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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


 

Injustice for one, is injustice for all

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

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

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

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

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

 

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 


 

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

 Mark Roe Pic

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Rape in Monroe Washington High School, ignored by Dawson Place

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

RCW 36.27.020- Prosecutor’s Duties.

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Snohomish County Washington, fixing cases to ensure convictions

"Fighting corruption is not just good governance. Its self-defense. It's patriotism." Joe Biden 


Hitler Sign

Nazi Germany, “alive and well inside Washington State” 

Nazi law and order was predicated on the idea that all individuals shall be subordinate to the state. Adolf Hitler enacted strict laws prohibiting political opposition, and free speech. It was Hitler who decided what societal norms were, and it was he who outlawed any behavior he deemed as ‘anti-social behaviors’’, including alcoholism, drug addiction, begging, promiscuity, political dissent, prostitution and homosexuality.


Snohomish County Defenders Association, throwing cases gaining political favor

The Snohomish County Public Defenders Association clams to be a non-profit 501(3)(c).   It’s director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law office of Anderson Hunter in Everett.  Ms. Norris is married to a Washington State Court of Appeals Division I Judge Robert Leach.  With no surprise, Robert Leach was also a partner at Anderson Hunter law firm in Everett.

Anderson Hunter law firm has one of the largest civil defense contracts with Snohomish County, its managing partner is G. Geoffrey Gibbs, a Pro Tem Snohomish County Commissioner, and a person who manages the financials ( 18 million annually) for the Washington State Bar Association.

So this means, Vicki Norris, is not only the Director of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association, she is also a civil defense contractor to provide a legal defense when Snohomish County gets sued for malicious prosecution.

Imagine this.  You’re charged with a crime inside Snohomish County Washington. You’re poor and cannot afford a lawyer. Snohomish County refers you to a taxpayer funded public defender, whose director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law firm of Anderson Hunter Snohomish County’s largest contractor providing civil defense.

So not only does the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association rely on government money for its existence, it’s Director, a managing partner, is also receiving money from the County to defend against lawsuits filed against the County for civil rights violations.

If that’s not bad enough, you also learn that Vicki Norris’s husband is a Court of Appeals Division One Judge, whose friends inside Court of Appeals Division One will influence your appeal, whether criminal or civil.

a dishonest scheme; a fraud, throwing cases for political and financial favors are just a few words that come to mind, when I think of Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.


First Step to Throwing a Case, Deal or No Deal

When I think of our criminal justice system, I think of a game show, Deal or No Deal. It’s a television game show that revolves around the opening of a set of numbered briefcases, each of which contains a different prize (cash or otherwise). The contents (i.e. $$ amount) of all of the cases are known at the start of the game, but the specific location of any prize is unknown. The contestant claims (or is assigned) a case to begin the game. The case’s value is not revealed until the conclusion of the game.  Technically, the game is stacked against the player ( the accused).

mtgrsfordummiesa2016

The analogy here is simple; when the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association and its managing directors’ hold the largest contracts with Snohomish County justice is perverted, and cases are thrown as political favors, and financial rewards ( contracts), resulting in justice being perverted in favor of the almighty dollar.

One such case thrower is attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz.


 

Former Washington Post Watergate reporter Bob Woodward was right, ” follow the money.”


 

In the middle of 2016, I began investigating a simple criminal misdemeanor case involving a seventy-year old petite nurse, who is alleged to have assaulted a neighbor.  The neighbor stands almost six feet tall, weighs well over two-hundred fifty pounds, and just happens to be the tenant of Anderson Hunter’s managing partner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who if you remember is also a Snohomish County Commissioner.

In Judge Downes’s warped sense of justice, exercising your legal right to challenge corruption is worthy of a $70,000 SLAPP fine, especially when doing so involves suing his good friend and County commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

In 2011, G. Geoffrey Gibbs was being sued by the seventy year old nurse for infringing on her property.  At the same time, Gibbs’s tenant who lives next door to the nurse alleges that she was assaulted by the nurse.

First point of order, the alleged victim goes to court for restraining order. DENIED. So when the restraining order didn’t work, G. Geoffrey Gibbs sends an email to Everett city attorney and his personal golf buddy Michael Fisher and says ” charge her anyways so she will have to expend a large retainer…”

Imagine, your claiming you’re a victim of crime, you go to court seeking a restraining order, the judge denies your request, basically stating there’s nothing here. Then, your landlord, who just happens to be a county commissioner write to the Prosecutor, who happens to be his golf buddy, and you’re then charged with assault. It’s now six years later, and her case is still pending.

