Aaron Russell First Law Enforcement Officer Charged with Murder.

The idea that he is the first Law Enforcement Officer Charged in California since the law changed January 2020 should be shocking. San Mateo County has the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by Deputies, Shot in back three times all fatal, shot while unarmed with hands up above her head. 3 of the 14 spent shell casings moved (Evidence Tampering) because the original location didn’t support the Sheriff’s Office Official Statement, which by the way was supported by the District Attorney’s Office. The Half Moon Bay City Council made a Historical Effort to make an official request to the Attorney Generals Office for a Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff Deputy, the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office Investigation of the Homicide. The City Staff members did everything possible to water down, dilute the request to make sure the A.G.’s office would never open the Investigation of the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.

Aaron Russell, 24 is Charged in the Death of Nicholas Bils, 36,

Former San Diego Sheriff Deputy Aaron Russell is the first law enforcement officer in California to be charged with murder since the state raised the standard January 2020 last year for when peace officers can use deadly force.

Prosecutors contend Russell committed second-degree murder.

San Diego Deputy Dist. Atty. Stephen Marquardt argued that the shooting was not legally justified and noted that no other officers at the scene pulled a weapon.

“The idea that this amount of force was necessary … it’s just not plausible,

This is a first good step in reforming Law Enforcement, Charge those who commit crimes, all of them.

Nobody is above the law, That is what we have all heard all of our lives, now prove it.

Déjà vu, Another Skyline Body Dump

By Michael G. Stogner

The December 1st, 2020, discovery of a dead body, 40-year-old East Palo Alto resident Eddy Cervantes, on the side of Skyline Boulevard, should come as no surprise to anyone. Nor should the fact that he is a suspected homicide victim who apparently had been dumped there and found by passersby.  

The dumping of dead bodies, on Skyline Boulevard, was both foreseeable and, I dare say, inevitable. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and County executives failed the community, by not ensuring the adequate patrolling of Skyline Boulevard.

As previously pointed out, in 2019, following the murder and dumping of yet two other bodies, on Skyline, that this geographic area, in unincorporated San Mateo County, had formerly been assigned patrol deputies to provide line-level law enforcement services for each of the sheriff’s office’s shifts. It was known as the “90 Beat.” The position, that of a deputy sheriff providing patrol services, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, was fully funded for by the County Board of Supervisors and staffed by the sheriff.

Under then Sheriff Don Horsely & Undersheriff Greg Munks, staffing for this position was changed, with the deputies being removed (reassigned) and the funding being used to, first, pay for deputies assigned to East Palo Alto and, later, other pet projects of the sheriff. This practice was continued, first, by Munks who took Horsely’s position as sheriff, in 2007, and then Carlos Bolanos who became sheriff (Illegally), in 2016.

Horsley, Munks, and now Bolanos, respectively, made decisions to leave county residents who live at and about Skyline Boulevard unprotected, without a dedicated patrol officer, because they were deemed to have less value, even though the County Board of Supervisors fully funded the position and, I dare say, had the expectation that this was being done. In short, residents of Skyline and the immediate surrounding area were not persons who mattered.

Conversely, while leaving the residents of Skyline unprotected, the Sheriff’s Office, at great expense and effort, placed surveillance cameras, in the form of license plate readers, in the cities of San Carlos and Portola Valley, to protect their respective citizens against crime……. but then they are persons / constituencies who matter to Sheriff Bolanos. Why don’t you afford the residents of Skyline the same level of protection, Carlos?

Could the described homicides, body dumps, on Skyline Boulevard, be, in part, the result of no dedicated deputy sheriffs patrolling that area, providing an incentive for those that would engage in crime there? Absolutely. Couldn’t the resulting crimes and body dumps have been foreseeable, even inevitable, since there was no dedicated credible sheriff’s deterrent? Again, absolutely.

Did Horsely, Munks, or Bolanos ever inform area residents of their decision to divert resources? No. Did these residents not have an expectation their neighborhood was being staffed and protected by sheriff’s patrols? I think so.

Without the advent of passersby discovering Eddy Cervantes’s body, how long would it have been before he had been found? Shouldn’t County residents expect more from current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and now Supervisor Horsely? Has either shown the vision, decision making, results, and stewardship residents should expect from such County executives? Certainly, this should be a question best put to the residents of Skyline, the 90 Beat?

