Susan J. Bassi’s letter to Jeff Rosen SCC’s District Attorney.

Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen

10/31/2018

Yesterday I heard Santa Clara County District Attorney begging the Santa Clara County Supervisors for a raise, in the interest of fairness.

For all the mothers who never saw a raise in their support orders after raising children here for 20 years or more, and for all the fathers who could not afford to pay their child support because they lost their jobs or were fired because of family court……

I wondered what Jeff Rosen thought about fairness when it came to all the people his office prosecuted using harmful error as reported in the Northern California Innocence Project.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about fairness before he maliciously prosecuted two men who had to paid millions of dollars to private criminal lawyers to get a Factual Finding of Innocence.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought it was fair to pressure young Saratoga high school students to take a plea deal in connection with Audrie Pott’s suicide, while he covered up the horrific domestic violence she had endured as her mother and stepfather battled it out in our family courts.
I wondered about all the victims Mr. Rosen failed to serve as he failed to prosecute lawyers, and celebrities like former 49er Ray McDonald, who beat his pregnant girlfriend and still hasn’t been sent to trial for a single misdemeanor.

I wondered if he thought about Deanne Cifuentes-Powers who hasn’t seen her daughter in months because she tried to tell Judge Takaichi and Judge Lie her daughter was afraid of her father who had been convicted of felony domestic violence ( in another state because Jeff Rosen doesn’t prosecute high tech executives).

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about Erin O’Doherty who was destroyed in family court becaue she threw a phone at her ex. She hasn’t seen her daughter in 4 years.

I wondered if he thought about Pam Nudelman, who was married to a former prosecuter, and was left with less than 20% of her community property and support that was less than a $1000.

I wondered if he thought of all the families financially destroyed because Jeff Rosen doesn’t enforce support orders in high assets cases, only cases of the working poor.

I wondered if he thought about how he illegally paid overtime to the DDAs in his office who supported his first campaign, but wasn’t prosecuted for what was certainly a crime.

I wondered if he thought of the former prosecutor who brought him 15 criminal counts against divorce lawyer Bradford Baugh , which Rosen decided not to investigate, or prosecute.

I wondered if he thought about all the women who have reported the horrors of Judge Towery, Judge Lucas, Judge Takaichi and other family court judges rigging divorce cases, and watching Jeff Rosen let them off the hook because of his personal relationship with Judge Towery’s wife. And because Judge Towery got all of his prosecutors out of discipline with the State Bar.

I wondered if Rosen thought about the elderly victims of Terry Houghton and his lawyer wife, Valerie Houghton, who have been under indictment since 2016, and Rosen can’t seem to get to trial, despite Terry Houghton getting taxpayers to pay for his defense through the IDO.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought of all the vicitms of domestic violence who tried to get someone to help them. Someone to pick up the phone in the offie Jeff Rosen supervises.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought of the child who was sexually molested by a repeat child abuser, as his DDA hit on the mom of that child.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about all the dads who were ruined by false child abuse claims.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about all the moms he didn’t believe about child abuse and domestic violence claims.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about how he failed to supervise the employee in Victim Claims, who was abusing his wife and carrying on an affair with a subordinate.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about the man who was found guilty of child abuse in our family courts, but who is now working for Juvenile probation where he has access to abuse other people’s children.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about how the victims and their families would feel about him asking for a raise as they watched him run the DA’s office where prosecutors carry on sexual affairs and stalk the most vulnerable on Tinder and other dating websites.

I wondered if Jeff Rosen thought about the rape victims who still can’t get the results from their SART kits.

And I wondered if Jeff Rosen ever thought about all the support orders for the moms who never saw a cost of living raise after spending years raising children who would form the landscape of Silicon Valley.

It was a long meeting. I could wonder about a lot as Jeff Rosen wanted to whine about topping off his $400K a per plus pension annual perks.

I tried to interview Jeff Rosen after that meeting. Twice he faked that his leg hurt. I wondered if Jeff Rosen ever thought about how it hurt all the people who were punched, kicked threatened or killed by their spouses, intimate partners and parents who should have loved them, because Jeff Rosen is really bad at doing his job.
Mostly I am wondering if Jeff Rosen can read the law, much less follow it.

Maybe Rosen should leave publishing to the professionals.

Did San Mateo County Adult Protective Services, Protect & Advocate Properly for Firoz Jaffer? Elder Abuse Victim.

 

October 15, 2017 3:56AM Firoz Jaffer called 911 to report an assault on him and his grandchildren by his son Zainali Jaffer. Hillsborough Police responded within minutes to the home at 1026 Lancaster Lane, Hillsborough, California. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Firoz Jaffer was Beaten when he tried to stop his son from sexually assaulted his 3 year old son in the back yard. Here is a description from a press release by the District Attorney’s Office about one of the Court Dates.

