San Francisco DA doesn’t need to recuse himself in mayor’s brother case, judge says

0

A San Francisco judge ruled Monday that the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office did not have to recuse itself from a case involving Mayor London Breed’s brother.

Breed’s brother, Napoleon Brown, has served more than half of a 44-year sentence for a 2000 conviction for manslaughter, armed robbery and carjacking. Brown is seeking to reduce his sentence.

His attorney, Marc Zilversmit, had sought to remove District Attorney Brooke Jenkins from the case, saying otherwise it would be clouded by politics, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Breed nominated Jenkins for district attorney before Jenkins was elected to the position in November.

Zilversmit had asked the state attorney general’s office to take over the case, but San Francisco Superior Court Judge Brendan Conroy denied that request.

In 2000, Brown and another man robbed a restaurant in San Francisco and fled over the Golden Gate Bridge. His then-girlfriend, who was driving the getaway car, was pushed or fell from the vehicle and fatally struck by a drunk driver.

Zilversmit pleaded for a reduced prison sentence based on a new state law. The district attorney’s office opposed his conviction.

Zilversmit told the newspaper his office was considering his options.

A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office said a strict firewall “was previously put in place to isolate District Attorney Brooke Jenkins from this case will remain in place.”

“There will still be no communication with her about the proceedings. Additionally, she will not have access to the physical file and electronic files,” the spokesperson said.

Brown will appear in court on February 14 for the next stage of his sentencing.
