District Attorney adds to her ranks

EUREKA - Recently elected Humboldt County District Attorney Maggie Fleming is bolstering her staff.

Three new attorneys have been hired. Joining the ranks of assistant DA’s will be Trenton Timm of Scotia, Moksha Chattopadhya of San Jose and Whitney Barnes of Mereno Valley. All will initially handle misdemeanor cases. Former HSU Police Chief Lynne Soderberg also joined the staff as an investigator and will focus on domestic violence cases.

District Attorney Fleming is seeking to fill additional existing positions including those frozen by the county due to “Measure Z” funding.
