Kara Vandereyk was engaging in sexual acts with the pit bull in full view of neighbors

In an arrest report released Wednesday, police said they were called to a home in the 300 block of N. 16th Street, where 23-year-old Kara Vandereyk was engaging in sexual acts with the animal in full view of neighbors.

Police said the woman stood-up and greeted officers with a “Hi”. Vandereyk appeared to be under the influence of drugs or was mentally ill, according to the report.

Police said she could not identify herself and was unable to answer questions about the current date or name of the President of the United States. Vandereyk is quoted in the report telling officers, “I’m bipolar.” She also admitted to taking prescription medication but was not sure if she was on them at the time, police said. Vandereyk is charged with open and gross lewdness.

The canine was taken into the custody of Animal Control.

brian sandoval proclamationThe spell-check function in Gov. Brian Sandoval’s office apparently has a racy sense of humor.

A staff member who authored a gubernatorial proclamation declaring this week state employee appreciation week, misspelled the word “cultural” in describing the work state employees do to protect “cultural resources.”

The result: the proclamation honored a not-safe-for-work part of the female anatomy.

To be fair, the governor’s office is busy with his trade mission to Canada this week. The typo slipped through and the proclamation was distributed to some state employees and eventually wound up on the social media site imgur.com.

The governor’s office regrets the error.”This document included an embarrassing typographical error,” Sandoval said. “I sincerely apologize for this mistake, and take full responsibility. It won’t happen again.”

Corrupt Kenny Furlong 2014 candidate for Sheriff

In Nevada you can still vote for “none of the above”.

DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS GUY.

Kenny Furlong is not open and transparent. In fact, Furlong’s office is directly not returning calls to the media about the judge John Tatro shooting incident where the shooter made a jailhose confession.

He said the sheriff’s office has faced some significant events during this term in office — chief among them the shootings at IHOP. He said he thinks his leadership has enabled the department to meet those challenges “with efficiency and extreme effectiveness.”

Furlong said his tenure has featured programs designed to target gang activity and drug use as well as underage drinking.

He said he has maintained an open administration, frequently patrolling the streets and listening to the needs of the community. Furlong said he has worked closely with city government to achieve results and helped create critical data systems to base resource allocation on factual information.

Furlong said he believes strongly in public contact, saying, “the continuous exchange of information serves as a basis for an effective and efficient law enforcement agency.”

He said programs such as Drug Abuse Resistance Education, citizen academies, anti-gang and expanded regional cooperation have all have helped with crime prevention, as have events such as Cops and Kids Dinner, Open House Kids Street Fair, National Night Out and the Extreme Motor Challenge.

He said he wants to begin new initiatives he hopes will being more benefits including giving those with mental health obstacles a stronger protective role in Carson City schools and creating a permanent fixture in the sheriff’s office for alternative juvenile discipline and beginning a rural open space patrol.

Furlong, a Carson City native, graduated from Carson High in 1975. He retired from the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations in 1998. He was a detective sergeant with the Department of Public Safety’s Major Crimes Unit before being elected sheriff in 2002. He is seeking his fourth four-year term.

Furlong is married and has two children and two grandchildren.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny furlong needs to be asked the real questions. This guy and his deputies arecorrupt as hell and the Sheriff is one big RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) operation. Please read the circa 2006 Topox called “Corrupt Law enforcement in Carson City Nevada” by Patty Pruett, Dayton Nevada.  We’ll post some of the text at the bottom of this story.  We also uncovered a Grand Jury investigation suggestion ALL CARSON CITY SHERIFF personnel should be DRUG TESTED.

Some of this may seem outlandish until you remember these things happened in 1989 South Lake Tahoe when thecity mayor named Terry Trupp was busted for a major cocaine trafficking cartel and just recently Johnny Poland of the SLTPD was hooked up on charges of obstructing justice, evidence tampering and aiding and embedding the “Mexican Moffia” in South Lake Tahoe.See our other website at http://SLTPDwatch.wordpress.com

Kenny will you do a show with us and our video cameras? …And why did you come into my cell two times and give me a “stink eye” death look? Is it true what you deputies are saying about you?

Published on Mar 26, 2013 Watch Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong answer important questions from some influential women in our community

 Kenny Furlong stated his position on “gun control” where he did elaborate that because of the Ihop shootings, he would be compelled to confiscate firearms in Carson City, NV. Although, he believes it won’t happen and he was primary focused on multi-round auto and semi-auto firearms.

Gun Control at 20:00 – Kenny wants to ban weapons (at least assault style weapons) because of the Ihop incident. In that case a Norinco MAK90 was modified from semi to fully auto. Other Sheriff Associations from around the State of Nevada and the rest of the union are fully supporting the US Constitution and 2nd amendment rights, Sheriff Furlong is not.

Below are Nevada Sheriffs that support gun rights:

  1. Ed Kilgpore Humboldt NV
  2. Benjamin D. Trotter Churchill NV
  3. Tony DeMeo Nye NV

methadoneSo, Kenny what’s the Sheriff’s role in alleged distribution with meth, heroin and other drugs and drug dealers in Carson City?

Is your daughter Kendra Furlong fully recovered from her battles with crank (meth) addiction?

kenny furlong

Sheriff Furlong and Kendra Furlong – Crystal Darkness

Is the Sheriff office under any investigations? Rumors are rampant that federal grand money is “missing”? We heard the FBI was investigation misappropriation of funds related to Kenny Furlong using the Carson City “credit card” to pay for friends vehicles impounds after DUI’s (which were covered up)… Is this true?

We hear of many “cover ups” and other “scandals” concerning the Carson City Sheriff’s department including last years incident with former NDOT Director, Susan Martinovich where it’s alleged the Sheriff covered up that factSusan Martinovich essentially was involved in a  “hit and run” and the victim was actually charged with trumped up charges that were later dropped. This seems like a blatant attempt to cover-up Susan Martinovich’s criminal involvement in that incident, correct?

Kenny Furlong, you did go to Carson City High School, correct (you talk about that in carson high schoolthe video).  Interesting thatSusan Martinovich and Justice of the Peace Judge John Tatro all went to the same High School and played significant roles in the hit and run coverup. What’s your take on that Furlong?

Kenny Furlong and Neil Rombardo gay?

