Charges dropped: DA protester out of prison

From page A1 | April 18, 2014 | 3 Comments

 

 

A man known for protesting the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and charged with soliciting the murder of a judge in Nevada has been released from prison and his charges dismissed.

South Lake Tahoe resident Ty Robben was released last week after Douglas County, Nev., District Attorney Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation of murder charge, along with a charge of criminal libel — a charge that is not used in California.

Both the criminal libel and solicitation of murder charge concerned Judge John Tatro, Robben said. But, Robben told the Mountain Democrat, he was exercising his 1st Amendment rights for the first charge, and he was not soliciting anything on the second charge. Rather, another prisoner — while Robben, known as “Top Ramen” while incarcerated on the libel charge — propositioned him with a $5,000 “roofing job,” Robben said.

Jackson confirmed he dismissed the charges due to lack of evidence and unlikelihood of conviction. He also noted that the Carson City, Nev., DA’s Office was originally on the case, but was taken off due to having been named in a federal lawsuit Robben filed against them.

Robben credits his faith with seeing him through his time in prison. “My faith in the Lord got me through the darkest period in my life and I pray that I can start to forgive these people for the unforgivable acts of government retaliation using the criminal justice system after I had filed a federal lawsuit in Reno two weeks before I was arrested in California.”

Tahoe Tribune story on Ty Robben

 

All charges against South Tahoe resident Ty Robben have now been dropped in jailhouse HIT MAN to kill corrupt Carson City Judge Tatro and Slander/Libel/Internet Stalking

Ty Robben mug shot

Douglas County District Attorney Mark Jackson, the special prosecutor named to handle the cases, previously dismissed libel and harassment charges.

He served notice Thursday that he was dropping the charge Ty Robben AKA “Top Ramen” (new ‘jail name’ obtained at the Carson City jailhouse since it sounds like his name) tried to hire a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Mark Jackson was brought in after the Carson City DA’s office was disqualified from handling the case.

“Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court,” Jackson said in a statement.

He said that means Robben’s $50,000 bail has been lifted, and all pending charges against him have been dismissed.

“It is my understanding that Mr. Robben is in the process of being released from the Carson City Jail,” Jackson said.

Robben stopped by the Tahoe Daily Tribune Friday and said he was hoping to restore his life and family. He thanked his attorneys for their work to get him released.

“Thank you to Mark Jackson for standing up and supporting the U.S. Constitution,” Robben said.

 

Douglas Co. Nevada DA Mark Jackson

Two weeks ago, Jackson dismissed the other case against Robben, which accused him of libel and stalking and two counts of attempting to intimidate Tatro and his family.

He did so stating that Nevada’s libel law was “unconstitutionally vague.” The stalking charge, he said, simply didn’t have enough evidence to support it.

Robben has been battling the state and criminal justice system since he was terminated by the Taxation Department.

He was angry with Tatro for his conviction on charges of disorderly conduct centered on his attempt to — allegedly — serve papers on behalf of a friend on then-NDOT Director Susan Martinovich.

Robben said Judge Tatro and Assistant DA Mark “Freddie” Krueger must resign and criminal charges must be filed against Judge Tatro  for filing a false report against me!Judge Tatro Corrupt

Thank you Douglas County DA Mark Jackson for respecting the US Constitution and my 1st & 14th Amendment rights in these matters and the honor to respect the law(s) and look at the facts unbiased.

Robben also posted a story and photos of an alleged requirement for Judge Tatro to take a breathalyzer test prior to taking the bench everyday.

Are you aware of the ruling in Times v. Sullivan (1964) which states this, in part:

As Americans we have a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on Public Issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide open. And that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.

hit man contract out for Judge TatroThe Douglas County District Attorney dropped charges Thursday against Ty robben whom Carson City prosecutors had said tried to hire a jail inmate to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Ty Robben, a former Nevada Taxation Department employee, was being held on the charge with a $50,000 bail. Mark Jackson, the district attorney brought on as special prosecutor after Carson City’s DA was removed from the case, said he reviewed the evidence before him and made the decision.
 
