Warehouse Warren And Her Machine Get Another Project Passed

In the face of overwhelming resident opposition, the Fontana City Council on Tuesday March 12 approved a massive warehousing and industrial business park project at the southeastern corner of the city.
The West Valley Logistics Center is to entail seven high cube warehouses for a total space of 3.4 million square feet, to be built within the West Valley Logistics Center Specific Plan Project Area, bounded on the north by a Southern California Edison (SCE) Utility Corridor, on the west by the Jurupa Hills, on the south by residential properties within the City of Jurupa Valley, and on the east by residential uses within Bloomington.
The project applicant, Red Rock Development, obtained a recommendation on the project from the planning commission on January 15 by a vote of 4-to-1, with Commissioner Laura Vasquez dissenting. The commission majority ran counter to planning staff’s call for the project to be rejected.
This Tuesday, Michael Morris, speaking on behalf of Red Rock, sought to stir up excitement for the project. “This project,” Morris said, “when approved and the first building permit is issued will start a series of payments to the City of Fontana that will total to $19 million to the city’s general fund for off-site parking improvements and other municipal needs. Development impact fees paid at the permit stage will be in excess of 14 million [dollars] paid to the city of Fontana, school fees in excess of 2 million [dollars] will be paid to the Colton Unified School District, even though the project will not directly generate students that will impact the school district. The property tax assessment at complete build-out will be in excess of $475 million, and based on the city’s 21.7 percent to the city the fire district and parks will total more than one million [dollars] annually. The permanent jobs created will be in excess of 2,000, another 4,000 jobs related to construction and another 2,000 related to infrastructure construction. The permanent jobs will be listed in the logistics trade and logistics supply chains.”
Morris continued, “The economic output impact both direct and indirect and induced will be more than 740 million [dollars] generated through construction, building construction and operation to Fontana, San Bernardino County and the regional economy.”
The vast majority of the public weighing in with regard to the project at the hearing were far less enthusiastic, with only a few members of local construction unions offering any encouragement to the council to approve the project.
Tomasa Manlove said, “I do not want a warehouse in our Beautiful Bloomington Hills. We already have enough warehouses that have recently been put on Cedar Avenue, about three of them. We don’t need another one, especially in those hills. It will decrease the value of our houses, of our property.”
Shiraz Tangri, an attorney with the law firm of Meyers Nave representing the County of San Bernardino, said, “We ask the city to deny the project at this point in time. The county has expressed its concerns about environmental impacts on multiple occasions over the past five years. We appreciate the city’s efforts to try to meet with the county to discuss these issues, but at this time the final environmental impact report for the project does not address the county’s fundamental concerns about this new industrial facility. The county’s primary concern is that the project’s traffic, air quality, noise and drainage impacts will unduly burden county facilities. The project’s extensive truck traffic will adversely impact county residents, including those in the Bloomington community. Beyond that, the final environmental impact report does not comply with the California Environmental Quality Act’s fundamental requirements to disclose, analyze and mitigate the many impacts this massive logistics facility will create on the environment. The project description is vague and inconsistent. It’s unclear exactly what specific uses will be developed or who the users will be, what hours the center will operate, how the construction will be phased, whether hazardous materials will be transported and used on the site, and what off-site improvements should ultimately be required for the project. The environmental impact report underestimates the truck traffic generation.”
Gary Grossich, a Colton planning commissioner and the chair of the Bloomington Municipal Advisory Council, said, “This project proposes to run 100 percent of its traffic through Bloomington. I spoke with your staff and was told there are currently 60,000 trips a day over the large already-improved Sierra interchange. The 2019 estimate for the Cedar Interchange with this project is almost 65,000 trips on an interchange designed for 41,000 daily trips. The 65,000 trips do not include this proposed project and may not even include the 2.2 million square feet of warehouses Rialto is building on our border at the old El Riveno Country Club. I would point out that almost 75 Bloomington residentially-zoned properties along Locust would need to be purchased by the developers who have no eminent domain rights. Moreover, purchase of these properties to allow 2,000 diesel trucks to travel up and down Locust would cause an impact to the residential neighborhoods that cannot be mitigated. Along with that, the county would end up being responsible for the cost of continuing future maintenance to wear and tear from all the trucking. Locust is currently a lightly-traveled street. Even with the proposed mitigation, the existing conditions will not improve. They will worsen. Mitigation measures are used to alleviate impacts, not to be used as a justification to cause other negative impacts that cannot be mitigated. Approving this project would most likely result in the entire Locust corridor being forced to be rezoned to industrial instead of its current residential zoning. Bottom line, the residents of Bloomington have the sole right to make decisions regarding the future of Bloomington. Bloomington continues to suffer negative traffic impacts from industrial projects located on our borders from both Rialto and Fontana, along with massive amounts of illegal trucking operations, many of which are directly related to our neighboring cities’ projects. These illegal trucking operations are operating next to our schools and in the middle of our residential neighborhoods. Bloomington cannot continue to carry the traffic burden of neighboring cities’ projects while our community suffers from the negative impacts.”
Residents of the area told the council that one of the oldest trees on record, one that outlived the Ice Age, is located in the Jurupa Hills. Its existence is threatened by the project, they said.
Bloomington and Jurupa Hills residents said that the project would have minimal impact on Fontana, and that all of impact would be imposed on neighboring community.
Thomas Rocha of Bloomington said, “This project would not only eliminate our horse trails and our foothills, but it would destroy my community of Bloomington. Personally, like hundreds of others, I am tired of this game that you and the county keep playing on our lives. You send out notices, you ask for our opinions on certain projects, you go to numerous hearings, developers with their fancy suits show up and tell you how good this project is for our community, using fabricated numbers all based on speculation. They bring in union workers here to fill the seats and tell us how much they need these jobs close to their house. Believe me, I’m all for unions – I’ve been a union member for 40 years. As a shop steward we build up communities, we don’t tear them down. One thing we taught, being a shop steward, is union rights and human rights go hand-in-hand. The basic human right that every man woman and child has is to work, play and raise their children in a clean and toxic-free environment. The environmental groups are here with hard, proven facts. They tell you how harmful these projects are and all the negative impacts they are going to have on our lives, to our communities. They [the city council and county supervisors] give the community members five minutes to speak. They come up there and spill their heart out to you guys. You act like you’re listening. You look at them. You act concerned. But you don’t really care. You’re not even paying attention right now. When does this stop? We have enough vacant warehouses in the Inland Empire. When is enough enough? Put our union bothers and sisters to work. Let them build houses. We need houses. We have a housing shortage. The developers and you guys always talk about income. But one thing you never talk about is the outcome. The income you guys bring [from building warehouses] isn’t enough to get you out of your mother’s house, to pay utilities and to pay rent. Let’s talk about the outcome. The end results, the way this all turns out, are the consequences we face for your irresponsible land use decisions that you continue to make. None of you on this board or the planning commission or the developers will have to face or raise your children in this outcome. Our children will suffer being overburdened with particulate matter, getting asthma and stunting their lung growth. Our elderly, like me, will suffer with chronic ill health. It will shorten our life span. Our roads, our quality of life, and our air quality will be forever changed.”
Jim Hosmanek said, “With the added trucks we’re going to have more congestion. We’ll bring in some businesses that will probably be automated. You’re losing jobs there. I’m old. I wanna get out of here and move to Arizona because California’s expensive and I can’t afford it. My military benefits don’t pay that much. I’m older and I really don’t like kids, they irritate me, because I’m old. They’re the greatest thing in the world, but they just get on my nerves. I’m glad my kids have grown up. They’ve gone to school, they’re educated, but they’re gone. I don’t have grandkids. The traffic is gonna increase. As I’ve gotten older, I don’t have the road rage. I wave to people when I piss them off because I’m the old guy driving down the road and I drive real slow and I don’t really care because I really don’t have any place to be. My biggest deal is driving past the schools. How many schools do we have in that general area? They have a lot of schools in that area and these kids walk right in the middle of the street. One of these days – mark my words – one of these days… one of these days some kid is going to get killed. One kid is one kid too many to get killed when a big-ass truck for some stupid ass like me, speeding by because I can’t get somewhere and I kill a kid, a trucker kills a kid, somebody kills somebody. Mark my words.”
Members of San Bernardino-based Hod Carriers and Laborers Local 783 supported the project, saying it would provide jobs that are proximate to where they live.
Ericka Flores, with the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, said the zoning change being granted for the project will precipitated future health risk escalations for nearby residents.
Andrea Vidaurre, a policy analyst at Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, characterized the project as irrational.
“The West Valley Logistics Center will bring more than 6,000 vehicle trips, 2,000 of which will be diesel trucks,” said Vidaure. Heavy duty vehicles emit up to five times the amount of carbon monoxide per mile versus a light-duty vehicle. The project will certainly help to worsen the pre-existing pollution in the bordering communities of Bloomington, Fontana, and Jurupa Valley.”
The West Valley Logistics Center, to be built on a site originally planned for a 1,154-home residential project an elementary school and private and joint-use recreational facilities, required a zone change for approval.
Assemblymembers Eloise Gomez Reyes and Freddie Rodriguez and State Senator Connie Leyva signed a letter of opposition which asserted the project’s vicinity to sensitive communities will trash the quality of life of residents throughout the region through increased air pollution, noise and traffic congestion.
“The Fontana Planning Commission staff recommended denying the West Valley Logistics Center as the environmental analysis shows that it have significant and unavoidable impacts on traffic and air quality. Given the environmental injustices faced by this community, we request that the City of Fontana reconsider this project,” according to the letter.
Project applicants said the site will create about 4,000 construction jobs during an 18- to 24-month period, and an additional 2,000 jobs once the warehouses are running.
Councilmember Jesse Sandoval, before casting the lone no vote against the project, said the call of union members for the project to be approved did not move him because the decent paying work to be generated consisted of temporary jobs, and most of the warehouse jobs were poor paying positions provided through staffing agencies.
Sandoval said nearby homes and schools would be impacted by noise, traffic and pollution created by the warehouses.
Mayor Acquanetta Warren, who has earned the sobriquet “Warehouse Warren” because of her practice of accepting massive scale political donations from warehouse developers and supporting their projects, said the concerns voiced by those in opposition to the project could be overlooked because the the project is good for Fontana and will result in the addition of thousands of local jobs.
In response to suggestions that the eventual tenants at the project site were unknown, she asked Morris if those who would occupy the buildings had been determined. Morris told her that what he is engaged in is “called speculative building because the tenant is not yet known.” That did not dim Warren’s enthusiasm for the project. She pressed him for an indication that the buildings would not be used simply as warehouses but rather for manufacturing operations. Morris was not able to make that commitment, but indicated that some manufacturers might take up operation there. “W certainly hope so.”
Warren was not able to count on her longstanding council ally, John Roberts to back her in supporting the project because he owns property in the area and did not vote because of a potential conflict of interest.
Councilmembers Jesse Armendarez and Phillip Cothran, who are members of her political machine, came through for her.
They declared that a so-called decision of “overriding consideration” offset any downside of the project relating to incompatible land use in that the potential for job creation was too valuable to pass up.
Armendarez, perhaps self-conscious about what Rocha had said about feigning interest in the sentiment of the public and then voting in an opposite direction, said: “We do listen to you. You may not like my decision, but we do listen.”
Cothran, in a statement that was scripted for him by Warren and her advisors, said he supports bringing jobs to Fontana through more warehousing. He said manufacturing jobs will benefit the entire community.
The project was approved by a 3-to-1 margin.

