NBC Bay Area
San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is being blamed by some for the deaths of two women killed in a hit-and-run on New Year’s Eve after it was revealed that the alleged driver was a parolee released from state prison in April and arrested several times since.
On Saturday night, the DA spoke with NBC Bay Area about the case as those who knew one of the victims paid tribute to her.
“All of us did what we could, took action to intervene and prevent the criminal conduct that so tragically cost two lives on New Year’s Eve,” Boudin said. “Obviously, what we did was not enough.”
