The Carson City DA Rombardo and Kruger caught removing Judge Tatro’s court files in the Ty Robben cases!

Nevada Appeal and Carson NOW censoring the news again?

carson city courthouse

More scandals at the notoriously corrupt Carson City Courthouse – This time corrupt Judge Tatro “removing files from the record”

The local newspaper Nevada Appeal and CarsonNOW.org are not following-up now that Ty Robben is “wining” and exposing the massive rampant corruption that has occurred in the retaliation scheme  orchestrated by corrupt DA Rombardo, Krueger and Judge Tatro. I am sure glad I started a blog a few years ago so my side of the story gets out.

The corruption never stops!  This time corrupt Carson City DA and Judge Tatro “removing files from the record”. This is on top of Tatro earlier intentionally not filing other papers in this case!

Last week Ty Robben protests his former defense lawyer William Routsis after it was discovered that Robben’s lawyer sold him out, conspired against him, and engaged in removing files on the record, not turning in papers on time,  back room deals with the Carson City DA and corrupt Judge Tatro – and of all other things, being too drunk and high to write the court motions for Robben’s cases!

Ty Robben had to type up and research the law because his attorney was inebriated most of the time on alcohol and meth. Robben was a witness to the troubling behavior and demanded his $4,000.00 dollars back. See that story here: Protests target corrupt Reno lawyer William Routsis for “ripping off” & “selling out clients”, back room deals, fraud, ineffective legal counsel, threats of extortion, meth use, binders on booze being to drunk to return calls, and more!

This week  Ty Robben successfully appealed a trumped-up false charge of “disturbing-the-peace” orchestrated by the corrupt “cho-mo” judge John Tatro know for his breathier-before-the-bench by the folks in Carson City.

Also, this week, Ty Robben also beat back the Carson City assistant DA Mark Krugers fruitless attempt to reinstate bogus felony criminal charges that were dismissed earlier this year by “special prosecutor” Douglas County DA Mark Jackson

In doing so, Robben discovered various “missing” filings and JAVs audio/video of court hearings that were supposed to be on the court files on appeal that includes a disputed “contempt-of-court” charge that Robben asserts was an illegal order.”

“Judge Tatro issues a clear verbal and written order that never included a daily check in with DAS or house arrest” said Robben. 

“There are numerous missing items that were in fact in the damn file” said Robben.

judge tatroIn particular now is a missing “stipulation” by the Carson City district Attorney, former Deputy DA Travis Lucia and Robben’s previous lawyer Richard Davies, that shows Robben was never ordered on “house arrest” or “DAS daily check-in”. missing papers

Judge Tatro, know for being drunk in the courtroom, “never ordered house arrest and a daily check-in, the record is clear and even the DA agrees” said Robben.

Now in order to overturn another false claim of “contempt-of-court” Robben seeks the paperwork from the court files that mysteriously is now missing after it was there.

“I had a copy of it and I find it very suspicious that the Carson City Sheriff “searched my house” for 5 days and removed various paperwork related to this case.” said Robben.

This is straight out of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia… this is just the “new world order police state” mentality being carried out in Carson City by a very, very corrupt law enforcement and shitty scandalous judicial system.

Here is the 09/21/12 (note Tatro calls it 09/20/12 in the order below) entry of the “stip” on the Carson City court docket report:

fbi protest reno

Ty Robben protested the FBI in Reno demanding an investigation into the corruption in the Carson City courthouse

“If it was a baseball game, Robben 9, Carson DA 0″

Tordery Robben has prevailed again against the corrupt Carson City DA Neil Rombardo and his corrupt assistant Mark Krueger.

On Friday July 18, 2014 Ret. Reno Judge Charles McGee (who was assigned the cases since every Carson City judge was recused) issued an order that officially dismissed the previously dismissed false charges filed against Robben for allegedly libeling Corrupt Carson City Judge John Tatro and then solicitation the murder for the corrupt judge Tatro.

Robben also has prevailed in his appeal of the original breach-of-peace conviction that corrupt judge Tatro presided over untill he was eventually disqualified for accusing Robben of “shooting up Tatro’s front door with a .45″.

After Tatro was kicked off the case, corrupt Las Vegas judge Nancy C. Oesterle was assigned the case and completely disregard the law and facts of the case to cover-up for her corrupt pal, judge Tatro and convicting Robben to a record setting 60-days in jail for the breach-of-peace charge.

Judge McGee overturned that conviction and did reassign that appeal to the Carson City DA. However, McGee warned the DA that he has issued an “interlocutory” order reversing the conviction against Robben and if the DA pursues the matter, the DA risks malicious prosecution clams by Robben.

judge tatroRobben has filed a federal civil complaint in the matter and is in the process of amending the complaint and/or filing a new complaint to include all the false charges filed by Tatro and the Carson City Sheriff and DA including the recently dismissed libel, solicitation, stalking and intimidation charges.
John Tatro filed these changes as an individual not a judge, he has no immunity” says Robben.

Robben has also filed FBI complaints and also recently discovered his former lawyer William Routsis was working against him in the case.

“I protested William Routsis last week and he wigged out and tried to fight me” said Robben who plans on keeping up the protests against Routsis, Tatro, Krueger and others involved in this scandal. “I want them in prison” says Robben who has kept up the pressure as his website is close to a quarter million views this month.

judge tatro scandals

“These scumbags are as bad or worse that child molesters” said Robben. In fact, Robben even has evidence to back up a claim that Judge Tatro was involved in child molestation.

“They tried to put me in prison to keep my voice silenced” said Robben who has exposed numerous facts related to scandals with corrupt judge Tatro, Sheriff Furlong, DA Rombardo and others.

The range of corruption includes Tatro having to breathalyze before taking the bench, sex with court workers and underage men, the shooter of Tatro’s home did in fact confess and the CCSO cover-up that to protect Tatro’s family. Robben also made DA Rombardo un-electable by exposing  Rombardo sexual affairs with employees and deputy DA’s in the Carson City offices.

“If it was a baseball game, Robben 9, Carson DA 0″ Says Robben.

“These scumbags need to be removed from office and charged with the crimes they committed. They also need to pay me back for the damage they created.” says Robben who said “They will pay one way or another”.

The Nevada Appeal ran the original story here:

nevada appeal storyCarson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

The Carson City District Attorney’s office is moving to reinstate criminal charges against Ty Robben — including that he tried to solicit a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Two cases involving Robben were turned over to the Douglas County DA’s office after Senior District Judge Charles McGee in Reno disqualified the Carson DA’s office from handling them.

But two months after that ruling, McGee, of his own volition, entered an order saying he would reconsider that decision in light of an April opinion by the Nevada Supreme Court effectively reversing the precedent he relied on in disqualifying the DA. While McGee said he still has concerns, he would like to see the issue briefed and would consider reinstating the Carson DA’s office.

http://www.nevadaappeal.com/news/11178764-113/office-robben-charges-carson

But in between his first order and the second one, issued April 15, Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation-to-commit-murder charge as well as the libel, stalking and harassment charges filed in the first case. He said in the dismissal notices that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Putting Carson City back in charge would allow the office to refile the charges against Robben, including solicitation to commit murder, a Category B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

In the request for reappointment, Assistant DA Mark Krueger emphasized that the Carson DA’s office “reviews the evidence provided by law enforcement and charges only those crimes in which the Carson City District Attorney’s office believes occurred and can be proven at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Krueger declined to comment on the filing, but the court document states that his office maintains “there has never been a conflict of interest” in the cases against Robben.