And District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s comments to the press, following the discovery of Mr. Cervantes, saying:

D.A. Steve Wagstaffe

DA Steve Wagstaffe

It’s a serious mistake, for any culprit to try and think, I can cover my crime by putting the person out off of skyline. There are so many hikers, bicyclists, road, you know, Mountain bike people going around that it just isn’t an acceptable way to do it.”

are somewhat disingenuous, in that the possibility of a sheriff’s deputy coming across a body being dumped, on Skyline, is remote, seeing the Sheriff’s Office has no dedicated staff patrolling the area, and the person or persons responsible did, in fact, get away with it, so far.

You’re right Steve, there are hikers, bicyclists, mountain-bikers, and passersby, in the area, but there is one person who is not, a Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy.

Barbara Bonilla in Court Today.

By Michael G. Stogner

12/21/2020 9:00 AM Courtroom 4B Arraignment 20SF013661A 

San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Michael Wendler

The main Question is What Happened to the Laundering Investigation?

Here are the current charges:

007PC487(a)-FEL-Grand Theft By Embezzlement487(a)Felony10/21/2019

On February 10, 2020 Barbara Bonilla was escorted from her office of Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). The SAL is a division of the Sheriff’s Office. At that time Barbara Bonilla was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Barbra Bonilla is well connected and well known for her Fund Raising abilities. She was also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for his 2018 run for Sheriff. April 2017 She donated $1,000 to his campaign. She was on the Boards of National PAL, California PAL, Redwood City Rotary, San Mateo County Parks and Rec Commission.

In May of 2020 she resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Why? She was not charged with any crime and even if she was it doesn’t mean there is any evidence of a crime. The former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is a prefect example of that. “Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in SMC Jail.” ZERO evidence to support those charges, they were dismissed.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe referred the Criminal Investigation to the State of California Attorney General because he was a member of the board of SAL. He wanted to avoid the Appearance of a Conflict of Interest. That is always a Good Idea when Public Trust is an issue.

San Mateo County Sheriff’Office should have done the same. Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and all Sheriff Employees think they should Investigate Barbara Bonilla at all. If Steve Wagstaffe couldn’t Investigate it for an Appearance of a Conflict of Interest certainly the Sheriff’s Office had more of a Conflict of Interest.

The A.G.’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office worked together in the Criminal Investigation of Embezzlement & Laundering. The DOJ had expected to have Barbara Bonilla Arrested as early as April 2, 2020, but that arrest did not occur. Why?

Laundering Money, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is Prepaid Gift Cash Cards you buy at many Stores. Did this element exist in the SAL Investigation? YES it did.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release December 4, 2020 Bonilla Arrest

The last sentence in the SMCSO News Release dated December 4, 2010 says: “this investigation is still underway and being handled by an outside agency.” It doesn’t identify that outside agency WHY?

When I asked SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe who’s Criminal Investigation was this he informed me it was the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

December 12, 2020

Good morning Michael,

It was charged by the Attorney General’s Office, so it would be described as a DOJ case.  I believe that is how it would be listed in statewide statistics, since I believe they list the prosecuting agency. But the investigating agency would be the Sheriff’s Office.

Thanks

Steve

At this moment it is still unclear Who the Investigative Agency was and is.

Normally I would attend the Court proceeding, Today I will not, there is a Pandemic. Stay Safe

Welcome to San Mateo County

Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

When Mark Melville becomes SMC Sheriff in 2022.

I asked the only Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff in the 2022 Election a direct question about the Axon Log Records that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is refusing to make public in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide of May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.

Candidate Mark Melville’s answer:

I can assure you unequivalently, I will release said records…..There is absolutely no reason not to release the records….Transparency…!!!!

Second in Custody Death in November, Sheriff Bolanos is Silent

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

The first in custody death of Julio Boch- Curup, 21 R.I.P. happened on November 11, 2020.

The second in custody death happened November 24, 2020. Name not released yet.

That’s 2 In Custody Deaths of San Mateo County Sheriff in 2 weeks.

The obvious question is why are people in San Mateo County Jail during a Pandemic. Are they there because they couldn’t afford bail? Are they the most dangerous to the public?

Is two Inmate deaths in 2 weeks normal for this time of the year?

What do the 5 Supervisors think about this?

