Haskell wants alternative sentencing
A story that ran on page A1 of Wednesday’s newspaper incorrectly described Spokane County prosecutor candidate Larry Haskell’s proposal to offer more options for mentally ill offenders. Haskell supports creating alternative sentencing options, including treatment, for the mentally ill, similar to options available to drug users and sex offenders. Past coverage also has incorrectly identified who hired Haskell at the prosecutor’s office. He was hired by Jim Sweetser.
