The union representing Riverside County’s deputy district attorneys is fighting a ballot measure that would repeal California’s death penalty.
The Riverside County Deputy District Attorney Association has contributed $5,000 to oppose Prop. 34, according to MapLight Voter’s Edge, a nonpartisan website studying initiatives on the Nov. 6 ballot. The donation is one of the biggest to the anti-Prop 34 effort.
Prop 34 would end capital punishment for first-degree murders and convert the sentences of California’s 700-plus death row inmates to life in prison without parole.
The inmates would have to work while in prison and their wages would go to victim restitution. The measure also would set up a $100 million fund for law enforcement to solve murder and rape cases.