Robben, meanwhile, is taking his claims the office is unconstitutionally harassing him, violating his rights and covering up corruption in the Carson judicial system to the federal level. He said he will sue the DA’s office and Krueger in federal court and that he has already been interviewed by the FBI.

Robben’s troubles began when he was terminated from the Department of Taxation. His appeals of the termination were rejected at every level.

He got into legal trouble after an incident in which he said he was trying to serve papers on then-NDOT Director Susan Martinovich on behalf of another fired state worker. He became angered with Tatro after the judge convicted him in that case. His anger escalated, and his conduct resulted in the first batch of charges. He was in jail when he allegedly tried to get another prisoner to connect him with a hit man to murder the judge.

Robben was released from jail after the charges were dropped this month.

 

william routsis protest

Lawyer Mr. William Routsis, ESQ. of Reno, NV claimed on the court records he was “ineffective counsel”

Reno criminal defense attorney William J. Routsis, got a taste of revenge after a former client, Ty Robben protested outside Mr. Routsis’ office at 1070 Monroe St. in Reno which happens to also be Mr. Routsis’ home.

Mr. Robben paid Mr. Routsis $4,000.00 dollars to represent him in court – He now wants his money back.

williamroutsisbadlawyer.wordpress.com is dedicated to this asshole.

Mr. Routsis claimed on the court records he was “ineffective counsel” to Mr. Robben by failing to turn in documents on time, making “back room” deals with the corrupt Carson City judge John Tatro and the DA Travis Lucia, Neil Rombardo and even working against Robben by conspiring with the Carson City Sheriff Detective Dan Gomes.

william routsis

At the protest July 15, 2014, Robben and a group of his “peaceful” protest posse expressed their 1st amendment rights in front of Routsis’ home/office on Monroe Street in Reno, Nevada. Neighbors looked upon the signs and people driving by honk their horns in support of Robben’s protest.

Mr. Robben linked the information together and connected the dots by listening to various audio CDs containing the hearings and other transcripts from the Sheriff. Mr. Routsis worked to make sure Robben got the maximum sentence in a disturbing the peace charge for serving a subpoena to former NDOT Director Susan Martinivich, who actually evaded service and ran over Mr. Robben’s foot when she took off in her SUV.

Robben prevailed on his appeal of the breach-of-peace in July 2014 based on his own legal arguments of withdrawing his plea. Robben had to write his own briefs and perform his own legal research because ‘Routsis does not know how to use a computer”.

Robben had to even file the pleading in proper person because Routsis was too drunk and high on dope.

Robben let the militia aside, and just made a few signs. “I want my money back for services not performed”.

Routsis was not home at the time the protest started, but drove up on the protest near the end of day.

William Routsis

Disbar William Routsis

Routsis became enraged and hostile when he read the signs and allegedly called the Reno Police Department to file “criminal charges” against Robben for “extortion” and called Robben a “terrorist”  and Routsis then yelled “I have been working with CCSO Detective Gomes to tell them you are extorting money from me and you [Robben] are on the FBI terror watch list.”

Routsis then challenged Ty Robben to a fight right there on the public sidewalk. People from the neighborhood gathered around and watch William Routsis, a former boxer, tell Robben to “Man UP” and attempted to lure Robben onto his property for a fight!

Robben remained calm, and told Routsis that “You, William Routsis even admit on the court records that you failed to perform you legal duties and were ‘ineffective legal counsel’ for me [Ty Robben]“.photo(3)

Ty Robben’s cousin Jimmy Robben, a cowboy from the Mother Lode witnessed the mayhem and prevented Routsis from striking Ty Robben with his fists. “Ty was here to express his U.S. Constitutional rights and protest a bad business dispute, and William Routsis wanted to start a fist fight. Let’s be clear, Routsis challenged Robben who just held up his ‘Crime Scene’ sign to Routsis’ face while Jimmy Robben restrained Routsis from physically assaulting/battering  Robben.

Robben told Routsis to “get help and look into a 12-step program… and don’t talk to me until you get to step 9 Mr. Routsis”.

Robben said he will be filing a criminal complaint against Wiillim Routsis after this all settles down for terriost threats, assault and Routsis’ challenging him [Robben] to a fight. Robben will file a BAR complaint and even a civil legal malpractice suit against this clown named William Routsis.

ty robben charges dismissedReno Judge Charles McGee reversed trumped-up “breach-of-peace” conviction for Ty Robben who attempted to serve a subpoena to former NDOT Director Susan Martinovich who clearly evaded service when she left the NDOT building through the back door and took a decoy car driven by NDOT employees to the Smith’s grocery store in Carson City, NV.

The order issued Wednesday July 09, 2014 also appears to render the Carson City District Attorney’s attempt to reinstate other dismissed charges including Libel, Intimidation and Stalking as well as Solicitation of MURDER against corrupt Carson City Judge John Tatro as moot.

The “contempt of court” conviction should also be rendered moot and reversed too since corrupt Judge Tatro’s order was illegal and void of any law or due process when Judge Tatro added conditions to Robben’s bail conditions with no hearing after a request by the Carson City Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) ordered Robben to wear a GPS device and then ordered Robben to be placed on “house arrest” with a “daily check-in” to the DAS office in Carson City from his home in South Lake Tahoe. The original order never included a “daily check-in” or “house arrest” according to Robben who has proof of the actual transcripts of the hearing conducted by corrupt Judge Tatro. Even the District Attorney Travis Lucia agreed in a written stipulation that Robben was not on house arrest or daily check-in.

susan martinovich hit and run coverup

susan martinovich hit and run coverup

Furthermore, the DAS never had jurisdiction over Robben who was a pre-trial defendant t the time. DAS only had jurisdiction over convicted “probationers” not “pre-trial defendants” according to the law under NRS 211A that governs DAS. The law was modified in July 2013 by Senate Bill 101 (“SB101″) to give DAS jurisdiction over pre-trial defendants, however Robben’s issues occurred in 2012.

This shows a clear pattern of abuse of power and acting under the color of law to carry out a personal vendetta against Robben and a cover-up of the hit-and-run by former NDOT Director Susan Martinovich.

Robben has a pending lawsuit in the Reno Federal Court related to this case and now he can show the “malicious prosecution” claim is valid since the conviction was reversed in Robben’s favor.

Robben has been very vocal about the rampant corruption in Nevada and especially Carson City where a corrupt Sheriff department, DA and Court system conspired and acted outside the law to harass Robben using the criminal justice system. Robben has performed numerious high profile protests in front of the State capitol and the Carson City court related to an array of issues including backdated court filings, withheld evidence, NHP corruption (editied dashcam video) the CCSO cover-up for Susan Martinovich’s hit-and-run and Judge Tatro, DA Neil Rombardoand ADA Mark Krueger’s corruption and abuse of office.

Vern Pierson protest

Vern Pierson protest

Why can Ty protest?

Mr. Ty Robben protested in front of the DA’s Office.  I believe District Attorney Vern Pierson said at that time that Mr. Robben had a First Amendment right to protest.

Since then, Mr. Robben was arrested on false charges in Nevada and those charges were dropped.1st amendment

I’m asking Mr. Pierson to expound on his interpretation of the Constitutional Rights of a citizen to protest so that all citizens will feel safe should we feel the need to protest as Ty Robben did.

