Just as a reminder Frank Carson still has a pending case against him with a perjury charge. He is being accused of misrepresenting information on the fair political practices commission form when he ran for district attorney in 2014.

In the preliminary hearing there was an employee of the FPPC who was testifying in regards to that information, and stated that she has never seen a criminal charge filed against anybody resulting from the information on the forms, let alone a felony. It is typically an addendum to the form that is done, and sometimes it may result in a minor fine. But the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office chose to file felony perjury charges against Frank Carson based on that form.

Recently I’ve been hearing rumors about the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office recusing themselves from this case. After a little bit of research and asking a lot of questions, I was able to find out that the Stanislaus County district attorney Birgit Fladager has recused herself and her office stating that there is a conflict of interest.

The Atty. Gen.’s office is now in charge of the prosecution in this case. Unfortunately, if this case does go forward it will still be heard in front of Judge Barbara Zuniga, unless something dramatic happens.

Frank Carson’s next court date is scheduled for February 26, 2020 at 9 AM in Department #2.

Anybody that’s willing and able to go to that hearing please let me know what happens as I am not able to make it. Please provide as much details as possible thanks.

I will keep everyone advised as the information becomes available.

  1. Well written. I can fully grasp the bullshit going on here. If the DA would have recused herself from the bogus murder trial nobody would have been willing to prosecute it because there was no evidence and no case what-so-ever. That’s probably what will happen here. Drop it!

    Judge Zuniga though. She’ll drag out bullshit bogus cases forever obviously. Leaving a snail-trail all over Stanislaus County.
    Good Riddance*

      It has been very profitable for Judge Z.

    2. I very seriously doubt the Attorney General’s office is going to prosecute this case. They will ask another jurisdiction to look at it, and they, too, will refuse to prosecute. This is just a way, imo, for Fladager to bow out without admitting fault.

      The reason there is a conflict of interest is because Fladager is being sued, not because Frank ran against Fladager for DA, Imo. The fact that Fladager brought perjury charges against her opponent is evidence that may be used in the civil suits to prove malice. I really don’t believe Fladager, et.al. were taking the civil liability seriously, until recently. The civil suits are very serious. It is high time the DA and her crew realize it. The DAs office is in a precarious position. The have to settle these lawsuits. They cannot risk going to trial. If they were to go to trial and lose, there would be a judgment, and the State Bar and Attorney General would have to investigate. It is far too risky to allow the civil cases to go to trial. The attorneys could lose their licenses and the investigators could lose their badges.

  2. Ok, not to sound self aggrandizing, but who has been saying for the last 2 years the DA has a conflict of interest? Who I ask you, who? Let me give you a little hint. His initials are the same as mine.
