Our readers should note that the Gold Bar Reporter has never been sued for any reason.

However, in 2017, Crystal Danielle Hill Pennington and John Edward Pennington Jr were found guilty of not paying and filing tax returns, sued by the Washington State Attorney General’s Office for not paying their taxes and found liable, WA State v John and Crystal Pennington Case No: 17-2-06169-7; and in late 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter sued Crystal Danielle Hill-Pennington and John Edward Pennington Jr for the tort of forgery and harassment in King County Superior Court Case No: 16-2-26600-2, both were found liable to the Gold Bar Reporter in Block v Penningtons for the  tort of forgery.

In an effort to stop our news investigative reports on the Penningtons crime spree, Crystal Hill Pennington and John Edward Pennington Jr filed for a restraining order  in Penningtons’ v Block Pierce County Superior Court, Case No:  6Z622286A. The Judge dismissed the Penningtons complaint after a 3.5 hour hearing. At this hearing, Crystal Hill Pennington admitted that she plead guilty to bank fraud and John E Pennington didn’t deny he raped, kidnapped and tried to murder a 5 year old little girl in Cowlitz County Washington 1992. A pedophile.

The Judge held that the Gold Bar Reporter was member of the press. All Pierce County District Court proceedings are audio recorded and a copy of the hearing audio will uploaded within a few days.

As always, we contacted the targets of this story for comment and the only response Crystal Hill Pennington sent was a copy of an order from Special Assistant Attorney General and now US Federal Court Judge Ricardo Martinez stating “you can’t file in Western Washington. ” What Ms. Hill Pennington failed to negate is that we have evidence she was misusing computers at Michelle Hamlin Law School to anonymously cyber-stalk the Gold Bar Reporter just like she and her husband did on their foe website titled “The Sky Valley Chronicle” from 2006 to September 2018. In 2018, Ms.  Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) removed the Sky Valley Chronicle from the internet.

On January 5, 2019, a student at Michelle Hamlin ( who apparently experienced the real Crystal, i.e. the nasty, angry, and sociopath lunatic ) wrote to the Gold Bar Reporter explaining that Ms. Hill Pennington was denied entrance into a real Juris Doctorate program because she did not qualify because of low LSAT scores and the fact that she lied about her past criminal convictions, and lied on her applications, but Michelle Hamlin did allow her into their online Juris Doctorate program (JD Hybrid).

Crystal Danielle Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) was convicted of bank fraud in 2000, North Carolina, where she served time in jail for failing to adhere to her criminal plea diversion program, Case No: 01710PERQUIMAN2000CR000235, and Case No: 7102000000234CR (warrant for her arrest for failing to adhere to her probation agreement and order ordering her imprisoned), date March 10, 2000, and then a  few years latter convicted of the same charge ” bank fraud”, here in Snohomish County Washington, is up to her little racketeering scam again, but this time with a small law school, ranked # 192 by US World News ( out of 229 US law schools).

Mitchell Hamline School of Law confirms that Ms. Hill Pennington (Berg) filed a false application five material issues  (1) Hill Pennington lied that she has no past criminal history records. Not true, again, the cases are clear that Ms. Hill Pennington was convicted twice of bank fraud and one time was actually sentenced to jail time; (2) that she had no debt but had defaulted on every loan and mortgage she ever took out; (3) failed to inform the college that she was found liable for tort of forgery and harassment; (4) charged with not filing and paying business tax to Washington State, and (5) Hill Pennington claimed that she obtained a college degree by attending in person classes.

Simply not true. Ms. Hill Pennington never attended a single in person class while obtaining an online diploma from Eastern Oregon University and has a long and lengthy history of bank fraud, forgery and harassment. 

The Mayor of Gold Bar and former council member Jay Prueher said ” Crystal Hill was stealing from the City!”  The WA State Auditor’s Office confirmed that while Crystal Hill was Mayor there was over $200,000.00 of public monies missing from Gold Bar.

Hill Bank Bank Fraud

Hill Bank Bank Fraud 2

Hill Docket Evergreen District Court_Page_1

Hill Docket Evergreen District Court_Page_2

Above Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) criminal history and criminal docket from Snohomish County Washington, documenting that she served probation for bank fraud here in Washington State 


When we learned that Ms. Hill Pennington was up to her same old criminal shenanigans, we contacted Mitchell Hamline School of Law asking if they were American Bar Association approved, and once the Dean of Students confirmed they were, we asked one more question: Then how does a woman with an extensive criminal history, with an elusively online diploma from an non-accredited online school like Eastern Oregon University, obtain entrance into any ABA approved law school?

Mitchell Hamline School of Law declined comment, so this lead to a phone call the American Bar Association (ABA), and when we told them Mitchell Hamline School of Law had in fact accepted Ms. Hill Pennington with her extensive criminal history and false academic credentials, they asked us to submit a “complaint” against Mitchell Hamline School of Law for violations of the ABA guidelines for law school entrance retirements.  Which obviously we did immediately.

But what was even more troubling was the fact that Ms. Hill Pennington posted pictures of other persons on her Instagram account.  According to Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen ” taking a picture  of persons without their consent in Washington is felony.”


In 2009, the Gold Bar Reporter hired a open government attorney to file suit and gain access to public records to answer this question ” why was Karl Majerle given a single cent when the records from the City of Gold Bar was clear that he sabotaged the city’s water system?”

The answer to this question took years of digging through public records, and just last week we finally confirmed these facts:

1: (1) Crystal Hill was in engaged in several extra-marital affairs, including but not limited to, five county employees, Gold Bar’s police chief (2) Executive Aaron Reardon, (3) Senator Steve Hobbs, Sean Reay, and (4) John Edward Pennington.

2:  Karl Majerle knew Crystal Hill had been arrested for and plead guilty to bank fraud, once in 2000, North Carolina where she served time in jail for not complying with her diversion plea agreement, and once in Snohomish County Washington Evergreen District Court, 2005, where she served probation for her fraud.

3:  Crystal Hill was using an alias of Crystal Berg and had been fired for stealing from Community Transit in 2001.  Community Transit never prosecuted Ms. Hill because her mom was a long term employee of Community;

4. Crystal Hill had stolen in excess of $200,000.00 from the City’s water and petty cash funds.

5. Crystal Hill and John E Pennington had illegally transferred $4500.00 of federal emergency housing funds to Crystal Hill in May 2009.  Funds the federal government transfers to the County to help persons being evicted from their homes pay three months of back rent.  Problem for Ms. Hill and Mr Pennington is simple: Crystal Hill was not a renter; her home was in foreclosure and as an owner she was not eligible for federal emergency housing funds, only renters are.

and

6.  In 2008, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington contracted a sexually transmitted disease (STD), disseminated information relating to her STD results inside a public email.  Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers felt it was “private” however since Ms. Hill infected a high ranking Washington State political official with STD, the email was in fact public email in part i.e. who it was sent to and from, the email addresses.


Beavers Bullwinkle

Joe Beavers, Gold Bar’s former Mayor’s behavior captured in Snohomish County Superior Court in 2018 above; soon after taking this picture we learned Mr. Beavers was diagnosed with dementia.

According to Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Joe Beavers, a convicted from felon himself, wrote a letter of recommendation to Mitchell Hamline School of Law on behalf of  Ms. Hill Pennington ( Berg) behalf.

ABA requirements for ABA law school require professors write letters of recommendation not personal friends.  Part of the complaint filed against Ms. Hill Pennington with the ABA against the law school.

Joe Beavers Deposition documents that he a convicted criminal, and is guilty of racketeering and tampered with public records, a felony in Washington State.


For over ten years, Gold Bar has been sued for access to public records. During those ten years, two former Mayors, Joe ” convicted felon” Beavers and Linda ” High as a Kite” Loen, and five attorneys, Michael Kenyon, Margaret King, Ann Marie Soto, Shannon Ragonesi, and Amanda Butler, falsely claimed the City did not have access to.   Then to make matters worse, all five filed false statements in every single court case, and even went on television falsely claiming that the the city was going broke paying the legal bills to block access to Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s public email records (STD results between Hill and a high ranking Senator).

What Gold Bar residents were never told is that the Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, Sara DiVittorio, Miko Tempski, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, and Bob Ferguson, illegally removed Gold Bar public records from the City of Gold Bar and placed a copy at Association of Washington Cities (AWC) and at the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and the State of Washington was funding the entire litigation bill for Gold Bar.

According to former Gold Bar council member Jay Prueher ” Department of Correction’s employee Lonn Turner put something stupid in his emails that if released the city will be sued again… Hill was stealing from the City.”

So when Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Mark Roe decided to covered Mayor Hill’s racketeering crimes as a favor to a Director, John E Pennington ( fired for harassing the Gold Bar Reporter using a fake news website Penningtons controlled), Mr. Pennington was fired and is now headed for bankruptcy.

Now, thanks to Washington Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick, we now know why Mayor Joe Beavers was bragging that he had the fix in with the Courts and even laughed at the Court of Appeals Division One hearing in Block v Gold Bar.  What we didn’t know, but Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe “Felon” Beavers and the Penningtons’ knew was, one of the Justices on both Shavlik v Gold Bar and Block v Gold Bar, was Justice Marlin Applewick, who had declared to be a good friend to John  E Pennington.

The Gold Bar Reporter contacted a Professor from the University of Chicago who was asked ” Can a judge hear and decide cases involving a friend’s wife?”  The Professor said ” absolutely not! If  evidence  of any personal relationship, you need to file a judicial ethics complaint. This judge should be removed for breaching his ethical duties to disclose under Cannon Rules!”

Yes, we do have evidence that every time the City of Gold Bar is sued involving Washington Court of Appeals Division One Marlin Applewick’s good friend John E. Pennington’s wife, and to gain access into former Gold Bar Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s email communication, John Pennington’s good friend and Washington State Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick appears on these cases and violates well settled case law under RCW 42.56 to stop anyone from deposing his good friend John Pennington’s wife.

http://lawfilesext.leg.wa.gov/law/Journals/1999/hj%2099%20001.htm

In 1999, while serving in an uncontested Cowlitz County seat, Marlin Applewick and Mill Creek Rep. John Lovick ( who last year was caught masturbating beside the bed of his daughter’s best friend when she was 12 years old) made this former statement while in the legislature:

 

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH BY SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE PENNINGTON

Representative Pennington: “Thank you, Representative Alexander for your kind remarks. I would like to introduce my wife and best friend, Valerie and my Mother-in-Law, Ruth Fox. Judge Appelwick Over the past two years in this position, I have had three wonderful teachers. One is my friend Speaker Clyde Ballard. Another, the gentleman I will soon nominate for the office of Chief Clerk, Mr. Tim Martin, and the third is my former colleague and friend, Judge Marlin Appelwick. What an honor to be sworn in by him.