In recent photo shots, you Kenny furlong seem to hanging out with Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo a lot. We’ve seen you dancing with the stars along with Neil Rombardo and giving blood with him as well. Are you gay? What exactly is your “friendship” with Neil Rombardo? Seems like there should be a better “separation of power” in such a small incestuous little city like Carson.

We hear of food poisoning and unsafe and inhumane conditions and treatment of inmates at your Carson City jail. We note that statistics show 20% of incarcerated people are actually innocent. Regardless of innocence or guilt, the facts show that there are a high number of alleged “suicides” hangingthat occur in the Carson City jail. Released inmates report tainted food with drugs including methadone. The showers have excessive mold and airborne insects and diseases like MRSA skin infection is rampant in the Carson City jailhouse. We hear that a medical malpractice and civil rights lawsuit is imminent against you and the Carson City court system including Judge John Tatro…

What exacly is Kenny Furlong’s position on gun owners rights? We understand he agrees with the Obama administration.

Finally, with all this controversy, what are your plan Kenny Furlong for the future? Do you plan on staying in law enforcement or are you getting your affairs in order to go to prison?

Daniel Gonzales runs for Carson City Sheriff 2014

Daniel Gonzales runs for Carson City Sheriff 2014

Carson City Sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Gonzales announced Wednesday his candidacy for sheriff of Carson City.

Gonzales says he is running for sheriff with the goal of increasing integrity, transparency and accountability in the Sheriff’s Office, as well as restructuring the department to put more officers on patrol and use monies to better protect and serve Carson City and its residents.

Also in the race are incumbent Sheriff Ken Furlong and Carson City Sheriff’s Office Deputy Don Gibson.

“It’s important that we have the best people protecting our families and children in Carson City,” said Gonzales in a news release. “I will make the safety of our community my top priority if elected to Carson City Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Office is not evolving, due to insular decision making and a lack of outside input and perspective.”

Gonzales said he would raise standards for training of deputies and reserve deputies, so they are better equipped to respond to all situations. Gonzales said he would raise hiring and promotion standards to insure the most qualified applicants serve the department.

If elected, Gonzales said he is committed to upgrading technology to make it easier to report crimes, investigate crimes and share information with the public; allowing for faster response times.

“We need to focus on integrity, transparency and accountability in Carson City law enforcement,” Gonzales said. “I support creating the Office of Professional Standards and Integrity to ensure this department and our staff are held to the highest standards because that’s what the residents of Carson City deserve.”

Gonzales said he is committed to increasing efficiency and will work to eliminate redundant and unnecessary positions.

“I have already identified over $600,000 in funds that I will reorganize in the budget to get more deputies out on the streets to keep our communities safe from drugs and gangs” said Gonzales.

With these re-allocated funds he would collaborate with the Board of Supervisors to create a new investigator position to focus on crimes against children, elder abuse and elder exploitation cases. In addition Gonzales said he is dedicated to making schools safer and providing safety education to students.

Among his plans for schools, Gonzales’ agenda includes adding two new school resource deputies to the middle schools with some of his re-allocated budget. The deputies sole responsibilities would be to serve at our schools.

Gonzales said he would also dedicate deputies to a full-time traffic management team, whose primary function will be traffic enforcement and education. Gonzales wants to implement a Teen Distracted Driving Program. This program is an opportunity to educate new drivers and their parents to clearly understand their responsibility when a teenager starts to drive. This class would cover traffic laws, the provisional license restrictions and safety education.

Gonzales has written numerous grants for the Sheriff’s Office which total more than $450,000, which went towards gang suppression, digital forensics equipment, Youth Alcohol Enforcement, youth services, drug interdiction operations and safety equipment, according to the news release.

Gonzales has a long history of excellence within the Carson City Sheriff’s Office and strong commitment to public safety having served the citizens of Carson City for over 10 years. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2005, Deputy of the Year in 2009 and was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal in 2011. Gonzales has devoted his career to making Carson City a safer community.

Gonzales has been on the Department’s Gang unit, SET team, Field Training Officer, Explorer Executive Advisor, SWAT / Sniper, Detective, Hostage Negotiator – team leader, For 6 years Gonzales has written and coordinated the Department’s Enforcement of Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) grant.

According to the news release, he educates persons responsible for serving alcohol and reduces the availability of alcohol to our youth. Gonzales also conducts enforcement operations that include business compliance checks, targets youth DUI enforcement and shoulder taps. In 2009, because of his team’s efforts, the Department was recognized nationally as the Agency of the year. Gonzales also coordinates the Departments Crisis Intervention Team.

Since 2006, Gonzales has taught sheriff’s deputies and other local law enforcement agencies, crisis intervention training, known as “CIT,” this 45 hour program focuses on first-responder officers who receive specialized training geared to meet the needs of the mentally ill.

Gonzales currently coordinates mental health services in the detention center. He has developed a community resources guide and resource bags that all sergeants can use after hours, when a person may be in crisis. Because of Gonzales’ efforts and achievements he received the “Intervention of the Year” award from the National Alliance on mental illness.

Gonzales earned his college degree from Western Nevada College in 2008 and received his Advanced POST certificate in 2009. He has been married for over 8 years to his wife Meliah and they have three young children.

“I look forward to earning this community’s support, Gonzales said. “As this campaign continues, I encourage you to contact me directly” at 775-220-1195 or email me at Daniel@Danielforsheriff.com.

Don Gibson filed his candidacy Friday for Carson City Sheriff. He is a lifelong resident of Carson City and has seen positive change throughout the years.

Having been in law enforcement for over 16 years Gibson said he has the demonstrative ability and necessary leadership skills to administer the office of sheriff. His team would continue Carson City’s positive change and he will “always strive to improve the quality of life for all of us.”

Gibson said professionalism, compassion and sincerity are all paramount when handling community affairs.

Gibson said the line staff are the one’s responsible for handling the community’s needs. He said he will re-focus the internal drug unit to combat drug dealers using long term investigative tactics. He said he will implement a Sheriff’s Town Hall program so the residents of Carson City can bring concerns and solutions to his attention.

Former Deputy DA Jason Woodbury says he’s running for Carson City District Attorney against corrupt assistant DA Mark Krueger.

Mark Kruger is currently employed by the corrupt Carson City DA Neil Rombardo:

Krueger is one of 10 Plaintiffs in a complaint filed in July against the Lyon County Commission, County Manager and Comptroller.  The complaint contests a recent decision by the County to freeze a 2.5-percent merit pay hike for certain non-union employees.  (See related stories on NewsDesk below).  The complaint was filed through Krueger’s private Carson City practice.

