SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Sacramento District Attorney announced she’s cutting lawyers from her office.

District Attorney Jan Scully says she’s been forced to cut 64 positions to help cut her office’s nearly $7 million deficit.

Of those jobs lost, 31 of them attorneys as well as several other key support staff.

“Some criminals will not be prosecuted for committing crimes not because they are not guilty, but because prosecution of criminals is not a county priority,” said D.A. Jan Scully.

Scully says prosecutors will now  focus more on violent crimes.
