An Extension instructor in Paralegal, Richard Sachs teaches two courses, Criminal Law & Procedure and Evidence Law. He’s also a long-time prosecutor and deputy district attorney with the City of San Diego.

It’s his job to make sure convicted criminals serve sufficient prison time before parole, a process known as “lifer hearings.” Throughout his career, he has regarded law as “endlessly fascinating.”
Quotable: “The majority of our cases are for murder, first- or second-degree murder. A small minority are for kidnapping, rape or robbery. … Most of the time, we’re opposed to parole. If I was to put a number on it, it would probably be about 95 percent.”
