Like big law firms, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has instructed those to whom it had just extended offers a week or two ago that they will be starting in June. This is starting to sound as if the D.A.'s Office may not in fact be able to follow through with hiring these individuals; they seem to be playing for time to get funds to honor the offers.
At least this is not Sacramento, where not only have recently hired deputies been laid off, but so have those hired a year before them. In a mirror image of Los Angeles, Sacramento's deputies have been told their positions will disappear in June.
