Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office covering up felonious conduct of its Prosecutors

reay_sean_d_spasdr

 

In August 2018, the Gold Bar Reporter published the below article after public records confirmed that Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is making some very questionable charges to Snohomish County taxpayers P-Cards ( purchase cards) including an air conditioner unit, dinners, household items, payments to court reporters, and is in fact unlawfully using public facilities for his own personal mediation company as outlined below.

MRSC states: 

In short, article 8, section 7 prohibits any local government entity from bestowing a gift or lending money, property, or the entity’s credit to a private party.

 

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay appears to be the exception. See below article as he is running his “for profit mediation company” using county property and resources.

 


On October 16, 2019, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay, who was at the Lake Chelan party in June 2018, that lead to arrest and conviction of one Snohomish County Prosecutor, is now violating Washington State’s Rules of Professional Conduct and the civil rights of a intoxicated female co-worker.

Now, if the below article which clearly documents that Prosecutor Sean Reay is running his own private “or profit mediation company” right from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, and unlawfully using public offices,  isn’t unlawful/illegal/unethical enough, yesterday Snohomish County’s newest public officers Jennifer Sperline confirmed that Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is now claiming to be the personal attorneys for three Prosecutors who unlawfully took and disseminated a nude picture of an intoxicated co-worker while at Lake Chelan in June 2018.

According to our counsel, attorneys who are witnesses cannot serve as an attorney in the matter for which they were a witness to.

Did Mr Reay forget that the woman who the four prosecutors who took a nude picture of is also a county employee?  Conflict, illegal, unlawful use of taxpayer funds to cover up felonies of employees, etc are just some questions to be raised.

But no need to fear for Prosecutor Sean Reay, because he is an outstanding member of the Washington State Bar Association’s Ethics Committee.

Washington State is such a lovely place to raise children.

Misuse of Snohomish County facilities, resources and time

RE_ Arbitration

Not only is Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay being sued for racketeering – threatening to arrest citizens for trying to serve a court issued subpoena, lying on court documents, and trying to get citizens charged with crimes for exposing John E Pennington’s criminal abuse of children and women here in Washington State, now, public records reveal that Sean Reay is operating his own private company, an arbitration firm, misappropriating public funds, and misusing county offices/facilities, and falsifying his county time sheets.

According to County Council members, ” a salaried person is not allowed to hold a second job, nor are they allowed to use county resources for their own personal gain…”

Public records retrieved under RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act) documents that Sean Reay signed a ” oath of office”, but he must have failed English at Norte Dame or simply believes himself to be above the laws of Washington State.

RCW 36.27.020, defines duties of a prosecutor:

(1) Be legal adviser of the legislative authority, giving it his or her written opinion when required by the legislative authority or the chairperson thereof touching any subject which the legislative authority may be called or required to act upon relating to the management of county affairs;
(2) Be legal adviser to all county and precinct officers and school directors in all matters relating to their official business, and when required draw up all instruments of an official nature for the use of said officers;
(3) Appear for and represent the state, county, and all school districts subject to the supervisory control and direction of the attorney general in all criminal and civil proceedings in which the state or the county or any school district in the county may be a party;

(5) Attend and appear before and give advice to the grand jury when cases are presented to it for consideration and draw all indictments when required by the grand jury;

Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.

 


 

Revised Code of Washington are very clear that Sean Reay has one job, Snohomish County Prosecutor. However, public records reveal that he is operating his own private arbitration firm misusing county facilities and while being paid by county taxpayers.

We also discovered he is falsifying Snohomish County time sheets, claiming that he is working for Snohomish County.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is being sued for racketeering, gross 1983 violations (threatening to arrest citizens who engage in First Amendment protected activity).

Falsifying time sheets ( certifying your working as a Prosecutor when you are not), misusing taxpayer facilities for your own personal gain, and misappropriation of public funds for your own personal company, may not be his biggest problem in 2018.


 

 

 


 

Gold Bar’s Mayor fires Kenyon Disend and orders Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack to stop filing SLAPP suits

In March 2019, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem publicly terminated Gold Bar’s law firm http://www.kenyondisend.com and ordered https://www.kbmlawyers.com/and its Attorneys Shannon Ragonesi and Amanda Butler to stop filing and  pursuing SLAPP suits against the Gold Bar Reporter.

A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. Such lawsuits have been made illegal in many jurisdictions on the grounds that they impede freedom of speech.

