According to her bio, Stephanie Bridgett graduated from CSU Hayward (East Bay) in 1996 and graduated with distinction from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in 2001. DA Bridgett began working in the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office in 2002. During her career as a prosecutor, she has handled every type of criminal prosecution from misdemeanor cases to homicides. In 2017 she was sworn-in as the 32nd Shasta County District Attorney, making her the first woman to serve as District Attorney since the office was established in 1851.