Doubting Gomez’s Discretion, Victorville Ensures She’ll Miss Mountaintop Orgy

Action by the Victorville City Council last week has renewed longstanding criticism and suspicion with regard to the cooperative and overlapping application of the separate governmental authorities exercised by the County of San Bernardino and its 24 cities. In particular, municipal and county officials find themselves under the uncomfortable focus that has again arisen as a result of certain improprieties weaved into the fraternization amongst them at what has come to be a traditional conference that takes place in Lake Arrowhead on an annual basis.
A recurrent criticism of government is that the rights of citizens have been consistently eroded by means of what has come to be known as “agency-to-agency privilege.” While much of the information the government gathers is considered to be public, governmental officials often restrict its availability to anyone outside that governmental entity, i.e., citizens who are not employed by that particular branch or level of the government. That restriction is routinely lifted, however, if the entity making a request for the data is an employee or official with another governmental entity. This sharing of information is an example of agency-to-agency privilege. Other examples of the exercise of agency-to-agency privilege typically consist of the cooperation between governmental entities, including the sharing or lending of resources, facilities, equipment and manpower.
San Bernardino County’s annual County-City Conference, usually held at the Lake Arrowhead Resort, a luxury hotel on the shore of Lake Arrowhead considered one of the county’s premier getaway venues, involves seminars and presentations relating to governance and specific issues of note with regard to finance, infrastructure and shared interests between the county and some of the cities. The conference also typically involves a venue for social interaction between government officials in a variety of settings, including ones on a scale from the relatively formal to the progressively more and more intimate. Alcohol is commonly used as an emollient. In a good number of cases over the years, that intimacy has progressed to an ultimate conclusion, as when one year the sheriff of the county spent the night in the room of a councilwoman from Grand Terrace.
Perhaps the most famous, or perhaps infamous, of these episodes of intimacy among attendees of the County-City Conference occurred at the one held on March 23 and 24, 2006.
Mike Ramos was then the district attorney, having first been elected to that office in 2002. Two weeks prior to the conference, he had learned that no opponent had registered by the deadline to run against him in that year’s election, an indication, essentially, that he would remain as district attorney at least until 2011, as the next election for district attorney in San Bernardino County thereafter would not come until 2010. Confident in the knowledge that his action would not be used against him politically and aware as well that his position and authority as the county’s top prosecutor provided him with an even further layer of insulation, Ramos fully immersed himself in the general licentiousness the soiree entailed, drinking himself to a point of inebriation. Before doing so, however, the-then 49-year-old district attorney set his sights on the then-38-year-old Doreen Boxer, who just two months previously had been hired as San Bernardino County’s public defender. Ramos approached Boxer, who was seated on an oversized chair in hotel’s lobby near the entranceway to the hotel’s restaurant. A few minutes later, they were spotted inside the restaurant, seated closely together in a booth. Later that evening, Ramos and Boxer were seen together in an elevator. Numerous witness at the conference, including Supervisor Josie Gonzales and then-supervisors Dennis Hansberger and Bill Postmus, as well as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, saw Ramos and Boxer exiting the elevator in a state of partial undress.
The public defender’s office provides criminal defenses to county residents charged with crimes who are indigent or otherwise incapable of making financial arrangements to obtain legal representation. In this way, the district attorney’s office often squares off against the public defender’s office. The public defender almost exclusively goes to court against the district attorney’s office. For that reason, at least some of Ramos’s employees were aghast to learn that their boss had initiated some level of a romantic physical relationship with Boxer.
County officials were not particularly bothered by what had occurred, and Boxer was permitted to remain as public defender, though she was reportedly queried about her relationship with Ramos by members of the board of supervisors sometime after the conference. More than three years later, Ramos’s penchant for womanizing blew up into a full-blown scandal, including revelations of his affairs with three of the deputy prosecutors in his office, a one-time deputy prosecutor who was promoted to the specially-created position of assistant to the district attorney, an office management consultant to the district attorney’s office, a member of the training staff with the California District Attorney’s Office staff in Sacramento, two investigative technicians in the district attorney’s office and one of its paralegals. Thereafter, one of those, then-District Attorney’s Office Evidence Technician Cheryl Ristow, sued Ramos and the county, claiming she had initiated a consensual off-and-on relationship with Ramos in September 2003 that lasted three-and-a-half years. After she sought to terminate the relationship, she maintained, he continued to pursue and harass her, and she alleged she faced a hostile work environment and retaliation thereafter. When Ramos labeled her claim “false and politically motivated,” the county authorized the hiring of the law firm of Curiale Hirschfield & Kraemer, under a $75,000 contract, in an effort to absolve Ramos and the county of any wrongdoing. Attorneys acting in the role of investigators with Curiale Hirschfield & Kraemer, however, in short order confirmed that Ramos had sexual relations with at least four of his employees along with the incidental fact that the County-City Conference was, in the words of one attendee “a huge fuckfest.” By arranging to have the investigation carried out not by licensed investigators but rather by attorneys, together with the application of a $65,000 uprating of the Curiale Hischfield & Kraemer contract to a total of $140,000 for the work on the Ramos womanizing matter, the firm delivered a sanitized version of its findings for public consumption which found there was no retaliation aimed at Ristow, and that any disciplinary action leveled at her while she was yet employed with the district attorney’s office was not retaliation as she characterized it, but rather corrective action related to her job performance “based on objective, verifiable and current concerns. Whether Ramos did or did not have welcome – or unwelcome – sexual relationships” with other employees or others with whom such interaction would have been inappropriate such as Boxer or the training staff member with the California District Attorney’s Office “is irrelevant to whether or not he, or individuals at his request or suggestion, retaliated against Ristow,” the report delivered by Curiale Hischfield & Kraemer to the county stated. “Thus, while encouraged by many to delve into the muck or rumor and scandal, that was neither our charge nor an obligation necessitated by the issue presented.” As the matter had in its entirety been handled by lawyers, the investigation fell within the rubric of attorney- client privilege, eliminating any chance that the embarrassing and damning information the investigation had unearthed or had simply come across would ever be revealed.
Having dodged that bullet, county and city officials have continued with the annual City-County Conference in the years since. Unsurprisingly, the conference has evolved into a closed one, at which members of the public are unwelcome and where press participation is virtually non-existent.
For years, county and city officials have conveyed and frolicked about in Lake Arrowhead well outside the scrutiny of the public. On March 5, however, Victorville Mayor Gloria Garcia, in conjunction with council members Jim Cox and Debra Jones and City Attorney Andre de Bortnowski took action which has redirected attention to the revelry near the mountaintop. Ironically, it appears that action was intended to keep one of the better-kept secrets of the privilege of governance under wraps.
All mayors and council members in the county’s 24 cities are extended an invitation to the conference. As a matter of course all of the Victorville City Council was invited to attend. In response, city staff at Victorville City Hall prepared an action item for the March 5 council meeting calling for an appropriation of $1,959.65 to cover the tab of all five council members’ official business travel to the 2019 city-county conference, including the cost of registration at the conference, hotel accommodations and parking.
When the council took up the item, Mayor Gloria Garcia made a motion to exclude Councilwoman Blanca Gomez from the business travel expenditure authorization.
“I move to authorize council to attend the conference with the exception of Councilmember Gomez due to her continued disregard of council policy and procedures,” Mayor Garcia said.
Councilwoman Debra Jones seconded the motion but before the council could vote on it, Gomez interjected, “I create a substitute motion to include all council members. Gomez said she was doing so “because what you would be doing is you will be bringing discrimination against the city and this is not fair for a taxpayer. You can’t just arbitrarily do stuff like that. You are setting a precedence and I know that the city attorney has been following it greatly. So I would like for you to comment as well.”
“I don’t see any indication of discrimination with respect to the current motion on the table,” said City Attorney Andre DeBortnowski.
“So, then what you’re saying is it’s okay for the council members – four of them – to exclude me because they feel they have the power to exclude me, Mr. Attorney?” Gomez countered.
“I haven’t seen any vote on the discussion yet,” said de Bortnowski in sidestepping the question. “That’s premature.”
“You haven’t seen it yet?” Gomez pressed.
“There hasn’t been any action,” responded de Bortnowski.
“Well, when it takes action, I would like your legal opinion to be imported,” said Gomez.
Councilwoman Rita Ramirez-Dean seconded Gomez’s motion that all five of the city’s council members attend.
Before that vote took place, Councilman James Cox made the point that he had recently attended a League of California Cities conference on his own dime, notwithstanding the consideration that the city was on the verge of paying the registration costs and incidental costs of a room and meals at the Arrowhead Resort for the members of the council to attend the City-County Conference. “In this motion here, for Lake Arrowhead, this is a City-County Conference. It’s different from the League of California Cities. Certainly the mayor and mayor pro tem need to attend those. I think our new council needs to attend. I’ll make it easy. I don’t need to attend. If I do, I’ll pay my own way, as I usually do. We don’t point that out a lot, but this is an important meeting for those three members of the council.”
Speaking directly to Gomez, Cox, apparently acceding to a distinction that Gomez had made between “the city,” meaning the officials and employees who populate City Hall as opposed to the residents of the city, accused Gomez of being disloyal to her elected colleagues and the city’s employees. “It’s difficult, but in the council meeting you said you would never represent the city,” said Cox. “Those are your words. You will not represent the city. You represent the voters. You will not represent the city. Why would you go to a meeting if you refuse to represent the city? I can’t support you to go to a meeting and represent some other point of view. And we have a policy that says the position of the city is the mayor and the council or the whole council. If you agree to do that, I think you should go to the meeting, but as long as your position is that you will not represent the city, I don’t think that you should be there. I think you just shouldn’t.”
Cox is a creature of government, particularly in Victorville. He began as a mid-level staffer with the city in November of 1967 and was elevated to the city manager post in December 1969. He led the city for thirty years, retiring in December 1999. Cox subsequently served as Apple Valley town manager in an extended interim capacity, when he was lured out of retirement in 2008. He subsequently came back as Victorville city manager in 2009, remaining in that position for more than two years.
The item on the agenda consisted of a staff recommendation that “that the city council authorize official business travel to the 2019 city-county conference for all council members in the total amount of $1,959.65 for registration, hotel and parking.”
Gomez said she thought that altering the recommendation to exclude her was tantamount to a violation of the Ralph M. Brown Act, California’s open public meeting law which requires that issues to be voted on must be advertised on the agenda 72 hours ahead of the vote. The council’s impromptu alteration of the item changed what was being voted upon, she asserted. “If we want to add to the agenda, and not pass this one, that is what we should do,” she said.
Bortnowski said, “Ms. Gomez, I respectfully disagree with you. Right now, the recommendation before the council is to consider whether or not to fund all members going. Any council member can make a modification of that and submit a motion that differs from that. It’s related to the exact same subject matter. Totally appropriate.”
City Manager Keith Metzler said, “I’ve attended this event a couple of times representing the city and it’s an opportunity certainly for not only Victorville representatives to go but also be among the other representatives within the county. So, you’ll get an opportunity to, of course, network and work with your peers in other communities. But they also have an agenda that is largely educational as to things going on in the county, issues of particular interest to the county, and it also allows you to in some cases see best practices from some of your peers as to how they’re tackling or handling issues in their community.”
The vote was taken and Gomez’s substitute motion failed 2-3, with Garcia, Cox and Councilwoman Debra Jones voting against it.
The council then took up Mayor Garcia’s initial motion to have the four members of the city council excluding Gomez attend the conference and adjust the funding accordingly. “I’m happy to second it,” said Jones.
Recognizing the vote was not going to go her way, Gomez said before the vote was taken, “So, for the public that’s watching: They say they have the power to oust one because I don’t represent the people in terms of the city. Who is the city? You or us five? Who do we represent? Do I represent the people outside these four walls or do I represent four other council members’ ideologies?”
The council then voted 3-to-1 with Gomez in opposition and Ramirez-Dean abstaining in support of Garcia’s motion.
Since being elected to the Victorville City Council in 2016, Gomez has attracted controversy. She has crossed swords with virtually everyone on the council, current and former, with the exception of Ramirez-Dean. She has, on occasion, expressed reservations about action the council has taken in both public sessions and in closed executive sessions outside the scrutiny of the public. This has led to charges that Gomez has violated confidences and confidentiality. While much or most of what a governmental decision-making body such as a city council does is considered to be public action, cities are permitted to hold closed sessions to discuss items relating to real estate sales or purchases; the hiring disciplining or firing of city personnel; employee contract negotiations; and pending or ongoing litigation.
There was concern expressed that Gomez lacks the necessary discretion to avoid embarrassing the city, which in the context of preventing her attendance at the City-County Conference has been interpreted as worry that she would not keep her mouth shut about the orgiastic ongoings in Lake Arrowhead, thus ruining the good time that would be shared in not only by the solons from Victorville but the county’s 23 other municipalities and county officials as well.
de Bortnowski’s interpretation notwithstanding, there is some question as to whether the city council has the authority to disinvite Gomez from the conference.
According to David Wert, San Bernardino County’s official spokesman, “The county handles the invitations and reservations, and we email an invitation to each mayor and city/town council member individually, and a reservation including payment has to be submitted by or for each mayor and council member.”
Wert said, “The county does not concern itself with whether a mayor or council member’s reservation is made and/or paid for by the individual mayor or council member or their city/town on their behalf. There is no process by which a city/town must endorse or pay for a mayor or council member’s participation.”
It would thus seem that the county’s invitation to Gomez yet stands, whether or not the City of Victorville will pay for her registration and attendance, and she is free to register on her own. This leaves open the possibility that some person or entity interested in having Gomez’s eyes and ears present at the conference may sponsor her attendance.
With regard to the unrestrained and libidinous carousing that hase been a feature of the conference, Wert said, “I’ve attended all but maybe a couple City-County Conferences during the past 30 years and have never witnessed or even heard of anything that could be described as ‘unbridled licentiousness.’ Definitions of the ‘wild side’ may vary, but nothing more ‘wild’ than a few people relaxing at the hotel bar after the day’s events have concluded currently takes place at these conferences.”

