10-02-12 Complaint filed with the Sheriff’s Department re: Alleged widespread corruption in bail/bond operations.

To the Honorable Lee Baca, Sheriff of Los Angeles County, by email.

Dear Sheriff Baca:

I am writing to file a new complaint and request its investigation by your good offices, in compliance with procedures spelled out by Los Angeles County Ombudsman, concerning alleged widespread corruption in bail/bond operations.

At least two cases came to my attention where individuals were informed that bail was set, and paid moneys and/or provided collaterals, while the online Inmate Information Center listed them as released on bail of $0.00. Moreover, in such cases the inmates were never able to obtain any record that documenting that funds were in fact received by the Sheriff’s Department for the bail.

One of these cases pertains to a senior attorney, Ronald Gottschalk, who was subject of my complaint, and your response to the Honorable Michael Antonovich, dated December 29, 2009.  In your response, you included a printout from the Inmate Information Center, which stated that Attorney Gottschalk was released on $0.00 bond.  In contrast, Attorney Gottschalk repeatedly stated, that he paid over $40,000 in first year bail, and in addition was forced to provide a lean of around half a million dollars on real property in his possession. However, Attorney Gottschalk was never provided with any record documenting that any funds were received by the Sheriff’s Department as bond pursuant to the Law of California.

In our conversation today, Attorney Gottschalk further warned me that the operations of bond services related to the Sheriff’s Department were controlled by organized crime, and that if I blew the whistle on the corruption of such operations, I was surely going to be killed.

Separately, I received today an email from Ms Stephanie Maxberry, Ombudsman of County of Los Angeles.  In such email she described to me the Sheriff’s Department Complaint process as follows:
After a complaint is filed, the person receives a letter from the Sheriff Department stating the matter is being investigated and a copy of their complaint on a form entitled, Watch Commanders Service Comment Report.  In the upper right hand corner of this form is a 5 or 6 digit number that can be referenced when calling or writing about the complaint.  At the conclusion of the complaint process, the person receives another letter informing him/her of the outcome. 
I therefore request that you accept this letter as a complaint and issue Watch Commander’s Service Comment Report with a 5 or 6 digit number at its upper right hand corner.

10-02-12 Denuncia presentada ante el nuevo Departamento del Sheriff: Presunta corrupción generalizada en libertad bajo fianza y operaciones de bonos.
A la Honorable Lee Baca, Sheriff del Condado de Los Angeles, por correo electrónico.
Estimado Sheriff Baca:
Le escribo para presentar una nueva denuncia y su investigación por petición de sus buenos oficios, de conformidad con los procedimientos estipulados en Condado de Los Angeles Defensor del Pueblo, acerca de la corrupción generalizada en la supuesta libertad bajo fianza y operaciones de bonos.
Al menos dos casos me llamó la atención que los individuos se les informó que la fianza fue fijada, y pagó las sumas y / o garantías colaterales, mientras que la línea de Internos Centro de Información figuran como la libertad bajo fianza de $ 0,00. Además, en tales casos, los internos no fueron capaces de obtener la constancia de que la documentación de que los fondos fueron efectivamente recibidas por el Departamento del Sheriff de la libertad bajo fianza.
Uno de estos casos corresponde a un abogado senior, Ronald Gottschalk, quien fue objeto de mi queja, y su respuesta a la Honorable Michael Antonovich, de 29 de diciembre de 2009. En su respuesta, que incluyó una impresión del Centro de Información de los Reclusos, que declaró que el Procurador Gottschalk fue lanzado en 0,00 dólares de bonos. En contraste, el Procurador Gottschalk declarado en repetidas ocasiones, que pagó más de $ 40.000 en libertad bajo fianza el primer año y, además, se vio obligado a ofrecer una inclinación de alrededor de medio millón de dólares en bienes inmuebles en su poder. Sin embargo, el Procurador Gottschalk nunca se le dio ningún registro que documente los fondos fueron recibidos por el Departamento del Sheriff de bonos como de conformidad con la Ley de California.
En nuestra conversación de hoy, el Procurador Gottschalk más me advirtió de que las operaciones de los servicios de bonos relacionados con el Departamento del Sheriff fueron controlados por la delincuencia organizada, y que si hizo la denuncia sobre la corrupción de este tipo de operaciones, era sin duda va a ser asesinado.
Por otra parte, he recibido hoy un correo electrónico de la Sra. Stephanie Maxberry, Defensor del Pueblo de Condado de Los Ángeles. En dicho correo electrónico que me describió el Departamento del Sheriff del proceso de la queja de la siguiente manera:Después de una presentación de la queja, la persona recibe una carta del Departamento del Sheriff que se indique el asunto está siendo investigado y una copia de su queja en un formulario titulado Ver comandantes Servicio Informe de comentarios. En la esquina superior derecha de esta forma es un número de dos dígitos 5 o 6 que se puede hacer referencia al llamar o escribir acerca de la denuncia. En la conclusión del proceso de queja, la persona recibe otra carta le informa de los resultados.Por tanto, pido que usted acepte esta carta como una queja y servicio de vigilancia del comandante Informe de comentarios con un número de 5 ó 6 dígitos en la esquina superior de su mano derecha.
Respetuosamente,Fecha: 12 de Febrero 2010La Verne, en el condado de Los Ángeles, California,

10-02-12 [Englinsh y Castellano] Jerry Brown's spot blindness regarding widespread judicial corruption in Los Angeles County// La ceguera terreno Jerry Brown en relación con la corrupción judicial generalizada en Condado de Los Angeles



San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos addresses the media at a news conference with state Attorney General Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr. in San Bernardino on Wednesday. (February 10, 2010)

Subject: Re: Jerry Brown is appalled by corruption in San Bernardino  County...  has never seen anything like that...  Gubernatorial  candidate suffering from a blind spot when it comes to LA County judicial  corruption ...

