RE: Mr. Brandon Dyer

To District Attorney of Humboldt County, Paul Gallegos:

This email is a follow-up the message I left on Ms. Shoshani's voice mail at
or about 2:50pm today, May 20, 2011.  I am contacting you to, once again,
inform you of the laws that require you to file charges against someone
in the custody of the Humboldt County Correctional Facility (HCCF)
within the statutory time; otherwise or that person's extended custody
due to your failure to bring them in front of a magistrate or judge and
the HCCF's failure to release them, is a misdemeanor and violation of
the person's civil liberties.

Mr. Brandon Dyer was arrested on the night of Wednesday, May 18,
2011.  He needs to be brought to court TODAY, Friday May 20, 2011, or be
released from the HCCF.  The CA Penal code section 825 (a)(2)
specifically mandates:

OBTAIN THE OFFICER'S NOTES BEFORE GOING TO TRAFFIC COURT

If you're going to fight a traffic ticket, you'll want to know as much as you can about the case against you.

After ticketing you, most police officers write notes -- usually on the back of your ticket -- with details of why you deserved the ticket and what the conditions were at the time. If you can obtain those notes before your traffic court hearing, you'll be ahead of the game.
