Imagine my surpise...

When I learned that Doreen Boxer, a former colleague from the Legal Aid Society was just named the first woman public defender in San Bernardino County California. Doreen was a good lawyer back in the early 90's when I started and has obviously kicked some serious ass since. She'll oversee a $24 million dollar program and a staff of about 200 people.


John Roth--the former PD that Doreen is replacing...

So let's see, Kathleen Rice is now the DA in Nassau, Doreen Boxer is the PD of San Bernardino and me? I'm clearly getting old.

I have to disagree with the skeptics. Doreen was a pugnacious advocate with a lot of heart, a lot of smarts and whether or not she has administrative experience, she'd be a terrible choice if people were looking for a puppet. For whatever it's worth, my educated guess is that she'll be tough and smart and capable and very unlikely to be pushed around.

I am sad to say that Doreen Boxer was forced to leave her position as Public Defender San Bernardino County on December 10, 2010.

We were delighted that the County finally forced out this bimbo and her sociopathic assistant.

No one in the Public Defenders Office was sad to see her or her assistant, Lauri Ferguson, get fired
