      Loretta gets lots of public safety union money. That tends to buy silence.

        Plus, Loretta is for sale to the highest bidder. She could care less about corruption in the OC.

    This story just goes from bad to worse.

    I wonder if Sandra Hutchens still believes this is not a scandal? The notion that she still intends to run for reelection as Sheriff in 2018 is beoming comical. SNL could do a skit on it.

    The reputations of justice systems and those who enforce our laws in 1st world nations are supposed to be beyond reproach. If the justice system cannot be trusted by the populous society can no longer with a straight face call itself “civilized” .

    If this was just one isolated case, that would be one thing. But this is turning out to be an invasive and pervasive cancer that has compromised multiple criminal cases involving convicted murderers and other heinous violent criminals.

    And Sandra tells us all that’s needed is more training for the deputies. ha. We should expect more from our leaders, particularly those who were hired to clean up corruption – not turn a blind eye to it. Shame on her.

    I only hope that the victims of the violent criminals who are being set free or having their sentences reduced allowing for eventual release from prison or getting new trials stop blaming Defender Scott Sanders for these travesties of justice and start pointing their fingers in the right direction.

    Love him or hate him, Sanders is doing a superb job for his salary. He could have easily stayed out of the limelight by avoiding all these legal issues and received the same pay as a PD. But he chose to provide his clients with the best defense possible. That’s his job. The man truly deserves a standing “O”.

    At least we have a couple leaders in OC who want to maintain a civilized and credible justice system.

    Goethals for DA. Sanders for Superior Court Judge.

    “Since Sanders’ revelations in the Dekraai case, there have been more than a half-dozen such cases where convictions were reversed — including that of Henry Rodriguez, 39, an Anaheim man imprisoned for 18 years for the 1998 murder of a pregnant Fullerton woman.”

    Public officials held accountable: ZERO.
