Meet Jon Hatami, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney. Jon was the lead LA County prosecutor who won a conviction in the murder of abused child Gabriel Fernandez.
Now Jon is OUTRAGED that new LA County DA George Gascon is targeting him.
"A lot of DDAs (deputy district attorneys) are really scared," said Hatami. "They are sending people to court to monitor what we say. They are working with the public defenders and alternate public defenders to intimidate us and document what we do and what we say."
The nearly 15-year veteran of the DA's office fought back tears as he criticized Gascon's Special Directive, which effectively ends cash bail, the death penalty and sentencing enhancements in all L.A. County prosecutions.
"I just don't understand why we're not trying to prosecute child murderers to the fullest extent of the law," Hatami said.
Jon called into John & Ken and gave an emotional reaction to the chaos that is coming in LA County thanks to George Gascon.
I smell a recall coming....
