Carson Shitty Sheriff Furlong (who sleeps with a tranny and daugher is a meth addict) Says Violent Crimes Tied to Marijuana because it’s a very dangerous drug

Carson City Sheriff Kenny FurlongRecreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado Washington, Alaska and Washington, D.C.  But the Sheriff of Carson City says he does not want to see that in Nevada. During his 12 years as Sheriff, Furlong says he has not had any violent crimes involving meth and heroin, like you might expect. But he says it’s a different story with pot.

“Second to domestic violence, marijuana is at the top of our list of violent acts, here in Carson City,” Furlong said.

Furlong says if you exclude the deadly IHOP shooting in 2011, Carson City has about one homicide per year. One of those happened just two years ago on Super Bowl Sunday.

“One pulls out a gun, shoots the other right straight through the heart,” Furlong said. “Marijuana found at the residence.”

Meth and heroin users are often involved in burglaries and robberies. While those drugs are viewed as much more destructive, Furlong says users may harm themselves but don’t normally hurt others.

“A meth user, we call them tweekers,” Furlong said. “They just spin in circles. They don’t get anything done. He may threaten you but he just can’t get out of that circle of the effect of the drugs. Same with the heroin. But the marijuana user is a clear-headed person.”

Furlong says he doesn’t think marijuana causes people to commit violent crimes, but says it plays a role.

“We have had several that are either directly or indirectly related to marijuana,” Furlong said. “It’s not the drug that we’re talking about. It’s the culture that surrounds it.”

He says that culture is like a religion to some people.  he Sheriff’s office has even seen deadly conflicts over stolen weed.

“It’s a cherished culture,” Furlong said. “And to violate that can produce some very dramatic effects, such as we’ve seen here.”

Many people are pushing to legalize pot for recreational use, in Nevada, — including Senator Tick Segerblom.  We tried today to get his reaction to sheriff furlong’s comments but he was traveling back to Las Vegas and was not available to talk.

Court: Nevada should say what’s in prison food; Corrupt Sheriff Kenny Furlong says Carson Shitty is OK “We just feed inmates shit and poison”

The Carson City jail charges inmates about $1.09 for a “Top Ramen” soup. About 100 times the cost the CCSO pays for it. Can you say RICO?

Fuck You Kenny Furlong you feed the inmates shit. It’s well documented your jail provides meals that are well below the nutrition and calories mandated by law. On occasion you have your cronies put drugs in the food for “special inmates”… Furlong can eat his own shit and die. Furlong is a treasonous prick.

Kenny FurlongLAS VEGAS — A convicted pedophile’s complaint about Nevada prison food has the state Supreme Court ordering an accounting of what’s in unnamed sack lunches and “chef’s choice” dinners given to inmates, and whether the meals are healthful.

A strongly worded ruling by a three-judge panel declared it isn’t enough for the top state health officer, Dr. Tracey Green, to simply state that prisoners aren’t malnourished.

“Green’s report does not detail what foods are being served to inmates … much less provide any explanation of how these unidentified foods provide inmates with a nutritionally adequate diet,” the court said after reviewing Green’s 2011 report to the Board of Prison Commissioners.

 

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said his department essentially already complies with the ruling.

jail foodFurlong said the jail kitchen already monitors the nutritional content of meals served to prisoners.

He said the Supreme court ruling hasn’t, at this point, reached down to his jail.

“But if they were to ask for it, we would comply,” he said.

Furlong said the jail kitchen already handles a variety of nutritional needs for prisoners with allergies or conditions that restrict their diets such as diabetes.

In short, he said, his staff already has the necessary nutritional information to provide if asked.

top ramen

Carson City jail charges inmates about $1.09 for a “Top Ramen” soup. About 100 times the cost the CCSO pays for it.

Green, head of the Nevada Division of Behavioral and Public Health, said in a statement Thursday that since 2011, her annual inspections of prison sanitation, healthfulness, cleanliness, safety, diet and food preparation were up-do-date.

She said reports in the past “would only reflect deficient practices rather than demonstrate areas of compliance,” and said her state Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance “plans to better document how the review takes place.”

“The chief medical officer will continue to comply with law and any additional direction from the district court,” the statement said.

State prisons are required to provide inmates with a “healthful diet.”

Prisons also must account for religious and medical diets, and the age, sex and activity level of inmates.

But justices Michael Cherry, Michael Douglas and James Hardesty said in their Dec. 31 order that Green “fell well short” in the 2011 report of meeting her obligation.

“There is nothing in the report to even indicate that Green or her staff actually examined the diets,” the opinion said.

The justices added the report said a dietitian who reviewed menus for nutritional adequacy had never been to Lovelock Correctional Center, where plaintiff Robert Leslie Stockmeier is housed.

Green’s report “included no analysis of the diets of general population inmates, addressed diets at only one of Nevada’s correctional facilities, and generally lacked any indication as to how the required examination was conducted,” the justices said.

Stockmeier, 46, is serving two consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty in 1990 to sexually assaulting a 9-year-old boy.

He has been denied parole several times, and has filed at least 25 appeals and complaints with the state Supreme Court. He serves as his own lawyer.

The three-justice panel sent Stockmeier’s civil complaint back to Carson City District Court, where it had been dismissed, with instructions that the judge require Green to comply with state law and report twice a year on the prison diet’s nutritional adequacy.

A February 2010 menu that Stockmeier provided the court described every lunch offering as “sacks” and certain dinners as “chef’s choice,” with no information about nutritional value, the justices said.

As of Dec. 31, Nevada had nearly 12,800 inmates at seven prisons and 10 conservation camps, plus a restitution center and a transitional housing center.

The Department of Corrections budget for 2013-15 was $487 million, down $9 million from the previous two-year budget period.

Nevada prisons budgeted $11.7 million for food in fiscal 2014 and $11.8 million in fiscal 2015, according to the state Legislative Counsel Bureau. Not counting staff time, and if the prison population has been consistent, the state spends an average of less than $925 on food per inmate per year.

A “thrifty” adult aged 19 to 50 in the United States spent about $187 on food in November, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report. That averages a little less than $2,250 a year or 2½ times the Nevada prison food budget.

NFL football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson also is housed at Lovelock, in northern Nevada.

Now 67, Simpson is serving nine to 33 years on armed robbery and kidnapping charges in a 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel. He’ll be eligible for parole in 2017.

 

FUDGING THE NUMBERS TO LOOK GOOD: Carson Shitty’s crime rate is at its lowest point in 20 years, but Sheriff Ken Furlong says that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges coming in 2015.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny FurlongCarson City’s crime rate is at its lowest point in 20 years, but Sheriff Ken Furlong says that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges coming in 2015.

“The community crime reported was at its lowest ever in 2013 and we came into Dec. 4 percent below that.”

He said homicides, rapes, robberies are all down and the total value of property stolen in 2014 was less than $1 million, “for the first time in I don’t know how long.”

