Silva's Attorneys File Challenge

Anthony Silva's Attorneys File Challenge 

Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva’s defense attorneys filed a court document this week challenging legal documents filed against him in his criminal case in Amador County. Silva was arrested August 4 at his Amador County youth camp in Silver Lake on charges that he had inappropriate contact with teenagers, including drunken game of strip poker. Defense attorneys complain that the Amador County DA’s office is failing to provide all of the discovery they are entitled to. They also said the audio recording that is a key piece of evidence can’t be used because Silva pocket dialed and didn’t know he was recording. Amador County chief Assistant DA Robert Trudgen says they have turned over everything they can right now that they feel is within the scope of the case and will turn over anything more the court orders if they do.
