Snohomish County, Washington, working hard to violate the rights of the accused

First, my readers should know that this article is not intended to provide evidence for or against the guilt of the accused. It’s meant to shed a little sunlight on a major injustice that is happening inside many counties throughout the United States.

In my past articles it’s safe to assume that America is bleeding, bleeding in favor of money over doing what’s right and just.  We no longer have news reporters, we have embedded journalists who are more worried about being wined and dined by government officers, and spoon fed stories instead of investigating and researching truths.

As the direct result Prosecutors and Defense attorneys are making side deals, agreeing to throw cases, and violating the rights of the accused “for profit.”  Such is the case with the Snohomish County Public Defender Association,  and many attorneys who have entered into contracts with Snohomish County Prosecutors’.

Our story https://goldbarreporter.org/tag/snohomish-county-attorney-jason-schwarz/

outlines a corrupt defense attorney not only failing to effectively represent his clients, but accepting financial incentives not to.  Sadly, attorney Jason Schwartz, although lazy,  is not the exception to assisting Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office in fixing cases to ensure convictions. All in exchange for defense contracts, $$$.

Attorney Phil Sayles may not be the exception, but he is now on our official target list of corrupt attorneys who are throwing their clients under the bus ” for profit.”

Phil Sayles, defense attorney in Washington State v John Reed 


Last week, another activist brought to our attention another little scam involving an incompetent defense attorney here in Snohomish County named Phil Sayles.  Sadly, we know Phil Sayles, personally, as we went to the same law school together and at a time in need, we helped him get started here in Snohomish County.  Something both my partner and I regret as it was clear from just speaking with Mr. Sayles that his interest was not doing the right thing, or helping those accused of a crime, it was making money.

In 2005 I met with Phil Sayles after learning from another law school graduate that he was also taking the Bar prep class at the Seattle University.  Anyone that has ever experienced the grueling experience of three years of law school knows how hard it is to pass.

During my first year of law school our criminal law professor Dr. Koeing said  “look to your left and look to your right, after this semester half of you will not be here because you did not receive a C or better.”   Over the next year, I came to know Dr. Koeing personally and professionally as one of those law school professors who felt it wasn’t only a job  to represent those accused of crimes, it was a duty to do so with diligence,  competency, and  honesty.

I’ll never forget my first year criminal law class when Dr. Koeing called on a student, John, who appeared to be sleeping in her class.  A class of 155 students.  Dr. Koeing first said ” are you sleeping?” John said ” no” and her next response was asking him  to recite the cases assigned for today. For over 90 minutes Dr. Koeing kept John on his feet, Socratic method of  drilling him on one basic criminal defense issue, an issue that had John read his case assignments for the class, he would have been able to grip and elaborate on the issue, rule, make an analysis and then conclude.  But he didn’t because fact was John was asleep and he was mentally lazy; his parents wanted him to be a lawyer because his dad was a lawyer.

Immediately following Dr. Koeing’s drilling of John, she called my name and asked me to stand and recite the cases.  In five minutes, I recited the cases, gave her issues, rules, and then analyzed why it was important in the context of criminal defense.  After five minutes, she said ” please come see me after class.”   I remember thinking ” oh shit, what did I do to not stay under the radar.”

After class Dr. Koeing asked me to walk with her back to her office.  At her office she handed me a copy of Women’s Human Rights Encyclopedias, and said ” have you read or had an interest in human rights?” I said ” of course, I’m a single mother, who worked full time while at the same time attending university classes. I’m a feminist, who believes in equal rights for all and that includes women and men alike.  I know what hardship is all about as I worked in a male dominated field almost all of my life.”

Dr. Koeing said “when you become a lawyer, think long and hard before doing the wrong thing because it’s very easy to think about money over doing the right thing. Promise me that you will never forget John Adams said to always stand on principle…even if you stand alone.”   A promise I never folded on, and even when faced with countless racketeering offenses committed against me, I always stand on principle, even if I stand alone.  Prosperity has followed me as a result, and I never folded to accomplish living a successful and prosperous life.

In the summer of 2006 Phil Sayles finally passed the Washington State Bar exam, after four failed attempts.  His first case was down in Burien for a traffic ticket.   I saw Phil just before leaving the house for his very first appearance and wished him well. Later that day I saw Phil and asked him how it went and he told me that Judge made an ass out of him because he didn’t know he needed to file motions in writing.  [ in some states motions can be verbally filed but not in Washington].

