David Walgren '95, Michael Jackson Trial Prosecutor, Profiled in Bee
David Walgren '95, a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney who is serving as prosecutor in the involuntary manslaughter trial of the doctor charged in connection with the death of pop star Michael Jackson, was profiled in the Sacramento Bee. The trial has drawn extensive coverage from media, with many accounts mentioning Walgren and including favorable descriptions of the prosecution's case.
Walgren is experienced in handling high-profile cases: he wrote the argument against Oscar-winning fugitive Roman Polanski's effort to seek dismissal of the 1977 child-sex case pending against him and successfully prosecuted a photographer who was convicted of forgery, attempted grand theft, and perjury for a scheme to sell revealing pictures of Cameron Diaz back to the actress for millions of dollars.
The Bee article quotes Professor Gabriel "Jack" Chin, who has used the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial in class discussions.