Dear Ken and John:

I am forwarding to you the note below at the suggestion of my friend Brad.  Please let me know if you have interest in discussion of refusal of Jerry Brown from 2007 to this date, to address overwhelming evidence of widespread corruption of the judges of the LA Superior Court. 
  • My data pertains to complaints filed directly to his attention, restricted delivery, including large volume of evidence of racketeering by judges of the LA Superior Court (similar to what was reported regarding Judge Michael Welch in San Bernardino County). 
  • Due to my insistence, Jerry Brown eventually appointed Attorney Tom Greene to review the matter.
  • Attorney Tom Greene was described to me as Jerry Brown's personal assistant and a political appointee, who had previously been career staff at the same office.
  • Mr Tom Greene, purported to review hundreds of records that I filed as evidence.
  • A minuscule fraction of that evidence was sufficient for the highly decorated FBI veteran, James Wedick, to issue his opinion letter "... fraud being committed..." and " ... investigation should be immediately instituted..." (linked below).
  • Mr Tom Greene also interviewed me by phone as part of his review process, for about an hour.
  • In the course of that phone interview I discovered that Mr Greene was acquainted or friendly with at least one of the judges (about a dozen of them were named in my complaint and evidence), which I alleged were racketeering in real estate litigations. 
  • I therefore, on the spot, on the phone, and immediately afterwards also in writing, requested that Mr Greene file a statement on the record regarding conflicts, if any, alternatively - that he recuse himself from any involvement in the case.
  • Mr Tom Greene refused to do either. 
  • Mr Greene proceeded to issue an opinion letter on behalf of Office of Jerry Brown, that the matters that I was raising were a personal matter, and that California Attorney General Brown must not get involved in such matters.
  • Needless to say, events that took place later fully confirmed my allegations.  Through Richard Fine's efforts - widespread corruption of the judges of the LA Superior Court was fully documented. 
  • The widespread corruption documented by Fine required the passage and the signing into law on February 20, 2009 of "retroactive immunities" (in fact - pardons), while the California constitution prohibits retroactive laws.
  • Such law was passed in violation of the California Senate rules - with no discussion on the floor, and no referral to committee.
  • Such law was passed within less than a week through the payment of $60,000 by the LA Superior Court Judges to a lobbyist.
  • After the passage and signing of SBX-2-11 law I requested confirmation from the Office of Attorney General Brown - That Jerry Brown never ever made any public pronouncement, either verbal or written, regarding the validity and circumstances of the passage of SBX-2-11.
  • The office of Jerry Brown refused to respond.
This message was limited to describing the general outline of evidence for cover up by Jerry Brown on overwhelming evidence of widespread corruption of judges of the LA Superior Court.  Evidence regarding other subjected listed below in my email to LA Times reporter is also available upon request.

Truly,

Alexandra Zavis
LA Times Reporter

Dear Ms Zavis:

Congratulation for your LA Times report on government corruption in San Bernardino County (copied below). In the Daily Bulletin, Jerry Brown, California Attorney General, and Governor wannabe was quoted as appalled by the corruption.  In the LA Times Jerry Brown has never seen corruption like this before...  Of interest, while other, smaller news papers reported on the scandal for months, and demanded prosecution of the perps, the LA Times was the last to report, only after indictments were filed, and then again - pushed it to the Local Section.

Let me offer you some news tips, it looks like the LA Times could use them:

1) Jerry Brown is definitely myopic, possibly suffering from spot blindness when it comes to government and judicial corruption in LA County.  Given his gubernatorial ambitions, this health condition is definitely newsworthy, and of public interest.  The LA Times seems to be suffering from the same or similar condition as well.  LA Times ran an acclaimed series on corruption in Las Vegas, and is now reporting corruption in San Bernardino, but when it comes to LA County, LA Times vision gets awfully blurred.
If you need evidence of cover up of judicial corruption in LA County by Jerry Brown, I could forward the data to you.

2) Michael Welch, former Presiding Judge of San Bernardino Superior Court, was reported by San Bernardino newspapers months ago as tied to numerous real estate fraud cases. However, neither Jerry Brown, nor the LA Times seem to have ever seen or heard anything of that matter. 
If you need help in covering the story of Judge Michael Welch, I could forward the data to you.

3) Judges of the LA Superior Court, like Jacqueline Connor, John Segal, and Terry Friedman, are likewise tied to real estate fraud cases by former President of the LA County Bar Association, Attorney David Pasternak. Such fraud was opined by a highly decorated veteran FBI agent.
[1]  In case you have interest, I could provide you with a large series of similar cases by David Pasternak and the judges of the LA Superior Court. The evidence for widespread corruption of the judges of the LA Superior Court in simply indisputable. 
If you need help in finding the data in re: real estate fraud cases by judges of the LA Superior Court, and the unique role of Attorney David Pasternak in propelling LA County to be distinguished by FBI as "the epicenter of the epidemic of real estate fraud" I could forward the data to you.