I gave Phil a few pointers suggesting that he do what I did and go to the University of Washington law library or the free King County law library as there’s a lot of good books on motions and how to defend persons inside Courts of Limited Jurisdictions.  Sayles response to me was ” that’s not not how it works in criminal courts. ” I urged him to learn the court rules and what motions should be filed otherwise he’d get nailed and sued for legal malpractice.

Phil Sayles response was ” it doesn’t work like that in criminal court… don’t bog me down with your motion bullshit.”  My response to Phil was “just think of how hard research and writing was to get through in law school. Remember those research and writing papers due three times a week, journals, etc. ?”

Phil Sayles then confided in me and my partner that he paid someone to write his research and writing papers in law school, and when I looked shocked and appalled, he said ” everyone did it!” I said ” I did not. I consider that cheating and dishonest!”

A few days later I sparked a conversation asking Phil Sayles why he went to law school, and his response was ” I wanted to be a rock star” for which my response was ” perhaps you should have picked a up a guitar, but law is about helping people who are almost always defenseless against the government. ”

After this conversation, I  never spoke to Phil Sayles again, as I seldom talk to people I have zero respect for.

So it’s no surprise that after reading over 5 million public records (emails often), I discovered that somehow attorney Phil Sayles managed to obtain criminal defense referrals from our good friends inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

Last week, another activist brought to my attention the case of Washington State v John Reed.


Brady v Maryland, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brady_v._Maryland 

Basic first year law school stuff 

 


Last week another activist reporter discovered that a known Snohomish County Brady Cop named David Fontenot was the lead detective in Washington State v John Reed.  She was concerned that attorney Phil Sayles and/or Snohomish County Prosecutors did not disclose this information to the accused John Reed.

Our Courts held that all Brady Material must be disclosed not only to defense counsel but also to the accused.  As I stated above, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer David Fontnote is a “Brady Cop.” That is, he is listed on the Snohomish County Brady List.  “Brady” is in reference to a famous case known as Brady v.  Maryland. 

For those of our readers who are not legal beagles, police officers who land on the Brady List are known to be dishonest, as in this case, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer David Fontenot is one such criminal with a badge.

Now for those of you who feel John Reed is guilty, I’d like you to know that Mr. Reed is American and here in America ” defendants are not guilty until proven guilty… and entitled to effective assistance of counsel.”

Sadly attorney Phil Sayles’s interests are not with his client, John Reed.  Email communication and video footage show document that Phil Sayles is working jointly with the Snohomish County Prosecutors’ in this case to throw his client under the bus, has engaged in what several of us consider to “witness tampering” staging testimony of the state’s primary witness which conflicts with his duty to diligently and competently represent his client John Reed.

In the summer of 2017, an activist learned that attorney Phil Sayles’s name was being passed around Snohomish County jails by Snohomish County guards ( at the bequest no doubt of the Prosecutor’s Office who are using defense attorneys like attorneys Phil Sayles and Jason Schwarz to fix cases in favor of awarding contracts for criminal defense).

The activist became worried that Sayles wasn’t told or aware that Snohomish County Sheriff Officer David Fontenot was sued, fired for theft, falsifying search warrants, guilty of falsely arresting his wife’s soon to be ex, and had in fact been labeled a Brady Cop and postured for criminal prosecution for violating the civil rights of the accused ( Fontenot tasered a handcuffed man in the backseat of police car and fired and recommended for criminal prosecution from Challam County a result).

The above information was provided to Mark Roe by Challam County and the City of Snohomish in 2008. Instead of Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe informing the public, Mark Roe hide until Lori Shavlik, another one of Adam Cornell and Mark Roe’s victims, discovered David Fontenot’s Brady material from a former employer who fired him for cause.

Lori Shavlik turned over Snohomish County David Fontenot’s Brady Cop material to attorney Phil Sayles during the summer of 2017, long before he was retained to defend John Reed.

Instead of Snohomish County Sheriff Officer David Fontenot being behind bars where he belongs, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell hide the Brady Copy information from the public another defendant named Lori Shavlik found it buried in his employee files.

In 2014, after years of hiding from public disclosure that Snohomish County Sheriff Officer David Fontenot is a known Brady Cop.

The Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on Mark Roe’s crimes against Lori Shavlik, and thankfully a jury was able to see through Mark Roe, Adam Cornell and David Fontenot’s fabrication of evidence and she was acquitted of all charges.


