For the first time in history, women will hold the top two jobs at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office.
Jackie Lacey – who was elected as the first woman and first African American DA earlier this month – has named Sharon Matsumoto as her chief deputy.
On Monday Lacey starts the job with the county enjoying its lowest crime rate in 60 years. But that doesn’t mean it’s an easy road ahead. Lacey joined KFWB’s Penny Griego and Phil Hulett to talk about some of the challenges, including the shift of inmates from state to local custody and court closures.