  • Justice InsiderJune 19, 2014 – 9:06 pmMs. Weltee, DA Pierson has never interfered in a persons right to protest. I can’t recall him ever filing charges on anybody who chooses to protest peacefully. (Peacefully, meaning not causing harm to others or property damage) Mr. Robben protested and Mr. Pierson didn’t interfere. Mr. Robben had some issues in Nevada, however that’s another state.Reply | Report abusive comment

In fact, he was very respectful, and I respect him for that part unlike the thugs in Nevada like Carson City “Judge” John Tatro, DA Neil Rombardo and his corrupt assistant Mark Krueger and the CCSO Sheriff Ken Furlong. I was arrested by the Nevada idiots with all charges being dropped and now I am suing them in Federal Court for an array of Constitutional violations including 1st amendment and malicious prosecution, etc. So as bad as Vern Pierson may be, he’s not as bad as the criminals in Carson City!Reply | Report abusive comment

FBI Color of Law Abuses

Gavel

U.S. law enforcement officers and other officials like judges, prosecutors, and security guards have been given tremendous power by local, state, and federal government agencies—authority they must have to enforce the law and ensure justice in our country. These powers include the authority to detain and arrest suspects, to search and seize property, to bring criminal charges, to make rulings in court, and to use deadly force in certain situations.

Preventing abuse of this authority, however, is equally necessary to the health of our nation’s democracy. That’s why it’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. “Color of law” simply means that the person is using authority given to him or her by a local, state, or federal government agency.

The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating color of law abuses, which include acts carried out by government officials operating both within and beyond the limits of their lawful authority. Off-duty conduct may be covered if the perpetrator asserted his or her official status in some way.

During 2012, 42 percent of the FBI’s total civil rights caseload involved color of law issues—there were 380 color of law cases opened during the year. Most of the cases involved crimes that fell into into five broad areas:

  • Excessive force;
  • Sexual assaults;
  • False arrest and fabrication of evidence;
  • Deprivation of property; and
  • Failure to keep from harm.

Excessive force: In making arrests, maintaining order, and defending life, law enforcement officers are allowed to use whatever force is “reasonably” necessary. The breadth and scope of the use of force is vast—from just the physical presence of the officer…to the use of deadly force. Violations of federal law occur when it can be shown that the force used was willfully “unreasonable” or “excessive.”

Sexual assaults by officials acting under color of law can happen in jails, during traffic stops, or in other settings where officials might use their position of authority to coerce an individual into sexual compliance. The compliance is generally gained because of a threat of an official action against the person if he or she doesn’t comply.

False arrest and fabrication of evidence: The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right against unreasonable searches or seizures. A law enforcement official using authority provided under the color of law is allowed to stop individuals and, under certain circumstances, to search them and retain their property. It is in the abuse of that discretionary power—such as an unlawful detention or illegal confiscation of property—that a violation of a person’s civil rights may occur.

Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure. In the case of deprivation of property, the color of law statute would be violated by unlawfully obtaining or maintaining a person’s property, which oversteps or misapplies the official’s authority.

The Fourteenth Amendment secures the right to due process; the Eighth Amendment prohibits the use of cruel and unusual punishment. During an arrest or detention, these rights can be violated by the use of force amounting to punishment (summary judgment). The person accused of a crime must be allowed the opportunity to have a trial and should not be subjected to punishment without having been afforded the opportunity of the legal process.

Failure to keep from harm: The public counts on its law enforcement officials to protect local communities. If it’s shown that an official willfully failed to keep an individual from harm, that official could be in violation of the color of law statute.

Filing a Complaint

To file a color of law complaint, contact your local FBI office by telephone, in writing, or in person. The following information should be provided:

  • All identifying information for the victim(s);
  • As much identifying information as possible for the subject(s), including position, rank, and agency employed;
  • Date and time of incident;
  • Location of incident;
  • Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any witness(es);
  • A complete chronology of events; and
  • Any report numbers and charges with respect to the incident.

You may also contact the United States Attorney’s Office in your district or send a written complaint to:

Assistant Attorney General
Civil Rights Division
Criminal Section
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, Northwest
Washington, DC 20530

FBI investigations vary in length. Once our investigation is complete, we forward the findings to the U.S. Attorney’s Office within the local jurisdiction and to the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., which decide whether or not to proceed toward prosecution and handle any prosecutions that follow.

Civil Applications

Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 makes it unlawful for state or local law enforcement agencies to allow officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or U.S. laws. This law, commonly referred to as the Police Misconduct Statute, gives the Department of Justice authority to seek civil remedies in cases where law enforcement agencies have policies or practices that foster a pattern of misconduct by employees. This action is directed against an agency, not against individual officers. The types of issues which may initiate a pattern and practice investigation include:

  • Lack of supervision/monitoring of officers’ actions;
  • Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force;
  • Lack of, or improper training of, officers; and
  • Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.

Under Title 42, U.S.C., Section 1997, the Department of Justice has the ability to initiate civil actions against mental hospitals, retardation facilities, jails, prisons, nursing homes, and juvenile detention facilities when there are allegations of systemic derivations of the constitutional rights of institutionalized persons.

Report Civil Rights Violations

Resources

The various Judges(Judge Harold “Hal” G. Albright, Judge Charles McGee and Federal Judge Miranda Du)  involved in the various legal proceedings involving Ty Robben and the Carson City DA Neil Rombardo, Mark Krueger and Judge Tatro have a mandatory duty by law under the Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct and canons to report John Tatro, Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger to the appropriate authorities. In this case that would be the FBI, the State Bar and the Commission on Judicial Discipline.

Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct:

Rule 2.14.  Disability and Impairment.  A judge having a reasonable belief that the performance of a lawyer or another judge is impaired by drugs or alcohol, or by a mental, emotional, or physical condition, shall take appropriate action, which may include a confidential referral to a lawyer or judicial assistance program.

COMMENT

      [1] “Appropriate action” means action intended and reasonably likely to help the judge or lawyer in question address the problem and prevent harm to the justice system. Depending upon the circumstances, appropriate action may include but is not limited to speaking directly to the impaired person, notifying an individual with supervisory responsibility over the impaired person, or making a referral to an assistance program.

      [2] Taking or initiating corrective action by way of referral to an assistance program may satisfy a judge’s responsibility under this Rule. Assistance programs have many approaches for offering help to impaired judges and lawyers, such as intervention, counseling, or referral to appropriate health care professionals. Depending upon the gravity of the conduct that has come to the judge’s attention, however, the judge may be required to take other action, such as reporting the impaired judge or lawyer to the appropriate authority, agency, or body. See Rule 2.15.

      Rule 2.15.  Responding to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct.

      (A) A judge having knowledge that another judge has committed a violation of this Code that raises a substantial question regarding the judge’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a judge in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (B) A judge having knowledge that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question regarding the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (C) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that another judge has committed a violation of this Code shall take appropriate action.

      (D) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct shall take appropriate action.

COMMENT

      [1] Taking action to address known misconduct is a judge’s obligation. Paragraphs (A) and (B) impose an obligation on the judge to report to the appropriate disciplinary authority the known misconduct of another judge or a lawyer that raises a substantial question regarding the honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness of that judge or lawyer. Ignoring or denying known misconduct among one’s judicial colleagues or members of the legal profession undermines a judge’s responsibility to participate in efforts to ensure public respect for the justice system. This Rule limits the reporting obligation to those offenses that an independent judiciary must vigorously endeavor to prevent.

