San Francisco public defender Jeff Adachi was sworn into Wednesday for his third term.

San Francisco is the only county in the state and one of few in the nation to elect a public defender.

Mayor Gavin Newsom has yet to name a replacement for former District Attorney Kamala Harris who was just sworn in as California's new attorney general.
