Santa Clara County Judge Socrates Manoukian Influences Authorities to Harass those who Report Evidence of Abuse

Judge Manoukian found to be involved in sabotaging cases involving senior citizens and the disabled.

Judge Peter Socrates Manoukian

(SANTA CLARA, CA) - FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them.

Police often side with the judge because they can’t be objective due to working under that judge. This allows unethical judges to commit crimes, abuse victims and stay immune to prosecution.

Mark Arthur Ciavarella Jr. is a convicted felon and former President Judge of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania who committed, along with fellow judge Michael Conahan, the “Kids for cash” scandal in 2008.

See this story:

The problem with bringing Ciavarella to justice was getting police who protected the judge to accept the crimes and be objective. Now another unethical judge has been exposed and is avoiding prosecution.

Santa Clara County California San Jose Judge Peter Socrates Manoukian was found to be involved in sabotaging cases involving senior citizens and the disabled.

CORRUPT SANTA CLARA COUNTY JUDGE SABOTAGING COURT CASES – RUINING LIVES! These are actual case numbers for Santa Clara County Court:

The crimes and abuse also include the Santa Clara County Public Guardian who is entrusted with the lives and life savings of senior citizens. When the crimes and abuse were reported to them nothing was done and the events where ignored.

The district attorney and lawyers and police all have failed to investigate and instead are covering up evidence and attempting to stop those who are coming forward.

When one victim filed a complaint with HUD the complaint mysteriously was stopped NOT ALLOWED TO FILE HUD COMPLAINT CASE# 1-12-CV-226958.

Please view the videos below:

PROBLEM: Sheriff Department is being mis-led by the judge who claims he’s the victim, the judge is abusing his power by influencing the authorities to stop any investigation and aide for the real victims.

PLEASE SHARE THE IMAGES AND THE ATTACHED INFORMATION. The only way to stop unethical judges who abuse citizens, law and our constitution is to EXPOSE THEM AND THEIR CRIMES TO THE NATION.

Doesn't surprise me. I live in a building owned by Manoukian's father in San Francisco. He is a slumlord and doesn't spend ONE DIME on repair or maintenance. They are Greek and don't quite understand how we do things here. Pieces of shit.

We need to speak up and file complaint. Santa Clara county is corrupted

When I called in to Santa Clara County executive office to find out what happened to whistle blower complaint and was told that because rats had eaten the investigative paperwork shredded to make a nest for their babies & that they could therefore not investigate the matter and the case was closed. They told me that they had resolved the matter because staff had been advised to tidy up after themselves and not to leave old food lying around.

Corrupted Santa Clara county judge David Cena is so so corrupted. Cena brakes the law . Homicide judge David Cena allows District Attorneys DA Rob Baker, offers Janet cusimano, Wayne Smith, Stewart Davies hide evidence to delete all pictures taken at the scene. Judge David Cena should be investigated on and I pray to god it’s soon. David Cena puts innocent people in Jail.

Thank you Janet Phelan, who I admire so much for her efforts to educate the public and expose these issues. These are not isolated issues, they are happening everywhere and more frequently than ever before. The money making guardianship (conservatorship)machine is impossible to stop and elderly victims and their family members are paying with their health and well being, their lives, their hard earned money and more. The majority of victims of these crimes and their family members remain silent as a result of threats and seeing what happens to others who speak out. If you speak out in a blog in which you tell the story of what happened to your Mom or Dad as wards of the county, at the hands of Public Guardians, Private Guardians, District Attorneys, County Counsel, Probate Court Judges and others involved in this corrupt racket, be prepared for threats, character assassination attempts, blog shut downs, and vicious retaliation. The more evidence you provide to document each statement made, the more you will be attacked by those who have committed these crimes against the elderly and the Constitution. My Dad became a ward of the Public Guardian in San Diego when he was placed in a conservatorship (guardianship) of the Estate and Person. Attorneys will not take these cases because they know they do not stand a chance up against the power of these corrupt players. We had an attorney who was an outsider to the Probate group, but he finally told us that it is a corrupt mess and there is no chance to get anywhere and that he was threatened with a lawsuit against him personally and other threats if he continued to represent us. He left and once again we were self represented and up against this monster. We were told if we oppose the Final Accounting, File a Surcharge action, Request Civil Grand Jury investigation or anything, that we would get nowhere and they would take more money and make us pay all costs. They said they would have the court declare us as vexatious litigants and have our attorney sanctioned or worse for representing us. My blogs have been shut down. They do not want the public to see and hear the truth. Photos of our Dad were banned. My Twitter and Facebook and Blogger accounts shut down, Facebook was shut down permanently, the others I appealed and got them back from suspension. (reason? because they graphically show how he was abused and makes one ask how could a ward of the county Public Guardian end up bloody and battered 12+ times and nothing done? Why did the DA ignore this?) Retaliation for saying what happened online is the worst. There was a public lecture at the Ronald Reagan Center in El Cajon to talk to seniors about financial scams. Ironic, since those government agency speakers and the DA, are stealing more from the elderly than some guy selling unnecessary roof repairs to a senior. Ironic, since it was Ronald Reagan who warned that the most dangerous words in the English language are,”I am from the government and I am here to help”. Just by pre-registering my sister and I for the event and mentioning that I was going to attend in my blogs, resulted in action that I still have to pinch myself to believe it actually happened. I woke up three days before the event to the sound of pounding on windows and doors in my house. I heard yelling, “Joan, come out”, etc. I looked out my window to see three Sheriffs with guns outside my front door. Neighbors were afraid to walk by thinking there was going to be a shootout or something. They proceeded to yell and interrogate me. They told me that they had been following my blogs and began to quote everything. They offered interpretations of everything that were way off base. A .gif with cars driving down the coast and a huge hand coming out of clouds and flicking a car off the road was interpreted as my plan to kill the Public Guardian and dump her in the ocean. That is exactly what they said. I had songs on my blog and Twitter as I always do. They were interpreted as mental illness and suicide plans and death threats. “Instant Kharma” by John Lennon was me saying I am going to kill Public Guardian. Obviously these thugs do not even know what Kharma is. If I wanted to kill the Public Guardian, I’d end up with a huge Kharma problem. (Donna Sommer, Joni Mitchell, Blonde, Crosby Stills and Nash, etc.? come on, who is nuts here?) They said they heard I was going to attend this lecture. They said if I went that I would be arrested. The next day another Sheriff Deputy came to follow up and warn me I better not attend. DA Bonnie Dumanis and the DA office sites have me blocked. I am outspoken about what happened and no one can stop me. I ended up not going to the lecture and I wish I had. I listened to people who said it was a setup and would prove nothing if I went and was arrested…that I could not do anything from a jail cell. I knew the desperation of these people to cover up what they had done…I had just been witness to fraud on the court and everything else as they took my Dad away and isolated him and ignored rights, irrevocable trusts, POA, etc. I wish I had gone…I learned there were armed guards at the doors…the press was there, but they would never ever write anything anti-Public Guardian and anti DA, etc. they would attack me. I applaud Cary-Andrew Crittenden and all the others who fight despite the costs they pay. To be jailed, to be forced to leave the country, to fear all kind of retaliation…professional licenses stripped away…court sanctions for representing a client’s best interests (aka doing your job as an attorney) and more is happening and it is going to get worse with an increase in the population of elderly with money to be taken. The elderly are not being protected by these so called “protective agencies”, nor are citizens who speak out being protected…they are leaving the country, silenced by the court and… Sorry, I did not mean to write so much. Janet Phelan, Attorney Candice Schwager in Texas, Attorney Ken Ditkowsky and many many many others who have spoken out about and fought to stop these injustices despite great personal sacrifice…I salute you and thank you!!!!

