On February 16, 2018, King County Superior Court held that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office violated Washington State’s Public Records Act when it refused to answer Wash Lite Board member Lori Shavlik’s public records request for over 13 months.

Similarly, in January 2018, Snohomish County Superior Judge Cindy Larsen held in part in the Gold Bar Reporter’s favor.  In Block v Gold Bar,  the City of Gold Bar violated the Gold Bar Reporter’s rights to access public records for withholding hundreds of public record for over five years. The City of Gold Bar’s penalties just on one case exceeds $1,000,000.00 for public records it withheld for over five years.

However, without reviewing 3000 plus records, Judge Larsen also ruled that over 3000 were not public records. Why, because those records involve Judge Cindy Larsen’s husband, a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer named Jeff Ross. In 2008, Jeff Ross assisted Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington with covering up the City of Gold Bar’s sabotaging the City’s water system. Although these criminal acts amounted to domestic terrorism, a federal crime, that Jeff Ross and Crystal Hill had a duty to report to the FBI, they decided to cover up it for money.

Our readers should be happy to know that because of Judge Cindy Larsen’s husband Jeff Ross assisted Gold Bar then Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000, 2005) in covering up Karl Marjerle’s sabotage of the City’s water system.  Instead of investigating or reporting Marjerle crimes to the FBI, the City of Gold Bar gave him money, and Aaron Reardon managed to get Mayor Grant Degginger to give Marjerle a new job with the City of Bellevue in exchange for his silence about Crystal Hill’s bank fraud convictions.

Because the Gold Bar Reporter was denied access to public records for over five years, a per day penalty applies,  as denial of the record when requested is a per se violation of RCW 42.56. (Unjustified failure to provide the record by the expiration of the estimate is a denial of access to the record, according to the Washington State Attorney General).

In addition to the fraud above, Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers gave Karl Marjerle  another $12,000.00 check to Marjerle after he extorted the City again in July 2012.  Beavers falsified accounting records claiming that the City owed Karl Marjerle because the Washington State Auditor said so.  However, the Gold Bar Reporter requested State Auditor records and none existed to support that the Auditor ever told Beavers that he had to give Marjerle another $12,000.00. Just another racketeering extortion scheme to hide Beavers and Hill’s racketeering crimes committed against the taxpayers of Gold Bar.

Former Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers admitted in his deposition that he committed felonies by removing public records from the City of Gold Bar. The cost to the City of Gold Bar as of today exceeds $1.5 Million and tolling.

Last month Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office released email communication between Prosecutor  Sara Di Vittorio and Joe Beavers documenting that Snohomish County was also a repository for email communication between Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill ( convicted of bank fraud in 2000, and 2005) and John Pennington ( terminated for criminally harassing the Gold Bar Reporter while inside Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management).

Crystal Hill Pennington was using aliases of “Chris Hill” and “Crystal Berg” to cover up her past criminal history.

As my readers can imagine, we here at the Gold Bar Reporter were ecstatic to learn that Ms. Shavlik finally held Snohomish County Prosecutors Office partially responsible for violating the civil rights of Washington State taxpayers.

Ms. Shavlik is also suing Snohomish County for malicious prosecution, and is headed for trial this summer in US Federal District Court, Seattle.  The Gold Bar Reporter will be in the courtroom and requested permission to video tape the entire trial. Stay tuned to the Gold Bar Reporter as it will be live streamed Shavlik v Snohomish County et al in to U Tube.


 

Injustice for one, is injustice for all

“When I see a wrong I cannot turn a blind eye. I cannot in good conscience sit idle when I see a person’s civil rights being violated. I was not raised to think of myself alone.”

Such is the case in Shavlik’s fight for justice amongst so many government criminals.

For Ms. Shavlik, it all started when Monroe Public Schools Superintendent, Ken Hoover,  failed to report nor investigate the sexual assault of her daughter inside Monroe Washington High School.  Not only did Ken Hoover refuse to report the rape of a student, but Ken Hoover went out of his way to violate the Title VII rights of the rape victim by expelling the victim from school, while allowing the predator to remain not only at school, but on the Monroe High School football team.  2008.

Ms. Shavlik sought help from an alleged victims advocacy group titled Dawson Place, and took on the City of Monroe.  As a result, Monroe High School was cited in Olympia for violating the Titel VI rights of the victim.

Instead of Superintendent Ken Hoover being fired for conduct unbecoming of any public officer, Monroe public officials felt the best way to deal with the very vocal Ms. Shavlik and the rape victim was to have Cities Insurance Company of Washington (CIAW) surveillance 24/7 on the rape victim herself and Ms. Shavlik.