By comparison, that number was $1.7 million in 2012 and $1.2 million in 2013.

“That’s enormously significant,” he said.

He said the way to combat the rising number of burglaries is to focus on “the druggies.”

The number of robberies, he said, “I can’t talk about that without meth coming to mind.”

“Meth still has a very strong hold on Carson City,” he said.

He said the department has gotten a much better handle on the drug problem and drug-related crime in the past few years.

“We’ve got the druggies scared,” he said.

To keep them that way, Furlong said he created a new Special Enforcement Team headed by Sgt. Dan Gonzales to keep the pressure on.

That team, he said, will focus its efforts in areas where drug problems occur and on known users.

“I want to focus very heavily on it in the coming year,” he said. “When special enforcement goes down, crime goes up. When drug arrests are declining, crime is increasing.”

Furlong said residents themselves can help greatly — especially with the increasing number of daytime burglaries.

“That’s where the community can serve us best because they know what belongs in their neighborhood,” he said.

He said that means, if something doesn’t look right it probably isn’t right. Call the sheriff’s department.

Furlong said even though the numbers are better than ever, there are a couple of things he sees in the 2014 statistics that concern him — especially the number of juvenile runaways and arrests his deputies have made. Juvenile arrests, he said, are up 30 percent.

“I see so much positive but these two flags stand out,” he said.

He said his people, school district officials and juvenile officials are all trying to figure out what’s going on. He said about problems with juveniles — “that’s a significant indicator of what’s going on in our community.”

“When we’re looking at those juveniles, you’re looking at the future,” he said.

He said he plans to send more officers to area schools to help build relationships with students and adults.

Relationships and trust in the community, Furlong said are vital to his department’s success.

“We have to have a level of trust in order to function in the community,” he said.

But he said recent national events involving law enforcement “have derailed relationships across the country.”

“What we don’t want is people afraid to call us,” he said.

After drug-related crimes, Furlong said the big problem for his deputies is assaults. As of the end of November, there had been 695 assaults in 2014.

But contrary to what many think, he said it’s not the downtown bar scene.

“That’s not an accurate statement,” he said. “The bulk of them are in homes, domestic batteries.”

He said area bar operators have been making a serious effort to reduce the problems in their establishments. He pointed to the new owners of Remedy’s saying they promised to make changes “and they’ve turned it around.”

Furlong’s simple advice to area residents: “Stop hitting each other and stay away from the drugs and we can have a great 2015.”

CARSON NOW: Carson City sheriff’s candidates square off on Disagreements came at other areas of the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, which has a budget of nearly $16 MILLION DOLLARS!!!

With early voting in Nevada’s primary election beginning Saturday, Carson City residents learned more about some of the philosophies of candidates in the contested races during Wednesday night’s candidate forum hosted by the Carson City Chamber of Commerce.

The Performance Hall of the BAC was a full house for the forum, with hardly an empty seat found for the first segment where the candidates for sheriff were questioned. The audience was reduced to about half after the sheriff’s candidate portion ended.

During the forum the four candidates for sheriff squared off on topics such as staffing, drugs, and budgets. There was one agreement among candidates when it came to the city’s intense crackdown with gangs over the past four years.

Ken Furlong, up for re-election as sheriff, said four years ago the city was facing issues with a growing number of gangs in town. Gang activity has since been virtually non-existent and it was the department and the support of Douglas and Lyon County law agencies and community organizations that were responsible for the success of the crackdown.

“When was the last time you heard about gangs in Carson City? The answer is four years ago,” said Furlong.

Disagreements came at other areas of the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, which has a budget of nearly $16 million.

ccso 16 MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET

Disagreements came at other areas of the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, which has a budget of nearly $16 million.

A question was posed about how the budget has been justified given that the crime rate is going down.

Candidate Deputy Don Gibson said 12 positions were lost in the 2010 budget, and that the administration should have cut into administration more to pay for line level officers on the street instead of promoting a captain.

The money for the captain’s salary could have been split to pay for two patrol deputies, said Gibson. He said the nearly $16 million budget is a sufficient amount for the department to run on, but that he would allocate the money more wisely by hiring less administrators and more line level employees.

Candidate Sgt. Daniel Gonzales said he would not fill assistant sheriff positions if elected and would instead use the savings to pay for costs associated with the department’s aging fleet of vehicles and new technology. He said the administration side of the agency has become “top heavy” and that he would use the budget more creatively for better patrol vehicles and more officers on the street. He said he would look for creative ways to make cuts so that both middle schools would have police officers assigned to them.

The CCSO has a has a massive budget of nearly $16 MILLION DOLLARS!!! There must be transparency in this budget. These is waste in the CCSO and massive liability as Dan points out at 38:50 – CCSO needs the body cams to reduce the lawsuits and provide accountability.

Ty Robben Excellent idea by Dan at 31:24 to have the CCSO Deputies wear body audio/video cameras to help abate the rampant, wholesale corruption by some bad CCSO Deputies… They should also wear these in the jail too. Too many beatings and planted evidence and stuff like that with the CCSO. The cameras have help in notorious corrupt police departments like New Orleans and the LAPD. The CCSO has a corruption problem as Dan and the other candidates have discussed and the community is concerned about the police state, rights being violated and the cost of the lawsuits.

Ty Robben The CCSO has a has a massive budget of nearly $16 MILLION DOLLARS!!! There must be transparency in this budget. These is waste in the CCSO and massive liability as Dan points out at 38:50 – CCSO needs the body cams to reduce the lawsuits and provide accountability.

At 30:55 Daniel Gonzales talks about inmate processing fees – what is this? why would an inmate pay a fee Mr. Gonzales? Where does all the money go from the $1.09 top Ramen you sell in the commissary at a 1,000% mark up along with the other junk food inmates have to buy to keep from starving? Lorne please bring this up, the CCSO makes big money off the inmates. The CCSO also get federal money or inmates too.

Ty Robben Daniel Gonzales points out the CCSO is operating a very, very low to no standards to the services and accountability and CCSO needs better transparency at 22:55

Ty Robben Don Gibson points out CCSO Deputies have low morale under Furlong at 20:50

Ty Robben Furlong covers up crime in Carson City and does not report “gang” crime. This is a fact, and lets criminals of the hook like they did when let let Keith urr of the hook for running meth or the “gangs” along with a felon in possession of 60 loaded AR15 and AK47 machine guns. Just Google Keith Furr on Carson Now and the Appeal and read and then see my story on Nevada State Personnel WATCH by searching for Keith Furr. Furlong also does not go after drug (meth and heroin) dealers because he makes money from this according to inside sources, or shall I say confidential informants. The jail is poorly managed, inmates do not get their meds or proper medical care. There are problems with the food and water and inmates have been poisoned there. This is unacceptable. Lorne Houle knows this first hand and should use his platform to expose the corruption the others candidates will not.

