Hon. Judge Joseph Scott, Medical Emergency.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

Update Next Court Date: April 26, 2021 Time: 9:00 AM, We will see if Judge Scott will be the judge at that time.

Last Thursday April 1, 2021 retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s case was moved from Courtroom 2H to 2 G just 10 minutes before it was to be heard. Judge Leland Davis III informed everyone that Hon. Judge Joseph Scott would not be there based on a Medical Emergency. That in itself is a pretty big deal one that would be on the front page of every Newspaper in San Mateo County even if it didn’t have anything to do with Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez 6.5 year criminal case.

Today at 2:00 PM 1-425-650-1381 Code 425463

I hope the Medical Emergency has passed and everyone is ok, I have no idea who had the M.E. and Judge Davis III did not go into any detail.

What was to be heard last Thursday was a Motion to Quash a Subpoena involving San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Judge Scott had spent several hours getting up to speed on this issue.

For those who have been following the Deputy Juan P. Lopez story you will remember it began back in 2013 with SMCSO Lt. Armando, Sgt. Jason Peardon, and SMCDA Inspector Supervisor William Massey.

He was charged with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to Hells Angels Gang Member in Maguire Jail. Embezzlement of Campaign Funds ($400K). What ever happened to those very public charges?

Defense attorneys for Juan Lopez are Tony Serra and Maria Belyi of San Francisco.

Wagstaffe, Serrato and Warren don’t want to testify in x Deputy Juan P. Lopez case.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: Thursday April 1, 2021 at 9:30 AM to listen 1-206-279-9591 code 631595.

Last Thursday DDA Kimberly Perotti told the Honorable Judge Joseph Scott hearing the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 6.5 year criminal case.

“The allegation that the San Mateo County Sheriff Gang Task Force was involved in the break-in and theft of his personal vehicle was absurd.” Items from his BACKPACK were stolen.

Absurd | Definition of Absurd at Dictionary.com

adjective. utterly or obviously senseless, illogical, or untrue; contrary to all reason or common sense; laughably foolish or false: an absurd explanation.

She knows San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon was in charge of that unit at the time of the break-in.

What do you call it when a Prosecutor lies to the Judge?

In San Mateo County I call that normal.

Here are three people who don’t want to testify in this case, Why? You would think they would be happy to testify.

Reply Brief in Support of Third-Party San Mateo County District Attorney’s Motion to Quash Subpoena Served on District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, Former Chief Deputy District Attorney Albert Serrato, and Chief District Attorney Inspector John Warren.

SMC Hon. Judge Joseph Scott ruling on Miranda to be appealed.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

Yesterday in the x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case Hon. Judge Joseph Scott ruled that San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd did not violate Deputy Lopez’s Miranda Rights even though he clearly asked to speak with his attorney twice. As soon as he finished stating his ruling Defense attorney Maria Belyi and Tony Serra respectfully informed the court that they would be appealing his ruling as early as that afternoon.

The Juan P. Lopez case all started 6.5 years ago with San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Gilbert Armando and Jordon Boyd deciding on his own to start a criminal investigation, He claims nobody asked him. Wait till William Massey takes the witness stand. Massey is Boyd’s Boss.

This is SMC’s Collateral Consequences Case.

Showboater Supervisor David Canepa

By Michael G. Stogner

Recognizing a photo and public speaking opportunity is David Canepa’s speciality. Yesterday he again finds himself in another Supervisors district saying nice big words he has no influence over. Here is what he said yesterday “We will not tolerate hate in San Mateo County,” said Canepa. That should have always been true in SMC

He is in the company of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Has Supervisor David Canepa watched the video created by Carlos Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe and made public of Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae October 3, 2018. I have asked him he has not responded. Has he made sure the Sgt Zaidi was criminally charged for filing a false police report in that investigation?

Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment when Barbara Bonilla was first removed from her office as Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League. Barbara Bonilla worked for Carlos G. Bolanos back at Redwood City Police Department in the early 2000’s and she was his campaign manager in 2018. She was finally criminally charged by the Attorney General’s Office after investigating her for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.

Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment about the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by one and possibly two San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2021. The City requested the A.G. Criminally Investigate Sheriff Bolanos and District Attorney for there many false statements after the fact. No evidence of a shoot out, Tampering with Evidence the moving of 3 shell cases. The refusing to provide the Axon Log Records which would verify the statements by both that Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera before he shot an unarmed woman in the back while her hands were above her head. Also it looks like he fired first.

Has Supervisor David Canepa ever done anything to make sure Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would never use their authority to cause harm to a fellow Law Enforcement Officer like x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. One of the many false charges that they held a Press conference for was Smuggling a cell phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in Maguire jail. What did he say when those charges were simply dismissed 2.5 years later? Nothing

What did Supervisor David Canepa do when he learned about that, The Sheriff Office and the District Attorney’s Office used as a WEAPON to cause COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES to a Sheriff Deputy? Nothing

Has he listened in to any of the recent Juan P. Lopez Court Hearings remember 6.5 years and counting?

He can today 9:30 AM 1-206-279-9591 code 631595

Defense Attorneys Tony Serra and Maria Belyi

San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd is a Brady Officer.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd is the lead investigator in the x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez NF433910 case which is in court this morning after 6.5 years.

A Brady Officer is someone who is dishonest. The hope and goal is to have honest people in Law Enforcement everybody wants that.

