ASA Kristi Bettendorf reitres Friday after 35 years, many of them ably running the pre-filing unit.
From a comment yesterday:
Kristi Bettendorf will retire, as of tomorrow, after 35 years at the SAO. She is one of the few remaining of the "old guard" from the days of Janet Reno. For over two decades she has supervised the Felony Screening Unit and other divisions of the SAO. Among her duties were PTI referrals and expungements.
Kristi trained her ASA's well and did not let them abuse their positions.
Those who practice criminal defense know her door was always open. She took your calls or met with you, listened to your pitch and made an informed and legal decision. Her answer was not always yes, but she always told you her reasons for saying no, and they were never retributive or delivered in a confrontational manner....
FANTASY FOOTBALL: Just a few spots left. Draft Monday evening. Fbpool12@gmail.com to try and nab one of the last remaining spots.

Enjoy your long weekend.
See you in court Tuesday ready to finish up the year!