 

In 1999, Marlin Applewick, a good friend Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s husband, commits egregious Cannon violations against Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block, and activist/journalist Lori Shavlik when he hid the fact that he was a good friend to John E Pennington.  Cannon Rules mandate when a judge has a personal relationship with anyone inside a cases for which he is assigned, he must disqualify/recuse himself from the case.

Marlin Applewick not only failed disclose that he was a good friend to John E Pennington, he issued orders on two public records cases involving his good friend John E Pennington’s wife’s email communication here in Gold Bar.


 

For my readers, ask yourself one question: Should a judge ever hear and decide a case involving his good friend’s wife?

Update, January 2020, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem fired Ann Marie Soto ( as well as Kenyon Disend) and Shannon Ragonesi ( KBM Lawyers)


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

Soto        Ragonesi

 Ann Marie Soto                                          Shannon Ragonesi 

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, Shannon Ragonesi and 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.

Here’s just three cases that illustrate quite nicely three Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe,  Wallace Langbehn III and Sean Reay’s criminal racketeering acts exposed in public NCIC records.

Sno County Prosecutor Sean Reay, removing criminal history records from NCIC as political favors


In 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor, Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) attempted to have the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime for exposing her crimes against the City of Gold Bar taxpayers ( theft in excess of $200,000.00). Ms. Hill Berg was sleeping with several married men inside Snohomish County government, including but not limited to Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.

Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and John E Pennington were stealing from Snohomish County Emergency Management and the County’s Emergency Housing Funds.  Federal money distributed to the local government via a welfare block grant.

On July 5, 2008, Gold Bar’s water employee Karl Majerle was caught red handed stealing from the City of Gold Bar, and had in fact sabotaged the City’s Wells, # 3 and 4. Why, because Ms. Hill (Berg) was informed by Gold Bar council member Dorothy Croshaw that Majerle was stealing from the City.  After Karl Majerle was caught stealing, he was fired, which he recorded via audio means, and then out of anger, he left City Hall and poured gravel down Gold Bar’s City wells # 3 and 4.  Instead of reporting the federal crimes, as acts of domestic terrorism to Gold Bar’s water system, Ms. Hill (Berg) decided the best way to handle this was to ask Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay for a favor i.e. help quash criminal charges against Majerle.

And Sean Reay did  it.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay received the criminal referral from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Terry Handleman and Deputy Jeff Ross ( Brady Cops). Sean Reay received a phone call from Snohomish County Director John E Pennington and Executive Aaron Reardon asking for his help in quashing the criminal charges as “political courtesy.”  Sean Reay called then Sheriff and both made an agreement to not prosecute Karl Majerle for sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.

Sean Reay, in an effort to make it look good, sent the Karl Majerle’s criminal complaint to his wife, Laura Twindale. Ms. Twinsdale is in charge of Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division.

Sean Reay never referred the case to the federal government as all crimes against water systems must be referred to the DOJ and FBI for investigation and/or prosecution. But instead, Sean Reay sent the criminal complaint against Gold Bar’s water employee to his wife, Laura Twinsdale. Ms. Twinsdale is only in charge of misdemeanor offenses and has no authority  to issue felony charges nor prosecute federal crimes.

We later learned that Karl Majerle and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) had entered into a bribery scheme. Why, because Karl Majerle knew what we didn’t know for five years until Snohomish County finally released a record it illegally withheld for almost 7 years now.

Simply put, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is guilty of racketeering, quashing criminal charges as political favors.  Perhaps Mr. Reay thought he and Aaron Reardon were going to the Governor’s Manson.  So sad, but along came the Gold Bar Reporter, and Aaron Reardon was ousted for stealing public monies.

As a political favor, Sean Reay helped Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal conviction and arrest records from NCIC.

Not only did Prosecutor Sean Reay assist Ms. Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal history from NCIC, he also entered into a bribery scheme with Ms. Hill Pennington (nee Berg),  to quash criminal charges after she violently assaulted a six year old child.

 

Our readers, and those Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) stole from ( City of Gold Bar taxpayers) should be happy to know that she is now frauding the federal taxpayers working as a contractor at FEMA in Emittsburg Maryland.   According to the Office of Inspector General, persons convicted of fraud are not eligible for federal employment or federal contracts of any nature.

FEMA’s Brock Long was made aware of Crystal Hill Pennington’s criminal history and has refused comment.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III, putting false criminal history records inside NCIC.  Why?  To enhance criminal sentencing if the accused is found guilty. We also have ample evidence to also document that Wallace Langbehn also falsely placed criminal history inside NCIC to retaliate against persons who exposed Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (C).

The Gold Bar Reporter was the first to expose Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (c) with its sole purpose used by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Prosecutors Office for purposes of domestic spying and siphoning over $27 Million dollars of Washington State and federal taxpayer monies.

Dawson Place uses the law firm of Anderson Hunter to funnel millions of public money just as G. Geoffrey Gibbs did with attorney Lin O’Dell inside the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam known as Whispering Pines. The scam that involved Dean Bellamy, a man murdered by Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Bellamy was threatening to expose many Judges and Commissioners involved in the guardian scam with attorneys Joseph Nappi Jr, Lin O’Dell and James Spargetis in Spokane.


Click below to how Dawson Place is nothing more than a shrill set up by Snohomish County Judges, Prosecutors and attorneys siphoning off million of public dollars.

For those of my readers who have been following the County’s malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, it’s  no  surprise that Dawson Place’s Prosecutor  Wallace Langbehn III was working inside Dawson Place when Snohomish County activist Lori Shavlik started piecing together the County Judges/Prosecutors/Attorneys sick little domestic spy ring also known now as Dawson Place.

Bigger question still remains unanswered: Where did the millions of public monies go?

 

In 2010, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell knew Lori Shavlik was getting close to exposing Dawson Place as a shrill to funnel public monies and spy on citizens.  Mark Roe and Adam Cornell needed to shut Ms. Shavlik up as she was starting to unravel Dawson Place as a shadow agency owned and operated by Snohomish County government.

Mark Roe and Adam Cornell decided the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to enlist the assistance of a known Brady Cop named David Fontenot. David Fontenot’s job was to find someone close to Ms. Shavlik to start a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Fontenot is as dirty as them, and had known all of the drug addicts, and one such drug addict Fontenot found worked inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Rebecca Bradshaw was well know to David Fontenot, because Ms. Bradshaw was a drug informant on Snohomish County’s payroll.

While at the same time Rebecca Bradshaw is on Snohomish County’s payroll, Ms Bradshaw was working in and stealing from Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon in the City of Snohomish.   Brady Cop David Fontenot knew this, and enlisted Ms. Bradshaw assistance in starting a fire behind a dryer unitinside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon.

The false trumped up criminal charges Snohomish County set into action came only after Ms. Shavlik had exposed Dawson Place for fraud, and a government shrill to steal taxpayer monies without accountability.

In 2014,  Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, known racketeering member, Franchasca Yahyavi tried Ms. Shavlik for first degree arson. Ms. Yahyavi, never disclosed that the lead detective  David Fontenot was a Brady Cop, and that the County’s main witness Rebecca Bradshaw was a paid informant.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik one juror was a highly educated Engineer who later said ” this was bullshit. There was nothing here.” Those of you who know me, know I am partial to engineers not only because my engineer is my most loved treasure, but because persons that are trained in hard sciences are critical thinkers who analysis even small pieces of evidence.

That Engineer saved Ms. Shavlik’s life by holding out for days until the Judge called it a deadlock jury.  Instead of the Prosecutors’ leaving well enough alone, Francesca Yadavvi recharged Ms. Shavlik in a second trial in February 2016.

The Gold Bar Reporter was in the audience watching as Brady Cop David Fontenot and Prosecutor Yahyavi paraded witness after witness on the stand to attest about what a bad business owner Ms. Shavlik was.  One witness named Dolly even told the jury that she was told by the Prosecutors that she would get money for her testimony.

In March 2016, 12 jurors acquitted Lori Shavlik of arson.

Early this year, Ms. Shavlik  started complaining that her insurance rates were over the roof. This prompted this question: have you looked at your criminal access searches and driving record from Washington State ?

When Lori Shavlik retrieved her driving record from the Washington State Department of Licensing she learned that Dawson Place Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III had entered false information into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, falsely claiming that she had plead guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

In a nutshell, Wallace Langbehn III entered into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, via NCIC, that Ms. Shavlik had plead guilty to giving alcohol to minors. False.

Wallace Langbehn III falsely entered a conviction record into Ms. Shavlik’s NCIC records and he did so while assigned to Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit 501 (3) (c). A shrill money laundering company to further the efforts of Dawson Place and its racketeering members. Mainly Snohomish County Prosecutors and Judges and two  mobsters and attorneys G. Geoffrey Gibbs and Michael Kenyon.

Does this fit the definition of racketeering crimes?

Sourcehttps://www.cga.ct.gov/2006/rpt/2006-R-0484.htm

 

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (18 USC §§ 1961-1968) prohibits (1) acquiring, establishing, or operating an enterprise with illegally derived income, (2) acquiring or maintaining an interest in or control of an enterprise through illegal activity, and (3) using an enterprise to commit illegal acts (Extortion, Blackmail, Etc., 31A Am Jur 2d).

RICO defines “racketeering activity” as a long list of state and federal crimes. The federal crimes include bribery, various fraud offenses, gambling offenses, money laundering, a number of financial and economic crimes, obstructing justice or a criminal investigation, murder for hire, and sexual exploitation of children. The state crimes include murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, and drug crimes.

It defines a “pattern of racketeering activity” as at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after RICO became law and the last of which occurred within 10 years after the prior act.

“racketeering activity” means committing, attempting to commit, conspiring to commit, or intentionally aiding, soliciting, coercing, or intimidating another person to commit a specified list of felonies. These felonies include gambling activities, extortion, drug offenses, weapons offenses, murder, assault, prostitution, hazardous waste violations, securities violations, coercion, money laundering, arson, bribery, and forgery

“Pattern of racketeering activity” means engaging in at least two incidents of racketeering activity that (1) have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission or otherwise are interrelated by distinguished characteristics; (2) are not isolated incidents; (3) include at least one incident that occurred after October 1, 1982; and (4) occurred within five years of a prior incident of racketeering activity (CGS § 53-394(e)).

“Collusion” is not defined in either RICO, although the word “collusion” is used in a number of state contracting statutes. The Black‘s Law Dictionary definition of “collusion” includes a “secret combination, conspiracy, or concert of action between two or more persons for fraudulent or deceitful purpose.” This type of conduct would appear to be covered by RICO


 

Wallace Langbehn III, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Mike Kenyon, Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, and Snohomish County Judges were contacted and all declined comment.

