    A judge found Thursday that a Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigator followed proper protocols when he obtained a warrant to search the home and office of county Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and others, clearing him of allegations that he’d sought out a friendly judge to sign off on the searches. “The court concludes that the process to obtain the new warrant did not deviate from established processes for law enforcement to obtain a warrant,” Superior Court Judge William Ryan wrote in a document laying out his findings. He said that Sheriff’s Sgt. Max Fernandez, who wrote the statement of probable cause that was presented to Judge Craig Richman ahead of last week’s raids, attempted to get the warrants signed Sept. 8 by another judge who had handled proceedings related to earlier warrants in the case. That judge, Eleanor Hunter, was on vacation. So Fernandez went to the bailiff’s office and was directed to another open court, which happened to be that of Richman, Ryan found. “Detective Fernandez did not select Judge Richman,” Ryan wrote. “At the time, Detective...
    An Orange County Superior Court judge has overturned the conviction of a jail inmate who pleaded guilty to trying to hire a hit man to attack a veteran sheriff’s investigator as well as a witness. At the request of the District Attorney’s Office, Judge Michael J. Cassidy vacated the conviction Tuesday, Aug. 30, against Paul Gentile Smith because of misconduct by prosecutors and deputies in the murder case that sent Smith to prison. A murder conviction against Smith was dismissed last summer because the prosecution team had failed to turn over key evidence, while deputies refused to testify about it. He faces a new murder trial scheduled for November. One of the deputies who refused to testify is retired Sgt. Ray Wert, one of the the targets of the attempted hit. While Wert remained reluctant to talk in court, he sent his attorney Tuesday to argue against dropping the conviction for soliciting the murder for hire, which carried a prison sentence of more than six years. Through attorney Lolita Kirk, Wert said that while more than 10 years had passed...

    One of the lead investigators looking into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew has said the arrest of her husband for her murder was 'premature,' according to newly-filed court documents. Suzanne's husband Barry, 53, was arrested last May on suspicion of murder following a year-long search for his wife, Suzanne, 49, who disappeared from their home on Mother's Day 2020. Her body has never been found, but police say she is most likely dead because she has not been heard from since then.  Barry denies the charges, and has submitted court documents to dismiss the case for 'outrageous governmental conduct,' claiming that former Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent Joseph Cahill himself had said that Barry's was 'premature' just four months ago, in December 2021.  The defense attorneys write in the court documents, obtained by 9 News, that Cahill 'stated the case was not remotely ready for anybody to move the case forward' when he was being interviewed by Internal Affairs on December 2 for accidentally firing his weapon while he was off-duty and at home. They also claim in the documents, which were unsealed...
