3 Charles R Garry Lecture Featuring James Egar Taking on the System on our Clients' Behalf Friday, December 12 th, 2014 San Francisco Nikko Hotel 5:00 6:00 pm The criminal justice system extends well beyond the courtroom walls. The treatment of our clients that occurs before the courtroom doors open and they enter and after they exit and the doors shut behind them is hidden from most views. Their conditions of punishment and confinement impact everything from the water they drink, to the life saving medicines they are supposed to receive, to their ability to harm themselves and to the ability of others to harm them. The criminal justice system has become the medical and mental health provider of last resort. The state prison system has been the subject of intense litigation for many years. Now, the battle lines have been extended more than ever before to include county jails. Realignment has not been implemented uniformly and in too many instances, unwisely. Jails designed for fixed numbers of inmates and short term detention have been packed to overflowing, and now are required to hold inmates for a decade or longer. They were neither designed for nor are they equipped to meet the demand. Counties frequently are overwhelmed and divert critical resources to everything but medical and mental health care, disability accommodations and the safety of our clients. Corners are cut and lives are lost or forever changed. We have begun to push back in federal court for remedies. The cost to care for inmates at constitutionally acceptable levels must be met. It will also increase the cost effectiveness of alternatives to incarceration such as supervision and treatment. James Egar James Egar is the Public Defender of Monterey County, California, and he is a certified Criminal Law Specialist with the State Bar of California. He is also a Professor of Law who has taught at the University of California at Davis Law School, Western State University Law School and the Santa Barbara College of Law.

He has been a plenary speaker at the conference of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals.

9 Congratulations 2014 Annual Upcoming to Awards our Events Award Luncheon Recipients Saturday, December 13th from 12:00-1:45 Nikko Hotel - San Francisco... And the award goes to...

As the author of Senate Bill 1010, Senator Mitchell s leadership paved the way for the elimination of a law which resulted in clear racial disparities in sentencing and her work on both Assembly and Senate Public Safety Committees has, and continues to be, fervent and encouraging. Co-Legislator of the Year Award Senator Ricardo Lara Democrat 33 rd District CACJ is pleased and honored to present Senator Ricardo Lara with our Scales of Justice Legislator of the Year Award for his leadership and commitment to the protection of individual rights and liberties in his service as Senator. Senator Lara s leadership on Senate Bill 1310 will have a significant impact on hundreds, if not thousands, of legal permanent residents (LPR) in our state. These LPRs will no longer have to be concerned about being deported if that individual commits a low-level, non-violent misdemeanors. Congratulations to our award recipients

10 Congratulations to our Award Recipients Significant Contributions to Criminal Justice Lifetime Achievement Award Albert J Menaster Los Angeles County Public Defender Al Menaster began his brilliant career with the Los Angeles Public Defender office the year CACJ began, 41 years ago. He has been one of the most tireless advocates on behalf of CACJ and its members ever since. Since the early 1980's he has written reviews of law related books, has been the Associate Editor of our Forum, the editor of three editions of CACJ s Contempt Manual, and has written his Tech column for the Forum since 1996, when modern technology was still forming. The head of LAPD's Writ Division these many years, he has argued before our California Appellate and Supreme Courts, written countless amicus and depublish requests, and been the go-to person by phone for most of us California defense attorneys when a legal issue arrives during trials or other urgent occasions. It isn t a complete year until we have heard his "Year in Review" at every annual Appellate and Fall seminar CACJ does. His brilliance and wit are simply astounding, and his sense of humor and perspective help us all cope with the difficulties of criminal defense. Award for Journalistic Integrity Larry Welborn The Dean of Courthouse Reporting The award for Journalistic Integrity, an honor rarely given, is rightly dusted off this year for a giant among men. Larry Welborn retired this year after forty three years as a courthouse reporter for the Orange County Register. Orange County, California, the third-most populous county in California, is a place known for its political conservatism. But Larry Welborn was unaffected by any politics. He was the beat reporter of a nearly bygone era who got it right and true. No one knew the ebbs and flows of the Orange County legal scene better than Larry Welborn, and likely, no one ever will. From his first assignment - the Manson Murder Trial, to the Angels Pitcher murder trial and beyond, Pulitzer-nominated Larry Welborn brought level, correct, fair reporting where others sensationalized. From his first day to his last, Larry was excited to work in the tiny, windowless courthouse bureau office to report on some new trial. And it seems that enthusiasm rubbed off on many reporters he inspired. But it never resulted in bias. Ever. Perhaps it was the influence of his father, a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer, but many criminal defense lawyers credit Welborn's reporting with bringing fairness to the system and to their clients. Forty Three years of reporting later, he is the most trusted reporter among the Orange County defense bar. Skip Glenn Award Scott Sanders Orange County Public Defender Sanders graduated from University of Wisconsin and Emory University Law School. He has been an attorney with the Orange County Public Defender's Office for twenty-one years, and currently serves as an Assistant Public Defender. Sanders is currently preparing for trial in two capital cases. In one of the cases, People v. Dekraai, eight people were killed in a hair salon located in Seal Beach. In January of 2014, the defense filed a motion, accompanied by fifteen thousand pages in exhibits, alleging misconduct both in People v. Dekraai and in multiple other serious cases. The motion also detailed the prosecution's improper use of an informant in the case, and the government's use of a jail informant program that repeatedly concealed its intentional violations of the Sixth Amendment. The trial court permitted four months of hearings in which numerous prosecutors and members of law enforcement testified. During the hearings, the District Attorney's Office admitted that discovery was withheld in a number of cases. The DA recently agreed to vacate a special circumstances murder conviction because of discovery violations detailed in the motion. In August of this year, the trial court denied the motion to dismiss the death penalty and a motion to recuse the Orange County District Attorney's Office. However, the court stated that "many of the witnesses who testified during the course of this hearing were credibility challenged. These witnesses include current and former prosecutors, as well as current and former sworn peace officers. Some perhaps suffered from "failure of recollection. Others undoubtedly lied." The court found that "serious" misconduct by the prosecution team warranted exclusion of the statements made to the informant for all purposes.