 

Ontario Councilman Wapner Out As Supervisor Hagman’s Policy Advisor

With virtually no fanfare, Fourth District Supervisor Curt Hagman late last year removed Alan Wapner as his policy advisor.
Wapner’s departure came more than three years after Hagman moved the longtime Ontario city councilman into the post. Filling the position is Jeff Sorenson, who was previously serving as a member of Hagman’s staff in a capacity that entailed policy formulation.
When Wapner acceded to the advisor position in September 2015, it was viewed with surprise and skepticism in many quarters. Both Hagman and Wapner are classic alpha males who have functioned in the San Bernardino County political arena for a sustained period of time. They offer a study in contrasts and similarities that made their ability to coexist as functioning team members difficult given their penchant for dominating the fora in which they operate. Known in most quarters for their aggressive assertiveness, it seemed doubtful they could sustain a working relationship in the advent of any issues in which they held a political interest
Both are Republicans who have used slightly different formulas to obtain and stay in power. Hagman, a bail bondsman who scratched his way to the top of the Chino Hill political scene by running for city council and acceding to mayor before running successfully for the California Assembly, used his Republican Party affiliation as a stepping stone to office in the GOP-leaning expanse in San Bernardino County’s extreme southwest corner and the swath of eastern Orange County and southwest Los Angeles County in which his former 55th Assembly District was located. As his ticket in Sacramento was about to
expire in 2014 as a result of term limits, he ousted and then replaced Robert Rego as the chairman of the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee and from that position of strength utilized the fundraising capability open to him to defeat former Democratic Congresswoman Gloria Negrete-McLeod in the race for supervisor, despite her name recognition, power of incumbency as a congresswoman that offset his as an assemblyman, and the voter registration advantage Democrats held over Republicans in the Fourth District. In 2018, he again beat Negrete-McLeod, despite what had become by then a lopsided Democratic Party advantage in the Fourth District in terms of voter registration.
Wapner, a former police detective with the Ontario Police Department who retired on a service disability, bootstrapped his way into a position on the city council two-and-a-half decades ago. Despite efforts to move into higher political office, he has not been able to transform his success in Ontario to victory at the polls when he has vied for the California Assembly. With regard to several issues he has been a lightning rod for controversy, and has had a sometimes rocky relationship with his colleagues and other authority figures relating to issues of primacy and policy. Despite his GOP affiliation, he has had far less success in getting the local Party of Lincoln to assist him in his electioneering than has Hagman.
Wapner’s A-personality traits came to the fore eight years ago when he induced his colleagues on the Ontario City Council to wage near-war on the City of Los Angeles to break the larger metropolis’s ownership and management hold over Ontario Airport that resulted from a 1967 joint operating agreement between the two cities and Los Angeles’s fulfillment of performance milestones in that agreement that resulted in Ontario deeding the airport to Los Angeles in 1985. Pursuing an aggressive game plan that included litigation, Ontario convince Los Angeles to agree to the return of the airport to local control three years ago. Prior to that, Ontario had created the Ontario International Airport Authority, to which Wapner was appointed as its chairman. He has been the only chairman in that body’s history and upon Hagman’s election to the board of supervisors, Wapner agreed to move Hagman into a position on the Ontario International Airport Authority Board, replacing Hagman’s predecessor as Fourth County Supervisor, Gary Ovitt, a former Ontario mayor, on that panel. It was subsequent to that when Hagman took Wapner on as his policy advisor.
There was concern on multiple levels at that time about Wapner’s hiring. First, it had the appearance of Wapner being rewarded by Hagman for Hagman’s appointment to the airport authority board. Second, it created a situation in which Wapner, who in his capacity as authority chairman served in a fashion as Hagman’s boss, was now working for Hagman, such that each of them were now their boss’s boss. Third, it intensified the degree to which Hagman’s staff members were increasingly creatures of government. Wapner as a policeman and councilman was rooted in the government. Hagman’s then chief of staff, Mike Spence, was a longtime government employee and mayor and council member in West Covina. Ed Graham, a Chino Hills councilman and teacher by profession, was another of Hagman’s staff members. He would be replaced by Chino Hills Councilman Peter Rogers. Sorenson was formerly employed as an investigative technician with a county prosecutor’s office among other government posts.
At the time Hagman hired Wapner, Hagman acknowledged Wapner as a fellow alpha male and that their mutual need to dominate the situations in which they involve themselves could be a recipe for a clash. “We’ll play it out and give it a shot and see what happens,” Hagman said. “I have other alpha males and other elected officials on my staff. They all present the advantage of knowing the issues in this district and area and what they entail.”
What was at the root of Wapner’s departure is unclear. Hagman’s chief of staff, Katherine Kocheva, did not expound on the reason for his leaving or Sorenson’s promotion. The only issue relating to the matter she weighed in on was the suggestion that Wapner’s hiring in 2015 had been a quid pro quo or political sop provided as a reward for Hagman’s appointment to the Ontario International Airport Authority Board.
“The agreement to appoint a representative of the county on the Ontario International Airport Authority Board, specifically whoever served as the Fourth District supervisor, was reached between the county and the City of Ontario when they entered into the joint powers authority agreement to bring back Ontario Airport,” Kolcheva said. “The formation of the joint powers authority happened during Supervisor Gary Ovitt’s service on the board of supervisors.”
Sorenson has a bachelor of arts degree in political science from UCLA and a juris doctor degree from the La Verne School of Law. The website for the Fourth District states, “Jeff looks forward to using his strong sense of mission accomplishment and his appreciation of hard work to provide valuable insight and information to the supervisor. With these traits and his legal background, Jeff looks forward to serving the residents of the Fourth District.”