4) Former US Prosecutor Richard Fine is falsely hospitalized for almost a year. However, he has no ailment.  The LA Times reported that he was arrested by Judge David Yaffe at the LA Superior Court, in the City of Los Angeles.  However, Sheriff Lee Baca is adamant on falsely claiming that Richard Fine was arrested by the non-existent Municipal Court of the City of San Pedro, even in response to inquiry by LA County Supervisor, the Honorable Michael Antonovich.  The Sheriff refused to allow access to California Public Records which were the warrant and the booking record, claiming that California Public Records Act did no require him to produce records which did not exist.
If you need help regarding figuring out the corruption in the story of Richard Fine, I have the data ready for you.

5) Thousand of Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) were documented during the Rampart scandal investigation (1998-2000) not by the LA Times, but by the PBS series LAPD Blues.  An LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel report in 2006, reported that by and large they remained falsely imprisoned.  It also quoted judges of the LA Superior Court as some of the main opponents of the release of these innocent persons.  It is a case of Human Rights abuse of historic proportion, which was opined already a decade ago by Erwin Chemerinsky, today Dean of UC Irvine Law School, as the worst of its kind in US History, and requiring examination of conduct of the LA Superior Court judges. However, the LA Times forgot to report about the story for a full decade. 
If you need any help regarding the story of the ongoing false imprisonment of thousands of Rampart FIPs, please let me know.

Congratulations again for your incisive, investigative reporting, and let and let me know if you would like more data on any of the stories above.

Truly,

Le remito a usted en la siguiente nota a la sugerencia de mi amigo Brad. Por favor, hágamelo saber si usted tiene interés en la discusión de la negativa de Jerry Brown, de 2007 a esta fecha, para hacer frente a la abrumadora evidencia de la corrupción generalizada de los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles. Mis datos se refiere a las denuncias presentadas directamente a su atención, entrega restringida, incluyendo gran cantidad de pruebas de extorsión por parte de jueces de la Corte Superior LA (similar a lo que se informó en relación con el juez Michael Welch en el Condado de San Bernardino). Debido a mi insistencia, Jerry Brown finalmente nombrado fiscal Tom Greene para examinar la cuestión. El abogado Tom Greene me fue descrito como asistente personal de Jerry Brown, y un cargo político, que había sido el personal de carrera en la misma oficina. Sr. Tom Greene, supuestamente para revisar cientos de expedientes que presentó como prueba. Una fracción minúscula de que la evidencia fue suficiente para que el veterano condecorado del FBI, James Wedick, la expedición de su carta de opinión "... el fraude que se cometen ..." y "... la investigación debe ser iniciado de inmediato ..." (vinculada a continuación). Sr. Tom Greene también me entrevistó por teléfono como parte de su proceso de revisión, durante aproximadamente una hora. En el curso de la entrevista por teléfono, descubrí que el Sr. Greene conocía o de amistad con al menos uno de los jueces (alrededor de una docena de ellos fueron nombrados en mi queja y la evidencia), que fueron supuestas estafas en litigios de bienes raíces. Por lo tanto, en el acto, en el teléfono, e inmediatamente después, también por escrito, solicitó que el Sr. Greene, presentar una declaración en el expediente sobre los conflictos, en su caso, alternativamente, - que recusarse de cualquier participación en el caso. Sr. Tom Greene se negó a hacer bien. Sr. Greene procedió a emitir una carta de opinión en nombre de Oficina de Jerry Brown, que las cuestiones que se estaba planteando una cuestión personal, y que la Fiscal General de California Brown no debe involucrarse en estos asuntos. Huelga decir que los acontecimientos que tuvieron lugar más tarde confirmado plenamente mis alegaciones. Gracias a los esfuerzos de Richard Fine - la corrupción generalizada de los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles era plenamente documentado. La corrupción generalizada documentada por Fine requiere la aprobación y la firma en ley el 20 de febrero 2009 de la "inmunidad retroactiva" (de hecho - el indulto), mientras que la Constitución de California prohíbe las leyes con carácter retroactivo. Esta ley fue aprobada en violación de las reglas del Senado de California - sin discusión en el suelo, y no la remisión a la comisión. Esta ley fue aprobada en menos de una semana a través del pago de 60.000 dólares por el LA Jueces de la Corte Superior a un grupo de presión. Después de la aprobación y firma de SBX-2-11 la ley que pidió la confirmación de la Oficina del Procurador General de Brown - Que Jerry Brown jamás hecho ninguna declaración pública, ya sea verbal o escrita, acerca de la validez y las circunstancias del paso del SBX-2 -11. La oficina de Jerry Brown se negó a responder. Este mensaje se limita a describir las líneas generales de las pruebas para cubrir por Jerry Brown en la evidencia abrumadora de la corrupción generalizada de los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles. Pruebas en relación con otros sujetos que figuran a continuación en mi correo electrónico a LA periodista del Times también está disponible bajo petición.