In a statement Jackson said:
“Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court.”
 
Last month Jackson dropped charges of stalking, libel and two counts of intimidation of Tatro and his family, saying there wasn’t enough evidence that Robben was stalking him and his family, and that Nevada’s libel law was vague.

Record CourierA bail hearing was Tuesday for a fired state taxation employee who faces a charge of attempting to solicit someone to kill a Carson City justice of the peace.

jp tatro ruthless and toothless

South Lake Tahoe resident Todd Christian Robben, 44, is in custody awaiting trail on two counts of intimidating Judge John Tatro. The additional charges were announced on Monday.

Robben reportedly tried to “solicit another to commit the murder of Carson City Justice of the Peace John Tatro either directly or through another person.”

Robben, who has been battling the state and the criminal justice system since he was terminated from the Taxation Department more than a year ago, already has been convicted of disorderly conduct.

murder of Judge TatroHe blamed Tatro for his treatment on the disorderly conduct charge involving his attempt to allegedly serve papers on the then-director of the Nevada Department of Transportation, Susan Martinovich.

Soliciting to commit murder is by far the most serious charge yet filed against him. It is a Category B felony punishable by 2-15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Robben has asked that his $50,000 bail be reduced. The DA’s office wants it increased.

Visiting judge Senior JP Harold Albright of Sparks will be in Carson City for that hearing, and he is expected to conduct Robben’s appearance on the new felony charge.

Judge Harold G. Albright Profile: Judge Harold G. Albright was born in Denver, Colorado on August 10, 1945, admitted to the bar in 1971, Nevada; 1973

Public Defender Jarrod Hickman argued in November that Robben thinks he has been treated so unfairly by the DA’s office that his rights have been violated.

They lost an attempt to disqualify the DA’s office from prosecuting Robben on charges of libeling the judge, two counts of attempting to intimidate a public officer and stalking by electronic means.

In addition, Albright refused at that hearing to reduce Robben’s bail.

Those charges, one of which is another felony, are pending.

A man who protested the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office was charged with trying to solicit murder of a judge on Jan. 27.

A complaint in Carson City, Nev., charges Todd “Ty” Robben with trying to solicit the murder of Judge John Tatro. The charge is a Class B Felony, said Carson City Assistant District Attorney Mark Krueger, which carries a possible term of two to 15 years.

The complaint alleges that Robben, while already in custody, attempted to solicit another inmate — who was a “cooperative source”— to murder Tatro. Robben, a warrant obtained by the Mountain Democrat shows, was in custody on charges of stalking by electronic means, libel and two counts of intimidating a public officer.

Robben protested outside the El Dorado County DA’s Office and the South Lake Tahoe Courthouse last May after bounty hunters illegally crossed state lines to capture him, he said. Out-of-state bounty hunters require an affidavit and warrant, he previously told the Mountain Democrat. DA Vern Pierson, however, said the matter was handled properly. Robben’s protest focused on what he said was corruption in Pierson’s office for not charging the bounty hunters.

Lake Tahoe where he was demanding the resignation of the Police Chief for something and it looks like he is someone who had problems with law enforcement and judges and DA’s in two states and several counties. His road to felony charges has as much to do with threats being made and recorded while in jail over the phone it looks like as it does with a jail informant. He was also reported to have no less then five restraining orders against him from co-workers alone according to a News4 Reno report where he was maintaining that the state court was not filing papers and then backdating them regarding his termination from employment case and he was at that time given an order not to have any contact with court staff by a Judge Wilson. People should always look into the background of someone making claims of large conspiracies and the other guy did it and be suspect of it.