Ty Robben Daniel Gonzales points out “we need to bring back the trust in the community” at 13:54 – This is a good point as trust in the CCSO is very low. Please see my website Nevada State Personnel Watch where I point out some serious concerns about the CCSO under the current regime. As many Carson City residents know i was recently released from 6 long months in Furlongs jail where he had me in the “hole” or trumped up charges against his friend Judge John Tatro. All charges against me were dismissed by the Douglas County DA after the Carson City DA Mark Krueger was kicked off the case since I have filed FBI complaints against him and I am currently in Federal Court with pending legal action against them. The list of concerns with the CCSO under Furlong are too long to add here, so please see my website and vote for anyone but Furlong.


lorne Houle Very well spoken candidates!!! When I went up on stage, I couldn’t remember what to say… So instead, I kept saying “ummm” and “you know” WAY too much… lol. Great questions although I couldn’t answer some of them since I’m not yet part of the Sheriff’s Department and not privileged to “department drama”.

Candidate Lorne Houle said he would cut his own salary by half if elected, with cost savings to go toward more energy efficient police vehicles. He also noted there could be a cost savings in the department if cuts were made at the jail, placing more people on house arrest for non-serious crimes, thus freeing up jail staff salaries.

Furlong said in the last six months the sheriff’s office removed a captain’s position and back filled it with two deputies. It had an assistant sheriff retire and that position was not filled and a forensics position went from a sworn position to a non-sworn position. The agency has already done what the candidates are saying should be done, Furlong said.

He noted the Sheriff’s Office runs efficiently around 3 percent below what is allowed in the budgets. Furlong said the fleet of vehicles the department has have been maintained, saying “sometimes it is better to hold off a year,” when purchasing vehicles, because money could be better spent elsewhere.

Candidates were asked about what changes they would make to the department.

Gonzales said he would enhance what the agency has and take it to the next level. He said he would utilize the sheriff’s reserves more and noted that if the department is running 3 percent of the budget annually, than it ought to have better equipment. He noted that recently a canister of pepper spray that was used in the jail and had a stamp on it that said use before 2003. “We should be providing employees equipment to serve you better.” He also advocated the need for technology upgrades including body cameras.

Furlong noted changes are already being made at the department for next year. Management has been rolled back, due to retirements and attrition, countering a criticism earlier that administration had become top heavy. He said that half of the cuts from 2010 were not from the front line and that the supervisors do work as patrol officers as well. He noted the agency is running as lean as it can and will continue to run lean.

Gibson said he would like to see staffing go to 7 deputies on the street instead of the minimum level of 4 deputies. He said he would pay for the additional officers on the street by cutting adminstration-level officer positions. Gibson also said he would eliminate a numbers based management philosophy where there is a mindset that officers need to be writing more tickets, saying “it turns the very same people who we serve and protect into the victims of our production.”

Houle said he would strengthen the relationship in the community between the agency and the officers on the street. He said there are two groups of people, those who are friends of the department and those in the community who are nervous and skeptical of the agency. He said he represents those who are skeptical, and thinks officers give too many tickets and are policing the wrong people, including low level drug users. He said that drug users are not criminals but are treated like them, saying there needs to be more services for drug addicts instead of throwing them in jail.

Though there wasn’t a direct question posed, there was disagreement on the way the Sheriff’s Office special enforcement team is being run. Gibson, a former SET officer, noted the agency spends too much going after the low-level drug users instead of focusing on the bigger problem, the drug dealers themselves.

He noted that the department ought to be targeting drug suppliers because of the assets they have that can be seized. By taking the assets such as homes and vehicles, less taxpayer money would be spent on drug enforcement because the assets from drug dealers would pay for the SET team.

Gonzales said he would add another officer to the SET team. He said the SET philosophy is that the low-level drug offenders are typically the ones breaking into homes and businesses to pay for their drug habits and therefore it is essential to work to get them off the streets. He said the Tri-Net task force, which handles the high level drug sellers, needs to be held accountable for going after those with large sums of drug money.

“We know the drugs are coming in, let the people who focus on that do their job,” he said.

The candidates were asked about mental health and law enforcement issues. Furlong noted the city as well as the state and nation are dealing with issues of mental illness and policing and actively working on crisis intervention, which is being done in Carson City with mental health now incorporated into response plans. “We are working collaboratively with every agency we possibly can,” said Furlong.

Gonzales noted that he is a trained Crisis Intervention Instructor and he teaches staff. He said he would work to take the CIT program to the next level with mobile health units to better address suicide calls. Houle noted that drug addiction and mental illness are illnesses and that they should not be treated like criminals. He said mental health subjects should not be kept in jail but put in group homes where they can be given the help they need.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong panned, praised

ImageSheriff Ken Furlong at a Wednesday night candidates’ forum faced criticism from opponents about staffing in the community, but was given credit for combating gangs.

The incumbent sheriff faces three opponents in the June 10 primary election, after which two of the four running are likely to advance to November’s general election. The opponents are Don Gibson and Daniel Gonzales, both of the sheriff’s department, and Lorne Houle, who cited experience as a Marine provost marshal. Gibson and Gonzales took Furlong to task over staffing.

“Morale is dismal at best in the sheriff’s office,” said Gibson, calling for re-allocation of resources to provide more deputies in the field. He said minimum line staffing per shift should be seven rather than five. Gonzales, meanwhile, put it in terms of services to citizens. “We should have more field services to provide for you,” he said. Gonzales also called for new technology and newer patrol cars.

Carson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

Taxpayer money spent on RETALATION

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.

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.

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.

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 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:

https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/ty-robben-aka-top-ramen-free-at-last-all-charges-dropped/

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.

Kenny Furlong 2014 candidate for Sheriff

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?

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.”IMG_20140426_124619

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.

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.

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.

TY Robben AKA “Top Ramen” Free At Last – All charges dropped

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.

Robben said Judge Tatro and Assistant DA Mark “Freddie” Krueger must resign and criminal charges must be filed against Judge Tatro  for filing a false report against me!Judge Tatro Corrupt

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.

Corrupt Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong will seek a 4th re-election in 2014

Kenny FurlongCarson City Sheriff Ken Furlong will seek re-election in 2014.

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

DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS GUY. We are not sure who is running against him, probably Bob White and Bob Guimont. There is rift and striff in the Carson City Sheriff Sheriff Department and 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. Continue reading

Carson City Man Ivan Botello Arrested for ‘under age’ Revenge Porn

Ivan Botello

By Audra Schroeder on September 09, 2013 Email

REVENGE PORNOn Friday, a 28-year-old Carson City, Nev. resident named Ivan Botello was arrested for “arranging to have revenge porn posted online.” However, the act of revenge porn was not his crime; it was that the woman in the photos he was arranging to revenge-post, who is his ex-girlfriend, was 16 at the time they were taken. According to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong:

She consented to the pictures at the time he took them, but after their relationship had gone bad, he continued to harass her.

