Public Records Police Officer Shelley Rowe ( Olson), Duvall Washington
Recently, I deposed a law enforcement official from Duvall Washington who is entrusted to answer public records requests. What I discovered is Ms Rowe apparently has a criminal history.
Imagine you’ve been accused of a crime, you request access to public records, and you have not only one Duvall police officer as an undisclosed Brady Cop, but you also have an undisclosed Brady Cop who answers your public records request.
In Brady v Maryland, our court held that any police officer with credibility problems are referred to as “Brady cops”. Due to the Brady ruling, prosecutors and city attorneys ( civil or criminal) are required to notify defendants, and their attorneys, whenever a law enforcement officer involved in their case has a sustained record for knowingly lying or criminal history in their background that could likely lead to other discoverable evidence must be disclosed, regardless of whether its a criminal or civil case.

Welcome to Duvall Washington. King County Washington is such a lovely place to raise kids.
In 2015, We reported on Duvall Brady Officer Lori Batiot. As a result of our investigation of Brady Officer Lori Batiot was constructively terminated from the City of Duvall last week (2/10/2017). But not before she committed gross civil rights violations against several reporters, fabricated evidence, lied under oath, and filed false instruments in countless jurisdictions, against countless of defendants and residents all over the state, from Ferndale to Brier to Duvall Washington.
The number of people Brady Officer Lori Batiot falsified evidence against is unknown, but my investigation continues inside Duvall Washington, turning over every record request sent by or answered by two Brady cops.
So the question from a reader is: Did the City of Duvall pay her off to go away or in exchange for her testimony in your public records case? An issue we’re investigating.
Now on the heels of riding our community of one Brady Cop, last week We learned that Shelley Rowe ( Olson) Duvall’s public records officer is also an undisclosed Brady Cop. Perhaps the City of Duvall’s application says ” Criminals or those charged with criminal conduct need only apply”
As correctly reported below, Duvall Brady Cop Lori Batiot’s drug addiction and drunkenness, caused not only problems within the Duvall police department’s moral, but also for defendants who were wrongfully charged, and in one vehicular case from Grays Harbor, Lori Batiot rear-ended a man while drunk causing permanent major life damage to a man’s spinal cord.
Thankfully for Lori Batiot, Gray’s Harbor police officers did what any good police officer does in Washington, they covered up that fact that Lori Batiot was on drugs and drunk when you caused irreparable damage to a citizen. The only reason we learned of Lori Batiot’s criminal conduct is because she was sued in Skagit County.
For over 15 years Duvall police officer Lori Batiot managed to stay under the radar, committing racketeering crimes of trumping up criminal charges on honest hard working citizens as political favors. However, when Ms. Batiot ( Hoffer) came after us for First Amendment protected speech on behalf of another Duvall criminal ( residents John Pennington, child rape Colwitz County 19992, and his bank frauding wife, Crystal Berg, bank fraud 2005 Snohomish County and 2000 North Carolina), she hit a road block, the First Amendment and one fantastic constitutional law scholar.
What we later learned from a whistleblower who released unredacted employment files iot is the Duvall Police department knew Lori Batiot was a Brady Copy, but they failed to disclose this fact to countless defendants she testified against and falsified evidence against. One said resident told the Gold Bar Reporter ” she ( Batiot) planted drugs in my school locker. Why, because she didn’t like me sticking my middle finger up to her.Had we known that she was a Brady Cop, we would have used that to discredit her. Duvall Washington should be sued for the harm they caused so many. I recently told the Mayor I want her fired! ”
Lori Batiot’s employee file documented that she was an uneducated political appointee to John E. Pennington and Duvall’s Mayor Will Ibershoff. The deal was this: John Pennington would get former Executive Aaron Reardon to contract with Will Ibershoof’s employer, Waste Management, for county services, and Mayor Ibershoff would hire John Pennington’s mistress Lori Batiot. Why, because John Pennington had just been charged with beating up a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall City Council Member Ann Laughlin. See below.
Corrupt Duvall police officer Lori Batiot, involved in extramarital affair with John E. Pennington, a source states for years while he was FEMA Region 10 Director.
Public records from Lori Batiot’s criminal complaint file inside the City of Shoreline document that attorney Sandra Sullivan and Margaret King set up a King County Sheriff’s Officer named Cary Cobltanz, a RICO Enterprise member, who tried to trump up criminal charges on Gold Bar Reporter for trying to warn the public about John E. Pennington’s pedophilism. All protected free speech issues.
