After 11 years of fighting, Mike Weston has bogus conviction overturned

Featured

On March 10, 2016 After 11 years of fighting, Mike Weston has bogus conviction of “obstruction of a peace officer” overturned by Reno judge Pete Sferrazza.
  1. The Washoe County District Attorney admits that the Nevada Highway Patrol edited dash cam video of Trooper Ed Bowers to falsely accuse Mike Weston of obstructing a peace officer.
  2. The Nevada Supreme Court recently decided obstruction citations are unconstitutional in 2015 SCOTT (WILLIAM) VS. DIST. CT. (STATE) case # 67331.
  3. The Washoe County District Attorney  (represented by former Carson City DA deputy Travis Lucia) had no objection to the court vacating and expunging the wrongful conviction and the refunding of fines, fees and costs to Mike Weston.

Nevada Highway Patrol corruption, dash cam tampering & retaliation – The Mike Weston story

Mike Weston’s fist protest against former disgraced Washoe Co. DA Dick Gammick at the Washoe County Courthouse in Downtown Reno, NV.

The Court Pleading that won the case:


Judge Pete Sferrazza

Comes now Michael Weston in proper person to move the Court to reconsider and have an oral hearing on the matter or in the alternative alter/amend the signed March 08, 2013, and oddly filed on March 07, 2013, order denying motion to vacate by Judge Scott E. Pearson since the Nevada Supreme Court has ruled obstruction and delay laws/ordinances unconstitutional in 2015 SCOTT (WILLIAM) VS. DIST. CT. (STATE) case # 67331 and the State does not oppose the relief requested by the Defendant and they also concur with setting an oral hearing on the matter.

Memorandum of points and authorities

The Nevada Justice Court Rules of Civil Procedure (“NJRCP”) allow the court to reconsider and/or alter and amend an order pursuant to NJRCP Rule 59(E).

On December 31, 2015 the Nevada Supreme Court has ruled obstruction and delay laws/ordinances unconstitutional in 2015 SCOTT (WILLIAM) VS. DIST. CT. (STATE) case # 67331.v

The March 08, 2013 order denying motion to vacate by Judge Scott E. Pearson is based on the erroneous notion that the Plaintiff filed a legal “Opposition”No “Opposition” was ever filed by the Plaintiff in this instant matter in the timeframe allowed since Plaintiff filed a late answer dated March 06, 2013. The Plaintiff instead missed the time deadline by filed the Opposition as the record clearly shows.

 

The Plaintiff belatedly responded to the Defendants motion on March 06, 2013 and they make several concessions and concede to the Defendants requested relief. The Plaintiff states The State would not oppose the sealing of the Defendant’s record. Thus, if the relief granted is limited to that requested by the Defendant, namely vacating his conviction and returning his fees paid by the defendant without findings of fact or conclusions of law, the State would not oppose such relief. However, the Court may oppose the return of the fine.” This concession by the Plaintiff/State clearly conveys to the Court that the State does not oppose the primary relief of VACATING HIS CONVICTION that the Defendant is requesting!  The Plaintiff/State also concedes to returning the fees to the Defendant and they do not oppose returning the fine and instead leave that decision to the Court and even concurs that in may be appropriate for the Court to set this matter for a hearing to seek justice. See line 19-26.  

In the Plaintiff’s July 16, 2012 late Opposition they admit to editing the Nevada Highway Patrol (“NHP”) dash camera audio/video on page 2 line 20-12 where they state “Deleting portions of a video and leaving a timestamp to reflect such was done in not misconduct, let alone fraud.” The Court must understand that the timestamps show missing minutes and minutes that are longer and/or shorter than sixty seconds indicating intentional fraud. The edited dash cam video also shows a superimposed timestamp with no time stamp inconsistencies in an attempt to fraudulently show that there was no editing of the said audio/video. Clearly the NHP audio/video was intentionally edited to remove exculpatory evidence in an egregious and fraudulent effort to deny the Defendant his due process.  See the submitted DVD video.

The Defendant disagrees and asserts that the deleted portions of the audio/video were malicious and fraudulent.  The Defendant was disenfranchised during the original proceedings when the Plaintiff only showed 2 minutes and 8 seconds of the said dash cam audio/video.  Furthermore, the Defendant was never given a true and full copy of the said dash cam audio/video prior to his hearing.

The Defendant was also denied due process when he timely filed his appeal.

REQUEST RELIEF

Defendant respectfully requests the Court to have an oral hearing on this matter and set a date.

Defendant respectfully requests the Court to vacate the original order upholding the charge of  NRS 197.190 and reimburse Defendant his $300.00 dollar fine, court fees and court costs in this matter. Defendant further requests that his record in expunged of this matter.

Washoe County DA Christopher J Hicks

Washoe DA Chris Hicks

The Plaintiff states “The State would not oppose the sealing of the Defendant’s record. Thus, if the relief granted is limited to that requested by the Defendant, namely vacating his conviction and returning his fees paid by the Defendant without findings of fact or conclusions of law, the State would not oppose such relief. However, the Court may oppose the return of the fine.” This concession by the Plaintiff/State clearly conveys to the Court that the State does not oppose the primary relief of VACATING HIS CONVICTION that the Defendant is requesting!  The Plaintiff/State also concedes to returning the fees to the Defendant and they do not oppose returning the fines to the Defendant.

