An especially brutal series of 4 murders in Orange County began in 1980 through 1986.  Several more eerily similar killings occurred in three other California counties.  

ADA Debora Lloyd had served with the OCDA for 28 years, handling sexual assault and homicide cases, before taking charge of the fledging DNA unit.

Seven years into her retirement, ADA Lloyd was called back to apply her DNA expertise to track down the man dubbed the Golden State Killer.

On Wednesday, March 10 @ 6:00 pm, ADA Lloyd will join us via ZOOM to share that story.

Joining us also that evening will be sitting Orange County District Attorney, Todd Spitzer. who will introduce ADA Lloyd and Judge Rogan who will present a brief State of NJC.

Our Zoom Room will be available 30 minutes early @ 5:30.

Close to four dozen NOCBA members and guests attended our November 18th Zoomcast to see Assistant Presiding Judge, Erick Larsh speak, and to hear about changes to our court system expected when Judge Larsh becomes Presiding Judge this coming January.

In his presentation, Judge Larsh, addressed topics including the statewide revenue shortfall, the continuing impact of the Covid pandemic, and the court closures/furloughs.

Judge Larsh was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as a judge of the Orange County Superior Court in 2005. He has served as Supervising Judge at both the Central Justice Center and the West Justice Center, and as Supervising Judge for the Domestic Violence Courts. Currently he sits as Assistant Presiding Judge, a term he began in January 2019.

In praising his colleague’s time as Assistant Presiding Judge, the Honorable Jeff Ferguson praised Larsh’s “ingenuity and foresight in weathering and helping to tame the Covid 19 storm battering our courts.”

NOCBA President, Jeff Kent, in announcing Judge Larsh’s participation in the Zoomcast, noted his tenacity, stating that “few people would be willing to take on the challenge the court has faced this past year and will probably continue to face in the foreseeable future. I have the utmost confidence that Judge Erick Larsh is up to the task.”

We hope you will join us for this informative event to give you an idea of how our courts will continue to be operated through all this turmoil.