      [2] A judge who does not have actual knowledge that another judge or a lawyer may have committed misconduct but receives information indicating a substantial likelihood of such misconduct, is required to take appropriate action under paragraphs (C) and (D). Appropriate action may include, but is not limited to, communicating directly with the judge who may have violated this Code, communicating with a supervising judge, or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body. Similarly, actions to be taken in response to information indicating that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct may include but are not limited to communicating directly with the lawyer who may have committed the violation or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body.

      Rule 2.16.  Cooperation With Disciplinary Authorities.

      (A) A judge shall cooperate and be candid and honest with judicial and lawyer disciplinary agencies.

      (B) A judge shall not retaliate, directly or indirectly, against a person known or suspected to have assisted or cooperated with an investigation of a judge or a lawyer.

COMMENT

      [1] Cooperation with investigations and proceedings of judicial and lawyer discipline agencies, as required in paragraph (A), instills confidence in judges’ commitment to the integrity of the judicial system and the protection of the public.

Carson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

Taxpayer money spent on RETALIATION

By Geoff Dornan

The Carson City District Attorney’s office is moving to reinstate criminal charges against Ty Robben — including that he tried to solicit a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Two cases involving Robben were turned over to the Douglas County DA’s office after Senior District Judge Charles McGee in Reno disqualified the Carson DA’s office from handling them.

Front page story: DA Moves to retaliate against Ty Robben

In the request for reappointment, Assistant DA Mark Krueger emphasized that the Carson DA’s office “reviews the evidence provided by law enforcement and charges only those crimes in which the Carson City District Attorney’s office believes occurred and can be proven at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.”

However the Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed all 6 charges and counts due to lack of probable cause, the lower standard and the highest standard beyond a reasonable doubt.

Those charges included 3 felonies, gross misdemeanors and the most serious class B felony of solicitation of murder on a judge.

Levi Minor

Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

The libel charged was dismissed because what Robben said was in fact, true.

Robben reported on his website that Carson City resident Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

Robben reported the motive was that Minor’s mother, who also worked at the courthouse,  had an affair with Judge Tatro.

Robben confirmed that Minor told him this in person when he was in custody in the Carson City jail.

Robben also reported on the alleged breathalyzer test requirements for Judge Tatro before he takes the bench and related DUIs.

Judge Tatro also was offended when Roben made him look like the joker.

JUDGE TATRO JOKERjudge john tatro team

The bottom line and the facts are Robben did  not solicited murder on Judge Tatro, instead it was the other way around when Robben’s cell-mate (cellie) named Keith Furr attempted to solicit Robben. Robben informed his lawyers and the FBI about the situation prior to being charged. Robben could not report the incident to the Carson City Sheriff (CCSO) since they were the one setting him up. The CCSO would not respond to Robben’s inmate request forms and stole his legal papers. The CCSO still has Robben’s computers after the Douglas County DA has released the property.

The CCSO alleges Furr wore a “wire” to secretly record Robben in his cell conspiring with Furr to hire a hit man for a “roofing job”. The recording show Furr solicited Robben and Robben declined. Robben has recording to his lawyers on the phone telling them to contact the FBI immediately because the CCSO is covering up the Tatro shooting incident and they are setting me up with a guy selling me a hit man to kill Judge Tatro. Why would Robben be calling the FBI if he was going to have a hit man kill the judge?

hit man contract out for Judge TatroHowever, Furr later admitted to other inmates in jail he did not were a wire and instead the CCSO secretly surreptitiously listened to the conversations in the cell via the intercom system normally used for emergencies. The CCSO coerced Furr into saying he wore a wire and fabricated a header on the digital audio to make it appear Furr wore a wire. The audio was illegally edited which is tampering of evidence. jp tatro ruthless and toothless

The CCSO and DA needed Furr to allege he wore a wire in order for the evidence to be admissible in court. However, by fabricating the evidence and witness testimony, the CCSO and DA have actually committed crimes against Robben. Robben also said the CCSO listened to all his phone calls which is legal, however the CCSO also listened in on all his attorney conversations in the visiting area via the intercom system just like they did in his cell 24 hours a day. Everything was digitally recorded and mined for anything that could be used against Robben. Inmates are not entitled to privacy in jail, however the secretly surreptitiously recorded data would test the law and show how far the CCSO and Carson City DA went to set up Robben.

Kenny FurlongThe CCSO, DA and Sr. Judge Harold “Hal” Albright  (presiding over the cases due to conflict of interests with all Carson Judges and Justice of Peace including JP Tatro and JP Armstrong) dismissed all pending charges against Furr in order to coerce Furr to testify against Robben, however the audio shows Furr doing the solicitation.  Keith Furr has a long criminal record and is currently in jail in Lyon County for serious charges including arson.

Lyon Deputies Arrest Dayton Man Wanted on Several Charges

Keith Wayne Furr of Dayton

Lyon County deputies have arrested a man they say was wanted on drug and stolen property property charges.

Deputies had been searching for 51-year-old Keith Wayne Furr of Dayton all weekend after receiving a felon warrant for possessing stolen property.

Around 9:45pm Sunday, they received a tip Furr was spotted at his trailer located in the 1000 block of Highway 50. When deputies arrived, they found Furr packing personal belongings into a vehicle. They say when he saw them, he ran away, and after losing him for a brief time, they found running east along Highway 50.

Furr was eventually arrested after a brief struggle.

During the investigation, deputies say an associate of Furr — 43-year-old Melanie Sandomierski of Dayton — was also arrested for harboring a fugitive for possession of a controlled substance.

Furr is charged with principle to possession of stolen property, resisting arrest, criminal contempt (Carson City Justice Court Warrant), possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of extended protection order.

Furr’s bail is set at $15,920 while Sandomierski’s bail is set at $12,500.

Carson City sheriff’s officers make numerous drug, misdemeanor arrests over weekend

Two men were arrested Sept. 27 and face felony drug charges after Carson City Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team officers found methamphetamine in a console of a van. Both men denied the meth was theirs.

Keith Wayne Furr, 51, and William Dale French, 42, of Dayton were arrested in the 4900 block of Highway 50 East at 5:28 p.m.

According to the arrest report, an officer was patrolling eastbound Highway 50 near Sunrise Road when he noticed a Chevy van with an expired California plate traveling westbound. The officer followed the van to a mobile home park where it drove into a space. The men got out of the vehicle and went around to the back of a mobile home. The men were given instructions to stop what they were doing and put up their hands, which they didn’t do, each rummaging through their pockets, according to the arrest report.

French told officers that he was a passenger in the van and was just getting a ride. He stated that Furr saw the officer on Highway 50 and stated he knew it was a cop. French told officers that Furr was nervous and drove quickly into the mobile home park. He said they didn’t know anyone who lived in the mobile home park.

A K9 did a drug sniff of the yard of the mobile home park where the dog located a small amount of marijuana along with some cash near a grill. French was asked about the marijuana and he stated it was Furr’s and he is the one who hid it. Officers spoke with Furr who stated that French was the one with the marijuana and was hid it. Furr also stated he knew the officers who stopped him were part of the SET team from the sheriff’s office when he was driving on Highway 50, according to the arrest report.

Department of Alternative Sentencing assisted with the investigation as it was learned that Furr was on a list that allowed for searches. The K9 conducted the search of the van. In the van a hypodermic device was found along with a small amount of methamphetamine and another open bottle of alcohol in the middle console of the van, within reach of both men, the arrest report states.

