Senator Steve Hobbs, up to his same old shit


When’s a criminal harasser, always a harasser? Just ask Steve Hobbs as his involvement in using convicted criminal Kevin Hulten.

Kevin Thomas Hulten was convicted of criminal evidence tampering in Block v Snohomish County et al to cover up criminal racketeering crimes committed by the below public officials against Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block, and some of the county officials racketeering crimes were exposed by the Everett Daily Herald in February 13, 2013.

In exchange for Kevin Thomas Hulten destroying evidence implicating several public officials in racketeering crimes, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe purposefully undercharged Kevin Hulten with criminal evidence tampering, and misappropriated public county taxpayer monies to fund his legal defense in Block v Snohomish County et al.

Public emails between Mark Roe and convicted criminal Kevin Thomas Hulten confirm that Mark Roe was using Hulten for illegal lobbying with Mc Bee Strategies in D.C.

A recent Snohomish County public records release implies that Everett Daily Herald Reporter Scott North received a Snohomish County job as a result for agreeing not to report on Senator Steve Hobbs’s involvement with the Sky Valley Chronicle, and Snohomish County’s criminal harassment detailed by the Gold Bar Reporter over the last ten years.

In one email string, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe wrote a favorable article  about Prosecutor Adam Cornell, and Scott North simply published it and falsely fixed his name to the story. Truth, the article was  written by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe not the Everett Daily Herald.

After the Gold Bar Reporter exposed several of Mark Roe’s crimes inside public emails, he abruptly resigned in disgrace. More to come on Mark Roe’s sexual deviant behavior . . . stay tuned, grab your popcorn, the Gold Bar Reporter promises to enlighten taxpayers on why Mark Roe covered up criminal conduct of county employees, some who are known pedophiles and sexual abusers.


 

Snohomish County released public records documenting that on February 13, 2013, Federal Way Senator Tracy Eide met with Senator Steve Hobbs, John Pennington, Sean Reay, Jon Rudicil, Aaron Reardon, and Kevin Thomas Hulten inside Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon’s Office, located inside the City of Everett.

Purpose of the Hobbs’s meeting was simple, get Anne Block, the Gold Bar Reporter,  disbarred for reporting the truth on several public official criminal racketeering crimes here in Washington State.

What our readers may not have known about Senator Steve Hobbs is one of persons who created a “foe website” titled the Sky Valley Chronicle. Executive Officers from Aaron Reardon’s gang used the Sky Valley Chronicle for years to ” promote” themselves as an outstanding public officials.  Anonymous cyber-stalkers were Snohomish County public officials Crystal Danielle Pennington, John E. Pennington, Kevin Hulten, Jon Rudicil, Brian Perry, Christopher Schwarzen, and Gold Bar’s mayor Joe Beavers.

At the time each were criminally harassing ( anonymously cyber-stalking) their political foes, all were public officials doing this while being paid by Washington State taxpayers.

Senator Steve Hobbs also started another “foe website” called Washington State’s Progressives and controlled the Lake Stevens News. Both websites were started to control the political messages here in Washington State otherwise known a Political Action Committee (PAC).

In 2016, the Sky Valley Chronicle was sued by the Gold Bar Reporter for defamation, and US Federal District Court Judge Martinez kicked the case, in direct conflict with a 9th Circuit ruling in Block v Snohomish County et al, which issued a court order telling the Gold Bar Reporter to go sue these people for defamation.

Gold Bar Reporter Block took the 9th Circuit’s advice and sued the Sky Valley Chronicle for defamation, including several public officials who were  anonymous bloggers, Crystal Daniele Pennington ( aka Crystal Hill Pennington, Crystal Hill and Chris Hill), John E Pennington, Kevin Thomas Hulten, Ron Fejfar, Christopher Schwarzen ( former Seattle Times reporter) and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers.

Thankfully last week, Seattle US Federal District Court Judge Robart held that all state causes of actions, even when submitted to US Federal Court, are subject to “notice pleading” thus lending support to the Gold Bar Reporter’s suit against the Sky Valley Chronicle for state cause of action for defamation and Little RICO.

In September 2018, a source from the WSBA notified Block that Block v WSBA et al was coming back from the 9th Circuit.  All of the sudden, the Sky Valley Chronicle sudden shut down, vanished into thin air.  Why is simple: Block is going to start deposing people, and the Sky Valley Chronicle was ordered in 2010 to preserve all records in native format including metadata until litigation is resolved.

As of today, the Sky Valley Chronicle is under a litigation hold, and once the case comes back, Block is going to start taking depositions on every single blogger or person involved with the Sky Valley Chronicle, and that includes Senator Steve Hobbs, his brother in law Jon Rudicil as well as several Gold Bar and county public officials.

Readers may remember that Jon Rudicil was caught criminally harassing the Gold Bar Reporter with Kevin Thomas Hulten as exposed by the Everett Daily Herald on February 13, 2013.  Kevin Thomas Hulten plead guilty to criminal evidence tampering in Block v Snohomish County et al and sentenced for his crimes.  More recently Kevin Thomas Hulten was caught shop lifting from Colville Washington three times, and fled Washington State for the San Francisco Bay area hoping to lay low for seven years, but not before Kevin Hulten made a public on the record statement at the Public Disclosure Hearing in Olympia that he and Jon Rudicil created a company to criminally harass their political foes, and launder money. There is no evidence that Jon Rudicil or Kevin Hulten ever paid federal income tax on the revenue generated from their fraudulent company.

Our readers should be happy to know that criminal harasser Jon Rudicil is the Director of Washington Association of Area Agencies on Aging.  How lovely that a harasser is Director of an Association that supposed to be helping our elderly.  This after Jon Rudicil and Kevin Hulten were exposed for criminal harassment by the Daily Herald.  https://www.heraldnet.com/news/labyrinth-reardon-staff-linked-to-harassment-surveillance/

In 2013, as a result of the Gold Bar Reporter extensive reports on massive racketeering crimes being committed by Snohomish County Executive Officers as outlined by the Herald article above, Jon Rudicil, Kevin Hulten, John Pennington, and Senators Steve Hobbs and Tracy Eide were booted out of public office.

But not before Executive Aaron Reardon’s mistress told the Gold Bar Reporter that Senator Steve Hobbs had a little plan.

On February 13, 2013, public records document that Senator Steve Hobbs and Tracy Edie met with Snohomish County employees Kevin Hulten, Executive Aaron Reardon, prosecutor Sean Reay, and Jon Rudicil on how the little racketeering gang would get Anne Block disbarred by using Washington State Senator Tracy Eide’s cousin at the WSBA ODC, Linda Eide.  The meeting took place at Executive Aaron Reardon’s office inside Snohomish County Washington.

According to our attorney, ” all you need is two or more people to meet, make an agreement to violate your civil rights, and you have a criminal racketeering conspiracy, punishable by 25 years to life”.

According to Aaron Reardon’s mistress, Senator Steve Hobbs was upset that Anne Block was screwing up his little racketeering plan to thwart the democratic rights of the voters. ” Steve Hobbs and Aardon had a plan. Reardon was going to the governor’s mansion and council members Stephanie Wright and Brian Sullivan would implant Steve Hobbs as a the next Executive” Reardon mistress stated to the Reporter.

But then along came the Gold Bar Reporter who exposed Steve Hobbs and Aaron Reardon’s racketeering crimes against the taxpayers of Washington State, setting up a foe online website titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle’ to control the message, publish any article they so desired, and criminally harass their political foes.”  Steve Hobbs’s number one attack piece was the Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block.

In October 2016, Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in a separate lawsuit where he admitted that he was meeting with Executive Aaron Reardon’s staff, he was editing WSBA complaints against the Gold Bar Reporter, and was anonymously criminally harassing Block on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

A Snohomish County source said ‘ Mark Roe was part of the harassment you suffered on the Sky Valley Chronicle, and so many executive officers were blogging on the Chronicle, that there’s no doubt Mark Roe and Sara Di Vittorio were tampering with public records by withholding records that documented that Snohomish County employees were all allowed to blog on the Sky Valley Chronicle to harass and defame you.”

Sadly for the Snohomish County’s racketeering gang, King County Major Crimes Unit turned over Kevin Hulten and Chris Schwarzen’s  county hard drives documenting that each were anonymously cyber-stalking political foes including Gold Bar Reporter Block on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

In article after article, county employees were allowed to write the article and the Sky Valley Chronicle would simply publish the article without edits by its alleged officer, Ron Fejar ( aka Chet Rogers; Ron Fox; and Ron Febbar).

In December 2018, John E Pennington was caught once again cyber-stalking the Gold Bar Reporter by doing exactly what Kevin Hulten was guilty of, criminal harassment, using Wikipedia to publish false statements by electronic means.  In December 2018, John Pennington was notified that a Little RICO and Defamation suit has been started against him.

Steve Hobbs in 2018 managed to dup the voters into electing him back to the Washington State Senate, and according to public records, is back at his same old shit, criminally harassing anyone who dares to expose him as the criminal deviant harasser he is.

After understanding his involvement in this racketeering scandal up here in Snohomish County, the Reporter contacted Steve Hobbs telling him that we are going to expose his crimes against Snohomish County taxpayers and his involvement in racketeering crimes against the Gold Bar Reporter.

So what did Senator Steve Hobbs decide to do as a result of our statement, he picked up the phone called disgraced/terminated Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management John E. Pennington ( a man who abuses women and children) and conspired with Sentor Steve Hobbs to harm Anne Block once again.

Remember Senator Tracy Eide and Steve Hobbs met and conspired to have Senator Tracy Eide’s cousin and lead Washington State Bar Association Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorney Linda Eide disbar Block over her First Amendment protected activity i.e exposing corruption inside Snohomish County Washington.

And the dum asses put their crimes inside public records subjected to RCW 42.56 here in Washington State.   Email communication confirms beyond any shadow of a doubt that John Pennington, and Washington State Bar counsel ( terminated recently) Linda Eide are guilty of racketeering and should be in prison with all deliberate speed.

Just last week, the Gold Bar Reporter learned that John E Pennington is now on his 10th year of trying to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime for engaging in First Amendment protected activity, but this time, according to an insider at Pierce County, he is trying to manipulate the new prosecutor Mary Robnet, sucking her into his little racketeering organization, by having her maliciously prosecute the Gold Bar Reporter.

Because the Gold Bar Reporter values the First Amendment as the one tangible item on this planet, one can assume that any attack against the First Amendment will be met with lawsuits.

Once Senator Steve Hobbs learned that we intend to publish articles about his involvement in running and starting the Sky Valley Chronicle, who did Senator Steve Hobbs call? You guessed it, disgrace wife beater and terminated former Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management John E Pennington.

Both John Pennington and Senator Steve Hobbs were on the Gold Bar Reporter together, Senator Steve Hobbs from his home, and John E Pennington from his iPhone looking at the article written about Senator Steve Hobbs.

Senator Steve Hobbs’s home IP address is

Washington State has such lovely State Senators committing racketeering crimes against citizens. This story is just the tip of the ice berg involving Senator Steve ” harasser” Hobbs.

May the sunlight shine on every public official involved in John E Pennington’s  racketeering enterprise.

Snohomish County Prosecutors and attorneys tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center data

September 12, 2018 by goldbarreporter 1 Comment

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi decided to have a meeting with a federal witness Brandia Tamuu.  Besides the obvious, tampering with a federal witness ( a felony in Washington), both entered into a bribery scheme to remove the witness’s criminal arrest warrant and criminal history from the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) criminal data base.

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi decided to have a meeting with a federal witness Brandia Tamuu.  Besides the obvious, tampering with a federal witness ( a felony in Washington), both entered into a bribery scheme to remove the witness’s criminal arrest warrant and criminal history from the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) criminal data base.

Public records from the City of Gold Bar, from November 21 to December 20, 2017, document that in November 2017, Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto were contacted for a meeting by a convicted animal abuser. The woman was desperate for money, had in fact tried extort the Gold Bar Reporter for money/car, and had offered to meet up with Ragonesi and Soto at the Law Firm of Keating Bucklin McCormack Inc in downtown Seattle. Brandia Tammu needed money as she was being threatened with eviction from her home.  In exchange for meeting with Ragonesi and Soto, the woman would get money and her City of Everett arrest warrant and conviction for animal abuse would be cleared.  Tammu claimed to have dirt on the Gold Bar Reporter, but had nothing of value except speculation on why the Gold Bar Reporter moved West, and it was quite apparent from an insider at the law office that the woman is suffering from mental health issues.

According to the woman, Ragonesi and Soto agreed to clear her criminal arrest warrant and conviction from NCIC via ACCESS.

Ragonesi and Soto also told the woman that they could issue secret subpoenas for any document they so desired, and further offered to help the woman get a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports.  One witness said that the woman recorded their meeting, but we have no knowledge of whether this is true or not.

The Washington State Patrol turned over the woman’s criminal history one week before and a week after the Ragonesi and Soto November  2017 bribery  meeting, and it is clear that just days after this meeting, the criminal conviction record and arrest warrant were wiped from NCIC via ACCESS.  The person who cleared the woman’s ACCESS records was Michael Meyers, King County police officer.

The City of Gold Bar, at the bequest of Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi, illegally claimed that the meeting records were exempt from public disclosure. Obviously, a lawsuit forcing disclosure is coming, and Ms. Soto and Ms. Ragonesi will be deposed.

In early 2018, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem agreed to an interview with the Gold Bar Reporter and he said ” those people who are threatening you are now threatening me.”


Judge Janice Ellis, creator of Dawson Place a 501 (3)(c) violating the rights of Washingtonians, fails to disclose to a single defendant while she was the trial judge that she created Dawson Place with federal and state taxpayer monies 

 

Snohomish County government making Adolf Hitler proud

September 4, 2018 by goldbarreporter 1 Comment 

 

The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless. 

-John McCain 

 

” We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ” Plato

Two such judicial officers right here in Snohomish County Washington are Judge Janice Ellis and Judge George Appel.  Adolf Hitler would quite proud on how our American judicial system has progressed in favor of the state.

 

A few weeks ago, the Gold Bar Reporter broke the story of a so called 501 (3)  ( c) titled  http://dawsonplace.org/.

“Dawson Place was the best kept secret” Mark Roe attested to under oath in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place.  What disgraced ( and recently resigned) former Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe was referring to was a shadow government agency titled Dawson Place. This allows the County to cherry pick which cases to prosecute or which cases to sweep under the rug when Dawson Place is a participant in criminal complaints.

The true purpose of setting up Dawson Place as a non-profit is two fold.

First, there’s no doubt that Dawson Place is being used to set up defendants. Imagine this: Dawson Place, an alleged 501 (3) (  c)   has Prosecutors inside, has law enforcement inside, and a store front political appointee of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s childhood friend Lori Vanderburg.

Here’s how Dawson Place works. Snohomish County government refers all rape and sexually abuse allegations to Dawson Place. An alleged non-profit. At Dawson Place an alleged victim fills out an intake form.  The intake form is sent to the Prosecutors, Sheriff’s department, and to Dawson Place’s political director ( and childhood friend of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe).

Compass Health performs medical evaluations on the alleged victims, most of the time. However, to get to the medical evaluation, first a interview is set up by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.  The interview is recorded by video means.

By claiming that Dawson Place is a non-profit group, the video is withheld under RCW 42.56 claiming that its not a public record.  Participants of this interview includes Snohomish County prosecutors and sheriff’s officers inside Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit group.

But if this doesn’t strike readers as being a gross deprivation of due process rights of the accused, here’s a few more facts about how the Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers are fixing the entire case against those accused of child abuse and rape.

Other participants in violating the rights of the accused, Compass Health,  Victim Support Services and Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.  

Compass Health is simply a store front shrill so Snohomish County Prosecutors can fix cases against the accused.  Compass Health makes decisions about whether someone is competent to stand trial and whether or not a victim at Dawson Place has or has not been violated by the accused.

When a defendant is charged with molesting or rape of a child, Compass Health performs the mental health evaluation for Snohomish County Judiciary. The mental health evaluation is then sent to the trial judge for determination on whether a defendant is competent to stand trial.

We could find not one single case in which Compass Health did not state that a defendant was competent to stand trial when the case referral came from Dawson Place.

So imagine this. You are a defendant charged with the hideous crime of raping or molesting a child.  First point of order, Judge Appel or Judge Ellis are mainly assigned to as the trial judge in your case. They refer you over to Compass Health to obtain a mental health evaluation.  Compass Health is also in charge of collecting evidence on whether the victim who is alleging you either molested or raped them can move forward for physical evidence ( often sperm).

Second, this allows Snohomish County Prosecutors to fix all cases at all levels. And it only gets worse.

Imagine the Judge assigned to adjudicate your case never discloses to you that she or he also worked at Dawson Place and had helped start Dawson Place, this so called 501 (3) ( c).

If this inst bad enough, hold onto your seats.  After Dawson Place’s Board ( which includes Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff) holds meetings and votes on whether to prosecute your case, it’s assigned often to a public defender.

Snohomish County Public Defenders Association’s Director/attorney and partner Vicki Norris is from the law firm of Anderson Hunter. Ms. Norris is married to a former partner from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter, Robert Leach. Mr. Leach  received a political appointment to Washington Court of Appeals Div. One. .