Nevada does not currently have laws in place that criminalize revenge porn. However, California has made efforts to crack down on revenge porn by attempting to pass a bill that would make the dissemination of nude photos “with the intent to cause serious emotional distress” illegal.

GET REVENGE

Revenge porn is now an extension of cyberbullying, and more people are voicing their concerns. Florida activist Holly Jacobs started End Revenge Porn to bring attention to this troubling trend—showcased on the now-shuttered revenge porn sites Is Anyone Up? and Is Anybody Down?—and offer victims a support group.

That Botello was arrested and Carson City police acknowledged revenge porn exists is a step forward, but Nevada, and other states, still have a ways to go in making it a crime. Many people still think of it as harmless “entertainment.”

Botello is apparently also on probation for another case: Having sex with a girl younger than 16.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong has no problem with medical pot

Carson City Sheriff kenny furlongCarson City Sheriff Ken Furlong has no problem with cancer patients and others being prescribed medical marijuana as part of their treatment, he said Tuesday. He added that his understanding of a new Nevada law is that even if he and other Carson City officials disagree with it, they don’t have the option of denying all licenses for a dispensary. The law approved by the 2013 Legislature sets out how many dispensaries are permitted in each county.

Sheriff Kenneth T. Furlong was born and raised in Carson City. He graduated from Carson High in 1975, then enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1978. While in the Air Force, Kenny earned an Associates Degree in Police Science, another Associates Degree in Criminal Justice and a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice Administration.

No problem with medical pot – Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong

He retired from the USAF, Office of Special Investigations, in 1998. Before his election to the Office of Sheriff, Kenny was employed as a Detective Sergeant with the Department of Public Safety, Major Crimes Unit. This appointment followed his transfer from the Nevada State Parole and Probation Department, where he served as a Court Services Officer and Field Supervision Officer.nevada pot

Since taking office, Sheriff Furlong has introduced several new programs and has reestablished a few from the past. The most visible programs include: Volunteers in Policing, Chaplain’s Program, Community Resource Officers, and a revitalized Reserve Program. He is committed to enhancing law enforcement in Carson City through educational opportunities, community involvement and youth/senior citizen contacts.

Kenny spends his free time with wife, Phyllis, their two grown children and two grandchildren. He also enjoys cars, motorcycles, sports and computers.

Sheriff Furlong is the 26th Sheriff to serve Ormsby County/Carson City since 1861.

Nevada Medical Marijuana Dispensary Law Signed By Brian Sandoval

nevadamarijuana1CARSON CITY, Nev. — After 13 years of waiting, medical marijuana patients in Nevada will soon have a legal way to obtain the drug without growing it themselves.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed SB374 into law in June 2013. The measure establishes the framework to make pot available to medical marijuana card holders, and imposes fees and requirements for growers, processors and dispensaries. It also contains provisions to continue to allow home-growing until 2016.

The tax revenue created will first fund the regulation of the dispensaries. Any remaining revenue will be funneled to education.

According to the National Conference on State Legislatures, Nevada is the 14th state to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries, and one of 19 states to allow medicinal pot, along with the District of Columbia. norml

WTF NevadaAttention – Were you ever incarcerated in the Carson City jail? Was your food poisoned? Mine was and I posed a story that has gone viral with other people also claiming their food and water was tainted.  This happened to people in the ‘Hole’ and solitary confinement. This story is one of the biggest Facebook stories we’ve written with 420 Facebook like and referrals.

ATTENTION Carson City, Douglas, Reno, Henderson, Nevada Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) did not have legal jurisdiction over Pre-Trial Defendants prior to July 2013 If you were under DAS supervision, you may have legal recourse to sue in federal court under Title 42, Section 1983 and have any related criminal charges, pleas and convictions vacated.

Nevada Department of Alternative Sentencing SB101 hearing. Carson City DAS did not have legal jurisdiction of pre trial defendants.

People have constitutional right we can’t stomp on either the US Constitution or the Nevada Constitution and I oppose the end result what this bill is going to allow them to do which they’re already doing without authority.

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

They can search their home they can search there be a call they have not been convicted they are charged with the crime whether it be a misdemeanor a gross misdemeanor or felony they still have their constitutional rights so my concern is that we’re taking these rights away from people.

Carson City Jail lacks a required Law Library violating inmates 14th Amendment to Due Process

law booksThe Carson City Jail lacks a required Law Library and resembles a Russian Gulag.

All inmates are incarcerated with no access to a law library in the Carson City Jail (Detention Center) pursuant to NRS 211.140(b) or lawyer from the Carson City jail thus violating Due Process.

The American Correctional Association (ACA) Adult Local Detention Standards as well ACA’s Core Jail standards as a basis for your policies. Here are the two relevant standards: ACA standard 4-ALDF-6A-03 (Accreditation standards)[1]

“Inmates have access to a law library if there is not adequate free legal assistance to assist them with criminal, civil, and administrative legal matters. Inmates have access to legal materials to facilitate the preparation of documents” lady justice

ACA Standard 1-Core-6A-03  (Core Jail Standards)

“Inmates have access to legal materials”

You will want to consider what the courts have said. Take a look at the following:

Jails and the Constitution:  An Overview” NIC publication authored by William Collins available as a download from:     http://static.nicic.gov/Library/022570.pdf

Text  from page 68:

“Over the years the Supreme Court decided several access to the courts cases involving inmates. The most important came in 1977, when the Court said that prison administrators have the affirmative duty to provide inmates with assistance or resources to allow them to meaningfully exercise their right of access to the courts, Bounds v. Smith.  Assistance could take the form of persons trained in the law (such as lawyers, paralegals, or law students), adequate law libraries, or some combination of these.

A 1996 Supreme Court decision dealing with access to the courts reaffirmed the core principle in Bounds, i.e., that the institution has an affirmative duty to provide some form of assistance (libraries or persons trained in the law) sufficient to give inmates the capability of filing non-frivolous lawsuits challenging their sentence or the conditions of their confinement, Lewis v. Casey.”

Kenny Furlong“The principle from Bounds (and now Lewis) has been extended to jails, although application of the principle may be slightly different in the jail context depending in part on how long inmates remain in the jail. The longer an inmate remains in a jail, the more the right of “access to the courts” places the same demands on the jail as it does on the prison”

The fundamental constitutional right of access to the courts requires prison authorities to assist inmates in the preparation and filing of meaningful legal papers by providing prisoners with adequate law libraries or adequate assistance from persons trained in the law.  This quote is taken from Bounds v. Smith (430 U.S. 817), the 1977 landmark Supreme Court decision, which led to the establishment of law libraries in most major U.S. prisons.

