Attorney General Xavier Becerra Announces Charges Filed Against David Robert Daleiden for Criminal Invasion of Privacy

SAN FRANCISCO – Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced the filing of an arrest warrant detailing 15 criminal charges against David Robert Daleiden. Daleiden, along with co-conspirator Sandra Merritt, used manufactured identities and a fictitious bioresearch company to meet women’s healthcare providers and covertly record the private discussions they initiated.

“The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” said Attorney General Becerra. “We will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”

Please note that a complaint contains only allegations against a person and, as with all defendants, David Robert Daleiden and Sandra Merritt must be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