Former Deputy DA Jason Woodbury says he’s running for Carson City District Attorney against corrupt assistant DA Mark Krueger.

“Being elected District Attorney of Carson City would fulfill a dream I have had since I first set foot in a courtroom,” said Woodbury, 41, in a news release. “This is my first run for office, and no one is going to mistake me for a smooth politician. My only campaign strategy is to give this community an honest, straightforward look at who I am and what I stand for. I hope once they see my experience and our common values, Carson City voters will be convinced I am the right choice for District Attorney.”

Carson City District Attorney Neil A. Rombardo said in September that he was not going to to run for re-election.

Woodbury has spent his entire legal career practicing in Carson City, beginning in 1998 when he was hired as law clerk for Judge Michael Griffin. He joined the Carson City District Attorney’s Office as a Deputy District Attorney from 1999 to 2003 before entering private practice.

Woodbury is a partner in the law firm Kaempfer Crowell, where he works primarily in civil litigation and criminal defense.

“My experience as a prosecutor is important — voters need to know they have a D.A. with the skill to enforce justice on behalf of the community. But that skill must be guided by seasoned judgment — the ability to recognize what justice is in a particular case and the background to calculate the most efficient and effective way to achieve that just result. During 10 plus years of private practice, I have represented businesses — from one person shops to the largest industries in Nevada. And I have represented individuals, including some charged with a criminal offense. My broad legal background would be a positive foundation for the Carson City District Attorney’s office,” Woodbury said in his news release.

Woodbury is a graduate of the University of Nevada in Reno, and completed law school at the University of Utah. He and his wife, Stacy, live in Carson City where they are raising three children.

“I am honored to have the support of many wonderful people who call Carson City home. I hope voters grant me an opportunity to serve this community which has been so good to me and my family,” Woodbury said.

The public is invited to a meet and greet Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Glen Eagles Restaurant.

15 years as assistant DA? He’s a career politician. Vote him out, we need fresh blood, not these already corrupted career criminals, oops I mean politicians. The whole country needs to do this from the city governments on up to Washington DC!

How about prosecute instead of “let’s make a deal”? Start by getting rid of the useless “Judge” Tatro who helps the criminal and screws the victim. Living in Carson City I have seen this many times. Tell us what we want to hear then do something completely different. Quit making the victim suffer by not making the criminal pay out the wazoo for once!

DA and Sheriff set poor example

by admin on August 20, 2012

Regardless of what results come of the suit filed by District Attorney Robert Auer, Assistant District Attorney Mark Krueger, Sheriff Allen Veil and associated parties, in light of Lyon County’s financial woes all those linked to the filing of this complaint look like whiney, vindictive vultures.

They are certainly not in tune or in spirit with the cooperative attitude demonstrated by the vast majority of County employees – Association and non-Association members.

As noted in a previous commentary, the County Commissioners, with the support of County Manager Jeff Page and County Comptroller Josh Foli, set aside funding in the 2012-13 budget to cover potential costs upon settlement of the Employees Association and Sheriff’s Employees Association contract negotiations.  Negotiations had not been finalized prior to the required submittal of the budget and the beginning of the 2012-13 fiscal year.

In the final agreements the Employee’s Association decided to forego the 2.5 percent merit increase.  The Sheriff’s Employees Association pushed for and received the 2.5 percent merit increase.  Certain non-Association employees (supervisory personnel) feel they should receive the benefits gained by the Sheriff’s Employees Association.

First, as noted in a previous commentary, for 30 years – since the inception of employee associations in Lyon County – non-association personnel have been granted the same benefits/lack of benefits that the Employees Association contract granted.  If the non-association members who now feel they should instead be receiving the same benefits/or lack of benefits as the Sheriff’s Association employees, one must ask:

WHY DID THEY WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE CONTRACTS WERE FINALIZED TO VOICE THEIR DISSATISFACTION?  WHY DID THEY NOT MAKE THEIR DESIRE CLEAR DURING THE BUDGET WORKSHOPS AND PRIOR TO NEGOTIATIONS?

This whole scenario sounds like, looks like, feels like – a gang of poor losers.   Their team did not win under the standing rules, so they now want to change the rules and the score to their benefit!

According to County Manager Page, the commission’s decision to freeze the merit pay increase for those non-union (supervisory) personnel listed as Plaintiff’s saves the County an additional $80,100; however, in order to defend the County’s position a good portion of this money may now be needed for legal assistance instead of being used to meet some of the County’s many pressing needs.  And, if the commission decision is overturned by the court, $80,100 will have to be taken from other budget needs in order to pay the 2.5 percent merit increase to those employees claiming they deserve it. Costs of the County defending itself are not covered under its liability insurance.

The Board of Commissioners on Thursday (August 16) authorized County Manager Page to hire an attorney.  The County has hired Madelyn Shipman of Laxalt – Nomura. Her contract rates are $200.00/hour for her; $175.00/hour for an assistant attorney (if needed); and, $100.00/hour for a paralegal (if needed).

In light of DA Robert Auer’s threat to take the issue to court if the 2.5 percent increase for certain employees was not approved, some may suggest the commission (3 of the 5 members, anyway) should have simply conceded to the demands and threats of the DA and Sheriff, given the employees the 2.5 –percent increase and saved the county the potential costs of defending itself and, potentially, losing in a court battle.

I do not agree with this “easy way out”.  There are times when the commission must stand their ground, follow good conscience and take the principled path.  Three members of the Lyon County Commission voted to take that path.

According to the website www.transparentnevada.com,  two of the highest paid employees in Lyon County are Plaintiffs District Attorney Robert Auer and Sheriff Allen Veil; however, their salaries, along with other elected County officials, are established according to State Legislative guidelines and are not affected by the commissioners’ ruling.

