Haskell is pro-victim

After reading the Oct. 1 articles regarding the candidates for Spokane County prosecutor, the difference between the two became very clear. Larry Haskell cares about victims. Breean Beggs cares about criminals.

Haskell has the experience to hold offenders accountable, not hold their hand. Haskell supports reforms to the criminal justice system and will continue to use the alternative sentencing options and special courts available to him under state law, but he will do so in a manner that does not put our community at risk.

Haskell’s experience does not come from studying special reports or suing government entities, it comes from working day in and day out in the criminal justice system, seeking justice for the victims of crimes and the community as a whole.

Larry Haskell will keep the Spokane community safe by holding offenders accountable for their actions. He has my vote.
