The stepfather of a member of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is rumored to be on ice until the supervisor stands for reelection, later this year.
But maybe it just fell through the cracks of the overloaded justice system!
James Malcom Smith of San Bernardino was charged on November 8, 2013, for a violation of section 484(A), Theft of Personal Property, by the San Bernardino County District Attorney. The case reportedly involves the alleged theft of campaign signs in the city of San Bernardino.
The matter was referred by the San Bernardino Police Department.
Smith, a staunch supporter of outgoing Mayor Pat Morris, is also the Step-Daddy of Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford, who is also the current board chair.
Rutherford, who stands for reelection this June, has yet to draw an opponent.
Rutherford held a little morning get together at Sierra Lakes Country Club on Thursday morning. District Attorney Michael A. Ramos was listed as her guest speaker.
Court records indicated an arrest warrant hearing, was in held in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Steve Malone, on November 8, 2013.
No other entries can be found on the case docket. The case reflects as being “active”.