What caught my attention about this case was a just two years out of law school Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz was acting as a ” Pro Tem Judge.”

As an investigative journalist with a Juris Doctorate degree here in Washington State, I remember saying ‘what makes a recent law school graduate qualified to serve as a judge?”

US House of Representative House Speaker Tip O’Neil once said ” all politics is local.”  This famous quote leads me to believe what US House Speaker Tip O’Neil meant was all things in our lives are affected by local politics.  But instead of paying attention to local politics, which is the hot bed for corruption, our duopoly, Democrats v Republicans, or our so called democracy  have Americans fighting over abortion, welfare, and guns.

Reporter Bob Woodward came up with an easy solution to uncovering corruption, “Follow the money.”  Under Woodward’s general principles  of ” follow the money”, corruption equates to money, political influence in exchange for political favors, this here in Snohomish County equates to fixing cases to gain a financial benefit.

After watching Everett Municipal Court maliciously prosecute a 70 year old nurse with no prior criminal history, I began investigating Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz for corruption.

Sadly, I write in remembrance of my Constitutional law and ethics Professor who said ” Our criminal justice is failing. Anne, I know you’re going to instigate change where change is needed ( boy was that an understatement). This generation cares nothing about the rights of the accused…” At the time, I had just completed a Juris Doctorate degree and had no idea what he meant, but thanks to attorney Jason Schwarz, I do now.

Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz “the bigger lawyer looser” 

 

For Snohomish County Defendant Jerry Bogart, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Office failed to disclose to Jerry Bogart that Snohomish County Sheriff’s investigator David Fontenot is a known Brady Cop guilty of excess of force and terminated as a result.

But this story didn’t end here.  In 2016, at the bequest of another blogger who couldn’t attend another trial, Brady Cop David Fontenot was the investigator on another case involving a mother of five, a small business owner, with no prior criminal history, named Lori Shavlik.

Soon after hearing of Ms. Shavlik, I started sifting through her files, learning quickly that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office not only failed ( really hid) to disclose information it had in its possession as it relates to Brady Cop David Fontenot,  he was also a witness against her and allowed to assist the Snohomish County Prosecutor during trial.  This in front the jury; in criminal cases all witnesses are supposed to be sequestered.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik a jury acquitted her of all charges, seeing through the countless fabricated evidence and false testimony presented by Brady Cop David Fontenot in her case.

Snohomish County Prosecutors’ ignore the constitutional rights of defendants, spit on Brady v Maryland like its a piece of toilet paper, and have rigged Snohomish County’s criminal justice system against defendants by contracting with one law firm, claiming falsely that Snohomish County Public Defenders’ Association is not a public agency and its managing partners from Anderson Hunter, for the delivery of legal services.

This conduct reeks of Sherman Anti-Trust issues, another topic for another day. However, public defender and Washington State attorney Jason Schwarz is team player inside what I consider to be gross Sherman Anti-trust violations and a racketeering scheme, fixing cases to ensure convictions.


“When honor and the Law no longer stand on the same side of the line, how do we choose[?]”  Anne Bishop

In 2016, the Honorable Justice Alex Kozinski held in the Joshua Frost case, said King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office violated a rule requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand.”

Justice Kozinski said the prosecution’s tactic were deliberate, and not an oversight. The County Prosecutor’s public records officer Kelli Williams kept Shaw’s signed plea agreements secret until two days after Frost was convicted and the office stonewalled in providing Frost this information when he doggedly requested it.

But the truth is, King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure conviction is governed by Association of Washington Cities (AWC).   AWC insures almost all public defenders, counties, cities, and its employees here in Washington State.

A few weeks ago attorney Jeffrey S. Myers, said ” We cannot settle this suit because Anne Block requested records and would benefit financially.  We will not let her win.”  Jeff  S. Myers, an attorney with Lyman, Daniel, Kamerrer, and Bogdanovich, is a contractor for AWC, located in Tumwater Washington.

Snohomish County and its contractors such as Snohomish County Public Defenders Association are all members of AWC.

So imagine, not only are you using a public defender whose managing director is a managing partner in Snohomish County’s largest civil defender law firm of Anderson Hunter, and Snohomish County government are insured through AWC.