11 Congratulations to our Award Recipients Co-Legislator of the Year Award Senator Holly Mitchell Democrat 26 th District Senator Holly J. Mitchell was elected in 2013 to represent the 26th District in the State Senate. Mitchell serves on the Senate Rules Committee, the managing body of the State Senate, as well as the Budget, Insurance and Public Safety Committees. She chairs California's Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) and the new Senate Select Committee on Women and Inequality and also belongs to the Women's Legislative Caucus. Mitchell previously represented the 54th District in the Assembly, where she chaired the Assembly's Budget Sub-committee #1 on Health & Human Services and the Select Committee on Foster Youth, and was a member of the Committees on Health, Insurance and Public Safety. As the chief executive officer of Crystal Stairs for seven years prior to taking public office she championed statewide family-focused policymaking, while assuring access to quality affordable child care for 25,000 children and meeting a monthly payroll for hundreds of employees. Previously Mitchell worked in the Los Angeles district office of State Senator Diane Watson. As a policy analyst for the California Senate's Health and Human Services Committee, she sought fiscally sound ways to expand health care and other vital services. As the legislative advocate of the Western Center for Law and Poverty she helped develop the groundbreaking Healthy Families program, later serving as Executive Director of the Black Women's Health Project in Los Angeles. Co-Legislator of the Year Award Senator Ricardo Lara Democrat 33 rd District Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) was elected with overwhelming support in November 2012 to represent the Southeast Los Angeles County cities of the 33rd Senate District. Raised in a blue collar immigrant family in East Los Angeles, Ricardo knows first-hand the challenges facing the cities and communities of Southeast Los Angeles County. He is fervently committed to improving the quality of life for working families in California. A champion for educational equity, civil rights and immigrant rights, Lara has authored legislation chaptered into law by Governor Jerry Brown which improved the quality of life for California s working families by improving quality and access to education, protecting a woman s right to take pregnancy leave, ensuring greater government transparency and oversight, protecting taxpayer dollars and ensuring certain consumer protections. Prior to being elected to serve in the Legislature, Lara worked on the landmark AB 540, which made college education more affordable for immigrant students. Lara serves on the College Board s Hispanic Advisory Committee for Latino College Completion as well as the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education s Legislative Advisory Board where he and other educational policy experts and legislators help shape educational strategies aimed at improving access to, and retention in, higher education on a regional and national level. Mitchell carried CACJ co-sponsored Legislation: SB Lara carried CACJ co-sponsored Legislation: SB The Fair Sentencing Act; which was recently Misdemeanors: Maximum Sentence; which was signed by the Governor.
