DAs, Police, Family of Slain Push for Death Penalty Changes

We made a commitment to the public. We made a commitment that we would fix the death penalty. That is something that we owe the citizens of the state of California, the murdered victims, and the victims’ families.

The frivolous appeals and the lack of getting them attorneys, I think it works for both sides, the victims and these defendants, that they get an attorney immediately when they are sentenced instead of waiting five years. That’s part of the delay.
