Thank you to my family, long-time friends and all the new friends I made along my election journey. I truly appreciate all the support, enthusiasm and help you've unselfishly given to me throughout the past 11 months. I could not have been successful without all of you behind me.
With my deepest gratitude,
I am a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney in my 16th year of prosecuting criminal cases.
In my career, I have personally tried 70 jury trials, including special circumstances murders. While assigned to the District Attorney's Family Violence Division, I prosecuted cases charging spousal abuse, physical child abuse and other domestic violence crimes. As a trial deputy assigned to the Central Felony Trials Unit and subsequently at the Pasadena Branch Office, I have tried dozens of cases charging serious felony crimes involving complex legal issues. In my current assignment in the District Attorney's Public Integrity Division, I investigate and prosecute criminal misconduct by elected or appointed officials, election fraud, as well as governmental and public entity corruption.
I would be honored to serve the residents of Los Angeles County as your next Superior Court Judge. I am committed to bringing balance to the courts and integrity to judicial decisions. As a Superior Court Judge, I will uphold America’s core value of justice for all.
I look forward to meeting you in the months ahead and ask for your vote on June 3, 2014.
Thank you, again, for your support.