Throwing cases, AWC style 

080372p06055w

The hand shaking brings me back to attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz throwing the Jerry Bogart case in exchange for political influence, and government contracts.  A few months ago, an objective observer witnessed Jason Schwarz bragging to another person how after the Bogart case he was setting up his own private practice.  One source claims that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office as a reward plans to divert public defense monies his way, because Schwarz helped the Prosecution throw cases. Bogart was no different.

On November 22, 2017, I witnessed attorney Jason Schwarz put his client Jerry Bogart on the stand, having him testify against himself.  From any objective observer, it was clear that Jerry Bogart’s IQ is less than 75, thus in my opinion he was not able to fully comprehend the charges against him. Hence why Bogart was assigned counsel.

Looking through parts of the Bogart files, it’s clear that the Prosecutor did not have a case, unless Bogart admitted guilt.  As a result, Jason Schwarz needed to convince Bogart into testifying. However, Jason Schwartz and the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office had one problem, Washlite Board member and local activist Lori Shavlik had been visiting inmates in the County jail trying to get the word out about the county’s undisclosed Brady Cop David Fontenot.

As an activist interested only in justice, Ms. Shavlik was handing over Brady Cop Fontenot’s criminal history files over to defense attorneys and inmate, while I was emailing judges informing them of Brady Cop Fontenot, placing Fontenot’s files into the public record forever. This resulted in Jason Schwarz and Snohomish County restricting inmates from having Lori Shavlik on its visitors list.

Obviously when defendants have information that leans in their favor, and withheld in violation of Our Supreme Court’s holding in Brady v Maryland, they tend to say wait a minute, not so fast. Jerry Bogart was no match for attorney Jason Schwarz, and since Lori Shavlik had been restricted from visiting inmates, Jerry Bogart was left to rely on attorney Jason Schwarz.

According to Jerry Bogart’s family, attorney Jason Schwarz relentlessly convinced him to testify against himself.  Why, because the Prosecutor’s Office had nothing, and Schwartz needs legal contracts to set up his private practice.

As one can imagine, Jerry Bogart, a man with a very low IQ, at the relentless urging of his defense attorney Jason Schwarz testified against himself.  On November 22, 2017, Ms. Shavlik and I popped into Judge Janice Ellis’s courtroom and witnessed, in part, Bogart’s testimony. if Jason Schwartz conduct wasn’t bad enough, I sat, in tears, watching Judge Janice Ellis standing up just aside the jury box, as Bogart testified, nodding her head up and down, in agreement, when the Prosecutor questioned Jerry Bogart.

 

What Lori Shavlik and I witnessed Judge Janice Ellis do was commit egregious judicial misconduct, ensuring conviction of man, with a low IQ, one has to wonder if he even understood or could fully grasped the charges that were lodged against him.

After public defender Jason Schwartz had Jerry Bogart testify against himself, the jury only spent two hours to issue a conviction on all counts. After the jury was released,  Lori Shavlik and I spoke to several jurors who told us ” Bogart testified against himself and gave the Prosecutor what they needed to convict”  another said ” Not sure why Bogart testified  because up until then the Prosecutor had nothing” and another said ” I don’t care.”

Judge Janice Ellis’s judicial misconduct will be forever imprinted in my head, and leaves me struggling to sleep at night.

Both Jason Schwartz and Judge Janice Ellis were contacted for comment. As of today both have refused comment.

 

I agree with the Honorable 9th Justice Alex Kozinski, we have a major problem inside our so called criminal justice system.

Until the federal courts start enforcing 1983, RICO, and Sherman Anti – Trust violations, as illustrated herein, I shall not be part of this disordered system either.

Case Number: 23497

As new cases are entered against each “public criminal” we will post the case numbers

 


 

 

In 2014 and 2016, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe maliciously prosecuted a married mother of four, a successful small business owner, and a strong community leader, Lori Shavlik.

Mark Roe maliciously prosecuted Lori Shavlik with the assistance of a dirty dishonest Brady Cop, David Fontenot and crooked dishonest Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam  “cockroach” Cornell.

Brady Cop David Fontenot is a man who Mark Roe has a personal relationship with inside and outside the office, both engaged in a little too much marijuana toking.

Adam Cornell is a licensed Washington State Bar member involved in “moonlighting” on the county’s dime helping two non-profit groups operate while being paid with Snohomish County taxpayer money to act as prosecutor.


