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:

(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;

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.


 

 

 


 

After Recall approved by WA Judge, Adam Fortney’s supporters start a campaign of harassment and bullying via Facebook

 
Last month a Washington State Superior Court Judge certified a Recall Petition against a corrupt Sheriff here in Snohomish County Washington, Adam Fortney.  Fortney and his friend Art Wallin ( fired by former Sheriff Ty Trenary for excessive force) covered up the murder of a 24 year old Snohomish County resident, Nicholas Peters. 
 
After receiving a video of the murder provided under RCW 42.56, the Gold Bar Reporter began investigating corruption involving several Brady Cops, who Sheriff Adam Forney rehired, Art Wallin and David Fontenot. 
 
So with no surprise ” birds of the same criminal feathers flock together as do pigs and swine” last week, Adam Fortney and his whack job Tea Party supporters started a campaign of harassment, bullying and publishing false statements on Adam Fortney’s Facebook page. 
 

Dave McGlothern, located in Snohomish County, Washington, and owner of BadDog Distillery, posted harassing and defamatory publications on Sheriff Adam Forntey’s Facebook account against Recall Petitioner Lori Shavlik. 

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is dave-mcglotherm.png

First and foremost, Ms. Shavlik was never charged with providing alcohol to a minor, the Sheriff’s filed false statements with the county prosecutor but after learning of the false statements, the county was forced to drop the charges. Secondly, Dave McGlothern published the address of someone else not Ms. Shavlik’s address. Next, Adam Fortney’s friend, a Brady Cop named David Fontenot, did falsify search warrants and police reports which lead to the charge of arson being filed against Ms. Shavlik. This after a smoldering fire started behind her dryer unit at her place of business. Ms. Shavlik was acquitted of all charges after a 12 person jury heard the evidence and learned that Brady Cop David Fontenot had altered pictures from the crime scene. David Fontenot was labeled a Brady Cop in 2002 after he lied on search warrants, tasered a handcuffed man in the back seat of a police car, and stole evidence from the locker room ( an antique gun). 

Next lie Dave McGlothern published is that Ms. Shavlik moved from California to escape criminal charges. Clearly a false statement. Ms. Shavlik moved from California because of employment, and had in fact been in charge of Women’s Shelter in California prior to relocating to Washington State. 

Association of Washington Cities does not employ Ms. Shavlik. Just another false statement.  In fact, Ms. Shavlik filed suit for access to public records after learning that Association of Washington Cities misappropriated hundreds of thousands of dollars paying Special Assisant Attorney Generals and Special Prosecutors at Keating Bucklin and McCormack to defend Sheriff Adam Fortney’s criminal racketeering conduct covering up the  murder of Nick Peters  by Snohomish County’s Brady Copy and friend Art Wallin. 

Shavlik’s home in Monroe did not sell for $600,000, it ordinally sold for around $400,000.00.  

Dave McGlothern’s Facebook harassment sounds like he needs a little more scrutiny with his liquor company. Perhaps the State of Washington’s Liquor Board should investigate Mr. McGlothern’s liquor business BadDog Distillery which sells liquor online.  Not sure how that works? 

Finally, any grown man that calls a forty-nine year old women a “chic” is a male chauvinist pig and just goes to show Snohomish County voters what kind of people Sheriff Fortney attracts and associates with.

Definition: A male chauvinist pig (MCP) who believe that men are superior.   

Is a fifty five year old man who publishes Facebook posts that seem more like an 8th grader worthy of Ms. Shavlik’s time?  Seems to us that Fortney’s supporters are not the sharpest nor the most mature residents of Snohomish County. 

Smells like a defamation lawsuit is coming against Dave McGlothern and his wife.

Sheriff Adam Fortney Recall has started and information can be found on https://recalladamfortney.com/  


On April 22, 2020, Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney issued a “proclamation” that he will not enforce Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order. This after  the Center for Disease Control informed America that a pandemic has erupted because of the corona-virus.

On April 23, 2020, Snohomish County resident Lori Shavlik filed a Recall Petition against Sheriff Adam Fortney.

Ms. Shavlik issued a statement  “This is not about politics, this is about Law and Order. As long as he is wearing the badge and uniform of a County Sheriff, Mr. Fortney has a duty to enforce all the Laws, not just the ones he personally agrees with.”

As our County Prosecutor Adam Cornell has stated ” Mr. Fortney’s conduct is: irresponsible, unhelpful in these difficult times, and contrary to the rule of law,” And that he fears  “that the recent statements of Sheriff Fortney will be interpreted by some citizens around the state to grant license to willfully and blatantly violate the law.”

Recall Petitioner Shavlik  stated ” I concur with these statements of our elected County Prosecutor, and believe that Mr. Fortney should either resign or be recalled.”

Shavlik’s Recall Petition against Sheriff Adam Fortney. asserts that Sheriff Fortney is guilty of dereliction of his official duties as a public officer sworn  in his Oath Of Office to uphold the laws of Washington State. Instead, Sheriff Adam Fortney decided to unilaterally declare Governor Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order as void because he alone held that its “unconstitutional.”

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson agreed with Recall Petitioner Lori Shavlik,  and tweeted “Sheriff Fortney does not get to decide what is constitutional. That is up to the courts.”

April 21, 2020, King 5 News U Tube video, Sheriff of Snohomish County, Adam Fortney, states that he will not enforce the laws of Washington State.

 

RCW 42.20.100

Failure of duty by public officer a misdemeanor.

Whenever any duty is enjoined by law upon any public officer or other person holding any public trust or employment, their willful neglect to perform such duty, except where otherwise specially provided for, shall be a misdemeanor.


