Santa Barbara County Getting New Public Defender
Santa Barbara County is getting a new Public Defender.
Tracy Macuga will take over the top spot in the Public Defender’s office in November. She’s been involved in criminal defense law for more than two decades in public and private practice. Her experience includes stints in public defender’s offices in San Diego, and Riverside Counties. She was most recently Assistant Public Defender in Riverside County.
Macuga fills a vacancy created by the 2015 appointment of then Public Defender Raimundo Montes De Oca to a Santa Barbara County Superior Court seat.