Perhaps Ms. Sullivan failed constitutional law or she’s in so deep with Michael Kenyon and John E. Pennington’s racketeering that she saw no other way out of being exposed once Gold Bar’s emails are release from January 2009 to June 2009 ( months when Sandra Sullivan agreed to quash criminal charges against John Pennington in exchange for political favors from Snohomish County.
Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe: what a tangled web You’ve weaved when you attempt to deceive.
In late June 2015, King County Prosecutors released public records documenting that corrupt Duvall police officer Lori Batiot’s criminal complaint was “unfounded.” The Prosecutors reasoned what Judge Meyers reasoned in his opinion when the DISMISSED John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s complaint in March 2015, ” Protected Free Speech.”
Records released from the City of Shoreline and Duvall document that the records that corrupt police officer Lori Baiot placed inside the public record belong to another blogger, were altered by Crystal Hill Pennington ( who with no surprise plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005) and pedophile from Snohomish County named John E. Pennington.
John E. Pennington is Snohomish County’s former Director who caused 43 people in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in March 2014, because instead of doing his job, he was off operating his own company on the County’s dime, and according to an insider, he was criminal harassing Gold Bar Reporters, while blogging on his Sky Valley Chronicle blog spot.
A source inside the City of Brier stated ” it was pretty common knowledge that Lori Batiot was engaged in an extramarital affair with John Pennington while he was FEMA Region 10 Director. In fact, she was caught taking the police car home so her and John could meet up. John was friends with Mayor Lane. You might remember Mayor from City of Brier was the Mayor involved that unsolved murder. He let Lori Batiot run her real estate business on the City’s dime for Windemere, and he set up John Pennington’s extramarital meet up with Lori Batiot. When the new Mayor came after Lane was alleged to be involved in the murder, he put an end to Lori Batiot’s misuse of the City’s resources for her personal and extramarital affair with John Pennington.”
Corrupt King County Sheriff’s Officer, Cary Coblantz, a RICO member
Those of us who love and support open government, can rest a little easier tonight knowing that King County released public records from a Sheriff’s Officer Cary Coblantz documenting gross civil rights violations. See below. Illegal tracking of US citizens without a warrant overseas, in violation of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. Shoreline Officer Cary Coblantz was notified that he is being sued under 42 USC 1983 and RICO for his illegal conduct.
Cary Coblantz’s phone records confirm beyond any shadow of doubt that Sandra Sullivan assisted John Pennington’s little Racketeering efforts attempting to have the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime.
King County records also confirm that John E Pennington’s criminal conduct as stated herein took place using county resources and while on the County taxpayer’s dime, and he was behind the illegal tracking on the Gold Bar Reporter and her partner from London Heathrow airport. Records we will be posting once our 1983 suit is filed this week.
A RICO suit has been filed noting the City of Duvall’s municipal law firm of Kenyon Disend for Racketeering. Attorney Sandra Sullivan was informed on Thursday that she will be added to the next RICO suit after text messages and phone records from King County link her to the RICO Enterprise. Some really good shit!
We tried contacting attorney Sandra Sullivan ( Meadowcraft) for comment but she refused.
A little hint about what’s behind the curtain up here in Gold Bar Washington, hence why the City of Gold Bar has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding Kenyon Disend’s Racketeering crimes. All for a pedophile named John E. Pennington and a bank frauder named Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) .
According to Redmond District Court records, Sandra Sullivan (Meadowcraft) was employed by Kenyon Disend when she was assigned to prosecute Snohomish County’s number one political scum/appointee John E. Pennington for kicking and punching Duvall council member Anne Laughlin during her 3rd trimester and just three weeks before delivery of her daughter.
Instead of Sandra Sullivan prosecuting violent John Pennington, she quashed criminal assault charges from 2008-2009 against him. ( Snohomish County pay stubs document Pennington has been on paid administrative leave since Oso).
I spoke to attorney Sandra Sullivan seeking comment regarding her lack of objecting to John Pennington’s template motion to dismiss he filed in May 2009. Sandra Sullivan (Meadowcraft) and I spoke for sometime, and as soon as she realized that we were onto her predicate acts in violation of RICO, she hung up.
