DA Statement 8.17.23

Since taking office as District Attorney, there have been complaints made against me to the Office of the Disciplinary Administrator, an arm of the Judicial Branch. With the exception of the two currently pending, all other complaints have been dismissed.

In summary, these complaints have been filed by individuals who have disagreed with the policies I have instituted and the decisions I have made within the scope of my work as District Attorney.

With the dismissals, there were no findings that I engaged in any unethical conduct. No form of discipline was imposed against me in any of these matters.

I provide this information in the interest of transparency, as my ability to comment on such matters while they are pending is limited.

I remain committed to serving the public safety interests of the community while upholding the integrity of the legal profession, and I will continue to follow through on the promises I made to our community during my campaign for the office of District Attorney.

In other words, business as usual. Onward.
