The President of the California District Attorneys Association, Sutter County District Attorney Carl Adams, is in hot water for involving himself in an investigation into an arson at the home of a former prostitute he had an an affair with.
Fire burned Sarah Garibay’s home recently, and within a day of the blaze the married D.A. Carl Adams was on scene and in contact with investigators trying to help Ms. Garibay. The D.A. has now admitted an “inappropriate” relationship with the woman and has asked the media to leave the matter alone, saying it’s a personal matter involving only his wife and his pastor.
It’s amazing to me how public officials hold common folks to one standard of conduct, but then act as if they are above the law.