A state bar complaint was filed against Gary Goodman by Linda String! Her son Roger String had Goodman assigned as his public defender. He is as dirty as they come and he has no business practicing law! Track down Linda and Roger and get their info on Gary Goodman and lets blast this sxxx all over the internet!

Lazaro February 2, 2019 8:20 pm (Pacific time)

Thanks for posting the names of the victims of public defender Gary Goodman. If you don’t mind please add Holly White to the list. Holly was a long time client of Mr. Crittenden for advocacy an counseling services after hearing of his work by word of mouth and Goodman committed fraud in court to deny Mr. Crittenden his right to speedy trial. Holly was desperately trying to reach him as he was her critical lifeline in emergency situations like this she was in as he is for hundreds of other people around the country. Gary Goodman maliciously cut off Holly from these professional services and critical lifeline she relied and depended on and this wonderful woman passed away on April 29 2016 after repeatedly trying to reach out to Mr. Crittenden and not being able to reach him. I want Goodman to be exposed like the rest of these filthy cockroaches please share this testimony of Holly everywhere!!!!!

On August 10th, 2012, judge Socrates Peter Manoukians son Matt was killed in combat in Afghanistan, a Marine fighting alleged "terrorists". 53 days later, on Ocrober 3rd, 2012 Judge Manoukuan showed up in court for a case involving elder abuse and harassment of Heidi Yauman, a disabled woman at Markham Plaza. Judge Manoukuan was acting crazy and he accused several hundred people of plotting a terrorist attack against Markham Plaza apartments These were agencies like Catholic Charities and Sacred Heart and groups that were collaborating to improve living conditions for the residents and reform conservatorship laws. The court system in Santa Clara County is liable and should have known better. They should not have allowed Judge Manoukian to work is this compromised mental state and there was evidence he had been binge drinking heavily around the same time period. The alcohol abuse may have contributed to judge Manoukian's impaired mental state.

When one goes to court with evidence, witnesses and documents all proving crime, abuse or wrong only to find out the judge ignores it all you realize how bad our courts have become. The fact is the commission on judicial performance; the legal bars are all just fronts that help…

So sad how people with different types of issues like detective David Carroll for example slip thru the cracks and get jobs in law enforcement and allowed to carry and use a gun.

This is crazy. It's all about coruption in power from the people who are supposed to be protecting us from the criminals. Who can you trust when you can't trust the police the sheriffs the judges and the DA.

Sent: Saturday, July 07, 2018 at 6:11 PM From: "Cindy Alvarez" To: Cc:, "Be Judged" , Subject: Judge Socrates Manoukian / Markham Plaza Apartments Dear Jane and John Q Pubic, Thank you for your recent article regarding judges Socrates Peter Manoukian and his wife, Patricia Bamattre Manoukian. My name is Cindy Alvarez, I am with the Markham Plaza Tenant Association and work very closely with the families who were oppressed and attacked by Santa Clara County Sheriff detective David Carroll, who forced young children at Markham Plaza Apartments to play in puddles of blood and urine which they were tracking all over the building on their shoes. Dectective David Carroll claimed that he was only doing his job by enforcing a court order by judge Socrates Peter Manoukian, which prevented Markham Plaza residents from reaching out for professional assistance regarding these problems long plaguing the Markham Plaza community, that were made worse by the Sheriff's department, the public guardian's office and others who in the course of their malicious attacks, claimed the life of Markham Plaza resident Robert Moss and more recently, the life of Markham Plaza resident Rhonda Engel. ( R.I.P. 07/26/1960-04/24/2018 ) These families were threatened by sheriff deputies and Markham Plaza's attorney, Karen McCay that if they complained about the violence and other health & safety issues, they would be arrested for harassment, evicted from Markham Plaza and that their young children would be taken away, turned over to Child Protective Services where they would be repeatedly raped and molested in foster care. Keep up the good work and thank you for the wonderful public service you provide. Please do not stop bringing attention to judge Manoukian and corruption in Santa Clara County. By doing so you may prevent other innocent people from being injured or killed by these reckless and dangerous criminals. The Markham Plaza Tenant association can be reached at: 669-244-3169 All the best, Cindy Alvarez

Thank you for publishing the list of Gary Goodman's victims. Could you please add Victorious Alexander to that list. I am familiar with the policies and understand that in order to do this, you will first need documentation and evidence. This will be provided for you. Victorius Alexander was also defrauded by Thompson Sharkey

Roger June 15, 2018 4:47 pm (Pacific time)

San Jose attorney Thompson Sharkey is a low life degenerate scum who has never earned an honest dollar in his life. If you have heard bad things about this guy, it is probably true. Just ask around. Experienced? umm yea. Thompson Sharkey has a lot of experience in cheating, lying and defrauding people. The cases he has won he has not won honestly. He makes dirty backroom deals with the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office that if Sharkey assists them with malicious prosecutions, and helps them to railroad people, the district attorney will compensate Sharkey with allowing him to win a few cases so on the surface, he appears like a good attorney but deep down, he is more crooked and scandalous than you can imagine. If you don't believe me, just hang around in front of any court in Santa Clara County that hears criminal cases and ask the people coming in and out if they have heard of Thompson Sharkey and you will hear countless horror stories of people he has defrauded and hurt. There is also information circulating about this creep on the internet. Check it out and do your own research. Fact check the bad rumors and you will discover as others have, the bad things you hear being said about Thompson Sharkey are true.

Carlos June 11, 2018 7:16 am (Pacific time)

Some deputies from Santa Clara County Sheriff department have come forward with information on detective David Carroll that he planted drugs on two suspects during botched New Years eve arrest. I believe it was Meth. A lot of people from Santa Clara County sheriff department want him gone because he gives good cops a bad name and because he continues to bring negative attention to the S.O.