Sheriff Adam Fortney is no stranger to those of us who have exposing massive corruption inside Snohomish County government.

In October 2018, Snohomish County Sheriff  Officer Art Wallin, a personal friend to Sheriff Adam Fortney,  murdered an unarmed Snohomish County resident, Nickolas Peters. he was only 24 years of age.

After the murder of Peters, then Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary ordered an independent investigation of the murder of Peters, and the final investigative report found that Deputy Art Wallin’s murder of Peters was not warranted, further found Wallin was guilty of using excessive force. KIRO 7 reports

So what did the newly elected Sheriff Adam Fortney do? Once he was sworn in, he rehired Wallin and further misappropriated thousands of taxpayer money and issued back pay for two years.

Soon thereafter, allegations surfaced that a resident had taken a video of Deputy Wallin’s murder of Peters.  The video taker was questioned by Sheriff Adam Fortney and Detective Shawn Stich, who handed a copy of the video below to both officers, and asked by  Sheriff Adam Fortney to never tell anyone about the video.

Initial police reports signed and submitted into public record by Deputy Wallin, stated falsely, that Nick Peters was trying to evade the police when he shot and killed Peters, and had refused to bring his truck to a stop.

The video contradicts Deputy Wallin’s statements.

The video below shows that Peters was not a threat to any officer, did in fact have his hands up in the air, the truck was idle not evading police as Officer Wallin falsely stated in police reports.

Deputy Wallin fired at least four gunshots at point blank rage, murdering Peters.

 

The above video was obtained by the public records act shows Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney puling the hair of a passenger, who was already in hand cuffs laying on the ground, and slamming her head into the ground


Sheriff Adam Fortney was sworn in 2019 as Snohomish County Sheriff Officer, apparently forgot that lying and violating the civil rights of citizens hardly meets the definition of upholding the laws of Washington and complying with basic min. Constitutional provisions in place since the birth of our nation.

Sheriff Adam Fortney’s latest “disregard for human life” with disobeying the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order is just more evidence of his deviant criminal conduct.

 


Soon after the concealed video was released, Snohomish County Council voted to settle the wrongful death suit filed by the Peters’s family for $1,000,00.00, and the newly elected Sheriff Adam Fortney “rehired”  Art Wallin reinstating him with back pay ( at the county taxpayers’ expense) as a deputy sheriff K-9 handler with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

After viewing the above video obtained under RCW 42.56, several facts are as clear as the skies over Normandy Beaches.  Peters had his hands above his head in plain view of  officers Wallin and Stich, his car was not moving as previously claimed by Wallin, and Deputy Stich jumped on the hood of Peters’s truck just before Wallin fired least two shots at point blank range murdering Peters.

Wallin police incident reports signed and declared to under oath fasely stated that the Peters’s truck was moving. Not sure about our readers, but not only does the video document that Wallin should be added to the Brady List ( as any other dirty lying cop should be), but it’s hard to jump on the hood of a moving truck.

Not sure about our readers, but we’re not sure how a suspect with his hands up in the air, with his car idle and not moving, could pose a physical threat to an officer, especially when that officer jumped on the hood of the suspect’s moving truck.

Let’s call it what the video clearly show it was, it was a murder of a fellow Washingtonian by our lovely Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Deputy Art Wallin.

Nothing new in Snohomish County government where the criminals are running our judiciary, our prosecutors, our public defenders, and our Sheriff Office, and being directed by Association of Washington Cities to hide and destroy public records as “risk management.”

In both these cases, Special Assistant Attorney General, Sara DiVittorio, who managed for Association of Washington Cities and the Washington State Attorney General’s Office of Risk Management ( also known as Department of Enterprise Services), Snohomish County’s Public Disclosure Unit has committed countless felonies against the taxpayers of Washington State by hiding and destroying public records to limit liability. Instead of correcting criminal behavior committed by public officials, like former Director of Emergency Management, John Edward Pennington Jr. who raped, kidnapped, and then tried to murder a 5 year old girl in Cowlitz County, Sara DiVittorio was destroying and hiding public records to limit financial liability to the agencies.

In State of Washington v Keland Guinn

769642 In re the Welfare of AH Amended MAR

Newly elected, and fine Sheriff in blue, Sheriff Adam Fortney, said his predecessor erred when he concluded Deputy Wallin violated policy,  and against the advice of counsel, rehired Wallin. Adam Fortney and Art Wallin attended the Washington State Police Academy together,and have been personal friends ever since.

Does Snohomish County taxpayers really need another murderer on its payroll?

Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney is nothing more than a common criminal and should be Recalled from office before he misappropriates additional public money to cover up the murder of  your son or daughter. ‘

 

We are one another’s brothers and sisters.  Mr. Peters was murdered by Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Art Wallin, and cover up by our Sheriff Adam Fortney.

Is this really the best that the voters can do? Elect a criminal in blue?

 

It’s time to Recall Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney for his crimes against “we the people.”


Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney’s lawyers at  Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack, who helped Snohomish County cover up the murder of Nick Peters caught tampering with National Crime Information Center Data

     Soto    profile-1-20-amanda-g-butler-senior-associate--370 Ragonesi

 

Shannon Ragonesi,                     Ann Marie Soto,              Amanda Butler            


          

Well, well, nothing new for Association of Washington Cities star attorneys who are withholding evidence to limit financial liability to the agency.  According to public records, Shannon Ragonesi and Amanda Butler, at Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack withheld the above video documenting that Sheriff Adam Fortney and Deputy Wallin belong in a federal prison.

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto, Amanda Butler, 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).
