Compounding Liability

John Garrett Smith was convicted in a bench trial of Attempted Murder II, based on claims that - even as they were presented at trial - could not have occurred... and certainly should not have led to such a conviction. 

When you add the post conviction discovery of exculpatory evidence (intentionally hidden by Deputy Prosecutor, Jennifer Nugent, Lead Detective, Sandra Aldridge, and Defense Attorney, Josephine Townsend) Garrett Smith's conviction is absolutely absurd. 

THE DEPUTY PROSECUTOR IN GARRETT SMITH'S CASE WAS TERMINATED FROM HER POSITION AT THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROSECUTION CENTER UNDER A SHROUD OF SECRECY SHORTLY AFTER SMITH'S CONVICTION... 

THE LEAD DETECTIVE, SANDRA ALDRIDGE, HAS BEEN INVESTIGATED BY INTERNAL AFFAIRS FOR COMPLAINTS OF MISCONDUCT IN AT LEAST 5 SEPARATE CASES AND HAS BEEN NAMED AS DEFENDANT IN THREE FEDERAL CIVIL LAWSUIT SINCE SMITH'S CONVICTION... 

AND DEFENSE ATTORNEY JOSEPHINE TOWNSEND, WHO PLAYED THE KEY ROLE IN SECURING HER OWN CLIENT'S CONVICTION, FACED FELONY CHARGES REGARDING ACTIONS IN A SEPARATE CASE FOLLOWING SMITH'S CONVICTION...


This level of questionable conduct comes as no surprise when you look closely at the "evidence" (or lack there of) upon which Garrett Smith's December 3rd, 2014 conviction was fraudulently achieved. Click on "JGS: EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE" in the menu bar above.

John Garrett Smith's wrongful conviction was reversed and remanded back to Clark County Superior Court on October 4, 2016.  Smith is still awaiting release from prison while the Prosecutor's office continues to put forth fraudulent evidence in an attempt to exhaust every feeble avenue to dispute a unanimous decision by the Court of Appeals Division II. The October 4th COA II opinion in the Smith case carries with it a change in case law that is already being used by prosecutors across Washington State, making it even more unlikely that any higher court will reverse the decision.

We teach our children that when they make a mistake, or do something wrong, they should own up to it, face the consequences, and learn from it. When it comes to misconduct and malicious prosecution leading to wrongful conviction of the innocent, the Clark County Prosecutor's Office demonstrates an indifference and lack of accountability that is disgraceful.

This is more than a criminal justice system issue. Failure to intervene by local and State leaders results in added liability for Clark County and its citizens.

  1. Clark county Washington is one of these the most appalling corrupt and evil. Look into the case of Fugitive Recovery agents Jason Stomps and David Smith. They DID NOT go into the wrong home. Through research, I am sickened that they are the ones behind bars.
