Haskell the clear choice

I have known Larry Haskell for about eight years. When I worked late in the Spokane County Prosecutor’s Office and walked by his office, it was never surprising to see him still working. He is one of the most dedicated prosecutors I know.

I once had a chance conversation with him regarding sentencing on a difficult case I was prosecuting. In 15 minutes he gave me more insight into felony sentencing than I had gotten in the previous three years as a felony prosecutor. He was the one who crystallized for me the importance of discretion and enormous power that a prosecutor has in charging.

Now that I am a defense attorney, I appreciate working with experienced prosecutors more than ever. You need a prosecutor who has the experience and proven sound judgment as your elected prosecutor. Haskell has both and is the clear choice for prosecutor.
