Stanislaus County district attorney Dave Harris asks fifth appellate district court to let him go.

Harris claims Superior Court judge McFadden has abused her discretion and exceeded the bounds of reason.

He also asks for a peremptory writ of prohibition restraining respondent court from enforcing its judgment ordering petitioner committed to the County jail for five days for contempt of court.

Harris requests relief from the appellate court in that it issue an immediate stay of these proceedings which are to continue July 27, 2015 in the Stanislaus County Superior Court Department 2 until the appellate court rules upon and made orders to the Superior Court regarding petitioners requested relief as follows:

DA Harris asked the court to issue a  writ of mandate directing the Superior Court dismiss the order to show cause against the petitioner.

Harris asks that the Superior Court remove Frank Carson as co-prosecutor.

Attorney Frank Carson made judge Steffen aware of the misconduct by Harris in tampering with the jury in the AJ Pontillo case and of withholding exculpatory evidence from the court and the jury that could have put Pontillo in jail for life had he been convicted. Pontillo was completely exonerated on all charges.

Harris also asks the appellate court to issue a writ of mandate and or prohibition directing the respondent Superior Court to recuse judge McFadden from the proceeding, and appoint an unbiased in the impartial judicial officer to preside over the order to show cause.

Tampering with the jury is a felony and DA Harris is getting a break because DA Birgit Fladager is not going to charge her chief deputy with a crime.

The contempt of court charges against Harris is inappropriate. He should be charged with a felony.

Tthe California State Bar should rule on removing DA Harris’s license to practice law.