Mary Smith May 15, 2018 3:17 pm (Pacific time)

I just spoke with one of the chief investigators on this case and he told me that Jane Shandler from U.S. department of housing and urban development who took the HUD complaint against EAH Housing is close friends with EAH Housing CEO Mary Murtagh and people on EAH board. Jane Shandler was with Marin Fair Housing and investigators have pulled up copies of memos written by Jane Shandler on dinner meetings back in 2006 and 2007 some of which took place in the evening and on weekends. Jane Shandler should have recused from the HUD investigation because of this personal relationship. She covered up for Mary Murtagh who committed a homicide at Markham Plaza.

I have been reading here some and now, it comes to mind! has anyone or any group even thought to start doing some FOIA's? if there has been any, please email me who did them, and what the results were. I am thinking of sending in a few of my own! anyone in the USA at anytime may create a FOIA request and the laws are the same, they are required to reply to them in a lawful manner, no matter who the requestor is, or where in the USA they may live! come now the SOCIAL MEDIA, which happens to be replacing the MSM! and for those that may not have missed any of that, or just needs to be told more directly, and the answer the question they may have is YES, I AM MEDIA! address is thank you

Please San Jose city council, tell me why you fire 66 police officers then hire back 25 fire fighter who will get the same pensions as officers. What the hell is going on!! Are you all insane? People blame SJPD for the delayed response time! Understand officers are understandably in fear for their lives and under the same dilemma when we have to wait longer for backup to arrive. In March of 2015, District Lincoln Officers were living in fear for their lives every day because there were so many illegal guns in the neighborhood and many of these guns were coming through Markham Plaza Apartments alleged via Robert Ridgeway, on ex San Jose Police reserve officer employed there who had a little racket going. Ridgeway and the gun epidemic were top on the list of public safety related issues that the public wanted Crittenden to address and the Santa Clara County Sheriff Department interfered with these community efforts and sheriff detective Samy Tarazi falsified a report to have Crittenden arrested on March 25th, 2015, the following day, on March 26th, 2015 right down the street from Markham Plaza in the same neighborhood, our beloved veteran San Jose Police officer Michael Johnson was shot and killed in the line of duty. How dare the sheriff department "show their respects" when they likely played a significant role in causing officer Michael Johnson to be killed. A sore subject for SJPD and one that as a department, they don't like to talk about very much is that in 2010, there were 324 fire arms that turned up missing. That is almost 1 gun per day and less than 20 percent of them have been recovered. When these guns are used in the commission of a crime within SJ limits, SJPD detecives who investigate the crime do not want to implicate their own department as being responsible for allowing the guns to fall into the wrong hands. Keep in mind also that deputy District Attorney Angela Bernhard was homicide prosecutor during this same time period and part of her motive for attacking the community and railroading Mr. Crittenden is to cover her own filthy despicable ass! Crittenden was arrested again on July 28th, 2017 due to another falsified police report by Santa Clara County Sheriff sergeant Samy Tarazi in circumstances very similar to the 2015 false report. A week later, on August 4th, 2017, another Markham Plaza Tenant rights activist suffered serious injuries after being viciously and brutaly attacked. Deputy District Attorney Angela Bernhard supervised over this fraud which was directly linked to stopping community members from asking Crittenden for assistance in bringing an end to this very same violence that threatens not only the public, but also tge San Jose Police officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect the same people that Crittenden is charged with protecting and advocating for. It is no wonder why Sheriff Laurie Smith dodged out of a debate with Jose Salcido and Martin Monica who are competing against her in the upcoming election for Santa Clara County Sheriff. Salcido was public safety liaison for San Jose mayor Chuck Reed who worked closely with Crittenden for many years on public safety related issues and Martin Monica is former San Jose cop whose ex colleague Michael Johnson was killed likely because Smith failed to properly supervise David Carroll and Samy Tarazi and allowed them to commit these atrocities. I am convinced that Laurie Smith dodged out of the debate because she is unprepared to answer questions about these issues from Salcido and Monica.

This case is about a murder at Markham Plaza that was covered up and deputy District Attorney Angela Bernhard, who, like DDA James Leonard was homicide prosecutor when the murder occurred so she has no business whatsoever being involved in this case. It is an obvious conflict of interest that must be addressed

Paul April 3, 2018 6:34 pm (Pacific time)

Deputy District Attorney Barbara Cathart was removed as prosecutor to case C1642778 in July of 2017 after a group of students from Stanford University brought attention to her fraud and perjury. Cathcart was replaced by her supervisor: deputy District Attorney Angela Bernhard, who, like James Leonard, was a member of the DA homicide unit in 2012 when Markham Plaza resident Robert Moss was murdered by EAH Housing staff, the Santa Clara County Public Guardian and Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian in case 112CV226958. Being on the homicide unit in 2012 means that deputy District Attorney Angela Bernhard likely played an active role in covering up Robert Moss's murder immediately after he was found dead at 2000 Monterey Road, apartment 409. This was the same time period when the Santa Clara County medical examiner / coroner got caught tampering with autopsy records. It just goes to show that Angela Bernhard will go to any length to cover up her crimes even to the extent of inciting violence against members of the public and recklessly placing people in danger.

On August 10th, 2012, Matt Manoukian, Judge Manoukian's son was killed in Combat in Afghanistan. 53 days later on October 3rd, 2012, without any cause, Judge Manoukian accused several hundred people of planning a terrorist attack against Markham Plaza Apartments in San Jose and he caused one of the residents to get killed. The court system and district attorney suppressed this evidence that judge Manoukian was insane at the time and obviously had an obsession and fixation on terrorists and terrorism , a sign of mental illness caused by the death of his son. Also, I'm sure that Judge Manoukian's heavy drinking didn't help. If anything, his alcoholism contributed to the problem and made his mental illness worse. Court officials are liable for allowing this and for not doing anything. The tactic they are using is to create these fake records trying to make Crittenden and others appear menacing and threatening. This is like the case of Larry Nassar in a way too because in both cases, multiple complaints have been received and swept under the carpet. It is only a matter of time until the Manoukian scandal will be all over national headlines.

Mary Smith March 20, 2018 5:32 am (Pacific time)

Judge Socrates P Manoukian- Mr. Manoukian, once you were placed into a position of power within the government of which you serve. However, the oath you took to serve the people of this county, state, and the Nation as a whole, is in direct contradiction to what you do, and the deeds you participate in. I feel it an insult to this county that you hold such a position. Whistleblowers should not be punished for exposing crime, or harassed for exposing the truth. They should not be tortured. The elderly and disabled should not be vacated from fair housing or the funds to make that happen. You have been involved in the illegal dealings with the estates of the disabled and elderly. People should not suffer for your profit Mr. Manoukian. YOU ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW. No one is above the law. It certainly is convenient to have your wife serve as Judge in the 6th District Court of Appeals. This is how all complaints are stopped, as she oversees all complaints filed against you. I am leaving this comment so you know that there is a public affected by your corruption, and people who are keeping tabs. There are sons and daughters who have fought in your court to regain their parents or disabled loved ones from Santa Clara County Conservators, only to be dismissed with the permanent placement of the elderly in a convalescent hospital and estates permanently taken away. We have not forgotten Mr. Manoukian. This corruption no matter how old, has not just “gone away.” On the contrary Judge Manoukian, we do not forget. You are a corrupt Judge on the bench. Your wife is as well. You do not defend the Constitution of the United States.

