Wow!  Between a release from jail on Friday at 5:32PM and Tuesday at 4:34PM,  the SAO on a minor misdemeanor reckless driving and refusal to obey a LEO has already requested all available evidence from the PPD and it has been fulfilled. 

No judge yet appointed.
No defense attorney yet appointed.
No one sitting in jail without bond.
The SAO is already investigating the case.
However. the file with the Court never indicates that an INDIVIDUAL Assistant State Attorney is EVER assigned to the case.
Who was Stevenson talking to at the SAO about the Case?
Who is requesting the information?
Who was contacted between Friday at 5:32 and Monday morning?

According to my question and the Special Snowflakes answer verbatim:

 5.  Did you or Mrs. James make any attempt to contact the Mayor regarding the matter?  

Yes. Following my arrest I requested that no member of my family take any action to interfere or impede with the actions of the PPD or the charging decision to be made by the State's Attorney Office. I believe all concerned honored my request.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Community...Draw your own conclusions.

Is THAT it ? Just an excellent defense lawyer doing his job, even before filing a Notice of Appearance. This has not been a good week for you, and you should get back to matters which have legitimate public interest

KABOOM!!! "Will the defendant (SS) please rise." "In the case of Another SS Hayward Hook-Up, Docket #00-000000, the Community finds you guilty as hell!" "You are hereby sentenced to wearing a pair of $50 loafers for the next 30 days."

As you wish SS...I believe Maren's point was well-made. Of course the entitled elitists don't see any problem with special dispensation they actually expect and demand it. The scales of justice in this town need to be seriously recalibrated.

It's not about a lawyer doing his job Anonymous 7:45 AM. My take away is what many of us already knew existed, which is a culture of elitism. The rules certainly do not apply to all. We all make mistakes, but what defines us is how we carry ourselves when that mistake is pointed out. An officer of the court should have handled himself much better. To believe that he should be treated differently from any other citizen is what is most appalling. The call he made to Hayward to tell them not to come to his rescue is laughable, especially in light of how things were handled by the SAO.
