Request For State To Investigate Riverside D.A.

The Citizens of Beaumont 1st filed a complaint against with the Riverside District Attorney's Office in August, 2007 in an attempt to stop the corruption in the city government. Over 500 petitions have been sent in the last few months. In the past six years the Riverside D.A.'s Office has received thousands of pages of documentation regarding the pillaging of their City.

In January, 2013 I filed a complaint with the Riverside District Attorney regarding the City of Beaumont and sent the D.A.'s Office a packet containing numerous examples of embezzlement, fraud, corruption, and misuse of taxpayer dollars. I explained the accounting irregularities found and supplied documentation from the City of Beaumont's General Ledger, Bank Statements, & Financial Reports. I also sent an email to Investigators Curtin and Jorge Chavez explaining the situation. I received a response from Investigator Chavez stating their office would review the materials.

A couple weeks later Senior Investigator Robert F. Curtin called me to state he was the investigator in charge of the case and asked me numerous questions. Over the past 8 months I have sent Investigator Curtin 20 emails containing further evidence regarding the corruption in Beaumont.

On August 5th the Riverside District Attorney's Office called to request that Judy Binghan and I meet with Investigator Curtin on August 12th to discuss the case.

We met with Investigator Curtin and another man that refused to identify himself or produce credentials. Investigator Curtin opened a new binder with a fresh paper and proceeded to 'open the case'.

Investigator Curtin and the Riverside District Attorney's Office had not one piece of information regarding the City of Beaumont. All of the documentation submitted by the Citizenry for the past six years had been destroyed and not one piece of information had been collected.

For six years the Taxpayers of Beaumont has been pleading with the Riverside District Attorney's Office to investigate the corruption in their local government and for six years the Riverside District Attorney's Office has been throwing the complaints and evidence in the trash.

It is unknown if Investigator Curtin was acting alone, if he was following orders from his Superiors, or if throwing away every investigation is common practice in the Riverside District Attorney's Office.

I am filing a complaint with the State Attorney General's Office against Investigator Robert F. Curtin and the Office of the Riverside District Attorney and requesting the State take the lead in prosecuting the corruption in Beaumont.

The California Office of Attorney General States: “The state Attorney General is authorized to undertake the role of a prosecuting officer only in specific cases when the county district attorney is disqualified from the case or when they clearly, without justification, fail to act.”

By destroying evidence for six years Investigator Curtin and the Riverside County Office of District Attorney have 'clearly' demonstrated their failure to act and blatant disregard for the law.

Investigator Curtin and the Mystery Man requested that all of the documentation from the last 6 years be re-submitted in disk form as if the Citizenry has nothing better to do with their time and money. I will turn in the information again, but only to Riverside District Attorney Paul Zellerbach, a Forensic Accountant, and the Supervisor of Investigator Curtin.

yes, it's been going on a long time ....people were hoping for zellerbach to do a better job, but the word is already out that beaumont chief of police coe is backing zellerbach ... on the front page of my website there's a picture of the beaumont general ledger showing the a $21,000 personal loan paid off to coe paid off with one payroll deduction .... the city gives the high ranking members of the police force personal loans ...below coe's personal loan account is councilman fox....the cops get tens of thousands, but fox is only given $100-200 at a time... yes, the city of beaumont has a councilman that doesn't have $100 in his pocket....and he is now signing the checks because the city manager and finance director refuse to sign for the money they are pillaging....hard times... - http://www.libionline.net

Corrupt Rail Road County and their overcharging, false charges and continuous plea bargaining to extort monies from homeowners instead of going after white collar and violent criminals hasn't change is what it looks like. The Powerful Prosecutors Union along with a bunch of dead weight Sheriffs Union are still holding power and Zellerbach has not been able to get his house in order while the Prosecutors attempt to put Hestrin in office to support their continued corrupt house of cards. To bad for us the taxpayers....In my opinion, Hestrin of Temecula must NOT get elected at all cost and hopefully Zellerbach can fire these clowns and find Prosecutors willing to work for a living.

How much longer before this corrupt pus filled pimple of corruption is stopped? Not only don't vote for Hestrin of Temecula but start digging for the dirt on him and his cohorts.
