Deputy accused of girl’s sexual assault

A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy assigned to handle sensitive sex abuse crimes, often involving vulnerable minors, has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 14-year-old girl in a case he was investigating.
Neil Kimball was taken into custody Friday evening after a monthlong inquiry into the allegations by the sheriff’s criminal internal investigation bureau. He was booked on suspicion of rape by force and preventing or dissuading a victim from testifying.
The 45-year-old investigator with the special victims unit met the girl during the “scope of his work,” a department spokeswoman said Monday.
Kimball, a 20-year department veteran, has investigated dozens of child molestation cases in Los Angeles County as a member of the elite specialized unit since 2013.
“The investigation and arrest resulted from information provided to the department by a member of the public,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. It did not announce the arrest Friday and provided the statement after an inquiry by The Times.
Kimball was investigated previously, after a woman told the Sheriff’s Department in February 2009 that Kimball had grabbed her hand several months earlier and tried to make her touch his genitals, according to a memo from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Prosecutors ultimately declined to charge Kimball in the case.
Addressing questions about why Kimball was selected to join the Special Victims Bureau despite the 2009 investigation, the department said in a statement: “The prior allegations involving Det. Kimball were presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office and criminal charges were declined due to insufficient evidence. The department will conduct a review of the internal process related to Det. Kimball’s assignment at Special Victims Bureau.”
The statement also said that a review of Kimball’s prior cases is underway to ensure that there are no additional victims.
Officials said the department has not reached out to prosecutors because there are no pending cases or allegations.
News of the arrest sent a tremor through the ranks of sex crime investigators, who are normally thoroughly vetted before receiving such assignments.
Dan Scott, a retired Sheriff’s Department sergeant in the special victims unit who has investigated hundreds of child sex abuse cases, said of Friday’s arrest: “This is a shock. The unit has never had something like this happen.”
The alleged attack occurred in November 2017 in Ventura County, said Ventura County Chief Assistant Dist. Atty. Michael Schwartz, whose office has been involved in the case for the last month. L.A. County sheriff’s internal criminal affairs investigators reached out to the Ventura County office for assistance, officials said.
Kimball was relieved of duty with pay and was booked at the Los Angeles County Inmate Reception Center shortly after 11 p.m. Friday. His bail is set at $2 million.
Kimball has been away from the unit since August at a medical facility, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said. Kimball was at the facility when the allegation was reported Oct. 10.
A colleague at the special victims unit who took over some of his criminal investigations and contacted some of those involved learned of the accusation against Kimball, Nishida said.
“The internal criminal investigation bureau aggressively investigated the case and got a removal order for him from the facility on Friday and that is when he was arrested,” Nishida said.
Citing confidentiality laws, Nishida said she could not provide details of the type of medical facility.
Efforts to reach a representative for Kimball were unsuccessful.
Ron Hernandez, president of the Assn. for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, said his group had not been contacted by Kimball for representation.
“Any time I hear allegations of law enforcement crossing the line of their authority and trust it’s appalling, but I try to reserve my judgment until I know more details,” Hernandez said.
In the 2009 allegation, a woman and her friends were stopped by Kimball and another deputy in the parking lot of a hotel where the group was staying in August 2008, according to the memo by Deputy Dist. Atty. Deborah Escobar.
While the group of friends was being questioned by Kimball, some of the women in the group asked to use the bathroom in their hotel room, and Kimball allowed it. The deputy followed them to their room, near where the woman who later complained started filling up a Jacuzzi, according to the memo.
The woman said Kimball told her and her female friends to get into the hot tub, and some of them complied, wearing their underwear, as Kimball flirted with them, the memo said.
When Kimball used the bathroom in the group’s hotel room, the complainant went to check on him, and found the deputy exposing himself, according to the memo by Escobar. The woman said Kimball took her hand and placed it on his genitals and grabbed her buttocks, but she pulled away.
Prosecutors declined to file a charge of sexual battery against Kimball, finding no corroborating evidence of the woman’s complaint.
The witnesses in the hotel gave contradictory statements and the complainant failed to cooperate with investigators, Escobar wrote.
Scott said any previous allegations of sexual misconduct would normally exclude a person from the special victims unit.
“An investigation like this requires [that] you interview all the prior victims he came into contact with during his time there,” said Scott, who has served as a consultant on federal and county child abuse commissions. “You have to be very careful with the vetting for this unit because they come into contact with vulnerable victims.”

