I was informed by the Pend Oreille County Public Records Officer today that she was placing 95 documents responsive to my PRR regarding the arrest of Scott Maclay by Sheriff Knezovich on September 23, 2017 in the mail today. Those records could prove to be quite interesting. Once I received the call from the Public Records Officer I did contact the Pend Oreille County Prosecutors Office to attempt to learn whether a decision had been made to charge Scott Maclay and was told that the case was still “under review” and a decision to charge Maclay was “pending”. Unfortunately, for me at least, another PRR will be required once a decision is finally made.
The original arrest report of Maclay was 38 pages, however my PRR to Pend Oreille County was a request for any and all responsive documents which includes emails, text, and voice messages, etcetera and not just the arrest report. When I make requests like these 95 pages of documents is not out of the ordinary, and in many cases considerably less. I will review the documents I receive in the next couple of days and report on what I find.
