Michael Cabral
Michael J. Cabral has been a prosecutor for over 24 years. He started in the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office in 1986 and helped to establish that office's Arson Unit. He led the Los Angles County Arson Task Force which was responsible for the investigation and prosecution of Glendale Arson Investigator Jon L. Orr for the 1984 Ole's Home Center arson homicide fire. He has served as a Chief Deputy District Attorney with the Riverside County District Attorney's Office and is currently the Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney with the Yolo County District Attorney's Office.

But one of Michael Cabral's most satisfying convictions involved a crime of the white-collar variety - that of a 78-year-old Woodland woman swindled of more than $750,000 by the bookkeeper she'd entrusted to handle her affairs.
By the end of the case, Cabral had recovered more than half of the elderly woman's lost savings and sent the crooked accountant to state prison for 16 months.
After just over four years as an assistant chief deputy district attorney in Yolo County, Cabral, 55, has accepted a chief deputy DA's job with the Riverside County District Attorney's Office, where he'd worked for several years before moving up north.
The decision, he said, was a bittersweet one.
"I love the people here," Cabral said in a recent interview, during a break in tying up loose ends at his downtown Woodland office.
Cabral said the move will bring him and his wife Margie, a substitute teacher, closer to two of their four grown children.
He prosecuted several high-profile cases during his Yolo County tenure, most notably the Daniel Marsh double-homicide trial, as well as a 2006 cold-case murder solved through DNA evidence and the U.S. Bank protesters from UC Davis.
But Cabral's also hailed for his work behind the scenes, such as strengthening the Yolo DA's fraud division and launching a conviction integrity unit in which attorneys review cases for possible exculpatory evidence. He also played a significant role in the review of students' and officers' actions during the infamous Nov. 18, 2011, pepper-spraying incident at UC Davis.
For those and other efforts, Cabral earned his office's Attorney of the Year award last month.
"I was truly honored. It's probably one of the biggest honors I've gotten as a prosecutor," he said.
Although Cabral knew from a young age he wanted to be a lawyer, he never saw himself becoming a prosecutor.
But he was offered a job with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office right after he graduated from Southwestern Law School, and he spent 20 years there before becoming a prosecutor in Riverside County.
That's why I continue to do trial work," Cabral said.
I enjoy the trial work, but I've also learned how much of a toll it really takes on you," said Cabral, who during the Marsh trial arrived at work well before dawn and left long after the sun went down.

In 28 years as a prosecutor, "never have I seen such a heinous and reprehensible act, and never have I seen a defendant with such an evil soul," said Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral, the case's lead prosecutor.
"She lived her life loving people, always willing to lend a hand, a shoulder or an ear," Victoria Hurd, Maupin's eldest daughter, said in a statement that brought even Cabral and fellow prosecutor Amanda Zambor to tears.