Chino Hills Council Elevates Montgomery To Replace Outgoing Bartlam

The City of Chino Hills has elected to promote from within to replace outgoing City Manager Konradt Bartlam by elevating Assistant City Manager Ben Montgomery to the city’s top administrative post, effective April 1.
Montgomery has made a steady climb over the last 13 years, after beginning in Chino Hills in 2006 as the neighborhood services manager. He was most recently previously promoted to the position of assistant city manager in 2007 from the post of interim finance manager. Prior to that he was the deputy city manager.
In his capacity as assistant city manager, Montgomery oversees information technology, community relations, emergency preparedness, human resources and labor relations, risk management, occupational safety and code enforcement, duties he also carried out as deputy city manager.
He served a three month stint as acting finance director in 2017. He held the deputy city manager post for slightly less than two years after working as assistant to the city manager in 2014 and 2015.
Previously he was employed as a management analyst with the City of Brea from 2000 to 2006. He was a management analyst and library assistant with the City of Whittier for nine years in the 1990s.
Montgomery holds a masters degree in business administration from the University of La Verne, a master of public administration degree from Cal State Long Beach; and two bachelors of arts degrees in economics and psychology from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
The city council acceded to Bartlam’s recommendation in conferring the position on Montgomery.
He has been hired into the post under a three-year contract
at an annual salary of $223,000, with benefits that include $1,538 a month in medical coverage and an $800 car allowance. Under the terms of his contract, he is to be provided a 3 percent salary increase in September 2019 and a 2 percent increase in September 2020.

Boy In Fashion

Lately I have been obsessed with the teen look for boys. They really are fashionably handsome lately. Fashion I believe is for everyone and this includes teenagers who are striving to be up on the fashion buzz. Boys can have very unique ideas from the type of soap they use down to the shoe gear they. And fashion trends are important if you’re going to be a stylish boy.  Some boys are confident and can make good choices with regard to their wardrobe and maintain their individuality.  I’ve seen them in elongated coats and light colored shirts which is a very stylish combo. Fashionable belts seem to be a hit of the moment with boys. If they’re wearing slacks or denim there’s something about the designer belts.  There’s something cute about an elongated sweaters boys love them. The bottom line is male wear has been dominating lately and young boys are starting to catch on. Just like the fanny pack boys are now Turing to a new idea of turning the bag into a necklace. What next? Short shorts I believe. It should be a scene this spring with a breath new and fresh looks coming down the streets. Can’t wait!

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of Henry Cooper
A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Derrek L. Cooper, in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN BERNARDINO.
THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Derrek L. Cooper be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.
THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in Dept. No. S36 at 8:30 a.m. on May 14, 2019 at Superior Court of California, County of San Bernardino, 247 West Third Street, San Bernardino, CA 92415, San Bernardino District.
IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.
IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under Section 9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Report Catalogs Rampant Brutalization Of Inmates At Adelanto Prison

Inmates at the Adelanto Detention Center, in particular ones with both mental and physical disabilities, are being subjected to abusive and inhumane conditions and treatment, according to a just-released report by the Disability Rights Center of California.
The report confirms in separate detail the findings of other studies and reports relating to the Adelanto Detention Facility.
The Adelanto Detention Center is the largest of the holding facilities maintained under the auspices of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement division of the Department of Homeland Security in California and one of the largest in the country, with an average detainee population of almost 2,000 people.
The facility is owned and operated by a private contractor, the GEO Group, Inc., pursuant to an intergovernmental service agreement between the Immigration and Customs Enforcement division and the City of Adelanto.
According to the Disability Rights Center of California, “Recent government policy changes regarding immigration enforcement priorities has made a significant increase in the detention of people with disabilities all but certain. Most notable is the January 2017 presidential order that terminated the exercise of ‘prosecutorial discretion’ for people with disabilities and other special populations. There has also been a dramatic rise in the detention of asylum seekers, who often carry with them experiences of trauma and have significant mental health needs.”
In a 64-page report “There Is No Safety Here” prepared for the Disability Rights Center of California by Aaron J. Fischer, litigation counsel; Pilar Gonzalez, supervising attorney; Richard Diaz, staff attorney; and Disability Rights Center subject matter experts Altaf Saadi, M.D., M.S.H.S. and Erica Lubliner, M.D., it is stated, “People held at Adelanto are subjected to punitive, prison-like conditions that harm people with disabilities. Adelanto is infused with unnecessarily harsh – and in effect, punitive – conditions, raising questions as to whether Immigration and Customs Enforcement and GEO Group are violating the constitutional rights of the people held there as civil detainees. Adelanto looks, feels and operates like a prison, from the extreme idleness and regimented daily schedule to the use of solitary confinement-type housing. In fact, the east side of the facility was constructed to be and was operated as a prison for many years. Immigration Customs Enforcement is underutilizing feasible alternatives to detention for people who can be effectively supervised in the community. The facility’s prison-like conditions disproportionately harm people with mental illness and other disabilities.”
The report continues, “Adelanto has an inadequate mental health care and medical care system, made worse by the facility’s counter-therapeutic conditions and practices. We identified many people with serious mental health needs who have suffered in detention. They receive inadequate clinical contacts and ineffective, non-individualized treatment. GEO Group fails to provide structured mental health programming to meet Adelanto detainees’ clinical treatment needs. GEO Group also restricts people’s ability to engage in self-directed activities, including something as simple as reading books that help them cope in detention. Men and women at the facility are further harmed by the facility’s harsh and non-therapeutic institutional responses to people in psychiatric crisis. When people are in crisis, they are met with pepper spray and extreme isolation. We also found several examples of deficient medication management practices that are dangerous and harmful. Overall, conditions at Adelanto are antithetical to the therapeutic, trauma-informed approach to treatment that is recommended by mental health professionals and that many people at the facility need. We found that GEO Group operates administrative and disciplinary segregation units that are extremely restrictive and in some cases reflect solitary confinement-type conditions. These segregation units put people with mental health disabilities at substantial risk of psychological and even physical harm. We found people who had suffered greatly in these units, and even attempted suicide. The specter of being placed in solitary confinement hangs over all Adelanto detainees. More than 50 offenses can result in a detainee’s placement in solitary confinement, including minor infractions like ‘refusal to clean assigned living area,’ ‘refusing to obey a staff member officer’s order,’ ‘being in an unauthorized area,’ or ‘failure to stand [during] count.'”
In an effort to hang onto its contract and minimize problems at the Adelanto facility and avoid scrutiny, thus reducing chances of corrective action, the GEO Group has hidden what is going on at the Adelanto Detention Center, according to the report.
“GEO Group significantly underreports data on the number of suicide attempts that occur at Adelanto, according to Fischer, Gonzalez, Diaz, Saadi and Lubliner. “The frequency with which detainees engage in self-harm or attempt suicide at the facility demands attention. However, we found that GEO Group’s reporting practices result in significant underreporting of this information. For example, GEO Group’s data, as reported to the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, show zero suicide attempts at the facility for the first ten months of 2018. Our investigation showed this to be demonstrably false.”
Whether those in the Adelanto Detention Center can be considered criminal inmates is a matter of definition. While some, many or perhaps all are technically in violation of United States immigration law, at least some have legitimate political asylum claims. The number of asylum seekers at Adelanto is substantial. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as of March 2018, there were 445 detainees who were seeking asylum, or 27 percent of the facility’s population. More than 50 percent of the women held at the facility were seeking asylum.
Two such prisoners seeking asylum were a man and wife, identified in the report only as Sofia and Aleksei.
According to the report, “Sofia sought asylum in the United States due to persecution she faced in Russia. She and her husband, Aleksei, were both detained at the Adelanto Detention Center starting in 2017. During our first interview, Sofia spoke in a whisper as she described her experiences in detention. A thick bandage covered her wrist. She had recently been hospitalized following an attempted suicide by cutting herself. Sofia explained how visits with her husband were rare and how requests to send him a letter or speak with him on the phone were denied. In addition to the distress caused by not being able to communicate with her husband, Sofia described feeling anxious and depressed based on her living conditions and lack of medical treatment at Adelanto. When she experienced intense headaches, her requests for medical care went unanswered. Other requests for small sources of comfort, such as a book in Russian or a sweater, were also denied. She requested to see mental health staff but found that ‘they make me feel worse.’ She explained: ‘Their advice or therapy are not suitable for my case . . . they tell us to exercise or breathe.’ Sofia, like her fellow detainees, has very limited and inconsistent access to outdoor recreation time, making it difficult to exercise regularly. Clinical staff also directed Sofia to use ‘religious coping’ even though she is not religious. A review of her medical records reveals that mental health staff persisted with these ill-fitting recommendations even as Sofia reported worsening mental health, had suicidal thoughts, and finally reached the point of wanting to kill herself. Approximately four-and-a-half months into her detention, Sofia attempted suicide. She had no history of suicidal thoughts or self-harm prior to her detention at Adelanto. She recalled: ‘I was tired of being here, of being detained. It was just too stressful.’”
According to the report, “Aleksei was apprehended by immigration agents along with his wife. He has diagnoses of pancreatitis and gastroesophageal reflux disease, a condition that causes intense abdominal and chest pain. His medications were discontinued when he arrived at Adelanto. Within a few weeks, his pain had become so severe that he could not walk or stand. Staff provided him ibuprofen repeatedly, which according to the Disability Rights Center experts is inappropriate for a patient with his condition and could lead to dangerous internal bleeding. After more than a year in detention with worsening symptoms, including symptoms of internal bleeding, Aleksei still had not received clinically indicated follow-up, such as an endoscopy ordered by medical staff. Records show that Aleksei had filed repeated grievances, and that the facility’s responses were inadequate. Aleksei described how he and other detainees felt that staff ‘treat us like animals.’ They were summarily punished for minor violations of facility rules. On one occasion, facility staff forced his entire housing unit to get up in the early hours of the morning and stand outside in the cold because some detainees had complained about one officer’s behavior towards them. Many of the men had no shoes and wore only underwear. After being unable to receive updates on his immigration case, Aleksei’s distress became unbearable and he began a hunger strike. He was placed in a suicide watch cell for two days. Aleksei recalled his time there as ‘torture. I could not sleep. They keep the lights on at all times. I had no water or food, no clothing.’ Aleksei’s trauma in the suicide watch cell lingered, and his depression worsened. He attempted suicide by lacerating a vein in his arm. The razor was too dull to inflict fatal harm, but he was again placed in the suicide watch cell. Aleksei recalls being so distraught that he yelled for someone to end his life. He was allowed no time outside the cell, no contact with his wife, and no clothes other than a heavy, tear-proof smock. After four days in the suicide watch cell, health care staff told him that the only way he would be released is if he said he was OK. So he did. After this second experience in the suicide watch cell, Aleksei withdrew from Adelanto’s mental health staff. He explained, as his hands visibly shook, ‘I am afraid of being sent back to the suicide room. I do not tell the doctor how I feel. I say everything is fine because I don’t want to go back . . . but I can’t sleep, there’s nightmares and I shake. I do not want to do anything but lay in bed.’”
According to the report’s authors, “We witnessed one incident firsthand that illustrated GEO Group’s punitive and counter-therapeutic response to a detainee’s psychiatric crisis. The detainee was being discharged from suicide watch when he suddenly ran down the hallway, an act that clinical staff described to us as related to his still unstable mental health condition. Notwithstanding this assessment, custody staff treated the incident as an ‘attempted escape’ and immediately placed the detainee in disciplinary segregation. Things got worse in the segregation unit. The man started banging his head against the wall and kicking his legs at custody staff who tried to restrain him. After some time, clinical staff directed that he be taken to an inpatient psychiatric hospital. A clinician who had evaluated this man told us that disciplinary segregation was not an appropriate placement for him.”
According to Fischer, Gonzalez, Diaz, Saadi and Lubliner, “Conditions at Adelanto pose serious risks to people with mental illness and other disabilities. The situation demands action. Access to treatment and disability-related accommodations must improve, and steps to reduce unnecessarily punitive conditions at the facility must be a top priority. At the same time, given the extraordinary risks and the harms to people with mental illness and disabilities detained at Adelanto, it is essential to ask: ‘Is it necessary to imprison this population? Are there less restrictive and less damaging alternatives that better serve the country’s constitutional freedoms and commitment to the rights, safety, and dignity of all?’”
The Disability Rights Center of California report does not exist in a vacuum. Questions regarding and criticism of the conditions imposed on detainees at the Adelanto Detention Center have been raised elsewhere. In February, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued a report that found immigrant detainees – people who typically are held for civil, not criminal actions – are treated like prisoners, kept in their cells up to 22 hours a day, and offered inadequate access to medical care and legal counsel in multiple California facilities that hold migrant detainees.

