Calif. Prosecutors Quit in Protest of Soros-Funded DA’s Pro-Criminal Plea Deals

'I hoped that I was wrong. And now that her policies are playing out, I know that I wasn’t...'

(Headline USA) Several prosecutors have quit in protest from Oakland District Attorney Pamela Price’s office this week after she tried to slash a sentence in a triple murder case.

Price, a George Soros-funded leftist, brokered a plea deal earlier this year that would have reduced sentencing a triple-murder case from 75 years to life in prison down to just 15 years, ABC 7 News reported.

The perpetrator, 31-year-old Delonzo Logwood, was charged with gunning down three people in a murder for hire, carjacking and robbery. Logwood also allegedly killed a witness who was set to testify against his stepbrother.

An Alameda Superior Court judge threw out Price’s plea deal this week, but prosecutors in Price’s office say this is just the latest example of the leftist district attorney deliberately refusing to enforce the law to the fullest extent.

Charly Weissenbach, a former prosecutor in Price’s office, said she quit because she really “felt that lives would be lost because of Price.”

“I really did,” Weissenbach said. “And I hoped that I was being dramatic. I hoped that I was wrong. And now that her policies are playing out, I know that I wasn’t.”

Veteran prosecutor Jill Nerone also announced her resignation this month, citing her concerns about her ability to “protect the rights of victims” because of Price.

In another case of Price slashing a criminal sentence, unlicensed driver Cesar Garcia was able to enter into a plea deal after he caused a traffic accident and injured several people, including a pregnant woman who lost her 8-month-old baby as a result. He fled the scene and tried to report his car as stolen, according to court records.

Garcia was initially charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident and felony reckless driving with serious injury. But this month, Price offered Garcia a plea deal that allowed him to plead “no contest” to vandalism and serve just one year in county jail.

“Pamela Price and her administration are putting criminal defendants, criminal suspects before victims, before the community,” Weissenbach said.
