I.e., it was not mailed and a false statement was presented to the court through its records in violation of 132. Sent to the California AG's office: Dear Public Inquiry Unit: I have in my hands physical evidence of a violation of Section 132 of the Penal code by a member of the Riverside District Attorney's office (I can name the most likely person). A violation of Section 132 is a felony. Seargent Secor of the Riverside office of the Sheriff Dept. informed me April 9, 2000 that the Attorney General is the only law enforcement agency which can investigate a complaint against a district attorney.