Sheriff Lori Smith, I am publicly asking via this forum for an explanation of letter sent by Lt. Kristen Tarabez # 1588 to former attorney for one of your deputies, Raymond Lorenzo Villarreal about his good standing with the department even when at that moment there was on ongoing investigation on your deputy for child porn. This letter was sent to attorney Susan Wilson from Morgan Hill who presented it to Commissioner Irwin Joseph. This letter helped this deputy to present a clean image to a corrupted Santa Clara County family court. Screener Lori Penn from Morgan Hill who used this letter and other illegalities that have happened through this case to allow a minor child to live with his sexually perverted sheriff deputy and former San Jose Police officer father. I would like to know if you knew about the ongoing child porn investigation, the letter written by commander, and why this deputy was allowed to keep working for the department. If you knew you are part of this corruption. If you did not, what kind of Sheriff are you? Lori Penn made outrageous recommendations to court accepted and signed by Commissioner Irwin Joseph. The Gilroy Police Department is also part of this corruption. The wife of this deputy called the department reporting domestic violence by this deputy in different occasions. The responding officers wrote incident reports that did not reflect the violence reported on calls. These incidents reports were also used by Lori Penn to make her recommendations. These recommendation favored this corrupted deputy. The deputy's former lawyer Susan Wilson retired shortly after Lori's Penn recommendations. Ms. Wilson passed her cases to Lori's Penn husband Stephen W. Penn SBN: 131044 with office in Morgan Hill. On October 6, 2015 deputy's ex-wife filed a formal complaint at the City of Gilroy Mayor's office and requested an investigations as to why incident reports and domestic violence calls do not match. She was told the mayor's office would give her a call back. The Mayor resigned without giving that call back. All these illegalities protected and supported the deputy's wants in the family court system. Is this individual still working for your department? What were the results of the child porn investigation? When the head of a department is corrupted, the body of the department is corrupted as well. You are simply trying to save your position and protect your ego by avoiding public shame. If you knew or not, you do not deserve to keep your position. Either condition make you professionally and morally incompetent. Too many corrupted deputies. If that poor inmate would not die, your department would be running business as usual. SHAME ON YOU. IF YOU HAVE A BIT OF DECENCY, SIMPLY RESIGN! Santa Clara County Family Court, Lori Penn and Irwin Joseph, SHAME ON YOU AS WELL. ALL PART OF THE SAME CORRUPTED SYSTEM!

Judge Manoukian believes that if two or more Markham Plaza residents vote for a community vegetable garden, they are guilty of a criminal terrorist conspiracy and if you dare disagrees with his decision, he will send the sheriff department to threaten to kill you and you family.

I know several people including friends and family actually injured in the Markham Plaza attacks and to this day I know for a fact that the Sheriff department is still threatening people. My had his nose and glasses broken from being punched in the face and assaulted by a gang of thugs and staff members one of them actually pulled out a chain on one occasion and because of this my aunt could have died from not getting insulin and other needed medications and care. Attorney Karen McCay defended these attacks as did detective Carol who threatened countless citizens and it was all justified from supposed legal court order by judge Manoukian. Karen McCay is a sadistic evil person hell bent on hurting people and loves to cause them pain and misery who went out of her way and bent over backwards to hurt and oppress the residents and strangle the life out of the Markham Plaza community and blocked the residents from accessing services and federal funding that they desperately needed. I have no doubt this gang caused others to die such as Michael on third floor and others who would still be alive to this day if not for these senseless judge Manoukian gang attacks. All because a group of organizations came together to protect a helpless brain damaged woman from being accosted and harassed by Elaine Bouchard, the meth head property manager.

Reply-to: "Perpetual.peace.mission" A review of the preliminary court transcripts to DOCKETS C1642788 / C1527283 clearly shows that Santa Clara County Sheriff Sergeant Samy Tarazi committed perjury by stating that this campaign stemmed from the fraudulent Markham Plaza eviction by Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian (Docket 112cv226958). The fact of the matter is that this movement was years in the making and several hundreds strong before E.A.H. Housing decided to plunge themselves into the middle of it. These were mostly people coordinating efforts which led to Assembly Bill 937 under Assemblyman Bob Wiekowski. This had nothing to do with E.A.H. Housing until County Council and the public guardian department persuaded them to put Crittenden's name on the fake court records to 112cv226958. References to this were removed from documents altered by attorney Ryan Mayberry to fabricate appearance of threat when clearly, no threat was ever made. These fake records were then used to prevent Mr. Crittenden from providing services to other Markham Plaza residents such as Robert Moss who was then found dead in his apartment. ( ) Detective David Carroll was then dispatched to stalk, harass and terrorize Mr. Crittenden and threaten him not to talk. Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian had direct financial interest in assembly bill 937 because passage of the bill would hinder his ability to profit from seizure of real estate through the collusive relationship between court department 19 and department 3 - (Honorable Judge Thomas Cain) Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian was functioning as "Probate court linebacker", manipulating results of department 19 proceedings in a manner which would effect corresponding proceedings in department 3. The revenue flow Judge Manoukian would receive from these kickbacks would be directly impacted by passage of this California State assembly bill. Deputy District attorney Barbara Cathcart was obligated to disclose to the court the fact that Sergeant Samy Tarazi had lied. Failure for her to do so constitutes an act of fraud which will, under no uncertain circumstances, be exposed before hundreds of thousands of people.. "The Truth is like a lion.

They also killed Robert Dean Stroup and tried to cover it up!!! The deaths and stalking need to be investigated and must stop!!!! I fear for the safetey of my family including my young children and am afraid to let them play outside after having sheriff deputies park in front of my house and across the street showing up at my job. They will stalk and terrorize anyone who attempts to speak out! Check out case 1-15-CV-279923 on the Santa Clara County court docket files at the clerks office!!!

In order to avoid discovery of their fraudulent conduct and the possibility that they might be called to account for their conduct, County and court officials engaged in a widespread scheme to frustrate public scrutiny by making false and deceptive statements and by concealing evidence, documents etc that they knew would have exposed their campaign of harassment, fraud and deceit. This scheme included among many other things; making false and deceptive statements in police reports, court records, etc).

