The criminal and abhorrent behavior by former DA Myrl Serra would not have been discovered without the honesty and courage of four employees of this office. These individuals reported Serra’s crimes despite fears of being fired, disbelieved, ridiculed and damaged professionally. These four people are true heroes.
These four individuals deserve an apology fro the man who bullied, harassed, stalked, assaulted them, and subjected them to criminal extortion. Recent events and statements in court make it evident that no such apology will be made. This District Attorney, on behalf of The Office of the District Attorney, apologizes to each of these four individuals for the harm they have suffered and endured as employees of an Office in which both personal and professional conduct is rightly expected to be of the highest standards.
This District Attorney, with the assistance of these four courageous individuals and the rest of an outstanding staff, will continue to work hard to repair the extensive damage caused by Serra’s criminal conduct and gross dereliction of duty. We will restore the effectiveness of this Office in achieving justice for the honest and courageous victims of crime in this Judicial District who rely on us.
