was unable to download the MAV Videos from two of the Sheriff Patrol Vehicles that day. Also a Menlo Park Police Officer reported that all of the witnesses he interviewed using Axon Body Camera were unable to be downloaded. Seems strange doesn’t.

Now this morning after reviewing San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Evidence Files in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide in Custody of the Sheriff’s Office, I noticed No CAD report, No report of ALL the Axon products/devices downloaded that night. I also noticed that company providing the files is the same company to makes the Body Cameras, MAV, and Tasers.

Sandra L. Harmon was Fatally Shot in the back three times according to the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office who ruled the Manner of Death to be Homicide. Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired at least 5 shots at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. He never mentions that fact. Either does Sheriff Carlos Bolanos or D.A. Steve Wagstaffe.

I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade,

What is the Sheriff’s Office Policy of Firing at an Unarmed Citizen?

How many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the Crime Scene that night?

What time did Sandra Harmon fire the Shotgun? What Evidence to prove that she fired the Shotgun at all?

The Sheriff and his PIO don’t think theses questions deserve to be answered. I think they are, especially when you tell the public that Your Deputy who fired 11 rounds and killed Sandra L. Harmon just happened to turn off his Axon Body Camera that is pretty convenvient.

Half Moon Bay City Council Meeting by ZOOM September 15, 2020 will have San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attending and discussing his 12 page letter to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, where he found no crime had occurred by the Deputies May 5, 2020.

I had asked HMB City Manager Bob Nesbit twice to contact the State of California Attorney General and request an Independent Criminal Investigation by the A.G. or the D.O.J. He chose to meet with his Deputy City Manager and Steve Wagstaffe instead.

City Managers are responsible for the behavior of the Law Enforcement Agencies they contract with. I also asked Bob Nesbit if he had watched the Video provided to the public by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. He did not respond to that simple question. If a City Manager is not willing to watch what the Sheriff provides the public 40 days after a Homicide that he personally described as a Shootout when there has been ZERO Evidence of that Statement, at the 8:01-8:06 mark you will see Sandra Harmon standing Unarmed with hands above her head while been fired at by Deputy Dominguez.

What I noticed this morning is that Evidence.com the website the District Attorney arranged for me to view the Investigation Files is owned by Axon.

Small World.

Supervisor Don Horsley Embarrassed and Ashamed.Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley

San Mateo County Board of Supervisor meeting June 2, 2020 at the 40:10 mark, Supervisor Horsley said “My reaction as somebody who was in Law Enforcement when I saw that Murder of George Floyd I was embarrassed & ashamed.” He went on to say. “I’m not going to bash Law Enforcement.”

BOS meeting June 2, 2020

I have personally asked former School Teacher and Sheriff now Supervisor Don Horsley if he has watched the video of Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018. He has refused to answer my question.

Video created by SMC Government made public 5 months after Homicide

You will notice the Government does not mention the word Homicide. They have known it was a Homicide since Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz determined the Manner of Death to be Homicide on December 31, 2018

“HOMICIDE PROTOCOL” 36-year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Deputies.

Supervisor Don Horsley has a long history of saying words that are not consistent with the truth/reality. That includes under oath, August 2, 2004 a Federal Hearing held in San Mateo, California.

The residents of San Mateo County should have the Attorney General of California give a second opinion on the Six Sheriff Employees, Homicide of Chinedu Okobi.

True in SMC Homicide of Chinedu Okobi 10/03/2018

By Michael G. Stogner

This photo was taken at a protest for George Floyd’s Murder. When I saw the Kill Now Lie Later I couldn’t help but think about Chinedu Okobi being killed by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees and ALL the Lies that followed. The Lie Later could be minutes or hours as evidenced by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos two News Releases.

Omitting the 6th Sheriff Employee CSO Gonzales
Sherif Carlos G.Bolanos created this lie

Chinedu Okobi was not running in and out of traffic, and did not immediately assault the deputy. Sheriff Bolanos left both of these false statements on the County’s website for 5 months.