 

In one public email received from Monroe Washington Public Schools, the school administrative assistant even managed to obtain medical files on the rape victim herself. Why, because the school knew it was being sued for violating Title VII rights of the rape victim.


“Leadership by deception and misrepresentation isn’t leadership. It’s fraud.”  

What we learned over the last month is that Ken Hoover was no outstanding citizen, but had in fact fathered an illegitimate child. A fact Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe knew, but instead of prosecuting Ken Hoover for dereliction of his official duties, violating the civil rights of a student, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, Francesca Youdavi, and Adam Cornell enlisted the assistance of a known Snohomish County Brady Cop, David Fontenot, to trump up criminal charges of Ms. Shavlik, and obtain a restraining order against the rape victim herself.

Brady Cops are defined by our US Supreme Court holding in Brady v Maryland:

The Supreme Court held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process “where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment.” The court determined that under Maryland law, the withheld evidence could not have exculpated the defendant but was material to his level of punishment. Thus, the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling was affirmed.

A defendant’s request for “Brady disclosure” refers to the holding of the Brady case, and the numerous state and federal cases that interpret its requirement that the prosecution disclose material exculpatory evidence to the defense. Exculpatory evidence is “material” if “there is a reasonable probability that his conviction or sentence would have been different had these materials been disclosed.”[2] Brady evidence includes statements of witnesses or physical evidence that conflicts with the prosecution’s witnesses[3] and evidence that could allow the defense to impeach the credibility of a prosecution witness.[4]

According to public records, the rape victim went to get court seeking a protection order against the perpetrator who following the rape was stalking and criminally harasser her at the Monroe High School. This after she was sexually assaulted.

Instead of Snohomish County Everett District Court giving the restraining to the rape victim, they granted it to the perpetrator. Why was something we just recently discovered thank to the accidental release of Court files.

What the Ms. Shavlik and the rape victim didn’t know was the perpetrator knew that Monroe School Superintendent Ken Hoover had fathered an illegitimate child,  and had an incentive to assist the perpetrator in covering up the rape.   We’re still researching the age of the mother of the child, so stay tuned, we’re just about ready to shine some much needed sunlight on this story, and we promise it’s going to be a really juicy, as juicy as a Florida orange, election year here in Snohomish County.

Just to show my readers how far Snohomish County Prosecutor’s office went in helping Monroe Schools cover up the rape of a child, we repost the original Dawson Place story.

Keep in mind, Dawson Place claims to be a place for rape victims, but refused to help in this case.  Why, because Dawson Place is not a victims advocacy group, its a place where Snohomish County can hide public records, and hide which cases to prosecute and which cases not to prosecute.

After Ms. Shavlik and Arthur West filed suit against Dawson Place, Mark Roe suddenly announced his early retirement. But not before Roe threw his support behind another cockroach named Adam Cornell.. .stay tuned, we have some very juicy pictures to share with our readers on Prosecutor Adam Cornell, lets just say, the Gold Bar Reporter has now dubbed Adam Cornel as “Lothario Adam Cockroach Cornell.’

 

 


 

Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s crimes against county taxpayers, forces his early retirement

 Mark Roe Pic

Snohomish County Prosecutor forced into early retirement after public records reveal that he and the County have been misappropriating public funds, operating a secret government funded company “Dawson Place” set up by Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Seth Dawson, and Janice Ellis ( Ellis is now serving as Snohomish County Superior Court Judge) with 15 Million dollars of taxpayers monies.

Purpose for creating Dawson Place is alleged to be to help children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse.  However, that’s not what it’s being used for.  Dawson Place is being used to hide law enforcement investigations, hide government accountability, illegal track citizens, illegally access health records on citizens who question government officials, and hide public records to evade accountability.

In 1972, Washington State’s Legislature enacted RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act) with this preamble:

The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. This chapter shall be liberally construed and its exemptions narrowly construed to promote this public policy and to assure that the public interest will be fully protected. In the event of conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other act, the provisions of this chapter shall govern.

 

In several cases, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was caught performing investigations ( law enforcement function) subjecting the County to gross 1983 violations and violating Our Court’s holding in Kalina v. Fletcher, 522 U.S. 118 (1997) ( Prosecutor’s who act as a detective/investigator lose any immunity they claim they have)

Bigger problem for those of us who care about the rights of the accused, hiding “exculpatory evidence” in violation of Our Court’s Holding in Brady v. Maryland – Wikipedia 

In a nutshell, the Supreme Court held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process “where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment”; and the court determined that under Maryland state law the withheld evidence could not have exculpated the defendant but was material to the level of punishment he would be given. Hence the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling was affirmed.

