Del Norte County appoints interim D.A. and she’s a familiar face

CRESCENT CITY  – Del Norte County officially has a new district attorney even if it is on an interim basis for the time being. Katherine Micks was appointed to replace Dale Trigg who cited salary issues as a reason for his departure this past June.

Micks will serve in the position until a new district attorney is elected in 2018 and takes over in January of 2019. She’s been in the DA’S office since 2005 and this is actually her second stint as interim district attorney. She served a year and a half following Jon Alexander’s disbarment in April of 2013.
