L.A.'s top prosecutor sets up Hollywood sex-scandal task force

District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement Thursday, “I have established a task force of specially trained deputy district attorneys who are ready to evaluate these cases if any are referred to my office for criminal prosecution.

“I have assigned the group of veteran sex-crimes prosecutors to work together to ensure a uniformed approach to the legal review and possible prosecution of any case that meets both the legal and factual standards for criminal prosecution.”