Agreeing to Quash Criminal Charges in Exchange for Political Influence. Racketeering ? I believe so

see above Sandra Sullivan’s ( Meadowcraft) King County filing noting John E. Pennington is a dangerous man RICO Issues that we reported about over the last year in “Kenyon Disend’s Dirty Bag of Secrets”
Kenyon Disend and all of its lawyers were contacted for comment but refused comment.
Last month, King County Prosecutor’s released a statement stating that Duvall police officer Lori Batiot’s and Crystal Hill Pennington and John Pennington’s complaints based solely on issues of free speech, protected First Amendment activity were “unfounded.”
In March 2015, King County Judge Meyers “DENIED” Lori Batiot’s friends, Crystal Hill Pennington and John Pennington’s request to “restrain” the Gold Bar Reporters as a “prior restraint on free speech.”
Public emails released from King County confirms that King County Sheriff’s Officer Cary Coblantz issued a false statement inferring that Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block and her partner were wanted for “felony warrants” thus luring the Department of Justice Interpol ( DOJ) into their little RICo gang.
Cary Coblantz then illegally tracked Block and her partner coming from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle as well las Block’s private investigator and his wife. And now thanks to King County, we know that John Pennington is directly linked to the illegal tracking of the Gold Bar Reporter and her partner coming back from London Heathrow Airport.
As of now, John Pennington is being sued in US Federal Court for Racketeering, and a new suit is on its way just in time for 2016.
A Internal affairs complaint has been substantiated against King County Officer/scum Cary Coblantz, and he was notifed that he will be named in a RICO suit coming soon.
All over assisting a corrupt police officer who has a long history of conduct hardly becoming of any person let alone a police officer.
Duvall Mayor Will Ibershoff Hired John Pennington’s Mistress, a drunk pill popper
The City of Duvall released Lori Batiot’s Washington State Patrol record documenting that she was drunk at the time of a car accident; she blew a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .129 (between 6- 7 drinks), lied to Whatcom County Sheriff’s Officer, and she was on mental health pills Zoloft and Valium at the same time she was driving drunk.
Above are copies of Lori Batiot’s police report verifying everything we’ve written about her conduct being ” unbecoming” of any police officer.
Better question those of us involved in exposing corrupt public officers like Lori Batiot is whether she had a legally issued prescription for the anti-depressant and valium’s she was using at the time she was arrested for DUI.
According to Batiot’s police report, she was using valium to “relax” herself because of a dentist appointment. We’re not sure about our readers but we don’t know too many dentists who are open at 0145 am ( time of Batiot’s arrest).
This police report is also at least the 3rd public record where Batiot accuses a person of “stalking.” Seems like any time someone starts to uncover her crimes, she alleges “stalking.”
In the above record, it’s clear just based on Batiot’s BaC at the time of the her DUI arrest, she lied about the amount of alcohol she had just before driving and causing a major accident along I-5 ( Bellingham). She is “unfit” for public duty.
Our readers should note that Lori Batiot managed to get hired as a police officer from the City of Duvall after being fired for misconduct from the City of Ferndale and from the City of Brier. We have ample reason to believe that Lori Batiot managed to get hired in Duvall because that’s where her very very very good friend John E. Pennington lives.
According to the below public record, John Pennington enjoys taking naked showers with little girls. There is no evidence that John Pennington ever tried to Motion to Strike out this declaration, which would be pretty hard to do since the truth is an affirmative defense.
Further, public records from Duvall documents that John E. Pennington’s friend and Mayor Will Ibershoff hired Lori Batiot. Emails from John Pennington’s divorce files confirms that Mayor Ibershoff assisted John Pennington in removing his wife Anne as a duly elected council member ( which is alleged in a RICO suit to amount to extortion), after she fled Duvall for her life when John Pennington kicked and punched her just three weeks before the delivery of her daughter.
John Pennington, a source inside Snohomish County, used by several newspapers, managed to get news story in the Seattle Times about Anne Laughlin not being a resident of Duvall thus she had to resign. What the Times did not report was that John E. Pennington had just been charged with criminal assault of 3rd trimester pregnant woman and that was the reason Anne fled from Duvall ( temporarily seeking battered women’s shelter).
See more on ” The Stoning of Anne Laughlin” https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/16/the-city-of-duvalls-stoning-of-anne-laughlin/
Some of these issues we’ve researched and written about in this article was also exposed in “Kenyon Disend’s Dirty Bag of Secrets”
Kenyon Disend and all of its lawyers were contacted for comment but refused comment.
