In response to “Defense attorney launches challenge to Stanislaus DA” (Nov. 20, Page A1): Frank Carson is one of our most respectable attorneys in Stanislaus County. During my career in law enforcement, I met Carson after watching him perform in courtroom trials. I formed an opinion that he had intriguing strategies, was very effective with his well-prepared tactics and thought-out plans to produce his evidence in order to defend his clients.
I came to know Carson as an honorable man with high morals with strong ethics. I’ve always felt fortunate to have known Carson, even though he was on the defense while I was on the prosecution side. I will support Carson as he runs for district attorney.
I was upset to learn his office became a victim of a break-in after the news article was published. I’m confident he will succeed and his many current and retired peace officer friends will support him.