  • 1036-FrankFebruary 06, 2014 – 2:44 pmThe first question people might have is to ask themselves how many co-workers they know who while employed have ever had restraining orders from co- workers filed against them regarding their employment? I’ve never seen it locally although as anything it could happen. In his case News4 Reno said there were five. This was in the story about his claiming the court docs weren’t filed properly when the court staff said they were and this looks like it went to the Attorney General if not the Supreme Court as there are so many court filings it is hard to tell and this isn’t the same judge as now. These kind of orders prohibiting conduct of an employee would in a restraining order would about make it mandatory to terminate them on the orders alone because of the inability of others to perform their jobs along with creating a hostile work place problem. This is but one of many things that tell the back-story, which I believe is the real story. The two recent Nevada Appeal articles are also relevant about the threats made over the recorded jail phone which are being used for felony charges along with an informant. These troubles and allegations are involving way too many people in different areas and states for them to be all or any of them legitimate in my book.Reply | Report abusive comment

  • 1036-FrankFebruary 06, 2014 – 3:09 pmIn this case of Robbens, He was like a one man war against law enforcement, the justice system, and the courts and local govt. This is not a winning game, and worse if tried in two states and several counties. the local DA was smart and ignored him from what I can tell and these kind of people like Robbens want attention and he didn’t get much, and the public support wasn’t there, though he would certainly be a tool to use for the “others are more corrupt” then me gang of operatives.

Ty Robben, a former Nevada Taxation Department employee, was being held on the charge with a $50,000 bail. Mark Jackson, the district attorney brought on as special prosecutor after Carson City’s DA was removed from the case, said he reviewed the evidence before him and made the decision. In a statement Jackson said: “Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court.” Last month Jackson dropped charges of stalking, libel and two counts of intimidation of Tatro and his family, saying there wasn’t enough evidence that Robben was stalking him and his family, and that Nevada’s libel law was vague.Reply | Report abusive comment

Jason Woodbury announces 2014 run for Carson City District Attorney against Corrupt Assistant DA Mark Krueger

Jason Woodbury announces 2014 run for Carson City District Attorney against Corrupt Assistant DA Mark Krueger

Former Deputy DA Jason Woodbury says he’s running for Carson City District Attorney against corrupt assistant DA Mark Krueger.

Mark Kruger is currently employed by the corrupt Carson City DA Neil Rombardo:

Krueger is one of 10 Plaintiffs in a complaint filed in July against the Lyon County Commission, County Manager and Comptroller.  The complaint contests a recent decision by the County to freeze a 2.5-percent merit pay hike for certain non-union employees.  (See related stories on NewsDesk below).  The complaint was filed through Krueger’s private Carson City practice.

69174-jasonwoodbury.jpg

Former Deputy DA Jason Woodbury says he’s running for Carson City District Attorney against corrupt assistant DA Mark Krueger.

“Being elected District Attorney of Carson City would fulfill a dream I have had since I first set foot in a courtroom,” said Woodbury, 41, in a news release. “This is my first run for office, and no one is going to mistake me for a smooth politician. My only campaign strategy is to give this community an honest, straightforward look at who I am and what I stand for. I hope once they see my experience and our common values, Carson City voters will be convinced I am the right choice for District Attorney.”

Carson City District Attorney Neil A. Rombardo said in September that he was not going to to run for re-election.

Woodbury has spent his entire legal career practicing in Carson City, beginning in 1998 when he was hired as law clerk for Judge Michael Griffin. He joined the Carson City District Attorney’s Office as a Deputy District Attorney from 1999 to 2003 before entering private practice.

Woodbury is a partner in the law firm Kaempfer Crowell, where he works primarily in civil litigation and criminal defense.

“My experience as a prosecutor is important — voters need to know they have a D.A. with the skill to enforce justice on behalf of the community. But that skill must be guided by seasoned judgment — the ability to recognize what justice is in a particular case and the background to calculate the most efficient and effective way to achieve that just result. During 10 plus years of private practice, I have represented businesses — from one person shops to the largest industries in Nevada. And I have represented individuals, including some charged with a criminal offense. My broad legal background would be a positive foundation for the Carson City District Attorney’s office,” Woodbury said in his news release.

Woodbury is a graduate of the University of Nevada in Reno, and completed law school at the University of Utah. He and his wife, Stacy, live in Carson City where they are raising three children.

“I am honored to have the support of many wonderful people who call Carson City home. I hope voters grant me an opportunity to serve this community which has been so good to me and my family,” Woodbury said.

