In January, 2013 I filed a complaint with the Riverside District Attorney regarding the City of Beaumont and sent the D.A.'s Office a packet containing numerous examples of embezzlement, fraud, corruption, and misuse of taxpayer dollars. I explained the accounting irregularities found and supplied documentation from the City of Beaumont's General Ledger, Bank Statements, & Financial Reports. I also sent an email to Investigators Curtin and Jorge Chavez explaining the situation. I received a response from Investigator Chavez stating their office would review the materials.
A couple weeks later Senior Investigator Robert F. Curtin called me to state he was the investigator in charge of the case and asked me numerous questions. Over the past 8 months I have sent Investigator Curtin 20 emails containing further evidence regarding the corruption in Beaumont.
On August 5th the Riverside District Attorney's Office called to request that Judy Binghan and I meet with Investigator Curtin on August 12th to discuss the case.
We met with Investigator Curtin and another man that refused to identify himself or produce credentials. Investigator Curtin opened a new binder with a fresh paper and proceeded to 'open the case'.
Investigator Curtin and the Riverside District Attorney's Office had not one piece of information regarding the City of Beaumont. All of the documentation submitted by the Citizenry for the past six years had been destroyed and not one piece of information had been collected.
For six years the Taxpayers of Beaumont has been pleading with the Riverside District Attorney's Office to investigate the corruption in their local government and for six years the Riverside District Attorney's Office has been throwing the complaints and evidence in the trash.
It is unknown if Investigator Curtin was acting alone, if he was following orders from his Superiors, or if throwing away every investigation is common practice in the Riverside District Attorney's Office.
I am filing a complaint with the State Attorney General's Office against Investigator Robert F. Curtin and the Office of the Riverside District Attorney and requesting the State take the lead in prosecuting the corruption in Beaumont.
The California Office of Attorney General States: “The state Attorney General is authorized to undertake the role of a prosecuting officer only in specific cases when the county district attorney is disqualified from the case or when they clearly, without justification, fail to act.”
By destroying evidence for six years Investigator Curtin and the Riverside County Office of District Attorney have 'clearly' demonstrated their failure to act and blatant disregard for the law.
Investigator Curtin and the Mystery Man requested that all of the documentation from the last 6 years be re-submitted in disk form as if the Citizenry has nothing better to do with their time and money. I will turn in the information again, but only to Riverside District Attorney Paul Zellerbach, a Forensic Accountant, and the Supervisor of Investigator Curtin.