Snohomish County government making Adolf Hitler proud

The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless. 

-John McCain 

 

” We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ” Plato

Two such judicial officers right here in Snohomish County Washington are Judge Janice Ellis and Judge George Appel.  Adolf Hitler would quite proud on how our American judicial system has progressed in favor of the state.

 

A few weeks ago, the Gold Bar Reporter broke the story of a so called 501 (3)  ( c) titled  http://dawsonplace.org/.

“Dawson Place was the best kept secret” Mark Roe attested to under oath in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place.  What disgraced ( and recently resigned) former Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe was referring to was a shadow government agency titled Dawson Place. This allows the County to cherry pick which cases to prosecute or which cases to sweep under the rug when Dawson Place is a participant in criminal complaints.

The true purpose of setting up Dawson Place as a non-profit is two fold.

First, there’s no doubt that Dawson Place is being used to set up defendants. Imagine this: Dawson Place, an alleged 501 (3) (  c)   has Prosecutors inside, has law enforcement inside, and a store front political appointee of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s childhood friend Lori Vanderburg.

Here’s how Dawson Place works. Snohomish County government refers all rape and sexually abuse allegations to Dawson Place. An alleged non-profit. At Dawson Place an alleged victim fills out an intake form.  The intake form is sent to the Prosecutors, Sheriff’s department, and to Dawson Place’s political director ( and childhood friend of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe).

Compass Health performs medical evaluations on the alleged victims, most of the time. However, to get to the medical evaluation, first a interview is set up by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.  The interview is recorded by video means.

By claiming that Dawson Place is a non-profit group, the video is withheld under RCW 42.56 claiming that its not a public record.  Participants of this interview includes Snohomish County prosecutors and sheriff’s officers inside Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit group.

But if this doesn’t strike readers as being a gross deprivation of due process rights of the accused, here’s a few more facts about how the Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers are fixing the entire case against those accused of child abuse and rape.

Other participants in violating the rights of the accused, Compass Health,  Victim Support Services and Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.  

Compass Health is simply a store front shrill so Snohomish County Prosecutors can fix cases against the accused.  Compass Health makes decisions about whether someone is competent to stand trial and whether or not a victim at Dawson Place has or has not been violated by the accused.

When a defendant is charged with molesting or rape of a child, Compass Health performs the mental health evaluation for Snohomish County Judiciary. The mental health evaluation is then sent to the trial judge for determination on whether a defendant is competent to stand trial.

We could find not one single case in which Compass Health did not state that a defendant was competent to stand trial when the case referral came from Dawson Place.

So imagine this. You are a defendant charged with the hideous crime of raping or molesting a child.  First point of order, Judge Appel or Judge Ellis are mainly assigned to as the trial judge in your case. They refer you over to Compass Health to obtain a mental health evaluation.  Compass Health is also in charge of collecting evidence on whether the victim who is alleging you either molested or raped them can move forward for physical evidence ( often sperm).

Second, this allows Snohomish County Prosecutors to fix all cases at all levels. And it only gets worse.

Imagine the Judge assigned to adjudicate your case never discloses to you that she or he also worked at Dawson Place and had helped start Dawson Place, this so called 501 (3) ( c).

If this inst bad enough, hold onto your seats.  After Dawson Place’s Board ( which includes Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff) holds meetings and votes on whether to prosecute your case, it’s assigned often to a public defender.

Snohomish County Public Defenders Association’s Director/attorney and partner Vicki Norris is from the law firm of Anderson Hunter. Ms. Norris is married to a former partner from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter, Robert Leach. Mr. Leach  received a political appointment to Washington Court of Appeals Div. One. .

Robert Leach’s political appointment was made by Governor Christine Gregoire. Robert Leach’s gift to Ms. Gregoire included a deferral of a valid Bar complaint filed against Ms. Christine Gregoire. The Bar complaint was filed by attorney/.activist John Scannell. Allegations were that Gregoire missed a filing deadline costing the taxpayers of Washington State over $25,000,000.00 while she was the Attorney General of Washington State.

Vicki Norris, Judge Robert Leach’s wife was on the Washington State Bar Association’s Disciplinary Review Committee Gregoire’s Bar complaint was filed by Scannell.  Washington State Bar Association’s Review Committee makes decision on whether to proceed or not proceed with an investigation on the attorney member.

In the case of the Bar complaint attorney John Scannell filed against Governor Gregoire, Vicki Norris lost it or at least claimed she did.

At the time of Gregoire’s appointment of Robert Leach to Division One Court of Appeals, Robert Leach had zero judicial experience.  We call it what it is, a tit for tat political appointment for thwarting  a valid Bar complaint  against then Attorney General Christine Gregoire for costing the taxpayers of Washington State $25,000,000.00 for missing simple court deadlines.

The OK Boys Home lawsuits were settled as a result of AG Gregoire’s missing a simple deadline ( statute of limitations). However, what our readers should know is why the OK Boys became a law suit.  Inside the Ok Boys home, several foster boys made allegations of  sexual abuse against politicians from Olympia, and the main reason why Governor Gregoire’s decided to throw the case by missing a simple filing deadline. By doing so, this forced the State to settle the case.

This allowed a major cover up of known politicians who sexually abused foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home.  Soon we will release a list of politicians involved in molesting foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home, so hold onto your seats, grab some popcorn and beer, as this list is a list that  includes why terminated/disgraced former Dept of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington has been extorting his way out of criminal prosecutions for years. Criminal prosecutions include abuse of women and children and killing 43 people in the Oso mudslides, because instead of doing his job, Pennington was off on east coast performing functions for FEMA.  The Office of Inspector General’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporter that any agency employee receiving a single dime  of federal money is not eligible for FEMA contracts; and Snohomish County Ordianace prohibits all salaried employees from working any other job.

But this list explains why mainly politicians like John E Pennington, Marlin Applewick, and Ken Hoover get a free pass on allegations of child abuse here in Washington State.

Simply put, Dawson Place perverts justice by making the workings inside Dawson Place not public record.

Not only does Dawson Place hide who filed the criminal complaints, but it also hides who those complaints were filed against i.e. politicians. As reported last week, it was set up by Snohomish County Prosecutor now Judge Janice Ellis with 95 % of public monies.

I rightfully call Dawson Place a sham, and by perverting justice by its set up, also argue that its guilty of Sherman Anti Trust violations. Perhaps the Gold Bar Reporter will file a taxpayer standing suit soon.

Now onto another scam 501 (3) (c), i.e. Victim Support Services (VSS). VSS receives its referrals solely from Snohomish County Prosecutors office as does Snohomish County public defense contracts.  In other words, not only does Snohomish County control and operate a secret organization titled Dawson Place, it also controls the Snohomish County Public Defenders contracts and VSS.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell has been quite busy learning how to thwart the legal rights of Defendants here in Snohomish County.  Up until we started investigating VSS, Adam Cornell was the Director  and Board Member of Victims Support Services. But it gets better, so too was a public defender named Tom Cox.

So imagine, you are charged with the crime of molesting or raping a child. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office refers your criminal defense to Tom Cox or worse Phil Sayles. Both are supporters or Board Members of  VSS.  What a conflict to be supporting another alleged non-profit group  VSS, while at the same time hand picked by the Snohomish County Prosecutors Office to defend criminal prosecutions against the accused.

Overall, here’s our findings. Snohomish County Government decides who gets assigned to defend you when you’re charged with a crime. The taxpayers are paying for your defense, and it Snohomish County that hand picks which incompetent public defender gets assigned.  Seldom do you the accused get a public defender who hasn’t failed the Bar countless times, nor do you get to have someone defend you who hasn’t been referred by Snohomish County Prosecutors.

We rightfully call this case fixing at every level. With the cards stacked against the accused, is there such a thing as a fair trial?  If true, should not the officials involved herein be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of the accused or charged with RICO?


Snohomish County’s Malicious Prosecution of Immigrant Ramanveer Bains

Good morning Saudi Arabia,  Snohomish County Washington has a lot in common i.e. fixing cases to condemn the accused for life. Thankfully because of Governor Jay Inslee’s moratorium against the death penalty, Snohomish County wont be able to put you to death.

See https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/washington-governor-announces-moratorium-executions

 

In June 2017, Snohomish County activist/journalist Lori Shavlik discovered what’s really happening inside Dawson Place i.e. Snohomish County Child Advocacy Services.  In 2017, Lori Shavlik field suit against Dawson Place for access to public records. She correctly alleged that Dawson Place is a secret government agency hiding behind non-profit status ( 501 (3) ( c).

Ms. Shavlik correctly pointed out that Snohomish County Prosecutors started Dawson Place and they did so with 95 % of public monies.  The total amount of public monies Dawson Place has received thus far exceeds 27 million.  She also pointed out that Dawson Place performs mainly government functions of law enforcement and prosecutor decisions.

Strangely most the millions of public monies received by Dawson Place never make it to its tax returns.

Much of what was reported herein would not have been possible without her persistent digging inside public records.

In November 2017, the Gold Bar Reporter sat in the audience listening to oral argument in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place. The issue: is Dawson Place public agency under Our Supreme Court’s Telford holding, thus subject to RCW 42.56 ( the Public Records Act).

For those not familiar with Telford’s holding, here’s a link that might help:

http://joethomas.org/2016/02/washington-public-records-quasi-govermnet-agency-test/ 

Every judge inside Snohomish County voluntarily disqualified themselves except Judge George Appel and Judge Cindy Larson.

Public records from various news sources confirm that both Cindy Larsen and Judge George Appel worked inside Dawson Place as prosecutors for Snohomish County.  Judge Janice Ellis, while acting as prosecutor in Snohomish County, started Dawson Place with former Prosecutor Seth Dawson. Hence how Dawson Place got its name. For those of who knew Seth Dawson as the corrupt prosecutor he is, naming Dawson Place after him was just a little booster.

There’s no doubt about it, Judge Janice Ellis helped Prosecutor Seth Dawson start  Dawson Place.  She did so with mainly public monies.  She solicited public monies in violation of Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, thumbed her nose at the rule of law, and misappropriated hundreds of thousands of public resources to help start Dawson Place.

The Gold Bar Reporter reported Judge Janice Ellis’s involvement in all of this a few weeks ago.

See https://goldbarreporter.org/2018/08/

Since the above expose’ on Dawson Place, the Gold Bar Reporter has since learned that there are countless cases that should be investigated, one such case is the case against Ramanveer Bains.