Robert Leach’s political appointment was made by Governor Christine Gregoire. Robert Leach’s gift to Ms. Gregoire included a deferral of a valid Bar complaint filed against Ms. Christine Gregoire. The Bar complaint was filed by attorney/.activist John Scannell. Allegations were that Gregoire missed a filing deadline costing the taxpayers of Washington State over $25,000,000.00 while she was the Attorney General of Washington State.

Vicki Norris, Judge Robert Leach’s wife was on the Washington State Bar Association’s Disciplinary Review Committee Gregoire’s Bar complaint was filed by Scannell.  Washington State Bar Association’s Review Committee makes decision on whether to proceed or not proceed with an investigation on the attorney member.

In the case of the Bar complaint attorney John Scannell filed against Governor Gregoire, Vicki Norris lost it or at least claimed she did.

At the time of Gregoire’s appointment of Robert Leach to Division One Court of Appeals, Robert Leach had zero judicial experience.  We call it what it is, a tit for tat political appointment for thwarting  a valid Bar complaint  against then Attorney General Christine Gregoire for costing the taxpayers of Washington State $25,000,000.00 for missing simple court deadlines.

The OK Boys Home lawsuits were settled as a result of AG Gregoire’s missing a simple deadline ( statute of limitations). However, what our readers should know is why the OK Boys became a law suit.  Inside the Ok Boys home, several foster boys made allegations of  sexual abuse against politicians from Olympia, and the main reason why Governor Gregoire’s decided to throw the case by missing a simple filing deadline. By doing so, this forced the State to settle the case.

This allowed a major cover up of known politicians who sexually abused foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home.  Soon we will release a list of politicians involved in molesting foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home, so hold onto your seats, grab some popcorn and beer, as this list is a list that  includes why terminated/disgraced former Dept of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington has been extorting his way out of criminal prosecutions for years. Criminal prosecutions include abuse of women and children and killing 43 people in the Oso mudslides, because instead of doing his job, Pennington was off on east coast performing functions for FEMA.  The Office of Inspector General’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporter that any agency employee receiving a single dime  of federal money is not eligible for FEMA contracts; and Snohomish County Ordianace prohibits all salaried employees from working any other job.

But this list explains why mainly politicians like John E Pennington, Marlin Applewick, and Ken Hoover get a free pass on allegations of child abuse here in Washington State.

Simply put, Dawson Place perverts justice by making the workings inside Dawson Place not public record.

Not only does Dawson Place hide who filed the criminal complaints, but it also hides who those complaints were filed against i.e. politicians. As reported last week, it was set up by Snohomish County Prosecutor now Judge Janice Ellis with 95 % of public monies.

I rightfully call Dawson Place a sham, and by perverting justice by its set up, also argue that its guilty of Sherman Anti Trust violations. Perhaps the Gold Bar Reporter will file a taxpayer standing suit soon.

Now onto another scam 501 (3) (c), i.e. Victim Support Services (VSS). VSS receives its referrals solely from Snohomish County Prosecutors office as does Snohomish County public defense contracts.  In other words, not only does Snohomish County control and operate a secret organization titled Dawson Place, it also controls the Snohomish County Public Defenders contracts and VSS.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell has been quite busy learning how to thwart the legal rights of Defendants here in Snohomish County.  Up until we started investigating VSS, Adam Cornell was the Director  and Board Member of Victims Support Services. But it gets better, so too was a public defender named Tom Cox.

So imagine, you are charged with the crime of molesting or raping a child. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office refers your criminal defense to Tom Cox or worse Phil Sayles. Both are supporters or Board Members of  VSS.  What a conflict to be supporting another alleged non-profit group  VSS, while at the same time hand picked by the Snohomish County Prosecutors Office to defend criminal prosecutions against the accused.

Overall, here’s our findings. Snohomish County Government decides who gets assigned to defend you when you’re charged with a crime. The taxpayers are paying for your defense, and it Snohomish County that hand picks which incompetent public defender gets assigned.  Seldom do you the accused get a public defender who hasn’t failed the Bar countless times, nor do you get to have someone defend you who hasn’t been referred by Snohomish County Prosecutors.

We rightfully call this case fixing at every level. With the cards stacked against the accused, is there such a thing as a fair trial?  If true, should not the officials involved herein be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of the accused or charged with RICO?


Snohomish County’s Malicious Prosecution of Immigrant Ramanveer Bains

Good morning Saudi Arabia,  Snohomish County Washington has a lot in common i.e. fixing cases to condemn the accused for life. Thankfully because of Governor Jay Inslee’s moratorium against the death penalty, Snohomish County wont be able to put you to death.

See https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/washington-governor-announces-moratorium-executions

 

In June 2017, Snohomish County activist/journalist Lori Shavlik discovered what’s really happening inside Dawson Place i.e. Snohomish County Child Advocacy Services.  In 2017, Lori Shavlik field suit against Dawson Place for access to public records. She correctly alleged that Dawson Place is a secret government agency hiding behind non-profit status ( 501 (3) ( c).

Ms. Shavlik correctly pointed out that Snohomish County Prosecutors started Dawson Place and they did so with 95 % of public monies.  The total amount of public monies Dawson Place has received thus far exceeds 27 million.  She also pointed out that Dawson Place performs mainly government functions of law enforcement and prosecutor decisions.

Strangely most the millions of public monies received by Dawson Place never make it to its tax returns.

Much of what was reported herein would not have been possible without her persistent digging inside public records.

In November 2017, the Gold Bar Reporter sat in the audience listening to oral argument in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place. The issue: is Dawson Place public agency under Our Supreme Court’s Telford holding, thus subject to RCW 42.56 ( the Public Records Act).

For those not familiar with Telford’s holding, here’s a link that might help:

http://joethomas.org/2016/02/washington-public-records-quasi-govermnet-agency-test/ 

Every judge inside Snohomish County voluntarily disqualified themselves except Judge George Appel and Judge Cindy Larson.

Public records from various news sources confirm that both Cindy Larsen and Judge George Appel worked inside Dawson Place as prosecutors for Snohomish County.  Judge Janice Ellis, while acting as prosecutor in Snohomish County, started Dawson Place with former Prosecutor Seth Dawson. Hence how Dawson Place got its name. For those of who knew Seth Dawson as the corrupt prosecutor he is, naming Dawson Place after him was just a little booster.

There’s no doubt about it, Judge Janice Ellis helped Prosecutor Seth Dawson start  Dawson Place.  She did so with mainly public monies.  She solicited public monies in violation of Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, thumbed her nose at the rule of law, and misappropriated hundreds of thousands of public resources to help start Dawson Place.

The Gold Bar Reporter reported Judge Janice Ellis’s involvement in all of this a few weeks ago.

See https://goldbarreporter.org/2018/08/

Since the above expose’ on Dawson Place, the Gold Bar Reporter has since learned that there are countless cases that should be investigated, one such case is the case against Ramanveer Bains.

For those of my readers who have a slant against Muslims, please don’t send hate mail, unless you’d like your comments public. In addition, please note that the Gold Bar Reporter’s ancestors were German and Austrian immigrants. In other words, the Gold Bar Reporter doesn’t have time for your hatred based solely on religious beliefs and attempts to control the Biblical story.

My only God is ” justice” and she sees nor has any favored religion nor favored color of a human’s skin to distinguish  between who gets justice inside our courtrooms and who does not.   Justice is defined by honest services. As my readers can see, honest services is something missing inside Snohomish County Washington. Why is simple, because instead of prosecuting criminals, attorneys are siphoning public money and holding kangaroo proceedings with incompetent defense attorneys whose only interest is not working or just simply incompetent like Phil Sayles ( Division One held that Sayles was ineffective assistance of counsel, a disbarable event).

Judge George Appel’s crimes against Ramanveer Bains

the above opinion letters were signed by Snohomish County employees, Detective R. Lewis, Christopher Yue, Keri Wallace, Kaia Scott, Amanda Harpell, and Cindy Larsen and was originally posted on https://www.heraldnet.com/opinion/appel-works-with-child-advocates/

Ramanveer Bains was first accused of raping a 12 year old boy. There was no  physical evidence of a rape, confirmed by Compass Health. Instead of admitting that Snohomish County screwed up, under the disgraced and retired Lisa Paul, Snohomish County Prosecutors decided the best way cover up their conspiracy to harm an immigrant was to prosecute Mr Bains on a lesser charge.  But there was only one problem, the 12 year old child gave over six (6) different stories and none amounted to Mr. Bains being guilty of anything except a 12 year old child being lonely after school friending a neighbor who happens to be a Muslim immigrant.

Another journalist sat down with Ramanveer Bains last week and learned that he doesn’t speak nor understand English. Although not the central point of this article, we did run a check on his court record and found no evidence that Mr. Bains was offered nor received an interpreter.  What Mr. Bains did receive was a clean bill of health from Compass Health stating that he was competent to stand trial.

Trial begins. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office hand picks the public defender.  Neil Patterson and Tom Cox.

In the Bains appeal,  who is better equipped to throw the case but a known member of the County’s little scam, attorney Tom Cox.  Tom Cox, as my readers may recall, is also a good friend to Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell, and both served on Victim Support Services Board together.

So imagine this. Mr. Baines has a public defender and good friend of the lead Dawson Place prosecutor Adam Cornell assigned by Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office to defend against allegations that he molested or sought sexual gratification from a 12 year boy.  Snohomish County started Dawson Place. Dawson Place decides who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t; Dawson Place, Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers meet and vote on whether to prosecute you or not. They do this behind closed doors and then claim that this Board is not subject to the Open Public Meetings Act.   Once the decision is made to prosecute you, Snohomish County assigns you the accused to Compass Health. Compass Health is also a participant on whether or not there’s enough evidence to proceed with a criminal prosecution of you or not.  However, once Snohomish County/ Dawson Place files the complaint against you the accused, Snohomish County Judiciary shuffles you the accused back to Compass Health for a competency test. Compass Health is allowed to makes decisions on whether to prosecute and also whether you are competent to stand trial .

Fixing cases, or money laundering or perhaps both?

After Compass Health decides that you the accused are competent ( as there is no case where Compass Health ever held that a defendant wasn’t competent to stand trial), next point of order from our good friends inside Snohomish County is what judge will be assigned.

 

Lo and behold, two Judges are almost always assigned to adjudicate Dawson Place cases, Judge George Appel and Judge Janice Ellis. Remember from the above Herald opinion piece, Judge Appel worked inside Dawson Place, and from my past article from August 2018, Judge Janice Ellis started Dawson Place and had a pecuniary interest by way of a 12 % loan.

Not once did Judge George Appel disclose his participation in Dawson Place to Mr. Bains.

For Mr. Bains, this little racketeering scheme denied him access to Justice.  Judge George Appel never not once disclosed to Ramanveer Bains or in a open hearing that he worked inside Dawson Place. Perhaps if Mr. Bains had known, he might have exercised his right to ‘ disqualify a Snohomish County judge as a matter of right once.” But Mr. Bain did not because Judge George Appel did not disclose that while he was a Prosecutor he worked  inside Dawson Place. Obviously, if you’re a corrupt judge, you can’t fix cases if the accused is informed, and as for Ramanveer Bains, a man who speaks little English, he was doomed from the get go.

Pages from Ramanveer Bains-2_Page_2

Doomed, not only because George Appel thought it was justifiable to violate the rights of the accused, but also because Mr. Bains’s does not understand English, and with the anti-Muslim rhetoric in this so called American democracy lately,  Mr. Bains had no idea about this little racketeering scam he was up against.

In 2016, Ramanveer Bains was convicted not of child rape as originally pursued by our disgraceful excuse for Prosecutors, but for sexual gratification involving a minor.  But wait, one last piece of information, the 12 year child was interviewed six (6) times yielding a different statement in all six interviews.  The Prosecutor used only the interview that supported its position, and then hide the rest under seal from the jury, and Judge Appel squashes any attempt to include the other six interviews. Thus, fixing the case against Mr. Bains.

As for Mr. Bains so called public defender, he did nothing except agree to “seal Dawson Place interviews” so that Mr. Bains could not use the interviews to support his appeal.

Mr. Bains remains imprisoned for a crime he may or may not have committed. With the cards stacked against the accused, we may never know if Mr. Bains committed the crime he was found guilty of.  Until Mr. Bains gets a fair trial, we shall never know.

We do however know that Ramanveer Bains had no past criminal history whatsoever.

You decide is this is our so called American Democracy or not?  The only advocate on the 9th Circuit for Justice was the former Chief Justice Alex Kozinski, but false allegations against Justice Kozinski managed to conspire to push him out of the 9th Circuit.

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

October 20, 2017 by goldbarreporter 4 Comments

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

Error! Filename not specified.

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.

See Deposition of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe, West/Shavlik v Dawson Place.

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 recognizance 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 fort).

 

Click  Mark Roe Depo

 

No longer is it acceptable to say “Mark Roe needs to go” , it is time for the county taxpayers to demand  that ” Mark Roe must go, and not on his terms”

 

Mark Roe needs to go, and the voters should not have to wait until December 31, 2018, to rid our county of the criminals who are misusing our resources for their own political agenda.

 

In my opinion, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe should be in prison for misuse of our county resources for his own political capital, withholding evidence in countless criminal trials by claiming that “Dawson Place” is a non-profit group.

 

Mark Roe’s deposition make one thing clear,  Mark Roe, Seth Dawson, Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell created a secret government agency, Dawson Place.  A place that Mark Roe can claim that no public records exist, hide law enforcement investigations and evidence by claiming it’s a private non-profit group in violation of basic constitutional principles I love more than the practice of law.

 

As such, Mark Roe’s Recall must move forward regardless of whether he decides to retire next year, as our open government laws here in Washington cannot wait for Mark Roe to go, nor should the county taxpayers write a single check in support of his blatant disrespect and disregard for the constitutional rights of Washingtonians.

 

Dawson Place needs a lot of sunshine and RCW 42.56 is just the remedy to cure Snohomish County’s ” Domestic Spying Ring” also known as Dawson Place.


Snohomish County Prosecutors Adam Cornell, Judge Janice Ellis, and County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs, racketeering and money laundering crimes exposed in public records

August 22, 2018 by goldbarreporter 2 Comments 

 

“Money laundering is a very sophisticated crime and we must be equally sophisticated.” Janet Reno, former US Attorney General 

 

Wikipedia:   Money laundering is the act of concealing the transformation of profits from illegal activities and corruption into ostensibly “legitimate” assets.The dilemma of illicit activities is accounting for the origin of the proceeds of such activities without raising the suspicion of law enforcement agencies. Accordingly, considerable time and effort is put into devising strategies which enable the safe use of those proceeds without raising unwanted suspicion. Implementing such strategies is generally called money laundering. After money has been suitably laundered or “cleaned”, it can be used in the mainstream economy for accumulation of wealth, such as acquisitions of properties, or otherwise spent. Law enforcement agencies of many jurisdictions have set up sophisticated systems in an effort to detect suspicious transactions or activities, and many have set up international cooperative arrangements to assist each other in these endeavors. In a number of legal and regulatory systems, the term “money laundering” has become conflated with other forms of financial and business crime, and is sometimes used more generally to include misuse of the financial system (involving things such as securities, digital currencies, credit cards, and traditional currency), including terrorism financing and evasion of international sanctions.Most anti-money laundering laws openly conflate money laundering (which is concerned with source of funds) with terrorism financing (which is concerned with destination of funds) when regulating the financial system.[3]

In June 2017, Snohomish County activist/journalist Lori Shavlik discovered what’s really happening inside Dawson Place i.e. Snohomish County Child Advocacy Services. But this wasn’t the first time Dawson Place came under Ms. Shavlik’s radar.

Ms. Shavlik was a same business owner in Snohomish County, Washington, from 2000 to 2011.  She owned two tanning salons, one in Monroe, and another in the City of Snohomish. One day she learned that her daughter had been violently assaulted inside the Monroe High School.  As such, she demanded justice, prosecution and support services for her daughter.

As any mother knows, the first step is to seek support services.  This landed Ms. Shavlik on the front steps of Dawson Place. Dawson Place alleges to be a non-profit support group for victims of physical and sexual assault.

 http://dawsonplace.org/

 

” We show kids who’ve been sexually and physically abused that they deserve to be happy, and we help them see how….”

Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecutor and Board Member of Dawson Place.

 

Last year, we contacted Dawson Place seeking an interview to discuss what exactly does Dawson Place do.  For the Gold Bar Reporter, informing the public about what services are available for children who are sexually abused is as important to me as exposing corruption inside government.  Dawson Place refused to comment to our request for information.

In early May 2018, we entered the office of Dawson Place asking a few questions regarding who performs the child interviews, who works inside Dawson Place, and who gets to decide what cases are prosecuted.  Instead of the office worker answering our questions, Dawson Place’s Director Lori Vanderburg threatened to have us arrested for trespassing.

Lori Vanderburg is a licensed social worker, and a childhood friend of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe. From the above quote, Mark Roe openly brags about being a Board of Director member for Dawson Place.  We could find no evidence that Lori Vanderberg has any prior experience with dealing with children who are victims or may not be victims of sexual abuse.  She is simply a store front political appointment made by her dear childhood friend and Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe.

But why, what is the purpose of creating an alledged non-profit company titled ” Dawson Place” is something that took me over a year to fully understand, and had it not been for Ms. Shavlik’s persistent digging inside public records, and one whistle-blower Amy May ( Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Public Records Officer), Dawson Place i.e Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, Judge Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell and attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs’s money laundering and racketeering scheme would have stayed under the radar.

