Re "Schubert is the best choice for Sacramento County DA (Endorsements, May 4): As an investigator of sexual assaults and homicides for 47 years, I worked closely with Anne Marie Schubert. In 2002, Schubert was the driving force behind the formation of the Cold Case Unit. This unit and Schubert were responsible for numerous cold case homicides and rapes being charged, prosecuted and convicted.
One of the many success stories was the arrest and conviction of Paul Robinson the "Second Story Rapist." Robinson's identity was unknown when the statute of limitations were about to expire. Schubert suggested the use of a "John DOE Warrant" using only the unknown suspect's DNA to identify him. Robinson's arrest on this type of warrant was the first in the nation.
It is because of cases like this that I know Schubert is the most qualified to lead the Sacramento County DA's Office.
