Mike Hestrin Candidate for Riverside County District Attorney Joined by Supporters
Mike Hestrin, who has been endorsed by every law enforcement organization in Riverside County was surrounded by friends at the patio of the Tack Room , Indio Empire Polo Club. Hestrin who is also fluent in Spanish gave a presentation of his goals for Riverside County law enforcement. At a time when crime has up ticked significantly in the county with the highest crime rate in California and 10,000 identified gang members, Hestrin lamented the fact the Gang Task Force was slashed significantly by the current DA and he has endorsed the early release program. There are convicted criminals who have served as little as ten days of multiple year sentences after taking advantage of several loop holes. Hestrin stressed his desire to change the conviction and enforcement approach to slow recidivism wherever possible.