Officers again asked both about the meth and hypodermic device. Furr said it belonged to French and French said it belonged to Furr, the arrest report states.

Officers then learned that the rear plate of the van had a valid 2014 registration sticker however the registration was expired as of 2010, according to California DMV. The plate was taken for evidence and later booked at the sheriff’s office for fictitious registration. Dispatched advised Furr did not have a valid license in Nevada or California.

Both men were booked. Furr faces the following charges: felony possession of methamphetamine, gross misdemeanor destruction of evidence. Misdemeanors include possession of marijuana, no valid driver’s license, expired registration, no proof of insurance, possession of a hypodermic device, violation of conditions, open container and fictitious registration. Bail: $11,179. French faces a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine and a gross misdemeanor charge of destruction of evidence. He also faces the following misdemeanor charges: Possession of marijuana, possession of a hypodermic device and open container. Bail: $6,874.

Carson City Sheriff’s Office report details initial arrest that led to recovery of 60 stolen weapons

More details have emerged following the arrest Friday of a Dayton man that led to Carson City and Lyon County authorities to recover approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen vehicle and narcotics. Three others were also arrested.

Keith Furr, 52, was arrested on charges of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, contempt of court and criminal contempt and is being held in Carson City with a bail of $23,500.

According to the arrest report, deputies were dispatched Friday at around 3 p.m. to the area of Clearview Drive and South Edmonds after a person called dispatch to advise there was a vehicle stuck on top of the next to Prison Hill.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

The man immediately attempted to walk past the officers and appeared nervous, making movements like he was about to run from the officers, the arrest report states.

The officers asked the man who the gun belonged to and Furr said a man that he did not know handed the weapon and a case to him and told him to carry it to the top of the hill. Furr stated the man would meet him shortly thereafter, the arrest report states.

Deputy Kepler walked to the vehicle and checked the license plate through dispatch and advised the plate came back to a subject in Lyon County and then walked back to speak with Furr. As the officer returned, Sgt. Humphrey informed the deputies that Furr was a felon. Furr also admitted to this, the arrest report states. Deputy Kepler and Trotter took the man into custody at 5:12 p.m. for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.

Dispatch advised Furr was on alternative sentencing, which then placed a hold on Furr for violation of conditions of probation and violation of a court monitored sentence.

Through the combined efforts Carson City Sheriff’s Office and Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, four people were arrested for felony and misdemeanor charges and parole violations. During the investigation approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen Chevy pickup with a camper shell and illegal narcotics were recovered, authorities from both agencies said.

Both Carson City Sheriff’s Office SET and Lyon County Gang Unit are still following up on leads to other crimes and suspects as a result of the arrests. Because of the investigation and leads into the case, the names of the three other suspects have not been released.

Krueger declined to comment on the filing, but the court document states that his office maintains “there has never been a conflict of interest” in the cases against Robben.

Carson City DA Neil Rombardo is corrupt

Robben, meanwhile, is taking his claims the office is unconstitutionally harassing him, violating his rights and covering up corruption in the Carson judicial system to the federal level.

He said he will sue the DA’s office and Krueger in federal court and that he has already been interviewed by the FBI.

See Robben’s website here:

Robben’s troubles began when he was terminated from the Department of Taxation. His appeals of the termination were rejected at every level.

Robben claims the termination was retaliation for exposing corruption in the Nevada Department of Taxation. The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper did a story on Robben’s claims that the new $50 million dollar computer IT system had serious problems costing the State money. Robben also complained about other issues including the mine audits and personnel issues with other employees engaging in inappropriate behavior. Robben’s co-worker Morgan Canfield send numerous pornographic emails to other employees over the State email system and IT director Vince Cherpeski used inappropriate language and discriminated against employees. A Taxation employee other than Robben was so upset with Cherpeski they defecated on his desk!

Taxation Department losing tens of millions of dollars a year, ex-employees say

CARSON CITY — The state is losing tens of millions of dollars a year in tax revenue because of an inefficient computer system that prevents department auditors from reviewing the tax records of companies in a timely manner, according to two former Nevada Taxation Department employees.

Dino DiCianno explains everything

They place the blame primarily on a computer system that, while not antiquated, is slower and not user friendly, saying that a new system is needed.

The department’s annual report, released Jan. 15, shows 1.24 percent of businesses in the state were audited during the past fiscal year, almost half the total in the 2006-07 year, just before a new $40 million tax accounting system went online.

They also said that mismanagement by former Taxation Director Dino DiCianno has contributed to the department’s inability to perform more audits and that he deliberately stopped audits of the mining industry. DiCianno closed the agency’s Elko office in June 2010 as part of a cost-cutting plan by former Gov. Jim Gibbons, though the mining industry was booming and the auditor there could have recovered millions in unpaid mining taxes, they said.

DiCianno, who did not return a phone call seeking comments Tuesday, abruptly retired from state government in March, a day after telling legislators that mining companies had not been audited for two years because he lacked qualified auditors to check their records.

Taxation Department executives told legislators that the mining industry operated on a “self-reporting” tax system.

After DiCianno’s departure, new Gov. Brian Sandoval required the department to undertake mining industry audits.

That work produced $1.2 million in additional revenue from audits in the fiscal year that ended June 30, although the employees said much more could have been secured except for a three-year statute of limitations on unpaid taxes.

Still the employees and their union representative said far more revenue could be secured if the number of audits returned to the total of past years.

“It is our members’ assertion the total number of audits is down because of the computer and software system,” said Vishnu Subramaniam, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 4041. “Individuals have to pay their fair share of taxes. We should expect the same from Nevada businesses.”

Although no one was critical of his performance, new Taxation Director William Chisel did not return three messages left by the Review-Journal on his office phone over the past week and a half.

Sandoval, however, expressed support Tuesday for Chisel, adding it is the director’s plan to concentrate audits on companies where the returns can be greater.

“I will have a conversation with the director,” Sandoval said. “Mr. Chisel’s background is as an auditor. They are developing systems to go after the higher returning entities.”

Subramaniam arranged for the two former Taxation Department employees to speak with a Review-Journal reporter. They both requested anonymity.

One is still employed in state government. He said he told legislators before the meeting in March that DiCianno was not having the department audit mining companies.

He said he previously worked for a mining company and is proficient in auditing their records. Instead, he was assigned to audit businesses where the return for the state was far less.

This employee said no net proceeds of minerals audits were performed for 10 years.

“We did sales tax audits. We did business tax audits. We did everything but net proceeds of minerals,” he said. “I was stifled by Dino (DiCianno).”

The other source, who said he is familiar with the computer system, said, “It wasn’t right from the beginning. It has been completely dysfunctional.”

The system will not even properly add up numbers, he said.

As an example, he said the system software would show a 990 answer for adding up a group of numbers with an actual sum of 1,000. Replacing it with a new system would cost $100 million, he added.

Auditors for the Taxation Department do not need accounting degrees but can take a couple of night courses to qualify for the job, according to the former taxation auditor. He said pay is too low to attract highly qualified people.

According to the state Personnel Division, tax auditors are paid $39,108 to $69,029 a year, depending on their experience.

A person with a high school degree with previous auditing experience who has completed six credit hours of college accounting classes can be an auditor.

“I would always collect or recover five times or more what I earn,” he said. “The jobs pay for themselves.”

The annual report shows salary expenditures by the Taxation Department increased by about $450,000 to slightly more than $20 million a year in the past fiscal year.