  • Robert Auer:   Base Pay – $124,642    Total Pay & Benefits – $162,518
  • Allen Veil:        Base Pay – $103,351    Total Pay & Benefits – $157,196

According to County records, the salaries of the other County employee Plaintiffs in the complaint filed against the County are:

  • Chief Deputy SO Joseph Sanford   Base Pay – $103,120          Total Pay & Benefits – $157,060
  • Chief Deputy DA Mark Krueger     Base Pay – $111,517          Total Pay & Benefits – $148,708
  • Captain SO Pat Soukup                    Base Pay – $89,509            Total Pay & Benefits – $137,841
  • Captain SO Albert Torres                Base Pay – $83,565            Total Pay & Benefits – $131,046
  • Asst. DA Damian Sinnott                 Base  Pay – $73,092             Total Pay & Benefits – $92,256
  • Vicki Foster (Dayton JC)                  Base Pay – $36,795            Total Pay & Benefits – $54,297
  • Misty Edelfson (Dayton JC)              Base Pay – $40,289              Total Pay & Benefits – $53,982
  • Sarah Miller (Walker JC)                Base Pay – $34,715            Total Pay & Benefits – $47,592

The responsibility for this fiasco lies entirely on the shoulders of the two elected department heads – District Attorney Robert Auer and Sheriff Allen Veil.  They both should be very aware of the County’s 30-year policy in regards to non-union/supervisory personnel and Association contracts.  It is their responsibility to inform their employees of that policy – not be the instigators of this formal Complaint.

Again, the vast majority of Lyon County employees, supervisory personnel and department heads should be loudly commended.  They have shown an exemplary sense of team play and sacrifice during these very difficult financial times.  Many have much to complain about in regards to their lack of pay increases, loss of staffing, over-burdening of duties, et al; however, in spite of these hardships and related stresses, they have done their best to be team players – in the best interests of their fellow employees and Lyon County residents.

Think about it.

A man known for protesting the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and charged with soliciting the murder of a judge in Nevada has been released from prison and his charges dismissed.

South Lake Tahoe resident Ty Robben was released last week after Douglas County, Nev., District Attorney Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation of murder charge, along with a charge of criminal libel — a charge that is not used in California.

Both the criminal libel and solicitation of murder charge concerned Judge John Tatro, Robben said. But, Robben told the Mountain Democrat, he was exercising his 1st Amendment rights for the first charge, and he was not soliciting anything on the second charge. Rather, another prisoner — while Robben, known as “Top Ramen” while incarcerated on the libel charge — propositioned him with a $5,000 “roofing job,” Robben said.

Jackson confirmed he dismissed the charges due to lack of evidence and unlikelihood of conviction. He also noted that the Carson City, Nev., DA’s Office was originally on the case, but was taken off due to having been named in a federal lawsuit Robben filed against them.

Robben credits his faith with seeing him through his time in prison. “My faith in the Lord got me through the darkest period in my life and I pray that I can start to forgive these people for the unforgivable acts of government retaliation using the criminal justice system after I had filed a federal lawsuit in Reno two weeks before I was arrested in California.”

Ty is this the end of this for you…for this subject? Are you moving on? Or are you still going forward with the federal lawsuit?

Douglas County District Attorney Mark Jackson, the special prosecutor named to handle the cases, previously dismissed libel and harassment charges.

He served notice Thursday that he was dropping the charge Ty Robben AKA “Top Ramen” (new ‘jail name’ obtained at the Carson City jailhouse since it sounds like his name) tried to hire a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Mark Jackson was brought in after the Carson City DA’s office was disqualified from handling the case.

“Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court,” Jackson said in a statement.

He said that means Robben’s $50,000 bail has been lifted, and all pending charges against him have been dismissed.

“It is my understanding that Mr. Robben is in the process of being released from the Carson City Jail,” Jackson said.

Robben stopped by the Tahoe Daily Tribune Friday and said he was hoping to restore his life and family. He thanked his attorneys for their work to get him released.

“Thank you to Mark Jackson for standing up and supporting the U.S. Constitution,” Robben said.

Two weeks ago, Jackson dismissed the other case against Robben, which accused him of libel and stalking and two counts of attempting to intimidate Tatro and his family.

He did so stating that Nevada’s libel law was “unconstitutionally vague.” The stalking charge, he said, simply didn’t have enough evidence to support it.

Robben has been battling the state and criminal justice system since he was terminated by the Taxation Department.

He was angry with Tatro for his conviction on charges of disorderly conduct centered on his attempt to — allegedly — serve papers on behalf of a friend on then-NDOT Director Susan Martinovich.

Are you aware of the ruling in Times v. Sullivan (1964) which states this, in part:

As Americans we have a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on Public Issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide open. And that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.

Ty Robben, a former Nevada Taxation Department employee, was being held on the charge with a $50,000 bail. Mark Jackson, the district attorney brought on as special prosecutor after Carson City’s DA was removed from the case, said he reviewed the evidence before him and made the decision.
In a statement Jackson said:
“Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court.”
Last month Jackson dropped charges of stalking, libel and two counts of intimidation of Tatro and his family, saying there wasn’t enough evidence that Robben was stalking him and his family, and that Nevada’s libel law was vague.

Record CourierA bail hearing was Tuesday for a fired state taxation employee who faces a charge of attempting to solicit someone to kill a Carson City justice of the peace.

jp tatro ruthless and toothless

South Lake Tahoe resident Todd Christian Robben, 44, is in custody awaiting trail on two counts of intimidating Judge John Tatro. The additional charges were announced on Monday.

Robben reportedly tried to “solicit another to commit the murder of Carson City Justice of the Peace John Tatro either directly or through another person.”

Robben, who has been battling the state and the criminal justice system since he was terminated from the Taxation Department more than a year ago, already has been convicted of disorderly conduct.

murder of Judge TatroHe blamed Tatro for his treatment on the disorderly conduct charge involving his attempt to allegedly serve papers on the then-director of the Nevada Department of Transportation, Susan Martinovich.

Soliciting to commit murder is by far the most serious charge yet filed against him. It is a Category B felony punishable by 2-15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Robben has asked that his $50,000 bail be reduced. The DA’s office wants it increased.

Visiting judge Senior JP Harold Albright of Sparks will be in Carson City for that hearing, and he is expected to conduct Robben’s appearance on the new felony charge.

Public Defender Jarrod Hickman argued in November that Robben thinks he has been treated so unfairly by the DA’s office that his rights have been violated.

They lost an attempt to disqualify the DA’s office from prosecuting Robben on charges of libeling the judge, two counts of attempting to intimidate a public officer and stalking by electronic means.

In addition, Albright refused at that hearing to reduce Robben’s bail.

Those charges, one of which is another felony, are pending.

A man who protested the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office was charged with trying to solicit murder of a judge on Jan. 27.