FBI And Local Investigators Experiencing Target Rich Environment In SB Grass Graft Fest

By Mark Gutglueck
Federal and local investigators are seeking to define the length, breadth and depth of collusion in the bribery and kickback scheme involving San Bernardino municipal officials and the slew of entrepreneurs given licenses by the city to operate cannabis-related businesses in the county seat on February 21.
At issue is not only how much money and by what means those payoffs were delivered to Mayor John Valdivia and members of the city council, but what knowledge City Manager Andrea Travis-Miler, senior elements within the police department, city consultant HdL and city staff within the community development division have regarding the provision of those inducements and whether they were involved in the distribution of that largesse from the project applicants meant to influence the selection process or are perhaps themselves recipients of some of it.
After years of resisting the legalized distribution of medical marijuana in San Bernardino that was permissible under the auspices of the passage of 1996’s Proposition 215/Compassionate Use of Marijuana Act and the delaying by more than two years compliance with voter mandates approved in 2016 legalizing in California and in San Bernardino the sale of marijuana as an intoxicant, the city council on February 21 voted to provide 16 of 39 applicants with permits to engage in commercial activity of one sort or another involving marijuana.
An evaluation of the applications for those permits and the city’s ordinance, zoning requirements, codes and municipal regulations shows that seven of those operations are out of compliance with the requirements in at least one, and in four of the cases at least two of the applicable standards. Meanwhile, at least four of the applicants which had defined operations and locations which were, or appeared to be, in total compliance were denied licenses to operate.
There is emerging evidence suggesting that city officials were shaking down applicants for either bribes or campaign donations. City officials or those speaking on their behalf have pointed out that reports of graft and bribery in the awarding of the permits are in error or are outright fabrications, which they insist is borne out by the consideration that many of the applicants who were turned down had made donations to the mayor and council. Still, an in-depth analysis indicates that those who were more liberal in their application of money in “taking care of” the city’s decision makers fared better in the commercial cannabis operation permitting sweepstakes than did those who were more parsimonious in the charity they exhibited toward the council and especially the mayor.
On February 20, Empire Connect, Pure Dispensaries, Have a Heart, JIVA, and PTRE Management, all of which are located in San Bernardino’s 3rd Ward at the extreme south end of the city, were given retail licenses. Microbusiness licensees went to Orange Show Cultivators, which is to engage in cultivation, manufacturing and distribution; SOCA Farms, involving retailing, cultivation and distribution; Central Avenue Nursery, a cultivator, retailer and distributor; and Nibble This, which is to entail retailing, manufacturing and distribution. All of those are located in the 3rd District. Nibble This was also provided with a second permit to open a second retailing, manufacturing and distribution operation at a location in the 6th Ward, on the northwestern corner of the city. Accessible Options was given a license to grow marijuana in an indoor nursery in the southeastern 1st Ward; 14 Four and GWC Real Estate Services were given agricultural clearance in the 3rd Ward; and Organtix Orchards was granted a cultivator’s license in the 6th Ward. AM-PM Management, located in the centrally-positioned 2nd Ward, was the recipient of a manufacturing permit and Blunt Brothers, a distributor, is to operate its warehouse and dispatch office in the 3rd Ward.
The day before the special meeting of the council on February 21 at which the 16 licenses were handed out, on February 20, a contingent of San Bernardino police officers traveled 77 miles west across the San Bernardino County/Los Angeles County boundary and descended upon the Pacific Palisades home of Stephanie Smith to serve a search warrant. Smith is the proprietor of Washington LLC, an entity that had applied for a permit. In Smith’s residence, which Smith shares with plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Alan Bittner and four of their five children, officers came across a substantial quantity of outdated oxycodone and hydrocodone, along with $200,000 in cash. The opioids were part of the painkiller supply utilized by Bittner in his now defunct plastic surgery practice. The $200,000 in cash at Smith’s residence was rent money paid by Smith’s tenants engaged in marijuana-related enterprises primarily consisting of cultivation operations who are leasing a substantial portion of the two million square feet of industrial space, primarily in Southern California, she owns. With those tenants, Smith deals primarily in cash because federal laws prohibit banks, which are federally insured, from engaging with businesses trafficking in marijuana, which is yet considered an illegal substance under federal law.
In a clear effort to wing Smith, the police police department took Smith into custody, booking her into the Lynwood Detention Facility in Los Angeles County and presenting the seized materials and the cash to the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office, along with a report stating that Smith was in possession of controlled substances which were being sold. Those charges are not likely to stick. Smith spent two nights in custody, largely because the San Bernardino Police Department prevailed upon the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to require that the $30,000 in bail she was able to immediately post be established as not being the proceeds of criminal activity. On February 22, she was released after such proof was provided.
Three days later, Smith came roaring back. On Monday February 25, Smith’s attorney, Ben Eilenberg, lodged on Washington LLC’s behalf a lawsuit against the City of San Bernardino.
According to Eilenberg, city officials, and all of them, are on the take. “The effects of the ‘pay for play’ corruption led to the city issuing a large number of licenses that were illegal,” according to the suit. In awarding the permits, according to Eilenberg, the city had failed to adhere to its own declared standards.
The suit states that “Over 50 percent of the issued licenses were illegal, thereby throwing the entire process into doubt.” Identified as out of compliance with the city’s codes, policies, municipal plan, zoning codes and/or general plan were Organtix Orchards, AM-PM Mgmt. Inc., Orange Show Cultivators, both Nibble This LLC operations, A Bud & Beyond, Blunt Brothers, and Accessible Options.
According to the suit, money originating with applicants for the licenses was being passed around to the city’s elected officials, and on occasion city staff in positions as high ranking as the city manager were coordinating how the money, disguised as political donations, was to be vectored and to whom, in return for which the licenses were granted.
Smith was able to marshal proof of her allegations. A private investigator employed by Smith succeeded in retrieving texts and emails that passed between city officials and cannabis operation applicants or their representatives in which preparations for the exchange of approval for money took place. The proof that something is amiss exists in the consideration that several of the cannabis operations that are out of compliance with the city’s standards were given permits while others which were in compliance came away empty-handed at the end of the February 21 special meeting, Eilenberg asserts.
Eilenberg’s accusations passed muster with the San Bernardino Superior Court in the person of Judge Janet M. Frangie, who on February 27 issued temporary restraining orders against seven of the businesses Washington LLC claims gained approval for operational plans that are in violation of the city’s municipal codes, policies, municipal standards, zoning codes and/or general plan. Those companies are Organtix Orchards, AM-PM Mgmt. Inc., Orange Show Cultivators, both Nibble This LLC operations, Blunt Brothers and Accessible Options. A Bud and Beyond, which Smith also alleged to be noncompliant, was not included in those restrained because the city had not granted it a permit.
When it rains, it pours. On March 1, Connected Cannabis Co., also known as EEL Holdings, LLC., represented by attorney Jeff Augustini, filed suit against the city in an action that mirrors the suit Smith brought. Connected Cannabis maintains that not only should the permits on the seven operations already suspended be rescinded but that all 16 that were approved be prohibited from proceeding. Several of those given licenses, and others, were not certified by the San Bernardino Community Development Department as being a requisite 600 feet or more away from schools, parks, churches, youth centers, operations where alcohol is served or sold as well as residences, according to Augustini. Moreover, Augustini suggests that “the credibility of the city’s selection process” has come into question “amid growing rumors and allegations of corruption, cronyism, political maneuvering, and the use of the process to score political points and to carry out political vendettas.”
Connected Cannabis wants the previous permitting process to be scratched in its entirety and the city to start over.
Spicing up an already hot dish is that two former members of the city council, Benito Barrios and Wendy McCammack, had an interest in two of the 39 applications. McCammack’s application, Central Avenue Nursery, succeeded in pulling down one of the licenses. A close examination of the details of McCammack’s application show it failed to meet two of the criteria, several of her competitors who were turned down by the city have said.
Moreover, it has recently come to light that seven separate entities – HC Club LLC, HAH 3 LLC, RZNHead Inc, Pure Dispensaries LLC, SB Pharma Holdings, Inc, Raquel Origel and AM-PM Management Inc. dba Cold Creek Organics – all obtained letters of authorization from the City of San Bernardino in December, issued in advance of the February 21, 2016 council meeting. According to Amna Haslam, a senior environmental scientist and specialist with the California Department of Public Health’s Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch which serves as the licensing agency for commercial cannabis operations, HC Club, HAH 3, RZNHead, Pure Dispensaries, SB Pharma Holdings, Raquel Origel and AM-PM Management were provided with their temporary licenses from the Bureau of Cannabis Control based on their each having a local permit or letter of authorization from the jurisdiction in which they are to operate.
Councilman Fred Shorett, who on February 21 voted with his colleagues to confer licenses upon the 16 anointed of the 39 applicants and reject the applications of the other 23, defended that action, saying “We had the attorney constantly weighing in on it. As to the innuendo of pay-to-play, I can only tell you that from my perspective on it what was done. The giving of the first fifteen or sixteen permits was done in accordance with the recommendations we had.”
There was no favoritism shown to any one, Shorett said, and the council did the best it could within the limitations of the knowledge it possessed relating to the applicants. “There was some discussion of moving one or two up,” he said, suggesting those discussions were not acted upon ultimately and the staff recommendation was followed in its entirety.
The licenses were evenly and fairly distributed, he said, within the limitation of how many were to be granted. “There was only one that I am aware of where more than one permit was given,” Shorett said. “I personally followed the recommendations. I’m just going to say that this was certainly a new process. I got all of my information on the applicants from our staff.”
Though Shorett acknowledged things went differently at the courthouse, he indicated no official complaints had been launched at City Hall. “Everything I heard from the applicants was our staff did an outstanding job,” Shorett said. “They worked hard and did a diligent job. Andrea [Travis-Miller] maintained more than an arms-length distance from this other than getting answers to questions, but she knew nothing more of the process than she needed to know. She was not involved in the process beyond that. And these claims that [former Mayor] Carey Davis was involved in pay-to-play and Carey Davis was asking for money from some of the people who were applying for marijuana licenses is a bunch of hooey. Carey Davis wouldn’t take money from somebody who was spitting on the sidewalk if there was an ordinance against that. I am absolutely positive that never occurred. He was adamantly opposed to letting marijuana into this city every step of the way until when the attorney explained we had to acquiesce,and even then we had to delay it.”
Shorett said complaints from those who did not succeed in their application for permits is par for the course, and that lawsuits from at least some of those who would not be chosen would be inevitable.
“We were aware there were problems with no matter how we did this and that we were going to get sued by a lot of people,” Shorett said. “We couldn’t do anything about that.”
Shorett also suggested a possible explanation of why the city jumped the gun in giving some applicants licensing late last year without a vote by the city council
“At the same time,” said Shorett, “we were being pushed to speed up the process because people who had applied had gone to the state to get temporary licenses and could not get permanent licenses until they had a license approved by the city, and if they didn’t get the approval right then, they would have to go to the back of the line and that is why we stepped up, to be as business friendly as we could have been. Maybe some of those would have been approved, maybe some would not have been approved by the state. I don’t know. I personally, right or wrong, followed entirely what the staff recommendations were, with the exception, as I said, with what came out of our discussion during the night of the special meeting, where all of the applicants had the opportunity to be heard from.”
Reluctantly, Shorett was critical of HdL, the firm the city hired to guide it through the granting of licenses to marijuana-related commercial operations in the city. While a representative of HdL was at the meeting on February 21, he sat silent throughout the hearing, and many people were not even aware of his presence.
“They could have done a much better job, as well,” said Shorett. “They were never asked to speak up. They did not make their position known to staff or council. They were never asked and they never said anything, one way or the other. I still don’t know what their position was or is. That was perhaps a failure on our part.”
Valdivia sought to distance himself from the the selection process, indicating neither he nor the council had a role in reviewing or rating the applicants. He said charges of graft hovering over the process were “baseless accusations” made by “disappointed and unsuccessful applicants.”
Meanwhile, investigators have obtained warrants to place taps on both the office and home phones of virtually every elected official in San Bernardino, some half dozen city staff members, and the more than three dozen entrepreneurs who are seeking commercial licenses relating to cannabis in the city, and are taking advantage of the latitude in the law which allows them to listen in, without warrants, on communications carried out on cellular or mobile devices.