On Saturday May 14th Lori Shavlik went to see John Reed at Snohomish County jail, to share with him that she gave attorney Phil Sayles the Brady files she had collected on Sheriff Officer David Fontenot.

 

John Reed told Shavlik that attorney Phil Sayles did not disclose information that David Fontenot was a Brady cop.  See David Fontneot files were not only hand delivered to attorney Phil Sayles by Lori Shavlik but I also gave Phil Sayles copies of the above David Fontenot files three months ago.

 

If that wasn’t bad enough, last week another activist videotaped under GR 16 attorney Phil Sayles and Snohomish County Prosecutors Andrew Alsdorf tampering with a witness ( outside the judge and jury) couching him on what questions not only the prosecution would ask him, but also what questions Phil Sayles would ask.

Attorney Phil Sayles had no business working with the Prosecutors, outside the jury and judge, explaining to the Prosecutors on what questions and exhibits he would ask the State’s chief witness.  Captured on camera while the jury and the judge were not present, Defense counsel Phil Sayles and Prosecutors are tampering with the witness testimony.

 

The Gold Bar Reporter uploaded a copy of a copy of the video inside the public courtroom capturing exparte communication between Phil Sayles and the Prosecutors staging what the witness would see and testify to.

 

 

 

 

Snohomish County Prosecutors’ violating the public’s trust, withholding public records EXPOSED

2018 Shavlik v Sno County_Page_4

 

 


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


 

Injustice for one, is injustice for all

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

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

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

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

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

 

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 


 

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

 Mark Roe Pic

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Rape in Monroe Washington High School, ignored by Dawson Place

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

RCW 36.27.020- Prosecutor’s Duties.

The prosecuting attorney shall:
(1) Be legal adviser of the legislative authority, giving it his or her written opinion when required by the legislative authority or the chairperson thereof touching any subject which the legislative authority may be called or required to act upon relating to the management of county affairs;
(2) Be legal adviser to all county and precinct officers and school directors in all matters relating to their official business, and when required draw up all instruments of an official nature for the use of said officers;
(3) Appear for and represent the state, county, and all school districts subject to the supervisory control and direction of the attorney general in all criminal and civil proceedings in which the state or the county or any school district in the county may be a party;
(4) Prosecute all criminal and civil actions in which the state or the county may be a party, defend all suits brought against the state or the county, and prosecute actions upon forfeited recognizances and bonds and actions for the recovery of debts, fines, penalties, and forfeitures accruing to the state or the county;
(5) Attend and appear before and give advice to the grand jury when cases are presented to it for consideration and draw all indictments when required by the grand jury;

(7) Carefully tax all cost bills in criminal cases and take care that no useless witness fees are taxed as part of the costs and that the officers authorized to execute process tax no other or greater fees than the fees allowed by law;
(8) Receive all cost bills in criminal cases before district judges at the trial of which the prosecuting attorney was not present, before they are lodged with the legislative authority for payment, whereupon the prosecuting attorney may retax the same and the prosecuting attorney must do so if the legislative authority deems any bill exorbitant or improperly taxed;
(9) Present all violations of the election laws which may come to the prosecuting attorney’s knowledge to the special consideration of the proper jury;
(10) Examine once in each year the official bonds of all county and precinct officers and report to the legislative authority any defect in the bonds of any such officer;
(11) Seek to reform and improve the administration of criminal justice and stimulate efforts to remedy inadequacies or injustice in substantive or procedural law;
(12) Participate in the statewide sexual assault kit tracking system established in RCW 43.43.545 for the purpose of tracking the status of all sexual assault kits connected to criminal investigations and prosecutions within the county. Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.

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

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

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

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

This past week, I’ve been covering a Snohomish County prosecution for arson in the 1st decree against Lori Shavlik.  But this wasn’t the first prosecution of Ms. Shavlik,  it’s Snohomish County Prosecutor’s second run. The first trial resulted in hung jury, with jurors stating “ the State failed to prove its case.”

While pedophiles are walking free, and baby killers are released because Mark Roe failed to file simple papers ( http://snocoreporter.com/3-month-old-babys-killers-walk-free-for-now/,) Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and his political racketeering gangsters from the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office are maliciously prosecuting – for the second time- a forty-five year old mother of five for Arson I.

