Update: next court date January 5, 2022
Today December 22, 2021 Courtroom 8B at 9:00AM Hon. Judge Chinhayi C. Cadet for Arraignment
SMCCCD Vice Chancellor Jose D. Nunez has been charged with 15 Felony counts, including Embezzlement and PERJURY. He has not been arrested yet. Why? also PER DA AND DEFENDANT’S ATTORNEY’S REQUEST. NTA MAY NOT REACH DEFENDANT IN TIME. NTA= Notice to appear, Mr. Nunez might not even know he has been invited to show up in court today. Very casual for a 2.5 year Criminal Investigation. How much did the 2.5 year Investigation cost SMC Taxpayer? Lets compare that to the final outcome of this case, which will most likely never get to a Jury Trial.
Just because a person is criminally charged with a crime in San Mateo County doesn’t mean that he or she is guilty. Look no further than Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case NF433910A or the Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering case.
The Public is invited to attend in person by Hon. Judge Leland Davis III. Up until November 22, 2021 the public which includes reporters were able to Listen to the Hearing by calling this number 503-300-6847 Code 438807. Remember there is a Pandemic in the world including San Mateo County.
Public Access Policy Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.
I have recommended a Single Point Data Base to San Mateo County Government (SUPERVISORS) for 20 years. Just think how much time and money it would have saved if it caught the alleged Felony on 3/4/2009. Also it would be helpful if the District Attorney’s Office charge all people equally, for example if a Judge, a court clerk, and a court reporter committed a Felony, it would go a long way for Public Trust if they were arrested, charged, and prosecuted. Here are the current charges in the Nunez case.
