If elected to office I will continue to serve and protect our community through the fair and ethical pursuit of justice. Our office will work hard to hold the guilty accountable, protect the innocent and preserve the dignity of victims and families. Our first priority is to aggressively prosecute crimes of violence including sexual violence, child abuse and domestic abuse. We work cooperatively with our partners in law-enforcement, CYS, and the child access center to insure victims are protected.

Although the core function of a DA’s office is prosecution it is equally important that the underlying issues that bring someone to court are addressed so they do not reoffend. If elected to office I will continue to expand the behavioral health diversionary program which diverts individuals away from the court system and into mental health treatment; implement a veterans treatment tract and increase alcohol and drug treatment options in lieu of prosecution.