The Bellingham WA State Patrol DUI police report confirms our worst fears; the City of Duvall knew about Lori Batiot’s criminal history before she was hired, and we believe that this makes her unfit for public service. Popping pills while drunk driving at minimum should speak for itself.
Before Lori Batiot managed to obtain a job as a police officer, her work experience was that of a coffee Barista!
The City of Duvall’s employee file of Lori Batiot also supports that she has no college degree and was fired from the City of Ferndale and City of Brier.
We feel that her days as a coffee Barista and her affair ( as stated in her DUI arrest record) lead to her obtaining a job with the City of Ferndale. A job she was unqualified for but managed to obtain.
We have ample evidence to state that Lori Batiot was hired by the City of Duvall as a political favor to Snohomish County’s number one welfare recipient John E. Pennington.More that issue soon.
John Pennington often brags that he set up little RICO members inside government agencies to protect him from being charged with crimes. Police reports from the City of Duvall confirms that Lori Batiot ran criminal obstruction for John Pennington anytime someone filed a criminal complaint against him.
Thus, the Gold Bar Reporters add one more cockroach to our list of public officials who need a hell of a lot of sunshine. As such, we will continue to post records relating to Lori Batiot’s misconduct so long as she’s a public official.
As former Washington State attorney general Rob McKenna nicely argued in Referendum 71, all public officers are subject to public scrutiny, or as Justice Scalia said “the fact is that running a democracy takes a certain amount of civic courage. And the First Amendment does not protect you from criticism or even nasty phone calls when you exercise your political rights to legislate, or to take part in the legislative process.”
Whether it’s a police officer, public official, politician, or a former Mayor of Gold Bar who is responsible for over $200,000 missing from Gold Bar’s water fund, to allow a person in a position of power to retaliate against a well respected news source would mean that I condone such criminal behavior from our public officials. Simply put, I do not and will not.
Citizens are the checks and balances to a clean government. It’s our responsibly to expose corrupt public officials regardless of the personal cost to one’s self. Justice has no borders, has no price tag. Corruption harms all of us and must be exposed regardless of the personal cost to one’s self.
Thomas Jefferson said ” the highest form of patriotism is dissent.” This doesn’t mean that I believe our entire system is corrupt. I do not.
As an idealist who believes that our courts are simply one prong to a healthy democracy. But lately they are failing to uphold the laws instead are hiding public officials crimes. So it’s up to “we the people” to be the guarders of public agency employees we created and who are paid with the public’s trust. It’s we the people that must protect the First Amendment from all invaders. Police officers are no exception, and yesterday, the Washington State Supreme Court agreed with us. Requesting access to public records, especially emails, is our statutory right.
After reviewing some of King County Detective Coblantz’s records as well as Kenyon Disend’s contract attorney Sandra Sullivan (Meadowcraft) records. I believe we unearthed another dirty cop and attorney who spit on basic constitutional principles that I love more than life itself. Thus, I cannot turn a blind eye, especially after Coblantz caused an honest taxpaying citizen to be physically raped for a dirty cop from Duvall.
To turn a blind eye when a wrong has been committed against any person for simply exercising First Amendment rights is not something that I can do.
One must wonder whether or not police departments are hiring officers with a high school diploma or high school dropouts. The City of Duvall not only hired uneducated cops but also corrupt cops convicted of DUI who have been fired from two other City’s for misconduct.
For those of you who have past criminal convictions, enjoy filing false reports, enjoy having extramarital affairs with city residents, and no college degree, You should inquire within the City of Duvall at http://www.duvallwa.gov/jobs.aspx.
I feel fortunate to have been raised in a “free speech” zone, and most of all I am thankful to Thomas Jefferson for bringing the First Amendment back with him from Europe.
As new public records come out involving corrupt officers, I promise my readers they will be posted.
John Pennington (prime suspect in the rape of a 5 year old) , Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005), and Lori Batiot ( corrupt Duvall WA cop)
Correction: We originally posted that corrupt Duvall Police Officer Lori Batiot was fired from Bellingham. This was a clerical error. Batiot was arrested for drunk driving in Bellingham, but fired for conduct unbecoming of a police officer in the City of Ferndale.
City Brier PRR click to the left to view Drunk Driving report from WA State Patrol from City of Brier.
What’s most interesting about the above public records is that the above reports documents that anytime corrupt Duvall police officer Lori Batiot gets caught committing crimes, she alleges ” stalking.” Or as we correctly report ” The little damsel in distress ploy.”
