San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos sent a 4 man TEAM of his finest Employees to Indiana recently. The TEAM was lead by Lt. Michael Leishman, It included Sergeant Sean Harper, Deputy Leddy, and Deputy Bradley P. Mulvihill. My question for the TEAM of 4, Did it ever cross your mind that this assignment was a TERRIBLE idea? Possibly even Criminal. I’ll bet if it didn’t cross your mind before you boarded your fligh, it has after ABC 7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes published his Video News Report about your adventure. As of last night after the story broke more then 2 MILLION Views and More than 10,000 COMMENTS.
San Mateo County Superior Court Judges, Is there any reason that Mark Racop of Indiana can not appear for his first court appearance on August 19, 2022 by ZOOM? What is the time estimate for this first appearance? Isn’t there still a PANDEMIC?
Lets not forget, Just because San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office say you committed a crime and charge you with a crime doesn’t mean that it is true.
Have the above mentioned agencies EVER Falsely charged any person before? Yes
Have the above mentioned agencies EVER Falsely charged a person simply to teach her/him a lesson about San Mateo County’s “Those Who Matter” Gang. Yes, Just ask ret. Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez
Are there any RED FLAGS about these Criminal Charges of a small business owner in Indiana?
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the first RED FLAG.
San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Michael Leishman is the 2nd RED FLAG. Does anybody remember the San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation involving several people and Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars?
SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman was instrumental in producing the desired outcome of that Criminal Investigation. A reasonable person would know that it is a CONFLICT of INTEREST for a San Mateo County Sheriff Employee to investigate his Boss and co-workers. Lt. Michael Leishman had no problem with it.

Today December 20, 2021 at 10:00 AM in Courtroom 2A the Hon Judge Barbara Mallach will rule on a Motion to Destroy all of the records in the People vs. Zainali Jaffer case 17NF012415A. The Public is invited to attend in person.
Who filed the Motion to Destroy all records and Body Worn Camera Video?
I call this the “Magic Case” because of the “Magic Meeting” held on June 7, 2018
Who is speaking for the two Children?
Diminished Capacity is No Excuse for Criminal Conduct
This case should be taught at every law school in the United States of America. NOT Destroyed.
This case was Very Fast from start to finish, How and Why?
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.
As it turns out a San Mateo County Resident was arrested and Criminally Charged with three Felony Sexual Assault counts Bail was $500,000 and 47 days later his case is complete all the Sexual Assault charges are dismissed. This would be a good case for an AUDIT to simply find out what really happened. Was a man falsely charged in the first place? There is No Comment from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos about his Sheriff Investigators and their work on this case. What are their thoughts?
Sean Gallagher and Steve Wagstaffe offered Mr. Banister to reduce this case to 1 count a Misdemeanor, Why? and Why so fast?
San Mateo County Sheriff Office arrested Mr. Banister on August 31, 2021 after Investigating the Sexual Assault allegations. The Investigation started on August 2, 2021, A Judge issued a $500,000 Warrant for his arrest based on the SMCSO work product.
San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office filed the charges below on November 1, 2021, that’s 2 months after his arrest. So the District Attorney’s Office had two months to review the SMCSO Investigators work and they confirmed the three Felony sexual assault charges on an 11 year old victim.
On November 30, 2021 this offer was read in court, that is 29 days after the charges were approved and filed, What changed? What Happened?
I was not able to report what the District Attorney’s Offer was on November 30, 2021 because I was not sitting in the Courtroom. Also not in the Courtroom that morning was defendant Michael D. Banister and his defense attorney Joseph Goethals. They appeared by zoom or phone.
Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo Presiding Judge Leland Davis III cancelled the Public Access by Telephone on November 22, 2021. He has never explained Why? It can’t be because it’s safe to attend court in person now, So it must be some other really Important reason.
“The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.“
The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has a Victim’s Advocate. Did the Victim’s Advocate meet with the child and did he/she agree with this offer?
Did the parents of the victim agree with the offer?
This Letter to the Editor was published today December 8, 2021 in the Half Moon Bay Review. Very few of the 760,000 Residents of San Mateo County have any idea that this Big Change has even occurred, Not one of the many local Newspapers have even bothered to inform their readers. It could be because they don’t have any reporters covering the Courts and none of them are even aware of this change.
San Mateo County Superior Court would have us believe this pandemic is over.
On Nov. 22, the Superior Court announced on its website that Remote Access, which enables the public to listen via telephone to courtroom proceedings, has been discontinued, effective immediately.
No explanation nor advanced notice was given. Other Bay Area counties’ Superior Courts and even the Ninth District Federal Court in San Francisco continue to provide courtroom audio via telephone.
This is a public health issue. Requiring that courtroom observers attend court proceedings in person at the 400 County Center Building in Redwood City is risky and inconvenient during this pandemic — especially so for those who reside along the coast.
Ironically, the announcement adds that Superior Court will begin to convene some court proceedings via Zoom in order to eliminate the need for court trial participants to attend hearings in person. It states, “This is to reduce the number of visits by the public to the courthouses, thereby minimizing potential infection of the public and staff.” Yet court watchers must attend in person. Sounds as if someone wants to stifle public oversight of the San Mateo County court system.
Public trials assure defendants a fair and honest playing field, and accurate reporting of court proceedings is critical to the public’s right to know. We want to trust the system, the judges, the clerks, the court reporters. We want the Remote Access telephone lines reinstated.
I was on the Public Access phone line for 3 hours waiting to hear the court proceeding just like I have done many times this last 2 years. The phone line and code worked perfectly, other than I got disconnected about 8 times and had to re-dial which I did. At no time was there a notification that the Telephonic Public Access had been discontinued. I checked the Court case file and saw it was already Held and Completed.
Here are 10 other Counties close to San Mateo County, They still think there is a Pandemic.
Who would want to cut off the Telephonic Public Access? A more important question is WHO did cut it off? What has recently happened in San Mateo County Superior Courts that would caused this change. The only thing I can think of is recently, Hon. Judge Joseph Scott, his Court Clerk Katrina Bihl and the Court Reporter all conspired and committed Perjury in the x Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez 7 year criminal case.
Tuesday, 5/11/2021 Time 9:00 AM: To Listen Call 1-425-650-1381 Code 425463
Defendant Juan Pablo Lopez Jury Trial Day 6 of Motions, Judge Leland Davis III, Courtroom 2H
Hon. Judge Joseph Scott has been out of the Courtroom on a Medical Emergency since April 1, 2021.
Judge Davis should have an update in the morning.
A little background I call this the San Mateo County District Attorney Supervisor of the Inspectors William Massey case. Remember back to 2014 Sheriff Deputy Juan Lopez decided to offer the residents a choice for Sheriff in 2014.
William Massey did not like that idea and contacted the Employer of Juan’s finance and told him to Fire her. He refused do it so of course William Massey contacted him again with a more forceful demand to fire her.
DDA Kimberly Perrotti doesn’t want William Massey on the witness stand, I don’t blame her.
Anyhow it’s been 6.5 years, there is more than one way to destroy a person, when the D.A. Office is used as a weapon, False Charges like the Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to an inmate. What happened to those charges? You would think your D.A. shouldn’t falsely charge Who’s going to know, or Who’s going to care?
What did the DSA do for Deputy Lopez? Nothing That’s strange.