 

Prosecution In Merritt Murder Case Shuns Own Expert Witness On Truck Match

Prosecutors in the McStay family murder trial this week reconsidered the wisdom of utilizing as a witness a respected scientific expert the state had retained at considerable expense after his analysis of the defendant’s vehicle failed to provide a conclusive match with the image of a vehicle caught on a security video near the victims’ home on the same day and at around the same hour investigators believe the brutal murders occurred more than nine years ago.
Instead, they opted to have a sheriff’s sergeant who is the current case agent for the investigation testify that in his non-scientific analysis and opinion there is a rough correspondence in the image of the lower portion of a truck or SUV caught on the video and a sophisticated laser photography rendering of a Chevrolet pick-up truck that was converted into a utility vehicle that Charles “Chase” Merritt owned at the time of the murders.
Placing Merritt at the McStay Home located at 3473 Avocado Vista Lane in Fallbrook on the evening of February 4, 2010 is a crucial element of the highly circumstantial case against Merritt that the prosecution team of Supervising Deputy District Attorney Britt Imes, Supervising Deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty and Deputy District Attorney Melissa Rodriguez are seeking to sell to the jury.
According to the prosecution’s theory of the case, Merritt, through fraud and embezzlement, was pilfering thousands of dollars from his business associate’s company. Merritt manufactured high-end decorative water fountains and artificial waterfalls which Joseph McStay was selling through his company, Earth Inspired Products. Prosecutors have presented evidence which they believe indicates Merritt on February 1, 2010 gained unauthorized access to one of the QuickBooks accounts for Earth Inspired Products and issued himself a check against the company’s account for $2,500 and on the following day, February 2, 2010, again obtained unauthorized access to the Earth Inspired Products account through its QuickBooks accounting system and issued himself another check, one for $2,495.
When he learned learned of what Merritt was up to, either shortly before or perhaps even on February 4, 2010, Joseph McStay traveled to Rancho Cucamonga, where Merritt was then living and confronted him about his larceny, threatening to alert authorities, prosecutors allege. After Joseph McStay returned to San Diego county, the prosecution’s theory continues, Merritt later that afternoon or early that evening drove to the McStay residence in Fallbrook where he killed Joseph McStay, his wife Summer and their two sons, four-year-old Gianni and three-year-old Joseph, Jr.
Merritt then secreted the bodies for two days, in the meantime again fraudulently accessing Joseph McStay’s QuickBooks account for Earth Inspired Products, the prosecution maintains, and on February 4, 2010 issued a check made out to himself for $4,000 and three others on February 5, 2010, each of which was written to himself and backdated to February 4, one for $4,500 and another for $6,505 and a third for $2,350. Shortly after the murders, the prosecution alleges, Merritt embarked on a gambling binge at a number of casinos throughout Southern California. His gaming frenzy was punctuated only by his transporting of the corpses of the McStay family up into San Bernardino County’s High Desert, an area with which Merritt was familiar since having grown up in Hesperia and attended Apple Valley High School for three years in the 1970s, where on February 6, 2010 he buried all four along with the hammer he had used to bludgeon his victims in shallow graves he dug in a wash off a rarely-traveled dirt road. Also on February 8, Merritt again accessed Joseph McStays QuickBooks accounting system for Earth Inspired Products, making another check out to himself, this time for $6,500, backdated to February 4, the prosecution claims. To confuse the situation, throw authorities off his track and delay a serious investigation into the matter, the prosecution maintains Merritt then drove the McStay family’s 1996 Isuzu Trooper, which yet contained the child seats for Gianni and Joseph, to San Ysidro, where he left the vehicle in a shopping center parking lot roughly a quarter of a mile from the Mexican border.
The challenge facing Imes, Daugherty and Rodriguez is there is no single overarching element to the case that bespeaks guilt on Merritt’s part. Rather the case is a wholly circumstantial one, comprised of a series of incriminating factors that are highly elliptical in their nature, requiring that they be strung together in a manner consistently interpreted in the same light in order to color the defendant as guilty. The prosecution has insisted that the tangle of disparate facts, upon being assembled in the precise order as they should be, will put everything into perspective that will permit no other conceivable conclusion than that the defendant, acting out of greed and desperation, massacred Joseph McStay, his wife and the couple’s two children, using a three-pound sledgehammer to bash their skulls in.
At each stage of the prosecution’s presentation of that evidence, Merritt’s defense attorney’s, Raj Maline and James McGee, have sought, and in some measure succeeded, in offering for the jurors a far more benign reckoning of the facts and Merritt’s actions established by the prosecution, while casting doubt with regard to some of the basic premises of the allegations against Merritt altogether, such as the prosecution’s insistence that the defendant was at crucial locations in keeping with the equally crucial timelines in the narrative of guilt the jury must accept to convict Merritt.
One such element of the prosecution’s case is definitively placing Merritt at the McStay family home on the night of February 4, 2010. There is very strong evidence suggesting that the family was murdered that evening. The foremost indicator is that at 8:39 p.m. that night the last phone call placed from Joseph McStay’s cell phone was made. McStay was prolific in his cell phone use, typically making and receiving 40 or more calls daily. The abrupt ceasing of his cell phone use, absolutely unprecedented and entirely out of keeping with his established pattern, is an indisputable anomaly that lends itself to the reasonable conclusion that he was dead within hours, most likely, if not minutes, after that call was made, incidentally, to Merritt’s cell phone. There were no credible sightings of the family thereafter. And the family’s dogs, which were beloved by the family and kept within the house, had been left neglected in the house’s backyard around that time.
Prosecutors had been banking on Dr. Leonid I. Rudin, one of the world’s leading photogrammographers, being able to offer testimony that would leave no doubt that Merritt was at the McStay residence that fateful night. Possessing a master of science degree in mathematics and a PhD. in photography, Rudin is arguably the world’s leading authority on photographic analysis. He holds 31 patents, including ones for a system and method for pattern detection and camera calibration, registration and comparison of three-dimensional objects, a video data compressor with very high data rate, a real-time three-dimensional videoing system, a system and method for determining geo-location(s) in images, a system and method for image and video search, indexing and object classification, registration and comparison of three dimensional objects in facial imaging, video demultiplexing based on meaningful modes extraction, a system and method for three-dimensional estimation based on image data, object recognition based on two dimensional images and three dimensional models, image frame fusion by velocity estimation using region merging and an apparatus for enhancing signals such as images, speech, remotely sensed data, medical, tactile, radar and audio.
Put concisely, Rudin’s skills in using forensic media image processing using the software and techniques he has himself derived, were thought to be capable of determining whether the image of a vehicle captured by a video camera at the home of Jennifer Mitchley, who lived two doors up and across the street from the McStay Home in the 3400 block of Avocado Vista Lane in Fallbrook on the night of February 4, 2010, was or was not that of Merritt’s truck.
After applying his analysis of the video images and a three dimensional image made by San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department scientific analysis division technician Michael Russ using a laser scanner known as a FARO at the direction of San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Sergeant Ryan Smith, Rudin’s determination was inconclusive. On February 5 of this year, during an evidentiary hearing held outside the presence of the jury, Imes asked him what his conclusion was.
“The answer was we could not reject it, but there was some guarded error that we derived,” said Dr. Rudin. “In this case we derived a certain error that I would say if it grew somewhat more I would be skeptical about this hypothesis, but it was sort of right on the border. So I could not reject. It was within the accepted error at the border of that.”
With the image of Merritt’s truck caught by the sheriff’s department’s FARO laser scanner at the same angle as the angle of the Mitchley video camera to the subject vehicle serving as the background of an image projected on the courtroom’s video monitor, a transparency of the Mitchley video was projected across the background during the February 5, 2019 hearing. When the moving vehicle’s image moved into position corresponding to the background image, the video was frozen, with that portion of the truck visible on the video superimposed over the three-dimensional model of the truck.
Rudin said, “I could not eliminate the model as corresponding to the vehicle captured on the video but could not make an identification that it was definitely the truck.”
Rudin further indicated that when his software program and equipment were utilized to take readings of the truck’s wheelbase, he received conflicting results, a discrepancy, he said, of “up to six percent in the worst case scenario and roughly 3 percent in the average scenario. No matter how we used that truck, we were getting plus-minus. So, what concerned me was the larger error, which if it went beyond to seven-eight percent and it was consistent, I would say it is a test fail, but at this point I would say no test fail.”
A precise determination of the truck’s wheelbase is critical to the case, in that two sets of tracks were found at the site of the McStay family graves, one with a wheel base measuring 73 inches, which roughly, according to prosecutors, matched the wheelbase of Merritt’s truck. The other set of tracks at the gravesite measured 76 inches across.
