Leala strongly believes in the difference between the goals of the police and the goals of the prosecution: It is the job of the police to catch the right suspect and the prosecutor's job to make sure the case against them is airtight. Because of this she acts cordial--but more professional than friendly--towards the investigators and will not tolerate any action that could compromise the integrity of the case--even when there aren't any suspects, yet.
An ambitious and honorable woman by nature, Leala worked her way through college to earn her law degree and worked nearly non-stop to become an effective and established prosecutor. On a more personal level, she has a well-behaved teenage son that she is very proud of but seems to have less and less time for and her marriage is growing strained.
Leala plans on running for judge once this copy-cat killer case is over.