A defendant’s request for “Brady disclosure” refers to the holding of the Brady case, and the numerous state and federal cases that interpret its requirement that the prosecution disclose material exculpatory evidence to the defense. Exculpatory evidence is “material” if “there is a reasonable probability that his conviction or sentence would have been different had these materials been disclosed”.[2] Brady evidence includes statements of witnesses or physical evidence that conflicts with the prosecution’s witnesses,[3] and evidence that could allow the defense to impeach the credibility of a prosecution witness.

Dawson Place, scamming victims, and scamming the Washington State taxpayers

On February 16, 2018, King County held that Snohomish County violated Washington State’s Public Records Act, when it refused to answer Wash Lite Board member Lori Shavlik’s right to access public records.   Dawson Place

So what happens when the government is funneling public money to an alleged non-profit, like Dawson Place, and then claims it doesn’t have to comply with Washington State’s Open Government laws, RCW Chapter 42.56 RCW_ PUBLIC RECORDS ACT?

It’s called hiding public records to ensure criminal convictions, and cherry picking criminal prosecutions to hide crime stats.  In the case of Lori Shavlik, it equates to criminal racketeering as political favors to retaliate against persons who question government officers, like Mark Roe and Monroe School Superintendent Ken Hoover.


Rape in Monroe Washington High School, ignored by Dawson Place

When a Snohomish County resident’s daughter was violently raped and assaulted at the Monroe Washington High School in 2007, she did what any mother would do, she demanded justice and sought help for her daughter.  One such place the mother sought help from was Dawson Place ( Dawson Advocacy Services)

Dawson Place alleges to be a 501(3)(c) but yet it was created by Prosecutors Seth Dawson ( hence how it got its name), Adam Cornell, and Mark Roe, and receives 77 % of its money from the public funds, and the Board is controlled by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Sheriff Ty Trenary.

Instead of calling the police department and reporting the crime of rape, Monroe High School’s Superintendent Ken Hoover covered it up. Why, because reporting the crime of rape doesn’t sell houses.

The mother filed complaints against Monroe High School and received and a favorable Administrative Law Judge’s finding that Monroe High School violated her daughter’s Title VIII rights.

Meanwhile, the mother is asking Dawson Place for resources for her daughter, little did she know that the people who were taking her criminal complaints against those same public officials from the Monroe High School at Dawson Place were in fact Snohomish County Sheriff Officers and Prosecutors.  Conflict fudgamagic?

Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to a tape recorded interview with a member of Dawson Place who openly admitted when asked who the Dawson Place advocates were, her response was “Dawson Place doesn’t have any advocates. Advocates are the Sheriff and Prosecutors.”

So this begs one question: how can a company allege its a non-profit be receiving millions of taxpayer money and have government officers ( more likely than not on taxpayer time) run a non-profit?

Instead of helping this victim, Dawson Place along with Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Mark Roe and Adam Cornell conspired to harm her and trumped up arson charges on her using one known Brady Cop ( and a personal friend to Mark Roe’s who openly smokes pot with Mark Roe inside Snohomish County 7th Floor Public Offices. See http://snocoreporter.com/mark-roe-turn-rock-music-put-bong-follow-brady-v-maryland/ )

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know the mom as a loving mother, a victim of Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, and Adam Cornell’s malicious prosecution racketeering scheme fraudulently charging her with arson to shut her up for speaking out about the corruption, a friend, a freedom fighter and person who doesn’t take no for an answer.

These attributes make her target for Snohomish County Prosecutor Gang Stalking Network. A network operating from Snohomish County Prosecutor and Sheriff’s offices.  A network from public agency titled “Dawson Advocacy Services”  also doing business as “Dawson Place.”

But Prosecutor Mark Roe got caught, resulting in his early retirement for misappropriation of public assets


Lori Shavlik and Arthur West sued Dawson Place, claiming that its a “public agency”  – West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, Snohomish County Superior Court

On Thursday October 18, 2017, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe announced his resignation as Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office effective December 31, 2018. Mr. Roe’s resignation comes immediately following a lawsuit involving his misuse of public assets and resources to support a non-profit group, Dawson Place.

Two weeks ago, Mark Roe’s was placed under oath, forcing his under the oath admission  that he violated Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, operated an alleged non-profit , Dawson Place, while being paid by Snohomish County taxpayers.

Dawson Place, a public agency hiding exculpatory evidence to ensure convictions

When a Prosecutor assumes duties of an office s/he is sworn in to uphold the laws of Washington, and both the U.S. and Washington State’s Constitution.  From Mark Roe’s deposition in West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, one has to wonder if Mark Roe failed Constitutional law or simply a criminal in a suit believing himself to be above of the laws of Washington.  We believe it’s a little of both.


