Birgit Fladager

District Attorney, Stanislaus County
Year Graduated: 1986

Summary Bio

Birgit Fladager, ’86, became the first elected female district attorney of Stanislaus County when she took office in July 2006 following the retirement of her predecessor and her election victory. After serving on active duty as a JAG officer in the U.S. Navy for four years, she began working at the district attorney’s office in 1990. She was the first deputy DA to lead the Domestic Violence Unit and was promoted to chief deputy in 1999. Fladager was a key member of the prosecution team in the high-profile 2004 murder trial of Scott Peterson. The sensational case made front-page national headlines for more than a year, and her closing argument sealed his fate. The Modesto man is now on death row for killing his wife, Laci, and unborn son, Connor, whose remains were found in San Francisco Bay following their months-long disappearance. Fladager was re-elected to her current post in 2010.
