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.

Former San Mateo Police Officer Noah Winchester Sentenced to 81 years to life.

920x920-4

Sexually assaulting five women while on duty.

This morning Jan 16, 2020, In San Mateo County Superior Court, 400 County Center Redwood City.
San Mateo County prosecutor Alpana Samant asked for 89 years to life in prison.  The defense asked for 10 years, 8 month state prison.  The Hon. Judge Lisa Novak sentenced Noah White Winchester to 81 years to life in prison.

22 charges were filed against a former San Mateo police officer accused of sexually assaulting five women while on duty.

This is still the big question for parents of Daughters, what do you tell them about interacting with Police Officers. Should they pull over right away if they get lit up or continue driving to a very public location. San Mateo County Law Enforcement and the Supervisors have never addressed this very serious issue. Perhaps they should.

SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere got it right. 6 Involved Parties Okobi Homicide.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors met in Closed Session yesterday Jan. 14, 2020 to discuss settling the Maureen Okobi vs. San Mateo County and 5 of its 6 Employees case.

Maureen Okobi is the mother Chinedu Okobi who was legally walking down the sidewalk on the Millbrae side of El Camino Real at 1:00PM on Wednesday October 3, 2018. After interacting with SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees for 9:10 he was completely Unresponsive. When a monitor was put on him 10 minutes later it was Flatlined. At San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office closed to the public Press Conference on March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “What was the Manner of Death?” At that point he confirmed what SMCCO Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz reported in December 2018. Chinedu Okobi’s death was ruled a Homicide.

The only San Mateo County District Attorney Employee to Include SMCSO Employee civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales was SMCDA Inspector Gregory Giguiere 80215

October 3, 2018 2:50PM

San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Trickett was the Incident Commander at the scene. He identified the “Involved Parties.”

Involved Parties:

Sergeant David Weidner

Deputy Joshua Wang

Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti

Deputy John Demartini

Deputy Bryan Watt

Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales

So the question is Who & How many San Mateo County Employees/Elected Officials had knowledge and were involved in the False Narrative of FIVE SMCSO INVOLVED PARTIES.

It’s pretty simple if you are willing to Falsify Police Reports, and produce 3 False Sheriff News Releases (Sheriff Carlos Bolanos & PIO Rosemary Blankswade) Why should the residents of San Mateo County believe anything you say or report?

Video prepared and provided by SMCDA on March 1, 2019

7:21 mark clearly shows CSO Joseph Gonzales spraying O.C. that equals Involved.

Get involved San Mateo County Residents, you are responsible for your elected officials behavior.

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.

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.

Mark Melville Candidate for SMC Sheriff 2022

sjm-l-smcsheriff-0603

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes which was 40% of the 172,168 Ballots cast. 38,140 ballots or 22% of total ballots DID NOT vote for Sheriff according to the San Mateo County Elections Office website. Most of the residents of San Mateo County don’t realize that they are responsible for the behavior and conduct of their Sheriff. The Sheriff Office employees 800 people who are trusted to provide law enforcement services throughout the County. There is ZERO Oversight of this agency.

Melville stands a much better chance to win now that he has the time to get his message out to the voters. That includes the uphill battle to counter the False information provided to the public by the print media. Example SMDJ “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time. I have asked Jon Mays to provide a copy of the Later Reports he has not.

Mark Melville was very direct and specific when talking about his boss Carlos G. Bolanos. “He’s a Liar,” That would have been good information for the SMDJ to pass on to their 84,000 readers/voters of San Mateo County. They choose not to and instead said “We Believe Him.”

KQED Interview

I don’t know if Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has any plans to run for re-election in 2022. I do know he didn’t like to attend candidate forums with Mark Melville present.

As far a transparency goes, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide the Booking Photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino for his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest by the Redwood City Police Department. I asked Candidate Melville as Sheriff would he release that photo? His answer was Yes. That was refreshing, it’s pretty simple that Booking Photo is Public Information. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has issued several False News Releases regarding the October 3, 2018 In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi by six Sheriff Employees. He has refused to respond to several requests regarding the False Information.
