Nueces County DA facing shortage of more than a dozen prosecutors – Riverside, California

Riverside, California 2022-06-23 07:30:08 –

New obstacles have arisen as Nueces County courts plan to return to the pre-pandemic pace of jury trials. It is the District Attorney’s Office, which is rapidly losing the most skilled prosecutors.

Felony Attorney General Angelica Hernandez told the Judges Tuesday that her office had lost 13 prosecutors.

To make matters worse, she said three more prosecutors could leave in the coming weeks.

“There aren’t enough prosecutors to put people in court,” Hernandez said at a monthly meeting of judges.

Former district judge Hernandez said the staff shortage was a result of the lack of experienced prosecutors throughout the state, making it the “best product.”
