The vice president of the Los Angeles Assistant District Attorneys Association questions when District Attorney George Gascon learned of jail tapes of a transgender child molester gloating about being slapped on wrist after pleading guilty to molesting a 10-year-old child in 2014.

“[Hannah] Tubbs was convicted because of Gascon politics. End of the story. The next question, I think, is when did he know? How did he know in terms of the tapes?” LAADDA vice president Eric Siddall told Fox News host Bill Hemmer on “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday. [Gascon’s] the executive management team was aware of these tapes in early February.”

DA GEORGE GASCON KNEW ABOUT TRANS CHILD ABUSE HANNAH TUBBS CALLS FROM JAIL BEFORE SENTENCE, SAYS DEPUTY DA

Jail tapes revealed this week show Tubbs admitting he was wrong to attack a 10-year-old girl in a women’s bathroom in 2014, but is gloating over the light punishment.

Tubbs was sentenced in January to two years in a juvenile facility because Gascon’s office refused to transfer the case to adult court, adhering to one of the prosecutor’s first-day progressive guidelines barring “children “to be judged as adults. Gascon cited studies showing that brain development is not complete until a person is 25 and argues that juvenile detention can rehabilitate young offenders.

“But I think the other crucial question that needs to be answered is this. You interviewed the spokesperson for Gascon yesterday. And yesterday that person said that because of those tapes they learned that criminals do disturbing things, they changed the policy on all the other cases that,” Siddall told Hemmer.

“That suggests to me complete incompetence on the part of the district attorney’s leadership team,” he said.

Gascon said in a statement on Sunday that he was not aware of the tapes until after the sentencing.