For this, I dedicate this article to Lori Shavlik, who has inspired me beyond any other person in my life, aside from two law school professors who said ” Anne’, you’re going to instigate change where change is needed.”

I live my life by John Adams quote ” always stand on principle even if you stand alone.’

In June 2017, Lori Shavlik filed suit against Dawson Place seeking access to public records.  Dawson Place immediately responded stating that it is not a public agency under RCW 42.56, thus they had no duty to produce records. However, as an alleged non-profit group, Dawson Place admitted it was required to produce IRS tax filings.  From here, this lead us to uncovering, in my opinion, the largest racketeering and money laundering scheme involving Snohomish County Prosecutors, at least one County Judge, and one notorious contractor who has been stealing federal tax payer monies on several schemes.

The Board of Directors at Dawson Place include Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary, Prosecutors Mark Roe and Judge Janice Ellis, and Everett Chief of Police Kathy Atwood, and many other government officials, plus one non-government officer from Compass Health.

Imagine this: Snohomish County government officers are running this alleged non-profit group titled Dawson Place, they are doing this on the taxpayer’s dime, and then claim its a non-profit group.  They use Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers, including one Brady Cop named David Fontenot. Non-profit or agency?

Snohomish County Sheriff officer David Fontenot was fired and recommended for criminal prosecution after he was caught fixing crime scenes, stealing guns from the evidence locker, unlawful arrest of his girlfriend’s soon to be ex, sexually harassing women in Challam County, and tasering a handcuffed man inside a police car.

Snohomish County Prosecutors Adam Cornell and Mark Roe decided to assign a man guilty of sexually harassing women as a the lead detective at Dawson Place.

Pretty laughable stuff, but bigger question for us open government supporters, why? Why are government officers running Dawson Place and misappropriating public monies and resources to operate it?

Last week, Snohomish County Public Records Officer Amy Nay handed us the answer via a release of public records. This after the County filed countless false statements with Judge Cindy Larson ( another judge who helped operate Dawson Place while inside the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office) obtaining a favorable dismissal claiming ” Snohomish County had nothing to do with starting nor operating Dawson Place.” Chief County Prosecutor who lied under oath Sara Di Vittorio ( in my past articles we referred to her as Sister Sara, the 5th Mule).

Sara Di Vittorio is a former Washington State Attorney General, who was constructively terminated from the AG’s Office after then AG Rob McKenna caught Sister Sara tampering with public records in 2009. The records Sister Sara illegally removed were records sent from Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill to Department of Correction ( Monroe) warehouse employee Lonn Turner.

In March 2009, the Washington State Bar Association Board of Director G. Geoffrey Gibbs illegally obtained a copy of the Gold Bar Reporter’s Washington State Bar application file and then disseminated it to Weed, Gaafstra and Benson, who then disseminated it to Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill.

It is illegal for anyone to obtain a WSBA file except the member, and that was me.  Since that time, the WSBA has assisted in racketeering crimes for which they are being sued for, and subject to another suit coming soon.  Worthy of mentioning the connection, because it always seems like the same cockroaches are engaged in the same criminal racketeering crimes here in Washington State.

Although not the central point of this article, it’s important to know that the employees inside the County offices answering public records request are criminals. Remember the name G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

 

In 2006 to 2008, Snohomish County Prosecutor was Janice Ellis.  Public records released last week document that Janice Ellis started Dawson Place almost entirely with government resources.

RCW 36.27.020 is clear that starting non-profits and soliciting for public monies to start an alleged non-profit group is not listed in her government duties as a prosecutor. 

 

What does all this mean?  It means, Snohomish County Prosecutor Janice Ellis started Dawson Place. She solicited the federal, state and local governments for public money to fund Dawson Place.  Public money represents over 95 % of all funds used to operate Dawson Place, and it claims its not a public agency.

Sad for Ms. Ellis, the whistle-blower released public records documenting that Janice Ellis is the brains behind Dawson Place.

But the story doesn’t end here.

In 2009, Janice Ellis was appointed to an open Snohomish County Superior Court seat, and at the time Dawson Place Board member and Everett Chief of Police  Kathy Atwood said ” Ellis was the driving force in Dawson Place becoming a reality” and described Ellis as “kind but tough. ”

Through whistle-blower records, we also know that Janice Ellis was not only was the sole creator of Dawson Place, misusing public resources to help get Dawson Place started, she also loaned Dawson Place $300,000.00 with 12 % interest.

Public records searches from the Washington State business license lookup yielded no “creditor license” for Janice Ellis, and our Supreme Court held that if you loan money with interest, you must have a creditor’s license.

After learning that Judge Janice Ellis not only has a pecuniary interest in Dawson Place, totaling over $1000.00 per month from Dawson Place to pay only the interest on her loan, we started sifting through countless criminal trials where as she participated as the trial Judge with Dawson Place as a witness against the defendant, and as of today, we have found 15 and counting.

Imagine this: you are charged with the hideous crime of molesting or raping a child. Obviously, we want pedophiles behind bars, while at the same time, we must assure that the persons we are putting behind bars are guilty  of the crimes.

You are the defendant, and the county never discloses to you that the trial Judge, Janice Ellis, is the person who started Dawson Place.  Not only did Judge Ellis never disclose she started Dawson Place to a single defendant being prosecuted with the assistance of Dawson Place, Judge Ellis never disclosed to you the defendant that she has been funneling public monies to herself at $1000.00 per month to pay only the interest on her loan that helped jump start Dawson Place.

Washington State list of gross Cannon Rules violations comes to light here. See

https://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.list&group=ga&set=CJC

Above is a copy of the County deeds and loans Janice Ellis made to Dawson Place, and evidence she, while siting as a Judge, had a pecuniary interest in Dawson Place and never not once disclosed her interest in Dawson Place to countless defendants.

The Court records above are clear that Judge Janice has been violating the rights of the accused for over ten years. More on this soon.

 

From 2008 to March 8, 2016, Judge Janice Ellis funneled public monies to personal bank account via Dawson Place. Dawson Place is funded solely with public monies, and recently Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was deposed who agreed that Dawson Place is a public agency.

 

How and why Lori Shavlik started investing Dawson Place can be simply described as a caring mother who wanted to help her daughter and prosecute the perpetrator inside the Monroe High School.  But at the time, Ms. Shavlik had no idea that Dawson Place is operated and controlled solely with public monies, and had a real dilemma on their hands.

In 2008, Monroe High School Superintendent Ken Hoover was being accused of fathering a child to an underage student inside Monroe High School.  Prosecutors Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Janice Ellis, and Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs ( who was convicted of fraud and suspended permanently by the AG from Lobbying in Olympia), covered up Ken Hoover’s statutory rape of a student. At the same time Ms. Shavlik is complaining about Ken Hoover harassing her daughter for reporting the crime of rape, Hoover is asking for assistance in shutting Ms. Shavlik up, and he’s calling in favors from Dawson Place prosecutor Adam Cornell.

Adam Cornell has his own problems inside the OK Boys homes when he was a foster kid. Cornell was raised by a wife abuser, drunk, and drug addict and born Adam Stubbs.

After settling with the state of Washington, which includes a free college education and law degree, he settled down in Edmonds Washington with his wife who is also President of Starbucks sales. .

From 2011 to Present, Adam Cornell was assigned solely to misdemeanor crimes unit and supervisor of the Snohomish County District Court.

In 2009 Ms Shavlik is raising cane about the way her daughter was treated, threats made by Monroe Schools Superintendent ( who I call a pedophile), and why Snohomish County would not prosecute the rapist ( who is now in prison for crimes against women using a gun).

Prosecutors Mark Roe, Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell decided to the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to trump up arson charges on her using a Brady Cop named David Fontenot.  David Fontenot was fired from the University of Washington and Challam County Sheriff’s Office for sexually harassing women, stealing guns from the evidence locked, and tasering a handcuffed suspect while he was sitting the the backseat of a police car.  A stellar choice for assisting the prosecution with crimes hidden behind the walls of Dawson Place and alleged non-profit group to assist women and children with coping with the aftermaths of physical and sexual abuse.

 

Remember, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was assigned to Dawson Place, solely assigned to misdemeanor charges. In 2010, at the bequest of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Janice Ellis, Adam Cornell used Brady Cop David Fontenot to and a drug addict and paid county informant named Rebecca Bradshaw to stage a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s place of business in the City of Snohomish.

How we know Adam Cornell was involved in going after Lori Shavlik is simple, RCW 42.56 documents that Adam Cornell, a misdemeanor prosecutor directed David Fontenot to falsify a search warrant, and then without finding a single piece of evidence in support of arson after three searches of Ms Shavlik’s place of business and home, Adam Cornell certified the probable cause against Lori Shavlik for felony arson.

Between 2010 and March 8, 2016, Lori Shavlik was maliciously prosecuted by Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Franchaca Yadavi,  Judge Janice Ellis, Brady Cop David Fontenot and an undisclosed Brady Cop Kendra Connelly. Not once, but twice. One hung jury and one complete acquittal.

From pubic emails, we also know that Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell illegally contacted Ms. Shavlik’s defense attorney John Crowley’s intern James Elliott asking him to dig into John Crowley’s clients files. Purpose, to dig up dirt on John Crowley.  Why, so Adam Cornell and Washington State Bar Board of Governor G. Geoffrey Gibbs could get attorney John Crowley disbarred for refusing to throw his client, Lori Shavlik, under the bus.

Immediately following Adam Cornell’s email letter to attorney John Crowley’s intern, James Elliot was awarded for assisting the Snohomish County RICO Enterprise of getting John Crowley disbarred with the Washington State Bar Association, with a new job inside Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office. Elliot remains there today.

Bob Crowley probably never knew the extend of how Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell and Snohomish County’s hired thug and contractor G. Geoffrey Gibbs used political influence inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel to “extort” John Crowley’s Washington State Bar license, but we do, as we have public emails documenting that Adam Cornell is guilty of RICO and should be inside a federal prison until the day he takes his last breath.

Criminals like Adam Cornell, Judge Janice Ellis and G. Geoffrey Gibbs have no place inside county offices.

 

If having a Judge who started Dawson Place, who is  also receiving a pecuniary interest of $1000 per month from 2007 to March 8, 2018 from Dawson Place, sitting in on your case with Dawson Place as the main witness against you isn’t bad enough, we also know that Janice Ellis attempts to hide her money laundering scheme, she used another convicted fraudster and County Commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs as her personal attorney to launder public monies.

Above we posted the deed transfers, and how much public money has been siphoned off the top by Geoffrey Gibbs transferring and resales of the same Dawson Place building.  We disclosed this issue with a RICO attorney who said ” there is no legal basis to transfer properties back and forth that are already owned by the county.  If you look at the deed on the Dawson Place property, it’s clear its a County building. This begs one question: why are they buying and selling the same building with public monies, but yet it doesn’t show up in Dawson Place’s tax returns. For me this means someone is siphoning off public monies.”

This brings us back to G. Geoffrey Gibbs extensive criminal history of laundering public monies. His laundering schemes include, but probably are not solely limited to assisting the WSBA Bar members inside the guardian scam which also involves a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer ( also convicted guardian scammer, theft, embezzlement, and accepting $$ bribes from John E Pennington and Crystal Hill Berg to have the Gold Bar Reporter disbarred for reporting on their criminal history of bank fraud, theft, harassment, violently assaulting children and pedophilia) and stealing millions from the Snohomish County Housing Association, Snohomish County Public Defenders Association ( using Gibbs’s partner Vicki Norris and her husband Judge Robert Leach to fix cases), and theft of public monies using Dawson Place as a store front for their money laundering scheme.

Everett attorney and WA State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs caught red handed via public records filing false statements with Judicial Ethics Commission, and violating Sherman Anti-Trust to assist Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office in going after any lawyer who exposes corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs, the criminals inside the WA State Bar ( Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, and Doug Ende), and Snohomish County criminal Racketeering outfit (an RICO Enterprise operating from Snohomish County Judicial and Prosecutor’s Office).

In 2009, attorney Geoffrey Gibbs misused his political offices to assist Crystal Hill Pennington, John E. Pennington, Aaron Reardon, and Joe Beavers to cover up the Karl Marjerle sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.  Racketeering captured in public records.

Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for Racketeering five times in the last two years for his criminal conduct.  An email from Everett Prosecutor Michael Fischer from G. Geoffrey Gibbs has  Gibbs sending an email to a Prosecutor demanding that he file criminal assault charges against Carolyn Ryggs so that she will have to expend a very large retainer to hire counsel. Because Gibbs was in a land dispute with the Ryggs after public records confirmed that was using Judge Michael Downes to steal Carolyn Ryggs’s land.

Geoffrey Gibbs’s fraud in the 1990s as illustrated by the Washington Public Disclosure Commission is well documented below.

Now, Geoffrey Gibbs criminal Enterprise and public records confirm that Gibbs and Prosecutor Seth Fine are the main reason why Snohomish County yields over 40 % of disciplined lawyer inside the WA State Bar, while the highest populated county, King County ( Seattle) , only yields 12 %. According to our counsel, clear Sherman Anti-Trust violations; a federal felony.

We’re also working on a story linking the Klan to the ” Ok Boys Home” a story worth waiting for.

Just another stellar example of why the Washington State Bar will be abolished.

Mark Roe – Board of Director and President of Dawson Place 

 

“We show kids who’ve been sexually and physically abused that they deserve to be happy, and we help them see how….” Mark Roe.  However, if you’re a woman sexually assaulted, its ok.

Mark Roe’s actions below document quite nicely his disdain and lack of respect for women.

 

The Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office attorneys never cease to amaze me with their criminal conduct.  Criminal conduct that includes criminal harassment ( using a foe online website titled the Sky Valley Chronicle, allowing county employees to criminally harass and cyber-stalk persons who request access to public records or question Mark Roe’s criminal enterprise at the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office), tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center Records, threats to arrests person without authority of law, and now, allowing county prosecutors to take nude pictures of an intoxicated woman who appears to have no ability to consent.

Withdrawal of the consent after the communication has been made shall not prohibit any such employee of a newspaper, magazine, wire service, or radio or television station from divulging the communication or conversation.

In June 2018, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Chris Dickinson, 55, grouped a female co-worker at a party in Chelan while he was being paid to attend the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys’ conference, while two other prosecutors ( who Mark Roe refused to identify) took intimate / nude photos of a woman, who appears to be too intoxicated to consent. Our inside source said ” I understand that at least two of prosecutors passed those nude photos around on Snohomish County Prosecutors computers.”

According to a source inside Snohomish County, its believed that deputy prosecutors had dinner and then when out for drinks. Thereafter,  over ten Snohomish County prosecutors gathered in a hotel room on Lake Chelan.  A female prosecutor said she was moving a footstool when Christopher Dickinson grabbed her breast and tried to pull her onto his lap.


“For the powerful, crimes at what other commit” Noam Chomsky

Racketeering exposed in Prosecutor Mark Roe’s actions 

 

Instead of firing everyone involved in what appears to be criminal felonious conduct, Mark Roe, claims that he ordered mandatory sexual harassment training for his staff…and reprimanded one other deputy prosecutor for actions that night and admonished others for not taking quicker, more decisive steps to intervene.”

“I admonished several other people who were there that night,” Roe said. “I had them in my office. I told them that I expected more … If you see anything, even it it is something you are not directly involved with, you need to report it.”

 

Mark Roe determined the pictures were taken in poor judgment. Mahjoubian received a letter of reprimand on July 6.

Instead of being criminally prosecuted as the felons they are, Deputy prosecutor Kirk Mahjoubian, who took felonious pictures of woman was simply disciplined, a slap on the wrist for committing a felony.

 

Snohomish County’s prosecutor, Mark Roe, confirmed that a Chelan County detective interviewed a female deputy prosecutor yesterday who said longtime deputy prosecutor Christopher Dickinson grabbed her breasts during a legal conference in Chelan last month.

 

The Gold Bar Reporter is demanding the Chelan County charge every single prosecutor involved in taking nude pictures of a woman without her consent with felonies.

Criminal prosecution should not just be for those not associated with the Washington State Bar Association and Snohomish County criminal organization otherwise known Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

 

Mark Roe allowing persons to sexually assault a woman and then takes intimate pictures of woman without her consent should be investigated by the US Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with all deliberate speed.

 

The ” Me Too” Movement should be demanding that every prosecutor involved herein be prosecuted to the fullest extent  of the law.

Snohomish County Prosecutors and attorneys tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center data

Soto        Ragonesi

 Ann Marie Soto                                          Shannon Ragonesi 

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi decided to have a meeting with a federal witness Brandia Tamuu.  Besides the obvious, tampering with a federal witness ( a felony in Washington), both entered into a bribery scheme to remove the witness’s criminal arrest warrant and criminal history from the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) criminal data base.

Public records from the City of Gold Bar, from November 21 to December 20, 2017, document that in November 2017, Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto were contacted for a meeting by a convicted animal abuser. The woman was desperate for money, had in fact tried extort the Gold Bar Reporter for money/car, and had offered to meet up with Ragonesi and Soto at the Law Firm of Keating Bucklin McCormack Inc in downtown Seattle. Brandia Tammu needed money as she was being threatened with eviction from her home.  In exchange for meeting with Ragonesi and Soto, the woman would get money and her City of Everett arrest warrant and conviction for animal abuse would be cleared.  Tammu claimed to have dirt on the Gold Bar Reporter, but had nothing of value except speculation on why the Gold Bar Reporter moved West, and it was quite apparent from an insider at the law office that the woman is suffering from mental health issues.

