Prosecutor to Challenge Judge Thomas Anderson

Vowing to restore public confidence in one Nevada County courtroom, local attorney George Smyrnos has announced his candidacy for the Nevada County Superior Court seat currently help by Judge Thomas Anderson.

“I’m running because there’s a concern in the community about sentences, particularly in the child molestation cases. That concerns me as much as it does anyone else.  I think there’s a real need to look at really the basis for his decisions to oppose these sentences.”

Smyrnos has been a Nevada County resident since 1987, George and his wife Elena, a nurse, have 2 children. Smyrnos earned his undergraduate degree at California State University, San Jose, and his law degree from San Francisco law School.
