Mark Roe, Snohomish County Prosecutor
This past week, I’ve been covering a Snohomish County prosecution for arson in the 1st decree against Lori Shavlik. But this wasn’t the first prosecution of Ms. Shavlik, it’s Snohomish County Prosecutor’s second run. The first trial resulted in hung jury, with jurors stating “ the State failed to prove its case.”
While pedophiles are walking free, and baby killers are released because Mark Roe failed to file simple papers ( http://snocoreporter.com/3-month-old-babys-killers-walk-free-for-now/,) Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and his political racketeering gangsters from the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office are maliciously prosecuting – for the second time- a forty-five year old mother of five for Arson I.
Statistically, women are not arsonist; women represent less than 4 % of all arsonists.
As of today, millions of taxpayer dollars have been misspent over a fire that started behind a dryer unit at Ms. Shavlik’s place of business – a tanning salon- and while she’s embattled in a contract /lease dispute with the building’s owner who just happens to be a personal and dear friend to the lead investigator who is also the Fire Chief, and a former City of Snohomish Brady Cop David Fontenot ( exposed and terminated from another county for stealing, harassing women in the workplace, and lying on search warrants, etc).
And by the way, the Fire Chief has no official fire investigation training, he is simply a political official, elected by the public; and a dirty cop David Fontenot is now a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer. Sounds like people are being rewarded here.
After reviewing the pictures from the County’s so called crime scene, it’s clear to me that the so called crime scene has been tampered with, but I’ll wait to post how we know until after the State closes its case.
Interesting to read the last line above whereas Mark Roe writes “This memorandum has been generated to provide the defense notice of this potential impeachment issue.”
Note that Mark Roe cares not for wrongfully charging and convicting citizens, but only for how this might affect his office.
Commentary from the Gold Bar Reporter
At the time this post was made, this entry represents day four of State v. Lori Shavlik.
I’d like my readers to know that the only reason the Gold Bar Reporter decided to cover the case is because I have ample reason to believe that Snohomish County Detective David Fontenot and Snohomish County Prosecutor Fransesca Yahyavi should in prison for the malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik; and for what these criminals did to her children, I hope they sue Snohomish County for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
As an award winning journalist, with criminal defense knowledge, I intend to do everything possible to expose the cockroaches who retaliated against Ms. Shavlik, causing grave emotional distress to her family, as a favor to the building owner and the head of the Monroe School District, who with no surprise, Ms. Shavlik sued for harassing her daughter just a year prior to his good friends inside the City of Snohomish trumping up criminal charges on her.

Linda Eide’s own words, Re: Block, “Scene One“
Snohomish County has at the helm of this malicious prosecution, prosecutor Fransesca Yahyavi, who is being assisted by Snohomish County Detective who just happens to be a Brady Cop/Detective David Fontenot.
The first issue several observers noticed is Fransesca Yahyavi and Brady Cop David Fontenot seem to have very very very personal (possibly sexual) relationship.
How we know is simple: Fontenot was caught massaging Fransesca Yahyavi’s buttocks with his finger tips.
Either this is a new type of legal guidance not yet listed in Westlaw ( although admiittingly we did not search Lexis Nexis) or there exists a personal relationship.
Since this is day four of the trial, I feel comfortable stating that anyone who uses their fingers to massage my buttocks is someone very very close to me, like my partner or my message therapist.
Now, I’m not sure about my readers but I’d say “a lawyer who is engaged in a personal relationship with their client/s is guilty of gross violations of their ethical duties as a lawyer under Washington State’s Rules of Professional Conduct.”
Now, just to make sure Fransesca Yahyavi’s is claiming some type of attorney-client relationship exist, while at the same allowing a dirty Brady Cop to massage her buttocks in a public courtroom, I wanted to make sure Fransesca Yahyavi is trying to claim attorney-client relationship exists, so I requested her emails pursuant to RCW 42.56.
But from what several onlookers saw, Ms. Yahyavi and David Fontenot’s emails should be pretty juicy. Valentine’s Day is certainly not over in Judge Millie Judge’s courtroom this week.
When’s a Dirty Copy, always a Dirty Cop
As I stated above, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer David Fontnote is a “Brady Cop.” That is, he is listed on the Snohomish County Brady List …er uh…List. “Brady” is in reference to a famous case known as Brady v. Maryland.
For those of our readers who are not legal beagles, police officers who landed on the Brady List are known to be dishonest, as in this case, David Fontenot has not only been caught lying on search warrants, but he was also fired from employment for sexually harassing women at the Sheriff’s Office in another county, caught falsifying search warrants and stealing from crimes scenes.
Boy do I love Snohomish County Washington, it’s quite the place to raise children. Dave Somers where the hell are you?
