Inmate Information Center
Case Management System (CMS) of the Los Angeles sheriff’s Department
Interest in the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information Center arose after two senior attorneys who had filed complaints against alleged widespread judicial corruption in Los Angeles County were forcibly hospitalized. One of them, 70 yo Richard Fine, a former US prosecutor, has been forcibly hospitalized since March 4, 2009 with no known medical reason for the hospitalization. Review of the Inmate Information Center data for both Richard Fine and Ronald Gottschalk revealed that the system carried false and misleading information regarding their arrest and booking. Requests for the California Public Records, which were the warrants and booking papers of the two attorneys, were denied over the past three moths, even after intervention of Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. The true facts in the matter were that in both cases the attorneys were subjected to warrantless arrests, which were covered up through false and deliberately misleading data entered in the Sheriff’s Inmate Information Center.
Therefore, initial survey was performed of the integrity of the Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information Center. Such preliminary survey of about 200 entries, showed that over 30% of the entries in the sample had no Booking Number at all, and about half the cases had false and deliberately misleading court and case number associated with the arrests and jailing.
It was concluded that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information Center, in its current form was a hazard for the Liberty of all who reside in Los Angeles County, California, and that its operation constituted severe abuse of Human Rights. Such system, like other large government CMSs, particularly those in the courts and correctional facilities, must be subjected to publicly accountable validation (certified functional logic verification). The operation of fraudulent CMSs by the justice system is key part of the current integrity crisis in the US.
