Charges dropped: DA protester out of prison
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?
All charges against South Tahoe resident Ty Robben have now been dropped in jailhouse HIT MAN to kill corrupt Carson City Judge Tatro and Slander/Libel/Internet Stalking
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.
Thank you Douglas County DA Mark Jackson for respecting the US Constitution and my 1st & 14th Amendment rights in these matters and the honor to respect the law(s) and look at the facts unbiased.
Tatro claimed Robben was criminal libel for a posting found here: https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/the-shooter-of-judge-tatros-door-found-judge-tatro-caught-in-sex-triangle-revenge-scandal/
Robben also posted a story and photos of an alleged requirement for Judge Tatro to take a breathalyzer test prior to taking the bench everyday.
Special thanks Attorney Jarrod Hickman and to the entire State of Nevada Public Defenders office including the folks behind the scenes answering my numerous phone calls from jail.
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. Continue reading