Peo. v. Zainali Jaffer (2-16-88), Hillsborough Police Department 664- 288.7(B)/288(B)(1)/245(A)(4)/273A(A)-Two Counts/243(B) Misdemeanor October 15, 2017; Defendant Is 29 Year Old Hillsborough Resident And Former CEO Of Mobile Advertising Company “Vungle”; At 3:56AM Sunday Morning Police Were Dispatched To Defendant’s Home In 1000 Block Of Lancaster Road In Hillsborough; They Were Met By Defendant’s Father Who Was Cut And Bleeding In Face From Being Beaten By Defendant; Father Directed Police To Backyard Where Officers Found The Naked Defendant On Top Of And Sexually Assaulting His Three Year Old Son Who Was Screaming; Officers Approached And Defendant Started Choking The Victim With His Legs; The Defendant Ignored Orders To Stop And Kept Choking The Child; Officers Had To Use Taser To Control The Defendant; The Defendant Continued To Resist The Officers And Spat At The Sergeant; The Officers Determined That Defendant Had Also Punched And Struck His One Year Old Daughter As Well As The Three Year Old Son And Beat His Father When The Father Tried To Intervene; 17-NF-012415-A (DDA Sharon K. Cho) 

-The case was set in SSF Felony Court, Dept. 9, Judge Stephanie G. Garratt, for the preliminary hearing. The defense written section 1050 motion to continue the hearing in order to conduct further investigation and preparation and based on a new attorney added to the defense was granted without prosecution objection. The case was continued to January 31, 2018 9:00 for the preliminary hearing with a 90 minute estimate. This will be the second setting of the preliminary hearing date since the initial felony arraignment on October 17, 2017. The defendant’s father failed to appear in court despite the fact he was served with a subpoena. The defense attorney represented the father returned to his home in England. At the request of the prosecution, the court issued a $25,000 bench warrant for the witness’s arrest. The defendant remains out of custody on $300,000 bail bond (posted on October 26, 2017). The defense attorney is Daniel Olmos (retained). 

My question is did APS offer and provide all the services needed for him to be safe and have an advocate to explain the legal process for example “It is Illegal for you to leave the Country after you have been served a subpoena.” You are the key witness besides the 3 police officers and the body camera videos etc.

Michael Callagy should Audit San Mateo County on this case, including CPS.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe fails to Mention Motion to Dismiss the Entire Zain Jaffer case.

The Zain Jaffer case was dismissed July 2, 2018. That is a fact.

Prosecutions are implicitly limited to district attorneys per California Penal Code § 739, which describes the “duty” of district attorneys to file charges after a judge finds grounds that an offense has been committed. A judge did find that in the Zain Jaffer case.

San Mateo County should Audit this case and determine if the legal process was followed. He was arrested for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son, why did that disappear so fast. Did CPS & APS follow protocol?

 

 

The decision to dismiss the entire Zain Jaffer case must have been made before this Media Update of Cases of Interest was sent out. What date was it decided to dismiss the case? What date was the motion to dismiss prepared? What date was the motion to dismiss filed with the court? The reason I ask these questions is that Zain Jaffer read a prepared statement in court written before hand by a public relations firm, so they all knew this was going to happen.

CPS workers criminal case moves forward, They each face 10 yrs in Prison. Gabriel Fernandez R.I.P.

San Mateo County CPS should be Audited ASAP for the Zain Jaffer children case. See if they acted independent of the District Attorney very suspect dismissal of the entire case as they are supposed to do. Hillsborough Police arrested him for Attempted Murder.

L.A. Social workers’ charges upheld in boy’s death

By Richard Winton and Corina Knoll
A Los Angeles County judge on Thursday denied a motion to dismiss child abuse and other charges against four social workers in the killing of 8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez, concluding that the Palmdale boy’s death had been “foreseeable.”
“I have spent a lot of time, needless to say, on the case,” Superior Court Judge George G. Lomeli said. “This isn’t something I did by the seat of my pants.”
The ruling came more than a year after another judge concluded that “red flags were everywhere” before Gabriel was killed by his mother and her boyfriend, and that the social workers mishandled evidence of escalating abuse and failed to file timely reports.
Gabriel died in May 2013 after months of torture and abuse, prosecutors say.
His death became a symbol of bureaucratic failure and propelled far-reaching reforms within L.A. County’s child welfare system. In 2016, the case took a highly unusual turn when prosecutors accused the four former Department of Children and Family Services employees of felony child abuse and falsifying public records.
Thursday, Lomeli said the social workers had not properly documented the abuse nor the mother’s repeated refusal to attend counseling. The judge said he had reviewed the voluminous case files and noted that the defendants had overruled a scoring system set up to detect danger to children.
The defendants demonstrated “an improper regard for human life” and “a lack of vigilance,” Lomeli said.
Defense attorneys argued that Gabriel had not been in the care and custody of the social workers and that there was no willful gross negligence. Lomeli, they said, was judging the child protection agency and not their clients. They plan to appeal the decision.
“We are confident in our client’s case when all the facts come out at trial,” said Lance M. Filer, an attorney for former social worker Stefanie Rodriguez.
Outside the courtroom, another defendant, Patricia Clement, sobbed.
Prosecutors alleged that caseworkers Clement and Rodriguez, along with supervisors Kevin Bom and Gregory Merritt, ignored evidence of repeated abuse and minimized Gabriel’s injuries. They each face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
The case marks the first time that L.A. County social workers have faced criminal charges in performing their duties, prosecutors said, and is one of only a handful of such cases filed nationwide in recent decades. The decision by Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey to prosecute the employees surprised many child protection experts, who worried the decision could make it more difficult to recruit social workers.
The boy’s mother, Pearl Sinthia Fernandez, pleaded guilty this year to first-degree murder in Gabriel’s death and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A jury convicted her boyfriend, Isauro Aguirre, of murder, and he was sentenced to death.
In sentencing the pair in June, Lomeli characterized the killing as “horrendous, inhumane and nothing short of evil.”