According to the woman, Ragonesi and Soto agreed to clear her criminal arrest warrant and conviction from NCIC via ACCESS.

Ragonesi and Soto also told the woman that they could issue secret subpoenas for any document they so desired, and further offered to help the woman get a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports.  One witness said that the woman recorded their meeting, but we have no knowledge of whether this is true or not.

The Washington State Patrol turned over the woman’s criminal history one week before and a week after the Ragonesi and Soto November  2017 bribery  meeting, and it is clear that just days after this meeting, the criminal conviction record and arrest warrant were wiped from NCIC via ACCESS.  The person who cleared the woman’s ACCESS records was Michael Meyers, King County police officer.

The City of Gold Bar, at the bequest of Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi, illegally claimed that the meeting records were exempt from public disclosure. Obviously, a lawsuit forcing disclosure is coming, and Ms. Soto and Ms. Ragonesi will be deposed.

In early 2018, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem agreed to an interview with the Gold Bar Reporter and he said ” those people who are threatening you are now threatening me.”

 


NCIC was created to assist law enforcement track or apprehend persons that may be a danger to society or have outstanding criminal warrants. When a  police officer stops  a person driving or is a suspect,  s/he should know whether the person has a criminal history.  For this reason, ACCESS and NCIC are searched, hopefully alerting the officer a potential danger to them or outstanding court issues of the driver or suspect.  Self protection according to the US Supreme Court.

But here in Washington State, the FBI NCIC database via ACCESS is being tampered with as political favors, bribery schemes, and to enhance criminal sentencing if a defendant is convicted of crime.

Over the past year, we found case after case where mainly prosecutors inside King and Snohomish County government are illegally removing criminal history from the NCIC.

Here’s just three cases that illustrate quite nicely three Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe,  Wallace Langbehn III and Sean Reay’s criminal racketeering acts exposed in public NCIC records.

Sno County Prosecutor Sean Reay, removing criminal history records from NCIC as political favors


In 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor, Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) attempted to have the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime for exposing her crimes against the City of Gold Bar taxpayers ( theft in excess of $200,000.00). Ms. Hill Berg was sleeping with several married men inside Snohomish County government, including but not limited to Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.

Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and John E Pennington were stealing from Snohomish County Emergency Management and the County’s Emergency Housing Funds.  Federal money distributed to the local government via a welfare block grant.

On July 5, 2008, Gold Bar’s water employee Karl Majerle was caught red handed stealing from the City of Gold Bar, and had in fact sabotaged the City’s Wells, # 3 and 4. Why, because Ms. Hill (Berg) was informed by Gold Bar council member Dorothy Croshaw that Majerle was stealing from the City.  After Karl Majerle was caught stealing, he was fired, which he recorded via audio means, and then out of anger, he left City Hall and poured gravel down Gold Bar’s City wells # 3 and 4.  Instead of reporting the federal crimes, as acts of domestic terrorism to Gold Bar’s water system, Ms. Hill (Berg) decided the best way to handle this was to ask Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay for a favor i.e. help quash criminal charges against Majerle.

And Sean Reay did  it.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay received the criminal referral from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Terry Handleman and Deputy Jeff Ross ( Brady Cops). Sean Reay received a phone call from Snohomish County Director John E Pennington and Executive Aaron Reardon asking for his help in quashing the criminal charges as “political courtesy.”  Sean Reay called then Sheriff and both made an agreement to not prosecute Karl Majerle for sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.

Sean Reay, in an effort to make it look good, sent the Karl Majerle’s criminal complaint to his wife, Laura Twindale. Ms. Twinsdale is in charge of Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division.

Sean Reay never referred the case to the federal government as all crimes against water systems must be referred to the DOJ and FBI for investigation and/or prosecution. But instead, Sean Reay sent the criminal complaint against Gold Bar’s water employee to his wife, Laura Twinsdale. Ms. Twinsdale is only in charge of misdemeanor offenses and has no authority  to issue felony charges nor prosecute federal crimes.

We later learned that Karl Majerle and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) had entered into a bribery scheme. Why, because Karl Majerle knew what we didn’t know for five years until Snohomish County finally released a record it illegally withheld for almost 7 years now.

Simply put, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is guilty of racketeering, quashing criminal charges as political favors.  Perhaps Mr. Reay thought he and Aaron Reardon were going to the Governor’s Manson.  So sad, but along came the Gold Bar Reporter, and Aaron Reardon was ousted for stealing public monies.

As a political favor, Sean Reay helped Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal conviction and arrest records from NCIC.

Not only did Prosecutor Sean Reay assist Ms. Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal history from NCIC, he also entered into a bribery scheme with Ms. Hill Pennington (nee Berg),  to quash criminal charges after she violently assaulted a six year old child.

 

Our readers, and those Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) stole from ( City of Gold Bar taxpayers) should be happy to know that she is now frauding the federal taxpayers working as a contractor at FEMA in Emittsburg Maryland.   According to the Office of Inspector General, persons convicted of fraud are not eligible for federal employment or federal contracts of any nature.

FEMA’s Brock Long was made aware of Crystal Hill Pennington’s criminal history and has refused comment.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III, putting false criminal history records inside NCIC.  Why?  To enhance criminal sentencing if the accused is found guilty. We also have ample evidence to also document that Wallace Langbehn also falsely placed criminal history inside NCIC to retaliate against persons who exposed Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (C).

The Gold Bar Reporter was the first to expose Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (c) with its sole purpose used by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Prosecutors Office for purposes of domestic spying and siphoning over $27 Million dollars of Washington State and federal taxpayer monies.

Dawson Place uses the law firm of Anderson Hunter to funnel millions of public money just as G. Geoffrey Gibbs did with attorney Lin O’Dell inside the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam known as Whispering Pines. The scam that involved Dean Bellamy, a man murdered by Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Bellamy was threatening to expose many Judges and Commissioners involved in the guardian scam with attorneys Joseph Nappi Jr, Lin O’Dell and James Spargetis in Spokane.


Click below to how Dawson Place is nothing more than a shrill set up by Snohomish County Judges, Prosecutors and attorneys siphoning off million of public dollars.

For those of my readers who have been following the County’s malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, it’s  no  surprise that Dawson Place’s Prosecutor  Wallace Langbehn III was working inside Dawson Place when Snohomish County activist Lori Shavlik started piecing together the County Judges/Prosecutors/Attorneys sick little domestic spy ring also known now as Dawson Place.

Bigger question still remains unanswered: Where did the millions of public monies go?

 

In 2010, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell knew Lori Shavlik was getting close to exposing Dawson Place as a shrill to funnel public monies and spy on citizens.  Mark Roe and Adam Cornell needed to shut Ms. Shavlik up as she was starting to unravel Dawson Place as a shadow agency owned and operated by Snohomish County government.

Mark Roe and Adam Cornell decided the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to enlist the assistance of a known Brady Cop named David Fontenot. David Fontenot’s job was to find someone close to Ms. Shavlik to start a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Fontenot is as dirty as them, and had known all of the drug addicts, and one such drug addict Fontenot found worked inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Rebecca Bradshaw was well know to David Fontenot, because Ms. Bradshaw was a drug informant on Snohomish County’s payroll.

While at the same time Rebecca Bradshaw is on Snohomish County’s payroll, Ms Bradshaw was working in and stealing from Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon in the City of Snohomish.   Brady Cop David Fontenot knew this, and enlisted Ms. Bradshaw assistance in starting a fire behind a dryer unitinside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon.

The false trumped up criminal charges Snohomish County set into action came only after Ms. Shavlik had exposed Dawson Place for fraud, and a government shrill to steal taxpayer monies without accountability.

In 2014,  Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, known racketeering member, Franchasca Yahyavi tried Ms. Shavlik for first degree arson. Ms. Yahyavi, never disclosed that the lead detective  David Fontenot was a Brady Cop, and that the County’s main witness Rebecca Bradshaw was a paid informant.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik one juror was a highly educated Engineer who later said ” this was bullshit. There was nothing here.” Those of you who know me, know I am partial to engineers not only because my engineer is my most loved treasure, but because persons that are trained in hard sciences are critical thinkers who analysis even small pieces of evidence.

That Engineer saved Ms. Shavlik’s life by holding out for days until the Judge called it a deadlock jury.  Instead of the Prosecutors’ leaving well enough alone, Francesca Yadavvi recharged Ms. Shavlik in a second trial in February 2016.

The Gold Bar Reporter was in the audience watching as Brady Cop David Fontenot and Prosecutor Yahyavi paraded witness after witness on the stand to attest about what a bad business owner Ms. Shavlik was.  One witness named Dolly even told the jury that she was told by the Prosecutors that she would get money for her testimony.

In March 2016, 12 jurors acquitted Lori Shavlik of arson.

Early this year, Ms. Shavlik  started complaining that her insurance rates were over the roof. This prompted this question: have you looked at your criminal access searches and driving record from Washington State ?

When Lori Shavlik retrieved her driving record from the Washington State Department of Licensing she learned that Dawson Place Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III had entered false information into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, falsely claiming that she had plead guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

In a nutshell, Wallace Langbehn III entered into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, via NCIC, that Ms. Shavlik had plead guilty to giving alcohol to minors. False.

11D05276_Page_311D05276_Page_411D05276_Page_2

Wallace Langbehn III falsely entered a conviction record into Ms. Shavlik’s NCIC records and he did so while assigned to Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit 501 (3) (c). A shrill money laundering company to further the efforts of Dawson Place and its racketeering members. Mainly Snohomish County Prosecutors and Judges and two  mobsters and attorneys G. Geoffrey Gibbs and Michael Kenyon.

Does this fit the definition of racketeering crimes?

Source: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2006/rpt/2006-R-0484.htm

 

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (18 USC §§ 1961-1968) prohibits (1) acquiring, establishing, or operating an enterprise with illegally derived income, (2) acquiring or maintaining an interest in or control of an enterprise through illegal activity, and (3) using an enterprise to commit illegal acts (Extortion, Blackmail, Etc., 31A Am Jur 2d).

RICO defines “racketeering activity” as a long list of state and federal crimes. The federal crimes include bribery, various fraud offenses, gambling offenses, money laundering, a number of financial and economic crimes, obstructing justice or a criminal investigation, murder for hire, and sexual exploitation of children. The state crimes include murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, and drug crimes.

It defines a “pattern of racketeering activity” as at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after RICO became law and the last of which occurred within 10 years after the prior act.

“racketeering activity” means committing, attempting to commit, conspiring to commit, or intentionally aiding, soliciting, coercing, or intimidating another person to commit a specified list of felonies. These felonies include gambling activities, extortion, drug offenses, weapons offenses, murder, assault, prostitution, hazardous waste violations, securities violations, coercion, money laundering, arson, bribery, and forgery

“Pattern of racketeering activity” means engaging in at least two incidents of racketeering activity that (1) have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission or otherwise are interrelated by distinguished characteristics; (2) are not isolated incidents; (3) include at least one incident that occurred after October 1, 1982; and (4) occurred within five years of a prior incident of racketeering activity (CGS § 53-394(e)).

“Collusion” is not defined in either RICO, although the word “collusion” is used in a number of state contracting statutes. The Blacks Law Dictionary definition of “collusion” includes a “secret combination, conspiracy, or concert of action between two or more persons for fraudulent or deceitful purpose.” This type of conduct would appear to be covered by RICO 


 

Wallace Langbehn III, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Mike Kenyon, Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, and Snohomish County Judges were contacted and all declined comment.

“License to steal” with the assistance of the Washington State Bar and Washington State Guardian Board

What happens when a convicted killer teams up with a criminal with a law license? 

img003240_Page_01

Not only was WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’ Dell found guilty of stealing from her clients using a convicted killer to harass them inside their homes, the duo also created several companies to launder clients’ trust monies.

Guardianship Letter accepting complaints billing 2

Instead of investigating complaints filed against attorney Lin O’Dell for embezzlement, the Washington State Bar Association, Washington Attorney General’s Office, Washington State Guardian Board, and at least two Washington State’s Governors’ turned a blind eye, thus allowing Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech’s rein of terror and racketeering crimes against Washington elderly residents to continued for over twenty years with no accountability.

Why is simple: the Washington State Bar Association refused to investigate complaints filed against Lin O’Dell. Washington State Bar Disciplinary Council Linda Eide, Doug Ende and Julie Shankland were all guardian scammers themselves while in private practice.

The Gold Bar Reporter smells a pay off system….

No accountability until Lin O’Dell decided to violate the Gold Bar Reporter’s civil rights, fabricate evidence, lie on official Washington State Bar filings, and after being caught accepting bribes from John E Pennington ( man fired from Snohomish County Emergency Management after he was caught stalking, criminally harassing Gold Bar Reporter right from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management offices).  Mark Plivilech who lives in Spokane set up a USPS Box # 70 in Duvall Washington for purposes of picking up money drops from the Penningtons’ to fix a case against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports on corruption.

What should for our readers is that attorney Lin O’Dell was handpicked as a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer by her co-conspirator and business associate attorney Joseph Nappi Jr ( another attorney associated with the Washington State Bar and Guardian Scam in Spokane County). Joseph Nappi Jr has his own “little RICO” scam of depleting O’Dell’s clients trust accounts after O’Dell’s clients die.

John E. Pennington, Lin O’Dell, Mark Plivilech, and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) are being sued for racketeering, and soon forgery and fraud.

Instead of prosecuting attorney Lin O’Dell for stealing, embezzling client funds, and money laundering, the Washington State Guardian Board allowed Lin O’Dell to resign, but only after she was caught stealing, perjury, and embezzling million of dollars from Ms. Fowler’s trust accounts.

Washington State Bar defining RICO, money laundering from client trust accounts, embezzling funds,  and racketeering, Washington State Bar Style 

 

Felice Congalton

Managing Disciplinary Counsel

Washington State Bar Association

1325 4th Avenue, Suite 600

Seattle, WA 98101-2539

 

Dear Felice Congalton,

 

Please consider this letter as a bar complaint against Lin O’Dell, Richard Wallace, Mary Cusack, Bruce Pruitt–Hamm, Jessica Bodey, and Karen Vache’ in setting up a TEDRA agreement and an initial guardianship around ten years ago.

Richard Wallace and Mary Cusack did not have me sign conflict statements even though Cusack supposedly represented my interests during the formation of the Tedra agreement, and Richard Wallace represented by mother during the signing of the second Codicil and second amendment to the Norma Shanks living trust. These were both potential and actual conflicts of interest.    Bruce Pruitt-Hamm, Jessica Bodey, and Karen Vache failed to provide any kind of signed statements for conflicts of interests that were both potential and actual in which they represented me, guardianships, trusts that contained assets intended for me.

Lin O’Dell not only did not present or discuss the conflicts of interest, she failed to prepare any kind of acceptable accounting for over $2 million dollars of the assets of the guardianship and an Idaho trust which she controlled.

This is letter is also a bar complaint against Lin O’Dell for various actions taken by her since then. Through lax accounting, misrepresentations to the court, ethical violations, and outright conversion, it appears that my inheritance has been reduced well in excess of one million dollars.

As a result of her unethical activity, Lin O’Dell has been sanctioned by the Washington State Guardianship Board and the Stevens County Superior Court.  The findings of the Stevens County Court were upheld in the Washington Court of Appeals.  For the past 10 years I have suffered substantial consequences of the actions these attorneys as well as an Idaho attorney named Paula Massey, who represented my deceased brother, Rex Shanks. They first transferred control of the estate away from my mother and I to my brother, Rex who was an alcoholic, and convicted felon.

As can be seen from the following narrative, I have been kept in the dark repeatedly and refused access to documents that would allow me to find out whether I received the portion of the estate to which I was entitled. As the following narrative demonstrates, hundreds of thousands of dollars of assets were spent in a highly questionable fashion without any documentation or balance sheets being produced. In addition, a TEDRA agreement was illegally formed based upon trust documents that were no longer valid and as a result, I was apparently cheated out of over $800,000 in assets.

In the past, I attempted to file bar complaints against Lin O’Dell but those complaints were of a limited nature, because I could not obtain documents which would explain the questionable activities of Lin O’Dell.  The WSBA has refused to perform even a minimal investigation, apparently because she had some kind of special status as a WSBA hearing officer. As a result, I have had to spend thousands of dollars, first in removing her as a guardian, then as a trustee so, she could no longer misappropriate funds that were intended to be distributed to me.

In previous litigation, Lin O’Dell has freely admitted that she refused to allow me access to records, claiming that she was “scared” because knowledge of that information would cause me some kind of unspecified harm.

The present complaint is primarily based upon recently discovered material that I had been denied access to by attorney O’Dell.  This includes information that was submitted April 5, 2016, to Stevens Court in Case No. 06-4-00094-9, that was part of an exhibit list prepared for an appeal that was pending in the third division Case No. 32979-8.  Other recently discovered material had been disclosed to my Idaho Attorneys Michaelina Murphy and Carla Ranum who successfully petitioned the Idaho Courts, Case No. CV-08-0006827 to have Lin O’Dell removed as trustee.  Also included as new are documents from an old divorce file I discovered two years ago that contained the billing records for Bruce Pruitt-Hamm.

