July 21, 2017 – This commentary will be a rather lengthy because I intend to bring to this commentary some segments of my past commentaries that show dear old Marlissa floundering around like a person in the middle the ocean going down for the third time while trying to out swim a shark. I was able to go to that courtroom for about an hour before I had to leave for a doctor’s appointment. I am going to expound on what I saw in my hour there and utilize the musings of Tom and Marty regarding what happened during the whole day as a basis for some of this commentary.

That being said, before I actually start in reminding you all of the desperate and despicable efforts of Marlissa, a.k.a. the District Attorney’s Office, I am going to tell you a couple of brief things that too may reflect the attitude of a couple of members of the district attorney staff. The following is from an article I wrote on July 6, 2017 and is as follows:

As a sideline to my above commentary I wish to add a personal experience that happened to me. On June 19, 2017 I was in Department 10 for preliminary hearing on one of my cases. During the course of the hearing which lasted two days, Kirk Bunch and Marlissa Ferreira had occasion to come into the courtroom hallway carrying abundance of binders and files for a case apparently that was scheduled to go on.

But, due to the length of the preliminary hearing I was on that was not possible. I was seated in the gallery at the time and when they came in they obviously saw me sitting there as they passed me by to go toward the “well”. After being advised that their case would not be going that day, they turned to walk out and as Kirk walked toward me he gave me a gentleman’s look and a nod which I appreciated considering some of the things I have said about him in my commentaries.

Marlissa on the other hand, walked right past me with her nose stuck up in the air as if to escape the odor of her feet. And I acknowledge that I have said some things about her in my commentaries as I did Kirk but I was not worried about getting charged with a libel or slander because the positive defense for both of those is “TRUTH”. So, any case for slander or libel would be as thin as a slice of ham in a Muslim delicatessen.

My point in mentioning this is that in this brief exchange in court between Kirk and Marlissa and I, I have to hand it to Kirk, he was definitely the bigger man.

Another update, on July 14, 2017 I was sitting in the hallway the courthouse waiting to go in on a case when I saw Marlissa and company walking down the hallway with several binders in their hands. Along with her was Kirk Bunch. Now I’m the only one in the hallway sitting on a bench and considering my voluminous stature, well Stevie Wonder couldn’t miss me sitting there.

As they approached me, Marlissa was her usual self, out in front strutting down the hallway with her nose in the air. Obviously, she does not have time to look to her left, down her nose and acknowledges the peasant (me) sitting there. As Kirk Bunch approached behind her he looked at me and in a friendly manner said “another Friday”. I replied to him “yes it is”. I will repeat now again that even after some of the things I have written about Kirk in my commentaries, he still has the grapefruits to acknowledge an adversary in a respectful manner. I will say again as I did on July 14th, Kirk Bunch is definitely the bigger man. I want to give credit where credit is due.

Okay, let the games begin.

Since I could only be there for approximately an hour I am using excerpts from either Tom or Marty’s articles to elaborate on regarding the district attorney. But during the brief hour I was there, Robert Forkner was presenting his case to the judge. I was sitting in the gallery directly in line behind Marlissa and Kirk.

When Mr. Faulkner would make a point, I could see Marlisa furiously writing on a yellow note pad. And, numerous times during that hour I could see Marlissa and Kirk put their heads together so many times it reminded me of two teenagers sitting in a drive-in movie (if any of you remember those) sneaking smooches instead of watching the movie. But then I realized that she was probably saying “Kirk, what the heck are we gonna do now?” But I appreciated those nostalgia memories of olden times. As I said, at the 3 o’clock break I had to leave to go to a doctor’s appointment.

“At this point of the day, Marlisa has 45 minutes left in the day. She speaks about what Hans Hjertonsson has said, and says that the prosecution has no obligation to provide what he was complaining about. She states that she: “Could be in violation.” Tom.