The public is invited to a meet and greet Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Glen Eagles Restaurant.

How about prosecute instead of “let’s make a deal”? Start by getting rid of the useless “Judge” Tatro who helps the criminal and screws the victim. Living in Carson City I have seen this many times. Tell us what we want to hear then do something completely different. Quit making the victim suffer by not making the criminal pay out the wazoo for once!

NewsDesk has submitted an email to the Carson City District Attorney for confirmation of that hire.  The following is the content of the Auer email:

DA AND SHERIFF SET POOR EXAMPLE

by admin on August 20, 2012

Regardless of what results come of the suit filed by District Attorney Robert Auer, Assistant District Attorney Mark Krueger, Sheriff Allen Veil and associated parties, in light of Lyon County’s financial woes all those linked to the filing of this complaint look like whiney, vindictive vultures.

They are certainly not in tune or in spirit with the cooperative attitude demonstrated by the vast majority of County employees – Association and non-Association members.

As noted in a previous commentary, the County Commissioners, with the support of County Manager Jeff Page and County Comptroller Josh Foli, set aside funding in the 2012-13 budget to cover potential costs upon settlement of the Employees Association and Sheriff’s Employees Association contract negotiations.  Negotiations had not been finalized prior to the required submittal of the budget and the beginning of the 2012-13 fiscal year.

In the final agreements the Employee’s Association decided to forego the 2.5 percent merit increase.  The Sheriff’s Employees Association pushed for and received the 2.5 percent merit increase.  Certain non-Association employees (supervisory personnel) feel they should receive the benefits gained by the Sheriff’s Employees Association.

First, as noted in a previous commentary, for 30 years – since the inception of employee associations in Lyon County – non-association personnel have been granted the same benefits/lack of benefits that the Employees Association contract granted.  If the non-association members who now feel they should instead be receiving the same benefits/or lack of benefits as the Sheriff’s Association employees, one must ask:

WHY DID THEY WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE CONTRACTS WERE FINALIZED TO VOICE THEIR DISSATISFACTION?  WHY DID THEY NOT MAKE THEIR DESIRE CLEAR DURING THE BUDGET WORKSHOPS AND PRIOR TO NEGOTIATIONS?

This whole scenario sounds like, looks like, feels like – a gang of poor losers.   Their team did not win under the standing rules, so they now want to change the rules and the score to their benefit!

According to County Manager Page, the commission’s decision to freeze the merit pay increase for those non-union (supervisory) personnel listed as Plaintiff’s saves the County an additional $80,100; however, in order to defend the County’s position a good portion of this money may now be needed for legal assistance instead of being used to meet some of the County’s many pressing needs.  And, if the commission decision is overturned by the court, $80,100 will have to be taken from other budget needs in order to pay the 2.5 percent merit increase to those employees claiming they deserve it. Costs of the County defending itself are not covered under its liability insurance.

The Board of Commissioners on Thursday (August 16) authorized County Manager Page to hire an attorney.  The County has hired Madelyn Shipman of Laxalt – Nomura. Her contract rates are $200.00/hour for her; $175.00/hour for an assistant attorney (if needed); and, $100.00/hour for a paralegal (if needed).

In light of DA Robert Auer’s threat to take the issue to court if the 2.5 percent increase for certain employees was not approved, some may suggest the commission (3 of the 5 members, anyway) should have simply conceded to the demands and threats of the DA and Sheriff, given the employees the 2.5 –percent increase and saved the county the potential costs of defending itself and, potentially, losing in a court battle.

I do not agree with this “easy way out”.  There are times when the commission must stand their ground, follow good conscience and take the principled path.  Three members of the Lyon County Commission voted to take that path.

According to the website www.transparentnevada.com,  two of the highest paid employees in Lyon County are Plaintiffs District Attorney Robert Auer and Sheriff Allen Veil; however, their salaries, along with other elected County officials, are established according to State Legislative guidelines and are not affected by the commissioners’ ruling.

