Here is yet another story from a former employee who actually won their civil service case yet had their career wrecked by Jeff Wilson:
How long does a personnel file remain available to review ? I would love to offer the investigative material from mine. I was up on the chopping block at the same time as Karin [Bjork].I have heard rumors concerning the investigative process during the time I was placed on leave but just ignored them.The unsuccessful attempt to fire me gave me insight to the Civil Service process. In hindsight I should have called more staff into the process as witnesses.The list Scott had included Brad Alford to testify against me. After my attorney posed several questions Brad Alford actually cried. Kind of shocked me. Aside from the fact he lied! I would love to get a transcript of that hearing. He was a sexual assault investigator at the time and I was the Advocate for 2 minors that were assaulted by a CHP Officer.I always thought that since he heard all of the sex case interviews, maybe he was under more pressure to keep secrets and bend the facts than I realized.Sorry to say this. I hope Alford realizes how I felt when he lied about me.I can verify age related pressure from administration.In 2016 Clark G. called the Victim Compensation Staff into a closed door meeting in the Law Library. (this is the section that processes claims for the State of California Crime Victim Compensation Board.) In a very pensive and unusually nervous manner he basically wanted to know how long we all planned to continue to remain employed there.As the four of us sat there and all looked at each other, I commented; “are you even allowed to ask us that?” Nervous laughter ensued but, ultimately that event none the less, led me to make the final decision to leave. He was at one time the Union Shop Steward, and should have known the question would be hurtful and damaging. I wonder now if he was told to do it.
I am really wondering what the hell has been going on in the Placer DA’s office for the last 8 years. What has become clear is that there was a stalinistic purge executed under Jeff Wilson. Regardless of the defenses of Dave Tellman, everyone in senior management has to be tainted by this rampage.
During the onset of the ravaging of staff, I was one of the original first bunch being constantly harassed. I was walked out and placed on leave for over four months. I followed up with the above person who emailed me.
I was ordered in writing to :Phone in to Troy Kenney Chief Investigator every day.To remain at home to answer a call back.And on 3 occasions asked to meet and be served legal documents relative To the attempt to terminating me.I demanded a full Board hearing.Alfords testimony was supposed to be some slam dunk investigative brilliance that was extracted from the investigative process in that CHP case.He was a witness at my Civil Service HearingI was at the time; The Victim Services Unit Supervisor defending my employment against the charges that I was obstructive .His testimony was not factual. He lied. Then he cried. Scott O turned beet red and hung his head in shame. (Blogger’s Note: Scott O is Scott Owens, the former DA of Placer County)I think I was the practice run for what would be a series of ignorant blunders.Karin B. Todd K. I think Rick O was a target. Carl M. Then poor Dave K. Parks on the railroad tracks. (Blogger’s Note, we’ve written about some of these previously.)(That CHP Officer was prosecuted and terminated and is registered as a sex offender.)I was reinstated with a demotion to Victim Advocate.In retaliation, I never worked as a Crime Victim Advocate again. Against the findings of the Civil Service Board ruling and oral statement, I never worked with another crime victim again.I did entry level clerical intake.…and yes this is a mess. There is so much
To those of you that have been reading Right On Daily for any length of time, this resembles the stuff I was writing about in the Riverside Sheriff’s Office Drama. Regarding the Alford referred to in this article – it is the assertion of this source that Alford lied in testimony to help a CHP officer that got caught committing sexual misconduct. What a small world it is.
Then I got another tidbit:
Hey Aaron, just thought I would chime in with my 2 cents on Dave TellmanYes he is a really nice upbeat guy but for some reason since December I have been invisible to him. I don’t work for him now but did in the past. He has always been very pleasant to me now he just looks past me. Weird don’t understand it. Then the second thing he is very close to a couple staff members where their families go on weekend get always, I know friendships will occur at work but should not show up at work but it is obvious. There is the looking the other way when it comes to time off. Even weirder still if there is a riff between him and Jeff, these staff members are also Jeff’s favorites. Just an odd fact!Now I would like to throw another name into the mix. Kelly LeRossignol, when Jeff promoted Doug And Jennifer he also promoted her and she became responsible for the office staff. She’s been at the office a few years I guess not really sure but was also very friendly. But I had never worked with her so when he promoted her I asked someone who I always saw talking to her what was she like since she was now over me. I said she seemed nice and she said. “ oh let me tell you, she will slit your throat and you will bleed out before you even know what she has done” I thought that was kind of harsh but a few weeks later I got called in to Doug’s office because I dared to be unhappy with a decision she made and let me tell you that statement was no lie! Doug glared at me but said nothing but there is no kindness or give and take in that person.Please keep it anonymous! Are you getting crazy with all the stuff you are getting!
Dave Tellman – open invitation. I want to interview you on the record about why you are qualified to be the Placer County DA. I want to ask you questions about all of the stuff that occurred while you were a part of management. Please email me at [email protected] – my cell phone has also been circulated around as well. Let’s talk, I want to know why I and my readers should be able to trust you to be DA.
To the other candidates for DA that made it through the backgrounds (there are five of you not named Jeff Wilson) I will interview any of you as well. Jeff Wilson, withdraw your application and retire.
