Two deputies leave DA's Office 3/8/2007
County Counsel Kim Kerr - Longtime employee of the county takes job in Ione
Like Stoen leaving, this is good news... "yougofree.com" Jeffrey Scwhartz is leaving the DA's Office, going in to private practice (No surprise since he has had his "practice" listed in the phone book for the better part of a year, while acting as a prosecutor, which should be a big no-no.) 8/31/07, yougofree.com is gone.
1/2008 Davina Smith moves to the County Counsel's Office.
9/25/08 Deputy District Attorney Kelly Neel, who has been handling the (Belant) case, will be leaving the office for another job at the County Counsel Office, Gallegos said. Reportedly back at the DA's Office after a stint at County Counsel.
1/5/10 Kathleen Bryson, now running against Gallegos... ◼ Local attorney throws hat in the ring for DA
Ben McLaughlin, gone.
Many more whose names were never even known to the outside world. Didn't last long enough to count as a blip. Who are they, drop us a note if you can add to the list.
