Del Norte D.A. Faces Disbarment

DEL NORTE COUNTY, Calif. — After months of hearings before a state panel, the District Attorney for Del Norte County faces disbarment, and is now on unpaid administrative leave.

A state bar court judge found Jon Alexander in violation of several state bar rules, and recommended Alexander not be allowed to practice law and that his law license be taken away.

According to the Del Norte Triplicate Newspaper, county supervisors held an emergency meeting Friday and unanimously voted to put him on leave. Alexander has 30 days to appeal.
