The welfare of our children in Los Angeles County is of paramount concern. Too many children die from abuse while under the jurisdiction of our dependency courts. In Los Angeles County, a neglected or abused child dies every 3 months. Many of these children were under the jurisdiction of the dependency court system, or had contact with the Department of Children and Family Services (“DCFS”). That is why Bobby Grace is running for District Attorney for Los Angeles in 2012.
