District Attorney George Gascón has announced that Richard Turner was charged today for sexually assaulting 10 girls while he worked at two schools in Los Angeles.

“A school is a place where our children should feel safe and protected by those who we are supposed to trust,” District Attorney Gascón said. “It is crushing for the victims’ families and our education system when someone takes advantage of a youth.

I am grateful for the young women who stepped forward in this case to recount what happened to them. My office’s Bureau of Victim Services will provide any needed services or resources to help them on the path from being a victim to becoming a survivor.”

The victims had their sense of safety shattered,” District Attorney Gascón said. “The majority of the people victimized were from the Asian American Community and I know that this has caused significant community trauma. I hope that all of those who have been impacted by this spree of violence sleep better tonight knowing that those who caused harm will be held accountable.”

District Attorney George Gascón announced that his office has charged a Texas woman with six counts of murder for a deadly multi-car crash in Windsor Hills.

“Today, we begin the process of holding accountable the person responsible for the deaths of six people, including a pregnant woman, and their families,” District Attorney Gascón said. “This is a case that will always be remembered for the senseless loss of so many innocent lives as they simply went about their daily routines. I want to thank our prosecutors and the investigating officers at the California Highway Patrol for their work on this case.

While the wreckage of this fiery crash at this intersection was removed and traffic eventually resumed, there is catastrophic damage to the families and friends of those killed and injured. It is not only a tremendous loss to the families but our entire community who learned of this incredible tragedy or have watched the now viral video of the collision. I’m sure this is a time of great sorrow and grieving for the families and friends of those who will be forever affected by what has transpired.”

District Attorney George Gascón and Robin Toma, executive director of the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, announced a series of community-based forums to inform a joint-action plan against hate in Los Angeles County.

“We are fortunate to live in one of the most diverse counties in America, but the strength of our diversity also makes us vulnerable to hate-based threats and violence. The recent rise in hate incidents across our county is unacceptable,” District Attorney Gascón said. “We must ensure the safety of all people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender identity or sexual orientation. To address the recent rise in hate crimes and incidents, my office will lead a series of community-based forums to create a thoughtful and inclusive plan of action to resist hate in Los Angeles County.”