You may also find references in this complaint to other misconduct that was referred to in previous bar complaints.  I did this because even though they may have been mentioned before, they were portrayed as isolated incidents, where they are now shown as part of a pattern of misconduct. Incredibly, even after being removed as guardian, trustee, and sanctioned, Lin O’Dell still refuses to provide any kind of accounting/distribution information that would explain how millions of dollars to assets were divided between my brother Rex and I. In the past, the WSBA has assigned my complaints to a special disciplinary counsel, because she was a hearing officer.  She is no longer a hearing officer and can be seen from the following narrative, she was not a hearing officer for most of the periods of time in question, so I request that this grievance not be treated as a grievance against a hearing officer, but as a grievance against an attorney.

Issue 1, Failure to supply conflict statements by Bruce Pruit-Hamm, Lin O’Dell, Jessica Bodey, Karen Vache during the creation of guardianship and the period of time leading up to my mother’s death in 2011.

Originally, I was routinely named as my mother’s power of attorney, controlling her multimillion dollar estate. In addition, I was separately awarded a home in Whitefish Montana that is now valued at over $800,000. Then, through a series of transactions, control of this estate was transferred to my brother Rex, who had both an alcohol and drug problem, and was a convicted felon who had been imprisoned 6 months in Arizona.

On August 8, 2006, I went to Bruce Pruit-Hamm for the purpose of obtaining a divorce from my husband Mark Fowler.  On August 10, 2006, he was already contacting an Idaho attorney Paula Massey, who was an Idaho attorney for my brother Rex Shank. He was also in contact with the Wytychak Elder Law Firm, which was later paid over $16,000 for managing an Idaho trust in my name.

On August 29, 2006, my brother Rex petitioned the Idaho court, through Paula Massey, to have him made guardian of the estate of my mother. I do not believe the fact he did this after his attorney had discussions with my attorney is a coincidence. Rex was appointed as a temporary guardian only on September 5, 2007 in Idaho Case No. CV-06-6619 and immediately paid $1,152.40 for legal services rendered by Bruce Pruit-Hamm in my divorce case.  There was never any discussion nor a conflict statement signed concerning the actual conflict of interest of my mother’s guardianship being used to pay this fee.  Also, there was no discussion about how Rex Shank could make such a payment, when his temporary letters explicitly stated his powers:  “allowed only such access to alleged ward’s assets as is necessary to provide for the alleged Ward’s necessities of Life.” (Emphasis added).

Shortly thereafter, on October 1, 2006, without explaining to me the reason and possible implications and without obtaining a conflict waiver, Pruitt-Hamm petitioned the court to have me put in a guardianship. Although he claims he did this as an “officer of the court”, there was no written explanation of the actual or potential conflict of interest this posed for my interests, especially that of putting my brother in control of my mother’s finances instead of me.  Soon, the court had appointed Karen Vache’ as a GAL who filed a new guardianship action, where Jessica Bodey was appointed as GAL.  Then Bodey and Vache’ recommended that Lin O’Dell be appointed.

At first I was suspicious of the fact that all three of these attorneys were working together in the same office and voiced those concerns to Bodey about this. Bodey claimed that this was no cause for concern because there was no conflict just because three attorneys knew of each other and worked at the same location.

What was not explained to me was that Lin O’Dell and Karen Vache were business partners in a law firm called “Advance Mediation Service, LLC” and would therefore share profits. As far as I remember, this was not disclosed to the court either. This raises the issue as to whether the unnecessary second guardianship action was instituted to hide the conflict that existed between Vache’ and O’Dell.

By January of 2007, I had changed my mind and decided to try and save my marriage. I also made it clear that I did not agree with assessment by Pamela Ridgway, a psychologist who prepared a report recommending guardianship.

In preparing her report to the court, GAL Bodey confirmed that she had consulted other doctors before making her recommendation including Dr. Bot and doctors who had evaluated me for possible social security benefits.  What she did not disclose to the court is that these three other doctors did not recommend a guardianship.

In March of 2007, I reluctantly agreed to the creation of a guardianship, against the recommendation of my counsel at the time, because of assurances by all the other attorneys, Pruitt-Hamm, O’Dell, Vache’, and Bodey, that  the guardianship was designed to help me manage my assets and obtain my fair share of the estate.

Had I been aware of the full nature of the entangling conflicts of interests and alliances that had been formed to put control of the estate in the hands of my convicted felon, alcoholic brother, I would have never gone along with it.

At some point in time after Lin O’Dell became guardian, it was decided to reinstitute the divorce proceedings and obtain another no-contact order against my ex-husband, Mark Fowler.

After my mother died, Lin O’Dell became trustee of the trust created to receive my inheritance. Lin O’Dell was also a Washington limited guardian of my estate as well as a limited guardian of my person. The creation of these legal entities was made because I was easily manipulated financially and therefore she had a fiduciary duty to preserve my portion of the estate and protect my interests.  There was no discussion of there being a potential conflict of interest or actual conflict of interest of representing both me in the divorce, and representing the Washington guardianship and the Idaho trust, nor were any conflict statements signed. Eventually, it was the failure to adequately deal with these conflicts of interest that led to the problems that followed.

Issue #2: Failure to supply conflict statements by Wallace, Cusack, and O’Dell during the Illegal formation of a TEDRA agreement and a RICO enterprise.

One of the first orders of business was for the attorneys to recommend to me the formation of a TEDRA agreement.  This again was portrayed to me as something that was done to help me and help manage my estate. What was not told to me was that this agreement was flawed from the very beginning as it had a fundamental conflict of interest that was not explained to me, and that it was based upon a will and trust agreement that were no longer valid. First, it was arranged that I would be represented by Mary Cusack, but I was not told that she was law partners with Richard Wallace, who represented my mother during the drafting of the second codicil and the second amendment to the Norma Shanks Living trust. Since Wallace would be expected to represent my mother’s interest, this represented a potential conflict of interest and should have had a conflict statement according to In re Marshall 160 Wn.2d 317.

In addition, according to the first amendment to the trust and the first codicil, I was to be favored over my brother in the fact that I would inherit my mother’s home in Whitefish, Montana. In 2015, this home was assessed at over $800,000. Since I was favored, it could have been expected that a makeup for this would appear in the second codicil to the will and the second amendment to the trust.  In addition, there is some evidence in the guardianship record that this second trust was irrevocable.  In her first annual report to the court she reported that the trust was irrevocable, which had to have meant she saw the second amended trust and second codicil because the first amended trust, was not irrevocable, under its own plain language.  That meant the second amended trust, could not be replaced by anything, let alone a TEDRA agreement that was controlled by my alcoholic ex-con brother.

Since Richard Wallace represented my mother, his failure to disclose the conflict of interest represents an actual conflict of interest with respect to his law partner, because by representing the wishes of my mother, it conflicted with my interests irrespective of whether she intended to reduce my role in the estate or not. Thus Wallace and Cusack were in violation of the rules of professional conduct under the RPC as written, or under the more restrictive terms of Marshall.

It was clear, that prior to the TEDRA agreement in 2008, I was favored over my brother.  I had been named power of attorney, and my ex-husband James Evans was personal representative for the first codicil of my mother’s will. Thus, in the second codicil and second trust agreement, my superior interest would have been reflected.   Since the TEDRA agreement was signed, Richard Wallace has refused to release the second amended trust agreement and the second codicil even though he has released all the other wills and trust agreements. Likewise with O’Dell, who was appointed by the courts to protect my interests, allegedly because I was easily manipulated by men (which would include of course, my brother.) Wallace claimed he lost them… and O’Dell also refused to produce them even though she obviously saw them.  Since these documents should have been the ones the Tedra agreement replaced, the fact that both attorneys refuse to produce them is inexcusable especially since the second trust was irrevocable.  If they continue to refuse to produce these documents, the bar should consider it spoliation, and read all inferences against both of them.

Issue #3:  Conversion of horses, paintings, dogs and other items.

This issue involves my ownership of some horses and other items.  There apparently were no papers signed, but I can prove ownership of the horses at that time through the testimony of the person I purchased them from.  In August, 2010, Jimmy Smith who worked for Lin O’Dell, talked me into having two horses “wintered” by some farm in Spokane Valley. I was skeptical of the need for it because I had already wintered the horses myself the previous year.  On October 20, 2010, I checked into a local hospital for severe depression.  At that time two of my dogs had escaped, but the rest were still in the pen. After I wanted to go home, Jimmy Smith and a counselor were insistent on me staying longer, and in return for me staying longer, Jimmy Smith agreed to go take care of the dogs and safeguard my belongings. Some of these included some valuable paintings that were painted by Norma Shank and given to me. Instead of safeguarding the dogs, they were let free, and Smith hired a neighbor to look for them. However, instead of putting me in contact with the man who was supposed to retrieve them, he refused to give the phone number, and as a result, the man was unable to retrieve them. Later when I got out for a brief period, I was able to retrieve one who was a wolf. However, when I was sent to another rehab center, Lin O’Dell gave the wolf away to an outfit that was supposedly a wolf sanctuary. When I returned to my house, it had been ransacked and all the valuable paintings were missing. Later, Jimmy Smith tried to get me to sign papers to give up legal title of the horses. When I refused, I never got an explanation as to what happened to the horses. In later conversations with other people in the town, they said they were told by Lin O’Dell to shoot the dogs if they came across them. I never saw the horses, dogs, paintings ever since. When I asked about the horses, I was told to forget about it as it is “ancient history”.  I understand there is no statute of limitations on a bar complaint.

In her response to the court, (see attached exhibit) she disclaims any responsibility, claiming that the horses were “rescued”, but does not say by who, or under what authority they were transferred to a new owner.  She claims that the property was separate property, which would be consistent with her having Jimmy Smith asking for a release that was never given.  From her report, she obviously knows what happened to the horses, but does not say who or how they were transferred.   She does not explain why the horses were “rescued”, when Jimmy Smith had been tasked with wintering them. When called to task over the rest of the stolen property by the Stevens County Superior Court, she had the audacity to claim that it was my fault that everything was stolen, even though she was paying caregivers such as Jimmy Smith to take care of it, while being paid in amounts that the court characterized as highly excessive.

Issue #4: Improper accounting and conversion of automobile.

On July 12, 2011, a check was written by Rex Shank, from Wells Fargo account No. 426340535, (my deceased mother’s guardianship account), for $7,432 to Paula Fowler. This check was deposited into USB7452 which is my guardianship account that is under Lin O’Dell control. Three days later, on July 15, 2011, Lin O’Dell wrote a check from my guardianship account USB7452, ck #2273   for $7000 To “Bomben Family Trust” which Lin O’Dell endorsed as “Lin O’Dell Trustee”.  I have attached a copy of that check.

I have been in communication with Mr. Craig Bomben, son of Angelo Bomben, about this check which involves an apparent conflict of interest between two trusts that are run by Lin O’Dell.  Lin O’Dell, had been appointed guardian for Craig’s father, Angelo Bomben, on or about July 20, 2010 in case No.10-4-00009-9. Around the end of June 2011, his family discovered money missing from the family trust and traced the shortfall to his guardian, Lin O’Dell.

According to Craig Bomben, the family demanded Lin O’Dell pay back the $7,000 which they believe she had stolen or they were going to the police and file charges and have her disbarred.  According to Craig, the Bomben family gave Lin O’Dell 10 days to have the money put back into the account.

There were no receipts, and no invoices for this transaction stating what it was for. There was no conflict statement in writing, signed by either members of the Bomben family trust or by me showing approval of a transaction in spite of a conflict of interest or possible conflict of interest in the future between the two trusts. While at one point, O’Dell told Joseph Valente, a Stevens County court appointed investigator, the check was for payment of a car, there was no appraisals showing who owned the car and what it was appraised at.

I have never signed a waiver for the conflict of interest between the two guardianship cases and was never counseled as to the advisability of seeking advice from another counsel.

In July of 2013, DMV records show the registered owners were the Guardianship of Paula Fowler and the Guardianship of Ricky Ott.  It was registered that way until March of 2016.  I was never told that I co-owned the car with the Guardianship of Ricky Ray Ott or why it was registered that way. I never signed a conflict statement advising me of the co-ownership with Ricky Ray Ott.

Lin O’Dell violated RCW 11.92.185 which deals with concealed or embezzled property.  She apparently stole from one guardianship account (Angelo Bomben), and when caught, converted funds from my guardianship account to repay the “Bomben Family Trust”. In doing so, Lin O’Dell violated RCW 11.92.040(b): “A guardian must provide identification of all income sources. A guardian must list all expenditures made during the accounting period by categories.” Lin O’Dell did not identify the $7,432 check from my deceased mother’s guardianship account. Lin O’Dell did not list the disbursement of $7,000 to the “Bomben Family Trust”, her former client.

Lin O’Dell also violated the Rules of Professional Conduct. According to RPC 1.7:

(a)  Except as provided in paragraph (b), a lawyer shall not represent a client if the representation involves

a concurrent conflict of interest. A concurrent conflict of interest exists if:

    (1)  the representation of one client will be directly adverse to another client; or

    (2)  there is a significant risk that the representation of one or more clients will be materially limited

by the lawyer’s responsibilities to another client, a former client or a third person or by a personal interest of the lawyer.

(b)  Notwithstanding the existence of a concurrent conflict of interest under paragraph (a), a lawyer may represent a client if:

    (1)  the lawyer reasonably believes that the lawyer will be able to provide competent and diligent representation to each affected client;

    (2)  the representation is not prohibited by law;

    (3)  the representation does not involve the assertion of a claim by one client against another client represented by the lawyer in the same litigation or other proceeding before a tribunal; and

    (4)  each affected client gives informed consent, confirmed in writing (following authorization from the other client to make any required disclosures).

According to RPC 1.8: (Conflict of Interest; Specific Rules)

 

(a)  A lawyer shall not enter into a business transaction with a client or knowingly acquire an ownership, possessory, security or other pecuniary interest adverse to a client unless: (1) the transaction and terms on which the lawyer acquires the interest are fair and reasonable to the client and are fully disclosed and transmitted in writing in a manner that can be reasonably understood by the client; (2) the client is advised in writing of the desirability of seeking and is given a reasonable opportunity to seek the advice of an independent lawyer on the transaction; and (3) the client gives informed consent, in a writing signed by the client, to the essential terms of the transaction and the lawyer’s role in the transaction, including whether the lawyer is representing the client in the transaction.

(b)  A lawyer shall not use information relating to representation of a client to the disadvantage of the client unless the client gives informed consent, expect as permitted or required by these Rules.

(c)  A lawyer shall not solicit any substantial gift from a client, including a testamentary gift, or prepare on behalf of the client an instrument giving the lawyer or a person related to the lawyer any substantial gift unless the lawyer or other recipient of the gift is related to the client. For purposes of this paragraph, related persons include spouse, child, grandchild, parent, grandparent or other relative or individual with who the lawyer or the client maintains a close, familial relationship.

(g) A lawyer who represents two or more clients shall not participate in making an aggregate settlement of the claims of or against the clients, or in a criminal case an aggregated agreement as to guilty or nolo contendere pleas, unless each client gives informed consent, confirmed in writing. The lawyer’s disclosure shall include the existence and nature of all the claims or pleas involved and the participation of each person in the settlement.

(h) A lawyer shall not: (1) make an agreement prospectively limiting the lawyer’s liability to a client for malpractice unless permitted by law and the client is independently represented by a lawyer in making the agreement; or (2) settle a claim or potential claim for such liability with an unrepresented client or former client unless that person is advised in writing of the desirability of seeking and is given a reasonable opportunity to seek the advice of an independent lawyer in connection therewith.

(i) A lawyer shall not acquire a proprietary interest in the cause of action or subject matter of litigation the lawyer is conducting for a client, except that the lawyer may: (1) acquire a lien authorized by law to secure the lawyer’s fee or expenses; and (2) contract with a client for a reasonable contingent fee in a civil case.

 

The following standards of the American Bar Association Standards for   Imposing Lawyer Sanctions (“ABA Standard”) are presumptively applicable to this Case.

ABA Guideline Standard 5.1: Failure to Maintain Personal Integrity

 5.11 Disbarment is general appropriate when:

(a) a lawyer engages in serious criminal conduct, a necessary element of which includes intentional interference with the administration of Justice, false swearing, misrepresentation, fraud, extortion, misappropriation, or theft, or the sale, distribution or important of controlled substances; or the intentional killing of another; or an attempt or conspiracy or solicitation of another to commit any of these offenses; or

(b) a lawyer engages in any other intentional conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation that seriously adversely reflects on the lawyer’s fitness to practice.

ABA Guideline Standard 4.3: Failure to Avoid Conflicts of Interest           

 

4.31 Disbarment is generally appropriate when a lawyer, without the informed consent of client(s):

(a) engages in representation of a client knowing that the lawyer’s interest are adverse to the client’s with the intent to benefit the lawyer or another, and causes serious or potentially serious injury to the client;

ABA Guideline Standard 4.1: Failure to preserve the Client’s Property

 

4.11 Disbarment is generally appropriate when a lawyer knowingly converts client property and causes injury or potential injury to a client

 

When Stevens County Superior Court asked for an explanation for this transaction, there was no satisfactory response.  Eventually she was cited for the conflict of interest, but O’Dell never disclosed the improper registration or the allegations of the Bombens.  It was only after I retained a private investigator that the rest of information has come to light.