Subramaniam said Sandoval needs to take the leadership to ensure the Taxation Department does more audits and businesses know they are being watched so they will pay their taxes, but with a 1.24 percent audit rate, businesses realize they can fudge their taxes with impunity.

“The least we could be doing is to ensure that Nevada businesses are paying their fair share in taxes — that they are paying what they’re supposed to be paying,” Subramaniam said.

Charges dropped: DA protester out of prison

By 
From page A1 | April 18, 2014 | 3 Comments

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.”

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.

Ty Robben AKA “Top Ramen” (new name obtained at the Carson City jailhouse since it sounds like his name)

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.

vern pierson

caulfield law firmPlease share and like this story on Facebook, email to your friends and press – Crime Victims have RIGHTS!

Thanks against to the El Dorado Newswire, the Placerville press covered this story as more people learn about the abuse of office in El Dorado County by Vern Pierson. See: http://www.inedc.com/1-5544

Corrupt El Dorado County District Attorney  Vern Pierson hires private civil attorney Andrew T. Caulfield and is spending thousands of Taxpayer dollars to quash a set California “victims Rights” laws established by proposition 9 and created the 2008 amendment of the California Constitution known as Marsy’s Law.

DA Vern Pierson believes victims are not “beneficially interest” persons when they have been victimized by a crime such as murder, rape, robbery, pedophilia,  assault, battery, and other acts of terror.

El Dorado County resident Ty Robben from South Lake Tahoe believes otherwise.

After doing the research,  Ty found out that the new Constitutional amendments in Article 1, Section 28 of Cali’s constitution have made Crime Victims “beneficially interest” persons for a number of profound points and authorities.

Ty say’s Vern Pierson is relying on outdated case law prior to 2008. “Marsy’s Law trumps the earlier case law based on the first variant of  California’s Crime Victim rights.”

“I indent to make this matter case law” says Ty. It needs to be established the Crime Victims now have rights even-though the prosecutors  and courts and certain judges don’t like it, too bad.

The other point is that prosecutors must comply, by law, with the Brady Disclosure Law. Failure to do so is a crime and treason. The Brady Disclosure Law tells the District Attorney to not prosecute an innocent person and exculpatory evidence must be given the the Defendant – not hidden and withheld.

On the other hand, we need the opposite Law of a Brady Disclosure Law where the prosecutor must not cover-up prima facie evidence to cover-up criminal activity to protect the criminal based on fabricated or withheld evidence. The DA needs to provide a “rational basis” when the prima facie evidence is smacked in front of his face. “What we have here, is a failure to communicate” says Ty Robben. When the DA obstructs justice, we have people getting murdered like John O’ Sullivan and numerous others under the murder-by-proxy pattern of conduct by Vern Pierson.

prima facie is Latin expression meaning on its first encounter, first blush, or at first sight. The literal translation would be “at first face” or “at first appearance”, from the feminine form of primus (“first”) and facies (“face”), both in the ablative case. It is used in modern legal English to signify that on first examination, a matter appears to be evident from the facts. In common law jurisdictions, prima facie denotes evidence that – unless rebutted – would be sufficient to prove a particular proposition or fact. The term is used similarly in academic philosophy. Most legal proceedings require a prima facie case to exist, following which proceedings may then commence to test it, and create a ruling.

Marsy’s Law, the California Victims’ Bill of Rights Act of 2008, is an Amendment to the state’s Constitution and certain Penal Code sections enacted by voters through the initiative process in the November 2008 general election. The Act protects and expands the legal rights of victims of crime to include 17 rights in the judicial process, including the right to legal standing, protection from the defendant, notification of all court proceedings, and restitution, as well as granting parole boards far greater powers to deny inmates parole.[1] (more…)

Dennis Justin

Dennis Justin admits guilt

Dennis Justin of the Justin Brothers Bail Bonds admits he was at the crime scene and makes the wild accusation Ty Robben is being investigated by SLTPD for “threatening” Governor Jerry Brown! This keeps getting crazy folks. Sit back and listen to this.

UPDATE: As of June 04, 2013 SLTPD confirms there was never an “investigation” into Ty Robben threatening California Jerry Brown, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval or anyone else. Just more perjury by Dennis Justin.

Okay, so now Vern Pierson’s statement “we have no proof,” that the guy was there. So now, the US Supreme Court demands that a “rational basis” for continued favoritism where certain favored individuals are not prosecuted, even when they admit “being responsible. Enquist v. Oregon was originated from the our circuit courts in Olech v. Willowbrook. The supreme court demands that officials no longer arbitrary enforced the law, especially when it violates the California constitution, Marcy’s Law, Article 28.

In the Placerville news story below, DA Vern Pierson and Bill Clark allege Dennis Justin was not at the scene-of-the-crime.

…Well, it looks like the truth has come out!

After Robben’s attorney spoke with the District Attorney’s Office, Robben revealed that the reason they are not prosecuted is that they “can’t prove Dennis Justin was here.” He said that Justin never denied it, however, and again pointed out that Justin allegedly admitted to slashing Robben’s tires. If there is no prosecution, Robben said, he will call for the resignations of Pierson and deputy district attorney Bill Clark, who is handling the case.

Richard Justin, brother of Dennis Justin, said that they would be unable to comment on the matter due to pending lawsuits. But, “the truth will come out,” he said.

Man protests corruption outside courthouse, DA’s Office

IMG_20130520_131902A protest concerning possible corruption in El Dorado County was the result of what the organizer described as a kidnapping and assault by bounty hunters illegally trying to detain him.

Todd “Ty” Robben, a former IT worker for the Nevada Department of Taxation, was arrested after he supposedly harassed a member of the Nevada Department of Transportation. He said, however, that he was simply trying to serve her a subpoena.

“She was complaining she had not been personally served,” he said, so he went in person to do it. As a result, a district attorney in Carson City, Nev. charged him with assault and disturbing the peace.

The roles were seemingly reversed when bounty hunters showed up at Robben’s door, kicking it in, tasing him three times and slashing his tires, he claimed. (more…)

Doug Lewis Nevada Bounty Hunter with Justin Brothers Bail Bonds

Doug Lewis Nevada Bounty Hunter with Justin Brothers Bail Bonds

Five misdemeanor charges have been filed against a Carson City bounty hunter in regards to his actions in South Lake Tahoe.

Douglas Lewis with Justin Brothers Bail Bonds has been charged with unlawful arrest, aggravated trespass, vandalism, battery and damaging a vehicle.

The incident occurred in October at the South Lake Tahoe home of Ty Robben. Robben wanted felony charges filed against the suspect. He said the bounty hunters broke down his door and used a Taser on him.

Robben has since filed a civil suit against the Carson City firm and has protested the Justin Brothers with the large crime scene tape. “Protesting will continue against the Justin Bros for the duration” Robben said.

It was the delay in action that led Robben in January to protest near the South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

Bounty Hunter Douglas Lewis will face five misdemeanor charges in connection  with an October 18 incident at the Sierra Tract home of local resident Todd ”Ty ” Robben, in which he attempted to take Robben into custody on a misdemeanor contempt of court warrant out of Carson City. See http://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2013/03/03/justin-brothers-bail-bonds-illegally-broke-into-home-illegally-used-a-taser-on-ty-robben/

Robben’s door was broken down. he was “tased” at least twice, his tires were slashed and he had to bolt into a nearby field to escape, according to a South Lake Tahoe Police report. The charges against Lewis, filed by the EI Dorado County District Attorney’s office, include allegedly failing to obtain a California warrant for the capture of Robben, aggravated trespass for allegedly forcing his way into Robben’s home, alleged vandalism of a dwelling for breaking down the door, alleged battery for tasing Robben, and alleged damage to a vehicle for slashing Robben’s tires. Doug Lewis could not be reached for comment by press time.

