San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe refuses to answer ACLU questions regarding June election. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Mateo County residents are just starting to realize that they are responsible for the behavior of the Sheriff and the District Attorney’s Office. Steve Wagstaffe so far is running unopposed in the June 5, 2018 election. That in itself should cause the residents to ask Why? Out of all the employees in the DA’s Office there is not one who believes he/she could do a better job than Steve Wagstaffe. Not one person willing to offer the residents a choice for one of the most important and powerful elected offices in San Mateo County.

Just look at the Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case for Abuse of Authority, Prosecutorial Misconduct.

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.