The residents of Markham Plaza had been struggling for years with the harassment and hostile living environment imposed on them by EAH Housing property management and they recruited Rev. Crittenden to bring peace and stability. Judge Socrates Manoukian and the Sheriff's department stepped in and cut off all the necessary services to the Markham Plaza residents and for four years, have basically been holding the residents hostage. One resident, Robert Moss lost his life because of this and it nothing less than a miracle that Heidi Yauman was not killed as well. Anyone who speak out against the violence are threatened and harassed by the Santa Clara County sheriff's department.

During a Sheriff's office briefing which occurred on Monday January 2nd, Sergeant Tarazi announced that the top priority on the January "TO DO LIST" is to get Cary Andrew Crittenden back into custody somehow before the month is over. They are very concerned about attention being brought to the Copeland case and they are in damage control mode. I cannot say to much without revealing my identity but they are in contact with the Palo Alto Police department & PAPD is asked to report back to S.O on Crittenden's activities. The court clerks office was also asked to immediately report if anyone attempts to access Copeland's probate court file. If S.O. manages to fabricate new charges against Crittenden, there will likely be a new prosecutor assigned to the case to sub for Barbara Cathcart who will be out on maternity leave. I also have info on S.O's earlier collaboration with Lodi Police department in 2014 including the identity of a confidential female informant who was originally a potential co defendant to case C1493022. This woman was having issues with Lodi P.D. who turned to Crittenden for advocacy & she had involved herself in issues relating to Santa Clara County. I cannot reveal anymore information publicly, at least not at this time.

There is a great need to bring forward, identify and punish these individuals who abuse their authority.

My team did some research on this and found that deputy Reyna Andalon is good friends with public defender Gary Goodman who is one of the defense attorneys who worked in collusion with district attorney's office & Goodman calls her "Sweetheart", "Dear", "Doll", etc. Andalon used to work with Goodman and judge Aaron Persky. We have plenty of information coming out from Palo Alto courthouse from current and former people who worked with them and know the ins and outs of their relationship. Neither Persky or Goodman had any business touching this case. Back in 2012, myself and hundreds of others made clear that we would leave no stone unturned and that anyone who participated in EAH Housing scandal or any kind of fraud would be exposed to hundreds before hundreds of thousands of people. This includes the malicious prosecution of Cary Andrew Crittenden. Persky, Goodman and Andalon all knew this and still had the audacity. There shit will be made VERY PUBLIC & we will make ugly examples out of them all.

I worked for 10 years as a federal cop busting other cops who circumvented the laws of the United States of America. The business of law enforcement is as jaded as the sex industry. Police are no different from drug dealers, gang bangers, rapists, molesters and the like, the only difference is that the police work for the government. Are there good cops? Of course! But the system they work for is not good.

Crittenden is innocent and he was railroaded for being whistleblower who brought attention to Robert Moss, a Markham Plaza resident who was killed by Judge Socrates Manoukian in 2012. James Leonard was homicide prosecutor at the time and instead of investigating Robert Moss's death, Leonard and Detective Carroll framed Crittenden in 2014. Those are the FACTS.

Innocent Bystander December 21, 2016 7:07 pm (Pacific time)

We are dealing with some very sick and disturbed people. Judge Manoukian issued court order forcing young children to play in human excrement and piss then sent Detective David Carroll to enforce the order. I believe that Judge Manoukian enjoyed doing this to those poor kids and he takes pleasure in hurting people. Detective Carroll's lame sorry ass excuse is that Judge Manoukian ruled that it was legal for these poor young kids to crawl around in piss. Deborah Grant is another victim who was also stalked and terrorized by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's department in much the same manner in which Cary Andrew Crittenden was stalked and terrorized by Detective David Carroll and Detective Samy Tarazi. Go to YouTube and type:"Deborah grant Lawless America" Assistant District Attorney James Leonard is obviously a real piece of work and I would not be the least bit surprised if he has corpses burried in his back yard. Kudos to Carrie Andrew Crittenden and the coalition and thank you for your work keeping the community safe from these dangerous violent individuals. What the hell will it take to get this crazed lunatic, Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian off the bench? Does he have to eat a live baby while court is in session? How many people does Manoukian have to kill before someone takes action?

John December 21, 2016 4:55 pm (Pacific time)

The residents of Markham Plaza selected Cary Andrew Crittenden as their tenant representitive because he is obviously the most qualified individual to bring peace and stability to the community and in 2011, he was recognized by the White House and received invitation to meet with President Borack Obama for doing just that. This crackpot judge Manoukian get's involved and people end up getting killed.

Speaking as one having close friends and family members caught in the cross fire and who's lives have been impacted by the EAH Housing scandal, I am sickened, appalled and truly horrified that human rights violations of this magnitude are happening in the United States and there is no way in hell that I will be silent about officials placing my friends and family danger!!! There a few more dangerous criminals than Judge Socrates Manoukian, and Santa Clara County sheriff deputies David Carroll and Samuel Tarazi. They are nothing less than terrorists who covered up the cruel and hideous manslaughter of Markham Plaza resident Robert Moss, faciltated elder abuse and the and also the abuse of children who were forced play in human fecal matter and puddles of urine. Not to mention of course the fraud, harassment, sexual assaults and countless other crimes. These actions are nothing less than torture reminiscent of those carried out by Nazi soldiers and anyone who defends these evil men is also guilty and should be held accountable. History repeats itself and like the Nazis who tortured and butcherd innocent Jewish women and children, deputies Carroll and Tarazi also claim they are just following orders. Remember, the holicaust was "legal" At Markham Plaza, there are adolescents teens who carrie guns and if someone ends up getting killed because of this, Judge Manoukian is to blame and so are deputies Carroll and Tarazi. If you turn on the news and learn that at Markham Plaza, a meth lab explodes, Judge Manoukian is to blame and so are deputies Carroll and Tarazi. If your mother, sister or daughter reside at Markham Plaza and end up getting raped or stabbed walking down the hallway, Judge Manoukian is to blame and so are deputies Carroll or Tarazi. If a four year child plays picks up a used hyperdermic needle as a toy and gets pricked and catches AIDS, Judge Manoukian is to blame and so are deputies Carroll and Tarazi. Judge Manoukian is to blame for causing the death of Robert Moss and deputies Carroll and Tarazi are to blame for covering it up and this probably caused the death of Charles Copeland too. In 2015, after Copblock publicised about the fraud and manslaughter, officer Michele Martin of the Santa Clara County Probation department filed a motion in court to prohibit Rev. Crittenden from using the internet in a direct and deliberate attempt to prevent victims like the Markham Plaza residents or Mr Copeland from reaching out to him for help. And just recently, Judge Chatman issued a gag order against Rev. Critenden because another organization launched a similar campaign designed to expose the truth and protect the public from danger. I also will do my part to keep my loved ones safe from the likes of Chapman and the probation department and anyone who participates along with their supervisors will be exposed and shamed before many thousands of people. I don"t take kindly to being harassed, bullied or threatened and will not tolerate officials treating the community this way.l

The Story Road Business association was among the first responders trying empower the residents of Markham Plaza in 2012. Judge Manoukian accused them of being a terrorist organization because they volunteered to redistribute job resumes for residents of Markham Plaza who were seeking employment.