Because of U.S. Supreme Court’s Brady ruling, prosecutors are required to notify defendants and their attorneys anytime a law enforcement official involved in their case has a know history of knowingly lying in an official capacity. However, Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, at least in this case, feel that they didnt have to disclose that information to Lori Shavlik’s lawyer. But they need not worry, because another reporter did, and she did a wonderful job at exposing the cockroaches, a.k.a David Fontenot and Ms. Yahyavi. search www.snocorerter.com
This prompted Ms. Shavlik to demand that her lawyer, John Crowley, notify the court, specifically Judge Millie Judge ( who at least appears to be trying to conduct a fair trial, at least at day four, stage one), to file a last minute motion to allow the defendant to enter information about Brady Copy David Fontenot into her trial.
Despite this well-known case law, case law that is incorporated into Official court rules, Ms. Yahyavi moved in pretrial that Mr. Fontnote’s Brady cop history be excluded from this trial. This is an attorney asking the court, the Honorable Millie Judge, to break the law.
It appears, Ms. Yahyavi missed or failed constitutional law or simply believes her actions to be above the law. Opps, there is that Kalina holding from Our Supreme Court that she should be very worried about. . . but she may ask Tim Ford for advice on that one.
The court’s response was that she needed to think about it. On Tuesday, Judge Millie Judge, with the camera rolling, ruled against Ms. Yahyavi’s warped and facially unconstitutional motion and will allow Detective Footnote’s Brady history to be disclosed to the jury…although it hasn’t been disclosed as yet while Det. Fontnote “assists” Ms. Yahyavi with parading her 26 “witnesses” to the stand.
On day four, not one single witness is yet to introduce any connection to the fabricated arson scene. This after launching a massive investigation of epic proportions deserving of a serial murderer, including three search warrants, one of each of Ms. Shavlik’s two businesses ( tanning salons) , and one of her family home where her young children were lined up in the entry hall like felons while the home was completely torn apart.
With no surprise, Our good friends from Snohomish County Prosecutor and our expert Sheriff’s Officers found no evidence supporting the state’s case for Arson I.
Wasting taxpayer monies to racket up criminal
charges as political favors
When I think of Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, I think of cockroaches scattering every time their public records are requested. Cockroaches hate sunlight, so those of you readers interested shining much needed light on corrupt government officials ask for their emails and telephone records pursuant to RCW 42.56. Pretty juicy stuff, possibly National Enquirer worthy.
The Prosecution spent at least 3 million dollars arraigning a tsunami of “exhibits” (that seem to be inconsistent shots of the same dryer vent) and last but not least, Brady Cop , and a fine member documenting that wrong with Snohomish County Sherriff’s Officer, David Fontnote’s “special” legal guidance that has juicy lust filled moments closely associated with the first X rated movie I saw as a child “Deep Throat” …moments not defined by law and not listed in Westlaw, but certainly prohibited by Washington State Bar Rules of Professional Conduct ( Lawyers) that Ms. Yahyavi she will never be prosecuted under because our good friends at the bar have never disbarred a prosecutor.
RCW 42.56 is the public’s greatest tool in exposing the cockroaches
where they roam, inside government agencies
Snohomish County’s former Deputy Director of Emergency Management told political appointee John E. Pennington ” stop bothering Anne Block… you’re going over the radar and it will be the end of your career.”
But sociopaths never listen . . . hence is the case here.
Detective Fontenot is also a witness in this prosecution, and thanks to Judge Millie Judge, David Fontenot will get his videotaped 2 hours of fame when being impeached by the defense counsel about his stealing, lying on declarations, harassing women, and tampering with evidence in this case.
While sitting in on day one of this trial, I had a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer violate my civil rights by illegally seizing me – in violation of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Const. Because I, as a severally hearing impaired disabled American, sat in the front pew of Judge Millie Judge’s courtroom. The Sheriff lied claiming that only witnesses can sit in the front row of the courtroom. Trained in criminal defense, I said ” oh really, while there’s trial , your telling me that witnesses are allowed to sit in the courtroom? Bull shit!”
Thankfully another open government supporter is in the courtroom video taping this violation, and a tort claim has been filed against Snohomish County and the Sheriff’s Officer specifically. Now, the only the reason I mentioned this fact that may seem a little outside the scope of this article is because witnesses are never allowed to sit inside the courtroom while there’s an ongoing jury trial.
Why is simple: witnesses should never know what other witnesses are going to testify to before they testify. Unless of course you live in Snohomish County, Washington.
While all of the State’s witnesses have been painstakingly sequestered in the hallway in order to keep them from being influenced by other testimony in the trial, Brady Cop Detective . Fontnote is allowed to be present through the entire trial as Ms. Yahyavi’s “assistant” while Ms. Yahyavi reminds the court that the news camera videographer and journalists present are absolutely not to talk to the witnesses in the hall lest they create a mistrial.
