The San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorneys Association announced its endorsement of Pat Withrow for San Joaquin County sheriff on Thursday.
“Pat Withrow’s plans to implement affordable modular jail beds at the county jail are exactly what we need,” said Supervising Deputy District Attorney Mary Aguirre. “The current catch-and-release system we have is not working. We will never be able to reduce crime without real consequences for criminal behavior. Pat’s plans offer the first step in bringing back accountability and rehabilitation to the criminal justice system in San Joaquin County.”
