Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas Worst in State

August 9, 2017


Orange County –A study just released by Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project finds the public safety of Orange County left exposed under Rackauckas’ leadership, ranking the District Attorney as worst among all California counties for conviction reversals per capita. The report’s damning statistics continue to reveal Tony Rackauckas’ ineptitude as he is “ranked in the top five among all California counties for the total number of misconduct findings (3rd), the total number of reversals (2nd), and for the most misconduct findings per capita (5th)”. Under Rackauckas’ watch, murder and attempted murder cases have had penalties reduced and convictions thrown out meaning dangerous predators are back on our streets.


This is not the first time Rackauckas’ leadership failure has been exposed. The OC Grand Jury referred to Rackauckas as running the office with a "failure of leadership" and practicing as "a lazy law firm". (Orange County Grand Jury, June 2017).


"The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is in a state of crisis because of the complete failure of leadership over many years by Tony Rackauckas" said Patrick Dixon, a retired Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney. He continued, "It is clear from my reviews of the OCDA that Mr. Rackauckas lacks the ability to manage a "big city" prosecutor's office. His refusal to listen to the advice of many stakeholders in the Orange County justice system clearly demonstrates that he has put his own political ambitions above the safety of the citizens of Orange County."
