In the matter of The People of the State of Colorado vs Larry Sinclair the people move to dismiss the complaint against defendant. This comes after a Deputy District Attorney in the Pueblo Colorado District Attorney’s office abused his position as Deputy DA and knowingly filed a factually false and intentional misleading Motion before District Court Judge Jill Mattoon on December 11, 2012 seeking to have the arrest warrant issued in May of 2001 vacated and a new arrest warrant issued with a nationwide extradiction in retaliation for the filing of a Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act and Colorado Open Records Act request against said Deputy DA Stephen A. Jones.
On March 20, 2014 Sinclair was arrested by the Holly Hill, FL Police Department while taking a vandalism report based on the arrest warrant issued by District Court Judge Jill Mattoon in December 2012 based entirely and knowingly false information. Sinclair was required to post a $15,000.00 surety bond including a non-refundable premium of $1500.00 on March 22, 2014. Sinclair then was forced to travel to Pueblo, Colorado on March 23, 2014 in order to appear in Court at 8:AM on March 24, 2014. On March 24, 2014 Sinclair appeared in Pueblo County District Court Div C at which time he informed the Honorable Victor Reyes, District Court Judge, that “this is 13 years old and it needs to be dealt with once and for all, your honor this matter will either be dismissed outright by the District Attorney or scheduled for trial, but there will not be any pleas made in this case.” Judge Reyes gave Sinclair until April 28, 2014 at 8AM to retain counsel and appear before the court with said counsel. Sinclair again had to travel from Daytona Beach Florida to Pueblo Colorado to appear on April 28, 2014 before District Court Judge Reyes with retained counsel in Karl Tameler of Tameler Law Office.
On April 28, 2014 Deputy DA Jennifer Zamarripa (left in a photo from Pueblo Chieftain April 22, 2011) told counsel for Sinclair “if he sets it for trial I will not consider any negotiation,” yet Deputy DA Zamarripa failed to understand that when Sinclair informed Judge Reyes on March 24, 2014 the case would either be dismissed outright or it would go to trial, he meant it. On advice of counsel a formal plea in the case was postponed til June 9, 2014 when the case would be set for a pre-trial conference. The District Attorney’s office had until the end of business on May 25, 2014 to turn over to Sinclair’s counsel all discovery in the case. The DA failed to produce discovery in a timely manner and on May 30, 2014 was contacted and asked why discovery had not yet been provided to the defense. It was during this contact concerning discovery that Deputy DA Zamarripa informed counsel for Sinclair discovery had not been provided because “I am filing a motion to dismiss the case.” According to sources close to the case Deputy DA Zamarripa went so far as to imply to counsel for Sinclair that she (Zamarripa) might be looking into pursuing possible “witness tampering” charges against Sinclair because the alleged victim in the case claimed she and her family had received threats from Sinclair, including the threat of deportation, which according to Zamarripa the alleged victim advised her, her brother had in fact been deported and the alleged victim and her family attribute his deportation to Sinclair. Sinclair’s last communication with Carmen Segura was a letter mailed to her dated in December 2000, before Segura had even filed any Police report alleging Sinclair stole & forged her checks. That for those who can’t count was 13 and a half years ago, far longer than the “5” years cited in a May 27, 2014 Pueblo DA investigators report.
