The Skagit County Public Defender’s office said June Patti lacked credibility

Au­thor­it­ies in Sk­agit County, Wash., con­sidered June Patti so un­re­li­able after she moved to Wash­ing­ton State in the 1990s that the pub­lic de­fend­er’s of­fice would file what they re­ferred to as “the June Patti brief” whenev­er Patti’s name was men­tioned in a case. The brief in­cluded in­cid­ents in which Patti had been found to have broken the law or lacked cred­ib­il­ity.