Statistically, women do not commit crimes of arson; women represent less than 4 % of all arsonists by most social scientists findings.

arson (2)

As of today, millions of taxpayer dollars have been misspent over a fire that started  behind a dryer unit at Ms. Shavlik’s place of business – a tanning salon- and while she’s embattled in a contract /lease dispute with the building’s owner who just happens to be a personal and dear friend to the lead investigator who is also the Fire Chief, and a former City of Snohomish Brady Cop David Fontenot ( exposed and terminated from another county for stealing, harassing women in the workplace, and lying on search warrants, etc).

And by the way, the Fire Chief has no official fire investigation training, he is simply a political official, elected by the public; and a dirty cop David Fontenot is now a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer.  Sounds like people are being rewarded here.

After reviewing the pictures from the County’s so called crime scene, it’s clear to me that the so called crime scene has been tampered with, but I’ll wait to post how we know until after the State closes its case.

Interesting to read the last line above whereas Mark Roe writes “This memorandum has been generated to provide the defense notice of this potential impeachment issue.”

Note that Mark Roe cares not for wrongfully charging and convicting citizens, but only for how this might affect his office.


Commentary from the Gold Bar Reporter

 

At the time this post was made, this entry represents day four of State v. Lori Shavlik.

I’d like my readers to know that the only reason the Gold Bar Reporter decided to cover the case is because I have ample reason to believe that Snohomish County Detective David Fontenot and  Snohomish County Prosecutor Fransesca Yahyavi should in prison for the malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik; and for what these criminals did to her children, I hope they sue Snohomish County for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

As an award winning journalist, with criminal defense knowledge, I intend to do everything possible to expose the cockroaches who retaliated against Ms. Shavlik, causing grave emotional distress to her family, as a favor to the building owner and the head of the Monroe School District, who with no surprise, Ms. Shavlik sued for harassing her daughter just a year prior to his good friends inside the City of Snohomish trumping up criminal charges on her.


In Washington State Bar Association lead counsel

Linda Eide’s own words, Re: Block, “Scene One

 

Snohomish County has at the helm of this malicious prosecution, prosecutor Fransesca Yahyavi, who is being assisted by Snohomish County Detective who just happens to be a Brady Cop/Detective David Fontenot.

The first issue several observers noticed is Fransesca Yahyavi and Brady Cop David Fontenot seem to have very very very personal (possibly sexual) relationship.

How we know is simple: Fontenot was caught massaging Fransesca Yahyavi’s buttocks with his finger tips.

Either this  is a new type of legal guidance not yet listed in Westlaw ( although admiittingly we did not search Lexis Nexis) or there exists a personal relationship.

Since this is day four of the trial,  I feel comfortable stating that anyone who uses their fingers to massage my buttocks is someone very very close to me, like my partner or my message therapist.

Now, I’m not sure about my readers but I’d say “a lawyer who is engaged in a personal relationship with their client/s is guilty of gross violations of their ethical duties as a lawyer under Washington State’s Rules of Professional Conduct.”

Now, just to make sure Fransesca Yahyavi’s is claiming some type of attorney-client relationship exist, while at the same allowing a dirty Brady Cop to massage her buttocks in a public courtroom, I wanted to make sure Fransesca Yahyavi  is trying to claim attorney-client relationship exists, so I requested her emails pursuant to RCW 42.56.

But from what several onlookers saw, Ms. Yahyavi and David Fontenot’s emails should be pretty juicy. Greatest show on Earth!

Valentine’s Day is certainly not over in Judge Millie Judge’s courtroom this week.

When’s a Dirty Copy, always a Dirty Cop

 

As I stated above, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer David Fontnote is a “Brady Cop.” That is, he is listed on the Snohomish County Brady List …er uh…Lust. “Brady” is in reference to a famous case known as Brady v.  Maryland.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brady_v._Maryland

For those of our readers who are not legal beagles, police officers who landed on the Brady List are known to be dishonest, as in this case, David Fontenot has not only been caught lying on search warrants, but he was also fired from employment for sexually harassing women at the Sheriff’s Office in another county, caught falsifying search warrants and stealing from crimes scenes.

Boy do I love Snohomish County Washington, it’s quite the place to raise children. Dave Somers where the hell are you?

Because of  U.S. Supreme Court’s Brady ruling, prosecutors are required to notify defendants and their attorneys anytime a law enforcement official involved in their case has a know history  of knowingly lying in an official capacity.  However, Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, at least in this case, feel that they didnt have to disclose that information to Lori Shavlik’s lawyer.  But they need not worry, because another reporter did, and she did a wonderful job at exposing the cockroaches, a.k.a David Fontenot and Ms. Yahyavi. search www.snocoreporter.com

This prompted Ms. Shavlik to demand that her lawyer, John Crowley, notify the court, specifically Judge Millie Judge ( who at least appears to be trying to conduct a fair trial, at least at day four, stage one), to file a last minute motion to allow the defendant to enter information about Brady Copy David Fontenot into her trial.

