Deputy District Attorney Steps Towards Entering Contest to Succeed Cooley


By a MetNews Staff Writer


A longtime deputy district attorney has taken the first step toward running to succeed District Attorney Steve Cooley.

John L. Breault III, 69, Friday paid his $3,017.31 filing fee and received his nominating documents to run for the county’s top prosecutor job. If he returns the papers by March 9, he will join the field of better-known prosecutors who have been raising money and seeking endorsements for the post for months.

That field includes Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, Chief Deputy District Attorney Jacquelyn Lacey, and Deputy District Attorneys Bobby Grace, Steve Ipsen, Alan Jackson, Danette Meyers and Mario Trujillo.

Breault did not return a MetNews phone call.

In other news, Trujillo announced that he had been endorsed by the Vernon Police Department.