Could be in violation? Really Marlissa? Really? And I could have weighed 175 pounds if they have never invented buffets so give me a break. Your blatant lying in court which I’m going to republish here certainly makes you in violation of decency, ethics, contempt of court, committing prosecutorial misconduct and should result in disbarment. Okay let’s go back in time:

March 13, 2016 – Now wait a minute, you are not going to tell me that Ferreira lied during this hearing, are you? You better bet your sweet bippy I am as follows: Then we get on to
Ms. Ferreira’s claim that no deals have been made for any of these star prosecution witnesses. Earlier in the hearing a person by the name of Ronald Glenn Cooper Junior was brought from Pleasant Valley State Prison to testify for the prosecution. Again, Ms. Ferreira states that there were no deals made. Well let me insert a comment from one of my earlier commentaries regarding that:

But this morning we had the pleasure of listening to Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth de Jong as she took the stand to defend the DEAL made to potential three striker Ronald Glenn Cooper Junior. She was certainly doing the “Nae Nae” dance in response to the defense attorneys questions why a deal was cut to let Mr. Cooper, a fine broth of a lad by the way, get 4 years on what would have been a three strikes case. After all, all he did was break into a house, apparently steal something, terrorize a female and stick a knife up to her throat and terrorize her. He pled to inflicting corporal punishment on a spouse co-habitant.

Now comes Deputy Public Defender Benjamin Rosenstein who apparently has no problem in telling the truth. He represents both Ronald Cooper Junior and Michael Cooley. And right out of the gate Mr. Rosenstein states that both of his clients are promised leniency in their unrelated cases. THIS MAKES FERREIRA A BALD-FACED PERJURER!!! LIAR IN OTHER WORDS!!!

Immediately after hearing this truth, Dist. Atty. Ferreira immediately begins to attack Mr. Rosenstein saying is only been an attorney since 2012. And that is mainly been in one court and that is no way Mr. Rosenstein could know if all local prosecutors always ask defense attorneys to request continuances Obviously Mr. Rosenstein said something that ruffled the feathers of the Dist. Atty.

It is so refreshing to have a county employee who is not afraid to tell the truth. I commend Mr. Rosenstein for his candor and honesty. I certainly trust that Mr. Rosenstein will not be castigated, criticized, coerced or compromised in any way because of his courage and wanting to set the record straight. We here in Stanislaus County know that there’s a powerful political machine we have to contend with. Thank you, Mr. Rosenstein, for your service to the citizens of Stanislaus County. This young man has more integrity and search for the truth in his little finger then Ferreira has in her whole body. Just saying…

August 8, 2016
Here we get into Cap’n Crunch Bunch committing perjury, whoops I mean being “incorrect “as you will see. 
When asked again by Hans Hjertonsson if he had said that Brian Woody had said that Baljit Athwal was doing security, Bunch admitted that he had said that on the stand. Bunch looked destroyed on the stand at this time. Bunch admits that his testimony was “Incorrect” about Robert Woody, Daljit Atwal, and Baljit Athwal being on the Carson property that night.

Incorrect? When I was a kid, if I broke a window by a bad throw with a baseball and when asked by my dad if I did it, and I said no or I didn’t recall as most of the prosecution’s witnesses seem to say. Then when dad would say well Mrs. Smith saw you do it and I would then say oh, sorry dad, I was “incorrect”. After I had my butt beat, my dad would have said that’s for being incorrect or as we know the real word “LYING”.

So let me get this straight. If I am on the witness stand under oath, and when asked a question and I said no and it was shown that I was lying, I could just say that my answer was incorrect and I wouldn’t face any ramifications for lying on the witness stand. Let me tell you folks, if any of us were on the witness stand and gave false testimony you better believe would be charged with perjury. But not Special Agent Bunch and others. They can try playing games with semantics but the bottom line is, he was lying.

On numerous occasions when Special Agent Bunch was testifying regarding reports he had done or interviews he had videotaped, after he gave his testimony, the defense played the video or the recording and showed that the testimony he gave under oath on the witness stand was vastly different from what actually was said on the recording or on the video.

Oh but wait! He wasn’t lying hoping he would not be discovered, he was merely “incorrect”.

Just remember folks, if anyone of us is on the stand and we lied about an answer, we would not be charged with being incorrect. The prosecutor would charge us with perjury. But then we are just lowly common citizens and not prosecution witnesses or Special Agents or a chief deputy Dist. Atty.

