It's a good bet the District Attorney's PROBE will conclude within minutes of Mr. John Johns dropping his civil suit.

Leone contends Johns knew as early as August 2007 that he was the subject of an investigation by the Atherton Police Department and the district attorney's office.

What Mr. Johns knew as early as August 2007 was that Chief of Police Bob Brennan accessed his personal computer and also conducted a background search with the help of REACT Task Force (located in Town of Atherton Police Department)......At that time it was only Chief Bob doing his own personal search of a man he disliked. No mention of the DA'S involvement at that time.