A complaint in Carson City, Nev., charges Todd “Ty” Robben with trying to solicit the murder of Judge John Tatro. The charge is a Class B Felony, said Carson City Assistant District Attorney Mark Krueger, which carries a possible term of two to 15 years.

The complaint alleges that Robben, while already in custody, attempted to solicit another inmate — who was a “cooperative source”— to murder Tatro. Robben, a warrant obtained by the Mountain Democrat shows, was in custody on charges of stalking by electronic means, libel and two counts of intimidating a public officer.

Robben protested outside the El Dorado County DA’s Office and the South Lake Tahoe Courthouse last May after bounty hunters illegally crossed state lines to capture him, he said. Out-of-state bounty hunters require an affidavit and warrant, he previously told the Mountain Democrat. DA Vern Pierson, however, said the matter was handled properly. Robben’s protest focused on what he said was corruption in Pierson’s office for not charging the bounty hunters.

His road to felony charges has as much to do with threats being made and recorded while in jail over the phone it looks like as it does with a jail informant. He was also reported to have no less then five restraining orders against him from co-workers alone according to a News4 Reno report where he was maintaining that the state court was not filing papers and then backdating them regarding his termination from employment case and he was at that time given an order not to have any contact with court staff by a Judge Wilson.

  • 1036-FrankFebruary 06, 2014 – 2:44 pmThe first question people might have is to ask themselves how many co-workers they know who while employed have ever had restraining orders from co- workers filed against them regarding their employment? I’ve never seen it locally although as anything it could happen. In his case News4 Reno said there were five. This was in the story about his claiming the court docs weren’t filed properly when the court staff said they were and this looks like it went to the Attorney General if not the Supreme Court as there are so many court filings it is hard to tell and this isn’t the same judge as now. These kind of orders prohibiting conduct of an employee would in a restraining order would about make it mandatory to terminate them on the orders alone because of the inability of others to perform their jobs along with creating a hostile work place problem. This is but one of many things that tell the back-story, which I believe is the real story. The two recent Nevada Appeal articles are also relevant about the threats made over the recorded jail phone which are being used for felony charges along with an informant. These troubles and allegations are involving way too many people in different areas and states for them to be all or any of them legitimate in my book.Reply | Report abusive comment

  • 1036-FrankFebruary 06, 2014 – 3:09 pmIn this case of Robbens, He was like a one man war against law enforcement, the justice system, and the courts and local govt. This is not a winning game, and worse if tried in two states and several counties. the local DA was smart and ignored him from what I can tell and these kind of people like Robbens want attention and he didn’t get much, and the public support wasn’t there, though he would certainly be a tool to use for the “others are more corrupt” then me gang of operatives.

Ty Robben, a former Nevada Taxation Department employee, was being held on the charge with a $50,000 bail. Mark Jackson, the district attorney brought on as special prosecutor after Carson City’s DA was removed from the case, said he reviewed the evidence before him and made the decision. In a statement Jackson said: “Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court.” Last month Jackson dropped charges of stalking, libel and two counts of intimidation of Tatro and his family, saying there wasn’t enough evidence that Robben was stalking him and his family, and that Nevada’s libel law was vague.Reply | Report abusive comment

Nevada crime scene

Nevada crime scene

In 2012, Ty Robben, a Nevada citizen, led lawful and peaceful protests against corruption in Nevada’s Attorney General’s Office and judiciary. After several high profile demonstrations – with the “World’s Largest Crime Scene Banner” at 4 ft tall x 150 ft long on display – in front of the AG’s Office and the courthouse spurred significant media coverage, he was arrested on a trumped up misdemeanor assault charge. He spent a total of 22 days in jail – eight in solitary confinement – and nearly another month under house arrest with an ankle monitor. The judge who signed the arrest warrant was Judge John Tatro, the same judge who Ty had attempted to disqualify from his civil case due to judicial bias.  The assault charge was eventually dropped.
In December 2012, Judge Tatro woke up to the sound of gunfire at his home around 4:30 am. Two shots entered the front door, passed through the living room, and exited through a sliding glass door. Ty Robben was questioned and immediately cleared. There has been no reported arrest to date but the police reviewed the judge’s court calendar in search of suspects. This incident followed the highly publicized June 2006 shooting of Judge Chuck Weller. Judge Weller was shot in the chest through the window of his third-floor courthouse office in Reno, Nevada, by a sniper in the parking garage across the street. The sniper, Darren Mack, had appeared before Judge Weller in Mack’s divorce case. Both Judge Tatro and Judge Weller had less than stellar reputations for rendering honest decisions in cases that came before them.

In previous chapters I’ve cited some examples of the questionable actions of judicial officers I encountered and hinted at the impropriety of other judges and of the entire judicial system in which they function. It would be beneficial for you, the reader, to have an in-depth overview of the State of Nevada judicial system – aside from my specific case. It will provide the proper backdrop for what I was up against in my encounter with Nevada justice and will bring the blatant incompetence and corruption of the judges and courts in Nevada into proper perspective. The Ty Robben’s story is stunning, disturbing, and incomprehensible. It is also demonstrative of the lawlessness that exists in the state of Nevada, where the most fundamental constitutional rights are not recognized. In preparing for this and the next chapter, I have referenced the reports of reputable news reporters and the reports of legal experts and opinion makers all of which have been made public through the print and online media. The documented behavior of several Nevada judges during the course of their careers is relevant when assessing the Nevada judicial system as a whole. I was unfortunate enough to have my own personal experience with one of the judges highlighted in these reports.

In an extensive three-part series published in the Los Angeles Times in June 2006, entitled “JUICE VS. JUSTICE | A Times Investigation: In Las Vegas, They’re Playing with a Stacked Judicial Deck,” Los Angeles Times reporters Michael J. Goodman and William C. Rempel wrote in great detail about the questionable, even illegal, behavior of a number of Nevada judges. If the title wasn’t enough to draw a picture for their readers, the reporters included this provocative statement as a subtitle:

Some judges routinely rule in cases involving friends, former clients and business associates – and in favor of lawyers who fill their campaign coffers.

Carson City Sheriff Covering up the Judge Tatro Shooting? HELL YES

Is the Carson City Sheriff Covering up the Judge Tatro Shooting after admitting the alleged shooter confessed? We think hell YES.