The Lie could be 19 days later as example Sgt. Irfan Zaidi “I directed Deputy Lorenzatti to remove the metal handcuffs from the subject, which she did, and the subject was placed on his back.

This is a 100% fabrication by a SMC Sergeant 19 days after the Homicide. Zaidi was NOT involved in the Homicide but filed a false report.

March 1, 2019 60 days after Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz determined the manner of death to be a Homicide, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and his top management team held this closed to the public Press Conference which I attended.

The Lie later could also be 5 months later and 2 months after it was determined to be a Homicide.

SMC COUNTY D.A. Provides public his highly edited video and reports.

They don’t mention the Homicide. Why?

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

San Mateo County Release the Videos, Audios Today. Identity the Deputies involved. It’s been 7 days since she was killed.

At 3:52:22 My public comment was read by Suki into the public record.

  • Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>May 5 at 8:11 AM
  • To:Sukhmani S. Purewal
  • Cc: Jeff Regan, Dave Pine, Don Horsley, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom and 1 more…Tue,
  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You
    Michael G. Stogner

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.

Who was the Bailiff for Judge Lisa Novak January 4-5 2017?

By Michael G. Stogner

I would like to personally thank Him/Her for doing their job and honoring the Oath they took. Since 1998 I have known that crimes are being committed in San Mateo County Courtrooms in front of Sheriff Deputies who are sworn officers. They have a Duty to protect the Public.

This for the moment unknown Sheriff Deputy did the right thing. He/She informed Hon. Judge Lisa Novak that he had personally viewed the Video that Sheriff Sergeant Michael Edward Otte just testified to under oath & the penalty of Perjury that he never took with his personal cellphone. At the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, she informed the judges in attendance that She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom. You would think that is Newsworthy not in San Mateo County.

Former Sheriff Sergeant Otte has quietly moved on and he has Invoked his 5th amendment rights.

Who in SMC knew about this Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, County Counsel John Beiers and Deputy Counsel David Silberman? Several Judges,

You would have thought the Government would have cut this case loose after this but that is not how it works in San Mateo County.

16-SM-001677-A | The People of the State of California vs. Rachel Amanda Quintana 

Think about that this for a moment, you are a woman who lives in Half Moon Bay, you have 2 brothers who recently had interactions with SMCSO who provide law enforcement services there. You take the time to personally go to the Substation and report your concerns about those interactions. A short time later YOU are arrested at your home, Sgt. Otte is videoing it on his cellphone. You are in the court system for 4 years. San Mateo County Counsel is going to inflict as much personal pain and suffering on you as possible.

I support Rachel Amanda Quintana.

San Mateo County’s Above the Law Gang.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was ordered to stay home when he was the subject of an Internal Affairs Investigation. That is exactly what happens.

What about SMCSO Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino, and SMCDA Inspectors William Massey & John Warren? Were they ordered to stay home?

Hello Rosemerry,

As you know it’s important for the Public’s Trust that Nobody is above the law.

Was SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino ever placed on Administrative Leave after his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest.

Who at the Sheriff’s Office conducted the Internal Affairs Investigation that you told the PADP was being conducted? Is it completed?

Please provide San Mateo County News.com with the Booking Photo from the Sheriff’s office as you know I have asked for this several times.

Did DMV suspend his California Drivers License yes or no?

Thank You

January 7, 2020 San Mateo County Counsel filed a document with the Superior Court claiming the San Mateo County District Attorney Inspectors William Massey and John Warren are the subjects of an Internal Investigation which just recently commenced, is ongoing and will not be completed until the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal trial is completed. 

Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s criminal case has been going for more than 5 yrs.

It is a Penal Code 115A Felony to file a False Instrument (written document) with the court.

San Mateo County Counsel than asked the court to SEAL their Document. January 9, 2020

    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
