Meet Robin Sax

My name is Robin Sax. I'm a former prosecutor. I spent 14 years in both the LA and Riverside County District Attorney’s Office where I prosecuted crimes against children, domestic violence, stalking and a whole bunch of other kinds of crimes. I found that everyday when I went to court, I would often argue my cases in empty courtrooms when no one was there but the parties, the judges and lawyers but the people who really needed to be here about these cases were you – the people out there in public. I left the DA’s office and decided that I was going to comment on other people’s cases and in 30 seconds sound bytes, I could change and advocate for children much more effectively through the media. Now, I'm a legal commentator for Fox Los Angeles. I've written a bunch of books. I blog and I'm able to speak my mind without having to prep my own cases. I'm also a mom of three. I have two stepsons and one daughter who came out of my loins. In my free time, I devour news. I love being connected with what’s going on in the world, being connected with people and advocating for change.
