Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is getting slammed for scrapping his office’s “Lifer Unit,” with critics — including prosecutors from his own office — accusing the progressive prosecutor of turning his back on victims and their families. The critical department — which alerted victims to their assailants’ parole hearings — is set to be disbanded by the end of the year and its prosecutors reassigned because the office is already “greatly understaffed,” Gascón said last week. “It’s beyond disgusting,” said Deputy District Attorney John Lewin, who prosecutes high-profile murder trials.
