I see Rosendo Lopez Jr. on the complaint document. However, I do not see Mr. Saenz's name as the person filing the complaint again Josefina Canales.

Really you want to play that way? He is the DA and the documents I already posted show the signed complaint came from Yolanda Begum.

The DA is responsiible for all charges brought by his office