UPDATE 09-28-2013 – I spoke with the Carson City Sheri Kenny Furlong about the name of the 19 old male who confessed to shooting Judge Tatro’s house.

Sheriff Furlong at first said the name of the shooter was Jesse Richardson and then realized that the Jesse Richardson was the witness, not the shooter…

Levi Anthony Minor

Levi Anthony Minor

Furlong then said the 19 old male who confessed to shooting Judge Tatro’s house was Levi Anthony Minor of the west side BB shooting fame …But that Levi Anthony Minor didn’t really do it and he made the story up. The they issued a warrant for the witness Jesse Richardson (alleged probation violation) or is the warrant to get Jesse Richardson into custody to shut him up? We don’t believe the Sheriff Furlong story and still this issue as a cover up.

Jesse Russell Richardson

Jesse Russell Richardson

Have you seen Jesse Russell Richardson?

Have you seen Jesse Russell Richardson? If so, the CCSO issued a warrant or his arrest. Please have Jesse Russell Richardson call KRNV Newsroom: 775-785-1210 and tell his side of the story.

We reported that a credible source presented credible information, a jailhouse confession concerning the shooter of Carson City Judge Tatro.

We reported that story here: The shooter of Judge Tatro’s door found? Judge Tatro caught in sex triangle revenge scandal?

The Carson City Sheriff was informed of the information and conducted an investigation the first week of September 2013. The results of the Carson City Sheriff investigation confirmed that the information we provided was true, but that the target was a straw man judge because it was not Judge Tatro or any other Judge.

However, the Sheriff is saying that this person made up the story and really shot into another Carson City Judges home with a BB gun. However, it was not one of the four Carson City Judges and the Judge was not named.

What was the motive?

The Sheriff confirmed the shooters mom did work at the Carson City Courthouse and this supports the belief that there was some kind of sexual affair going on and the 19 year old shooter was upset and shot at the Judges front door.

The official Sheriff explanation is not credible. We have reported this to the local news and FBI to get real answer.

THIS WAS RECORDED IN RENO NEVADA: Karin Huffer has discovered why many people leave a courtroom frustrated and sick. On Wednesday April 2, 2008 we presented a new program called FAMILY COURT – Part 2 – Dennis Grover and Michael Nance are joined on the phone by Stephen Baskerville author of TAKEN INTO CUSTODY and Karin Huffer author of LEGAL ABUSE SYNDROME. Stephen shares his research into the atrocities of Family Court, where it came from and questionable tactics and implementations of its own rules that affect mostly children. Karin Huffer explores the foundation of Legal Abuse Syndrome and has proven that a constant negative result from any courtroom experience produces Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome in litigants. Before you go to any court, understand that Justice is not a part of the equation and prepare yourself for the possibilities of being in a situation that is based in judge and attorney created rules rather than common sense.

Bail has to be reasonable it can’t be coercive.

CARSON CITY, Nev.  – First lady Kathleen Sandoval is encouraging Nevadans to wear blue jeans on Wednesday as part of a campaign to promote Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Denim Day.

The Denim Day campaign evolved in the 1990s from a ruling by Italy’s Supreme Court. Justices overturned a rape conviction, saying that because the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her attacker remove her pants, thereby implying consent.

The next day women in the Italian Parliament wore jeans in a show of solidarity with the victim.

Denim Day has since spread to the United States as a way to raise awareness of sexual violence through education.

Sandoval says this year’s focus will be on educating the community at large on the legal definition of consent.

Do it RIGHT, Roger may have, but he should have given the SHERIFF of the Shire [ or county ] first option to come with the crowd and effectuate the ARREST. IF the Sheriff refuses, then Roger can have a Shire, or County Militia, ARMED , go arrest the JUDGE, and take him to the jail for booking. Of course, the Arrested Judge, has a right to bail, to see the TRUE BILL of INDICTMENT.
several dozen filed into the Treasonous Judges courtroom, and announced the ARREST of the sitting Treasonous JUDGE, 2 men moved forward to seize the judge and Bailiffs interfere with the Lawful Arrest under Section 61 of the Magna Carta.

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as “Agenda 21″, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the…

Purchase of MREs, flashlights & ammunition is a “suspicious activity”

April 23, 2014

The New York State Division of Homeland Security is encouraging businesses to snitch on preppers as terrorists, urging that the purchase of MRE’s, ammunition or flash lights be treated as a suspicious activity.

As the video above illustrates, the LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY received a visit from a state trooper who put up a flyer in the window which encourages customers to call the New York State Terrorism Tips Line, 1-866 SAFE NYS, to report suspicious activity under the mantra of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.

1-866 SAFE NYS is part of Safeguard New York, an NY State counterterrorism program that uses promotional material to encourage citizens to report people for engaging in “suspicious activity….which makes them stand out from others”.

Even knowing all this, the latest attack on our defenses is shocking – we don’t have one tank left in Europe – not one!

The last Abrams tank left Germany in January.

Tanks are a vital weapon in our defense system. You don’t see Russia canceling funding for their tanks.

It’s always satisfying to see race-baiting bureaucrats get their comeuppance in court, but an opinion by the 6th Circuit issued earlier this month begins especially delightfully:

In this case the EEOC sued the defendants for using the same type of background check that the EEOC itself uses. The EEOC’s personnel handbook recites that “[o]verdue just debts increase temptation to commit illegal or unethical acts as a means of gaining funds to meet financial obligations.” Because of that concern, the EEOC runs credit checks on applicants for 84 of the agency’s 97 positions. The defendants (collectively, “Kaplan”) have the same concern; and thus Kaplan runs credit checks on applicants for positions that provide access to students’ financial-loan information, among other positions. For that practice, the EEOC sued Kaplan.

The April 9 ruling in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Kaplan Higher Education Corp. has received little…

DHS likely gearing up for mass panic in America with perpetual ammo purchases
April 22, 2014 by Kit Daniels

Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is seeking an ammunition dealer who can provide 25 million shotgun rounds to the agency over a five year period, adding to its already enormous arsenal of ammo.

The solicitation posted on FBO.gov states that U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a department under DHS, is seeking “shotgun ammunition for use by all applicable agencies in the Department of Homeland Security,” more specifically three million rounds of shotgun slugs per year and two million rounds of buckshot per year for five years.

“The ammunition will be used as appropriate at all Department of Homeland Security (DHS or department) component locations nationwide and outside the CONUS [continental United States,]” the notice reads.