In late 2017, the Gold Bar Reporter learned from a source that attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler and Ann Marie Soto were frustrated because the Gold Bar Reporter was close to exposing who was really funding litigation against Anne Block, the Gold Bar Reporter, in various lawsuits including Block v. the Washington State Bar Association et al

After public records revealed that Attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Michael Kenyon, and Ann Marie Soto committed racketeering offenses against the Gold Bar Reporter, on September 12, 2018, the below story was published ( noting that the Gold Bar Reporter has never been sued)

Funniest part of this story is both Amanda Butler and Ann Marie Soto have requested admittance to the US Supreme Court in Block v. the Washington State Bar Association et al, this after both were caught via public records filing false declarations with varrious  courts, using Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack’s client and now King County Judge Michael Scott, in attempts to SLAPP down our legal rights to request access to public records and file suit.

We now know from Mayor Bill Clem and public records from Washington State Attorney General’s Office, that Kenyon Disend and Keating Bucklin and McCormack were not representing the City of Gold Bar, but are in fact being paid by Washington State Attorney General’s Office to fight Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block.

Public records confirm that the Washington State Attorney General’s Office has been funding the war against the  Gold Bar Reporter for over 10 years, misappropriating millions of public monies, and after the foregoing true story about Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler and Ann Marie Soto’s felonious conduct of illegally removing and tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center Records (NCIC).

Now it looks like Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack, attorney Amanda Butler, along with the Attorney General’s Office ( working in concert with Association of Washington Cities) is funding the war against Thomas Paulson ( more on this story soon) in Paulson v Mountlake Terrace.

 


 

Snohomish County Prosecutors and attorneys tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center data

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi decided to have a meeting with a federal witness Brandia Tamuu.  Besides the obvious, tampering with a federal witness ( a felony in Washington), both entered into a bribery scheme to remove the witness’s criminal arrest warrant and criminal history from the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) criminal data base.

Public records from the City of Gold Bar, from November 21 to December 20, 2017, document that in November 2017, attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler ( who later learned was also present) Ann Marie Soto were contacted for a meeting by a convicted animal abuser. The woman was desperate for money, had in fact tried extort the Gold Bar Reporter for money/car, and had offered to meet up with Ragonesi and Soto at the Law Firm of Keating Bucklin McCormack Inc in downtown Seattle. Brandia Tammu needed money as she was being threatened with eviction from her home.  In exchange for meeting with Ragonesi and Soto, the woman would get money and her City of Everett arrest warrant and conviction for animal abuse would be cleared.  Tammu claimed to have dirt on the Gold Bar Reporter, but had nothing of value except speculation on why the Gold Bar Reporter moved West, and it was quite apparent from an insider at the law office that the woman is suffering from mental health issues.

According to the woman, Ragonesi and Soto agreed to clear her criminal arrest warrant and conviction from NCIC via ACCESS.

Ragonesi and Soto also told the woman that they could issue secret subpoenas for any document they so desired, and further offered to help the woman get a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports.  One witness said that the woman recorded their meeting, but we have no knowledge of whether this is true or not.

The Washington State Patrol turned over the woman’s criminal history one week before and a week after the Ragonesi and Soto November  2017 bribery  meeting, and it is clear that just days after this meeting, the criminal conviction record and arrest warrant were wiped from NCIC via ACCESS.  The person who cleared the woman’s ACCESS records was Michael Meyers, King County police officer.

The City of Gold Bar, at the bequest of Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi, illegally claimed that the meeting records were exempt from public disclosure. Obviously, a lawsuit forcing disclosure is coming, and Ms. Soto and Ms. Ragonesi will be deposed.

In early 2018, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem agreed to an interview with the Gold Bar Reporter and he said ” those people who are threatening you are now threatening me.”

 

NCIC was created to assist law enforcement track or apprehend persons that may be a danger to society or have outstanding criminal warrants. When a  police officer stops  a person driving or is a suspect,  s/he should know whether the person has a criminal history.  For this reason, ACCESS and NCIC are searched, hopefully alerting the officer a potential danger to them or outstanding court issues of the driver or suspect.  Self protection according to the US Supreme Court.

But here in Washington State, the FBI NCIC database via ACCESS is being tampered with as political favors, bribery schemes, and to enhance criminal sentencing if a defendant is convicted of crime.

Over the past year, we found case after case where mainly prosecutors inside King and Snohomish County government are illegally removing criminal history from the NCIC. Now we have direct evidence that Kenyon Disend’s attorney Ann Marie Soto and Keating Bucklin and McCormack are being paid by Washington State Attorney General’s Office as “Special Assistant Attorney Generals’ (SAAGs).