Robben sought more serious felony charges and wonders why other individuals accompanying and assisting Lewis were not charged as well. He said he was nevertheless “relieved” that El Dorado County authorities had acted, and that his faith in the system had been restored somewhat after months of frustration over the handling of the case.

Robben protested in front of the South Lake Tahoe Police Department in late January. claiming the police were failing to take him seriously and investigate his case in a timely manner, due to his activism against government and a negative portrait painted of him by law enforcement in Nevada.

Hans Uthe, the Tahoe-based assistant district attorney. Said felony charges were not filed against Lewis largely because he had failed to get clearance from a California judge. “As a professional bounty hunter he should have known he had to do that. It would have been very easy for him to do.” And though Lewis was apparently assisted by others in his attempt to capture Robben, only he is being charged because he was the leader or boss of the pursuit, said Uthe. ” It was hi s decisions, his determinations how to proceed.” Uthe said. “We’re holding him responsible.”

In statements on the matter, police officials said they had made every effort to accommodate Robben, given time and staffing constraints. The police report was completed and released after the Tahoe Mountain News filed a California Public Records Act request.

Robben did compliment the police department for finishing the report when it did . The 164-page report contained 14 pages devoted to investigation of the alleged crimes and 150 pages of applicable statutes and legal precedents submitted by Robben.

Justin Brothers Bail Bonds

Justin Brothers Bail Bonds

Robben has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the bail bond company, Justin Brothers Bail Bonds, that employed Lewis and has also protested in front of the their Carson City and Reno offices. Owner Dennis Justin said he had “no comment what so ever” about the suit or the charges filed against Lewis.

See http://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/charges-filed-in-justin-bros-bail-bonds-bounty-hunter-case/

At the time of Lewis’s alleged crimes against Robben, Robben was out on bail on charges including assault after attempting to serve a subpoena for a friend on a Nevada state official named Susan Martinovich with the Department of Transportation. The friend had filed suit against the department, claiming he was fired for exposing wrongdoing. The suit is similar to one filed by Robben against the Nevada Department of Taxation, his former employer, which is currently on appeal. Robben calls himself a “supporter of whistleblowers.”

The woman being served said she felt threatened and was accosted by Robben and later received a restraining order against him. Robben said the situation was all turned around and that she assaulted him by driving over his toe. Eventually. All charges were dropped,  except one – disorderly conduct – which will be dismissed if Robben complies with court conditions for a year.

Robben does have two other restraining orders against him including one by his brother from whom he has been estranged for five years with absolutely no contact and who lives in Florida. The other one was issued under false pretenses to an employee in his previous place of work who was angry with Robben reported him for sending pornography over government computers, Robben said.

The contempt of court warrant was issued – in error by Carson city Judge John Tatro, says Robben – after he supposedly failed to show up for a court check-in. The matter was cleared up when he later checked in.

Amnesty International has classified lasers as deadly weapons.

Noted bail bondsmen and bounty hunter Leonard Padilla commented on the actions of the bounty hunters. The easiest way to catch a fugitive is to talk them into surrendering, said Padilla. Something the bounty hunters allegedly did with Robben for ten minutes according to the police report, before breaking down his door which is permitted, said Padilla. If one is 100 percent sure. not 80 percent sure. Not 98 percent sure, but 100 percent sure, that the fugitive is inside. He said tasers must be deployed with care so as not to cause undue harm. “Not everyone can go and buy a taser and s tart tasing people. You have to have special training” Padilla said. Amnesty International has classified lasers as deadly weapons. Finally, the slashing of tires perplexed Padilla. After nearly 40 years in business, he has never used such a tactic, which he called “childish” and “comical.” The best time to catch someone is when they leave a dwelling to go to a car, he said. Or as they drive off.

In the police report, the bounty hunters said they didn’t ‘t want Robben to drive in what they said was a fragile mental slat. Stating he had been under psychiatric care, an assertion Robben vehemently denies. He was put on suicide watch
while initially in the Carson City jail,  a tactic used to imprison him in solitary confinement. Robben wrote he has been “certified as sane … has no prior criminal record … has never been hospitalized for mental health! This is character assassination’ of me.” He earlier provided a letter to the Mountain News from the EI Dorado County Department of Mental Health stating he does not qualify for services, so is therefore of sound mind, said Robben.

Additionally. Robben contends, police officers stood by while the bounty hunters went about their allegedly illegal activities and did not intervene while he was attacked and pursued. The report does not note any action taken by South Lake Tahoe police and states an officer was in the area at the time.

Bounty hunters do have broad powers to pursue, capture and detain fugitives. The report also said police declined to assist the bounty hunters given it was a misdemeanor, non-extraditable warrant out of another state. The report said the South Lake Tahoe Police did briefly search for Robben after he ran to try and convince him to give himself up. South Lake Tahoe Police spokesman Lt. David Stevenson said he would not comment further. The report said the bounty hunters continued to search for Robben for five hours after he fled. Robben said he hiked to a friend’s house and furtively hid out in his RV so the friend would not be charged with harboring a fugitive. He then made his way to the Black Jack Inn at Stateline where he watched the Giants win the playoffs

Tasers are consider lethal weapons and they kill people. Similar taser lawsuits address the seriousness of taser use.

Taser safety issues

Critics argue that Tasers and other high-voltage stun devices can cause cardiac arrhythmia in susceptible subjects, possibly leading to heart attack or death in minutes by ventricular fibrillation, which leads to cardiac arrest and—if not treated immediately—to sudden death. People susceptible to this outcome are sometimes healthy and unaware of their susceptibility.

Ban-the-TasersAlthough the medical conditions or use of illegal drugs among some of the casualties may have been the proximate cause of death, the electric shock of the Taser can significantly heighten such risk for subjects in an at-risk category.[1]

“Non-lethal” designation

While they are not technically considered lethal, some authorities and non-governmental organizations question both the degree of safety presented by the weapon and the ethical implications of using a weapon that some, such as sections of Amnesty International, allege is inhumane. As a consequence, Amnesty International Canada and other civil liberties organizations have argued that a moratorium should be placed on Taser use until research can determine a way for them to be safely used.[7] Amnesty International has documented over 334 deaths that occurred after the use of tasers. Amnesty International. Police sources question whether the taser was the actual cause of death in those cases, as many of the deaths occurred in people with serious medical conditions and/or severe drug intoxication, often to the point of excited delirium.

CBC News Tests Tasers – Proves Tasers Unsafe!

Tasers No Longer a Non-Lethal Alternative for Law Enforcement

acluBy Rebecca McCray, ACLU Criminal Law Reform Project & Emma Andersson, Criminal Law Reform Project at 3:39pm

Tasers subject their victims to a 50,000 volt shock followed by 100 microsecond pulses of 1,200 volts.   Since 2001, more than 500 people in the United States have died after law enforcement officers used this weapon against them. A study published this week by the American Heart Association’s Circulation Journal confirms that the misuse of a Taser can cause sudden cardiac arrest and death.taser-x26-large

In theory, a Taser is intended to serve as a non-lethal method of control for law enforcement officers when they need to physically restrain a dangerous person. But as the new Circulation study demonstrates, Tasers cannot so simply be categorized as “non-lethal.” In addition, there are far too many instances in which officers have impulsively deployed Tasers against children, pregnant women and the mentally ill, even though the victims posed no real danger to either the officers or anyone else.