On February 5, 2019, Judge Michael A. Smith, over the defense’s objection, ruled that Rudin could testify. He was scheduled to do so on February 19, but that date came and went and he never appeared as a witness. With the prosecution’s side of the case winding down, he had not appeared. This week, on Monday March 4, the prosecution instead elected to have Sergeant Ryan Smith testify with regard to his non-scientific observations and the conclusion he had personally reached that the image on the Mitchley video is a match to the Chevrolet work truck Merritt was driving in 2010. Smith, who as the case officer on the McStay family homicides and the sheriff’s department liaison with the district attorney’s office on the matter, has testified a half dozen times previously in the case. Before the jury was called in to hear from him on Monday, the prosecution and defense attorneys debated before Judge Smith the propriety of allowing Sergeant Smith, who is no blood relation to the judge, to testify. For that purpose, Smith was called to the witness stand to make statements under oath, despite the jury not being in the room.
Sergeant Smith testified that he had used the FARO scanner in accident reconstructions to make precise photographic records of vehicles before he became a homicide investigator, and that since coming into the homicide division he has used it in investigating murders and officer involved shootings.
He said he had overseen a FARO scan of Merritt’s truck in 2014 and had done a second one on February 18 and 19 of this year. He testified he conducted those scans with the lights both on and off.
Attempting to establish that the sergeant lacked the expertise to do the analysis he was being called upon to perform which would have been better carried out by someone with Rudin’s level of expertise, Merritt’s defense co-counsel, James McGee, asked him, “How does the FARO scan the lumens intensity of the light that is being captured?”
“Objection, relevance,” protested Imes.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith
“That would be a technical question for someone who knows how to service and process those,” said Smith. “My experience with FARO is how to operate it, how to make sure it’s in working order, how to process the scans after they’re done. So, I don’t know the intricacies of the specifications.”
“You can’t testify foundationally how the FARO records or processes data on the lumen intensity of any light being captured?” McGee pressed.
“No, sir, I couldn’t testify to that,” said Smith.
“You’re honor it would be the defense’s position this witness does not have the necessary knowledge to lay the foundation to be a true and accurate foundation of the FARO images since he cannot testify as to the lumens issue as to the intensity of light as demonstrated on the FARO screen,” said McGee.
McGee pointed out that Michael Russ, the sheriff’s evidence technician who had carried out the FARO scanning of Merritt’s truck at Sergeant Smith’s direction, had specific and in-depth training with regard to the use of the laser scanner. Russ, McGee said, had previously testified that “one of the difficulties of FARO scans are when they are detecting things that are reflective, which would be headlights because the laser does not bounce off those well and capture that image very well. And so that becomes a major issue. A major contention in this case, and the court has heard us say it, is ‘This can’t be our client’s vehicle because you have to have those parking lights, the running lights, going when the headlights are on. They’re not shown in the video. If they get to show a FARO scan next to it without those parking lights as illuminated as brightly as they would be with the headlights [on], that’s a misrepresentation of the facts and a misrepresentation of my client’s vehicle. So, they’re trying to pull the wool over the jury’s eyes to say we have this issue, so let’s just eliminate that issue by presenting photographs that don’t accurately represent the state of my client’s vehicle as it would be shown in that video.”
Judge Smith, however, told McGee, “I think there is sufficient foundation to allow that testimony and those exhibits.” He ruled that Sergeant Smith could present the Faro scans of Merritt’s truck in comparison to stills taken from Mitchley’s security video and that the defense could make an issue of Sergeant Smith’s scientific credential as it saw fit so the jury could put his impressions in perspective, and the jury could determine “the weight to be given” to the sergeant’s testimony on the issue.
With the jury present and led by Imes’ questioning, the sergeant testified that the black and white and grainy images of the Mitchley video stills, which capture the street below the vehicle as well the bottom and middle of vehicle but not the topmost part, as the vehicle appeared to turn into what is calculated to be the McStay family home’s driveway at 7:47 p.m. on Feb. 4, 2010, show a vehicle which appears consistent with the Merritt’s truck. In illustrating that consistency for the jury, Imes displayed the FARO scans of the truck and the stills from the video on the courtroom’s visual monitors. Some of what were displayed were side by side comparisons Sergeant Smth had prepared to accompany his testimony. He testified that there was similarity with regard to the front of the images of the vehicle[s] as well as a close similarity with regard to the back of the vehicle[s], including the exhaust pipe.
Sergeant Smith testified that he merely shot the images of the truck using the FARO scan to capture it from different angles, having made an effort with just one of the depictions to mimic the angle of the Mitchley video camera to the truck. He testified that he saw similarities with regard to the way the brake lights illuminated the ground below the vehicle in both the FARO scan and the video.
McGee cross examined the sergeant.
Comparing the illustration prepared for the jury containing the FARO image side-by-side with the still from the Mitchley video intended to show the similarity between the tailpipes, McGee confronted Smith about a light visible on the side and near the rear of the vehicle in the image captured on the Mitchley video that was not present on the FARO scan of Merritt’s truck. That lighted area appeared to be positioned on the side of the vehicle on a tangent almost directly above the end of the tailpipe. When Smith suggested the light was a “reflection,” McGee said, “It’s a reflection. Is that not the same light that goes all the way through when the vehicle drives?”
“Objection, misstates his testimony and assumes facts not in evidence,” interrupted Imes.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith.
“No, sir, if you watch the video, you will see it dim and change,” said Sergeant Smith. “However, you can notice it in multiple frames.”
“And what is the lighting source for that reflection?” asked McGee.
“Well it could be – this is speculation on my part…” Sergeant Smith began.
McGee stopped him short. “Do you know?” he asked.
“I believe it to be the brake lights or the Mitchley porch light,” said Sergeant Smith.
“So the Mitchley porch light is shooting that direction and hitting an object that is facing away from it and the reflection is coming right back at you?” McGee pressed.
“Objection, assumes facts not in evidence,” said Imes.
“Overruled,” said Judge Smith. “He can answer.”
Sergeant Smith asked for the question to be repeated.
“You’re saying that something on that truck had a light coming from the Mitchley residence, when it pulled out of the [McStay home] driveway once that item became visible below the roof of her porch, that it traced and came all the way across that video reflecting back when it’s not perpendicular to that item?” McGee restated the question in a somewhat different and more turgid form.
“Objection, argumentative as phrased and calls for speculation,” said Imes.
“That question does call for speculation and conclusion, so the objection is sustained,” said Judge Smith.
There followed an effort by McGee, using the FARO scan that best approximated the angle of the still frame of the vehicle image isolated out of the Mitchley video to make a showing that the light seen emanating from near the back of the vehicle did not match any potential source of light or reflection on Merritt’s truck depicted in the FARO scan.
“Isn’t it true that the exhaust [pipe] on the angle you tried to represent is below that seam for that back cabinet?” McGee asked.
“From that angle, yes it is sir,” said Sergeant Smith.
“And so, based on the other highlight that you did in the Mitchley video, the exhaust pipe is either right below or to the left of whatever that reflecting item is,” said McGee. “That does not match up to the truck here, correct?”
“I think you’re misrepresenting a little bit, so I would clarify that this is from an angle from the front, off and away,” said the sergeant. “But as I told you guys initially, I don’t have the ability to place the FARO scan where the Mitchley camera is.”
Sergeant Smith said he thought the source of the reflection might have been the latch to the storage cabinet on the truck body.
Smith acknowledged that the truck, including its cabinet and cabinet latch, which had since 2010 been painted white, was a gray color in 2010.
“The latch -” McGee began, “What color was it in 2010?”
“I don’t know,” said Sergeant Smith.
“That latch – You said in 2019 you scraped off the paint?” asked McGee
“I didn’t scrape off all the paint, but, yes, I scraped to see what was underneath.” said Sergeant Smith.
“And it wasn’t chrome?” asked McGee.
“It is not chrome, no” said Sergeant Smith.
“It’s just flat metal?” asked McGee.
“Yes,” said Smith.
“Do you know what color the rear portion of that vehicle was painted in 2010?” asked McGee.
“It was gray,” said Sergeant Smith.
Sergeant Smith acknowledged there was no reflection apparent off the rear of the truck in a photo taken in 2010.
McGee then displayed on the courtroom’s visual monitors the side by side comparisons of the FARO scan and the still from the Mitchley video, noting that the end of the tailpipe appeared to be significantly to the right of the vertical axis upon which the latch in the FARO scan was located while the point of illumination or reflection on the video still appeared to be directly over the end of the tailpipe.
Smith testified that there was a different housing for the brake lights on the truck in 2010 than was on the truck in 2019.
McGee asked, “Did the FARO scan reproduce the lumens rate contained in the video?”
Smith said, “I am not technically savvy enough to know the lumen rates for the FARO as they relate to the car. I can tell you it’s an accurate depiction of the vehicle with the lights on as I saw it.”
“But you don’t know if the intensity of the light is consistent or accurate with an identical presentation,” McGee pressed him.
“I don’t know what you mean as far as identical presentation,” responded Smith.
“Based on how this truck is being presented, McGee began, “you don’t know if the brightness of the lights is perfectly accurate?”
“The best I can tell you is they are accurate as I saw them,” said Smith. “There may be some technical aspects I am not familiar with.”
McGee then moved onto another discrepancy between the images. Merritt’s truck has both running lights and headlights, which are distinct from one another, with the much thinner but slightly wider running lights on the front of the truck beneath the headlights and separate from them. When the headlights on Merritt’s truck are on, the running lights come on automatically and cannot be turned off as long as the headlights are engaged. The vehicle depicted on the Mitchley video does not appear to have running lights. Referencing the FARO scan of the truck, McGee asked Smith if “The edge of the headlight does not go out as far as the parking light?”