Alexandra Záviš LA Times Reporter
Estimada Sra. Záviš:
Felicitación por su informe del LA Times sobre la corrupción gubernamental en el condado de San Bernardino (con copia a continuación). En el Boletín Diario, Jerry Brown, procurador general de California, y aspirante a gobernador, citado por la consternación por la corrupción.En el LA Times, Jerry Brown nunca ha visto la corrupción como esto antes ... De interés, mientras que otros, los papeles más pequeños de noticias sobre el escándalo durante meses, y pidió el enjuiciamiento de los perps, el Los Angeles Times fue el último informe, sólo después de que las acusaciones fueron presentadas, y luego otra vez - lo empujó a la Sección Local.
Permítanme ofrecer algunos consejos de noticias, parece que el Los Angeles Times podría utilizar los mismos:
1) Jerry Brown es definitivamente miope, posiblemente sufren de ceguera lugar cuando se trata de gobierno y la corrupción judicial en Condado de Los Ángeles. Teniendo en cuenta sus ambiciones a la gobernación, esta condición de salud es, sin duda de interés periodístico, y de interés público. El LA Times parece estar sufriendo de la misma condición o similares, así. LA Times publicó una aclamada serie sobre la corrupción en Las Vegas, y ahora es la presentación de informes de corrupción en San Bernardino, pero cuando se trata de Condado de Los Ángeles, LA Times pone terriblemente visión borrosa. Si usted necesita pruebas de encubrimiento de la corrupción judicial en el Condado de Los Ángeles por Jerry Brown, podría transmitir los datos a usted.
2) Michael Welch, el ex Juez Presidente del Tribunal Superior de San Bernardino, se informó por los periódicos de San Bernardino meses atado a numerosos casos de fraude de bienes raíces. Sin embargo, ni Jerry Brown, ni el LA Times parece haber visto ni oído nada de ese asunto. Si usted necesita ayuda en la cobertura de la historia del juez Michael Welch, podría transmitir los datos a usted.
3) Los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles, como Jacqueline Connor, John Segal, y Terry Friedman, también están vinculados a casos de fraude de bienes raíces por ex Presidente de la LA County Bar Association, el fiscal David Pasternak. Este tipo de fraude se opinó por un agente del FBI condecorado veterano de guerra. [1] En caso de tener interés, que podría proporcionarle una amplia serie de casos similares por David Pasternak y los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles. La evidencia de la corrupción generalizada de los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles en simplemente indiscutible. Si necesita ayuda para encontrar los datos en re: los casos de fraude de bienes raíces por los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Angeles, y el papel único de abogado David Pasternak en impulsar Condado de Los Ángeles para ser distinguido por el FBI como "el epicentro de la epidemia de bienes inmuebles fraude "que podría transmitir los datos a usted.
4) El ex Fiscal EE.UU. Richard Fine es falsamente hospitalizado durante casi un año. Sin embargo, no tiene ninguna dolencia. El Los Angeles Times informó de que fue detenido por el juez David Yaffe en la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles, en la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Sin embargo, el Sheriff Lee Baca insiste en afirmar falsamente que Richard Fine fue detenido por la inexistencia de la Corte Municipal de la Ciudad de San Pedro, incluso en respuesta a la pregunta de LA County Supervisor, el Honorable Michael Antonovich. El alguacil se negó a permitir el acceso a los Registros Públicos de California que estaban a la orden y el registro de la reserva, alegando que la Ley de Registros Públicos de California, no hizo lo necesario para producir documentos que no existían. Si necesita ayuda para averiguar sobre la corrupción en la historia de Richard Fine, tengo los datos preparados para usted.
5) Miles de CPI de Rampart (secuestrada personas) fueron documentadas durante la investigación escándalo de Rampart (1998-2000) no por el Los Angeles Times, sino por la serie de PBS policía de Los Angeles Azules. Un policía de Los Angeles "Blue Ribbon" Informe del Grupo de Revisión en 2006, informó de que, en general se mantuvieron secuestrada. También citó a los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Angeles ya que algunos de los principales opositores de la liberación de estas personas inocentes. Se trata de un caso de abuso de Derechos Humanos de proporciones históricas, que se opinó que ya hace una década por Erwin Chemerinsky, hoy Decano de la Facultad de Derecho de la UC Irvine, como la peor de su tipo en la historia de EE.UU., y requieren un examen de la conducta del Superior LA jueces de la Corte. Sin embargo, el LA Times se olvidó de informar acerca de la historia de toda una década. Si usted necesita cualquier ayuda en relación con la historia de la privación de la libertad en curso de miles de Rampart FIP, por favor hágamelo saber.
Felicitaciones de nuevo por su informe incisivo, de investigación, y dejar y quiero saber si usted quisiera más información sobre cualquiera de las historias anteriores.
En verdad,

3) Judges of the LA Superior Court, like Jacqueline Connor, John Segal, and Terry Friedman, are likewise tied to real estate fraud cases by former President of the LA County Bar Association, Attorney David Pasternak. Such fraud was opined by a highly decorated veteran FBI agent.
[1]  In case you have interest, I could provide you with a large series of similar cases by David Pasternak and the judges of the LA Superior Court. The evidence for widespread corruption of the judges of the LA Superior Court in simply indisputable. 
If you need help in finding the data in re: real estate fraud cases by judges of the LA Superior Court, and the unique role of Attorney David Pasternak in propelling LA County to be distinguished by FBI as "the epicenter of the epidemic of real estate fraud" I could forward the data to you.

4) Former US Prosecutor Richard Fine is falsely hospitalized for almost a year. However, he has no ailment.  The LA Times reported that he was arrested by Judge David Yaffe at the LA Superior Court, in the City of Los Angeles.  However, Sheriff Lee Baca is adamant on falsely claiming that Richard Fine was arrested by the non-existent Municipal Court of the City of San Pedro, even in response to inquiry by LA County Supervisor, the Honorable Michael Antonovich.  The Sheriff refused to allow access to California Public Records which were the warrant and the booking record, claiming that California Public Records Act did no require him to produce records which did not exist.
If you need help regarding figuring out the corruption in the story of Richard Fine, I have the data ready for you.