The new evidence that Tasers can cause cardiac arrest and death, coupled with the disturbing trend of officers using Tasers in flagrantly unnecessary situations, makes it all the more troubling that states do not uniformly or consistently govern or regulate officers’ use of Tasers. This means that Taser policies vary greatly between police departments, often leading to vague, outdated and inaccurate guidelines that result in misunderstanding about the misuse of these allegedly non-lethal weapons.

Taser training materials are mostly provided by Taser International, the private company that makes the weapon. Relying on a private, for-profit company that has a vested interest in promoting and selling their product for training guidelines is not only nonsensical, but dangerous. For example, though Taser International advises officers against administering a shock to the victim’s chest, it does not prohibit targeting this area. In fact, Taser minimizes the potential risk of death or cardiac trauma, instead emphasizing a need to insulate police officers – and itself – from the legal ramifications associated with a shock to the chest. The company goes on to recommend against aiming for the chest because “shots to the chest, particularly at close range, are frequently ineffective because of the lack of major muscle groups in the chest area.” It’s not difficult to see why relying on Taser International’s profit-seeking and liability-evading advice, rather than on rigorous and objective scientific evidence, is both unwise and unsafe.tazer gun

The new Circulation study should provoke us all – including and most importantly law enforcement agencies – to revisit when the deployment of a Taser is worth its serious risks. To be sure, law enforcement officers have a legitimate interest in protecting themselves and the public during potentially violent encounters, and for the victim, a Taser is generally a less lethal alternative to a firearm. But history demonstrates that law enforcement agencies have failed to create and implement Taser training policies that effectively educate officers about the risks involved and ensure that officers only use Tasers when actually necessary. Law enforcement agencies should review and revise their Taser policies so that officers can make informed and responsible decisions about when using a Taser is warranted. Particularly given the increasing – and disturbing – popularity and indiscriminate use of Tasers, police departments around the country must ensure that they use these lethal weapons responsibly, ethically and as safely as possible.

Angela Jones, a Los Angeles woman, suffered cardiac arrest after being shocked with a Taser gun by police during a traffic stop in June. The incident, which was caught on video by a California Highway Patrol dashboard camera, has once again raised questions about the safety of the weapon.

CBC report on the latest example of senseless use of deadly force by police, compounded by the routine lie that the police had been attacked by the victim. Since we already know Robert had no drugs or alcohol in his system, how long will it be until he’s diagnosed as suffering from “excited delirium syndrome” – the phony disorder invented by the Taser lobby to deny the obvious fact Tasers often kill people.

Justin Brothers Bail BondslawsuitMarin County has agreed to pay $1.9 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who accused sheriff’s deputies of shocking him with a Taser when he refused to go to the hospital after he fell. The county Board of Supervisors voted in closed session Tuesday to approve the settlement to Peter McFarland, 66, for an incident that “was not consistent with department policy,” said County Counsel Patrick Faulkner. “Federal law surrounding the use of Tasers is more restrictive today than it was in 2009, when deputies used a Taser to help take Peter McFarland in custody,” Faulkner said.

Good news: November 13, 2012 “Assault” charge was dropped and “dismissed” against Robben in the former NDOT Director Hit-and-Run case where Robben was actually hit and then wrongfully charged as he attempted to serve a subpoena to the evading former NDOT Director.

Nevada Appeal News covers the story:

Robben’s sentence deferred in disorderly conduct case
By Geoff Dornan gdornan@nevadaappeal.com
Ty Robben, who has been battling all levels of government since his termination from the Nevada Department of Taxation, has pleaded no contest to charges in a deal that resolves his case. In an email, Robben said his interpretation of the sequence of events is that all charges against him were dropped. Carson City Deputy District Attorney Travis Lucia, who prosecuted the case, said Robben pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct to settle charges against him. He said the deal requires Robben to comply with a variety of conditions designed to ensure good conduct and prevent harassment of other officials. Those conditions remain for a full year. “If he’s a good boy, it all goes away,” said District Attorney Neil Rombardo. “But if he keeps up the conduct he has been doing, we’re going to prosecute on anything new.” Robben was originally charged with assault after an incident in which he says he was attempting to serve a subpoena on NDOT Director Susan Martinovich to appear at a hearing involving a friend. That friend, Jim Richardson, is fighting to get his job as a state pilot back. Robben was originally charged after Martinovich asked for a restraining order, saying he followed her vehicle from NDOT to the Smith’s parking lot after she refused to see him. Martinovich wrote that, as she was getting into her  vehicle, “a man started running towards me yelling.” She said she felt threatened and drove away but that he grabbed the door handle of the vehicle and was pounding on the side of the car. After that arrest and a subsequent arrest for violating bail provisions, Robben spent several days in jail. He expanded his verbal attacks to include not only Justice of the Peace John Tatro but Sheriff Ken Furlong and District Attorney Neil Rombardo.

This NV Appeal story does cover the “differed” prosecution of the  “breach-of-peace” charge and fails to report that the main “Assault” charge was in fact “dismissed”. There was little choice with the coercion tactics and  having an extremely corrupt and bias bias judge named John Tatro in control of this sham. Robben was not going to have a fair judge handle this case and he was not going to have a jury trail as he requested. Instead the court recused Judge Tom Armstrong who may have offered a fair trail to Judge John Tatro where a definite conflict-of-interest persists.  Robben has laid down several reasons why Judge john Tatro should have been recused/disqualified from this case in court filings and in this website.

“He expanded his verbal attacks to include not only Justice of the Peace John Tatro but Sheriff Ken Furlong and District Attorney Neil Rombardo.”

We feel that the Taxpayers who pay these people deserve answers to legitimate questions about these “political” figures who are elected and are subject to public questioning, public ridicule exposing their corruption and even simple political hyperbole.

Our “opinion” is that the Carson City Sheriff under control of Ken Furlong (who also went to Carson HS with judge Tatro and  Martinovich) did cover-up the hit-and-run report and still has evaded giving the final reports to the insurance companies (as reported by the insurance company).  The  DA Neil Rombardo took the initial Sheriff report that never included  an “assault” or “breach-of-peace” charge and added these trumped up charges nearly 2-weeks after the incident where Robben was never initially charge or arrested. The time frame for the trumped up charges came after an embarrassing KRNV Fact Finder story that showed Martinovich in a bad light by evading service and the hit-and-run… Clearly the charges against Robben were trumped up retaliation by the DA who’s Deputy DA named Gerald Gardner immediately became Governor Brian Sandoval’s new Chief-of-Staff during all of this.

As to  Carson City Justice Court JUDGE JOHN TATRO we publicly ask you to answer truthfully to that rampant speculation in Carson City and Reno that you have been ARRESTED and SPENT TIME IN JAIL in Reno for one or more  DUI (Drunk Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol) and even another incident involving DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.  Do you Judge John Tarto have to (or had to) take a BREATHALYZER TEST BEFORE GETTING ON THE BENCH? More on this controversy will be made public as other people demand answers to these questions.  We understand a public demonstration is in the works to ask these very “questions” on large banners and extra large signs to be displayed in Carson City and Reno.

We also published reasons why JP Tatro should be recused earlier on the NSPW website including the fact John Tatro’s brother Tom Tatro worked for NDOT.
