Statement by District Attorney Ramos condemning prosecutor’s discriminatory comments posted online
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – On June 28, 2018, we received information regarding negative comments posted online by one of our prosecutors. At that time, we took immediate steps to initiate a personnel investigation.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office does not condone hate, discrimination or incitement of violence. Our community and the entire criminal justice system depends on having fair, ethical, and unbiased prosecutors.
Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem will be on administrative leave pending the conclusion of the formal investigation which could result in disciplinary action leading up to termination.
No further comment or information will be released at this time.