Webster-Merriam: Prevaricate and its synonyms “lie” and “equivocate” all refer to playing fast and loose with the truth. “Lie” is the bluntest of the three. When you accuse someone of lying, you are saying he or
she was intentionally dishonest, no bones about it. Do you get it? Not rocket science.

Oh wait! My bad! There aren’t any criminal charges pending against Michael Cooley, Eula Keyes or Linda Burns for possession of stolen property either. Michael Cooley and Eula Keyes were also arrested for possession of narcotics for sale on February 28, 2014. And of course, this is right in the middle of this very expensive high dollar investigation with the task force and lo and behold guess who as of yet have had no progress in their case? Okay give up, I will tell you. Michael Cooley and Eula Keyes. Since their arrest February 28, 2014 they have had 44 pretrial hearings and the next one is scheduled for April 1, 2016.

Now that happens to be April Fools’ Day. Well guess who gets to be the April’s fool. US! I’ll bet you my granny’s underwear that when they show up on April 1 it will be continued for another pretrial date. But remember they are two more the prosecution star witnesses but there’s no deals being made. Of course, not silly thing. And their free ride of course, has nothing to do with the testimony they are presenting in this case. DUH? Anything wrong with any of these pictures? Just saying…


UPDATE December 14, 2016 – Well I still got my granny’s underwear. A review of the Stanislaus County court index shows that Keyes and Cooley’s have had three more continuances and are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow December 15, 2016. I will bet my granny’s underwear again that they will not go to trial tomorrow but have another continuance. I won’t lose my granny’s underwear and do you know why? Well it’s because the Frank Carson preliminary hearing is not over yet. Ferreira needs these lowlifes to be available if needed for testimony. But now remember, Ferreira says there are no deals and no considerations given to any of the dirt bag witnesses. Think she’s lying again? Yes folks. I do too. Just saying…

January 4, 2017 Robert Forkner: Kirk bunch LIED about certain interviews not being recorded. They were in fact recorded. LIAR LIAR LIAR!!!!! (My emphasis on the LIAR).

UPDATE UPDATE!!! April 19, 2017: Still got my granny’s underwear. Stanislaus County court index shows 41 pretrial conferences with the next one scheduled for October 4, 2017. Obviously everyone is playing grab the Heine to try to keep these dregs of society out of jail so they can appear as two of the star witnesses for the persecution. Now remember, Melissa said in court that there have no deals to elicit the correct testimony from there druggie witnesses. Liar? You decide!

April 27, 2016 as evidenced in the Frank Carson preliminary hearing, receiving timely discovery and exculpatory evidence from the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office is like trying to pull wisdom teeth from the jaws of a Saber Tooth Tiger. Just saying…


… Had the arresting agency or the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office investigators invested even limited resources, they could’ve found this out themselves. But each particular agency wants to try to enhance their statistics on the backs of frequently innocent citizens. Remember, funding comes from
statistics not necessarily justice. (
Especially in Stanislaus County.)

… The above situation is an example of why there are a large number of persons serving time in prison or that have been executed when they were innocent because of the lackadaisical approach Stanislaus County criminal investigators slopping in the “public trough” take.

My comments are backed up by many news reports throughout the United States that reflect that innocent people have been exonerated due to the “Innocent Projects” efforts to correct prosecutorial misconduct and the “Give them a fair trial and hang ’em” attitude of many district attorneys throughout the United States. ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?


July 17, 2016 Jim Cook lie? Of course.

I did a little checking online I located a case that ole Jimmy testified in in Santa Clara County. It was a murder case and I am showing a page from the Palo Alto Times that appeared regarding that case.

Cook, a former AT&T field representative who now trains law-enforcement officials on analyzing wireless devices, presented the jury in Zumot’s murder-arson trial Friday with detailed spreadsheets listing all calls and text messages made and received by Zumot and Schipsi, including ones they exchanged between themselves.

He also produced a series of maps illustrating the coverage areas of the towers the two cell phones used between the evening of Oct. 14 and the evening of Oct. 15.