The court system is liable for not following up and investigating Manoukian after receiving credible information. He is clearly a danger to the public. this in and of itself is Federal lawsuit material. Then to think court and sheriff department would resort to harassment and stalking is just totally outrageous!!

Our Justice system is built upon the premise that the Law trumps personal biases and prejudices, we call it the Rule of Law or more aptly put, the Law is King. There is just one problem with this premise which is the Law is reliant upon people to carry out the Law’s will and when those people entrusted to carry out the Law’s will refuse to do so based upon their own personal prejudices and biased the Law ceases to be King but is rendered a mere servant of the personal desires of the person[s] entrusted with the powers of enforcing the law. By refusing to apply the Law equally to all people in all situations these people have elevated themselves to the status of a King and not just a King but a dictator since they are the ones dictating when and how the law will be applied. Even more egregious in the case of the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is when the King, former DA Dolores Carr and current King Jeff Rosen, actively and knowingly violate the Laws they are entrusted to carry out for the purpose of persecuting those whom they believe do not deserve equal justice under the Rule of Law or even the truth revealing themselves and their professions as tyrants by definition and traitors to the principles and ideals which America proclaims it stands for. Jeff Rosen touted the ability of his crime lab’s computer forensic capabilities in rooting out information from computer hard drives. Santa Clara Crime Lab Analyst John Bourke was commissioned with obtaining unadulterated taser videos and taser gun activation data from the Palo Alto Police computers, cameras and taser guns; for the Palo Alto Police submitted edited and falsified data and videos to the District Attorney’s office in order to cover up their own crimes while wrongfully incriminating Ciampi of a crime. Analyst Bourke never documents the taser gun activation data from the taser guns in his reports and is denied access to an area of the computer being investigated. Bourke never accesses the area of the computer not because he doesn’t have the ability to do so, but because he and his superiors do not want to reveal the truth, the crimes committed by members of the Palo Alto Police. Should a citizen be a District Attorney who knowingly and intentionally conceals the crimes committed by law enforcement officers? If the answer is no then we need to remove Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen from office.

James Leonard was homicide prosecutor when Robert Moss was found dead at Markham Plaza in 2012 in case 1-12-CV226958. Instead of prosecuting the case, he swept it under the rug, then he went after Cary Andrew Crittenden, the whistleblower who reported the crime, and framed him for fake harassment charges. C1493022. Deputy public defender Amanda Parks filed fraudulemt motion to recuse Leonard because Leonard, not because Leonard was a victim. That is nonsense. The reason for motion to disqualify Leonard was because he was homicide prosecutor when Robert Moss was found dead. The motion to disqualify was heard by Judge Michele McCay McKoy who was also homicide prosecutor in 2012 and she should also have been disqualified from hearing this case. This was also in 2012 when the coroners office was having issues. Robert Moss's death and also the death of Charles Copeland are linked to the Public Guardian and Judge Manoukian. LOOKS TO ME LIKE JAMES LEONARD SWEPT BOTH DEATHS UNDER THE CARPET, AND THEN THE COUNTY CONONER, CONTROLLED BY SHERIFF DEPARTMENTSWEPT BOTH DEATHS UNDER THE CARPET EVEN FURTHER.

Wesley November 23, 2016 7:07 pm (Pacific time)

So wherever judge Manoukian goes, he leaves behind a trail of corpses swept under carpet by assistant district attorney James Leonard or whoever at DA homicide unit. We got Robert Moss, Charles Copeland, how many more dead? Probably a correlation between messed up coroner autopsies and death investigations mishandled by district attorney homicide unit

Earlier this year, some Silicon Valley faith based organizations who were among the original first responders to the 2012 crisis at Markham Plaza apartments were considering holding a candle light vigal condemning EAH Housing oppression and violence. This idea was later dismissed due to fear of retribution by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's department. If a facebook events page was launched to advertise the vigal, the Santa Clara County sheriff's department would likely be monitoring the page and profiling the individuals who planned to attend. Those individuals and their families would likely then be subjected to harassment, threats and retaliation by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's department Mr. Cary Andrew Crittenden for example, was repeatedly stalked and terrorized by Santa Clara County sheriff deputies for his social media posts inwhich he adamamantly spoke out against violence. These bullying and intimidation tactics employed by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's department are to censor the speech, of those of us working to restore peace and stability to Markham Plaza Apartments (2000 / 2010 Montery Highway in San Jose - ground zero of county counsel's nuclear missile attack) By sponsoring the sheriff department's illegal thug like actions, court officials are jeopardizing public safety and the quality of life for residents, and further enabling criminal activity by EAH Housing, a toxic organization which has caused much cruel suffering. If people worry that law enforcement is monitoring social media, that will exert pressure for them to refrain from civic engagement and not to voice their opposition to violence if they fear that they too will be maliciously targeted by a sheriff department goon squaud. This unpresedented degree of police misconduct santioned and endorsed by court officials is likely to have a chilling effect on public discourse, a poisonous venom to the spirit of our democracy. - a hostile and fierce criminal trespass upon the sacred ground of our first ammendmant right to free speech and assembly which was established as a safeguard for "We the people" against this very same sort of government tyrany. The wounds inflicted on this community by our Sheriff department will leave shamefull hideous everlasting scars upon the region's otherwise beautiful history. These scars will never heal and will forever testify. As history remembers Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde and other notorious gangsters, may history also remember the Judge Manoukian gang.G

Dad's final request November 14, 2016 10:47 am (Pacific time)

