Advocating state laws, regulations and policies that support the rights of victims of violent crime, and holding accountable officials entrusted with ensuring public safety, the CVAA and CLO said Hoffman’s philosophies, experience and widespread support from the legal and law enforcement communities stood out.
“Victims of violent crime deserve consistent, fair and equitable treatment from the state legislature and in our courts,” said Christine Ward, CVAA executive director and president of the CLO. “Joseph Hoffman’s professional accomplishments and resounding support from respected judges, prosecutors and peace officers reaffirm our belief that he is the candidate who is best suited to respect and embrace victims’ rights.”
Hoffman is endorsed by El Dorado County Superior Court Judges Douglas Phimister and Daniel Proud, and is the only candidate backed by local prosecutors and deputy sheriffs.
“As a prosecutor, I’ve found that having a judge in the courtroom who can make the right call is crucial to the outcome of a criminal prosecution,” said Michael Pizzuti, El Dorado County District Deputy Attorney. “Simply put, a judge can make or break a case. Joe Hoffman strikes me as the candidate who possesses the type of sound judgment that is so important for the job; and that is why I am supporting him.”
