Primary Opponent Brett Murdock Endorses Spitzer for DA

 

Murdock Supports Spitzer’s Commitment to Update the DA’s Antiquated and Failed Policies that Jeopardize Victims and their Families

 

 

 

Orange County August 1 –Today, former DA primary opponent and victims’ rights attorney Brett Murdock endorsed Todd Spitzer for Orange County District Attorney. Murdock earned 22.4% of the vote in June’s Primary Election. With Murdock’s votes and the share of vote Spitzer garnered in June that easily puts Spitzer in a winning position in November.

 

Brett Murdock said, “This decision was a clear choice. Todd Spitzer has my 100% support and I urge every citizen in Orange County to vote for him in November. Todd is the change we need, and I am completely confident he will always put the people’s safety first, not his own political interests.”

 

“I’m honored to have Brett’s full support. We both agree that the people of Orange County deserve a new District Attorney - someone who brings bold, fresh leadership and will always have the courage to do what’s right,” stated Todd Spitzer.

 

Spitzer continued, “Brett and I also agree that the DA’s office needs numerous policy updates such as providing the latest training to the rank and file deputies, empowering them to do the right thing--not simply bowing to political pressure.”

 

Murdock concurred with Spitzer that numerous policies must be updated in the DA’s office such as:

 

  • The use of a snitch program will be utilized only with the strictest adherence to the lawful use and with the complete production of documents provided to the defense during a prosecution where an informant was utilized. Spitzer agrees to work to implement recommendations coming from the ACLU litigation presently pending in Federal District Court.
  • The DA’s office will make a significant investment in proven and effective rehabilitation efforts such as collaborative courts, youth programs, and in-custody job training programs in order to stop the revolving door of recidivism.
  • Prosecutors will be held to the highest ethical standards; will eliminate the “win at all costs” mentality of the current administration and evaluate prosecutors based on the “whole prosecutor and his/her contribution to the team” and not solely based on trial record and conviction rate.
  • Will implement robust new policies and procedures that end the culture of sexual harassment in the current DA's office and the mistreatment of women.
  • Will implement risk assessment tools and detention release criteria to evaluate what appropriate bail, if any, should be required to ensure the attendance of the defendant during criminal proceedings.
