Lauren Redfern, 26, was sentenced Tuesday.

Redfern, 26, was arrested after she was caught by the school’s athletic director having sex with a student in the teacher’s restroom. At the time Redfern was charged with two felony counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust with a pattern of sexual abuse, a class 3 felony.

“They were caught in a room they shouldn’t have been in together and that’s what started this investigation. And they admitted what was going on,” Eagle County Undersheriff Mike McWilliams told CBS4 shortly after Redfern’s arrest. Please continue @: http://tinyurl.com/ctcqgr9

Howard Dickstein / Jeannine English

Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English — who served as a “public member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors since 2006 — is no longer part of the board, TLR has learned.

English is married to Howard Dickstein –  a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry.

Recently, both Dickstein and English were named as defendants in two separate RICO suits —  advanced by  Spire Law Group and Dan Dydzak.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

Spire Law Group RICO Act Suit Against Alleged Racketeers Howard Dickstein, Spouse Jeannine Dickstein (AKA Jeannine English) , Douglas Winthrop, and Tom Girardi of Girardi & Keese

Rumsey Band Rancheria vs. Howard Dickstein In a civil action filed against Attorney Howard Dickstein, spouse of State Bar of California BOG member Jeannine English, it was alleged Dickstein engaged in “a course of dealing that involved breaches of trust and violations of duties of the most basic, and, indeed, sacred kind.” Including, but not limited to, using the client’s plane for personal trips to the south of France, Big Sur and Grand Prix events in Monte Carlo and Montreal for which he owes the client $1.2 million. In statements to the media, Howard Dickstein referred to the allegations as a “pack of lies,” while disparaging his client. Dickstein also stated that he plans to fight the suit and “fight hard.” Appearing on behalf of defendant Dickstein was Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest.

Lastly, amid conflicting reports and unanswered questions, The Leslie Brodie Report has launched a journalistic inquiry into persistent rumors Howard Dickstein was extended an offer to join Barack Obama’s White House.

    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them.

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels.