“I guess it depends what you are referring to as the headlight,” Sergeant Smith said. “The housing does go as far, but the actual illuminated portion does not.” Sergeant Smith conceded.
“The headlight ends, actually, two-thirds of the way to the end of the parking light, correct?” asked McGee.
“Correct,” Smith said. “The headlight ends at two thirds of the housing of the entire length.”
“So if you were to see the headlights in the Mitchely video, you would expect to see that parking light sticking out a little bit farther from that side, correct?” asked McGee.
“Objection,” said Imes. “Calls for speculation.”
“The objection is sustained because the [question] is assuming something to be true that may or may not be true,” said Judge Smith.
Displaying a still from the Mitchley video, McGee said, “There’s no light coming past the edge of the light for the headlight as you identified would be necessary on the FARO, correct?” asked McGee.
“I didn’t identify it would be necessary,” responded Sergeant Smith. “I do see the parking light, but it is being lost in the illumination of the headlights. It is similar to when you see a car driving down the street and you see their headlights. You won’t see their running lights.”
A last exhibit displayed to the jury was a 47-second video clip from a CNN broadcast which aired at the time of Merritt’s 2014 arrest but contained an interview with him done before to his arrest.
Prior to the video being played for the jury, outside the presence of the jury the defense team had objected to Judge Smith that the excerpt consisted of statements that were taken out of context and which did not provide the jury with the full range of their client’s discussion with CNN.
“The CNN video from my understanding,” said McGee, involved the prosecution requesting on “February 21 of this year [this evidence that] shows a limited clip of what was aired and not the complete footage. For everything to be put in context, there has to be a full disclosure of an interview. The people by their request appear to have intentionally limited their request as to what CNN is supposed to deliver, so they can avoid the rule of completeness. That does not show a fairness in the due process discovery for the truth, to allow this type of playing of a recording where it is safe to assume it has been edited. They didn’t ask for an unedited version.”
McGee continued, “They asked for just the part they wanted, and after that, my understanding is it is our responsibility to get the rest of this video from a news organization outside of this state at the end of trial. The defense is required to work through an issue with another entity trying to get the complete record so we can make sure the jury has a full understanding of the interview at the last second. This is just inappropriate. Also the relevance of his statement… I believe the People want to say, ‘Well, Mr. Merritt said he was the last person to see the victim, so obviously, that’s an admission he killed them.’ Well, that’s not what he actually said on the interview. He said “I’m the last person to see him in Rancho [Cucamonga]. That is not an admission. It is a description of the facts we already have. If they’re trying to put a false spin on that, then that would be a misrepresentation of that fact. They’re attempting to misrepresent facts to the jury, which is a lack of candor. The court should exclude this as more prejudicial than any relevance from the statement.”
Imes retorted, “They’ve had notice of this and they’ve known of the defendant’s statements to CNN since they came on to this case.”
McGee repeated that the prosecution “only requested the aired footage,” and he said that without someone from CNN to validate the footage as being unaltered, there was insufficient foundation to permit it to be used as evidence.
Judge Smith, however, rejected the defense’s request to exclude the video, saying sufficient foundation consisted in the statement CNN had provided in response to the subpoena when it turned over the video.
“They’re entitle to put on evidence of what was aired,” said the judge. “I’m willing to advise the jury this is only what was aired. There may or may not be additional comments that were cut or edited by CNN.”
With the jury present, Judge Smith told its members, “CNN, like any other news organization, when they get a subpoena for information, their policy is to provide only that material that actually aired. So, if there is a two hour interview and they only aired 30 seconds of it, they will only give the 30 seconds they aired. So, we don’t know if this is the entire interview or if there was a longer interview and this is only a portion of that. So you can consider that.”
Thereupon the clip taken out of the CNN broadcast, titled “Buried Secrets,” which aired at the time of Merritt’s November 2011 arrest, was played.
Randy Kaye, a CNN anchor, says, “So you say you cooperated a great deal with the authorities. You were questioned by the detectives. What did they ask you?”
Merrrit, who is wearing a cowboy hat, responds, “The standard questions. You know, just did I know anything about them disappearing. Did I have anything to do with it. Just the standard questions they probably asked everybody.”
“As far as you know, you were the last person or one of the last people to see him, right?” Kaye asks.
“Yeah, yeah,” says Merritt. “When he left Rancho Cucamonga, nobody else– I think somebody, there was another person or two he talked to. I’m not sure.”
“You were the last person who saw him,” Kaye says.
“I’m definitely the last person who saw him,” says Merritt, his reference being to Joseph McStay.
Shortly after the video was played, Imes said, “Pursuant to the discussions of the court, the People at this time will conditionally rest, upon the admission of exhibits and the motion to reopen.”
“So that means this basically concludes the case of the prosecution,” Judge Smith then informed the jury, “with the possible exception we have one additional witness that they might be calling in reopening their case or rebuttal.”
The Sentinel has learned that last potential prosecution witness is Eugene Liscio, a leading authority on three-dimensional forensic reconstruction, and an instructor at the University of Toronto and the president of the International Association of Forensic and Security Metrology. Liscio’s testimony, if it is provided, is intended to replace that of Dr. Rudin, and to shore up Sergeant Smith’s comparison of the FARO scans with the stills from the Mitchley video. He is tentatively scheduled to appear on March 12. Immediately after Liscio’s testimony concludes, the defense is to begin its presentation.
After the jury had departed on Monday afternoon, Judge Smith heard a so-called 1118.1 motion brought by the defense, which asserted that the prosecution had not made a sufficient showing, and the charges against Merritt should be vacated.
McGee said that in response the court should “grant an acquittal and dismiss the case and release our client.”
Imes, however, countered that “There is more than sufficient evidence for the court to deny the motion and allow a jury to make a decision on whether or not the People have proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is the one responsible for the brutal murders of the McStay family.”
Imes propounded, “Not only is there strong circumstantial evidence of motive, there’s strong circumstantial evidence of a means to carry out that crime as well as dispose of the evidence and bury the victims in the gravesite that’s out in the desert, as well as substantial evidence of opportunity to do so, including the burying of the bodies in the desert, the dumping of the Trooper at the border, etcetera, based on the cell phone evidence and the other circumstantial evidence around that, including his DNA in the Trooper, in positions of which would have placed him as the driver, which he denies ever having driven.”
Moreover, Imes said, “The court is aware of the Mitchley video which places the truck with similar characteristics to that of the defendant’s leaving at or about the time or shortly thereafter the McStays really drop off the face of the earth. The cellphone evidence, the tire depression evidence and not to mention moving back around to motive and means, the overriding interest in this case is that every financial transaction that was suspect in this case that was done remotely whether it was done by the defendant or not, but clearly the implication it was, benefited the defendant. All of the suspicious checks were made out to the defendant, several of which, all but one or two of which, he cashed or deposited into his bank accounts. He is the one that benefited from the theft from the victim prior to their disappearance and then after their disappearance. The way the circumstance lay out on February 4, I believe it is clear he had been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and it’s that that leads to the disappearance on the fourth [of February, 2010], when from 5:30-ish p.m. to 9:23 p.m. he is effectively off the cellphone grid and no one can put his whereabouts anywhere, not at his Rancho [Cucamonga] home, not in a casino, but all of a sudden mysteriously popping up north of the victim’s residence in Mira Loma between the 60 and 91 [freeways]. Based on the totality of the circumstances, the People, we believe, carried our burden and there’s sufficient evidence for this jury to reach a verdict one way or the other. We ask the court to deny their motion.”
Judge Smith, remarking “This is certainly a circumstantial evidence case,” said, “I spent a fair amount of time going though the testimony and exhibits to thoroughly examine the evidence presented. The standard the court uses in ruling on a 1118.1 motion to dismiss is the same to an appellate court ruling on a conviction for sufficiency of the evidence and that standard is that the courts consider all of the evidence and all of the inferences, reasonable inferences, that can be drawn from that evidence to determine if there is any substantial evidence of each element of the offense and, obviously, the identity of the perpetrator. If there is any substantial evidence to support a jury’s finding of guilt then the motion to dismiss should be denied. The court has reviewed the evidence in some detail so the court can say if the jury returned a verdict of guilty, is there substantial evidence to support such a finding.”
After a recitation of much of the testimony and evidence presented by the prosecution from the first day of the trial up until that afternoon, Judge Smith asked rhetorically, “If the jury were to accept the prosecution’s evidence and arguments and analysis and conclusions and conclude that is sufficient proof beyond a reasonable doubt and therefore return a verdict of guilty and thereby at least by inference was rejecting the defense evidence, the defense arguments and the defense analysis, would that decision by the jury be supported by substantial evidence? The points I just went though in the court’s view would support such a finding by the jury. So, the court finds that if the jury accepted the prosecution’s evidence, arguments and conclusions, and returned a verdict of guilty that there is substantial evidence to support such a finding. For those reasons the motion to dismiss on Penal Code Section 1118.1 is denied.”
