Gascon responds to pressure: Backs off some controversial policies



Newly-Elected DA Says He Will Allow Sentencing Enhancements

(Los Angeles, CA) — The newly-elected district attorney in Los Angeles County is already reversing one of his controversial policies after significant backlash. George Gascon says he will now allow his prosecutors to seek sentencing enhancements for some major crimes. Those include sexual assault, hate crimes, child abuse and elder abuse. As a progressive District Attorney, Gascon has set out to make major changes to his office. Many of those decisions are leading to a backlash among deputy DAs, police and other groups. Gascon insists the voters spoke by electing him in November.
