As an Assistant U.S. Attorney and, before that, as a prosecutor in the Riverside DA’s office, I spent every working day putting criminals in jail.
While I was hard at work at the courthouse, holding criminals accountable, Sacramento politicians were hard at work passing laws to release the very same criminals from jail and out into our community. The dangerous policies of AB109, Prop 47, and Prop 57 are jeopardizing the safety of our community. We are already seeing the harmful effects of these policies in the sky rocketing rates of property crimes like burglary and mail theft. I will work hard to reverse these failed policies so that law enforcement officers can start putting criminal back in jail.
