I am informed by a usually reliable source that, contrary to popular perception (and my implication here), counting scalps was not a big thing in the Holmes / Rosenthal / Siegler DA’s Office. Wins and losses were not a big factor.
By contrast, he says, prosecutors in the Lykos DA’s Office are afraid to dismiss bad cases because dismissals are counted against them. So in his view the transition to the Mike Anderson DA’s Office will be an improvement where the counting of scalps is concerned.
One less thing for the criminal-defense bar to worry about?
