Whenever the law changes, prosecutors and law enforcement officials turn to Devallis Rutledge to tell them what they need to know. Rutledge, an attorney and former police officer, serves as special counsel to District Attorney Jackie Lacey.
He reviews legislation, ballot measures and court decisions and explains their real-life impact to those in the trenches. He was one of the first people in California to offer help to law enforcement officials as they implemented Proposition 47, which, among other changes, reclassified certain theft and drug possession offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. The measure was approved by voters on Nov. He also created a seven-minute video that explained to law enforcement personnel what they needed to know about the change in the law.
His popular training memos, called a "One-Minute Brief," are emailed to more than 3, people and agencies around the state. They explore ongoing legal issues and how new court rulings affect criminal cases. He covers issues on search warrants and access to cell-phone tower data.
Last month, he spelled out why entering an off-limits room in a business and stealing property — even during business hours — is burglary and not shoplifting. He has published nearly One-Minute Briefs since Rutledge also has authored 11 instructional books on topics such as criminal evidence, search and seizure law and interrogation law and tactics.
He updates those books regularly. Powered by G o o g l e Translate. County Home L. County LA County Helps. Skip to main content.
