The California District Attorneys Association (CDAA) has named Orange County's Ebrahim Baytieh as the state's "Outstanding Prosecutor of the Year."

The honor is not surprising.

During his career, Baytieh--a tireless Senior Deputy District Attorney with a photographic memory and a gentlemanly courtroom demeanor--has put a whopping 43 killers in prison, including five who now sit on San Quentin State Prison's notorious Death Row.

"This award is a tremendous acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication that Ebrahim puts into every case," District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said in a prepared press statement. "He is passionate about protecting the rights of victims and tireless in his fight for justice . . . [The honor] is well deserved."

Last year, Baytieh--who has prosecuted every type of homicide and is largely responsible for sending an entire generation of Little Saigon gangsters and white supremacist hoodlums with Public Enemy Number One Death Squad to prison--won convictions against nine Orange County Jail inmates who savagely murdered a fellow inmate, John Derek Chamberlain, in 2006.

He is scheduled to receive the award at the organization's June conference in Napa.

Honestly, I don't really have any respect for him after the Chamberlain case.  Sorry.

Ahhh, yes. It's easy to assert negative things about Baytieh, but I've spent more than 16 years covering his cases and know better than most this guy deserves double what we pay him...

You really agreed with his prosecuting the Chamberlain case as first degree premeditated  murder for the inmates?  You really felt that was a fair charge?

He so good that people don't even have to be guilty to be convicted!
