The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday appointed David Marcus to the position of Public Defender. Marcus replaces Kevin Robinson, who retired from the county in December.
Marcus has previous experience as the Lassen County Public Defender for seven years, and 13 years of service as Deputy Public Defender with the County of San Bernardino. In addition to his Doctor of Juris Prudence, Marcus has a Master of Public Administration and brings a wealth of education along with his years of experience in Public Defense.
There were a number of highly qualified applicants for this position and the county would like to thank all who applied. The county would also like to thank former Public Defender Kevin Robinson for his years of service.