This is an excessive amount that not only reveals the vast scope…

During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Priebus discussed how the the GOP has filed an ethics complaint against the Nevada Democrat to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics over the issue.

“Harry Reid is so dirty and so unethical that some of these things have to happen,” Priebus said on Fox and Friends. “You have to put a marker down and say, wait a second. You are not going to use a taxpayer web site and a taxpayer Twitter account to attack Republicans”

Four Points From Scalia’s Scathing Dissent to Allow Searches Based on Anonymous Tips
SCOTUS anonymous tip search
Apr. 23, 2014 by Liz Klimas

“A freedom-destroying cocktail.”

That’s how Justice Antonin Scalia characterized Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling that law enforcement officers may pull over and search drivers based solely on an anonymous tip.

The justices ruled 5-4 Tuesday to uphold a traffic stop in northern California in which officers subsequently found marijuana in the vehicle. The officers themselves did not see any evidence of the tipped reckless driving, which was interpreted as drunkenness, even after following the truck for several minutes.

Justice Clarence Thomas said the tip phoned in to 911 that a Ford pickup truck had run the caller off the road was sufficiently reliable to allow for the traffic stop without violating the driver’s constitutional rights.

But Justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote the dissent in Prado Navarette v. California, had strong words about…

Officials say Tal Pierre Smith may have stolen up to $250,000. Investigators believe Smith charged that much using his state credit card over a three-year time period. On Your Side asked NDOT questions about state credit cards and purchasing policies.

Investigators say Smith purchased items using his card and later, sold or pawned them in order to get the cash that helped fuel his gambling addiciton. NDOT would not talk specifically about this case, however, following the arrest, NDOT said it has reviewed its purchasing and credit card-use policies. Read the rest of this entry »

Mynews4.com On Your Side: Domestic violence case dismissed without trial

In the legal system, we expect cases to be decided based on facts and the evidence. But a recent case involving a charge of domestic violence in Sparks was dropped, and it had nothing to do with either of those.

“I couldn’t believe that this person who had committed domestic battery against me was now a free man to go.”

When Destiny and her 16-year-old daughter showed up at Sparks Municipal Court in March, they were ready to testify against Destiny’s husband Mynor Estrada, who had been arrested on a charge of domestic violence. Destiny claimed in the police report that her husband was “yelling profanities” at her, and that he “hit her four times in the stomach”. The report also said the suspect sped off in a car, and “nearly struck one of Destiny’s other children” as he left.

This “judge” probably couldn’t tell you what the difference is between, Without or with Prejudice. She has no legal training, education or otherwise. That’s why Nevada needs to make it a law, that all judges need to have passed the Bar and have a Law License. To many times judges like her and Tatro in Carson City, screw a case up due to their decisions on evidence, witnesses, etc and now the victims get VICTIMIZED twice.

Race background

Sandoval won election in 2010, a year when Republicans were trending to the far-right, leading to the election of controversial GOP governors such as Florida’s Rick Scott and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker. Two years into Sandoval’s term, meanwhile, he remained mostly out of the national spotlight due to his pragmatic, low-key approach and willingness to work with both sides of the aisle. With the national Republican Party in rebuilding mode, Sandoval offered an example in contrast to the more aggressive approach taken by the GOP in recent years.[6]

City-of-North-Las-VegasBy  - Posted: Apr 11, 2014 at 9:52 am

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The City of North Las Vegas has avoided a state takeover by reaching long-awaited agreements with the last of it’s employee unions bolstered by last minute interventionefforts from Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Brian Sandoval with his bong

Brian Sandoval with his bong

If the city was unable to reach an agreement that included union concessions further cuts would have been made to the already shrunken workforce, which is not a good option for a city that already seen major layoffs.

The most viable option left in absence of an agreement would have been a state takeover.

Sandoval let the top brass know that a state takeover would not be a bed of roses and would with 100% certainty result in layoffs, an outcome the unions have long stated they wanted to avoid.

There is a faction of people who blame union greed on the problems North Las Vegas and other financially strapped cities have suffered.

That faction subscribes to the belief that unions have force fed sky high salary and benefits packages that nearly crippled the city and are not at all interested in “fair pay”.

Although the beleaguered city has been plagued with problems for years and is often compared to Detroit, Mich., there is a key difference in organizing affairs.  Detroit opted for a Chapter 9 bankruptcy, but that is not an option for North Las Vegas since Nevada is one of a handful of U.S. states that does not give explicit permission for municipal Chapter 9 bankruptcy in its constitution.

In 2012 the City of North Las Vegas declared a controversial state of emergency and said their biggest problem was salaries and compensation and benefits. That same year, they were hit with approximately $15 million dollars in separation costs paid to city employees and were listed by USA Today as one of the worst run cities in the nation.

The biggest hurdle was settling with the firefighters and teamsters unions and, it is believed, they finally accepted the more than $3 million dollar settlement that they were previously offered and rebuffed.

Until the next union negotiation, which will likely be filled with outrageous demands in an attempt to make up for the current negotiation shortfall, the City of North Las Vegas have avoided a state takeover. Read the rest of this entry »

Las Vegas judge Eric Goodman assault details being kept under wraps

By  - Posted: Apr 13, 2014 at 6:33 am

LAS VEGAS – Judge Eric Goodman, the son of current Mayor Carolyn Goodman and former Mayor Oscar Goodman, was found unconscious in a Summer Park restroom on Dec. 15.

Police have been very tight-lipped about about the entire case. When Eric Goodman was found unconscious in the park restroom police released information to the public that an identified male was unconscious and were seeking information.

It took nearly two weeks for his name to be released.

Once his name became public the police and Goodman’s family provided different accounts of what happened to Goodman.

Police have said that Goodman may or may not have been assaulted, while Oscar Goodman said that his son injuries were consistent with an assault.

Oscar Goodman said that his son suffered from a traumatic braininjury and has no recollection of the event.

What exactly does that mean?  Does he remember jogging that day? Did he remember meeting someone? Or is the whole day a complete blank?

Eric Goodman spent time in a rehabilitation facility for his injury before being sent home and has made a full recovery.

But what really happened to him?

The judge who has received low scores when being rated by attorneys has been eerily quiet and his powerful family has been able to command silence from the Las Vegas police department as well as the traditional media.

