San Jose: Ruling finds DA’s right-hand man committed misconduct

SAN JOSE — In a scathing opinion published Thursday, a state appellate court reversed a judgment against a felon accused of being a sexually violent predator, saying the prosecutor handling the case — now District Attorney Jeff Rosen’s right-hand man — engaged in a “pervasive pattern” of misconduct.

The misconduct finding against Chief Assistant District Attorney Jay Boyarsky is the first black mark against Rosen’s administration since he took office two years ago on an ethics platform and appointed Boyarsky as his top assistant. Full Article

Ithink Jessica law is just a way of spending more of Califirnias money. That’s the reason California is in
I have a serious question for you, What child or anyone for that fact be in a PARK or SCHOOL at night?
California just think of laws and add them to the Budget. these so called sex offenders are living in
the ditch due there is no compiant housing for them there has to be some changes.

Santa Clara County and Orange County are two counties no one wants to offend in. My experience is with Santa Clara/San Jose and there, the police lied, the DA “lost evidence” and my attorney rolled over for the bad DA. When you’re scared and broke, you take what you get I suppose.

@Fish…Yes, police lie, so what? That’s what I was told by a retired DA. Police are also the largest single profession that comitts sexual misconduct, more than teachers/coaches, far more than RSO’s that “reoffend”. This legal system of our works when staffed by moral citizens, but no crime doesn’t pay. Crime is big business and full jails/prisons mean big money to way too many people. It’s far easier to manufacture criminals than it is to do good police work and stop crime. I do have a bone to pick with dishonest cops, but I also have the statistics to back it up so I’m not talking out my a**. A 16 yr old girl is far more likely to be molested during a traffic stop than she is in a library or a park. Most people think that cops are here to protect and serve, we know differently.
