Biographical Information

How would you address prosecution of nonviolent offenses like disruptive public assemblies and marijuana possession? (30 words maximum)

How would you implement the NC Criminal Summons Law that aims to minimize mass incarceration? (30 words maximum)

How would you address incarceration of nonviolent individuals awaiting trial because they can’t afford bail? (30 words maximum)

What is your view on requesting special prosecutors to investigate and prosecute police misconduct or police killing a civilian? (30 words maximum)

Experience (35 words max) I provide well-balanced leadership and integrity. I have been an attorney for 26 years and was a prosecutor for 14 of those. A district attorney should have experience on both sides, which I have.
Individuals charged with nonviolent offenses and that have relatively good records will be given the opportunity to participate in diversionary programs whose goals would be to reduce recidivism.
As my county does presently, I would ask magistrates to issue civil summons instead of arrest warrants for minor offenses. In domestic violence cases, arrest warrants should be issued.
I would work with judges to develop a program that would attempt to intervene for those individuals who cannot make bond, including a safety assessment and voluntary reporting.
I believe that special prosecutors should be utilized to investigate and prosecute police misconduct or police killing a civilian. That would insure the integrity of the investigation and public confidence.