5) Thousand of Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) were documented during the Rampart scandal investigation (1998-2000) not by the LA Times, but by the PBS series LAPD Blues.  An LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel report in 2006, reported that by and large they remained falsely imprisoned.  It also quoted judges of the LA Superior Court as some of the main opponents of the release of these innocent persons.  It is a case of Human Rights abuse of historic proportion, which was opined already a decade ago by Erwin Chemerinsky, today Dean of UC Irvine Law School, as the worst of its kind in US History, and requiring examination of conduct of the LA Superior Court judges. However, the LA Times forgot to report about the story for a full decade. 
If you need any help regarding the story of the ongoing false imprisonment of thousands of Rampart FIPs, please let me know.

Congratulations again for your incisive, investigative reporting, and let and let me know if you would like more data on any of the stories above.

Truly,

Prosecutors allege biggest corruption scandal in San Bernardino County history

Joe Nelson, Staff Writer

Prosecutors charged two former county officials with conspiracy, bribery and extortion on Wednesday in what was described as the "biggest corruption scandal in San Bernardino County's history."

Former Assessor Bill Postmus, 38, of Victorville and former Assistant Assessor Jim Erwin, 47, of Highland were arrested by district attorney's investigators early Wednesday morning and booked into jail in lieu of $225,000 bail and $380,000 bail, respectively.

At a news conference at the District Attorney's Office, District Attorney Michael A. Ramos and state Attorney General Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr. described a wide-ranging conspiracy to secure a $102 million legal settlement to a land-use dispute between the county and Rancho Cucamonga developer Colonies Partners LP in November 2006.

"What is significant here is the most appalling corruption case in decades, certainly in the history of San Bernardino County and maybe California itself," Brown said at the news conference. "Individuals corrupted public office and were able to grab more than $100 million of the taxpayers' money through this scheme."

Prosecutors also identified as uncharged co-conspirators five John Does: two general partners of Colonies Partners LP, a public relations consultant for the developer, a county supervisor and a chief of staff for a county supervisor.

The complaint alleges that Colonies Partners bribed Postmus and the unnamed county supervisor with promises of $100,000 contributions in exchange for approving a settlement offer to end a four-year legal battle.

Prosecutors also allege the developer promised $100,000 to the unnamed chief of staff for delivering Supervisor Gary Ovitt's vote and vowed to take care of Postmus for the remainder of his political career if he voted for the settlement, according to the 19-page criminal complaint.

Postmus, Ovitt and Supervisor Paul Biane voted to approve the settlement in November 2006, ending an acrimonious legal battle over land rights and responsibility for flood-control improvements on the Colonies retail-residential development in Upland.

An attorney for Colonies co-managing partner Jeff Burum dismissed the complaint as baseless and said Wednesday that the settlement was fair and appropriate.

Erwin is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit a crime, two counts of corrupt influencing, two counts of offering a bribe to a supervisor, two counts of extortion, one count of misappropriation of public funds and one count of forgery. He faces a maximum of 12 years in prison

His attorney, Rajan R. Maline, called the allegations "baseless" and an act of "political grandstanding."

"I think that everyone's aware that these allegations are baseless, and they chose to do a press conference, coordinate it with the Attorney General's Office and arrest Erwin all in the same day," Maline said. "But at the end of the day, we're still left with these baseless charges, and we're going to contest these charges."

He said he was working to post bond on Erwin's bail, and expected Erwin to be released from custody by midnight Wednesday.

In March, Erwin was charged with 10 felony counts of perjury and failing to report about $15,000 worth of gifts he allegedly received from Burum in January 2007.

Postmus was charged Wednesday with five new felony counts, one count of conspiracy to commit a crime, two counts of bribery, one count of conflict of interest and one count of misappropriation of public funds. He faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. He posted bail about 6 p.m. Wednesday and was released.

His attorney, Stephen Levine, could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

On Jan. 15, 2009, Postmus was charged with grand theft, misappropriation of public funds, perjury and drug possession in connection with a scandal at the Assessor's Office in which he was accused of running a taxpayer-funded political operation on county time.

At the time of his arrest Wednesday, Postmus was allegedly found in possession of methamphetamine, an addiction he said he has been battling for the past four years.

District attorney's spokeswoman Susan Mickey said prosecutors will await a lab analysis of the suspected methamphetamine before deciding whether to add another drug possession charge to Postmus' criminal case.

The criminal complaint listed 45 overt acts, beginning in 2005 with a trip Postmus took to China during which he met with a Colonies partner, and ending with a forgery allegedly committed by Erwin in 2008.

"The overt acts will detail the threats, the extortion, the inducements and the bribery," Ramos said.

None of the five unnamed co-conspirators have been charged because prosecutors do not feel they have gathered enough evidence to prove those cases beyond a reasonable doubt, Ramos said.

The investigation, however, is far from over, he added.

"I want to make this very, very clear today: This is an ongoing investigation and things can change as to those uncharged co-conspirators," Ramos said.

In a statement issued Wednesday, attorney John Vandevelde, who represents Burum, said Ramos and Brown have failed to present any evidence of wrongdoing on his client's part.

"While today's press conference was long on insinuation and long on political posturing, it was woefully short of evidence or supporting facts. This is baseless character assassination fueled by political ambition and masquerading as legal argument," Vandevelde said. "Jeff Burum has done absolutely nothing wrong and there isn't a shred of evidence to the contrary."

According to the complaint:

In September 2005, Postmus met with a Colonies executive during a trade mission to China, where Postmus was provided with meals, entertainment and the services of a prostitute. The Colonies executive promised to take care of Postmus for the rest of his political career if he would support a settlement of the Colonies lawsuit.

In 2006, county voters were presented with Measure P, which, if passed, would impose term limits for supervisors and raise the salaries of county supervisors from $99,000 to $152,000. Colonies Partners bankrolled a campaign against the measure to coerce a county supervisor to support a settlement.

