San Mateo County Counsel: Contact Attorney General about disciplined prosecutor
Original post made by Holly L on Apr 3, 2013
Following the news about the Bar's discipline, at the suggestion of a San Mateo Supervisor, several crime victims' families and other citizens have written to the Supervisors about Mckowan's violation of Marsy's Law on THREE cases.
The citizens have been notified by San Mateo County Counsel that they need to direct their "allegations" about Mckowan to the California Attorney General.
But the crime victims' families have already gone to the AG, back in August, 2011, after San Mateo District Attorney ignored all complaints about the violations about Mckowan.
In 2011, the AG told the citizens to go to the California Bar.
County Counsel stated in a letter to one citizen that a "substantive response to your allegations would involve an inquiry as to the official duties of a district attorney. If your allegations proved accurate, a proper response could include the provision of directions to the District Attorney's office as to how to discharge its official duties."
Now that there have been news reports about the Bar's discipline, will Kamala Harris take up this case?
