DA Picks Special Prosecutor

District Attorney Kari Brandenburg told reporters Thursday that noted civil rights attorney Randi McGinn has agreed to be special prosecutor in the case against two law enforcement officers charged with the murder of a homeless man. Detective Keith Sandy and officer Dominique Perez were charged with murder in the March 16, 2014, shooting of James Boyd in the Sandia foothills in a criminal information filed by the District Attorney’s office. It is McGinn’s first time as a special prosecutor, though she was an assistant district attorney in violent crimes and tried multiple murder cases under the late District Attorney Steve Schiff early in her career.
