IN THE COMMUNITY: Deputy District Attorney Cesar Ponce was invited to speak at Driffill School’s 2023 Career Day.

Cesar spoke to 6th grade students about his journey becoming an attorney and what he does as a Deputy DA.

The students were very eager to ask questions and many shared that Cesar was the only Latino attorney they had ever met.

"It was a rewarding experience and I hope some of these students were motivated to continue with their education and hopefully become attorneys one day," Ponce said.

What a beautiful Friday afternoon. Nice to have a day without a cloud in the sky.

We hope everyone has a safe weekend! ☀️

District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced today that the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office has issued a cease and desist demand to the Ojai Unified School District (OUSD).

The cease and desist demand alleges that the OUSD Board of Education violated the Brown Act.

“California law requires the vast majority of school district decision-making to be conducted in open and public meetings,” said District Attorney Erik Nasarenko. “Ojai Unified’s recent actions were a significant departure from that requirement and necessitate immediate corrective action.”