Measure W Failing. Great news for the taxpayers of San Mateo County.

samtrans-1-1533683163-3178

Update 11/9/2018 Without knowing how many ballots were mailed it is impossible to have confidence in this election. As of 9:00AM there are at least 146, 378 ballots to be tallied.

The elections office has just posted it’s official update at 4:30PM today. Mark Church is still refusing to say how many ballots were mailed out. He is only saying that he has received 215,480 and counted/tallied only 111,637 that leaves 103,843 ballots remaining to be tallied.

Total Yes Votes 69,132 = 65.65%

Total No Votes 36,173 = 34.35%

The Yes on Measure W Campaign with total reported funding of $1,500,000 of that $650,000 of Taxpayer money used against the Taxpayers.

The No on Measure W Campaign with a reported total funding of $5,700

Thank You to Jack Hickey for warning the public.

More than $1,500,000 of taxpayer money was spent on a campaign run by TBWB Strategies. See: http://www.tbwb.com/approach. The campaign phase of their strategy was step 4 in their strategy. This is “electioneering” and should be a felony misappropriation of public money.

Vote NO on “W”

 

The Elections Office should be Audited.

Mark Church should be proud his accomplishment, This should come as no surprise to any readers of San Mateo County News.com. I have said San Mateo County is the Most Corrupt County in the United States of America.

Mark Church refuses to tell the residents how many ballots were mailed out? How many ballots were received? How many ballots were tallied. How many duplicate ballots were mailed out and why/how did that happen? Santa Clara County updated the tallied ballots yesterday at 3:59 PM and this morning at 9:20AM. Not the case with San Mateo County No update yesterday at all, and today update is scheduled for 5PM.

You can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure. Mr. Church is doing this on purpose.

Juan P. Lopez

Last election San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s name was deleted. He was told his vote was cancelled after he received his sample ballot. Here are his comments:

Hello Michael,
This story brings to mind the last election. Mark Church and his cabal did cancel my ability to vote. This surprised me when I had not received my ballot in the mail. I did receive my sample ballot, but to my surprise my election ballot never arrived. After waiting a couple of days to see if it was delayed, I contacted the elections office. I was told that my name had been cancelled. Imagine that. One less vote for Carlos Bolanos not dealt with. Who cancelled my ability to vote? Was it the same corrupt county cabal that controls everything in this county? From working there for so many years, I saw many things and was told to just put in my time and retire when I could. This county management needs to be completely replaced from the Board of Supervisors all the way down. Those that are not corrupt, are just as guilty for knowing it occurs and continue to turn a blind eye to it. Innocent people get fired, disciplined and even prosecuted in order to tarnish their names to send a message for all the employee’s that are still there. Bring your lunch boys, I am not going away.

County voter receives two election ballots

Apparent irregularity sparks concern, but top election official claims all is well

  • Updated
William Holsinger

Will Holslinger Former San Mateo County Harbor District Commissioner, and attorney received 2 ballots this election.

William Holsinger

William Holsinger received his official ballot in the mail and sent it back to cast his vote, per his usual process as a permanent absentee voter for about the last 10 years.

Then another official ballot arrived in the mail the next day. Caught off guard by the irregularity, Holsinger, who is registered in San Mateo, called county election officials who told him that he could discard the duplicate.

Seeking some peace of mind, Holsinger said his primary interest was receiving a guarantee that being issued a second ballot would not invalidate his initial one.

“I wasn’t planning on voting twice,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure that my first one counted.”

Officials in a phone conversation were initially unable to offer that certainty though, said Holsinger. For his part, Jim Irizarry, the county’s assistant chief elections officer, suggested the second ballot is likely due to the complex nature of operating a countywide election.

“Voters receiving two ballots is a common occurrence due to the complex and fluid nature of voter registration,” he said in an email, suggesting a second ballot can be issued when a voter changes their status with the county. Altering party affiliations, addresses or other details in the county’s record are examples of the type of action which would prompt issuance of a second ballot.

Holsinger though said he had not changed his status with the county recently, making his second ballot all the more perplexing.

“I was a little puzzled,” he said.

To get clarification on whether the ballot was counted, Irizarry said the county offers a service which requires voters to share information such as their name, address and birthday.

“With this information, we can determine the number of ballots issued, when they were issued, what types of ballots were issued, if any ballots were voted or returned,” he said.

He added changes to the county record may not be immediately apparent to voters, as activity at the DMV for example may result in prompting a second ballot.

“Voters may not associate a second ballot with a DMV interaction made weeks ago, plus the time for the ballot to reach them,” Irizarry said.

