At a press conference this morning, District Attorney Lynne Abrahm expressed her condolences to the family of Larry Frankel, the longtime local American Civil Liberties Union figure who was found dead in Washington, DC on Friday.

Saying the two had worked together for decades, Abraham called Frankel a respected friend and colleague. "Larry and I had lots of heated discussions about philosophy and which way the law should go," she said.

"It's very sad that at 54 his life is over, but his legacy is not," Abraham added.
