NO POLITICS IN THE COURTROOM
Defendants and victims of crime must be treated equally under the law. Without that, our legal system ceases to provide justice. The County Attorney’s prosecutorial discretion should not be influenced by political ideology. A prosecutor cannot ethically do a favor for a friend, a political ally, or someone with connections. Politics out of the courtroom!
Richard is running without any party affiliation because criminal justice should not depend on political ideology. Richard has devoted his prosecutorial career to fostering independent, informed judgment about the conduct of criminal investigations, presenting cases to a jury, and resolutions short of trial by jury. Richard has no patience for prosecutors who tailor the outcome of cases based on political affiliation, social status, or family connections.