In August 2014 Jordan Boyd asked Deputy Juan P. Lopez to provide him with his California Drivers License, as soon as Juan complied and gave Jordan the license he informed Juan that it was Suspended out of the Los Angeles area, he kept it and then he and others followed Juan to his car to make sure he did not drive home. Juan Lopez did not drive for the next 3 or 4 months. COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES

A reasonable person would ask How did Jordan Boyd know about Juan P. Lopez’s CDL without looking at a computer database? How many other CDL’s has Jordan Boyd removed from Law Enforcement Officers. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe informed me that his office does not handle any DMV issues.

SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd has admitted under oath that he started his own Investigation of Juan P. Lopez. Why?

A reasonable person would ask, In Jordan Boyd’s entire career how many criminal investigations has he just started on his own? He would have known that his Supervisor William Massey also a Brady Officer based simply on his own actions causing COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES when he twice tried to get Juan’s girlfriend fired. That’s really not what a high ranking Law Enforcement Officer is supposed to do. That is Dishonest.

The normal way is somebody would have filed a criminal complaint with a Law Enforcement Agency, that agency would decide if it should be referred to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, If the D.A.’s office thought it should be investigated they would assign it to Jordan Boyd or someone in his position.

That did not happen in the Juan P. Lopez case.

San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Perrotti filed a 24 page Motion in Limine last week. I was struck by item 4, EXCLUDE REFERENCE TO COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES EXPERIENCED BY DEFENDANT AS A RESULT OF THE INVESTIGATION, EXECUTION OF SEARCH WARRANTS, ARREST, AND SUBSEQUENT COURT PROCEEDINGS.

The people request exclusion of any collateral consequences defendant has experienced as a result of the investigation, excution of search warrants, arrest, and subsequent court proceedings in this case. This would include but is not limited to, any employment or employability consequences; embarrassment or shame, or any other effects resulting from members of the community learning of the investigation and prosecution. Evidence of or reference to these topics is irrelevant under Evidence code 350 and should be excluded.

When you read the word defendant replace it with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.

I’ve always wondered how a person who has sworn an Oath to enforce the law could do just the opposite. This is not the first DDA who has continued to produce a False case in San Mateo County. I’ve written about DDA Melissa McKowen several times in the past.

San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Perrotti also doesn’t want the Jury to hear the words Prosecutorial Misconduct, I don’t blame her for that this case is FULL of Prosecutorial Misconduct. You wouldn’t want the Jury to be aware of it if your goal continue to cause harm.

I have had the privilege of serving on a jury in San Mateo County, I was the jury foreperson in a trial where the District Attorney charged a young Marine with a DUI case. The DDA knew she had NO EVIDENCE to prove her case but that didn’t stop her and it made No impact on her when the young Marine was found Not Guilty. I offered to meet with the DDA if she wished to find out why she lost that case. She had No interest in learning where she missed.

From that day on I always wondered how many other cases in San Mateo County are defendants Falsely Charged?

Another False Statement by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable thinking resident of San Mateo County.

His identification was unknown until January 2021 when detectives received a break in the case from a witness who identified the suspect as 30-year-old Kaylan Freeman from the San Mateo County Coast.”

That is a False Statement, Just ask San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Gonzales, The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office knew who Kaylan Freeman was since March 2014.

Press Release

The real question is, What was the Sheriff’s Office really doing since 2012?

Sheriff’s Office eliminated SHOP and all dedicated, sexual-offense investigators with a 75% reduction in staffing in 2007 right after Operation Dollhouse the FBI Sting Operation.

What happens when San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies to the public? Nothing.

Update: I forgot to mention during the Campaign for Sheriff 2018 Candidate Mark Melville told every Editor who met with him that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Not one of the Print Media Newspapers printed that.

This case was investigated as an Embezzlement and Laundering case involving SAL FUNDS.

HMB Resident Rachel A. Quintana did the right thing. SMCSO Employees Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

In late 2015 Rachel Amanda Quintana did what most of us hope we would have the courage to do. She went to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sub Station in Half Moon Bay to file an official complaint about Sheriff Deputies abusive interactions involving her two brothers. She should get the Best Sister Award if there is such an award.

What she got instead was arrested at her home a couple of days later. The ARRESTING party was lead by Sergeant Michael E. Otte, and included Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney and Deputy Jose M. Velasquez. 66.66% of the arresting party lied and made false statements.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Kostielney filed A supplemental report after the arrest in which he stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.”

What he was declaring was that Sergeant Micheal E. Otte did NOT Video the Arrest with his personal Cellphone which in fact was a lie and he knew it.

It’s one thing to lie in an Official Police Report It’s a whole different ball game to lie under oath on the Witness Stand in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom which is exactly what Sergeant Michael E. Otte did on January 5, 2017. Who was aware of the Perjury committed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant in a Superior Court in San Mateo County. The list is long, I won’t bother listing all but at the top was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Her Bailiff who should be acknowledged for doing what we all expect of our law enforcement employees.

Hon. Judge Lisa Novak & Sgt. Michael Otte Perjury starts on Page 5

What happened to Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney?

We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.

Sgt. Michael E. Otte & Sheriff Bolanos

How many more Brave Citizens/Residents of Half Moon Bay came forward to report abusive behavior by the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. The City Council should have a data base available to the public to protect the public.

Rachel Amanda Quintana paid the price, years in the criminal justice system, with all charges to be dismissed quietly.

Welcome to San Mateo County