In Memory of a VETERAN who has FALLEN DEFENDING HIS RIGHTS, IN THE COUNTRY HE SERVED. My father CHARLES S. COPELAND was a Navy Vet, retired from NASA. I witnessed the public guardian Shawn Parr laughing and stating "it's like stealing candy from a baby!" outside the courthouse when they conserved my Dad, after falsely stating he was not a vet!!! They transferred 10 million in assets to Hai P Tran, the VP of Fidelity, the Trustee for Santa Clara. Mortgage Companies were used to immediately remove all equity, and my father died fighting to recover his estate which was distributed through Tran to associates of the County's family trusts. My father was left dead in Tran's house for 3 weeks, and the DA refused to investigate! He failed to appear, after asking for expert opinion of evidence presented by Tran's attorney, Ann Nguyen of Robinson and Wood. I filed complaints against Judge Grilli who granted final assets to Tran's relative (which were not conserved) with the Commission on Judicial Performance, and the President Erica Yew recused herself because she was a Partner of Robinson and Wood, and sits on the bench with Grilli, approving final distributions of conserved assets. Robinson and Wood also represents the mortgage companies used to remove all equity from estates. Attorney John Foley was assigned special notice as conservatee's attorney, and Michael S. Miller was used to transfer all assets to Tran, with the Public Guardian's approval. Coincidentally, M.S. Miller lost his license to elder fraud, (assoc of Grilli's former partner?? through Miller & Grilli???)! This proves lack of judicial oversight and possible RICO actions. Grand jury reports revealed over 70 million in unaccounted public guardian assets!!! They also investigated the coroner's office which had 3 coroner's quit due to corruption the year my dad was found dead in Tran's relative's house where they left him for 3 weeks while they finished stealing everything he ever worked for. They are organized crime! Tran has hundreds of similar transactions throughout every county in CA through Fidelity etal! William Foley is the Chairman of Fidelity (rel of John Foley?), Michael Miller has a PAC, LLC. I believe its a corrupt political funding machine!!! Manoukian was the last judge to preside in the case prior to my father's suspicious death!!! Tran was arrested in Santa Clara and taken back to O.C. for hiring a hitman around the same time! see news report! They are organized, experienced, and believe they are above the law, because they have infiltrated and abused it for their own financial gain!!! They are all taking a piece of the pie. They have their corrupt people in place! 2 doors were kicked in and I got a call from a man names John Zimmerman (Pres. of Robinson and Woods!) after filing my complaint! My Dad's final request for expert opinion of his case evidence will be fulfilled!!!

For crying out loud! This woman, officer Alexandria Ridgeway needs to get a life, do something constructive! What a sad misserable person she is! Why doesn't she just leave people alone and live her life,! What is her obsession with Mr. Crittenden and what is so misserable about her life that she feels it is so necessary to harass and bother other people? She is acting like a little child crying out for attention & then, when she gets ttheattention then she bitches and complains about it. She committed fllat out fraud on police reports and in court records and when she did so, she fully understood that she would be exposed before a minimum 155,000 people. Then she acts all suprised and shocked when people defend Mr. Crittenden against her attacks! Then she blames Mr. Crittenden for the negetive attention she brought upon herself from the community outrage against her and blames Mr. Crittenden for the ccommunity defending him. If she didn't want the community to defend him, then she should not have attacked him. If she doesn't want negetive attention, then she needs to stop doing negetive things. If she is going to lash out attack any of us, then she will deal with all of us. There isn't one damn person who partipated in this scandal who did not know before hand that the moment they decided to partake in this activity, that we would bring massive exposure to them. If they think this will decrease if they threaten one of our members with violence or issue restraining orders against one of our people, they are dead wrong. The attention will not decrease. It will dramaticaly increase.

I have read the false police reports by detectives Samy Tarazi and David Carroll and deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway. The statements made are ridiculously far fetched and over the top. This kind of fraud would never be allowed by a legitimate law enforcement agency. Not in a million years. It is obvious that some sort of agreement was made with the Public Defender's office to not follow up on these fraudulent police reports. Santa Clara County Public defender: Molly O'Neal is granting these corrupt cops permission to file these false police reports. Otherwise, they would not dare make such statements.

Assistant Santa Clara County District Attorney James Leonard is claiming that at the July, 2014 board meeting, delegates from the Marin County, Contra Costa County and Sonoma County chapters met with the National Alliance of HUD tenants to discuss the EAH Housing Scandal. Mr. Leonard is adamant in his claims that during the board meeting, the delegates casted a vote that determined that Santa Clara Ccounty Sheriff deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway had also submitted perjurious documents in case C-1493022 and that somehow, Aleksandra Ridgeway had workee with her husband, Robert Ridgeway to defraud the residents of Markham Plaza Apartments. Even though there is nothing in the court records to 1-12-CV226958 to indicate that Santa Clara County Sheriff Deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway was even rremotely connected to the EAH Housing Fraud Scandal, James Leonard swears that the delegates decided that deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway should be cross examined on statements that she made in court, even though she was not present and that deputy Ridgeway should randomly be selected to be asked to sign a document verifying a statement that she never made and that somehow. the board randomly designated rev. Crittenden to "harass her" for submitting statements that were never made. Mr. Leonard fails to explain how he believes that the delegates elected Mr. Crittenden for this task. Does he believe that his name and Deputy Ridgeway's name were picked out of a hat? Assistant district attorney james Leonard also fails to explain why the such an agenda item would even be on the minutes & Mr. Leonard cannot explain why nowhere in documents to C1493022 is Deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway's name mentioned even once! If James Leonard's claims are true, then why is he unable to produce copies of any statements or references to deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway showing that she was a witness or party to the case. IIf James Leonard had really believed such a thing, then would it nor seam reasonable that he would have interviewed those who attended the board meeting or requested copies of the minutes. All non profits are required to keep such records and to make them available to the public. Does James Leonard claim thatsomehow, the board meeting records were aaltered or that there was closed session conference where vote was cast deciding that Sheriff deputy Aleksandra Ridgeway should be cross examined in regards to a statement that she never made? Does this make sense? If you ask James Leonard to explain the inconsistancies to his story, he will file a fake restraining order against you and he will dispatch the Santa Clara CCounty Sheriff's department after you and they will threaten to kill you and your family. Why has the district attorney's office brought charges against the coalition members for altering the board minutes? Would this not be a crime for any 501(C)3 organization? The board minutes were not altered. What was altered were the court transcripts to cases 1-12-cv226958 and C1493022

Santa Clara County Sheriff Deputy Alexandra Ridgeway filed false police reports in violation of California Penal Code 148 to cover up Manslaughter committed by her husband, an ex San Jose Cop whom Judge Manoukian allowed to submit fraudulent court pleadings ( Case: 1-12Cv226958 ) Robert Ridgeway's fraudulent pleadings were used to deny Markham Plaza Resident: Robert Moss assistance he needed for groceries & medicine pursuant to the American's with disabilities act. He was discovered dead in his apartment at 2000 Monterey Road, apt: 409 in San Jose in early November 2012.  When Crittenden and other coalition members published pic requesting that Robert Ridgeway account for fraudulent statements that he made, Crittenden was arrested. ( Case: C1493022 ) The original false police reports were done with help of Santa Clara County Sheriff detective David Carroll and allowed to be submitted into court record by assistant District Attorney James Leonard who withheld all exculpatpry evidence proving Crittenden's innocence. The District attorney's office did this also to cover up their own failure to prosecute the fraud and manslaughter by Robert Ridgeway and judge Socrates Manoukian.

