Jackie Lacey Defeats Alan Jackson in Race for Los Angeles District Attorney

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 8-Nov-2012

Veteran prosecutor Jackie Lacey becomes Los Angeles County's first female and first African American district attorney.

Lacey touted herself as the only candidate with the experience to run the office of about 1,000 prosecutors. As a longstanding member of the District Attorney's executive management team, Jackie has reviewed almost every major case involving public corruption, police misconduct, organized crime, complex fraud and other crimes since 2004. She also served on the District Attorney's special circumstance committee for 10 years, reviewing evidence in every death penalty-eligible case in the office and recommending appropriate penalties in those cases. In March 2011, Steve Cooley selected her as chief deputy shortly before announcing his own plans to retire.