Issue #5, Retaliation and extortion for reporting improper accounting.

In March of 2013, I had written to the Stevens County Superior Court asking that Lin O’Dell be removed as guardian due her misconduct as a guardian.  I have attached a copy of the letter that I believe was the letter that triggered Stevens County Superior Court to take action.  I waited for months for Stevens County Court to do something.  On or about August 6, of that year I was at my computer and I learned for the first time that a hearing had been scheduled at the very hour I was on my computer.  I got on the phone and immediately informed the court and they decided to reschedule in September.  I later learned that Lin O’Dell was at the hearing and was supposed to have notified me of the hearing. Then, on September 14, 2013, Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivelich showed up at my house.  My ex-husband, James Evans was there, and Mark Plivelich told him personally, how much he would like to own my home—apparently, he considered the property part of  “The Trust”. Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivelich, both were confessing and bragging that they had arranged through the local Northport citizens to have my dogs killed.

Later he witnessed Lin made threats to me that she had intentions of cutting off my TEDRA funds, getting rid of my dogs, change my locks and sell my house in my absence. She was insisting that I leave the state immediately and not attend the continued hearing as a result.  She claimed that Onsight-Insight, my Idaho guardian was insisting that I leave immediately because of a probation requirement, even though earlier I had been given discretion in setting the report date.  I believe that she conspired with Onsight-Insight to prevent me from attending the hearing in retaliation for reporting her.  As will be shown later, this was an attempt to cover up double booking she was starting to engage in because my reporting of her, caught her in the midst of a fraud.

In doing so, Lin O’Dell violated RCW 9A.56.130 which is extortion in the second degree.  That statute defines extortion in the second degree as making an unlawful threat as defined in RCW 9A.04.110(28). Lin O’Dell violated RCW 9A 04 110 (28) because it defines “Threat” as to communicate, directly or indirectly the intent: (b) To cause physical damage to the property of a person other than the actor; or (j) To do any other act which is intended to harm substantially the person threatened or another with respect to his or her health, safety, business, financial condition, or personal relationships.  While the statute makes an exception for someone who reasonably believes that charges should be brought for law violations, it does not include threatening to kill the animals or selling the house.  As a result of Lin O’Dell’s threats, a hearing could not be held on her misconduct as a guardian until December 31, 2013.

The applicable ABA Guidelines Standards: is 5.1 Failure to Maintain Personal Integrity Standard 3.0: the following sanctions are generally appropriate in cases involving commission of a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects, or in cases with conduct involving dishonesty fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation. 5.11 Disbarment is generally appropriate when: (a) a lawyer engages in serious criminal conduct, a necessary element of which includes intentional interference with the administration of Justice, false swearing, misrepresentation, fraud, extortion, misappropriation, or theft; or  the sale, distribution or importation of controlled substances; or the intentional killing of another; or an attempt or conspiracy or solicitation of another to commit any of these offenses; or (b) a lawyer engages in any other intentional conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation that seriously adversely reflects on the lawyer’s fitness to practice

Issue #6. Improper accounting and record keeping.

Attached as an exhibit you will find an example of the accounting method used by Lynn O’Dell:

A March 26, 2016, e-mail from the Stevens County Superior Court confirms the type of accounting Lin O’Dell used as a certified guardian of the estate.

Lin O’Dell submitted a box full of “documents” and financial records to support her budget and accounting reports. Some documents were bundled together, nothing labeled or otherwise identified. When the Review Board was unable to match up figures from documents submitted, the Court appointed Investigator/Attorney Joseph Valente as a court appointed investigator.

Lin O’Dell violated RCW 11.92.040: Duties of a guardian or limited   guardian in general: (2) Account shall contain at least the following information:  Identification of property of the guardianship estate as of the date of the last account or, in the case of the initial account, as of the date of inventory; (b) Identification of all additional property received into the guardianship, including income by source; (c) Identification of all expenditures made during the account period by major categories; Lin O’Dell violated RPC 1.15A: Safeguarding Property (c-2): A lawyer must identify, label and appropriately safeguard any property of the clients or third persons other than funds. The lawyer must keep records of such property that identify the property, the client or third person, the date or   receipt and the location of safekeeping. (Safe-Keeping a Box)

Issue #7 Improper Accounting, possible conversion, lack of candor to the court.

These violations are based on the following events: On November 21, 2013, Judge Monasmith signed an “Order to Show Cause” calling for Joseph Valente to investigate possible guardianship violations in my case.  On the basis of this investigation, Lin O’Dell was cited for 13 violations.  According to a statement from Joseph Valente report: “Up until Judge Monasmith   had “Order To Show Cause”, Lin O’Dell has done whatever she wanted without any regard to the authority of the Court.”

Within days, December 12, 2013 Lin O’Dell submitted “Amended” yearly accountings. Through recently discovered accounting records, submitted April 5, 2016 (SUB127), the Stevens County Court Clerk organized the files and records and prepared Exhibit List for the Court of Appeals case No. 32979-8 on April 5th, 2016 (Sub 127).  I learned of these records shortly thereafter. I compared those records which bank records I independently obtained from US Bank and found out that Lin O’Dell’s amended accounting submitted into court file is misleading and not accurate.

The records from US Bank account USB7452 (guardianship account) shows the actual Income and Disbursements which are one-hundred percent different than what Lin O’Dell submitted. I have attached (3-years) to show the difference in what Lin O’Dell submitted to the courts and what the USB7452 show:   3/6/2011 to 3/5/2012 Lin O’Dell   Amended accounting: Income $0 Disbursements $99,129.76.  (I only have 9-months   March, April and May missing) USB7452 (guardianship account) 9-months:   Income $94,220.35, Disbursements $93,718.03.  3/6/2012 to 3/5/2013 Lin O’Dell   Amended accounting: Income $.35, 3/6/2012 to 3/5/2013 guardianship account   USB7452 confirms: Income $142,718.19, Disbursements $120,038.45. 3/6/2013 to 11/30/2013 Lin O’Dell Amended accounting: $0.00, Disbursements $.0.00

Guardianship account USB7452 confirms: Income $66,000.00, Disbursements   $114,402.13. Lin O’Dell violated RPC 3.3: (a) A lawyer shall not knowingly (1) make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer (4) offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. (b) The duties stated in paragraph (a) continue to the conclusion of the proceeding. (c) If the lawyer has offered material evidence and comes to know of its falsity, the lawyer shall promptly disclose this fact to the tribunal unless such disclosure is prohibited by Rule 1.6 (d) If the lawyer has offered material evidence and comes to know of its falsity and disclosure of this fact is prohibited by Rule 1.6, the lawyer shall promptly make reasonable efforts to convince the client to consent to disclosure. 

Lin O’Dell has never given me receipts or invoices for anything—-Lin O’Dell just makes statements (full of misrepresentations) and has continually refused to give me proof of where my funds have been disbursed to under her control.  I have e-mails from April 1, 2015 asking Lin O’Dell for accounting records and proof of my estate assets. Lin O’Dell has continually given the same response: “I am not going to spend additional funds for records you have already been given.”  Although I have asked many times—-To this day, Lin O’Dell has not given me supporting documents to confirm income and or disbursements when she has had total control of my money.  Yet, Lin O’Dell was paying herself thousands of dollars monthly for being a Washington limited guardian of estate and for trustee fees which the Steven County Superior Court ruled were, in many cases, highly excessive. Within days of Joseph Valente being appointed to investigate, Lin O’Dell 12/10/2013 filed a declaration on 12/10/2013:  SUB #78, (page 7   line 9-10) she admitted “I did not send Paula her financial statements because I was scared of her safety.” and (page 8 line 5-6) “As I stated in court, I did not send Paula copies of the 2012 and 2013 annual report.”

Also, according to Valente’s report, O’Dell had a double booking system of accounting making it impossible to follow the money trail.  She would enter income and assets into the trust account while simultaneously entering into the same identical information into the guardianship account, even though under Washington law they were two separate entities. The money was never withdrawn or deposited in the trust account leading the investigator to speculate that she was anticipating criticism from the court for maintaining the guardianship when it was duplicating and charging fees for work that was already being accomplished in the redundant Idaho guardianship.  Her final accounting for the guardianship account claimed that she was not charging anything in fees for the guardianship.  However, in spite of these assurances, records from the trust account show she actually paid herself $3,623.75 in guardianship fees without court approval as required.

Lin O’Dell violated RPC 4.1:   Truthfulness in Statements to Others In the course of representing a client shall not knowingly (a) Make a false statement of material fact to a third person.

The following standards of the American Bar Association Standards for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions (“ABA Standards”) are presumptively applicable to this case.

ABA Guideline Standards 6.1 False Statements, Fraud, and Misrepresentation. 6.1 is generally applicable to case involving conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice or that involves dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation to a court. Disbarment is generally appropriate when a lawyer engages in conduct intended to deceive a court or make false statement, submits a false document or improperly withholds material information and causes injury or potentially serious injury to a party. Given the damages to the system and ongoing misrepresenting the facts to the court, the presumptive standard for the attorney who misled the court is disbarment

6.11   Disbarment is generally appropriate when a lawyer, with the intent to deceive the court, makes false statement, submits a false document, or improperly withholds material information, and causes serious or potentially serious injury to a party, or causes a significant or potentially significant adverse effect on the legal proceeding

ABA Guidelines Standards 4.1 Failure to Preserve the Clients Property. Absent aggravating or mitigating circumstances, upon application of the factors set out in 3.0, the following sanctions are generally appropriate in cases involving the failure to preserve client’s property:  4.11 Disbarment is generally appropriate when a lawyer knowingly converts client property and causes injury or potential injury to a client. 

Issue #8 Violation of guardianship rules, extortion, and formation of a RICO enterprise.

EXHIBIT 3 is a September 13, 2016 the CPG Board Agreement regarding discipline and stipulated findings against Lin O’Dell.  Lin O’Dell was cited on twelve violations of the Standard of Practice Regulations: 401.1, 401.3, 401.5, 404.1, 404.3, 404.4, 409.1, 411.1, 411.3,—former SOP 401.15, 401.16,  RCW 11.92.043 (3), and disciplinary regulation 514.4.  This, report revealed new information never disclosed to the WSBA:  Lin O’Dell admitted Mark Plivelich was her husband and used him to perform work on my case.

Mark Plivelich is a felon, having been convicted of First Degree Manslaughter. As seen above, Lin O’Dell has used Mark Plivelich services and paid him as a care-manger to be her enforcer to intimidate and make threats to her clients. I was and currently still am afraid of Lin O’Dell’s and Mark Plivelich’s threats. Spokane County property records confirm: Lin O’Dell was guardian for another client, Harry Highland, she purchased it for $15,000 when it had been assessed at $240,000 is currently living in her past clients home in Cheney, WA.  I have been afraid, because of Mark Plivelich’s and Lin O’Dell’s threats, that she would do the same to me.

Issue #9: Improper accounting and conversion of assets prior to and during probate of Norma Shanks.

I have never been given an inventory list of assets my mother had at time of death, which included:  I have the original copy of my mother’s life insurance, whose cash value on January 23, 2002 was $190,471.24.  There was another life insurance policy that was cashed out in 2009, while my mother was under guardianship. I have never been shown the amount of disbursement and to what account the life insurance was deposited.

My mother’s house in Post Falls was sold, December 8, 2011 for $106,250.00.  When asked about the proceeds I was told there were so many deductions that I may have gotten between $7,500 and 10,000—never given any proof—-just Lin O’Dell making a statement never supported by any evidence.

My mother had millions in stocks and bonds. Within the last few weeks through my Idaho attorneys I have discovered several bank transactions at the time of Norma Shank death (2 out of 9 bank accounts) my attorneys have discovered 103K missing that should have been deposited into my account upon death of my mother—Lin O’Dell explanation—-There was a loss in the market value – no supporting evidence— just Lin O’Dell making a statement.

I have the Idaho Guardianship/Conservatorship accounting from Norma Shank Case No. CV-06- 6619, which yearly I was receiving gifts from Norma Shank Trust, being deposited directly into either Lin O’Dell personal account or USB7452 guardianship account much of it after the letters of guardianship had expired and had not been renewed.

Issue #10 – Commingling funds from client trust accounts to personal account of attorney

According to guardianship accounting 3/2007 to 3/2008) which was filed with the court on March 21, 1008, on page 4, Lin O’Dell made a statement “I deposited the entire yearly trust deposit into my account because Paula was calling me daily wanting more money.” (Emphasis added). Violated RPC 1.15 (c) A lawyer must hold property of clients and third persons separate from the lawyer’s own property. 

Issue #11 – Improper accounting prior to probate, conversion, conspiracy, formation of RICO enterprise, bribery.

I have requested from Lin O’Dell confirmation for payment $250,000 Rex Shank had borrowed from our mother, Norma Shank to purchase one-half of the Hunters Restaurant in Post Falls, this transaction was done just months before he filed for guardianship/conservatorship of our mother, Norma Shank, with a estate worth millions.  Lin O’Dell has refused to furnish me with any financial documents regarding the payment status of the loan Rex Shank had between my mother, Norma Shank and myself.

As to the $250,000 lent to my brother, after being given only $1000 of the payments that were promised, there was never any explanation why the payment stopped or what happened to the other $3000 per month he was supposed to have been paying.

Lin O’Dell now claims she has no records because Rex controlled the estate.  She also gives the same excuse for the failure to account for the life insurance policies. However, she is a Washington practicing attorney who established a guardianship specifically because I was easily manipulated by men, which presumably would include my brother Rex. At a minimum she should have made inquiries and obtained records to show I was not being taken advantage of.  Her failure to produce these records is inexcusable, and, like before, the WSBA should consider the refusal to turn these records over as spoliation.

 

Issue #12 – Refusal to turn over records.

E-mails confirm I have asked Lin O’Dell for years to sign a release authorization directing Les Anderson, CPA, Post Falls, Idaho to release financial records.  Mr. Anderson was my Mother’s CPA for years and through her death.  These documents would prove the assets my mother held at the time of her death.  Lin O’Dell has refused usually claiming she has no authority to control Mr. Anderson because Rex was conservator/guardian and Wells Fargo/trustee of that trust not her.  However, she is a practicing Washington attorney who had a fiduciary responsibility to preserve the estate.  She cannot have it both ways.  If she in fact did not have direct access to Anderson’s records, then why did she not use her skills as an attorney to force their release, as she had a right to preserve the estate of the guardianship?

In refusing to do so, Lin O’Dell violated RPC 1.15A:  Safeguarding Property (c- 2):   A lawyer must identify, label and appropriately safeguard any property of clients or third persons other than funds. The lawyer must keep records of such property that identify the property, the client or third person, the date of receipt and the location of safekeeping. The lawyer must preserve the records for seven years after return of the property.  (e) A lawyer must promptly provide an accounting to a client or third person after distribution of property or upon request.

Issue #13, apparent conversion of funds.

Lin O’Dell declaration SUB 78, submitted December 10, 2013 into court record case contained several false statements including, page 4 line 24-25, where O’Dell stated “Every time the (trust) disbursed money to Paula as a gift they needed to transfer equal amount to Rex Shank.” This statement is another misrepresentation to the court, showing a complete lack of candor. Idaho conservatorship accounting 10/2007 through 10/2008 listed that Rex Shank was gifted $199,427.69—-Paula Fowler gifted $24,200– As my guardian, Lin O’Dell had a duty to protect all assets—these large trust funds being disbursed were not Rex Shank funds they were my mother’s and Lin O’Dell, as guardian of estate, had a duty to look into these transactions.

On April 18, 2011 (one-month prior to Norma Shank death 5/30/2011)  Idaho Judge Clark Peterson called a Status Conference to address issues why the $73,000 gifted to  Rex Shank and $43,000 gifted was Paula Fowler from the Norma Shank Trust (without court approval).  Attorney Pamela Massey had same comment Lin O’Dell stated in her declaration.  “Rex Shank gifted yearly amounts between himself and his sister Paula Fowler.  Gifting will remain at $13,000 per person limit per year.”  Never explained was why these amounts were unequal.  Also unexplained is why the TEDRA Agreement called for Paula to receive $2000.00 per month, yet the accounting records show that Paula never received anywhere near this amount.  These gifts don’t appear equal as Lin O’Dell stated in her declaration.

Also unexplained is why Idaho Judge Clark Peterson was allowed to sit on the case, when he had received at least $5000 from my guardianship account without court approval when he represented my ex-husband Mark Fowler in criminal charges in 2008. Lin O’Dell violated RPC 3.3  (a) A lawyer shall  not:  (1) make a false statement of fact or law to a or fail to correct a false  statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer;

Recently discovered accounting records submitted to Stevens Court, by Lin O’Dell in an unorganized box. The court clerk attempted to organize the box. Exhibits submitted for the Court of Appeals use shows several unexplained transactions:

8/31/2012 ATM SAVING WITHDRAWAL $ 8,649.37,

11/14/2012 ATM SAVING WITHDRAWALS, $2604.25

12/31/2012 ATM WITHDRAWAL   1,177.56

Total of $12,431.56 CASH taken by Lin O’Dell No-Receipts or Invoices.

