D.A. candidate campaigns in Murieta

Anne Marie Schubert

Anne Marie Schubert, running for Sacramento County district attorney, answered questions for 15 people in a meet-and-greet Tuesday evening at the RMA Building.  Schubert, an assistant district attorney who has been in the D.A.'s office for 24 years, was introduced by former Sheriff Glen Craig.  She said the biggest challenge facing law enforcement is realignment -- the state effort to reduce the number of people behind bars, which she predicted will mean more crime as criminals are released to the community.  Schubert emphasized her experience, saying she has handled more than 100 jury trials, supervised other members of the office and headed up the child-abuse unit.  She faces two candidates in the June election.  Schubert has won the backing of the Bee as well as District Attorney Jan Scully, Sheriff Scott Jones, several former judges and others.
