Supervisor Carole Groom's public statement to DA Steve Wagstaffe
Original post made by Michael G. Stogner on Jul 1, 2012
"I don't know how many folks in our county know the promise you kept to the Biletnikoff family, after the first case was dismissed or overthrown and you promised that family that you'd come back and re-prosecute and you did, and he was found guilty again and I just think that's just another example of what your office does."
I don't how many folks in our county know (including Supervisor Carole Groom) that Steve Wagstaffe was personally responsible for the murder conviction to be reversed in the first place, Three Judges from the Ninth District Court ruled his behavior was racially motivated, she doesn't mention that.
I supported San Mateo County re-trying him, he was guilty, I did not support the idea of Mr. Wagstaffe being the prosecutor in the second trial, and I am sorry the Biletnikoff family had to go through another trial.
I think Supervisor Carole Groom's public description of this event was less than honest.
