Charges on Jeffrey Ferguson

Authorities say they will not release any additional details on the matter due to the ongoing nature of the investigation. Ferguson, a former member of the US Navy, began her legal career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. He was promoted in the 1990s to Senior Assistant District Attorney and held positions on the Senior Narcotics Enforcement Team and the Parole Search and Seizure Enforcement Task Force. Ferguson served as president of the North Orange County Bar Association from 2012 to 2014. He was elected to the Orange County Superior Court on June 3, 2014.

During his career, he was named Prosecutor of the Year four times by the Orange County Narcotics Officers Association. One of Ferguson’s colleagues at the courthouse spoke to the Los Angeles Times on condition of anonymity and reportedly told the newspaper that no one seemed to know about the domestic problems between the judge and his wife.


“Absolutely shocked,” one of Ferguson’s colleagues told the Times early Friday. “I made them sit on my couch. I would never have thought this for a minute.” Orange County Superior Court Presiding Judge Maria Hernandez issued a statement to various media outlets wishing thoughts and prayers to the family of Sheryl Ferguson.

“Although no case has been brought before our court, where appropriate, we will take all necessary steps to ensure we fully comply with our legal and ethical obligations,” she said. “As this is a pending matter that is still under investigation, the court is unable to provide further information at this time.” Ferguson in 2017 found himself at the center of a controversy that ended with a formal reprimand from the Judicial Performance Commission after a lewd comment posted on his Facebook page.

According to the commission’s order, then-Deputy District Attorney Karen Schatzle was running for judicial office in 2016. Ferguson supported her opponent, Judge Scott Steiner, who two years earlier had been publicly censured for having sex with two women in his courthouse.


Schatzle in April 2016 posted on the North Orange County Bar Association page that Steiner “uses his office to have sex and yet many aren’t concerned, crazy politics!” Ferguson posted a response that read: “Karen Schatzle has sex with defense attorney whike [sic] shw [sic] is DA on her case and no one cares. Interesting politics.”

“The commission found that Judge Ferguson’s posting that Ms. Schatzle was currently having sex, or had had sex in the past, with a defense attorney while she was prosecuting his cases was made knowingly or with reckless disregard for the truth,” the commission wrote in its ruling. “Judge Ferguson was unable to provide factual support for her reference to “commonly known information” that Schatzle and the defense attorney appeared in the same cases during the time they were in an intimate relationship.”Read More……..
