    I knew Mr. Dozier during the five years that we were both handling in-prison crime at Salinas Valley prison. These cases involved assaults by prisoners on guards and other prisoners. They were some of the toughest cases I ever handled. Mr. Dozier was excellent in this department. Mr. Dozier comes from the "old school," where attorneys have hundreds of jury trials under their belt. I believe Mr. Dozier holds the record for most felony jury trials in a single year. He probably will for all time.
