District Attorney

As a representative of the People of the State of California, the District Attorney’s Office has the responsibility to prosecute all criminal matters in the County of Sonoma. We have a budget of nearly $22 million and a staff of more than 121 employees.

I am very proud of our dedicated attorneys, investigators, victim advocates, claims specialists and support staff who diligently serve the citizens of Sonoma County. We consistently apply equal justice under the law to protect our community and ensure that victims of crime are treated with compassion and respect.

I hope this information provides you with a better understanding of the criminal justice system.

FTC Settlement with University of Phoenix

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reached a settlement with the University of Phoenix based on deceptive advertisements that falsely touted their relationships and job opportunities with companies such as AT&T, Yahoo!, Microsoft and other companies. The school did not have relationships with these companies. According to the FTC this is the largest settlement that they have obtained against a for-profit school. $50 million of the $191 settlement will be used to provide consumer refunds and $141 million in debt forgiveness. The settlement will not affect students’ federal or private loans but assistance is available to apply for relief and repayment plans. These services are free and students should avoid debt relief scams that charge thousands of dollars for services to help with student loan debt when these services are available for free.
