James “Jim” McGee Arrested for Domestic Violence, That’s all after a 17 hr. Standoff.

Update: Sept. 24, 2018 There is No Domestic Violence Charge and only one count of 148(a)(1) PC. There is still No Case number on the Court Calendar. The residents of San Mateo County should be demanding an Audit of the District Attorney’s Office and include the County Domestic Violence Protocol, was it followed, Who is responsible for enforcing it. What about the Victim?

Update: Todays 9/12/2018 Court date has been continued for 2 weeks. Next Court date or cording to the DA’s Office is 9/27/2018. Still NO charges filed by the District Attorney’s Office, not even the Domestic Violence charge he was arrested for.

August 9, 2018 at 2:00AM the Redwood City Police Department responded to a 911 call reporting Domestic Violence with injuries. When police arrived they found a woman in the front of the home located on Windsor Way. She was taken to the Hospital. The police, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Swat Team, a Helicopter and who knows how many first responders spent the next 17 plus hours communicating with one of their own to get him to comply with the orders to come outside. The entire neighborhood was effected by this military response to a former RWCPD Swat Team Officer refusing to comply with orders to come out. Some neighbors were forced to stay in place and some left their homes for safety.

If you think over 17 hours for one of their own seems like a long time you are correct, but that is nothing, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and Chief Deputy DA Karen Guidotti have refused to file any charges as of Sept 10, 2018. You talk about favorable treatment, think about having over 30 days to communicate with the victim to have her really think about her future and what’s best for her and the alleged abuser. Financial considerations of course. This is where the Fixer shines, behind the scenes he communicates the reality to the victim, she will never win in court in SMC. It won’t be the first time a victim has heard that statement before.

San Mateo County has a Domestic Violence Protocol it includes an Emergency Protective Order, a 30 day Court appearance to convert the EPO to a Restraining Order. I asked the DA’s Office the status of the EPO & RO here is the response.

Mr. Stogner:  No charges have been filed yet.  Yes, his court appearance is still set for the 12th.  I won’t be commenting on the facts of the case until a filing decision is made.  You may feel free to reach out to me daily to see if/when charges are filed.

Subject: RE: James A. McGee Charges Update

Hello Karen,

Is his court date still set for the 12th.

Was there an EPO issued? and was it converted to a R.O.?

What are the charges?

Thank You

Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County News.com

Note: Sept. 12. 2018 I went to the court house James McGee’s name was not on the docket at all. Usually all parties come to court on the official court date and than continue. That is not what happened in this case.

Chief Deputy Karen Guidotti should explain to the residents of San Mateo County this statement. “Yes, his court appearance is still set for the 12th.”   

The District Attorney’s Office and the Redwood City Police Department should be audited.

My reporting is facts based if anyone would like to comment please do.

San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Andrew Armando is a Brady Officer at the very least, Criminal at most.

Lt. Andrew Armando is currently in charge of the Internal Affairs of the Sheriff’s Office. That is a bad thing. He is dishonest and has committed criminal acts in the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case. In order for him to be convicted of a crime, San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Steve Wagstaffe, Karen Guidotti, John Warren would have to file charges and currently they are refusing to do so. Who else is aware of the criminal conduct allegations filed May 1, 2018 in the Lopez case. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, many Sheriff Deputies, San Mateo County Counsel, Judges include Hon. Judge George Miriam, Hon. Judge Mark Forcum.

The public is counting on, hoping that all people in position of Authority will do their job, which is to protect the public not a small group of “Those Who Matter.”

Why are the people mentioned above protecting a “Dirty Cop”? They have all known since May 1, 2018 of the allegations. What actions have they taken besides delaying?

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,” 

The same can be said for the Sheriff Office and the District Attorney’s Office do the right thing.

The Sunny Day Murder case had 80 Search Warrants alone.

How many cases or Search Warrants has Lt. Andrew Armando been involved in since 2013? A Brady Officer can not testify for good reason.

Juan Lopez’s first Attorney Stuart Hanlon to reporter Katie Utehs 2/23/2015:

“This interview is going to make it harder to practice there, but it’s the truth and I’m willing to deal with it because I think this man is being falsely charged.”

Mr. Hanlon is right as of today 8 Felony charges have been dismissed. San Mateo County Government leadership could care less that the DA’s Office and Sheriff’s Office is dishonest. Look no further then Good and Concerned Citizen Therese Dyer who has been reporting corruption in those offices for many years and the Supervisors refuse to conduct an Audit.

