CCBA is pleased to announce its August MCLE Webinar!
“Changes in Sex Case Laws”
presented by Laura Arnold
Laura Arnold has dedicated the past quarter-century of her life to battling
unjust, irrational, and unconstitutional laws and government actions.
She started as a deputy public defender with San Diego County in 1995.
In 2013, she moved to Riverside County and assumed leadership of the Public
Defender’s Writs & Appeals Unit. In February, 2019, Laura was
appointed Chief Public Defender for Stanislaus County. She resigned from
that position last month and once again assumes the title of "Deputy
Public Defender" (handling PC 1170.95 proceedings for San Diego County).
She is the President of the California Public Defender’s Association
and, since 2016, has been serving, by appointment of the Chief Justice
of the California Supreme Court, as one of two criminal defense attorneys
on the Criminal Law Advisory Committee to the California Judicial Council.
Her two teenaged daughters are aptly named “Brady” and “Miranda”.
Since 2006, Laura has presented statewide regarding postconviction consequences
of sex crimes convictions. Laura enjoys nothing more than helping good
lawyers to great work for their clients and is excited to be presenting
to the CCBA.
