California AG fights inmate's petition for new hearing

Monache man maintains innocence in 1978 fatal shooting


A Native man who has been incarcerated in San Quentin Prison for 44 years claims a local superior court judge is taking unnecessary delays in ruling on his petition for an evidentiary hearing.

Douglas “Chief” Stankewitz, a Monache man from Big Sandy Rancheria, asked a state appellate court to intervene to force a hearing on the issues or dismiss the case.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta responded on Friday, June 24, by recommending that the state court reject the man’s request.