For those of my readers who have a slant against Muslims, please don’t send hate mail, unless you’d like your comments public. In addition, please note that the Gold Bar Reporter’s ancestors were German and Austrian immigrants. In other words, the Gold Bar Reporter doesn’t have time for your hatred based solely on religious beliefs and attempts to control the Biblical story.

My only God is ” justice” and she sees nor has any favored religion nor favored color of a human’s skin to distinguish  between who gets justice inside our courtrooms and who does not.   Justice is defined by honest services. As my readers can see, honest services is something missing inside Snohomish County Washington. Why is simple, because instead of prosecuting criminals, attorneys are siphoning public money and holding kangaroo proceedings with incompetent defense attorneys whose only interest is not working or just simply incompetent like Phil Sayles ( Division One held that Sayles was ineffective assistance of counsel, a disbarable event).

Judge George Appel’s crimes against Ramanveer Bains

the above opinion letters were signed by Snohomish County employees, Detective R. Lewis, Christopher Yue, Keri Wallace, Kaia Scott, Amanda Harpell, and Cindy Larsen and was originally posted on https://www.heraldnet.com/opinion/appel-works-with-child-advocates/

Ramanveer Bains was first accused of raping a 12 year old boy. There was no  physical evidence of a rape, confirmed by Compass Health. Instead of admitting that Snohomish County screwed up, under the disgraced and retired Lisa Paul, Snohomish County Prosecutors decided the best way cover up their conspiracy to harm an immigrant was to prosecute Mr Bains on a lesser charge.  But there was only one problem, the 12 year old child gave over six (6) different stories and none amounted to Mr. Bains being guilty of anything except a 12 year old child being lonely after school friending a neighbor who happens to be a Muslim immigrant.

Another journalist sat down with Ramanveer Bains last week and learned that he doesn’t speak nor understand English. Although not the central point of this article, we did run a check on his court record and found no evidence that Mr. Bains was offered nor received an interpreter.  What Mr. Bains did receive was a clean bill of health from Compass Health stating that he was competent to stand trial.

Trial begins. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office hand picks the public defender.  Neil Patterson and Tom Cox.

In the Bains appeal,  who is better equipped to throw the case but a known member of the County’s little scam, attorney Tom Cox.  Tom Cox, as my readers may recall, is also a good friend to Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell, and both served on Victim Support Services Board together.

So imagine this. Mr. Baines has a public defender and good friend of the lead Dawson Place prosecutor Adam Cornell assigned by Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office to defend against allegations that he molested or sought sexual gratification from a 12 year boy.  Snohomish County started Dawson Place. Dawson Place decides who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t; Dawson Place, Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers meet and vote on whether to prosecute you or not. They do this behind closed doors and then claim that this Board is not subject to the Open Public Meetings Act.   Once the decision is made to prosecute you, Snohomish County assigns you the accused to Compass Health. Compass Health is also a participant on whether or not there’s enough evidence to proceed with a criminal prosecution of you or not.  However, once Snohomish County/ Dawson Place files the complaint against you the accused, Snohomish County Judiciary shuffles you the accused back to Compass Health for a competency test. Compass Health is allowed to makes decisions on whether to prosecute and also whether you are competent to stand trial .

Fixing cases, or money laundering or perhaps both?

After Compass Health decides that you the accused are competent ( as there is no case where Compass Health ever held that a defendant wasn’t competent to stand trial), next point of order from our good friends inside Snohomish County is what judge will be assigned.

 

Lo and behold, two Judges are almost always assigned to adjudicate Dawson Place cases, Judge George Appel and Judge Janice Ellis. Remember from the above Herald opinion piece, Judge Appel worked inside Dawson Place, and from my past article from August 2018, Judge Janice Ellis started Dawson Place and had a pecuniary interest by way of a 12 % loan.

Not once did Judge George Appel disclose his participation in Dawson Place to Mr. Bains.

For Mr. Bains, this little racketeering scheme denied him access to Justice.  Judge George Appel never not once disclosed to Ramanveer Bains or in a open hearing that he worked inside Dawson Place. Perhaps if Mr. Bains had known, he might have exercised his right to ‘ disqualify a Snohomish County judge as a matter of right once.” But Mr. Bain did not because Judge George Appel did not disclose that while he was a Prosecutor he worked  inside Dawson Place. Obviously, if you’re a corrupt judge, you can’t fix cases if the accused is informed, and as for Ramanveer Bains, a man who speaks little English, he was doomed from the get go.

Pages from Ramanveer Bains-2_Page_2

Doomed, not only because George Appel thought it was justifiable to violate the rights of the accused, but also because Mr. Bains’s does not understand English, and with the anti-Muslim rhetoric in this so called American democracy lately,  Mr. Bains had no idea about this little racketeering scam he was up against.

In 2016, Ramanveer Bains was convicted not of child rape as originally pursued by our disgraceful excuse for Prosecutors, but for sexual gratification involving a minor.  But wait, one last piece of information, the 12 year child was interviewed six (6) times yielding a different statement in all six interviews.  The Prosecutor used only the interview that supported its position, and then hide the rest under seal from the jury, and Judge Appel squashes any attempt to include the other six interviews. Thus, fixing the case against Mr. Bains.

As for Mr. Bains so called public defender, he did nothing except agree to “seal Dawson Place interviews” so that Mr. Bains could not use the interviews to support his appeal.

Mr. Bains remains imprisoned for a crime he may or may not have committed. With the cards stacked against the accused, we may never know if Mr. Bains committed the crime he was found guilty of.  Until Mr. Bains gets a fair trial, we shall never know.

We do however know that Ramanveer Bains had no past criminal history whatsoever.

You decide is this is our so called American Democracy or not?  The only advocate on the 9th Circuit for Justice was the former Chief Justice Alex Kozinski, but false allegations against Justice Kozinski managed to conspire to push him out of the 9th Circuit.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s crimes against county taxpayers, forces his early retirement

October 20, 2017 by goldbarreporter 4 Comments

Snohomish County Prosecutor forced into early retirement after public records reveal that he and the County have been misappropriating public funds, operating a secret government funded company “Dawson Place” set up by Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Seth Dawson, and Janice Ellis ( Ellis is now serving as Snohomish County Superior Court Judge) with 15 Million dollars of taxpayers monies.

Purpose for creating Dawson Place is alleged to be to help children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse.  However, that’s not what it’s being used for.  Dawson Place is being used to hide law enforcement investigations, hide government accountability, illegal track citizens, illegally access health records on citizens who question government officials, and hide public records to evade accountability.

In 1972, Washington State’s Legislature enacted RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act) with this preamble:

The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. This chapter shall be liberally construed and its exemptions narrowly construed to promote this public policy and to assure that the public interest will be fully protected. In the event of conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other act, the provisions of this chapter shall govern.

 

In several cases, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was caught performing investigations ( law enforcement function) subjecting the County to gross 1983 violations and violating Our Court’s holding in Kalina v. Fletcher, 522 U.S. 118 (1997) ( Prosecutor’s who act as a detective/investigator lose any immunity they claim they have)

Bigger problem for those of us who care about the rights of the accused, hiding “exculpatory evidence” in violation of Our Court’s Holding in Brady v. Maryland – Wikipedia 

In a nutshell, the Supreme Court held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process “where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment”; and the court determined that under Maryland state law the withheld evidence could not have exculpated the defendant but was material to the level of punishment he would be given. Hence the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling was affirmed.

A defendant’s request for “Brady disclosure” refers to the holding of the Brady case, and the numerous state and federal cases that interpret its requirement that the prosecution disclose material exculpatory evidence to the defense. Exculpatory evidence is “material” if “there is a reasonable probability that his conviction or sentence would have been different had these materials been disclosed”.[2] Brady evidence includes statements of witnesses or physical evidence that conflicts with the prosecution’s witnesses,[3] and evidence that could allow the defense to impeach the credibility of a prosecution witness.

Dawson Place, scamming victims, and scamming the Washington State taxpayers

Error! Filename not specified.

So what happens when the government is funneling public money to an alleged non-profit, like Dawson Place, and then claims it doesn’t have to comply with Washington State’s Open Government laws, RCW Chapter 42.56 RCW_ PUBLIC RECORDS ACT?

It’s called hiding public records to ensure criminal convictions, and cherry picking criminal prosecutions to hide crime stats.  In the case of Lori Shavlik, it equates to criminal racketeering as political favors to retaliate against persons who question government officers, like Mark Roe and Monroe School Superintendent Ken Hoover.

Rape in Monroe Washington High School, ignored by Dawson Place

When a Snohomish County resident’s daughter was violently raped and assaulted at the Monroe Washington High School in 2007, she did what any mother would do, she demanded justice and sought help for her daughter.  One such place the mother sought help from was Dawson Place ( Dawson Advocacy Services)

Dawson Place alleges to be a 501(3)(c) but yet it was created by Prosecutors Seth Dawson ( hence how it got its name), Adam Cornell, and Mark Roe, and receives 77 % of its money from the public funds, and the Board is controlled by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Sheriff Ty Trenary.

Instead of calling the police department and reporting the crime of rape, Monroe High School’s Superintendent Ken Hoover covered it up. Why, because reporting the crime of rape doesn’t sell houses.

The mother filed complaints against Monroe High School and received and a favorable Administrative Law Judge’s finding that Monroe High School violated her daughter’s Title VIII rights.

Meanwhile, the mother is asking Dawson Place for resources for her daughter, little did she know that the people who were taking her criminal complaints against those same public officials from the Monroe High School at Dawson Place were in fact Snohomish County Sheriff Officers and Prosecutors.  Conflict fudgamagic?

Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to a tape recorded interview with a member of Dawson Place who openly admitted when asked who the Dawson Place advocates were, her response was “Dawson Place doesn’t have any advocates. Advocates are the Sheriff and Prosecutors.”

So this begs one question: how can a company allege its a non-profit be receiving millions of taxpayer money and have government officers ( more likely than not on taxpayer time) run a non-profit?

Instead of helping this victim, Dawson Place along with Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Mark Roe and Adam Cornell conspired to harm her and trumped up arson charges on her using one known Brady Cop ( and a personal friend to Mark Roe’s who openly smokes pot with Mark Roe inside Snohomish County 7th Floor Public Offices. See http://snocoreporter.com/mark-roe-turn-rock-music-put-bong-follow-brady-v-maryland/ )

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know the mom as a loving mother, a victim of Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, and Adam Cornell’s malicious prosecution racketeering scheme fraudulently charging her with arson to shut her up for speaking out about the corruption, a friend, a freedom fighter and person who doesn’t take no for an answer.

These attributes make her target for Snohomish County Prosecutor Gang Stalking Network. A network operating from Snohomish County Prosecutor and Sheriff’s offices.  A network from public agency titled “Dawson Advocacy Services”  also doing business as “Dawson Place.”

