Multnomah County DA Releases Videos

(Portland, OR) -- Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has started producing a series of videos that explain how the DA's office works. Critics have called Schmidt soft on crime because of rising crime rates and the way he dealt with demonstrators causing damage downtown in 2020. The first video explains how they handle property crimes. They need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that a defendant is guilty. Of the cases investigated by police, they prosecute 76 percent of vehicle theft cases, 58 percent of thefts, 81 percent of burglaries, and 70 percent of vandalisms. A new video will be released each month.