He took time to note though that issuance of a second ballot would not invalidate the first. He said the voting system is designed to flag ballots in the case of potential redundancies, which then requires staffers to check the voter’s record, rather than automatically render it uncountable.

But so long as Holsinger only sent his first ballot, Irizarry confirmed his vote counted.

“If the voter … sent in his first ballot, and only that ballot, it would be counted despite the issuance of a second ballot,” he said.

Irizarry also tamped down concerns raised by those who were alarmed to see mock election results posted on the county elections office website in late October. Some felt the outcomes shown were real and may affect the behavior of those yet to vote.

Irizarry though said the mock results were not actual outcomes, and instead only a standard system testing mechanism commonly used by officials in advance of an election.

“These results are labeled ‘test’ or ‘mock’ to distinguish them from the actual reports released on Election night. Every system tested worked correctly. Once the mock election testing is complete, the numbers on racetracker revert to zero in preparation for Election night reporting,” he said.

The issues raised follow a series of missteps county officials have endured during election season.

First, officials found the county Board of Education race was left off sample ballots, causing elections officials to postpone sending actual ballots one week from Oct. 9 to Oct. 15 while they addressed the error.

Elections officials incorrectly identified the race as a district election, resulting in only those living in District 1 along the coast receiving information about the candidates in their sample ballot. The Board of Education candidates are required to be residents of the district they represent, but members are elected by voters across the county.

Irizarry said the additional information originally intended for the sample material was included with the actual ballot in an addendum which required additional time to craft. Elections officials sent out ballots last month, and voters still received their material within the legal time requirements.

Later, officials found the sample material problems carried over to real ballots, and dozens of overseas voters were sent ballots also omitting the Board of Education race. Officials were forced to scramble and assure those voters were offered ballots including the race.

For Holsinger, he shared fears that his experience could be a byproduct of a potentially dysfunctional system.

“I believe that good process makes for appropriate results. Bad process never has good results. And the ends don’t justify the means,” he said.

This is a perfect example of why I support elected official Sabrina Brennan she cares. If you know of any other San Mateo County elected official who has publicly commented on this subject let me know.

 

San Mateo County election irregularities:

1.) Why were multiple ballots mailed to individual voters…?2.) On Tuesday, Oct 30, 2018, Race Tracker was published on the San Mateo County Elections website with “mock” results. Voters discovered the Race Tracker results online when they Google searched a candidates name. The word ”mock“ was in fine print giving voters the impression the results were from votes cast in the Nov 2018 election. The “mock” results did not appear to berandomized.
3.) The *countywide* Board of Education election was excluded from the Sample Ballot pamphlet everywhere except the Coastside. Delaying the arrival of ballots by a week or more.
4.) The sample ballot problem carried over to real ballots, and dozens of overseas voters were sent ballots also omitting the Board of Education race.

Third-party audit needed of Elections Office

November 8, 2018

Editor,

I just completed my official San Mateo County vote-by-mail ballot. In addition to a mistake involving a position on the County Board of Education (the correction of which I’ve been told necessitated delaying distribution of the ballots), the provided instructions are incorrect. Specifically, step 3 calls for the voter to “remove the strip to seal the envelope” … when in reality the envelope, or mine at least, is a traditional lick-to-seal one.

Granted, that’s not a big deal. But two mistakes involving a single ballot package? I can’t recall the last time there was any mistake on a ballot, and I’ve voted in every election for the more than 20 years I’ve lived here.

It may be unfair to give voice to this next concern. But it needs to be asked. What else went wrong? It’s the mistakes you don’t see which can cause the biggest problems.

The people of San Mateo County should insist on a thorough, top-to-bottom independent third-party audit of the Elections Office. Our hard-working county employees deserve not to work under a cloud, and county residents deserve a first-class election operation.

Tony Serra to SMC Hon. Judge Mark Forcum. “Targeting” Deputy Juan P. Lopez

serraTony

“Targeting Juan P. Lopez” “Bad Faith” “Misuse of a Search Warrant.” “Using it as an Investigative Tool.” “You can’t use a Search Warrant for that.” “Therein lies the Bad Faith.”

October 17, 2018 Honorable Judge Mark Forcum thanked Tony Serra for his comments and ruled against him. He ruled that now SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando did have probable cause to obtain the Search Warrant. He ignored the obvious (Perjury) lying to Hon. Judge George Miriam by then SMCSO Detective Andrew Armando.

Lt. Andrew Armando has not been investigated or charged by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Why?

