Judge Ochoa’s son arrested for Heroin use and cover-up by an Assistant Sheriff at Metro
Clark County, Nevada
October 22, 2014
Judge Vincent Ochoa and his family cannot seem to stay out of the public eye, especially in an election year. This is a developing story and Veterans in Politics International (VIPI) will post more information as it comes available.
Our mission statement is stated as follows: To educate, organize, and awaken our veterans and their families to select, support and intelligently vote for those candidates whom would help create a better world, to protect ourselves from our own government(s) in a culture of corruption, and to be the political voice for those in other groups who do not have one.
A reliable source has reported to VIPI that Vincent Ochoa Clark County District Court Judge Family Division, Department S, has a son name Marcus (who is employed by the Crazy Horse III Strip Club). Marcus Ochoa was recently arrested for Heroin Use/Possession and having other drugs in his system on or about October 12, 2014 here in Las Vegas. Ochoa is no stranger to the criminal justice system having domestic violence convictions and stalking convictions (Las Vegas Justice Court 09F17854X). Ochoa’s child custody case is D-09-407478-C.
VIPI is in the process of getting the Police Event number from Metro (Event Number 141012-3116). The public has a right to know this information and VIPI is doing their diligence to get this report and release additional information when possible.
We now know the following: Judge Ochoa’s son Marcus was outside of his ex-girlfriends house (Janell Grady) for a child custody exchange (his/her child), on or about October 12, 2014. Ochoa was shooting heroin in front of Janell Grady’s house after a child exchange and likely was “high” while driving with the Parties’ minor child Mia (Judge Vincent Ochoa’s grand-daughter).
Janell Grady called the police to get Ochoa away from the house because she knew he was high. Marcus Ochoa then was seen “hunched over the steering wheel” according to our VIPI source.
Janell Grady called the police who went to check on Marcus Ochoa, who was found incoherent. Marcus Ochoa was eventually arrested for having illegal drugs in his system, including heroin. Ochoa was sent to the hospital where it is likely he would have died if it was not for Janell Grady calling the police to intervene as she knows he has a drug problem and has a stalking conviction.
Metro released him on OR (Own Recognizance) with no bail needed to be posted with a promise to return to a future Court date.
The question is why when someone is arrested for heroin use and possibly child endangerment/neglect be released on his own with no bail? Did someone call in a favor? One of the charges is for PCS (Possession of a Controlled Substance).
The truth is that a high ranking Metropolitan Police Officer to our understanding is the one that called Judge Vincent Ochoa about the situation and now it appears the entire incident has been swept under the rug or just covered up because it is an election year.
Why was it necessary to give Marcus Ochoa special treatment just because he is the son of a District Court Judge in the Family Division? Are these the types of political favors that should be allowed in Clark County? How is the general public supposed to have any respect for law enforcement when these back room deals are being made? Is Marcus Ochoa a danger to society and also himself at the present time?
For additional cover-up, Judge Ochoa’s wife Deb went through Marcus’ phone, car, and apartment to clean out anything incriminating. Moreover, Deb Ochoa got Marcus’ car out of impound (according to our sources).
This is important to know as this involves one elected official running for re-election (Judge Vincent Ochoa). The public has a right to know about our elected officials and candidates for public office.
Based on this, why wouldn’t Judge Vincent Ochoa take the “tough love” approach and see to it that no special treatment is given and that he goes through the criminal justice process like any litigant. Janell Grady has filed for a Temporary Protection Order against Marcus Ochoa and likely will file a motion for sole custody to protect an innocent minor child (Judge Ochoa’s grand-daughter) from harm’s way.
It appears there are favors between elected public official and Metropolitan Police Department that are being done to benefit others, but in the end hurt our society. Without the public awareness of these kinds of issues, this will be a growing epidemic. We as voters need to be aware of the dealings of certain people and be sure that they are not elected or re-elected to public office. As citizens, this is our duty.
VIPI already did a press release on Judge Ochoa “liking” litigants on social media that appears before him including their minor children, VIPI already did a press release on Judge Ochoa violating Nevada Custody Laws and because of that violation he loses a major Police Union Endorsement. We need our Judges to be honest and follow the law themselves before they are the ones enforcing laws and making decisions for our families; don’t you think???!!!
In other news on Judge Matthew Harter:
VIPI has done a Press Release on Matthew Harter Clark County District Court Judge Family Division Department N, using his Judicial Influence to shield his son from arrest for drugs, burglary, and weapons position, because of this violation. Judge Harter lost the endorsement of a major Police Union and the Fire Fighters Union whom he still displays on his campaign materials. Judge Harter is also under investigation with the Nevada Judiciary Discipline Commission.
In other news on Judge William “Bill” Gonzalez:
VIPI has done a Press Release on William “Bill” Gonzalez Clark County District Court Judge Family Division Department F for violating dozens of active duty servicemen Civil Relief Act and Constitutional Rights and strong arming attorneys into supporting his re-election campaign.
VIPI has endorsed each of these candidates when they were candidates applying for the Judges position and it is unfortunate that none of these Judges are doing the job that we have elected them to do.
