Yesterday Shelly O’Neill was so outraged at us for protesting in front of her office that she came out and grabbed the white sign and through it out into the street claiming “you are trespassing”.
Mike Weston went out into the busy street to retrieve his sign and we continued to protest.
Mike Weston made the sign however, he misspelled Nolan Klein’s last name.
He handwritten in pen ??? After the word judge.
Shelly committed the perjury during Nolan Klein’s 1991 post conviction hearing. In 1992 Nolan filed a perjury complaint against Shelly O’Neill and sent it to DA Dorothy Nash Holmes. Holmes sent back Klein’s complaint with a large red X marked on each page of his complaint.
I then filed a complaint a perjury complaint in 1992 with the Reno PD. The Detective believed she committed the perjury and he sent it to the D A’s office where it sat there by ADA Karl Hall until the Statute of Limitations ran out.
When Gammick got into office I received a letter from him saying that even if their office felt appropriate to charge O’Neill with perjury they could not because the statute of limitations had run out
In 2005 our book To Prove His Innocence came out Shelly was given the opportunity to make a comment. She received the manuscript and returned it without comment. She did not dispute that she had committed perjury.
Shelly actions resulted in Court Order’s being written. The the court’s did not know she had committed committed perjury during their decision making.
Did Shelly contact any if the courts and inform the courts that she had lied during the 1991 post conviction hearing? No she did not! She kept her secret that kept an innocence man in prison
In March 2007 Shelly O’Neill was being interviewed for the Washoe County Alternate Public Defender Conflict Unit position.
I spoke against her and presented the evidence of her perjury and a copy of the 2005 book. She did not get the position.
Did Shelly contact the courts and inform the courts that she lied during Nolan Klein’s 1991 post conviction hearing? No she did not! Her non-actions left him to remain in prison.
In 2009 Judge Brent Adams ordered DA Dick Gammick to turn all of the evidence in Nolan Klein’s case. When it was turned over there were over 200 documents mostly exculpatory evidence that was hidden by ADA Ron Rachow.
Had Rachow turned it over the exculpatory evidence there would have been no doubt that Klein would have found not guilty. Especially since the jury had been deadlocked to begin with.
Shelly never received this evidence but in in 1991 lied to the court that she had seen it. She couldn’t have because it is established by the handwritten notes found in Klein’s file that the ada Ron Rachow had defied the 1988 court order by Peter Breen to turn over all if the evidence.
After this 2009 discovery Mr. Klein’s attorneys were getting ready to file their motions for new trial and bail for Nolan Klein when they received word that Nolan Klein had just died in prison.
Nolan Klein spent 21 years incarcerated for a crime he did commit. In part, of his wrongful conviction was the ADA Rachow withholding the evidence from the defense and the perjury that Shelly had seen it when she couldn’t have because Rachow had never turned it over.
There is no doubt that Shelly’s lies to the court, public and to the press resulted in Mr. Klein remaining incarcerated and dying in prison.
In 2011 I found the Sparks Police Department’s prime suspect whose theory was this prime suspect committed the crime Nolan Klein Was convicted of in 1989.
The 2005 book To Prove His Innocence is about to be re-released with all if the new developments.
Shelly O’Neill the next a Reno Municipal Judge? Not on my watch!
