Dudley Refigures Office

District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced her South County administrative team on 7/2. Joining her on the fourth floor of the DA’s Office will be Ron Zonen as administrative director of the vulnerable victims unit, Hilary Dozer as the head of the gang and gang-related crimes unit, Gordon Auchincloss as lead administrator for the white collar/computer crimes unit, and Jim Kreyger, who will remain the filing deputy. She said she will not appoint a chief assistant DA, at some cost savings to the department.