The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees state inmates the right to “adequate, effective, and meaningful” access to the courts. Bounds v. Smith, 430 U.S. 817, 822, 97 S.Ct. 1491, 1495, 52 L.Ed.2d 72 (1977); Green v. Johnson, 977 F.2d 1383, 1389 (10th Cir.1992). We impose “affirmative obligations” on the states to assure all inmates access to the courts and assistance in the preparation and filing of legal papers. Ramos v. Lamm, 639 F.2d 559, 583 (10th Cir.1980), cert. denied, 450 U.S. 1041, 101 S.Ct. 1759, 68 L.Ed.2d 239 (1981).

The Supreme Court instructs that states may satisfy this duty “by providing prisoners with adequate law libraries or adequate assistance from persons trained in the law.” Bounds, 430 U.S. at 828, 97 S.Ct. at 1498. Although this constitutional obligation does not require states to afford inmates unlimited access to a library, Twyman v. Crisp, 584 F.2d 352, 358 (10th Cir.1978), and there exists no rigid or static formula to assess whether a prison library’s resources pass constitutional muster, Johnson v. Moore, 948 F.2d 517, 521 (9th Cir.1991), states must provide inmates with “a reasonably adequate opportunity” to present their legal claims.

Carson City Sheriff Sergeant Kenneth G. Steel exposes self to female deputy

carson city sheriff

Carson city sheriff

We have been telling you the Carson City, Nevada Sheriff Department is a train wreck and an example of complete and total police misconduct, incompetence, and now sexual perverts.

The Sergeant’s real name is Kenneth G. Steel, KRNV incorrectly used the name Kent Steel.

Well, we knew about the sexual perverts and homosexual activity in the  Carson City, Nevada Sheriff Department under Kenny Furlong’s watch. This Sheriff is the perfect example of a total shithead sucking off the Taxpayers tit. Kick this peace of shit out of office Carson City and get a clue. This is only the tip of the iceberg for the corrupt Carson City Sheriff and we’ve already brought you examples of various scandals and more are coming as soon as we an devote time to this cesspool of corruption. I must admit, it’s disturbing an ahrd to wriet about this shit. Many people think we make this crap up, but it is only validate by the MSM and in this case Reno’s KRNV news 4.

Carson City, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) —  A Carson City Sheriff’s Sergeant recently resigned after allegations that he allegedly exposed himself to a female deputy between January and February of 2013.

According to Sheriff Ken Furlong, Sergeant Kenneth G. Steele exposed himself and touched another female deputy.

Douglas County was called in to investigate the allegations. As the case stands right now there are no criminal charges against Steele and according to Sheriff Furlong, Steele actually admitted to the allegations.

News 4 requests for the investigation report have been denied and we’re waiting to hear back from the Douglas County District Attorney.

Sheriff Furlong says that the incident happened between January and February of 2013. Steele just resigned in the last three weeks, he had been with the force for 18 years.  

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong

The burning question in this case, is why does Steele get to resign without any other action being taken? If the allegations are true, why doesn’t he face the same charges that any other citizen would face in a situation like this?

News 4 will continue to look into this case and bring you the latest as it becomes available.

Carson City probation officer charged with using position to get women to undress :: The Republic

Last Updated: March 19, 2011

CARSON CITY, Nev. — A probation officer has been charged with using his position and the threat of jail to get women to undress and to inappropriately touch them.

The 22-count complaint was filed Friday against Aaron Lewis by the Nevada attorney general’s office, the Nevada Appeal of Carson City and Reno Gazette-Journal reported. The 35-year-old is accused of getting women to undress and touching their private parts either under the threat of arrest or a promise to keep their violations to himself.

The Carson City Justice Court complaint charged him with misconduct of a public officer, coercion using physical force, open or gross lewdness, and oppression under color of office.

The claims stem from six alleged victims — all but one under his supervision — during incidents that occurred at their homes, the courthouse or his official vehicle.

Lewis told The Associated Press on Saturday that he couldn’t comment on the charges. He referred queries to his attorney, Larry Digesti, who did not immediately return a call.

Most of the young women were being supervised for drug convictions, and had told family about incidents that allegedly occurred between May and September, according to an arrest affidavit.

Lewis began working for the Carson City Department of Alternative Sentencing in April 2009. He previously worked for the Nevada Department of Corrections and as a Lyon County sheriff’s deputy.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny furlong needs to be asked the real questions.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny furlong needs to be asked the real questions. This guy and his deputies are corrupt 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 the city 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

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

kenny furlong

What’s the Sheriff’s role in alleged distribution with meth, heroin and other drugs and drug cartels in Carson City?

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 fact Susan 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 that Susan 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?

Kenny Furlong and Neil Rombardo

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?

These problems seem outlandish, but it has happened to  others. See this story:

The California press refuses to cover this true story of the torture of a senior citizen milk man

The Los Angeles Times is so corrupt and whored out to its corporate interests that it won’t even cover this story! There is torture and abuse of farmers happening right in Los Angeles, and the LA Times absolutely refuses to cover the story! How’s that for pathetic journalism? (If the LA Times actually starts to cover this story, I will retract this paragraph. But as of this writing, the LA Times has done nothing to cover this huge story of government abuse of innocent citizens.)

In fact, to date no newspaper in California has covered this story of torture and abuse of the California milk man. There is complete silence on it. A total cover-up. The lamestream media wants you to believe this never happens in California.

But these pictures don’t lie. The recorded testimony of James Stewart is factual and truthful.

Watch the video, hear it yourself and compare to what happened to Ty Robben in the Carson City jail including poisoned food, solitary confinement, red bracelet indicating a felon or danger, inhuman jail conditions and lack of jail personnel ethics, violations of law and human rights, etc  :

Tahoe Tribune News covers the story – Charges filed in police protest case against Justin Brothers Bail Bonds ‘Bounty Hunter’ Doug Lewis

Tahoe Tribune story on Ty Robben

Tahoe Tribune

The El Dorado District Attorney’s Office has filed charges against a bail bondsman for an October incident that spurred a protest against the South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

On Thursday, Assistant District Attorney Hans Uthe filed five misdemeanor counts against bail bondsmen Douglas Lewis for an October incident in the Sierra Tract neighborhood in which bounty hunters allegedly entered the home of Todd “Ty” Robben in an attempt to bring him into custody on a Nevada warrant.

The counts against Lewis include unlawful arrest, aggravated trespass, vandalism, battery and damaging a vehicle, according to court documents.

A man who answered the phone at Justin Brothers Bail Bonds Tuesday morning declined to say how Lewis could be reached. The man said there is no comment on the charges before hanging up.

During the October incident, bondsmen from the company entered the Pinter Avenue home of Robben and shocked him with a Taser in an attempt to take him into custody, according to Robben’s account of the incident.

Robben contends the bondsmen did not have a legal warrant for the search.

The pace of the investigation into the incident led Robben to organize a protest against the police department along Al Tahoe Boulevard in January

Guy has put together about 10 videos explaining his perspective on the rampant, wholesale corruption in Nevada.  Topics include Judicial Corruption, Government Corruption to include AG Masto, Gov. Sandoval and much more.  Guy goes wide and deep into the issues and calls out these corrupt and criminal politicians.

