(Sheriff) Carona and wife answer questions (Orange County, CA)
The Orange County Register ^ | October 30, 2007 | LARRY WELBORN

Sheriff Mike Carona ... gave five-minute interviews to two dozen print, radio and television reporters today.


Here are their statements and the answers to the questions the attorneys allowed:

Mike Carona: Last week, my department and I spent long hours working with our colleagues in law enforcement and the fire service, battling the fires that devastated Orange County. Today, I find myself in a firestorm of a different type.

This is not a complex matter. Simply put, I have NEVER misused the office of the sheriff of Orange County for personal gain. Any fair review of the evidence can only lead to that conclusion. And I am offended that similar accusations have been made about my wife, which are also patently false.

I look forward to my day in court. I have retained excellent counsel to assist me in demonstrating the falsity of the accusations and I will rely on their counsel and expertise in doing so.

For nine years, I have been privileged to lead the Orange County Sheriff's Department, considered to be on of the finest law enforcement agencies in the country. I intend to continue to lead the department during this process, and will continue to work hard for all the residents of this county. I am confident that with the full support of my staff, an excellent organizational structure, and my dedication and work ethic that there will be no drop off in the level of service of the Orange County Sheriff's Department to the community as this case moves forward.

I have proudly served in law enforcement for over thirty years. I respect and believe in our system of justice. That is why I am fully confident that justice will be done here, and I will be completely vindicated."

If the Sheriff wants to be straightforward, he should answer any and all questions the Orange County media asks him, not just questions that are filtered through his attorneys.
