District attorney drops support of Clint Parish

...
The most prominent example is a campaign mailer sent to voters last weekend by judicial candidate Clint Parish, a deputy district attorney who is running for the Yolo Superior Court Department 15 judgeship held by Dan Maguire.
...
The mailers caused Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto to drop his endorsement of Parish.
...
And, early Friday, Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig dropped his support as well, sending out a statement that read: "Having considered all the facts and circumstances surrounding judicial candidate Clint Parish's attack mail piece, including recent explanations from his campaign, I have decided to retract
...
In the judicial race, Parish said Thursday he has also faced negative campaigning.
...
Parish didn't elaborate on the content of the emails but he "took offense at some of the things they said."
...
On Thursday, Parish took responsibility for a statement in the mailer referring to Maguire being involved in "a sordid case of corporate fraud that involved payment of bribes to Russia. This was referring to a breach of contract case that a Denver firm Maguire previously worked for in Denver had been a defendant.
"The Russian bribes thing was, how I should say, the connection I thought was there simply wasn't there," Parish said.
...
"The statements in my mailers for the most part, we stand by them," Parish said.
...
Even though Maguire began working in Yolo Superior Court in December, Parish said it was the governor's legal team that made that decision.
...
I am judged by my work at the District Attorney's office," Parish said.

Reversing an earlier ruling, California's State Bar Court has called for a former Yolo County prosecutor to face discipline for making false allegations against his opponent during his ill-fated 2012 judicial campaign.
In an opinion filed Thursday, a three-judge review panel ordered the public reproval of Clint Parish, 43, for inaccurate campaign-mailer claims that Yolo Superior Court Judge Dan Maguire had engaged in bribery, corporate fraud and other misdeeds prior to his appointment to the bench.
...
"Therefore, we order Parish publicly reproved with the condition that he successfully complete the State Bar's Ethics School."
...
The public reproval - a reprimand that is a matter of public record but carries no suspension - becomes effective Feb. 26, though Parish may appeal the order before the California Supreme Court. He declined to comment when reached by email Tuesday.
Should he decline to pursue an appeal, Parish has one year to submit proof of the Ethics School completion and passage of an exam administered at the end of the session, according to the State Bar Court's 15-page order.
The decision comes 16 months after a State Bar Court hearing judge, Pat McElroy, ruled that Parish should be admonished rather than disciplined for his misconduct, saying it that, while Parish had a responsibility to vet the allegations, "the court does not believe that respondent knew or believed they were false when he made them."
...
Parish claimed political naivete during the proceedings, blaming his campaign consultant, Aaron Park, for the content of the mailers - one of which alleged that Maguire was involved in a "sordid case of corporate fraud that involved payment of bribes in Russia" while working for a Denver law firm.
...
Although Parish fired Park and acknowledged the inaccuracies, the damage was done, costing Parish nearly all his major endorsements in the race, including that of his boss, District Attorney Jeff Reisig, and Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto.

Parish later resigned from the Yolo County District Attorney's Office and now has a criminal defense practice in Tuolumne County. He had no prior disciplinary record.
"We are cognizant that Parish has already paid a heavy professional price for the campaign mailer, and that his misconduct was neither malicious nor intentional," Honn wrote in Thursday's ruling.

In an email obtained by The Bee, Prieto wrote "I have advised Parish to remove me from his list of endorsers."
...
Parish, running for Yolo Superior Court judge against incumbent Judge Dan Maguire, called Prieto's reversal "unfortunate" and suggested the sheriff withdrew his endorsement under pressure from the Yolo bench.
...
Prieto's defection is a potentially damaging blow for Parish, a criminal prosecutor in the Yolo County District Attorney's Office.
Parish has portrayed himself as the law-and-order candidate in the race for the bench, receiving endorsements from victims groups, Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig and the police officer associations of West Sacramento, Woodland and Winters.
...
"He was working for the team that made those decisions," Parish said Tuesday.
...
Parish has made Maguire's tenure under Schwarzenegger and Maguire's judicial appointment by the former governor a central part of his campaign, calling the judge an inexperienced "product of political privilege."
...
Parish renewed the commutation link after his endorsement by Santos' parents Friday.
On Monday, Judge Maguire blasted Parish, saying Parish "repeatedly implied that I was involved in Governor Schwarzenegger's decision to commute part of the sentence imposed on Esteban Nez.

Former Yolo County prosecutor Clint Parish should be admonished - but not disciplined - for making false allegations in campaign mailers during his 2012 judicial campaign, a State Bar Court judge concluded in a ruling announced Friday.

...
Reached by phone Friday, Parish said he would not comment until that review is complete.
...
Parish, 42, had been accused of willfully violating the rules of professional conduct while seeking judicial office and faced disbarment as a maximum punishment.
...
According to the written ruling, the events leading to the controversy began several months before the election, when the director of communications for Parish's campaign, Kirby Wells, advised Parish to replace his then-campaign consultant with Aaron Park, "who has been described as 'true believer' and a 'flame thrower' with a right-wing blog."
...
In his defense, Parish described himself as a political "neophyte" who relied upon the advice of his campaign consultants as the mailers were being prepared. Parish later fired Park and suspended his campaign activities as his key endorsers - including Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto and District Attorney Jeff Reisig, Parish's boss - withdrew their support.
...
Although the ads' allegations ranged from exaggerated to reckless, and though Parish had a responsibility to determine their accuracy, "the court does not believe that respondent knew or believed they were false when he made them," McElroy wrote.
