Prosecutors Caught with Hand in the Cookie Jar


Clark County, Vancouver, WA: 
The malicious prosecution & wrongful conviction of John Garrett Smith is riddled with unanswered questions the Prosecutor’s Office & Vancouver Police Department scramble to keep buried. Continuing discovery of hidden evidence, concealed witnesses, suppressed audio depositions, disregarded exculpatory DNA Crime Lab reports, crime scene spoliation, and proof of fabrication of evidence & perjury by State’s key witness & lead detective, Sandra Aldridge, creates mounting liability for Clark County. Like a 5 year old child with his hand caught in the cookie jar, the Prosecutor's Office clings to the lie rather than accept responsibility and begin to address a problem that has plagued Clark County and its citizens for decades.

MOTIVE & ACTUAL EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE

Following is  a sampling of questions waiting for answers from the Prosecutor's Office and others involved:

REGARDING DNA EVIDENCE:
  • Why were DNA Crime lab results never entered into evidence?
  • Why was DNA analyst Caron Pruitt, claimed by prosecution to be a key witness, never added to the witness list?
REGARDING OTHER MISSING AND/OR SUSPECT WITNESSES:
  • Why were 7 Medical Doctors on the State's witness list NOT sent subpoenas to testify at trial? 
  • Why was "extent of injury" testimony provided by physician's assistants and physical therapists?
  • Why did 14 of the State's 27 witnesses fail to testify without notice or explanation?
  • Why did only 1 of 6 responding VPD officers testify?
  • Why were conflicting statements made by State's witnesses ignored by defense attorney, Josephine Townsend?
  • Why were there no police reports, statements, depositions or testimony from the following responding officers?
  1. TIMOTHY PFEIFER
  2. STEVEN PFUHL
  3. MARSHAL HENDERSON
  4. JAMIE HASKE
  5. MARK HOCKHALTER  
  • Why was non-responding VPD Officer Matthew Bachelder deposed, but not called to testify?  
  • Why did Bachelder refuse to answer deposition questions, and state that 'I do not want to be involved in this'? 
REGARDING CRIME SCENE CONFUSION AND SPOLIATION:
  • Why did Officer Yong describe a different crime scene (wrong bedroom) than was depicted in the photos?
  • Why did Detectives fail to preserve the crime scene?
  • Why did Detectives wait nearly a week to go back to the crime scene to investigate, only to arrive while the "professional carpet cleaners" were "just finishing up" according to Detective Aldridge's deposition?
  • Why was there no explanation or investigation into WHO called the professional carpet cleaners, and WHY they were contacted to clean up a recent 'crime scene' that had not been preserved?
REGARDING iPHONE:
  • Why was the iPhone logged into evidence 38 minutes before the incident occurred?
  • Who had possession of the iPhone that Garrett Smith was attempting to locate?
  • Why did the missing iPhone make two incoming calls to the landline in Smith's hand?

The most important questions involve the failure to properly authenticate the voicemail recording used to convict John Garrett Smith. The "CD copy" made by Detective Sandra Aldridge and used during trial has since been forensically analyzed, and discovered to be a composite fake.  

Where is the iPhone now that was checked out of the Evidence Unit in July of 2013 to Detective Sandra Aldridge, and, according to the evidence log, was not returned?

GARRETT SMITH REMAINS IN A WASHINGTON STATE PRISON 7 MONTHS AFTER THE COURT OF APPEALS II JUDGES REVERSED  HIS CONVICTION IN A UNANIMOUS DECISION.

THE CLARK COUNTY PROSECUTER'S OFFICE CONTINUES TO VIOLATE ETHICAL AND LEGAL PRINCIPLES, AND WORSE... THEY ARE NOW PERPETRATING FRAUD UPON THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON
