Lawyers Claim Stockton Mayor Wasn’t Part Of Strip Poker Game


THE DAY BEFORE THE MAYOR GOES TO COURT FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER HIS ARREST, HIS ATTORNEYS ARE MAKING AUDIO RECORDINGS AND PICTURES FROM HIS PHONE PUBLIC. SILVA IS CHARGED WITH ILLEGALLY RECORDING A CONFRONTATION AT A STRIP POKER GAME. AND PROVIDING ALCOHOL TO MINORS. THE CRIMES HAPPENED WHILE THE MAYOR WAS WHO – – HOSTING A SUMMER CAMP FOR KIDS. WE SPOKE WITH THE ATTORNEYS ABOUT WHY THEY DECIDED TO RELEASE THE EVIDENCE AND HOW THE DA OFFICE IS RESPONDING. THEY TELL ME THEY WANTED HIS SIDE OF THE STORY TO BE OUT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AND IT COMES DOWN TO 30 POLICE AND POLITICS. I AM DONE WITH THESE DRINKING BITS. SHE DOES NOT LOOK TOO GOOD. THIS WAS SEIZED ON THE STOCKTON MAYORS PHONE. AFTER THE VIDEO BEGAN, THE PHONE WITH IT DOWN. THE RECORDING HE SAID WAS ACCIDENTAL. WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED IS THAT THE GAME WAS OCCURRING PRIOR TO THE MAYOR BEING PRESENT AND IT CONTINUED AFTER HE WAS NO LONGER PRESENT. I WANT TO GET PAID. FOR REAL. IT IS AN AMATEUR THING. YOU HAVE TO TURN IT IN. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND THE FBI DETERMINE THINGS DIFFERENTLY. AND THEY CLAIM HE WAS TRYING TO RECORD THE GROUP WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE. I THINK THE GAME IS OVER. IS IT REALLY? WHEN YOU ARE ALL NAKED. Reporter: HE INSISTS NO MINORS WERE PRESENT AND WITNESSES BACK UP THOSE CLAIMS. DO YOU BELIEVE IT WAS A LAPSE OF JUDGMENT – – JUDGMENT? WE HAVE NEVER EVEN THOUGHT WERE CONSIDERED OR CONTEMPLATED CHARGING SOMEONE WITH A CRIME FOR BAD JUDGMENT BECAUSE ONE JUDGE – – ONE PERSON’S JUDGMENT COULD BE GOOD AND ANOTHER COULD BE BAD. Reporter: PICTURES ON HIS PHONE – – ON HIS PHONE SHOWS WHAT APPEARS TO BE A GAME OF BEER PONG. STATEMENTS MAKE IT CLEAR ALCOHOL WAS THERE AND ONE PERSON SAID SILVA TOLD HER THAT HE BROUGHT THE BOOZE. SHOW ME IN THE PHOTO WHERE THEY ARE HOLDING A CUP NEAR THEIR LIPS. THE LEGAL TEAM BELIEVES THAT EVIDENCE IS BEING DISTORTED. THIS IS THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS INVESTIGATION I THINK I HAVE EVER HEARD OF. Reporter: WE CONTACTED THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY WHO SENT US A STATEMENT THAT READS IN PART WE CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN THE STRENGTH OF OUR EVIDENCE AND WE ALSO BELIEVE THE APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR THAT TO BE HEARD IS IN THE COURTROOM AND THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE TOMORROW IN SUPERIOR COURT. MAYOR SILVA IS SCHEDULED TO APPEAR TO BE ARRANGED.
