    where is this james garrity character? is he in witness protection? His name is al over these snitch cases. Why cant we squeeze his head and make him spill the beans on the DA?

      Maybe he’s protected under the Jail Informant Bills of Rights (JIBOR) and can’t be squeezed? Who knows? If cops aren’t required to do their jobs and testify in criminal cases which results in convicted murderers getting new trials or sweet plea bargain deals – and keep their police jobs – maybe their informants have similar privileges. Someone should submit a public records request and ask. If your request is denied because the public interests outweigh your need to know – maybe JIBOR exists. But we’ll never find out. 🙂

      There is a James Garrity that was moved to the California prison inmate records at the end of Jan 2016–whether it is the same Garrity, that is a question for Mr corrupt O.C. DA Rackauckas. It would be interesting to find out why Garrity was in the OC jail and and if one of the quid pro quo “favors” and unwritten terms for alleged confidential true or untrue info was to remain in the OC jail versus the California prison system where OC officials cannot guarantee preferential treatment. Obviously Rackauckas and Hutchens and the OC Board of Supes have known about TRED for years…and they can all control inmate favors by holding them in the OC jail as long as possible before transferring inmates to the prison system where elected OC officials lose monetary and informant control.

      Looks like another money, for profit venture for Rackauckas and Hutchens while the OC Board of Supes continue to approve Rackauckas and Hutchens’ budgets requests year after year, without checks and balances.

    Does the media have an update on the status of the civil lawsuit ruling brought by the former 5 assistant sheriffs who were fired by Hutchens seven or eight years ago? I believe the trial ended in August / 2015. Why no decision? Very odd. There’s many millions of dollar on the line. The taxpayers have a right to know what’s going on. Anybody in the media mind looking into it for us? Or do they think we’ll forget about it given enough time? That’s one of the common play book strategies. Come on, media! Do your job!

    More dirt on OCDA and OCSD, eh? I want Goethals to be our next DA. If he runs I’ll walk door to door for him. Somebody has to clean up the cesspool they’ve turned our OC justice system into. Those convicted of really vile murders are getting new trials or sweet plea agreements that will eventually put them back out on our streets, thanks to those sworn officers we pay fat 6-figure compensations and are supposed to uphold and obey the laws of the land. The cops accused of lying and withholding exculpatory evidence will refuse to do their job and testify under sworn oath to save their own butts – while they remain employed at OCSD under the protective rule of Sandra Hutchens who we pay close to $500k in compensation and who maintains this is no scandal. They just need more training! 😉 Bring in the Feds and clean house! This is just repugnant. We were led to believe things would improve after Carona. We’re no better than a stinking banana republic. Oh, and you notice all this putrid news breaks on a Friday evening right before the slow-news weekend for damage control! Welcome to TJ!
