OF HAYWARD POLICE OFFICERS
December 3, 2003
Two Hayward detectives have been caught apparently framing
a defendant in a rape case. Here's what you can do if those
detectives have figured significantly in any of your cases.
In the case where they were caught, the detectives apparently
had deliberately removed exculpating material from police
reports and had deliberately used suggestive identification
procedures. The two officers have been on the force for
about 20 years.
The current status is this:
1. The two officers are Frank Daley (the main perpetrator)
and Rodney Posey.
2. No specific review procedures have been set up yet, but
the Alameda Public Defenders office will probably
be working with the Alameda District Attorneys office
to review cases in which Daley or Posey were involved. The
contact person in the Alameda Public Defenders Office
is Assistant Public Defender James Pandell. His contact
numbers are: Phone: (510) 670-5000. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mail: 24085 Amador Street, Room 205, Hayward CA 94544.
3. Mr. Pandell is very interested in hearing from any appellate
panel attorney who has had a case involving officers Daley
or Posey. He would like to know: (1) nature of the charges;
(2) whether conviction was by trial or plea; and (3) what
degree of involvement Daley and Posey had in the case. If
you can send him that information, he will take that case
to the DAs office and ask that it be reviewed.
In our office, Staff Attorney Richard Braucher is the contact
person if you have questions before you send information
to Mr. Pandell.
