DA Nancy O'Malley receives award for "contributions to the field of victims’ rights"

Original post made by Jtjh, Vintage Hills Elementary School, on Apr 14, 2014

IT seems that the Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O'Malley has won two national awards. One is for her "contributions to the field of victims' rights".

Nancy O"Malley is, of course, the DA who decided it was inappropriate to bring any prosecution in the case of David Lamont, who was left in a coma after confronting rowdy teenagers outside his Pleasanton home.

There is currently a link to the press release about the awards on Alameda County's home page for the DA:

This news should be on the PW's front page. It's a shame to be notified of this by such a knucklehead as JTJH.

Once again folks, if O'Malley had enough evidence in the David Lamont case, she would have prosecuted. She did not so she could not. I appreciate, especially today, April 15, that my tax dollars are spent on cases the D.A. knows she can win. Congratulations on your award Ms. O'Malley. Well deserved.

It was on her watch that William Hogarty was FINALLY charged and put out of business after years of the fraud, grand theft, conspiracy and other felonies. 16 to be exact. I just hope she stands her ground and doesn't let him off with just a short jail stint because he is already involved in a real estate company and mortgage company after surrendering his license to do so. If he gets off light, he will just do the same thing i think. Heck, it doesn't even seem he's waiting for the case to be resolved. I worked for him many years ago and I feel he needs to be in prison for years and away from the drugs and steroids some people say he does. I haven't personally seen this, but a recent photo on his FB page might give some clues.

I'm actually going to the next pre trial hearing. He won't know who I am anyway.
