“Today Attorney General Becerra took a crucial step to pursue an outside audit and independent review of the use of the CalGang database–something that Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey should have called for long ago. Instead, our District Attorney regularly continues to rely on this shaky evidence to pursue gang enhancements that disproportionately impact our Black and Latino communities.

“Integrity of convictions must be a priority for our District Attorney’s office, and it begins with the integrity of the evidence presented in court. One innocent person wrongfully convicted is one person too many.”
