The Orange County District Attorney's office made national news yet again last week in its ever-growing snitch scandal — except in a far more embarrassing light than ever before. On Wednesday, there was an altercation between an OC DA investigator and defense attorney James Crawford, who recently got a new trial for client as part of the fallout over the snitch scandal. The resulting fight left Crawford bloodied, and photos of his black eye went national. And while OCDA officials say a full examination will absolve their investigator of wrongdoing, it has led to further questions about the morale under DA Tony Rackauckas. Will the political fallout hurt his office even further?