Judge Socrates Manoukian and his wife have tons of real estate holdings all over California ( & possibly Nevada) from free bank mortgages. The rates of these loans & aggregate amounts are not available to the general public and violate federal guidelines. This is BRIBERY BY THE BANKS. ( His judicial record shows he rules on the side of banks almost always on foreclosures. )

John DeBoise! November 22, 2014 11:48 pm (Pacific time)

New information has been obtained on several court cases deliberately mishandled by judges: David Cena, Rodney Stafford and dozens of additional court cases by Judge Socrates Manoukian. Many of the court cases mishandled by Judge Manoukian have corresponding documentation showing that he and his wife have been accepting illegitimate payments from executives in the banking industry & these payments appear to be "bribes" relating to very large real estate transactions. We believe the Manoukian cases to be skewed in favor of parties with mutual banking/real estate interest in which Manoukian should have recused himself from in that he had personal financial interest in the outcome of these cases rendering it a conflict of interest to be handled by him as judge. Court officials also may be misusing public funds to hire outside private attorneys to represent matters involving judges acting in their private/unofficial capacity. For whatever reason, these attorneys appear to be mostly based out of Oakland.

Mary Murtagh from EAH Housing has to be one of the most selfish and detestible people to ever walk the earth. She acts like her attorney, Karen McCay knows more than the dozens of individuals who have been working on this project for the last 11 years! instead of fixing the damage that she caused, she sat back and thumbed her nose at the community, jeopardised millions of dollars in HUD funding for Santa Clara County! Almost caused an FBI informant to be murdered on the freeway by goons dispatched by members of the State Legislature who tried to run her off the road trying to kill her, and now the Sixth District Court of appeals has been rendered paralized in many of its functions and unable to process writs that would no longer take more that a week, are now dragging on for months. Does Mary Murtagh give a damn about the burden she is inflicting upon the rest of the community by sucking all these public resources and denying everyone else their right to use the court system! Anyone in their right mind who gets a flat tire while driving down the road would either pump up the tire or replace it with a spare. Maru Murtagh however, thinks she can fix the problem by slitting all the other tires on her car so that they are all flat. Then whenever a good Samaritan approaches offering their assistance, she accuses them of making terrorist threats, just like she did with the network of churches and community organizations which had previously been supporters of EAH and even provided funding. Then she sits there in the middle of the freeway blocking traffic for miles, blind dense and completely oblivious to all the other drivers on the freeway that was meant for everyone to use. What a dense, selfish, igmorant and hidrous person.

The latest is that the stress of all the publicity is really hitting Judge Manoukian hard and is taking serious toll on his marriage. His wife is a judge too and the EAH Housing publicity is damaging her professional career as well. They maintain a public appearance of being a happy couple but privately they are barely on speaking terms & rarely eat or sleep together and his drinking is getting really out of hand again.

What is totaly amazing is what they tried too pull the wool oveer the eyes of so many people and this kangoroo court hearting was beyond ridiculous abd bizzarre. Elaine Bouchard submitted an affidavit to the court and had it added to official court record claiming that the National Association to stop guardian abuse was conspiring with ABC NMews and the Federal Bureau of Investigations to have her killed. Judge Manoukian agreed that the FBI was indeed plotting to kill her. Why did he not have her committed to a mental hospital for this. He said that it was a crime for the National Associasion oif HUD tenants to coordinate with Mr. Crittenden, Mr. Perry and Ms. Gloston to form a tenant council, even though this is a federaly protected activity.

This was a high profile case being watched from accross the country. Elaine Bouchard, the property manager EAH Housing told the court that she feared that an FBI investigation into the court system had placed her life in danger but refused to explain how. If she felt way, then why would she still insist on colaborating with criminals and partaking in white collar crime.

There are many in the community who find it totalt apalling that EAH HOUSING hasnt stepped up and taken responsubility and they even have the audacicty to lie to the community and claim the eviction of Ms. Yauman was legal. It was a viscous and violent act of fraud and they still have the balls to try to portay themselves as a phylantrypic organization. To HELL with EAH Housing. SHAME THEM, EXPOSE THEM, WIPE THE ORGANIZATION OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!

Thank you. I support the coolition's move to shut down EAH Housing and to end the Public Guardian's practice of arrainging illegal evictions. Shame on anyone who would defend or justify the actions of EAH Housing and Markham Plaza Property Management for their gross and inhumane treatment of Ms. Yauman. Shame on their corrupt attorneys: Ryan Mayberry and Karen McCay and shame to anyone who funds this sick deranged organization and their corrupt government counterparts! May they be put to shame publicly!

Thank you for publishing and helping to expose this important issue of the corruption plaging Santa Clara County. EAH Housing staff are now claiming they did not know about the elder abuse happening at Markham Plaza but the staff at Markham Plaza who were previously denying it are claiming that the Public Guardian had directed them to abuse Heidi Yauman. (They flip flop and other times they blame their attorney) but they never accept responsibility for their own actions. Thus, their is a diverse coolition of organizations and community leaders in Northern California working to close down this organization. Glad to hear Pullen is gone but our work is not done and we need to keep exposing them. Not only the county officials but also EAH Housing / Markham Plaza and anyone else who engages in corrupt relationships with government entities.

Well if it makes anyone feel better, Santa Clara County Social Services Director: Lee Pullen was ousted on July 11th and pressure is mounting for the resignation of County Counsel: Orry Korb. Korb and Judge Manoukian go back along way and Manoukian will almost always side with the County for eveything. Asking folks to please get the word out and call Orry Korb and tell him to resign. 408-299-5901 or email We are also preparing to put EAH Housing out of business. They are the ones responsible for abusing Heidi Yauman at Markham Plaza in San Jose. We are organizing and hoping everyone will please spread the message and share this page. and by all means, contact Orry Korb and tell him to resign.

These sick and diabolical vermin should be ashamed and I'm glad that the truth is coming out! Cary-Andrew Crittenden is the only person who took the initiative not only to protect Heidi Yauman from this unjustified suffering, he tried to do so in a manner which also protected Ms. Bouchard from being caught in the heat of this scandal. They had the audacity to alter these documents and try to make it appear as if Mr. Crittenden was threatening people. Karen McCay was caught red handed trying in several lies and sent harassing emails to Cary-Andrew Crittenden and his neighbors.

These sort of crimes by judges are becoming common, the problem is removal of a judge who breaks the law. Dis-honest people often become dishonest judges who break the law, similar to the mob with thugs and gangsters who end up with scum like Socrates Manoukian who never should have been allowed to work in any part of our legal system, a con-artist, thief and liar. Once he stole he way to the bench he was able to profit from illegal practices and violate people's rights. this must be stopped and shared with the world
