This current election for Sheriff is a perfect example Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos (July 12, 2016) filed his political papers with San Mateo County Elections Office, Statement of Organization on November 18, 2015 about a week before Sheriff Greg Munks announced that he would not be running for re-election in three years and he endorses Carlos Bolanos. That looks like at least those two conspired to have Carlos Bolanos be the next Sheriff of San Mateo County. It accomplished two things, it made Mr. Bolanos the longest running candidate in San Mateo County’s history. It also put all Sheriff Deputies on notice, if you want to succeed in your career you had better support Bolanos. Former brave Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ran as a Write In candidate for Sheriff in 2014. He missed the filing deadline by 4-6 minutes and Mark Church would not allow his name to be on the ballot. He choose to be a Write In candidate for Sheriff a very costly decision. He was investigated by the Sheriff’s Office, The District Attorney’s Office, and even David Silberman of the County Counsel Office helped. Juan Lopez was arrested twice once with guns to his head in his front yard in front of his children. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conference for TV media and announced to the world that Juan Lopez smuggled a cell phone and drugs to an inmate, and not just any inmate he was a gang member. After more than 3 years in the Court System and $120,000 legal fees spent, the Judge threw out those charges. The reason was Prosecutorial Misconduct it turns out both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office knew there was ZERO evidence that connected Juan P. Lopez to the cell phone and drugs. That didn’t seem to matter to Carlos Bolanos or Steve Wagstaffe. Think about “Those Who Matter.”
Those Who Matter: People who control investigations, who to investigate, who not to investigate, edit reports, submit recommendations to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, filing charges with the Court when you know they are false. Lying to a Judge and submitting a false affidavit, That is a Criminal Act.
Here we are approaching 4 years in the legal system and this finally gets filed.
Detective Armando Perjuriously Alleged that Mr. Lopez Placed a Telephone Call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.
He made the phone calls himself.
To all good and concerned citizens Please join us in San Mateo County Superior Court June 28, 2018 9:00AM as the Judge rules on this filing. Juan P. Lopez finally found a law firm to file this important document.
Thank You to Tony Serra and Maria Belyi.