Between January 2006 and November 2006, a Colonies co-conspirator hired private investigators to go through Postmus' trash to find incriminating information that could be used to pressure Postmus to vote in favor of the settlement.

Between January 2006 and November 2006, at the Colonies' direction, Erwin created political mailers for the assessor's race depicting candidate Postmus' addiction to drugs and homosexuality. The mailers were an attempt to influence Postmus, who at the time was still chairman of the Board of Supervisors, to vote in favor of the settlement.

Between January 2006 and November 2006, Erwin created political mailers in opposition to Measure P that asserted a county supervisor had excessive debt and was unable to pay his bills. The mailers were to be used to influence the supervisor to vote in favor of the settlement.

While he is not named in the complaint, it was Supervisor Paul Biane who authored Measure P and led the campaign for supervisor term limits and pay raises.

In a statement Wednesday, Biane said the district attorney's allegations about "some type of threat against me influencing the outcome of the election doesn't add up.

"Ultimately, the voters approved the initiative. There has not been and never will be any threat or inducement that has been or can be used to influence my decisions and actions as (an) elected official," Biane said.

Within six months of the Colonies settlement, Colonies contributed $400,000 to political action committees tied to the three supervisors who voted in favor of the settlement and to a political action committee operated by Erwin, who served as an intermediary on behalf of Colonies and helped shepherd the settlement, according to the complaint.

Mark Kirk, Ovitt's chief of staff, ran one of the political action committees and took a $20,000 consultant fee once the contribution was received, according to campaign finance records.

Kirk on Wednesday referred questions to Ovitt and his attorney, Paul Grech.

Ovitt refused to answer reporters' questions Wednesday, opting instead to issue a prepared statement.

"My decision to support the Colonies settlement was based entirely on my own analysis of the facts presented by the county's attorneys. No one at any time, including my chief of staff, attempted to influence my decision or had any influence over my decision," Ovitt said. "I supported the Colonies settlement because I believed and still believe that continuing to fight in court could very well have resulted in a judgement against the county far beyond the settlement."

He said he has the "utmost confidence" in Kirk, that Kirk did not engage in any improper activities and would continue to serve as his chief of staff.

Grech gave Ramos and Brown credit for proceeding cautiously and not identifying the suspected co-conspirators by name.

"In cases where the proof is sketchy, it's very easy to name people who are innocent," Grech said. "The evidence is going to play out as it's going to play out."

In his statement, Biane said the size of the Colonies settlement was "daunting" and one of the most difficult things he's had to do as a county supervisor.

"However, I could not justify continuing to pay legal fees and risk additional unfavorable court rulings that could result in a judgment the San Bernardino County Flood Control District could not afford to pay," he said.

County spokesman David Wert said Ramos and Brown presented a lot of information on Wednesday that will take the county some time to digest. However, he said the county has a proven track record of suing to recover funds lost due to corruption.

For example, the county recovered more than $35 million from the fallout of the scandal in the late 1990s involving former county administrative officers James Hlawek, Harry Mays and Norcal Waste Systems.

"The county will continue to aggressively pursue instances in which taxpayer money has been lost to corruption," Wert said.

Who is John Doe?

The complaint filed against former county supervisor-turned-assessor Bill Postmus and former assistant assessor and supervisorial chief of staff Jim Erwin alleges a widespread conspiracy in which executives of Rancho Cucamonga-based Colonies Partners LP conspired with top county officials to secure a $102 million settlement to a Colonies lawsuit against the county.

Who is John Doe? While Bill Postmus and Jim Erwin are the only individuals charged with crimes on Wednesday, the complaint against them includes allegations involving five others who are not identified by name and who are not charged with any crimes:

John Doe No. 1 and John Doe No. 2 are described in the complaint as general partners of Colonies Partners LP. The allegations involving them include bribery, extortion and other inducements to secure a settlement to the Colonies lawsuit against the county. Doe No. 1 is alleged to have hosted Erwin on a trip to New York in January 2007.

Implication: In a separate complaint, prosecutors have charged Erwin with perjury for failing to properly report the trip in his statements of economic interest as a gift from Colonies co-managing partner Jeff Burum. Burum's attorney dismissed Wednesday's complaint as "baseless character assassination" and said Burum has done nothing wrong.

John Doe No. 3 is described as a media consultant for John Doe No. 1 and John Doe No. 2 who traveled with Erwin and Doe No. 1 on the trip to New York in January 2007.

Implication: In a previous interview, public relations specialist Patrick O'Reilly acknowledged being present on the New York trip but denied any wrongdoing.

John Doe No. 4 is described as a county supervisor's chief of staff who allegedly accepted a $100,000 bribe via a political action committee in return for delivering Supervisor Gary Ovitt's vote for the Colonies settlement.

Implication: Ovitt's chief of staff, Mark Kirk, was involved with a PAC that received $100,000 from Colonies. Kirk on Wednesday referred questions to Ovitt, who said he has the "utmost confidence" in Kirk, and that Kirk did not engage in any improper activities.

John Doe No. 5: A county supervisor who voted with Postmus and Ovitt to approve the Colonies settlement in November 2006.

Implication: The only other supervisor to vote in favor of the settlement was Paul Biane, who said in a statement Wednesday that the Colonies settlement "was one of the most difficult things I've had to do as a county supervisor." However, Biane said, he could not justify continuing the legal battle after the county had suffered several setbacks in court.