During this time between April 28, 2014 and May 30, 2014 Sinclair had been gathering certified copies of documents from the El Paso Texas Sheriff’s Department and County Attorney which supported Sinclair’s original statements to the District Court in a Motion to Dismiss filed by Sinclair in 2004 which stated the allegations made against Sinclair by Carmen Segura were made not because they were true but because Segura and her family (brother and sister-in-law Gabriel & Priscilla Munoz) had failed in their effort to file a knowingly false police report alleging Sinclair stole their truck on October 28, 2000. Not only do these documents prove the Munoz’ did file a false report which they knowingly and intentionally gave false statements to El Paso Texas Sheriff Deputies, in Nov 2000 (months before Segura contacted Pueblo Police claiming Sinclair had stolen and forged her 1999 State and Federal Income Tax checks) Munoz is quoted by Deputy Marquez as claiming “Sinclair might have issues with the IRS…” (the full reports will be published in the final part of the 3 part series When Politics turns facts into fiction and fiction into facts on this case). Sinclair also obtained from the State of New Mexico a copy of the speeding ticket issued to Sinclair on the return from El Paso Texas in March of 2000 (the time Segura claimed she was in El Paso and Sinclair was allegedly in Colorado stealing her checks) with the ticket number one before the ticket number issued to Sinclair was issued to Segura’s husband also for speeding as well as failure to have Joshua, Segura’s son restrained in a proper car seat based on his size.
On June 6, 2014 Deputy District Attorney Zamarripa filed a motion to dismiss the case, said filing however did not appear to defense counsel until Monday June 9, 2014. The Motion, had it and it’s language been made known to Sinclair prior to Judge Reyes’ signing the Order of dismissal (Zamarripa provided copy of the Motion to Defense at the Courthouse on June 9, 2014 at approx. 1:15PM) Sinclair would have instructed defense counsel to file a response objecting to said motion based solely on the DA’s language of “without prejudice.” Had The matter actually gone before Judge Reyes as scheduled at 1:30PM June 9, 2014 (defense counsel attempted to ascertain whether the motion had been acted upon by the Judge so that he nor Sinclair would make a trip to court for nothing, but Zamarripa seemed to want to exact as much imposition and expense on Sinclair as possible, because even as late as 1:00pm the Court had not yet entered the Order signed by Judge Reyes and made defense appear at the courthouse for nothing) Sinclair would indeed have objected to the State’s motion to dismiss based on the language chosen by Deputy DA Zamarripa.

Sinclair will be publishing all documents obtained pertaining to this case as well as the discovery which the Pueblo District Attorney’s Office finally turned over but only after failing to do so in the time prescribed by law, and only after it was published on this site that discovery had not been produced. In researching the individuals involved in this case and the political jockeying that some engaged in with this case it was discovered that Deputy District Attorney Zamarripa had been arrested and booked in the Pueblo County Jail on Wednesday April 20, 2011 for a warrant out of Kansas for a bad check charge which was 9 years old and had never appeared in multiple background checks performed on her. Deputy DA arrested for bad check in addition it has been reported to us that Zamarripa was evicted by a previous landlord because of paying rent with bad checks even while employed with the Pueblo District Attorney’s Office ( we are currently pulling all available Colorado evictions records to ascertain if these reports are factual.
For more than Six (6) years people who are scared to publish things under their own names has used this case to make claims they were involved directly with the Pueblo District Attorney’s office in using this case to smear, attack, threaten and harass Sinclair, his family and friends who refer to themselves as the “Regulator’s” of something, just got regulated and relegated into the cesspool they rose from. While the Pueblo District Attorney’s office did not turn over the information requested pertaining to the phone calls, emails, faxes and messages between DA staff and these so called “regulators,” Sinclair does have plans to re-file the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act and Open Records Act request with the Pueblo District Attorney’s Office in the very near future. In addition Sinclair will pursue all avenues open to him legally whether criminal or civil as well as Judicial misconduct complaints against those who have in his opinion and belief engaged in misconduct. Sinclair intends to bring both State and Federal Civil actions against Stephen A. Jones (former Pueblo County Deputy District Attorney) as well as others over their abuse of power.
Sinclair will on Monday June 16, 2014 submit a written request to Pueblo County District Attorney Jeff Chostner asking that his office move to amend the language in the order of dismissal to “with prejudice” and if he refuses Sinclair will move to vacate the dismissal ORDER on the grounds that the Motion and order were filed and granted before the defense had been served a copy of the motion. Sinclair will move the Court to either change the language of the dismissal order or vacate it altogether and have his day in court to end this circus once and for all.
