Larry Haskell joined the military after high school and has spent 42 years as a military policeman, officer candidate, pilot, guardsman and retired lieutenant colonel. During this time he was also an undergraduate, law student, deputy prosecutor, fast-food worker, assistant U.S. attorney and now candidate for Spokane County prosecutor.
He also helped raise five children, and served on the Airway Heights City Council and Cheney School Board.
Breean Beggs has been an attorney for 23 years, but, absent some cases representing criminal defendants, his focus seems to be suing insurance companies and local governments in personal injury cases. He identifies his most recent jury trial as a Grays Harbor lawsuit for longtime felon Harold Rath, who was injured by a police K-9 while resisting arrest. Google “Harold Rath” for more information. The jury rejected the damages claim for this victim and lawfully utilized police K-9s were subsequently excluded from tort liability.
Haskell’s most recent jury trial resulted in an aggravated murder conviction. Haskell is not status quo. He is among our most hardworking prosecutors, and I am proud to be a colleague.
Which candidate has demonstrated commitment to community safety? Larry Haskell is the best choice for Spokane County prosecutor.