Former San Bernardino County supervisor arrested on corruption charges

February 10, 2010 |  2:41 pm

Former San Bernardino County Supervisor William Postmus was arrested Wednesday on charges of helping to negotiate an allegedly corrupt settlement worth $102 million between the county and a developer.

Also arrested was James Erwin, who later worked with Postmus in the county assessor's office.

"These individuals engaged in conspiracy, corruption and bribery that cost San Bernardino taxpayers more than $100 million," said Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown, whose office is assisting the San Bernardino County district attorney's office with the investigation. "This is one of the most appalling corruption cases ever seen in California, and we will aggressively pursue this conspiracy until all of the facts are exposed."

County spokesman David Wert said officials were reviewing the information provided Wednesday by Brown and District Atty. Michael Ramos.

"The county has a proven track record of aggressively seeking the recovery of taxpayer money that is lost through corruption," Wert said.

The accusations resulted from a political corruption probe in San Bernardino County that uncovered evidence of bribery, extortion, theft, forgery and using county staff to do political work. Postmus and Erwin were already named in a complaint alleging criminal activity in the assessor's office, which Postmus headed from January 2007 until his resignation in February 2009 after authorities said they had found methamphetamine in his home.

According to prosecutors, Rancho Cucamonga developer Colonies Partners filed a lawsuit against the county in 2002, challenging the local government's easement rights and seeking to recover $23.5 million it had spent on flood-control improvements on its property. Four years later, against the advice of county counsel and private attorneys, the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to approve a settlement of $102 million with the developer, prosecutors said.

In a complaint filed Tuesday in San Bernardino County Superior Court, prosecutors allege Postmus accepted a $100,000 bribe to vote for the settlement and steer it through the board, which he chaired in 2006. They say the money was deposited in two political action committees, the Inland Empire PAC and Conservatives for a Republican Majority, which Postmus allegedly controlled.

Prosecutors say Postmus then transferred $50,000 from the Inland Empire PAC into his campaign account and used some of the funds for personal meals and entertainment.

According to the complaint, Colonies also gave Erwin $100,000, which was deposited into a PAC he allegedly controlled, the Committee for Effective Government. Prosecutors said Erwin, who acted as an intermediary between the company and the board, created political mailers depicting Postmus as a drug addict and homosexual to blackmail him into voting for the settlement.

In addition to the bribe, Erwin is accused of accepting other gifts, including a private jet trip to New York, meals, lodging, entertainment, prostitutes and a watch. Erwin is facing charges of perjury for failing to report those gifts after he was appointed assistant assessor in 2007. In September 2008, he was named chief of staff for Supervisor Neil Derry.

Prosecutors are also investigating two more alleged bribes of $100,000 each, and more arrests are possible, Brown said.

Erwin was charged with nine felony counts, including conspiracy, corruption , bribery, extortion, misappropriation of public funds and forgery. If convicted on all charges, he faces up to 12 years in prison. Postmus faces up to eight years in prison, if convicted on five felony counts, including conspiracy, accepting a bribe, conflict of interest and misappropriation of public funds.

The arraignment for both men is scheduled Thursday.

February 11, 2010
Former San Bernardino County Supervisor Bill Postmus and the county's former assistant assessor were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of accepting bribes to push for a $102-million settlement between the county and a developer, state and county prosecutors said.

It was the second time that Postmus and James Erwin had been arrested in connection with a political corruption probe in the county that has uncovered evidence of bribery, extortion, theft, forgery and use of the assessor's staff to do political work.

"I've never seen corruption like this before, where a Board of Supervisors is induced through the payment of $400,000 to various individuals to vote [to spend] $102 million of taxpayers' money when they should have kept that money for the people of San Bernardino," said state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown, whose office is assisting the county district attorney's office with the investigation.

According to a complaint filed Tuesday in San Bernardino County Superior Court, Colonies Partners filed suit in 2002 challenging the county's easement rights over a flood control basin in Upland and seeking to recover $23.5 million that Colonies had spent on the property. Four years later, against the advice of county counsel and other attorneys, supervisors voted 3 to 2 to approve the settlement, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors contend that Postmus accepted $100,000 from the developer for his vote in support of the settlement. They say the money was funneled through two political action committees that he secretly controlled.

Postmus then transferred $50,000 from one of the committees into his campaign account, using some of the funds for personal meals and entertainment, prosecutors say.

According to the complaint, Colonies gave Erwin $100,000, which was deposited into a political action committee he allegedly controlled. When Postmus was running for assessor in 2006, prosecutors say, Erwin created political mailers depicting the supervisor as a drug addict and homosexual to blackmail him into accepting the bribe and voting for the settlement.

In addition to money, Erwin is accused of accepting gifts such as a private jet trip to New York, prostitutes and a watch for his intermediary role. He was earlier charged with perjury for allegedly failing to report those gifts after he was appointed assistant assessor in 2007. In September 2008, Erwin was named chief of staff for Supervisor Neil Derry, a position he no longer holds.

Postmus became assessor in January 2007 but resigned a year later after authorities said they had found methamphetamine in his home. The same drug was allegedly found in Postmus' home when he was taken into custody Wednesday, said Susan Mickey, spokeswoman for the district attorney's office.

The attorneys for Postmus and Erwin accused prosecutors of "grandstanding" for arresting their clients and calling a news conference when both men have been appearing in court regularly on the previous corruption charges.

"There is no truth to these allegations," said Rajan Maline, who represents Erwin. "We are going to be contesting them vigorously."

Stephen Levine, who represents Postmus, said he expects that his client will also plead not guilty.

