You would think these two sh*theads are on security camera footage somewhere, and that someone in IV knows who they are. I hope the cops identify and arrest them soon.
On UCSB Police Release Sketch of Rape Suspects
Posted on February 28 at 11:22 a.m.
Somehow I don't see the University augmenting the UCSB Police Department's budget enough for them to hire five more police officers. I'm betting Chancellor Yang means he'll free up enough money for UCSB PD to hire five more CSOs. CSOs are UCSB students who work for the UCSB PD part-time. They don't cost anywhere near as much as police officers.
And, Indy, I believe it's the Clery Act, not the Clergy Act.

Well, blah, it seems to me that the police are reporting what is reported to them. If the police aren't told about a crime, then obviously they can't report it in their statistics or notifications. I don't think the police are trying to hide or suppress anything here, but your mileage may vary.

There are newer laws in effect requiring this, blah, hence all the notifications. See the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act", formerly the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act. The UCSB Police website has a link to the information they are required to release [police.ucsb.edu].

A conflicts check is standard procedure before an attorney can agree to represent someone, and Mr. Cappello no doubt knows this. His faded recollection explanation is disingenuous, and evidently Judge Anderle knows this, too.

So Mr. Genis tells the Dies supporters that they are "all on the same team" while at the same time doing all he can do to try to get his client off the hook.
"All on the same team." Yeah, riiight. This is total nonsense, and I hope no one is buying it.
"Reanimate" is a strange choice of words, too. It suggests to me that Genis really doesn't believe what he told the Dies supporters.
I understand that Genis has a job to do but at the same time trying to curry favor with supporters of the family of his client's victim strikes me as disingenuous and twisted. Mr. Genis evidently wants it both ways, and that just isn't possible.

Interesting and telling that just over half of the SBSO people listed as supporters on Sheriff Brown's website are also listed as retired and thus won't be working for him...

On ‘Willful Disobedience’ Penalties Sought for DUI Lawyer

The State Bar may indeed be self-serving hacks, but it does still have the power to take DG's license to practice law away from him, bimboteskie. I think DG should keep this in mind. He does not operate in a vacuum. Just my opinion; your mileage may vary.

I'm sure DG will appeal this ruling, and perhaps he or his attorney will find a way to beat it.
I find it telling that the panel remarked on DG's "lack of insight" into his own behavior, and I'm not surprised that DG's response was to accuse the panel of ineptitude and corruption.
Of course defense attorneys must zealously defend their clients, but IMO DG doesn't seem to understand that there are rules for how to act within the framework he works in. These rules are meant to be taken seriously, and most lawyers I've seen know how to behave.
The State Bar has the power to take DG's license to practice law away from him if he doesn't follow the rules. I wonder if his lack of insight will prevent him from seeing/understanding this before even more disciplinary action will be taken against him.
