he will give us some background on the current demoralization in the District Attorney’s office in Contra Costa due to the activities by our former District Attorney, Mark Peterson, which led to his indictment and recent resignation. Those problems included issues other than those subject of the recent indictment.
al and has obtained over 20 “life” sentences during that time. He has also had extensive management experience in the office.
Bill Murphy was a prosecutor in Contra Costa County for over 17 years, following in the footsteps of his father, who was a prosecutor for his entire career. Bill left the District Attorney’s office in April of 2016 due to his awareness of the serious problems in the District Attorney’s office because of the conduct of DA Peterson.
This topic is very important to all of us because of the importance of that office, the top law enforcement office in the County. We look forward to hearing inside insight on the problems caused by Peterson’s conduct, and upon the hope for restoration of the morale, unity and effectiveness of our District Attorney’s office.