USB7452 guardianship account confirmed:  2/6/2012 Customer Withdrawal $1,000,

2/21/2012 ck#2405 CASH $500,

9/13/2013 Customer Withdrawal $500.  This has all the appearances of unlawful conversion of property and if so, Lin O’Dell violated RCW 11.92.185:  Concealed or Embezzled property

Issue #15 – Misrepresentations as to the scope of her authority.

Lin O’Dell has continued to make misrepresentations to the courts.   July 26, 2016 letter from Lin O’Dell Attorney Katherine Coyle confirms, Lin O’Dell is telling my Attorney to correct the TEDRA document to show Lin O’Dell was appointed Full Guardian of the Estate.  When my attorney requested the order of Lin O’Dell appointment of full Guardian of Estate—-Lin O’Dell changed Attorneys. A copy of Appeal No. 32979-8-lll is attached resulting in Lin O’Dell losing her appeal against myself and attorney Joseph Valente.

In this regard, O’Dell has been joined in this misrepresentation by Cusack, who likewise made the misrepresentation to Washington courts that O’Dell was a full instead of limited guardian.  Please consider this as part of the bar complaint against her.

One of the things O’Dell was cited for in the Stevens County action was for continually misrepresenting the scope of her guardianship to others, including the court, and misusing her limited authority to take actions that exceeded her authority.  Incredibly, even after being sanctioned by the court and losing on the appeal, she continues to misrepresent the scope of her authority, so she can again perform a fraud on the court.

Issue #16 – Failure to supervise and conduct background checks for her staff:

Lin O’Dell violated RPC 5.3:

With respect to a non-lawyer employed or retained by or associated with a lawyer: (a) a partner, and a lawyer who individually or together with other lawyers possesses comparable managerial authority in a law firm shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that the firm has effect measures giving reasonable assurance that the person’s conduct is compatible with the professional obligations of the lawyer; Lin O’Dell on 10/18/2013 signed a blank guardianship check—-gave it to her felon husband—top of check has Mark Plivelich driver’s license number, PLIVEMD475LB, ex 6/2/2017.

Lin O’Dell, an attorney, giving a blank check from my guardianship account is not the conduct that is compatible with the professional obligations of a lawyer.  Lin O’Dell has violated RPC 5.3 (b) a lawyer having direct supervisory authority over the non-lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that the persons conduct is compatible with the professional obligations of the lawyer; and (c) a lawyer shall be responsible for conduct of such a person that would be a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct if engaged in by a lawyer if: (1) the lawyer orders or, with the knowledge of the specific conduct, ratifies the conduct involved; or (b) a lawyer having direct supervisory authority over the non-lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that the persons conduct is compatible with the professional obligations of the lawyer; and (c) a lawyer shall be responsible for conduct of such a person that would be a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct if engaged in by a lawyer if: (1) the lawyer orders or, with the knowledge of the specific conduct, ratifies the conduct involved; or (2) the lawyer is a partner or has comparable managerial authority in the law firm in which the person is employed, or has direct supervisory authority over the person, and knows   of the conduct at a time when its consequences can be avoided or mitigated but fails to take reasonable remedial action.

 

With regard to her husband, Lin O’Dell violated RPC 4.1 Truthfulness in Statements to Others:  In the course of representing a client, a lawyer shall not knowingly (a) make a false statement of material fact or law to a third person; Lin O’Dell made a statement in the CPG Discipline and Stipulated Finding, she had employed Mark Plivelich for about a year.

The Guardianship account, USB7452 confirmed she had paid Mark Plivelich or his business starting 7/15/2011 through  10/18/2013 this appears to be 2-years and 3-months.

Checks from my USB7452 guardianship account, written by Lin O’Dell to “Felon”  Mark Plivelich and “Complete Estate Services include: Mark Plivelich   7/15/2011 $135.04, Mark Plivelich  5/19/2012  $885.96,   “Complete EstateServices” 7/1/2012 82.22,    “Complete EstateServices”  7/12/2012  115.00  “Complete Estate Services” 7/30/2012 “Complete Estate Services” $312.75,   “Complete Estate Services” 4/19/2013 $1,443.15, 10/18/2013  blank check written by Lin O’Dell /Mark Plivelich driver’s License top of check $107.02

I was never made aware of the fact that Mark Plivelich was her husband, nor that she had formed a partnership with her husband to form Complete Estate services. I was never informed of his felony conviction for manslaughter.

When questioned by the guardianship board on her hiring of her husband which was forbidden under Washington law because of his felony conviction, she simply stated that because the conviction was over 30 years old, she thought it didn’t count.

Yet court records confirmed that her husband was convicted for shooting a friend in the head at point blank range with his gun.  He was only convicted of manslaughter because he claimed to the court at the time he was drunk and didn’t know what he was doing. As stated above, O’Dell uses her husband as an enforcer for her enterprise, so his conviction is highly relevant, no matter how long ago it happened.

The following standards of the American Bar Association Standards for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions (“ABA Standards”) are presumptively applicable to this case

ABA Guidelines Standards:   5.1 Failure to Maintain Personal Integrity                5.1 Standard 3.0, the following sanctions are generally appropriate in cases involving commission of a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects, or in cases with conduct involving dishonesty fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation. 5.11 Disbarment is generally appropriate when: (a) a lawyer engages in serious criminal conduct, a necessary element of which includes intentional interference with the administration of Justice, false swearing, misrepresentation, fraud, extortion, misappropriation, or theft; or  the sale, distribution or importation of controlled substances; or the intentional killing of another; or an attempt or conspiracy or solicitation of another to commit any of these offenses; or (b) a lawyer engages in any other intentional conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation that seriously adversely reflects on the lawyer’s fitness to practice.

Issue 17  Lin O’Dell NEVER filed a petition to present accounting receipts, investments, expenditures before closing Guardian of Estate.

According to RCW 11.92.053:

Settlement of estate upon termination.

Within ninety days, unless the court orders a different deadline for good cause, after the termination of a guardianship for any reason, the guardian or limited guardian of the estate shall petition the court for an order settling his or her account as filed in accordance with RCW 11.92.040(2) with regard to any receipts, expenditures, and investments made and acts done by the guardian to the date of the termination. Upon the filing of the petition, the court shall set a date for the hearing of the petition after notice has been given in accordance with RCW 11.88.040. Any person interested may file objections to the petition or may appear at the time and place fixed for the hearing thereof and present his or her objections thereto. The court may take such testimony as it deems proper or necessary to determine whether an order settling the account should be issued and the transactions of the guardian be approved, and the court may appoint a guardian ad litem to review the report.

At the hearing on the petition of the guardian or limited guardian, if the court is satisfied that the actions of the guardian or limited guardian have been proper, and that the guardian has in all respects discharged his or her trust with relation to the receipts, expenditures, investments, and acts, then, in such event, the court shall enter an order approving the account, and the order shall be final and binding upon the incapacitated person, subject only to the right of appeal as upon a final order. However, within one year after the incompetent attains his or her majority any such account may be challenged by the incapacitated person on the ground of fraud  Conclusion.

On the basis of the above charges, I am requesting that the WSBA investigate and charge Lin O’Dell for the above ethical violations and recommend disbarment with restitution.

 

 


 

Gold Bar Reporter’s Commentary


The Washington State Bar’s turning a blind eye to thief and attorney Lin O’Dell’s criminal conduct as outlined below illustrates just how far the corruption in Washington State’s Bar Association has reached, extending up through our State Supreme Court  as well.

Interesting to note for my readers that the Washington State Bar President Robyn Haynes was arrested last year for theft of client funds.

FireShot-Screen-Capture-015-Board-of-Governors-Biographies-webcache_googleusercontent_com_search_qcache_gUwwyQXP36AJ_www_wsba_org_About-WSBA

The WSBA tipped off WSBA President Robyn Haynes to resign prior to criminal charges filed, resigned June 21, 2017, as the president of the Washington State Bar Association.

 

A search warrant retained evidence supporting three counts of second-degree theft based on her previous employment with the Spokane Valley law firm McNeice Wheeler and her earlier employment at Witherspoon Kelley in Spokane.

 

The Washington State Bar has yet to take a single disciplinary action against Robyn Haynes for theft.

Below is an article written about how Lin O’Dell is using a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech to harass, steal, misuse credit information, and SSA information to funnel clients trust and public monies to their personal accounts.

 


 

How Guardians from the Washington State Bar Disciplinary Officers

are given a license to steal from Washington State’s most vulnerable adults


Forward:

When lawyers steal from their clients, It’s We the taxpayers that end up paying the bill.

Attorney Lin ( Linda) O’Dell ( aka Worthington), an attorney handpicked by the Washington State Bar Association  (WSBA) Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) to hear complaints filed against lawyers by clients ( non clients should have no forum) uses a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech to intimidate vulnerable adults, while she uses WSBA influence to continue stealing and depleting elderly clients trusts.

But O’Dell doesn’t do this alone, she gets a pass from the WSBA ODC.

Once Lin O’Dell and other attorneys involved in the same conduct as stated herein deplete the clients’ trust accounts, they place the client on Medicare and/or on the Medicaid system.

Our elderly deserve to die with dignity, and without the elite few WSBA members associated with the Office of Disciplinary Council and WSBA Boards lining their pockets with the gold of others, stealing with the assistance of a few Commissioners’ and Judges, at the expense of the United States taxpayers.

We have drafted a “Brady List” of Judges, Commissioners, and attorneys we know are involved in criminal conduct as outlined herein and will be posting names soon to our “ Brady List.”

Sadly, attorney Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell is not the exception, but she is part of the Racketeering scandal exposed over the past year involving what we call the center of the rotten onion, the WSBA ODC.

Onion

The WSBA ODC is using police officers, attorneys and judges to trump up criminal charges on honest hard working citizens and attorneys who speak out against corrupt government officials, and we ( Americans) must do everything in our power to peacefully and legally stop them. Their actions of going after honest lawyers and whistleblowers who attempt to expose corrupt judges, attorneys and police officers stifles our free market economy, and as in my case, violates Sherman Antitrust laws.

We the people are the checks and balances to an honest and clean government. As a person who grew up with two activist parents, who were no parents of the year by any stretch of the truth, I was brought up to believe there is no greater sacrifice or greater good on Mother Earth then helping the sick, elderly, abused, exposing corrupt government officials, and helping the wrongfully convicted. I value the First Amendment to US Constitution as the greatest gift Thomas Jefferson’s gave to America, more valuable than a Bar license.


 

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse. Cory Booker

 

Attorney Lin O’Dell, a thief, an attorney, a nurse, and a guardian  

Washington State Bar (WSBA) Disciplinary Hearing Officer Lin (Linda) O’Dell (aka Worthington) is stealing from Washington State vulnerable adults, manly over the age of 60, and being aided by the WSBA’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) members, Scott Busby and Linda Eide, and her partner, a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech ( Spokane).

Attorney Lin O’Dell’s Linked In page:

Lin O'Dell - LinkedIn 2015-10-04 10-04-24

Attorney Lin O’ Dell brags about her days as an administrative hearing officer for the Department of Health, she worked as a nurse and is now a guardian overseeing elderly clients trust accounts.

Lin O’Dell is not licensed in Idaho, only Washington. A relevant issue discussed later.

Does being a nurse or a guardian, especially one that has never engaged in the practice of law constitute qualifications under the WSBA guidelines for hearing officers?

Simply put, no.  I ‘ve researched the WBSA rules on appointing hearings officers and discovered that in order for the WSBA member to be appointed as a hearing officer one must have been engaged in the practice of law.  Here, Ms. O’ Dell appears to be the exception to this rule, since she never practiced law.

This begs the question on who appointed an unqualified attorney to hear issues relating to violation by WSBA members?

According to the WSBA public records officer, Ms. O’Dell was handpicked by another shyster from Spokane, attorney Joseph Nappi Jr. Mr. Nappi’s investigative file and his cash only deals with clients will be discussed in another investigative blog coming soon.


Attorney Lin O’Dell, using convicted killer Mark Plivilech to intimidate elderly vulnerable clients 

Now, on its face this may not seem too bad in the scheme of things, but lets add in this bit of facts.  Lin O’Dell’s background was searched extensively, and what we yielded was that she shacked up with a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech and extensive IRS and other financial problems.  YES our readers are reading this correctly; WSBA attorney and hearing officer Lin O’Dell’s partner of choice is a convicted killer.

Plivilech

If a WSBA hearing officer having a convicted killer as her partner of choice doesn’t sound bad enough, hold onto your seats because we have some more wonderful news.

According to internal court declarations and an extensive background check our investigators ran on Mark Plivilech, Lin O’Dell acting as a guardian for elderly vulnerable adults – many bed ridden elderly Americans- listed killer Mark Plivilech as a “case manager” on twenty (22) of her elderly clients’ accounts.

Once I learned that a convicted killer was acting as a case manager on vulnerable adults accounts, I called the Washington State Attorney General’s Office asking one simple question ” Can a convicted killer serve as a case manager on vulnerable or elderly Washingtonians trust account s or as a guardian ad litem?”

The Washington State Attorney General’s Office started laughing, for which I said  ” No, I am serious.”  The phone became silent for a minute and the attorney general said ” NO, absolutely not !” very loudly.


Attorney Lin O’Dell has stolen  $3,000,000.00 + from the Shank Trust Account, and was caught forging documents

O'Dell theft 4M

Court documents show that at the time of Norma Shank’s death, The Shank Trust had almost $4,000,000.00, at the end of 2011.

Paula Fowler is from Idaho, and how and why she came into contact with a thief and attorney named Lin O’ Dell can best be described by one of her closest friends who said ” Paula went into Colville attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce, and came out with as a guardian ward. But not before Pruitt Hamm made exparte contacts with Lin O’Dell’s attorney in Idaho, Pamela Massey. Soon thereafter, Massey and O’Dell forged documents claiming that  Ms. Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, had revoked the first Shank Will written in 2000, and only after Norma Shank was diagnosed with dementia, did this new Will appear with the assistance of attorney Lin O’Dell, attorney Richard Wallace, and Idaho attorney Paula Massey.”

We reviewed the both Wills and believe all attorneys involved should be charged with criminal Racketeering as the Will’s metadata has been stripped ( to hide when and who wrote it)


Exploiting and stealing from our elderly vulnerable adults

The only living Will of Norma Shank was signed in 2000, leaving her entire estate worth well over $5,000,000.00 to Paula Fowler, with no trust. No trust until after Paula Fowler went into attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce and came as a guardian of Lin O’Dell, and only after attorney Pruitt Hamm made phone calls to an attorney from Idaho named Pamela Massey. An attorney hired by Lin O’Dell to help siphon elderly and vulnerable clients trust accounts through nursing homes in Spokane and drug rehab centers in Idaho.

Attorney Pamela Massey and Lin O’Dell were contacted for comment. As of today, both have refused.

According to attorney Pruitt Hamm’s attorney bills in the Fowler matter; no sooner did Paula Fowler leave Pruitt’s office seeking a divorce, Pruitt Hamm was on the phone with Idaho attorney Pamela Massey ( an Idaho attorney who represents Lin O’Dell).  Once Pruitt Hamm learned that Paula Fowler was worth well over $5,000,000.00, he conspired with attorney Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey to steal from a vulnerable adult.

Over the last three years, attorneys Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey have stolen over $3,000,000.00 + from Paula Fowler, but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell forging documents, and has stolen over $3,000,000.00 +, but Lin O’Dell did not act alone

Court records from Pamela Massey’s Office in Idaho confirm that Lin O’Dell depleted non-Washington resident Paula Fowler’s trust accounts ( known as a Shank Trust, Wells Fargo, Idaho) to provide ” legal fees, at legal representation.”

There’s only problem for attorney Lin O’Dell, she is not an Idaho attorney.  Our counsel said ” a non attorney cannot provide legal representation without a license.”

From records we retrieved from Stevens County Court, in December 2011, the Shank Trust had $3,900,000.00 plus dollars in the account with no forensic accounting ever given to Ms. Fowler or the Court, even though Lin O’Dell was ORDERED to provide such documents to the Court by. A court order  Ms. O’Dell continues to thumb her nose at, while she continues to steal from Ms. Fowler but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell stealing Ms. Fowler’s assets, using convicted killer to intimidate Ms. Fowler

Abusive email 2

As we correctly stated, attorney Lin O’Dell is crossing state lines, from Washington to Idaho, using her convicted killer Mark Plivilech to steal and threaten vulnerable clients.

As the alleged “trustee” Lin O’Dell is supposed to be paying Paula Fowler’s bills, housing, car, and food.

Abusive Email 4

For nearly four months in early 2014, Lin O’Dell refused to provide basic shelter for Ms. Fowler ( as the Shank Trust mandates) leaving Ms. Fowler living in a truck at a truck stop.

Imagine your parents leave you a $5,000,000.00 trust, and the alleged trustee refuses to provide you shelter, leaving you homeless, because several outstanding members of the Washington State Bar forged documents and stole millions, what would you do?

File WSBA complaints for fraud and theft?  And that’s exactly what Paula Fowler did, and who received that WSBA complaints was WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide.  Ms. Eide’s criminal conduct as exposed by attorney Robert Grunstein was exposed in his book ” Vendetta” and will be discussed in detail in another investigative blog coming soon.

Linda Eide’s criminal conduct against the Gold Bar Reporter will be discussed at length in my book ” No sunshine where the cockroaches roam” in my last chapter ( still being written) ” Reforming the Washington State Bar, taking politics out of the practice of law.”



