2010-01-08 Supervisor Antonovich, Los Angeles County, repeat mailing of January 8, 2010 response from Sheriff Lee Baca in re: Arrest and booking records of Inmate Richard Fine (1824367), including the fraudulent attachments s

It is indisputable that Richard Fine was arrested on the morning of March 4, 2009 at the Court of Judge David Yaffe, Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, at the Mosk Courthouse, on North Hill Street, City of Los Angeles. However, no warrant for the arrest was ever discovered. Furthermore, for over a year Sheriff Lee Baca insists on denying access to the California public records, which are the arrest and booking records of Richard Fine. Instead, for over a year, Sheriff Lee Baca insists on producing false and deliberately misleading records, even in response to inquiry by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich - falsely claiming that Richard Fine was arrested on location and pursuant to the Authority of the San Pedro Municipal Court . [1] As you surely know, no such court has existed for almost a decade. Richard Fine is only one example, but survey of the inmate data in Los Angeles County jails demonstrated that about half the inmates - thousands of persons, are held under false and deliberately misleading records. [2] It is a Human Rights disgrace of historic proportion! This repeat mailing, post-stamped January 14, 2010, included the attachments, which were missing from the original mailing by the office of Supervisor Antonovich. Such attachments were the fraudulent responses provided by Sheriff Lee Baca to Supervisor Antonovich's inquiry regarding refusal to allow access to the California Public Records which were the arrest and booking papers of Richard Fine and Ronald Gottschalk. The responses, among other fraudulent data, state the arrest and booking of Richard Fine to have taken place by the non-existent San Pedro Municipal Court. In fact, the abduction was perpetrated by the Sheriff's Warrant Detail in open court at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Court of Judge David Yaffe.