San Mateo County’s $6,000,000 Bail case. Jose Dolores Cruz.

Mr. Jose Dolores Cruz age 51 of San Mateo made a court appearance yesterday bail was set at $6,000,000.00 His next Court appearance is Sept. 11, 2018. He is charged with molesting his four daughters over a several years time period when they were ages 8-12.

His case number is 18-NF-10591-A

He is presently charged with:

One count of 288.5(a) PC

Five counts of 288(a) PC

And six special allegations (one for each count) of 667.61(j)(2) PC.

The amount of bail seems excessive, and I would like to remind the readers that you are innocent until proven guilty by a jury in this country and especially in San Mateo County.

Just because District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and Chief Deputy Karen Guidotti charge you with a crime doesn’t mean you are Guilty of a crime. The Zain Jaffer case is a perfect example his bail was set at $300,000 October 17, 2017. Here are the charges when he was arrested.

The DA’s Office quickly eliminated one felony charge of Attempted Murder.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

The entire Zain Jaffer case was DISMISSED on July 2, 2018.

also Mr. Wagstaffe held a Press Conference and told the world that Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez smuggled a cellphone and drugs to a Hells Angles Inmate in the jail when he knew he had ZERO Evidence to prove it. Those charges were thrown out of court because of Prosecutorial Misconduct.

I would also remind the reader of a similar case where a Belmont man was charged with 17 counts of molestation, he couldn’t afford bail or choose not to pay the $100,000 waiting in jail for 10 months and was found Not Guilty of ALL charges.

“During the 10 months Michael Kazarian spent in jail as a child molestation case against him crept forward, he never had a doubt that he would eventually be set free.

The former president of the Belmont Chamber of Commerce’s reason for believing that was simple.

He was innocent, he told the San Mateo County Times on Monday in his first interview since a San Mateo County jury decided March 12 that he was not guilty of 17 counts of child molestation stemming from allegations made by an ex-girlfriend’s daughter.”

John Ullom Questions Patrick Clancy attorney for Zainali Jaffer ex Vungle CEO.”Fingers in Anus” per e-mail.

San Mateo County resident John Ullom co-owner with his brother Dan of Citizen Access TV and a true Citizen Journalist has asked by e-mail this week.

What is the name of the drug/drugs that caused Mr. Zaffer to force his child’s face into his crotch while fingers were inserted into an anus?
 Whose fingers were inserted into who’s anus?
This might be the motive for Mr. Clancy getting the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts sealed this week.

Press Release July 23, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — 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.

Zain Jaffer ex Vungle CEO has Preliminary Hearing Transcripts SEALED.

Why? Seven months after the alleged hearing, the reason I say that is there is no record in the court files of the Preliminary Hearing on January 31, 2018. I had to ask Deputy Chief Karen Guidotti if it in fact took place. Here is her response e-mail.

John Ullom Co-owner of Citizen Access TV and a very good concerned citizen of San Mateo County inquired about the price of the Transcripts. He learned today from San Mateo County Counsel attorney Dan Valim that the Transcripts he was interested in have been Sealed this week by Mr. Jaffer’s attorney. Why?

The readers should know there were 5 victims, 2 children, a grandfather, Police Officer and another professional. So there is 2 Child Abuse, & 1 Elder Abuse.

History: October 15, 2018 Zain Jaffer was arrested at his home in Hillsborough California at 4 AM charged with 7 felonies including Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was quick to dismiss the Attempted Murder Charge.

July 2, 2018 The entire Criminal case was plucked out of the legal process by San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Deputy Chief Karen Guidotti, Sean Gallagher, and Deputy DA Sharon Cho, Could not have been done without Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt, a former prosecutor for Wagstaffe, approving the motion to dismiss. The entire process from arrest to entire case dismissed 8 months.

San Mateo County has Failed to protect the Children and the Elder.

The Zain Jaffer case should be audited.

Update: 8/6/2018 The signature is that of Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt The same judge that granted the motion to dismiss the entire case on July 2, 2018.

I was unable to determine which Judge signed this order, The Judges name and Dept should be printed below every signature. I asked the top 2 at the District Attorney’s Office to identify the Judge. Here are the e-mails

Mr. Stogner:  I do not know who signed the order.  As you stated, there is no name typed below the signature, and the signature does not clearly show the judge’s name.

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
