Washington State Bar Association gives the “green light” for prosecutors to take and disseminate nude photos of county employee without her consent, overruling Washington State Legislature

In June 2018, Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay, Erdwin Okoloko, C. Matt Hunter, Robert Grant, Christopher Dickinson, Jon Cummings, and Kirk Mahjoubian made a conscious decision to commit a felony, i.e. taking picture of a intoxicated female co-worker unclothed, and then disseminated that picture to various persons misusing a county cell phone ( as Jon Cummings is seen texting that picture to others on his county issued cell phone).

Jon Cummings caught on camera disseminating the nude photos Robert Grant, Kirk Mahjoubian and C. Matt Hunter unlawfully took and disseminated of an intoxicated female co-worker


The above pictures showing that c. Matt Hunter, Robert Grant and Kirk Mahjoubian  (who unlawfully took the picture without the female’s consent), were obtained by the Gold Bar Reporter under RCW 42.56 ( the Public Records Act).

Imagine, four Snohomish County Prosecutors, assigned to prosecute sexual assault crimes (mainly against women and children) are still allowed to work as prosecutors, or even retain their WSBA law licenses, after this story was published.

But it gets even worse. As a result of public records we obtained above, the Gold Bar Reporter filed WSBA complaints against each one of the prosecutors listed herein, and Lead Investigator for the WSBA Marsha Matsumoto, dismissed the complaints claiming ‘ no crime was committed thus giving the “green light” for other prosecutors to commit the same felonies against women.

Marsha Matsumoto, lead counsel investigator for Washington State Bar Association, dismissed the complaints against Snohomish County Prosecutors, holding that there was no crime committed. Either she failed criminal law, or simply gave yet another county prosecutor the green light to commit crimes against women while the rest of public would have been charged with a felony
