Sheesh... In the town that prosecuted it's former mayor for handing out ammo and telling young gang members to kill blacks..... The DA fired his chief investigator for screwing up. The chief investigator then filed a wrongful discharge suit against the DA claiming she was fired fo complaining about the DA losing evidence, fixing criminal cases, used county funds for his personal use, sold criminal evidence to employees, provided official Asst. D.A. badges to friends so they could show them to police when stopped and claim they were on official business, even says he took payoffs and favors for doing or not doing his job, etc. Looks like an interesting local news year.
Quite frankly, I don't much care for either of the two, but a few years ago,I personally met with the investigator to complain about a mental patient who was shooting up the neighborhood, (Illegal possession of firearms, reckless endangerment etc.) She had an assistant investigator call me a week later and say there was no basis to my complaint. So I called the federal BATF and complained. The guy was arrested a few weeks later for illegally trying to buy a firearm and spent a year in the clink.

Sounds somewhat like Chicago years back. Did some gofer work for lawyer while going to college- told that Judges recommendation letter and my grades good would help get to law school. Judges that had seen my work- Murphy, Sullivan, Rosen charged in 'Greylord' scandal by federals. Lawyer made a deal for 2 years and cooperate, Rosen shot himself before sentancing, others averaged 5 years sentance, prosecuters that solicted 50.00 to 200.00 bribes in traffic court mostly deferred prosecution for cooperation. Things haven't changed much with the laws people- can get more courtesy from Outlaws. RN