  • Robert Auer:   Base Pay – $124,642    Total Pay & Benefits – $162,518
  • Allen Veil:        Base Pay – $103,351    Total Pay & Benefits – $157,196

According to County records, the salaries of the other County employee Plaintiffs in the complaint filed against the County are:

  • Chief Deputy SO Joseph Sanford   Base Pay – $103,120          Total Pay & Benefits – $157,060
  • Chief Deputy DA Mark Krueger     Base Pay – $111,517          Total Pay & Benefits – $148,708
  • Captain SO Pat Soukup                    Base Pay – $89,509            Total Pay & Benefits – $137,841
  • Captain SO Albert Torres                Base Pay – $83,565            Total Pay & Benefits – $131,046
  • Asst. DA Damian Sinnott                 Base  Pay – $73,092             Total Pay & Benefits – $92,256
  • Vicki Foster (Dayton JC)                  Base Pay – $36,795            Total Pay & Benefits – $54,297
  • Misty Edelfson (Dayton JC)              Base Pay – $40,289              Total Pay & Benefits – $53,982
  • Sarah Miller (Walker JC)                Base Pay – $34,715            Total Pay & Benefits – $47,592

The responsibility for this fiasco lies entirely on the shoulders of the two elected department heads – District Attorney Robert Auer and Sheriff Allen Veil.  They both should be very aware of the County’s 30-year policy in regards to non-union/supervisory personnel and Association contracts.  It is their responsibility to inform their employees of that policy – not be the instigators of this formal Complaint.

Again, the vast majority of Lyon County employees, supervisory personnel and department heads should be loudly commended.  They have shown an exemplary sense of team play and sacrifice during these very difficult financial times.  Many have much to complain about in regards to their lack of pay increases, loss of staffing, over-burdening of duties, et al; however, in spite of these hardships and related stresses, they have done their best to be team players – in the best interests of their fellow employees and Lyon County residents.

Think about it.

Carson City DA candidate Mark Krueger chickens out of tonight’s Carson City Chamber Primary Candidate Forum

Public invited to tonight’s Carson City Chamber Primary Candidate Forum

mark krueger chick scared

mark-krueger-is-corrupt

EVENT DATE:  May 21, 2014 – 6:00pm

The two Carson City District Attorney candidates Mark Krueger and Jason Woodbury were supposed to debate at this forum

…but Mark Krueger chickened out after learning Ty Robben was going to show up, protest and ask these questions:

  • How much taxpayer money was spent on the retaliation of Ty Robben?
  • How much taxpayer money are the taxpayers paying Thorndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger ?
  • When is “Judge’ John Tatro going to be charged or filing a FALSE police report against Ty Robben?
  • Why did the DA Mark Krueger and Neil Rombardo drop charges o a felon in possession of 60 loaded AK47 and AR15 firearms (and a large quantity of meth) against Keith Furr to testify against Robben when Furr actually solicited Robben according to the secret recordings that in act were not recorded via a “wire” and instead were illegally recorded via the cell intercom system?
  • When the CCSO and DA manufactured the surreptitious recordings, they broke the law by engaging in surreptitious recording and then fabricating the audio to add a header with Keith Furr saying he is wearing a wire and “working or the judge tatro”…
  • When Robben was in jail and the CCSO recorded the cell conversations, clearly the CCSO recorded other inmates informing Robben of an array of scandalous matters with Kenny Furlong and Judge Tatro that including homosexual acts with transvestites and pedophilia child molestation with young men. freddy-krueger
  • Why is the CCSO covering up the shooting o Judge Tatro’s front door?  Clearly the “official” position from the CCSO that Levi Minor used a ‘BB gun” is bullshit and he was never charged or that. It is true that Levi Minor did admit that John Tatro had an affair with his mother “Crystal” who worked in the Carson City courthouse. So, with these undisputed acts, why is the CCSO still covering this matter up?
  • Many more questions will be brought out, stay tuned.
  • One of the big stories people are talking about is the CCSO does not give inmates their prescribed medications! Robben witness numerous Carson City jail inmates suffering because of this policy and custom by the CCSO.