Congressional Testimony: Mike Weston to Bill Windsor of Lawless America in Carson City, Nevada

 

mike weston
On June 19, 2005, Weston was run off Interstate 80 near the Keystone exit in Reno by two vehicles traveling at extremely high speed. When he returned to the road, he soon came upon a Nevada Highway Patrol cruiser on the shoulder of the highway. Its driver, Officer Edward Bowers, had stopped a large pickup truck and was in process of issuing a citation to the truck’s driver.

NHP1Weston stopped his car behind the trooper’s cruiser.

After waiting at least three minutes to observe the officer’s situation and to determine that the officer was not engaged in a threatening scenario, Weston approached Bowers to report that he had just been run off the road by two reckless drivers who posed a clear and present danger to other vehicles. Significant dialogue discussed during this exchange is not included in an audio-video tape as played during Weston’s trial; this proves that evidence was altered to undermine truth. The tape was shot by a camera onboard the NHP cruiser.

Moments later, Bowers recognized Weston as a person who had previously criticized him. Bowers’ focus shifted to Weston being a critic and he, Bowers, indicated no concern with Weston’s close avoidance of what might have been a fatal accident ~ nor with the clear and present danger to other vehicles posed by the two speeding vehicles Weston reported to him.

Without issuing a warning to Weston, as mandated by law, Bowers issued a citation to Weston for “obstructing and delaying a peace officer”. The audio-video tape mentioned above proves that Bowers did not issue a warning as required by law. Weston was fully cooperative with Bowers; the tape documents this.

On August 19, 2005, Weston found himself in a kangaroo court with “Judge” Fidel Salcedo presiding. During this scenario Weston was victimized by editing of the audio-video tape, complete with a doctored timestamp, and by Officer Bowers lying under oath (perjury).

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

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

Ty Robben produces the “missing” documents! This is straight out of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia…

Nevada Appeal and Carson NOW censoring the news again?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The missing stipulation has been found – Robben not on house arrest!

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

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.

Motion to DQ Judge Tatro and DA Rombardo from Ty Robben case

This is a public Motion to Disqualify Carson City Judge John Tatro and DA  Neil Rombardo from Ty Robben case. Obviously, there’s a massive conflict-of-interest based on the Judicial Ethics Compliant I’ve filed with the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline against Justice of the Peace, John Tatro.

Neil Rombardo, you’re a “public servant” and Taxpayers pay your salary and can demand you step down via the Carson City Council (Board of Supervisors) and petition for an investigation or simply, your ouster from office.

I’ll file the “Nevada Ethics Complaint” against Neil Rombardo ASAP. I’ll motion to have the Carson City District Attorney disqualified from the case. My situation with DA Rombardo  and the the massive conflict-of-interest based on the Judicial Ethics Compliant I’ve filed with the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline against JP John Tatro. The constant court hearings, and perpetual harassment and violation of rights has to STOP. You have usurped the people of Carson City because “an injustice to one is an injustice to ALL”.

JP Tatro & DA RombardoGET OFF MY CASE’
& step out of office now 
please and avoid further embarrassment to the
Nevada Judicial System.

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend, but I don’t know if you know who I am
Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies Continue reading

The following is my explanation as to why the judicial officer named in this complaint has violated the Nevada Code of Judicial Conduct or suffers from a disability.

I am [select one]: [X] one of the litigants

The judge did the following things that I believe constitute misconduct (please be as specific as possible about the event or action and attach additional pages, if required).

nevada crime scene

I am writing this judicial ethics compliant against the very, very corrupt and impaired Justice of the Peace (“JP”) John Tatro of the Carson City Justice Court. “JP Tatro is not a well man.” Says my lawyer William Routsis recalling an episode of JP Tatro yelling, frothing at the mouth and lunging over the bench at Mr. Routsis. The incident was caught on the court audio/video. JP Taro has a long history of judicial complaints and violations of the Judicial Code of Conduct (“NCJC”) including a similar complaint in 2006 against JP Tatro by activist Tonja Brown. Ms. Brown and I are both ANTI Corruption activists in Carson City, NV and have protested against the Carson City courthouse. Both of us have had negative experiences with courthouse Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) $$ A FOR PROFIT ENTERPRISE $$  The DAS is also known as the (“KGB”). Ms. Brown was abused and arrested by the DAS for alleged “trespassing” into the courthouse to refresh herself! The courthouse is a public building.

Both Ms. Brown and I have protested and filed complaints against JP Tatro for his flagrant disregard for the law, the constitution and the NCJC as well as using DAS and the Justin Brothers Bail Bondsmen and their “Bounty Hunters” to illegally cross the State line into So. Lake Tahoe, CA and acting in concert with DAS and JP Tatro to act under the color of law and “serve a warrant” for the Carson City, Nevada, Justice Court JP John Tatro and his DAS – illegally and with callous and total disregard for the law and my rights and the rights of others in the State of California.