Snohomish County’s fraud upon the taxpayers, using Dawson Place


roe_mark_k_spamkr

Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecutor, charged with countless malicious prosecutions, Snohomish County paid out millions to cover up Mark Roe’s racketeering crimes against citizens. 


When Snohomish County resident Lori Shavlik’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 Ms. Shavlik 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) and Mark Roe,  receives 77 % of its money from the public funds, and the Board is controlled by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Sheriff Ty Trenary. Both serve as high ranking members of the Dawson Place Board.

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

Lori Shavlik 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, Ms. Shavlik is not asking Dawson Place for resources for her daughter, she’s demanding the school rapist be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But little did she know that the people who were taking her criminal complaints against those same public officials from the Monroe High School were Ken Hoover’s friends inside Snohomish County Sheriff Office and at the Prosecutor’s Office.

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 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 Ms. Shavlik’s daughter, Dawson Place along with Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Mark Roe and Adam Cornell trumped up criminal 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, David Fontenot.

See http://snocoreporter.com/mark-roe-turn-rock-music-put-bong-follow-brady-v-maryland/ )

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know Ms. Shavlik 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 in Snohomish County,  a friend, a freedom fighter, an activist, and person who doesn’t take no for an answer especially when it involves her children.

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.”

Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell openly brag that they started Dawson Place but yet they claim its a private non-profit. Only one problem for the co-conspirators, Dawson Place received over 15 million dollars from an interlocal  agreements with various cities.  Those pesky public records tell us a lot and confirm that Dawson Place is a public agency, but has been hiding accountability behind the false guise of a non-profit.


Here’s a  public post, Posted by Gary O’Rielly on Sep 15, 2015

 

Our guest speaker this past week was Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney and his favorite topic was Dawson Place which he helped create. Mark Roe is passionate about taking care of victims of crime. Something he learned early from his older sister. He was in junior high & high school when his sister was a prosecutor in King County. When she talked about her job as prosecutor, she was so proud of the work that she did that the impact on young Mark was immediate. Mark is probably the only law student in his class that went to law school to become a prosecutor. He started in district court, followed by handling misdemeanors and on up to Felony Crime Division.

 Mark talked a lot about bullying and the vulnerability of being bullied. It is shocking what he can do to you. Ironically, most of it comes from family members or boyfriends of the victim’s mothers. Reporting these crimes comes from many avenues. Many times, no one rallies around the bullied. Smaller children are unable of talking about their bullying experience out of fear. Seth Dawson, his former boss, was responsible for starting the first Child Advocacy Center in the state. Dawson did this after attending a conference on the program and process. Kids need consulting by child interview experts. The program wasn’t started until 2006. They used the “Field of Dreams” comment, “IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME”. It took a big leap in faith to begin the program. Dawson Place emerged with all of the necessary disciplines involved, again the first program in the state.

 

 

Kids think that they did something wrong. It’s their fault….Janice Ellis was the Snohomish County Prosecutor when the state and county found a building and it continues as a work in progress but with a very successful return on investment. The medical room is kid friendly and each child gets a first rate medical exam. From an early experience with their first child who threw a sticky hand upon the ceiling, the ceiling is now covered with sticky hands. Dawson Place is a non-profit entity. As Mark says, IT IS OUR CENTER. Mark helped start Dawson Place in 2006…. Thank you Mark for telling us about Dawson Place.


Adam-Cornell-hi-res

Adam Cornell, involved in countless malicious prosecutions in Snohomish County Washington; also brags to be a founder of Dawson Place. 

Since 2002, Cornell has been a deputy prosecuting attorney in Snohomish County. He is currently district court supervisor at the Prosecutor’s Office, supervising 14 deputy prosecuting attorneys. Cornell was one of the first deputies assigned to Everett’s Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, where child interview specialists conduct forensic interviews of children aged 3 to 17 at the request of any law enforcement agency. …


Thank you Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell for telling us how Dawson Place got started and that Dawson Place is really a public agency subject to the Washington State Public Records Act.


Malicious Prosecutions of Honest Harding Working Citizens, Mark Roe’s retaliatory and malicious Prosecutions, “making criminals out of non-criminals” Snohomish County Washington Style


A story the Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on with the following article:

The Dishonorable Mark Roe

 

roe_mark_k_spamkr

Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecutor


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.

Source: https://www.kent.ac.uk/psychology/fipmo/documents/female-arsonists.pdf

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.

HeartValentines-Day-Clip-Art-Cupid-1


 

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.

cockroachcockroachcockroachcockroachcockroachcockroachcockroach

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 

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

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.