If convicted on all the new charges, Erwin faces up to 12 years in prison while Postmus faces up to eight. Both men are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

Prosecutors are also investigating two more alleged bribes of $100,000 each and say more arrests are possible. They believe one of the bribes went to the chief of staff of Supervisor Gary Orvitt. In a statement Tuesday, Orvitt said his vote in support of the settlement with Colonies was based on an analysis of the facts. "No one at any time, including my chief of staff, attempted to influence my decision or had any influence over my decision," Orvitt said.

Prosecutors said another bribe went to a political action committee that they contend was secretly controlled by another supervisor who voted for the settlement. Although they did not name the person, the third vote was cast by Paul Biane, who could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

County spokesman David Wert said the county is reviewing the new charges and remains committed to recovering any taxpayer money lost through corruption.

Alexandra Záviš LA Times Reporter
Estimada Sra. Záviš:
Felicitación por su informe del LA Times sobre la corrupción gubernamental en el condado de San Bernardino (con copia a continuación). En el Boletín Diario, Jerry Brown, procurador general de California, y aspirante a gobernador, citado por la consternación por la corrupción.En el LA Times, Jerry Brown nunca ha visto la corrupción como esto antes ... De interés, mientras que otros, los papeles más pequeños de noticias sobre el escándalo durante meses, y pidió el enjuiciamiento de los perps, el Los Angeles Times fue el último informe, sólo después de que las acusaciones fueron presentadas, y luego otra vez - lo empujó a la Sección Local.
Permítanme ofrecer algunos consejos de noticias, parece que el Los Angeles Times podría utilizar los mismos:
1) Jerry Brown es definitivamente miope, posiblemente sufren de ceguera lugar cuando se trata de gobierno y la corrupción judicial en Condado de Los Ángeles. Teniendo en cuenta sus ambiciones a la gobernación, esta condición de salud es, sin duda de interés periodístico, y de interés público. El LA Times parece estar sufriendo de la misma condición o similares, así. LA Times publicó una aclamada serie sobre la corrupción en Las Vegas, y ahora es la presentación de informes de corrupción en San Bernardino, pero cuando se trata de Condado de Los Ángeles, LA Times pone terriblemente visión borrosa. Si usted necesita pruebas de encubrimiento de la corrupción judicial en el Condado de Los Ángeles por Jerry Brown, podría transmitir los datos a usted.
2) Michael Welch, el ex Juez Presidente del Tribunal Superior de San Bernardino, se informó por los periódicos de San Bernardino meses atado a numerosos casos de fraude de bienes raíces. Sin embargo, ni Jerry Brown, ni el LA Times parece haber visto ni oído nada de ese asunto. Si usted necesita ayuda en la cobertura de la historia del juez Michael Welch, podría transmitir los datos a usted.
3) Los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles, como Jacqueline Connor, John Segal, y Terry Friedman, también están vinculados a casos de fraude de bienes raíces por ex Presidente de la LA County Bar Association, el fiscal David Pasternak. Este tipo de fraude se opinó por un agente del FBI condecorado veterano de guerra. [1] En caso de tener interés, que podría proporcionarle una amplia serie de casos similares por David Pasternak y los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles. La evidencia de la corrupción generalizada de los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles en simplemente indiscutible. Si necesita ayuda para encontrar los datos en re: los casos de fraude de bienes raíces por los jueces de la Corte Superior de Los Angeles, y el papel único de abogado David Pasternak en impulsar Condado de Los Ángeles para ser distinguido por el FBI como "el epicentro de la epidemia de bienes inmuebles fraude "que podría transmitir los datos a usted.
4) El ex Fiscal EE.UU. Richard Fine es falsamente hospitalizado durante casi un año. Sin embargo, no tiene ninguna dolencia. El Los Angeles Times informó de que fue detenido por el juez David Yaffe en la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles, en la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Sin embargo, el Sheriff Lee Baca insiste en afirmar falsamente que Richard Fine fue detenido por la inexistencia de la Corte Municipal de la Ciudad de San Pedro, incluso en respuesta a la pregunta de LA County Supervisor, el Honorable Michael Antonovich. El alguacil se negó a permitir el acceso a los Registros Públicos de California que estaban a la orden y el registro de la reserva, alegando que la Ley de Registros Públicos de California, no hizo lo necesario para producir documentos que no existían. Si necesita ayuda para averiguar sobre la corrupción en la historia de Richard Fine, tengo los datos preparados para usted.
5) Miles de CPI de Rampart (secuestrada personas) fueron documentadas durante la investigación escándalo de Rampart (1998-2000) no por el Los Angeles Times, sino por la serie de PBS policía de Los Angeles Azules. Un policía de Los Angeles "Blue Ribbon" Informe del Grupo de Revisión en 2006, informó de que, en general se mantuvieron secuestrada. También citó a los magistrados de la Corte Superior de Los Angeles ya que algunos de los principales opositores de la liberación de estas personas inocentes. Se trata de un caso de abuso de Derechos Humanos de proporciones históricas, que se opinó que ya hace una década por Erwin Chemerinsky, hoy Decano de la Facultad de Derecho de la UC Irvine, como la peor de su tipo en la historia de EE.UU., y requieren un examen de la conducta del Superior LA jueces de la Corte. Sin embargo, el LA Times se olvidó de informar acerca de la historia de toda una década. Si usted necesita cualquier ayuda en relación con la historia de la privación de la libertad en curso de miles de Rampart FIP, por favor hágamelo saber.
Felicitaciones de nuevo por su informe incisivo, de investigación, y dejar y quiero saber si usted quisiera más información sobre cualquiera de las historias anteriores.