Which Law Enforcement Agency is investigating these two In-Custody Deaths?

With what the Residents now know about Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P., Errol Chang R.I.P., Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. and Sandra L. Harmon R.I.P. all Homicides by Law Enforcement of course Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos would request the Attorney General of the State of California to investigate these two deaths. Right?

Six Years ago, Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez phone call.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

November 14, 2014 Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and I were talking on the phone. Abruptly Juan said “Got to go.” I said bye and call was ended. A couple of hours later I received a call from Juan’s girlfriend asking if I knew were Juan was I said said no why? She told me that Juan’s son told her he had been arrested at gun point in his front yard. I told her that would have explained the “Got to go” phone call. I asked her which home was he arrested at, she told me and I called Santa Rita Jail and confirmed that they had him in Jail. They couldn’t tell me why he was just in a holding cell not booked.

That was the start of so far a 6 year Journey in the San Mateo County Justice System. You will recall a Press Conference was called and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe informed the World that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Smuggled a cellphone and drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member Inmate. Now if that were TRUE that would be a Bad Thing the good news is just 2.5 years later those completely fabricated charges were DISMISSED.

The Residents of San Mateo County and the Editors/Reporters of the 7 print media didn’t seem bothered that the District Attorney’s Office would have knowingly filed False Charges against a Sheriff Deputy.

San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector William Massey is at the heart of the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case. That is no secret.

William Massey in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide Investigation on May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay, California. He interviewed San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Goulart. “This interview was not recorded.” Why?

I have a suggestion for Law Enforcement in San Mateo County, RECORD ALL INTERVIEWS.

Back to Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case now 6 plus years and counting, through in a PANDEMIC, reduced Courtrooms, Public Access Restricted, and in the heart of Silicon Valley the Superior Courts of San Mateo County are NOT allowing ZOOM. Why?

I have a suggestion for San Mateo County Superior Courts. Have all Court appearances on ZOOM.

You might recall the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case October 15, 2017 He was arrested for Attempted Murder of a Child, and multiple Sexual Assault charges etc. That entire case from start to finish lasted less than 9 months. How is that possible?

I have a suggestion for San Mateo County Residents and all Elected Officials. Audits are normal, Audits are a Good Thing.

AUDIT the Zain Jaffer case and Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case, Compare the two cases, find out What Worked and What didn’t Work. This would help speed the log jam of court cases in SMC. The Jaffer Case should be taught at all the Universities and Law Schools.

Juan P. Lopez case is scheduled to be in court Monday November 16, 2020 for Jury Trial, several motions need to be heard first, trial is expected to last 4 to 6 weeks. This is going to be an exciting trial.

San Mateo County’s John Ullom. Thank You

By Michael G. Stogner

I’m sure most of the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents don’t know who John Ullom is or haven’t heard anything about him. If you have read anything about him by Mark Simon, Jon Mays Editor, or Jerry Lee Owner of the San Mateo Daily Journal. You might ask What did John Ullom do to them to cause such a dislike?

John Ullom is Good Human Being an American, He is the guy you want as your neighbor. San Mateo County Supervisors should give him the Citizen of the Decade Award if there is one. They won’t of course.

Sandra Lee Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California. She was shot at 14 times, her body was struck 8 times, 3 of the 8 shots were fatal, all 3 fatal shots were in her back. Ms. Harmon was shot at while her hands were above her head and her back was towards Deputy Dominguez. The unloaded shotgun was on the ground in plain view at that moment.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020. He stated several times that 11 shots were fired and 11 spent shell casings were recovered.

That’s Simply Impossible. 14 Spent Shell Casings were Recovered.

This is where my favorite saying applies: Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

Here is just one small example of what John Ullom has done as a CITIZEN.

Sandra Harmon Was Fatally Shot In Her Back While Her Hands Were Above Her Head And The good Old Boys Cover Up

Our District Attorney, Mr. Wagstaffe has offered a “guess” as to how Sandra Harmon received three fatal shots in her back.: —  https://youtu.be/Vmij2TSFfR4

Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” is that Sandra was shot during the third volley of shots. Deputy Dominguez testified he thought he shot her during the second volley. Wagstaff ignores the Deputy’s testimony and the video obtained from another Deputy’s body cam. 

