Investigated investigators do not get prosecuted.
Tampering with the jury is a felony, and that is exactly what Stanislaus DAs investigator Steve Jacobson and District Attorney Dave Harris are accused of in the trial of Aleo Pontillo, owner of AJ bail bonds.
DA’S Fladager and Harris are being charged with contempt not a felony.
The accusation is verified from a declaration by Judge Scott Steffen, who presided over the trial.
The accusation was moved from Judge Steffens court to Judge Silveira and now resides with Judge Linda McFadden, who is holding Jacobson to a contempt charge.
Attorney Frank Carson, who filed the complaint said, “I have no doubt that if I or my investigator had done the same thing to jury members in the same situation, we would have been arrested immediately, restricted from the courthouse and prosecuted on felony charges by the District Attorney’s Office to the fullest extent of the law.”