But Prosecutor Mark Roe got caught, resulting in his early retirement for misappropriation of public assets

Lori Shavlik and Arthur West sued Dawson Place, claiming that its a “public agency”  – West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, Snohomish County Superior Court

On Thursday October 18, 2017, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe announced his resignation as Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office effective December 31, 2018. Mr. Roe’s resignation comes immediately following a lawsuit involving his misuse of public assets and resources to support a non-profit group, Dawson Place.

Two weeks ago, Mark Roe’s was placed under oath, forcing his under the oath admission  that he violated Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, operated an alleged non-profit , Dawson Place, while being paid by Snohomish County taxpayers.

Dawson Place, a public agency hiding exculpatory evidence to ensure convictions

When a Prosecutor assumes duties of an office s/he is sworn in to uphold the laws of Washington, and both the U.S. and Washington State’s Constitution.  From Mark Roe’s deposition in West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, one has to wonder if Mark Roe failed Constitutional law or simply a criminal in a suit believing himself to be above of the laws of Washington.  We believe it’s a little of both.

Washington State, Prosecutor’s Duties ( law Mark Roe are sworn in to uphold, but not only ignored, Mark Roe also went out of his way to violate laws he was sworn in to uphold)

RCW 36.27.020- Prosecutor’s Duties.

The prosecuting attorney shall:

 

(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;

 

(4) Prosecute all criminal and civil actions in which the state or the county may be a party, defend all suits brought against the state or the county, and prosecute actions upon forfeited recognizance and bonds and actions for the recovery of debts, fines, penalties, and forfeitures accruing to the state or the county;

 

(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;

(6) Institute and prosecute proceedings before magistrates for the arrest of persons charged with or reasonably suspected of felonies when the prosecuting attorney has information that any such offense has been committed and the prosecuting attorney shall for that purpose attend when required by them if the prosecuting attorney is not then in attendance upon the superior court;

 

(7) Carefully tax all cost bills in criminal cases and take care that no useless witness fees are taxed as part of the costs and that the officers authorized to execute process tax no other or greater fees than the fees allowed by law;

 

(8) Receive all cost bills in criminal cases before district judges at the trial of which the prosecuting attorney was not present, before they are lodged with the legislative authority for payment, whereupon the prosecuting attorney may retax the same and the prosecuting attorney must do so if the legislative authority deems any bill exorbitant or improperly taxed;

 

(9) Present all violations of the election laws which may come to the prosecuting attorney’s knowledge to the special consideration of the proper jury;

(10) Examine once in each year the official bonds of all county and precinct officers and report to the legislative authority any defect in the bonds of any such officer;

 

(11) Seek to reform and improve the administration of criminal justice and stimulate efforts to remedy inadequacies or injustice in substantive or procedural law;

 

(12) Participate in the statewide sexual assault kit tracking system established in RCW 43.43.545 for the purpose of tracking the status of all sexual assault kits connected to criminal investigations and prosecutions within the county. Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.

Not only did Mark Roe violate basic laws regarding his conduct while serving as a Prosecutor, he brags about his crimes against taxpayers.

Perhaps Mark Roe also missed “misappropriation” of public resources section of Washington’s Revised Code:

RCW 42.20.070 -Misappropriation and falsification of accounts by public officer.

Every public officer, and every other person receiving money on behalf or for or on account of the people of the state or of any department of the state government or of any bureau or fund created by law in which the people are directly or indirectly interested, or for or on account of any county, city, town, or any school, diking, drainage, or irrigation district, who:

 

 

(1) Appropriates to his or her own use or the use of any person not entitled thereto, without authority of law, any money so received by him or her as such officer or otherwise; or

 

 

(2) Knowingly keeps any false account, or makes any false entry or erasure in any account, of or relating to any money so received by him or her; or

 

 

(3) Fraudulently alters, falsifies, conceals, destroys, or obliterates any such account; or

 

 

(4) Willfully omits or refuses to pay over to the state, its officer or agent authorized by law to receive the same, or to such county, city, town, or such school, diking, drainage, or irrigation district or to the proper officer or authority empowered to demand and receive the same, any money received by him or her as such officer when it is a duty imposed upon him or her by law to pay over and account for the same, is guilty of a class B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in a state correctional facility for not more than fifteen years.

 

The above RCW clearly defines what a Snohomish County Prosecutor’s role is, and does not include acting as President or a Board member for Dawson Place.

 

 

Once West/ Shavlik confronted Mark Roe with his criminal activity, and being placed under investigation for his illegal activities, Mark Roe announced his retirement effective December 31, 2018.  Why, because Mark Roe knows several citizens are planning to Recall him for his misappropriation of public resources to run Dawson Place (Mark Roe’s self proclaimed fort).

 

Click  Mark Roe Depo

 

No longer is it acceptable to say “Mark Roe needs to go” , it is time for the county taxpayers to demand  that ” Mark Roe must go, and not on his terms”

 

Mark Roe needs to go, and the voters should not have to wait until December 31, 2018, to rid our county of the criminals who are misusing our resources for their own political agenda.

 

In my opinion, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe should be in prison for misuse of our county resources for his own political capital, withholding evidence in countless criminal trials by claiming that “Dawson Place” is a non-profit group.

 

Mark Roe’s deposition make one thing clear,  Mark Roe, Seth Dawson, Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell created a secret government agency, Dawson Place.  A place that Mark Roe can claim that no public records exist, hide law enforcement investigations and evidence by claiming it’s a private non-profit group in violation of basic constitutional principles I love more than the practice of law.

 

As such, Mark Roe’s Recall must move forward regardless of whether he decides to retire next year, as our open government laws here in Washington cannot wait for Mark Roe to go, nor should the county taxpayers write a single check in support of his blatant disrespect and disregard for the constitutional rights of Washingtonians.

 

Dawson Place needs a lot of sunshine and RCW 42.56 is just the remedy to cure Snohomish County’s ” Domestic Spying Ring” also known as Dawson Place.


Snohomish County Prosecutors Adam Cornell, Judge Janice Ellis, and County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs, racketeering and money laundering crimes exposed in public records

August 22, 2018 by goldbarreporter 2 Comments 

 

“Money laundering is a very sophisticated crime and we must be equally sophisticated.” Janet Reno, former US Attorney General 

 

Wikipedia:   Money laundering is the act of concealing the transformation of profits from illegal activities and corruption into ostensibly “legitimate” assets.The dilemma of illicit activities is accounting for the origin of the proceeds of such activities without raising the suspicion of law enforcement agencies. Accordingly, considerable time and effort is put into devising strategies which enable the safe use of those proceeds without raising unwanted suspicion. Implementing such strategies is generally called money laundering. After money has been suitably laundered or “cleaned”, it can be used in the mainstream economy for accumulation of wealth, such as acquisitions of properties, or otherwise spent. Law enforcement agencies of many jurisdictions have set up sophisticated systems in an effort to detect suspicious transactions or activities, and many have set up international cooperative arrangements to assist each other in these endeavors. In a number of legal and regulatory systems, the term “money laundering” has become conflated with other forms of financial and business crime, and is sometimes used more generally to include misuse of the financial system (involving things such as securities, digital currencies, credit cards, and traditional currency), including terrorism financing and evasion of international sanctions.Most anti-money laundering laws openly conflate money laundering (which is concerned with source of funds) with terrorism financing (which is concerned with destination of funds) when regulating the financial system.[3]

In June 2017, Snohomish County activist/journalist Lori Shavlik discovered what’s really happening inside Dawson Place i.e. Snohomish County Child Advocacy Services. But this wasn’t the first time Dawson Place came under Ms. Shavlik’s radar.

Ms. Shavlik was a same business owner in Snohomish County, Washington, from 2000 to 2011.  She owned two tanning salons, one in Monroe, and another in the City of Snohomish. One day she learned that her daughter had been violently assaulted inside the Monroe High School.  As such, she demanded justice, prosecution and support services for her daughter.

As any mother knows, the first step is to seek support services.  This landed Ms. Shavlik on the front steps of Dawson Place. Dawson Place alleges to be a non-profit support group for victims of physical and sexual assault.

 http://dawsonplace.org/

 

” We show kids who’ve been sexually and physically abused that they deserve to be happy, and we help them see how….”

Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecutor and Board Member of Dawson Place.

 

Last year, we contacted Dawson Place seeking an interview to discuss what exactly does Dawson Place do.  For the Gold Bar Reporter, informing the public about what services are available for children who are sexually abused is as important to me as exposing corruption inside government.  Dawson Place refused to comment to our request for information.

In early May 2018, we entered the office of Dawson Place asking a few questions regarding who performs the child interviews, who works inside Dawson Place, and who gets to decide what cases are prosecuted.  Instead of the office worker answering our questions, Dawson Place’s Director Lori Vanderburg threatened to have us arrested for trespassing.

Lori Vanderburg is a licensed social worker, and a childhood friend of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe. From the above quote, Mark Roe openly brags about being a Board of Director member for Dawson Place.  We could find no evidence that Lori Vanderberg has any prior experience with dealing with children who are victims or may not be victims of sexual abuse.  She is simply a store front political appointment made by her dear childhood friend and Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe.

But why, what is the purpose of creating an alledged non-profit company titled ” Dawson Place” is something that took me over a year to fully understand, and had it not been for Ms. Shavlik’s persistent digging inside public records, and one whistle-blower Amy May ( Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Public Records Officer), Dawson Place i.e Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, Judge Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell and attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs’s money laundering and racketeering scheme would have stayed under the radar.

For this, I dedicate this article to Lori Shavlik, who has inspired me beyond any other person in my life, aside from two law school professors who said ” Anne’, you’re going to instigate change where change is needed.”

I live my life by John Adams quote ” always stand on principle even if you stand alone.’

In June 2017, Lori Shavlik filed suit against Dawson Place seeking access to public records.  Dawson Place immediately responded stating that it is not a public agency under RCW 42.56, thus they had no duty to produce records. However, as an alleged non-profit group, Dawson Place admitted it was required to produce IRS tax filings.  From here, this lead us to uncovering, in my opinion, the largest racketeering and money laundering scheme involving Snohomish County Prosecutors, at least one County Judge, and one notorious contractor who has been stealing federal tax payer monies on several schemes.

The Board of Directors at Dawson Place include Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary, Prosecutors Mark Roe and Judge Janice Ellis, and Everett Chief of Police Kathy Atwood, and many other government officials, plus one non-government officer from Compass Health.

Imagine this: Snohomish County government officers are running this alleged non-profit group titled Dawson Place, they are doing this on the taxpayer’s dime, and then claim its a non-profit group.  They use Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers, including one Brady Cop named David Fontenot. Non-profit or agency?

