San Francisco’s interim District Attorney Brooke Jenkin is raising eyebrows in her first week on the job. As reported by the S.F. Chronicle, Jenkin, the former assistant district attorney, who was sworn in last Friday by Mayor London Breed, is temporarily filling the void left by the June recall of Chesa Boudin. In her first week, Jenkin has ordered a review of dozens of drug-related cases, in which the D.A.’s office extended plea offers, and may revoke some of those offers that are still pending. Jenkin left the D.A.’s office last year due to frustrations over Boudin’s policies and quickly became a leading voice in the recall campaign. Seeing Boudin as being too lenient, Jenkin has stated that many of Boudin’s policies needed to be rolled back, including limitations on the use of gang enhancements and charges under California’s “three strikes” law.