The case has been anything but transparent which leads to a lot of speculation since the mysterious assault of Eric Goodman certainly reeks of a political cover-up..

Does Eric Goodman have a secret life? When he went out for a supposed jog was he scheduled to meet someone?

Las Vegans have taken to posting their thoughts on social media and a good amount of the postings think that his injury, or assault, resulted from a drug or sex deal that had gone bad.  Some think the Eric Goodman is still in the closet about his sexuality, does not want the public to know that he is gay and used his jogging time to meet men in the park.

Since he is a judge it is possible that someone had it in for him and attacked him from behind.

For now the mysterious circumstances of the injuries that Eric Goodman suffered are known only to him and possibly the police and his powerful parents.

Stanley Gibson’s lawsuit settled By  - Posted: Apr 12, 2014 at 5:43 am

LAS VEGAS – The final lawsuit concerning Stanley Gibson, a deceased veteran living in Las Vegas who was killed by Las Vegas police, has been settled.

Gibson was killed in December 2011. The disabled vet was having severe mental health issues for at least a week before his death. On the day of Gibson’s death he had barricaded himself in a car.

Officer that responded wanted to force Gibson from his car and utilized pepper spray as well as beanbag rounds. When the beanbag round was fired former Las Vegas police officer Jesus Arevalo opened fire killing Gibson. Arevalo was fired after a board recommendation due to his actions that resulted in Gibson’s death.

 

The case garnered widespread attention because there were clear indicators that Gibson was in need of immediate mental health assistance.

He had had numerous interactions with police and medical professionals before his death. He was even arrested and scheduled for a psychiatric evaluation but was released without being examined.

On another occasion Gibson was transported by ambulance to an emergency room and emergency room staff released him 22 minutes after he arrived.

The system failed Stanley Gibson.

Those that spoke out about the Gibson case after his death included his wife and a former landlord. They said that Gibson repeatedly tried to get assistance in obtaining his medication and even turned to the local media for help.

Last October Gibson’s widow Rhonda Gibson received a $1.5 million dollar settlement. She was very vocal about the treatment her late husband’s case received by police and penned a letter to COPBLOCK two years after he was murdered.

Stanley Gibson’s mother Celestine Gibson was awarded $500,000, per an announcement made Tuesday, which will be paid from the Las Vegas police department’s liability insurance.

During the speech at at Harvard University’s John F.

“What kinds of behaviors are we talking about?” she asked. “For the most part, they’re not related directly to plotting attacks. They’re more subtle. For instance, parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home—becoming confrontational.”

Nevada medical marijuana lawNevada’s medical marijuana law took effect this month, but much remains to be done before the budding industry can take root here.

That’s especially true for marijuana growers, labs and dispensaries, which must meet the strictest requirements of any state in the country that has legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes.

On top of that, the businesses operate in an industry that while growing fast is hindered by a troubling discrepancy between state and federal law. Nevada’s pot law

Nevada’s 136-page regulation was recently approved and the Division of Public and Behavioral Health of the Department of Health and Human Services will make the application for businesses available within 120 days, says Marla McDade Williams, deputy administrator.

Williams says the department is expecting about 425 applications for the various businesses, including fewer than 70 dispensaries allowed by the law, comprising 40 in Clark, 10 in Washoe, two in Carson City and one in each of the remaining counties.

The law does not specify the number of growers or labs allowed, although the intent is to permit only enough to supply and service the dispensaries.

The application process is not for the faint of heart or fly by night. Each application requires a $5,000, non-refundable deposit and, if accepted, more charges, such as $30,000 registration fee for dispensaries.

Applicants must supply five years of tax records, information on all owners and employees, including criminal records, and a detailed budget. Read the rest of this entry »

DA Vern PiersonThe District Attorney of El Dorado County received a letter from the Fair Political Practices Commission regarding violations of the Political Reform Act’s campaign disclosure provisions.

See the FPPC report here: Vern Pierson warning letter from FPPC

“Specifically, the FPPC found that you violated the Act’s campaign disclosure provisions with regard to loans made to your committee and that you also violated the Act’s ‘one bank account per campaign’ requirement as evidenced when you reimbursed yourself for $4,100 for campaign expenses you paid with personal funds without first depositing that amount in the campaign bank account,” the letter from FPPC Chief Enforcement Officer Gary Winuk to District Attorney Vern Pierson read.

A second complaint was filed against Pierson alleging his wife is a physical therapist and Pierson is the chief technology officer of the county, but that these are not divulged on campaign finance forms. In a footnote in the FPPC letter, Winuk acknowledges a second complaint that was dismissed due to lack of evidence. Pierson said his wife had never been a physical therapist.

Winuk also noted that Pierson had no previous record of violations, and as such, would only have a warning issued; subsequent violations could result in a $5,000 fine per violation.

Vern Pierson protest

El Dorado DA Vern Pierson ANTI Corruption protest 2013

“I appreciate the FPPC having a very difficult job enforcing laws regarding political campaigns,” Pierson told the Mountain Democrat. “Now, I have an experienced campaign treasurer” handling campaign finances, he said.

Frank Stephens, who filed the complaints with the FPPC and provided copies of both complaints, said that Pierson was doing the same thing he is currently accusing Supervisor Ray Nutting of doing — paperwork violations. When Stephens learned of the accusations against Nutting, he said he was “very much offended” and pulled records on Pierson’s campaign to see if he had made any violations. “Guess what? He did,” Stephens said.

Pierson, Stephens said, is “unfit to be the district attorney” due to how he has unethically handled the Nutting case. Stephens worked on and monetarily supported Pierson’s original campaign to become DA, something which he said he was “unhappy” he did in retrospect.

“With regards to the letters, it’s pretty pathetic,” said political watchdog Chuck Holland. “The Three Stooges” — what Holland refers to as Ray Nutting, Cris Alarcon and Dan Dellinger — “got Frank Stephens to perjure himself to the FPPC,” referring to the part that was dismissed due to lack of evidence. “It’s a continuation of a witch hunt, and Frank Stephens is tied to them.”

He noted that this was also the first time since Pierson had competition, in the form of bankruptcy lawyer Judson Henry. Henry dropped out of the race after about two weeks, but will still be on the ballot. “It became clear others had attempted to use him to create a distraction,” Pierson said at the time Henry dropped out.

Ray Nutting told the Mountain Democrat that he was not involved with any political campaign, including the DA’s campaign.