They have know known of these allegations for almost 4 years. May 1, 2018 Tony Serra and Maria Belyi filed this motion, which clearly alleges perjury.

“The most suspicious call”  Lt. Andrew Armando made this call himself. That didn’t bother the Honorable Judge Mark Forcum one bit.

Lopez Filing May 1, 2018

November 15, 2018 is the next Court Date for a Franks Hearing where finally SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando will be on the witness stand under oath.

I have been reporting about the “Targeting” to cause financial harm to Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and anyone close to him for almost 4 years now. It was refreshing to hear his attorney mention that in court yesterday. One example is the motion above which Judge Mark Forcum has personally continued at least 4 times. That means Juan’s attorneys had to drive down from San Francisco 4 times wait for the case to be called to have Forcum say it’s continued. Attorney Stuart Hanlon Juan’s first law firm told a reporter his career could be impacted for discussing Juan’s case in the interview. Nobody asked, What the Hell did Stuart Hanlon mean? Think about it. He was just telling the truth. Attorneys can and do get blacklisted in San Mateo County Courts.

Why is this one motion so important to San Mateo County Officials? It proves that San Mateo County Sheriff Detectives and San Mateo County District Attorney Inspectors commit crimes to obtain Search Warrants like the 80 that were issued in the Sunny Day Murder cases alone. This one motion also shows that the Judges don’t care.

A recent DA Steve Wagstaffe quote: “I still believe that one of the key components of a good criminal justice system is faith that judges do the right thing,” 

With Audits the residents don’t need to rely on faith.

SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando is a Brady Officer

San Mateo County DDA Ben Blumenthal is prosecuting Jody Williams. Just when you thought “Operation Dollhouse”was yesterday’s News.

SMCDA prosecutor Benjamin Germain Blumenthal is handling one of the most important criminal cases in San Mateo County History. Honorable Judge Robert Foiles issued the arrest warrant August 13, 2018 for failure to appear in court to face charges by some unknown person. In order to fail to appear one would have to receive an invitation, not just send a letter to an address that’s no longer used with no signature of receipt required. Unless the intention was to get the warrant on the record in the first place which causes harm to Jody Williams.

Illegally appointed and recently elected but not sworn in yet Sheriff Carlos Bolanos is going to hate this criminal case. He has been refusing to answer any questions about his detainment and being transported to LVMPD that night of April 21, 2007 in Las Vegas. He has admitted the obvious (he was detained) but refuses to admit to being transported. Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf who was the President of the DSA that night says they were both transported to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department holding cell.

Jody Williams who was there that night confirms UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos was Transported from 3474 Eldon St. just as SMCSO Deputy Heinz Pushendorf has been saying.

Jody Williams was the first person to report that the 24 women and a minor did NOT arrive at the Salvation Army facility for 72 hour protection as was required.

Jody Williams was the person that caused the raid that night that caught SMC Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff in FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse.

The voters of SMC will remember this last election that Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville told all editors and reporters that “Carlos Bolanos is a Liar.”

Back to this huge criminal case, it is a single count Misdemeanor practicing law without a license.

09/13/2018 Arraignment
Judicial Officer Foiles, Robert D
Hearing Time 8:30 AM
Result Held

10/02/2018 Order to seal police report pursuant to PC 964 / local rule
Comment9.8 filed
10/02/2018 Police Report ordered sealed per PC 964

What they are calling the Police Report is really the San Mateo County District Attorney Investigative report. There was no other police agency involved. You will also see the Declaration in support of the Criminal Complaint filed ….has been SEALED. Why?

Remember this is a Misdemeanor.

It is common for a DDA to lie to a judge in San Mateo County, just look at the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case it’s consistent from the very beginning. Next court date October 17, 20018 SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando hopefully on the witness stand.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has a new Standard of Practice. I recently assisted a single mother of two file a criminal complaint against her ex a SMCSO Deputy for filing a false Instrument with the Family Law Court a PC115A violation. Rick Decker asked the mother to take a polygraph test, she jumped at the offer and passed. This was pretty funny she is not the person who committed a crime.

I hope the District Attorney’s has had the Unknown Person take a Polygraph test.

To recap: A notice to appear not served, an arrest warrant issued, no idea who the complaint party is, and no idea of what the criminal complaint is it’s SEALED.

Update: Hon. Judge Gerald J. Buchwald signed a Search Warrant prepared by Inspector Jamie Draper the date was July 12, 2018, and it was subject to an order delaying notification for up to 90 days. That is why the case records don’t have that secret information.

DDA Ben Blumenthal refuses to answer questions about his case.