Despite this well-known case law, case law that is incorporated into Official court rules,  Ms. Yahyavi moved in pretrial that Mr. Fontnote’s Brady cop history be excluded from this trial.  This is an attorney asking the court, the Honorable Millie Judge, to break the law.

It appears, Ms. Yahyavi missed or failed constitutional law or simply believes her actions to be above the law. Opps, there is that Kalina holding from Our Supreme Court that she should be very worried about. . .  but she may ask Tim Ford for advice on that one.

The court’s response was that she needed to think about it. On Tuesday, Judge Millie Judge, with the camera rolling, ruled against Ms. Yahyavi’s warped and facially unconstitutional motion and will allow Detective Footnote’s Brady history to be disclosed to the jury…although it hasn’t been disclosed as yet while Det. Fontnote “assists” Ms. Yahyavi with parading her 26 “witnesses” to the stand.

On day four, not one single witness is yet to introduce any connection to the fabricated arson scene.  This after launching a massive investigation of epic proportions deserving of a serial murderer, including three search warrants, one of each of Ms. Shavlik’s two businesses ( tanning salons) , and one of her family home where her young children were lined up in the entry hall like felons while the home was completely torn apart.

With no surprise, Our good friends from Snohomish County Prosecutor and our expert Sheriff’s Officers found no evidence supporting the state’s case for Arson I.


Wasting taxpayer monies to racket up criminal

charges as political favors

 

When I think of Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, I think of cockroaches scattering every time their public records are requested.  Cockroaches hate sunlight, so those of you readers interested shining much needed light on corrupt government officials ask for their emails and telephone records pursuant to RCW 42.56. Pretty juicy stuff, possibly National Enquirer worthy.

The Prosecution spent at least 3 million dollars arraigning a tsunami of “exhibits” (that seem to be inconsistent shots of the same dryer vent) and last but not least, Brady Cop , and a fine member documenting what’s wrong with Snohomish County Sherriff’s Officer, David Fontnote’s “special” legal guidance that has juicy lust filled moments  closely associated with the first X rated movie I saw as a child “Deep Throat”  …moments not defined by law and not listed in Westlaw, but certainly prohibited by Washington State Bar Rules of Professional Conduct ( Lawyers). Worry not,

Ms. Yahyavi she will never be prosecuted under because our good friends at the bar have never disbarred a prosecutor.


RCW 42.56 is the public’s greatest tool in exposing the cockroaches

where they roam, inside  government agencies

Snohomish County’s former Deputy Director of Emergency Management told political appointee John E. Pennington ” stop bothering Anne Block… you’re going over the radar and it will be the end of  your career.”

But sociopaths never listen . . . hence is the case here.

Detective  Fontenot is also a witness in this prosecution, and thanks to Judge Millie Judge, David Fontenot will get his videotaped 2 hours of fame when being impeached by the defense counsel about his stealing, lying on declarations, harassing women, and tampering with evidence in this case.

While sitting in on day one of this trial, I had a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer violate my civil rights by illegally seizing me – in violation of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Const. Because I, as a severally hearing impaired disabled American, sat in the front pew of Judge Millie Judge’s courtroom.  The Sheriff lied claiming that only witnesses can sit in the front row of the courtroom. Trained in criminal defense, I said ” oh really, while there’s trial , your telling me that witnesses are allowed to sit in the courtroom? Bull shit!”

Thankfully another open government supporter is in the courtroom video taping this violation, and a tort claim has been filed against Snohomish County and the Sheriff’s Officer specifically. Now, the only the reason I mentioned this fact that may seem a little outside the scope of this article is because witnesses are never allowed to sit inside the courtroom while there’s an ongoing jury trial.

Why is simple: witnesses should never know what other witnesses are going to testify to before they testify.  Unless of course you live in Snohomish County, Washington.

While all of the State’s  witnesses have been painstakingly sequestered in the hallway in order to keep them from being influenced by other testimony in the trial, Brady Cop Detective . Fontnote is allowed to be present through the entire trial as Ms. Yahyavi’s “assistant” while Ms. Yahyavi reminds the court that the news camera videographer and journalists present are absolutely not to talk to the witnesses in the hall lest they create a mistrial.