Elected Official Jack Hickey is the only SMC politician to question the DA’s Office.

Here is the Lopez Motion with the criminal allegations.

San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Andrew Armando to Testify.

Real life is much more exciting then reality t.v. Please join me.

Update: Continued to October 3, 2018

Hon. Judge Mark Forcum continued this motion for the third time which makes the 4th time it has been continued since filed May 1, 2018. He claimed his court had a murder trial going in it. The Lopez Motion will not take very much time at all 2 hours max and most likely 30 minutes should do. One star witness SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando he will either take the fifth or testify he committed a Felony. Those who Matter don’t want that to happen before another case set for September 10, 2018 goes to trial, reason being as soon as Lt. Armando has his day in court the other case gets DISMISSED. It’s not good when Search Warrants are obtained by a criminal act.

Monday August 27, 2018 9:00AM Courtroom 2H Hon. Judge Mark Forcum will preside in the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case which is approaching 4 yrs in SMC’s criminal justice system. You might recall District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe holding a press conference charging Deputy Lopez with smuggling a cellphone and drugs into the jail to a gang member inmate. Mr. Wagstaffe did not hold a press conference when a judge who finally heard the DA’s case threw out those charges, the DA and the Sheriff’s Office knew there was no evidence that connected Juan P. Lopez to those charges. That didn’t stop them or even slow them down. You would think that would cause a normal person to review/audit their own work to answer the question, How did we get it so wrong? Not the case.

Lt. Andrew Armando has been promoted twice since he obtained the Search Warrant to get his hands on Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s cellphone. He was Detective on the date he committed perjury to Hon. Judge George Miriam. After that he was promoted to Sergeant and a short time later promoted to Lt. now in charge of Internal Affairs.

Juan P. Lopez and his supporters knew from the very beginning that Armando’s sworn statement to the judge was a lie. 4 years later he will be on the witness stand.

The residents of San Mateo County should ask how many Search Warrants was SMCSO Detective Andrew Armando and District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd involved in since 2013. I know of one case 80 Search Warrants were issued. Think about that when an entire case is started with a lie, the amount of suffering caused and many guilty pleas to end the nightmare of the legal process in SMC.

May 1, 2018 Filing with perjury allegations.

San Mateo County’s District Attorney Office needs a Performance Audit.

 

 

Update since this article first published Defense Attorney Patrick Clancy filed a motion to seal the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts of January 31, 2018 Motion granted by supposedly a SMC Judge. I say that because the DA doesn’t know who signed it.

Good morning Karen and Steve

Please tell me the name of the judge who signed the Seal order. I am unable to recognize it from my copy.

We have compared it to the entire rooster, It would be nice if the name was printed below the signature.

 

Thank You

Performance Audit conducted in accordance with auditing standards promulgated by the Comptroller General of the United States.

This is not a new idea former Town of Atherton Finance Director John Johns R.I.P. made this recommendation in 2010. It was a good recommendation then and is now.

With the Zain Jaffer x Vungle CEO case 7 felonies including oral copulation of a child and assault of a Hillsborough Police Officer simply disappearing from the legal process after a private meeting between the District Attorney’s Office and Mr. Jaffer’s attorneys.  DA Steve Wagstaffe believed he was guilty of these charges from day one for almost 8 months, right up until the private meeting at the District Attorney”s Office which included a presentation of the entire defense. That is what a trial is for.

Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti became the Judge and Jury in the Zain Jaffer case.

How many cases in the last 10 years has a Defense Team made a private presentation at the DA’s office?

How many of those presentations resulted in the District Attorney filing a motion to dismiss the entire case?

Judges are the last layer of Oversight for the People of California. When they see a suspicious or questionable motion from the District Attorney’s Office they should not only deny it, they should report it to the State Bar. This motion by Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti was both suspicious & questionable. Now we just have to find out Why?

Why did Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt grant the motion to dismiss? There already was a Preliminary Hearing that determined there was enough evidence for every charge to move forward. She could have denied the motion, Wagstaffe could have tested his evidence on the Grand Jury to get an indictment if he thought his case was weak. Instead he choose to dismiss the entire case and Judge Garratt assisted him in that effort.

* Those Who Matter* email from Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, he was noticing the residents of San Mateo County that there is a special group of people above the law.

e-mail sent 4/25/07 10:20 AM

Greg and Carlos

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

Steve

For those readers who don’t know this e-mail was written to San Mateo County Sheriff and UnderSheriff days after they both were caught and detained as Customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including at least one child. April 21, 2007 FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada.