Cook’s testimony was instantly disputed by Zumot’s attorney Mark Geragos, who produced his own AT&T records and argued that the data Cook relied on doesn’t actually exist. Geragos showed the jury the AT&T report listing the call data from the two phones. For the three phone calls in which the two phones appeared to be traveling together, the fields that normally display data for cell towers were blank.

Geragos blasted Cook’s findings and told him to produce the AT&T report on which he based his conclusions. When Cook couldn’t produce that report, Geragos pointed out repeatedly that the numbers Cook was showing the jurors was an Excel spreadsheet that Cook himself had put together — not raw data from the company.

“There isn’t a single record from AT&T that has this cell-tower data,” Geragos said during his cross-examination.

You must not have been paying attention to the truth that was said today in court. Well, you did but you dont care for the truth. Mr. Cook was caught in a lie! Point blank, that’s the truth. He was asked, ” did you make up these spreadsheets” and his answer was YES. Yes, with the look of shame and embarrassment because he was caught.

You did not like the outcome of today’s BLOW to the da’s fabricated case so now you want to take it out on the reporter, for simply doing his job, reporting what happen.

Remember, the truth will always prevail !

So according to the Palo Alto Times, ole Jimmy seemed to have been caught in a lie in a murder trial in Santa Clara County. Making up his own charts and trying to get those to fly.

September 9, 2016 One of the civilian witnesses who as far as we know doesn’t have a criminal record, doesn’t mind bragging about how important he is. He is, glorified cell phone salesman Jim Cook. He was caught in several lies on the stand. But that doesn’t bother him because he and his not too bright son Chris, has clipped the taxpayers of Stanislaus County well in excess of $250,000. So old Jimmy was laughing all the way to the bank.


Then we have Kirk Bunch. Bunch and his boys testify on the stand to events and interviews which are contradicted when the tapes and videos are played. Recently Bunch was caught in a direct lie which he kissed off when he uses the term “I was INCORRECT”. So this means that if you are a citizen and lie under oath in a court of law, you are committing perjury, a felony. However, if you’re in law enforcement and you lie on the stand, the liar can say I was incorrect.


Some of the defense witnesses that are being called are incarcerated in state prisons around the state. I find it laughable that Ferreira cannot attack their credibility because of their record. We know that she has used felons and soon to be felons in and out of prison as her star witnesses. Reality bites Ms. Ferreira. KAPOW!

April 14, 2016 This morning in court Frank Navarro believed to be a Turlock police officer, resumed the stand for a few questions. He was asked if the fact that Frank Carson had called Mr. Navarro a liar and a perjurer and had filed complaints against him would it in anyway give Mr. Navarro and incentive to go after and try to ruin Frank Carson’s reputation? Mr. Navarro stated no, that he was not angry at Frank Carson for doing and saying those things. I think that is very magnanimous of Mr. Navarro and he’s a better man than I am Gunga Din, as Rudyard Kipling so aptly put it.

When I was in active law enforcement, if an attorney had called me a liar and a perjurer thus impugning my integrity and my reputation for honesty, I would have filed a complaint with the California State Bar against the attorney. I think that would be egregious mis-conduct on the part of an attorney to attack a law enforcement officer unjustly. But of course, the affirmative positive defense to libel and slander is TRUTH. Just saying…



All right, let’s pause here for a moment. I know this is rather lengthy but if any of you saw that great Denzel Washington movie “Unstoppable” about the runaway freight train, when I get going showing all the holes, fabrications, prevarications, machinations, plotting, scheming, manipulations and calculating the DAs office is pulling in this persecution and others, SOMETIMES I JUST CAN’T STOP. So, you can finish reading this another day if you can put it down. So, I’m going on.

At this point of the hearing, Marlissa invites the judge to reconsider the statements made by the witnesses. If this was such a stinking unmitigated devil inspired persecution I would be LMBO. But this isn’t funny. What is sidesplitting funny is from Marlissa to ask the judge to reconsider the statements made by her witnesses. Here we have a vast array of people that you would not want within 10 miles of your home who are saying what ever it takes to receive consideration for their cases.

