Former Lassen County DA Stacey Montgomery to Address Issues of Crime in Rural California Areas
We are very pleased to have Stacey Montgomery as our guest speaker at NCRWF’s October meeting. Stacey will speak on “Catch and Release - the Face of Crime in California.”
In 2018, then-Lassen County District Attorney Montgomery accompanied Congressman Doug LaMalfa to a California Sanctuary State Roundtable organized by President Donald Trump. The meeting attendees included mayor, sheriffs, and leaders from thoughout our state.
Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen, Deputy ICE Director, Tom Homan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy were among the attendees.
The President’s comments focused on his commitment to building the Southern border wall, “catch and release” and California’s activities to nullify federal law thus endangering the lives of its own citizens.
Born and raised in California, Stacey has been an attorney for 25 years. Entering the practice of law when the Three Strikes initiative was introduced, she quickly developed a passion for criminal prosecution. Initially Stacey was appointed District Attorney for Lassen County and then ran and was elected, serving in total from June of 2014 through January of 2019. She firmly believes that the laws passed within California have created an especially dangerous environment for citizens located in rural communities. She is outspoken in pointing to issues of the legalization of marijuana, challenges by the ACLU to upholding the rights of citizens which she was charged to protect, and “catch and release” immigration policies as seriously hindering the effectiveness of ICE agents in doing their work. During her tenure as DA, she was on the forefront on the growth of illegal Mexican cartels, marijuana grow operations on public lands and opposition to the far-reaching effect of the sanctuary state and cities movement.
Since her participation in the Washington roundtable, Stacey has become a nationally recognized speaker on these issues. Since leaving office she has gone into private practice in Susanville, where she works in the areas of criminal defense, family law and estates.
Stacey continues to fight for California as a delegate with the CAGOP, through speaking engagements with conservative groups, talk radio and social media. Stacey is a firm believer in her Christian faith, strong advocate for our Constitution, and staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment.