This results in a court verbal order that the video footage is not to be publicly posted until the trial is complete. Meanwhile, Ms. Yahyavi launches a secondary attack on one of the investigative journalist present by scurrying out into the hallway to alert security that they need to remove this person from the courtroom because she had the audacity to sit behind the prosecution’s desk.

The smile on Ms. Yahyavi’s face as she returned from this task could only be described as that of a  Cheshire cat and captured nicely on camera. This occurred right after Ms. Yahyavi placed a 2′ X 3′ display easel between her and the journalist completely obscuring the view from that gallery view.


Sleepy, yawning, and 


“Judge I need to use the restroom”


During the trial  it appears 70% of Ms. Yahyavi’s witnesses have been on the stand. It had become a blur of minutia.  None have testified yet to ANY evidence that ties Ms Shavlik to the alleged crime of arson.  Absolutely zero.

Jurors’ spent the majority of the week yawning, eyes floating up and down struggling to stay awake, and ending with one juror asking the Judge to use the restroom. I began thinking ” Did this lawyer really manage to get through undergraduate studies?”  Anyone who can read or pay off a member of the WSBA Disciplinary Office can get a passing grade on the Bar exam, but undergraduate studies is where one learns to communicate with others. This prosecutor missed a few classes.”

I must admit the State has proven that Ms. Shavlik took money from the cash register drawer of her own business to go shopping with her daughter and buy lunch. Under these standards for proving that someone is guilty of the  crime of arson, almost all small business owners would be convicted of crimes, if not all.

Several witnesses also testified that Ms. Shavlik may not be a skilled manager of the business.

One witness, Rebecca, who was also a teenage single mother who Ms. Shavlik allowed her to bring her infant child to work,  testified that Ms. Shavlik was at times a terrible boss.

As a single mother myself, I could have only dreamed of having a boss that allowed me a little extra time with my one and only baby girl.  Rebecca hardly demonstrated that Ms. Slavlik is guilty of arson, but this witnesses testimony left me believing that this witness may have played a part in framing Ms. Slavlik to save her heroin addicted brother. But I’ll need to send my investigators out to explore that issue before writing a “tit for tat story” on this witness.

Overall most of the witnesses seem to like Ms Slavlik.

Major crimes detective Kendra Conley is still testifying. She did testify that she investigated thousands of cases, but we hear her emails may be pretty damn juicy, as juicy as her attire in court on Thursday, which we likened to a street walker ( perhaps she was assigned to Snohomish County’s Prostitution sting ring earlier in the day ?).

Detective Conley also with no surprise admitted that she too was rewarded with a job from the City of Snohomish to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. But what sticks with me is that  She also lied to the jury that she participated in thousands of cases.  A search of current case files documents that Ms. Conley is a liar.

Snohomish County  has yet to introduce any evidence that meets the bar of RCW 9A.48.020 Arson in the first degree and our country’s burden of proof requirement “ beyond a reasonable doubt. ”

The jurors are falling asleep, rolling their eyes, bored, and one juror  had to use the restroom so badly that he interpreted the judge saying I need to use the restroom. I presume to throw up over the stench coming from the Prosecutor’s desk.

A videographer is present, so our story is captured on camera. It certainly shines much needed sunlight on the criminals ruining our democracy.


 

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

Sometime after 9/11 public officials decided that they have a free pass to spit on citizens’ with no oversight from our federal courts. From what I’ve seen from our federal judges, Seattle Federal Court Judge Richard Jones ( http://snocoreporter.com/for-sale-uncle-tom-jones/), Seattle Federal Court Judge Marcia Pechman (whose husband is a hearing officer for the WSBA so she dismissed cases filed against the WSBA as favors to her husband’s friends at t


he WSBA), and Seattle Federal Court Judge Ronald Leighton who appears to have a sworn allegiance to a Bible titled “Corruption” they may not be too far from the truth. See https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/10/09/washington-state-bar-sued-again-more-racketeering-allegations/

Oprah Winfrey’s dollars well spent on Judge Richard Jones’s nominations as he continuously spits on the civil rights of minorities who sue for discrimination and retaliation. Perhaps Judge Jones was Mark Roe’s mentor.

Birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine. . . .

Dystopia, you bet, America will soon become a 3rd world country.   Reporting from the front lines of democracy, the Gold Bar Reporter.