Clark County Nevada we can do better and we should not ever tolerate a Judge nor elected official that believes they are above the law…

“Does Ross Miller Nevada Secretary of State owes an apology to all Nevada Veterans”
October 14, 2014
Veterans In Politics International (VIPI) demands, at the very least, an apology from Ross Miller for his egregious comments during a debate with Adam Laxalt candidate for Nevada State Attorney General, Friday night October 11th on the Vegas Public Broadcasting System (PBS). We also feel Ross Miller should immediately resign from the office of Nevada Secretary of State.
During the debate for Attorney General, Ross Miller was asked to respond to allegations of receiving inappropriate gifts and contributions while serving as Nevada Secretary of State. Instead of facing the questions regarding his own apparent misdeeds, Mr. Miller seemed to filibuster and stall, then deflected attention from himself, by attacking Adam Laxalt’s military service record (see link: http://www.vegaspbs.org/election-2014/attorney-general-debate/ at 39:10). The attack was made in such a disgusting and unprofessional manner that Mr. Miller may have disqualified himself from the office of Nevada State Attorney General.
The fact that Mr. Miller deflected attention from himself is appalling, what he said about Mr. Laxalt’s time in a combat zone is a low and desperate political tactic.
Mr. Miller used a US military veteran who had served our country in a war zone by attacking that veteran’s service record is unforgivable.
Ross Miller said “it seemed like you were processing paperwork” referring to Laxalt’s duties in Iraq as a Prosecutor/Jag Officer.
The fact is that several Jag Officers were killed in action while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past 12 years of war.
The fact is every member of the US Armed Forces was and is in mortal danger while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan from Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), mortars lobbed into base, suicide bombers, snipers, local friendly attacks, accidents and so on.
The majority of troops in the war is in support positions and are doing their duty as part of a team, it doesn’t matter what your Military Occupational Specialty is; you are a basic rifleman first and trained to take out the enemy at all cost.
Every cook, mechanic, truck driver, lawyer, doctor, and every member of our political party system is risking their lives in support of the mission.
Unfortunately Mr. Miller never served our country in the military nor in a combat environment, so he wouldn’t know nor understand this concept.
Mr. Laxalt served our country under very dangerous conditions and was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal. In addition, his Unit was awarded the Joint Meritorious Unit Award.
Laxalt’s team was in charge of more than 20,000 detainees during the surge, assisting with the detention and prosecution of thousands of war criminals and terrorists.
Mr. Miller owes the 339,000 Veterans and their families who call Nevada their home an apology for such an insanely stupid insult.
When Veterans In Politics held our candidate interviews for the 2014 elections, Mr. Laxalt graciously appeared and withstood our scrutiny in his bid to further serve our country in the office of Nevada State Attorney General. Mr. Miller didn’t even respond to the invitation, indicating his disdain for veterans (see link below).
VIPI Endorsement Interviews NEVADA STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL
Mr. Miller should thank Mr. Laxalt for the freedom to say insensitive remarks. After all, Adam Laxalt was prepared to die for Ross Miller’s right to free speech.
Mr. Miller, you are a disgrace and an embarrassment. You do not deserve the privileges secured for you by members of our military, whether they pushed paper or ammunition. They all volunteered to defend your freedoms. Resign immediately.
This brings us to another candidate who is trying to seek your vote.
The race for Clark County District Court Judge Department 32
On September 20th during the Veterans In Politics Talk Show Randy Tindall a Judicial Candidate for Clark County District Court Judge Department 32 made a comment about his opponent Rob Bare Clark County District Court Judge and a former Defense Council/Jag Officer in the Army, who served in The Incursion into Panama for “Operation Just Cause” indicating that Judge Bare’s military experience as a Jag Officer does not transition over into civilian court (see link: Veterans In Politics: 09/20/14: Ron Q. Quilang, Co-Host; Randall Tindall Candidate for Clark County District Court Judge Department 32 and Ron Knecht Candidate for Nevada State Controller – See more at: http://www.vegasallnetradio.com/veterans-in-politics.html#sthash.cCGjoEui.dpuf ).
No person should ever use a US military combat veteran as a scapegoat, but when an elected official does it, that elected official reveals a character that should not hold public office as a representative of the people….people who include veterans.
The negative remarks made by anybody against our US Veterans are unforgivable especially coming from people that never served our country!
Thank You Adam Laxalt, Judge Rob Bare and all Nevada Veterans for your service.

Every election year we spend thousands of dollars out of our own pocket and hundreds of hours out of our own time to educate the public on candidates that are running for elected office.
We do this by taped interviews of the candidates, placing the interviews on social media, interviewing candidates on the radio, host mixers, press release, and placing commercials.
Every year we have haters, we have people that are being paid to be on one side over another, we have people that will ride your coat tail for one reason or another and we have people that don’t do a dame thing but complain!
The one thing that we have noticed is that those people come and go, but Veterans In Politics has been educating voters for the past 21 years, longer than most of the haters, users and complainers.
There are two types of people in this world the ones that are willing to stand alone to make this community a better place and the scared rabbits that run to the most powerful to protect their own ass or just run away.
One thing that is true in politics and life at the end of the day look around and see who is standing next to you, those are your friends everyone else are phonies!