This results in a court verbal order that the video footage is not to be publicly posted until the trial is complete. Meanwhile, Ms. Yahyavi launches a secondary attack on one of the investigative journalist present by scurrying out into the hallway to alert security that they need to remove this person from the courtroom because she had the audacity to sit behind the prosecution’s desk.
The smile on Ms. Yahyavi’s face as she returned from this task could only be described as that of a Cheshire cat and captured nicely on camera. This occurred right after Ms. Yahyavi placed a 2′ X 3′ display easel between her and the journalist completely obscuring the view from that gallery view.
Sleepy, yawning, and
“Judge I need to use the restroom”
During the trial it appears 70% of Ms. Yahyavi’s witnesses have been on the stand. It had become a blur of minutia. None have testified yet to ANY evidence that ties Ms Shavlik to the alleged crime of arson. Absolutely zero.
Jurors’ spent the majority of the week yawning, eyes floating up and down struggling to stay awake, and ending with one juror asking the Judge to use the restroom. I began thinking ” Did this lawyer really manage to get through undergraduate studies?” Anyone who can read or pay off a member of the WSBA Disciplinary Office can get a passing grade on the Bar exam, but undergraduate studies is where one learns to communicate with others. This prosecutor missed a few classes.”
I must admit the State has proven that Ms. Shavlik took money from the cash register drawer of her own business to go shopping with her daughter and buy lunch. Under these standards for proving that someone is guilty of the crime of arson, almost all small business owners would be convicted of crimes, if not all.
Several witnesses also testified that Ms. Shavlik may not be a skilled manager of the business.
One witness, Rebecca, who was also a teenage single mother who Ms. Shavlik allowed her to bring her infant child to work, testified that Ms. Shavlik was at times a terrible boss.
As a single mother myself, I could have only dreamed of having a boss that allowed me a little extra time with my one and only baby girl. Rebecca hardly demonstrated that Ms. Slavlik is guilty of arson, but this witnesses testimony left me believing that this witness may have played a part in framing Ms. Slavlik to save her heroin addicted brother. But I’ll need to send my investigators out to explore that issue before writing a “tit for tat story” on this witness.
Overall most of the witnesses seem to like Ms Slavlik.
Major crimes detective Kendra Conley is still testifying. She did testify that she investigated thousands of cases, but we hear her emails may be pretty dam juicy, as juicy as her attire in court on Thursday, which we likened to a street walker ( perhaps she was assigned to Snohomish County’s Prostitution sting ring earlier in the day ?).
Detective Conley also with no surprise admitted that she too was rewarded with a job from the City of Snohomish to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. But what sticks with me is that She also lied to the jury that she participated in thousands of cases. A search of current case files documents that Ms. Conley is a liar.
Snohomish County has yet to introduce any evidence that meets the bar of RCW 9A.48.020 Arson in the first degree and our country’s burden of proof requirement “ beyond a reasonable doubt. ”
The jurors are falling asleep, rolling their eyes, bored, and one juror had to use the restroom so badly that he interpreted the judge saying I need to use the restroom. I presume to throw up over the stench coming from the Prosecutor’s desk.
A videographer is present, so our story is captured on camera. It certainly shines much needed sunlight on the criminals ruining our democracy.
If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.
Sometime after 9/11 public officials decided that they have a free pass to spit on citizens’ with no oversight from our federal courts. From what I’ve seen from our federal judges, Seattle Federal Court Judge Richard Jones ( http://snocoreporter.com/for-sale-uncle-tom-jones/), Seattle Federal Court Judge Marcia Pechman (whose husband is a hearing officer for the WSBA so she dismissed cases filed against the WSBA as favors to her husband’s friends at the WSBA), and Seattle Federal Court Judge Ronald Leighton who appears to have a sworn allegiance to a Bible titled ” Corruption” they may not be too far from the truth. See http://goldbarreporter.org/2015/10/09/washington-state-bar-sued-again-more-racketeering-allegations/
Oprah Winfrey’s dollars well spent on Judge Richard Jones’s nominations as he continuously spits on the civil rights of minorities who sue for discrimination and retaliation. Perhaps Judge Jones was Mark Roe’s mentor.
Birds of feathers flock together as do pigs and swine. . . .
Dystopia, you bet, America will soon become a 3rd World country. Reporting from the front lines of democracy, the Gold Bar Reporter.
“Power and those in control concede nothing … without a demand. They never have and they never will. …each and every one of us must keep demanding, must keep fighting, must keep thundering, must keep plowing, must keep on keeping things struggling, must speak out and must speak up until justice is served because where there is no justice there can be no peace.”
The bleeding continues for Gold Bar, after a whistleblower tells us that Washington State Supreme Court covered up emails involving illegal dissemination a WSBA member’s files and illegal background checks.
More public records suits for Gold Bar.