Guy Felton’s youtube “Nevadagate” series on Nevada Corruption
Nevada government is permeated with a culture of corruption. Members of the state legislature meet for only 4 months every other year. This does not permit anything close to proper administration of the public affairs of Nevada’s 2.7-million residents.  Members of the upcoming 2013 legislative session are asked to answer tough-but-fair questions which might force changes for the better.

Wanted for TREASON in Nevada

Nevada retaliates against Nevada ANTI-Corruption Movement… The Movement will continue…

A Nevada Advocate and Activist against Nevada Government/Judicial Corruption was arrested with no Due Process in Carson City Nevada. Nevada has become a “Police State” in the New United States using new US law Senate Bill S.1867 where Americans can be detained without due process. In Nevada anyone can be detained without cause and held in the Carson City Jail for months until a trial is set by the judge, who can keep people detained for excessive amounts of time before their trial… And in Nevada, you will not get a jury trial for a misdemeanor.

We are becoming more like Russia – See Russia Expands Treason Law
AP News – November 2012: MOSCOW — Adding to fears that the Kremlin aims to stifle dissent, Russians now live under a new law expanding the definition of treason so broadly that critics say it could be used to call anyone who bucks the government a traitor. The law took effect Wednesday, just two days after President Vladimir Putin told his human-rights advisory council that he was ready to review it. His spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies Wednesday that Putin would be willing to review the treason law if its implementation reveals “some problems or aspects restricting rights and freedoms.”

Wanted for TREASON in Nevada are:

1. Governor Brian Sandoval

2. Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto

3. Carson City Judge John Tatro

4. Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong

5. Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo

“One may recall the pledge of allegiance, which states that we are supposedly “One Nation under GOD.”  Many of the current day government leaders  pledge allegiance to the flag, but have betrayed their pledge.  They have chosen to create “One nation under Gold” instead.  The love of money and power has corrupted many in politics, and when GOD and HIS truth become inconvenient, those in government  leadership will quickly violate their pledge.  This wicked and criminal act can be described in one word, TREASON.” As quoted by R. J. Collins

Definition of Treason in the state of Nevada.
In Nevada the definition of Treason is found in chapter 196 of the Nevada revised statutes. An act of Treason can be committed in three ways. The three ways include:

(a) Levying War against the people of the state;
(b) Adhering to its enemies; or
(c) Giving them aid and comfort

Specifically we will first take a look at the definition of “Levying war against the people of that state”. The definition states, “When persons arise in insurrection with intent to prevent, in general, by force and intimidation, the execution of a statute of this state, or to force its repeal, they shall be guilty of levying war.”

One simple way to prove that State Officials, State Judges, DA’s and Carson City and its Sheriff department are often times levying war against the people of that state is by comparing its continual promotion of sin to its responsibility under the law to promote Good Morals and Public Decency.

Inmates complain of strange tasting water and food and body odor consistent with  methadone

In 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a caution about methadone, titled “Methadone Use for Pain Control May Result in Death.” The FDA also revised the drug’s package insert. The change deleted previous information about the usual adult dosage. The Charleston Gazette reported, “The old language about the ‘usual adult dose’ was potentially deadly, according to pain specialists.”

There was a concern they were putting sodium fluoride  (rat poison) in the food/water, but research is pointing to methadone.

Fluoride poisoning

The lethal dose for a 70 kg (154 lb) human is estimated at 5–10 g.[7] Sodium fluoride is classed as toxic by both inhalation (of dusts or aerosols) and ingestion.[13] In high enough doses, it has been shown to affect the heart and circulatory system.

FACTS ABOUT FLUORIDE

– Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.

– Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).

– USAF Major George R. Jordan testified before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s that in his post as U.S.-Soviet liaison officer, the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.”

– The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany’s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride’s supposed effect on children’s teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: “The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben” by Joseph Borkin.)

More on this soon. We’re demanding an investigation into this poising of innocent Carson City jail inmates.

Nevada Appeal August 17, 2012 Ty makes bail

no arrest request by Martinovich

no arrest request by Martinovich

Martinovich said she did not want to press charges against Robben on her complaint, yet Robben was originally charged with harassment. Knowing ‘harassment’ would not stick, that charge was dropped and DA Neil Rombardo added assault and breach of peace.  These will not sick as a matter of law. However, in Carson City, Nevada where Robben is public enemy #1 to the corrupt justice system – the rule of law will not matter because this is all about revenge and retaliation.   The gang in black robes want Robben in jail to shut him down for exposing their corruption and protesting with CRIME SCENE tape! Judges do not like seeing their corruption broadcast on the Internet and protest banners. Once inside their Judicial ‘system’ they have unchecked power and authority to abuse their power and direct their hostility at an individual who clearly is standing up to the corrupt system.

How does Robben, who has publicly stated the entire Carson City court is corrupt, get justice when he is

directly in their ‘cross hairs’ with no jury trial? The judges will not comply with the law and disqualify themselves after being formally moved to do so. They won’t move the hearing or bring in another hopefully honest judge from somewhere else. 

See the plan?

NOTE: Susan Martinovich was served the week prior with a subpoena for the same hearing by service to her secretary who accepted it.  Then Susan Martinovich complained that she was not served ‘Personally’ per NRCP rule 4 and had the court quash that subpoena. The court reissued the subpoena on August 06, 2012 at about 1:30pm in Reno for the August 07, 2012 9:00am hearing. Jim Richardson had no time to hire a process server and Robben was available by the time he arrived in Carson City around 3:30pm.  With little time to spare the papers were served to 2 of the 4 people. Since Martinovich demanded ‘personal service’  and Robben was just complying with her  ‘personal service’ hand-hand demands. Robben never attempted to touch or physicality contact  nor did he touch or make contact Ms. Martinovich. The plan was hand over the papers to her person so she would accept per her NRCP demand for personal service. 

False Sheriff report:

Martinovich knew Robben was there to serve the papers she was avoiding and not there to harm, harass or assault her.  When Martinovich filed the false Sheriff report knowing this to be the case, she made a false police report. Martinovich assaulted Robben with her car (a deadly weapon in Nevada) and hit Robben (battery) then left the scene to file a false charge against Robben.  Really, what was Robben going to do with 1 subpoena which is 1 piece of paper? hit/slap her with a lawsuit? The subpena was for a state personnel hearing. By the way, the State should change this policy and have the hearing officers send personnel related subpenas to the people or the department AG for future service related to personnel matters.  This whole thing should be a lesson the the State, and the State should fix this.

The legal definition of “false reporting of a crime” in Nevada, prohibits knowingly making a false report to law enforcement that a crime has occurred, which causes law enforcement to conduct a criminal or internal investigation.