In this short clip, you will see Sandra Harmon’s hands above her head and her back to the Deputy who is firing at her. You will see her gun hit the ground. The Deputy who shot her testified that was one of the reasons he thought he had shot Sandra Harmon during the second volley. You will also see at least one shot was fired after Sandra Harmon dropped her shotgun: — https://youtu.be/TT6zIH4PAYg

Here is the video that shows when Mr. Wagstaff “guesses” Sandra Harmon was fatally shot in the back by SMCSO Deputies. Warning, very disturbing: — https://youtu.be/lsk2oORWVH0

Question for SMC Coroner, Mr. Foucrault, do the entry wounds in Sandra Harmon’s back indicate anything about the trajectory of the bullets that hit her? Does the evidence show a near perpendicular trajectory as would be expected if Deputy Dominguez’s testimony is correct?  Or was the angle of entry shallow as would be the case if Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” was correct? Do the wounds have abrasion collars that indicate the angle of entry? — https://what-when-how.com/forensic-sciences/evaluation-of-gunshot-wounds/

The body cam video from the Deputy who shot at Sandra Harmon while her hands were in the air and her back to him, is missing. The logs from his body cam are being withheld. No effort to understand how Sandra came to be shot in her back has been undertaken. This is WRONG. Sandra Harmon’s life mattered. And so do the lives of her family who deserve to know the truth.

At everybody on the BCC list. Nobody in charge, other than the City Council of Half Moon Bay, gives a damn about how Sandra Harmon came to be fatally shot in her back while her hands were above her head.  The press is not going to investigate. The ACLU isn’t interested. BLM folks aren’t going to protest. The only hope of the truth being told…..is us.

John Ullom

Fatal shots in the back provoked the LA Coroner to ask for an independent analysis in the interests of transparency. 

https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/11/us/andres-guardado-los-angeles-inquest/index.html

We do things differently here in San Mateo County.

If you see John Ullom tell him Thank You.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment Planning Tool.

By Michael G. Stogner

I hope this tool helps you make an informed decision on what to attend and what not to attend. As a Private Victim’s Advocate I’ve always advised that You are responsible for your own Safety and Health. I have known since February 2020 that the response or lack of response to the COVID-19 Pandemic by the Government of the United States of America has been Deliberate. Google Crimson Contagion Exercise and you will see how I came to that conclusion.

For the last Six Years I have attended almost every Court appearance in San Mateo County Superior Court for x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. Last week I did not attend, next week Nov 16, 2020 his Jury Trial is scheduled to start. I am still assessing how safe it is to attend a Courtroom in SMC during this Pandemic. San Mateo County still to this day does NOT take temperatures of everybody before they enter the 400 County Center Building where the Courts are located. To say I’m concerned is an understatement. Also each of the limited courtrooms are limiting the access for the public to attend. Many Counties in California are using ZOOM and Youtube to provide the public access to their trials, San Mateo County is NOT one of them. Interesting you have the Scott Peterson case and Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez cases at the same time you have all the normal cases with only a few courts and very limited space and a Pandemic.

Remember You are responsible for your Safety and Health, I hope this is useful to you.

Best of Health

Sitrick and Company hired by Zain Jaffer. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

How many Criminal defendants hire a P.R. Firm to promote the story they wish the world to hear.

Over the last 20 years I have attended many, many criminal cases and trials in San Mateo County, I know of only one case where the defendant hired a professional Crisis Management Public Relations Company to promote a fictional story. That case is the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case.

Some of you know I have recommended San Mateo County Residents Audit the Zainali Jaffer Case and the former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case. One start to finish less than 9 months and the other 6 years in the judicial system and still counting. What are the differences?

Sitrick and Company is one difference.

A Private Meeting with the District Attorney’s TEAM after a Preliminary Hearing is another difference. How many times does that happen? That meeting is where the SMC residents should focus, was it recorded? What was really communicated that afternoon, Think about that. What could possibly have been communicated during that meeting that caused many San Mateo County Employees to forget their Oath?

This is Terry Fahn & Stuart Pfeifer of Sitrick and Company’s Work July 23, 2018 which is 21 days after the Entire case was dismissed.

