Jon Alexander, Del Norte County D.A. who filed charges this week against the Mad River Biologists is the subject today of an essay in the Sacramento Bee:

“CRESCENT CITY– On his redemptive journey from meth addict to district attorney, Jon Alexander carried one constant companion: a magnet for trouble.

After a methamphetamine habit nearly destroyed him, Alexander resurrected his career and devoted himself to helping other addicts recover. In 2010, running on a platform of “death to meth,” he surprised many in Del Norte County, a remote corner of northwest California – known for illicit drugs, salmon fishing and the feared Pelican Bay State Prison – by winning election as district attorney.

Alexander has undermined his efforts to reinvent himself with numerous lapses, now resulting in an FBI probe and State Bar of California investigations on top of prior suspensions of his law license.”