Judge Patrick Monasmith, a man with integrity, orders court officer Joseph Valente to investigate attorney Lin O’Dell

Just to make sure our readers understand fully what’s going on here, see above. Lin O’Dell tells the Court that Paula Fowler needs a guardian because she has an abusive ex-husband who controls her, but then writes a check to attorney Clark Peterson ( now Judge Clark Peterson, Idaho),  to defend Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband in a criminal felony vulnerable adult charge filed in Idaho for abusing Paula Fowler’s ( nee Shank) mother Norma Shank.

But hold onto your seats because it’s much better – if you can believe it !

10041503 (2) 10041501 (3)

Not only did attorney Lin O’Dell write a check to Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband’s private attorney to defend against criminal felony charges for elder abuse of Ms. Fowler’s mother ( the one who started the 5 Million dollar trust for Paula Fowler also known as Shank Trust ), but Lin O’Dell uses Norma Shank’s trust account to write a $5000.00 check to attorney Clark Peterson, Idaho, and $250.00 to attorney Dick Sayre ( for a consultation, pretty harmless on Sayre’s and Peterson’s part more likely than not) to defend the man who was just charged with felony elderly abuse.

We’re not sure about our readers, but we’re just not sure how paying an Idaho attorney to defend against elder abuse of Paula Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, benefited the Norma Shank Trust.  But if our readers have any idea, please email those to us at GoldBarReporter@Comcast.net

Imagine someone steals from you and then having the court order you to pay for the defendant’s criminal defense counsel. With no surprise this is exactly what attorney Lin O’Dell did in this matter.


Lin O’Dell, a criminal with a license to steal, a stellar example in favor of reforming the WSBA

Ex-Husbands Statement

The fact that Lin O’Dell and killer Mark Plivilech were using a USPS Post Office Box in Duvall Washington to accept financial pay offs from Snohomish County’s bum who killed 43 Oso residents, John E. Pennington, and his convicted bank frauding wife Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005), is coming to a US Federal Court soon.

Attempted rape and sexual assault covered up by Snohomish County Washington, misuse of public monies

Over the last ten years, the Gold Bar Reporter has been sounding the alarms about an unqualified political appointee, Snohomish County’s Dept. of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.  Today, we have credible sources confirming beyond any shadow of a doubt that John E. Pennington has one more skill to add to his resume, attempted rape of Snohomish County’s public records officer.

 

Although John Pennington was terminated after public records reveal that he is the man responsible for the attempted rape of Snohomish County’s Dept of Emergency Management’s public records officer  ( Snohomish County misused taxpayer monies in exchange for her silence about John E. Pennington’s attempted rape which occurred inside Dept of Emergency Management).

 

Although John E. Pennington was fired from Snohomish County in January 2016, he is the man responsible for the rape of a  5 year old girl from Cowlitz County ( according to Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon who was forced into early retirement for talking with the Gold Bar Reporter about John Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl), guilty of violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council member,  a man diagnosed by King County Washington Dr. Hedrick’s as a “sociopath with no empathy for human life”, and who enjoys taking showers with a  six year old little girl.

 

Source Pennington v Pennington, Washington Court of Appeals Division One. 


As promised to my readers, once new information becomes available regarding John E. Pennington or his convicted bank frauding wife, Crystal Hill Pennington, the Gold Bar Reporter will post updates.


In 2010, Snohomish County’s political appointee to Dept of Emergency Management John E. Pennington asked county public records officer to come to his office. For the protection of the victim, we will only name her DR.  Once DR sat down for a one on one meeting John E. Pennington, he jumped up from his seat, closed and locked the door behind DR.  This was 2010.

 

In 2010, DR was making approx. $40,000 per year with simple administrative skills. According to a source close to DR, John E. Pennington did not sit down not behind his desk but in a chair adjacent to DR.  Immediately Pennington placed his hand on DR’s leg started massaging her leg stating” we are soul mates!”  DR jumped up from her seat and tried to leave Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management office but the door was locked.

 

This allowed John E. Pennington to corner DR, placing his arms firmly on each of side DR’s body, locking her inside a corner of Pennington’s county office. DR started shouting for help, forcing Pennington to release DR, sadly, not before Pennington forcibly massaged her breasts, licking her neck, and caressed the inside of legs around her vagina.  DR’s shouts for help inside Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency are believed to be the reason why Pennington’s rape amounted to attempted rape of DR.


Misuse of taxpayer monies to pay off attempted rape victim, Welcome to Snohomish County Washington 

 

So what Snohomish County did not is even more staggering.  In 2010, DR’s best friend, who was also a county worker, called then Executive Aaron Reardon informing of how John E. Pennington tried to rape her best friend DR.  Reardon’s answer to John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of DR was to pay her off.

 

In 2009 to 2010, DR went from her $40,000 year administrative position to a $55,000 year pay raise with a retro-active back pay.  DR took the pay off, and Aaron Reardon failed to report the rape of DR and misappropriated public monies to hide John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of a county worker.

 

DR used taxpayer funds to obtain a breast implant, and manipulated a higher position inside the City of Marysville as Director of Emergency Management making $135,000.

 

DR refused comment as has John E. Pennington for this article.  John Pennington took it a little further and tried to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s new reports that has been DENIED three times as a “prior restraint on free speech.”

However, our readers should be happy to know that the “lunatic on the loose” although fired from FEMA and Snohomish County is now teaching classes to our young children at Pierce College in Tacoma Washington.

 

Sexual predicators thrive on access to victims. With no surprise, John E. Pennington is also a man who loves church.

From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sherriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc?

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials


 

FALSE ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS, JOHN E. PENNINGTON’S FRAUD

UPON THE TAXPAYERS

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


VERBALLY ASSAULTING COURT OFFICERS

John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Criminal charges have been filed against John E Pennington with his court appearance this month.


Kevin ” Shorty” Hulten fails to measure up again

In February 2013, Snohomish County Executive employees Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil were caught red handed criminally cyber-stalking the Gold Bar Reporter and tampering with evidence in Block v Snohomish County et al ( U.S Federal Court).

Kevin Hulten plead guilty  and was sentenced, and soon thereafter moved to Los Gatos California. But not before he laughed at his sentencing hearing and wrote the Gold Bar Reporter ” Anne You’re not going to be able to depose me . . . the party wont let that happen.”

Kevin Hulten was referring to the Democratic Party of Washington State and corruption that runs to and through the U.S. Federal Court judges.

Kevin Hulten is married to Washington attorney Krystal Tate ( aka Krystal Hulten).  Ms. Tate was caught red handed via public email fixing a child abuse case with Snohomish County Prosecutor against a mother accused of child abuse while she was clerk to Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Michael Downes.

Ms. Tate now works for the law firm of McGrane and Schuerman, PLLC in Colville Washington. Perhaps utilizing “fixing cases to ensure criminal convictions” was a prerequisite for her job inside the estate guardian scam business of Washington State?

 

Either there’s something in the water in Snohomish County or ‘ birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine…”  I believe it’s the latter.

With no surprise to any of us who have been working on exposing massive racketeering involving the Washington State Bar Association’s lead counsel Doug Ende and Linda Eide, and a Washington State Bar hearing officer/thief Lin O’ Dell, Ms. Tate is involved in guardian estate litigation.

 


When’s a criminal always a criminal, 

Kevin ” Shorty” Hulten fails to measure up again

Hulten

Kevin Hulten, a convicted criminal and former Snohomish County Executive employee managed to use his left over political influence with the Washington State Democratic Party to land a job as an editor in the same City where his wife is an attorney, Colville Washington.

Instead of considering himself lucky to be working as a convicted criminal in Washington State where such convictions are public record, Kevin Hulten did the unthinkable in March 2017, he was caught shoplifting groceries while working as an editor for the Statesman Examiner.

www.http://www.statesmanexaminer.com/


Criminal cyber-stalker, Kevin Thomas Hulten, Statesman Examiner and Sky Valley Chronicle

Kevin ” Shorty” Hulten also operated a foe online website titled ‘ The Sky Valley Chronicle” with five Snohomish County employees, Brian Perry, Christopher Schwartzen ( former Seattle Times reporter), terminated/disgraced Dept. Of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington, and two former Mayors from Gold Bar, Crystal Hill Pennington  ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005) and Joe Beavers ( recently caught stealing and misappropriating public money from the City of Gold Bar, 2017).

On May 9, 2017, the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office filed four criminal charges against Hulten, stemming from a series of alleged thefts at the Super One Market in Colville from March 15 to 25, 2017.

Once we became aware of Mr. Hulten’s criminal charges, we contacted the Statesman-Examiner in Colville seeking comment to no avail.  What should be noted is that the Statesman Examiner failed to write a story about its star editor’s theft.

Horizon Publications, the Illinois company that owns the Statesman-Examiner, has been reviewing several articles we wrote about Mr. Hulten all week so we knew it was just a matter of time before Mr. Hulten’s criminal behavior would once again become “headline news.”

Stupid is as stupid does  

According to the Colville police department, Mr. Hulten was identified because he used a credit card to purchase a prescriptions at the store’s pharmacy.  The store’s video surveillance confirms beyond any shadow of a doubt that Hulten stole flowers leaving the store during the early morning of March 15, 2017, without paying for them.  Then on March 25, 2017, Hulten returns to the same store, fills up a grocery cart and leaves without paying.   A store manager decided enough was enough after Hulten again entered the store on March 31, 2017, cracked open a can of Red Bull Energy drink, consuming it without paying for it.  Caught on camera.

Colville police state that Hulten exhibited nervous behavior captured on camera, and pretended to rent a movie from the store’s Redbox kiosk, attempting to distract witnesses.

According to attorney Krystal Tate’s Facebook page, she and Hulten moved from Los Gatos California in March 2017.   Hulten’s Facebook page states that he began working at the Statesman-Examiner in April 2017.

Snohomish County has quite the deck of cards, and Hulten’s card has a big joker on it.

For those of you who did not know this, Hulten had previously worked as an aide to disgraced Aaron Reardon ( who is now selling insurance in Indigo California), but was forced to resign after the Gold Bar Reporter ( Anne Block who is also suing Kevin Hulten for gross 1983 – Cyber-stalking her anonymously) who resigned as Snohomish County executive amid a flurry of scandals in February 2013.

In 2016, Mr. Hulten was fined $2500.00 by the state Public Disclosure Commission for using his work computer to criminally harass any one who investigated Reardon’s criminal conduct.  Because of Hulten’s on the records Washington State Public Disclosure IRS and Washington State Dept of Revenue complaints followed after Kevin Hulten admitted under oath that Jon Rudicil and he were operating a “for profit” company, and public records do not support that he paid any federal or state tax on money Hulten and Rudicil generated helping attorney Jack Connelly criminally harass Senator Jeanne Darnelle.

How public records from King County’s Major Crimes Unit exposed Kevin Thomas Hulten and Jon Rudicil’s Racketeering Enterprise

Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil were on Snohomish County’s payroll at the time they were assisting attorney Jack Connelly in his efforts to criminally harass the Honorable Senator Jennelle Darnielle. Public records from Snohomish County confirm that Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil never paid a single cent of tax on their RICO activities.

It wasn’t clear Thursday if Hulten had hired an attorney. Perhaps Krystal Tate or her firm will represent Mr. Hulten?

The Stevens County Prosecutor’s Office officially filed charges on May 9, 2017, and the Gold Bar Reporter has already notified the Court that a videographer will be present during any hearing.  We believe history is in the making here in Snohomish County, and Kevin Hulten just gave us the avenue for unearthing the massive corruption inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

Mark Roe, Snohomish County’s current prosecutor, misappropriated public funds to provide Kevin Hulten a criminal legal defense once Anne Block filed a racketeering charged against him in U.S. Federal District Court.

However, when Block noted to Seattle U.S. Federal District Court Judge Richard Jones that she had obtained public records from Snohomish County documenting that Washington State Bar Association’s lead counsel Linda Eide’s first cousin Senator Tracy Eide, Senator Steve Hobbs, Shoreline attorney then county Prosecutor Margaret King met and conspired with executive Aaron Reardon and Kevin Hulten in January 2013 to go after Block’s Washington State Bar license as a favor to a killer/employee John E. Pennington, Judge Jones did what any corrupt government official would do, he dismissed the complaint sending the cases into the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. If the 9th Circuit upholds precedent, Block’s cases will be remanded back for discovery and Hulten will be deposed.

Kevin Hulten is expected this time to serve jail time, up to 364 days and a $5,000 fine.

However, the best part of this story is simple: charges of theft are allowed in as an exception to the heresy rule, so Block intends to notify the 9th Circuit shortly noting that attorney Lin O’Dell was recently caught stealing and threatening elderly clients and cited by three courts for her criminal racket.

Videos and police reports have been requested from Colville police dept. and will be uploaded onto U Tube once received.

Washingtonians have a right to free from government sponsored gang stalking and thieves like Kevin Hulten should be in prison just like any other common criminal.

 

Reporting from the east coast   MAY 12, 2017

 

The First Amendment prevails in Pierce County, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington providing more evidence of RICO

“Open letter to Crystal Hill Pennington, a victim of Domestic Abuse”  

” Stop telling yourself you can fix him.  He’s been this way for a long, long time and he doesn’t intend to change. Don’t be a sacrificial lamb on the alter of rage. Don’t play the martyr to his hate.  You can never save someone by letting them destroy you. That’s not love, that’s relational suicide. Save yourself instead.  Get out while there is still time.”

John Mark Green


John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington’s “fraud upon the Washington Courts, providing more evidence of RICO. Restraining order proceedings provide under oath testimony of Penningtons racketeering. A new racketeering suit coming. “

truth_is_the_new_hate_speech

For over eight years, John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington have filed countless forged court records, filed false police reports with at least three county agencies, and committed perjury in an effort to SLAPP down investigation on his criminal racketeering crimes.

From September 2016 to present, John E Pennington and his battered 4th wife Crystal Hill Pennington have been pursuing a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter. Why? Because they don’t like being public officials subject to public scrutiny. First  Amendment, New York Times v Sullivan.

New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964),[1] was a landmark United States Supreme Court case that established the actual malice standard, which has to be met before press reports about public officials can be considered to be defamation and libel;[2] and hence allowed free reporting of the civil rights campaigns in the southern United States. It is one of the key decisions supporting the freedom of the press.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co._v._Sullivan


Pierce County holds ” John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s request for restraining order amounts to a prior restraint on free speech. Therefore, DENIED. ”

But not before everyone was placed under oath and here’s what came out in documents the Gold Bar Reporter presented to the court:

Pedophile

In 2010,  John E. Pennington is a diagnosed as a ” sociopath with no empathy for human life” Dr. Hedricks, King County Superior Court.

Pages from Penny

See http://www.courts.wa.gov/content/Briefs/A01/653172%20appellant’s.pdf#search=Laughlin v Pennington

 

John E Pennington’s criminal conduct and violent outburst replicate serial murderer Ted Bundy.

 

Theodore Robert Bundy (born Theodore Robert Cowell; November 24, 1946 – who  Biographer Ann Rule described him as “a sadistic sociopath who took pleasure from another human’s pain and the control he had over his victims, to the point of death, and even after”. 

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Bundy

 

Only one difference between Ted Bundy and John E. Pennington, Ted Bundy was fairly educated and smart.  John E. Pennington never completed a real college degree ( like Crystal Hill Pennington’s online diploma mill degree from an Eastern Oregon State, a college with accreditation problems ).


Pierce County Court restraining order proceedings finally put to rest that the evidence we collected on John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington is true

John E Pennington labeled a sociopath by Dr Hedricks. True 

John E Pennington ( 42 year of age at the time of sexual exploitation of a young girl)  taking inappropriate naked showers with a six year old girl with his penis slung in her face once caught by a witness.  True 

John E. Pennington did cause 43 people in the Oso mudslide to suffocate to death because instead of performing emergency management duties, John Pennington was violating Snohomish County’s Ordinance( prohibiting salaried workers from moonlighting), John Pennington was violating the law and preforming private FEMA contracts on the east coast while 43 people suffocated In Oso mudslides. John Pennington was found to be in dereliction of duties.  True.

Negligent homicide is a much lower intent crime and is used as a charge when one person causes the death of another through criminal negligence. John Pennington is guilty of killing 43 people in Oso mudslides.   

John Pennington is a man with a violent history that cant keep his hands to himself. True.

One major admission under oath came from Crystal Hill Pennington (nee Berg) finally had to admit under oath that she was in fact convicted of bank fraud.  True.

See below.

 

canvas canvas1  Hill Penington bank fraud

On April 27, 2017, Crystal Hill Pennington was forced to admit under oath that she was guilty of bank fraud. I also noted for the record that Crystal Hill Pennington had been stealing form the City of Gold Bar.

An objective observer was in the audience who said ” where did the Penningtons’ take acting classes? Those tears were pathetic attempt to sway the judge… ”

When the judge decided against the Penningtons SLAPP, John Pennington threw his files against the wall and was very disrespectful to the judge.  This caught the attention of the sheriff’s officer who feared for our lives insisting on giving us a personal escort to our cars.

A video grapher was present and captured John Pennington’s violent outbursts on camera.

John and  Crystal Hill Pennington’s true colors also known as criminal harassment, provided more evidence of RICO, and a new lawsuit has been filed for defamatory actions taken from 2016 to present.
A copy of the audio will be posted soon.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc?

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.