In addition to the examples listed above don’t forget embezzler Sabrina Romero-Reedy got a misdemeanor would no jail time and no restitution order. No deals here. Click HERE to see Romero minuet order

And there is Pelican Bay inmate of the year Patrick Hamilton but by saying what they wanted to hear, he was sent to a more user-friendly prison. No deals here folks. Move on.

Then is Ronald Cooper Junior who had his charges reduced from a serious third strike offense that would have put him away for life to a little domestic abuse after he stuck a knife at his girlfriend’s throat and robbed her. Don’t you think he said what they wanted him to say? Of course he did. No deals here folks.

Then there’s Michael Cooley who based on his violent nature should have been a suspect in the slaying of Korey Kaufman. This because Cooley thought that poor Korey Kaufman was trying to hustle Michael’s girlfriend Eula Keyes. The last time I heard, Korey Kaufman was not blind when he lived in Turlock. There is no way that Cooley would let anybody try to move in on HIS squeeze.

Now in exchange for his testimony, Cooley was promised that he would not have to go to prison if he was ever convicted because he doesn’t like it there and which is unlikely because the DA needs to keep them out before the trial of Frank Carson. No deals here folks. Move on.

Now mind you, Cooley and his squeeze Keyes were charged on February 28, 2014 with three felonies and two misdemeanors.

Case Number: 1471029.

So, their cases have been dragging on for 3 ½ years. Their last pretrial was July 14, 2017 and their next pretrial is October 4, 2017. No deals here folks. Nothing to see.

Robert Woody’s mother commits perjury in her testimony and even admits that she would lie to protect her son which she did, was not charged with perjury.

No deals here folks.

Jungle Jim Cook and his son Cheetah Chris make false representations (LIE) on the witness stand and get paid nearly $400,000 for their undying efforts to say what the district attorney wants them to say. No deals here folks. Keep it moving. Nothing to see here.

April 14, 2016 The final beast that has reared its ugly head has been discussed among the gallery. It is the contention of those people that want to know, there should be a complete accounting of all of the mini-vacations that the Dist. Atty. investigators went on to Hawaii, New York and every other place they traveled to.

Questions: what class did they fly on the airlines? Were their accommodations at the Hilton or a Super 8? What was the daily stipend they were given to eat with? It was reported that when they traveled to Hawaii to interview Walter Wells sister, the interview only lasted two hours. How long did they stay in Hawaii after the two-hour interview? If longer than the next day, why? The interview was prearranged and they knew it would not take very long so inquiring minds want to know how long they stayed after the interview and why.

The same goes for their jaunt to New York City. How long did the interview take, how many days did they stay there and if they didn’t leave the next day, why? I’m sure the taxpayers would like to know why they are funding these mini- vacations. This may be part of the reason why this persecution has cost in the millions of dollars. The prosecution and I might add that County Supervisor DeMartini has said that the district attorney cannot win this case.

When Mme. district attorney went into Judge Zeff’s court to advise that this preliminary hearing was lasting longer than she thought it would and told Judge Zeff that at that moment there appeared to be a “dark cloud “over the Kauffman case. Judge Zeff quickly responded “At the moment or from the very beginning?”

These jaunts kind of figure in with Sheriff Christiansen sending SWAT teams to Jordan to train on how to combat terrorists. That was quite a trip and they managed to stop in Paris on the way home. See more information HERE. I did research the Modesto Bee but I could not come up with one instance in which terrorists took over a 787 Dreamliner at the Modesto International Airport. I probably should’ve looked for a drunk trying to commandeer a Piper Cub. But hey, that’s none of our business we just pay our taxes. Just saying…



“Marlisa tries to say that Robert Forkner knew his client TJ Samra Singh had an outstanding warrant, but insisted on putting him on the stand anyway.”


6-27-16 Then
some months later Jim Demartini has what is purported to be an “interview” with Bunch, believed to be Marlissa Ferreira, Bob Taro and somebody else. This visit by Bunch and Ferreira kind of mirror how they came to a citizen named Samra and jerked him around. Here’s a recap of what happened to him:

I was appalled at the conduct afforded Mr. Samra by the Dist. Atty. staff. I was in law enforcement for 27 years, 19 years here in Stanislaus County and have never seen such underhanded, unethical and lowdown tactics as exhibited by the District Attorney’s Office against Mr. Samra. When you read what they did you need to be very angry with the District Attorney’s Office for their ethics destroying actions and worried that they could do this to you or your family.

