There is an old legal axiom stating that “you are stuck with the witnesses who were on hand.” Attorneys use that axiom to explain to juries that the witnesses they will observe at trial are not chosen or volunteered. Indeed, they are seldom the people we would want to stake our freedoms on or trust our lives to. But, too often, yesterday’s strangers are today’s heroes. This point is made poignant by the following article:
A prosecutor with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s “Stalking and Threat Assessment Team” has been posting corrupt witnesses to prove feeble claims of “stalking” against Los Angeles men. Claims of stalking are usually hard to prove and rely upon hearsay evidence and the testimony of investigators who are funded by the same grants as the District Attorney’s STAT team.(California Emergency Management Agency). Besides the obvious conflict of interest, hearsay evidence is typically relied upon to prove-up these cases. The she-said-he-said evidence is usually based on conjecture and un-sourced email which the District Attorney makes no attempt to authenticate properly.
First Amendment Advocates of Los Angeles observed abuse by the Los Angeles District Attorney when it called attention to the filing of a lawful civil suit that renowned Los Angeles trial attorney, Sean Erenstoft filed on behalf of his client against a so-called “victim of stalking.” The gravamen of the complaint was based on his client’s claim of battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress his client suffered at the hands of the so-called “victim” of the stalking. The victim had been arrested for the crime; and pictures of his client told the story of a well-curbed client who stood idle while he was beat by his ex-girlfriend.
It was apparent that Erenstoft’s client had been late to file the civil suit. The victim had run to the police department to affect a restraining order which resulted, ultimately, in the filing of a criminal complaint against Erenstoft’s client. It proved to be a race to the courthouse.
After the civil suit was filed on behalf of his client, Wendy Segall unethically took aim at defense attorney, Sean Erenstoft to thwart his use of the First Amendment (the filing of the civil suit) for the redress of grievances. As stated earlier, attorneys don’t have the luxury of picking eye-witnesses, but attorneys do have a duty to zealously defend their clients by citing the deficiencies of the witnesses who are called “victim” by the District Attorney.

Los Angeles, California (June 2, 2014)

Sean Erenstoft who once took aim at prosecutorial refusal to disclose criminal discovery and thereby filed a lawful civil suit against a prosecution witness to obtain the discovery was vindicated when charges of "dissuading a witness" were dismissed by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.

In making his ruling June 2, 2014, Judge Stephen A. Marcus cited Erenstoft's effort at representing his then client against the D.A.'s office until the D.A.'s office took exception and took aim at Erenstoft personally.

Indeed, the S.L.A.P.P. litigation effort promoted by the D.A.'s office was launched just seven (7) days after Erenstoft threatened to expose L.A.D.A. corruption and the policy of hiding Brady evidence during his tenure handling the famous "Bling Ring" case. The indictment sought by then Deputy District Attorney, Wendy Segall pertained to an unrelated matter Erenstoft handled against her nine (9) months prior. By seeking the S.L.A.P.P. litigation via indictment, Segall avoided judicial scrutiny that would have resulted in a more timely dismissal.

Raja, try the Hot Dog Lady on W Sunset Blvd and Sutherland St. Also, you can get a surprisingly good hot dog at the criminal court building on Temple street.

I took your advice, Wendy, and tried the hot dog at the criminal court bldg on Temple. Pure mush. Oh well, I beat the trumped up "dissuading a witness" charges so it was still a fine day. Maybe the Hot Dog Lady wieners have a better snap to them?

This is a long shot but I’m going to put this out there because you people sound like legal eagles.

I did some modeling in Japan about a year ago. I am handsome and quite muscular (no roids). I am well endowed. I have a long penis and I can stay fully erect with people watching. I was wondering if there was someone who could direct me to the right path of meeting a director or something? I would like to become an actor in adult films. Thank you to anyone who has any info. I’m fine with gay or straight videos. Happy Holidays guys!
