New Public Defender Named


Raimundo Montes De Oca, who since October 2010 has served as the county’s interim public defender after Greg Paraskou retired, has been appointed to the position permanently. Montes De Oca, a native of Carpinteria, has decades of experience not only as an attorney but also in this county. He attended UCSB as an undergrad, and after a stint in Arizona, came back to work for the county in 1979.
