Prosecutors in Contra Costa County have agreed to take a dozen furlough days and a pay cut, under a new contract agreement approved on Tuesday.

However, because it's retroactive, the deputy D.A.'s will have to take two years worth of cuts in the next six months.

That's a pay cut of almost 8 percent and 12 furlough days between now and July.
