In 1972, Tony Rackauckas joined the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA). Over the next 15 years as a deputy district attorney, he conducted over 40 homicide cases and well over 100 felony trials including rape, robbery, arson, assault, burglary, fraud, narcotics, and child molestation. Tony was appointed as a Municipal Court Judge in 1990 by Governor George Deukmejian. Three years later, Governor Pete Wilson appointed Tony to the Superior Court, and he was named Presiding Judge of its Appellate Department in 1996. In June 1998, Tony ran for District Attorney and was overwhelmingly elected to the by the citizens of Orange County by 23 percentage points over his opponent, becoming the first person from outside the OCDA to be elected District Attorney in more than 40 years. Tony has since been re-elected four times, in 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014, twice running unopposed.
