California State Bar attorneys filed "disciplinary charges" Feb. 12 against Clint Parish, then working as a Tuolumne County deputy district attorney.
A state judge admonished Parish in September over allegations that he made false claims in 2012 about himself and an opponent while running for the Yolo County judgeship. No further disciplinary action was imposed.
Parish was hired as a Tuolumne County deputy district attorney in fall of 2012, shortly after losing in the Yolo County election. He is no longer with the Tuolumne County District Attorney's Office, however, after failing to pass his one-year probationary period.
In November, Tuolumne County District Attorney Mike Knowles declined to specify why Parish failed the process.
...
Prior to the State Bar Court's decision, Knowles defended his decision to hire Parish.
...

Deputy District Attorney Clint Parish appeared in State Bar court the past two days on "disciplinary charges" against him for an event in 2012, before he worked in Tuolumne County.
State Bar attorneys allege Parish used false and deceptive campaign materials to embellish his support and tar his rival, Judge Dan Maguire, for a judge seat in Yolo County in May 2012.
...
A State Bar spokeswoman said Parish could, if found guilty, face disciplinary actions up to disbarment. However, the prosecutors have offered a punishment of a public reproval, or reprimand, and ethics classes, including passage of the Multi-State Professional Examination, according to his pre-trial statement.
Parish has sought dismissal of the charges, but had previously indicated a willingness to accept a "truly private reproval" with conditions including, but not limited to, additional ethics classes.
Parish cited these defenses in his pre-trial statement:
...
Parish took reasonable measures to correct any violation.
His pre-trial statement showed he would call seven witnesses that have worked with him - some on the campaign in question, including his wife.
State Bar attorneys allege Parish in May 2012 falsely accused Maguire of being involved in a "sordid case of corporate fraud that involved payments of bribes in Russia" while in private practice in Denver.
...
Parish also falsely attacked Maguire's record as it related to his service as a deputy legal affairs secretary for Gov.
...
In campaign materials, Parish claimed Maguire helped craft the governor's 2011 decision to reduce the manslaughter sentence of Estaban Nunez, the son of Schwarzenegger ally and former Democratic Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez.
...
Around the same time, Parish posted on his campaign Website a false claim that he'd been endorsed by the City of Winters Police Department, according to the State Bar filing.
Tuolumne County District Attorney Mike Knowles said his office was aware of the controversy surrounding the election, and was notified by Parish himself.
...
Knowles said Parish is already doing a respectable job for the office and stood by his decision to hire him, noting the complaints are not about his direct practice of law.
...
Parish joined the Tuolumne County DA's Office last fall as a deputy district attorney.
He formerly worked as a deputy prosecutor for the Yolo County District Attorney's Office.
Yolo County representatives declined to comment beyond confirming he'd worked for the county for a decade and left on Nov. 16, 2012.
State Bar records show Parish, a graduate of University of the Pacific's McGeorge School of Law, was licensed to practice in California in 2000. He has no prior disciplinary record.
The Yolo County DA's Office and County Counsel declined to comment on Parish's service or the nature of his departure. Online records, however, show he received an "Individual Leadership Award" in 2006 for creating a liaison program with local law enforcement agencies.
Parish couldn't be reached for comment.

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.

Former Yolo County prosecutor ...

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.