There is no question that Investigator Bunch had knowledge of the warrant outstanding for Mr. Samra when they went to his residence and made contact with him. While interviewing him and telling him what he should do when defense attorney Forkner talks to him and then saying” I was never here and this never happened” smacks of egregious misconduct. Both Ferreira and Bunch were there in the effort to intimidate Mr. Samra.

Then in court when Mr. Samra’s testimony was not favorable to the prosecution, suddenly deputy district attorney Ferreira blurts out, “you have a warrant don’t you? “And Mr. Samra is arrested. YOU DON’T GET MUCH MORE LOW LIFE THEN THAT! The judge brought everyone into chambers and admonished the district attorney. How would you like a member of your family to be victimized like this by a top law enforcement officer in Stanislaus County. This is sad, so very sad. So every one of us needs to beware of snakes in the grass disguised as law enforcement personnel. SHAMEFUL!! People like them have lower morals, ethics and concern than a dog in heat!!!

That is how an unscrupulous District Attorney’s Office gets rid of a witness. Now below, behold how an unscrupulous district attorney’s office gets rid of a judge whose decisions they do not like.

September 5, 2016 This information was in the Modesto Bee on March 12, 2014. I will be quoting some excerpts from the article.

The headline is: Update: Stanislaus criminal court judge under prosecutor scrutiny moving to civil court. The article goes on to state that this judge has been disqualified by prosecutors more than 500 times since October. He has been reassigned to civil court. Court officials however, say the move has nothing to do with Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office actions. Even the court officials must think we are sheep by trying to pull the wool over our eyes much like the district attorney thinks.

Then, court executive officer Rebecca Fleming said the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office had nothing to do with his transfer to civil court, and that anyone who says that is uninformed. Rebecca, Rebecca! You must think we are as stupid as you are. Actually we are not uninformed and quite the contrary. And actually, you are not stupid but merely a sock puppet for certain corrupt people in power in Stanislaus County.

Along with we, the uninformed is Judge Ricardo Cordova. Judge Cordova spoke in support of his colleague, telling that Bee that “Freeland is one of the most conscientious judges we have. He does his best to do the right thing. This criticism of him is un warranted”. Be careful Judge Cordova. You could be moving into the “crosshairs”. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!

Defense attorney Frank Carson a candidate for Stanislaus County Dist. Atty. said that Freeland’s transfer is a result of Dist. Atty. Birgit Fladager’s criticism of the judge. Well we know that Frank Carson got into the “crosshairs” of the Dist. Atty. First by opposing her in the election and then, having the audacity to suggest that she was responsible for the transfer of a judge who was respected by his colleagues.

He further had the audacity to soundly defeat her in three high profile cases. And where is Frank Carson now? Sitting in Department 26 fighting for his life as a result of a power-hungry and corrupt district attorney. (Great update: Frank Carson and the rest of the Carson 8 are out of jail) As you saw on page 1 of my commentary, corruption extends far and wide in our judiciary in the United States. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Continuing in the article, BIRGIT FLADAGER said Freeland had upset her prosecutors for too long, so she ordered them to reject him in all new criminal matters which is an attorney’s right to be exercised only when the cases begin. (In other words, Judge Freeland was not intimidated by their imagined authority)

Fully puffing up her ego to gigantic proportions she is quoted by the Bee as saying, “Her offices response to Freelands’s performance might have
played a role in the decision to move him out of criminal court”. (All of you stupid sheep out there who think that she only might have played a role, step forward and be sheared) She also stated, “Seems like a very good solution for all concerned.” In other words,” I finally got that SOB out of my hair”. Now onto the next one who dares to question my authority and power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Defense attorney Frank Carson said, “It has a chilling effect; I don’t know how else to put it, it’s just them being bullies”. Frank Carson said the State Commission on Judicial Performance should investigate the closed-door meetings Fladager had with court officials requesting Freeland’s removal. The problem is that the state agencies couldn’t care less about corruption within local law enforcement agencies.

