Disorder in the court: Defense attorney injured after courthouse argument with DA investigator

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 10, 2016

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a courthouse fight that broke out Wednesday between a District Attorney’s investigator and a defense attorney who triumphed over prosecutors in a recent case involving jailhouse informants.

The investigator and attorney got into an argument that turned physical around 10 a.m. in a hallway outside a 10th floor courtroom, Lt. Mark Stichter said. He didn’t know what prompted the argument.

But defense attorney James Crawford said he was attacked by a DA investigator he didn’t recognize.

“My back was to him and the next thing I know I find my head getting slammed into a bench.” Crawford said. “He then proceeded to punch me and pin me into the bench.”