July 23, 2018 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Patrick Clancy, attorney for Zain Jaffer, co-founder and former CEO of video ad company Vungle, today thanked Stephen M. Wagstaffe, District Attorney for the County of San Mateo, for going out of his way to clarify that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

Mr. Jaffer was arrested in October 2017 after an altercation with family members caused by a dangerous reaction to doctor-prescribed medication. In July, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office dismissed all charges against Mr. Jaffer, a move that could open the door to Mr. Jaffer’s return to Vungle.

In a new statement published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Mr. Wagstaffe said: “We do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

Mr. Clancy praised the District Attorney’s office for clarifying the facts and making it clear that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any sexual assault charge.

“Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual. He suffered an adverse reaction to medication and in the process injured some family members. It was accidental and could have happened to anyone,” Mr. Clancy said, “Thankfully, the District Attorney and his staff reviewed all the evidence and made the right decision.”

“The sexual assault charges were dismissed because they never happened. It was only the physical injuries to his family that were dismissed because of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness. Unconsciousness can range anywhere from sleep walking to an epileptic fit. The person has no control over his actions, no awareness of his actions, and no intent to do any of his actions. He is unconscious.”

The San Mateo Daily Journal said Mr. Wagstaffe praised his prosecutors for “examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.” The D.A. told the Palo Alto Daily Post that they “avoided the possibility that Mr. Jaffer would be wrongfully convicted.”

Mr. Clancy said: “This should put an end to the spread of misinformation and gossip that has prevented Mr. Jaffer from returning to his role at Vungle, the start-up he founded.”

Lets just take this one simple sentence by Terry and Stuart “Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual.

How does that statement stack up with this from Steve Wagstaffe on October 17, 2017.

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, we filed a felony complaint against defendant Zain Jaffer. We charged him with five felonies and one misdemeanor as follows: 

Count I 664-288.7(B) felony oral copulation on a minor under 10 years old Count II 288(B)(1) felony forcible lewd act on a child
Count III 245(A)(4) felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury Count IV 273(A)(A) felony child abuse 

Count V 273A(A) felony child abuse
Count VI 243(B) misdemeanor battery on a police officer 

On Tuesday afternoon, the defendant was arraigned in RWC Felony Court, Judge Cristina Mazzei. The defendant appeared with retained attorney Daniel Olmos of Palo Alto. The defense motion to continue was granted and no plea was entered. The case was continued to November 1, 2017 1:30 for entry of plea and to set a preliminary hearing date. Bail was set at $300,000. I do not know whether he is still in custody or has been released on bail (you can check with the Sheriff’s Office PIO for that detail). 

The child victim was the defendant’s three year old son. The officer who was the victim of the battery was not seriously hurt. My assistant will email to you a copy of the charging document setting for the charges. 

Thanks Steve

Hi Emily, 

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor: 

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.” 

It’s fair to say that Sitrick and Company did not include TRASH TALK- PUSSY while naked straddling a 3 year old child at 4AM in the backyard or INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER.

Sitrick And Company does not mention the many articles I wrote about this case at San Mateo County News.com and that is understandable they were hired to promote a different story and that they did. The Question I have for Sitrick and Company is Did you ever contact CPS? Were you EVER concerned for the Safety and well-being of a 1 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. I did and I was and still am concerned.

Back to the AUDIT. The day the Jaffer case was dismissed District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent this email to his favorite Media. Notice he DOES NOT MENTION HIS MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE. WHY?

-The case is set at 1:30 in Dept. 9, Criminal Presiding Judge Stephanie G. Garratt, for the pretrial conference. The case is set on August 27, 2018 8:30 for jury trial. This is the third setting of the jury trial date since the superior court arraignment on February 15, 2018. The defendant is out of custody on $300,000 bail bond (posted on October 26, 2017). The defense attorney is Daniel Olmos (retained) and Patrick Clancey (retained).

That same day Zain Jaffer read a prepared Statement, Who wrote that prepared Statement? How many defendants go to a court hearing for a Pretrial Hearing with a written prepared Statement Thanking the District Attorney for Dismissing all of Your Charges. I know of NONE.

“I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”  

— Zain Jaffer

Message to Zain Jaffer Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez is a perfect case for you to pay attention to. You will remember he was arrested 6 years ago. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conferences told the World Deputy Sheriff Lopez Smuggled a Cellphone and Drugs to a Gang Member Inmate. It turns out those Charges were completely Fabricated Who Cares?

Next Court Date for Lopez is November 16, 2020.