Snohomish County Sheriff officer David Fontenot was fired and recommended for criminal prosecution after he was caught fixing crime scenes, stealing guns from the evidence locker, unlawful arrest of his girlfriend’s soon to be ex, sexually harassing women in Challam County, and tasering a handcuffed man inside a police car.

Snohomish County Prosecutors Adam Cornell and Mark Roe decided to assign a man guilty of sexually harassing women as a the lead detective at Dawson Place.

Pretty laughable stuff, but bigger question for us open government supporters, why? Why are government officers running Dawson Place and misappropriating public monies and resources to operate it?

Last week, Snohomish County Public Records Officer Amy Nay handed us the answer via a release of public records. This after the County filed countless false statements with Judge Cindy Larson ( another judge who helped operate Dawson Place while inside the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office) obtaining a favorable dismissal claiming ” Snohomish County had nothing to do with starting nor operating Dawson Place.” Chief County Prosecutor who lied under oath Sara Di Vittorio ( in my past articles we referred to her as Sister Sara, the 5th Mule).

Sara Di Vittorio is a former Washington State Attorney General, who was constructively terminated from the AG’s Office after then AG Rob McKenna caught Sister Sara tampering with public records in 2009. The records Sister Sara illegally removed were records sent from Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill to Department of Correction ( Monroe) warehouse employee Lonn Turner.

In March 2009, the Washington State Bar Association Board of Director G. Geoffrey Gibbs illegally obtained a copy of the Gold Bar Reporter’s Washington State Bar application file and then disseminated it to Weed, Gaafstra and Benson, who then disseminated it to Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill.

It is illegal for anyone to obtain a WSBA file except the member, and that was me.  Since that time, the WSBA has assisted in racketeering crimes for which they are being sued for, and subject to another suit coming soon.  Worthy of mentioning the connection, because it always seems like the same cockroaches are engaged in the same criminal racketeering crimes here in Washington State.

Although not the central point of this article, it’s important to know that the employees inside the County offices answering public records request are criminals. Remember the name G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

 

In 2006 to 2008, Snohomish County Prosecutor was Janice Ellis.  Public records released last week document that Janice Ellis started Dawson Place almost entirely with government resources.

RCW 36.27.020 is clear that starting non-profits and soliciting for public monies to start an alleged non-profit group is not listed in her government duties as a prosecutor. 

 

What does all this mean?  It means, Snohomish County Prosecutor Janice Ellis started Dawson Place. She solicited the federal, state and local governments for public money to fund Dawson Place.  Public money represents over 95 % of all funds used to operate Dawson Place, and it claims its not a public agency.

Sad for Ms. Ellis, the whistle-blower released public records documenting that Janice Ellis is the brains behind Dawson Place.

But the story doesn’t end here.

In 2009, Janice Ellis was appointed to an open Snohomish County Superior Court seat, and at the time Dawson Place Board member and Everett Chief of Police  Kathy Atwood said ” Ellis was the driving force in Dawson Place becoming a reality” and described Ellis as “kind but tough. ”

Through whistle-blower records, we also know that Janice Ellis was not only was the sole creator of Dawson Place, misusing public resources to help get Dawson Place started, she also loaned Dawson Place $300,000.00 with 12 % interest.

Public records searches from the Washington State business license lookup yielded no “creditor license” for Janice Ellis, and our Supreme Court held that if you loan money with interest, you must have a creditor’s license.

After learning that Judge Janice Ellis not only has a pecuniary interest in Dawson Place, totaling over $1000.00 per month from Dawson Place to pay only the interest on her loan, we started sifting through countless criminal trials where as she participated as the trial Judge with Dawson Place as a witness against the defendant, and as of today, we have found 15 and counting.

Imagine this: you are charged with the hideous crime of molesting or raping a child. Obviously, we want pedophiles behind bars, while at the same time, we must assure that the persons we are putting behind bars are guilty  of the crimes.

You are the defendant, and the county never discloses to you that the trial Judge, Janice Ellis, is the person who started Dawson Place.  Not only did Judge Ellis never disclose she started Dawson Place to a single defendant being prosecuted with the assistance of Dawson Place, Judge Ellis never disclosed to you the defendant that she has been funneling public monies to herself at $1000.00 per month to pay only the interest on her loan that helped jump start Dawson Place.

Washington State list of gross Cannon Rules violations comes to light here. See

https://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.list&group=ga&set=CJC

Above is a copy of the County deeds and loans Janice Ellis made to Dawson Place, and evidence she, while siting as a Judge, had a pecuniary interest in Dawson Place and never not once disclosed her interest in Dawson Place to countless defendants.

The Court records above are clear that Judge Janice has been violating the rights of the accused for over ten years. More on this soon.

 

From 2008 to March 8, 2016, Judge Janice Ellis funneled public monies to personal bank account via Dawson Place. Dawson Place is funded solely with public monies, and recently Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was deposed who agreed that Dawson Place is a public agency.

 

How and why Lori Shavlik started investing Dawson Place can be simply described as a caring mother who wanted to help her daughter and prosecute the perpetrator inside the Monroe High School.  But at the time, Ms. Shavlik had no idea that Dawson Place is operated and controlled solely with public monies, and had a real dilemma on their hands.

In 2008, Monroe High School Superintendent Ken Hoover was being accused of fathering a child to an underage student inside Monroe High School.  Prosecutors Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Janice Ellis, and Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs ( who was convicted of fraud and suspended permanently by the AG from Lobbying in Olympia), covered up Ken Hoover’s statutory rape of a student. At the same time Ms. Shavlik is complaining about Ken Hoover harassing her daughter for reporting the crime of rape, Hoover is asking for assistance in shutting Ms. Shavlik up, and he’s calling in favors from Dawson Place prosecutor Adam Cornell.

Adam Cornell has his own problems inside the OK Boys homes when he was a foster kid. Cornell was raised by a wife abuser, drunk, and drug addict and born Adam Stubbs.

After settling with the state of Washington, which includes a free college education and law degree, he settled down in Edmonds Washington with his wife who is also President of Starbucks sales. .

From 2011 to Present, Adam Cornell was assigned solely to misdemeanor crimes unit and supervisor of the Snohomish County District Court.

In 2009 Ms Shavlik is raising cane about the way her daughter was treated, threats made by Monroe Schools Superintendent ( who I call a pedophile), and why Snohomish County would not prosecute the rapist ( who is now in prison for crimes against women using a gun).

Prosecutors Mark Roe, Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell decided to the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to trump up arson charges on her using a Brady Cop named David Fontenot.  David Fontenot was fired from the University of Washington and Challam County Sheriff’s Office for sexually harassing women, stealing guns from the evidence locked, and tasering a handcuffed suspect while he was sitting the the backseat of a police car.  A stellar choice for assisting the prosecution with crimes hidden behind the walls of Dawson Place and alleged non-profit group to assist women and children with coping with the aftermaths of physical and sexual abuse.

 

Remember, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was assigned to Dawson Place, solely assigned to misdemeanor charges. In 2010, at the bequest of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Janice Ellis, Adam Cornell used Brady Cop David Fontenot to and a drug addict and paid county informant named Rebecca Bradshaw to stage a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s place of business in the City of Snohomish.

How we know Adam Cornell was involved in going after Lori Shavlik is simple, RCW 42.56 documents that Adam Cornell, a misdemeanor prosecutor directed David Fontenot to falsify a search warrant, and then without finding a single piece of evidence in support of arson after three searches of Ms Shavlik’s place of business and home, Adam Cornell certified the probable cause against Lori Shavlik for felony arson.

Between 2010 and March 8, 2016, Lori Shavlik was maliciously prosecuted by Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Franchaca Yadavi,  Judge Janice Ellis, Brady Cop David Fontenot and an undisclosed Brady Cop Kendra Connelly. Not once, but twice. One hung jury and one complete acquittal.

From pubic emails, we also know that Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell illegally contacted Ms. Shavlik’s defense attorney John Crowley’s intern James Elliott asking him to dig into John Crowley’s clients files. Purpose, to dig up dirt on John Crowley.  Why, so Adam Cornell and Washington State Bar Board of Governor G. Geoffrey Gibbs could get attorney John Crowley disbarred for refusing to throw his client, Lori Shavlik, under the bus.

Immediately following Adam Cornell’s email letter to attorney John Crowley’s intern, James Elliot was awarded for assisting the Snohomish County RICO Enterprise of getting John Crowley disbarred with the Washington State Bar Association, with a new job inside Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office. Elliot remains there today.

Bob Crowley probably never knew the extend of how Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell and Snohomish County’s hired thug and contractor G. Geoffrey Gibbs used political influence inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel to “extort” John Crowley’s Washington State Bar license, but we do, as we have public emails documenting that Adam Cornell is guilty of RICO and should be inside a federal prison until the day he takes his last breath.

Criminals like Adam Cornell, Judge Janice Ellis and G. Geoffrey Gibbs have no place inside county offices.

 

If having a Judge who started Dawson Place, who is  also receiving a pecuniary interest of $1000 per month from 2007 to March 8, 2018 from Dawson Place, sitting in on your case with Dawson Place as the main witness against you isn’t bad enough, we also know that Janice Ellis attempts to hide her money laundering scheme, she used another convicted fraudster and County Commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs as her personal attorney to launder public monies.

Above we posted the deed transfers, and how much public money has been siphoned off the top by Geoffrey Gibbs transferring and resales of the same Dawson Place building.  We disclosed this issue with a RICO attorney who said ” there is no legal basis to transfer properties back and forth that are already owned by the county.  If you look at the deed on the Dawson Place property, it’s clear its a County building. This begs one question: why are they buying and selling the same building with public monies, but yet it doesn’t show up in Dawson Place’s tax returns. For me this means someone is siphoning off public monies.”

This brings us back to G. Geoffrey Gibbs extensive criminal history of laundering public monies. His laundering schemes include, but probably are not solely limited to assisting the WSBA Bar members inside the guardian scam which also involves a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer ( also convicted guardian scammer, theft, embezzlement, and accepting $$ bribes from John E Pennington and Crystal Hill Berg to have the Gold Bar Reporter disbarred for reporting on their criminal history of bank fraud, theft, harassment, violently assaulting children and pedophilia) and stealing millions from the Snohomish County Housing Association, Snohomish County Public Defenders Association ( using Gibbs’s partner Vicki Norris and her husband Judge Robert Leach to fix cases), and theft of public monies using Dawson Place as a store front for their money laundering scheme.