Note that the report can be made by any means such as orally, through writing or electronic communication. Also note that NRS 207.280 applies when the defendant allegedly makes the report to any of the following members of law enforcement:

    • police officer
    • sheriff
    • district attorney or deputy district attorney
    • sheriff or deputy sheriff

any member of the Nevada Department of Public Safety

NRS 207.280  False reporting of crimes unlawful.  Every person who deliberately reports to any police officer, sheriff, district attorney, deputy sheriff, deputy district attorney or member of the Department of Public Safety that a felony or misdemeanor has been committed, which causes a law enforcement agency to conduct a criminal or internal investigation, knowing such report to be false, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

A common scenario where this law comes into play in Nevada is when an angry spouse lies to the police about the other spouse committing the Nevada crime of battery domestic violence. If the police investigate and determine that the reporting spouse wasn’t being truthful, prosecutors may press charges for the false reporting of a crime.

Trumped up charges of ‘ASSAULT’

Here you go, no case against Robben.  Robben was there to serve court papers – NOT to “commit a violent injury on the person of another of another”.  “Mere menace is not enough. There must be an effort to carry the intention into execution.” 

Under NRS 200.471, an “assault” is “an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another.” As we said in Wilkerson v. State, 87 Nev. 123, 482 P.2d 314 (1971): “Mere menace is not enough. There must be an effort to carry the intention into execution.” Id. at 126, 482 P.2d at 316.

NRS 193.330 defines “attempt” as “[a]n act done with the intent to commit a crime, and tending but failing to accomplish it.” See also Crawford v. State, 107 Nev. 345, 351, 811 P.2d 67, 71 (1991) (stating the elements of attempt are: “(1) the intent to commit the crime; (2) performance of some act toward the commission of the crime; and (3) the failure to consummate its commission”). Therefore, the State had the burden to prove that Powell had the specific intent to commit a violent injury on each of Richardson, Cole, and Shepard.

Trumped up charges of ‘Breach of peace’

Robben said to Martinovich “process server, court papers” and “stop you ran over my foot”. This is not disturbing the peace. Robben did not use profanity or yell anything else to Martinovich to provoke a breach of peace. Nor did Robben challenge Martinovich to a fight, threaten her or engage in the other mumbo-jumbo i.e.  loud or unusual noises, or by tumultuous and offensive conduct threatening, traducing, quarreling, challenging to fight, or fighting.

Robben there to serve papers

Robben there to serve papers

The main focus of the charge is Robben “yelled” and ran after Martinovich’s car “banging on the window” by a stranger.

 NRS 203.010  Breach of peace.  Every person who shall maliciously and willfully disturb the peace or quiet of any neighborhood or person or family by loud or unusual noises, or by tumultuous and offensive conduct, threatening, traducing, quarreling, challenging to fight, or fighting, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

In every criminal case, the D.A. has the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime. This is a very high standard, and it may be difficult for the D.A. to produce sufficient evidence that demonstrates the defendant knew the crime report was false. As long as the D.A. fails to meet this burden of proof, the defendant is not criminally liable.

In Nevada, this case will likely get a bench trial because Nevada is corrupt and ignores the U.S. Constitution  and it’s own laws under NRS 175.011(2)!

     NRS 175.011  Trial by jury.

1.  In a district court, cases required to be tried by jury must be so tried unless the defendant waives a jury trial in writing with the approval of the court and the consent of the State. A defendant who pleads not guilty to the charge of a capital offense must be tried by jury.

   2.  In a Justice Court, a case must be tried by jury only if the defendant so demands in writing not less than 30 days before trial. Except as otherwise provided in NRS 4.390 and 4.400, if a case is tried by jury, a reporter must be present who is a certified court reporter and shall report the trial.

(Added to NRS by 1967, 1424; A 1983, 749; 1987, 614; 1993, 1412)

Although Article III of the U.S. Constitution guarantees everyone charged with a crime the right to a trial by jury, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that jury trial rights extend only to those facing more than six months in jail.

From Lawyer Mike Pariente;

http://www.parientelaw.com/its-time-for-nevada-to-give-defendants-a-jury-trial-for-misdemeanor-domestic-violence-charges/

When I began my career as a lawyer in Texas in 1998 before eventually moving to Nevada, I was amazed by how in Texas a defendant had the right to a six-person jury trial even for a minor traffic ticket.  In Texas, if you are charged with any misdemeanor including traffic citations (i.e., running a red light, speeding), you have the right to a six-person jury of your peers.  Now contrast that with Nevada.  Here in Nevada, you have no right to a jury trial for any kind of misdemeanor – period.  That’s right.

Here’s a brief history for you.  Nevada made U.S. Supreme Court history when, in the case of Blanton v. City of N. Las Vegas, 489 U.S. 538 (1989), it held that a defendant charged with misdemeanor Driving Under the Influence (DUI) was not entitled to a jury trial because the offense is “petty”.  A “petty” misdemeanor is one in which the maximum term of imprisonment is 6 months.  So, if you’re charged with a misdemeanor in Nevada and the most you can get under the law is 6 months in jail, that’s considered “petty” and you don’t get the right to have a jury decide your case.  Only a judge can decide your case.  Petty?  Really?  When people think of “petty”, they think of speeding tickets.  How can having your freedom taken from you for 6 months – that’s 180 days, that’s half a year – how is that “petty”?  The fact that a judge, not a jury, can hear a “petty” misdemeanor trial and decide to put you in jail and take you away from your family and job for six months is anything but “petty”.  I’m sure if a judge were sitting in jail for being convicted of a “petty” misdemeanor, he or she would not think it’s so “petty”.

Nevada is one of the only states in the country to deny a defendant a jury trial for a “petty” misdemeanor.

Oddly enough, the Nevada Legislature passed NRS 175.011(2) which allows a defendant to demand a jury trial for a “petty” misdemeanor with 30 days notice before the date of the trial.  Huh?  So how can it be that there is a law on the books that gives you a right to a jury trial for “petty” misdemeanors but you don’t actually have that right?  Come again?  Here’s why.  After NRS 175.011(2) was passed which clearly spelled out that a defendant had the right to a jury trial on “petty” misdemeanors, the Nevada Supreme Court decided that the Legislature didn’t mean what it said.  In Smith v. State, 99 Nev. 806, 672 P.2d 631, (1983), the Nevada Supreme Court acknowledged that the Legislature passed NRS 175.011(2) but said that it really didn’t matter because the Legislature probably didn’t mean to create a “statutory right”.  WTF????  Wait a minute.  The Legislature passed this statute.  The Governor of Nevada signed off on it.  It became law.  But then in 1983, the Nevada Supreme Court decided in effect, “Nah, that’s not what they meant.”  I’m paraphrasing, of course, but talk about judicial activism!  If I, as a criminal defense lawyer, were to argue that a statute passed by the Legislature didn’t mean what it said, I’d probably be accused of violating rules of professional conduct by making a frivolous argument to the court.  Imagine if I were to argue that the mandatory minimum laws on the Nevada books for certain crimes such as drug trafficking which clearly don’t allow a judge to sentence a defendant to probation were laws that the Legislature really didn’t mean what they said when the laws were passed. I’d be laughed out of court for making the same kind of argument.  But that’s what the Nevada Supreme Court decided.

