Statement from DA Lohra Miller

[Follow-up] Salt Lake County District Attorney Lohra Miller did not respond to City Weekly’s requests for comment for a story that ran in the 3/20 paper, but issued the following statement to several other media outlets:

"I am very proud and honored to be elected by the people of Salt Lake County to be their District Attorney. My staff and I have made great progress in reorganizing and reforming this office, including our efforts in prosecuting domestic violence and alcohol-related offenses.

"Unfortunately, public officials are sometimes forced to face accusations that may be used to distort and misrepresent their lives. Those accusations, whether initiated for personal or political motives and regardless of the manner in which they are made, distract us all from continuing our important work. I will not let that happen. I will continue to ensure that criminals in our community are aggressively prosecuted."

  3. Good, Lohra will be gone soon. Now we just need to rid our lives of the useless Holly Mullen and all will be right with the universe. Holly, please go away!

  4. I wonder if she forgot that giving minors alcohol is against the law. I wonder what we should do with criminals like that?

  5. Too bad she didn't change just one word.

    "I will continue to ensure that criminals in our community are selectively prosecuted."

  6. Just another politician/lawyer in a long list who believes the law does not apply to them. The only thing that separates her from the current president is that she didn't use the phrase "evil-doers" as part of her retort.