It will give us great pleasure to finally shed much needed sunlight on what’s not happening on behalf of children like Lori Shavlik’s daughter inside Dawson Place.

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

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.

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.   

Thank you retired USPS Postmaster, you’re a fine lady


Coming soon, more public records on corrupt cops, Batiot and Coblantz


Colbtanz (3)74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03Batoit

corrupt cops from City of Shoreline, Cary Coblantz, and Duvall cop, Lori Batiot, caught via public records (RCW 42.56) in a RICO scandal

This report is just the tip of iceberg, because over the last four weeks we’ve had three Washington State Whistleblowers give us mounds of evidence documenting that Snohomish County Prosecutors and corrupt cops, one from City of Shoreline and other from the City of Duvall, are involved in the largest RICO scandal in Washington State’s history.

WA Court of Appeals Judge Marlin Appelwick’s emails calls into question every case involving Snohomish County

” Who let the pigs out? Welcome to Snohomish County Washington.”

For my readers;  those who know me pretty well know that I have spent my entire adult life fighting for the rights of the abused, poor, sick, disabled, and wrongfully accused. So when I saw the below email clearly calling into question every single case that involves Washington Court of Appeals Division I Judge Marlin Appelwick, I couldn’t turn a blind eye.

Judge Marlin Appelwick is a personal friend of Snohomish County Executive John Lovick and his email below to Snohomish County Executive John Lovick calls into every single case, criminal and civil, that Appelwick participated in since May 2013 ( when Lovick was sworn in as Executive).

When there’s a personal relationship between a Judge and the leader of Snohomish County, Recusal is not only expected, but should be mandatory (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judicial_disqualification), unless You live in Washington State.

Below is a copy of an email sent to me by another reporter late yesterday.


John,

 My heart felt congratulations on becoming the executive.   You have always impressed me with your demeanor and abilities.  The county is in good hands, my friend.

 

Judge Marlin J. Appelwick

Court of Appeals, Division I

600 University, 26th Floor

Seattle, WA  98101-4170

206-389-3926


This email above calls into question every case Judge Marlin Appelwick participated in involving Snohomish County in any way. Also, since Judge Marlin Appelwick is a sitting Judge in Washington Court of Appeals Division I, that’s a hell of a lot of cases, including criminal cases, because Skagit, King, San Juan and Snohomish Counties are the only districts inside Washington Court of Appeals Division One.

Friends have no business sitting in on cases involving a friend; using Marlin Appelwick’s own words above.

Better question is: how many cases did Marlin Appelwick make any decision on when Snohomish County was the Appellant or Defendant?   Now one might say, well we can’t expect Judges not to have friends. However, when a person’s liberty is at stake, there are NO EXCEPTIONS! 

Our readers can only speculate as to how many innocent defendants never received a fair trail and are sitting in jail because of Judge Marlin Appelwick’s personal relationship to Snohomish County’s political bums.

With Marlin Appelwick’s personal friendship to Snohomish County’s John Lovick, Geoffrey Gibbs, and John E. Pennington, now exposed, it’s no wonder why Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was bragging that he had the courts in his pocket.


WHO JUDGE MARLIN APPELWICK IS CONNECTED TO INSIDE SNOHOMISH COUNTY FOR CERTAIN

Snohomish County Executive John Lovick ( as evidenced by the email above)

Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs ( see http://snocoreporter.com).

Law Firm of Ogden Murphy Wallace, P.L.L.C. ( law firm was also cited with Gibbs, Ogden, and Appelwick for lobbying violations), and

John E. Pennington, an uneducated political left over from disgraced Executive Aaron Reardon’s trash can, who caused the deaths of 43 residents in the Oso Washington mudslide debacle ( a source once close to John E. Pennington stated that Pennington and Appelwick were fairly close friends while in the Legislature).

Judge Appelwick was contacted for comment. If he does, his comments as it relates to this story will be posted without edit.


The list above is not an all inclusive list, so if Our readers have any other names of political scum that You know are directly connected to any politician inside Skagit, Snohomish, San Juan, or King Counties here in Washington, please send your tips to GoldBarReporter@Comcast.net

Anyone who would like to contact Judge Marlin Appelwick can do so at J_M.Appelwick@courts.wa.gov

But our readers can rest assure that every single case Appelwick has been involved in relating in any way to the politicians herein are being researched, so stay tuned.