Everett attorney and WA State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs caught red handed via public records filing false statements with Judicial Ethics Commission, and violating Sherman Anti-Trust to assist Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office in going after any lawyer who exposes corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs, the criminals inside the WA State Bar ( Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, and Doug Ende), and Snohomish County criminal Racketeering outfit (an RICO Enterprise operating from Snohomish County Judicial and Prosecutor’s Office).

In 2009, attorney Geoffrey Gibbs misused his political offices to assist Crystal Hill Pennington, John E. Pennington, Aaron Reardon, and Joe Beavers to cover up the Karl Marjerle sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.  Racketeering captured in public records.

Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for Racketeering five times in the last two years for his criminal conduct.  An email from Everett Prosecutor Michael Fischer from G. Geoffrey Gibbs has  Gibbs sending an email to a Prosecutor demanding that he file criminal assault charges against Carolyn Ryggs so that she will have to expend a very large retainer to hire counsel. Because Gibbs was in a land dispute with the Ryggs after public records confirmed that was using Judge Michael Downes to steal Carolyn Ryggs’s land.

Geoffrey Gibbs’s fraud in the 1990s as illustrated by the Washington Public Disclosure Commission is well documented below.

Now, Geoffrey Gibbs criminal Enterprise and public records confirm that Gibbs and Prosecutor Seth Fine are the main reason why Snohomish County yields over 40 % of disciplined lawyer inside the WA State Bar, while the highest populated county, King County ( Seattle) , only yields 12 %. According to our counsel, clear Sherman Anti-Trust violations; a federal felony.

We’re also working on a story linking the Klan to the ” Ok Boys Home” a story worth waiting for.

Just another stellar example of why the Washington State Bar will be abolished.

Mark Roe – Board of Director and President of Dawson Place 

 

“We show kids who’ve been sexually and physically abused that they deserve to be happy, and we help them see how….” Mark Roe.  However, if you’re a woman sexually assaulted, its ok.

Mark Roe’s actions below document quite nicely his disdain and lack of respect for women.

 

The Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office attorneys never cease to amaze me with their criminal conduct.  Criminal conduct that includes criminal harassment ( using a foe online website titled the Sky Valley Chronicle, allowing county employees to criminally harass and cyber-stalk persons who request access to public records or question Mark Roe’s criminal enterprise at the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office), tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center Records, threats to arrests person without authority of law, and now, allowing county prosecutors to take nude pictures of an intoxicated woman who appears to have no ability to consent.

In June 2018, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Chris Dickinson, 55, grouped a female co-worker at a party in Chelan while he was being paid to attend the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys’ conference, while two other prosecutors ( who Mark Roe refused to identify) took intimate / nude photos of a woman, who appears to be too intoxicated to consent. Our inside source said ” I understand that at least two of prosecutors passed those nude photos around on Snohomish County Prosecutors computers.”

According to a source inside Snohomish County, its believed that deputy prosecutors had dinner and then when out for drinks. Thereafter,  over ten Snohomish County prosecutors gathered in a hotel room on Lake Chelan.  A female prosecutor said she was moving a footstool when Christopher Dickinson grabbed her breast and tried to pull her onto his lap.


“For the powerful, crimes at what other commit” Noam Chomsky

Racketeering exposed in Prosecutor Mark Roe’s actions 

 

Instead of firing everyone involved in what appears to be criminal felonious conduct, Mark Roe, claims that he ordered mandatory sexual harassment training for his staff…and reprimanded one other deputy prosecutor for actions that night and admonished others for not taking quicker, more decisive steps to intervene.”

“I admonished several other people who were there that night,” Roe said. “I had them in my office. I told them that I expected more … If you see anything, even it it is something you are not directly involved with, you need to report it.”

 

Mark Roe determined the pictures were taken in poor judgment. Mahjoubian received a letter of reprimand on July 6.

Instead of being criminally prosecuted as the felons they are, Deputy prosecutor Kirk Mahjoubian, who took felonious pictures of woman was simply disciplined, a slap on the wrist for committing a felony.

 

Snohomish County’s prosecutor, Mark Roe, confirmed that a Chelan County detective interviewed a female deputy prosecutor yesterday who said longtime deputy prosecutor Christopher Dickinson grabbed her breasts during a legal conference in Chelan last month.

 

The Gold Bar Reporter is demanding the Chelan County charge every single prosecutor involved in taking nude pictures of a woman without her consent with felonies.

Criminal prosecution should not just be for those not associated with the Washington State Bar Association and Snohomish County criminal organization otherwise known Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

 

Mark Roe allowing persons to sexually assault a woman and then takes intimate pictures of woman without her consent should be investigated by the US Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with all deliberate speed.

 

The ” Me Too” Movement should be demanding that every prosecutor involved herein be prosecuted to the fullest extent  of the law.

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

Soto        Ragonesi

 Ann Marie Soto                                          Shannon Ragonesi 

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, Shannon Ragonesi and 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.

Here’s just three cases that illustrate quite nicely three Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe,  Wallace Langbehn III and Sean Reay’s criminal racketeering acts exposed in public NCIC records.

Sno County Prosecutor Sean Reay, removing criminal history records from NCIC as political favors


In 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor, Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) attempted to have the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime for exposing her crimes against the City of Gold Bar taxpayers ( theft in excess of $200,000.00). Ms. Hill Berg was sleeping with several married men inside Snohomish County government, including but not limited to Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.

Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and John E Pennington were stealing from Snohomish County Emergency Management and the County’s Emergency Housing Funds.  Federal money distributed to the local government via a welfare block grant.

On July 5, 2008, Gold Bar’s water employee Karl Majerle was caught red handed stealing from the City of Gold Bar, and had in fact sabotaged the City’s Wells, # 3 and 4. Why, because Ms. Hill (Berg) was informed by Gold Bar council member Dorothy Croshaw that Majerle was stealing from the City.  After Karl Majerle was caught stealing, he was fired, which he recorded via audio means, and then out of anger, he left City Hall and poured gravel down Gold Bar’s City wells # 3 and 4.  Instead of reporting the federal crimes, as acts of domestic terrorism to Gold Bar’s water system, Ms. Hill (Berg) decided the best way to handle this was to ask Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay for a favor i.e. help quash criminal charges against Majerle.

And Sean Reay did  it.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay received the criminal referral from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Terry Handleman and Deputy Jeff Ross ( Brady Cops). Sean Reay received a phone call from Snohomish County Director John E Pennington and Executive Aaron Reardon asking for his help in quashing the criminal charges as “political courtesy.”  Sean Reay called then Sheriff and both made an agreement to not prosecute Karl Majerle for sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.

Sean Reay, in an effort to make it look good, sent the Karl Majerle’s criminal complaint to his wife, Laura Twindale. Ms. Twinsdale is in charge of Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division.

Sean Reay never referred the case to the federal government as all crimes against water systems must be referred to the DOJ and FBI for investigation and/or prosecution. But instead, Sean Reay sent the criminal complaint against Gold Bar’s water employee to his wife, Laura Twinsdale. Ms. Twinsdale is only in charge of misdemeanor offenses and has no authority  to issue felony charges nor prosecute federal crimes.

We later learned that Karl Majerle and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) had entered into a bribery scheme. Why, because Karl Majerle knew what we didn’t know for five years until Snohomish County finally released a record it illegally withheld for almost 7 years now.

Simply put, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is guilty of racketeering, quashing criminal charges as political favors.  Perhaps Mr. Reay thought he and Aaron Reardon were going to the Governor’s Manson.  So sad, but along came the Gold Bar Reporter, and Aaron Reardon was ousted for stealing public monies.

As a political favor, Sean Reay helped Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal conviction and arrest records from NCIC.

Not only did Prosecutor Sean Reay assist Ms. Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal history from NCIC, he also entered into a bribery scheme with Ms. Hill Pennington (nee Berg),  to quash criminal charges after she violently assaulted a six year old child.

 

Our readers, and those Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) stole from ( City of Gold Bar taxpayers) should be happy to know that she is now frauding the federal taxpayers working as a contractor at FEMA in Emittsburg Maryland.   According to the Office of Inspector General, persons convicted of fraud are not eligible for federal employment or federal contracts of any nature.

FEMA’s Brock Long was made aware of Crystal Hill Pennington’s criminal history and has refused comment.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III, putting false criminal history records inside NCIC.  Why?  To enhance criminal sentencing if the accused is found guilty. We also have ample evidence to also document that Wallace Langbehn also falsely placed criminal history inside NCIC to retaliate against persons who exposed Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (C).

The Gold Bar Reporter was the first to expose Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (c) with its sole purpose used by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Prosecutors Office for purposes of domestic spying and siphoning over $27 Million dollars of Washington State and federal taxpayer monies.

Dawson Place uses the law firm of Anderson Hunter to funnel millions of public money just as G. Geoffrey Gibbs did with attorney Lin O’Dell inside the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam known as Whispering Pines. The scam that involved Dean Bellamy, a man murdered by Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Bellamy was threatening to expose many Judges and Commissioners involved in the guardian scam with attorneys Joseph Nappi Jr, Lin O’Dell and James Spargetis in Spokane.


Click below to how Dawson Place is nothing more than a shrill set up by Snohomish County Judges, Prosecutors and attorneys siphoning off million of public dollars.

For those of my readers who have been following the County’s malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, it’s  no  surprise that Dawson Place’s Prosecutor  Wallace Langbehn III was working inside Dawson Place when Snohomish County activist Lori Shavlik started piecing together the County Judges/Prosecutors/Attorneys sick little domestic spy ring also known now as Dawson Place.

Bigger question still remains unanswered: Where did the millions of public monies go?

 

In 2010, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell knew Lori Shavlik was getting close to exposing Dawson Place as a shrill to funnel public monies and spy on citizens.  Mark Roe and Adam Cornell needed to shut Ms. Shavlik up as she was starting to unravel Dawson Place as a shadow agency owned and operated by Snohomish County government.

Mark Roe and Adam Cornell decided the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to enlist the assistance of a known Brady Cop named David Fontenot. David Fontenot’s job was to find someone close to Ms. Shavlik to start a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Fontenot is as dirty as them, and had known all of the drug addicts, and one such drug addict Fontenot found worked inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Rebecca Bradshaw was well know to David Fontenot, because Ms. Bradshaw was a drug informant on Snohomish County’s payroll.

While at the same time Rebecca Bradshaw is on Snohomish County’s payroll, Ms Bradshaw was working in and stealing from Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon in the City of Snohomish.   Brady Cop David Fontenot knew this, and enlisted Ms. Bradshaw assistance in starting a fire behind a dryer unitinside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon.

The false trumped up criminal charges Snohomish County set into action came only after Ms. Shavlik had exposed Dawson Place for fraud, and a government shrill to steal taxpayer monies without accountability.