“Marlisa Ferreira states that the defense has established no prejudice concerning the polygraph examination”.

What a dweeb she is. What polygraph examination Melissa? Oh dear. Did you forget to mention that there was one? You did not forget. Just your typical refusing to discover all information as required by Judges Manukian and Zuniga!!!

August 12, 2016
Then there was a mention by Special Agent Kirk Bunch that there had been no recording made of an alleged polygraph that Robert Woody had been given on April 24, 2014.

Why wasn’t this Brady material disclosed to the defense immediately after the arrests of the defendants? Because it is the policy of the district attorney’s office not to disclose Brady material voluntarily and in a timely manner but only after being caught up with and forced to.

August 22, 2016 Either in response to Mr. Martinez’s questions or by objections from Mme. chief deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira, Jefferson related the following information: Special Agent Brody called Special Agent Jefferson to ask him to do a polygraph exam on a subject for the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office.

As Mr. Martinez began to voir dire Mr. Jefferson, he had asked Mr. Jefferson how many polygraphs he has administered. Mr. Jefferson replied “several “which I thought was quite odd as to why he wasn’t pinned down with the actual number at that time. Jefferson stated that when they got ready for the polygraph there was a problem with one of the cameras and he had to call Brody in to take care of the problem.

Jefferson was asked why he couldn’t find the polygraph results and he stated that it was because his employer changed a program and transferred the information to a second computer and THEN THE DOG ATE THE SECOND COMPUTER. Horror of horrors. Jefferson stated that there was a problem obtaining the video proprietary software and encryption.


…Throughout this morning’s testimony by Mr. Jefferson or should I say Special Agent Jefferson, there were enough “I don’t recall” and “I don’t remembers” to qualify him for employment with the Stanislaus County Dist. Atty.’s investigators staff… :0)

When Special Agent Jefferson testified earlier about the fact that the camera wasn’t working properly before interviewing Woody, Special Agent Jefferson stated that the camera should’ve been working properly and he should’ve checked it. Shoulda, woulda and coulda. We’ve all heard that before. Here!

Special Agent Jefferson was asked by Mr. Martinez where he did his training for polygraph. He stated it was at the Baxter School of Polygraph in Sacramento. And as I mentioned before when he was asked how many polygraphs he had done his answer was “several”.


As I mentioned before, once Special Agent Brody had to leave the courtroom, Special Agent Jefferson became very nervous and fidgety. He’s probably wishing by now that he had never answered Special Agent Brody’s phone call that day back on April 24, 2014. This’ll teach him to leave his phone on silent from now on.

As Mr. Martinez was questioning him about his training at the, well let’s wait just a minute here people. Being the investigator I am, I decided to look up the Huckster, darned spell check I mean the Backster Poly School. Here’s a couple of nuggets from their webpage:

High School or equivalent graduate
18 years old
No misdemeanor convictions involving moral turpitude
No felony convictions involving moral turpitude or other felony convictions within the last 7 years.

So, let’s see now, you can receive a certificate at least from this school, even if you are a convicted felon and it was more than seven years ago. I am aghast at the great reputation this school must have. So if you can walk, have a heartbeat, $5000

in your hand, and if you’re felony conviction is at least seven years and one day old, COME ON DOWN!

A certificate is issued for satisfactory completion of the academic phase of the course.

A final graduation certificate is issued after
successful completion of a field project
consisting of 20 polygraph examinations

This accreditation is not approved by the Board of Education so federal funds are not applicable.

Getting back to the business at hand, Mr. Martinez asked special agent Jefferson if in his training he was told that he is supposed to write a report after each test. Special agent Jefferson replied “Yes”. Special agent Jefferson was then asked did you write a report? Special agent Jefferson answered “No”. Special agent Jefferson was then asked, did you ever write a report? Special agent Jefferson stated “Yes”. Special agent Jefferson was then asked when did you write the report? Special agent Jefferson answered “August 17…………………………………………………………… after much hesitation he stated 2016.