The Matthew Graves (also 30 yr. old man) case should be looked at, He was sentenced to 34 years in prison, 4 of those years are for violating a Restraining Order. This should be compared to Mr. David Bohannon being arrested twice by the Menlo Park Police Department. The second time was for violating a Restraining Order, The exact same thing Matthew Graves got 4 years in prison for. The difference is Matthew Graves got charged, tried, convicted and sentenced. Mr. Bohannon no criminal case number filed, no court appearances, no trial, extracted from the legal process.

SMDJ Article Matthews Graves

The Board of Supervisors of San Mateo County should order and pay for the Audit.

Results Certified for the June 5, 2018 Statewide Direct Primary Election

Mark Church has certified the June 5, 2018 Election results for San Mateo County.

The Sheriff Office race was an exciting one with three candidates. Mark Melville and Heinz Puschendorf both San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies and Carlos Bolanos the illegally appointed Sheriff who started his campaign over three years ago to make sure no deputy would run against him. That didn’t happen. Mark Melville told several editors including Jon Mays of the San Mateo Daily Journal in May that he watched a 3 minute video of Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula’s presentation to the Board of Supervisors on March 13, 2018. He described it as brilliant and clearly stated based on that presentation it proved that Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos were liars. Heinz Puschendorf was a last minute write in candidate told several reporters including Dave Boyce that in 2007 when he was the President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA he was ordered by UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos not to talk about or mention the FBI Human Trafficking Sting Operation Dollhouse where he was caught and detained as a customer on April 21, 2007.

Melville and Heinz were very brave to offer their services to the residents of San Mateo County. Look no further than the last write in candidate former deputy Juan P. Lopez.

Imagine what the outcome of this election would have been had Jon Mays printed the brave statement Mark Melville made in May. He and Jerry Lee didn’t think it was newsworthy, 83,500 readers didn’t know about a candidate deputy calling his boss a liar.

That is a big deal. Another big deal is that 100 voters spelled Heinz Puschendorf correctly.

To the 52,996 voters for Mark Melville, I recommend you send him your e-mail addresses so that he can keep you informed if anything bad should happen to him. Same for Mr. Puschendorf. Note Mark Melville has not conceded yet, with close to 30,000 votes in Carlos Bolanos favor 81,032.

In another race between Nancy Magee and Gary Waddell for Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Waddell conceded right away with less than 1% difference.

Magee 65,683 Waddell 64,485

For the record I believe SMC Sheriff Deputies Heinz Puschendorf and Mark Melville.

Mark Church How many Ballots?

Update June 22, 2018

San Mateo County had at this time 44.3% turnout with 172,076 ballots counted.

Election Results

June 16, 2018 San Mateo County Elections Office headed by Mark Church has never published on the County’s website how many ballots it had received. Today 11 days after the election the advertising business SMDJ has published that 45,000 ballots remain to be counted. Also News that it mailed out 400,000 ballots thats about 11,000 more than the official registered voter count. Not everybody received the ballot in the mail. Former SMC Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez didn’t receive his, he called to have another mailed to him and was told “NO” Go vote in person. So he did while serving on Jury Duty he went to the 555 Building after identifying himself he was told “Your Vote has been cancelled.

Also missing from the website are the Write-In candidates. This year was a Historical Election Three candidates for Sheriff, one who has been running (forever) 3 years, one for 1 year and one for a month.

The last one was the President of the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA in 2007. He has reported to several reporters that he was ordered by Carlos Bolanos not to talk about or mention Operation Dollhouse. He was the Go-To guy on April 21, 2007 He received several phone calls from Las Vegas starting at 10:15PM that night. He has helped bring out the truth about what really happened that night.

Now today we wait.

Welcome to San Mateo County

UnderSheriff Trisha Sanchez Retired.

San Mateo County UnderSheriff Trisha Sanchez has retired as of June 6, 2018. That was 30 years to the day she started with the Sheriff’s Office. She was the first woman to serve as assistant sheriff in the Sheriff’s Office 150-year history. That also just happened to be  just one day after the election for Sheriff which looks like her boss Carlos Bolanos might be the elected Sheriff. There are still 70,000 votes to be counted. Trisha Sanchez was in Las Vegas on April 21, 2007 when her 2 bosses were caught and detained as customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including at least one child. She was also the decoy in a Sheriff Office Prostitution Sting in Redwood City in 1993 which netted San Mateo County Manager John Maltbie as a customer.

Best of Health and Luck to Trisha Sanchez in your retirement.
