This part of the video of the 3-19 debate has been voluntarily withdrawn over a safety issue. We expect that one of these candidates will be making a public statement about this safety concern. We will add that as soon as it becomes available.
Mission Statement: We dedicate ourselves, while recognizing the dignity of all individuals, to objectively and effectively investigate and prosecute matters under the Law to achieve justice and to minimize trauma to victims.
Salary for District Attorney is $159,910
Incumbent: Vern Pierson: He has been the office holder since 2007 winning against Gary Lacy with 62% of vote. This is the first time he has faced a challenger.
The Challenger is Judson Hernry, owner of Judson Henry, Attorney at Law. Judson has been practicing law for over a decade and has never had a single Bar complaint.
Incumbent, 7 years: Vern Pierson.
Statement: Pierson continues to teach trial advocacy and the laws of evidence to California prosecutors. He annually updates his book, the California Evidence Pocketbook that is published by the California District Attorneys Association and used daily by prosecutors throughout the state. Vern also serves on CDAA’s Legislative Committee and is often asked for opinions on proposed and newly introduced legislation effecting public safety and victims rights. Recently, he drafted A.B. 141 (Cohn), which expands the use of propensity evidence in child abuse and domestic violence cases.

Challenger: Judson Henry.
Statement: "The DA's job is to prosecute crimes. It is that simple. It is not to play favorites, reward friends, punish enemies, or to play politics in any way." Judson explained that he was not in for the politics, he was in it because he is against the politics! He is running because he objects to the politics in the DA's office. Henry laid out his concern about the DA and the DA's office in El Dorado County. That the office should only prosecute "real" crimes and not look for crimes, that may have been made inadvertently, just to make political points. This is a line of thought made most famous by respected jurisprudence expert Robert Jackson. Jackson’s view of the prosecutor rigorously detached from politics, who conducts a case without even a suggestion of political motivation, reflects the American ideal.
