John Paul Brennan

Current job: Criminal defense attorney, private practice
Age: 46
Residence: West Sacramento
Education: Bachelor’s degree, St. Mary’s College, 1990; juris doctor, Ohio Northern Law School, 1993
Experience: Assistant district attorney, city/county of San Francisco, 1994-95; assistant district attorney, Kings County, 1995-2000; deputy district attorney, Sacramento County, 2000-05; private criminal defense practice, 2005-present

Why running: “Seven out of Yolo County’s 10 current judges have no criminal law background. A majority of the cases handled in this county, in every county throughout the state, are criminal law. Yolo County needs somebody with that experience. I would bring a great judicial temperament to the bench. I would be tough, but I would also be fair.”

Judicial philosophy: “My philosophy would be to do the right thing. I’ve spent my career doing this — making sure people have their day in court — and I have that ability, I have the experience to evaluate and weigh a case and make the ruling that the law requires. It’s easy to do the popular thing. It’s hard to do the right thing.”

Additional skills/experience: Has handled more than 3,000 criminal law cases as a deputy district attorney and 1,000 cases as a defense attorney; has participated in more than 100 jury trials over the past 20 years.

Endorsements (partial list): Sacramento Superior Court Judges Michael Bowman, Greta Curtis Fall, Maryanne Gilliard, Patrick Marlette, Kevin McCormick, Gary Mullen, Delbert W. Oros, Joseph Orr, Michael Sweet (former Yolo Superior Court judge); Mendocino County District Attorney C. David Eyster, retired West Sacramento Fire Chief Fred Postel

Family: wife Heidi Brennan, a Sacramento County deputy district attorney; five children, ages 3 to 17
