Laker Legend Endorses Lacey for LA County DA

Magic Johnson announced his support of Jackie Lacey, who will square off against Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson in a runoff Nov. 6.

Basketball legend and businessman Magic Johnson today endorsed Jackie Lacey for Los Angeles County district attorney.

"Jackie Lacey is, by far, the best candidate for Los Angeles County District Attorney," he said in statement.

Lacey and Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson, the top vote getters in the June primary, will square off in a runoff Nov. 6.

A Los Angeles native and USC Law School graduate, Lacey has worked for the D.A.'s office since 1986. She has tried about 60 felony cases, including 11 homicides and the county's first trial of a race-motivated hate crime, according to her campaign.

Jackson, perhaps best known for his murder prosecution of music producer Phil Spector in 2009, has been with the District Attorney's Office for 17 years and is assistant head deputy of the office's Major Crimes Division.

Jackson, who has led the prosecution of nearly 70 felonies, has said he would seek to repeal AB109 -- the state's move to reassign responsibility for low- level offenders to counties -- and allow counties to contract with out-of- state correctional facilities.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has endorsed Lacey.

Now I know to vote for Alan Jackson. Jackie Lacy is a Liberal that wants to water down 3 Strikes and is anti-death penalty. Pamela Harris is a HUGE Liberal, that figures. This is a big switch for me, normally I look to Magic Johnson for good legal and public policy advice because he has so much experience in it [end of sarcasm].

Your legal articles always make me to admire. Seriously, especially ones regarding criminal law. You are a good lawyer, aren’t you? I would hire you If I need services of criminal attorney. That is why you may submit your contacts to my attorney directory with smart descriptions of attorneys’ experience. Jus look at the category with Arkansas criminal attorneys http://attorney-online.info/dir/criminal/arkansas/386 If you know good lawyers (I am sure you do), they also can submit their contacts to this directory and write their legal news, articles and blog posts.