Here’s where I’m coming from.  Let’s go back to Blanton which said that DUI is a “petty” misdemeanor.  The lawyers for Blanton argued that DUI is not a “petty” misdemeanor because a defendant faced, among other punishments, suspension of his or her driver’s license.  Unfortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court disagreed.  But here’s where I argue that Blanton shouldn’t control when a defendant is facing charges for domestic violence.  If a Permanent Resident Alien is facing a domestic violence misdemeanor charge, he or she will get deported if convicted of domestic violence.  As we’ve seen in Padilla v. Kentucky, the U.S. Supreme Court said that immigration consequences are no longer collateral rights and are substantive rights.  So my argument is deportation for a domestic violence conviction is anything but “petty”.  Deportation means a person will be sent back to their foreign land even if he or she has their family in the U.S.  Blanton defines “penalty” as follows:  “In using the word ‘penalty,’ we do not refer solely to the maximum prison term authorized for a particular offense. See United States v. Jenkins, 780 F. 2d 472, 474, and n. 3 (CA4), cert. denied, 476 U.S. 1161 (1986).  Blanton v. N. Las Vegas, 489 U.S. 538, 542 (U.S. 1989).”  So, since deportation is a penalty, which is more severe than a 6 month sentence since it involves permanently being separated from your family in the U.S., a legal permanent resident alien should be allowed a jury trial for a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.  And if a legal permanent resident alien is allowed a jury trial for a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, then so should a U.S. Citizen be given the same right under the Equal Protection Clause since it would be unfair to give a non-citizen a jury trial right while depriving a U.S. Citizen of the same right to a six-person jury to hear his or her case in a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence.  I’ll keep you posted on my efforts to change the law.  I’m preparing a writ of mandamus, which in Latin means a petition to order the lower court to do something for which it has no discretion.  I’m going to be filing this with the Eighth Judicial District Court in January arguing that it should direct the justice court or municipal court to order a defendant to have a right to a jury trial.

UPDATE: I’ve filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus or alternatively writ of mandamus with the Nevada Supreme Court.  They haven’t ruled on it yet.  If they grant my motion, then all Nevadans accused of domestic violence will get a jury trial.  If they do not, then I will petition the U.S. Supreme Court and ask them to give Nevadans accused of domestic violence a jury trial.  More to come!  As of today, January 8, 2012, the Nevada Supreme Court has not ruled on my writs.  Given their backlog, it will be several months but I will keep you posted once I hear something.

Process Servers and Assault

Editor’s note: This article was researched and written by ServeNow staff and may not include the most up-to-date information on the status of specific legislation in individual states.

Process Server AssaultWork can be worrisome for many reasons, but process servers have to consider their physical well being on top of their jobs every time they set out to serve papers. Assault on process servers is a common occurrence and there are laws that protect them, however, sometimes these laws are not enough. In our recent poll on the biggest challenges in the process serving industry, some voters listed increased assault as the biggest industry threat. But even though it did not receive the most votes it’s still an important issue to pay attention to, and certain states are beginning to take things a step further and are make assault on a process server a felony.

What is assault?

Assault occurs when someone is intentionally placed under the threat of bodily injury by another person. If the offender actually injures the person they are threatening, they have committed assault and battery.

How does assault affect process servers?

When a process server sets out to do their job, they are placing themselves in an emotionally charged situation. The person being served may be in an unstable mental and emotional state. When someone is presented with papers it could be a breaking point, and they may become violent. Process servers are representatives of the court and many feel that because of this there should be stricter consequences for individuals who attempt to stop them from completing their work or hurt them while they are doing their jobs.

Instances of process server assault

Stories about process servers being assaulted while on the job have become more prevalent in the news. Reports of process servers being punched, hit with baseball bats and even shot are not as uncommon as they used to be.

Recently, an Auburn process server was assaulted when trying to serve eviction papers. The offender shot Kathy Stevenson with an airsoft gun, threw rocks at her, broke her car window and smeared mud in her face. The perpetrator was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism and is currently out on a $25,000 bond.

Earlier this year the Mayor of Mendenhall was charged with assault on a process server. Mayor Womack claims that he was unaware that the person knocking on his door was a Mississippi process server and feared for the safety of his family. The process server claims the Mayor swore at him and assaulted him, even after he made his purpose clear. Mayor Mendenhall was found guilty of simple assault, a misdemeanor, and forced to pay a $485 fine.

Also this year, an Illinois state lawyer, Allen W. James plead guilty to a misdemeanor aggravated assault for pulling a gun on a process server in the parking lot of a courthouse in 2008. James claims he was defending himself, however, the court found that he had been evading service for a personal lawsuit the day before and most likely pulled out his gun in an attempt to further avoid service. James was initially charged with two felonies but was only found guilty of a misdemeanor. He was forced to pay a $1,500 fine and was suspended from work for 60 days. James was not reelected to his position and no longer works for the state of Illinois.

With assault on the rise and stories like this continually hitting the news, it is apparent that process servers need protection now more then ever.

What laws are currently in place protecting process servers?

Many states have laws protecting process servers from assault, but there has been a recent push to make assault on a process server a felony, not just a misdemeanor. In late 2011, Illinois became the first state to pass legislation making assault on an Illinois process server a felony charge. Senator Mike Jacobs of Illinois stated that “We have increased the assault penalties over the years for those people who work on behalf of the State Government and law enforcement, and this legislation will extend these protections for those who work on behalf of the courts.”

“We brought that legislation to the Illinois State Congress because we know that process servers are getting attacked out there and it’s not being reported,” Illinois Association of Professional Process Servers (IAPS) Treasurer Keith McMaster explained, “hopefully this is an event that we can take to all the associations and NAPPS can, in the future, take this legislation to the states that don’t have an association.” Since the passing of the Illinois law, California has enacted a similar law and Washington has proposed one as well. New York process servers have presented bills to the legislature making assault on a process server a class D felony. Larry Yellon, president of the New York State Professional Process Servers Association, is hopeful that the bills will be signed into law and assist other states in enacting similar laws. Process servers are applauding these states and hoping to see similar legislation passed across the country. Other associations have added pushing for assault legislation to their goals.

Why is it important for process servers to be protected from assault?

Process servers perform a task that is integral to the court’s functionality. Senator Jacobs hopes that the new Illinois law “might be the deterrent necessary to keep process servers safe while they perform their duties.” As representatives of the court, many process servers feel that they are entitled to the same protection as other workers involved in the legal process. In any case, with the heightened emotions that come with serving process and the situations that can arise, it’s important for process servers to be protected from assault.