Washington State, Prosecutor’s Duties ( law Mark Roe are sworn in to uphold, but not only ignored, Mark Roe also went out of his way to violate laws he was sworn in to uphold)

RCW 36.27.020- Prosecutor’s Duties.

The prosecuting attorney shall:
(1) Be legal adviser of the legislative authority, giving it his or her written opinion when required by the legislative authority or the chairperson thereof touching any subject which the legislative authority may be called or required to act upon relating to the management of county affairs;
(2) Be legal adviser to all county and precinct officers and school directors in all matters relating to their official business, and when required draw up all instruments of an official nature for the use of said officers;
(3) Appear for and represent the state, county, and all school districts subject to the supervisory control and direction of the attorney general in all criminal and civil proceedings in which the state or the county or any school district in the county may be a party;
(4) Prosecute all criminal and civil actions in which the state or the county may be a party, defend all suits brought against the state or the county, and prosecute actions upon forfeited recognizances and bonds and actions for the recovery of debts, fines, penalties, and forfeitures accruing to the state or the county;
(5) Attend and appear before and give advice to the grand jury when cases are presented to it for consideration and draw all indictments when required by the grand jury;
(6) Institute and prosecute proceedings before magistrates for the arrest of persons charged with or reasonably suspected of felonies when the prosecuting attorney has information that any such offense has been committed and the prosecuting attorney shall for that purpose attend when required by them if the prosecuting attorney is not then in attendance upon the superior court;
(7) Carefully tax all cost bills in criminal cases and take care that no useless witness fees are taxed as part of the costs and that the officers authorized to execute process tax no other or greater fees than the fees allowed by law;
(8) Receive all cost bills in criminal cases before district judges at the trial of which the prosecuting attorney was not present, before they are lodged with the legislative authority for payment, whereupon the prosecuting attorney may retax the same and the prosecuting attorney must do so if the legislative authority deems any bill exorbitant or improperly taxed;
(9) Present all violations of the election laws which may come to the prosecuting attorney’s knowledge to the special consideration of the proper jury;
(10) Examine once in each year the official bonds of all county and precinct officers and report to the legislative authority any defect in the bonds of any such officer;
(11) Seek to reform and improve the administration of criminal justice and stimulate efforts to remedy inadequacies or injustice in substantive or procedural law;
(12) Participate in the statewide sexual assault kit tracking system established in RCW 43.43.545 for the purpose of tracking the status of all sexual assault kits connected to criminal investigations and prosecutions within the county. Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.

Not only did Mark Roe violate basic laws regarding his conduct while serving as a Prosecutor, he brags about his crimes against taxpayers.

Perhaps Mark Roe also missed “misappropriation” of public resources section of Washington’s Revised Code:

RCW 42.20.070 -Misappropriation and falsification of accounts by public officer.

Every public officer, and every other person receiving money on behalf or for or on account of the people of the state or of any department of the state government or of any bureau or fund created by law in which the people are directly or indirectly interested, or for or on account of any county, city, town, or any school, diking, drainage, or irrigation district, who:
(1) Appropriates to his or her own use or the use of any person not entitled thereto, without authority of law, any money so received by him or her as such officer or otherwise; or
(2) Knowingly keeps any false account, or makes any false entry or erasure in any account, of or relating to any money so received by him or her; or
(3) Fraudulently alters, falsifies, conceals, destroys, or obliterates any such account; or
(4) Willfully omits or refuses to pay over to the state, its officer or agent authorized by law to receive the same, or to such county, city, town, or such school, diking, drainage, or irrigation district or to the proper officer or authority empowered to demand and receive the same, any money received by him or her as such officer when it is a duty imposed upon him or her by law to pay over and account for the same, is guilty of a class B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in a state correctional facility for not more than fifteen years.
The above RCW clearly defines what a Snohomish County Prosecutor’s role is, and does not include acting as President or a Board member for Dawson Place.
Once West/ Shavlik confronted Mark Roe with his criminal activity, and being placed under investigation for his illegal activities, Mark Roe announced his retirement effective December 31, 2018.  Why, because Mark Roe knows several citizens are planning to Recall him for his misappropriation of public resources to run Dawson Place (Mark Roe’s self proclaimed little fort).

  1. This isn’t the only case where the Washington State Bar and Washington State Guardian Board are involved. James P. Spurgetis is on both boards and has a very questionable reputation in guardianship cases. Names on bank accounts have been deleted or changed to hide the accounts after a death of the owner, the nursing home involved is refusing to hand over copies of billings that show a large difference in the billing of different patients and the billings to the state for patients on Medicaid vs self pay. Looks like our next move is a court order to force compliance with RCW 11.48.02