In 2014,  Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, known racketeering member, Franchasca Yahyavi tried Ms. Shavlik for first degree arson. Ms. Yahyavi, never disclosed that the lead detective  David Fontenot was a Brady Cop, and that the County’s main witness Rebecca Bradshaw was a paid informant.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik one juror was a highly educated Engineer who later said ” this was bullshit. There was nothing here.” Those of you who know me, know I am partial to engineers not only because my engineer is my most loved treasure, but because persons that are trained in hard sciences are critical thinkers who analysis even small pieces of evidence.

That Engineer saved Ms. Shavlik’s life by holding out for days until the Judge called it a deadlock jury.  Instead of the Prosecutors’ leaving well enough alone, Francesca Yadavvi recharged Ms. Shavlik in a second trial in February 2016.

The Gold Bar Reporter was in the audience watching as Brady Cop David Fontenot and Prosecutor Yahyavi paraded witness after witness on the stand to attest about what a bad business owner Ms. Shavlik was.  One witness named Dolly even told the jury that she was told by the Prosecutors that she would get money for her testimony.

In March 2016, 12 jurors acquitted Lori Shavlik of arson.

Early this year, Ms. Shavlik  started complaining that her insurance rates were over the roof. This prompted this question: have you looked at your criminal access searches and driving record from Washington State ?

When Lori Shavlik retrieved her driving record from the Washington State Department of Licensing she learned that Dawson Place Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III had entered false information into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, falsely claiming that she had plead guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

In a nutshell, Wallace Langbehn III entered into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, via NCIC, that Ms. Shavlik had plead guilty to giving alcohol to minors. False.

Wallace Langbehn III falsely entered a conviction record into Ms. Shavlik’s NCIC records and he did so while assigned to Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit 501 (3) (c). A shrill money laundering company to further the efforts of Dawson Place and its racketeering members. Mainly Snohomish County Prosecutors and Judges and two  mobsters and attorneys G. Geoffrey Gibbs and Michael Kenyon.

Does this fit the definition of racketeering crimes?

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (18 USC §§ 1961-1968) prohibits (1) acquiring, establishing, or operating an enterprise with illegally derived income, (2) acquiring or maintaining an interest in or control of an enterprise through illegal activity, and (3) using an enterprise to commit illegal acts (Extortion, Blackmail, Etc., 31A Am Jur 2d).

RICO defines “racketeering activity” as a long list of state and federal crimes. The federal crimes include bribery, various fraud offenses, gambling offenses, money laundering, a number of financial and economic crimes, obstructing justice or a criminal investigation, murder for hire, and sexual exploitation of children. The state crimes include murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, and drug crimes.

It defines a “pattern of racketeering activity” as at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after RICO became law and the last of which occurred within 10 years after the prior act.

“racketeering activity” means committing, attempting to commit, conspiring to commit, or intentionally aiding, soliciting, coercing, or intimidating another person to commit a specified list of felonies. These felonies include gambling activities, extortion, drug offenses, weapons offenses, murder, assault, prostitution, hazardous waste violations, securities violations, coercion, money laundering, arson, bribery, and forgery

“Pattern of racketeering activity” means engaging in at least two incidents of racketeering activity that (1) have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission or otherwise are interrelated by distinguished characteristics; (2) are not isolated incidents; (3) include at least one incident that occurred after October 1, 1982; and (4) occurred within five years of a prior incident of racketeering activity (CGS § 53-394(e)).

“Collusion” is not defined in either RICO, although the word “collusion” is used in a number of state contracting statutes. The Blacks Law Dictionary definition of “collusion” includes a “secret combination, conspiracy, or concert of action between two or more persons for fraudulent or deceitful purpose.” This type of conduct would appear to be covered by RICO 


 

Wallace Langbehn III, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Mike Kenyon, Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, and Snohomish County Judges were contacted and all declined comment.

“For the powerful, crimes are those that others commit” Noam Chomsky

Well, well, it’s no surprise, a couple more cockroaches from Snohomish County Washington government trying to obtain “political courtesy” to thwart criminal laws in their favor.

In late June 2018, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Christopher Dickinson was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.  He was found in the car outside the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office with his keys in the ignition, apparently waiting for his girlfriend, another Snohomish County employee, who was arrested for operating a motorboat on Lake Chelan while intoxicated.   

Making matters worse, Dickinson lied to the Chelan Sheriff’s Officer, denying he was driving, instead told officers that a friend drove.  After that didn’t work, “He began to demand that I acknowledge that he was a lawyer” a Sheriff’s Deputy said in his report.

Dickson’s blood alcohol content was 0.15 — about twice the legal limit – booked into the Chelan County Regional Justice Center in Wenatchee and later released.

 

Dickinson was initially placed on administrative leave pending an investigation at Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.  Dickinson’s arrest occurred while he was being paid by the taxpayers of Snohomish County to attend a conference in Lake Chelan.  With no surprise to those of us who actually report the news here in Washington State, the conference was sponsored by the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys. An organization in charge of training prosecutors; appears the organization is failing. 

Dickson said he was waiting for his girlfriend, who had been taken into custody about 12:45 a.m. on suspicion of boating under the influence. At the time of the arrest, Dickson had given his girlfriend legal advice immediately following her arrest to refuse a breathalyzer.

The 36-year-old woman had been arrested near South Lakeshore Road in Chelan,  after the boat she operated side swiped a dock.  Chelan County Sheriff’s officer said ” she was so drunk she could barely stand…” 

Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office placed Dickson on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation two weeks ago.  Yesterday Dickson was fired after Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe said ” All I can say is an incident took palce that left me disappointed and angry  at one person. ” Very strange since Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe he himself was arrested for drunk driving in King County 2008, arrested and booked, but managed to call in a favor from King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg to avoid jail.

According to King County Prosecutor’s Office, ” even first time drunk drivers in our county get one day in jail….”  Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe must be special, as he never served a single day in jail after pleading to drunk driving in King County Washington.

Brings us right back to the quote from America’s greatest political  philosopher’s “For the powerful, crimes are those that others commit.

 

Snohomish County Mark Roe is a hypocrite – more criminals in charge.

Definition of hypocrite

 

1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion

2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings

 

 

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me” Gold Bar’s Mayor Bill

Over the last year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem, a State Farm Agent, from Monroe Washington, has trying to clean up the polluted water from the City of Gold Bar.

Bill Clem State Farm

William Clem, Mayor of Gold Bar

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me”  William Clem was referring to Association of Washington Cities attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, and Amanda Butler


Early this year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem sat down for a one on one meeting with the Gold Bar Reporter to discuss the state of affairs inside Gold Bar. During this meeting, William Clem confirmed that the former Mayor Joe Beavers, a convicted felon from Texas, had misappropriated over $1,500,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water funds to hide email communication.

 

According to one council member, Snohomish County obtained through electronic means medical records on the Gold Bar Reporter’s family members, and copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, and disseminated those files via email from Snohomish County Law’s clerk Barbara Johnson and Crystal Hill in March 2009.

After Crystal Hill and terminated/disgraced Director of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington took the illegally obtained medical files, they copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, attempting to create a fake identity.  Then Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay had Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Rodney Rochan pass the fake identity off the NCIS Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX).

William Clem said ” the lawyers refuse to return our records to the City of Gold Bar, and I’m going to hire a new lawyer to obtain a subpoena and have Gold Bar’s records returned.”

In one case, involving Shavlik v Gold Bar, Snohomish County Superior Court, William Clem admitted that Gold Bar’s public records officer, Bonnie Jones did knowingly tamper with Gold Bar’s public records by removing metadata from email communication sent from Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill and a clerk at Snohomish Law.

Bonnie Jones, aka Bonnie Scruggs, aka Bonnie Dierkson is a convicted felon from California and Hawaii, who was hand picked by Association of Washington Cities (AWC) to tamper with and hide public records inside the City of Gold Bar.

When William Clem was asked about why AWC would want to hide email communication,  Clem said ” to limit liability .”  When Clem was asked where the City was hiding Gold Bar’s public records, he said ” at the lawyers office in Issaquah, Washington.”

Michael Kenyon’s Office is located at 11 S Front St, Issaquah Washington.

In 2009, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005) was engaged in several extramarital affairs with former Executive Aaron Reardon, John E Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former police chief. Once source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office said ” Adam Cornell  and Sean Reay were also fucking Crystal. She was doorknob.”  Crystal Hill’s extramarital affairs were all with married men.

Three months ago, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers turned over for the first time Crystal Hill’s ACCESS criminal history searches performed after she abused a six year old child in her car, plead to criminally harassing another, and after she plead guilty to and was arrested for bank fraud.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City canT get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes against Gold Bar, and federal taxpayers ( as Hill falsified FEMA contracts totaling over $100,000.00 ).

In February 2018, Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar illegally withheld 585 public records from the Gold Bar Reporter for over five years, and penalties and attorney fees and cost exceed $1.5 million dollars, and this is just one case.


 

After Gold Bar’s new Mayor and Monroe Washington State Farm Agent William Clem admitted to several of us over dinner that he was being threatened by AWC and its attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto, we soon learned why William Clem had every reason to be extorted.

When William Clem ran for Gold Bar’s uncontested Mayoral seat Clem listed his home address as Gold Bar.  But according to the Insurance Commission, William Clem’s home address is located in Everson Washington as of December 2017, not in Gold Bar as he claimed on his Public Disclosure filings and Insurance Commission filings listed Everson Washington in December 2017.

Once inside source said ” Bill was threatened more than once inside public emails by Shannon Ragonesi…” Another source said ” Bonnie Jones was placed inside to continue the efforts of tampering with public records for Joe Beavers and AWC. She was hand picked by Beavers after it was apparent that Linda Loen was too high to function.”  Linda Loen was Gold Bar’s Mayor from January 2014 to March 16, 2016. On March 16 2018, the day Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar and its public records officers violated Gold Bar Reporter’s rights to access public records by withholding public records for over five years, Linda Loen abruptly resigned as the Mayor of Gold Bar, abandoned her home in Gold Bar and purchased with cash a new home located in Aberdeen Washington.  Linda Loen was unemployed the entire time she lived in Gold Bar, but all of the sudden purchases a new house with cash, abandoning her home in Gold Bar ( that still remains vacate as of today). Sounds like a pay off from our good friends at AWC and its attorneys.

Why Attorney Michael Kenyon decided to hide Gold Bar’s public records was simple. Michael Kenyon had helped Crystal Hill’s married squeeze in covering up his rape of a 5 year child in Cowlitz County Washington in 1992.

The Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on Michael Kenyon’s assisting John E. Pennington with quashing criminal charges after he violently beat a third trimester pregnant Duvall Council member.
