No matter what goes wrong in the Luzerne County District Attorney's office the head of that department won't take responsibility. The latest screwup is over issuing of a warrant for a person who recently murdered someone. Mr. Lupas blames it on Public Defenders Office for the delay but the PD says he made no such request. Is this guy paperwork challenged? The Hugo escape charges, the Holdren case and many others just show a lack of attention to detail. His opponent in the upcoming election for Judge is asking the Attorney General for an investigation.
Marsilio Campaign Calls for the Attorney’s General Office to Investigate District Attorney David Lupas
When David Lupas lost the Hugo Selenski murder trial he blamed the Judge.. He made up allegations that had no factual basis in order to have the Judge remove himself from the second Selenski Trial.
When Mr. Lupas had a case dismissed because it was not brought to trial on time he blamed an Assistant District Attorney and said it was the Assistant’s fault.
When the newspapers ran a story on all the cases that have been dismissed because they weren’t brought to trial on time, Mr. Lupas blamed the Police.
Now a man, Lewis Jones, has been murdered because Mr. Lupas ignored a Court Order made on March 5th to issue a Warrant for the arrest of the man who killed Mr. Jones. This Court Order was made 8 days before Mr. Jones was killed. Mr Lupas has blamed the Public Defender’s Office and said he ignored the Judge’s Order because they asked him not to issue the Warrant.
Where does it end? When is Mr. Lupas responsible for something?
Mr. Lupas is telling the voters he intentionally ignored a Court Order because he was asked to. What right does Mr. Lupas have to ignore a Court Order because someone allegedly asked him to?
The Attorney General’s Office should be called in to conduct an investigation of Mr. Lupas and the District Attorney’s Office and make an independent determination of the culpability of Mr. Lupas for the death of Lewis Jones. The Attorney General’s Office should decide if criminal charges are warranted against Mr. Lupas in the death of Lewis Jones. No one, not even the District Attorney, is above the Law.
