About Sandy Kriegler
After graduating cum laude from CSUN in 1972 and Loyola Law School in 1975, Justice Kriegler worked for ten years as a prosecutor in the Office of the California Attorney General, where he successfully argued cases in the California and United States Supreme Court. In 1985, he began a twenty-year career as a judge on the Municipal and Superior Court, where he presided over 400 criminal jury trials. He finished his judicial career with thirteen years on the Court of Appeal, where he authored over 1200 appellate opinions.
Following his retirement from the bench in 2018, Justice Kriegler has served as a faculty member in CSUN’s Department of Criminal and Justice Studies.
Combining timely issues of privilege, race, and sexual misconduct, Hidden Behind the Robe provides a raw, behind-the-scenes perspective on the legal system. This is a book that could only have been written by a judge, like Justice Kriegler, who has seen it all firsthand.
What is really hidden behind the robe? Here is a hint--CSUN is the star of the novel!
