Who is Sean Lafferty?

Sean Lafferty has served the community for 17 years, in his own words, “fighting for justice for those who’ve been harmed. I’ve convicted murderers, rapists, child molesters, and gang members, and these efforts have earned the respect of my colleagues in that I was twice named “Felony Prosecutor of the Year.” I rose to the top of the District Attorney’s office, becoming a senior manager in Riverside, Indio, and Temecula, and currently oversee 250 employees, including 90 prosecutors.” Said Lafferty, on his campaign web site.

A husband, father, and longtime resident of Riverside County, Lafferty cares about protecting the community. “This is where we raise our families.  More than any award, I am proud that my work has made a difference in the lives of real people.” Lafferty stated. “As judge, I will ensure justice prevails: in my courtroom people will be treated with dignity and respect. Voters can trust that I will follow the Constitution and the rule of law with integrity and impartiality.”

Lafferty has gained the support of Law Enforcement, retired DA Grover Trask, retiring Judge Albert Wojcik (endorsing me to succeed him), as well as numerous judges, prosecutors, attorneys, and community leaders throughout Riverside County.