Are you crapping me??????? so in August 2016, Melissa tells dumber to hurry up and write up a report to make it look like you knew what you were doing and we will get to whether or not he knew what he was doing real soon here.

This afternoon Special Agent Jefferson asked had to answer the question of how many polygraphs. It got narrowed down to less than five. Hey guess what folks! Special Agent Jefferson had not completed the necessary 20 polygraph examinations necessary to become certified and receive a certificate. So obviously the Robert Woody polygraph was one of Special Agent Jefferson’s “practice games “so to speak. A warm test up by an unqualified rank amateur.

The professionalism, qualifications, experience and expertise of their expert witnesses are laughable but sad and as un-trustworthy as the DA staff working on the Frank Carson persecution. A bunch of bush league players trying to play in the major leagues.


April 12, 2017 Modesto Bee: A Stanislaus County judge has postponed a trial in the capital murder case that initially was scheduled to start this week for Mark Edward Mesiti, who is accused of sexually abusing and killing his 14-year-old daughter, Alycia Mesiti.

Superior Court Judge Dawna Reeves has postponed the trial before. In January, Reeves postponed Mesiti’s trial because the defendant, who has chosen to act as his own attorney, wasn’t given sufficient access to a writing surface to properly prepare his defense while in jail.

On Tuesday afternoon, the judge was forced to delay the trial again because a prosecution investigator discovered photos collected as evidence that had not been provided to the defense. The prosecution handed over those photos to the defense last month.

Reeves wanted to give the defense time to review those photos and conduct any needed further investigation, so she decided to reschedule the April 10 trial. Now, the trial is scheduled to begin July 10 with jury selection.

The fact that this defendant may possibly face the death penalty or the possibility of never getting out of prison does not negate his rights under Brady versus Maryland to have all discovery provided in a timely manner. His criminal complaint was filed on June 4, 2009.

He and his attorney are now receiving evidence that have not been provided to the defense. Irrespective of the outcome of his case, had he been convicted earlier, it would appear this would be an appealable case costing the taxpayers tens of thousand dollars if not hundreds of thousands of dollars more to adjudicate because of the Dist. Atty.’s failure to provide all the discovery in a case.

Marlis’s response would be what she has said several times, “It wouldn’t make any difference in the outcome of the case or the hearing” such as in the case of the Frank Carson 8. The problem with her statement is that she does not have the title “Your Honorable” before her name. Everyone better pray that she never has that title. She may think she has because during my time in the courtroom I have heard the judge admonish her numerous times regarding her attitude and demeanor.

So here we have “business as usual” at the district attorney’s office when it comes to providing discovery in a timely manner! The Board of Supervisors is keenly aware of the way the office of the district attorney is being administered. But they have their heads in the sand and continue to fund the irregularities, inconsistencies, breaches of ethics, breaches of moral turpitude of a pompous and egotistical Simon (Simona) Legree that is driving away seasoned and veteran deputy district attorneys in record numbers.

2 Peter 2:15,16 15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.


1 Thessalonians 5:21


  But test everything; hold fast what is good.

So much to write, so little time. Rather than just go on and write a mini documentary about the conditions in law enforcement and Stanislaus County, I wish to once again print my disclaimer regarding my feelings so here it is:

As a disclaimer for my commentaries, I wish to go on record as I have in numerous other commentaries that have been posted. I spent 27 years in law enforcement and fully support all legitimate and unbiased law enforcement in our country, state, county and city dedicated men and women who put their lives on the line 24 hours a day to protect us. The four keywords in my commentaries are “legitimate”, “dedicated”, “ethical” and “unbiased”. I totally reject an agenda driven prosecution whose sole purpose is not to find justice, but to decimate the lives, reputations and physical well-being of innocent people.

I wholeheartedly support all of law enforcement who performs their duties in a legitimate, dedicated, ethical and unbiased way. I would estimate that that covers 98 to 99% of our law enforcement communities. I have many friends in law enforcement and know that they all espouse those qualities.

With that being said, I am going to close this and let you all go to bed.

Thank you for reading.
