Thurston Narcotics Detective Arrested for DV, Imprisonment

Thurston County’s DV industry has begun eating its children: The Daily Olympian wouldn’t report Ruben S. Mancillas’ name as the Thurston Sheriff’s narcotics detective arrested for DV and unlawful imprisonment because (they claimed) he hadn’t actually been charged yet.  The paper didn’t mention a special setting before judge McPhee (normally Sutton & Tabor currently preside over the Superior Court criminal calendars) where, after setting a $10,000 bail, the judge warned the newspaper not to photograph Mancillas because it might interfere with his undercover work. Prior Restraint?…maybe:

Early 30’s (dob: 11-7-77), Hispanic, married, member of the SWAT team, and now facing a class C felony in the DV judicial-courthouse industrial complex dominated by stalwarts such as Jennifer Lord, esq. & Co.

Thurston County Sheriff’s Narcotics Detective Out on Bail by JEREMY PAWLOSKI | Staff writer • Published November 16, 2011

The contrast between how this case (#11-1-01784-6) is being handled and the matter of Thurston’s DV Prosecutor, Jennifer Lord charging a Good Samaritan for accommodating a disabled woman in the public hallway of the Thurston Family & Juvenile Courthouse (#11-1-01711-1)  is stunning.  Every effort is being made to hide the identity of the detective facing serious criminal charges while the Samaritan is being pilloried for simply rendering aid and assistance in a public space.

Of course, Mr. Mancillas may be entirely innocent and exonerated. No arraignment has been set to date. But while Mr. James Dixon, his attorney, has already filed a motion for discovery, the Samaritan waits for his and is told he may not even have a copy under CrR 4.7.  Motions are filed for Mancillas BEFORE arraignment while the Samaritan is told by Krystal Rowland (judicial assistant to judges Tabor & Sutton) that he cannot file motions prior to being arraigned…apparently that limitation doesn’t apply in the Mancillas case.

In order to clarify the dramatic differences between how outsiders and pro se defendants are handled compared to one of their own with a local attorney (James Dixon), the opening details of the Mancillas case and ongoing ones for the Samaritan will be published right here:

No ‘SEALED’ records here and NO demand for Discovery, unlike the well oiled Mancillas defense.

UPDATE:  It should come as no surprise that the double standard of jurisprudence rendered by the Prosecutor in Thurston County would take care of its own (Sara Dotson and Ruben Mancillas) as revealed by the following events. Apparently they have not taken to eating their children yet, just yours.

No charges for Thurston detective

An undercover Thurston County narcotics detective arrested last week on suspicion of unlawful imprisonment, domestic violence will not be charged with a crime, Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said Wednesday.

The Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office declared a conflict of interest in connection with the detective’s Nov. 15 arrest, and the charging decision was left to the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney Jon Tunheim said.

The detective, 34, who had returned from a 15-month Army deployment in Afghanistan in October, was accused of refusing to let his wife out of their bedroom during an argument, court papers state.

Lindquist said in a phone interview Wednesday that his office will not file any criminal charges against the detective in connection with the case because it “cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he restricted her movement.”

Lindquist added that his office had a follow-up conversation with the detective’s wife, and she said that her husband “did not restrain her and she was free to leave” during the argument.

According to court papers, the woman had a different account of what had happened when she spoke to a Lacey police officer who responded to another domestic dispute at her and her husband’s home the night of Nov. 13.

On that date she told the Lacey officer that, during the Nov. 8 argument, her husband had blocked the door, and told her: “You aren’t going anywhere. We are going to figure this out,” court papers state. She added that during the Nov. 8 argument, he had placed a revolver on the bed, according to court papers.

Also according to court papers:

The woman had called police on Nov. 13 to report that her husband had a gun out during a dispute. The detective also called police, and said “his service pistols are on his bed and that his wife was intoxicated and his duty weapon were in his bedroom.” He also reported that his wife hit him.

The detective’s wife later told a Lacey police officer that they had been married for 13 years, but had been verbally arguing “almost every day” lately.

The detective’s attorney, James Dixon, had said in a prior interview that his client was innocent of the allegations against him.

Thurston County Sheriff’s Lt. Greg Elwin said Wednesday that the detective will remain on paid administrative reassignment pending the outcome of the sheriff’s office’s internal investigation into the allegations against the undercover detective.
